Most people consider the overall record of their life and their eternal destiny to be on a Pass/Fail basis, and figure that God "grades on the curve."
The self-appointed self-righteous immoral majority see no problem with presenting the smorgasbord of the summation of their lifetime thoughts, speech, and actions to the Final Judge having a little evil feces and wicked urine thrown in here and there "to spice things up a bit" and "add a little variety."
Most presume that it is quite common, normal, and expected to tell the Ultimate Husband of their Souls that "once in a while I had coital copulation with a few other guys here and there because I got a little bored now and then."
But before we get into that, do you believe that practicing harlots and both licensed and non-licensed harlot-lookalikes we see during the day and into the evening belong to us? Do we own them?
If not, why should we allow ourselves to be enticed by their passing and transient immodesty of frequently-anonymous loose long hair, sleevelessly-naked arms, slackslessly-nude legs exposed with bermuda or shorter shorts or shortened skirts, and/or soxless parts of their bare feet in open-toe sandals?
If they misconstrue us as rude for not subtly or courteously gawking at them as they expect us to do, are they themselves instead being rude for exhibiting themselves in their lascivious partial indecency without us having previously expressed forthright desire to voluntarily view such immodest distraction and indecent deviation?
If they mis-regard us as being impolite, are they themselves being impolite and inconsiderate by proudly shoving their filthy particularly-during-warm-weather mis-attire into our cannot-help-but-glance-at-it eyesight?
Why be erotically aroused by them and not instead casually but immediately turn away from them and thus from continuing to peruse them to study their exposed body parts....when we cannot sensuously make touchy-feely use of them anyway, and they probably would not want us to make sexual use of them besides (much to the appreciation of their fathers and jealous boyfriends and husbands or greedy pimps)?
Even so-called "christian" girls and women cannot be communicated with in cordial eye-to-eye contact when they are mis-dressed in one or more ways, as Saint Paul stated:
First Corinthians 3:1 But I, [brethren], could not address you as spiritual [men], but as [men] of the flesh, as babes in Christ.
Admirably, the LORD Himself does not force people into faith and belief and obedience -- but instead gently but persistently advises and coaxes them (with sundry words and ways) by enabling them with their God-conceived born-with senses to observe nature with their God-given reason and logic, as they themselves (with God's continuing assistance and empowerment) adjust and work with what they readily perceive as phenomenally-accommodating natural entities He has intelligently designed and provided -- awestruck with created beauty, power, consistency, stability, extensiveness, and indestructibility. Even when questioning, doubting, disobediently-wayward rebels attempt to ignore, disregard, or maliciously fight against the benign manifestations of the Creator, they only hurt, injure, cripple, or even annihilate themselves in proportion to the severities of their futile and absurd, senseless and mindless, aberrations.
As Creator and Maintainer of Planet Earth, the Almighty Creator not merely has ownership and regulatory rights, but also has the power and intention to consign those who forever want to love, worship, and be around Him to everlasting bliss..... while perpetually consigning those who forever hate, curse, blaspheme, and do NOT want to be around Him ad infinitum to everlasting outer-darkness fiery torment. Such is the fascinating and realistic combination of His conditional love with His conditional hatred both for and against who and what the reader can and should easily deduce.
Right now, one can rather readily ascertain who virulently and sometimes even violently hate and curse the religious right, the Christian right, Christian fundamentalists....whether inside the Church or in politics and government. Thankfully, the Benevolent One will ultimately provide ample opportunity and incentive of much greater opportunity for the diabolically-depraved accursed to continue solitary-confined exclamations of their worthless mouths in Hell.
Obama-Administration cohorts are certainly not the only ones to blame. Every anti-righteously vile and irrational american (small "a") who willfully despised the anti-abortion-homicide and anti-homogay-pervert postulations of Bush Jr. and thus proudly displayed an Obama-Biden bumper sticker on their vehicles, posted an Obama-Biden lawn sign in their yards or windows or doors, contributed money to the Obama-Biden campaign, puffed and promoted him on radio and TV, and/or on Election Day voted him in.....is also at fault and perhaps destined for never-ending eternal destruction. Also under a curse are those goofs (family and friends included) who voted for inferior-gender VP-candidate Sarah Palin, violating:
First Timothy 2:11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow NO woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
An ominous and frightening Divine political and personal curse from Jesus Christ is on and against all such people, including the 219 House members who voted Obamascare into law.....but a wonderful blessing from the Lord on all House Republicans and those 35 House Democrats who voted against it. Exactly how, when, and it what ways that holy and sacred curse and blessing will affect the aforementioned is known in every detail only to God Almighty. And there is no power in existence that can prevent that.
Consider the very nature of the Creator. Though He admittedly was responsible for placing the stumbling blocks of the Tempter and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden, the LORD God (whose atoning and redemptive Son became embarrassingly naked when born in a barn and then even more humiliated by being cruelly murdered on some cross) was obviously pro-choice.....in that He did NOT force nor bribe nor arm-twist [in stark contrast to what occurred publicly and privately to get House members to pass Pelosi/Reid Obamascare!] our primal-ancestral parents Eve and Adam to reach out and eat the "Government"-option fatal fruit. Contrast that with Obamascare forcing people to do more than what governmental agents are authorized to insist upon, reminiscent of:
Genesis 41:44 Moreover Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man shall lift up hand or foot in all the land of Egypt."
For a limited group of people, with limited purpose (as when joining a fraternity, club, association, denominational church, etc.), certain initiation and membership particulars are not unusual nor necessarily illegitimate:
Genesis 34:15 Only on this condition will we consent to you: that you will become as we are and every male of you be circumcised.
