    one might say this for a lot of professions, including psychologists and psychiatrists

    read an article where one senator is upset that obama is demonizing those who oppose ‘his’ iran deal …

    smells of reverse psychology on obama’s part …

    let’s see what these guys have to say on the deal:

    It is about God’s coming kingdom, Fran, but you forget that God invented human government and that godly people were called throughout biblical history to influence and even play a role in governance. Some of the godliest who ever lived were, according to the Bible, high-level government appointees — Joseph and Daniel come immediately to mind.

    For people of conscience to pull out of all involvement in government is heinously wrong — it abandons government, a key mandate of God, to corruption and tyranny. It ignores the fact that, despite the fact that we live in a sin-sick world, God has chosen to preserve this world and work His will and purposes in it.

    ________

    no, jack … this is where believers are misinformed … God gives MAN choice … it was man who INVENTED GOVERNMENT. God did not choose government — man chose government.

      are we to show responsibility in our lives—yes … does this include voting—yes, if there is a candidate worth voting into office that we feel is honest and a proper choice for this day

      • opheliart permalink

        this is where we render unto caesar … but no, God did not invent man’s government

        this is part of the reason there is such disparity in understanding the Writings … and WHY there is so much battle about what GOD did or did not say

    The liberal group MoveOn.org said its 8 million members would organize a “donor strike” to withhold campaign contributions from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee as well as “any Democratic candidate who succeeds in undermining the president’s diplomacy with Iran.”

    how does the liberal act any differently from the conservative (fundamentalist)? they are just as convinced of their rightness on a given topic, and they use numbers and money in much the same way … “the god” may be called something different … viewed as something different …

    Definition of RELIGION:
    : the belief in a god or in a group of gods

    : an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods

    : an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group

      politics IS religion

      and we have said too many times now: religion provides structure but should never exceed love

      now, where we said that christianity will become a political party, we are seeing the strengthening of a position. right or wrong (usually both) it holds people accountable in a way that tradition religion may not (clergy child sex abuse/misuse of government perks for charitable organizations, etc). you see, if man refuses to hold his own accountable for certain acts—if he refuses to be honest, act responsibly, fair, decent and demonstrate care (love neighbor as self) … he will be held to his own law: what you believe may be what you receive

    More on secular Jews:

    They don’t believe in god, Abraham or Moses. And 1.5 million Conservative Jews and their rabbis also believe that Abraham and Moses were myths.

    A-Max, what’s your point? US government should not be giving them all that home security $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for protection? (installing cameras in their buildings? what good will that do but show who steals what? a guy with a gun is a guy with a gun) what is the US government protecting them from?

    secular society?

    what if we started numerous “organizations” … called them gnostics something or other …

    and those fearful … or … maybe man is hateful of the GNOSTIC because he was TAUGHT to believe these are antagonistic to the ‘norm’ of belief (operated through the system of the day: rome and those like it) …

    received 110 million from homeland security?

    first of all … never would we take 110 mil for PROTECTION of our buildings and organizations … second, it is not of our work and worth to operate in this fashion

        if religious charities are operating in an honest manner and showing itself to be open to all then where is there need for this kind of protection?

        there needs to be more thorough STUDY of these charities and nonprofits …

    😉

    did not watch the debate—was busy doing “homework”

    can you see the positioning in this?

  10. opheliart permalink

    case 1

    mexico is a roman catholic country
    roman catholic hierarchy rules (which involves bishops, archbishops of those provinces … in cahoots with their roman catholic political partners—each covering each other’s back)
    people are fleeing from what? are some of these coming to america plants for selling drugs? sure! and what comes with these people are what? customs, beliefs … traditions and some … but this does not mean they will remain in these same … which causes rome to what? act in some fashion—yes? (pretty obvious, folks)
    see the wrap around system? so, who/what helps the ‘evil’ in the US … to make the US and its ways look evil? those who do not agree with US belief system—A DEMOCRACY
    rome has never been a democracy … the catholics do not get to vote for their leadership, therefore, rome must find ways to put ‘their’ leadership into play …. even if it involves dishonest acts … remember how the system of belief was won: power-mongering, torture, murder, overtaking villages by force, INDOCTRINATION … which includes a lot of idols and gimmicks

    roman catholicism cannot survive without the poor
    their SYSTEM OF GOVERNING is a hierarchy that demands lessers … poor people
    even their current pope (the institution) is USING THIS and climate concerns and … to ELEVATE SELF-INSTITUTION to look palpable … “good” somehow “worthy” or holy-righteous … yada-yada

    it is so obvious we cannot help but say, ah, the confederacy of dunces … however, each uses for his own gain——yes?

