By The Way.. Here are a few items of Interest

Joel Osteen, Mark Burnett
Team Up for Reality TV Series 
By Jeff Schapiro | Christian Post Reporter   Dec. 01 2011

“Joel Osteen, a bestselling author and pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, is teaming up with the producer of shows like “Survivor,” “The Voice” and “The Apprentice” to develop a new reality series.

"It's not going to be cameras following Joel or Victoria around the house all day,” said Donald Iloff, a spokesperson for the Osteens, in an interview with The Christian Post on Wednesday. He says Osteen's show will be more like “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” than “Jersey Shore,” in that its focus will be on helping people.
TMZ broke the news about the reality TV venture on Tuesday, saying Osteen and television producer Mark Burnett had reached an agreement to work on a new show together.
Burnett told TMZ the concept of the series is to show regular people going on mission trips around the United States with Osteen in an attempt to “start fixing things.””


Group opposed to Muslim TV show hit by 'terrorist hackers' 
By Douglas Stanglin, USA TODAY 12/13/2011

“The conservative Florida organization that pressured retailer Lowe's to yank its ads from a program about Muslim Americans claims that "terrorist hackers" attacked its website, forcing the group to shut it down.
The Florida Family Association, based in Tampa, objected to the TLC program All-American Muslim, saying it was "propaganda" that hides the radical agenda of Muslims. The program features five Muslim-American families in Dearborn, Mich.
David Caton, executive director of FFA, says intruders hacked into 15 levels of security, prompting them to shut down the system, The St. Petersburg Times reports. He also says he has received a death threat as well as a tip Monday night that the site would be attacked.
"In a country that supposedly embraces free speech, those that oppose our position have no qualms about destroying our free speech," Caton tells The Times. "This is the worst I've seen any group respond."
[Ed: The show wasn't controversial until Lowe's, McDonald's,  Walmart, and a half dozen others — pulled   their commercials.]

Walid Shoebat has this to say about the program
All-American Muslim  

The brand new TV show featured on Cable TV channel TLC tries to depict Muslims as "ordinary patriotic" Americans but fails to deliver in its very first episode by featuring a radical Shia Imam Husham Al- Husainy. In the first episode the Imam is featured marrying a male convert to Islam to a secular Muslim women. 

The Imam was exposed on the Sean Hannity Show back in February 2007. I remember listening to the actual interview live in which it was obvious the Imam supports Hezbollah a terror entity listed by the State Department. The Imam hates the the USA and Israel. You can hear in the interview what a nut job the Imam is and his gymnastics and crazy attacks in order to avoid answering simple questions.

The main stream media continues to propagate the illusion of a moderate Islam and moderate Muslims. The only moderate Muslims that can exist and based on the way the show is presented are the Muslims who act in a very secular way and the Muslims who follow the faith closely are a major problem when it both comes to sympathizing with terror or actually supporting it. Even the "secular" Muslims still have tribal instinct to side with the tribe rather than side with righteousness. We will continue to monitor the show as it progresses through the season.

Dear Pastor Joel Osteen Shame on You!

Dear Pastor Joel Osteen,   Shame on You!

I have just watched your remarks regarding Mitt Romney and his Mormon faith, recorded on video.

Shame on you!  You have given the enemies of the Cross a great victory. Either through sheer ignorance of the Word or your apparent desire to never offend anyone, regardless of their sins, you have handed the Mormons a huge PR gift. You have insulted and denigrated the many former Mormons like me who have spent their lives bringing Mormons the truth and to the Real Jesus, who died for their sins on Calvary. You have defined our ministries and my life’s work as worthless.

You emphatically state: The Mormons are Christian.  Are you completely ignorant of the fact that the Mormons have taught as a foundational doctrine that the creeds of all the Christian churches are abominations in the Mormons’ god’s sight?  

What kind of research or study did you undertake before you made this foolish and unbiblical utterance? Did you check with Pastor Jeffress, a godly, Christian pastor? Or with Mitt Romney, a man working out his own godhood?  Or did you just toss this out from your own lack of knowledge or as some sort of sweet sound bite?

Are you totally unaware that they have taught in their sacred temples for over a century that you and all other Christian pastors are corrupt hirelings of Satan, that you and your church are part of the great and abominable church and the whore of all the earth?  

Did you not know that Mormonism teaches a restorationist theology, stating that the gates of hell did prevail against the Church and teaching that all power and authority were lost until God chose Joseph Smith to be his holy prophet to restore all things and lead this last dispensation of time?

Did you not know that the LDS church teaches they have the only true church, the only true prophet, the only true priesthood, and the only true scripture? That all others are false? That there is NO personal salvation outside their church?

