When lawmakers debate whether there is more than two genders you know the country is in a bad way. The USA and the Western world has gone crazy. We elect politicians that have swallowed the PC culture of the day and will implement it no matter what the public may believe. Live with it! The politician loves to spout the ‘science is in’ even when true science goes against their lunatic beliefs. Now, ‘A debate on the House floor over the Equality Act, a bill that would extend civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community, spilled over into the halls of Congress on Wednesday.
Rep. Marie Newman, D-Ill., who has a transgender daughter, raised a transgender pride flag outside her office across the hall from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who responded to Newman by hanging a sign that read: “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. Trust The Science!”
During the floor debate on the Equality Act, Greene made a motion to adjourn in an effort to block consideration of the bill because she claimed it would put the rights of transgender Americans above those of women and children, particularly when it comes to sports. “Biological women cannot compete against biological men,” she said. “Biological little girls cannot compete against biological little boys, and they shouldn’t have to.”
Earlier in the week, the freshman congresswoman, who was stripped of her committee memberships for promoting false and extremist views, called the Equality Act “a direct attack on God’s creation” that would ensure “men who dress and think they are women will have rights over all real girls and women.”
Newman, who is also a freshman congresswoman, gave an impassioned speech on the House floor in support of transgender rights.
“I rise today on behalf of the millions of Americans who continue to be denied housing, education, public services and much, much more because they identify as members of the LGBTQ community,” Newman said. “Americans like my own daughter, who years ago bravely came out to her parents as transgender. I knew from that day on, my daughter would be living in a nation where [in] most of its states, she could be discriminated against, merely because of who she is.”
As video of Newman’s speech went viral, Greene responded with a tweet in which she refused to refer to the Illinois congresswoman’s daughter as a woman.
“As mothers, we all love and support our children,” Greene wrote. “But your biological son does NOT belong in my daughters’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams.”
Newman tweeted a video of herself hoisting the flag with a message for her GOP counterpart.
“Our neighbor, @RepMTG, tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is ‘disgusting, immoral, and evil,’” Newman wrote. “Thought we’d put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door.”
Greene then put up the poster outside her office.
“Our neighbor, @RepMarieNewman, wants to pass the so-called ‘Equality’ Act to destroy women’s rights and religious freedoms,” Greene tweeted. “Thought we’d put up ours so she can look at it every time she opens her door.”
The poster stunt was criticized by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Rep. Sean Casten, D-Ill., called Greene’s sign “sickening, pathetic, unimaginably cruel.”
“This hate is exactly why the #EqualityAct is necessary and what we must protect @RepMarieNewman’s daughter and all our LGBTQ+ loved ones against,” Casten tweeted.
“This is sad and I’m sorry this happened,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., tweeted Wednesday night. “Rep. Newmans daughter is transgender, and this video and tweet represents the hate and fame driven politics of self-promotion at all evil costs. This garbage must end.”
“Your sign is incorrect because it’s not what the science says,” Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., wrote on Twitter. “‘The science is clear and conclusive: sex is not binary, transgender people are real.’”
At her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Greene’s stunt a “sad event” that illustrates the need for Congress to pass the Equality Act.
“It’s necessary,” Pelosi said. “I wish it weren’t. It breaks my heart that it is.”’https://www.aol.com/news/marjorie-taylor-greene-escalates-lgbtq-154934892.html
The only way for America to go when this kind of lunacy takes over is further into the camp called crazy!
The following links will take you to a couple of videos worth a watch by a conservative. The Left is out to destroy life as we once knew it. This means a change for both those conservatives who identify as born again Christians and those conservatives who do not.
‘They don’t want you to think critically, they don’t want you to read and now they are removing books they deem “hate speech”. How long until the Constitution and Declaration of Independence are ruled hate speech or terrorist manifestos?’
‘After some noise was made on social media about possible techniques deployed by the Coca-Cola company in regards to their sensitivity training for employees, Jessie Jane Duff, Paris Dennard and Newsmax TV’s John Bachman discuss. – via John Bachman Now, weekdays at 12PM ET on Newsmax TV’
This video speaks concerning ‘Pelosi’s proposition to end the Republic through a ‘Red Reformation’ which would eliminate the electoral college, constitutionalize unverifiable voting, and disqualify “unpatriotic” Americans who refuse to submit to the Communist China way.

