“As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene… No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.” – Albert Einstein
Ray Comfort: The problem with skeptics is that they haven’t done what Einstein did. They have never objectively and humbly read the gospels and looked at the life and words of Jesus of Nazareth. Those who do study Him will find themselves in a dilemma. Here is a Man who lived and spoke as if He was God in human flesh. If He was, His words and warnings were true. If He wasn’t who He said He was, then He was a liar like no other in history because He has deceived billions. If you believe He was a liar you will have the dilemma of His lies being the antithesis of His teachings. Take the time to study the life of Jesus of Nazareth for yourself. Do it, if you dare. I suggest that you read the gospel of John.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

Occupy Wall Street
by Thomas Sowell
The current Occupy Wall Street movement is the best illustration to date of what President Barack Obama’s America looks like. It is an America where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.
It is an America where history is rewritten to honor dictators, murderers and thieves. It is an America where violence, racism, hatred, class warfare and of murder are all promoted as acceptable means of overturning the American civil society.
It is an America where humans have been degraded to the level of animals: defecating in public, having sex in public, devoid of basic hygiene. It is an America where the basic tenets of a civil society, including faith, family, a free press and individual rights, are being rejected. It is an America where our founding documents have been now shredded and, with them, every person’s guaranteed liberties.
It is an America where, ultimately, great suffering will come to the American people, but the rulers like Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, liberal college professors, union bosses and all other loyal liberal/Communist Party members will live in opulent splendor.
It is the America that Obama and the Democrat Party have now created with all the willing assistance of the American media, Hollywood, unions, universities, the Communist Party of America, the Black Panthers and numerous anti-American foreign entities.
Barack Obama has brought more destruction upon this country in 3 years than has any other event in the history of our nation, but it is just the beginning of what he and his comrades are capable of.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another step in their plan for the annihilation of America.

A human being should
be able to

plan an invasion,
butcher a hog,
design a building,
write a sonnet,
set a bone,
comfort the dying,
program a computer,
cook a tasty meal,
Specialization is for insects.
— Robert Heinlein
