A Voice from Hell

"Oh, why am I here in this place of unrest When others have entered the land of the blest? God's way of salvation was preached unto men; I heard it and heard it, again and again. Why did I not listen and turn from my sin And open my heart and let Jesus come in? For vain earthly pleasures my soul did I sell— The way I had chosen has brought me to hell. I wish I were dreaming, but ah, it is true. The way to be saved I had heard and I knew; My time on the earth, oh, so quickly fled by, How little I thought of the day I would die. When God's Holy Spirit was pleading with me, I hardened my heart and I turned from His plea. The way that was sinful, the path that was wide, I chose and I walked till the time that I died. Eternally now, I must dwell in this place. If I from my memory could but erase The thoughts of my past which are haunting me so. Oh, where is a refuge to which I can go? This torture and suff'ring, how long can I stand? For Satan and devils this only was planned. God's refuge is Jesus, the One that I spurned; He offered salvation, but from Him I turned. My brothers and sisters I wish I could warn. Far better 'twould be if I had not been born. The price I must pay is too horrid to tell— My life without God led directly to Hell." Oh, soul without Christ, will these words be your cry? God's Word so declares it that all men must die. From hell and its terrors, Oh, flee while you may! So, come to the Saviour; He'll save you today!

Halloween - Kid's Treat or Pagan Trick

If you must give Candie to feel part of your neighborhood.

Try putting some Candie in a sandwich bag with a Halloween Track.

This way you may reach someone for Christ at the same time.

Halloween - Kid's Treat or Pagan Trick

Many Christians celebrate holidays such as Halloween without thinking about their origins or true
meaning. It is impossible to separate Halloween from the Druids because they originated the "holiday".

For several hundred years before Christ, the Celts inhabited what is now France, Germany, England, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic priests were called Druids. These people were eventually conquered by the Romans. Information about the Celts and Druids comes from Caesar and the Roman historians, Greek writings from about 200 B.C., and very early records found in Ireland.

Greek and Roman writings about the Druids dwell heavily on their frequent and barbaric human
sacrifices, but detail the Druid's use of magic to raise storms, lay curses on places, kill by the use of spells, and create magical obstacles. Davies, however, a 16th century writer who traced his family back to Druids priests who fought against Caesar, clearly describes the human sacrifices of his ancestors and the secret sacrifices still performed regularly by the Druids of his time.

By 47 A.D., Rome finally defeated the Druids in England and outlawed human sacrifices. The few
remaining Druids went underground. Today a growing group of people claiming to be of direct Druid descent still practice their religion including human sacrifice. Those in England still perform ceremonies at Stonehenge.

November 1st was the Celtic New Year. October 31st was celebrated by the Druids with many human sacrifices and a festival honoring their sun god and Samhain, the lord of the dead. They believe that the sinful souls of those who died during the year were in a place of torment, and would be released only if Samhain was pleased with their sacrifices.

Monks Fascinated By Druids

Irish records tell of the fascination the Catholic monks had with the powerful Druids, and the Druids soon became important members of their monasteries. Pope Gregory the Great decided to incorporate the Druid's holiday into the church. He made the proclamation, "They are no longer to sacrifice beasts to the devil, but they may kill them for food to the praise of God, and give thanks to the giver of all gifts for his bounty."
Pope Gregory III moved the church festival of October 31st to November 1st and called it All Hallows or All Saints' Day. Pope Gregory IV decreed that the day was to be a universal church observance. The term Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve.

The founding fathers of America refused to permit the holiday to be observed because they knew it was a pagan holiday. Halloween was not widely celebrated in the U.S. until about 1900. In the 1840's there was a terrible potato famine in Ireland which sent thousands of Catholic Irish to America. They brought Halloween with them.

The modern custom of going from door to door asking for food and candy goes back to the time of the Druids. They believed that the sinful lost souls were released upon the earth by Samhain for one night on October 31st while they awaited their judgment. They were thought to throng about the houses of the living and were greeted with banquet-laden tables.

Pumpkins to Scare Demons

People greatly feared these spirits and thought that the spirits would harm and even kill them if the
sacrifices they gave did not appease Samhain. They carved demonic faces into pumpkins or large turnips, placing a candle in them to keep the evil spirits away from the homes.

The tradition of bobbing for apples and giving out nuts came from a Roman addition to the Druidic New Years Eve. The Romans worshipped Pomona who was the goddess of the harvest. They combined their harvest festival to Pomona with Halloween.