    • opheliart permalink

      case 2

      rome (vatican, bishops and …) WANT very much for the immigrants to come into unites states … and have US PAY for these … or pay them to render some service to these (check the numbers on these) … or at least give them special perks …

      they want the burden on the democracies to cause contention and partnering—a way for them to secure allies in the midst of a SCANDAL OF ABUSE AND CORRUPTION
      their image is lax and icky … even evil … they cover over this rotting and diseased image, and their ignorance by using the feed the poor methodologies … but they refuse to admit that THEY are the reason for this

      • opheliart permalink

        a country overwhelmingly of one theology run by selfish and bullying dictators using and abusing LAYPEOPLE … MEMBERS … (by force from long long ago) …
        insensitive and aristocratic patriarchs are RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS INFLUX —people fleeing—

        but beware … they USE IT FOR THEIR OWN GAIN

        the Q is … where do you STAND on this?

  11. opheliart permalink

    I did not watch the debate, but if trump blames the people he misses the bigger piece—ROMAN CATHOLIC RULE IN MEXICO!!!

    but at some point the people must decide WHERE AND HOW TO RAISE THEIR YOUTH
    remain enslaved to a system of brutish elites … or move to awareness, and freedoms

    and based on where many are going … this is a first step, but even these must beware how they, and their children are used

    • opheliart permalink

      trump is a business man. he knows how deals are made, swayed … paid
      we would never vote for a trump for president of the states, but his rhetoric is REVEALING … and makes certain groups squirm … as I told my niece recently: he serves as a metaphor … no one takes him “seriously” (literally) … not even him, but he does cause people to shift from their cozy seat

      he lets it all hang out ( sort off like david of the ot?) … some are disgusted … we say, ah, look at man revealing his natural self 😀 … not bad … not bad at all … but of course not altogether appropriate, however, IN THE RIGHT HANDS … his rhetoric can be revealing more than what is COMFORTABLE for some … and actually HELPS the poor AND female more than people realize … and he ain’t no ruse to the fundametalist

      • opheliart permalink

        he is showing us the OPERATION OF THE RELIGIOUS SECTS if anyone is not willfully ignorant or complacent … or trying to hide something

  12. opheliart permalink

    a lot of people realize that people with money and businesses need workers, and it is here that they get their opportunities to start landscaping businesses or tree pruning businesses and … many go on to become informed persons in these fields … one does not even need to spend thousands and thousands on education or expect others to pay for this … the internet offers a lot to review
    and work … actually going out and trying your hand at something …

    if you want the shortcut—selling drugs … you endanger many
    stealing ….

    why are we fast becoming a handout nation? this teaches nothing
    sharing is good providing what is being shared is not dangerous … ah, much to be said in all of this …………..

  13. opheliart permalink

    after a very quick review of the reviews of last night’s debates … we see almost exactly what we always see … bullshit

    • opheliart permalink

      sorry, we mean bull’s shit 😉

      • opheliart permalink

        clearly there is a flat bed grid of understanding at play …

        take, for example, bush’s comments earlier in the week …

        these are used by the women candidates because they have little else to use … ?

        disappointing. to us it was clear bush was not clear in his first statement—-would you want to be treated fairly in your views? also, the funding for women is not really a gold star operation now is it? there a people making a lot of money off of this which helps the women grow how?
        ah, but we won’t get into this because people want absolute convenience and they eradicate what they don’t want, including the fact that men like the conveniences, too … AND where and how are those truly in need being denied because some people are just flat out lazy?

    To bible believing Christians, Cruz may sound like their man. But I doubt that all are aware of the Dominionist movement that has promoted him. Read about “Seven Mountains Dominionism,” who, according to their websites, aim to have conservative Christians take control of every aspect of government, business and the culture in order to pave the way for the return of Christ. The New Apostolic Reformation, is another group closely tied to Seven Mountains dominionism. A few years ago, these groups pronounced Ted Cruz as the man to lead America. His father is one leader of this movement. Other groups such as the American Family Association are supportive. I am a Christian but I don’t wish to live under a theocracy. Buyer beware.

