I Hope Someday God Will Give Me A Private Jet..
AMEN BROTHER!

You Hear People, God Himself, Gave Them dem Jets, So Why are People Still Sceptical About This Issue?

While recently flying home on his sleek private jet from?a?religious convention, anti gay televangelist Jesse Duplantis was asked by God himself, ?Do you like your plane? Do you?really?like it??

This prompted?Duplantis to have a long, hard think?about his use of private jets. Afterwards, he?determined that,?yes, he?does?like his plane.?Not only that, but he?needs?it. Because without his private jet, he would have to fly commercial, and that?s simply not conductive to spreading the word of Jesus.

After sharing his story,?Duplantis and his co-host Kenneth Copeland then spent five entire minutes defending their use of private jets (paid for, of course, by their blind followers who send them donations on a daily basis). Private jets, the men feel,?are necessary for their line of work

The televangelists defended their luxury jets late last month in part by contending it would be impractical to fly on a commercial airline ?with a bunch of demons?? that will bog down their busy schedules with prayer requests.

Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis argued on Dec. 29 during ?Believer?s Voice of Victory? that having their own planes was vital to their work.

In the segment of Mr. Copeland?s ?Believer?s Voice of Victory? television program, Duplantis?recalled a story where he was on a plane and had to unbuckle his seat belt to speak to God.

Interesting comparison between Jesus and Muhammad

I enjoyed this article because it addresses the fact that throughout history religion has been used as an excuse for war. People have killed in the name of their God. Given this undisputed fact, how can we describe Christianity or Islam as a religion of peace? How do we decide if either or neither are inherently peaceful?

It turns out that the best way to judge a religion or political ideology is to look at both the words and the actions of the person who started the movement in the first place. If I start a religion and I tell my followers to never eat meat and I write my rules down for never eating meat and I myself never eat meat, then any follower who eats meat is therefore not a true follower. They have no right to call themselves a follower of my religion as they do not emulate my actions, my words or my rules.

Islam claims to be a religion of peace. Christianity also claims to be a religion of peace. Are both claims true or is only one of the two religions truly of peace?

Hang on a minute…you can’t name your kid Christ, but you can name them Muhammed?

So…Christ was banned as a name, as “Registrar-General of?Births, Deaths and Marriages Jeff Montgomery said names deemed?offensive, such as swear words or those of a religious nature such as?Christ, would be blocked.”

How many children were named Muhammed? Surely this is exactly the?same?

It seems you can’t draw an image of Muhammed but you can name your kids after him…a drawing is offensive but a name is not.

In the Herald’s world too, the drawing is offensive if it is of Muhammed, but not of Jesus.

The Herald reports:

“Special Constable” is among dozens of Kiwi names rejected last year because they were too bizarre or offensive for newborns.

Internal Affairs declined 60 name requests last year, including “Mr”, “Lucifer” and “Christ”. One child was set to be called “3rd” before the proposal was vetoed and another narrowly avoided being dubbed “Royal-Rule”. Five people were also knocked back for trying to name their offspring “/”.

The department’s rules forbid any name that implied a child held a title or a rank, so “Duke”, “Prince,” “Princess” and “Majesty” were dismissed. The most popular name rejected was “Justice” which featured six times. Registrar-General of Births, Deaths and Marriages Jeff Montgomery said names deemed offensive, such as swear words or those of a religious nature such as Christ, would be blocked.

Why we actually celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December will shock you

Have you always assumed that Christmas was celebrated on Jesus’ birthday?

Perhaps you know that a Pagan festival on the 25th was changed to a Christmas festival in order to help convert Pagans to Christianity?

I was aware that it used to be a Pagan festival, but what that festival involved and how we have kept many of its nasty traditions I did not know.

Prepare to be shocked and educated.

II.???? How Did Christmas Come to Be Celebrated on December 25?

A.????Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25.? During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the week long celebration.? The festival began when Roman authorities chose ?an enemy of the Roman people? to represent the ?Lord of Misrule.?? Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week.? At the festival?s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.

B.??? The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival?s observance in his time.? In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).

I don’t know about you but I don’t think I will ever look at a gingerbread man in quite the same way that I used to.

C.??? In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it.? Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.

D.????The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia?s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus? birthday.

E.????? Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia.? As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, ?In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior?s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.?? The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.

O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

O Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in heaven God’s holy word.
Give to our Father glory in the Highest;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

All Hail! Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
O Jesus! for evermore be Thy name adored.
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
