 Forum: Contradictions   Topic: 'Other Sheep' are the lost sheep of Israel?

Posted: 11 Jul 2018, 02:35

Often to prove that believers who no longer believe 'unbelieving believers', that they are still saved, is Christ's statement that the "other sheep", them he must bring:
John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
John 10:16 καὶ ἄλλα πρόβατα ἔχω ἃ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τῆς αὐλῆς ταύτης· κἀκεῖνα δεῖ με ἀγαγεῖν καὶ τῆς φωνῆς μου ἀκούσουσιν, καὶ γενήσονται μία ποίμνη, εἷς ποιμήν.
The "other sheep" are believed to be the Gentiles who would believe.

John 12:32

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men (not just Jews) unto me.
Well then by that logic, we would ALL be classified as 'other sheep'. It doesn't make sense because you still need to believe to be a sheep:
John 10:26  But you BELIEVE NOT, because you are not of my sheep, as I said to you. 

Through that period of unbelief, you're not a sheep.

I dont know anything about computers. What I want is to use my computer without anyone spying, or imposing anything, like the updates to make windows 7 more like windows 10 (having looked around it doesnt seem entirely clear if windows 7 originally "phoned home". does it?). Will installing windows 7 in a "virtual box" do this for me? Will I be able to use my computer as if it is a normal installation?

sorry if im being stupid. thank you for your help

forgot my password so I had to register a new account
Windows 7 with the latest updates does in fact install the 'back ported' windows 10 telemetry, so that has to manually be removed after you update windows 7 to its latest.

Windows 7 'phones home' for a lot of things so you would have to clarify if the concern is just telemetry or phoning home at all, including clock synchronization and licensing. You would have to switch to local VLSC KMS licensing and spin up your own licensing server--otherwise Windows 7 will always periodically phone phone with a MAK license.

It is possible to get a near-similar experienced in Wnidows 10 like Windows 7 using Wnidows 10 LTSB Enterprise, but it still requires some modifications. Of course Microsoft made getting a valid license extremely difficult as they DO NOT want people running it.

Interesting documentary:
(actually goes into great detail as to HOW Putin got the experience he needed to control all levels of govenrment). Also points out of the STATE-controlled media, which is why things on RT often promote misinformation and diversions that Putin crafts. Here's a great example of when Putin tells us on RT 'who exactly created ISIS', and of course Putin says it's the States:

One of the lady's involved in American-Russian relations (Karen Dawisha) also in that BBC documentary, wrote a very interesting book on the subject: ... 1476795207

It can be assumed Putin's net worth is anywhere between 40 and 100 Billion dollars. Making him one of, if not, the richest men around.

Like Trump, Putin is only concerned with self-preservation and self-wealth.

Would that be due to Win8 being less graphic-intensive?
When Windows 7 is ran with the 'classic theme' it disables WDM disabling V-Sync, which leads to a performance drop, graphically. As Windows 8 and beyond don't support the classic theme, my guess would be users are forced to use WDM and thus perceive better performance. Otherwise, Windows 7 will outperform 8 and 10.

Duma in Russia said the same thing back in 2015. Do you know of any news after that, or other countries?
Microsoft pays Ed Bott (who does actually work directly for Microsoft) and other news outlets to DELIBERATELY spread misinformation--it's well known Windows 10 breaches privacy and security principles for governments, banks, medical, nuclear etc.

In fact, Microsoft had no choice but to create a special version of Windows 10 that is missing a lot of the telemetry: ... t-edition/

This, too is well known but often ignored. IF MICROSOFT had to make a special version for China--why would that be?! Oh... because what the Dutch government (and many others!) have been saying, is true.

It gets even more involved because Microsoft changed the way telemetry behaves when they had to disclose what it did during the investigation by the European Union; to 'tame' it a bit. They were most assuredly harvesting more data prior to the disclose of the -later- releases of Windows 10. Because it's 'software as a service' they can play little games where it changes what Windows 10 collects, at different points.

Anyways... I have proof Ed Bott actually contradicts his public misinformation with some of the PDFs he produced -for- microsoft -hosted at Microsoft-, I can't remember which one it was specifically, but they're all available publicly: ... 10_PDF.PDF ... MOBILE.PDF ... e-Only.pdf ... ew_PDF.pdf

Awhile back I watched John McCain ramble on a fair bit of nonsense as he struggled with understanding James Comey's responses in regards to the memos--but that was most likely because he was diagnosed with brain cancer shortly after. Of course you're going to be slightly incoherent, not to mention the guy is 80 years old.