Very little archeological evidence of the Druids has been found, but there is excellent agreement between the Roman and Irish documents. Both clearly state that the knowledge of the Druids was never committed to writings but passed from generation to generation by oral teaching. This was to protect their secrets. In his writings, Davies indicates that he came under much persecution by his family for putting in writing his information about Druids.

The same is true today. Nothing is put into writing. The Druids continue on secretly with much the same traditions. The widespread problem of harmful substances such as razor blades, drugs, poisons, needles, etc. being placed in Halloween treats here in America is no accident. Testimonies of several ex-Satanists show that these children killed and injured by the "treats" are sacrifices to Satan (or Samhain). Satanists throughout the world continue to perform human sacrifices on Halloween.
Is this something you want your child to participate in?

I'm glad my title got your attention.

This has nothing to do about Sex.

I remember when I was in school, when I got a x this meant I was wrong.

Yes" the glory land is not always right. And I will not be afraid to say so.

Three xxx in the Church today.

x Where the Father Son and the Holy Spirit are not one. And where the Bible is being replaced with Mans books.

xx Where the members are trying to work there ways to Heaven being faithful to Mans commandment not God's.

xxx Where the Church is full of activities, Games, Idols, to attract people and were people or not getting Saved. "But are having fun"

"XXX In The Church" by theglorylandthegloryland, 29 Aug 2008 16:13

Blessings Edwin,

An interesting article, but I would like to address the following two comments.

One of the questions often asked by those who practice open and close communion is, “What about the apostle Paul, didn’t he observe the Supper with the churches he ministered to?” The answer is a simple and straightforward, “NO.”

There is no proof in the New Testament that Paul ever observed communion with any church.

The Bible does in fact confirm that Paul dld partake of communion, such as in Acts 18:21

"but took leave of them, saying, I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, God willing. And he sailed from Ephesus." Acts 18:21

What should be remembered is that this must be referring to the communion feast as it is hardly likely an apostle such as Paul must "by all means keep" the feast unless it was relevant to a christian "feast" or practise as there would be no carnal or Jewish feast that he would feel compelled to keep.

His priority was Christ and His service alone, and the term "feast" was commonly used to refer to the Eucharist by both the early apostolic Church and throughout church history.

Peace and love to you always

David Lazarus

Communion: Open? Close? Closed?

As stated in the title, there are the three basic views of communion which are generally embraced among Baptists and Protestants alike. But which is correct? Since all differ from one another, they cannot all be right.

But, before we go any further, we must agree upon “Who” or “What” will determine a correct or an incorrect position on this subject. And, also, “Who” or “What” will be the final authority governing what we believe about this ordinance.

The Bible must be our Final Authority on this subject, (II Tim. 3:16-17).

Now, let us briefly examine these three positions to see which of them most closely adheres to the Bible pattern.

• OPEN COMMUNION (The Interdenominational Way)

The basic position of those who hold to open communion is twofold:

The Supper is open to all who love the Lord Jesus in sincerity and truth.

Question: Who should determine who loves the Lord Jesus in sincerity and truth, the prospective participant, or the church to whom the Lord Jesus has entrusted this ordinance?

Since it is the Lord’s Supper, no church has the right to prohibit anyone from partaking.

Question: Is the Lord’s Supper a Christian ordinance or a church ordinance?

If it is a Christian ordinance then every Christian has a right to partake of it when and where he may choose.

If it is a Christian ordinance, then is baptism also a Christian ordinance, or are they both church ordinances?

If these are both church ordinances then the observing church has Christ’s authority to govern them.

• CLOSE COMMUNION (The Denominational Way)

Those who hold to close communion are opposed to both open and closed communion. These are “Middle Ground” Christians.

Their position is also twofold:

All of the same “faith” (of the same denomination) are free to observe the Supper with any church in their denomination.

Membership in their denomination is the determining factor as to who can and who cannot observe the Supper with them.

Question: Where is denominationalism found in the Bible? If it can be found in the Bible, then close communion is the correct way, and both open and closed communions are wrong.

Question: Which term is used most often in the New Testament: “denomination” or “church”?

The word “church” is used 76 times and “churches” (plural) 37 times in the New Testament with not one hint of denominational association among them.

The teaching or principle of denominationalism cannot be found in the New Testament.

