U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend
by Philip Shabecoff
WASHINGTON, Jan. 25— After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.
While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another. – More here.
Massive super fail! I hope any liberals and pseudo-Christians reading this still have the ability to feel guilt and shame and can still blush.
Archaeologists say the wall formed part of the region’s first fortifications
A 3,700-year-old wall has been discovered in east Jerusalem, Israeli archaeologists say.
The structure was built to protect the city’s water supply as part of what dig director Ronny Reich described as the region’s earliest fortifications.
The 26-ft (8-m) high wall showed the Canaanite people who built it were a sophisticated civilisation, he said.
Critics say Israel uses such projects as a political tool to bolster Jewish claims to occupied Palestinian land.
Excavations at the site, known as the City of David, are in a Palestinian neighbourhood just outside the walls of Jerusalem’s old city.
It is partly funded by Elad, a Jewish settler organisation that also works to settle Jews in that area.
The wall dates from a time in the Middle Bronze Age when Jerusalem was a small, fortified enclave controlled by the Canaanites, before they were conquered by the Israelites.
Its discovery demonstrated Jerusalem’s inhabitants were sophisticated enough to undertake major building projects, said Mr Reich.
“The wall is enormous, and that it survived 3,700 years – this is, even for us, a long time,” said Mr Reich, an archaeology professor at the University of Haifa. – More here.

[Jerusalem --] The son of one of Hamas’s founding members was a spy in the service of Israel for more than a decade, helping to prevent dozens of Islamist suicide bombers from finding their targets, it emerged yesterday.
Codenamed the “Green Prince” by Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of the Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, supplied key intelligence almost daily from 1996. He tracked down suicide bombers and their handlers from his father’s organisation, the Haaretz newspaper said.
Information supplied by him led to the arrests of some of the most- wanted men by Israeli forces, including Marwan Barghouti, a Fatah leader tipped as a potential president, who was convicted of masterminding terrorist attacks, along with one of Hamas’s top bombmakers, Abdullah Barghouti, who is no relation of the jailed Fatah chief.
Mr Yousef, 32, a convert to Christianity who now lives in California, has revealed the intrigues of his years as a spy in a new book called Son of Hamas, much to the concern of Shin Bet, whose operations will be revealed in detail. – More here.

Latvian hacker tweets hard on banking whistle – Fat cat pay leaked all over the Baltics
A hacker has become a popular hero in the Baltics, and scourge to the authorities, by leaking information on the finances of banks and state-run firms to Latvian TV.
The whistle-blowing cracker, who calls himself Neo in an apparent Matrix tribute, is feeding embarrassing information such as the pay of managers who work for a Latvian bank that received a credit crunch bail-out to the media via Twitter.
The information reveals that bankers failed to take promised salary cuts after their banks were forced to take a state hand-out to stay afloat. Other juicy titbits involve undisclosed bonuses to senior staff at supposedly near-destitute state-owned firms.
Senior government officials are reportedly earning 2,000 lats ($4,000) a month or more while the salary of teachers has been slashed by one-third to $600 a month as part of an unpopular austerity package, AP reports.
The chief exec of Riga’s heating company, Aris Zigurs, received a 16,000 lat ($32,000) bonus last year, Neo has also revealed.
Neo’s stated motive is to expose waste and graft, a mission that has gone down a storm with the public in the economically-troubled country where unemployment is running at 23 per cent. – More here.

Nigel Farage faces reprimand after calling Herman Van Rompuy ‘wet rag’
The comments by Ukip’s leading MEP on Wednesday afternoon have generated a furious reaction in the European Parliament and across Belgium.
During a debate on Europe’s economic prospects, Mr Farage astonished MEPs and the EU president by launching an “insulting” personal attack.
“I don’t want to be rude,” he began.
“But you know, really, you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk.”
To loud protests, Mr Farage continued: “The question that I want to ask and that we are all going to ask is: who are you? I had never heard of you; nobody in Europe had ever heard of you. I would like to ask you, Mr President: who voted for you? And what mechanism – I know democracy is not popular with you lot – what mechanism do the peoples of Europe have to remove you? Is this European democracy?”
“Sir, you have no legitimacy in this job at all, and I can say with confidence that I can speak on behalf of the majority of the British people in saying: we do not know you, we do not want you, and the sooner you are put out to grass, the better.”
Against a background of growing protests, Mr Farage accused a visibly shaken Mr Van Rompuy of being a “dangerous” Belgian European federalist.
“I have no doubt that it is your intention to be the quiet assassin of European democracy and of the European nation states. You appear to have a loathing for the very concept of the existence of nation states; perhaps that is because you come from Belgium, which of course is pretty much a non-country,” he said.
Martin Schulz, the German leader of Socialist MEPs, called on Mr Farage to be reprimanded and demanded his resignation.
“It would be better, if Mr. Farage laid down his mandate, if the EU and the European parliament please him so badly,” he said.
Parliament sources have confirmed that Mr Farage has been summoned by Jerzy Buzek, the Parliament President, to receive an official reprimand, and possible disciplinary action, next Tuesday.
“He has been summoned to the headmaster’s office and expects a spanking,” said a Ukip spokesman.
Sources have told The Daily Telegraph that the controversy, widely reported by the BBC, was deliberately staged to promote Mr Farage’s appreance on the corporation’s Question Time programme on Thursday night.
Many Belgians are angered by Mr Farage’s description of Mr Van Rompuy, their former premier, as a wet rag.
“These English do not have any culture. When one visits museums it is Germans, Spanish, Italians, and French you see. The English ‘get more’ by asking for beer in low bars. You can recognise an Englishman by his football shirt on prominent paunch. His only reading is The Sun,” wrote one Libre Belgique reader on Thursday morning[,]
“The English are cretins, whose arrogance is only equalled by their mediocrity of spirit.” – Source
About Van Rompuy:
by Daniel Knight 3/24/2010/1:33 A.M.