After undergoing some treatment and an operation for the brain tumour, he leaves the hospital to go to the senate to cast his vote for repealing obamacare (huge scar above his left eye). Instead of saying 'yes' or 'no', he walked up being last, stuck a big thumbs down in front of Mitch McConnell and walked off.

That's from a guy whose been beaten to a pulp in Vietnam and now fighting a brain tumour, meanwhile Trump doesn't know the definition of pain. Trump's now fuming that McCain vetoed the repeal.

I'm still focusing on some other doctrines at the moment so I won't be able to comment on this yet.

What I will say though is this:
Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Colossians 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
Obviously redeeming the time is the antithesis to those who have no doctrine and are lusting after Christ's return (which if I was a 0% believer, I'd want the OPPOSITE if I had any sense!).

Views: 8773

When I look around Christian internet communities (not here) I see many battering one another and putting each other's pet doctrines down and just being downright nasty and rude. I wonder how much that detracts unbelievers away from believing in Christ.For Jesus said in Jn. 13:34-35:
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
The biggest problem that Christians have is carnality:
Luke 15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
Either caused by not knowing 1 John 1:9, or having 'heard it' at some point but just never doing it. Or even worse, getting tripped up by something like the elder prodigal son and going into perpetual carnality which will lead to scar tissue on your soul's frontal lobe.

Going back:
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Unfortunately I still haven't found my BibleWorks, so I don't know what class condition ἐάν is there, but I have a GOOD FEELING it'll be third class. IF (third class) you love one another--maybe you will, and maybe you won't.

If as a Christian you're so far off that you're not even doing 1 John 1:9 or know about it, you're not even going to have the capacity to know doctrine, let alone have Christ's thinking so that 'all men' will know you're a Christian. In fact, due to the high rates of carnality, it effectively inverts John 13:35 to something like... "all men shall know you are carnal as a believer"--since you exhibit patterns and misery that are so extreme, an unbeliever cannot accomplish such feats. On the "plus side" the unbeliever may recognize something so horrible in the carnal unbeliever that they may have second thoughts that there's more at play than what meets the eye...

So not all Christians are going to follow through with 1 John 1:9 to get to a point of capacity for doctrine at John 13:34-35. Therefore being a believer never guarantees John 13:35. It's fascinating to see that hardly anyone does 1 John 1:9, even after you keep repeating it. This is a known phenomenon and the biggest problem of Phase 2 which is the believer in time learning Bible Doctrine.

Then let's say you have someone who refills themselves to death, they'll run into the next problem if they don't do faith-rest because they'll never be in any of the Wills of God nor will they be inclined to learn doctrine. You can't learn doctrine without faith-rest (Genesis 2:3).
It seems to me He could be coming back soon, but I could be wrong on that. I just don't see how we can continue on much longer on the track we are going on this planet. Things are way out of control and I am amazed that our country has not been totally destroyed.
At the present moment it would do no service to God (and as result us ourselves) if He pulled the plug:
Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
It's easy to be distracted by world events and think things have been worse than ever before--but some of the worst periods of history have been the Exodus generation and the Dark Ages. It's surprising time even continued past that.

Right now there's a lot of doctrine being resuscitated / and if I see it right, there may be a lot of 490 believers condensed in this period in a single chunk; God's planning for something rather huge. Which is impressive because you typically only ever have one for every 490. With the advent of computers and globalization, all of this has become almost effortless. So there's no better time to raise up some super-believers.

But what I'm wondering is... "why now", and "what does it mean for the future". Once everything is resuscitated and in the open ready to be deployed to the appropriate recipients it will be the most unique point in the Church Age dispensation.

