Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me

 
It is above my paygrade to assert that the same things that happened to Israel will happen to us. However, I do know that for breaking the first commandment, "You shall have no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:2-3), Israel was punished and exiled for thousands of years. I also know that Yahweh has said that He has prepared a hell-like place Tartarus, for all those elohims who set themselves up to be worshiped instead of Him.

So it is understandable that I get very uncomfortable when I see the nonMuslim young protesters with the signs "Today I am Muslim."

I also strongly believe there is a satanic element behind the religious fervor in these  protests.

We are being set up.

Psalm 106:35-41: "But they mixed among the nations and learned their deeds; they served their elohims, which were a snare to them. Thus they were defiled by their acts and acted like whores with these actions. Therefore the wrath of the lord was kindled against His people, and He abhorred His own inheritance. He gave them into the hand of the nations, and those who hated them ruled over them"

Having never been a religious scholar, I had never heard of the "other gods". I had only heard that there were false gods which I took to mean they never existed. Perhaps it's the same thing. But, in reading "You shall have no other gods before Me" it does seem to say that their are lesser gods existing.

Sarkazein said...

should read: "... that there are lesser gods existing."

Sarkazein said...

Is there a belief that Islam's god is different then God?

Blogger said...

Obviously allah is a different elohim. Check out who Mohammeds family worshipped.

Liberal POV said...

Blogger, Sark, or any "Good Christian Republicans ", what human rights, constitutional rights, citizenship rights or civil rights do you possess that are not also equally applied to Liberals, LBGT citizens, Muslim citizens and none believers?? Do you understand freedom of religion doesn't mean just your personal beliefs or your church's beliefs? Do you also understand American elected officials swear to uphold the U S Constitution, not the Quran or the Bible?

Johnny Rico said...

Liberal socialst Jackal POV,

Christians possess the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Muslims (non believers) don't possess this due to their extremist religion. Stoning women, raping women, forcing women to cover themselves, creating glass ceilings, preventing women from attending school, incest, inbreeding and wiping one's behind with a finger are prime examples.

Funny how liberal socialist jackals (you) seem unable to answer to your outright support of muslims (notice lower case) over Christians. Yet muslims are violent, preach violence, support violence via the fact they NEVER turn in violence prone Muslims, and do all the things mentioned above. Christians rarely do. And you have a problem with Christians? Were you born stupid or did you just get that way somehow? LOL!! I won.

Oh, and Machts Niches Bitches. Isn't that what you and your compatriots said on the eve of the Presidential Election? LOL!! How's it feel to lose and lose badly? Or should I say Bigly? LOL!! You lost, we won - get over it. Loser. Loser. Loser.

I was wondering when we would hear from the village idiot. Now we have. And now we can expect him to flee the field for another few months!! LOL

Blogger said...

JR, POV might as well flee the field unless he can learn to write clearer. I am surprised you responded as I did not have a clue as to where he was coming from.

guy faulkes said...

Blogger , it is the same La La La La La that he has always posted. You will have to go back several years to see where he is coming from.

Blogger said...

Sark, as to other elohim, they were false gods only from the Biblical writer's point of view. The other elohim are real. Those who worshipped them also made idols for them to come down and inhabit the images. So the worship of idols were also a problem. The entire Bible is all about the rebellion of the elohim and their war with Yahweh and His followers. It starts with an elohim seducing humans to join the rebellion. It ends with the elohims fate. Without the supernatural battle, the Bible and the church become pointless.

Blogger said...

Sark, as to Allah not being the same as Yahweh. Read some of the Koran. There is no similarity at all between the two elohim, especially when your know that "in Christ all the fullness of the Deity (Yahweh) lives in bodily form," Col 2:9. No similarity at all.

Liberal POV said...

Conservatives

No one addressed the question. Do Muslims, Liberals, non believers, women, people of color, children born to undocumented workers on American soil, have the exact same religious freedom, same citizenship rights, same human rights, and constitutional rights as you "Good Christian Republicans"?
Do undocumented American Residents have the same Human Rights and religious freedom as you "Good Evangelical Christians" ?

Liberal POV said...

Guy Faulks, inspired a new movie with his repetitive posts of La,La,La, because his comments had exceeded his mental and thinking abilities. Trapped in his own hypocrisy Guy repetitively posts La, La, La like a child with their hands over their ears. This is an excellent example of Conservative maturity and thinking abilities.

guy faulkes said...

What is the dolt doing back on the blog? I thought we were through with his La La La La La repetitive drivel.