Didn’t you know that the god of Mormonism is an exalted man-god who once lived on another planet in some other galaxy? That he  earned his godhood through his good works and now lives on a planet near the great star Kolob with a harem of his many goddesses, making spirit babies to come to this earth to earn [their own] godhoods?

You say you “heard Romney say that Jesus is the Son of God and is his Savior -- and that is one of the "core issues."

You announced to the world, with a broad smile, that the Mormon Church and Romney are Christian and that the differences between Mormonism and orthodox Christianity are simply the same as the differences between Baptists and other denominations. How could you, as the pastor of one of our largest churches, say that so glibly?

Don’t you know that Mitt Romney is a man who is earning his own godhood and plans to people his own planet? That Romney is a Mormon High Priest in the Melchizedek priesthood?  That the Mormons have usurped that holy priesthood as their own?

To pronounce them Christians, do you then agree with the Mormon doctrine that the Mormon Jesus is the brother of Lucifer? That he became ‘savior’ by a vote of a council of gods? That He is not the Word become flesh, not God come in the flesh, but was conceived through an act of sex by the Mormon god and one of his own daughters, Mary?

To have publicly accepted their Christianity, you must apparently concur that Jesus did not die as ransom for our sins on the Cross, but suffered for us in the garden, sweating great drops of blood, placing our personal salvation as conditional upon our works and our obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Mormon gospel. That Jesus’ death on Calvary merely gives us all resurrection so that we may be judged for our works and obedience.

Why do you think that the Mormons have over 50,000 missionaries out, primarily targeting Christians weak in the faith? If they are Christians, why do they target other Christians?

It is because they have success in seducing people who have not been taught biblical truth and discernment  by pastors more eager to fill pews and sell books than guard their people from the ravening wolves who circle the flocks.

I am sorry, Pastor Osteen, but you have disgraced the Cross of Christ and bowed to some vile, politically correct dogma and publicly pronounced these doctrines of demons to be Christian.

These are not the quaint differences you alleged in your book tour interview. These are lies from the pit of hell. There are irreconcilable differences between orthodox Christianity and these antichrist teachings and doctrines.

The true Christian Church can never accept the Mormons as Christians until they confess these lies as sins and repent from them publicly.   If a Mormon can attend your church and be openly accepted as a Christian brother or sister without being called to the Cross and repentance, then you are teaching a false faith and need to repent and ask forgiveness from the Church and Pastor Jeffress, the pastor you have just defamed in your foolish utterances.

The Umbilical Cord of Life

 The Marvelous Umbilical Cord

How could it have ever Evolved?

Ed Decker

I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room a few months ago and was reading the only magazine available there, one all about mothers and babies.  With a choice of skimming through the magazine or staring at my feet, I chose the magazine.

One article was about the umbilical cord. It said something about there being over a hundred separate functions that this marvelous cord performed during the length of a pregnancy.  Any birth required all of the functions to perform properly.  Just as I got to that point, I was called into the examination room and went on with my visit and the day.

Fast forward to yesterday, as I sat in traffic, watching a small group of preschoolers, holding onto  a long rope, following one teacher and being followed by another. I guess they were sort of herding them down the street from a nearby park.

As I thought on the wonderfulness of young, adventurous children, my mind went back to that magazine and I mused that children such as those I was  watching and all my kids and grandkids could have never ‘evolved’ into such marvelous creatures. 

The umbilical cord makes such an evolutionary process absolutely impossible.

Think about it.

 The very first placental human child could never be born without all of the hundred plus functions up and working from day one. It couldn’t happen.

The Evolutionary theory of eons of trial and error could never produce a single birth any more than eons of swirling gases could end up as breathable air capable of sustaining life on earth.

Let’s take a look at the Umbilical Cord.
I have pulled these paragraphs from several web sites

What does the umbilical cord do?

“The umbilical cord in placental mammals connects a baby in the womb to its mother. It runs from an opening in the baby’s stomach (the umbilicus) to the placenta in the womb. The average cord is about 50cm (20 inches) long.   In the placenta, oxygen and food from the mother’s bloodstream pass into her baby's bloodstream and are carried to the baby along the umbilical cord.
Blood circulates through vessels in the cord, which consists of:

  • one vein that carries blood rich in oxygen and nutrients from you to your baby
  • two arteries that return deoxygenated blood and waste products, such as carbon dioxide, from your baby back to the placenta

These blood vessels are enclosed and protected by a sticky substance called Wharton’s jelly, which itself is covered by a layer of membrane called the amnion.