‘It seems people don’t get embarrassed anymore. The case of Jeffrey Toobin caught masturbating during a Zoom video chat with colleagues from the New Yorker, and WNYC radio comes to mind. Toobin is a famous lawyer, bestselling author, writer for the prestigious The New Yorker, and legal analyst for CNN.
The media discussed whether or not this would destroy his career since it was “a mistake”; and “he accidentally exposed himself.” No one tried to explain how he could accidentally masturbate. Media types wondered if Toobin would be fired or suspended by the New Yorker and CNN; and “has he lost all credibility?” To their credit, both the New Yorker and CNN finally fired him.
There should have been no doubt as to him getting fired.
I find the above reaction shocking. In bygone years, such a person would have crawled into a hole of humiliation and never surfaced except for his funeral. But with Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, and many others, a simple statement about “making a mistake,” “planning to get treatment,” or “spending more time with the family” seems to be sufficient. Then, back into the limelight. All is forgiven if not forgotten.
We have seen this temporary embarrassment of a vast number of Hollywood type females who slept with the boss. Then 20 years later, they decide the mutual fornication was actually rape and deserving of a financial payoff which amounts to deferred compensation for a job or jobs well done.
All this may be a weakness in our culture, education, morality, religion, or a combination of all.
I’ve been reading French History for the last few months during my “non-essential” reading at night. I recently read that King Louis XV was so corrupt, so immoral, so arrogant, so thoughtless, so callous, that he presented his mistress at court to his wife, the queen. Everyone knew he had a mistress, in fact, many mistresses, but to introduce her to his wife—at court was simply beyond the pale.
That’s where we are today. People make stupid statements, take outrageous positions, and are never embarrassed by acting so foolishly. They do not see a need for repentance, restitution, and return to common sense, and they aren’t even embarrassed with their actions.
It is shocking, even scandalous to see major corporations, public schools (that was public schools), most of the mainstream media, major sports’ leagues, and famous (don’t ask for what) entertainers support the totally discredited Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Nation of Islam, etc., groups. Unprincipled people don’t have the ability to blush at their prejudices. Obviously, the bar has been continuously lowered to where there is no bar.
Truth and dignity don’t seem to matter to most people anymore.
Truth lies wounded if not dead in the streets, as Isaiah reported.
In the late 1970s, many leading Democrats in California and Washington, D.C., were loud defenders and promoters of the Rev. Jim Jones. Jim was from Indianapolis as I was for 30 years, so I knew about Jim. He was a local (loco) preacher of the People’s Temple Christian (Disciples) Church on the near north side. He did the wedding of one of my oldest friends before Jones became a public nuisance.
Jim was a white, ordained preacher whose teaching and theology would make Marx, Lenin, and Stalin stand up and cheer. He used Blacks to build his wacky kingdom in Indianapolis.
Jim left Indiana for the eternal sunshine of California and set up camp in Redwood Valley. He started churches in three cities gaining enormous power with the help of leftist Democrats, local and national. While in Redwood Valley, Jim taught public high school. During classes, he taught that little boys should be taught to masturbate. (I wonder if Toobin is from California.) Jones also taught against the profit motive and encouraged Socialism. The school system could not fire him because of his political pull in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
None of the Democrats he used (and who used him) ever expressed any shame or embarrassment over Jim’s outrageous claims of faith healings (fabricated) and building healthy families (false).
Then, Jim took his whole gang of over 900 followers to remote Guyana in 1977 after promising them it was a paradise. It became a nightmare. It took constant backbreaking work to get vegetables to grow in the jungle environment. The people were starving. No complaining was permitted. Word finally got to Congressman Leo Ryan of California, who led a media crew and some cult members’ relatives to inspect the foreign paradise.
After their visit, Ryan (who had been dazzled and deceived by Jones), the media crew, and 14 defectors went to the airstrip to board two planes for their home departure. While the visitors prepared to board their small plane, the cultists began shooting, killing Ryan, three of the media, and one defector.
Even nut case Jones knew it was over, so he put his final plan into play on November 18, 1978. He commanded his followers to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. Some of them weren’t sure this was real until they “saw the babies frothing at the mouth and writhing” and realized what was going on. Those who refused to drink the Kool-Aid were shot. Over 918 died, 300 being under age 17.
