The Similarities of Job and Israel

israel charles lee feinberg

This is not my original idea, but the points are taken from the book, “Israel at the center of History & Revelation” written by Charles Lee Feinberg. I just added a few of my own knowledge in each points.

SUFFERING
Job: Even though an upright man, suffered a tribulation that few people could survive. Satan took all his wealth, children and was inflicted with a skin disease.

Israel: A chosen nation, and highly favored by God, but was persecuted first by Pharaoh, then by several big empires such as the Assyrians, Romans, and the latest one was under Hitler in Germany.

UNDER THE CRITICS’ SCRUTINY
Job: His friend’s came over to sympathize with him, but it changed into criticism and judgement.

Israel: People from all departments of life – liberals, Muslims and even Christians have become self-appointed, self-sustained, and assuredly self-opinionated telling her the reason for her trials. Lately, she is unfairly accused of being a murderer of children or even ironically called a terrorist.

RESTORATION (Not in Fienberg’s book)
Job: After his suffering, Job’s fortunes – wealth, healing and children were restored. He also became a channel of blessing not just to his family, but his friends as well.

Israel: After her last suffering under the Nazis, the Jews have excelled in areas of science, medicine, health and business. Consequently, many nations received the benefits in these areas.

IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD
Job: He was corrected of his own limited knowledge about God, He is more than what he used to know.

Israel: This will happen in the future when Israel will acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The Messiah that the Israelis are still waiting for has been Jesus all along.

The prosperity she is having now cannot be compared of what’s in store once they do that.

The Presbyterian Church USA is Turning into A Cult

Presbyterian Church USA controversyPresbyterian Church USA is going down the drain spiritually.

Just this month alone, they announced two decisions that are clearly contrary to the Bible.

There are a lot of Presbyterian named churches, one is Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), but the latter still remains a conservative.

So here are three controversial decisions that PCUSA have approved.

1. Gay Marriage
The statement they released did not mention marriage of “same sex”, but for an educated person, you already know what it means.

“marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman.”

Maybe these people do not know the reason why God disallow homosexuality?

2. Supporting Against Israel
On June 20, PCUSA announced that they divested (removed) their $21 million from from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions.

PCUSA blamed these companies are involved in “non-peaceful pursuits” in the region. Meaning according to PCUSA “the three companies are helping Israel to the troubles caused”.

This church is violating Genesis 12:2-3, and that also means they’re digging a grave for themselves. They also don’t know about Islam’s permissible lie, also known as “taqiya”, which clearly they were duped by the lies.

 

The third one below I just discovered while searching for more information about PCUSA.

3. Pro-Abortion
This was already approved a long time ago, in 1970

“Women should have full freedom of personal choice concerning the completion or termination of their pregnancies.”

The term “personal choice” has been the words used by liberals, mostly anti-religious people who are for abortion.

 

 

Long time members should leave this church now. If you have a mission to change them, maybe you can stay, but there’s a danger or you might become one of them.

Let’s just pray for them.

Could there be connivance between the Chinese and the Philippine Government officials?

First off, this is just my theory.

There could be connivance of both Chinese and some of the Philippine Government officials.

The “higher ups” of Philippine government could be receiving bribe money from the Chinese government so that these structures can be built without any hindrance or problems.

The government buying of planes and boats supposedly to safeguard the territory is just one of the ways for some officials involved in the purchase to get a few millions for their own pockets.

Just a possibility.

Some of the wars that is happening around the world are just fabrication so that a few can make money out of it.

Irony of Respecting the Other Country’s Laws, but Hate our Own

I posted a news article about a Muslim woman being punished for adultery by stoning to death, and I criticized it.

Then a friend said, “It’s their law, we just have to respect it.”

I find it really ironic when some people will say “it’s their law, just respect it”, but shout to the heavens and make fun of some laws here in our own country.

Why Atheists Should be Thankful to the Christians

Atheists should be thankful to the Christians particularly the Catholics for thwarting the Islamization in Europe.

Because of it you have now the freedom to be who you are unlike in Islamic countries.

Recently, Saudi Arabia is planning to make a law making the atheists a “terrorist” group.

Atheists in Islamic countries face death, and even former Muslims who became atheists in non Islamic countries  are threatened with death as well by the Muslims.

atheism church

Atheists are free to express their atheism in Christian dominated countries, and even in the lone Jewish country in the Middle East- Israel.

Ironically, atheists hate Christianity and Judaism first and secondly the other religions, in that order.

I could see the atheists spew their anger and hatred against Christianity on my Facebook wall almost on a daily basis.

Another irony is that  a number of atheists defend Islam or the Muslims in debates, articles  and videos criticizing Islam.

So atheists control yourself, and be grateful to the Christians and Jews.

Atheists are brutal and genocidal too

Atheists are brutal and genocidal.