Towards the end of a pregnancy, the placenta passes antibodies through the umbilical cord from mother to baby, giving it immunity from infections for about three months after birth. However, it only passes on antibodies that its mother already has.

“Then, what are the functions of umbilical cord? Mainly, it has three different functions. The first function is that it is able to serve the fetus a blood source. It is very important since the fetus is not able to breathe. It does not have either functioning lungs or an oxygen source. Also, it serves the fetus oxygen through the blood to serve the life of the fetus.

The second main function of the umbilical cord is that it is to serve the fetus a nutrients source such as proteins, calories, and fats as well. In addition, it is also able to serve the nutrients and also vitamins.

The last function of this cord is that it is able to transfer the deoxygenated and waste products away out of the fetus. It transfers those substances to the maternal circulation in which they can be processed and then excreted.

Then, what are the features that umbilical cord has? Basically, it is made of a substance which is known as Wharton's Jelly, connective tissue or skin. It carries some features such as one vein which has two arteries and oxygenated blood. The vein of the umbilical goes along the way to the liver of the fetus.

Here, it splits become two parts. One part of this vein is to supply the blood to the hepatic poral vein. It works to supply the blood to the liver. The other one is called as the ductus venosus. It is supply the blood to the whole human body of up 80%. It allows the vital nutrients such as oxygen to flow all over the fetus.” Source:

Another amazing thing about the umbilical cord. When the newborn takes that first breath, the whole thing reverses turns the whole job over to the baby.

Back to my first premise: The first and all following placental embryos , no matter how well into evolution they could ever be, could never  have survived to  full term and birth, without ALL the above things working perfectly.

It just could not.

Never. Ever.

Out of Work? Get your Resume to the top of that pile!

The other day, I was watching a local news program when they covered a story abut a company with just one opening. They were buried in resumes sent in via email and finally posted that all resumes had to be hand delivered to their offices.

The news reporter stood in the reception area of the company in front of a box with the notice “ Drop Resumes in this box.” She said that in the first hour of business, 173 resumes had been dropped in the box.

The Human Resources manager said that in sorting though the many hundreds of resumes, she never went beyond page one in the first round of sorting and never spent more than 10 seconds on any single resume. In the second round of screening, she usually limited her view to 30 seconds.

It wasn’t until a third pass that she would spend more than 60 seconds. My point is that you have 5 to 10 seconds to capture the eye of someone looking through a stack of resumes.

A recent report stated that the average time of unemployment today is 42 weeks. Some of you have been out of work for longer. Some have just given up. One friend said he sent out over 500 resumes a month for a year before he had his first interview, for a job 3 steps down from his last.

Looking for work? Tired of mailing out hundreds of resumes without any response? Try this fresh approach. You probably will not get a job next month anyway. Might as well be showing your capabilities to someone! Knowing that you will get a 5 second scan of only the front page of your resume, Place the following notice in the dead center, with a few one line statements regarding your qualifications for the position:

One Month Free Trial


Let me work for you


For one full month

Try me out and see if I am the right one for this opening
I am willing to spend an entire month showing you that I am.

No Risk! No Obligation!

Romancing The Gods

Romancing the Gods 

Ed Decker
 July 19th, 2011

I was going through my old books the other day and came upon a small book, Gods, Sex and The Saints, by George B. Arbaugh, dated 1957.  The title was enough to get me into the book and I skimmed through Chapter Two, The Romance of The Gods. Interesting to say the least.

 Of course, it dealt with the doctrine of Plural Marriage and eternal procreation in the Celestial Kingdom, for all worthy Mormons… 

Let me give you my one-minute lecture on this doctrine, often referred to as
“The Law of Eternal Progression.

LDS doctrine teaches that we were all born as spirit children in our pre-existent life on a planet near the great star, Kolob.  Mormonism teaches that the god of this world, Elohim,  was once a man on some other planet, earned godhood, was exalted and with many goddess wives, sent to his heavenly orb, where through sexual union, he and his goddess wives have been busy procreating enough spirit children to people this earth, over which he exercises his godhood authority.

 Worthy LDS men and women, through obedience to all the laws and ordinances of the LDS gospel and through vows and sacred rituals in the LDS temple, learn the sacred words, handgrips and  ‘passwords’ needed to enter into Celestial glory and begin the same process for their own planet. That is a pretty simple explanation for the core of Mormon theology and religious practice.

 If you want specific LDS proof documentation, go to my website  and look at the articles, Do They Really Believe that? And The Law of Eternal Progression.

Back to the Subject at Hand

 Yesterday, I was reading a newsletter published by the Home Owners’ Association at the development where we live.  In it was a little section of “Interesting Facts.”  It was quoting an article the writer read in a recent issue of National Geographics.

