    It's because you've "never understood" that says it all.

    The vast majority of people only have a problem with Christianity, not religion.

    Ringo, you are absolutely right. People seem to cringe at use of the term "Christianity" or at the mention of Jesus Christ. Religion of any other sort or name seems to be fine, just don't mention Jesus. I have been told that now, in the military, Christian chaplains can't even mention his name (I hope that isn't true). Ain't that a fine howdy-do? Well, people will just have to get their act together because He's coming, and I feel it will be soon. "When you see all these things begin to happen, look up, for your redemption draweth nigh." I'm looking up!!

    G: No one is trying to push religion down anyone's throat. Comments have been made on here about religion and those interested in what is being, has been, or will be said have commented. If you don't want to join in the discussion, please don't. I have a suggestion, why don't you start a "Christian Bashing Forum" where you can spew your diatribe without being offended by other's comments? Don't think you will be missed!

    Very few people know the difference between Christianity & Religion. It's explained this way...Christianity is man getting to God, God's way, through Jesus Christ. Religion is man trying to get to God, man's way, any way except Jesus Christ. I always tell people..."If you're not looking for Him, He's not coming for you". Amen Oldgrunt, keep "looking up".

    Seems to me this post has turned into the NON Christian bashing forum. His remark was a lot milder than your response anyway.

    It hasn't turned into that yet but it is not a bad idea. G has a bad habit of Christian bashing so I thought he would be better satisfied in a forum more to his liking. The Bible tells us "...foolish and unlearned questions avoid knowing that they do gender strife." I don't care what one's religion is and I will not snipe at anyone for expressing their religion. If, however, you snipe at mine, I will undoubtedly say something in rebuttal. Religion (Christianity in this case) is a very personal thing to me. You can be a tree-hugger, fire worshiper or any other thing you want, that is personal to you and I will respect that. By the same token, I would expect the same in return from you. As long as we respect each other's belief (or non-belief) there shouldn't be a problem.

    Grunt, I want to comment here because we are far beyond seeing these things "begin" to happen, in fact, almost 70 years beyond. I find the number one "STUMBLING BLOCK"" of Christians today in face of realty to be Mark 13:30, without question the most clear of all scripture to understand, yet the most "IGNORED". Jesus, without question, makes it perfectly clear in this verse of scripture that the re-birth of Israel (1948) is the birth of the Last Generation on planet earth. Because I don't believe that Jesus is a LIAR or a LUNATIC, any way one does the math, there will not be another generation. No college for the kids or any kind of national debt to be paid by our grandchildren, it ALL ends here. Jesus said "TRULY" I tell you that this generation will "CERTAINLY" not pass away until "ALL" of these things have happened. What things? The Rapture of His church, the rise of the anti-christ, the entire Book of Revelation (Armageddon) and His SECOND COMING. Grunt, this includes every prophesy in the Bible in relation to the "Last Days" of the End Times we're living.

    Israel is God's timetable,and every global current event of today is in direct correlation with Biblical prophesy. God said that man's lifespan (generation) is "three score & ten" (70 yrs.). Add 70 yrs. to 1948 and you get 2018, subtract 7 yrs. of Tribulation and you get 2011. Again, any way you do the math there will not be "another" generation IF one believes the words of Christ. People get very upset when I point this out to them, but, I'm just the messenger, their problem isn't with me. I firmly believe that 2012 will be the beginning of the end. Thirteen months is still a long way off, however, suspension of the election of 2012, the possibility of Martial Law, chaos, anarchy, war in the Middle East, ALL are possible, and I believe probable before we get there. Again, I'm just the messenger.

    America was a Christian Nation until Progressivism took over for Communism

    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
    Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    In an effort to push to a 55th page of responses, let me say that as long as people continue to believe in an all-powerful being that doesn't really exist (regardless of which version of "god" they happen to advocate), this "deceased equine" will continue to be beaten - everywhere. IMHO, you don't need to be "a believer" to know what's right and wrong, or to recognize a tangible threat to your natural freedoms and liberties.

    Wake up people. Waiting for "god" to come down and rescue you is just as pointless as watching a reality TV show and expecting "reality".