Posted: 26 Jun 2017, 06:19 

Replies: 3

I couldn't figure a better topic to put this under, other than demonology. Why?
A) we'll see how the Internet Monk (Chaplain Mike & friends) is demonic on its assessment of R.B. Thieme
B) we'll see the doctrines that the Internet Monk fosters (my litmus is always whether or not someone can state salvation correctly--and that has NOTHING to do with Thieme--but the Word of God)
When Thieme became pastor of Berachah, he immediately dismissed the church board and inaugurated a heavy schedule of teaching services—four nights a week and twice on Sunday. His teaching ministry proliferated throughout the country and around the world through lectures, books, and tapes. At one point the ministry was reported to be sending out thirty thousand tapes per month. Those who have been connected with Thieme or influenced by his teaching include Hal Lindsey (he attended Thieme’s church and mentions RBT in The Late Great Planet Earth), Chuck Swindoll, and Dan and Marilyn Quayle.
Source: ... r-b-thieme

Okay... Thieme goes through why he dissolved the church board (and WHY a Church Board does NOT work; but I guess Chaplain Mike couldn't be bothered to listen to the reasons given and instead just throws it up as a negative). For crying out loud, it follows the same principle as having too many cooks in the kitchen, someone has to have control and lead. It's not that hard to grasp! Not to mention the church board probably couldn't stomach SAVED ONLY BY BELIEF, PERMANENTLY. But apparently Chaplain Mike LUSTS after ecumenicalism and disregards the hierarchy of businesses, governments, military and ultimately the royal priesthood...

Next up Chaplain Mike makes it a 'bad thing' that R.B. Thieme started a weekly study class (Chapstick Mike calls it a regime). First of all, it was NOT mandatory to attend every class weekly, and as a pastor-teacher it was HIS JOB. Full time Christian service. And many people didn't even know that he did weekly classes... because most lazy pastors (who aren't even ordained by God) whip out a weak sermon about on Sunday with ushy-gushy "let's all do human works" and call it quits for the rest of the week.
By most reports, Bob Thieme was idiosyncratic, pedantic, authoritarian, provocative, prolific, reclusive, and condescending.
Many of his teachings are downright looney and some so convoluted that even the diagrams he used to visualize them look like advanced mathematical formulae (see below).
He may be understood as a product of dispensational methodology gone to seed, military style discipline and organization, Cold War sensibilities, and a kind of intellectual hubris by which one creates his own system and then sets himself up as the only expert over it.
Source: ... r-b-thieme

Thieme never forced ANYONE to stay around in the Church if they didn't like it. The reason why Thieme was tough is because the point of being in Bible Class is to learn doctrine, not to socialize or groom your emotion.

The whole "Thieme's teachings are looney" has been perpetuated by a lot of people who never actually learned any of it to begin with and just got a sour taste in their mouth because they'd rather join an emotional religious Church rather than study God's Word. Plain and simple (and Thieme even himself mentions this over and over--heck, even in the first basics series). Even if Thieme's teachings were "loony", the accusations are coming from people who have loony beliefs themselves (like works salvation) along with a host of contradictions.

ALL OF IT can be observed in real life and tracked down to the original Greek and Hebrew / Aramaic... take the divine viewpoint and the human viewpoint. The whole reason why these people can't get salvation is because they're interpreting it based in the human viewpoint. The concept of 1 John 1:9... the old sin nature... it's all there out in the open. It just depends WHETHER OR NOT someone wants to 'see' it and go with God's Word.

I'll take one of Thieme's formulas over "let's all hold hands and jump up and down and sing everyone loves Jesus" any day of the week. Like... there's no point of THE BIBLE if you don't read it and actually digest all of the information in there verse by verse, word by word.

Sure... the reason why Thieme is "the only expert" is because of people exactly like Chapstick Mike who'd rather gush emotion behind a stained glass window rather than go through the original language text, carnality and ignoring 1 John 1:9 aside. You know... maybe if more people were willing to study (!) there could be better discourse regarding this. But no, Chaplain Mike throws 2 Timtohy 2:15 out of the window and would rather close his eyes as the Bible.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The emphasis of Thieme-style church is on (the pastor) teaching doctrine, period. I have always found the ethos as warm and hospitable as an windowless military office full of gray steel filing cabinets. Some have testified that the atmosphere at Berachah Church under Thieme was as controlling and manipulative as boot camp—break down the soldier’s personality and will, and force submission to the “army way.”
Oh... there we go with Chapstick Mike's EMOTION again... "oh it was likened to windowless military office...". Again, this can only be said from someone who is all emotion and zero Bible. Thieme repeatedly says, it's not the man, it's the message; hence the whole thing of marturomai in Ephesians 4:17, but that'll go over the head of Chaplain Mike.