Not only did his congregation drink the deadly Kool-Aid, but also major California and Washington, D.C. politicians drank the Kool-Aid long before the final scene. Willie Brown, who became Speaker of the California Assembly and mayor of San Francisco, gave Jones personal support. So did Senator Dianne Feinstein and Governor Jerry Brown, a guest speaker at Jones’ church!
Jane Fonda spoke about Jones, “setting a high standard of ethics and morality,” and Rosalynn Carter “called Jones at her husband’s behest” showing their support. President Jimmy Carter’s running mate Walter Mondale met with Jones in San Francisco.
Yet, none of these leading Democrats felt a need to apologize or explain their association with the worst mass murder/suicide in American History! It seems no one was embarrassed.
It is also shocking and embarrassing that voters did not hold the politicians accountable.
Five-year-old Cannon Hinton was killed by a black neighbor who shot him in the head for no reason, yet the leftist media and Democrats did not show any anger, and no one is embarrassed at their silence. There were no extenuating circumstances such as a family feud or problems between the shooter and the victim.
Sorry to write this, but the black man was simply a cowardly, racist killer. A Facebook group with 20,000 members supports the killer of Cannon with claims the alleged child murderer is a “political prisoner.” They want the killer released.
The self-righteous protesters and the major media are not concerned about Cannon’s death. You see, he was white. Would it be appropriate for me to declare White Lives Matter? How about Little lives matter?
One problem is that many people, including the media, believe the first story they hear. That is obvious since the response to every celebrated shooting of a black has been premature. In every case of a police shooting a Black man, the Black was resisting arrest and often armed. You see, the media want justification for their twisting of the news like a pretzel. They need it to give themselves some credibility.
When Nick Sandmann settled his libel and slander case against the Washington Post (CNN had settled earlier), he was only a teenager at a pro-life rally who stared at a leftist nut case who banged a drum in his face. Some, who always look for issues when there are none, charged the teen with discriminating against the drumbeater who happened to be a Native American Indian. He had a special status.
Few on the left thought it essential to exercise some embarrassment, maybe even muttering an apology for harassing Nick and all the death threats—for staring without saying a word—to a drum-banging nut. No apology was made by CNN, MSNBC, or the others.
Of course, the money helps, and it looks as if Nick is or will be a rich young man.
The media reaction to the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is shocking. Many studies have proved that HCQ, when given with Azithromycin and zinc at the beginning of COVID-19, has had astounding success even with elderly patients. The only negative study, known as the VA study, was done without following the protocols. The patients that died all had the angel of death standing outside their room before treatment was begun.
Was the VA study set up to fail? After all, the CDC had promised a vaccine by the end of the year, and that vaccine would help the cause of political physicians.
I believe in a few months, major politicians and political physicians at the CDC, NIH, and WHO will be embarrassed when the use of HCQ will be unquestionable; however, don’t expect them to apologize or admit they were wrong.
It’s not in their genes—or their character.’http://donboys.cstnews.com/people-who-dont-get-embarrassed-are-without-character-courage-and-convictions
Is there a hope of salvaging the Southern Baptist Convention? Dr. Boys writes that ‘Russell Moore, head of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), is a longtime Trump hater who called upon him to “please step down and let our country heal?” Well, if he thinks America needed to heal because of Trump, I wonder what he thinks about the rotting taking place under Biden and what’s-her-name. Moore is an embarrassment and lightning rod among the rank and file of the SBC. Many consider him a lobotomized liberal.
The SBC has an illustrious past with about 48,000 churches, some significant colleges, universities, and seminaries, plus an impressive world mission’s outreach. However, it is fast becoming a haven for mixed-up blacks, mushy fundamentalists, mild evangelicals, and manly women.
And moronic pathetic, political pundits, à la Russell Moore, helping destroy a once viable organization.
The membership of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination plunged to under 15 million for the first time since 1989. Bible-believing churches are leaving to become what every church should be: independent. The pastors are leaving or closing their church checkbooks because of the group’s decades-long leftist drift.
After being encouraged by the conservative takeover in 1979, Bible preaching Baptist pastors are now pressed to explain why the convention is committing corporate suicide. Astute pastors are aware of the SBC’s controversial deadly issues—booze, sexual abuse charges, pro-Muslim advocacy, extreme Calvinism, emphasizing education at the expense of evangelism, social justice activism, women preachers, radical minority leadership, and radical progressivism led by Trump-hater Moore.
