Just a little note also while on the subject of the enviroment... Why is it that very little money that is raised via anti pollution taxes actually goes on ways to prevent pollution?

Hi, there is so much that shows God exists and pinpoints the gospel of Jesus, such as prophecy, historical evidence of the place s and yet so many deny it, as if it's not enough. Yet there is and the barrier is hardness of heart causing spiritual blindness.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.


Hi Christianna
Thank you for another good post and yes there is so much evidence for the existence of God I don't see how anyone can deny it.
And yes the God of this age who is satan has certainly blinded many it surprising how many who say they don't believe have never read the bible how can one make a decision on something you no nothing about.
Evolution is taught in our schools as a fact but creation is not mentioned how can our children make an informed decision if the only have one side of the story.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi Goaty
Thank you for your reply yes where does the mon y go now about this for starters.

Salaries of Members of the United Kingdom Parliament
The basic annual salary of a Member of Parliament in the House of Commons was ?79,468, as of April 2019. In addition, MPs are able to claim allowances to cover the costs of running an office and employing staff, and maintaining a constituency residence and a residence in London. Additional salary is paid for appointments or additional

And this is only the lower paid I did read somewhere the PM gets 250.00 a month plus expenses.
The other problem is there any profit in rubbish or is it better to invest the money in something else armaments for example or these new rail links plenty of money for these thing but no money for the NHS and the poor and needy.
St Paul got it spot on when he said

.
1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows     


Love and Peace
Dave

Hi Davetaff and Goaty,

So many engage in what is seen and temporary and not on what is unseen and permanent, in God.
Therefore they don't know, don't realise or overlook that this world is destined for destruction both physically and spiritually.

Take earth quakes they are getting more frequent and with increasingly higher magnitudes. Don't they come to realisation ever that it is beyond human hands and minds to resolve.

They cannot resolve tsunamis and floods.
That's when they can turn away from their sin and turn to Christ. To reach out to our true and living God, who has promised a new heavens and earth.

That's the ultimate view but while we are living on the earth but not of the earth, we can show our love and care through the life of God in us, and that will involve deep care for each other and surroundings, providing it pinpoints Jesus and not vain deceptions, that make people feel good but are not actually making that connection to God.

For the eternal values of the gospel of Christ, are the priority.

Hi Christianna
Thank you for another good post the words unseen and permanent in God made me think is what is unseen and permanent which has been going on since the beginning of time a form of evolution from God in which there is no chance everything was planned from the beginning and that plan is mapped out for us in God's word.
So we have two evolutions to choose from man's which is wholly reliant on chance of shall we choose God's evolution where no chance is involved but is reliant on our creator God and his word which tells us everything that will happen up to the creation of man in his image which is Christ our Lord and beyond.

Love and Peace
Dave

That's a good way of putting it across - that with no belief in God, that all of the universe came by chance and accident.
I've seen it emphasised that certain conditions do show productions, from accident. Such as snow flakes.

Well, have they ever thought that certain weather conditions can produce something that shows thought and design and not a mass of dead matter,  with no design . That would mean that living creatures have no thoughts. That is what we would be if we were what those who believe there is no God say, and they and we wouldn't even be able to write this down or be thinking at all. Unless we were programmed.

Only machines and robots are programmed for such things but not able to think for themselves.

Some computerized robots now do think for themselves, but this did not come about through evolution. It was mans cleverness which has made it possible.

I heard this but they are not always in tune and can say things totally unrelated to the conversation, showing they could be preprogrammed for all possible questions, conversations and interaction.

Either that or they are spiritually imputed by the internet through wifi, through the spiritual forces and because they are machinery they will go wrong for themselves on occasions.

They do not have though a living soul.