Herman Van Rompuy was born On October 31, 1947, born in Etterbeek, Brussels, attended Sint-Jan Berchmanscollege in Brussels until 1965 and studied ancient Greek and Latin there. After that he studied at the Leuven Catholic Universiy and was awarded a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1968 and a master’s degree in applied economics in 1971, worked at the Belgian central bank from 1972 to 1975, was chairman of the national CVP’s youth council from 1973–1977, lectured at the Handelshogeschool Antwerpen from 1980 to 1987, and starting in 1982 has been a lecturer at the Vlaamse Economische Hogeschool Brussel, worked in the ministerial cabinets of Leo Tindemans and Gaston Geens from 1975 to 1980, was elected a member of the national CVP’s bureau in 1978, was a Belgian Senator from 1988 to 1995, and served as Secretary of State for Finance and for Small and Medium Enterprises from 1988–1993, was the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Budget from September 1993 to July 1999 in the two governments lead by Jean-Luc Dehaene. He was reelected in 2003 as a member of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives. In 2004 he was designated the Minister of State and reelected again in 2007 as a member of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives and remained a member until 2009. While he remained minister he was disallowed from governing as a representative. He helped drive down Belgium’s debt from a peak of 135 percent of gross domestic product in 1993 to below 100 percent of GDP in 2003.
In 2004, he stated “An enlargement [of the EU] with Turkey is not in any way comparable with previous enlargement waves. Turkey is not Europe and will never be Europe. … But it’s a matter of fact that the universal values which are in force in Europe, and which are also the fundamental values of Christianity, will lose vigour with the entry of a large Islamic country such as Turkey.” As a Catholic he would have said this to put pressure on Turkey to convert to Catholicism (for the spiritual or wordly benefits, or both).
Following the 2007–2008 Belgian political crisis, King Albert II, who was reluctant to take up the role of Prime Minister of Belgium, asked Van Rompuy to form a new government. He was sworn in as Belgian Prime Minister on December 30, 2008.

Recently (I think two days ago), Alex Jones, when he was talking about the Austin IRS attack, he made references to the government’s and banker’s abundant criminal activity as “lawlessness”, and knowing he studies Bible prophecy a little, it was obvious to me that he was referring to this verse:
For the mystery of iniquity already works: but he [the Holy Spirit] who now allows [this] will [only] allow it [to] continue until he [the anti-Christ] comes out of the midst.* – 2 Thessalonians 2:7. I had to insert implied words in that verse in order of it to be more understandable. Another translation that might be the correct one (I don’t know because I’m not fluent in ancient Greek) might be, “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he [the archangel Michael] who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.” (ESV). The second translation is maybe wrong because it’s not simply one angel fighting off/restraining demons and shielding people from them. Imagine how strangely torturous and frenzied Michael would be if it were just him alone for thousands of years doing that. Poor Michael! But, if that is the correct translation, it would make more sense to say Michael is taken out of the way, then the Spirit, as if the Spirit was just a limited servant who only had one task on Earth, unless, it means the Spirit is taken away from a certain location in which the anti-Christ lives and where some demon or demons have been trying to raise the anti-Christ to a position of very wide-spread authority and popularity (and then that would also make it so that Michael could also just as reasonably be the person being spoken of who is removed out of the way, since then it wouldn’t necessarily mean he was single-handedly (with God’s help) fighting off demons everywhere all by himself).
In other words: It will no longer be a mystery to the world as to why everyone with great hatred is disobeying God, because it will become plain who the anti-Christ is and that he is Satan, or “the beast” as Revelation says non-Christians will call him.
But what does “lawlessness” mean? Does it mean what Alex implied: people breaking the laws of the U.S. Constitution or laws or good laws of their own countries? Maybe. But more likely or in addition to that, its disobeying God’s word through forgetting it, and/or deliberately encouraging people to forget and disobey. Verses that came before 2 Thess. 2:7 are:
Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness! – Matthew 7:22-23
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what partnership does light have with darkness? – 2 Corinthians 6:14
Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness, for sin is lawlessness. – 1 John 3:4
And a related verse is in Proverbs:
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law. – Proverbs 29:18
Notice that it says “Where there isn’t any revelation”, in other words where God’s word doesn’t exist/isn’t able to be found” people will allow their hearts to run wild, will do whatever they feel like doing, but that those who remember God’s law will be blessed (the saved Christians especially).
But what is so special about this disobedience that God mentions it? The whole world has been disobeying God for thousands of years, and his word was no where to be found. Why does God act like the future lawlessness will be something special, or different from the disobedience while before he said that? To learn that you would have to come across these passages, and there are enough of them in plain language that those who have access to a decent Bible and have no problem reading and who have the time to, cannot say that these teachings were hidden from them or too hard to find, especially with mp3 audio recordings of people reading the Bible freely available (and in multiple/more than one language):
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator[...] – Romans 1:18-25
But the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, being seared in their own conscience, forbidding to marry, saying to abstain from foods which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For every creation of God is good, and nothing to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving. For it is sanctified through the Word of God and prayer. – 1 Timothy 4:1-5
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. – 2 Timothy 3:1-9
Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. – 2 Peter 3:1-6
And you shall be betrayed also by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends. – Luke 21:16, (Jesus was talking to Christians when he said, “you”).
