Modern Day Critics

A bunch of followers respond to Jesus as he offers them some bread and fish. This is exactly how people now would respond to such things. The Yup crowd is so pretentious and annoying.

Jesus: Prophet of Peace and Love or Purveyor of Fear and Hate?
Multitudes of Christian commentators over the past two millennia have proclaimed the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to be unsurpassed tenets of spiritual wisdom and unexcelled guidelines for living a morally responsible life.  Hundreds of millions of devout believers are absolutely convinced that they will conquer death and attain everlasting life because God sacrificed his son for their sins. They are also convinced that Jesus didn’t really die. He was restored to life and subsequently ascended to heaven to spend eternity with his father, and soon Jesus will return to Earth to judge the wicked and rapture righteous believers up to heaven with him. Countless books have been written extolling the allegedly commendable features of the “Christian worldview” and the “Christ-centered life,” but, by contrast, few authors have examined the unsavory side of Jesus’ personality and his less than-meritorious behavior and opinions. For this presentation, I’ve formulated, in a balanced fashion, two sets of ten principles based on Jesus’ pronouncements. Although his directives come from the canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), additional documentation is abundant elsewhere in the New Testament epistles and letters. The twenty precepts are listed along with the supporting Bible verses from which they derive. The cited verses and passages appear in this separate article. This scriptural evidence will enable readers to answer for themselves the binary question that is the title of this article. NB: This article is not made assuming Jesus literally indeed existed, but an evaluation of the character of the Abrahamic religious texts.

According to whether there is lace or not, the most popular ones are an HD wig, Brazilian lace front wigs, lace part wigs, lace closure wigs, Headband wigs, Bob wigs, U part wigs, etc. What is a lace part wig? A lace part wig, also known as a T-lace wig, is a wig with a t-part lace portion covering the ear-to-ear area between the edge and the parting space. You can find different parts of the wig with different widths and depths of inches of lace. Common cheap lace wigs include 4x0.75 inch, 13x5x0.75 inch, 13x5x0.5 inch, etc. What is a lace front wig? Much like the lace part wig, the lace front wig also consists of a non-adhesive wig cap and a lace part. The difference between the two wigs was that the front lace wig had a larger area of lace that covered the entire top of the head. Front lace wigs can be divided into 13x4 front lace wigs and 13x6 front lace wigs according to the size of the lace part. What are the similarities between a lace part wig and a lace front wig? Both serve as lace wigs, and the two types of wigs are very similar in construction. We'll list the specific similarities below. 1. Construction This is the most obvious similarity between the two wigs. They are both a combination of non-glue caps and lace parts. 2. Install They are usually attached with the help of glue or tape applied to the front hairline area. Once the glue has dried, secure the front lace section of the wig to the glue-coated area of the hairline to form a tight bond and secure the lace wig to your head. 3.

The lace region The lace part of a wig covers only the hairline and middle; Whereas the lace front wig has a larger lace area covering the top of your head. 2. Comfortable The rest of the lace wig is made of a less breakable material, which is less prone to tearing than the lace. However, it is also less comfortable and breathable than a lace wig with a larger lace area. 3. Versatility A lace front wig allows the wearer to choose a hairline. Lace is located in the front part of the wig, allowing the wearer to part the hair at will. But with the lace part of the wig, you always have to keep the middle part of the hair. 4. Price Wigs with more lace required more complex production processes. So the price of a former lace wig is much higher than the price of a partial lace wig. A lace part wig or a lace front wig, which is better for beginners? With a basic understanding of the similarities and differences between a partial lace wig and a pre-lace wig, here are some common problems with both types of wigs. 1.

You have to keep it in the middle of it will look unnatural. If you want side parting, a lace wig is better for you. 3. Can you part the front lace wig anywhere? Yes.

