Meanwhile...Thomas Road Baptist (Falwell) draws thousands to Biblical Men's festival

Lynchburg conference draws thousands despite corona concerns

https://www.newsadvance.com/news/local/lynchburg-conference-draws-thousands-despite-corona-concerns/article_60f93675-b627-5619-b561-429381ed68c9.html

Thousands gathered for the annual Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend on Saturday morning, and the parking lot was teeming with people cooking meat, manning booths and playing a few spirited games of cornhole.

The sold-out conference, hosting speakers like Tim Tebow and Marcus Luttrell, was created to “help man take back their Biblical manhood.” With workshops centered around topics like self-defense, hunting, motorcycles and faith, the event sold more than 5,000 tickets.

To appease some concerns, Ignite offered a livestream of plenary sessions to ticket holders, and issued a statement on its website the organization is implementing recommendations from the Virginia Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Robert Payton, of Stafford, said he was looking forward to “the words, some nuggets from God.”

“I had already registered,” Payton said. “And I’m not going to let the enemy keep me in the house in fear.”

7. Yeah I looked them up a few days ago. Business as usual. Spring Break is next week

so they don't have to make that decision yet. They do so much business on line the actual campus doesn't really matter much.

Their basketball team made the tournament but....

And Jr. was on Fox just a few days ago spewing crazy conspiracy theories

from their submissive wives when they go back to their homes so they don't infect them.

6. I remember Exodus, the Israelites stayed at home

“Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning. For the LORD will pass through the land to strike down the Egyptians. But when he sees the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe, the LORD will pass over your home. He will not permit his death angel to enter your house and strike you down.”

Exodus 12:22-23

15. Satan.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/1016249468

To close the churches where people go for comfort and spiritual strength – as an act of fighting against this biological scourge – seems like a surrender to Satan.

But ah! We have one quiver in our arsenal that Satan cannot thwart. It is the power of prayer!


If the coronavirus is part of Satan’s arsenal of evil, then we should all be confident that God will prevail in this battle. The Christian belief is that Satan has already been defeated. That Jesus by dying on the cross vanquished this peddler of pain, this maestro of misery. Those who believe need not fear death or even sickness. We need only put our hope in the One who is ultimately in charge.

25. If they don't care about putting themselves at risk, that's one thing. But even if they don't care

about their own safety that won't stop them from infecting other people like you and me. It's shameful.

28. The label...

The label, Liberty University is like more than one oxymoron in a taco shell. Well, the whole place is filled with oxy-morans.

However, you do get a degree and at least Evangelicals will take it seriously and not laugh at you and pass you up. You get to join the Conservative Propaganda Brayn Trust.