Denominationalism is a man conceived and man promoted idea.

There is no such thing as “The Baptist Church” or “The Baptist Denomination” taught in the New Testament; both are unscriptural terms.


That closed communion is Scriptural may be proven using the following arguments:

Its Institution Acclaims it

It is my firm conviction Jesus instituted the Supper as a closed ordinance since all the church was not allowed to observe it that first time. Acts 1:15 reveals the membership of the Jerusalem church at that time: “And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty).” But, how many were in attendance when the Lord instituted His Supper? There were only eleven. Where were the rest of those 120 members? They were observing the Passover with their families in obedience to the Word of God. Jesus had not invited them to be with Him and the apostles when He instituted the Supper. Therefore it began as a closed ordinance.

It Was Closed To Unbelievers When It Was Instituted

Mark 14:18-20 says, “And as they sat and did eat, (the Passover) Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with Me shall betray Me. And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto Him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I? And He answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with Me in the dish.” When we compare this passage with John 13:27-30 we can see exactly when Judas left this group to betray the Lord. “And after the sop (the Passover sop, ‘ he that dippeth with Me in the dish ’) Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. Now no man at the table knew for what intent He spake this unto him. For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. He then having received the sop (Passover sop) went immediately out: and it was night.” Judas left the group as they were observing the Passover and the Lord waited for him to leave before He instituted His Supper.

Thus, in its institution the Supper was closed to unbelievers.

Question: If the Supper is open to all, how would the observing church know whether the visitors in their midst were genuine believers?

Without doubt, Judas had also claimed to love the Lord Jesus in sincerity and truth.

One thing is for sure. The Supper was instituted with only saved, faithful church members present.

Church Discipline Demands it

In his letter to the church at Corinth, the apostle Paul first introduced his teaching on the Lord’s Supper in chapter five and then concluded it in chapter eleven. “But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat” (I Cor. 5:11).

This command to not eat the Lord’s Supper with ungodly people was given to a local church. And the Supper is to be observed only in a local church.

This command also requires the local church to judge and to exercise authority over all with whom they observe the Supper.

It is unlikely and improbable that those who observe open or close communion will obey this command.

Question: If a stranger came into their midst who claimed to love the Lord Jesus or who was a member of a Baptist Church in a distant city, how could they know whether this person was a godly Christian? And, if they let this person eat with them, could they be sure they were obeying this command governing the Table?

To disobey the Scriptures is a sin. The only way a church can be reasonably sure it is obeying the Word of God in regards to communion is to practice closed communion.

New Testament Practice Confirms it

One of the questions often asked by those who practice open and close communion is, “What about the apostle Paul, didn’t he observe the Supper with the churches he ministered to?” The answer is a simple and straightforward, “NO.”

“But what about Acts 20:7 when he came to Troas? Wasn’t he observing the Supper with the church in that city?” The answer is the same, “NO.”

Question: What does this verse actually say? “And upon the first day of the week, (Sunday) when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow, and continued his speech until midnight.” After midnight a man sitting in the balcony went to sleep and fell out a window and appeared to be dead. Paul ministered to him and revived him, and then in verse eleven we are told, “When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked along while, even till break of day, so he departed.”

If breaking bread in verse seven means to observe the Lord’s Supper, then so does it also in verse eleven. If this is so, then Paul and the church observed the Supper on Sunday and then again on Monday.

They were not observing the Supper because there was no cup mentioned in either instance. The Lord’s Supper requires both the bread and the cup.

“Breaking bread” was a term used when sitting down to a common meal. This term is still in use today.

There is no proof in the New Testament that Paul ever observed communion with any church.

If this cannot be proven, then open or close communion cannot be proven as a New Testament practice.

Question: Which of these three practices, open, close, or closed, most closely follows Biblical teaching and pattern?

From a careful examination of the Scriptures, it is evident that closed communion most closely adheres to the Biblical pattern.

"Cotton Candy" Religion

Religion has gotten popular! It’s sweeping the country!! Juke boxes grind out the latest popular hymns!
Movie magazines carry news of religious activities of the movie stars! More money is coming into religious treasures than ever before. Great new church buildings are being built. A greater percentage of folks belong to churches than ever before in history! Tremendous evangelistic campaigns are regularly held and thousands are in attendance and great numbers of decisions are recorded.

