Spiritual But Not Religious, Just Inane
Taki´s Magazine, by Joe Bob Briggs

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/8/2018 10:57:20 AM

NEW YORK—“I’m spiritual but not religious.” (Snip) Why do people say this? Yes, we know you’re spiritual. Everybody is spiritual. Mafia hitmen are spiritual. We’re all made up of body, soul, and spirit. So why are you telling me about it? Or maybe you mean “spiritual” in the sense of the old “Negro spirituals,” meaning songs about Jesus—but no, we have to rule that one out because that would probably require a choir, which would require a church, which would require something religious. But wait! There’s actually a Wikipedia entry called “Spirituality,” so maybe some spiritual-but-not-religious Ph.D.s from Jonathan Livingston

Seems like "spiritual, not religious" means I worship myself. How convenient, as the Church Lady would say.

I´m deeply "Spiritual", meaning i deeply believe in God and the very spirit of Jesus the Living Christ. But, I have rejected all religions that ask for money. I happen to be an anti-Mammonite. In so doing, I like to think that makes me a worshiper of the Spirit called Jesus, who was also a strict anti-Mammonite. I believe Judas founded all other man-made "money" religions because he alone rejected Christ for money. It is my personal belief that Paul (Saul) carried on the Judas tradition- Paul loved that money. Just read the story of how the Apostles behaved over Ananias and his poor wife Sapphira (Acts 5). Then ask yourself, "What would Jesus have done?" But, do not get me wrong- each to his or her own. God does the judging, not me.

See, it´s not quite as simple as Joe Bob Briggs says it is.

#2 As a christian, as I get older and study the bible more I have become more spiritual and less "religious" in the church sense and believe in the individual relationship with Christ. I have less and less faith in what Churches are trying to teach us about God, Christ and faith. As you pointed out, many Churches are about the money now! They have watered down the Christian faith to get more people to join and donate money.

#2, how can a church operate without money? Don´t pastors deserve to be paid? There is also the cost of maintaining the building, heating, a/c, etc. Money is also used to support missions and outreach. Giving is, or should be, voluntary. Don´t give if you don´t want to but your position is neither Biblical nor sensible.

Well, I often say I´m not very religious. What I mean is that I have little use for the dogma of most mainstream religions. Neither am I a New Age religious navel gazer. My spirituality is pretty simple. I believe in Christ as our Saviour and the words he left to guide us in the bible. I also believe that people that come to Christ are moved to express that relationship in their lives. HOW that is done is very personal.

Therefore, I have no problem with an individual being personally called to support "Social Justice" (which I see as a political activity) but I don´t think it is the church´s job to become a "Social Justice" center. Nor do I want to be looked down on by the "church" because I am not interested in it. Nor do I want to be lectured in church about Climate Change.

Support for Soup kitchens, blood drives, disaster relief efforts, Habitat for Humanity, Women´s Shelters, Walks for Hunger or Breast Cancer, etc. - Great! Those who choose to support these things come forward.

It´s a personal and very tricky topic.

Pardon my 2nd, please: Matt 6:28-

I did not say churches can not have money. Certainly, to help the poor, they should have it. But, when the church begs money and then you see the pastor driving around in a brand new Lexus, there is a disconnect. What did Jesus get paid? Is there a beckoning of a golden church to God or to money? If Jesus Christ were to return today, would he be wearing a $9,000.00 Armani suit and driving a Mercedes? One has to wonder, who would know him? Who would invite him into their home for a meal? Would the rich or the poor be the ones to recognize him first?

All I am saying is, when a religion wraps it´s arms around Mammon, is their much room left for the humble teachings of Christ? Ask this: Which is taught more often in the religion; the teachings of Jesus Christ who rejected money or the teachings of the man called Paul (Saul) who adored money?

Will God not provide if the church is doing His works? Is that faith in God or is fiath constantly demanding cold hard cash for golden chandeliers and plush carpets?

I know, this is off topic and wrong to discuss here. And I do offer my sincere apologies to Lucianne.

#2/11 is SO wrong about his assertions. Ananias and "his poor wife, Sapphira" were condemned for LYING to the Holy Spirit when they gave money to the church from selling their property and said it was all they had received: Acts 5:4 "Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.” BTW, it was GOD who killed these "poor" people, so I just guess GOD had a problem with what they had done!
As for Paul/Saul, he was the one who stated in 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils." He also said, "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." Philippians 4:12. In fact, he was known to stay with tent makers when he traveled and helped pay for his keep. And, he preached in Corinth "free of charge" 1 Cor. 9:18; 2 Cor 11:8; 12:14. But, I suppose Paul was like so many preachers today and only worked 1 or 2 days a week! s/ I agree that some preachers, esp. in huge churches or televangelists, have problems with greed. Paul warned that false teachers were "teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain." Titus 1:11. So, it takes a lot of work finding the Truth, but if you seek it, it will be found. Blessings.

The moonbat snowflakes of today worship at the altar of secularism.

It´s tenants are things like ecology, gender fluidity, no borders, abortion as a sacrament, homosexuality, etc, etc. Basically, anything that goes against the laws of God.

So they are "spiritual". But it´s a spirituality that is destructive and demented!!!!!

Trump to sign order to end family separation
Washington Examiner, by Gabby Morrongiello    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/20/2018 12:44:12     Post Reply
President Trump on Wednesday said he plans to sign an order halting the practice of separating families who are caught crossing into the U.S. illegally, a preemptive move that is expected to alleviate pressure on congressional Republicans who have become increasingly frustrated with the crisis at the border. "We have compassion. We want to keep families together. So I’ll be signing something in a little while that’s going to do that," Trump told reporters at the White House during a meeting with GOP lawmakers. "I´ll be doing something that´s somewhat preemptive, but is going to be matched by legislation," he

Oslo– US President Donald Trump is “no longer the moral leader of his country or the world”, the human rights watchdog, the Council of Europe, said Wednesday amid global outrage over the White House’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents. “What is happening at the (US-Mexico) border where he (Trump) is separating children from their parents is a sign that he is no longer the moral leader of his country or the world,” the Council of Europe’s secretary general, Thorbjorn Jagland, told Norwegian broadcaster TV2. “Everything he does excludes him from the role American presidents have always had,”

It´s been quite a week for me already, because I was thrown in jail and released 24 hours later. I had no counsel, no Miranda rights, and no chance for an early release. However, this wasn´t a literal jail. It reaches farther into society than the place people go when they break our criminal laws. This was Facebook jail. I´ve used Facebook since 2009, and despite my sometimes heated political rhetoric and, admittedly, outright troll-baiting, this was the first time I was censored and banned. The alleged offense?

The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration’s decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border. Lost in the debate is any acknowledgement that President Obama’s administration also used detention facilities. Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating families that arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults. The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process.

The Donald Trump administration has faced increasing leftist and establishment attacks over their strict border enforcement policies, in which all illegal border-crossers are detained and charged with crimes, while their children are moved to shelters operated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin.

So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of

Melania Trump´s approval rating is down six points after she spent a month out of the public eye following her kidney procedure, a new poll revealed. A new CNN poll shows 51 percent of Americans approve of the first lady, down from 57 percent in a poll conducted last month. Her unfavorable rating is at 29 percent, up from 27 percent last month. The survey was conducted from June 14-17, one month after Melania Trump had her kidney procedure at Walter Reed Military Medical Center, which took place on May 14 and kept her out of sight for 25 days.
