RT @Ron Culbreth After doing my devotion today, as is my custom to do each year on this day I read the Declaration of Independence. I found it says the same thing it said when it was penned 143 years ago. A part of the document says ” We hold these truths to be self- evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. We are assured in the document
HOWEVER @Robert Borders We have tens of thousands of refugees from Myanmar living within 20 miles of our house in Indiana and I have found the people to be delightful and very hard working.
RT @Jim Price As we celebrate the fourth of July and freedom I am reminded that 68 million, men, women and children are spending this day in refugee camps around the world. This is one of the highest numbers ever recorded.
One of the most desperate groups are the Rohingya who have been forced out of Myanmar. The U.N. says there are over 900,000 of them of which 600,000 plus are illiterate, 500,000 are children;all forced into a dense jungle like area in Bangladesh.
The U.N.through their member nations are trying to keep them alive. That’s like keeping a population the size of the Nashville area supplied through rough jungle roads. Just finding enough room for burial is a big challenge.
Just another way to compare our freedom and lifestyle here in America.
Rico Hero apart from the video (I dont believe in a Muslim antiChrist either but Ricky Grimsley may believe it ) a few questions
(1) for starters: ONLY the ones who take the mark of the Beast (whoever that may be) will not be able to buy or sell. Anything! Food, gas, electricity, water – absolutely nothing.
(2) The pastors will NOT be able to receive salaries, insurance or anything included in their package. Remember, if the church cannot buy or sale, neither can the pastor receive a salary. And even if a salary is given, what would the pastor spend it on without the mark of the beast?
(3) Tithing system – those are most usually set up with a paper check or some sort of electronic banking like debiting or crediting. With the mark of the beast, the church will NOT be able to receive those moneys and even if it does, it cannot operate with them to buy or sell anything.
(4) What about church buildings – without the mark of the beast they will not be able to purchase any service – electricity, lights, internet, gas for church vans, insurance, special events, catering, food – no communion elements. Nothing at all. With no professional services available, a church building may last a few months, but will fall apart soon before the Tribulation is over… Just think about it
(5) Any other church related logistics or operations that depend on the purchase of gasoline and transportation. They way current church infrastructure in America is set up, how many would actually take the time to walk miles and miles to a church?
