    Pandemic or Plandemic?

    My wife and I believe it is a social experiment to see how many of our freedoms can be taken away in the name of health and security before people revolt. Things will never be the same as they were 6 months ago. For example, many people will probably wear masks in the forceable future. Many restaurants and bars will close forever (e.g., Sweet Tomatoes). Dentistry has become a huge challenge. Church services are still severely restricted. I heard a report today that suicides, domestic violence, divorce, and depression are skyrocketing.

    Tax $$$s To SDA Chruch

    I think this probably has something to do with the 19th century fear over a "Sunday Law", which according to most SDA interpretations I've heard, the "Sunday Law" has to be (a) in the USA; and (b) must be enacted and enforced at the federal level of government. For a 19th century movement that grew out of the Second Great Awakening, such a parochial US-centric focus may have made sense. The fact that many SDAs today still cling to this interpretation is a testimony to the inertia of religious tradition. We see this is all religious movements where a number of practices and traditions continue long after they have ceased to have any usefulness or relevance.

    Tax $$$s To SDA Chruch

    American Adventists seem much more reluctant to take money from the government than Adventists in other countries. When God provides, I see no reason the church should not use what God has provided. Nehemiah rebuilt Jerusalem with funds from the pagan king Artaxerxes. About that, Ellen White wrote, "The donors may have no faith in Christ, no aquaintance with His word; but their gifts are not on this account to be refused." (PK, p634) In Mexico, the government owns all the churches. So after we build a church, we give it to the government. This is done so that it becomes government property and the government protects it. A church I built was given to the government when it only had a concrete floor. After the government became the legal owner, it shipped in a truckload of ceramic tile and paid the church members to install it. I can only imagine the reaction of many American Adventists if such a thing was practiced in the US. Yet God continues to use that church, and many others in Mexico, to carry His end-time message.

    5 Powerful Facts To Know About The Hoover Dam On July 7, 1930, construction of the Hoover Dam began outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. It was the largest dam of its time, as well as one of the largest man-made structures in the world. Here are five powerful facts you probably didn't know about the Hoover Dam... It Once Was The Earth’s Tallest Dam Rising 726.4 feet, Hoover Dam was the world’s tallest dam when it was built in the 1930s. These days, it’s the second-tallest dam in the U.S., having been surpassed by the 770-foot-high Oroville Dam in Northern California in 1968. The globe’s tallest dam is the 1,001-foot-high Jinping-I Dam in Liangshan, Sichuan, China, which became operational in 2013. It Contains Enough Concrete To Wrap Around The Earth Imagine a four-foot-wide sidewalk wrapped completely around the Earth at the equator. That’s a lot of concrete! That’s how much concrete it took to build the Hoover Dam. It’s amazing when you think about it. The dam is 726 feet tall and 1,244 feet long. That’s almost a quarter of a mile. At its base, the dam is a whopping 660 feet thick. That’s longer than two football fields stretched end-to-end! Additionally, the dam required about five million barrels of cement, nearly equaling the total quantity of cement utilized by the The Bureau of Reclamation in its previous 27 years of existence. Building Hoover Dam Created An Entire City Speaking of places named Boulder, you may not know that Nevada’s Boulder City didn’t exist before the Hoover Dam project. In fact, the city was built in 1930 solely to house the 5,000 workers employed to build the dam. Boulder City was constructed on federal land and had no local mayor or other elected officials. Oddly enough, the entire city was managed by an employee of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This person had the power to institute rules as he saw fit. Some of Boulder City’s early statutes even banned gambling and the consumption of alcohol. It wasn’t until 1960, thirty years after the city’s initial construction, that the federal government surrendered control, and Boulder City was officially incorporated. As Many As 138 Workers Died During Construction Hoover Dam was built between 1931 and 1936, and those five years were not without disaster. Reports from the construction site list 96 deaths due to accidents. In addition, 42 workers were reported to have died from illnesses while the dam was being built. However, today some historians believe that it was exposure to carbon monoxide in construction tunnels resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning, which actually caused these additional deaths. The Nazis Plotted To Blow Up Hoover Dam During WWII In November 1939, U.S. officials learned of a Nazi plan to blow up Hoover Dam. Destroying Hoover Dam would have had the disastrous effect of cutting off critical electrical power to southern California’s airplane manufacturing industry. To combat further attempts on the dam, U.S. authorities imposed restrictions on boats allowed into Black Canyon and employees who worked at the dam. Following the December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and America’s entry into World War II, Hoover Dam was closed to all visitors until the war ended in 1945.

    Days of Praise

    July 7, 2020 The Truth “And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:4) This is the last of 11 occurrences of “the truth” in Paul’s two letters to Timothy. He was not writing about the importance of being truthful in general but about a specific body of factual information concerning Jesus Christ and its vital importance. Thus, “the truth” was a very important theme in both of Paul’s letters to this young pastor—and, by implication, to all God-called pastors. Paul first speaks of “the knowledge of the truth” required for salvation (1 Timothy 2:4), then of his own teaching as “the truth in Christ” (1 Timothy 2:7), then of “the church of the living God” as “the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Timothy 3:15), and of Christians as those who “believe and know the truth” (1 Timothy 4:3). He stresses the importance of studying the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15), and also that true repentance requires “the acknowledging of the truth” (2 Timothy 2:25). Paul also warns of false and covetous teachers who are “destitute of the truth” (1 Timothy 6:5) and who therefore “concerning the truth have erred” (2 Timothy 2:18). There will even be false prophets who “resist the truth” and are “reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Timothy 3:8). As a result of the teachings of these false teachers, there will be many so-called seekers of truth who are “ever learning” yet who seem “never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7). The reason they never find the truth is because they “turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:4). The fact is that Jesus said: “I am…the truth” and also that “thy word is truth” (John 14:6; 17:17). For any who would say with Pilate “What is truth?” (John 18:38), there is the definitive answer!
