CUSSING AND USING OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE SEEMS FUNNY TO SOME PEOPLE AND OTHERS REALLY BELIEVE THAT UNNECESSARY BAD LANGUAGE IS MEANINGFUL. Intensifiers Are Required For Some People To Express Themselves Meaningfully, But When Listening To Gutter Talk Coming Out Of Politicians, We Understand Why They Cannot Be Trusted. For some reason cussing provides relief for many people and comedians think that this is all their audience seeks—they are probably right—but they are not funny and lack wit.

One day I was at a meeting where about fifteen people were gathered to discuss analytical processes regarding the business of which we were all involved. One of the key speakers, who had just returned from doing business overseas, liked to go to a coffee house, relax, play cards and cuss. At the meeting, he didn’t cuss, because he was there to speak sense.

When talking to a taxi driver one day, he decided that he would cease cussing while speaking with me. Unfortunately, he suddenly had gaps of silence in his speech. When he went back to cussing he was much more comfortable in his demeanor and thought he was really rattling out something worth listening to. Not that I would pay him for what he had to say—tips come in many sizes but not always in the shape of money.

Some comedians think it is funny that they get paid by people to go and hear them cuss. Evidently, comedians are supposed to lack wit because people only think cussing is funny. This is a reflection of the fact that patrons of unfunny comedians, who feast on the use of profanities and obscenities, obviously are suffering from some disease—the hypocrisy of faking propriety and uprightness as a law-abiding citizen. When they hear a clown on stage take them down with cuss words, they laugh nervously, finding some short-lived relief for their anxiety. Relief is what happens when people read the Bible and discover that a cheerful heart is the best medicine. Laughter is brightens up the countenance, but can be very short-lived indeed. Many comedians end up tragedies, though—and then there are the lists of suicides.

Oddly enough, in English, most of the cussing words seem to be a fetish focused on excrement, orifices used for excrement, genitals or sexual intercourse. The use of certain names used for religious purposes are commonly used by people who think words relating to excrement, genitals and sexual intercourse are too course. Among non-English speaking Catholics, offense is made by referring to virgins and incest.

Cussing can be used purposefully to disgust and offend, as an intensifier to highlight and emphasize a point, and even to speak to people who do not understand any other language. Some people think possessing a vocabulary that uses words with two or more syllables is cussing.

Cussing is unnecessary—except when having to speak to a person who thinks cussing is really meaningful language and does not understand anything else, because their vocabulary is limited to only 100 other words besides the 600 variety of cuss words they use as verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions and a preposition or two—exclamations don’t exist because they do not understand what it means to talk in a civil manner, let alone whisper.

Cussing has no worthwhile meaning because it is obscene, profane and unnecessary—worse still, too much cussing seems to have a lot to do with a change in climate.
Some of the reasons people cuss are:
  1. they have no inner peace;
  2. they are angry;
  3. they are frustrated;
  4. they get excited by sexual perversion;
  5. they are attempting to sound cool;
  6. they have a limited vocabulary;
  7. they desire to offend others;
  8. they want to be different;
  9. they feel comfortable doing what comes natural;
  10. they are possessed by the spirit of the world and doing what the god of this world desires.
I once used to cuss; often finding myself offending people and having to apologize for my indiscretion. How times have changed.

When I became a Christian, cussing just seemed to stop without any effort. My interests changed and I had a reason for living other than being influenced by the god of this world.

As for cussing being a sin, much depends on whether what we say is going to be offensive to others. Sin is anything that is performed with the aim to violate a relationship.

Just because the homonym “fook”, which is a legitimate word that denotes a particular item in one language, may sound like a cuss word in another language—depending upon pronunciation—this does not mean it is a cuss word.

A Dutch woman told me a story, where she became irate because the young man serving her at the counter in a haberdashery store did not understand that all she wanted was a fook or something similar. When the store manager arrived, the woman was terribly embarrassed to find out what the horrified young man thought she was saying.

What we say, and do, can affect us in ways we often do not realize. Because of this, I’ve heard it said in certain circles that a person who does not drink or cuss cannot be trusted. Contrary to the perception of three stooges, the world is based not on righteousness; rather, enslavement is how the (trap) doors are opened. Much business and political activity spins on bribery to enslave and turn the money wheel—the love of which (money, that is) happens to be the root of all evil.

