I guess every tragedy is another chance to sell Jesus. When you say take a moment to reflect on the pain, you really mean the pain of hell, don't you - not the pain of losing loved ones and homes, which was the decoy. I'm sure that you think that you're doing the right thing, but it seems a little opportunistic to me.

Consider this. She was talking about what you are doing:

“If you heard a marketer brag that he targets people who’ve been diagnosed with terminal illnesses because they’re easier targets, or a guy say he likes to cruise funerals because grieving women are easier to pick up, you’d think that person had no morals at all. But targeting people in moments of weakness to sell them religion is regarded as a normal and even virtuous strategy for proselytizing.”- Amanda Marcotte

"targeting people in moments of weakness to sell them religion"....

I suppose she's referring to something like a priest asking a dying person to accept Jesus.

What, if I may, would that priest be "selling".......?

The analogy is highly flawed. It's not like pharmaceuticals that MUST be purchased, not at all.

Our good morning again brother... I wonder just how seriously folk do understand re these signs true meaning? In these times they are more evident than ever.
There are many who remain in the safe haven… while many others work within the fields where that fear is heightened, in the face of disarming the thing, while they just stand back and watch! The trigger is in the hands of man... and lest there be no life left the days will be cut short,. that time is very close.
The children of the 3rd and 4th generations truly do inherit the fathers wrongs... this is so amplified in these times.
Hanging on is easy when we know who for... in between the work goes on... in even unsuspecting fields... the places they say 'where angels fear to tread'.
Yet even so... peace does abound, and blessings flow... there is not hand like His to lead the way!
How was your week end? We are now into Tues. 11am.
Good very early morning ( your time ) my sister, sad to say that most people are not cognizant of what is truly going on around them, specifically when it comes to the warnings of Bible Prophesy, because they either do not believe to begin with or they just don't take it seriously, there's a natural inclination to feel these things in the Bible are so far off that it doesn't directly have any baring on them in the least, but as the Word lets us know that there will be some who will be caught unaware.

Also the link I provided to another poster that contained scripture dealing with "cursed children" does hold true as you say, however it also lets us know how a person can bring themselves out from under that curse by submitting themselves unto God as it said that he will Bless those who love him.

God's peace my friend.

Hello CS according to the strongs Greek and Hebrew dictionary, the greek was ee-ay-sooce' and the Hebrew was Yeh-ho-shoo'-ah, which is the same as you pointed out Yashua. Some might not understand that being the same but I am sure you are. I found it interesting following where that word comes from. yeh-shah or yay-shah and the meaning of those words. Anyway :) that wasn't what caught my eye about your post. It was Melkizedeck. That name always catches my eye. Another that always bothered me was Shadrach Meshach and Abednego. I always thought their given Hebrew names should be used.
Hmmm...Hi BMNTB. How's it going?

Well you are correct about using the original names. When Nebuchadnezzar changed the Hebrew boys names from Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah and from Daniel to Belshazzar in honor of their god Bel, these Hebrew's never kept these names.

IESVS in Greek misses the mark because in the first instance it broke a key principle. The YAH in Yahshuah (some say Yashua or Galilean Yeshua) is taken directly from his Father's name, YAH in Yahweh. So when Jesus came about, there was no relation to Yahweh so Yahweh was translated erroneously to Jehova,'JE' being the connection.

YHWH and YHSWH ('s' representing the Hebrew letter shin).

The Romans had a habit of taking on the deities of other nations they have conquered or absorbed. though persia by far had the largest pantheon of gods of any nation in history, the Romans quickly followed them. You can see how they borrowed or claimed the Greek gods for themselves and were also known to worship some Egyptian, Phoenician and Babylonian deities. Their behavior has caused even Christianity, which was warped by Constantine, who while accepted Christianity for himself on his death bed may never have been truly converted. It is sad how many falsities many of us worship these days and prefer to keep it that way. Sad but true.

Shalom.

Andrew (CS).

no I am not a liar, you are simply a brain dead moron who do not have the ability of God to rightly divide, discern or understand scripture on any feasible level, I never said that the actual term homosexuality ( as in that word itself ) is mentioned in the any part of the Bible OT or new, but it IS widely highlighted in the 1st chapter of Romans which leaves no doubt whatsoever about what is being discussed......homosexuality AND lesbianism, I have posted those scriptures more than twice and will do so again if you need me to.

