The Dangers of 'Lordship Salvation' and Ecumenicalism

Lordship Salvation Heresy — Ecumenical Bridge to Catholicism
By David J. Stewart

Many Christians are well aware of the heresy of Lordship Salvation, but did you know that Catholics created it?

Satan knows that if he can get Protestant churches to adopt a faith AND WORKS false view of salvation, then ecumenicals will succeed in uniting Catholicism with Evangelical Christianity.

An ecumenical is an unbeliever who falsely claims to be a Christian, who works to unite different religions together under one umbrella. Their purpose is to prepare the world to receive the coming Antichrist and the religious False Prophet.

Where did the heresy of Lordship Salvation come from? Look no further than the corrupt New International Version (NIV) of the Bible. One perverted Scripture stands alone, more than any other verse in the NIV, Romans 10:9 . . .

The NIV says, "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The King James Bible says, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

JESUS IS LORD? That's not what the King James Bible says at all.

The originators (Westcott and Hort) of the corrupt Greek manuscripts from which the NIV, the Jehovah's Witness New World Translation, and all other modern perversions of the Scriptures come, were pro-Catholics. It is more than coincidental that all modern versions of the Bible are based upon the corrupt Greek work of two Catholic infiltrators. Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Westcott and Hort were unsaved heretics.

I could give you many changes which Westcott and Hort made to the Bible to cater to Catholics. One for example is found in James 5:16 where the King James Bible instructs us to confess our “faults” one to another. Westcott and Hort changed the word faults to “sins,” thus encouraging Catholics to continue going into the unbiblical confessional booth.

Every heretic that teaches Lordship Salvation quotes Romans 10:9 from the NIV, including Pat Robertson on his website. Tragically, the once doctrinally sound Moody Bible Institute has now fallen by the wayside, also teaching Lordship Salvation (which has become a spiritual epidemic in America). It's like terminal cancer spreading throughout the body. Romans 10:9 in the NIV requires a lost sinner to make Jesus the Lord of their life to be saved. That is TOTALLY contrary to everything the King James Bible teaches. It is a false gospel message. It is sending people to Hell.

As further evidence that the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible is a Catholic infiltration of churches today, consider that the owner of the exclusive printing rights to the NIV, Rupert Murdoch, was recently made a Knight by the Pope. Starting to get the picture? The NIV was published with a much darker purpose than just to make money, it was intended to infiltrate churches around the world with the heresy of Lordship Salvation, which essentially teaches that faith AND WORKS are required for salvation.

Ray Comfort is infamous for teaching the heresy of Lordship Salvation. Mr. Comfort says FAITH ALONE in Christ is insufficient to save anyone...

If belief is all that is necessary for salvation, then the logical conclusion is that one need never repent. However, the Bible tells us that a false convert "believes" and yet is not saved (Luke 8:13); he remains a "worker of iniquity."

Ray Comfort is wrong concerning the Biblical meaning of repentance. There is a fine line between the turning from sin that genuine repentance brings; verses the turning from sin that false prophets like Ray Comfort require for people to get saved. Lordship Salvationists put the cart before the horse. A changed life is the FRUIT (result) of genuine repentance; and not a part of saving-faith. Our part in salvation is simply to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST to forgive our sins (Acts 16:31); God does the rest. Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

In sharp contrast to Ray Comfort, Dr. Harry Ironside (former pastor of Moody Memorial Church, 1930-1948) correctly understood repentance to mean…

"Repentance is the recognition of my sinnership — the owning before God that I am as vile as He has declared me to be in His holy Word."
SOURCE: Except Ye Repent, by Dr. Harry Ironside, chapter 3
Lordship Salvation is the teaching that a lost sinner must not only acknowledge their guilt of sin to be saved, but they must also be willing to stop living a sinful lifestyle and consecrate their life to Christ in holy living. However, surrendering one's life to Christ as part of saving-faith is an act of self-righteousness! A person doesn't give up their sinful lifestyle to get saved; they give up their sinful lifestyle because they are saved. There's a big difference!

But of course, many believers never grow in the Lord to the point where they consecrate their life to God. Salvation and discipleship are two entirely different matters. Judas was a disciple (a follower) of Jesus, but he had never been born-again (saved). Judas went to Hell. You don't get to Heaven by being a follower of Jesus Christ; you get to Heaven because you come to God as a guilty sinner and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sins. Salvation is receiving; not giving. Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).

So we see from Romans 10:9 in the corrupt NIV where Lordship Salvationists get the foolish idea that God requires sinners to declare “JESUS IS LORD” to be saved. To do so in their minds means to stop living in sin, clean up one's life and commit to obeying God the rest of one's life. That's what Romans 10:9 in the NIV teaches!!! This false doctrine is rooted in self-righteousness, as is Catholicism; whereas Christianity is rooted in Christ's righteousness. Amen! The Catholic religion teaches that a person must have faith AND WORKS to get to Heaven. This is exactly what Lordship Salvation teaches as well, i.e., that faith alone in Christ is not enough. It is Satan's lie.

Churches all across the world are teaching that faith AND WORKS are required for salvation. That is what Lordship Salvation requires... WORKS!!!

An Unholy AllianceLordship Salvation is the consequential result of ecumenicals rubbing shoulders in an unholy alliance with Roman Catholics. As mentioned earlier, ecumenicals are unbelievers who falsely profess to be Christians, and work to unite the Catholic religion with genuine Biblical Christianity, which is impossible. It is called Ecumenism. Their followers are known as the Ecumenical Movement. Ecumenicalism is easily summed up as “sinful compromise.” In 2nd Corinthians 6:17 God commands believers . . . “Wherefore come out from among them, and BE YE SEPARATE, saith the Lord.”

The NIV was birthed out of ecumenical compromise. The publishers of the NIV wanted to make money, so they watered-down the holy Scriptures until all the participating religious denominations were satisfied. The end result is a worthless manuscript that removes the name above every other name, Jesus, in 38-places. Why would anyone use the NIV?