To answer your question, dolt, all citizens of this country share the same constitutional rights with the exception of criminals. As ILLEGAL aliens are criminals and are not citizens, they do not have the rights of citizens.

Congratulations. You finally have realized the La La La La La comment indicatives we think of you as just that child.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

You're right, Thank you for publicly stating Conservatives, Evangelical Christians and Republicans have NO special religious rights, civil rights, human rights or constitutional rights. Muslims, Liberals, Atheist, citizens of color rights, LBGT citizens, children born on US Soil to paerents without documentation ALL have Equal Rights in America.

guy faulkes said...

Dolt, no one except for you and other leftist commenters have ever said that all citizens do not have the same constitutional rights. The key is that one has to be a citizen.

Human rights are only defined in international treaties. The U.S.. has not ratified all of these treaties. It would b a moot point if it had, because these "rights" are poorly defined and are both controversial and conflicting, with member nations of the U.N. treating them differently. China has an interesting approach to the issue. For practical purposes, they are only items of conversation.

Where was your concern for the human rights of underage prostitutes in which you defended ACORN?

Why do feel your argument is made stronger with unnecessary insults? It seem to be a conservative trait, Trump does the same as he lies to the world? Is that to be taken as a red flag, you already know want your about to post is questionable and a week argument for your opinion?

Johnny Rico said...

Liberal jackal pov - you talk about weak arguments - is this why you refuse to answer my truth post above? Here, let me refresh your pot addled memory: " Muslims (non believers) don't possess tolerance, or support rights of non muslims, due to their extremist religion. Stoning women, raping women, forcing women to cover themselves, creating glass ceilings, preventing women from attending school, incest, inbreeding and wiping one's behind with a finger are prime examples.

And you have a problem with Christians? Were you born stupid or did you just get that way somehow? LOL!! I won."

Look, I know losing hurts. And I also know that liberal jackals don't accept defeat very well at all (see Berkely, fake news, and violence against Trump supporters). But the fact remains, YOU LOST. As you told conservatives 8 years ago "You lost, we won, get over it." LOL!! Many tried telling you that casting stones from a glass house wasn't a smart idea, but you just wouldn't listen, and now here we are. LOL!!!

Machts Niches Bitches. Jackal losers will have to put up with this for another 4 to 8 years!! Imagine that jackal pov- years and years of conservatives advocating what you commie jackals hate the most - personal responsibility, rugged individualism, liberty, and patriotism. Get used to it.

Noneymouse Coward,
Oh ok, and I see the Democrats were responsible for many of these events, especially slavery Are you a Democrat? How about you Google the following - Colorado Movie Theatre Shooter, Gabrieal Giffords shooter, Virginia Tech Shooter, Navy Yard Shooter, Sandy Hook shooter, Florida Nightclub shooter and San Bernandino Shooter. And what do you come up with? LOL!! Yep, you guessed it - fellow Democrats. Democrats resort to violence far more than conservatives - a 10 to 1 ratio as a matter of fact.

Google Berkely Riots and violence against Trump supporters and see what you come up with. Yep, you guessed it - Democrat sore losers out of control.

Google Charleton Heston marching side by side with Martin Luther King when it wasn't popular to do so.

Machts Niches Bitches. You dolts lost and have absolutely no clue how to act or post on a conservative blog full of taxpaying winners. LOL!! Stings don't it.

I am done feeding the troll. In the past he has supported pedophilia and Muslim terrorists. Nothing he can say will change that, no matter how many times he proceeds with his La La La La La rhetoric. He is going to repeat himself forever so it is best to ignore him, as Blogger once suggested.

Blogger said...

Hope none of you get poison oak down in the weeds with POV

Liberal POV said...

Conservatives can't compete using factual information, honest, respectful dialogue to debate public policies of what is in the best interest of the general public. Trump is a pathological liar, Fox News is pure propaganda, Britbart pushes racism and Fascism using fear mongering and hate mongering. Conservatism fails humanity, society, wage earning citizens and in the long run Capitalism. If 80% of society is desperately poor, who can buy the products of capitalism? I saw capitalists in Haiti selling 4 ozs of water to the masses for pennies but little else. Is that the Conservative vision for America? Vision is what conservatives seem to lack most after a moral compass and empathy.

Blogger said...

It interests me that of all the posts I have made, POV chose to pick this one to comment on. As I said, I don’t really ever understand what he writes. Even when he cleans his writing up, he still always reminds me of what President Reagan said, “Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.”
But anyway, back to POV choosing this particular post about Islam. Islamists have sworn to replace all countries’ constitutions, as well as ours, with Shariah. By picking this particular thread, it appears that is not a problem for POV.
No, I would not extend equal rights to shariahists in this country.

