When so-called Christians oppose the Nashville Statement.(note and link)

My note: As soon as the “Nashville Statement” started shining as a light for the world to see, the compromisers, lukewarm, and cultural conformists and appeasers made their own lukewarm stew to contradict and attack the “Nashville Statement”.
Not surprising, really.
As soon as God moves the hearts of His people to spread truth powerfully and clearly, Satan puts useful idiots to work opposing and attacking the teachings of the Bible and especially truth and clarity.
Satan wants people (especially Christians) to be stupid, blind, confused, especially on important issues of the day and where God speaks clearly.
“Spirit of the age, thy name is confusion.”

My additional comment:
There’s no such thing as pro-LGBT Christians, they’re just lukewarm compromisers, cultural conformists and appeasers, people-pleasers who love to support sins and pretend they’re still serving God. Sad, deceived, politically correct, confused people. What they’re doing isn’t showing love.
By their own words they show that they’re going against the Bible and God, they contradict God and His Word and they make up stupid ideas about Him, slandering His holiness and make Him look like a hypocrite.
They think they’re presenting God’s view or side of it? They’re really not, their words are lies, they’ve been listening to the devil and the world too long.

“Looking to help Hurricane Harvey victims? Beware of scams”

My comment: It’s plain despicable that there are sickos out there scamming people out of money, people who aren’t affected by the hurricane but want to help/aid those who are affected. Such scammers are evil and are proof that people aren’t basically good inside.
You can try to help those hurricane victims but beware sickos’ scams preying on unsuspecting people especially during such times of disasters.

“Matt Walsh: Kids are only ‘transgender’ because the adults in their lives make them that way”

My note: When indoctrinators traumatize children… it’s abuse, not education.

“Matt Walsh: Kids are only ‘transgender’ because the adults in their lives make them that way”
by Matt Walsh.

Excerpt:
“Children are susceptible and easily influenced. That’s a normal feature of childhood. And it’s not a problem, as long as the adults in charge of them aren’t wicked or deranged. But we have many of those kinds of adults in our culture, and so we have many children who bear the scars. That’s all that “transgenderism” is for most children: the scar that forms after years of psychological and spiritual abuse.”

College unveils latest microaggression…”by Dave Urbanski. (+ my note)

College unveils latest microaggression: Public monuments depicting ‘white cisgender men and women’
by Dave Urbanski.

My note: Nothing says “faux-college full of spineless idiots” like making up more so-called ‘microaggressions’.
It’s almost as if using ‘cisgendered’ is now considered an insult to use against those who are sane and not prone to poisonous confusion.
It’s like political correctness on drugs, like really bad drugs that mess up the brain permanently.
‘Ridiculous’ is almost an understatement.

“Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Beliefs” by Matt Slick. (and my note)

“Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Beliefs” by Matt Slick.

My note: The pseudo-Christian cult of Jehovah’s Witnesses believes and teaches things that obviously contradict the Bible, things that one could believe only if they butcher Scripture and reinterpret texts to appear to support the cult’s teaching.
Just looking at the short list of 30 things JWs believe it’s obvious you can’t call their beliefs as those conforming to orthodox Christianity.
You’d have to be intentionally dishonest to claim that JWs believe basically the same thing Protestant Christians do, because they really don’t.
Don’t let them fool you into believing their main teachings for they contradict the Bible and the fundamental Christian doctrines.

Notes on Books I’ve Read (“Broken Bread: An Ancient Look at the First Last Supper” by Jay Richard McCarl.)

Notes on Books I’ve Read (“Broken Bread: An Ancient Look at the First Last Supper” by Jay Richard McCarl.)

Just by the book’s title you can pretty much tell what it’s going to be all about but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much more there is included than just the the idea given to you by the title; it will exceed your expectation – well, it exceeded mine, at least, and I hope it exceeds your expectations also of what you hope to find out by reading it. This is a great book that’s not too long and I hope you will, as I did, find it to not be dry reading but a great book full of new insights, information, an overall enlightening experience.

As you can guess, the book’s about the First Last Supper, an event which took place on Passover but it would be the last Passover and the first Last Supper. Might sound strange or confusing if you know little about the Passover or the history of the celebration of this great holy day but just by reading this easy-to-read book I’m sure you’ll learn plenty about both the Passover and the Last Supper, and why there’s a difference or the ceasing of one and beginning of the other.
The author does his research for this book, for the subject, the topic of his writing; he knows what he’s talking about in the book, and it’s not just a commentary on the great event, it’s much more. There’s plenty of things you can learn just by attentively reading this book.

I’ve learned a lot of new things just by reading this book; new information, great glimpses and insights into the customs and traditions of the time when the last Supper took place. I learned how the feast was prepared; how people greeted each other; who sat where and why; how people ate meals and with whom; what kind of food was eaten during the Passover; the many to-us-strange-seeming things people did back then; various nuances, dos and don’ts of table etiquette. It basically gave me a bigger picture of the whole event (Passover and the Last Supper); a greater look and insights into the lives of the people of that time. It helped me understand and see things differently than I’ve seen them before, it provided a sort of perceptional adjustment of things which I was ignorant of or just some of the erroneous notions and misguided ideas I’ve held for years about the Passover, life at that time, and some other things.

It was a great book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the Passover, the Last Supper, the customs and traditions of that time which people took seriously. If you’re just curious about the things, I recommend it also.
If you’ve read it and if you will read it, maybe you can share here your opinion of it, how it benefited you, what you’ve learned by reading it.

Some Books by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Some Books by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Recently I’ve purchased 4 books (technically 5) which have to do with J. R. R. Tolkien and his works and by now I’ve received all of them (they arrived).
What are they?

On Friday I received:
– “Smith of Wootton Major & Farmer Giles of Ham” by J.R.R. Tolkien.smith04

On Monday I received:
– “Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-Earth” by J. R. R. Tolkien.9780544337992_p0_v2_s192x300
“The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien” by Humphrey Carpenter (Editor), J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (With).917mNEAi-TL

On Tuesday I received:
– “The Atlas of Middle-Earth (Revised Edition)” by Karen Wynn Fonstad.51OtLVeyEmL

Why did I get these specific books by Tolkien?
First, simply to have more works by J. R. R. Tolkien to read which I’ve not read yet.
Second, to learn about the author and the Middle-earth he created.
Third, to read a book or two by him which aren’t directly related to Middle-earth (LOTR, Hobbit, etc.).
This is why my choices may appear a little random with only the author being the main connection but the choices weren’t random.
I make my choices to buy books with thinking involved; I never buy any book for no reason, I don’t see a point or logic in buying a book for no reason.
Also, I bought them for the reason that I didn’t have these books before and I haven’t read any of them before so they are new books to me, with content which I have not perused/read before.
Although I bought them all used, they are all in great condition except for one that has a minor rip on the cover but everything else is good. I saved money buying them used/like new/used a few times. You can get good deals if you look for them.
I’m sure they’ll be great additions to the books I already have which were written by Tolkien.

How many of these books do you have? Or how many of those 4 (5) have you read?
Which one(s) did you like most?
