In chapter 8, there is more talk of the thing being sacrificed to as being nothing.
19 What do I mean then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons.
I know of what I speak having been raised in a pentecostal faith.

OK, coming from a Texan..... I can't believe Perry just threw his hat into the race.....
The guy has been awful for Texas... Plus, need I remind you all what happened the last time we elected a governor from Texas, President?
Yeah,his pray the debt away idea..... silly....but this is the bible belt.... a lot of idiots eat that stuff up.
And no, those people do not think they are prophets.They are religious people with good intentions.....
But really.... No one vote for that clown....He has been bad for Texas and he will be bad for the country.
5 "When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6 "But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. 7 "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 "So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.9 "Pray, then, in this way: `Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 `Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. 11 `Give us this day our daily bread. 12 `And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 `And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.]' 14 "For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 "But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
I got the impression that the man was saying that the Emperor out and out claimed ot be sleeping with the Sun Goddess, not actually accusing him of actually doing so. Something to do with:

Katrina fell right on the weekend of the Decandence festival. Since it was during the hurricane season, it was bound to happen. Gustav fell the same weekend, a year or two later. Due to what Katrina did to scare that city, the Decadence festival was cancelled by the mayor, if I remember correctly. The gays were told to get out of town before all hell broke loose, incase Katrina was happening again. As I'm quite sure more will fall the same way. I don't necesscerily espouse that the storms happend because Gays wanted to embarrass the public with their drunken nudity (hey, the heteros do it during Mardi Gras, so it's a culture thing, not a sexual-preference related deviancy), but whoever put it in the comittee's head to put that festival in the heaviest part of the storm season had their head up their postierior.
Katrina and natural disasters occur because God is mad at sinful places??
Considering that most countries fall after too much moral decline happens, (or any crazy belif shift, for that matter...and we had one in the 60s) they're not all that crazy. Just start looking into how practices canged, and when their power was lost, for each society.
These people need a thorazine drip. Giving them any sort of governmental influence would be akin to throwing the evolutionary clock about 1000 years in reverse. I do not understand how a grown adult could possibly think this way. Do they not understand the physical world? Did no one teach them? Do they even care, or do they just need Jesus to come back so he can slay the Mooslims?edit on 11-8-2011 by spinalremain because: (no reason given)
