    This is such non-sense. That does not happen anylonger now that we’re in the age of Jesus. Quit reading the Old testament.

    • Kevin C

      I would read II Timothy 3:16 before you go around telling people to stop reading the Old Testament.

      • suzyshopper

        Somehow i guess she missed that verse in her readings.Also Matthew 5:17,18 also Luke 16:17.

      Your first sentence covers this whole debate.

      What would you do with the Ananias and Sapphira story of these guys running from God’s truth about lying, or what would you say about Saul being struck blind by God for running from God’s perfect will. What say you.

      Rhonda please believe me when I say you are wrong on that. The NT explains the OT truth. However, it does not disallow for it. In other words we are not really happy unless we are in His will. It is like the Columbia River. Since the dams are in place the fish and the water does not exactly do what the Lord intended. Look at it now compared to before.

      The New Testament validates the Old Testament. Both are important to read and both are the same God.

    • sandraleesmith46

      The OT and the NT are, in fact, ONE consistent message from start to finish. You need the OT to understand and live out the NT, just as the Apostles did, and as Jesus Himself did. It was the OT from which He and they were teaching!

    • Winston

      I beg to differ based on my life experiences. Jesus did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

  • ary

    Yep, God IS still God! And we are merely His creation. He has expectations and boundaries for us!

  • melissasmom

    You certainly have a way with words, Doug.
    We have all the things we do have because God loved us enough to allow for our happiness. However, it is God’d world and He is the boss. Remember that everyone.

  • James

    The bible is full of times that Christians were told to pick up the sword and fight for Christ as Christian Warriors. In fact Christ brings misfortune upon you when you turn from Christ. I believe that may be California’s problem right now, and if they don’t quit supporting all of these homosexuals and such it will get a hell of a lot worst. I posted once that Egypt had 7 plagues California had already had 4 and the 7th could well be the big quake they have feared.

    Perhaps given the trajectory of the country, the fact that the Democrat party wanted to drop any mention of God from their platform, and the abject public hedonism displayed across America, God should be angry. We seem to have forgotten who really is boss and who we owe our allegiance to.

    Book of Jonah is not all about one man but in first part about the crew and how they chose as not only a group but as individuals. We’re not the ones with no hands on Jonah as guilty of murder or attempted murder ie doing nothing sometimes is just as bad as crime. The other part of. Book of Jonah is similar but much larger city populas scale. Please, the big fish part is a small part of why God breathed the book of Jonah.
    It’s about those that watch Obama lie cheat and scream I’m going to break law and abuse Executive Orders or throw me overboard… Vs take me to court. The crew had no right throwing anyone overboard and those that did nothing were also to blame.

  • OrlandoRican

    All I have to say is: Please hurry!

    • MoparToYa

      I concur, this daily insanity is maddening …

  • Igor

    Sorry, Doug, God does NOT punish us – what he *does* do is unchain Satan and let Beelzebub have his way with us.
    The end results are the same, though. Hey, why quibble over minor differences?!?

    • sargeant rock

      Please feel free to explain these verses then… God most certainly DOES “discipline” us just as we would discipline a errant child…

      Deuteronomy 8:5
      You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so
      the Lord your God chastens you.

      1 Corinthians 11:32
      Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.

      Hebrews 12:6
      For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.”

  • HongryHawg

    I listened when I was called, and life has never been better, personally. I am not including politics in this statement.

  • sandraleesmith46

    Oh yeah! God can be such a NUDGE, if you’re trying to weasel out of some project He’s set for you, for whatever reason!

    • Marie

      You are the weasel, Satandra.

  • Rob Erta

    Despite seductive illusions and promises of equality, the spoils of collectivism’s plunder are practically available only to the collective’s masters.

  • Ben Name

    I think when God attacks I think it will be swift and fast. There won’t be much running.

  • Payton Manning

    By assaulting private property, collectivism channels our aggressive instincts outward, resulting in modern-day systems of masters, serfs, and plunder — more commonly known as socialism, communism, and the welfare state.
