    Re: Reminder: God does not hear the prayers of sinners.

    It's Memorial Day in the U.S. when people go to cemeteries and put flowers on graves.

    There are ceremonies to honor the dead who fought in wars. In years past I was often asked to speak at these events. I've come to think the reason I'm not invited anymore is that I always pointed out prayers for the fallen do not include atheist soldiers. Christians in name only somehow think it is not appropriate to point out this truth.

    The atheist symbol should be taken off headstones so all of us feel better about Memorial Day.

    It must be really strange for God. The celestial phone rings - He picks it up and...SILENCE!

    God: Hello... hello? ... Is there someone there? Someone who wants to accept Me?

    [Silence]

    Whilst down on Earth, there's some sinner jabbering his heart out about a cargo of orphan kittens drowning is a terrible truck accident!

    Had that sinner only been a True Christian, God would have dried up the river and found foster mothers for each and every kitten! Because God is always there when you need Him!

    The verse from Genesis above is the first recorded instance of a death in the Bible. And it was done by God's Hand directly to provide both a blood sacrifice to cover the first humans' sin and provide proper covering for those sinful bodies.
    How anyone can speak of God and think to worship Him without acknowledging the shame of nudity is beyond me. But that's how it is with deluded souls who think that God answers their prayers.
    Really, I should not be sarcastic, but sometimes I can't resist. To any nudist who thinks he/she can pray his way out of purgatory, no chance pal.

    Why would He do that if nudity were not a disgrace?

    Oh, yes! Dear Brother Mayor Hold, I have no doubt that you are 100% correct here. Considering the way that those Cathyolicks are not people, it would not surprise me if they end up starting nudist activities somewhere -- like the church in the attached video clip!

    II Timothy 3:5 " Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

    II Corinthians 4:4 "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of , who is the image of , should shine unto them."

    Yes sinners, pray all you want. The truth is your time might be better spent by taking up tennis.

    I am not a sinner. I am righteous.

    Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. (Romans 4:8)


    No sinner will enter the Kingdom. A saved person may still act like a sinner, but he no longer is one. A person must only realize he is a sinner to get saved. We are dead to sin.
    I would like to have my glorified body now. Thanks God we'll get at the rapture.



    [FONT=&quot]Our glorified body will be perfect like we are!


    I used to teach that saved people are still sinners, which is not biblical. Luckily I got it right.

    Re: Reminder: God does not hear the prayers of sinners.

    God simply cannot be bothered listening to the constant and often lies of sinners. Why should He care about people that have shown to not care about Him? There is good reason there are True Christians™ and riff-raff.
    Psalm 119:1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
    Psalm 119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
    Psalm 119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

    1st John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

    Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

    Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
    Romans 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
    Romans 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

    John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
    (Jesus took the sin away from the sinner instead of casting the first stone)

    2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
    Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,


    Now, that is all well and good for those of us that follow God and do not waiver. It is not something that you become (A True Christian™) with a wave of a wand and a little fairy dust. No, it is genuine commitment of mind and body.

    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:

    1st John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

    Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.



    No, to begin the road to True Salavation™ a person must first drop to his knees with his Pastor and take in the Thick Love of Jesus¬©, gulping it in, swallowing every drop. Only when the Pastor has been satisfied completely and is pleased with the sinners efforts, will the Pastor speak to Him and 'put in the Good Word'. Only then might God listen. Even then, it is rare.
    Genesis 8:21And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

    Psalm 51:5
    Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

    1st Kings 8:46 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

    2nd Chronicles 6:36 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near;

    Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

    Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

    Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    Mark 7:22
    Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
    Mark 7:23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

    Gotcha? Only idolators of evil intent make such claims.

    Christians do not sin. Christians are commanded to be perfect.

    And there are not degrees of perfection.
    Philippians 4:12-13 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    Re: Reminder: God does not hear the prayers of sinners.

    All people are sinners, my friend. But not all are viewed as sinful in the eyes of God.

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)




    This means that God does not mean hear the unsaved. We find out in Romans 7:14-25 that the Apostle Paul was struggling with sin.



    And it's clear that a Christian has two natures. Watch those sermons:




    God hates hypocrisy (1 John 1:8)

    Re: Reminder: God does not hear the prayers of sinners.

    I've been sharing the wonderful message of Jesus and His love recently and admiring some of the fashion designs from the 16th century. Elizabeth I was Queen of America and I hope it's OK just to call her the Queen; she certainly had a way with papists! Her dad was rather lively too, perhaps a little too lively where the Boleyn sisters were concerned, but anyway the extorted loot was reclaimed from the monasteries and other establishments beholden to Rome and good riddance to the lot of them. One or two little hiccups but the Queen knew what she was doing and of course the Spaniards were popish heretics as well, which fact did not escape her notice and she didn't care a fig for the pope's line! I will not mention the French, but they were all herded into Quebec so things turned out OK and the scene was set for America to become a Christian country.

    My point being that in those monasteries (and friaries and whatever nun's dormitories are called and abbeys) due to no-one would believe the nonsense their scam was based on unless it was pumped into them day and night from infancy, a strict regime of prayer..which didn't work..was enforced. Sleep deprivation as well as interrupted waking pursuits was not merely the outcome but the intention behind their obnoxious system of brainwashing and indoctrination. Briefly:
    Matins middle of the night at some time
    Lauds 3 a.m.
    Prime 6 a.m.
    Terce 9 a.m.
    Sext 12 p.m.
    None 3 p.m.
    Vespers 6 p.m.
    Compline 9 p.m.

    STOP DOING THAT or WAKE UP; GET IN HERE AND START MUMBLING BABIES ARE IN LIMBO AND MRS OSBALDESTON HASN'T RUN OUTA MONEY YET SO HER HUSBAND (deceased) STAYS IN PURGATORY AND I THINK SHE'S ABOUT TO HAND OVER THE HOUSE. POPE. POPE. POPE.

    And just when you're about to close the weary eye to sleep perchance to dream

    OI! OI, YOU!! IT'S 3 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING!!! WOD’DYA THINK YA DOIN’ ZZZ? ZZZ THIS! GET. UP. GET. IN. THERE. FOLLOW. THE. SOUND. OF. THE. BELL.

    but not only were they all shut down and their loot ransacked and everyone got fired but Mrs Osbaldeston twigged the racket and so did everyone else.

    Islam brings us the same system. Numerous hours of prayer, hideous screeching from minarets, spiritually butchered at birth, brainwashed from infancy: their false prayers no more save the wretched nations where such nonsense prevails than false prayer saved the monasteries or the Spaniards or the French from getting bounced. This is what happens when people follow false teachings. It's an open secret now that there never was a Limbo and the clerics were lying about getting messages from Limbo because obviously if Limbo doesn't exist no-one can get a message from Limbo. Mohammedans can't seem to murder one another quick enough to stop catastrophic mayhem destroying their society, an activity they're even more committed to than destroying ours from the look of things and what do both these cults have in common? Clockwork prayer cycles enforced by clerics, reinforced by brainwashing and indoctrination from the cradle.

    It struck me at once. Hopefully others will see when this is taking place in the modern era and speak out. We don't want the papists in authority ever again or any others of that ilk whatever they call themselves.

    I noticed that some of the brocades were nicely done and thought the lacing was a better way to get a garment to preserve modesty and fit well at the same time. The style could well come back with modern fabrics, I thought. Let's make sure that's all that comes back!

    In Christ.