As many know, a person who is ignorant of a good law and breaks it, is not as bad as someone who knows a good law and breaks it. Jesus taught this:
The master [Jesus] of that servant [the false or traitor Christian] will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of [Judgment Day]. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers [Hell]. That servant who knows his master’s will [God's unspoken commands which are in the heart of man] and does not get ready [obtain God's forgiveness] or does not do what his master wants [God' spoken commands] will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows [because everyone has the ability to learn right from wrong]. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. – Luke 12:46-48
Whether it is worse to forget the law and then break it, or to keep it mind and break it, I don’t know, but it is sure worse then not having know it at all, just as Jesus taught. The Bible teaches or implies this “knowing and forgetting makes you worse” principle in other verses:
“When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.” – Matthew 12:43-46
“In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” – 2 Timothy 3:12-14
“If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.” – 2 Peter 2:20-21
So now you know why this evil in the last days is worse: it’s being committed by people who knew God’s law but forgot about it or know it but break it anyways. But is this reasonable to say that this is the case with most of the world, billions? How can billions of people know God’s word, especially with all the different religions? It’s nothing hard to be exposed to God’s word. Like some atheists imply, it’s like a virus and multiplies. The Bible is the world’s most read, sold, accessible book, and the one written in the most languages. Further, the Christians spread his word everywhere, including partial Christians like Catholics, whose popes have sometimes reminded the world of the God of the Christians through their public speeches and when traveling around the world. Many people, even atheists, know about the so called, “the Golden Rule”, which came from Jesus, and know John 3:16.
But who are these people that will leave the true religion, who will deliberately forget (become without law in their minds and hearts and perhaps cut off access and destroy God’s word from external sources like cutting off access to the Internet or certain websites, disrupting websites, removing and destroying Bibles from libraries, book stores, homes etc., or heavily altering God’s word or at key points or removing verses (like Catholics have done with the engraven images law in the 10 commandments)? Did you guess Catholics? Catholics are the only Christian group that I know of, who, as a group, have removed a verse or verses from the Bible (the Catholic version) and who effectively forget that major law by bowing to idols, not even idols of Jesus, which wouldn’t be so bad if that were all, but who bow down to all kinds of idols, even supposedly divine ones on absurd things (the absurd signs obviously being a sign of sick-minded demon at work, whether directly or through some deliberately lying human). Catholics are also indicated as being the worst group on Earth in Revelation whose corrupting influence is widespread:
I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored beast, filled with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet. And she was gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman
- drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus
. And when I saw her, I marveled with a great marveling. And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, that has the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to ascend out of the abyss and go into perdition. And those dwelling on the earth will marvel, those whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills, on which the woman sits. – Revelation 17:3-9
The only modern “Babylon” (related to the Tower of Babel which was built by all the races of the world in an attempt to ascend to divinity), whose base is on seven hills, which is very richly and extravagantly dressed (very rich), which is associated for using a golden cup filled with red liquid, which has world-wide corrupt influence, even with royalty, yet which is not royalty itself (notice Revelation does not say that she has a crown despite her great riches), which has massacred many Christians, so many that God has singled out their massacres prominently, are the massacres of the Roman Catholic Church. The Church’s official name even begins with “Rome”, which is where these seven prominent hills are. The Catholic Church has been estimated by me and other researchers, as having killed or directly murdered about 50,000,000 people over 1000 years, and if you take into account the time when the Church was split into various kinds of Roman pagans in ancient times, you can include about 6,000,000 Christians, because that is how many the pagan Romans killed over a few decades. For confirmation of those numbers check these references (one is a book I think I’ve included at box.com, look to the right and look for the link that says, “The Difference Between Christians…” it will take you to various things I’ve written.
On top of all that, it over a billion members, so it’s truly a Tower of Babel culture/Babylon (made up of roughly the entire world). It’s leaders, some of them at least, including priests, even preach that non-Catholics (with the exception of the true Christians of course), will be forgiven of their sins and have eternal life, despite refusing to acknowledge Jesus as savior or worship him, or as long as they accept him as a good god. So in that way, they have even more members.
And as I’ve said in previous entries, a massive amount of Catholics are unfriendly, and nominal, nominal meaning they don’t entirely obey Catholic doctrine, and many obey very little of it, and are wild, like the one whom I said worshiped Randy Orton, who was so hypocritical that on her profile said she was a strong Christian yet boldy said, “My parents are my Rock”, giving them Jesus’ place! And remember that one of the prophecies in the verses I posted above said that these faithless Christians will appear to be of God, yet will not acknowledge his power and make hypocritical lies? again.
As I told one Catholic here who commented back on my Ken Ham and government post: I’ m not talking about a few Catholics I’ve met: every Catholic I’ve met has been very hypocritical like this, placing something above God, like tradition, or some sin, and forgetful of basic Bible verses. And how can anyone forget the at least bi-monthly reports of Catholics abusing children, and of all the types of Catholics to do so: their very priests!
Sadly, as I can say from experience and listening to other types of Christians, it’s not just Catholics that backstab Christ, it’s many types of Christians, the second worst type being Arminian Pentecostals, a type known for their endless near-begging for tithes and the absurd, embarrassing-to-true-Christians reasons for why people should tithe to them. In my experience, I’ve found A.P.s to be worse than Catholics in that they know and understand Scripture even better than Catholics, yet still twist it to suit their own personal belief that God either won’t send many to Hell, will give the world endless chances to be forgiven after death, or that God chooses to save a person (forgiving every single one of their sins – which is often billions of sins if not more – and giving them his eternal mercy and love) in as a reward for their (mere) inherent goodness or for doing (one or some) “good” deed or deeds.
In addition to the law-forgetting/ignoring Catholics and witches, there are also a huge number of atheists who abandoned Christ or who knew about the good laws in the Bible (not that there are bad ones) and yet forgot them or arrogantly and callously gave credit to them to mere humans, and not even Moses or Jesus, but to idolaters like the Babylonians, Egyptians or Sumerians, and one stupid atheist (who I’ve refuted left and right over things as absurd as whether or not Google is useful and whether or not you should do whatever feels good, and who cuts herself, who still doesn’t shut up or apologize for her endless insults), claimed that the entire Bible was “written by a Greek woman”. Yes, ignorant, but even more ignorant to say something based on ignorance. But that’s not the only bad thing about atheists, not even close: In the past 90 years they, as a group, have killed more than 150,000,000 people. That’s more than three times the amount killed by Catholics and in less than 10%. Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, Huxley and Darwin, leaders of atheists, with their evil commands and evil teachings caused the deaths of over 150,000,000, not including the dozens of millions of abortions committed by people who believed that there was no God to punish them for killing another human or who trusted anti-Christian atheists who literally claimed that babies were merely “meat” (yet ironically many atheists pretend they are good for not “eating babies” and they mockingly claim Christians say of them; talk about “blind hypocrites”) or “protoplasms” “without feelings” as if they asked the babies if they felt anything or not and the babies said, “No,” (what evil morons).
