His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; Rev 1:14
.He drank the boy’s blood
.More murder convictions thrown out
.More on 911 [conspiracy?]
.118 firefighters- lying?
.Charlie rose- to Sanders ‘I’ll just put the nice words in your mouth’
.Clinton qualified?
.The Stone that heard the words
. ‘Thru my death- have peace’
Will you stay- till the end?
PAST POSTS [verses below]
NOTE- There are many ‘conspiracies’ about 911- and many videos you can watch on the subject.
Actually- I don’t consider myself a ‘truther’.
But I do talk about it on my video- and added actual footage of the collapse of tower 7.
We know tower 7 was on fire- the question is could a structure fire alone cause a collapse like this?
Tower 7 was not hit by a plane on 911.

I added a few videos below- besides mine. I don’t agree with all the stuff- but figured I’d add them because I talked about it on the post. [collapse of tower 7]
.Altar better than gift
.Don’t flatter me
.Should we pay taxes?
.Why so mad Jesus?
.What is truth?
.Married in heaven?
.I have one question- FOR YOU!

. Many were surprised at how willingly Socrates faced his demise- and this willingness had a great impact on those who witnessed it.

Socrates never wrote anything- but most of what we do know about him comes from the writing of others- most notably from Plato’s Dialogues.
Plato wrote down what Socrates taught- In his writings we see Socrates engaging in this method with various people- thus the name of Plato’s works- Dialogues.

There is a debate about how much of what was written about him was actually true- Plato did add his own ideas into these debates- and the controversy about this is so strong that we actually have a name for it- the ‘Socratic Problem’.
During the time of the disillusionment of the Athenians- there were a group of philosophers known as the Sophists.

The word comes from Sophia- meaning wisdom.

Philosophy itself means The Love of Wisdom.
In our day the words Sophomore- Sophistry and Sophisticated are derived from this root word.

The Sophists were the original Pragmatists.

Pragmatism is a form of belief that says ‘do what works- regardless of the ethical implications’.
We will get to Pragmatism at the end of this whole series on Philosophy.

But for now- we see the division between what Socrates taught- and the Sophists.

Socrates did indeed teach a form of Ethics- which contrasted with the Sophists.
He said that the pursuit of virtue was better than the pursuit of wealth- much like the words of Jesus ‘what does it profit a man if he gain the world- and lose his soul’.

His most famous saying is ‘The unexamined life is not worth living’.

Luke 12:35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
Luke 12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
Joshua 24:26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.
Joshua 24:27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.
And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. Ex. 25:16
Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Matt. 11:11
Note- Please do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on. I deal with issues at times that it would be beneficial for some of you to download and save the file from the Word Press link. This creates a permanent record. The on-line videos are only good if sites are not hacked- which has happened in the past. Thanks- John.#