But when everyone is required by law and thus in essence forced to also do whatever initiation and membership particulars of whatever group or association, the line has been crossed and understandable boundaries have been trespassed and violated:
Acts 15:1 But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved."
5 But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up, and said, "It is necessary to circumcise them, and to charge them to keep the law of Moses."
7 And after there had been much debate, Peter rose and said to them, "Brothers, you know that in the early days God made choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.
8 And God who knows the heart bore witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us;
9 and he made no distinction between us and them, but cleansed their hearts by faith.
10 Now therefore why do you make trial of God by putting a yoke upon the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?
11 But we believe that we shall be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will."
13 After they finished speaking, James replied, "Brothers, listen to me.
19 Therefore my judgment is that we should not trouble those of the Gentiles who turn to God,
20 but should write to them to abstain from the pollutions of idols and from unchastity and from what is strangled and from blood.
21 For from early generations Moses has had in every city those who preach him, for he is read every sabbath in the synagogues."
Galatians 2:3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled to be circumcised, though he was a Greek.
Galatians 6:12 It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.
What "rights" or "needs" should government provide the governed with?
Non-"entitlement"/Non-"welfare" government-option-pension 'Social Security'? Non-"entitlement"/Non-"welfare" already-established government-option health-insurance and health-care 'Medicare' and 'Medicaid?' Food stamps for lazy freeloaders addicted to work-for-nothing handouts? What should people be forced to accept from the Obama Administration?
It would clearly be unconstitutional for the Obama Administration to require people to breathe, walk, run, stretch, eat, urinate, defecate. It would be ludicrous for the Obama Administration to prohibit people from bathing, yawning, jumping, sneezing and coughing (by themselves), using certain amounts of toilet paper, requiring use of only certain brands of deodorant and toothpaste, etc.
For those who neither own nor drive a car on public roads, Obama-Administration-mandated vehicle insurance purchase would obviously be laughable. For those who do not own a house, Obamanian declaration of mandatory purchase of house insurance would be a sick joke.
But if one drives on public roads, the government who (through public taxes of individuals comprising interdependent cooperative communities and neighborhoods) funded the construction and maintain those roads is justified in setting rules for use for those utilizing such public roads.
Still, (and importantly!): people are NOT required to ride vehicles on public roads.....nor should they be. Nor should they be ordered by the Obama Administration to use only public transit which would only run on major routes and not conveniently to every personal place, nor forced to only use curly light bulbs, nor forced to build a backyard wind-turbine generator by Obama's environmentalists.
Should people get fined and imprisoned for sneezing, catching a common cold, getting the flu, having fever and diarrhea....or being constipated, burping, and farting in a lavatory? Must they have forced Obama-Administration-run medical insurance for such? Will Obamascare be extended to regulate all sorts of personal health-related and over-the-counter personal selection of medications and treatments? Will Obamanites outlaw suicide, punish home hospice inmates, and victims accidentally handicapped with IRS fines?
Study carefully the following futuristic scenario, and see IF you can detect any IRS or other fines imposed precisely and only for people not receiving the 666 Mark of the Beast:
Revelation 13:1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon his horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads.
Revelation 13:4 Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against him?"
Revelation 13:5 And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and he was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months;
Revelation 13:6 he opened his mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming His name and His dwelling, that is, those who reside in heaven.
Revelation 13:7 Also he was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation,
Revelation 13:8 and all who reside on earth will worship him, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain.
Revelation 13:9 If any one has an ear, let him hear:
Revelation 13:10 If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if any one slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
Revelation 13:11 Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke like a dragon.
Revelation 13:12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.
Revelation 13:13 He works great signs, even making [SDI?] fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men;
Revelation 13:14 and by the signs which he is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, he deceives those who reside on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived;
Revelation 13:15 and he was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.
Revelation 13:16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,
Revelation 13:17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the [embedded-implant tattoo?] mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:18 This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, his number is: six hundred and sixty-six.
As one can plainly observe, there is no punishment specifically for not receiving the Mark of the Beast. Receiving such will be completely optional: NO forced and mandatory Obamascare-insurance purchase by Americans or anyone else! The only thing is that one will not be able to buy from nor sell to [willfully-marked global inhabitants participating in commerce] without that Mark (whether that involves integration of and enforcement by the Interstate Commerce Commission, Department of Commerce, Securities and Exchange Commission, FDA, HHS, etc.), which Mark would also function (with perhaps Department-of-Homeland-Security, Department of Defense, and FBI cooperation) as a global anti-terrorist/identification-registering Mark of Assured Eternal Damnation:
Revelation 14:9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any one worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,
Revelation 14:10 he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of its name."
Revelation 14:12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
Will those who do not receive the Mark be arrested, jailed, or murdered because they do not receive the Mark? NO! Taking the Mark will be optional (completely unlike mandatory-insurance-purchase Obamascare!). However, such resistors and protesters will be slandered, libeled, reviled, ridiculed, defamed, and blasphemed as subversives, traitors, dangerous extremists, anti-socially hateful, disloyal, unpatriotic, anti-peace warmongers (does all that even now sound familiar with all the hypocritically-hateful-themselves blattering and bellering out accusatory condemnation, emanating like menstrual-diarrhea filth from demonic deviates of the godless Left?).
But, in fact, ARE religious-right/Christian-fundamentalist penitent-saints-saved-by-grace deserving such misrepresentation? Scripture gives the resounding and contrary answer:
Revelation 17:14 states that "they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He (not she) is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him (not Her) are called and chosen and faithful."
