      THE  TELEVISION  PREACHERS have made million and millions of dollars off the backs of poor folks, ignorant of what God's word actually says. They spread and repeat over and over the same simple lie....
      Here is the lie....
      All one has to do to be saved, and achieve everlasting life in heaven is to say that one believes in Jesus Christ,  and that they have accepted Jesus into their "hearts."NOTHING  COULD  BE  FURTHER  FROM  THE  TRUTH !
      While duping the poor people out of their money,  these so called preachers live a rich lifestyle....  amassing huge estates ~~~ and become best friends with powerful politicians...  and when they die,  the news media eulogizes them over and over..... Nothing these "so called"  preachers say or do matches up, with what Jesus Christ did or said!
      Here is the truth of the matter.....  The road to life is a difficult road,  not an easy road.  Those traveling on the road to life are constantly trying their best to imitate Jesus....
      They preach the Kingdom message,  just as Jesus did!  They do not get involved with politics....  imitating Jesus.  They do not learn war any more....  imitating Jesus. They worship the same Almighty God that Jesus worships....  Jehovah God!
      They pray to the same Almighty God that Jesus prays to!
      SATAN  AND  THE  DEMONS  are believers....  and they shudder when they think about it!   SEE  James 2:19.
      Thank  you,  dear  Brother  Elder
      MATTHEW  10 : 8

      ADDITION....
      Televangelists have been mass-media fixtures since the 1970s, when preachers retooled their messages to link Christian beliefs with a materialistic pursuit of wealth. However, getting a detailed account of most TV preachers' salaries has often been elusive, since many of these organizations release little or no financial data. The picture that has emerged is pieced together from accounts of lavish lifestyles, homes and book deals, with many television preachers netting tens to hundreds of millions of dollars.

      Nice story! It's ok to be a little cracked!! ⚱?⚱
      An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.
      One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
      For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.
      Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable    that it could only do half of     what it had been made to do.
      After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”
      The old woman smiled, “Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side?”
      “That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.”
      “For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”
      Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.
      You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.
      So, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the road.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. What percentage of children in Bolivia can purchase an iPad?
      I remember years ago adapting to the country I would visit by NOT making a "showy display of one's means of life"
      How is this an appropriate way to teach the world's poorest children to read, write and learn about the Bible?
       
      Jesus could have easily created a 3D holographic display of the heavenly realms for all to see in Jerusalem... But did he?
      Just because we CAN make great cartoons that entertain children... is that our true purpose?
      Did Jesus say "for this I came into the world to show cartoons to children"?
       
      We should spend more time teaching the Bible AND caring for their physical needs rather than be known as the new "Hi Tech" rich people that wander the earth showing first world PIXAR cartoons about the Bible to children.
      Just me venting tonight.....
      Can you tell I am in a cantankerous mood tonight.... UGH!!!

      The 35,452-square-foot building is the third location for Traders Point Christian Church
       
      Traders Point Christian Church has bought the historic former Jehovah's Witness assembly hall Downtown for $2.7 million using a gift from a "generous person" in the congregation.
      The 35,452-square-foot building at 1201 N. Delaware St. is the third location and second auxiliary location for the Whitestown megachurch. Earlier this year, Traders Point launched a Carmel location, and 750 people regularly attend services there.
      "We became very regional," Executive Pastor Jake Barker said. "We've got a few hundred people Downtown that are currently driving out of Downtown to attend the north or northwest Indy Traders Point campus."
      Barker declined to identify the congregation member who donated the funds for the building.
      Traders Point bought the Downtown location on June 1, according to property records. The church will begin services there in January. It started hosting monthly gatherings Aug. 11.
      Traders Point  will spend about $2 million to renovate the building, church spokeswoman Erica Thomas said. It has been vacant since 2012, listed at that time for $2.9 million. The limestone structure was built in 1912, and the auditorium was renovated in 1995. Thomas said the auditorium could seat as many as 1,200 people.
      The historic neo-classical revival building with Tuscan pillars was designed by Chicago architect Spencer Solon Beman for the Second Church of Christ Scientists. It sold the building to the Baptist Church in 1968, which then sold it to Jehovah's Witnesses in 1978.