 The article estimated that about 108 billion people have lived on the earth since the Stone Age. In another article I received by e-mail recently, the author estimated that it was about 10,000 years ago when the population began doubling. 

 From those figures, I stepped into the estimating game and came up with an amount that seems far more modest and is less than half the National Geographic figure.

OK. This is where I wanted to take you.  Now let us do a little Math.

 Let us say that Elohim and his wives have already procreated 50 billions spirit babies and sent them down to earth to gain bodies and earn godhood through the obedience to the Laws and Ordinances of the Mormon Gospel. 

 Ooops. Most were born before these Laws and Ordinances were available to test these people. Elohim sure goofed on that one.  Well, Thank Elohim for his catch-up doctrine of Baptism for the Dead.

 Because I am going to have many emails come in telling me that I did not account for Creationism or the flood, I am going to cut that obviously questionable number of people who have lived on the earth down to half and just deal with 25 Billions of people who have, to date, lived on the earth. Forget the National Geographic figure of 108 Billion for now. What do those people know, anyway?

What Kind of God Am I?

 To procreate that many spirit babies, Elohim would have to impregnate one goddess wife per minute for over 17 million days, nonstop. Or, if he was also working at being the operative god of mankind here on earth and only impregnated one goddess wife every ten minutes, it would take him 170 million days.  So many spirit babies running around. Must be a day-care nightmare. Especially since they have ‘form’ but no bodies yet.

 Mormon leaders, in the past, have stated that the pregnancy time in the Celestial Kingdom is about the same as earth. I have trouble with that, since the goddesses are carrying spirit babies, same in form, but without bodies, so I am going to take license here and opine that such an easier pregnancy is just a 6 months deal up there in Celestialville.

Where are you taking us, Ed?

 Ok. I have all the pieces together now for my outstanding conclusion. The fellows at National Geographic and the author of the Newsletter article gave estimates of how many people are being born on earth each year right now.  I am going to work with the lesser figure of 140 million.

 There are 3,153,600 seconds in a year. To produce that many spirit babies in a year, Elohim, in his powerful godhood, would have to complete approximately 4.5 [four and a half] sexual unions per second to keep up with the demand for spirit babies. Moreover, he must do that without falling over his scrambling goddesses as they swirled around him. Remember, Elohim and his goddesses have bodies of flesh and blood.  Real people.

 So much for taking care of any business as god of the earth. One might as well be praying to a stone for all the attention a prayer would have to get this guy’s attention. I wonder when he gets to eat or sleep.. no time for  it.

The Overbearing Goddesses of Mormonism

If we look at this from the Mormon goddess viewpoint, and use the two spirit babies/per year yardstick, we come up with this unfathomable fact. 

If 140 Million spirit babies are cycling through the Celestial day-care system per year right now and if we can agree that each goddess is giving birth to and nurturing  two babies per year, then  it requires 70 million
worthy Mormon goddesses to handle the twice a year,  5th of a second  encounters with the exalted hubby and the resulting child-rearing.

Let’s Get Real

 We have no clue on how many wives Elohim took with him to that planet near the great star Kolob, but here on earth, there have not been a total of 70 million Mormons to date since Joseph Smith restored this gospel of eternal sex, as Granny Geer used to call it.

 If Elohim’s home planet was actually big enough to produce that many goddesses for every worthy exalted man-god, than his earth was a whole lot different from this one he was given to exercise his godhood over.
Let's get real here. This is beyond absurd! This is  beyond idiotic. This is so far beyond human logic and intelligence that to accept this fable,  contrived by the vain imaginations of depraved leaders is to deny Christ and the reality of truth within God's Holy Word. It is beyond an anti-Christ spirit. It is the degenerate act of self-worship.  

Dear heavens, Mormons! Wake Up! 

These are not the doctrines of God,
but the very doctrines of demonized men who are
leading a whole people to a hell bound eternity

 The Bible Says

2 Tim 4:3, 4
           For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own  desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth,
and be turned aside to fables

 1 Tim 1:3-4
           As I urged you when I went into Macedonia-- remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach  no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless  genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly 

1 Tim 4:1
           Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,

 The Mormons who live this lie Are without Excuse 

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful;
but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man,
and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped
and served the creature more than the Creator
who is blessed for ever. Amen. Rom 1:20-25  
 2 Cor 11:13-15 
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into 
ministers of righteousness,
whose end will be according to their works.

If I Were In Charge

If I Were In Charge!

Things would be a lot different.

