You can lead a dancer to a pole, and she will dance, or you can take a pole to a dancer and she still will dance. The type of dance depends on the results of the pole’s pollsters. The poll of the dancer’s pole dance is weighed in by tips. The bolder the dance, the bigger the tips. Well, that’s the way I think it works.
Political campaigns live by polls. All politicians pay close attention to the polls. More often than not, they dance to polls. Once elected, one may find many of them in DC night clubs watching dancers on poles and casting poll votes on their performances.
The first time I heard of a “Generation Z” was in the article below. Does not in no way, shape, fashion or form make a chromosome Z! Guess those of the feminist movement could have been called Generation W, but their chromosome ID is “XX” while males is “XY”, but generations go by single letters as in Generation X, but now there is a gender X with a missing chromosome. One of the chromosome pairs must have been dropped and telepathically transgender-migrated to another gender in another evolving unidentified generation with a missing link in identity. (See “What is One’s Sex – Biology or Psychology?” in main menu.)
The gender confusion today (WXYZ) could be a 1/2 DNA or RNA haploid type chromosome virus with a bio-psycho-engineered S spike so-proto-chaos protein! Is there a genetically engineered pair “CC” (Completely Confused, Creepy Chaos or Classic Comedy) of chromosomes for transgenders?
Today there are LBGT+ ministers, bishops, pastors and all sorts of teachers and care personal instructing (confusing) children. Oh yea, there is that sexual abuse and coverup problem too!
False claims are made about our Lord and savior!
From the article: 40 Percent of Generation Z Believes Jesus Sinned: State of the Bible Survey
The State of the Bible 2022 released its findings recently, revealing that about 40 percent of Generation Z believe that Jesus was a human and sinned like other humans when he lived on earth.
About 37 percent of Generation X said the same, and 35 percent of both millennials and boomers agreed. The elderly polled in the study had the lowest numbers, with 26 percent believing Jesus sinned, Kentucky Today reports.
Jesus was the Word that became flesh and was the UNBLIMSHED LAMB OF GOD! On average, a little over 1/3 of all Christians made up from the five Generations X, Z, M, B and E (the elderly) have zapped biblical truth into heresy.
[40 + 37 + 35 + 26 ÷ 4 = 34.5]
Thought that most of the baby boomers were the elderly, except the very few WW II vets left who were the parents and/or grandparents of the baby booming boomers. I’m 67 born in 1954. My dad was too young for WW II and my granddad was in WW I.
One third of pastors say political views of church members are concerning while almost half find them “challenging to navigate”. I think most would rather build a bridge over troubled waters than risk sailing through them trying to comfort and guide the sheep through times of trouble.
From the article: 44 Percent of Pastors Say Members’ Political Views Are Problematic, Challenging
The political views of church members are a concern for more than one-third of America’s Protestant pastors, who also say members too often have “strong opinions about nonessentials,” according to a new Lifeway Research survey.
The poll of 1,000 Protestant pastors, released this month, found that 44 percent of ministers say they find “people’s political views” challenging to navigate. Nearly half of pastors (48 percent) said “people’s strong opinions about nonessentials” are also a challenge….
There’s also apathy.
Three in 4 U.S. Protestant pastors (75%) say apathy or lack of commitment is a people dynamic they find challenging in their churches.
Poll: Majority of Christians shrug off ‘Way, Truth, and Life’
Christians believe other religions can lead to heaven!?!?
From the “POLL:” article:
A cornerstone of the Christian faith – and explicitly laid out in Scripture – is the belief that Jesus Christ is quite literally “the way, the truth, and the life,” and therefore He is the way to God in the afterlife. That naturally would mean being in God’s presence would depend on belief in Jesus yet according to a poll by Probe Ministries, 70% of Christians believe other religions can lead to heaven, too.
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY!
“Oh Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth, who hast set thy glory above the heavens! When I consider thy heavens, and the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than God, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! Or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time to war, and a time of peace. HEAR, ye children, the instruction of THE FATHER, and attend to know understanding. For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.” (Psalm 8:1, 3-6; 144:3-4; Eccl. 3:1-8; Proverbs 4:1-2)
The Scripture of Truth is like a beautiful pasture of plush green grass, and many sheep flocked to it to graze, but the taste was a little bitter. So, the sheep looked for shepherds who would sweeten the taste, and when the sheep grazed upon the flavored grass, the taste was not yet sweet enough. So, the shepherds sprayed the grass with a sweeter flavor, but the sheep were still not satisfied. Some other shepherds said to the sheep, “Try this other pasture, it is greener and sweeter.” So, the sheep followed those shepherds, and began to graze in the other pasture, and it was very sweet grass. The sheep grazed and grazed until they became very fat and lazy, and the shepherds were also made fat by the gratitude of the sheep.
Then the Head Shepherd returned for his flock and found his true pasture almost empty. So, he asked the shepherds there, “Where are my sheep? There were once many, now there are so few.” Then the shepherds of the true pasture said, “They have found a greener and sweeter pasture.” Then the Head Shepherd asked, “Were you so lazy to not call out unto them and bring any of them back?”
So, the Head Shepherd went to the other pasture and asked those shepherds, “What is this thing that you have done to my sheep, for I left them in my holy pasture?” Then, those other shepherds, trying to defend themselves, said, “It was the sheep! They wanted the sweeter grass, so we only did that which the sheep had asked.”
Then the Head Shepherd stood between the two pastures and shouted, “Woe to the idol shepherds that leave the flock! The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened. Woe to the shepherds of the flocks that do feed themselves! Should not those shepherds have feed the flocks?”
Then the fat and lazy shepherds asked, “How were we to know you would come by the old pasture first?” Then the Head Shepherd replied, “Did I not send you watchmen sounding the alarm to return to my holy pasture and have patience in my testimony?”
Then all those shepherds cried, “Yes, but we thought he was just a crazy old fool blowing on an old Jewish horn!”
Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
Most churches of today are doing a very poor job of teaching the entire bible to their flocks.
