  1. Trespassers You and the Law

    Posted June 2nd, 2012 at 11:18 PM by KillCarneyKlansman Criminal Psychology - A MANUAL FOR JUDGES, PRACTITIONERS, AND STUDENTS BY HANS GROSS, J. U. D. _Professor of Criminal Law at the University of Graz, Austria.

The old and still...
  2. Gen 4:16b-19

    †. Gen 4:16b . . and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden. The Hebrew word for "Nod" is from nowd (node) and means: wandering, vagrancy or exile. Precisely how Nod got its name, or where it was located is unknown. The only other place in the entire Old Testament where the word nowd is found is at Ps 56:9. †. Gen 4:17a . . Cain knew his wife, Cain, of course, married a sister or a niece because there were no other families on the entire planet at that time but the Adams. Some believe...
  3. Gen 4:13-16a

    †. Gen 4:13 . . Cain said to the Lord: My punishment is too great to bear! His punishment was actually very lenient. It's true that Cain would struggle to survive; but at least he was allowed to live. His kid brother was dead. How is that fair? FAQ : How did Cain get off with only a slap on the wrist? Why wasn't he executed for murder since God himself mandates capital punishment for murderers as per Gen 9:5-6, Ex 21:12-14, Lev 24:17, Lev 24:21, and Num 35:31-34? Does God practice a double...
  4. Prostituting our faith

    I read the comment on a post and it got me to thinking about our Christian faith and how we are used to further other's agendas. Things I believe the Bible clearly states are wrong are used to get votes for the politicians and laws are passed that we as part of the country are forced to live with. I know democracy is for the majority of the people, but Christianity which was the reason this country was settled, is now a minority. Christians no longer have "rights". Our constiution declared...
  5. Gen 4:9-12

    †. Gen 4:9 . . Yhvh said to Cain: Where is your brother Abel? And he said: I don't know. Am I my brother's keeper? Cain worshipped the True God, same as his brother, and he participated in the very same rituals, same as his brother; yet responded to his maker's simple question with a lie and a sarcastic retort. Those who are the Serpent's progeny often act like that because the Serpent's progeny have a Serpent's tongue. †. John 8:44-45 . .You are of your father the Devil, and the desires...
  6. Bleeding Heart

    Beneath the bravery, the heroics, the disguise. Beneath the happiness, the veil, the lies. In the soft and maellable, yet cold hard So infinitely precious, yet battered and scarred. A stream of life-giving red slowly ebbs away. The essence of life that twas meant to stay. Beneath the perfect surface, intense damage. We grasp at threads as scraps we try to salvage. Using tissue paper to stem the bleeding torrent. But it takes more than tissue to stop the current. Tortured, bleeding heart,...

  8. Gen 4:5b-8

    †. Gen 4:5b . . Cain was much distressed and his face fell. He was a whole lot worse than distressed. Cain was blazing mad. The word for "distressed" is from charah (khaw-raw') and means: to glow or grow warm; figuratively (usually) to blaze up, of anger, zeal, jealousy. Cain is actually in a passionate rage over this and certainly in no mood for a lecture. Central to Cain's problem is something very, very common in human nature: sibling rivalry. To be shown up by someone outside the...
  9. Christology

    Here is the doctrine that is about the greatest one-- Jesus. We are to be completely accurate about this doctrine because it is through him our salvation and redemption. we have to know this. that he is God and man. he was born of Mary by Holy Spirit. that he was exalted to the father's right hand that he was raised from the dead--resurrected. His blood purchased our salvation by covering over our sins also these important facts he will restore all things He will come a second time his...

  11. Gen 4:3-5a

    †. Gen 4:3-4a . . In the course of time, Cain brought an offering to the Lord from the fruit of the soil; and Abel, for his part, brought the choicest of the firstlings of his flock. The brothers' offerings were consistent with their professions: Abel was an animal husbandman, hence his offering was an animal, while Cain's profession was farming; hence his offering was produce. There's no indication in this scene suggesting their oblations were sacrifices for sin. The Hebrew word for their...
  12. Gen 4:1-2

    . From this point on in the book of Genesis, we will never again see another normal human being. Every one of them is going to be a sinful creature; and we are going to see just how wicked those sinful creatures can really be when they put their mind to it. †. Gen 4:1a . . Now the man knew his wife Eve, There is more to knowledge than just facts and data. Some kinds of knowledge can't be learned from a book or a lecture; they can only be learned by personal experience. Carnal knowledge is...
  13. Gen 3:21-24

    . †. Gen 3:21 . . And the Lord God made garments of skins for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. The exact cut and design of their garments isn't specified, and the words kethoneth (keth-o'-neth) and/or kuttoneth (koot-to'-neth) just indicate a shirt, or covering; as hanging from the shoulder. Modern shirts aren't long enough to provide an adequate covering of Man's body. Theirs were probably more like a knee or calf-length dress. A shirt implies that Eve's topless days were over;...
  14. Gen 3:17-20

    . †. Gen 3:17a . .To Adam He said: Because you did as your wife said, and ate of the tree about which I commanded you: You shall not eat of it God's biggest gripe there is that Adam put a woman's wishes over and above the wishes of man's creator; thus making women one of God's competitors for a man's loyalty. But you know; Adam probably balanced things out and figured that, all things considered, it was better to disappoint God than to disappoint his wife because, after all, Adam had to...
  15. Warrior

    Through the smoke and haze of the battlefield, in a ditch, amid the mud, sweat, tears, and blood, stood a weary warrior. The slain were fallen down around him. He had been fighting to save his country, and had just won a decisive victory. His chest rose up and down violently as he tried to catch his breath. He tried to sheath his sword, but his hand wouldn’t let go. The muscles had long since locked into place. Slowly he crawled over the corpses, out of the ditch. Ever so slowly he staggered...
