Relative to our discussion about the death camps, I thought you two might appreciate this...

And I just saw this one, which is utterly disgusting and inexcusable for the "Queen" of the Whitehouse news...

No doubt there are many in the Whitehouse who agree with her, as well as virtually the entire roll call of the UN.

Wow, shocking. Whatever happened to unbiased, responsible journalism? Thanks for the link, Scott.

Actually, it's not shocking to me in the least, knowing Satan as I do, and knowing his ultra-malevolent hatred of the Jews and of genuinely born again Christians, and knowing the feebleminded souls that make up the mainstream media who are taken captive by him at his will so that they buy into his bias, yet being too blind themselves to know it. 2 Timothy 2:26

No, it's not shocking to me at all, just disgusting.

It will however be shocking to that brazenly foolish old woman when she finds herself shortly bowing before the King of the Jews, the very same Jews she hates, just like her father the devil does, and just like his stooges the media does, and where she and those very same media, along with uncounted multitudes of their kind, will find themselves speechless, even speechless before Jesus Christ, the King of the very Jews they continuously disparage and hate! Matthew 22:12

And although the false Jesus of modern professing Christianity would not command this, the Holy Spirit of the true Jesus of the Bible does, and that command is this --

"Shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them." Mark 6:11

I don't think that "unbiased" journalism has ever existed, although - "long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away" - we used to have "responsible" journalism.

This is gone now with news networks choosing sides, preferring one side of politics to another, and slanting the story to suit their ratings (i.e. their income). It happens here in Australia and, from reading the US papers online, it happens in the US as well.

I hope the Lord Jesus allows me to come to Australia before he returns or I die, whichever comes first. I was a big swimmer in high school and college, and I hear you lot love the sport down under, but either way, being the water bug I am, I dream of being able to at least once ride waves and scuba dive down under.

And I don't even necessarily care if I survive it. :cool:

There are numerous places for scuba diving but, as I understand it, the best is off of Queensland in the Great Barrier Reef.

Personally, I have two philosophies about swimming:

1) Never swim in water where your feet can't touch the bottom.

2) Never swim in water where something might want to eat you. :)

In Australia if you can't touch bottom you have less chance of stepping on a poisonous critter of some sort, of which Australia has plenty.

The getting eaten part, on the other hand, is problematical. You pays your monies and you takes yer chances.

Good visibility in the water is a definite advantage, which Australia also appears to have around the Great Barrier Reef from all the videos I've seen, but what most people don't realize is how fast a shark can appear. You can have a 100 foot visibility and not see a shark in any direction, and yet by the time you glance at your gauge and look up again one can be right there in front of you.

That ain't usually a problem since most sharks won't attack an adult human underwater, but Great White's and Tigers are another matter entirely. Too bad they won't let us carry bang sticks anymore. :cool:

Of course, if I could get a killer whale to befriend me and be my escort when I dive, I wouldn't have to worry about any of 'em.

There was a great video a few years ago of a killer whale killing a Great White Shark in San Franscisco Bay. It was big Great White, too, but the killer whale polished him off no sweat.

The media and the vast populous 'claim' to preach tolerance till someone holds to a 'worldview' that is radical different than the status quo and fails to assimilate.

I was born again at about the same time I started Journalism school at a state university (mid-70's, post-Watergate). The consensus in classes was that objectivity is subjective, and ultimately unattainable. The graduates from that period are now those in the upper management of our news outlets; our current situation is thus not surprising, but is the fruit of a very bad tree.

By contrast, I came to the conclusion during those years that objectivity exists alone in the Godhead. Man on his own is incapable of objectivity because he cannot see the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10; Eccl. 3:11); only by conforming his life to Scripture can a person hope for some semblance of objectivity, seeing the world from God's perspective.

You are correct that objectivity in the human is a myth.

Whoever you are, you are either on one side or the other, which means you either truly belong to Jesus Christ, or you don't, even if you don't know that those are your only two real choices.

That is the ultimate reality, and that is the only true reality, for your positional being -- either in or out of Jesus Christ -- is the sole determination of where you will spend eternity, and the eternity you will dwell in will not only be forever, but it will be more real than the world you live in now.

Jesus himself stated it so bluntly that it can't be denied --


"He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad... Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed." Matthew 12:30, John 6:27
