How the Dinosaurs were wiped out.

Many have wondered how the dinosaurs were killed and became extinct. There are many different theories. But is there any physical evidence of their demise.

Well let’s consider the physical evidence.

The moon is moving away from the earth at 3.8cm every year. Currently the moon sits at 384,000 km away.

Do the math and you will clearly see that 85 million years ago the moon was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 452 cm or 4.5 meters from the earth’s surface.

This would explain the death of the dinosaurs; the tallest ones, anyway. The rest were squashed when the tall one fell on them.

Bless the little children.

While reading the dBASE news group, I came across some really funny things and jokes about kids. This will surely light up your day.

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.
The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.
The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'.
The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?'
The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing.. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.'
The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.'
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to 'honour' thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, 'Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?'
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, 'Thou shall not kill.'

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, 'Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?'
Her mother replied, 'Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.'
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, 'Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?'

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.
'Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a doctor.'
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, 'And there's the teacher, she's dead.'

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, 'Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.'
'Yes,' the class said.
'Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?'
A little fellow shouted, 'Cause your feet ain't empty.'

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
'Take only ONE . God is watching.'
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies....
A child had written a note, 'Take all you want. God is watching the apples.'

Zuma - You're welcome in our Church, but not in our Pulpit

On Sunday, Jacob Zuma addressed the Rehma congregation from the Puplit of the Rehma Church. Afterword Ray McCauley prayed for him.

What I find most disturbing, is not the fact that Zuma attended church, for I myself pray for him that he might be saved and find a bible believing church to attend, but that McCauley gave him opportunity to address the congregation from the pulpit.

Rhema, which claims to be a Bible church, seems, in this case, not to follow the Bible. Where it clearly teaches that there is separation of state. If you want to use your church as apolitical platform, don't call yourself a Bible church.

If Zuma came to our church, I would treat him just the same as I would treat anybody. They are a sinner in need of salvation, and if they are saved through faith by Jesus Christ, then they are still sinners, saved by grace. This goes for the Pope, Zuma, Obama, or the man in the street. God is no respector of persons. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The second thing is, if I would give Zuma opportunity to speak from our pulpit, as though he is an authority in our church, I would make sure of a few things.
Is he Saved?
Is he Leading a Christian Life?
What Doctrine does he hold too?
Are they the same as we hold in our church?
Does he believe the Bible?
What is his Biblical Interpretation like?
Has he proven himself a spritual leader, a lover of God and Jesus, and the Gospel?
Does he have humility?

The list can goes on.

Jacob Zuma has demonstrated that he is none of these, and it would seem that he is just trying to garner political support. I believe that if Christ was present, he would have delt with Ray McCauley as he delt with the Pharisees and Sadducees in His time.

When McCauley, prayed for Zuma, did he actually pray for his salvation? I don;t see that mentioned anywhere. Isn't our mission as a church to present the Gospel to all, not a platform for political showmanship. Yes, we must pray for our Government and its leaders, but surely McCauley could have mentioned that himself. He shouldn't need Zuma to do it.

This act just confirms my belief that Ray McCauley is not Biblical in his belief. Ray MCCauley's Love for money and power at the expense of biblical doctrine is testimony to his so called Christianity. But then again, who am I to Judge, God alone knows.

I pray for Zuma, that he gets saved. I pray for Ray McCauley, that he too repents and if he is not saved, that he asks Jesus to save him. I pray that his eyes might be open and that he sees the truth in the Bible.

Perhaps McCauley should read 1Timothy, and Titus 1.

Ray McCauley, since you invite anybody to your pulpit, irrespective of their faith or belief, I would like the opportunity to address your church as well.

2Ti 4:1-2
(1) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
(2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