    *************

    hmm … interesting, but nothing to be alarmed about.

    cruz is actually struggling in his ‘commands’ … wherever these may be … not seeing his ‘dominion’ enforced in his quadrant …. for it is just another rome … and rome will continue to deteriorate

    what we do see is “christianity” taking shape. we said several times now that the FACE of christianity will change as will the landscape of religion …
    in brief, this means that there will be things coming forth which will alter the page

    christianity will become a world ‘religion’, or way of thought … with the exception of some, including me … as I move into different work. at present, man resists change even though he claims change is needed … what is needed is a move in understanding of what “Jesus” was about … but more importantly, there needs to be a movement towards CHRIST UNDERSTANDING.

    just one important example … Jesus, as PROPHET, spoke on the stoning of a woman caught in adultery (this is highly symbolic in the SPIRITUAL so the TEACHING is far more) … but to look at it from a just perspective … would we in america stone a woman caught in adultery? no. Jesus was addressing the GOVERNING PRACTICES of the day … where man was favored even though it was quite possible man forced himself on the woman as women were treated unfairly and often viewed as property … so, when Jesus addresses the men, he calls them to UNDERSTANDING, but before they can WITNESS in this, they must first see what? self

    loving self means what? if you degrade self can you love neighbor?

    Jesus … if we go by way of the story … 3 yrs ministering on foot (boat on occasion) … no forcing anything on the people … just a “take up and follow” … carry nothing with you … NO BEGGING … (sorry mther teresa worshippers) … those following stayed with “friends” people interested in the Teachings … the Movement … get out of the old system of abuse and … grow

    • opheliart permalink

      once people begin to EVOLVE in this … christianity takes on a new face …

      • opheliart permalink

        you see, america cannot continue with dual leadership sources … coming from two distinctly different power frames … this has been an ongoing struggle … it has to stop!

        rome must get the hell out of AMERICAN POLITICS! America was NEVER intended for roman rule … two powerhouses —no-no-no

        the ship sinks with this beast—TOO MUCH WEIGHT!!!

        so, take care when lawmakers-candidates say they are roman catholic … do they have ties to rome? the power elites in the vatican? messy whore-mongering throughout the world? take care … roman catholicism had its time in the spotlight and now it is the turn of another …

        added: and this is true of any candidate of another governing sect
        it is not for these men and women to impose their belief systems on a democracy—it is that simple

        as for what is right and wrong in policies and practices of the nation … it’s all over the darn place like a messy bedroom where nobody sleeping in it took the time to clean … bernie wants to leave his post while vt is struggling with a heroin epidemic whereas elizabeth chose to not run … so, this tells you something about the affairs of the state

        research—informed voices … will help make decisions

    like this, for instance … enough! check the man’s history as you should any person applying for a job … ESPECIALLY WITH CHILDREN …

    we are wasting time and money on these things while the rapists and abusers are free to rape and abuse—and this is happening still WITHIN THE ROMAN FREAKING CATHOLIC CHURCH! and these people continue to go duh?

        you people are the biggest darn hypocrites … your institution is full of gay priests bishops archbishops and … some still taking advantage of CHILDREN and women and in some countries you allow women to die in hospitals because you are IGNORANT. period. get over yourselves or GET OUT!

    yes, a horror—a bad-bad thing, scam
    but who/what is the headmaster of abuse—destruction and …

    who/what set the stage for this mindset?

    • opheliart permalink

      gee, one could ask:

      what might have happened if THE CHRIST were permitted to BECOME within the mind of man? what if the roman catholic church, understood as rome, had not declared ITSELF the church, and devised its regime to overpower the world through OBEDIENCE TO ITS HIERARCHAL OFFICES—through use of torture and death? injecting into societies a mindset of obedience to manmade doctrines … theologies that use force and predestination to overpower-undermine and destroy opposing factions? what if …

      I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE … instead of rome’s ideology had been able to grow … ?

    I was referring to the article that was taken down; it addressed the heroin problem in Vermont.

    hardly addressing the heroin epidemic, who … like we said … “not an essay … just a question”

    so, in your opinion no one is permitted to ask a question—publicly?

    • opheliart permalink

      so … it seems that dr who feels it unreal to ask a man RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITES STATES HOW VT BECAME AMERICA’s HEROIN CAPITAL …

      how odd … seems like a damn good question for this senator … gee, maybe who should spend some time in NE … and watch the mommies cryin’ telling how their babies are dyin’ …

      I see it almost everyday, who … almost every single day …

      • opheliart permalink

        as a matter of fact, we addressed this over a year ago … and posted an article or two …