God was clearly right when he said, “A very evil person says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; none of them do what is good.- Psalm 14:1
In summary, the Bible’s prophecies about the last days being worse than the previous ones is true, and about it being because of some Christians who will abandon God’s laws and betraying other Christians and because of the worlds exposure to various truths and laws of God and yet choosing to forget them and go on doing wrong. These prophecies have come true and are coming true more and more every day till they are completely fulfilled.
At the moment, videos of the recent Earthquake in Chile are hard to find, Google’s search algorithim seems to have worsened or Google’s computer power can’t keep up with the flood of worldwide info, so, I’ve saved you the time of having to sort through the irrelevant stuff:

One or two days ago I encountered what seemed to be a cultic Christian on a file-sharing network, his user name half seemed to indicate he was a Christian, but the last part sounded like he was promoting a false god. So I asked him if that was what he was doing, and he scolded me (despite me not saying anything about these subjects) for being a polytheist and also said that Yahweh wasn’t God’s true name because there is no Y in Hebrew. I then asked him something like, “So why do Jews called Jesus ‘Yeshuah’?” He had no reply to that.
And a few minutes ago while doing research for something I was about to post on Bible prophecy, saw a link on a website over what Jesus’ name really was and discovered it was an old false teaching that I had read in 2004, which is that Jesus’ name is from a false god or gods.
To dispute in the contentious way that these people do (unless they are merely parroting and haven’t debated yet), is forbidden by God, through the apostle Paul, who called nonsensical arguing over words, “logomachy”.
I wrote a letter to this man seeing that he was disputing Jesus’ name in vain. My letter said (I removed a reference to his website location from my letter),
1) Does scripture teach to determine what the correct translation is of ANY word by cutting it into pieces and deciding if it matches the name of an ancient god? Is that even logical? Why not say, “You have to eat bananas first”? It has nothing to do with anything.
2) Your logic backfires AGAINST THE BIBLE on top of that, being that your same argument is used by anti-Christians to ATTACK THE IDENTITY OF GOD BY LINKING ELOHIM WITH FALSE GODS OF OTHER NATIONS. So you are AIDING the enemies of God.
3) The roots of the word are not known by their association with the names of gods, WHICH ARE YOU ARE FORBIDDEN TO MENTION BY THE WAY BY OLD TESTAMENT LAW, but BY THEIR CONTEEEEXT. The names of the false gods you mention are not magically defined in and of themselves by the types of gods those were, though it can help to know the meaning that’s not the only way, hardly, THEIR NAMES ARE BASED ON THE USES OF THOSE ROOTS. BIG, MASSIVE, “DUH”.
4) Moron: in what language is the NT originally? MAINLY GREEK and it’s not a Hebrew translation.
5) Using your logic if the name in Greek can’t be trusted, what the Hell are you using Greek scripture for AT ALL? Blind much? Once again your logic backfires AGAINST THE BIBLE ITSELF [...]
For those of you who think I was being to harsh to call him “moron” and to ask him if he was insane near the end of my letter: no, I wasn’t, because these days you can easily find the info you need on the net, a library, bookstore, or even a false Christian church, there is no excuse for major errors like this, and of all the things to misteach, to make a dispute over the entire English-speaking world calling God’s Son, “Jesus” which they’ve been doing for something like 300 years. The last thing the world needs is more confusion on how to refer to God’s Son.
What did this person say was Jesus’ real name? I don’t know, but didn’t care because the basis for his argument, was nonsense.
But here is a correct explanation as to why, in English, Jesus is called “Jesus”: http://www.biblicallifeassembly.org/library/pdf/Is_The_Name_Jesus_Pagan.pdf t call God’s Son

African Minerals Set to Become the Most Successful Mining Company in Africa
Africa is unique in its mining resource potential. The untapped mineral wealth that Africa offers will ultimately define the continent’s economic supremacy and give Africans more leverage in major economic decisions by world financial institutions. The emergence of leaders with vested interest in ensuring that countries in Africa are politically and economically prepared to meet the challenges of this sudden realization of wealth is ever more increasing. In Sierra Leone, the President, Ernest Koroma is presiding over policies that would attract foreign investment and provide securities to would-be investors, that are unprecedented within African economic environments.
Tackling corruption has become a priority of the government of Sierra Leone. Putting in place legislation that guarantees returns of investments without political interference is a prerequisite to attract foreign investment. And the recent decision to partner with the African Governance Initiative of Tony Blair must be an added incentive as the former British Prime Minister is keen on helping the Sierra Leone government overcome the problems of bad governance and provide on the ground assistance that will help the presidency steer through economic measures set to bring the country out of financial mismanagement onto the path of economic prosperity. Because of the success of the African Governance Initiative in Rwanda and Sierra Leone, the Liberian government has recently invited Tony Blair to assist in its strive towards good governance.
These are some of the factors that are bringing big investments into Sierra Leone, and African Minerals headed by its dynamic Chairman, Frank Timis, has capitalised on this attractive investment atmosphere to establish the biggest mining project Africa has ever seen. The company has recently announced the discovery of over 9.5 Billion tons of iron ore in Tonkolili in the north of the country. But the company’s emphasis has not only been to make profit from its ventures in Sierra Leone. It is also keen on engaging in significant social projects that will help lift the locals out of poverty and provide a better standard of living for the people. It seems African minerals has shown sensitivity to the plight of the people in Sierra Leone. The company is fully aware of mistakes made by other investment companies coming into Africa with only one aim – to make profit and leave the people who have provided the means to achieve this in abject poverty.