But even more sinister is that the NIV is a Trojan Horse, deceitfully sneaking the damnable heresy of Works Salvation into churches who sincerely think they're getting a better Bible. While Christians are sleeping in the Church, the enemies of the cross of Christ have invaded the world's churches with Lordship Salvation, which is NO salvation at all. It is a road to Hell. It robs Christ of His work of redemption as the Savior of the world. If a sinner's salvation is dependent upon his willingness to stop living in sin, then where does Christ's righteousness come into play?

The manmade traditions of Catholicism are diametrically opposed to the Bible. There is no agreement. As 2nd Corinthians 6:14 asks, “What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?” Only evil people try to unite Catholicism with Biblical Christianity. One of the biggest sins of our time is that most Christians fail to expose the evil Catholic religion, which is leading over one billion people into the Lake of Fire. So hear me out... the heresy of Lordship Salvation is akin to the faith and works philosophy of the damnable Catholic religion. As Lordship Salvation becomes more and more popular, so do the same apostate churches embrace the Catholic religion.

One thing that has always baffled me is why MOST pastors today use the NIV when they are fully aware that homosexuals were on the translating committee, including the Chairman of the Old Testament committee. The only answer is that those pastors DON'T truly love the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lordship Salvation is an ecumenicalist's dream come true, taught in the NIV. Churches all across the world are teaching that faith AND WORKS are required for salvation. That is what Lordship Salvation requires... WORKS!!!

May we be diligent in these woeful times of apostasy to contend for the Biblical faith. Salvation is simple — we are SINNERS and Jesus is the precious SAVIOR.

Big Pharma: Legal Drug Dealers

"Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans." From the back cover of Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher: God's Call to Loving Arms by Gwen Olsen


Ex-Pharma Sales Reps Speaks Out - Pharma Not in Business of Health, Healing, Cures, Wellness.

Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a pharmaceutical sales rep working for such healthcare giants as Johnson & Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Abbott Laboratories. She enjoyed a successful, fast-paced career until several conscious-altering experiences began awakening her to the dangers lurking in every American medicine cabinet. Her most poignant lessons, however, came as both victim and survivor of life-threatening adverse drug reactions. After leaving pharmaceutical sales in 2000, Gwen worked in the natural foods industry first as an Account Manager for Nature's Way, and then as a Regional Sales Manager for Gaia Herbs. She is currently a writer, speaker, and natural health consultant.

The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market!

Gwen Olsen learned firsthand the danger that lurks in every American's medicine cabinet, working in the pharmaceutical industry. But her most poignant education would come as a victim and, ultimately, as a survivor.

Crystal Cathedral Mega Church Files for Bankruptcy

AP – The Crystal Cathedral is seen on Monday, Oct. 18, 2010, in Garden Grove, Calif. 

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. – Crystal Cathedral, the megachurch birthplace of the televangelist show "Hour of Power," has filed for bankruptcy in Southern California after struggling to emerge from debt that exceeds $43 million. In addition to a $36 million mortgage, the Orange County-based church owes $7.5 million to several hundred vendors for services ranging from advertising to the use of live animals in Easter and Christmas services.

The church had been negotiating a repayment plan with vendors, but several filed lawsuits seeking quicker payment, which prompted a coalition formed by creditors to fall apart, church officials said. "Tough times never last, every storm comes to an end. Right now, people need to hear that message more than ever," Sheila Schuller Coleman, the Cathedral's senior pastor and daughter of the founder, told reporters Monday outside the worship hall. "Everybody is hurting today. We are no exception," she said.

The church, founded in the mid-1950s by the Rev. Robert H. Schuller Sr., has already ordered major layoffs, cut the number of stations airing the "Hour of Power" and sold property to stay afloat. In addition, the 10,000-member church canceled this year's "Glory of Easter" pageant, which attracts thousands of visitors and is a regional holiday staple. Vendors owed money by the church formed a committee in April and agreed to a moratorium to negotiate a repayment plan with the Crystal Cathedral.

Kristina Oliver, whose Hemet-based company provided live animals for the church's "Glory of Christmas" manger scene, said she doubts she will recover in full the $57,000 she is owed. "The church never made any kind of advancement that they wanted to pay their debt, that they were willing to try to make it happen and every time we tried they told us, 'You can't tell us how to run our business,'" Oliver said. "I'm upset because I have a 30-year relationship with them and you need to be up front, put all your cards on the table."

Crystal Cathedral was founded at a drive-in theater and attracted congregants with its sermons on the power of positive thinking. It features a soaring glass spire and is an architectural wonder and tourist destination. The "Hour of Power" telecast, filmed in the cathedral's main sanctuary, at one point attracted 1.3 million viewers in 156 countries. Church leaders said the telecast and Sunday services will continue while in bankruptcy.

Crystal Cathedral and other megachurches have suffered from the recession and reduced charitable giving. The church saw revenue drop roughly 30 percent in 2009 and simply couldn't slash expenses quickly enough to avoid accruing the debt, said Jim Penner, a church pastor and executive producer of the "Hour of Power." Penner said it became difficult to hold the vendors' committee together after several vendors filed lawsuits and obtained writs of attachment to try to collect their cash.

Now, the church is avoiding credit entirely and spends only the roughly $2 million it receives each month in donations and revenue, Penner said. The church still hopes to pay all of the vendors back in full, he said. "What we're doing now is we're trying to walk what we preach, we're paying cash for things as we go," he said.

"Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral is part of The Reformed Church in America (RCA) This is the oldest denomination in America and has it's roots in the Dutch Reformed Church. Robert Schuller has patterned his ministry after the teachings and self-based psychology of Norman Vincent Peale. Peale had pastored the Marble Collegiate Church, which is also a Reformed Church. Like Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Shuller is also a 33° Mason."