The Son of God said that each one of us will be held accountable for every careless word each one of us utters.
  • I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter. (Matthew 12:36)
On the Day of Judgment, if a person claims that he did not really mean what he said (cussing is like that anyway, has no meaning, has no worth, has no love), from what we read in the book of Matthew, that person does not look like having a leg to stand on—corner stools for fools will be an anachronism.

Either wake up and grow up now or, after leaving this biological zone, there will be no one to phone. The help line will have been cut off: no such number, no such zone.

Christians Taking The Name Of God In Vain Need To Understand What It Means

CHRISTIAN BAPTISM IS CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL FOR SALVATION BY SOME DENOMINATIONS BUT NOT BY OTHERS BECAUSE THEY POINT TO VARIOUS INSTANCES WHERE THE BIBLE INDICATES PEOPLE WERE SAVED WITHOUT BEING BAPTIZED. Nevertheless, Even If Baptism Is Not Essential For Salvation Of The Individual, The Rite Appears To Be Significant Because It Was Practiced In The New Testament By The Forerunner To Lord Jesus Christ And By His Disciples On His Behalf, As Well As The Apostles. In fact, the Apostles taught that Baptism was very important for obtaining a clear conscience and an exercising obedience of faith that is essential for continued salvation.

There are denominations that skip baptism and don't believe it's necessary. I think people are missing my point. I'm asking about the specific use if the word baptism in this verse as Jesus uses it.

There are certain criteria that Abraham filled to be saved. Baptism was not one of those criteria. One criteria is acknowledging God’s voice. But the main criteria for salvation is faith.
  • They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do what Abraham did,” (John 8:39)
  • That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants—not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, for he is the father of us all. (Romans 4:16)
Baptism, therefore, is not essential for salvation. Baptism is essential if we are to fulfill all righteousness. This is not something that is based upon keeping a rule, a ritual or a law to establish righteousness, rather this is a matter of obedience of faith.
  • The scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness”; and he was called the friend of God. (James 2:23)
  • What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, righteousness through faith; but that Israel who pursued the righteousness which is based on law did not succeed in fulfilling that law. (Romans 9:30–31)
  • Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on him. (Matthew 3:13–16)
Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles begins and finishes the book of Romans (often called “The Fifth Gospel”) stating his mission is to bring about the obedience of faith in Lord Jesus Christ among all the nations.
  • Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and designated Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ; (Romans 1:1-5)
  • Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed and through the prophetic writings is made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith— to the only wise God be glory for evermore through Jesus Christ! Amen. (Romans 16:25–27)
When the Apostle Paul went to Ephesus, he came upon twelve disciples who had been baptized into John’s Baptism, the same baptism that Jesus went through. However, Paul declared that John’s baptism was merely one of repentance, and that the disciples needed to be baptized again; this time calling on the name of Lord Jesus Christ.
  • And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.” And Paul said, “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. (Acts 19:3-5)
  • And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)
Baptism is a matter of obedience of faith. Obedience of faith cannot be exercised by children who have no knowledge of the reason why they need to repent and be born of God. Therefore, the Apostle Paul declared John the Baptist’s baptism invalid, for he declared that people were to be baptized in water calling upon the name of Lord Jesus Christ—which is the revealed name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is consistent with what Jesus said at the time of John the Baptist, when He said that it was “fitting to fulfill all righteousness.”

The Apostle Paul was given the message concerning salvation to take to every nation.

The revelation of what God was doing from Pentecost onward supersedes what was happening even at the time of John. Therefore people were called to exercise obedience of faith and fulfill all righteousness by being baptized in water calling upon the name of Lord Jesus Christ to walk in newness of life, filled with the Holy Spirit. Any other deviation is not in accordance to what the Apostle preached or what the other apostles did.
  • And Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)
The evidence from Scripture is every person who is to walk with God needs to repent, and be baptized in the name of Lord Jesus Christ in order to fulfill all righteous by exercising obedience of faith. This was practiced by all the Apostles.

Pedobaptism, whether the splashing of water as a token of baptism or full baby baptism, often called “christenings”, are not valid expressions of obedience of faith by children. They are promoted in direct disobedience to what the Scriptures teach. So is any practice that does not conform with what the Apostles taught and did.

Too Many People Miss Out On The Truths Of Scriptures Because They Use Shortcuts

CHRISTIAN RAPPERS RAP OTHER CHRISTIANS FOR NOT ACCEPTING RAPPERS WHO SAY THEY ARE CHRISTIANS. There Are Many People Who Claim They Are Christians, But Who Are Not, And There Are Many People Who Become Christians, Who Want To Initially Retain Their Old Ways. Becoming a Christian is about being renewed in one's thinking and transformed within one's inner being.