Quite regularly the current best-seller is a book on religion. The newspapers and magazines carry regular columns by religious writers. The radio and television carry religious programs! Religious Universities, Colleges, High Schools, and Elementary Schools are growing by leaps and bounds!

Religion is booming! The cry of “Revival” is heard over and over!!
Religion is back — by popular demand! The tragedy is that it has been diluted, streamlined, whooped up, condensed, smoothed out, made palatable enough to meet what the public demands in a religion. Instead of meeting the demands of God, religion has been changed to meet the demands of the public!!

In the haste to get everybody aboard the “bandwagon” a “carnival” spirit has developed. The bands are playing, the flags are flying, and everyone is invited to a hayride of happiness — a religious romp! Popcorn, peanuts, and paper hats. It reminds me of the first time I took my youngest boy, David, to the Cincinnati Zoo. He was about four years old at the time. It was on this trip that he got his first glimpse of “cotton candy.” We stopped and he watched with great delight as the man behind the counter very skillfully spun the large, beautifully colored sticks full of this wonderful stuff. After watching with envy the others who were receiving this delicious looking delight he turned pleading eyes to me and the purchase was made. I never will forget the look of delight that came on his face as he held the huge, colored concoction and took his first bite. As the cotton dissolved into nothing in his mouth a look of amazement and disappointment took the place of delight.

Appearances had been deceiving. Thus it is with our modern “cotton candy” boom in religion! It’s big and beautiful until you really try to get your teeth into it and dissolves into nothing.
It could also be compared to “bubble gum” — it makes a fine showing until it breaks and leaves behind a sticky mess!!
The popularity that religion enjoys has been purchased at a terrific price. The desire to please man has supplanted the desire to please God. Today’s religion is designed to satisfy the carnal appetites of carnal Christians and the unregenerate. “What do I get out of it” is the approach made to this religion. When the services are entertaining and make the participants “feel good” they are stamped as successful. The world’s methods and manner are as in the business world. Finances and figures have been made the test. A lot of people and a lot of money are interpreted as the sure blessing of God. It is considered sacrilege to question the doctrine or the ethics of anyone who has been successful in gathering a large crowd and abundant cash!
In view of the seeming boom in religion it would be well to consider what has happened to the gospel!!

What little gospel is preached is of such a shallow, frothy nature that it would bring a snort of disgust from such a one as the Apostle Paul. The strong message of the gospel has been so diluted as hardly to be recognizable. Sickeningly cheap, sentimental appeals are made for sickeningly cheap, sentimental decisions! What has happened to the sledge hammer messages concerning the hideous corruption of sin?
Has the day of identifying the sinner past? Today it is advertised so that no one will be offended at the preaching of the gospel!! What a change! What a come down!! The gospel has always offended! It offends Satan! It offends the guilty sinner and either brings him to repentance or hardens his heart! It offends the carnal Christian!!! It offends the false teachers and their followers! It offends the promoters of sin and sinful pleasure! In today’s gospel the question of sin is dealt with in such generalities that it is almost impossible to determine who is guilty!

Repentance has become a forgotten doctrine confined to the yellowing pages of neglected articles of faith. What used to mean “Godly Sorrow” doesn’t even involve mild embarrassment today! The crowds have never responded very well to true repentance so modern religion by popular demand has discarded it. Faith has been reduced to a mere head consent, a hand shake, and a card signed.

Today’s gospel has been watered down so thin it has lost the miracle working power of regeneration and is producing a shallow, casual, unregenerated religion.

Contrary to the popular idea that we are in the midst of revival stand some undeniable facts that show we are in the midst of a time of apostasy!!! There is a great “falling away!"
First of all consider the moral condition of our country. The figures have been published so many times they do not need to be reprinted here. Crime is at an all time high!! Juvenile delinquency increases every year!! Divorce rates climb every year. Jail houses, penitentiaries and detention homes are packed to overflowing!!

Drunkenness and dope addicts mounts with each passing day! Illegitimate births and abortions increase ever year. Murder, rape, suicide, robbery, scream the headlines of our papers!! Sex mad and whiskey soaked! The nation reels down the path of the pursuit of Pleasure!! Check the material in the popular books, songs, radio and television shows, movies, etc. and get a glimpse of what appeals to America. True revival will check the flood tides of sin!! This has not happened in today’s so-called revival!!
It is not producing hatred for sin and love of righteousness!! It does not demand that Christians live a separated dedicated life to God.
Second, consider the rapid rise and growth of a multitude of cults and false religions. This is not revival!!