Frank Timis has a record of human compassion and he has clearly showed this by developing a strategy that will see his company build new schools and medical facilities that would service the deprived constituencies of the country’s masses. Frank Timis is qouted as having said: “My goal is to contribute to the economic growth of these regions so that their children can have the same lifestyle as my own children!” – More here.

Glenn Beck Was Against the American Health Care System Before He Was For It
by The Cajun Boy
In January of 2008, just 16 months ago, Glenn Back underwent “ass surgery” to remove a hemorrhoid. The Daily Show dug up video of Beck detailing how horrific his personal experience was, video that contradicts everything he’s been saying lately.
This should serve as yet another bright, shining example of how much of an utter fraud Beck is. You gotta give the guy some credit though — he’s a charlatan’s charlatan, a near-perfect modern television bullshit artist who fully understands how the slightest glance, vocal inflection, or codeword can plant a seed deep down inside of a feeble mind and germinate.
But still, it’s hard not to watch this clip and come away feeling that he’s an even bigger piece of shit than you probably thought he was previously, because it’s just so goddamn obvious that the man will do or say anything to dig his hook even deeper into the sad dolts who tune into to his show each day seeking guidance. – More here

Anointed Leader Of Conservative Movement Glenn Beck Now Believes In Global Warming
The stunning duplicity of Fox News host Glenn Beck has been exposed once again after the talk show host told USA Weekend magazine that he now believes in man-made global warming, after years of assuring his viewers that he was on the side of skeptics who questioned the science behind AGW claims.
In an article entitled Don’t judge Beck by his cover, Beck tells interviewer Dennis McCafferty, “You’d be an idiot not to notice the temperature change.”
“He also says there’s a legit case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind,” writes McCafferty, under the subheadline, “He believes in global warming.”
Beck’s sudden conversion to the increasingly debunked man-made global warming belief system is a shocking stab in the back of conservatives who consider Beck to be their anointed leader.
For years, Beck has railed against the insistence on behalf of global warming alarmists that “the debate is over” on man-made climate change, a claim that has been soundly trashed by the recent and ongoing Climategate scandal.
Even before Beck arrived at Fox News, when he still had his CNN show, he was attacking global warming as the greatest scam in history. – More here.
Does Glenn Beck really believe in global warming?

“Is this satire? I really want to know!”
That’s just one of many questions bloggers and Glenn Beck fans are asking about a Feb. 21 interview story in a leading national Sunday-newspaper magazine that claims the newest superstar among conservatives “believes in global warming.”
USA Weekend interviewed Glenn Beck for its article “Don’t judge Beck by his cover,”
“You’d be an idiot not to notice the temperature change,” Beck said, according to USA Weekend. – More here.
Beck’s Failure To Retract Global Warming Advocacy Provokes Online Firestorm
by Paul Joseph Watson
Becks Failure To Retract Global Warming Advocacy Provokes Online Firestorm
Glenn Beck has failed to respond to a firestorm of reaction to his comments made during a February 21st interview with USA Weekend magazine in which he completely reversed his position on climate change by revealing that he believed in man-made global warming.
As we reported earlier this week, Beck appeared to stab his conservative audience in the back when he told USA Weekend magazine that man-made climate change was occurring in an article entitled Don’t judge Beck by his cover.
In the article, Beck tells interviewer Dennis McCafferty, “You’d be an idiot not to notice the temperature change.”
“He also says there’s a legit case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind,” writes McCafferty, under the sub headline, “He believes in global warming.” – More here.
A few minutes ago I noticed some people trumpeting the recent creation of an RNA molecule as being evidence of how life started on Earth. One guy calling himself Kong quoted an entire phys.org article, which conveniently left out the cost of the research and creation of this article, and conveniently Kong left it out too. I said to him (not with bolding though):
HELLOOOOOOOOO!!!!! BACK KONG, LET ME REPEAT THE ESSENTIAL PART OF WHAT YOU POSTED BACK FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING YOU: “An extremely small RNA molecule CREATED by a UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER TEEEEAAAAM” AND CONVENIENTLY YOU LEFT OUT FROM THIS INFO (FROM SCIENCEDAILY): “Yarus’ work is supported by a $415,610 grant from the NIH.” DOES THAT SOUND LIKE NATURAL RANDOM CHANCE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE?
ALL DESIGNS AND SYSTEMS REQUIRE AN ORIGINATING CREATOR, THEY DON’T POP OUT OF NO WHERE BY ACCIDENT. ALL THE UNIVERSE FOLLOWS PHYSICAL LAWS, NOT NO LAWS, NOT RANDOM, NOT CHAOS.
Further: “In this paper the Yarus group has made the amazing discovery that even an extremely tiny RNA can by itself catalyze a key reaction that would be needed to synthesize proteins,” Notice it doesn’t say IT SYNTHESIZE[S] PROTEINS? Rather it says CAN CATALYZE “A” MEANING ONE SINGLE REACTION. So even if through the mixing up of chemicals without a hand, this molecule [came into existance, it] could only do one thing.
It took millions and millions of dollars, and many decades and countless researchers and artificial manipulation to get to the point where someone made this molecule. Anyone who says that this then is anything even close to evidence of information being able to naturally assemble itself into an ever increasingly complex and a self-replicating information system, doesn’t understand how complex even the simplest life-form is, and if they do, they are forgetful, extremely bitter towards God, a liar, or insane, or some combination of those things.[...]
From “Bacteria Study Shoots Down ‘Simple Cell’ Assumptions“, January, 4 2010:
In their report published in the journal Science, Howard Ochman and Rahul Raghavan, professors at the University of Arizona’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, reviewed studies that investigated “how a cell actually accomplishes” its necessary processes. They discovered “highly structured, multifaceted regulatory machinery, which is unexpected.”