The Nonbeliever’s Guide to Bible Stories
Throughout contemporary life, references from the Bible, its stories, and characters surround us. As a result, nonbelievers may be at a loss when they encounter them in conversation, art, or literature.  Modern-day controversies such as separation of church and state, posting the Ten Commandments in government buildings, nativity displays, and other issues may not be fully understood. This represents a gap in nonbelievers’ knowledge base.  My first book was written for my daughter as a guide to successful living. Trust Your Radar: Honest Advice for Teens and Young Adults from a Surgeon, Firefighter, Police Officer, Scuba Divemaster, Golfer, and Amateur Comedian combines life lessons with fun stories from my varied careers. A second book, Trust Your Radar, Slackers’ Edition, is a streamlined version. Both works identify organized religion as “jammers” of our clear-thinking “brain radars.” My new book, The Nonbeliever’s Guide to Bible Stories, fills the information gap about the Bible for my daughter and lucky readers.  It’s a secular sprint from Genesis to Revelation, hitting the characters, stories, occasional highlights, numerous lowlights, and famous quotes (featured in italics).  Nonbelievers should have some concept of the religious fairy tales being foisted upon their believing peers. At a minimum, just to get all the jokes.  Read the full story https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/12/the-nonbelievers-guide-to-bible-stories.html

