Something To Do With Throwing Chicken Bones Around And Virgins Into Volcanos

BY Herschel Smith
11 months, 1 week ago

Via David Codrea, this proposal as explained at Reason.

The Trump administration is reportedly considering a pitch from former NBC Chairman Robert Wright, a presidential pal, for a research program aimed at preventing mass shootings by electronically monitoring people who have received psychiatric diagnoses. That Orwellian plan may or may not be defeated by its utter impracticability.

Wright has dubbed his idea SAFEHOME—an acronym for Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes. The Washington Post reports that his three-page proposal imagines using “technology like phones and smart watches” to “detect when mentally ill people are about to turn violent.” The idea, the paper says, is to look for “small changes that might foretell violence.”

Ouija boards, palm readers, witches, warlocks, carnival fortune tellers, tribal witchdoctors, and “small changes that might foretell violence.”

It’s all the same thing to me, and if you have any sense at all, you too.  The Bible clearly says that those guilty of divination will not inherit the kingdom of heaven, and that the Lord hates such people (Galatians 5:19-21, Leviticus 19:24-32, Deuteronomy 18:9-15, Jeremiah 27: 9-19, Exodus 22: 18-19, 1 Samuel 15:23, Isaiah 2:5-8).

    I have a wild guess. Trump has had a little bit of time to grasp that people who believe in gun rights are really upset with him right now. It also may have dawned on him that many of those folks were his voters. Since he has ran around like a fool siding with the “something must be done” crowd, he has backed himself into a corner.

    Now he is desperately looking for anything that can be seen as addressing the problem while still being acceptable to gun rights people. He will not accomplish that goal with this crap.

    Hope you are well.

    Re: Trump anything,

    The man is a deal maker. He “wrote the book” on it, and thusly, he gonna make some deals. Seriously, people, thats a what he agonna do.

    I think the concern is why is this deal. 2a? Of all things, why is it about the guns, and now a lifetime of being on mental ‘probation’. And that in itself is the actual issue.

    Those on mental probation won’t have crap. They wont have a house, a car, any privacy, nothing. Food, insurance, job. A life. Prison in open society. And of course, no guns. DUH! Feature! Not bug! The new reality. Google and USG own your data, therefore they own YOU. The mark will be the last cookie you downloaded, and the Agent looking after you can see in real time all your ………………

    The Stasi perfected it. They did not have any computers and internet. Think about that. HARD! That will be on the test!

    So the deal is statism. It becomes a society where the agent will always be with you. The smart thing would be to join the party now and spare the pain. Become thy enemy.

    Internet occupiers! This message is for you!

    POTUSDJT campaigned on the gun thing. Also the immigrant thing, the China thing, all hose things.

    USSEN Warren campaigns on the same thing. Immigrant China, all those.

    Pattern. Repeating. Hello you guys! Hey!

    If the news comes out tomorrow the Operation Fast and Furious was still active, would it surprise anyone? Its not. But can change at anytime.

    Communism is here folks. They have no interest in sugar coating it. Do it and get er done!

    Mental health, commies best excuse since 1917.

    We are screwed. Tom762

    RE: Divination,

    I don’t think Trump reads, adheres to, or believes the Bible. Everything happens for a reason providentially as we approach the time of Jacob’s trouble.
    Only Jesus can save…

    Ooh, hate.
    I’m interested in the word emulations in Galatians 5:20. That these Red Flag laws are idolatry (fedgov as god), and witchcraft (divination of the future), and seditions (not only against the ordinances of God Almighty but also against those supposed to be served by leaders) but these will surely lead to murders. You see, you can’t have one little pet sin and think that the devil will leave it at that. And this is why God hates these things because they make a man hate Him, and by hating Him, He is left with little choice but to turn you over to a reprobate mind, and blind you.

    The whole nation is blinded in that they especially think they have it all figured out. Never forget the lie, “Ye shall not surely die.” Yes you will surely die. All men are appointed once to die. There are no balances in Heaven, there is the blood Jesus Christ or the second death. Even the Christians in America are wicked, slothful, one talent servants who hate God. LORD help me please.