For some reason I can't really grasp this concept, it just doesn't make sense to me. How could you be a Christian but not a Christian rapper? And why wouldn't you want to spread the faith being a Christian rapper?

If you truly desire to be a Christian, you will have no desire to be anything else. The Apostle Peter clearly stated that the only name by which we are to glorify God is as a Christian. The word “Christian” means “belonging to Christ”.
  • But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker; yet if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but under that name let him glorify God. For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:15-17)
Spreading the faith is what we do when we glorify God and let our lights shine before other people. How to spread the faith has nothing to do with the way we might think this should be done. Rather, for those of us who belong to Lord Jesus Christ, we acknowledge that we do not possess the knowledge that He does and in humility learn from the Master. The world uses the same principle—apprentices learn from those who have gone before them.

Jesus said that if we are to glorify God, we are to bear fruit. Bearing fruit is accomplished when we allow God to be our teacher, rather than any one of us deciding to teach God how things are done, as people seem intent on doing to their detriment; at least until they wake up to themselves—but only a comparatively few ever do wake up to the truth of how great God is really.
  • And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. (Mark 8:34)
  • And he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:38)
  • Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. (John 12:24)
  • I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
  • By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples. (John 15:8)
If a people, who are Christians, truly desire to spread their faith, they will demonstrate this by bearing fruit in their lives that brings glory to God. They will not be seeking to establish another expression of faith that is contrary to what Lord Jesus Christ has already established. Instead, people will see what faith a person possesses by what the person does. Those who have faith in God bring glory to His name as other people proclaim what they observe in their lives (Matthew 5:16).

Understanding The Truth Sets People Free From Misconceptions And Falsehood

JACOB IS OFTEN DESCRIBED AS A CHEAT AND PORTRAYED AS AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE WICKED PERSONS IN THE BIBLE, EVEN THOUGH HE OBTAINED THE BLESSING. People Are Often Confused When It Comes To Jacob Because Of The Fact He Is Described As Being Deceptive, But On The Other Hand Declared Righteous. Too many people when quoting the Bible create conflicting messages because of the lack of context and the incorrect interpretation that results from this.

  1. Isn’t Jacob a sinner as he deceived his brother and father?
  2. If I am not wrong God do nothing with out reason. Then why God chooses Jacob if he is a sinner?
  3. Why God wrestled with him?
  4. Did Jacob got punishments for his sins?

In the Bible, there appear to be conflicting texts in respect to people being good.

Many claim that there is no goodness in man at all; therefore, all men are liars. In which case, we know that we can disregard what they say—they are evil people, who are liars, and cannot be trusted anyway. However, right thinking from a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) does not make absurd claims..

God created everything—including man—good. The trouble is, instead of doing good, men tend to do evil. Yet there are men—even though not righteous—who are considered good; simply because they desire good.
  • And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. (Genesis 1:31)
  • They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one. (Psalm 14:3)
  • Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man—though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die. (Romans 5:7)
A righteous man is one who has never sinned or (which is important for human beings to understand) does not have sin imputed against him.

A good man is one who desires to do what is right, even though he knows he has sinned. For there are good men among Jews and non-Jews; in other words, every ethnic group has good people among them.

Not everyone is pure evil. People have a knowledge of good and evil, but there are those who prefer to do good, even if they acknowledge they are not perfectly good—as in purely good—for only God is perfectly good.

A means to understand how a person can be good and yet fail to make the grade is to grasp this: even if an individual were to be 99.99999% good, that 0.00001% is sufficient to turn what was wholly good into rotten—and completely rotten at that.
  • There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for every one who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. (Romans 2:9-10)
  • And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. (Luke 18:19)
When Jesus said that only God was good, He was referring to sinless good. For those in whom God delights are people who are good Otherwise, the Bible is speaking falsehood when it states:
  • The steps of a good man are from the Lord, and he establishes him in whose way he delights; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord is the stay of his hand. (Psalm 37:23–24)
Once we understand that there is a distinction between being righteous and good, and being a sinner though good—which can be referred to as “righteously good” and “good though fallen”—we understand why the Scriptures speak of men who desire good rather than evil, and that these individuals are considered good, even though they themselves are tainted with evil because of their own sin.

Jacob sinned. But he desired to do good. Many sin, but desire to good. We sin because we are caught by the Devil's entrapment to do what he desires. The degree to which we yield to the Devil’s desires, depends upon our proclivities, which have been cultivated by reason of our upbringing.