Everything that you say to demean others are a direct projection of your own inabilities, you have proven it so time and time again, your spiritual state of being should be used to highlight as a stern warning to others as someone who God has turned over to a reprobate mind, pitifully believing their own Godless spewing.

That isn't an example of selling. Your analogy is flawed, since it isn't of an activity that produces a profit directly.
RiversideRedneck wrote:

Yeah, I thought so, too. But it's your analogy - not mine, nor that of the quote's author.

It's more like when I was at a funeral two years ago at an Anglican church, and the bastard in the dress asked us where we thought the deceased, an openly gay man, was presently, and where each of us thought we would be had it been us.

That may seem cool from a believer's perspective, but unless the thought of hell suddenly causes you to quiver, you're probably going to resent such self-serving opportunism. He was trolling for tithes.

Hi lawest,
I see you are speaking the truth of GOds GRACE..Yes we are redeemed..Thank you Jesus..I have been trying to tell people this for almost a year now but for those who still don't get it, here is the definition of REDEEMED..
redeem.. make something acceptable: to make something acceptable or pleasant in spite of its negative qualities or aspects
restore reputation: to do something that changes a negative opinion to a positive one
atone for human sin: to pay for the sins of humanity with death on the Cross
With that being said, I hope everyone knows that once they accept Jesus Christ, God no longer see's their sins. We are hidden in Christ. We are MADE ACCEPTABLE Because of Jesus. That is HOW NO Sin will enter heaven...Because there isn't any sin because when do sin the bible tells us in John 1:16.. And of his fullness have all we received, and Grace for Grace. His Grace is sufficient and continues washing us and covering us. But the BEST part is this 1 John 4:17..As HE ( Jesus) IS , so are WE in this world."
1 John 4:17
Pretty Awesome huh? That's the GRACE message. Just wanted to share this with you. Meditate on this Please..
G/A Grace. very true message. Peace.

It is such a imaginary cliche anyway

I mean first of all, what is the scenario where someone is going around targeting people on their deathbeds? Would a priest come if called, I am sure. But targeting?

Second of all, like you said, what are they "selling"

The idea that they love a stranger they don't even know and are concerned about their soul and would do anything they could to help bring them to Christ before they died if the person so allowed them?

That is what is considered targeting?

These are the stories people tell themselves in certain circles. For all their claims of oppression, very few people are affected by religion that don't want to be in the day-to-day aspect of their lives. But the oppressions stories have to continue somehow so they come up with stuff like this. What do they tell each other, that roaming packs of priests kick down hospital doors and yell "repent sinner"

It takes a wild imagination to it into a bad thing that someone would give of themselves and their time with nothing in it for them to come rushing over to a total stranger who has some doubts about their unbelief now that they are approaching death's door.

Amen Lawest..Mobile 7 is me by the way. I was just trying to help you here. Although, G was right on a few things also. Don't you think that God see's ALL sin the same? If we actually dig deep enough in the Word, we can see that the ( Noun) SIN is actually talking about dis-belief..Lying, cheating, stealing and homosexual behavior is all an ACTION ( verb) of SIN. It isn't those actions of sin that will send anybody to hell but the NOUN version of SIN that will. " Disbelieve" I was amazed when I learned that. So many people want to mention 1 Cor.6 but if we keep it in context look what the very next verse says...Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. THE NEXT VERSE SAY"S
And that is what some of you "WERE". But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Justified AND sanctified..Those 2 words are rarelt preached anymore but if you would look up the meaning of those 2 words, You will see the rest of the GRACE message..Just wanted to share some Good news with you..Hope you don't mind
No GW I don't mind, and I thank you for the assist, and would like to add as I've said in a post yesterday, that it is not just homosexual sin only but ALL sin pertaining to the sexual like fornication and adultery, I have no desire to which any homosexual or lesbian people harm in any way, I cannot support their actions in any manner and find it offensive when people compare their plight to Black people and the civil rights movement, but I don't hate them as I've been accused and I actually remind people from time to time who are heterosexual that living in fornication is just as condemnable, I've known men of whom some are friends of mine, who were very proud of the fact they they have fathered several children by several different women and married to none of them, same goes for adultery as well, but as the Word says, they glory in their shame.

Peace.
