Hinduism and Budism's phylosophy of " if someone is suffering, that is his karma," is the justification of selfishness, this carismatically deranged phylosophy has influenced and caused many to eternal damnation. " You are to be an island unto yourself," is typical of Satan. Self sufficency and self reliance also aren't nessasary quality attributes. You relied on others to breast feed you, change you, teach you everything you know, there is know such thing as self taght, you can only aquire knowledge gained from others, the only differance is in if these things are learned directly or indirectly, self sufficency and self reliance never requires you to give back to those who helped you make strides or to train your replacements on this planet. An intelligent person may have the ability to aquire knowledge more readily than others but without help in formative years no one can achieve greatness.
Be wary of those who say to give your sins over to Jesus or to the cross. They are doing the same thing as done in New York, they are throwing dung at him and attempting to make Jesus unclean. This is purely satanic. You ask Jesus to cleanse away your sins by giving part of his spirit to purify you, and your sins go back to satan where they belong. Giving your sins to God is exactly what satan would desire, so this concept is from him.
Freedom is the ability to be in charge of your own destiny. To change your vocation, job skills, work location and terms, seek hapiness in hobbies and other. Not the ability to act intollerably or to incite others to do so as well.
A point of some contension is wether or not in the begining of Genesis the earth was made formless and void or became by some divine intervension.
Some have said this was the first earth age and that it became corrupt and had to be remade. This is not correct. Scientific evidence clearly shows that this time only lasted some 500 million years and the planet that became our moon crashed into the earth and destroyed everything. It was a short period of time and without the moon to stabilize the earth and the two working in concert advanced life wasn't practical. God knew we needed a large moon and this was his way of doing things, not to obliterate previous life.
The ark of the covenant flying out of the temple when Christ dies signifies the end of Judeaism. Instead of coming into repentance and correction the Jewish temple priests covered up thier shame. Instead of admitting that killing Jesus was wrong they probably sayed to themselves the reason the ark left was because they were collaberating with the Romans to ease thier conscience's and fuel unity for overthrowing the pageons.
The reason Paul failed in Athens was because he tried to integrate or conjoin God with pageon gods. I think Paul realized this was a mistake after he had done it. Some times you don't realize something isn't the way to go about things until after you have done it. Today government leaders are trying to integrate programs with faith based organizations. God is superior to all and doesn't need to integrate with coruption. This is Satans way of corupting by entering through the back door and in time polluting every fundamental principal. A current example of this is how the Alchoholics Anonamous program lost all of its effectiveness by trying to integrate different religions. They have gone from a complete success program to a joke with no credibility. Better to stand alone and be right than to join the crowd in hell. Another suggestion was that when Paul and Peter argued that Peter went sulking away. The fundamental principal of Christianity is to bring into correction and uplift thier character to an equal level. You don't take someone you want to be an equal with and put them in thier place. If a good man rebukes you his intension isn't to put you in your place, he wants you to become better, he doesn't desire an apology or you to be shamed but that you become an equal, same as you teach and uplift children to someday replace you. While it would be practical to put a heathen in thier place it isn't to be done among bretheren.
Hell is the impossibility of rational thought. If you can't understand why some people cannot understand a clear rational explanation consider where this is coming from. Some would have you believe Satan isn't here yet but this evidence clearly declares otherwise. Most of the time this comes from willful negligence and they think this is going to provide them an escape hatch, it won't. I don't understand why the Eastern Orthodox cannot see that abandoning rationalism has led to thier inabilities but it is maybe this lack of rational thought that doesn't permit thier return to authority. We will never fight an honorable enemy; if they have honor, they are not our enemy. " The darkness understandeth not the light."
Why have you lost custody of your children?
