This topic has been moved to Paradise Lost.

I warned that more than a cursory glance was required before you go on ranting. It should be quite obvious that this girl is not some delusional schizophrenic.

A City on a Hill / Healings and Miracles Caught on Video

I am finding a lot of stuff while actually searching instead of just talking. I have to go for now, but I will keep looking over time. I am also aware that this is probably a fruitless venture because even though people will scream out they want evidence, they will easily cast everything aside as invalid. The Bible says that it is impossible to please God without faith and that those who will come to Him must first believe that He exists and that He will reward those who will diligently seek Him.

She claims that her inspiration as well as conversion is a product of dreams and visions. When I use the word vision it means that the world around her either disappeared or was overlaid with images or that she was actually taken to another place both being visible to  her natural eye. I am not talking about an internal imagination. As a side note I have been to her home and met her personally and more than some cursory glance that does nothing more than cast her aside will be required if you are going to post in this thread. -- CNN Interview -- Her website

A City on a Hill / A Testimony
« on: November 08, 2009, 07:46:01 pm »
The following testimony is true, take it or leave it. Please lay aside your philosophies and or beliefs and accept that I am going credit the source of this experience to Yahweh, and because this is my own private forum I have the right to do that.

While working at a customer’s house earlier this week I asked the owner how things were going. He proceeded to be honest and told me he was being falsely accused and could potentially be loosing his business. A short time later as I was finishing up the job we began to talk again. All of a sudden I felt the atmosphere around us begin to electrically charge and the hair on my arms and the back of my neck began to rise with a sensation of energy flowing through my body. I told the man that God was here to minister to him and immediately he began weeping. With tears streaming down his face I grabbed hold of his hand and began praying for him. At that moment I felt what I can only describe in literal terms as a lightning bolt hit me and then proceeds to go out through my hand into his. It was one of the most intense experiences I have ever been a part of, and it was not an experience isolated to myself. This feeling of electricity surging through my body into his lasted for several minutes as I continued to pray and observe as he and I both encountered God in a very powerful way.

I think it's a fun browser game, similar to Civilization. The best aspect, imo, is the alliances and PvP aspects of the game. I'm playing on server 75 if anybody is interested.

A City on a Hill / Forget your God!

Don't believe in my God? That's fine. Use this thread to tell me all the reasons why. I do my best to respect the beliefs of the community and limit discussions of faith to my own personal board. Please return the courtesy. If your only goal is discrediting and or attacking me on a personal level, I ask that you limit it to this thread. I don’t want every post I make being overran with philosophical arguments as to why I am wrong.

Why do I believe what I believe? With such wonderful products of the human mind purportedly proving that the existence of God is a futile venture, how would I go about trying to do that? My purpose will not be to convince you with philosophical insights, rather to relay my experience and allow you to decide for yourself.

16 I (Jesus) will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;
17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
19 After a little while the world will no longer see Me (speaking about His crucifixion and death), but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.
20 I that day you will know (Greek: have knowledge of) that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and disclose(Greek: manifest, show oneself, appear to, make known) Myself to him

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach (reveal the knowledge of the truth to) you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you (John 14.16-20, 26 NASB).

My history with this group and various members has been quite a long one, around 8 to 10 years. When I was in my mid to late teenage years I had an interest for computer related topics, in particular programming and web development. I was by no means skilled but my computer and the internet gave me a nice place of escape. Various communities gave me a social outlet while I hid away from the world. I was however sucked away from any chance at success in life and fell deeper and deeper into drug usage. This was a period in my life where I did not come around these online communities or even own a computer.

To keep the story short as possible, the end of my drug run was about a year long period in which I was shooting up methamphetamines. I was involved in burglaries, robberies, and car thefts with a man by the name of Craig Schiering. I was also heavily involved in the usage and sale of drugs with my cousin Adam Carlberg.

I ended up serving some time in the Geiger Correctional Facility, located west of Spokane Washington, for a car theft charge, properly Taking a Motor Vehicle Without the Owners Permission in the 1st degree. Roughly may of 2006 I went before a judge who said that based upon my criminal record it was her opinion that I was not to be released but should serve my time in jail so that I could possibly learn my lesson, although from her experience I would not. I then spent a period of about a month in a minimum/medium security wing awaiting my next trial in June. During this period of time I found myself heavily drawn to the Bible. I was ridiculed quite a bit because of it, but I continued to read. There came a point in my reading were I was invited to confess my belief in a Resurrected Christ named Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I proceeded to do so and at that very moment an intensely powerful presence struck the top of my head and proceeded to flow throughout my entire body. My hair was standing straight on end as what felt like electricity pulsed throughout my body in an intensely tangible way. I had previously held a strong opinion that Jesus, and religion was just mans method of controlling people. I did not discount the existence of a God, but refused to accept religion. After this first experience I would have the same presence come upon me in very tangible ways and I would passionately cry and ask God for forgiveness for all I had done. I asked that He would help me, and that He would give me a place to go so that I would not wind up back on the streets and into the drugs. I used to cry from time to time as I stuck the needle into my arm, because for the first time in my life I knew that something had a hold of me that I did not think I could get free of. About a week after that first encounter with God through the mediation of Jesus, I went before the same judge. She looked me in the eyes and said that she was going against her better judgment but something seemed different about me so she was going to release me and let me go through my trial on the outside. Six days later I was walking out the front gates, and I was scared of what was going to happen to me to be honest. I was terrified of the drugs and life I was living. I walked over to the bus stop and seconds had gone by when a man by the name of Adrian Simila, the leading minister of the Lords Ranch Christian Discipleship Ministry, was driving by, pulled over and proceeded to offer me a place to live as long as I was willing to be raised up in the Christian Faith.

