Conformity

StopAndPrayTV

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)

One of the greatest dangers facing Christians is the temptation to become conformed to the things of the world around them, thus destroying their testimony for the Lord. We are specifically commanded, in fact, “Be not conformed to this world” (Romans 12:2). One cannot serve two masters, and the great privilege of the believer is the privilege of becoming conformed, not to a dying world, but to the living Christ.

But first we must be conformed to His death, dying to the world and its standards. The greatest desire of the apostle Paul was to “win Christ. . . . That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto…

VIDEO The Beatitudes Remarkable & Profound Expansion & Explanation

StopAndPrayTV

Jul 6, 2016

This is the introduction to the Beatitudes video series, which is an expansion and fleshing out of the Beatitudes (from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount). The Beatitudes are the famous words of Jesus from His Sermon on the Mount given in Matthew 5:1-12.

Someone sent me an amazing expansion of the Beatitudes (from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount). There have been innumerable (and many famous) interpretations, expansions, and dramatizations of the Gospels, such as The Robe, Ben Hur, The Spear, The Great Fisherman, The Silver Chalice, many TV series, many movies, and even Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (one of the highest grossing R-rated films in history) drew from multiple sources.

However, this interpretation/expansion/fleshing out of the Beatitudes is the best I have heard yet and it is remarkable. I hope you enjoy it! Please share this with anyone you think might enjoy this or…

Russian jet uses afterburners to buzz Navy aircraft in 24-minute incident over Black Sea | American Military News

Flurry of Thoughts

A Russian Su-30 fighter jet on Saturday buzzed and provoked a U.S. Navy aircraft while it was flying routinely over the Black Sea, according to reports. The Moscow-based Sputnik News claimed the Russian jet was “intercepting” the U.S. spy plane because it was reportedly “approaching the Russian state border in the Black Sea, according to Moscow.” The Russian jet crossed 50 feet in front of the Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft while engaging its afterburners, which forced the P-8 to enter its jet wash and caused “violent turbulence,” Fox News reported, pointing out that the incident lasted for 24 minutes.

Sierra Introduces New 6.5mm 107 gr Tipped MatchKing Bullet

Sierra Bullets

Sierra Bullets is proud to announce another addition to our popular Tipped MatchKing® line. In 2014, Sierra Bullets crowned the MatchKing® with an acetal resin tip that lowers the drag by improving the ballistic coefficient. We continue to expand this extremely popular line by adding another 6.5mm option in 107 gr.

While they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are not recommended for most hunting applications. Although MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are commonly used for varmint hunting, their design will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities on varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, BlitzKing®, or Varminter counterparts.

The new 6.5mm 107 grain Tipped MatchKing® bullets will be available in boxes of 500 bullets (#7407C) with a suggested retail of $205.07 per box and boxes of 100 bullet (#7407) with…

The “Mythical” Good Guy with a Gun.

Firing Pins

I had a discussion online with an old acquaintance from high school a short while back. It was shortly after a mass shooting event happened, and the discussion centered around what could be done to prevent or at least mitigate such occurrences in the future. Somehow he was under the mistaken belief that stronger laws would have prevented the tragedy, and had gone so far as to call out a political representative for being supported by the NRA, as though the NRA was in some way complicit.  Nevermind the fact that the perpetrator violated countless laws already. He asked me what I thought was the best solution and I told him my answer; get rid of gun free zones, and let armed self defenders, be armed. His reply was “oh, so your answer is the mythical good guy with a gun.” Mythical? I need to explain why the “good guy…

Denzel Washington: Stop Blaming The Prison System Black America – “It Starts At Home”

Give Me Liberty

H/T Freedom OutPost.

Denzel Washington is 100% correct the system is not to blame for so many black men being in prison.

The blame is the absent fathers that is encouraged by the Great Society programs started by DemocRat Lyndon B.Johnson.

Denzel Washington has starred in some of my favorite films.  From Man on Fire to The Manchurian Candidate to The Siege, I’ve always enjoyed the work he has produced.

I’ve also appreciated many of the things he has said publicly, as well.

In his latest commentary, he voices to those of the community in Black America, and it’s a similar message to what Bill Cosby used to say, which got an uproar.

When it comes to filling up the prison system in America, Washington says that American blacks should not blame the system, but should look to solve the problem by starting at home.

“It starts at the home…
