There has been a quake at Chili's?

Their chicken quesadilla is my favorite -- hope they still got it.

But why? Religion does not believe in randomness. What's the wrath? explain.

Events like this one has several messages and lessons.
  1. Don't be alarmed, God is in control
  2. The need to call people to repentance
  3. Most people will be perplexed ....don't be surprised
  4. Mockers do what they do best.....mock
  5. As this happened expectantly, and like the people of Noah's time, so will it be with the coming of the Lord.....only more grandiose.

That does'nt mean we off our post, who told YOU that? You're wrong! WE take our order's from the Most High! And if that means I sink while trying to SAVE YOU, I KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT, WITHOUT-A-DOUBT- HE LIVES, so I shall too, live again!

Do you not understand? It's not about me, but you, and them, and those...that still need Christ? How difficult is it to understand that?

you don't know what a sinking feeling is? you can't hear it in the original post? who's talking about taking orders? who said he doesn't live? who are you fighting while you are looking at my post? right now you are off course and sinking, but you can't tell can you?



try and stay with the first post darling, and stop trying to swing at me cause I'm over here.

So with this, they refuse to believe he exist and and blame "natural disasters" on every devastation that has happened upon the earth. When the real person they should be pointing fingers at and questioning if he exist or not is Satan himself.
So basically you're saying that God, more often than not, allows Satan free reign on the people of the world. Horrible natural disasters occur every year in many parts of the world, so either it's purely natural and has nothing to do with the supernatural, or God is doing it to punish mankind, or God is allowing Satan to do it to punish mankind. Am I leaving out any other possibilities?

Ever since the invention of religion people have been led to believe that they're living in the "end times."

Peoples' personal arrogance leads them to believe that Jesus, Yahweh, Mohammed, Buddha, space aliens, the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, Bigfoot, etc. is coming back in their lifetime. Relax, it's not going to happen. Life goes on.

YES! Crying and screaming to get the attention of the lost.....and confused and the naysayers, so forth so on....


And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.


HALLELUJAH! Our redemption draws near! That's what it's ALL ABOUT!! PERIOD..........................FINAL ANSWER!!
