    My Sunday School class is in a study of the book, "Our Glorious God". From the chapter on santification I wanted to share with all of you how some things (the truth) has been distorted over recent years. Quoting from the book:

    We used to call them demons... now they call them spirit guides. We used to call them seances.... now they call it trance channeling. We used to call it reincarnation.... now they call it regression therapy. We used to call it the occult.... now they call it the New Age.

    Can you see how the above has been changed and downplayed so that folks can get caught up in this? Truth is, the Devil will delight in pulling people into an unhealthy occupation with himself, He has also used the reverse tactic and convinced many that he does not exist, so they are not ready to resist his attacks. He operates with sublety and is the ultimate pragmatic. He is the master of doubt and deceipt hence The great deceiver! Never forget that the supporting truth is in the Holy Spirit! 1 John 4:4 says, "Who is greater than Satan, dwells in each believer". Remember to bring the faith in Christ into the battle to repulse the Devil and claim the victory for the glory of God! My prayer for believers here is that we all put on the breastplate of God's truth with the sword of the Spirit to recognize and refute the lies of the liar. God is good all the time!!

    Very true. So much of the truth has been liberalized.

    Just read any newspaper or watch the news. Since mankinds downfall Satan has been in charge. And its really really obvious these days.

    3 Christian men (me being one of them) are mentoring 4 young men as we build a dirt track race car. One of the things that these young men seem to think is maybe far fetched, is how the devil can be real. I struggle every time it is my turn to do our weekly lesson with these young men. I want them to know that I have experienced first hand the deceit you mention, but how do we convince the up and coming men who will be the future role models/father figures that he is REAL, and crafty and a liar?

    Hi Guys,

    Yep, The Bible says that in the last days that evil will be taken for good and good for evil.....exactly what we see happening in all of society today.:Smarty:

    Boy, isn't that the truth. We need to stay on the straight and narrow and not lose focus. It will not get any easier either.

    I read somewhere in the bible that another sign of the end times was that mothers would kill their own children. Can you imagine? Oh yeah, abortion.

    The real truth is..............

    The real truth is, that none of this has much to do with V/8 Buick or any other car-type topic. Surely there are other web-sites where one can air ones beliefs in the unprovable and not clutter up the best Buick site there is!

    Or, maybe that's exactly what this section of the forum IS about, "divine intervention" and "like minded members" would have been my tip off.

    Northern Buick - Please go back to the main forum page and read the description for this section. It was put here by the OWNERS of this board, and has their blessing.

    If you truly believe cars are the most important things in one's life - that's rather sad. I would hope you'd reconsider your position on the whole subject. It's certainly in your best interest.

    Granted, Buicks are what drew us all here......but, there's MUCH more to life than just that. Just take a look at many of the other posts in this section. There's been some really tough times for far too many people on this board. It's important that we are able to say or do whatever we can to be of assistance to one another.

    I see I live only about 1/2 hour from you. Do you get out to some of the cruise nights? Buffalo Bills/Pony Corral and such? I would love to talk cars some time, and if you were interested, also my beliefs about the unprovable. These 2 things are my favorite topics!!!

    I am grateful for this forum and consider it to be a real blessing. Truth known, I fully believe we owe everything to God. Wouldn't have my Buicks and His rich blessings without His wonderful grace and love. Undeserved for sure. Besides, He did make the ultimate supreme sacrifice by giving his only Son to come to this world and die for you and I so that we might know Him and eternal everlasting life! That is love personified. I frequent some other sites that have a spiritual forum bundled in with politics and it does not lend itself to the same context as this one does. When politics and religion are bundled into one forum, you tend to get heated debates and those that are non-believers attacking those who have Christian beliefs. Don't believe it? Check out those forums at ( Kawasaki motorcycle site) and Turbo Stick around, ask questions here and I think you might like it. We must focus on Him and not of things of this world. Things are only "stuff" and will not matter in the grand scheme of things. It boils down to a Man on the cross and what He did for us. We must ask ourselves one important question, Where will I spend eternity once I die? If we answer Heaven, we must be able to know for sure why we answer in that manner. Hoping to get to Heaven or an answer of "don't know" places one on unfirm ground. Truth known, we will spend eternity in one of two places- Heaven or hell. I know this is harsh but it is biblical. There is one way to have eternal life in Heaven and that is in acceptance in His son as your personal savior. This includes a process of turning from one's sin and repentance of those sins. The greatest gift ever known is free for the taking but the Lord gives us freewill to accept or reject. Knowing Him WILL change your life and give you a peace and contentment that only He can provide through His Holy Spirit! Jesus = the only perfect individual who ever lived and set foot on this earth. If anyone has questions, we can enter into a dialogue and any of us here that know Him can help those who seek Him come to a saving grace. Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birthday of the Messiah!

    Did any of you self appointed keepers of the truth stop to "think" that all of this blather belongs in a religious blog where all of you can stir each other into a frenzy of tongues as long as you like? On the other hand, this is pretty amusing, and a helpful insight into where the good ole USA is heading educationally...
