Concerned about your pocketbook?

Well that's great. I feel bad you're having economic hardship, because we know how important money was to Jesus. Meanwhile, in other news, 4000 babies died the day before yesterday...and yesterday...and today. 4000 will die tomorrow. But yes, I'm super concerned with the economy...not.

Rejected...but that's okay

So after two guys made an exceptionally crude joke about Jesus at the gym, I asked them if they knew anything about the guy who they were talking about. One guy didn't, one guy's been hanging out on a bunch of lefty left atheist websites. How do I know that? Because he made the comparison, which I've heard before, that Jesus is just like the ancient Egyptian god Horus.

A quick jump over to Wikipedia and a few other sources shows that most claims concerning the similarities between Jesus and Horus are bogus. For instance, Horus' mother Isis was NOT a virgin when she conceived Horus, as shown by an ancient Egyptian relief that depicts the conception by showing his mother in a falcon form, hovering over an erect phallus of a dead and prone Osiris in the Underworld. Another claim these people find shocking is that supposedly Horus was born on December 25. That's irrelevant (and only has a 1 in 365 chance of being true). Nowhere does the New Testament associate this date with Jesus' birth at all. This is simply the date Christians have chosen to celebrate the birth. Did I mention Horus' head was a bird head?

It's convenient that the conspiracy books and websites have trouble producing the original Egyptian sources of these dumb claims.

This guy also threw around obscure and most certainly misquoted or out-of-context Bible verses to try and prove his point. When witnessing, I let most of those things go on by and focus on Christ. I did address some of them though.

Everyone deep down knows there's a God. His creation screams that He exists. We know paintings have painters because the painting exists. Same with buildings and builders. Creation has to have a creator. And don't use the, "but we can go see the painter or builder!" argument. I don't think any of you could go see DaVinci. The moral code that is pretty much universal to humanity is made evident in our conscience, which is an aspect of what God has written on our hearts. Evolution can't explain that (among a whole lot of other things).

The fact is, so many people love their sin so much they will use any excuse to not follow God. They will do anything or read anything that will help to convince themselves there is no God. Why? They don't want to believe there is Someone that expects certain things from us and knows when we fail because of our own stubborn choosing.

There is hope (do I sound like Obama there?). Put aside your pride. Repent of your sins. Trust Jesus Christ, the only wise and true God, for the forgiveness of your sins. He died 2000 years ago to pay the fine for breaking God's law.

It's okay. These guys heard the gospel.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)

Here is a great explanation of Osiris, Horus, and Jesus (the true God fyi ;-))

Worst case scenario

So since it kinda looks like Obamuhh is going to win, I've decided to speculate on what America will look like under his administration. First, he'll implement the Fairness Doctrine. Radio stations will drop conservative programming rather than give free airtime to anybody. This will stifle conservative talk radio, one of the few outlets for conservative points of view. Then we'll have next to no voice in the media.

Bush has 40 judicial appointments that the dems won't vote on. If Obamuhh gets in, he'll slap huge liberals into those spots. Any supreme court opening will also see a liberal appointment. That means for at least 20 years, and more likely forever, the face of America will be irrevocably changed. Abortion will continue unimpeded. We'll also likely see gay marriage down the road. But why stop there? With the definition of marriage destroyed, why not allow polygamy? Who wants to marry their goat? Everything goes!

We'll have a beefed up nanny state. More and more regulations not only on business, but on individuals. I love it when the government tells me how to live my life...not. He has already confirmed his belief of a Robin Hood style economy. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor will cause record unemployment and a general crap economy. Just look at where the dems have gotten us in two years.

So if he's elected, could anything stop the dem congress and Obamuhh from getting whatever they want? With Obama in the White House, the Dems controlling Cnogress and Obama's newly shaped Supreme Court seated, exactly what would there be to stop it? The leftwing media?