Real revival brings men and women a love for the truth. The entire revealed truth of God is not declared in the Gospel of today so the “converts” wander off after whatever religion suits their particular fancy. The keynote today is compromise. Everybody is to forget their “petty doctrinal differences” and join hands in a “great compromise.” In the midst of this kind of atmosphere false cults and religions are booming!

Modernism marches on!!!

Third, consider the shallow carnal Christian today’s so-called “revival” produces, indeed, if it produces any Christians. May God help us to return to a gospel that glorifies God, antagonizes Satan, squelches sin, convicts sinners, produces repentance, routs false teachers, abolishes false religions, promotes sound doctrine, and brings about the miracle of regeneration that makes a hell bound sinner into a new creature in Christ Jesus.

Sin Of Dressing Immodestly

By H. B. Taylor, Sr.

We heard a man, who is a father, a Sunday School teacher of a class of women, a Baptist deacon, a member of more than one denominational board, say the other day that he would not walk down the streets of the city in which he lived with his own daughters because of the way they dressed. The daughter of a former prominent Baptist secretary in Kentucky, who now lives in another state, argued at length when on a visit to Kentucky in favor of nudity like Adam and Eve. She also sneered and pooh- poohed the Bible on women's dress.

A Louisville Seminary professor's wife not only defended immodest dress but argued there was nothing in the Bible against it. What colossal ignorance of the Bible! Ignorance of the Bible is a great enemy of the truth. But note the birds of a feather: immodest dress, modernism, ignorance of God's Word, women speaking four of a kind.

But what saith the Scriptures? If they speak not according to God's Word, it is because there is no light in them.

1. Women who dress immodestly are the tempters of men.

The Son of God said: "Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Matt. 5:28. Immodest dress, mixed bathing, the movies, beauty revues and such like are included in this far-reaching indictment by the Son of God. A terrific indictment by the Son of God of young women for their shamelessness.

2. David Fell From Looking at a Naked Woman.

Read the whole story in 2 Sam. 11 and 12. Adultery with another man's wife, the murder of her husband, God's curse and vengeance on David and Bathsheba, the son of Ammon and his murder of Absalom are some of the terrific penalties that a "man after God's own heart" had to pay for looking at a naked woman.

Read the court records today and you will find many similar records in our modern criminology. The best of men are not free from this temptation unless kept by the power of God. Witness how many preachers from all denominations go that route to their downfall today.

Immodest dressing is no little sin. All women who dress thus are sinners against a Holy God and weak men. In Matt. 18:6-10 the Lord Jesus plainly says that any woman, who thus causes men to stumble, had better have a millstone tied around her neck and be cast into the sea. The Master's woe applies to other sins as well as this one.

3. Half-Dressed Women Not in Right Mind.

The demon-possessed man out of whom the Lord Jesus cast a legion of demons, went naked as long as he was crazy. Nakedness in men or women is a proof of demon possession. As soon as the Lord Jesus cast the demons out of him and he became in his right mind, he clothed himself. It is ever so. Nakedness is a mark of the worst of sins and of being under the control of evil spirits. Take your choice. Immodestly dressed women are either lewd or out of their right mind, according to the infallible Bible. Plenty of clothes are a Bible mark of sanity and piety.

The "Pornography Is Harmless" Myth

By Dr. John E. Russell

I heard the emergency call over the hospital PA. I ran to ER via the back entrance. A young soldier was on the verge of losing self-control, in a room to the left—his Major was with him. I stayed for awhile, trying to calm him from the horror he had just witnessed. A young sergeant had just shot a young female soldier in the head and then shot himself in the head. When the psychiatric social worker arrived, I left him and stopped outside ER, where a nurse pointed me to the sergeant's wife in the lobby. She told me that she wanted to see her husband. After she assured me that she could handle it, I left her with a nurse who escorted her into the ER. The young female soldier had accused the young male soldier of rape earlier that week. I was an Army Reserve Chaplain on active duty at the Post Hospital.

As an active duty Army Chaplain, I had seen firsthand the stress separation places on marriages. In Vietnam, I visited orphan homes of GI babies. We all know the awful hardship that these children have had to endure. I saw a Vietnamese woman agonize in prayer at the chapel altar. Her live-in boyfriend had left her with a baby and gone home to the US.