I HEARD A RUMOR
If you arent familar yet with the Parable of The Ten Virgins/Bridesmaids, please take time to read it carefully first: Matthew 25:1-13 1. "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 5. 6. "At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' 7. "Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.' 9. "'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' 10. "But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. 11. "Later the others also came. 'Lord, Lord,' they said, 'open the door for us!' 12. "But he replied, 'Truly I tell you, I don't know you.' 13. "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. Please do take note that the raptured christians are represented as The Bride of Christ throughout the New Testament. This has also been confirmed by the apostle Paul. 2 Corinthians 11:2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. In The Parable of The Ten Virgins / Bridesmaids, what is being illustrated is the unpreparedness of many christians and the preparedness of a few, at the return of Jesus in the Blessed Hope event (Titus 2:13), or what many of us also know as the rapture. This situation cannot be illustrated if the bride is used to represent christians because in a wedding there is only one bride. And so the bridesmaids were used in this parable to represent christians. NOW ABOUT THIS RUMOR... I heard that many pastors and teachers are claiming that MATTHEW 25:1-13 HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CHURCH / CHRISTIANS, AND THAT IT IS MEANT FOR THE JEWS. This is an outright shameless and intentional misinterpretation (shameful really). This parable is clearly not about the jews nor are they for the jews for the following obvious reasons: (1) Jesus had clearly referred to Himself as The Bridegroom in The Gospels: Matthew 9:14-15 14. Then John's disciples came and asked him, "How is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?" 15. Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast. (2) In the Parable of The Ten Virgins, the bridegroom has already went away after proposing, and is preparing an abode for Him and His Bride. John 14:2-3 2. My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (3) The Ten Virgins/Bridesmaids are in the business of waiting for The Bridegroom. Philippians 3:20-21 20. But our citizenship is IN HEAVEN. AND WE EAGERLY AWAIT OUR SAVIOR FROM THERE (FROM HEAVEN), the Lord Jesus Christ, 21. who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, WILL TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODIES SO THAT THEY WILL BE LIKE HIS GLORIOUS BODY.21. 1 Thessalonians 1:10 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father WHEN OUR LORD JESUS COMES with all his holy ones. Titus 2:13 while we wait for THE BLESSED HOPE—THE APPEARING OF THE GLORY OF OUR GREAT GOD AND SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST, Jude 1:21 keep yourselves in God's love AS YOU WAIT FOR THE MERCY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO BRING YOU TO ETERNAL LIFE. As clearly seen in the above Bible verses, christians are exectly in the business of waiting for the return of Jesus The Bridegroom (via the blessed hope event, or what is more commonly known as the rapture event). The jews ARE NOT in the business of waiting for THE RETURN OF THE BRIDEGROOM, JESUS CHRIST. Infact, they rejected His "proposal" the first time He came on earth. They rejected Jesus as their long awaited Messiah. They have kept on rejecting Him even until He left. Even to this day, the jews havent acknowledged that Jesus is actually their promised Messiah. The jews even forbid the reading of Isaiah 53 among themselves because it is a glaring undeniable description of Jesus as their promised Messiah. And so why would anyone think or believe that the jews are in the business of waiting for the return of Jesus whom they have rejected in the first place? When Jesus came as The Bridegroom and "proposed", the jews rejected Him! So who propagated this false teaching that Matthew 25 has nothing to do with the christians? Again this is such a shame, but it has to be laid out in the open. I personally believe without a shadow of a doubt that this FALSE TEACHING THAT MATTHEW 25 HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTIANS, was and is currently BEING PROPAGATED BY PASTORS AND TEACHERS WHO PRIORITIZE CHURCH MEMBERSHIP/INCOME/PRESTIGE than rightly dividing Gods Word. PASTORS, PREACHERS AND TEACHERS WHO PROPAGATE THIS FALSE TEACHING ARE MORE AFRAID OF OFFENDING PEOPLE THAN OFFENDING GOD. They are more afraid of a decline in tithes and offerings, and a decline in their prestige as a pastor/teacher of a large congregation; they are more afraid of those, than they are afraid of offending God by giving people false hopes through false teachings. They would rather teach that all christians will be saved, regardless if theyre lukewarm or backslidden or living in sin or are deepdown hateful, unforgiving, rebellious or unrepentant. Otherwise, if they tell them the truth, many of their church members might leave and find some other pastor/preacher who can "tickle their ears". And because their church membership will decline, their church income as well as their "prestigious reputation" will decline as well. They are more afraid of the goats and the tares who are "tithers" leaving their church; than telling them the truth and give these people a chance to truly repent and therefore be truly ready for the retirn of Jesus. Every pastor/preacher is a watchman to his congregation/church members. A watchmans main job is to warn those under his care of an impending danger. If he is not able to do this then he has failed in his job. There is a clear instruction and warning in the Old Testament given to watchmen. Believe it or not, this applies to christian pastors and preachers: EZEKIEL'S CALL AS A WATCHMAN (THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PASTORS AND TEACHERS WHO SERVE AS WATCHMEN TO THOSE UNDER THEIR CARE) Ezekiel 33:1-9 1. The word of the Lord came to me: 2. "Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: 'When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, 3. and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, 4. then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head. 5. Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. 6. BUT IF THE WATCHMAN SEES THE SWORD COMING AND DOES NOT BLOW THE TRUMPET TO WARN THE PEOPLE AND THE SWORD COMES AND TAKE SOMEONE'S LIFE, THAT PERSON'S LIFE WILL BE TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN, BUT I WILL HOLD THE WATCHMAN ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR BLOOD.' 7. "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 8. When I say to the wicked, 'You wicked person, you will surely die,' and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 9. But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved. 10. "Son of man, say to the Israelites, 'This is what you are saying: "Our offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of them. How then can we live?"' 11. Say to them, 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I TAKE NO PLEASURE IN THE DEATH OF THE WICKED, BUT RATHER THAT THEY TURN FROM THEIR WAYS AND LIVE. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?' In Ezekiel 33:1-11, it is very clear that God takes no please in the death of the wicked. God takes no pleasure seeing the backslidden, the lukewarm, those living in sin and in hypocrosy ot those that are deepdown rebellious and unrepentant; God takes no pleasure seeing them continue into their path towards destruction. And so as their watchmen, if you are their pastor or teacher, you must warn them. You must tell them the truth even if is it bitter to their taste, for their own good. Gods Word says if you see harm coming to those under your care and you did not warn them - their blood will be on yout hands. In The Parable of the Weeds, or what others know as The Parable of the Wheats and the Tares (Matthew 13:24-30), yes we are instructed to not pull out the weeds from the field and to let them grow together with the wheats. But do take note that giving them warning is not the same as pulling them out. And if you have given them warning and they decide to leave your church, that is not the same as pulling them out. God would rather see them given warnings so as to be given a chance to truly repent and to not continue in their path towards destruction; than see them not leave your church and yet is given a false hope that inspite of their lukewarmness, or of a backslidden state, or of them living in sin, or of them deepdown being unrepentant or rebellious - a false hope that in the end, theyll still be able to join the rapture. James 3:1 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. (If you answer the call to become a teacher, a preacher or a pastor; make sure that you love and fear God more than anything or anyone, and that you will never twist, waterdown, nor diminish Gods Word in favor of your listeners.) Prayer: Dear Lord give us the courage and wisdom to warn those who are in the path towards destruction. Teach us to fear You more than anything else and at the same time to love You more than anything else. May you bless and annoint us as we speak the truth. You take no pleasure seeing anyone continue into the path of their destruction and so we will be faithful to Your will to tirelessly warn others as much as we can by Your Spirit of Grace and Truth and Wisdom and Courage. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. #RaptureReady Matthew 25:1-13 is all about christians awaiting for the return of Jesus. A situation where many will be unprepared. And so it is a reminder and a warning to christians to always be prepared for The Lords imminent return. This parable has nothing to do with the jews.