      "We believe we'll be more engaged and serve the city if there's a church closer to where you live," Downtown Pastor Pete Kinder said. "We had been praying about that building in some way."
      Before moving Downtown with his wife and two kids, Kinder spent three years as a pastor in student ministries at both of the suburban Traders Point locations, 6590 S. Indianapolis Road in Whitestown and 3525 W. 126th St. in Carmel. Kinder said the congregation is growing but declined to say how much.
      "It's so much less about how much we're growing, and it's really about loving the city," he said. "At the end of the day, we just love Jesus so much. We're just really excited to share his love. For us, it's less about the numbers and more about loving people."

      Soyons reconnaissant devant toutes ses oeuvres
       
      Le Dieu des dieux, Jéhovah, parle ;
      il convoque la terre
      depuis le soleil levant jusqu’au soleil couchant.
      De Sion, la perfection de la beauté, Dieu rayonne.
      Notre Dieu viendra et ne pourra pas garder le silence.
      Il y a un feu dévorant devant lui,
      et une violente tempête fait rage autour de lui.
      Il convoque les cieux et la terre
      pour juger son peuple :
       « Rassemblez auprès de moi mes fidèles,
      ceux qui concluent une alliance avec moi par un sacrifice. »
      Les cieux proclament sa justice,
      car Dieu lui-même est Juge. (Sèla.)
       « Écoute, ô mon peuple, je vais parler ;
      ô Israël, je vais témoigner contre toi.
      Je suis Dieu, ton Dieu.
      Ce n’est pas pour tes sacrifices que je te réprimande,
      ni pour tes holocaustes, qui sont constamment devant moi.
      Je n’ai pas besoin de prendre un taureau de ta maison
      ni des boucs de tes enclos.
      Car tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt m’appartiennent,
      même les bêtes sur mille montagnes.
      Je connais tous les oiseaux des montagnes;
      les innombrables animaux des champs sont à moi.
      Si j’avais faim, je ne te le dirais pas,
      car le sol productif m’appartient, avec tout ce qui s’y trouve.
      Vais-je manger la viande des taureaux
      et boire le sang des boucs?
      Offre en sacrifice à Dieu ta reconnaissance
      et acquitte-toi des vœux que tu as faits au Très-Haut;
      appelle-moi en temps de détresse.
      Je te secourrai, et tu me glorifieras. »
      Mais Dieu dira au méchant :
      « De quel droit récites-tu mes prescriptions
      ou parles-tu de mon alliance?
      Car tu détestes la discipline,
      et sans cesse tu tournes le dos à mes paroles.
      Quand tu vois un voleur, tu l’approuves,
      et tu fréquentes les personnes adultères.
      Avec ta bouche, tu répands le mal,
      et tu attaches la tromperie à ta langue.
      Tu t’assieds et tu parles contre ton frère;
      tu révèles les défauts du fils de ta propre mère.
      Quand tu faisais ces choses, je gardais le silence,
      alors tu t’es dit que j’étais comme toi.
      Mais, à présent, je vais te réprimander
      et exposer ce que j’ai contre toi.
      Réfléchissez à ceci, s’il vous plaît, vous qui oubliez Dieu,
      sinon je vous déchirerai et il n’y aura personne pour vous secourir.
      Celui qui offre en sacrifice sa reconnaissance me glorifie ;
      et à celui qui est déterminé à bien agir
      je ferai voir le salut de Dieu. »

