    Help Is On The Way!

    For those of you who are believers out there, help is on the way. Let's see what happens; sometimes prayers are answered.

    He is a false preacher. If he ever opened the Bible he would know GOD either sends plagues or allows them.

    I was shocked the other day, turned on the TV and on that station a pastor was asking his flock, Who is Jesus to you. I was in the kitchen and was going to change it. Can't stand TV preachers. He started off in Genesis and said "let us". I didn't change it, the man actually preached the Bible.He actually said Jesus was in the beginning, He was God in the flesh, and went over many scriptures to confirm. I don't know when this one was actually broadcast because he had a big audiance but it was nice to see someone preach HIS truth on TV.

    We are gathered here today to bury this person because your thoughts & prayers did not do a dambed thing except make you feel like you did something constructive.

    If they were genuine and sincere, they would have worked as genuine and sincere prayers are very powerful.

    ...but because you only did it to make yourself feel better or did it on national TV, we are putting this poor person in the ground now.

    ************************************************** ************


    A STORY ABOUT FAITH:

    A preacher in the old west asked all the townsfolk to come to pray for a relief of the bad drought they were suffering from.
    They all show up, and the preacher is delayed just a bit, then comes up to the pulpit.

    You all can go home now. It does no good for you to be here.

    " ...but preacher, we all came to pray for this drought to be let up...where is your faith..."

    The preacher says..." Where is yours " !!!

    I just checked all of your wagons and not once did I find any rain slicks or umbrellas in any of them !!!!!
    NONE ARE HELPLESS...There are only those WEAK ENOUGH to believe they are...and those STRONG ENOUGH to revel in the knowledge they are not.

    It isn't nice to mock other people's beliefs. Not my cup of tea; but, not nice to mock other people's beliefs. I represented a world-famous televangelist once. Me, the good Italian Catholic boy that I am. One day, I sarcastically asked him: "Why do you claim you can heal people" - He replied, "I never claim I can heal people, but I claim that I can pray so hard and loud that maybe, just maybe, God might bestow his blessings on them"

    I apologize if you thought i was mocking other people's beliefs.
    I was not.
    I was mocking those of superficial faith that say stuff merely to make themselves feel good or to look good in front of the camera, and do not mean one word of what they are saying.
    Church bar talk, if you will.

    The second paragraph of my posts clearly says this.

    GENUINE FAITH is powerful and can move mountains....I also said that in my second sentence.

    FAKE and DISINGENUOUS FAITH does nothing.

    This is exactly what I said in my post and exactly what I meant.

    If someone's faith is fake, then it deserves to be mocked and insulted.
    The Lord Jesus said this very thing about lukewarm Christians. They will be spit from the mouth of God.
    As they should be.


    They hold their faith on high for all to see, and as long as it does not inconvenience them too much.
    Actually visit a friend of theirs in jail ???...that's just crazy talk.
    Visit a friend of theirs in the hospital...???...no way Jose'

    It is much more convenient for them to sit on their ass in church and say, " Let's pray for them", rather than do anything that will inconvenience them all that much.


    ...except the Lord God can see right through that fake mask they are wearing.
    ...and so can a lot of other people.

    Your knowledge of scripture is minimal. God doesn't send anything to kill anyone. Jesus stopped that with his death. God will punish at the end, not while you are still here.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    lol. I don't think I'd be willing to leave the safety and comfort of my home to see them perform. I'm still waiting for the pandemic is "disappear".

    I disagree. Mocking or critizicing beliefs of other people in the day's order. It is free speech. And it is something known as parody. I guess that you have never mocked or critiziced communist ideas or similar? Because it is the same.

    And also, believing that praying will cure you is ridiculous. What will cure you are the medical treatments. Nothing else. But, hey, only saying that. If you believe that praying will be protected, OK, go with it. Maybe placebo effect work on you.
