15th Anniversary Of The Bombing

Don't you remember how stunned you were when you saw the images?
And one thing I can't find on the Internet, but I swore I read, was that during one of the memorial services a baby began to cry in the audience. The pastor, instead of ignoring the crying child, simple said, "That's OK. It sounds like the voice of angel right now."

I normally make stupid ass comments but in this case I had a brother-in law killed in that bombing so I will just shut up.

Well, good for you. You don't have to be a scapegrace continually.

I lived in OKC at that time and remember the sound and the moment...

I remember going there a couple of years later. The building was down, but the fence was still there with all of the gifts. You still felt the sadness in the area.

Went a few years ago and went through the memorial. If you have never been, you should definitely plan to go sometime.

Isn't it comforting to know that Timothy Mcveigh is enjoying glory in heaven because when he was a teenager he was "saved" in his church and they believe "once saved always saved". Awesomely logical.......Not!

Tim listened to the physco babble and acted upon it. Words matter!

Everything I needed to know about Christianity I learned on 4/19.

Horribly simplistic criticism of Christianity, folks. Even if "once saved, always saved" is true, just because you SAY you are saved and/or you are on the rolls of a church as "saved", doesn't make it so. True, we believe salvation is an internal reality that is between you and God. However, mainstream Christianity has always maintained that a good indicator of the REALITY of a person's salvation is their outward behavior, or "works". Good works can't "save" you, but the lack of them in a person's life, and especially the presence of evil deeds and works, illustrates that the inward reality is NOT there.

If you're going to critcize Christian beliefs, please try to dig a little deeper than the fraction of an inch illustrated above. You'll find out that your criticisms are not even valid.

11:16 What you are admitting to, is that no one can really know for sure that they are saved. So, the "once saved always saved" doctrine is false. Mcveigh and probably some family and friends thought at one time he was saved. So, you are saying he became unsaved by his works. See how wonderfully logical this is.

As I once heard ...
"We will probably be surprised by who we see in heaven and who we do not"
....only God knows the heart of an individual....
I am glad I have a God that forgives me and saved me.
How could I possibly judge someone else's salvation. He does that.

So many little ones lost in this horrible act.

12:45 When you said "..saved me.", are you guaranteed heaven?

A genuine American terrorist. And we seem to be encouraging current idiots like him now to perpetrate more of these acts. Rush Limpballs and Beck and Hannity and Palin seem to be endorsing extreme action against our government.

11:38 there is no logic. That's why I choose to stay away from that crazy junk. YOWZA

M and m. Yes. I can not be taken from His hand. It's by grace. I hope you won't be upset if I don't argue doctrine with you. Or if I don't spout verses to explain. I'm simple. I'm loved and forgiven and assured. And even though I fail daily I try again to love like He does.

10:42, Tim saw what Slick Willy and Janet Reno did to innocent people in Reno and acted on it. Words had nothing to do with it despite what Clinton says.

1:52 Just trying to gain some understanding here. Timothy Mcveigh, at one time, felt the same way you do now. Guaranteed heaven and could "not be taken from His hand." He went out and killed a whole bunch of people. Some say he must have never been really saved, or else he wouldn't have done that. Some say he was still saved and they wanted him to get life in prison without parole, so he'd have to suffer some here before he went to heaven. What if you went out and killed a bunch of innocent people like him, would you still be saved?

1:24 To link Paline, Beck and Hannity with a murderer is simply ridiculous. They have as much right to their beliefs as you do, and they do NOT advocate the murder of innocents. You are an idiot.

As for the "saved" question...I hate that term. It means nothing except to the Baptists who use it. IF there is a heaven, I can promise you that there will be many folks there who never called themselves "saved" and many who thought they were, won't be present. You are a sorely mislead and mistaken bunch of sheep who have been totally brainwashed. God values all different religions and faiths...not just yours, you bunch of arrogant hypocrits.

It seems those who claim not to believe in God are usually the first to start a heated discussion on the topic on this blog. I guess God explained this topic well when he said "Ye shall know them by their fruits." No, you are not saved by your works. But, your works, according to God, will show if you are genuinely a believer.

so why did you not put up my comment about what I heard on the radio the morning this happened? There was nothing that needed censorship, so what gives? I'm beginning to think you are not receiving comments that are left on here. I've had several now show up and I see many others make the same comments about theirs not showing up.
What's going on?

fix = "several not show up"
