Movie Reviews Forum / Re: Exodus

I rather enjoyed it but I did not go with the expectations of seeing an accurate biblical account, I could stay home and save the $50 bucks to do that  ::smile::

I thank God that 2 or 3 men here have more sympathy for the victims rather than the abuser, and that they recognise the seriousness of what he did. I would be deeply troubled if no men here recognised the dangers of what he did and of the danger that he may well still live with the temptation to abuse young girls.
As I pointed out earlier with a man I used to know. He used to expose himself to his younger sister, (who I know well). She found it very distressing, even though some of you may consider his actions not ''serious'). He was in his early teens at the time. Later on in his 20s he married and had three children. He sexually abused all three in his late 20' and 30's. He was BTW apparently also a Christian.
 Sexual offenses, far from disappearing, can escalate and get more serious later on. All police men know that.  When such actions begin in the teens, it can be a sign of something seriously wrong that needs professional help, while also making sure that there is NEVER an opportunity for him to be alone with any young girls again.

I don't think anyone here thinks the offense to the little girls was anything but heinous. As a father of two daughters and two grand daughters, It is nothing but heinous. That issue was never in question in my mind. My only input in the thread(s) was saying that Huckabee did not dismiss the abuse. No one here is minimizing damage done to the girls. And of course they need much prayer.

Hastings had free movies for memorial day and one of the ones we picked up was exodus .  It was really bad.  The acting was so so but Exodus was completely rewritten.  The only resemblance to the original was the guys name was Moses.

Catholica   I love all my brother and sisters in Christ.  I did attend mass several times while growing up with a good friend.  Also when I was in our public junior high we did not have a lunch room and I ate most days at the Catholic school that was 2 blocks away.  I still remember the priest there trying to convince me that chocolate milk came from brown cows and white milk from white cows.  He was a good guy.

Hi Victor, nice to SEE you again  rofl


Seriously, I could really use these, my vision has been on the decline especially in the last decade.
Hi Alan. Yep, have to agree with Jd34.

My wife had an accident at school when she was 6 years old.

She threw a pencil at her desk and it bounced up and poked her in the eye, she hasn’t been able to see much out of that eye ever since.

I would consider it a miracle if this bionic eye actually works as advertized and she could see out of that eye for the first time in 52 years.

 I worked in a microbiology lab for a number of years and in order to sterilize ( or kill all bacteria) we would have to heat our equipment in an autoclave up to 250 degree F for 20 minutes. 

Bacteria and diarrhea go hand in hand-- the enterics will wreak havoc  on your digestive system.

So please be carefull with leftovers and re heating food. No sense in suffering the consequences.. Great links posted already, please read and educate yourself.

By their newness , their spirit - sticks out like a sore thumb to me.
 Having known them before and then after- you can tell a difference.

But in all honesty, I don't see how it's possible for a man to 100% know another mans heart - but I think God gives us all insight to it.

just curious...

can you tell by sight?  is it their conversation?  sticker on their car?  belonging to a church? 

what is the measure or is their one?

and in keeping with the commission given by Christ how do we select our candidates for witnessing?


How can we tell someone who has been regenerated? I think that it is a number of things taken together, because any one of them taken alone does not mean the person is walking with God, it only means that they may be a good person...

1.  you will know them by their fruit...the good do not produce bad fruit...

2.  John says that if we ourselves are truly walking with God, we will know who really isn't by their doctrine...

I John 4:6
We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Of course, again, this is predicated by "we" actually walking with God as He lays it out, and not just someone who "thinks" he is walking with God.

3.  They will manifest from time to time one of the gifts of the Spirit...he who does not have the Spirit is not Christ's, and the gifts of the Spirit according to Paul, are the manifestations of the Spirit for the good of all. This makes churches where none of the gifts are EVER manifested highly suspect, and I would not remain in such a church, personally.

4.  They will walk in obedience to the Scriptures and manifest being changed into the image of Christ...they will manifest the fruit of the Spirit if they have been walking with God in truth after a while, and not just playing church. In other words, when he smashes his finger with a hammer, he won't start cussing his head off.

If a person doesn't manifest all of the above, then they might be suspect as not being regenerated...or possibly have been regenerated in the past but has since stopped walking with God. Part of the problem here is that many believe "once regenerated, always regenerated" in that it does not matter what one does after receiving regeneration, they will always be in saving relationship with God - but that is not what the Scriptures teach.

Blessings!

Have you ever had diarrhea / runs........  all day ?  day after day ?
No. But then again, I'd never eat at a home wherein someone prepares food the way your daughter-in-law does. Food bacteria can kill.

 Sounds like you have food poisoning.

Stop eating what she cooks is first thing to find if that is the source of your troubles. Likely is.
Secondly, if there is a health food store near you go and get live culture acidolphelus. You'll find it in the refrigerated supplements section.
My wife was prescribed antibiotics once and those tend to kill the acidolphelus in the gut, which are what is responsible for colon health. And that tends to lead also, the antibiotics, to yeast infection to compound the problem of side effects due to antibiotics. Worked like a charm. Her intestinal health was optimal in no time.

Here are some links that may help you. I used keywords particular to your troubles.
Also, drink spring water instead of tap while healing from this.  Tap water can have all sorts of things in it that can compound your issues, including fluoride.

If your DiL serves rice and potatoes in the same meal those are both starches. Not a good idea for balanced nutrition. While at the health food store, if you opt to go, you might want to talk to an employee there about what you're experiencing at the DiL's house food wise. There are a lot of books out there on proper nutrition and food prep.

Likely her family isn't suffering as you do because their immune system has built a tolerance for her at risk practices as relates to food storage, or the proper lack thereof.

Best wishes. Keep us apprised.