      Dieu aime les prières et la sincérité de ses serviteurs humbles
       
      Dieu aime la bonté de coeur envers autrui et non aux sacrifices et holocaustes d'animaux sauvages et domistiques.
      Dans ton amour fidèle, accorde-moi ta faveur, ô Dieu.
      Dans ta grande miséricorde, efface mes transgressions.
      Lave-moi complètement de ma faute
      et purifie-moi de mon péché.
      Car je suis bien conscient de mes transgressions,
      et mon péché est constamment devant moi.
      C’est contre toi que j'ai failli, oui j'ai fait le mal
      devant tes yeux.
      Ainsi, tu es juste quand tu parles,
      tu es droit quand tu juges.
      Vois ! Je suis né coupable
      et, depuis l’instant où ma mère m’a conçu, je suis pécheur.
      Vois ! Tu prends plaisir à la vérité dans le fond du cœur;
      enseigne-moi la vraie sagesse, au plus profond de moi.
      Purifie-moi de mon péché avec l’hysope, pour que je sois pur;
      lave-moi, pour que je sois plus blanc que la neige.
      Fais-moi entendre le son de l’allégresse et de la joie,
      pour que les os que tu as broyés se réjouissent.
      Détourne ton visage de mes péchés
      et efface toutes mes fautes.
      Crée en moi un cœur pur, ô Dieu,
      et mets en moi un esprit nouveau, ferme.
      Ne me chasse pas de ta présence ;
      ne m’enlève pas ton esprit saint.
      Redonne-moi la joie d’être sauvé par toi;
      éveille en moi la volonté de t’obéir.
      Je veux enseigner tes chemins aux transgresseurs,
      pour que les pécheurs reviennent à toi.
      Libère-moi de la culpabilité de meurtre, ô Dieu, mon Dieu sauveur,
      pour que ma langue puisse proclamer joyeusement ta justice.
      Ô Jéhovah, ouvre mes lèvres
      pour que ma bouche proclame ta louange.
      Car tu ne veux pas de sacrifices — autrement, j’en donnerais ;
      tu ne prends pas plaisir aux holocaustes.
      Le sacrifice qui plaît à Dieu, c’est un esprit brisé ;
      un cœur brisé et broyé, ô Dieu, tu ne le rejetteras pas.
      Dans ta bienveillance, agis pour le bien de Sion ;
      bâtis les murailles de Jérusalem.
      Alors tu prendras plaisir aux sacrifices de justice,
      aux holocaustes et aux offrandes totales ;
      alors on offrira des taureaux sur ton autel.

      Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I haven't been on here in a while, because as of August 17, 2021, I moved to Commerce, Texas! I was on the Commerce Housing Authority Waiting list since 2019!  I was selected to receive my one bedroom apartment, with my Chihuahua, with my precious Babyboy, who is now 16 years old! and I signed my lease on August 5, 2021, and had my gas turned on! We have a very small Congregation of 71 publishers, including me!  I haven't been to our beautiful Kingdomhall yet, but I did take some photos of the outside of it! I'm praying that we are one of the Congregations, chosen to start attending in person, our pilot meetings that many countries are now attending! Puerto Rico, Chile, and Australia are a few chosen right now! There's three Shirley's in my Congregation!  Two elderly sisters, one is white, she's No.1 , and another  elderly sister who is black, she's No.2, and I'm ShirleyL3!  One sister lovingly named me that! I feel special now! I haven't been given an assignment yet, but soon I will!  I really enjoyed our "POWERFUL by FAITH" Regional Convention so much!  We needed all the Spiritual Encouragement which focused on all of us! Also, all those beautiful videos, and the real life experiences! July 29, 1972, was my baptism date! 49 years now, serving Jehovah! I was 15 when I dedicated my life to serve Jehovah! I'm 64 years young now, and still faithfully serving Jehovah! I do telephone witnessing now! Which lots of people hang up on me, but I'm used to it now! All that matters is that I'm giving Jehovah my best!  I'm so excited about our Special Campaign now!  Only Jehovah reads hearts!  Hopefully lots of people will show some interest!  This year 2021 is almost over! I received both doses of Moderna, and have to wait till I turn 65 in May, to receive my Booster shot! We lost over 17, 000 brothers and sisters to Covid-19! My prayers are with them and their families! Soon, as Jehovah has promised, they will welcome their loved ones back in their lives, during the resurrection! I love it here so much, everyone is very friendly! I just love my Congregation too! I hope everyone makes their personal decision to get vaccinated! Also I hope everyone has a great rest of 2021! Let's see what Jehovah has in store for us in 2022! Were having our Circuit Assembly on November 27, 2021!  Take care of yourselves, be safe, and always trust in Jehovah!!!  Have a great weekend everybody, agape love, Sister Shirley Ann Lowery!
