    More Than Just The Talk... Becoming Your Children's Go To Person

    in Lifestyle

    Join Us As We Discuss The Unedited Truth About Sex


    In a sex-saturated culture where kids are exposed to nearly 14,000 sexual references per year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered ography on the Internet, parents can't rely on the traditional one-time "sex talk" that their own parents muddled through. Kids need to know that it's natural to be curious about sex and that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Otherwise, their friends and smartphones will be more than willing to give answers that are likely to lead them down the path to sin and heartache.


    Teens questions................


    · Is hooking up really wrong?
    · What about living together if you fall in love?
    · If the Bible bans sex before marriage . . . is everything else fair game?
    · What about same-sex relationships? Since when does God deny any kind of true love?

    Great questions . . . but who has the answers?

    Our culture creates a lot of confusion about sex. Honestly, sometimes it's difficult to know who's telling the truth. On one hand, when we read our Bibles or go to church, we hear how God's design is to wait for sex and save that kind of intimacy for marriage. But on the other hand, when we go to school, turn on the TV, or listen to many of the songs on our favorite playlists . . . they say quite the opposite. Naturally, this makes many of us wonder. Who's right? Sex seems fun. How can something so natural be off-limits?

    In Jonathans new book Sex Matters, Jonathan McKee tackles all of these questions, giving you the frank, unvarnished truth about sex--regardless how awkward or embarrassing.

    INTRODUCTION = HOW TO BUILD THE ARK OF THE COVENANT

    in Religion

    The ARK OF THE COVENANT was a capacitor providing electric shock able to kill or to awaken – according to the trimming of the device.


     


    Which is why its handling was so delicate that it required the experience of a perfectly formed and disciplined para-military troop, the Levites. It is under the control of the Levites Actuelly Moses put the ark from his descent from Mount Sinai.


    Have we really found the LOST ARK? It is possible. Do we only know that it is a machine, what it is used for and how it works? It is much less certain.


    The Ark of the Covenant is one of the oldest archaeological mysteries, literature and cinema have often seized it to give a big thrill, but there is no satisfactory explanation for this powerful biblical mystery.


     


    The Ark appears for the first time in the story of the Exodus when YHVH gives Moses detailed instructions to manufacture a triple box surmounted by the “Holy of Holies”, a golden statue with “magical” powers. According to these instructions, the Ark measured 4.436 feet long, 2.102 feet wide and as much tall.


    The plateau (or Mercy Seat) could hardly exceed 1 foot. Just a little bigger than a BALL OF LIGHTING. The installation instructions given by YHVH states that each of the three boxes must be made of a sandwich of plates of gold and acacia wood.


    As a good engineer, YHVH told Moses in what condition the Ark could be manipulated. This task, dangerous, would be entrusted to a special priesthood OR THE LEVITES, trained for this work and wearing protective clothing.

    Stand For Truth Radio

    in Politics

    Please join your host Susan Knowles, Monday, May 4 at 6:00 pmPT/9:00pmET when my guest will be PATRICK WOOD, author of Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. We'll be talking about how technocracy is impacting every aspect of your life without your knowledge. We'll discuss how it is involved in your religious beliefs, climate change, Hillary Clinton's desire to transform your religious beliefs, your money, the NSA and more.


    The dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism. It is Technocracy.


    With meticulous detail and an abundance of original research, Patrick M. Wood uses Technocracy Rising to connect the dots of modern globalization in a way that has never been seen before so that the reader can clearly understand the globalization plan, its perpetrators and its intended endgame.


    In the ensuing 41 years, the modern expression of Technocracy and the New International Economic Order is clearly seen in global programs such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Councils of Governments, Smart Growth, Smart Grid, Total Awareness surveillance initiatives and more.


    Wood contends that the only logical outcome of Technocracy is Scientific Dictatorship, as already seen in dystopian literature such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (1932) andNineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (1948), both of whom looked straight into the face of Technocracy when it was still in its infancy.


    With over 250 footnotes, an extensive bibliography and clarity of writing style, Wood challenges the reader to new levels of insight and understanding into the clear and present danger of Technocracy, and how Americans might be able to reject it once again.

    Audio Book, Black Abolitionists chp 9 Traitors and Loyalists By Benjamin Quarles

    in Education

    Dating from its origin, the Negro press printed the names of black informants,Freedom's Journal listing those of Moses Smith, formerly of Baltimore, and Nathan Gooms of New York, in its issue of November 7, 1828. The mere appearance of these names in the columns of the weekly was a sufficient deterrent to die other informers whose identity the editors threatened to reveal. When Martin R, Delany was editor of The Black Underground  Dr. Martin R. Delaney, founder of the Pittsburgh Mystery in 1842 and later was co-editor of the North Star.



    In August 1858 two runaways were betrayed by John Brodie, who had promised to assist them in returning to Covington, Kentucky, to effect the liberation of relatives. Brodie's treachery nearly cost him his life.  He was seized by a group of Negroes, who proceeded to give him three hundred blows with a paddle, a stroke for each dollar he was supposed to have received from the slave-catchers. Only the presence of the influential Henry Highland Garnet saved Brodie from further punishment. The badly mauled informer delivered himself to the police authorities, to be placed in jail for safe-keeping
