Video taken through window captures twister's incredible power..Man is calm while reciting the LORD's Prayer and Rosary.
Khoury started praying as he captured the twister ripping through nearby structures.
After the tornado passed, he and his family went outside to survey the damage. He says, to their surprise, their home was not affected by the tornado, but the surrounding neighborhood was left in disarray. Roofs were ripped off of some homes and others were leveled.

"It was complete destruction. There are people in the streets crying," he said.

"We're so blessed that our street was untouched. You drive out of my street and all this destruction is there. A mile away it is all destroyed," he said.

Jesus Calms a Storm

Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed, he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, Master, we perish.

Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And he said unto them, Where is your faith?

And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
~ Luke 8: 22 - 25

Hiroshima Bomb amazing story..


The documentary opens on Hiroshima 1945.

8 Jesuit priests living just 8 blocks from the blast site miraculously survived the atomic blast. Everyone else within a radius of roughly 1.5 Kilometres was reportedly killed instantly, and those outside the range died of radiation within days.

However, the only physical harm to Fr. Shiffer was that he could feel a few pieces of glass in the back of his neck.

The priests have been examined over 200 times by scientists. Each time the priests repeated the same explanation for their survival, "We believe that we survived because we were living the message of Fatima.".

Going into a deep meditative state, via prayer, chanting or meditation, will provide this state of inner calm -- regardless of to whom one is praying to, or what one is thinking or saying. One absolutely does need to be a Christian to experience this effect.

More importantly, though, OP, people died and many Christians lost their homes, and everything that they had. I just spoke with one of my friends in the Midwest (who happens to be a Christian, by the way), and he said that the suffering of his extended family & his neighbors is profound, and that they're horrified by the vast scale of the devastation in their county. But, you're implying that "Jesus" basically picked and chose which Christians to save, and left the rest to suffer?

My friend and his family WERE praying (to the same God figure that you worship), and they're goodhearted, kind people, yet their neighborhood was not spared. You honestly believe that your God intentionally "saved" one street, but callously & monstrously allowed all of the other people who believed in him to suffer?

Is that really what you believe? And, how could you even worship an entity that would do such a thing -- who would haphazardly pick and chose who deserved to suffer?

Threads like this are so incredibly sick and such a slap in the face to those who have already been victimized enough by these storms. How on earth do you not see that? Where is your compassion?

It is threads like these that turn people away from Christianity, because, if you're so utterly blind and cold-hearted about the suffering of your fellow humans, how can one take anything that you say about a "loving God" seriously? If you honestly believe that you've been gifted with compassion and discernment...perhaps you should actually try to use it, instead of constantly using other people's pain to push your own personal religious agenda.

If a tornado rips through a town that is filled with religious people do the survivors calling on Jesus prove that he is real? Do all the dead people who called on Jesus prove that he is not real?

Did it ever occur to you that if God doesn't "LISTEN" to your pleas for help that MAYBE IT's YOUR TIME to go?

Seriously, you're so friggen closed minded it's ridiculous! But what more would I expect from the God haters here on GLP? If you had any shred of religious comprehension, you would know that God brings people to heaven to live in a perfect place forever! Those that have died and come back say they didn't want to come back. Why do you question and condemn God's decision to end people's time here on earth and bring them to a better place? Sheesh! If you're going to make an argument, at least make it sound at least a little intelligent.

That is not what I am saying....

And my prayers are for all people that have suffered such loss and hurt in all these tornadoes and natural disasters...

GOD is not a GOD of torture..He is a Just GOD full of Mercy..Why he chooses to save some and not other's is only
for GOD to know..Not us..Everything he does has purpose..

Read the Book of JOB...

A truly GODLY MAN who endured suffering, loss and sickness yet he never cursed or questioned GOD...

Through Suffering GRACE and Blessings come...

Seriously, prove -- using conclusive facts, data and evidence -- that the "God" figure that you worship actually stopped a tornado.

Also, please prove that neither Buddha nor Allah ever stopped a storm.

Scripture and videos are not evidence. Evidence would include raw meteorological or GPS data, or the like.

(For instance, I could not quote a paragraph from the "Harry Potter" novels and then offer it to you as "factual evidence" of anything involving events in the real world, nor would showing you some YouTube videos of one person's wholly random experience count as adequate, universal proof.)