From “Just How Simple Are Bacteria?“, 2001:
For many decades biology students have been taught the unscientific doctrine that prokaryotic cells are “primitive” in spite of their obvious complexity.1 Creation scientists counter that if it’s a living organism, it’s necessarily complex. Only those steeped in Darwinian dogma continue to maintain microorganisms such as bacteria are simple.
The trillions of cells that make up people and animals do not have a cell wall but a plasma membrane. Plants and prokaryotes (which includes bacteria) possess a rigid cell wall composed of cellulose plus the critical plasma membrane. Mycoplasmas are a unique type of bacteria in that they do not have a cell wall. However, they can be just as pathogenic (disease-causing) as some “ordinary” bacteria, with one species causing walking pneumonia, or PAP.
In 1979, evolutionist Thomas Brock suggested that mycoplasmas were of “special evolutionary interest because of their extremely simple cell structure.”2 But years later two authors stated, “Mycoplasmas can no longer be thought of as a simple organism.”3 Notice that with more research, the “simple” mycoplasma turned out to be extremely complex.
Creation scientists said as much, but of course were ignored. The same complexity has been discovered within other bacterial species.
E. coli: Testament to Complexity
The 2000 edition of the prestigious Annual Review of Microbiology contains an intriguing article titled “Interim Report on Genomics of escherichia coli”4 that discusses the bewildering complexity of this oft-studied bacterium. The article is replete with phrases such as “regulation systems,” “transport systems,” and other complex cellular processes. E. coli is an important bacterial species normally found in the large intestine. It is one of the most thoroughly and intensely studied of all microorganisms and is found any place where there are people or animals. Occasionally, E. coli makes the headlines when foods are contaminated with uncommon pathogenic strains of this bacterium.
Evolutionists traditionally have viewed bacteria such as E. coli as simple forms of life. These single-celled organisms, so the story goes, were one of the first life forms to have sprung naturalistically from an unknown ancestor several billion years ago. Therefore they “must be” of a simple construction.
However, contrary to evolutionary assumptions, laboratory research has shown even simple bacteria to be enormously complex. Evolutionist James Shapiro of the University of Chicago states:
The past decade has also witnessed the discovery of new phenomena, such as autoaggregation of chemotactic bacteria and coordinated behaviors in complex colony morphogenesis. . . . bacterial cells have communication and decision-making capabilities that enable them to coordinate growth, movement, and biochemical activities.

8.8 earthquake strikes Chile; cities throughout Pacific brace for tsunamis
The quake, centered 60 miles offshore, knocks down highway overpasses and buildings in the capital and the port city of Concepcion. At least 82 are killed, with the toll expected to rise.
Reporting from Bogota, Colombia – The death toll is expected to rise from a devastating earthquake that struck Chile after midnight Saturday and President Michelle Bachelet declared parts of her country catastrophe zones.
Interior Minister Edmundo Perez Yoma told reporters at a midday news conference that the magnitude 8.8 quake with an epicenter 60 miles offshore from the port city of Concepcion had left at least 82 dead.
The first television transmission of the damage showed collapsed highway overpasses and buildings in south Santiago, the capital, and Concepcion. As many as 11 aftershocks, some of magnitude 6.0 or higher, continued to strike the region throughout the morning. The international airport of Santiago remained closed Saturday afternoon
Coastal cities throughout the Pacific region were bracing for possible tsunamis. Hawaii was expected to receive a tsunami of 3 femeasuring et to 6 feet by midday. Waves more than 6 feet had struck the Chilean island of Juan Fernandez. – More here.

He also said that the financial condition of the Europe was “ten times worse” that the USA’s. A few seconds later he said, “Do you really think that they have anything better than what’s in the United States?”?
Busted Under Terrorism Act for Photographing US Embassy in London
May 11, 2009
from Charlie Veitch via youtube.com:
This is what happens when you film at the USA Embassy in Grosvenor Square, central London. After they grabbed my camera off me they held me by the wrists and watched the footage to see if it could be used by terrorists. They decided my footage was [dung] so they let me go after busting me under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act. I love the final 5 seconds of the film: SUDDENLY ARMED POLICE EVERYWHERE!!!!
Officer’s attacking people with cameras is nothing new: (1) (2), and though Britain seems to be the first country trying to make it against the law to take a picture of a police officer, corrupt officers in the U.S. already abuse the laws in their state to justify violating the rights of U.S. citizens. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I live unfortunately, Albuquerque Journal investigators determined that 70% of the disorderly conduct type behavior charges made by police, were without evidence or false. In fact, two years ago, one or two officers claimed that if I didn’t go back to my house that I would be arrested.
These are my answers to the rant titled, “Challenge to Protestants: Is the Book of Esther in the Canon of Scripture?” by a narcissist heretic Catholic named Taylor Marshall:
“The Catholic Christian has the comfort of knowing that the Holy Spirit can lead the Church to make infallible statements.”
And whatever you, financial supporter of the abuse of children, including children who trust in Christ – you, a member of a disunified, arbitrary denomination whose pope’s are too cowardly and dishonest to declare the Shroud of Turin as genuine due to their acceptance of demonic plagued stigmatics who receive “wounds of Christ” on the wrong place (on their hands, not their wrists, where the Shroud of Turin shows they should be which anatomical scientists agree with), member of a denomination that was deceived in ancient times by a stigmatic woman who admitted to being attacked by demon rather than showing the signs of God), member of a demon which calls a “saint” a atheistic, donation-misusing, explosive-tempered, sadistic, idolatrous approver-of-false-religions, demon-harassed nun (Mother Theresa), member of a denomination that killed approximately 50 million people for not converting to Catholicism including some other Catholics falsely accused of being witches (which they killed out of pride and/or coveting that Catholic’s property), member of an idolatrous church which approves of the removal of the command not to bow down to idols (when God said that no one is to remove any part of Scripture from his word), member of denomination that says they can be possessed by demons at any time, member of a denomination that does not accept the fact that Jesus suffered and died completely for all the sins of the ones he chose to save, that no one else can suffer or die for another person’s sins or complete payment for their own, and not just some, and member of a denomination that rejects the clear fact that God’s forgiveness, mercy, love, compassion, is priceless, rather than being able to be sold and bought as the Catholic church officially permits – whatever a Catholic of this type of church says is true, is true, because it’s God. WRONG. You are not God.