"Sometimes referred to as 'the evangelist without a gospel'. Known for his unorthodox and heretical, pseudo-Christian teachings. In Schuller's message, man, not Jesus, takes center stage. In violation of the Bible's teachings, and in a calculated departure from orthodox Christianity, Schuller is a religious pluralist. His views on this issue are considered heretical, because religious pluralism violates one of the central teachings of Christianity, namely that salvation is received only by accepting Jesus Christ."

October 24, 2010 'OH BROTHER' UPDATE

Crystal Cathedral founder asks for help


GARDEN GROVE – Speaking to Crystal Cathedral congregants for the first time Sunday after the megachurch filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, founder Robert H. Schuller sent out an emotional plea for help.

Sheila Schuller Coleman with her father Robert H. Schuller delivers her sermon on Sunday. "Do any of you feel that you're indebted to this man?" she asked during her sermon. Coleman now heads the Crystal Cathedral ministry that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Schuller, 84, talked about a tornado that flattened his father's cornfield and home in Iowa when he was a teenager. He said his father was the only farmer who rebuilt. "I learned from my father that tough times never last," Schuller bellowed, his voice echoing across the glass house. "Tough people do." SWchuller's voice choked up with emotion as he told worshippers that his church has faced several challenges over the last 60 years. "I need more help from you," he said. "If you are a tither, become a double-tither. If you are not a tither, become a tither. This ministry has earned your trust. This ministry has earned your help."

His daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman, who heads the ministry with her father, explained to congregants why the church is in debt and why they had to file for bankruptcy protection. "Our debt, including our $36-million mortgage, is close to $50 million," she said. The church, faced with mounting debt, has been selling off its assets and has also canceled its iconic "Glory of Christmas" and "Glory of Easter" pageants this year. The Cathedral has also been torn by internal strife since the founding pastor's son, Robert A. Schuller, quit as senior pastor after ideological differences with his father.

On Sunday, Coleman assured church members that with good, "Biblical" money management, they will be out of bankruptcy soon and start a new chapter. Coleman said she knew that some of the vendors are suffering because they did not get paid in time. But she told congregants that they cannot play favorites when it comes to which vendors they can pay first. "We have to pay all of them and we can't pay them all at once," she said. "So, we are coming up with a payment plan." Near the end of Coleman's message, church members gave Schuller a standing ovation.

Jean Hess, a 30-year member who is also a greeter at the church, said she was touched by Coleman's message Sunday morning. "Sheila is really trying hard and she is a good person,"Hess said. "But, I think, to get back to where it was, the church needs to look outside of the family to find a true leader." William DeVries was visiting the church with his family from Arkansas. "We've watched the "Hour of Power" for years," he said. "This is an inspirational church that has preached to people internationally. This is a tough situation for them. But I think they will survive." Doris Bailey, a five-year member, said she believes the leaders are sincere and confident that the church will weather this crisis. "Sheila spoke from her heart," she said. "I feel the church will be OK."

Connecting the Google and CIA Dots

Google's China Hypocrisy Ignores Deep CIA Connections
Jan 14, 2010 - 11:31 AM

By: Pravda

The western media is currently full of articles on Google's 'threat to quit China' over internet censorship issues, and the company's 'suspicion' that the Chinese government was behind attempts to 'break-in' to several Google email accounts used by 'Chinese dissidents'.

However, the media has almost completely failed to report that Google's surface concern over 'human rights' in China is belied by its their deep involvement with some of the worst human rights abuses on the planet:

Google is, in fact, is a key participant in U.S. military and CIA intelligence operations involving torture; subversion of foreign governments; illegal wars of aggression; and military occupations of countries which have never attacked the U.S. and which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

To begin with, Google is the supplier of the core search technology for 'Intellipedia, a highly-secured online system where 37,000 U.S. spies and related personnel share information and collaborate on their devious errands.

Agencies such as the so-called 'National Security Agency' have also purchased servers using Google-supplied search technology which processes information gathered by U.S. spies operating all over the planet.

In addition, Google is linked to the U.S. spy and military systems through its Google Earth software venture. The technology behind this software was originally developed by Keyhole Inc., a company funded by Q-Tel, a venture capital firm which is in turn openly funded and operated on behalf of the CIA.

Google acquired Keyhole Inc. in 2004. The same base technology is currently employed by U.S. military and intelligence systems in their quest, in their own words, for "full-spectrum dominance" of the planet.

Moreover, Googles' connection with the CIA and its venture capital firm extends to sharing at least one key member of personnel. In 2004, the Director of Technology Assessment at In-Q-Tel, Rob Painter, moved from his old job directly serving the CIA to become 'Senior Federal Manager' at Google.

As Robert Steele, a former CIA case officer has put it: Google is "in bed with" the CIA.

Googles Friends spy on millions of Internet Users

Given Google's supposed concern with 'break-in's to several of its email accounts, it's worth noting that Google's friends at In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the CIA, are now investing in Visible Technologies, a software firm specialized in 'monitoring social media'.

The 'Visible' technology can automatically examine more than a million discussions and posts on blogs, online forums, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, and so forth each day. The technology also 'scores' each online item, assigning it a positive, negative or mixed or neutral status, based on parameters and terms set by the technology operators. The information, thus boiled down, can then be more effectively scanned and read by human operators.

The CIA venture capitalists at In-Q-Tel say they will use the technology to monitor social media operating in other countries and give U.S. spies “early-warning detection on how issues are playing internationally,” according to spokesperson Donald Tighe. There is every possibility that the technology can also be used by the U.S. intelligence operatives to spy on domestic social movements and individuals inside the U.S.

Finally, there is a curious absence from the statements emanating from Google - and from U.S. media reports - of any substantive evidence linking the Chinese government with the alleged break-in attempts to several Google email accounts.

