  1. No. I was just mentioning Sodom and Gomorrah as an example where the corruption of society in those places led to their destruction. But the world today is in a general state of corruption and rebellion against God. No one group owns that. Most of the world is opposed to God and the Bible. I was referring to the general corruption and evil in the world. According to the Bible, man has an evil heart. So, you can draw your own conclusions as to what all the nuclear weapons means or where it could lead with evil men in control. The world could self destruct much of itself before the Lord returns. But actually the book of Revelation does give some information that things will be bad during the Tribulation.
  2. Just remember God became angry with Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed them. Today society is becoming more corrupt and the U.S. has something like 6,000 nuclear weapons ready to go; presumably Russia has a similar amount. It wouldn't take much to trigger WW3 and destroy most of life on the planet and those remaining in great distress as they die off slowly. But this is not what the Bible prophecies so I guess it's not going to happen that way. But there could still be a nuclear war with 100s of millions killed and 100s of millions suffering and dying. I think all the corruption of society is just another sign we are in the last days before the Lord returns.
  3. I thought I read a news report recently that said the South African government recently passed a law to confiscate the farms from the white farmers with no compensation, but I could be wrong. Can't remember where I saw it.
  4. I hate to disappoint you but your life is not your own. It belong to God and he will decide when it ends, whether you believe it or not. You are also not your own authority in many ways and never have been. When you grew up your mother or parents, whatever the case, decided many things for you and had some authority over you. You are required to obey the laws of the land and cannot do whatever you please. So no you are not your own boss in many ways. You are under authorities.
  5. I would also add that doctor assisted suicide is a slippery slope because once the sanctity of life is abandoned, there is no limit to how far society can go and when it should be applied.
  6. When you use the term "right" (to take one's own life, you are reciting a man-made dogma repeated by people who do not know God or the Bible. Human life belongs to God and he is the only one to decide when it ends. It is folly to put one's self in the place of God and attempt to make those kind of decisions or applaud them.
  7. Actually yes, he is mentioned in the Bible. I think Satan is the prince of devils. You can read about Lucifer's fall from heaven in Isaiah. He was once a beautiful angel but rebelled against God and drew a third of the angels with him. Jesus healed a devil-possessed boy. "And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour." Matthew 17:18 "And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not." Luke 4:35
  8. Doctors have an assortment of medications they use today to make patients last days be as comfortable as possible. There are professionals who are experienced and know all about these things.
  9. Of course Satan wouldn't want you to believe he has anything to do with it. Your best hope is in the pages of the King James Bible. "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32. We are prisoners until God sets us free. We can be controlled by the system of this world, some ideology such as humanism, Marxism, Communism, etc. until we are set free. Jesus said he came to set the prisoners free. Suggest the Gospel of John and Proverbs.
  10. So if you saw a boy on the railing of a bridge getting ready to jump, you would tell him to go ahead and get it done? You have been completely deceived by the prince of this world known as Satan. The Bible warns in many places to ignore the teachings of God means death in every way and a lost eternity. "A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:" Proverbs 1:5 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:7 King James Bible otherwise known as the Authorized Version
  11. The totalitarian system, as in China and North Korea, is a poor system to be trying to emulate. Doctors who have trained for their field have a right to be able to continue to be caregivers and protectors of human life. Anyone interested in the profession and believes in the sanctity of life has the right to choose to be a doctor without interference by councillors of death. Nobody needs to be taking their own life. It is foolish to be suggesting it is acceptable for anyone to be taking their own life (or anyone else's). The medical system has palliative care with powerful medications to ease the pain of those requiring it to make their last days as comfortable as possible. Today there are people debating the possibility of changing the system to allow doctor-assisted suicide for children, mentally ill and infants. We are swiftly moving toward the Nazi ideology of final solutions for people. The medical system may quietly embrace this as a way to terminate those they deem have lived long enough or whose life is not worth living and thus save the system money. Mercy is not a word that fits in with any kind of suicide.
  12. That's true. No doctor should be forced out of his profession after spending years of his life and money to become a doctor by some authoritarian government who wants to impose it's totalitarian ideology on society. We also have a shortage of doctors in many towns and cannot afford to lose any doctors. Trudeau is an authoritarian who is trying to impose his progressive ideology on society. Probably inherited some Marxist leanings from his father who reportedly was somewhat that way. Pierre Trudeau loved Castro and Communist dictatorships and shunned our traditional allies. No doctor who disagrees with those things should be forced to perform them or aid them in some way. Freedom of conscience must be respected.
  13. You worship the left Marxist idea of "equality without discrimination of all things LGBT" but the world actually discriminates against countless things and countless people for a million different reasons. Depending where you live, you will not have the same medical facilities as someone in a city who lives close to a big hospital with all kinds of the latest medical equipment and specialists. If you are in a small town you might not even have your own doctor. You might have to go to a walk-in clinic or drive a 100 km. That's discrimination right there.
  14. Everyone should have the right to make a cake or not make a cake for whomever they wish. Goddess, you don't understand the bible. It's the same as doctor-assisted suicide or abortion. You can't ask someone who disagrees with those things on religious grounds to help you perform doctor-assisted suicide or abortion on someone. That makes the person helping complicit.
  15. Disagreeing with some practice or belief is not "reviling'. Calling people who disagree "revilers" is just a way to shut down debate or disagreement, much like liberals who call anyone who disagrees with M103 "racists" or bigots.
  16. Yes. The RC church has it's relics which are highly venerated. A lot of money has been made by the Vatican over the centuries with relics and fake claims.
  17. The word religious can mean pursuing something with a kind of fervour or deep conviction even if it doesn't fit in with one of the world's recognized religions. Trudeau for example is very religious about his feminism and fake defence of abortion rights by cutting off funding for summer students. He is quite religious in a perverse way. Another example might be the leaders of Communist revolutions. Chairman Mao or Castro pursued their ideology in a religious fervour. To them it was a kind of religion.
  18. This will be a good topic for you to get your digs in and try to stir up a bit of dung.
  19. There is no fake Christianity involved. Believers are called to follow the Bible which expressly condemns homosexuality. It's as simple as that. It's wrong to try to force people to do something against their conscience.
  20. The Rebel Media has sent a investigative journalist and cameraman with security to South Africa to put together a documentary on this. Apparently white farmers have been attacked by black armed militias.
  21. I think some politicians are out of touch with many American citizens. I believe most Americans want to see some sort of gun control and restrictions on assault weapons while a minority are supporting the NRA tough gun rights stand. Big money is involved in funding pro NRA politicians.
  22. You forget the U.S. is not a tiny banana republic on an island. The U.S. is supposed to be a leader of the free world and a model of what the rest of the world should strive for.
  23. Yes, but the U.S. is still in a league of it's own. I think there were over 14,000 gun-related deaths around 2015 and over 20,000 injured. A 30 year low doesn't have much meaning when you're in those numbers.
  24. That's true but it's too bad authorities and gun sellers didn't stop the long list of other killers from buying military style guns over the past several years.
  25. I just read an article about a man in Texas who was shot twice in a church by a police officer, after he stopped a shooter and took the gun away. This happened the same day as the Florida school massacre two weeks ago. Fortunately nobody was killed at this church. Several people charged a man with a handgun and this man helped by taking the handgun away from him. Then a police officer arrived and told him to drop the gun. He was bending over to put it down because he thought if he dropped it, it would go off. The officer shot him twice. He has a blood clot in one lung but is recovering in a hospital. He will be taking legal action and wants compensation from the police department. This proves how dangerous it would be for even some teachers to be armed with a gun. The police are taught to shoot first and not take any chances. Ask questions after.