The denomination split in the 1860s when they broke away from national Baptists in the north over slavery. They are about to split again over severe issues just as definite, although not as serious as the slavery issue. One big problem is between militant Fundamentalists and mushy Fundamentalists with some very loud and pushy pastors with eyes on leadership positions in the various seminaries, cooperative mission program, etc.
It seems it is in the DNA of the SBC to make moves in the wrong direction. They did it in 1860, and they are doing it again.
While it must be acknowledged that denominations have no scriptural reason to exist, many denominational groups in their original formation and early days did an outstanding job of preaching the truth. Many SBC pastors have strongly asserted that the SBC is not a denomination, only a fellowship of cooperating churches united to be more effective in doing world missions.
Those same preachers also believe Pepsi will sell for a nickel, Bill Clinton has lived a virtuous life, Jeffrey Epstein was a misunderstood choirboy who killed himself, the coronavirus did not originate in China, and Stacey Abrams is the real governor of Georgia.
Every year the SBC grows greyer and grayer and balder and balder as the leadership is hipper and hipper, gushing over anything progressive like a teenager in his first crush.
People are dreaming if they think the old guys will vote for women preachers, reformed theology, and progressive black leadership. I see a major confrontation soon, resulting in another split.
President J. D. Greear promised to lead the convention in a different direction, and that direction was to the left. Greear teaches that Christians and Muslims worship the same God, yet Muslims do not believe in the Trinity, the sacrificial death of Christ, or His physical resurrection. Greear gives the old-timers constant heartburn. He compared homosexuality to “greed” and “boasting,” even stating that those sins are “more egregious in the eyes of God” than homosexuality.
I heard Greear say Christians should “stand up and be among the fiercest advocates for the preservation of the dignity and rights of LGBT people because we recognize that gay and lesbian people are essentially just like us.” Not like me, J.D.
He does not mention that God destroyed cities for their perversion.
Greear should be less concerned about “greed” and “boasting” and more concerned about heresy or even apostasy!
There was talk of adding many females to leadership positions at the Dallas national meeting in 2019 by the ERLC, the SBC’s political arm headed by Moore. Some even whispered of electing a woman as president of the SBC! Of course, diversity was discussed, and a black pastor led the conference, and six out of the 12 preachers were non-white.
I believe a minority CEO will run the SBC within two years, and he (or she) will run it even further to the left.
As more blacks and Hispanics achieve leadership positions, the theological and political directions will change 180 degrees. It will also be more political, rushing to the left, and it will be more charismatic. That will not be your father’s Southern Baptist Convention.
The SBC has played the Black Card for many years and has jumped into the deep end of the progressive pool. Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, declared, “Black lives do matter. We have to say that even more powerfully than #BlackLivesMatter does.” It is shocking that a highly educated and sophisticated man is so naïve.
The SBC president shocked many this summer when he urged church members to declare “black lives matter” and denounced the use of “all lives matter.” It is shocking and somewhat embarrassing that so many Baptist leaders could be so uninformed or so far left to make such a racist statement. That snapping noise you just heard was hundreds of church checkbooks being closed and pastors running from the convention into independence they left many years ago.
The convention apologized in 1995 for its past position on slavery and, in 2016, condemned the Confederate Flag and, in 2017, condemned the “alt-right,” whatever that is. The last two resolutions were the brainchild of Dwight McKissic, a popular black pastor from Texas who recently pulled out of the Southern Baptists of Texas and has threatened to leave the SBC. His church averages 1800 each Sunday, and it has a hefty bank balance, so he has maneuvered his way to be a significant voice in the SBC. He leans obviously to the left, speaks in tongues, and is a strong, even dictatorial leader, as are most black pastors—and many white pastors in independent Baptist groups.
McKissic was horrified that some SBC pastors identified with the alt-right, but he doesn’t seem to be horrified that so many black pastors are in bed with the far left. Oh, my, it is so difficult to be consistent.
McKissic was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016 and said, “I’m thoroughly convinced, the quality of life for all persons will be better under Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump. I’m voting for the highest quality of life for all Americans.” Well, the one and a half million butchered babies each year would not agree with the reverend if they were permitted to live long enough to disagree.
