FLEECING THE SHEEP

The charismatic movement claims to have the Holy Spirit in a special way, however, some seem to be lacking in all discernment that the Holy Spirit would give. There are several books exposing the big name Charismatic ministers. One is written by an ex-charismatic Assembly of God minister. He shows a picture in his book of an Assembly of God flier promoting the "Testimony of J. Edgar Hoover."

Yes, the Assembly of God promoted the, "testimony" of J. Edgar Hoover, while he was known to be a power hungry individual who practiced homosexuality. It was this type of hype that caused this minister to grow disillusioned with the charismatic movement's so called spirituality. Recently, the spiritual discernment of Billy Graham and many other big time ministries was exposed when these big Christian ministries were conned out of $550 million dollars. Billy Graham introduced John G. Bennett to thousands of people at a recent Billy Graham Crusade in Philadelphia in 1992. John Bennett gave his testimony at the crusade. Because Billy Graham, John Templeton, and Laurance Rockefeller were apparently supportive of John G. Bennett, big time Christian ministries "trusted" him. John told many of the big Christian ministries that if they gave him millions of dollars, for every million he received he would give them two million back. Many of the big Christian ministries gave Bennett money--in fact he collected $550 million (which he ran off with) from ministries such as Pat Robertson's, Bill Bright's, Chuck Colson's, Luis Palau's, Westminster Theological Seminary, Wheaton College, the Salvation Army and many others. The reader may have heard of this New Era Foundation scam. That's what it was

But Satan surely controls those with whom he does not agree.
Thus --- when it comes to judging good and evil, he is the center of his Universe -- not God.
"Christians" don't see it this way, they think you and I are "satans". So you can see, they are delusional to some extent.

Are they honest enough to admit that they are wrong and totally off-base? Only if they truly are honest - in which we haven't seen this to be the case yet.

A beautiful historic church on its last breath.

http://www.philly.com/philly/home/20121214_Ch...

I can't understand that dioceses around america don't help each other out in times of need. Every diocese seems to be an entity of its own.

195 roman catholic dioceses in america, the vatican with BILLIONS in investments, and no help coming from any of them that could have help preserve this historic building.

Shame on the powers to be.

<quoted text>So, there you have it. The world's most famous evangelist teaches that no one needs Jesus to be saved and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. They're already members of the Body of Christ whether they know it or not! All they have to do is believe in a God--like one of the three million Hindu gods; or perhaps the man-god whom many Buddhists worship, the Dalai Lama; or the Moslem's Allah; or perhaps the Cosmic God of the evolutionists; or the witches' horned god, Pan; or perhaps all that people must do is believe in the New Age deity--themselves--as God!
Or an individual can do the research on all of these and realize that the similarities of each religion is so "on the mark" that your last "example" is probably the truth - we are all become gods when we die.

Isn't it fun to speculate on the things we don't know?

who="Live Action"what a joke not believing in a man made god makes you a heathen.I think you ear ticklers are the heathens.And the only one doing miracles and healings are satan and evil spirits and demons .Yahweh does not take part in this world.Remember he left us here to destroy our self's with sin.and what a great job you are doing.

**********

You are making the joke. Man-made gods are Totem poles carved from a tree, or Buddha furnaces, or even your automobile.

And where do satan and evil spirits and demons come from? Why acknowledge them but deny GOD?

No, He didn't leave us here to destroy ourselves. He gave us a wonderful, beautiful earth, and family to enjoy. If you mess yours up, it is your fault.

Its engrained into them from childbirth. I was indoctrinated into catholicism. My parents spoke the same way, that if you weren't a christian you were not worthy of anything and it you were a protestant you were way down the line of righteousness below catholicism.

...Not one word ever spoken by God from christianity, or the gods from any previous beliefs. Its always men, creating stories, using the same METHOD OF OPERATION PROCEDURES to instill guilt if they question, which by itself instills FEAR.

.......If the catholic church changes policies on some issue, at the very same time so do the followers.

They are not kidding when followers are referred to as sheep.

want you to know that.
And grahams interview with larry king, he says that God loves satan, do you beleive that?
KING: Does God love him?
GRAHAM: Does God what?
KING: Satan. Does he love Satan?
GRAHAM: Well, he created him as Lucifer. In the 22nd of Ezekiel, it tells us about it, and he must love him, but the end of Satan is hell. Hell was created for the devil and his angels, or his demons, not for men.
KING: How about abortion?
GRAHAM: Same thing.
KING: Against it totally?
GRAHAM: Yes. But I'm not getting involved in it.
KING: So you believe it's the taking of a life?
GRAHAM: Yes, I do.
KING: But to protect the life of a mother you would permit it, right? I think you said that.
GRAHAM: Oh, yes.
KING: Yeah.
GRAHAM: Of course.
Gdday Chum. I believe that Graham's comments about God loving Satan is what happens when we start analyzing isues of the spiritua dimenson that we know nothing about.How would we know if God loves or does not love Satan.We think our limited human minds can grasp a spiritual world whos principles, nature, and laws far surpass ou comprehension. A better aswer would have been "I do not know but I know God loves us".We do this again and again because we
proudly have confidence in our intelect.Lets stick to the basics and leave such lofty questions to God.

Christians are taught that God has a divine plan. God knows the minute everything will be born the minute they will die, every tree that grows and withers and every sunny and rainy day.

...Many years ago God decided to create a plan for everything. He checked his plan over, said it was a good plan, and put his plan it into operation.

..Christians came along and decided that they wanted more. If they pray to God for something it will be granted, but doing so is trying to change Gods divine plan.

...What is the point in having a divine plan if every clown coming along can pray wanting to change his plan!

People pray for everything. Pray for a sunny day on their wedding, farmers just 1 mile down the road are praying for rain. Two opposing football teams praying before the game telling God we want to win! What is God to do? BILLIONS and BILLIONS of prayers beamed to God everyday wanting him to change his divine plan. If you have cancer, people pray wanting God to change the course of the cancer. If cancer was part of Gods plan why can any scmuck coming along pray to change his plan?

...Most people pray to God on Sunday, his day off. That is not very nice.

I never pray, and if there is a God he is giving me the thumbs up for not trying to screw up his divine plan by praying for something I want.

Just to help you along in cognito. YOu can bid on nuns habits on Ebay. There are also priests attire for sale. Check the sizes.

After you write your book "Nuns Like Me"....you could write a second book for those that always wonder about nuns sexuality and call your book .........."Become a nun and get none"

You could hang around a few of the Hallmark stores in disguise as a nun, to see who is working hard and who is not. Undercover BOSS!

Let me know how you make out.

ps ......where are you going to get commercial size rosary beads that the nuns have attached to their attire? I think they might be a COPO order. Central office Production order.