Words like 'sophisticated' and 'suspicion' have appeared in the media to suggest that the Chinese government is responsible for the break-ins. That may be so. But it is striking that the media has seemingly asked no questions as to what the evidence behind the 'suspicions' might be

It should be noted that the U.S. government and its intelligence agencies have a long history of rogue operations intended to discredit governments or social movements with whom they happen to disagree. To see how far this can go, one need only recall the sordid history of disinformation, lies, and deceit propagated by U.S. government and media to frighten people into supporting the Iraq war.

Whether the attacks on Google email originated from the Chinese government, or from elsewhere, one thing is clear: A company that supplies the CIA with key intelligence technology; supplies mapping software which can be used for barbarous wars of aggression and drone attacks which kill huge numbers of innocent civilians; and which in general is deeply intertwined with the CIA and the U.S. military machines, which spy on millions, the company cannot be motivated by real concern for the human rights and lives of the people in China.

Corporate mind games
More and more companies are mining data about their employees to predict how they’ll behave in the future

by Jason Kirby on Thursday, September 23, 2010 2:20pm

A few weeks ago it was revealed that Google and the CIA—two organizations whose job it is to know what’s going on in the present—are working together to learn what will happen in the future. Through their respective investment arms—Google Ventures and In-Q-Tel—the geeks and the spooks each took a stake in a little-known Cambridge, Mass., company called Recorded Future, which bills itself as “the world’s first temporal analytics engine.” By scanning websites, news stories, blogs and Twitter pages for links between individuals, groups and incidents in the past, the company says it can apply “temporal reasoning” to predict events that haven’t happened yet.

The company is at the forefront of a fast-growing field known as predictive analytics, which uses algorithms that detect patterns and connections in life that wouldn’t otherwise be found.

The concept of businesses harvesting the past to try to predict the future isn’t new. But what has changed is the tsunami of information that gets churned out every day, serving as the fuel for these mathematical soothsayers. And while examples of police and spies using such techniques grab most of the attention, a growing number of companies are applying predictive analytics to the workplace to figure out which employees are at risk of leaving, who will work the hardest, and who is worth hiring in the first place.

It’s easy to understand what drew the CIA to Recorded Future. The company has already had some success forecasting troubling events. This past March, Israel warned that Hezbollah had obtained long-range Scud-like missiles, something Recorded Future had found evidence for a month earlier. It’s not the only one delving into the field of predictive analytics. Police in Memphis, Tenn., are using IBM technology to prevent crime before it occurs by predicting when and where it will happen.

In the past, companies used the technology when doing market research and to gauge the credit-worthiness of individuals. But large firms are beginning to use historical data as a crystal ball within their human resources departments, says Atanu Basu, CEO of Data­Info­Com, a research-focused predictive analysis firm in Austin, Texas. “Every large company already has access to this tremendous amount of data on their employees,” he says. “That can be used to make predictions about who will be successful and who is going to leave.”

Last year Google said it had developed a predictive tool capable of warning managers which employees will quit. An executive boasted that Google’s algorithm was so powerful, it lets the company “get inside people’s heads even before they know they might leave.” The U.S. Army already uses the information it gathers from recruits to predict which job would suit them best. And according to a recent report in HR Magazine, some companies are crunching the numbers to even predict when employees will call in sick.

The fact is, workers today shed personal information like skin cells that employers can collect.

The Web pages we surf at work, the emails we send, the answers we give during annual reviews, even the patterns of our vacations are all potential indicators of our actions, say experts. And as we expose more of our personal lives to the world through Facebook and Twitter, that task is only made easier.

Of course, there are risks any time a company thinks it’s got the future figured out, says Tom Davenport, a professor at Babson College and an expert in the field of analytics. Consider the damage wrought by the credit crisis in 2008. Wall Street suddenly discovered that its predictive models about the future of the economy—which assumed house prices could never go down—were completely wrong. It can be the same with individual workers. “The best predictor of how you will behave in the future is how you behaved in the past, however human beings sometimes change,” he says. “The person who resigns may not be the person you predicted would resign at all.”

But as companies fill their vaults with information about their employees, don’t be surprised if one day your boss looks at you funny. He may know you’re about to look for a different job, even if you don’t.

When the 'Future' Invades Our Lives:
The CIA Funds 'Predictive Behavior' Start-Ups
by Tom Burghardt l
Oct 10, 2010

What do Google, the CIA and a host of so-called "predictive behavior" start-ups have in common? They're interested in you, or more specifically, whether your online interests--from Facebook to Twitter posts, and from Flickr photos to YouTube and blog entries--can be exploited by powerful computer algorithms and subsequently transformed into "actionable intelligence."
As they walked along the busy, yellow-lit tiers of offices, Anderton said: "You're acquainted with the theory of precrime, of course. I presume we can take that for granted." - Philip K. Dick, The Minority Report

And whether the knowledge gleaned from an IP address is geared towards selling useless junk or entering a name into a law enforcement database matters not a whit. It's all "just data" and "buzz" goes the mantra, along what little is left of our privacy and our rights.
Increasingly, secret state agencies ranging from the CIA to the National Security Agency are pouring millions of dollars into data-mining firms which claim they have a handle on who you are or what you might do in the future. And to top it off, the latest trend in weeding-out dissenters and nonconformists from the social landscape will soon be invading a workplace near you; in fact, it already has.

Welcome to the sinister world of "Precrime" where capitalist grifters, drug- and torture-tainted spy shops are all laboring mightily to stamp out every last vestige of free thought here in the heimat.

The CIA Enters the Frame

In July, security journalist Noah Shachtman revealed in Wired that "the investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time--and says it uses that information to predict the future."

Shachtman reported that the CIA's semi-private investment company, In-Q-Tel, and Google Ventures, the search giant's business division had partnered-up with a dodgy outfit called Recorded Future pouring, according to some estimates, $20 million dollars into the fledgling firm.

A blurb on In-Q-Tel's web site informs us that "Recorded Future extracts time and event information from the web. The company offers users new ways to analyze the past, present, and the predicted future."