Thabiti Anyabwile, a black Southern Baptist pastor in Washington, DC, tweeted that “any ‘church’ that cannot denounce white supremacy without hesitancy and equivocation is a dead, Jesus denying assembly. No 2 ways about it.” However, the race-baiting Baptist did not add, “Any Baptist pastor who cannot denounce Black Lives Matter movement is a Jesus-denying assembly.” Thabiti is a vicious racist who teaches that all white people are guilty of murdering Martin Luther King, Jr. and has demanded an apology from all Whites for that “murder.”
Could Thabiti be Al Sharpton’s twin brother separated at birth? Whatever, Thabiti doesn’t mispronounce simple two-syllable words, and he wears cheaper suits than Al. But then, Al has a radio show, a television show, and almost unlimited finances from a nonprofit organization. He also has a long history of not paying his taxes. At present, he still owes $700,000 in back taxes.
The SBC declares that since each member church is independent, they can put up with significant differences, even theological deviates. However, they have removed churches in the past. The once-great Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga was removed because it started its own college and had its own mission’s program of Independent Baptist missionaries. A Georgia church was removed from the convention because of racism, but will the black racist churches be removed? Don’t bet the farm on it. You see, Blacks cannot be racists!
More than half of new SBC church plants in the past four years have been predominantly “non-Anglo.” That would be great if each church took a biblical stand.
Even without a formal split, the SBC is no longer dominated by white men with combed-over hair speaking with a distinctive southern drawl, preaching from a well-worn King James Bible.
The fading SBC and most Evangelical churches are dying because they are wallowing in diversity and are choking on heresy.’http://donboys.cstnews.com/southern-baptist-convention-haven-for-mixed-up-blacks-mushy-fundamentalists-mild-evangelicals-and-manly-women
Years ago my family and I visited the Grand Canyon. What a sight it is! The ‘Grand Canyon carves a 277-mile-long chasm through northwestern Arizona. Running from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead, the expansive landscape reveals some of the most colorful geology in the world and provides strong evidence for the global Flood.
Lateral Extent of Strata
As you look across Grand Canyon, observe the layers on both walls. The cliffs and the colors match from one side to the other. The gaps between the cliffs were once filled solid, the layers continuous, but the space in between has since been removed by erosion. The bottom flat layers are older and were deposited first; these are called Cambrian system rocks. The youngest layers are on the canyon’s rim; these are identified as Permian system rocks.An explorer carefully navigates a canyon wall trail, circa 1930Image credit: Henry G. Peabody Photographs, Greater Arizona Collection, Arizona State University Library, Tempe, AZ.
All of these layers were deposited during the rising phase of the global Flood. Powerful tsunami-like waves spread massive, continuous sedimentary layers for hundreds of miles in all directions across this part of North America. Even relatively thin layers extend across Grand Canyon.
Flat Contacts Show Little Time Between Layers
Grand Canyon’s layers are like stacked pancakes. The lowermost flat layer at Grand Canyon is called the Tapeats Sandstone. At about 200 feet thick, it makes a thin, dark brown layer from a distant view. This layer represents the first extensive Flood deposit at this location. The basal boundary of the Tapeats is a special type of unconformity1 called a nonconformity, where sedimentary rock resides on top of pre-Flood crystalline rock. This surface is also referred to as the Great Unconformity (Figure 1).Figure 1. ICR geologist Dr. Tim Clarey addresses a Grand Canyon tour group with the Great Unconformity behind himImage credit: Kevin Turley
This global phenomenon is found in countless locations where Cambrian system sedimentary layers overlie Precambrian crystalline rocks. Just below the contact, we observe metamorphic crystalline rocks that are oriented nearly vertically, but the overlying Cambrian Tapeats is horizontal. Although secular geologists claim the Precambrian rock surface here experienced over a billion years of erosion, the contact with the Tapeats is almost perfectly planar—it’s flat! Where are the gullies and chasms from billions of years of erosion?
The Redwall Limestone is Grand Canyon’s most prominent layer—a red, thick, vertical cliff that spans the middle of the exposed rock layers. It’s part of the Mississippian system. Right below it, the Muav Limestone of the Cambrian system appears a bit more grayish. The evolutionary narrative claims 160 million years of erosion occurred between these two rock units. But where are the v-shaped channel patterns that gullies and canyons should have carved on top of the Muav? Instead, one flat limestone lies flat on another nearly everywhere you look.Figure 2. Flat contact shows no erosion and thus no time between the deposition of the Muav Limestone (gray) and the overlying Redwall Limestone (red). The inset shows the Great Unconformity.Illustration by Scott Arledge
A third flat unconformity lies between the Coconino Sandstone and the Hermit Shale. If you look toward the top of the layers in the canyon, you’ll see a thin, light, tan-colored cliff on top of a dark red layer. About a million years of erosion supposedly separates these two units (Figure 2). But if they were really deposited millions of years apart, valleys and canyons should be found between each of these layers. Instead, the contact is almost perfectly flat everywhere we see it.