Moreover, there are videos posted that show the utter devastation of that very same tornado, in other parts of the county. These videos would seem to "prove" that your "God" most certainly did not stop the storm, in any way, shape or form. The tornado was not stopped if it went on to destroy multiple structures and to harm multiple people's lives.

You've given no actual proof, whatsoever, so your statement that "you will never have enough proof" is not applicable...and it all just shows that you don't actually possess any concrete, incontrovertible proof of anything that you are saying, here.

And, you're entirely incorrect about the origins of "Allah", as well. Sadly, you don't seem to understand much about the origins of even your own system of beliefs.

Re: Video taken through window captures twister's incredible power..Man is calm while reciting the LORD's Prayer and Rosary.

Going into a deep meditative state, via prayer, chanting or meditation, will provide this state of inner calm -- regardless of to whom one is praying to, or what one is thinking or saying. One absolutely does need to be a Christian to experience this effect.

More importantly, though, OP, people died and many Christians lost their homes, and everything that they had. I just spoke with one of my friends in the Midwest (who happens to be a Christian, by the way), and he said that the suffering of his extended family & his neighbors is profound, and that they're horrified by the vast scale of the devastation in their county. But, you're implying that "Jesus" basically picked and chose which Christians to save, and left the rest to suffer?

My friend and his family WERE praying (to the same God figure that you worship), and they're goodhearted, kind people, yet their neighborhood was not spared. You honestly believe that your God intentionally "saved" one street, but callously & monstrously allowed all of the other people who believed in him to suffer?

Is that really what you believe? And, how could you even worship an entity that would do such a thing -- who would haphazardly pick and chose who deserved to suffer?

Threads like this are so incredibly sick and such a slap in the face to those who have already been victimized enough by these storms. How on earth do you not see that? Where is your compassion?

It is threads like these that turn people away from Christianity, because, if you're so utterly blind and cold-hearted about the suffering of your fellow humans, how can one take anything that you say about a "loving God" seriously? If you honestly believe that you've been gifted with compassion and discernment...perhaps you should actually try to use it, instead of constantly using other people's pain to push your own personal religious agenda.

:trolltard:


I most certainly am not a "troll". I've spent most of the day freaking out, watching the news and trying to get a hold of all of my friends & family in Wisconsin & Illinois, and you see fit to insult me by calling me a "tard"...and to insult them, by not taking their plight seriously?

Your comment just goes to show how compassionate the "Christians" on here are, doesn't it?

If you take issue to what I wrote, try to formulate an intelligent & thoughtful response, instead of mindlessly hurling insults through childish memes. Otherwise, you just sound hateful and uneducated -- though, again, given how thoughtless this entire thread is, that should be expected, I guess.
 Quoting: Wildthing


Listen here ....it is not my job to educate you. You answered my meme instead of the post that followed it. YOU need to find God, I don't need to find him for you. Oh and by the way TROLL TARD....YOU ARE USING PEOPLE'S PAIN TO PUSH YOUR AGENDA>>>DITTO!

:suckitup:
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47730593



"Suck it up princess"...? And, again, "tard"?

Again, how are such mindless insults in any way "Christian"? I would never use such extraordinarily juvenile phrases towards anyone, and I'm no longer a Christian, myself, so...which of us appears more spiritual?

Can you tell me where in the Bible Jesus stated that calling people childish names was an appropriate response? Did he travel around and call people who questioned him "tards"?

Seriously, you insult the reputation of actual, good and decent Christians with such comments. It's absolutely shameful, it really is. I have many friends & family members that are Christian, and I don't appreciate how incredibly awful you (and those like you) make all of them look. You should think very carefully about how your words reflect on you, on others, and on your "God".

In addition, in your earlier post, you referred to me as "closed-minded". Well, I've been clinically dead, before (twice!), and I've likely spent more years studying theology & philosophy (and traveling the world in search of answers) than you've even been alive, so I can assure you that it is not I that possesses a closed mind. Rather, it is you who appears hopelessly closed-minded, based upon all of your words and statements.

Simply put: Anyone who dismisses those who question them as a "tard", or tells anyone to "suck it", has not found "God", yet, themselves. Not even close.

HOWEVER:

Only a FOLLOWER of CHRIST will see the POWER of GOD in Jesus name during a Disaster of Biblical Porportions..


Buddah never stopped a Tornado

Allah never calmed the Storm


Pagan Deities never built a Throne to GOD....

 Quoting: christian


Prove it.