Who those ubiquitous though nameless "users" are or what they might do with that information once they "extract" it from the web is left unsaid. However, judging from the interest that a CIA-connected entity has expressed in funding the company, privacy will not figure prominently in the "new ways" such tools will be used.

Wired reported that the company, founded by former Swedish Army Ranger Christopher Ahlberg, "scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents--both present and still-to-come."

"The cool thing is" Ahlberg said, "you can actually predict the curve, in many cases."

And as for the search giant's interest in "predicting the future" for the secret state, it wouldn't be the first time that Google Ventures sold equipment and expertise to America's shadow warriors.

While the firm may pride itself on the corporate slogan, "don't be evil," data is a valuable commodity. And where's there value, there's money to be made. Whether it comes in the form of "increasing share value" through the sale of private information to marketeers or state intelligence agencies eager to increase "situational awareness" of the "battlespace" is a matter of complete indifference to corporate bean counters.

After all, as Google CEO Eric Schmidt told CNBC last year, "if you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."

But that standard, "only bad people have something to hide," is infinitely mutable and can be stretched--or manipulated as has so often been the case in the United States--to encompass everything from "Papist" conspiracies, "illegal" migrants, homosexuality, communism, drug use, or America's latest bĂȘte noire: the "Muslim threat."

Schmidt went on to say that "the reality is that search engines, including Google, do retain this information for some time. And we're all subject, in the U.S., to the Patriot Act, and it is possible that that information could be made available to the authorities."

In February, The Washington Post reported that "the world's largest Internet search company and the world's most powerful electronic surveillance organization are teaming up in the name of cybersecurity."

"The alliance" between Google and NSA "is being designed to allow the two organizations to share critical information without violating Google's policies or laws that protect the privacy of Americans' online communications," the Post alleged.

An anonymous source told the Post that "the deal does not mean the NSA will be viewing users' searches or e-mail accounts or that Google will be sharing proprietary data."


Last spring it was revealed that Google's Street View cars had been secretly vacuuming up terabytes of private wi-fi data for more than three years across Europe and the United States.

The Sunday Times reported that the firm had "been scooping up snippets of people's online activities broadcast over unprotected home and business wi-fi networks."

In July, The Washington Post's "Top Secret America" investigation disclosed that Google supplies mapping and search products to the U.S. secret state and that their employees, outsourced intelligence contractors for the Defense Department, may have filched their customers' wi-fi data as part of an NSA surveillance project.

And what about email and web searches? Last year, The New York Times revealed that NSA intercepts of "private telephone calls and e-mail messages of Americans are broader than previously acknowledged." In fact, a former NSA analyst described how he was trained-up fierce in 2005 "for a program in which the agency routinely examined large volumes of Americans' e-mail messages without court warrants."

That program, code-named PINWALE, and the NSA's meta-data-mining spy op STELLAR WIND, continue under Obama. Indeed, The Atlantic told us at the time that PINWALE "is actually an unclassified proprietary term used to refer to advanced data-mining software that the government uses."

But the seamless relationships amongst communications' giants such as Google and the secret state doesn't stop there.

Even before Google sought an assist from the National Security Agency to secure its networks after an alleged breech by China last year, in 2004 the firm had acquired Keyhole, Inc., an In-Q-Tel funded start-up that developed 3-D-spy-in-the-sky images; Keyhole became the backbone for what later evolved into Google Earth.

At the time of their initial investment, In-Q-Tel said that Keyhole's "strategic relationship ... means that the Intelligence Community can now benefit from the massive scalability and high performance of the Keyhole enterprise solution."

In-Q-Tel's then-CEO, Gilman Louie, said that spy shop venture capitalists invested in the firm "because it offers government and commercial users a new capability to radically enhance critical decision making. Through its ability to stream very large geospatial datasets over the Internet and private networks, Keyhole has created an entirely new way to interact with earth imagery and feature data."

Or, as seen on a daily basis in the AfPak "theatre" deliver exciting new ways to kill people. Now that's innovation!

That was then, now the search giant and the CIA's investment arm are banking on products that will take privacy intrusions to a whole new level.

A promotional offering by the up-and-comers in the predictive behavior marketplace, Recorded Future--A White Paper on Temporal Analytics asserts that "unlike traditional search engines which focus on text retrieval and leaves the analysis to the user, we strive to provide tools which assist in identifying and understanding historical developments, and which can also help formulate hypotheses about and give clues to likely future events. We have decided on the term 'temporal analytics' to describe the time oriented analysis tasks supported by our systems."

Big in the hyperbole department, Recorded Future claims to have developed an "analytics engine, which goes beyond search, explicit link analysis and adds implicit link analysis, by looking at the 'invisible links' between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events. We do this by separating the documents and their content from what they talk about."

According to the would-be Big Brother enablers, "Recorded Future also analyzes the 'time and space dimension' of documents--references to when and where an event has taken place, or even when and where it will take place--since many documents actually refer to events expected to take place in the future."

Adding to the unadulterated creep factor, the technocratic grifters aver they're "adding more components, e.g. sentiment analyses, which determine what attitude an author has towards his/her topic, and how strong that attitude is--the affective state of the author."

Strongly oppose America's imperial project to steal other people's resources in Afghanistan and Iraq, or, crime of crimes, have the temerity to write or organize against it? Step right this way, Recorded Future has their eye on you and will sell that information to the highest bidder!

After all, as Mike Van Winkle, a California Anti-Terrorism Information Center shill infamously told the Oakland Tribune back in 2003 after Oakland cops wounded scores of peacenik longshoremen at an antiwar rally at the port: "You can make an easy kind of a link that, if you have a protest group protesting a war where the cause that's being fought against is international terrorism, you might have terrorism at that (protest). You can almost argue that a protest against that is a terrorist act."

And with Recorded Future's "sentiment analyses" such "links" will be even easier to fabricate.