Badlands Topography Shows Catastrophic Carving
By examining the topography of areas that have been catastrophically restructured recently, we can estimate the effects of the Flood and compare that estimation with Grand Canyon’s topography. A mudflow following the 1982 eruption of Mount St. Helens created a steep-walled, 140-foot-deep canyon system, complete with side canyons, in a single day.2 It looks remarkably like a 1:40 scale of Grand Canyon.
And we see similar deep gorges and butte-and-basin (badlands) topography associated with the flooding that followed the bursting of Ice Age Lake Missoula. This occurred about 4,000 years ago in the American Northwest. Even secular geologists now recognize that this catastrophic megaflood created the Channeled Scablands of eastern Washington and widened the Columbia River Gorge.
Today’s processes do not form broad, flat rock layers or carve such big and clean canyons. Different processes must be responsible—catastrophic processes. Therefore, it’s reasonable to conclude that early floodwaters laid down Grand Canyon rocks while the water was rising, and the receding floodwater carved most of the Canyon.
The present narrative for Grand Canyon’s formation is insufficient. Most of today’s secular scientists assume the Colorado River slowly carved Grand Canyon over a period of six million years. But today’s flow rates simply don’t have the power to push the 1,000 cubic miles of rocks and debris all the way out to the Pacific Ocean. Even after millions of years, we should see a lot more talus and debris. Talus refers to rock piles that lean against the cliff walls where they fell. The canyon’s base looks like it was swept clean. Only catastrophic water flow and water volume many times greater than what flows there today could sculpt badlands topography and wide gaps in the canyon.3
Noah’s Flood Explains Grand Canyon
Secular interpretations still cannot adequately explain why the Colorado River cuts right through the Kaibab Uplift that formed on the western flank of the Colorado Plateau. The Kaibab Uplift has warped an arch of rock about 3,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. Water should have flowed around it, not uphill and through it.4
How do Flood geologists explain this? The year-long Flood narrative in Genesis helps us understand what we see. After sediments like the Coconino, Redwall, and Tapeats were deposited in the rising phase of the Flood, the Colorado Plateau was pushed up 5,000 feet during the receding phase of the Flood. This caused the floodwaters to drain off rapidly. Grand Canyon is on the western edge of that plateau. When packed, wet sand is lifted up, it stretches and cracks. Water naturally follows the cracks and fractures. Some of those would have run through the Kaibab Uplift to create a path for lots of water to flow downhill and carve a vast canyon.
Rapid uplift and drainage of the receding floodwaters provide both the pathway and the necessary volume of water to quickly carve Grand Canyon.4 This was all accomplished before the Ice Age began. How do we know? Because there are about 150 lava flows that originated on the Uinkaret Plateau and poured down into Grand Canyon during the Ice Age. The canyon had to exist before these lava falls poured in.5
The lateral extent of the sedimentary layers, flat contacts between the layers, and vast badlands topography all point to rapid deposition and ultra-high-volume erosion. The rocks reveal the enormity of the global Flood, and the canyon exhibits catastrophic carving from receding floodwaters. Grand Canyon is a reminder of the immense power of the judgment of the Flood.
- An unconformity is where some amount of erosion has taken place, removing a segment of the rock record. Unconformities can also occur if there was a brief hiatus in deposition. Unconformities do not imply vast amounts of time since they can form quickly as tsunami-like waves wash across the landscape, eroding the surface as they go.

Church denominations such as the Southern Baptist Convention are NOT found in the New Testament. Now SBC churches will sometimes say they are independent but if they were the following wouldn’t be an issue for a reading of Romans One answers most questions concerning creation, evolution and the sodomite, lesbian issues of today. However, in spite of God’s Word ‘Divisions over politics, race, sex abuse, and LGBTQ issues are roiling America’s largest Protestant denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), ahead of a meeting of its executive committee this week.
