What has your prayer experience been like with most churches?
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Growing up, I’d often been warned against churches that had preachers yelling and screaming from the pulpit, and then praying loudly, still yelling, going on and on. I was told it was not biblical. Then as I got older, I found different churches did it different ways. I felt that the screamers – well, it was just for show for the audience. I doubted they prayed this way while in private.
Prayer is very personal, and folks pray differently and I think a lot of it has to do what they were exposed to while they were growing up.
Do you often pray publicly? If so, how do you do it? Are you a long-winded prayer, or is your prayer finished quickly?
This looks like an interesting site. No, I have not read the book but, since I’ve been fascinated with Nephilim for a long time, I might read this sometime. The author of this book commented on one of my Nephilim blog posts. I’m not sure when this book will be officially released.
Why were humans vegetarians before the flood?
9 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. 3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
After Noah and his family exited the ark, the Lord told him that the beasts of the earth would fear him and that they were given into his hands as food. I’m assuming, at this point, the birds and animals would run away when approached by humans and we’d need to start hunting then down to eat as food. I’m also assuming, before the flood, animals would willingly come up to humans much like domesticated pets? What do you think?
My main question is, why did the Lord let us eat meat AFTER the flood? I’m assuming before the flood, everyone ate a vegetarian diet? Was it possible that the earth changed after the flood and it’d be difficult for man to receive all of his nourishment from plants?
Why do you think humans were vegetarians before the flood?
All, I’m being interviewed LIVE today at 2PM EST. If you’re not able to make it, or if you see this blog post afterwards, then you may listen to the recorded interview.
Thanks in advance for listening and have a blessed weekend!