Never mind that the prestigious National Academy of Science's National Research Council issued a scathing 2008 report, Protecting Individual Privacy in the Struggle Against Terrorists: A Framework for Assessment, that debunked the utility of data-ming and link analysis as effective counterterrorism tools.

"Far more problematic," the NRC informs us, "are automated data-mining techniques that search databases for unusual patterns of activity not already known to be associated with terrorists." Since "so little is known about what patterns indicate terrorist activity" the report avers, dodgy techniques such as link analysis "are likely to generate huge numbers of false leads."

As for Recorded Future's over-hyped "sentiment analyses," the NRC debunked, one might even say preemptively, the dodgy claims of our would-be precrime mavens. "The committee also examined behavioral surveillance techniques, which try to identify terrorists by observing behavior or measuring physiological states."

Their conclusion? "There is no scientific consensus on whether these techniques are ready for use at all in counterterrorism." Damningly, the NRC asserted that such techniques "have enormous potential for privacy violations because they will inevitably force targeted individuals to explain and justify their mental and emotional states."

Not that such inconvenient facts matter to Recorded Future or their paymasters in the so-called intelligence community who after all, are in the driver's seat when the firm's knowledge products "make predictions about the future."

After all, as Ahlberg and his merry band of privacy invaders inform us: "Our mission is not to help our customers find documents, but to enable them to understand what is happening in the world."

The better to get a leg up on the competition or know who to target.

The "Real You"

Not to be outdone by black world spy agencies, their outsourced corporate partners or the futurist gurus who do their bidding, the high-tech publication Datamation, told us last month that the precrime concept "is coming very soon to the world of Human Resources (HR) and employee management."

Reporter Mike Elgan revealed that a "Santa Barbara, Calif., startup called Social Intelligence data-mines the social networks to help companies decide if they really want to hire you."

Elgan averred that while background checks have historically searched for evidence of criminal behavior on the part of prospective employees, "Social Intelligence is the first company that I'm aware of that systematically trolls social networks for evidence of bad character."

Similar to Recorded Future and dozens of other "predictive behavior" companies such as Attensity and Visible Technologies, Social Intelligence deploys "automation software that slogs through Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, LinkedIn, blogs, and 'thousands of other sources,' the company develops a report on the 'real you'--not the carefully crafted you in your resume."

According to Datamation, "the company also offers a separate Social Intelligence Monitoring service to watch the personal activity of existing employees on an ongoing basis." Such intrusive monitoring transforms the "workplace" into a 24/7 Orwellian panopticon from which there is no hope of escape.

The service is sold as an exemplary means to "enforce company social media policies." However, since "criteria are company-defined, it's not clear whether it's possible to monitor personal activity." Fear not, it is.

Social Intelligence, according to Elgan, "provides reporting that deemphasizes specific actions and emphasizes character. It's less about 'what did the employee do' and more about 'what kind of person is this employee?'"

In other words, it's all about the future; specifically, the grim world order that fear-mongering corporations are rapidly bringing to fruition.

Datamation reports that "following the current trend lines," rooted in the flawed logic of information derived from data-mining and link analysis, "social networking spiders and predictive analytics engines will be working night and day scanning the Internet and using that data to predict what every employee is likely to do in the future. This capability will simply be baked right in to HR software suites."

As with other aspects of daily life in post-constitutional America, executive decisions, ranging from whether or not to hire or fire someone, cast them into a lawless gulag without trial, or even kill them solely on the say-so of our War-Criminal-in-Chief, are the new house rules.

Like our faux progressive president, some HR bureaucrat will act as judge, jury and executioner, making decisions that can--and have--wrecked lives.

Elgan tells us that unlike a criminal proceeding where you stand before the law accused of wrongdoing and get to face your accuser, "you can't legally be thrown in jail for bad character, poor judgment, or expectations of what you might do in the future. You have to actually break the law, and they have to prove it."

"Personnel actions aren't anything like this." You aren't afforded the means to "face your accuser." In fact, based on whether or not you sucked-up to the boss, pissed-off some corporate toady, or moved into the "suspect" category based on an algorithm, you don't have to actually violate comapny rules in order to be fired "and they don't have to prove it."

Datamation tells us, "if the social network scanning, predictive analytics software of the future decides that you are going to do something in future that's inconsistent with the company's interests, you're fired."

And, Elgan avers, now that "the tools are becoming monstrously sophisticated, efficient, powerful, far-reaching and invasive," the precrime "concept is coming to HR."

Big Brother is only a "ping" or mouse click away...

"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment."
Matthew 12:36

"Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Scientology's Super Secret

QUOTE from Hollywood, Satanism, Scientology and Suicide

"At the very center of these 'Fishman affidavit' copyright infringement raids is a super secret, (highly disavowed by Scientology) document called OT 8. In the OT 8 document which defectors claim to be authored by Scientology's deceased founder, L Ron Hubbard, the highest initiates of Scientology are instructed by Hubbard that Hubbard really is Lucifer the Antichrist. In this document Hubbard goes on to declare to Scientology's highest initiates that Lucifer has really been unfairly maligned by Christian churches and it is really Christ who is the evil and Lucifer who is good. Hubbard then goes on to say that Christ was really a pedophile and child molester and that Hubbard will soon return to human form from the afterlife as a powerful politician to lead the world into a new era."

QUOTE by L. Ron Hubbard Jr. (Ron DeWolf) in his 1983 interview with Penthouse Magazine:

"I believed in Satanism. There was no other religion in the house! Scientology and black magic. What a lot of people don't realize is that Scientology is black magic that is just spread out over a long time period. To perform black magic generally takes a few hours or, at most, a few weeks. But in Scientology it's stretched out over a lifetime, and so you don't see it. Black magic is the inner core of Scientology --and it is probably the only part of Scientology that really works. Also, you've got to realize that my father did not worship Satan. He thought he was Satan. He was one with Satan."