I lean back in my comfortable leather chair, swing open my window to let the cool summer air and sun come in while I listen to Thieme on my monitor speakers. Ideally you want "right environment" to study to eliminate as much cognitive dissonance as possible.
When we first moved to the south side of Indianapolis, we noticed a “Bible Doctrine Church” near where we lived. It has always been small and has experienced problems; another congregation split off from it and became more mainstream non-denominational evangelical in its ministry. But it remains open.
You can still find these kinds of groups on the internet too, but as I looked through websites, I noticed that many of the churches no longer have pastors and that the people gather to watch videos of teachers from other locations. (One of Thieme’s teachings was that believers cannot grow by studying the Bible for themselves—they must have a “pastor-teacher” to instruct them).
This has nothing to do with Thieme really... there's going to be "Bible Doctrine" churches everywhere, and many of them will be mixed up. Probably moreso than orthodox churches (who barely open the Bible). For instance... when I was in mass MANY times, the priest would read a very short verse in the new testament, and then talk for an hour + about a personal story that 'sort of' related to the translated verse in question. No doctrine whatsoever. SO WHEN you have something that starts to deal with high-thinking biblical information, there's a lot more room for ERROR and instability. Hence... 1 John 1:9, Romans 8:28, 2 Timothy 2:15, Romans 4:5-6... etc...

Now onto the comments
Ugg. The church I grew up in completely worshiped him. It also ruined the lives of most of its congregation. That said, since I stopped going there before I reached junior high, I never really investigated Thieme so I’m not sure how many of my bad memories are from his method or simply from the individuals involved in that specific church.
UHHH HELLO!!! OF COURSE WORSHIPING YOUR PASTOR-TEACHER is going to ruin your life! This goes back to what I've been saying repeatedly, it's not the man, IT'S THE MESSAGE. People who become obsessed with the person instead of the Word of God, are going to be complete nutjobs. While it's true I happen to like Thieme's personality and his jokes that he constantly peppers throughout sermons, that has nothing to do with studying the Word of God and should NEVER be a focus when it comes to studying said Word.

And notice Marie says "I never really investigated Thieme", well there you go! And observing the effects of what happens after salvation when those people are carnal has NOTHING to do with Thieme. In fact, Thieme states quite explicitly what happens when you don't study the Bible and develop your OWN MISERY. So... it's quite expected for someone's life to be ruined when they get emotional and psychotic and start to worship the teacher and IGNORE the Word of God.

And here are a shower of knee-jerk reactions (negative out of the box) from Chapstick Mike's article where all of the people proclaim "oh I should be thankful I haven't heard of Thieme before". Give me a break. Does the Word of GOD scare them that much?
This is the first I’ve ever heard of the man. For which I should probably be thankful — he sounds like a bibliolatrous, militaristic Harold Camping, with a dash of shepherding movement thrown in for “flava.” And that diagram … “gobbledygook” seems inadequate. I look over this and I hear in my head the voice of Dr. Walter Martin saying “run, don’t walk, to the exit” …
Never heard of the man, and thank God for that. Had enough problems without ‘im.
This is the first I’ve heard of this guy and after the reading the post I think that is probably a good thing. I’ve probably run across a few who were influenced by him, though.
I never heard of this R.B. Thieme (thank you God) but he seemed to be selling the same old message of
fear, God-complex, & inerrancy. aka fundementalism!
There's something important to note.. and that is, nobody has actually 'tested' to see what Thieme preaches is correct or not. They just make assumptions and already have a pre-existing problem of being religious; which means they'd have to rehabilitate their thinking by UNLEARNING so much false doctrine.

And here we have a good case of someone who just would never 'get it' with the Word of God:
After seeing that diagram, I can tell I would want to know no more about this man’s teachings.
Joanie is the kind of person who is fine with orthodox churchianity and religion. Having been in Catholicism for a better portion of my early life... I can spot those kind of religious zombies from a mile away.
Yes, the abortion thing was a surprise to me. It grows out of his “rightly dividing” approach. Biological life should be distinguished from soul life, which in Thieme’s view is given by God in a baby’s first breath. Therefore abortion is only disposing of biological matter, not a human being.
Oh well that shows Chaplain Mike's true colours (if THAT surprises him, wait until he discovers permanent salvation through only belief). Soul is imputed after first breath. Full stop. It's in the Hebrew but those kind of people just couldn't be bothered to 'get it', stuck in the human viewpoint. THINK: why would God impute a soul to something that's not human? IS GOD GOING TO IMPUTE A SOUL INTO A FREAKING SPERM? And the fact the baby needs to take a BREATH to have soul imputed, is analogous to many other doctrines like 1 John 1:9 (spiritually breathing). So... you can only lie to yourself about soul imputation before you contradict a huge portion of the Word.
If you google RBThiemeJr files.pdf, you will find pretty much all you need to know about his history and effect. Reading about people offering his “free” material (as if this is a good thing), it simply boils down to that no one outside his group would publish it i.e. the material is worth buying, and secondly that the Master wants his ideas to be distributed as far and wide as possible. Including long after his death.
Okay buddy... for starters Thieme himself states that God provided money for the ministry in the most surprising ways. IF GOD wants you as a pastor HE PROVIDES. End of story. You often see a lot of mixed-up struggling churches entrenched in religion because they just can't figure out the Bible and never bother to read it. Or go completely insane.