Johnny Rico said...

Guy and Blogger,

Not to worry, the village idiot is ready to flee the field. With his latest welfare check, he's procured some THC and is riding high in mommy's basement for awhile. Still the socialist jackal won't answer inconvenient questions or posts such as this one:

"" Muslims (non believers) don't possess tolerance, or support rights of non muslims, due to their extremist religion. Stoning women, raping women, forcing women to cover themselves, creating glass ceilings, preventing women from attending school, incest, inbreeding and wiping one's behind with a finger are prime examples.

I know, I know, it's not wise to feed the trolls. But PLOP!, Liberal Jackal POV, Happily dumb, Shyster and the rest of the idiots are like clickbait. Hey, there's another accurate moniker for Liberal Jackal POV - CLICKBAIT!!! Definition of clickbait is something that's worthless, yet packaged in a way to appeal to the subconscious of the user. In this case, our subconscious is saying "Pound this dolt into a dustpile and then blow away the remains with a hairdryer." The problem is the drug addled dolt in question is so stupid that even he doesn't realize he's being pounded in the first place!! But it's still fun to give him a proper send off sometimes. LOL!!! I won.

Notice, the latest post by Conservatives, using using false narratives to justify their bigotry, injustice, arrogance and desire for an American Theocracy?

America is not a Theocracy and the US Constitution applies to all citizens.

Human Rights applies to all human beings.

Blogger like most conservatives blindfolds himself with the American Flag pounds on his Bible demanding all should be required by law to believe as he believes while denouncing The Islamic version of a similar religious zealotry.

Humanity and Empathy are no where to be found in the Conservative brand of religion beliefs. Truth, the Golden Rule, Ethics and Humanity are not a part of "Conservative Family Values ".

Blogger said...

Bet POV has never read Shariah Law.

Liberal POV said...

I'll bet Blogger has never read the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli.

"ARTICLE 11.

As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musclemen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

Rico makes an interesting point. Lpov supports equal rights for all (he says) and also supports a religious/political organization that repressively does not, even to the point of murdering those that do not believe in its ideas.

Liberal POV said...

Notice, Guy Faulkes lies to justify Conservative repression public policy of voter suppression, discrimination, scapegoating, human rights abuse, gerrymandering,religious bigotry, greed, and even torture while claiming to be a "Good Christian" and Patriot. This is another example of Conservative ideology being based in false narratives from the Con Artist President all the way to Cult followers like Guy and Blogger.

Anonymous said...

Who is this LPOV idiot? Doesn't he know anything about how Muslims treat women? The truth is just the opposite of what he says in everyone of his posts. Blogger had to have made up this person just to increase comments on the blog.

Liberal POV said...

Do you understand there're 1.6 billion Muslims in every country of the world and made up of all races? Do you further understand with a demographic that large you can support any false narrative you wish to use paint all Muslims negatively? Do also understand the same could be done with Christians and Cherry picked negative stories about Christians from around the world?

Do you think you have special constitutional rights your fellow citizens of the Islamic faith or others not sharing your religion beliefs or skin color do not share?

guy faulkes said...

Anonymous, LPOV is real. I have always suspected that three different people post under this name due to their different writing styles. One is not coherent in his use of language. the second writes on about a fifth or sixth grade level, and the third writes pretty well. All of them use the typical liberal tactics of repeating lies over and over in hope that people will come to believe them, use opinion pieces as sources, and attribute negative cogitations to the actions of others when they preform the very same actions.

His 7:34 post is an excellent example of this. He accuses you of "cherry picking" because you asked the question about whether he knew how Muslims treat women. You did not indicate any particular actions to all Muslims. He then "cherry picked" those Muslims whose actions support his cause.

By saying not all Muslims mistreat women, he is clearly admitting that many of them do. So many do that he made the interpretation that this is what you consider the norm. (As you almost certainly do. Were you referring to Sharia Law?)

As a matter of fact, Sharia Law not only condones but requires women be treated in a manner that would be considered mistreatment by the vast majority of people in this country. This being said, a statement that Muslims mistreat women is no more "cherry picked" than a statement that people are born with five fingers on each hand.

You will never stop LPOV from posting his repetitive La La La La La statements about the big lie he is supporting at the time. This is aggravating, but not necessarily bad as he blows himself out of the water if you look at his posts logically and/or do some research on them.

I would encourage you to choose a name and become a regular contributor o the blog.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

Looks like Guy needs a lesson in cherry picking from religious text. How would all Christians like to be defined by this scripture?