Let No Man Deceive You

This article caught my eye because many years ago, my high school class president was convicted of doing something very similar and stole a lot of money from supposedly close friends.

I know the press likes to try folks in the media rather than wait until all the evidence is given in court, but if the following is true, this is quite tragic and is a heads-up to the rest of us.

Church financier faces Ponzi scheme trial in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Karen and Fred Lamb tried to do their homework before investing their savings in an Indiana company’s fund to help churches build or expand. After talking with church friends and checking out Alanar Inc. on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website, they decided the firm’s goals and beliefs meshed with their own.

“It was a good place where Christians would be investing in the work of other Christians,” said Karen Lamb, a 55-year-old Terre Haute housewife.

More than five years later, the Lambs still are waiting to get most of their $53,000 investment back. Now a former pastor is going on trial for what authorities call a multimillion-dollar scheme that preyed on thousands of parishioners who thought they were helping build churches but were actually buying the man and his sons planes and sports cars.

Vaughn Reeves, 66, faces 10 counts of securities fraud. Jury selection was to begin Tuesday in Princeton, Ind., about 25 miles north of Evansville.

Authorities say Reeves, founder and owner of now-defunct Alanar, and his three sons duped about 11,000 investors into buying bonds worth $120 million secured by mortgages on construction projects at about 150 churches. The men diverted money from new investments to pay off previous investors, pocketing $6 million and buying two airplanes, sports cars and vacations, according to court records.

Officials say the scheme operated mainly in Indiana, though church members in other states, including Florida, Michigan, Maryland and Oklahoma, also were victimized.

All four men have pleaded not guilty. An attorney for Vaughn Reeves did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Experts say the Alanar case is a prime example of affinity fraud, in which scammers prey on people who share a common interest, such as religious affiliation, ethnicity or even age.

The SEC doesn’t track cases of affinity fraud separately, but Lori Schock, director of the agency’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, estimates investors have lost hundreds of millions of dollars to such schemes in the last two years. Many victims never report the crimes because they are ashamed to tell authorities they’ve been duped, Schock said.

A warning on the SEC website says schemes have targeted retirees, blacks, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Armenian-Americans. Schock said recent schemes have gone after bus drivers in California, Latin Americans in Miami and Mormons in Utah.

Investigators say Reeves and his sons assembled teams of church members to sell bonds to other church members, urging them to fulfill their “Christian responsibility” by supporting church construction projects during the early part of the decade. The teams were given training materials that instructed them to open sales calls with a prayer and to quote scripture.

“Never sell the facts, sell warm stewardship and the Lord,” urged materials quoted in court documents.
Five years after a federal judge froze Alanar’s assets, Bradley Skolnik, the Indianapolis attorney who has served as Alanar’s court-appointed receiver since 2005, has repaid about $35 million to investors who lost nearly four times that. He expects another payout of about $10 million late this year or early next.

The money, he said, comes from about 150 churches across the country that issued the bonds. Some were able to pay off their debt, but Skolnik said about 20 percent were in default. About eight churches face foreclosure proceedings and likely will lose their buildings, he said. Skolnik said that in some cases, Alanar had never determined whether the churches could afford to issue bonds on their projects.

The Lambs, who invested about $53,000 from inheritance money and their two sons’ trust funds, have gotten back just $6,000.

“We wanted to invest in something honest, and doing the Lord’s work — and that just sucked us right in,” said Karen Lamb, whose 57-year-old husband works as a millwright.

Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita, whose office led an effort to toughen criminal penalties for affinity fraud last year, said people need to verify that they are investing in legitimate enterprises before handing over cash.

“The point isn’t to make everyone distrust their friends and loved ones or be afraid of their own shadow, but to reinforce the fundamentals of sound investing,” he said.

The SEC’s Schock said such due diligence can “protect these people from a lifetime of hardship.”
“Some of these people are too old to regain this money they’ve lost,” she said.

"Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Psalm 23 - Everyone Should Memorize This


[[A Psalm of David.]] The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

God's Promise Through His Son

What shall we then say to these things?

If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect?

[It is] God that justifieth.

Who [is] he that condemneth?

[It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

[shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Total Mind Control

Scroll down for updates

Q. Is Steven Hayes a Total Mind Controlled Programmed Multiple of the Illuminati?

Steven Hayes was found guilty of murdering a Connecticut doctor's wife and two daughters.
10/5/2010 Steven Hayes has been convicted of capital murder in connection with the brutal 2007 slaughters of a Connecticut nurse and her two daughters.

Quotes from 1998 Interview with Fritz Springmeier:

"The phrase that I like to use is 'Total Mind Control' because it totally controls the person - body, soul and spirit. And the common person out there has never really imagined that something so all-encompassing or so horrendous or so totally powerful even exists. The type of mind control the Illuminati use - I think some people think 'oh, mind control - television - yeah - subliminals.' No. I am talking about something that is 1000 or 10,000 times more powerful. This mind control is totally undetectable and it totally controls the person and it uses every known technique of controlling a person wrapped up in a sophisticated group package. That's one of the important things that a lot of people have not emphasized - that it's not one technique, but what makes this total mind control of the Illuminati so powerful is that it's a sophisticated group package incorporating all of the known techniques of control. All of these methods have been carefully interwoven. When you listen to someone from an intelligence agency, occasionally they have talked similar to this, where they will say, 'we tried such and such a technique but it only worked in 70% of the cases so we couldn't use it ... and we tried this technique and it only worked part of the time.' But what they are not telling you is that if you take a method that works only 70% of the time and match that to another technique that works 60% of the time, and another technique that works 50% of the time and you have 100 techniques wrapped up together like that, you make a package deal that totally locks the victim in to the control."

