So, is Mattel saying Barbie's a gold digger now and she ain't messin' with no broke Ken? Question: If barbies are for little girls, why do they need to know about sugar daddies?

The artist has a Web site with over 300 mods of Barbie, Skipper and even a few Kens.
Amazing...These Barbies actually looks like a real person. What do you think?

"God channels this through me at night... I can't sleep because I'm so supercharged," the 50-year-old "Thriller" singer told his director, Kenny Ortega.
Ortega asked: "Can't God take a vacation?"
"You don't understand -- if I'm not there to receive these ideas, God might give them to Prince," Jackson answered, referring to the rival pop star.Question: What does it mean to channel God?
"I don't see how you can be president without relying on the Almighty". Now when I was 21, I wouldn't have told you that, but at age 63, I can tell you that one of the most amazing surprises of the presidency was the fact that people's prayers affected me... I can't prove it to you... But I can tell you some days were great, some days not so great. But every day was joyous."
I would like to take this time to thank all prayer warriors for there many years of praying daily for formal President Bush....Now, I am asking if it's any way possible if we could do the same for President Obama.

"You gotta watch what u say. Because there are a lot of weak people in the world. They are susceptible to anything so anything you say or do some people actually do listen," Evans said. "So make sure its nothing bad. Its okay to be deep, but not murder deep...(Some people are upset because she linked the music industry and celebrities to devil worshipers.) "Some of your favorite people pretend to worship God but they only do that to save face. Or seem innocent. Satan was head of music in heaven. He uses influential people ... to help influence the world."
It's understood in orthodox christian theology that one characteristic of the end-times is DECEPTION! Yeah, you can you tube stars in the music industry and discover all kinds of conspiracies and secret agendas.... But the reality is, demonic influence are real and they go far beyond the scope of the music industry...Our major media outlets, corporations, news broadcasting, government and CHRISTIAN MUSIC and CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS all have been demonically influenced for decades! I believe there's a lot of evil going on behind the scenes that its scary! The very things we think of as wholesome and innocent are actually the things that will FOOL THE VERY ELECT....I believe Tiffany has every right to express her feelings and share her thoughts....But again I wondering why there's so much anger aim at Tiffany?....Could she be onto something? Now, I've read a couple of comments about a gun shot being heard at the end of the song....That's DARK!

I checked out the website for the Department of Agriculture's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the agency that supplies food stamps. The primary requirement is that the family or individual's income should be 130 percent or less of the federal poverty guidelines, which is why the grad student was eligible...You have to apply for food stamps on a state level, and a handful of states even offer online applications—handy!
Do you know anyone on food stamps?
Does it surprise you to read about a grad student using the program?
Would you apply for food stamps?
What's wrong with seeking help if needed?

Of course what it really mean is that you don’t believe in Halloween but want to celebrate it anyway...I hear the word alternative being used but an alternative of kids dressing up and getting candy by having kids dress up and come to your church or to the mall for candy…That's not and “alternative.”Who are we fooling? What kind of message are we sending?
It's plain and simple...If you don’t like Halloween,just don’t celebrate it... We Christian have a legitimate argument that could be made against it....By giving it a new name doesn’t change a thing and the only one we're fooling is ourselves...And what about does “no scary costumes, God honoring costumes and “bible characters only”? I think that's just silly! A costume is a costume....In other words we are telling people they can come to our party, fest or whatever – if they look like a character out of the Bible...I understand the reason why Christian don't have “Halloween” parties in the house of God but if you think Halloween is evil don’t rename it, just skip it... But if you’re going to have a party, be the place to be... Knock it out of the park... Have the most fun, the best candy, the biggest games…make church the place to be on Halloween...Use it as an opportunity, not a stumbling block...As a child growing up, Halloween night was not that bigger deal for us country folks....Now I was raised in a Christian family that never questioned tradition we did what every one else did...But as I got older, I started seeing that a lot of things Christians participated in like Harvest Fest, Harvest Party are Fall carnival don't line up with God word either.
- Do you engage in any Halloween-related activities?
- What are your reasons for participating or passing?
- What about Fall Carnival?
- Harvest Fest?

Among the authors whose books the pastor plans to burn are well known ministers like Rick Warren and Billy Graham because he says they have occasionally used Bibles other than the King James Version, which is the sole biblical source he considers infallible.
The church’s Web site, also says members will burn “Satan’s music such as country, rap, rock, pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel, contemporary Christian, jazz, soul (and) oldies.
They also have a list of popular books they believe to be Satanic an written by heretics like Billy Graham, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, John McArthur, James Dobson, Charles Swindoll, John Piper, Chuck Colson, Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart, Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham, Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn, Joyce Myers, Brian McLaren, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa, The Pope, Rob Bell, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning (and) William Young... I think this is ridiculous... There are other ways to protest if you don't like a particular translation(like don't buy it). I like many of the authors he has listed.

