Jesus did not institute the Christian church

“Jesus had very little to do with religion. He had no home in any particular religious sect. He did not identify himself with the Essenes, Pharisees, Zealots, Priests or Rabbis. He did not subscribe to any school of thought, whether it was the school of the great Rabbi Hillel, Philo the philosopher, or the school of the Cynics, all of which had a strong following in his day.

Jesus identified with the whole of humankind irrespective of race, religion, or gender. His vision transcended any sect. He was not a member of any exclusive group. Jesus recognized that no group had a monopoly on the Truth or God. Some of Jesus’s earliest followers wrongly assumed that only their small group could claim to be his true disciples. But Jesus taught that any person who listened to the Spirit of God inside them and loved their neighbor were themselves a Jesus…

“… dictatorship means nothing else but this — Power without limit, resting directly upon force, restrained by no laws, absolutely unrestrained by rules.” – Lenin  

On September 11, 2001, a horrific crime was committed.

On September 12, 2001, the American people became suspects. *

Guantanamo Sept  11 TrialOn September 14, 2001, the American president became a dictator. It was on this day that the House voted 420-1** and the Senate voted 98-0 to pass the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in response to the 9/11 attacks.

It is a very short document…

Denver Radio Talk Host Suggests Nuking Mecca

Kristina Cook hosts Grassroots Radio Colorado on KLZ 560AM in Denver. The show runs from 5-7 pm Denver time every weeknight.

Yesterday, she suggested that we nuke Mecca. The podcast can be found here. The “nuke Mecca” business comes just after the 12:00 mark.

Is there no end to the War Party’s bloodlust?

Jesus had another way to “deal with” Islam – Matthew 28:18-20. My guess is that more politically active American Christians form their worldview through talk radio than through the examples and teachings of Jesus Christ.

How Christians Can Triumph Over Terrorism

Food for the Thinkers:

Remember: Christians are not to fight as the world fights. See II Corinthians 10:4.

1. Fear God, not men

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”—Jesus (Matt. 10:28)

Fearing God is not like fearing men, because unlike man, God’s nature is incorruptible and unchangeable. “For I am the LORD, I change not,” Malachi 3:6a, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8

Both testaments, Old and New, teach to fear God only.

  • Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
  • Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. 1 Peter 2:17
  • But it shall…

9/11: Yes I Do Buy the Official Story

Food for the Thinkers:

This PROVES that the official story is true!

Not by Doug Newman, but I wish it was.

What the establishment tells us about 9/11, as compiled by the Corbett Report.

I TOTALLY BELIEVE THE OFFICIAL STORY. THIS CONVINCES ME THAT IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE!

Warning: potty word at 4:25.

9/11: Even If the Official Story Is True, the Official Response Is Still Wrong

Food for the Thinkers:

You don’t need to be a “truther” to know the official response is EXTREMELY messed up!

_____________________________________________________________

I am going to assume, for the sake of this article, that 9/11 happened exactly according to the official story. Even if this story is entirely true, the official response has still been totally wrong, as have been the oft-repeated clichés of those who believe the official story.

Some examples:

1.     The terrorists hate us for our freedom. Even in 2001, America had the world’s highest incarceration rate. Were we that free? They far more likely hate us for our invasions, occupations, coups, bombings, sanctions and the resulting deaths. You reap what you sow. And when you throw your weight around militarily the way America does, it is inevitable…

9/11: Why I Don’t Buy the Official Story

Food for the Thinkers:

I don’t know exactly what happened on that horrible day. However, this does not prove the official story. There are just way too many holes in it for me to believe.
You need to question ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING your government tells you!!!

“In war, the first casualty is the truth.”
Aeschylus, Greek dramatist, 525-456 B.C.

Where were you on the morning of September 11, 2001 when you heard The News?

I was finishing breakfast and listening to Peter Boyles on KHOW 630 in Denver.  I vividly remember him interrupting the conversation and saying something like “We have just received word that an airplane has crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers in New York.”

I turned on the TV set and saw a massive cloud of black smoke emanating from near the top of the first tower. And then – WHAM! – the second tower was hit. I couldn’t pull myself away…
