My nonreligious children shouldn’t worry Justice Alito – Los Angeles Times (latimes.com)

Why wouldn’t’ God make damn sure all the facts were correct in regards to His only begotten son – knowing there were long argument over Torah Text? Here was God’s Chance to AUTHOR the most perfect HISTORY BOOK ever written! The New Testament – could and should – glow in the dark!

The Catholic Church and the Popes did not allow common people to read the Bible and burned Jan Huss for bringing The World of God to – The Common People! The dead John Wycliffe was dug up – and burned! Justice Alita is a Catholic and needs – some Bible lessons! Does he know Martin Luther wrote a famous anti-Semitic book calling for the burning of Synagogues, where rabbis were preaching about the Coming Messiah? The Pope declared Luther’s religion a heresy – and Protestant Saints were burned at the stake. The argument over whether Jews believed Jesus was the Messiah – while he was alive – has led to declarations like this..

“However, Judaism as practiced today does not worship the Christian God; that is, they do not worship the One True God of their ancestors. They have turned away from the truth of who God is.”

FORCE the Supreme Court to rule on this one. Do not be on the fake defense with them. They just want to LOOK GOOD – by making you LOOK BAD!

Here are three articles that should shake the world. Trump alleges the Jan.6 Insurrection was conducted by the FBI, and the attempted kidnapping of Michigan’s ‘s Governor – IS FAKE NEWS! How come Justice Alita is not offering proof this Non-Secular Man of God – speaks the truth? Has Alita READ the countless FALSE PROPHECIES about his beloved President who was supposed to HAVE WON a second term – according GOD & SON? When Trump The Divine DID NOT WIN, many Christian Seers made up SECULAR LIES to go with The Fake Secular Realities – that can not contain any Biblical truths, and thus…….any truth at all.

Here is an article saying scholars can not decide how old Jesus was – when he died! I am going to write Paul Thorton and see if he wants to cover….THE TRIAL OF JESUS AND PAUL in the L.A. Times. There is no death-date for Paul – either! Paul Thorton’s DEFENCE should be….

“I would be FOR making sure all secular children get to know who Jesus is, but, whose Jesus, and in what church do I get THE FULL FACTS AND TRUTH? Will Donald Trump come out with his Bible? Can I trust – he speaks the truth?”

Call their bluff! I want the Supreme Court to RULE on many Biblical issues, such as, the controversy around Jesus healing the blind boy! I’ll get in THE RING with Alita. I want to see if he has the right stuff. That he bases his argument on a unidentified boy and is mother – is bullshit! I’m for real. Let the Conservative Court act like the Council of Constance that ruled on a conflict the Teutonic Knights were having – with pagans. My Stuttmeister ancestors are said to be Teutonic Knights. Any proof of this?

On the Jews and Their Lies – Wikipedia

Wycliffe’s Bible – Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Hus

In the first ten sections of the treatise, Luther expounds, at considerable length, upon his views concerning Jews and Judaism and how these compare to Protestants and Protestant Christianity. Following the exposition, Section XI of the treatise advises Protestants to carry out seven remedial actions, namely:[12]

  1. to burn down Jewish synagogues and schools and warn people against them
  2. to refuse to let Jews own houses among Christians
  3. to take away Jewish religious writings
  4. to forbid rabbis from preaching
  5. to offer no protection to Jews on highways
  6. for usury to be prohibited and for all Jews’ silver and gold to be removed, put aside for safekeeping, and given back to Jews who truly convert
  7. to give young, strong Jews flail, axe, spade, and spindle, and let them earn their bread in the sweat of their brow

Then later on, after John Wycliffe was dead, The Council of Constance declared Wycliffe (on 4 May 1415) a heretic and under the ban of the Church. It was decreed that his books be burned and his remains be exhumed. In 1428, at the command of Pope Martin V, Wycliffe’s remains were dug up, burned, and the ashes cast into the River Swift, which flows through Lutterworth. This is the most final of all posthumous attacks on John Wycliffe, but previous attempts had been made before the Council of Constance. The Anti-Wycliffite Statute of 1401 extended persecution to Wycliffe’s remaining followers. The “Constitutions of Oxford” of 1408 aimed to reclaim authority in all ecclesiastical matters, specifically naming John Wycliffe in a ban on certain writings, and noting that translation of Scripture into English by unlicensed laity is a crime punishable by charges of heresy.