As a Texas Army National Guard Chaplain, I had no problem getting my commander's permission to remove pornographic literature from the North Fort Hood PX. It was satisfying to push a shopping cart through the PX and remove pornographic literature for the time that our armor unit was on active duty. What the PX did after we left, I do not know. Young soldiers' hormones are raging without additional external stimulation. Not only should pornographic material be removed from military bases, but also the Provost Marshall should declare some off post establishments off limits. The Military Police should patrol these areas and enforce the off limits ban.

If anyone has trouble deciding what material is pornographic, I will gladly lend my professional expertise. The main problem is that pornography addicts and those who exploit people for profit, want to "muddy the water" in order to make money and gratify their evil desires. The "free speech" plea is a sham.

Ted Bundy, who sexually abused and murdered 24 young women and children, was addicted to pornography. Shortly before he was executed, Psychologist James Dobson interviewed him. In his interview he made a plea to halt pornography. Knowing that he would be dead within a few hours, his testimony was credible. Bundy was quite articulate:

I tell you that I am not blaming pornography. I am not saying it caused me to go out and do certain things. And I take full responsibility for whatever I have done. That's not the question here. The question and the issue is how this kind of literature contributed and helped mold and shape the kinds of violent behavior… .

Once you become addicted to pornography, and I look at this as a kind of addiction like other kinds of addiction, I would keep looking for more potent, more explicit, more graphic kinds of material… .

I have lived in prison for a long time now and I've met a lot of men who were motivated to violence just like me. And without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography, without question, without exception, deeply influenced and consumed by an addiction. The FBI's own study on serial homicide shows that the most common interest among serial killers is pornography… .

There are loose in the towns and in their communities, people like me, whose dangerous impulses are being fueled day in, day out, by violence in the media—particularly sexual violence… .and it's coming to the present now because what I am talking about happened 20, 30 years ago in my formative state. And what scares me, Dr. Dobson, is when I see some of the movies that come into homes today, the stuff that they wouldn't show in X-rated theaters 30 years ago. (Donald E. Wildmon, Ed., AFA Journal. Tupelo, MS: American Family Association, March 1989, p. 1).

In the truthful words of a dying man, Ted Bundy relates how pornography helped form him into a pedophile, rapist, and serial killer.

The scientific work of Dr. Victor Cline shows that Ted Bundy is not an exception, but an illustration of a common pattern of progression with many pornography users. His research revealed the following steps in degeneracy:

Addiction to hard core pornography, Escalation in the need for more shocking material, Desensitization toward initially shocking material and Increased Tendency to "act out" sexual activities seen in pornography. ("It's Obscene," pamphlet by Coalition Against Pornography. Kansas City; 318 East 55th Street, Kansas City, MO 64113).
"It's Obscene" also gives the following statistics:
1. Pornography is an 8 billion-dollar industry 85 percent controlled by organized crime.
2. There are more "adult" bookstores than McDonalds.
3. Over 250 of the 450 different pornographic magazines are child pornography. Most readers of pornography are between the ages of 12-17. Pedophiles break down the resistance of children by showing them the magazines.
4. Hard core pornography incites violent sexual assult and child molestation.

Organized crime hires slick lawyers who rationalize away the destructiveness of their product in the court room. Some who are hooked on pornography and pornography publishers join their notorious organized crime conspirators in attempting to defend this national pestilence. Their interest in the contest is obvious.

Pornography incites lust, which leads to promiscuous sex. Promiscuous sex produces pregancy, which leads to abortion. Promiscuous sex transmits STD, some of which are incurable. AIDS leads to a horrible death.

The Supreme Court has ruled that pornography is not protected by the first amendment. However, the attempt to define pornography by geographical relativism thwarts the decision.

The former First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, issued the following strong statement about pornography. First a pertinent question by Dotson Rader, then her answer:

In homes with cable TV, very young children can turn on channels showing R-rated and even X-rated films containing extremely graphic sex and violence—films that it is illegal for them to pay to see in a theater. How can you defend the culture of a country that allows a child access to hard-core pornography and extreme violence?

Blessings Edwin,

An excellent message, one that is so easy for us all to forget, that being to give thanks to the Lord for all things.

It is for this reason there were a number of prayers set down by the early Church as an aid so we might offer our appreciation and thanks for all things that our loving and merciful God has done for us, even when we do not recognize it.

