Why would jesus stop with just New York & San Francisco ? Why just american cities? Could it possibly be that in the bible there were two (2) cities
destroyed ? And if in the bible it would been more than two cities. Then this prediction would probally mirror that number.
And why just the two mentioned ? Maybe because it's the ones the christian right most equate with the biblical cities mentioned. I'm sure jesus
could find some more cities to smite . Hong Kong, Amsterdame, Tokyo, LA, come to mind.
What about Rome? That is where the folks came from that killed him. What about Kernersville N.C. I have allways really hated that little town.
Look I do not mean to be rude but Jesus was about repentance and forgiveness. In fact, Jesus forgave those whose societal sins were deemed the most
abhorrent. What makes you think being homosexual is more of a sin than a murderer, prostitute or liar? It is my understanding that Jesus is the
forgiver and the saviour. As far as I know he does not mete out God's wrath or his Justice. God is capable of doing that on his own. So my guess is
that this "message" did not come from Jesus and was designed to keep people Jesus bashing so they take there eyes of what is really important.
Ps, I am sure if Jesus wants to send a message to his faithful, he would speak to their hearts directly, not use the internet.
The man who, in pursuit of corporeal satisfactions, seeks an enhancement of those satisfactions in any kind of excess, places himself below the level
of the brute, for the brute goes no farther than the satisfaction of a need. He abdicates the reason given to him by God for his guidance: and the
greater his excesses, the more dominion does he give to his animal nature over his spiritual nature. The maladies and infirmities, often occasioning
death, that are the consequences of excess in the satisfaction of any corporeal attraction, are also punishments for thus transgressing the law of
Do you think its a coincidence that a lot of catholic nuts get possessed by demons?
I am convinced that evil exists in the form of bad karma!
What is the relevance of being Catholic here? Are you just making up stuff to suit your particular world view?
Maybe you should read the post I was replying to and you will find out. It was NOT off-topic!
I didn't say it was off topic. I just wanted to know how you narrowed down demon possession to the Catholics? I would think Pentecostal would be just
as prone with all that handling of serpents and speaking in tongues and what not.

....... of rubbish that the OP did, and then turned out to secretly like "that sort of thing."
Those that shout the loudest, eh?
Those guys have nothing to do with god and they do not speak for anyone but themselves. They are there to deter you from the real gospel. It worked,
I dont like them either with their get on your knees, kiss my ring, call me father, give me your money now here are some beads, rock back and forth
and chant.... Thats bs religion.\
Right. I have nothing against faith. Personal faith is a wonderful thing. Hateful vitriol - like the OP - is what the public sees. Unfortunately -
like it or loathe it - these wingnuts are the public face of the 'moral majority.'
That they systematically abuse not only their positions, but the public face of your faith (as a whole), is a matter of public scrutiny. Had the OP
muttered to himself that he hates homosexuals, nobody would have given him the time of day. Instead, he stated, quite categorically, that Jesus
himself hates gay people, and especially those who live in those particular cities. He stated it as fact, and was duly reminded of his folly.
That goes for the rest of that list too. They spouted hatred for homosexuality publicly, but secretly enjoyed that lifestyle.
Faith is a wonderful thing. Religions not so much. If you take comfort in your faith, and find the words of whichever Holy book you prefer to be
sacred, then I wish you nothing but good. If you choose to follow the words of men who have proven themselves to be corrupt for millenniae, then I
personally think you are doing yourself a disservice.
Dude, if spouting your beliefs gets you through your day, then power to you, but I just can't wrap my head around why you and others like you think
the path to where ever it is you think you're going is paved by passing judgement on others who don't think or believe like you?
The thing that is missing from all interpretations of scripture is reason. We have right and wrong spelled out but the reasoning behind why some
things are against God (and apparently against reason) isn't evident. That evidence manifests itself once you give yourself over to God in Faith.
It is a small gesture to show a bl;ind Faith and yet why do so many refuse it like it means having a root canal?
I said a silent Prayer once that got answered immediately and left me knowing truth. I was alone aside from my stepson who had shot himself. He was
gone, nothing I could ever say or do could change that and yet I was at a point of vent or explode when his ex showed up with the will after throwing
him to the curb in spirit by making private text messages to someone else at 4AM.
