TOO TOO BAD that we lost the casino vote, Christians. Now, will we be consistent and stay away from them? or take a trip to Las Vegas, as Christians have done. I imagine a place with sexy women, scantily clad, glitz and glamour, and Christians thinking it's just like Disney World or a cruise ship --permissable to spend money there, go to shows and restaurants there --even if they don't gamble.

I'd like to see the places fail financially because WE DON'T GO! They will be beckoning and advertising to the hilt and I can hear young Christians now --saying that it would be legalistic --like never entering theaters --to have a conviction against attending the new "respectable" casino.

Imagine the new indebtedness of gamblers, the new addicts, the prostitution available "under the table" so to speak, the low cost drinks to entice attendance, the temptation to alcoholics to add gambling to their troubles? on top of LOTTO.

The lure of easy money for state gov't is foolishness --when you consider all the new poor the state will have to support when people gamble everything away to local Las Vegas.

"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible

Yes, once again I went to the polls only to learn a few hours later that I was in the minority on every single issue. Thankfully, we serve a different King.

Yes, we do.

Have you heard the Family Radio guy announcing the Rapture on May 21, 2011?

Good grief! And then there's this movie, 2012 --based on both Mayan prediction of the end of the calendar/earth--and didn't Nostradamus (sp?) say the same thing about 2012?

I don't believe it, since Christ said no man will know the day or the hour of His return --though Family radio guy is right that we can recognize the "times," when Christ might return.

Whatever, perhaps the thought of an one's imminent demise or a last chance for Heaven will incline some to ponder the fate of their souls--for good effect.