Material is free because some people who need doctrine can't afford it, and because JESUS CHRIST SAYS SO. It has nothing to do with a master complex. Not to mention, Thieme's goal was never get rich or money, duh.

Onto the other content of the Internet Monk to get a better idea of what these people believe (although we have a pretty good idea already)
As Christ-followers, we are defined by the Story of Jesus — his incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. As he triumphed, so we walk in his triumph. God works through us as we live cruciform lives. We are the suffering people of God, who bear in our bodies the dying of Jesus that the life of Jesus may be given to the world. This often looks like defeat. In Christ, it means ultimate triumph.
Source: ... -salvation
Look at that religious vomit. "we're the suffering people of God, wah wah wah wah". That's just mindless drivel. No... we're the royal believer priests studying and learning The Word to get Christ's thinking into our thinking...
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvellous light
Heck... the majority of these things are even translated in English plain as day.

Onto Chaplain Mike's bizarre salvation story and his mixup on the whole thing. AS could have been predicted, he's into works salvation. *surprise!*

I remember the day I changed my thinking about when I was “saved.” I had grown up in a mainline Protestant denomination, was baptized and confirmed, attended worship and Sunday School, and dabbled with youth group. However, in my teen years, I was not deeply involved.
In the midst of my wandering, God graciously brought me into contact with some fellow students who attended a local Baptist church. I saw a real difference in them, and their joy was attractive. I became part of the group, though I hesitated to come forward and confess my faith as a Christian. Eventually, however, I responded to an altar call, went forward and expressed my desire to be baptized as a new follower of Jesus. From that point on, through his gracious preserving power I have never turned back.
From the day I heard Joe’s story, I began to think about my “salvation” differently.
One weakness of the revivalist approach is that it separates a person’s life into two distinct periods, one “without God” and one “with God”. It cannot tolerate nuances in that black/white division. God’s work before that “day of salvation” is discounted, especially if “conversion” involves moving from one form of Christian faith to another, as happened with me.
This is one reason I identify myself as a “post-evangelical” today. American evangelicalism has its roots sunk deeply into the ethos of revivalism. It’s about preaching for decision. And it’s the decision that gets it done. In a moment.
In my humble opinion, it is God that gets it done, and his ways are not our ways.
Notice Mike keeps assuming "God brought me into this" "God did this" "God did that". It's a COMMON COMPLEX for the religious washed-up Christian to fixate and assume God does everything for every-day occurrences. "Oh hey, God helped me find my keys", uhhh no. YOU just simply found them and have hallucinated that God was somehow involved.

Then he gambles and states there is no single point that when "you're saved".
Romans 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness.
Looks pretty clear to me.

You'll also notice Mike doesn't list a single verse, it's just more verbal vomit as he gloats over his emotion, and then attributes everyday occurrences and hallucination as a product of God.

But for some atheists, the motive is more about proving “You don’t need God to be good” (as the bus adverts and billboards had it) than about doing good works; it’s to show “See? We don’t believe in God and we do nice things, too!” Now, any activity that is more about glorification of one’s self or for an ulterior motive is mistaken or worse, and this applies to the religious as well.
Source: ... -e-z-steps

So yeah... this actually proves the following:
#1 there is a separation of HUMAN WORKS and GOD'S WORKS (or human good and divine good)
#2 the "works" religious washed-up christian do are human works (human good)
#3 as a result of unbelievers being able to do good works, they cannot therefore have any effect on salvation
#4 as a result of the "good works" that unbelievers can do are the same ones mirrored by religious Christians, therefore these "good works" are NOT "divine works".

