Saturday May 13th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Despite the travails of a less than great week, Back wants us to know that all will be well. I think that’s why he wrote this.

    It’s Caterday Treepers! This video so reminds me of our yellow Tabby, a grizzled stray who lived under our house for quite some time before he even allowed us to see him. Slowly he came to trust us and our late border collie until he spent a long winter inside with us. He’s getting old now and is slowing down but, just a few months ago, he did the most remarkable thing. Early one very cold morning I head a little kitten crying outside our window. I put some food out for her but when I went out later to check, it hadn’t been eaten. Our old Tom went through the fence, walked over to a hiding place and led this tiny little lost kitten to the food bowl. I’ve never seen a male cat do that but it was clear that this pair were instant friends. He’d found her and brought her home. Little Tinkerbell is now a full member of hour household and the two are inseparable.

    Shocking video shows PARENTS ‘viciously attacking five female high school students’ in revenge for attack on their kids
    11 May 2017

    Shocking cell phone footage shows the moment several female students were allegedly attacked outside their California high school by another teen’s parents.

    The chaotic video showed students from Knight High School in Palmdale, California, yelling and standing in a huge circle as the adult attackers punched, kicked and swung the victims around by their hair.

    One victim was slammed to the ground and an attacker jumped on top of her and punched her repeatedly in the face.

    Dear Jane Fonda: Minimum Wages Destroy Jobs
    May 11, 2017


    Respected economist David Neumark examined all of the major academic minimum-wage studies from the previous 20 years, more than 100 studies in all. Eighty-five percent of the studies found that minimum-wage laws destroy jobs, causing workers to lose jobs and/or hours or causing businesses to shut down. “Minimum-wage laws,” said Neumark, have “a negative employment effect on low-skilled workers.”

    Believe it or not, before minimum-wage laws took effect, a black teenager was actually more likely to have a job than a white teen. I repeat — before the impact of federal minimum-wage laws, the first of which was in 1938, a black teen was more likely to be employed than a white teen. What happened?

    Nobel-winning economist Milton Friedman calls the minimum-wage law “one of the most, if not the most, anti-black laws on the statute books.” Friedman said: “The do-gooders believe that by passing a law saying that nobody shall get less than $2 an hour or $2.50 an hour, or whatever the minimum wage is, you are helping poor people who need the money. You are doing nothing of the kind. What you are doing is to assure that people whose skills are not sufficient to justify that kind of a wage will be unemployed. …

    I know many of you have listened to the Mark Taylor prophecy about President Trump. I have as well, I’ve kept it in mind many times but I also believe that according to the Bible, that we should not listen to mediums and false prophets so we have to be discerning. I had kept an open mind about Mark Taylor’s prophecy because people in my family have had many spiritual experiences and I know God is with President Trump as we try to defeat the evil that has encapsulated the country and our world.

    The person who interviewed and has hosted Mark Taylor has a video that I have come across, in which it seems he basically discredits the Bible and says Holy Communion, which is in the Gospel, is pagan and false. I don’t know if Mark Taylor believes or belongs to this person’s theory of worship. I am disturbed and wanted to bring this to your attention and see if any of you have any thoughts on this.

    I know many pagan holidays were changed to the Church calendar, probably for the transition into Christianity. From what I’ve read, they say Jesus was probably born in the spring. However, we know God is aware that we celebrate his birth at the time we do. I also have seen/read that there was a lot of debate to decide what was Canon, due to the dubiousness of some of the proposed Books for the Bible. What we have been given in the Bible was determined to be most true and credible by those scholars.

      yes it is true that some Protestants and Pentecostals teach what is called “the Great apostasy”, but lets be honest, Catholics still call all Protestants heretics and their churches false.


      • auscitizenmom says:

        LOL I was raised Southern Baptist and they considered Catholics pagans.


        • auscitizenmom says:

          Well, I was still a child, and my teachers were not ordained, and they way they explained the Catholic Church gave me that impression, if they didn’t say it outright. And, I think you stated what probably should have been taught, very well. 🙂

          I had a roommate who was a Fundamental Baptist. He used to distribute little cartoon books that said why your religion was wrong and that you need to … And by ‘your’ I mean any religion you can think of. He had a catalog, and It listed every church I could think of and a good bit more. Except of course his church. Other Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc. Of course it included all the different types of each. There’s quite a variety.

          I asked him once if the printer had different catalogs that he sold to those other churches. Catalogs with that church’s name removed and his church’s name added. How would they ever make money restricting themselves to one very limited branch of just one type of protestant church?

          Of course Catholics were on the list. Why restrict yourself to Moonies when you can attack all of the world’s religions?

      (…)he basically discredits the Bible and says Holy Communion, which is in the Gospel, is pagan and false. I don’t know if Mark Taylor believes or belongs to this person’s theory of worship.”

      I was raised in the Lutheran Church Missouri synod. We practiced communion, but a person had to go through communion classes and were in about the 7th grade. I’ve never heard from any church I’ve ever attended – Baptist, Protestant, Catholic, etc – where they said celebration of the last supper was “pagan.” That makes no sense to me.


      • Kaco says:

        Yes, I understand, my husband is LCMS and our oldest if finally going through Confirmation Classes and I haven’t take Communion there because I haven’t gone through it. I was baptised Methodist and had attended that church and later a Grace Brethren, which I think is an offshoot of Baptist.

        I went on his channel curious for Mark Taylor updates and had clicked on the video thinking they were going to talk about the Church’s corruption with modern day liberalism only to find he is telling us that the Bible and Holy Communion is wrong, even saying that Cain was the one who made the animal sacrifice and Abel made the harvest one. This person’s teachings are anti-Biblical to me. I suppose I shouldn’t be listening to any one’s “prophecy”, look where it leads to. Beware.

          “This person’s teachings are anti-Biblical to me.”

          I haven’t seen his other stuff, but the Communion part sure seems that way to me. I’m going off the top of my head here and don’t know what he specifically said. But a “pagan” ritual would be a sacrifice to one of the Gods. Food, drink, or some sort of offering to, say Zeus or Apollo. As a means of pleasing or honoring them and perhaps gaining good fortune.

          Communion, or remembrance of the last supper, Is a ritual remembrance of, and participation in, Jesus sacrifice for US. “Do this in remembrance of me.” He spilled his blood for us so that we got the good fortune of having sins washed away and gaining eternal life.

          The pagan ritual is a sacrifice to the Gods. The Christian ritual is remembrance of God sacrifice for us. It’s a pretty blatant difference.

      My understanding is no one knows for sure when Jesus was born, but they use December 25 as his birth (9 month a full baby term) from his Crucifixion.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu. We pray for France, and for the safety of Marine Le Pen.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