Jacob desired to do the will of God and relate to His Heavenly Father. Jacob wanted the birthright that our Heavenly Father bestows upon us all. Esau disregarded this birthright.
  • Esau said, “I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?” (Genesis 25:32)
  • Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils, and he ate and drank, and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. (Genesis 25:34)
  • Esau said, “Is he not rightly named Jacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright; and behold, now he has taken away my blessing.” Then he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?” (Genesis 27:36)
When people despise their birthright, they dishonor God. For the fifth commandment is the first commandment with a promise—the blessing. The fifth commandment requires us to honor our parents, which is, after all, a desirable quality, since our parents raise us. In honoring our parents, we honor God; because He is good. Likewise, what our parents do is good, when caring for us as children is good.
  • “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:2–3)
Esau dishonored God by disregarding his birthright. Jacob saw that honoring God and possessing the birthright that he felt he should share in, since he was a twin, was worthy to obtain. The Bible tells us that it is immoral, a violation of God’s commandments to disregard our birthright.
  • See to it that no one fail to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” spring up and cause trouble, and by it the many become defiled; that no one be immoral or irreligious like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. (Hebrews 12:15-16)
Jacob was a sinner, but by faith He obtained the promise of salvation. For salvation comes only through faith, nothing else.
  • For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, “He who through faith is righteous shall live.” (Romans 1:17)
  • And how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15)
  • So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Hebrews 6:12)
When we do not exercise faith, we cannot obtain or inherit the promises that are ours in God, as part of our birthright, having been created as human beings in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). God does not change (Malachi 3:6).

Jacob exercised faith, and through giving God the glory, grew in faith and obtained the promises. Likewise, we need to exercise faith, too. Faith enables us to believe that God loves us and forgives us of our sins, not because we delight in sin, but because we recognize the goodness of God and desire to walk with Him. Those who lack faith, either see God as a vengeful judge or they disregard Him altogether. Those who possess faith are willing to believe that God will cover their sin, because they did not ask to be born into sin.

Jacob exercised faith and demonstrated this in his attitude towards God, even being willing to wrestle the Angel of God, because he believed God was good, not evil.

The Hatred Of Evil Is The Beginning of Wisdom, But How Does One Know Evil?

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSCIENCE AND THE MORAL CONSCIENCE BOTHERS SOME PEOPLE. The Conscience Is A Bothersome Aspect Of Being Human When Not Cleared Of All Guilt Or Sense Of Wrongdoing. Although, some people prefer to kill their conscience because that way they can kill others without feeling remorse.

The terminology sounds like somebody seeking to be novel and looking for an idea to write a thesis. A distinction could be made between a conscience that is moral and one that is distorted—thereby psychological. Psychology is the study of the human personality after all.

Strictly speaking, our conscience is the inner recognition of right and wrong. Our conscience refers to the relationships that we have with others and operates from knowledge; not from irrational instinct, nor from the sympathetic nervous system, nor the parasympathetic nervous system.

From a evolutionary psychological perspective, there may be some novel application by incorporating the autonomous nervous system as part of a concept that is defined as the psychological conscience. But, in doing this, we would be changing the definition of the term conscience.

If there is to be any relationship between a moral conscience and a fabricated conscience, which somehow incorporates other components of a person’s constitution, then it would be a case of creating a fake conscience and seeing how this compares with a true conscience.

Freud has already construed a definition for a fake conscious and called it the superego.
The superego is the ethical component of the personality and provides the moral standards by which the ego operates. The superego's criticisms, prohibitions, and inhibitions form a person's conscience, and its positive aspirations and ideals represent one's idealized self-image, or “ego ideal.” Sigmund Freud, 1921
The superego is a distorted consciousness that reflects cultural mores or personal upbringing that conflicts with the true conscience—a feature of our constitution Freud did not want to acknowledge, for he saw the superego as the developed conscience.

The true conscience is an inherent recognition of right and wrong that enables us to determine whether what we do to others is acceptable if done to our selves.

People raised in communities where they are taught standards of behavior that constitute distorted morality (where murder, stealing and false witness are permitted) have internalized friction within their psyche, which they need to suppress somehow, or be continually troubled. In suppressing their true conscience, people develop a false conscience.

The superego of Freud, which is the false conscience, is at odds with the true conscience. Although, Freud did not see it this way.