I would:

1. Bring all our troops home from the mid-east. Let them fight it out among themselves and we will deal with whomever survives.

2. Put our troops on our borders and get control of our own country again.

3. Stop all Foreign Aid, especially to those countries, like China, who seem to have enough money to be buying up our debt, and those who use our dollars to support terrorism and buy weapons.

This especially goes for the ‘Palestinian’ thugs led by terrorists who wish to kill every Jew and destroy our strongest ally in the Mideast.

I would put the entire Muslim world on notice that to attack Israel will be taken as an attack on the USA and we will immediately, without notice, bomb the attackers out of existence.

4. Rename those billions as Domestic Aid and use it to restore our destroyed educational system.

5. Require the many ‘bail-out’ banks to return every dime they have not invested in bailing out home-owners.

6. Stop the yelling about the top earners paying more of their fair share when 48% pay no Federal income taxes. Go to a flat ten percent tax for everyone. That will end all the hundreds of tax loopholes. We can lay off hundreds of thousands of IRS employees, close hundreds of IRS Centers.

7. Set a flat rate tax for every business as well. Too many large corporations are getting away with paying nothing while others are buried with tax debt.

8. Cancel the Death [inheritance] tax and Capital Gains tax. Let the money keep working in the marketplace where it belongs

9. Prohibit government avoidance of tax limits by increasing old and establishing new ‘fees’.

10. Freeze personal property tax for every home owner at the e level of tax when the homeowner turns 65. Too many elderly people are being forced out of their homes by over- taxation. It is cruel and unjust.

11. Put an end to the system of giant container ships coming here from China fully loaded with goods and returning with a ship full of empty containers. Either return with an established minimum [ie: 25%] of full containers or pay a steep per-empty -container fee.

12. Limit the term of office for the senate to 2 terms [12 years] and the House to three terms [6 years] and place them on the same retirement program [social security] and health care as their constituents. If they complete full service, retirement of 50% and shared health costs.. incrementally less retirement benefits if less time served. No more political dynasties.

Today, a congressman can serve one term, get yanked from office and still receive full pay and health care for life. Great deal for them. Terrible deal for America.

13. Cancel every Obama Care exemption given to the Unions and certain industrial groups. Make Government Health Care an option among those already in the marketplace.

14. Immediately remove any Congressman or Senator [like twitter boy Weiner] who has disgraced his/her office and they would not be eligible for any continued benefits. When they stand behind a podium and whimper that they take full responsibility, let that be part of it.

15. Require that no unrelated rider can be added to any Bill in process. This should end the practice of pork politics. Further, Line item veto must be implemented.

16. Put an immediate end to the practice of by-passing Congress by setting up Czars who report only to the President and who have taken power to control American businesses and public policies. Send them all packing.

17. Put an end to the huge expense of flying Congressional, Senate and Administration leaders around the world on our dime. One recent trip, the President used up 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to plant one little tree. Great photo op, but at a ridiculous cost.

18. Immediately open up oil drilling within our national boundaries, where some of the world’s most productive oil fields sit and get out from under the grip of the countries sucking billions of American dollars from us, most of whom receive American Foreign aid as a bonus.

19. Legalize personal use marijuana. Set standard for home growing for personal use. Regulate and tax though approved clinics/stores as we do booze. Take away the street business from the gangs/ criminals.

There are a thousand fold more deaths/car accidents from legal alcohol than marijuana. Set a standard for “under the influence” limits as we do for Alcohol. Release all personal use marijuana convicts from jail and make room for the real criminals.

20. Ship every illegal alien convicted of a crime back to the country of origin. If they will not take them back, close off all entry to USA for any of their citizens, send their Ambassadors home until they begin to take responsibility for their criminals.

21. Establish a working and valid guest worker program that will bring workers here but regulate them, tax their incomes and send them home at the end of work programs, letting them return every work program season.

22. Make English the legal language of America. Require all documents to be in English. For example, Auto Drivers’ license tests should be in English only. I don’t care if the guy can drive, but it concerns me that he can’t read the most basic road signs.

In the Schools systems in the Southwest, we are maintaining two schools systems and graduating kids who still can’t speak basic English. We are laying off teachers because we are going broke but still have to do dual programs.

What other country is doing that? Certainly not Mexico. If you want you kids to go to an English speaking school there, you have to go to a private school. It is the same throughout Europe. But, here, we pay for it in the public system. No child left behind.

What is being left behind is my right to live a decent life of hard work and earn the security I need for my old age. Those things are being taken away from me at every turn, at every session of congress and at every level of government control. Their solution to overspending and poor management is always to get the money from the ones who still  have a little left. Us.
