Most of what we know about Smith’s life before Jamestown comes from his The True Travels, Adventures, and Observations of Captaine John Smith (1630). He provides such a daredevil account of his life that critics have sometimes accused him of exaggerating his exploits. But by comparing Smith’s own account with letters and documents of the time, scholars such as biographer Philip Barbour have confirmed his story and clarified it. It is an amazing story.

So using the same phrase that appears all through Title 8 of federal law to identify an illegal alien in New York City can now land you in hot water. And if you inform the illegal alien that you are going to report their unlawful presence in the country to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), not only will the police not assist the feds in taking the illegal into custody, but they may be dispatched to take you in if the person files a complaint.
I would just blast Genesis from my sound system! (better download this before it’s banned…)

Each day (well, almost) my wife and I read the scriptures out loud to each other. Today we read 2 John:
9. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
As I pointed out to my wife, here we find that it is, indeed, very Christian to exclude some types of people. ‘Inclusiveness’ and ‘diversity’, for their own sakes, are NOT Christian teachings. I won’t receive him in my house. I won’t ‘bake the cake.’
I mention this because I was recently castigated by some atheist on Facebook for being unChristian for my lack of inclusiveness.
I’m always amused by non-Christians, who apparently have never read the Scriptures, telling Christians what they should believe.
“If the mainstream media were doing its job, J-school students would be taught that their job is to report the facts, not change the world.”
And that is why they are ‘fake’ media. I don’t care what you call it, “changing the world,” “making a difference,” “saving the planet,” it’s all fake because they are pathetic little sick people who refuse to work on improving themselves. They’d rather play God than follow Jesus…

Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today. None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.
