Amen Pilgrim and thank you brother QC for you spiritual prayer.
I actually watched a video of a Muslim beheading a Russian soldier. Anyway, just noting what I saw is painful to me. I would suggest that no one do what I did regardless of any curiousity. It isnât of course the most painful way to die, but it is the most graphic and they know it.
I would also not use the word extremists, but would simply say practicing Muslims. Someone who studies and believes in the Koran either do these things or support those who do.
Dr. Tim wrote: Frank, I am going to go a step further on your âif evolution is trueâ statement. If evolution is true, there is no basis or even any reason for any form of morality. Itâs a dog-eat-dog world, and the toughest and wiliest dogs will, and should, always win. Thereâs not a thing wrong with every man doing what is right in his own eyes, simply because there is no concrete standard for determining what is right and what is wrong. The only âgoodâ is survival of the fittest. And why must they survive? Who knows? For that matter, who knows the why of anything if there is no God? Just live your 75 years however you see fit, and as you are going through the door of death holler, âWhoâs next?â
I agree with everything you wrote and thanks for your additional thoughts. I have always said that if satan can convince mankind that evolution is true, then he can literally convince them of anything; and I mean anything. That whole concept is indeed that silly and illogical.
Catholic dogma says: you can teach evolution if you want, but don't leave God out of it. I say this because I believe that theistic evolution is also a "total" work of satan.
Satanâs goal is not to be tolerated, but accepted by mankind. So a homosexual not only wants society at large to accept them, but also the churches of our Lord to accept them. They have already won the societal battle, but they will never win the battle with true Christians.
It is virtually impossible for a Christian to live a morally peaceful uncompromising life in this god forsaken world. But, my brothers and sisters, that should be our goal.
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Very true brother!
And all of us realize that this form of euthanasia doesnât apply to the policy makers. Their ring leader, Biden, is 78. In a socialist society, the rich and famous are given passes; it is only the people that have put them in power that will suffer along with the rest of us.
In their opinion, since old sick people are useless eaters and simply are consuming resources, they donât matter and are simply harmful to society.
If evolution is true, then their goals are also true. But we know that evolution is satan's tool for doing these things.
John Lee wrote: Amen brother! That is the very text I was thinking of. Britain may not be communist yet, but it certainly seems to be headed that way. And believers in communist countries often mention the need for great carefulness in speech and writing, in the books they have written.
Yes brother, I remember in communist Romania that the local authorities had to approve sermons; it was illegal to witness outside a church setting; and it was illegal to sell or print Christian books.
What we are seeing is the beginning of the end brother.
The Quiet Christian wrote: Our Brother Watcher's theories notwithstanding (and they have some merit), I agree with our Brother Frank. Yes, the Lord establishes kings and knocks them down at His pleasure in accordance with His will, which we are further instructed is for our good. But He did not tell Samuel to annoint a President but instead is working thru our broken & tainted political system. It is up to us to work, and He through that work, brings the result. These lawsuits and investigations are a part of that process and work. When the Lord reveals whom will be the next President, it will be thru this process.
Well said brother and we totally agree. It will be interesting to see how this stuff works out. We do our duty and God determines the final results.
Thanks for all of your comments. And my comment is not meant to be disagreeable.
I agree that God will ultimately determine who are next president is going to be. I am told to be in subjection to His choice, but I donât have to like it, assist Him or agree with it. Just think of the Christians in NK or China. The same God determines those leaders as well. But none of us or the Christians there agree with His choice. To me it would be the same as volitionally helping the antichrist come to power. It will happen, but we will all fight against him.
But, the crime of voter fraud is something that we must ponder and fight against. It seems naĂŻve to me to not see what took place. We should fight against all injustice and not simply stand by and say; Thy will be done. It is a crime and no one is supposedly above the law. Yeah right.
If somehow Trump wins this election there would be such carnage in this country that Trump would be forced to declare martial law and IMO, that wouldnât even resolve it. It would finish destroying this country.
I remember once years ago watching this fellow on TV whose purpose was to show there was no God and only weak people thought differently. He looked into the camera and said something like: there is no God and if there is a God, then I want Him to strike me dead. He then got a defiant look and smiled.
IMO, that is the same thing these lawmakers are doing in this article and others like it. They are thumbing their noses at God and basically saying they are their own Gods. I cannot remotely fathom just how ridiculous they look before my omnipotent God.
Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
1 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Your comment was absolutely perfect and it echos my thoughts exactly.
All faiths have what I call a cultural following. By that I mean that someone is simply born into a faith and they never made a decision to acknowledge that faith and they donât understand what it teaches. A peaceful Muslim generally fits that description. They are born into an Islamic family and they just acknowledge that. Just look at all the cultural Christians in this country. They claim the name of Christ but have never been born again from above.
Anyway, my guess is the vast majority of those who study the Quran support terrorism. That would mean 100s of millions throughout the world.
I know their apologists spin their scriptures to show otherwise, but just look at the world around us.
If they die in Jihad, then they are guaranteed heaven and their 72 virgins.
Well America is one of the last western nations to have a female leading. All of us realize that was the democratic goal from the beginning. Last night I heard a Fox news commentator say: and now we can hear what the Biden/Harrisâ agenda will be. A Vice President isnât supposed to have an agenda at all. They know Biden is simply a puppet.
I am one that is intrigued by subtle changes and this one caught my attention. Most major changes require small seemingly unimportant changes that people simply donât notice.

When one of my daughters was in 9th grade we got a notification they were going to have a sex education class. Since I believe that is solely a parental responsibility, I went down and argued with the principle and assistant principle giving as much scripture as I could. They both disagreed with me, but said they would allow my daughter to not attend and she could do some other type of study. I had told them that I would keep her out of school that day if they didnât allow this. They explained they were going to show the private parts for men and women and actually give a demonstration on a dummy as to how to put on condoms among other things.
That would have been in the early 80s. I can assure everyone that today I would have been denied my request and would have been reported to some authority.
Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly.
SA and moderator. I apologize for my rash and unkind comment below.
The closer we get to the return of Christ, the more the below will become a reality. All of us have a hard time understanding how our loved ones can report us to the antichristâs minions, but it will happen. And, it will happen throughout the world. All those not in Christ will worship the antichrist and all those in Christ will not.
Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
Revelation 13:15 âAnd he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.â

Good advice brother,
I have taken great pains preparing for when the Lord calls me home. I will enter into eternal bliss, but those we leave behind will have to adjust in many ways. I love the comforts the Lord gives us in 1 Corinthians 15 below:
1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