"“Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (I Corinthi"

“Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.” (Hosea 13:16)

“Give me any plague, but the plague of the heart: and any wickedness, but the wickedness of a woman.” (Eccles. 25:13)

“Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die.” (Eccles. 25:22)

You can justify nearly anything you want with religious text be it the Quran or the Bible.

Wolf's Head said...

A response to the left, from Eric Hoffer.

I would add that the left considers themselves to be intellectuals, but actually they assume the habits, manners and bigotry of intellectuals with no thinking involved.

guy faulkes said...

Lpov seems to want to change the subject. His post has nothing to do with me or cherry picking. He seems to assume that I am a fan of some type of organized religion. My religious beliefs are between God and me.

He is correct for once in saying one can justify anything he wants from any Holy Book. Why then, does he keep doing it in order to try to prove his La La La La La drivel?

Blogger said...

Guy, three POVs, that is exactly what I have identified with those exact characteristics you identified.

Blogger said...

POV, regarding all the Scriptures you quoted above. Christianity has values that allows it to reform itself. So far there has been no evidence of that in Islam--no Reformation. Also, Christian values led Christian nations to be the leaders in valuing women. Also, violent Scriptures in theTanach had a statute of limitations and therefore did not extend into the modern times. The Koran violence does not have a sell by date.
PS I write this for my other readers not for POV? It will go right over his head

liberal socialist sheep pov said: " every American is entitled to their very own personal religious beliefs just like you."

Is this how you give women stoning muslims a pass on their treatment of women, homosexuals, young boys and inbreeding? Now that we're talking about religious freedom, why are you still unable to answer my truth post above? Here it is again my liberal jackal of a friend:

"Muslims (non believers) don't possess tolerance, or support rights of non muslims, due to their extremist religion. Stoning women, raping women, forcing women to cover themselves, creating glass ceilings, preventing women from attending school, incest, inbreeding and wiping one's behind with a finger are prime examples.

Funny how liberal socialist jackals (you) seem unable to answer to your outright support of muslims (notice lower case) over Christians. Yet muslims are violent, preach violence, support violence via the fact they NEVER turn in violence prone Muslims, and do all the things mentioned above. Christians rarely do. And you have a problem with Christians? Were you born stupid or did you just get that way somehow? LOL!! I won."

As usual, you have a definite, defined problem answering my posts. Too difficult to delve into, or is your attention span a bit on the short side? Liberals are racist, bigoted, freedom destroying thugs who have murdered millions in the name of collectivism. Liberal jackal hero's such as Stalin, Pol Pot, and several Chinese dictators murdered hundred of millions of fellow citizens who had different political, social, and religious beliefs. Yet they are given a pass. No mention of Russia's great purge. No mention of Chinese communist "cleansing." Why is that jackal POV - is it because it doesn't fit with your collectivist narrative? LOL!!

For the very reason your fellow collectivists censored me from Watauga Watch, you will not be able to answer to this post. How does it feel to be beaten back at every turn when I take a break from work to give you a shellacking? In nearly 15 years, you, nor any other liberal, has been able to give even a feeble resistance.

Anyway, Machts Niches Bitches. Donald Trump is YOUR President. That alone makes it worth voting for him. It disturbs globalist oppressors like you to no end. Like Hussein obummer (notice lower case)said: "We won, you lost, get over it." The Bible warns against casting stones from glass houses, but you must have glossed over that part.

Johnny Rico said...

rachal maddow and liberal jackal pov are eerily similar - both bloviate and blabber about nothing to the point they become irrelevant. The hate and divisiveness on display from extremist liberals (all liberals) is amazing. Look at the sheer amount of violence perpetrated by liberals on conservatives. Yet, conservatives continue to take the high road in the face of such violence and lies, even if it means walking away. The Bible says to turn the other cheek. Unlike muslims or liberal extremists, Christians take the Bible to heart. It's a good thing they continue to be good Christians or the radical left would have something to worry about. Dolts like pov don't seem to think about the fact Christians are being victimized for their personal beliefs by radical liberals on a daily basis. Story after story comes in each day showing radical leftists engaged in physical acts of violence.

Notice how liberal jackal pov doesn't want to talk about the 4 young women arrested for vandalism in downtown Boone. No outcry whatsoever from liberals. They, like Pol Pot or Stalin, get a pass, because, as liberal believe, the ends justify the means. Is this how the radical left best thinks to handle a resounding defeat - by violence against peaceful citizens? But, I've always pointed out the racist, bigoted tendencies by the left, and they don't disappoint.