The true conscience is the defining element within humans that separates us from animals of instinct that function from their autonomous nervous system. This instinctive behavior is the result of how their peculiar behaviors have been programmed. Hence, birds will dance and put on a display when courting, and insects exhibit surprisingly complicated routines—such as the two spider wasps I have observed digging a hole for its egg and the spider upon which it will feed.

Here is another instance of a spider wasp at work preparing a cache for its offspring to munch.

There is no conscience involved, there is no conceptualizing required, the wasp is programmed to what she does. The wasp does not require a committee to find out whether she should paralyze the spider or discus the ethics of whether the spider is suitable or not. The spider wasp does what it is programmed to do, nobody taught it.

Humans, unlike the wasp, are programmed to conceptualize and recognize the value of relationships, which is why we have the capacity to understand morality. The ability to conceptualize also means we have the ability to distort reality and create our own deceptions—this is how the fake conscious (the superego) is born. Conceptualization also requires a process of distinguishing and contrasting that which is perceived as a concept. Hence, humans are programmed to learn. This ability to learn is the key feature of our programming and originates from our ability to distinguish right from wrong, good from evil, truth from falsehood. Unfortunately, being able to conceptualize leads into imaginary situations that develops confirmation bias and differing worldviews—the result of a distorted conscience.

The relationship between what one might term a psychological conscience and our true conscience depends upon the degree of deception a person is prepared to entertain. If a conscience is defined as the capacity to discern a right relationship based on an absolute moral code, then psychology already has a definition for the conscience. It is defined as the inner recognition of right from wrong.

The True Conscience Is One That Authentically Acknowledges Right From Wrong

THE GOLDEN RULE IS THOSE WHO POSSESS THE GOLD GET TO RULE. As Much As You Might Like To Have Say In The Matter Of What You Would Like To Do With Your Life The Day Is Coming When Your Choices Will Be Limited Even More. Money is soon to be digitized the world over and there is every possibility that even gold will be of no value.

The goal is to capture everybody's wealth by transferring it from the majority to the minority that rules the world.

On Earth, the "Golden Rule" is more about those who have the gold will rule than about doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Now the vibe is becoming Bitcoin's the new gold standard.

Bitcoin is proclaimed by many as being digital gold because it is mined via a technique that requires computerized operations and is a time consuming process.

Bitcoin is a block chain technology that is hailed as a foolproof means for creating a digital currency that can be used without criminal activity.

Can you believe that a computerized digital code cannot be hacked?

If you believe that politicians have your best interests at heart, then you might believe that crypto-currencies are a foolproof means for you to secure your money without being hacked.

Now Bitcoin can produce more than 21 million coins because there has been a means introduced that enables this to happen.

The Bitcoin split (or "fork", as it is called) is a red flag

And here's why!

Shares are created and distributed to shareholders of companies. 

The aim is for shareholders to benefit by sharing in the profits.

When shares are doing well, they are often split, and more shares are created.

Bonus shares or rights issues dilute the value of the shares in a company, because more shares are created out of nothing.

Shares worth $10.00 are split into a  2 for 1 issue, which means that the $10.00 share becomes $5.00.

There are major benefits for creating new shares when it comes to manipulation, but Warren Buffet has never split his company's A Class shares, currently priced around $263,000.

Buffett has said that Class A shares will never be split because he thinks that high share prices attract like-minded investors who are focused on long-term profits as opposed to short-term price movements.

​Shares can also be created and distributed to management and classified as voting shares or non-voting shares.

Don't think too hard about "Who gets the voting shares?"

The likes of media mogul, Rupert Murdoch, are the ones who get the  "full" voting rights shares, although, if you really want to be a little player with no real say, you can purchase some "limited" voting rights shares.

The one obvious feature about manmade creations is that if a human can create it, a human can change it, and a human can destroy the original purpose.

Even though there are obvious problems, Bitcoin is supposedly foolproof because each owner has a wallet and a key and nothing is done that is not without a public record within the community of users.

In 2008,  Satoshi Nakamoto created the blockchain computer technology.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? 

Remember what happened in 2008? 

Just in case you forgot, there was a banking crisis.

According to Patrick Forbes:

Looking at their wealth, power
 The Rothschilds are 
​in some way
 a truer reflection of the public perception of what an aristocrat is, and should be.
​ ​

Rothschilds are still stakeholders in the Economist and nearly thirty years ago predicted the new worldwide currency would be introduced in 2018.

Now that things are not going the way of the blood thirsty, ISIS complains Hillary is not President.