I accepted his offer and took it as God’s response to my prayer for a safe place to go. A month after being at this ranch I wound back up on the streets with my cousin Adam. We ripped off a restaurant and ended up spending a large part of the night in a drug house shooting up heroin. The next morning I went to my step mothers house and she hysterically kicked me out of her place telling me she had received a phone call from the restaurant I had ripped off and she could tell by my look that I was back on the drugs. I slept in my car that night freaked out because a girl who worked at the restaurant knew me from back in high school and was threatening to turn me into the police. I was pending trial on a felony car theft charge. I was the only one in my car, parked in a vacant field in an industrial part of town when I heard a voice say to me, “I am not going to let you get away with the things you used to get away with.” I was gripped with terror and cried out for God to forgive me and told Him I would go back to the ranch. When I was pulling back into the Lords Ranch a few days later the same voice spoke to me again saying, “Now honor me and stay were I put you.” The restaurant ended up going out of business a few weeks later and nothing ever came of the incident.

That same day when I sat down on a couch in the main building to watch the local news I saw that Craig Schiering had been shot in the side of the head and his charred body found in a burn pile while I was in jail, and I have recently found out that my cousin Adam Carlberg died of a drug overdose roughly a year after I went back to the ranch. I link to an spokesman review article concerning Craig’s murder can be found here

I have since that time had numerous mystical, very tangible, encounters with God. I have been free from the methamphetamines for about three years now and have no desire to go back. God has given me a very real experience that is greater than that of the drugs and replaced it within both my mental and cellular memory. I take God at His Word and engage it by faith, and regularly see it come to pass. The Holy Spirit reveals the knowledge of God to me through my spirit, and as I grow and learn about Christ my life is further changed and my passion to live for Him grows stronger.

All of this came around because I was broken enough, and willing to believe God’s Word. That Jesus Christ had been resurrected from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of God. That He requires my allegiance and submission to His Lordship. That I am to repent by turning from my ways and seek God that I may learn His, and that I am to come to Him on His terms and not my own. That He would give me His Holy Spirit, and change me into something new over a process of time, and in the time appointed I would share in a resurrection of my own where I will live for eternity in a glorified body, if I persist in the faith. I continue to experience this promised change, and the power that makes it possible.

A person may be able to come up with an argument, but I have a past and ongoing experience that can never be taken away from me.

A City on a Hill / The Fruit of the Vine (Poetry)
« on: October 01, 2009, 01:34:49 am »
An eternal hand closes around the grape as it walks a warn down rut of a path
The love of God being pressed out of a seed not open to bribery
Offspring of the bondwoman carry about golden tablets engraved with new laws
The rejected grape never satisfying its righteous requirement
As its blood flows from the winepress vat
There is no room for boasting in its old skin
A lifeless stare gazes into the eyes of its Redemption
At last faith can have its way

A City on a Hill / Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
« on: September 29, 2009, 10:58:04 pm »
Quote from: Deuce&Quota
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

I have been curious about your signature since I first read it, and I've finally come a crossed it's source...

Quote from: Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptorwell those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'

...Or perhaps you are just quoting from the inscription found on the base of a statue of Ramesses II, the 19th dynasty Pharaoh of ancient Egypt, in which this poem is in some way thought to have been inspired.

In either case here is a poem of my own:
Quote from: Tuberload
From the pit you weep most arrogant of men
Disintegration of works crumbling with time
There is One who sits in the heavens and laughs
As the world watches a fools arrogance unwind

1. Pathologically incoherent, repetitious speech.
2. Incessant or compulsive talkativeness; wearisome volubility.

By his own measure, he is a man of many contradictions, beginning with the fact that he is famous as a listener but suffers from a touch of logorrhea. He is so voluble that one wonders how his subjects get a word in edgewise.

Didn't know what to think of it at first, but once it got a little further into the plot the uniqueness of the film began appealing to my need for something original. Unquestionably one of the more foreign movies I’ve seen as of late. The gore was off the charts but the excessive usage of the f*** word a spot much for my liking. I found myself emotionally attached with a nice flow of adrenaline and anticipation. All in all I like it.