On the agenda are two items reflecting those divisions: A recommendation that a church in Kennesaw, Georgia, be ousted from the SBC because it accepted LGBTQ people into church membership, contravening Southern Baptist doctrine; and a report by an executive committee task force criticizing the leader of the SBC’s public policy arm, the Rev. Russell Moore. Among the grievances against Moore: His outspoken criticism of Donald Trump during Trump’s 2016 election campaign and his presidency.
Jim Conrad, the pastor of Towne View Baptist Church in Kennesaw, said he’s at peace with the likelihood that his church will be “disfellowshipped” by the executive committee during its meeting Monday and Tuesday.
But Conrad sees broader challenges for the SBC as its stances on various sensitive issues are questioned from inside and outside.’https://julieroys.com/baptists-divided/?mc_cid=26363a6f9d&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
I am an independent Baptist as the New Testament knows nothing else but independent churches. So, for those SBC folk that say they too are independent we read ‘On February 8, however, Towne View received a letter from Mike Lawson, chair of the SBC Credentials Committee, that the church’s case had been referred to the denomination’s Executive Committee in Nashville.‘ So much for independence!
‘That decision will purportedly be made at the Executive Committee’s scheduled meeting on Tuesday (Feb. 23). According to a member of the denomination staff who agreed to talk on condition of anonymity, Towne View’s fate is all but sealed.
“It’s about the bottom line, and that more churches than not in the Cobb County region would be against the acceptance of the LGBTQ community being members in their churches,” the staffer said.
Conrad said it is clear that he knows that he made the right decision, despite the loss of a third of his membership (and a third of his salary).’
Now, to top it all off the two sodomites who began all this have moved out of the area! The article continues by saying ‘The Reynolds, meanwhile, have left, moving out of the area for work reasons. John Reynolds, however, says: “We remain grateful for the experience of finding Towne View.” He said that like other groups who were once unwelcome in Baptist churches, the couple believes that “God is working in a very special way to open the door to the Baptist church community just a little wider.”’https://religionnews.com/2021/02/19/georgia-sbc-church-faces-banishment-for-accepting-lgbtq-members/
It isn’t God at work here but man as God’s Word is clear on the subject.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
The following is from a PJ Media email I recently received and it states there are at least ‘…seven things you’re not allowed to say on Facebook:
- Saying or suggesting that COVID-19 is a man-made virus or claiming that it was bioengineered. You’re allowed to say that it was studied in a lab or may have been leaked from a lab, but you can’t say it was man-made or that it is a “bioweapon.”
- You can’t say that vaccines or their ingredients are “toxic” or “poisonous.” You can’t even say that they may be “harmful” or “dangerous.”
- Claiming that “natural immunity” from having been infected with COVID-19 is safer than vaccine-acquired immunity is verboten. Saying that gaining immunity via a mild case of COVID-19 may be safer than taking the vaccine could get you booted from Facebook. Facebook wants you vaccinated, and that’s FINAL.
- You can’t say anything about a private individual having COVID-19 unless “that person has self-declared or information about their health status is publicly available.” That would, it seems, preclude you from asking your Facebook friends to pray for a parent or child who has the virus unless they’ve publicly announced it themselves.
- Also, don’t even think about posting anything that may “downplay the severity of COVID-19.” Says Facebook: “Acknowledging the existence and understanding the severity of COVID-19 is foundational to keeping people safe and aware of the dangers of this public health emergency.”
- “Discouraging good health practices” is also a no-no. Those practices include: wearing a face mask, social distancing, getting tested for COVID-19, and getting vaccinated against COVID-19. There’s no room for deviation on COVID panic-porn.
- Making “false claims” about the “safety, efficacy, ingredients, development, existence, or conspiracies related to the vaccine or vaccination program” is also forbidden. If you question the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines, you could find yourself in hot water with Zuckerberg and co.
You’re allowed to share your personal experiences about COVID-19 “in service of [Facebook’s] value of giving people voice”—unless, that is, you “promote or advocate harmful action around that claim.” So long as you stick to the narrative, you should be just fine.
Facebook and other totalitarians are trying to shut down any debate about the Chinese virus, continuing to insist that there is one Narrative and ONLY one Narrative. If you deviate from it, you’ll be booted from the platform. The list of topics you cannot discuss on Facebook continues to grow and, eventually, all conservative views and thoughts may be censored there.’
Eventually all of us who are conservatives will be forced off Facebook.