New strategies are in play but the goal is still the same.

In the world of the Talmudic community, the Kabbalah and the Illuminati, the god of this world is Lucifer, the light bearer, and the Creator is hated because...well...

The Lord God is really the BOSS after all and insists on righteousness, mercy, and justice, but judgment will be final and HE holds the keys to the prison.

Evil men don’t understand justice; but those who seek the Lord God understand it fully. (Proverbs 28:5)

Still the fight for control of this planet is very real and we are all affected by it in one way or the other.

The fascinating, controversial, and informative video below, which drew the ire of crypto-currency developers, reveals that  a devil could use blockchain to destroy the world  but a god will use it to benefit and liberate mankind.

However, the god, who is claimed to be the benefactor, in this case is the ruler of this world and that which is referred to as a devil is not Lucifer, but probably the One hated by all who do not understand the virtue of justice.

MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT THE IDEA OF BEING FOUND BY JESUS IS PREPOSTEROUS FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. Atheists Laugh Because They Reject The Truth; Calvinists Laugh Because They Think They Were Chosen As Special Before They Were Born. Those who read the Bible with a heart that desires the truth realize that Jesus searches the hearts of all people to see who is genuine and who is just a scoffer or mocker.

Going by the comments that have been made to this question on Quora, there is much mockery. On the many different forums and over the internet in general, mockery and irreverent comments are only permitted when it comes to the Son of God, Lord Jesus Christ. When it comes to mocking any other historical figure, such as Mohammad, all those scoffers and mockers would be banned.

This is what distinguishes those who have the truth and those who do not. An apt illustration is found in the comparison of any one of the 99% of the population mocking those who belong to the 1% of the population who possess the wealth. The 1% are not the ones hurting financially. Neither are any one of the five hundred families that control 25 per cent of the world’s wealth (if not more) worried what you call them, because they have what you do not possess. Only those who are missing out of something become upset when anybody mocks them.

Likewise, those who are found by Jesus are eternally saved, because He has circumcised their heart (Deuteronomy 30:6) and given them assurance of eternal salvation—the joy of salvation (Psalm 51:12). Unfortunately, people—theologians included—do not understand that this is really what Jesus means when saying that you did not choose me, but I chose you. Only those who have the experience understand this.

When a person is found of God, this expression basically means that the person’s name is still written in the book of Life and shall never be removed. But a person has to first seek God, and be found desiring to know the truth, before they are found of God to be hating evil and longing for true righteousness.
  • And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Daniel 12:1
  • Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:6-9)
  • For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11–13)
  • Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6)
People have to be genuine when seeking to know Lord Jesus Christ—even to have prayers answered. Hypocrites do not get in the door, even if they were fortunate enough to have a look.
  • For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20)
  • But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who would enter to go in. (Matthew 23:13)
Isaiah said that if your thoughts and ways are not those of God, then you need to forsake them. However, even if you desire to forsake them, unless you hate those evil ways, the Son of God will not choose you. But if you hate those evil ways of yours and you desire to know the ways and thoughts of God, then if you are truly genuine, the Son of God will choose you.
When you ask the question (Has Jesus found you?), we can think in terms of doing what? Disregarding the truth and reveling in mockery? Or seeking the truth and desiring to overcome evil and death?

Unfortunately, some people think that they are King David or Jeremiah or Paul the Apostle and they were chosen before they were born. Those who hold that what was specifically said of these individuals applies to them. Besides this, they often claim that they were chosen as the Twelve disciples of Jesus were chosen. They quote the texts that refer to Jesus choosing the twelve and assert that these refer to them, but they overlook that one of those twelve disciples was a devil.
  • Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” (John 6:70)
Unless people seek Lord Jesus Christ, they will never be found by Him truly desiring to know Him. If you claim you are found of Jesus, and you have not sort Him out, then it will be doubtful you will possess the joy of salvation—it does not leave once a person is circumcised of heart by the Son of God.

  • And when he had removed him [Saul], he raised up David to be their king; of whom he testified and said, ‘I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’ (Acts 13:22)

King David was found by the Son of God to possess a heart that desired what He desired. If people were robots, King David would not have been found to possess a heart after God's heart. Only when something is lost is it found. Unfortunately, people believe that they did not need to be found, contrary to the what the Bible states, because the like to think they were especially chosen before the foundation of the world. A little deception is sufficient for corruption to rot the heart. Therefore, seek the Lord while he may be found. (2 Chronicles 15:2)
