    I used it for a time but after finding that by simply having their app on a phone you are giving them complete unfettered access to everything you do on any website, all your pictures, your location data, the microphone and cameras and the same goes for Google as well I said enough. Now we are seeing advertisers targeting people based off their conversations when they are not on their phones. When is enough enough?

    As a society we have given away our rights not had them taken. I am not by any means a technophobe however the complete and total reliance on technology is turning people into automatons.

    Everywhere I go all I see are people staring into phones.

    It has always struck me when one brings up confessing your sins that so many people will physically recoil as if slapped or stung by a bee. Then, they will argue vehemently why one should NOT confess to anyone and how this is something between them and God.

    It is one of the biggest gifts one could have to unburden themselves from their sin and seek repentance and absolution.

    I have always taken it to be a sign of the age.

    Yes don. I think initially the resistance comes from a kind of pride that can't allow another--in this case the priest--see their "warts" and yet the grace and comfort and relief that follow make confession one of the very great gifts of God to the Church. It does take humility to kneel before the priest knowing that you are confessing to Christ. It is great training in humility.

    Just a week or two ago, one of my employees received a whole series, perhaps twenty, of no-caller-id phone calls on his i-phone. When he answered a few, there was no reply. Shortly after, he received a call from his bank informing him of an attempt to hack his credit card account. Luckily, the attempt was foiled...this time. My advice to him was to scrap his 'smart' phone and get a 'stupid' one. Those old Nokias are basic and almost indestructible.

    Ironically, the only way to communicate their repentance 'between them and God' is through His representative in the confessional.
  6. I had a recent conversation with a young man who is currently on five different types of medication uppers and downers, his child hood wasn't good and affected him badly, after talking to him I felt his doctor wasn't helping him with just prescribing tablets, the stunning part of the conversation was how he described how young people today hide away in their rooms with their phones/tablets and can lye all day and night in bed, I felt that this is the problem when I was young I would have lasted an hour tops lying in my bedroom before I would have been bored silly and had to get up and face the world. to me its anti social media..

    I have been thinking about this for awhile. I might just do it.

    This morning, I just read in a book of divine revelations, a message coming from the Virgin Mary to Amparo Cuevas of El Escorial (Spain) "that the asteroide called "EROS" will shine upon humanity during the Warning. It will seem that the world is in flame and it will be terrible". (I think this is the internal burning we will feel inside the body, depending on our personal state of grace). The author of the book continues that "so when we will notice that EROS (=in fact a "planetoid") approaches the earth (and to be able to do this, it will have to change its direction), we will know that the Warning is close".

    I do believe that the miracle of the Sun at Fatima was a symbolic precursor of a type for what could actually occur in the future time that will be tied to Fatima. This could be another moment of feeling that the world was ending, necessitating cries for mercy and accompanying repentance. And perhaps it will look again like the sun (or that "2nd" sun as mentioned in other messages)....as it will seem to be approaching the earth, but in the end resulting in the great relief of protection by the Mother and causing a real sense of God's love and mercy. And people will change, not just outwardly but inwardly.

    I think that too. And the sun will this time be that asteroid.

    There was a series called "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" having to do with a comedy sketch show like Saturday Night Live that I thought was excellent, if only for the respectful way they dealt with issues of religion (especially between Christianity and the secular world). One of the producers (played by Bradley Whitford) is arguing with one of the cast (played by Sarah Paulson) who is a Christian. Sarah is saying Bradley should pray to G_D for help with a medical problem with his newborn daughter. She gives him some reasons why he should get on his knees to thank G_D for all Bradley has been given. One of the reasons is that it's a sign of humility. Bradley responds with an angry rant because he sees that everything he has is because he worked for and earned himself. At the end, the last scene, Bradley is looking through the nursery window at his daughter, who has come through the crisis, and he slowly gets on his knees -- something he has that he didn't work for or earn.

    Kneeling before someone else is one of the most humbling experiences ever. Yes, we can confess our sins directly to G_D, but by kneeling before someone, you are expressing humility before G_D.

    I have an old Nokia years AED, and it has done me fine. Very basic and uncomplicated. No security issues either.

    It's come to this:

    Holy smoke! The church of cannabis

    As congregations dwindle, a new religion is lighting up Denver, Colorado. Aaron Millar joins the ‘elevationists’ of the International Church of Cannabis who worship the weed

    From the outside all appears normal: red-brick towers, blocky turrets, a classic city church in an otherwise leafy suburb of Denver. But there are giveaways. The three front doors and arched window facade have been spray-painted with silver galaxies and bright, happy-face planets.

    And then there’s Lee: a former Bible quiz champion, raised in a strict evangelical Christian home, he has the credentials of a preacher if not the look: bushy hipster beard and long messy hair, dark bags under his eyes and the whiff of old smoke on his shirt. It feels more like the start of an AA meeting than a spiritual encounter. But then he starts to speak.

    “Being an elevationist [the term they’ve coined for the theology of the new church] means being an explorer,” Lee begins. “Our spiritual journey is one of self-discovery, not one of dogma. We believe there is no one-path solution to life’s big questions. This is simply a supportive place for each one of us to find a pathway to our own spirituality, whatever that may be.” Think of it like the pick ’n’ mix of belief. There is no doctrine, no creed, no scripture or book. Simply choose bits of whatever world religions work for you, or make something up yourself, mix it all together, and see if it tastes good. “There are as many pathways to being an elevationist as there are elevationists,” Lee says. Spirituality shouldn’t be a prescription; it should be an adventure. It’s about seeking, not being told what to find.

    It’s an idea that will strike a chord with many people. Church attendance in the UK is on the decline. Last year only 1.4% of the population attended Sunday Anglican services – the lowest level ever recorded. There is a significant demographic of people who simply can’t relate to organised religion or outright oppose it on principle. Being able to explore your own path, within a supportive space, could help fill that widening spiritual deficit.

    But here’s where they may lose you. That journey of self-discovery, says Lee, is enhanced by ritual cannabis use. “We have been programmed to behave and think in certain ways,” he says. “Cannabis helps elevationists tear down those false realities.”

    A most faboulus and rounded explanation of the ultimate Dogma of our society. Pure 100% relativism...absolutely 'pure'...like pure cannabis :notworthy:

    This is being defended by MSM: violent far left antifa protesters who were hurling bricks and paint bombs and using blowtorches protesters at the Charlottesville event.

    "Ana Navarro: No, no, no, no. You can’t say this is both sides of violence. What we saw was some white supremacists and then what we saw was some brave people risking their lives and putting themselves in between white supremacists and what they were doing.


    You just cannot trust CNN to report the truth anymore.

    All they need now is to purchase some of NK's "little" nukes and they can do this with the billions of taxpayer money Obama transferred to them (as well as the bonus for getting our hostages back)....in the dead of night! With this fulfilled plan Iran can also easily fulfill Natan's NDE predictions....Nuking Israel.