I saw a meme (a photo with captions) in a Facebook page about comparison between religious people and the atheists. Atheists poke fun at people with religion both Christians and Muslims for the bloodshed that the two big religions have committed.

The cartoon below is similar to it, but I could not find the exact photo.

Sorry to disappoint you atheists, but you too are  bloody and murderous.

Kim Jung Un is atheist. He ordered the death of his uncle, and according to news sources, he was fed to the dogs. Thirty three North Korean Christians are facing execution, it’s just a matter of time.

Hitler was also an atheist, yes he grew up a Christian, but he converted to atheism, and later probably because of delusions of grandeur set himself as God. The latter description is based on a “worship” song sang by German school children in the later part of World War 2.

China is also an atheist country, we all heard about brutalities done to its citizens.

Communist USSR, though commonly called Russia back then was an atheist country. A lot of horror stories, its citizens escaping out of the country.

Atheist countries are similarly authoritarian and abusive to Islamic countries.

Russia’s present president Putin has labeled himself and his country as Christian. He probably learned something hard from their past atheistic history.

Lastly, Timothy McVeigh, the man who bombed a Oklahoma City building in the United States on April 19, 1995 resulting to the death of 168 people, including 19 children, with several hundred more injured.

He was an atheist too.

So atheists, don’t be “self-righteous” as well :).

Which should be banned in Malls and Banks?

The Philippine National Police have proposed of banning the wearing of caps inside malls, in connection with the series of robberies inside Metro Manila malls.

The robbers usually wear cap to conceal their identities.

The proposal received a lot of negative reactions from the public.

The police should ban the burqa or niqab. It may not be entire garment, but perhaps veil part, the covering on the face.

Five Reasons Why being Unfriended on Facebook is Just Okay

From point of view of the one being unfriended.

In the past six (6) months, I noticed that five of my friends who I never debated nor had any violent arguments with, have unfriended me on Facebook.

Initially, my ego gets hurt to be honest. But then, several seconds later, I had to brush myself off the insult dust, and just let it go because of several reasons.

1. It’s their right to unfriend me or anyone. It’s not a crime to do it. If they don’t like me as a person, they can freely unfriend me.

2. If my post offends them, then they can delete me. Even though I myself does not get into debate nor insult their opposing views by commenting on their posts. Nor do I reply to a insulting comment on my own posts.

3. My confident self starts to get up after my ego has been knocked off. My mind would think of “They made a mistake by unfriending me. Someday they would be proud that they have unfriended someone like me.” Or “Mag lumba ra mog linya para makig friend nako in the future.”

Haha. Hambog ra kaayo. Confident gud.

Facebook unfriending

4. In the Bible says, ‘do not respond to an insult with insult’. If unfriending is insulting, just let it go, let it gooo.

5. I take it positively because, the person who unfriended me is honest and direct kesa uban friends na dili mo reply kung mo ask ko questions through private messages.

Go ahead, unfriend me.

Why does God prohibit Homosexuality?

The Christian bible is not direct of the reason why the God of Moses prohibits homosexuality. I believe God first implemented its prohibition in Leviticus 18:22.

“‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

– Leviticus 18:22 New International Version (NIV)

Homosexuality in the bible

Even some preachers could only say “it’s because God says so”. But that reason is not enough. Through the years, I think I already found two reasons why God prohibits it.

1. God wanted man to multiply. Adam and Eve were created so they would have children, and their children will their own as well in the future.

This multiplication is needed so that God’s love, restoration and sovereignty can be spread throughout the world. Outside of the garden of Eden was a fallen and devastated world dominated by Satan. It was destroyed when Lucifer was kicked out of heaven after the head of the angels rebelled against God.

So in order to multiply, a man and woman should have sexual intercourse with each other. A homosexual relationship would stunt the multiplication.

2. God loves life and healing. Homosexuals lead in the HIV/AIDS death in the US and the Philippines, and I believe it’s also the same in the other countries.  A gay man’s sexual activity is very much different than a straight guy. Gays are more aggressive and have more than one sexual partners at the same time.

See the death statistics in the Philippines and United States.

In Denmark, gays with partners has an average life span of 51 years old, compared to married heterosexual men with 74.

3. Homosexuality is also linked to pedophilia. A lot of normal gays we know do engage in sex with minors. That would be dangerous to the children.

A friend I know was molested by an adult gay when he was 11. And yeah, he has homosexual tendencies now.

God is love. He loves life and he loves us. God doesn’t want us to engage in activities that will eventually lead to our own suffering and death.

Michelle Obama’s hairstyles

I have actually felt guilty in posting this. Making fun at some person’s physical appearance is a thing of the past for me. But after looking at Michelle Obama’s hair, I can’t help it but resurrect the mean part of me.