She said in her new book, Scared Silent, she talk about her 12-year marriage to John...How things started out well, but John became emotionally and physically abusive after he returned from an Army tour during the Gulf War....She said she was convinced that his plan was to kill her so that he could regain custody of the children he lost in 2001 and to get compensation for them as crime victims.
"I was recalling every frightening comment John had ever made to me. He once said, 'When a man hits a woman, it means that he has lost all respect for her. It would be easy for him to kill her after that.' But I did not foresee, not even in my wildest nightmare, that John would ever kill people who had nothing to do with me or our troubled marriage."
Mildred Muhammad hopes that her book will help other victims of domestic violence get the help they need.... Malvo is serving a life sentence, and Muhammad is scheduled to be executed November 10 of this year.

"We who practice the Christian tradition understand [Jesus] as our vehicle to the divine. But for us to assume that God could not act in other ways is, I think, to put God in an awfully small box."
John 10:1, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
In my youth growing up I still remember how my Sunday School teacher taught the above verse to us: Heaven is God's home. And every home got a door. The Door to God's home got a name. His name is Jesus--and guess what key fits that door? Faith! Without Faith in the door you can't get the key to work in the door...So my question to other Christians would you sit under a teacher who did not believe Christ to be the only way to the Father?
- Some try to live a good life.
- Some open up a prayer book for 5 minutes every week and read what's on the page.
- Some go to an organizational meeting once a week thinking/hoping it commends them to God.
- Some try to help old ladies across the street every chance they get.
- Some try to practice "senseless acts of beauty and random acts of kindness" (that silly slogan people put on bumper stickers).
- Some go along with whatever their parents' taught them. "My mom and dad raised me that way." (that don't mean it's right)
- Some go along with whatever the school system taught them--"A monkey is my uncle? Oh, okay. I believe that. I reject God. Because a monkey is my uncle.

On the other hand, American Girl says the dolls "offer valuable lessons about life." Gwen could be sending children a valuable message about reaching out to those less fortunate and being tolerant of people of all social standings.
Questions: What do you think of Gwen? Is she doing more help or harm?

Also last January, an Oregon elementary school was placed on lock down when an 11-year-old former student was cited for allegedly pointing a toy gun toward students and staff...Now don't be fooled by the term "BB gun." They're not as cute as they were in the classic film "A Christmas Story." BB guns these days don't resemble anything from back in the day.... In fact, they look more like real guns than ever.... And they're way more dangerous than they used to be....I remember my brothers having BB guns but they were the kind you pump...Some of my brothers play mates had pellet guns which were more dangerous. Question: Would you consider buying A kid a toy gun?

"Why does everyone think that you will be possessed by demonic spirits if you do yoga? As a teacher of Christian Yoga at church, our class has found a closer relationship with Jesus by using the many physical benefits that yoga offers. You do not have to be a Hindu to honor the body that God has given us. Your faith must be weak to think that practicing yoga would influence you to any eastern mysticism"Is Yoga simply a relationship with a god? I stumbled across that quote above and this definition...So after reading that quote and definition I can't see why a Christian would/should or want to practice Yoga.... Is it not in a sense dabbling in the occult under the pretense of healthy living? If so isn't that a form of deception?....The word yoga comes from the biblical word, yoke which in turn originated from the root word in Sanskrit jugit.... Both mean joining together or to unite.... Yoga is the union of an individual consciousness with infinite consciousness... A yogi is a person who leans completely on the Supreme Consciousness, God, until they have merged their individual self with the Infinite Self....Basically, Yoga is about opening up your spirit through your body so that you can be ‘yoked’ to a higher power – spirit.... These spirits, called ‘god’ are not the true and living God, but one of the ‘many spirits’ that have gone out into the world, seeking a house (man/woman) to dwell in...For that person who said he didn’t see the big deal in it because he's a “Christian Yoga Teacher at his church”How can you practice being in tune with your own spirit, and say that as a christian you are aligning yourself with the spirit of Christ?As a Christian there can be only one in control, and that's Christ...And guess what! He won’t share his space with the enemy...We need to study the word of God more and I wonder who the pastor of this church is? His members are in jeapordy.
