    Every day I read the news there is a story more shocking than the day before. Police in MO broke into a family's home, shot their puppy, and put the family on their knees to watch their puppy bleed to death...over an unpaid utility bill. One of the SWAT team put a gun to the head of the homeowners son and threatened: "One word mother****** and I'll put three into you!"

    Eight officers armed with M-4's for an unpaid utility bill. What's going on in America? Is this just in America or worldwide? I think we have to fear the government more than the criminals.

    You don't even have to open that second-rate site to know this is a load of bull, SG, you are such a sucker for that hype.

    Yes for sure...and - "It coming to a house near you"...

    Maybe they are just showing us all how powerful they are , and how helpless Mr Ordinary is.

    And stupid people still believe the Mr Ordinary owning guns is a bad thing!! And they want guns banned for the private sector!!!!

    But that is another story.

    And I agree, you will see worse and worse.
    That is why I never read any of that stuff.
    Much like putting members on the Ignore list on here. Ignoring makes for a better life.
    It is happening and will go on getting worse yet, whether we read it every day or not. Put those web pages on 'Ignore', you will enjoy your life much more. :)

    Just my two cents .

    Your such a SUCKER (or boot licker) to not believe ANYTHING critical of the imaginary world which you immerse yourself in:

    Please keep your two cents, and "IGNORE" what's actually going on in the world. I'm quite confident that nothing bad will come to us "christians".

    You engage your brain. No department, anywhere, is going to deploy a swat team over an unpaid utility bill.

    Hate to see a dog die, but it's either kill him or get bitten, right?

    Disappear?!? I hope you're saving ALL your posts which demonstrate your ignorance and contentment (BLISS) in that ignorance.

    It's must take a REAL MAN to be WRONG and DENY BEING WRONG.

    The good news is YOU won't need a "mental hospital" because the "showers" will medicate you. :)

    So back to the issue:

    SG (Sovereign Grace) provided a citation where in 2015 a SWAT TEAM invaded a home over an unpaid utility bill, SHOT THE DOG IN THE BACK as it was running away, threatened to "PUT THREE" into the woman's son, and turned the house belongings upside down.

    She sued and received a $750K settlement.


    If anybody disputes what SG (Sovereign Grace) has posted, then let them do their own "GOOGLE" search. But to simply deny what happened is worse than a LIE. And anyone who DEFAMES the presenters of what is accounted shall receive their judgement:

    1 Cor. 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.

    John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.


    But GOD is a gracious GOD who forgives and forgets the sins of all those who repent, if any have the integrity to confess their sins and repent of their ways, -- OR -- a person can receive their "reward" in the eternal lake of fire.

    Rev. 20:14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; 15 and if any one’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

    In my post I did not say that it wasn't true.
    What I was trying to say was- I do not read or listen to any of that stuff any more.

    I know all about the One World Government Plans. We were first enlightened to that back in the 60.
    We also read the banned book "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"
    We followed it through , George Sorus and the rest...

    Knowing it will, and is 'The plan' , does not mean that I have to soak myself in it and keep read the stuff.
    I am informed...but I know that GODS Plan is the winning Plan.

    THAT is where my focus is.

    I try to live how God tells me to live.
    Some people read much more about all this stuff than they read their the own Bibles!! If we spent as much time praying in The Kingdom, maybe, just maybe we would see some things turn around.

    But, 'this stuff' sells books, preoccupies christians, and in time, send them hiding under their beds!!!

    None of it is what God told us as Christians and followers to do.
    He didn't say "watch the world" - He said "Watch and Pray".

    Ph 4.8
    "Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

    And that is worth more than just my two cents... lol

    Hi BG,
    Your post was clear in that you were dismayed by the news. GOD says to think on whatever is lovely and pure, and it is hard on us to hear and see the decline of our society and it's eventual collapse. :)

    Re: Post #14

    It looks like some christians (small "c") are unrepentant when they make false and/or defamatory claims. But one has to consider whether Judas was a Christian (capital "C") and fell away, or whether he was even a Christian (capital "C") to begin with. And if not a capital "C", then probably not even a small "c"; -- maybe just a person masquerading as a small "c", occasionally referred to as "goats" versus "sheep".

    Yeah, we have them in our church, and I dare say every church,

    This "small/big c" descriptive garbage is a blatant violation of "Judge not..." which refers not to behavior, but motive - you're essentially saying, "You disagree with me BECAUSE (motive) you aren't a Christian". How dare you take the place of our Savior Judge? Are you able to know the heart, which thing the Bible says only God knows? Again, taking the place of God. There's a Greek term for that: "anti-christos" which means "in the place of Christ". The papacy is always looking for a few lewd men, if you're interested.

    1 Cor. 5:12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? 13 God judges those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.”

    Now if you admit that you're not a Christian, but you like going to a church because you enjoy the social interaction, and sometimes the free pot luck meals where everyone brings something, and you bring a fork, -- then you're correct that you shouldn't be judged! :)


    But as a Christian or christian, I would expect you to repent of your false/defamatory claims for a Post that was COMPLETELY ACCURATE, and you and and another poster decided to take an opposite position:

    In 2015 a SWAT TEAM invaded a home over an unpaid utility bill, SHOT THE DOG IN THE BACK as it was running away, threatened to "PUT THREE" into the woman's son, and turned the house belongings upside down.

    She sued and received a $750K settlement.


    SECONDLY,
    Quote @Phoneman777:
    I'm sure we'll realize which mental hospital you're in before visiting hours are over.

    This looks like you've JUDGED me! So I guess you either defy your own beliefs, or you actually have none. PLUS you're dishonest in the merits of the OP and assail those that have researched that event as being TRUE.


    What could bring these "spirits" out of the woodwork except the TRIBULATION?!?

    Judging someone's words, behavior, or mental state as not being in accordance with Biblically established criteria of a Christian is not a violation of "Judge not..." However, judging someone's MOTIVE for those things is.

    When does a person judge the motives of others?
    "He thinks that way because he ain't saved."
    "She does that because she's not a Christian."
    "People who do not agree with me are Christians with a small "c" - not the real deal."