"If you are going to invest the time to create a robot, you are going to incorporate as many capabilities as possible and you want to compartmentalize so everything is secret. One of the reasons why intelligence agencies function so well - eg. CIA - is that they compartmentalize everything. You only 'know' on a regional basis. They do the same with these people's minds. A slave may function on many different levels. He's got his front - they create the best front possible - his or her everyday life - but then they may want to use that person for drug smuggling, money laundering, carrying messages, performing satanic rituals, producing porn movies, assassinating somebody, spying on somebody - and then you've got internal jobs too. Going back to what I said earlier, remembering how the mind has been fractured into many dissociated pieces, and essentially a whole city of people has been made out of those pieces. In order for that city of people to function, you have to have different jobs. You will have some of the older personalities taking care of baby personalities internally in the person's mind - you have functions - gatekeepers, hierarchy alters that are controlling other alters - a hierarchy of personalities. That's a whole science in itself - how to structure dissociated parts of the mind."

"Something that was developed and used during the space program which is called biomedical telemetry - these are transmitters and receivers located at the base of the skull which record the body functions and the brain waves, and send it back to some computer somewhere. In fact in working with victims of electronic mind control I can say with certainty that is what is being done is that there are computers that are programmed with artificial intelligence that are their handlers. Rather than having a human handler day in and out, three shifts of human handlers controlling the victim of electronic mind control, they have computers with A.I. Then if the victim does something that throws the computer, the computer will signal a human to come and get involved. It's been kind of interesting, the stories that victims have told me about how they outsmarted the computers that were trying to handle them."

"Bob Hope was an intelligence operative for British Intelligence. He was used in the USO a lot. The USO created at least 200 bands. A lot of the bands we know of now Guy Lombardo, Lawrence Welk, Sam Donahue - these were all created in the USO program. When the USO program ceased at the end of WWII, you had this whole music industry that was basically created by the Intelligence organizations, and it was heavily salted with their intelligence operatives. It was a natural thing for the CIA - created out of the OSS - and the NSA to continue to use the music industry as it had been used in WWII for intelligence purposes. Our entire music industry here in the USA is actually an intelligence front for the Illuminati."

"For instance, in Australia - where this madman went in and he gunned down a lot of innocent people - children and families - boy - right after that they ramrodded through gun legislation and approximately half a million weapons were turned in without a fight by the Australians because of this horrendous massacre that took place. The same things are going to happen in this country and on this surface it's going to appear like this is just a madman who flipped out and he gunned down a lot of people. But from 'their' vantage-point, they have spent a lot of years planning and programming."

Christopher David Amyx

Murder charge filed in death of Havelock man
October 07, 2010 4:14 PM
Drew C. Wilson

Elizabeth City police charged a 23-year-old man with first degree murder Wednesday in the shooting death of a Havelock man. Jonathan Schipper, a sophomore at Mid-Atlantic Christian University in Elizabeth City, was shot to death Sunday shortly before 1 p.m. in a dorm room at the campus. According to Elizabeth City Police Detective Jerry Boyce, Christopher David Amyx was charged Wednesday afternoon with first degree murder. Amyx, who was also a student at the university, was being held without bail.

Amyx was a part-time police officer with the city of Pinetops while attending the university, according to a release from Elizabeth City police on Monday. Police found Schipper, a 2004 graduate of Gramercy Christian School in Newport and a 2009 graduate of Craven Community College, dead in a dormitory room at Pearl A. Presley Hall. Amyx was founded seated on the floor at the dorm hall at the scene of the shooting, police said. Schipper and Amyx were not roommates at the dormitory, Boyce said.

According to a sworn statement on a search warrant from Elizabeth City police detective M.J. Chivers, Elizabeth City police officer D. Harris observed Amyx at the scene with a gun on the floor shortly after the shooting. Harris “found Christopher David Amyx in the hallway of the dorm with a semi-automatic weapon gun on the floor. The clip had been removed from the weapon and there was also a black pocket knife on the floor as well.” “Mr. Amyx had told another student at the college that he had shot the victim,” the statement said. “Detective Boyce advised that Mr. Amyx had been receiving numerous threats from unidentified sources prior to the deceased being found in his room on this date,” according to the statement.

“The victim was found deceased in Mr. Amyx’s dorm room with an apparent gunshot wound to the head,” the statement said. “Mr. Amyx spoke with detective Boyce and advised that he had shot the victim, but had done so in self defense,” according to the statement. Investigators initiated a search of a safe at the university dorm used by Amyx in which several items were seized, including a .45 caliber handgun with a loaded magazine, a fully loaded spare magazine, a box of .45 caliber ammunition, a set of keys, a handwritten will, and three prescription medicine bottles. Police also executed a search warrant of Amyx’s room, in which were found a 9 mm handgun, a .38 caliber revolver, a .40 caliber handgun, two boxes of .40 caliber bullets, a half box of .45 caliber bullets, two spare loaded .45 caliber magazines and other items. It is against university policy to possess firearms on campus.

Schipper had been enrolled in the university studying in the Youth and Families Studies program. An autopsy was conducted on Tuesday of Schipper’s remains at the office of the State Medical Examiner in Greenville. A memorial service for Schipper was conducted at the university on Monday. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

October 11, 2010 UPDATE
"Such a nice boy. His mother said, 'he was such a nice boy, he never caused any trouble'.  Until he walked into a fast food restaurant, pulled out a gun, and started shooting everyone in sight.  Sadly, he also shot himself, so now we'll never know why he committed such a shocking criminal act.  Sound familiar?  Of course it does.  These days, it happens with depressing regularity.  Then there was the Texas mother who drowned her children in the bathtub.  She said, 'the voice of god told me to do it'.
Psychologists tell us these seemingly random acts of violence result from economic pressures and breakdowns in inter-personal relationships, caused by the stress of modern society.  I contend what we are witnessing in these wonton acts of violence, is nothing less than experimental tests of remote mind control, accomplished using the Cell Phone BTS sites to inject post hypnotic commands directly into the human mind."

A Young Man's Testimony

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
Colossians 2:8

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
