Vegetarianism: Telling people we can’t eat meat a doctrine of demons?

Paul clearly says in 1 Timothy 4:

1 But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron, 3 forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with thanksgiving. 5 For it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.

Bill Weise: “If you could see hell for just five seconds, you would never be rebellious towards God again”

“If you could see hell for just five seconds, you would not focus on how people have hurt or disappointed you. You would forget about yourself and start helping others escape this horrific place.”

Peter Helland & Mario Sims: Slave/Master Relationship — Many today don’t want to obey Christ | Many then actually were slaves

Sobering!

Peter Helland and Pastor Mario Sims discuss doulos, the Greek word for “slave”. They discuss why Mario named his church Doulos Chapel. And they discuss the reality that Jesus, Himself, took on the form of a slave and became obedient unto death, even death on the cross. And then they discuss the Slave/Master relationship, whether this relationship is a sinful and forbidden relationship in the Scriptures as most Americans believe it is or whether it is a relationship that God permits under certain circumstances. They look into 1 Timothy, chapter 6, the first few verses, which summarizes the New Testament teaching on the Master/Servant relationship. The purpose of the show is to reveal how drastically wrong our culture is regarding this extremely important Doctrine.

Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson

MY NOTES – Including transcriptions:

21:35 Skrbina disbelieves the gospel accounts of Jesus and doubts Jesus even existed: “I think he did exist. I think he was a mortal man. I’m not totally sure. I’m kind of on the fence on this one. But for the sake of this debate, let’s say he existed. …”

28:16 Skrbina claims many secular authors would have written about Jesus from Palestine in the 1st century, 2000 years ago.

Wiliamson: We only have one secular author’s work from Palestine on any subject, Josephus, who does write about Jesus: Continue reading “Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson”

Speaking in tongues

Medical research

[…]

Neuroimaging of brain activity during glossolalia does not show activity in the language areas of the brain.[67][68]

A study done by the American Journal of Human Biology found that speaking in tongues was associated with both a reduction in circulatory cortisol, and enhancements in alpha-amylase enzyme activity – two common biomarkers of stress reduction that can be measured in saliva.[73] 

Several sociological studies report various social benefits to engaging in Pentecostal glossolalia,[74][75] such as an increase in self-confidence.[75] Continue reading “[Wikipedia] ‘Speaking in tongues’: Studies show no activity in brain’s language areas — stress reduction & increase in self-confidence”

One of Ron Wyatt’s favorite subjects was ‘how the pyramids were built’. He was especially interested because he knew Imhotep, or Joseph, son of Jacob (Israel) was the builder of the first pyramid. His discovery of how these massive monuments were made was not something he set out of learn. It was an encounter at the tomb of Onias that led him to an amazing discovery.