LD: One time experience or lifelong process? Yes, and no. I think that what we typically refer to as being saved is really being reconciled. A few years ago as I was meditating on Romans 5:10, I was struck that the Apostle Paul spoke of two different causes and two different effects. The causes were Christ’s death and Christ’s life with their effects being reconciliation and salvation respectively. “For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” What happened on August 25, 1975 on a boat at night in the middle of a lake, with my stepsister helping me along, is that I was made aware that the rift between God and me (due to my sinfulness) was reconciled by Christ’s death. That is the part of the salvation process on which I can pin a date.
Source: ... -salvation

That's just all over the place! Notice Lisa swaps out "saved" with a different word to edge in space to make it temporal. The human body always sins, and it's the MENTAL SINS that are the worst of any. But of course Lisa cannot help herself and implies overt sins. Typical.
Belief + 0 = salvation. Permanent. Forever.

If salvation was a process, Christ's death on the cross is useless, 1 John 1:9 is useless, and we'd need a "salvation meter" along with additional scripture to back up the concept of losing the holy spirit every time you somehow lose salvation, along with information on what happens when you keep on regaining salvation.

It's just a freaking mess, I don't know how anyone could confidently have a "salvation process" make sense in their mind without shattering the entire Bible and all of its doctrines.

Anyways... we can conclude from all of this, that the Internet Monk is your standard religious group who can't grasp even the basics in Bible 101. Just as I predicted, if you can't get salvation down right... you get almost everything else in the Bible wrong:
A) you risk of not being saved, for... if you don't believe WITHOUT anything else you can't be saved since you're no longer believing that Christ paid for your sins. If you're not saved you can't process the Bible correctly.
B) it's so fundamental in getting everything else correct (salvation + refilling of the holy spirit)

Just to chime in here, I find a lot of data collection on temperatures (even in my own location) are often DOCUMENTED very poorly as there are multiple sources. Some sources I've seen make the place where I live as being super hot... when that's not the case at all and there is other data to (rightly) contradict that.

Another issue is when people hallucinate about weather and temperature that's status quo. Because they in their subconscious "it's getting hotter" they react poorly to warm temperature that we have always been getting AND IGNORE the very cold portions of temperature. Which is actually detrimental if they're hypnotized thinking it's not getting cold or does get cold--as disregarding extreme cold temperatures is dangerous. It's no joke or fantasy, extreme cold and massive snowfall can kill you.

Most people wouldn't have been able to survive in some of the extreme cold weather I've walked for a few miles in.


That's my issue with Donald Trump. IF he does anything which IS correct (and controversial), he makes the truth look like a lie--and that gives less credibility to those who have valid reasons.

Microsoft has made so many changes to Windows 10 (in ALL versions) with the latest major updates that it's not longer an OS I can even consider using. It has far too many security vulnerabilities, too much Microsoft-malware, no way to turn off forced updates, etc.

No, I am more than 2/3rds through it. It is a huge book and I left it at home as I am now staying with my elderly Mom. Of what I read, I felt it brought glory to God and cast down the thoughts that we can merit salvation. Very scholarly with many footnotes.
It looks like David Reagan had a critical review of the book here:
However, Reagan's assumptions seem to be based around the fact that HE'S confused (I think):
Dillow is a Calvinist. In fact, he is really a hyper-Calvinist because he believes that even Calvin was not true to his fundamental propositions. Incredibly, he accuses Calvin of teaching salvation by works!
Okay... so, it appears that Reagan isn't familiar with the fact that the perseverance of the saints is not the same as the Bible's form of permanent salvation. Calvinists believe that one is "eternally secure" ONLY DUE TO THE FACT OF ELECTION AND NOTHING ELSE. So that is not a non-meritorious act, and they could care less about grace and Romans 4:5-6
But to him that DOES NO WORKS, but BELIEVES on Him that justifies the ungodly, his belief is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describes the blessedness of the man to who God imputes righteousness WITHOUT WORKS.
Anyways, let's just wrap up a few more of David Reagan's vomit:
From that point on Dillow pretty well ignores the Arminian viewpoint. The rest of the book consists of a withering attack on traditional Calvinism because of its assertion that a truly born-again person will persevere to the end. What Dillow proceeds to do is carry the fundamental assumptions of Calvinism to their logical absurdity.
Dillow’s reasoning goes like this:

1. God has predestined who will be saved and lost.
2. Those predestined to be saved are saved without condition — not even faith or repentance is required.
3. The faith of those saved (if any) is a gift of God, not an act of will, because Man is too depraved to exercise faith on his own.
4. Faith and obedience are not related, therefore faith does not necessarily produce obedience.
5. Since the saved are saved, there is nothing they can do to lose their salvation.
6. To argue that the fruit of the Spirit must be manifested in their lives as evidence of their salvation is to argue they are saved by works.
7. A saved person can live a life of debauchery and still be saved. In fact “a saved person can even publicly renounce Christ and persist in sin or unbelief to the point of physical death and still be saved” (p. 311).

If you consider the last point above to be shocking, consider this statement: “Apparently, true Christians, due to their sin, can ‘have no part’ with Christ (John 13:8), can be unforgiven (1 John 1:9), and can be outside His love” (John 15:10). He reaches this astounding conclusion because he says that none of the scriptures noted in parentheses apply to unbelievers.
Okay... okay... Reagan can't comprehend the difference between FAITH (which he should be using 'belief' as a proper word) and METANOIA. METANOIA is post-salvation and is a precursor TO believing. It's just a flow of logical steps, because some people can't refuse to do metanoia and then NEVER BELIEVE. But of course Reagan doesn't comprehend any of that and just spits them all out in a giant gummy mess.

And then notice he gets tripped up on point 7, OF COURSE YOU CAN LIVE A LIFE OF SIN AND STILL BE SAVED. What the HELL is the point of 1 John 1:9 and the cross then?!

I'd love to get more insight to what David Reagan believes but unfortunately his book is $20, and the fact he gets bent out of shape with the concept of 1 John 1:9. ... n-or-hell/
Now onto Dillow himself, there have been other people mentioning that he is a calvinist with 'preserverance of the saints', so I am more curious whether or not that's true. Preserverance of the saints isn't biblical because again, it's not permanent salvation due to the fact it bypasses metanoia and believing Christ paid for your sins.

It means accessing the actual directory the files have been copied to on your web browser. Whether that's through a public FTP link or directory through whatever management godaddy uses (like cpanel) depends.

For instance, if the files are located in: <-- you would navigate to that path (in a browser) and launch whatever HTML is in it. Again there'd be two ways of doing it, but since I have no control over it I don't know how it's set up.

A small sampling of those who are now regretting they voted for Donald Trump.

#1 Craig Moss

Apparently he thought Trump was going to make obamacare better; but of course that's not the case (and everyone SANE knew that already!). A friend in the states tells me it's now more expensive. Probably because TRUMP needs more money for his family to go on lavish vacations.

#2 Helen Beristain

Her husband was DEPORTED (and can no longer ever come back to the States) after it was discovered he came to the States illegally despite coming in in the 90's and already owning a thriving business. I honestly think it's their own fault... that they could BELIEVE Trump and were so blind. The first warning signs (for them) should have been when the Trump administration caused many American muslims to become SLAUGHTERED despite having a green card during the Bannon-ban.

Of course you can search on youtube or google for "Trump regrets" and find even more. It's just going to get worse from here as people realize TRUMP only cares about TRUMP and nobody else.

Hmmm, that's a good nickname for Ed Bott, the "microtrump" who says Windows 10 will make PCs great again. Problem is, he doesn't mention any of the newfound issues with MS baking in telemetry, cortana and CEIP.

[quote="Ed "Microtrump" Butt"]Subsequent waves will roll out slowly to other devices, with Microsoft engineers again watching telemetry for problems that can be fixed with cumulative updates that could come more often than the usual monthly Patch Tuesday release. (Because this is a brand-new code base, these cumulative updates in the first month or two can be very small and install relatively quickly.)[/quote]
Ed Bott is STILL perpetuating that gimmick. Microsoft has not revealed explicitly what they collect in telemetry, you'd have to be a dead-brain drooling monkey to casually say "watching telemetry for problems". And we KNOW it's not exclusively crash reports. Furthermore, if it was truly just that, then why is Microsoft getting more agressive about people turning it off???
Don't even get me started on the fact that the MS "telemetry engineers" don't seem to fix major issues that ripple across multiple machines--or the fact telemetry engineers refused to fix the bug that GOOGLE had to disclose. D'oh.