“How do you know that the Book of Esther is the inspired Word of God and belongs in the canon of Scripture? This is a question I often ask Protestants.”
And whatever you say is trustworthy is trustworthy because you said so. Wrong. And who are the protestants you asked liar? You sure didn’t ask me when I challenged you to stop supporting child abuse, and to explain why you persecuted Calvin for quoting Scripture when it said that Jesus suffered Hellfire – you saying that that was the worst heresy, when Scripture makes it clear that to claim that God’s Spirit is a demon is the worst sin and that tempting a kid who is saved is clearly the second worst or among the worst. It says a lot that Catholics keep ignoring the abuse of children.
“The Protestant literally has no way to prove that the book of Esther is inspired by God and belongs in the Bible.”
Wow Taylor: You mean God can’t tell them? So God only talks to Catholics? What an arrogant oversight that was huh? Why do you miss the obvious? So people can only figure out things unless God gives them the direct answer?
By the way stereotyper, for the 6 billionth time: Protestants aren’t a Church, stop talking about us like we’re all the same. That is why you are lost and unlearned: You, if you really did ask some Protestants anything, didn’t bother asking all the main types, or anyone older than 7 years old, rather you acted like they were all the same, and avoided any real challenge to your baseless heresies.
Where’s your basic imagination ability? Suppressed by Satan obviously (just as you Catholics claim can be done). Here: I’ll help you out again:
“Little 6-year-old Jimmy’s dad, Taylor, sat in his chair in distress, he said to his son, ‘Jimmy, I’m so stressed out: despite having a mind and brain with countless neurons, I can’t figure out what the true religion is. I can’t even figure out why the book of Esther would be God’s word or not, if it is or not. I know: I’ll just believe the pope whenever he uses the magic mantra: “God said so while he was sitting on his throne.” Which in the sacred holy language of holy people is ‘ex Cathedra’. Jimmy then said to his dad, ‘Well if God put it in his word isn’t it his word?’ Taylor got a look of confusion on his face, hating his son for saying what sounded stupid to him. ‘Idiot what are you talking about? What are you some dumb Protestant? One of those fundies?’ Though Jimmy didn’t understand what his dad said, he felt hurt at his dad’s tone. Then his dad said, ‘It doesn’t say it’s God’s word you moron! Now how are you, an unspecial little idiot going to say you know!’ Jimmy replied, ‘But why would God need to say he’s the one that said it all the time? Can’t you tell if he’s talking to you or not.’ Taylor’s pride was hurt and he became very offended and immediately pushed his son on the forehead. Jimmy felt very sad that his dad was being violent and that no one was around to see it. Taylor then said, ‘It doesn’t say it’s his word you little idiot. Want me to take you to that child-molesting priest?’ His son replied with a distressed pleading tone: ‘But dad it’s in his word.’ ‘How do you know what is his word you little bastard!’ His dad replied with a red face and hateful frown.’ ‘Because his Spirit is in me,’ his son replied. Taylor immediately replied, ‘Blasphemer! You don’t accept the pope! You can’t accept God’s word if you don’t trust in the pope as your savior! You are no son of mine to talk to me like this! How about we go to that child-molesting priest now! Huh! How would you like that you little fundie! I’m the one with God’s Spirit in me because I trust pope!’ Suddenly a demon entered his dad and it ran away from Jimmy and out a window, and his dad fell to the ground and died.
Was that so hard to imagine Taylor? Now little Jimmy isn’t right, as anyone can stick a book into God’s word, but are you right in your logic?
“It is never quoted in the New Testament.”
Why would it need to be quoted in the New Testament? Did God say, “Unless I quote a book from the Old Testament then it’s not valid.”? No moron, he did not. And your logic also implies that God would need to requote every single verse in the New Testament. Talk about “blind” and “without God’s Spirit” and “they have no common sense”.
Neither does Genesis say, “The next book after this one is going to be called Exodus, and that’s how you’ll know it’s my word, and this is what it will say: [...], and it’s going to be God’s word cuz I said so.” NOR DOES IT HAVE TO, BECAUSE MERE CLAIMS AREN’T HOW YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT GOD’S WORD IS. If you believe mere claims make you or anyone else right (but conveniently not those Protestants), you are biased and insane and think you are equal to God in authority despite what you MERELY CLAIM with your mouth. You suffer from narcissism, from extreme pride.
“It never mentions the word “God” in its pages.”
So if it mentions, “God” in some sentence, then that would verify the whole book of Esther huh? You’re an illogical idiot.
Neither does God need to say before every single sentence: “I, God says:”. No; You’re a moron. And that also shows your bad logic: So if something says, “God says,” then it’s his word? Are you massively illogical and gullible? YES. YOU DON’T FIGURE OUT WHAT GOD’S WORD IS BY WHETHER OR NOT THE PERSON WHO MAKES THE STATEMENT MERELY CLAIM THAT IT WAS GOD’S WORD OR THAT GOD WAS SPEAKING THROUGH HIM. How can you not know the utter obvious? It is because you are UTTERLY SPIRITUALLY BLIND.
“We don’t know who wrote it.”
You don’t speak for 60 million Calvinists let alone 120 million Protestants you royal “We” narcissist. You aren’t my spokesperson, you aren’t my king. Stop speaking for me and misrepresenting me stupid.
