ELDORADO, Texas — The secluded Texas ranch where followers of imprisoned polygamist Warren Jeffs lived in near isolation was seized by state agents on Thursday, nearly six years after FBI agents raided the property and removed hundreds of children amid c-h-i-l-d sex abuse allegations.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said its agents took possession of the Yearning For Zion Ranch near Eldorado. In a statement, DPS said only eight adults were still living on the West Texas property and agreed to leave after meeting with agents. DPS said authorities helped them vacate the ranch and take an inventory.

Anna (Foldvary) De Sousa is so good at couponing—clipping coupons to find local bargains—that she's gotten an $800 grocery bill down to just $7, and she regularly fills her basement or living room with items she got.

Knowing she could never use all of the goods herself, De Sousa has made a life out of using her skill to help others, donating countless times to the military, churches and other groups. The sudden death of her husband and her own survival following a near-fatal car accident has limited her income and ability to work, but never her generosity.

Poor Kimberley Davis.

The 21-year-old Australian woman was livid when she slammed into a bicyclist while texting late last year, putting dents in her car. The victim suffered a spinal fracture and would spend the next three months in a hospital, but Davis wasn't having any of it, The Standard reports.

"I just don’t care because I’ve already been through a lot of bullshit and my car is, like, pretty expensive and now I have to fix it," she told a responding officer two days after the Sept. 20 collision. "I’m kind of pissed off that the cyclist has hit the side of my car. I don’t agree that people texting and driving could hit a cyclist. I wasn’t on my phone when I hit the cyclist."

It is a great wonder to me  that many of Gods people  are no further than either the reformation  or indeed the  MILK  of the Word where baptism  is given  in Hebrews as only the milk. While  some  in contradiction  have made it meat.
If the devil cannot stop you getting saved he will  endeavour to stop you moving  or "going onto perfection."

Ye must be born again of the water and the Spirit .

In natural birth  there is the breaking of the water .Then the show of blood  then the new life .

Indeed  before the birth  there has to be the sowing of the seed  the gestation  and then the birth.

So as with many other  natural examples they give insight and understanding   of a spiritual truth.

The water  spoken of here cannot  refer to  baptism.

But speaks of the "Word that is the seed"  for have you forgotten that the kingdom of God is likened unto a sower that went  out to sow? and in that parable by which you may understand  all parables  Jesus said the seed is the Word .
Have you also forgotten  that if you are indeed truly BORNagain  it is by the incoruptable seed which is the Word of God.
Have you also forgotten  that  faith does  not come just by hearing the Word of God   but by understanding it also .
How is it then believed  that we are BORN AGAIN  by beign baptised.?
Did not Jesus  at the last supper  knowing that  he came form the father  and was going to the father  and that all  power had been given to him that  he took a towel and water  and began to wash  the disciples feet? and said to Peter  you are washed already   or clean   but one of you is un clean?
It si the Word that  prepares you   to accept Gods salvation for it convicts of sin leads to repentence  and turns you to Christ .Not just the Word alone but also by the Spirit  of truth that leads  all men into all truth >If they are willing to follow.

To those who  would make baptism a means of their own glory  then I suggest you consider Christ .
For are we not  to be made conformable to Him?
How is it then  you consider you do not receive life  until you are baptised?
You cannot accuse Christ of having no new life  before he was baptised.
But his baptism was to fullfill all righteousness .  Baptism is therefore a work of righteous ness .
How then can a sinner  do a work fo righteousness? he cant .
But a born again child of God  who is now counted righteous  can  and in obedience  to Christ   no more a "son of disobedience"  and in conformity with Christ  is baptised  and having already been crucified with Christ through faith  is now buried with him in baptism through  faith.

So let us  leave the milk of the Word  and go onto perfection  and if any  seek to continue in contention leave them to God  and move on.

in Christ

gerald


Are you labeling the baptisms that took place after Jesus' baptism a works of righteousness?

If that is the case, you are viewing baptism opposite what the scriptures states.

Baptism is for many purposes.

LiveScience By Megan Gannon ∙ Published April 18, 2014

The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archaeologists in England.

"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project manager with Wardell Armstrong Archaeology. "It is lovely to imagine some irate person chasing a dog or some other animal away from their freshly made tiles."

The artifacts, which could be nearly 2,000 years old,were found in the Blackfriars area of Leicester, the English city where the long-lost bones of King Richard III were discovered under a parking lot in 2012. Wardell Armstrong Archaeology was brought in to dig at a site where a construction company plans to build student housing.

When will people stop making up their beliefs and then use the scriptures to support them,instead  of just accepting what is written?Theres so much erroneous teaching that has been accepted as truth in the past 500 years some in less than the past 200 years some had their beginings all the way back to early church history.examples: predestination,dispensationalism,pre-seven year tribulation rapture,eternal security -easy believism-no commitment salvation,prosperity,pugatory,transubstantiation,cessation of spiritual gifts since the first century,divorce and remarriage for any cause and homosexuality sactioned by God and the list goes on ::preachit::

Aren't you glad you have all truth with no error in what you understand and believe?

If the rapture comes AFTER the tribulation, what good is it to be raptured? Most all the remaining Christians will be KILLED during the tribulation.

And the tribulation is coming to discipline the unbelievers, not the believers. There is no acceptable interpretation for the rapture EXCEPT PRE-TRIBULATION.

Pope Francis is working hard to fix the "breaches" and the "great divide" in the Christian churches around the world. He has been meeting with different Christian church leaders and is attempting to UNITE all of us in our faith in Christ.

So why don't you get with the program instead of insisting on driving more stakes between all of us?

We need to be UNITED in Christ. There is no "Divided in Christ." Paul taught this in all of his letters.

I am a musician and a lover of music, but I always skip the Grammy awards show.     Few of the winners are actually musicians or vocalists.   Songwriters like Jimmy Webb are long forgotten.