In 2015, spurred by the lengthy prophecy of a 27-year-old wunderkind named Jeremiah Johnson, many Pentecostals and charismatics embraced the idea that God had chosen Trump to restore America’s Christian moorings. Trump’s surprise win in 2016 offered a dramatic validation, and in 2020 dozens of prophets declared that he would win election again. This time, they were wrong. Yet, in the wake of Joe Biden’s victory, instead of apologizing or backtracking, a number of prophets continue to assert that it is God’s will for Trump to be in the White House and that a miraculous reversal is nigh. Enlow, who did not respond toa request for comment for this article, has said Trump’s victory will be made clear by March.

Trump baselessly claims that Jan. 6 instigators and Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot were ‘fake’ in CPAC speech, video shows (msn.com)

Donald Trump said Capitol riot instigators and the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer were “fake” in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday.

The former president made the comments after talking about the January 6 Congressional hearings, which he called a “one-sided witch hunt.” 

“As another example, the sting they did involving Gretchen Whitmer was fake. Just like those who instigated January 6. It was a fake deal. Fake. It was a fake deal,” Trump said.

“Gretchen Whitmer was in less danger than the people sitting in this room right now.”

Jesus Christ (also known as Jesus of Galilee or Jesus of Nazareth) is the central figure in  Christianity who is seen as the son of God. Important aspects of the Christian canon are the Virgin Birth of Jesus from his mother, Mary, and Jesus’ death, which was the crucifixion.

This brings up the question of how long he lived. Different sources have different death and birth dates. Research concludes it is difficult to find the exact date of Jesus’ death because of differences in the chronology of narratives surrounding his final days.

Rick Scott tells CPAC Democrats’ policies are ‘evil,’ the ‘militant left’ is the ‘enemy’ and the ‘greatest danger we’ve ever faced’ (msn.com)

U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) gave a lengthy speech at CPAC on Friday in Dallas, telling far right conservatives that Democratic policies are “evil,” the “militant left” is the “enemy” and “the greatest danger” America has ever faced while claiming Democrats are “wacky” socialists, and socialism is responsible for the deaths of 100 million people,

How old was Jesus when he died?

Jesus was born around 4 B.C. and was crucified in A.D. 30, according to the PBS FRONTLINE show “From Jesus to Christ.” Britannica cites his birth year as ranging from 6 to 4 B.C. and has the same death year as Frontline. 

In general, Jesus’ age at death is heavily contested by scholars, according to “Dating the Death of Jesus” by Helen Bond and published online by Cambridge University Press in 2013. Some cite Jesus’ death as happening on 14th of Nisan, which would be “Friday April 7th 30 [A.D.] or April 3rd 33,” based on a scholar’s timeline preference, but Bond does not subscribe to the specificity of those dates.

Plenty of people have concerns about raising children without religion. I know, because I have three kids (two 10-year-olds and a 6-year-old), and they’re about as familiar with the Bible as they are with the Quran, the Bhagavad Gita or Dianetics.

One of those concerned adults is Samuel A. Alito Jr., the Supreme Court justice who wrote the opinion overturning Roe vs. Wade. In a recent talk he gave on religious freedom — noted mostly for his snide remarks against foreign critics of his abortion decision — Alito said this:

“I am reminded of an experience I had a number of years ago in a museum in Berlin. One of the exhibits was a rustic wooden cross. A young, an affluent woman — a well-dressed woman — and a young boy were looking at this exhibit, and the young boy turns to the woman, presumably his mother, and said, ‘Who is that man?’

“That memory has stuck in my mind as a harbinger of what may lie ahead for our culture. And the problem that looms is not just indifference to religion — it’s not just ignorance about religion — there’s also a growing hostility to religion.”