His eldest daughter didn't help either when she said "don''t come back, EVER"
Long story shirt I said a silent Prayer, first acknowledging to God I didnt know what to Pray for I then saw I was starting to lose my composure so I
"thought" simply, "I Pray for calm"
Out of all the people I talked to on various forums, in rl at church or on the street I had met only one other person who had this Prayer answered and
she was on her way to the hospital where her husband was being taken due to a bad wreck.
It was answered and left me knowing it was supernatural. It started at the top of my head and felt like a pressure when you dive deep. Disconcerting
at first I thought I was having a stroke. As it "slowly and uniformly" made its way down, and so slow I knew it was controlled, I was then amazed
and by the time it was at my knees, I was filled with all the love, forgiveness, understanding, and most importantly was a clarity of thought. .I knew
what I had to do but I was also filled with a serenity I never knew before. I felt like I was touched by the hand of God, like I was connected to the
universal love that God is and also was left with a kind of intuition or discernment of what spirituality actually means. I started picking up the
Bible again and am always understanding more and more the reason behind God and His will in all things.
I started at the book of Genesis and in the Garden of Eden I saw the forbidden fruit differently. It is the fruit of the tree of knowledge but that
knowledge wasn't earthly. That bite was sexual in nature and the entire Bible is against fornication so the issue is one of reason and there is a
reason behind everything God does or has done.
So Adam and Eve were ashamed and hid themselves with fig leaves because they knew they were naked. Only after an orgasm would that shame have
manifested so why is God against the human orgasm?
The reason behind that I won't divulge other than to say that the human orgasm is more than a physical release and anyone who has had an orgasm knows
the intensity of the feeling is beyond physical release it occurs within the brain as well...
Now the Catholic church used to require celibacy up until a point... Vatican 2? I dunno as I am not Catholic and call no man father but Lord God..
The entire Catholic Faith has been stolen by evil and it became evident during the October 1958 Enclave where white smoke appeared then a half hour
later black smoke appeared. which contradicted the original message of a new Pope being chosen.
To this day the Catholics are drifting further away from Faith by a systematic dismantling of belief on all fronts, financial, moral, ethical, and
criminal? Isn't my call either and God has us all sorted out by our fruits and labors.
The only real question is reasoning for you, and ability to convey meaning to me.
How does one teach another who is blind from birth the color red?
The same way God teaches, by example and the Bible and human history is all example.
The color red is to vision what spice and seasonings are to taste
yet the devils game is to bring disbelief to an unknowing (and uncaring) world
As simple as opening your heart and being humble before the Lord and it is asking too much of many of you. You can't see past yourselves and have
nothing of value on your periphery ...
sorry hardly conveys the waste I see that you refuse to feel
A simple Prayer for calm was all I needed to KNOW and yet the world would rather believe that Jesus is the sun and God is not God.
I defy any of you to Pray on the sun and heal an infant that was born not knowing how to eat.
... just one of many Prayers/miracles I have witnessed.
bottom line I don't feel dialogue with many of you is worth my time which is more precious than anything you could say/do because it is time I spend
being me, no conversions, simply me enhanced on the Lord's spirit... and understanding .
Ignore God if you will, that is your loss and I said as much as I can to get you to see without the blinders of disbelief.
You don't believe me, seek God yourself and KNOW Him as one of Faith does, not one of confusion who is impotent in Prayer
I think that would be to modern a word to be found there in. But there are many references to homosexuality.
Sodomy, sodomites everything you can imagine is pretty much referenced tho. Just worded in the obscure ways
they used back then is all.