The following is part of a prayer from the Church of Alexandria, it is not considered compulsory or a necessity but it does help us to remember the very thing you have pointed out here.

"O Lord, Master and Almighty God, the Father of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ, we thank You on every Occasion, in every condition and for all things. For You have protected, aided, kept, accepted us, had compassion upon us, supported us and brought us to this hour……."

Peace and love to you.

Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, “Was I getting in or out of the bath?”

The 94-year-old yells back, “I don’t know. I’ll come up and see.” She starts up the stairs and pauses. “Was I going up the stairs or down?”

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood.”

She then yells, “I’ll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who’s at the door.”

Interview in Heaven by theglorylandthegloryland, 30 Jul 2008 16:11

**I dreamed I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around.

We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.
My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section.' Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are Received.'

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.' Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked f or them.'

I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing.

'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' My angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.

'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.

'So sad,' the angel sighed 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .'

'How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.

'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank You, Lord.'

I asked,'What Blessings should they acknowledge?'

'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world. '

'If you have money in the bank,in your wallet, and spare change in a dish,you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'

Also….. 'If you woke up this morning with more health than illness… You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.'

'If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation.. You are ahead&n bsp; of 700 million people in the world.'

'If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death, You are envied by and more blessed than three billion people in the world.'

'If your parents are still alive and still married……You are very rare .'
'If you can hold your head up and smile, You are not the norm, You're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'

'Ok, now what?' 'How can I start?'

Blessings Gloryland,

What you have posted is quite correct, although I know you have no need of me to confirm this for you.

There is only one way to heaven and that is through faith in Jesus Christ, our God, Lord and Savior.

Most other major religions are merely breakaways from the Christian faith, pagan beliefs mixed with Christian doctrines or twisted versions of the Christian faith, none of which are of any use as there is only one truth as a little leaven, leavens the whole loaf.

Unfortunately, many reject Christ simply because of pride, they don't want to accept Him as Lord because they don't want to accept there is one who is greater than all of us so they seek out an alternative that best suits their carnal thinking. If they can't find one, deceiving spirits are happy to provide a religion for them or maybe they just invent one out of their own imaginations.

Then of course there is 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

Peace and love to you always

David Lazarus

What about other religions?
There are many religions in the world. They do not all teach the same thing. In fact, many of them contradict each other. So, they can't all be true and it cannot be said that each is a different path to God. What are we to say about all those other religions compared to Christianity? To get to the point, all other religions besides Christianity are false.

If Jesus is who He said He was, God in flesh, then whatever He says is authoritative and true. He said that He was the way the truth in the life and that nobody comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). Right there,we see that any other way, according to Jesus, is not true.

Christianity bases its truth and its doctrine on the word of God, the Bible. In the word of God, Jesus claims to be the only way. Since He performed many miracles, raised people from the dead, commanded a storm to be still and it obeyed, healed diseases, and rose from the dead Himself, then we are forced to face the reality of His words. Is what He said true or not? Either Jesus is a liar, a lunatic, or He is Lord. No one else in history, except Jesus, has fulfilled detailed prophecies, performed many miracles before eyewitnesses, and risen from the dead. Jesus is unique.

For those of us who are Christians, we have trusted what Christ has said. We believe in what He said and did. Like it or not, Jesus is the one who said He was the only way. It is not the Christians who are being "narrow-minded." It is Jesus. Therefore, to say that other religions can be true means that Jesus is false. To say that there are other ways to God, also means that Jesus is false. This is what it comes down to. Either Jesus is who He said He was and what He said is true, or He is false. This is a choice you must make. To trust what He said or reject His words.

Note: Religion can not Save you” Only your faith and who you trust. Not a church that anyone go to or a great preacher can Save you. For who so ever shall call upon the name of the LORD JESUS Shall be SAVED.

A Sunday school teacher began her lesson with a question. "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"

A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.

"Really?! How do you know?" asked the teacher.

"You know – Our Father, who does art in Heaven."

How often do you let other people change your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? The mark of a successful person is how quickly she/he can back her/his focus on what's important. Five years ago I learned this lesson in the back of a taxicab Indianapolis.

Here's what happened: I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And, I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? That guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.

As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move
on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so…Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't.

Keep Moving This Forward, Only Make Sure You Are Going In the right direction.