    I met a young lady this week who has been Christian for several years now, and I believe that she truly believes and she marveled that a man would be on the street rightly dividing the Word of God and seeking those who might be showed how it is that they too can come into the Kingdom of God. She had never seen such a thing, nobody teached her that this is our duty as commanded by Holy God and when she saw it, of course it clicked, by the Holy Spirit of God. She has spent her time under wicked preaching making all men to be consumerists of God. Pray for her that she might be a 2Timothy2:1 servant among the lost women and that she break free from the 2Timothy3 curse of this generation “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power…” We, Her and I, before a thrice Holy God, made a record, a covenant with God, that she serve Him in spreading His Gospel by showing the lost from His holy word how it is that they might be saved. Please pray she follows.

    The power of God in us is real. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

    Your dumbed down, low IQ, hyper-personalized teachings and story book versions of the bible, and your IRS pastor won’t tell you about emulations. Brothers, You should find out about that.

    You want to know what’s wrong with America? One word; sin. You want to know who ruined America? 2 Timothy 3 Christians, that’s who, worthless teachers of fables and a consumerism of God.

    All across america they are teaching the children that the reason Samson lost his power of God is because he lost his hair. This is a retardedly childish story book fable of why and it’s a lie from the pit of hell. Samson lost his power because he denied God three times and broke the covenant he had made which was a three part record. He broke each part and it cost him his life. Dumbed down Consumerism indeed.

    America has broken her covenant. Woe unto her. The price upon sin is death.

    Can you show me from the Word of God how to come into the Kingdom of God? (I’m not being a smart aleck)

    Luke 17:20-21 “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

    Jesus uses terms similar to “in me” and “I in my Father” and the apostles use terms such as in Christ. Jesus came to end Temple worship and send the Holy Spirit to indwell you, to comfort you and teach you all things. The Kingdom of God is at hand by believing this Gospel and praying as best you know how, you should apologize to Father God for your sin and ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you from the punishment that you deserve. The Kingdom of God is in us, we in Christ are in the Kingdom.
    1 John 4:15 “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.”

    1) A Sinner must know that he is a lost sinner.
    1st John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the
    truth is not in us.”
    Have you ever done something that you knew in your heart you shouldn’t have? This is sin. You must know that you are a lost sinner. We are all sinners. All sin is against Holy God.
    Rom. 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
    Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Ecc. 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
    Rom. 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

    2) You must know that you are under judgment. And the price on sin is wrath and hell. You are already guilty. You know you are. Just face it.
    Revelation 20:14-15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
    Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
    Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
    Eze. 18:4 [God Says] Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
    Heb. 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

    3) You must know that you can’t save yourself. No works or being a good enough person can do it. God is the Judge therefor you can’t save yourself.
    Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
    Eph. 2:8,9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Wages are what you are paid. Your work to save yourself is of no account, it is of death.

    4) You must know that only Jesus can save you.
    John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
    Rev. 3:20 Behold, [says Jesus] I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. [If you open your heart to Him, He WILL come in.]
    John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
    Gal. 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
    John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    Knowing that it’s not a particular prayer or a Church, and that no ritual, rite, or recitation that saves us, but that we are saved by the blood of Christ Jesus on the cross, who being a perfect holy sacrifice died for our sin once for all, for by grace are ye saved by faith.

    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

    His covenant promise is available today, for whosoever, for you “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;”… If in your true and humble belief, in faith, taken on His Holy Word that by grace are ye saved through faith by our LORD Jesus Christ who wants to save you; if you believe these things and invite Him, He will come into your heart and save you this moment.

    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

    Lord Jesus, please help us to believe!

    “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” 

    5) You must know that they are saved by the grace of God, by faith in Christ through His finished work on the cross.
    Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
    Gal. 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
    Rom. 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
    Rom. 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
    John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
    John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
    John 10:28 And I [the LORD Jesus] give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
    John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    Matt 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
    Rom. 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Send me an email and let me know of your decision or any questions that you might have. It’s a lot, I know. I’m happy to help.

    Next he’ll look at phrenology.

    A better move for him would be to evict Ivanka. Ask the Secret Service to prevent her from entering any place where POTUS is, and refuse her calls, emails, and texts.

    He may get re-elected, but he’s going to have a very uncomfortable second term. Bolton tried to tell him that Islamo-wackies don’t care about economic pressures, but The Donald is convinced that it’s all about the money.

    Too bad. For a while, it was promising, eh?