This is a message from THE BAY AREA to the condescending Haters plus their fans of fans (OP) around the world who lack soul and act like parrots
passing judgement upon people they've never met inspired by people they see you beneath them the same way you put others down below you
Don't Judge [[THATS NOT YOUR JOB ┌∩┐(￣ー￣)┌∩┐]]
The real reason the government doesn't want gay people to marry is same reason why they don't want polygamy
One word TAXES
If gay couples can marry then they can claim as one household where different rules and tax breaks apply
That's a lose of income for the government
Especially since people who are not gay just might get married to save money I mean why not social stigma and taboo aside if you can save thousands of
dollars by marrying your friend why wouldn't you its not like you have sleep with them both of you could go to Cancun or Amsterdam for your honeymoon
and with the money you save and get laid by all the hookers you want
imagine if both polygamy and gay marriage where legal you could marry ten of your friends and the love of your life and the Government would be even
more broker then they already are
People who whine about the children or the sanctity of marriage are just fans of fans and repeat like groupy parrots the copout answers fed to them by
people who have something to lose if it is made legal
like losing the ability to misappropriate spending to fund to BS projects for people who fund their campaign due to a decrease of taxes income Causing
a recession for members of Congress
Think about this fans of fans
The Christian Jesus Christ is most likely based on Julius Caesar, both began their careers in northern countries: Caesar in Gaul, Jesus in Galilee;
both cross a fatal river: the Rubicon and the Jordan; both then enter cities: Corfinium and Cafarnaum; The similarities remain consistent
Caesar > Jesus
Pompey > John (the Baptist)
Antonius > Simon
Lepidus > Peter
(Decimus) Junius (Brutus) > Judas
(Marcus Junius) Brutus > Barabbas
Octavianus (Augustus) > John (the disciple)
Nicomedes of Bithynia > Nicodemus of Bethania
Cleopatra > (Mary) Magdalene
People and places have the same function in both stories:
Pompey is the political godfather of Caesar and competes with him in the same way John the Baptist does with Jesus.
Antony and Lepidus became Caesar’s successors, the first as flamen, high priest of the Divus Julius cult, the second as pontifex maximus, just as
Simon and Peter do with Jesus (they both melt into one figure – Simon Peter).
Decimus Junius Brutus betrays Caesar as Judas betrays Jesus.
The other Brutus is Caesar’s murderer and Barabbas is a murderer.
Octavian is the young Caesar, his posthumously adopted son. John is adopted by Jesus as he is dying on the cross.
Nicomedes of Bithynia was said to have had nightly meetings with Caesar as did Nicodemus of Bethany with Jesus.
Cleopatra had a special relationship with Caesar as did Mary Magdalene with Jesus.
Julia, Caesar’s aunt and widow of Marius plays the same role as Mary, the mother of Jesus.
The Senate is Caesar’s enemy, just as the Council is Jesus’ Satan.
Caesar comes from Gaul, in the north, at the beginning of the Civil War, while Jesus also comes from the north, Galilee, at the beginning of his
Corfinium is the first city Caesar occupies and Cafarnaum is the first city Jesus enters.
Rome is the capital, where Caesar first triumphs and later is assassinated. Jerusalem is the city where Jesus is celebrated on Palm Sunday and later
put to death.
Names resemble each other in writing and phonetically – Gallia and Galilaia, Corfinium and Cafarnaum, (Julia) Mària and Marìa, Nicomedes of
Bithynia and Nicodemus of Bethania, etc. Other examples are not as obvious but can still be recognized: Junius (Brutus) and Judas, Brutus and
Barabbas, Senatus and Satanas, etc., or even ROMA and HieROsolyMA, Antonius and Simona (mirror images, from right to left, as if it were written in
Most quotes are word for word, sometimes with insignificant differences:
«He who does not take sides is on my side» reoccurs as «For he that is not against us is for us.».
«I am not King, I am Caesar» appears as «We have no king but Caesar».
«The best death is sudden death» appears as «What you are going to do (lead me to death), do quickly».
«Did I save them, that they might destroy me?» is «He saved others; he cannot save himself.»
Only in two cases are there slight, yet meaningful distortions:
«Alea iacta est(o)», «The die is cast», became «… casting (a net into the sea): for they were fishers» (confusion of lat. alea, die, and gr.
(h)aleeis, fishers) – the miraculous netting of fish).
«Veni vidi vici», «I came, I saw, I conquered”, changed to «I came, I washed and I saw.» (confusion of enikisa, I won, and enipsa, I washed)
It's because of people like you that so many idiots exist these days, it's the reason humanity can't make any progress. The very reason humanity is
devolving, simply because people such as yourself get peoples minds stuck on stupid mundane religious dogma. Do you honestly believe you speak for a
god? What virtue would declare you worthy, sounds more like a feces throwing neanderthal than a self proclamed saint or prophet.
I can not believe the moderators of this sight allow this filth to be on here. This is supposed to be intelligent conversation. Not contemplating how
jesus is going to punish the less significant. People wonder why religion is such a bane on the earth. This is why. Get a life a learn something so
you don't have to overcompensate by being a primitive individual practicing primitive superstitions.
I can't speak to the face of death part, but there have been a few times when I was in my teens and 20's that when I was "driving the porcelain
bus", I had some meaningful conversations with God. OK, actually, I was doing a lot of pleading........