“Even the first century Jews could not agree on its place as Scripture.”
And only what the Jews agree on is Scripture is Scripture. NO: CONSENSUS DOES NOT DETERMINTE THE TRUTH! YOU ARE AN EVIL MORON. MAJORITY DOESN’T MAKE RIGHT LET ALONE A MAJORITY OF JEWS.
AND WHEN DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FIRST EXIST? ACCORDING TO YOU CATHOLICS IT WAS AT ABOUT THE TIME JESUS DIED. SO THEN, RACIST, USING THAT INSANE LOGIC, THE APOSTLES WERE NOT SAVED, DID NOT KNOW OR UNDERSTAND GOD’S WORD, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO CATHOLIC TO TELL ANYONE, “THIS IS GOD’S WORD.” USING YOUR LOGIC EVERYONE BEFORE CHRIST WENT TO HELL BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T TELL WHAT GOD’S WORD WAS. Catholics didn’t exist before Jesus was born Taylor, how then did any Jews or anyone at all know what God’s word truly was if only Catholics can know and understand how to be saved? Catholic tradition didn’t exist either, let alone “ex Cathedra”. So you would have the world believe that hundreds of thousands of Jews, even Moses and John the Baptist, perhaps over a million people that God saved, went to Hell because they didn’t have a pope in Rome with the magic “ex cathedra” line? Obviously God’s Spirit was given to those who were not Catholics and Catholicism then is not the one true religion as you claim it is. You current pope and the previous pope don’t believe that Catholicism is the only way to eternal life. What’s that say about your denomination’s unity when your own heads oppose millions of you on the heart of Christianity: Who the true God is and how to be saved? You’re right thoug: there is only one true religion, but TO THOSE WHO AREN’T SPIRITUALLY BLIND, you are clearly opposed to it.
“I sometimes also ask [and whatever you claim is true is true cuz u said so], ‘How do you know that the Book of Third John is the inspired Word of God and belongs in the Bible?”
Taylor, why are you repeating yourself? Why wasn’t Esther a good enough example? Is there something more special about the New than Old Testament? Did the Pope tell you to imply that the Old Testament, the Law and Prophets on which the New Testament is based, is inferior? No: why then are you speaking like a Pope having just said the magic “ex coooohtheeeedraaaaaah” spell?
“It doesn’t claim to be written by an apostolic author and its authority was doubted by many early Christians.”
Redundant genius: repeating yourself doesn’t make you right either, okay “vain repition” Catholic?: See above.
“The Catholic Christian has the comfort of knowing that the Holy Spirit can lead the Church to make infallible statements.”
So now you speak for all Catholics Mr. “Whatever I Say is True is True Because I Said, ‘I Haaaaaaaaaave the Spiriiiiiiiiiiiiit!'”, Mr. He-man Catholic? No: Whatever you say is not true merely because you feel you are, say you are, or say it with your magic, “Well I have the Spirit” spell.
And so all Catholics know and understand God’s word well, including the the millions of nominal (divided by their ignorance by you Pharisee Catholics) which are accepted into your false church as being Pharisees just like you? Amazing that despite the obvious disunity in your church you even speak for them as if you were all one. Truly: you are all one, and divided.
“Thus, the Bible is an infallible collection of infallible books.”
Bananas = oranges because many Catholics, not just priests abuse and molest other Catholic children, and that deserves having a millstone placed around their neck and them being thrown into the sea afterwards. How about not making illogical claims like that? Narcissist babbler who could care less about Truth, does this make any sense:
“The Catholic Christian has the comfort of knowing that the Holy Spirit can lead the Church to make infallible statements = Thus, the Bible is an infallible collection of infallible books.”
NO: FEELING COMFORT IN A BELIEF DOESN’T MAKE ANOTHER BELIEF TRUE. YOUR MERE FEELINGS DO NOT MAKE YOU RIGHT TAYLOR. And what happened to the Spirit? First it’s God’s Spirit justifies you because you said so, then it’s “comfort in believing you have the Spirit” justifies the magic Catholics. Which is it: your sacred, infallible feelings or God’s Spirit? You can’t serve two masters Catholics: You will love one and hate the other.”
“However, the Protestant must follow the line that R.C. Sproul often gives: The Bible is a fallible collection of infallible books.”
Uh, no, we must not follow R.C. Sproul; we must follow God as God alone, not whatever you merely claim is true, you hypocritical accuser. So do as you say but not as you do huh: “It’s okay for Catholics to follow their own mere claims, but not okay for those all-the-same Protestants to follow whatever R.C. Sproul says”? Typical Catholic: You endlessly contradict yourselves because you fail to see acknowledge that you are inferior to God and not like him in goodness.
“The Protestant can never give a reason for why he believes that Esther or 3 John belong in the canon of Scripture.”
You are God-hating, prideful, lost, blind, hypocrite and liar, and I will not read the rest of your bitter, time-wasting, slanderous, hypocritical, lies IN WHICH YOU PREVENT ANY FURTHER COMMENTS AFTER “105” NO DOUBT MADE BY MANY CATHOLICS, AND FEW PROTESTANTS, AS IF A FEW PROTESTANTS REPRESENTS 60+ MILLION CALVINISTS. ON TOP OF THAT YOU DON’T EVEN ALLOW THOSE REPLIES TO BE SEEN!:
With an injured right shoulder socket and muscles, and slow netbook, it took me about 40 minutes to write the bulk of this reply. And can you show your Catholic friends and us “Protestants” your Pope-approved, ex cathedra, Sacred-Tradition-reply Taylor, and not your defective, error-prone word? Clearly it would be just as bad as you all do the same thing: hold your feelings and word above God’s word and his traditions. I’ll praise you for this, “however”: at least your rant wasn’t filled with pretentious words. Your attitude, “however”, is a “different matter”.
So much for you being an honest and fair person.