Satan has stolen them but God has allowed it! If you do nothing while his children are being slaughtered he will sit by and do nothing while satan is stealing yours. How to steal your children is not a new concept for satan, he just implements an old tactic, sieze that which you value most and you will conform to his will. Consider the aftermath, how could you be the head of a family if your children don't respect you. It cannot be done. They will not head you or think you are worthy of notice if you don't participate in joining God's Army. They will be in fact be ashamed of your presence and consider you a blight. They will consider whether this contempt for right is hereditary and could even be shunned by thier friends. The sick, twisted and whooped will be exposed as fools and not being against them is being for them. In fact if you allow them to go to a high school that teaches evolution and other phsyco bable then maybe you don't have the integrity to be thier guide. To allow them to be taught something you know is wrong and a lie is willful negligence. And if you are willfully negligent now, then what practical position can you expect to retain? It is like integrity, give it up and you can never regain it. It is a betrayal of trust to allow them to be taught phsyco bable and it is your responcibility to bring it to an end. Don't home school, drive the ignorant out of teaching positions. Banish them from involvement with children. Christ said better to have a millstone tied around your neck than to lie to children and you are escaping nothing by passing blame onto others. Go and sit in the classroom and listen to what is being taught and bring about any nessasary changes. Eliminate error when ever possible and teach probability. Knowing percentage of likelyhood clarifies much does much to bring about progress. Hypothesis and speculation are nessasary first steps but ignorance of failure brings shame. Retreating has given ground to satanic influences and this is not God's way then it should not be ours. Considering the aftermath of what will surely transpire helps to achieve that result by eliminating wrongful paths but be constant of your goal not its pursuit. It may be benificial to reflect on history but it isn't where you are at that is important but where you are going.
Some say that you should immediatly thank God for the blessings that you have just prayed for, that is to thank him before he delivers what you have asked for. This is negotiating in bad faith. If your child thanked you for specific presents the day before thier birthday you wouldn't be happy with them. You would be guilted into giving them what they thanked you for but you would feel manipulated and be left with a bad taste in your mouth. There is no differance in asking something from God. His promise to answer prayer should not be taken advantage of. You have 2 hands, feet, legs, and a brain, use them. Only pray for others and this will not come up against you on judgement.
When should you talk to your children about God's laws? Deut. 6:5-9
The correlation of the Hindu god Krishna being a poluted interpretation of Elijah can be done by quoting the Encyclopedia Britanica. " They relate how Krishna ( literally " black as a cloud") was born into the Yadava clan, the son of Vasudeva and Devaki, sister of Kamsa, the wicked king of Mathura. Kasma, hearing a prophesy that he should be destroyed by Devaki's child, tried to slay her children; but Krishna was smuggled across the Yamuna River to Gokula where he was raised by the leader of the cowherds, Nanda and his wife Yasoda. The child Krishna was adored for his mischievious pranks; he also performed many miracles and slew demons. As a youth, the cowherd Krishna became renowned as a lover, the sound of his flute prompting the gopis to leave thier homes and dance ecstatically with him in the forests. His favourite among them was the beautiful Radha. At length Krishna and his brother Balarama returned to Mathura to slay the wicked Kamsa. Afterward finding the kingdom unsafe he led the Yadavas to the western coast of Kathiawar and established his court at Dvaraka. He married the princess Rukmini and took other wives as well. Krishna refused to bear arms in the great war between the Kauravas and the Pandavas but offered a choise of his personal attendance to the one side and the loan of his army to the other. The Pandavas chose the former, and Krishna thus served as a charioteer for Arjuna. - Now consider the life of Elijah and look at the hard physical evidence of where Elijah was taken up to heaven. At the begining of the Krishna River the ground is scorched same as the ground at Mount Sinia. - The NIV description is " As they were walking along and talking together , suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and sepparated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. Elisha saw this and cried out, " My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Isreal!" and Elisha saw him no more." - Considering Elijah went to heaven at around 700BC and Krishna began at 500AD after 1200years this corrupted interpretation of Elijah showed up. Looking at the film "Quest for the Lost Tribes" available from A&E the evidence is clear.