Seriously, prove -- using conclusive facts, data and evidence -- that the "God" figure that you worship actually stopped a tornado.

(Obviously, your "God" did not stop this storm, as proven by the statewide trail of destruction, death and chaos.)

Also, please prove that neither Buddha nor Allah ever stopped a storm.

(Though, you should probably be aware that "Allah" is simply another name for the Abrahamic God figure -- in other words, the same "God" that is mentioned in the Bible. And, Buddha was revered as a prophet and a sage, so his designation is different than what you are implying.

It's a bit frightening that you seem to know so little, isn't it?)

Now, I'll be waiting for your proof and evidence, so that I may analyze it further.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47730593



I just gave you Scripture for it

I also gave you those videos...

How much more proof do you want?

You see you people like you will never have enough proof....

Faith does not come from PROOF...


FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1, KJV)


Allah is not ABBA..Alla is a Moon Pagan Deity...
 Quoting: christian


Scripture and videos are not evidence. Evidence would include raw meteorological or GPS data, or the like.

(For instance, I could not quote a paragraph from the "Harry Potter" novels and then offer it to you as "factual evidence" of anything involving events in the real world, nor would showing you some YouTube videos of one person's wholly random experience count as adequate, universal proof.)

Go your way and seek the Proof you need for whatever you believe or don't...

I told you that FAITH in GOD is what bridges the gap between GOD and MAN... you don't want to believe it, that is your choice...So be it..

Peace...

Re: Video taken through window captures twister's incredible power..Man is calm while reciting the LORD's Prayer and Rosary.
Doubters...

You will not be able to turn a tornado...

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Luke 17:6
And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

--

See, you people who are 'scientists' do not grant that we live in a quantum flux... a matrix... a Schrodinger's box in which the cat is both living and dead depending on if you look or don't. Quantum physics grants that all of reality is interconnected... this is far beyond your mere Aristotelian science.

Faith is not magic. Faith is not luck. Faith is not circumstantial happenstance or chance. Faith is believing that God will do exactly what He says He will do.

You will note that in the verses above Jesus, Himself, Who is the Creator of Reality, says if you have faith you can say to a tree, move!, and it will be. How then more easy is it to tell a tornado to go away?



--

Matthew 8:13
And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

--

So, then, scientist, I challenge you. Bend reality with your faith. You have been provided at least 3 videos in which Christians have believed/prayed a tornado away.

--

John 14:13
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

John 15:16
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

John 16:23
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

John 16:24
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:26
At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

--

You will hear the prayers of the Christians asking in the Name of Jesus to have the tornado stopped or redirected.

So shall it be; so it was.

Re: Video taken through window captures twister's incredible power..Man is calm while reciting the LORD's Prayer and Rosary.
Since you have been entirely unable to provide any actual proof of your own claims & statements, OP, I will leave you with this...

Scientific proof that a Buddhist lifestyle heals and positively affects all aspects of one's life, body & being:

and:

[link to www.buddhistchannel.tv]



Also, since you mentioned Buddha in such an unfairly disparaging and uneducated manner, here is an article on the parallels between the teachings of Jesus and Buddhism:

[link to www.examiner.com]

There is a substantial amount of evidence that provides credence to the claim that Jesus was nursed back to health, at one point, in a Buddhist monastery...yet you speak ill of and insult the followers of Buddhism. How can you expect to educate and inform others when you, yourself, seem so very, very uneducated about many matters pertaining to religion and the Bible?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 50148086


I can confirm to you, from speaking to people who were actually there, that many Christians were, indeed, praying to God to spare their homes and to make the tornadoes stop.

However, the tornadoes did not stop, and many of these people (who were praying, as they hid from the storms) lost their homes, all of their possessions and/or sustained physical injuries to their bodies.

Thus, your statement ("so it was") is completely false. That is most definitely not how it was, at all. And, if you weren't actually there, or if you have not directly spoken to anyone that was, you have no right to say otherwise.

People are suffering, right now; spreading falsehoods does not help their plight or benefit anyone.

You obviously did not read the article.

Also, the fact that you continue to misspell "Buddha" over and over again shows that you have no interest in actually attaining knowledge or in trying to become educated on matters. You are choosing to remain ignorant on subjects pertaining to Christianity and systems of thought & belief; thus, there truly is no point in trying to direct you towards the truth. Without a true willingness to learn, one will always remain blind.

Your blindness is your choice.