Alito gave no indication he heard the adult’s answer, and judging by the fact that he used the anecdote to set up a lecture on threats to religious liberty, I doubt he’s interested in it. To him and those upholding Christian primacy in this country (which is waning, quickly), a child asking that question at all unsettles them.

It doesn’t have to. If Alito had bothered to listen to the adult’s response, he might have learned something — perhaps how secular parents navigate societies still dominated by religious traditions, how we talk about other people’s cherished beliefs, or how we try to impart empathy and compassion to children, who naturally seem inclined to both.

The Christian Prophets Who Say Trump Is Coming Again

In the growing community of charismatic Christian prophecy, faith in Donald Trump’s imminent return to the White House is a new dividing line.

Julia Duin is a reporter in Seattle who specializes in religion.

Perched on a cream-colored armchair,Johnny Enlow, a 61-year-old, California-based Pentecostal pastor with short-cropped gray hair, a trim beard and Tom Selleck-style mustache, looked into the camera and prophesied that Donald Trump would become president again.

Not in 2024. In 2021.

“The January 20 inauguration date doesn’t really mean anything,” Enlow said in the January 29 video, which has gotten north of 100,000 views on YouTube. According to Enlow, more than 100 other “credible” Christian prophets around the world had likewise declared that Trump, somehow, would be restored to power soon.

Indeed, Enlow was not alone out on that limb. Greg Locke, a Nashville pastor with a massive social media following, said after Trump’s loss that he would “100 percent remain president of the United States for another term.” Kat Kerr, a pink-haired preacher from Jacksonville, Florida, declared repeatedly last month that Trump had won the election “by a landslide” and that God had told her he would serve for eight years. In his video, Enlow went further. “There’s not going to be just Trump coming back,” he said. “There’s going to be at least two more Trumps that will be in office in some way.” Donald Trump, he proclaimed elsewhere, was “the primary government leader on Planet Earth.”

Enlow, Locke and Kerr are among dozens of Christian prophets in America—religious leaders with followings among Pentecostal and charismatic Christians who claimthe ability to predict the future based on dreams, visions and other supernatural phenomena. Some prophets are church leaders, while others operate independently. There are no official requirements for prophet status, though followers generally expect prophets toget at least a few prophecies right.

But, lately, that standard has come under duress—particularly when it comes to Donald Trump.

In 2015, spurred by the lengthy prophecy of a 27-year-old wunderkind named Jeremiah Johnson, many Pentecostals and charismatics embraced the idea that God had chosen Trump to restore America’s Christian moorings. Trump’s surprise win in 2016 offered a dramatic validation, and in 2020 dozens of prophets declared that he would win election again. This time, they were wrong. Yet, in the wake of Joe Biden’s victory, instead of apologizing or backtracking, a number of prophets continue to assert that it is God’s will for Trump to be in the White House and that a miraculous reversal is nigh. Enlow, who did not respond toa request for comment for this article, has said Trump’s victory will be made clear by March.

With only two-thirds of voters—and one-third of Republicans—expressing confidence that Biden won a free and fair election, many observers worry that these prophets are sowing more confusion, blurring the line between misinformation and religious proclamation. They are spreading their message to wide audiences—some preachers who amplify these prophecies have followings in the millions—thatincreasingly exist in an echo chamber of like-minded religious YouTube channels, Instagram feeds and websites such as ElijahList, host of the YouTube channel ElijahStreams, where Enlow’s video aired.

It’s well known that Trump received strong support from white evangelicals in the 2020 election; estimates hover around 80 percent. But the role that prophecy plays in that support might be underexplored. In a survey conducted last year, two political scientists found that nearly half of America’s church-attending white Protestants believed Trump was anointed by God to be president—a portion of the population that other scholars have dubbed “prophecy voters.”The share is likely higher among charismatic Christians, who skew more politically and theologically conservativethan evangelicals as a whole. And although this population is only a subset of American Christianity, it’s a large one: Some estimates hold that as many as 65 million Americans could be counted as Pentecostals or charismatics.
