I listen to Ray's tapes daily and one of his quotes aways comes to mind do the right thing .I was going through drive through at taco bell got myself an order and my sister an order to take home to her well I went through drive threw got the order and parked so I could eat my food .I looked in bag and didn't see my order and I know I payed for it cause it was on my receipt. So I went back through drive threw and told them I didn't get it so they gave me another one.after eating I went home dropped off my sister food and went home .later that night I called my sister and asking her if she ate her meal she them mentioned she had extra food in bag here the food I thought wasn't in bag was it was it was under all the napkins .so what comes to my mind I made a mistake and hear Ray do the right thing .so the next day I went back to taco bell went through drive threw was a little hesitant but did it and told cashier about what happened and offered to pay for extra meal they had given me they looked at me kinda strange but said don't worry about it .I drove off and thought I bet Gods smiling  seeing me do the right thing I must say it felt good .praise God for helping me to do the right thing 😍
I can also see what it means to let your light so shine...
God bless all,
Wendy

Paid up until 2030 :)
That, according to some, could take us all the way to the end...

We don't get a lot but it is enough to keep everything going. More would be better but this is exactly where God wants us at this time so I don't concern myself.

I usually save all year and advertise on YouTube at the end of the year, but we have to pay our host for his work on updating this forum as soon as it's done.

And I paid our host for hosting the BT site and this forum ahead until 2029 a few years ago, and I just renewed our domains (bible-truths.com and bibletruths.com) until 2030.

So as far as keeping everything up and running we're good.

Is anyone familiar with Orwell? 1984? What about Aldous Huxley Brave New World?


I've read 1984 twice and I've read Animal Farm. I started Brave New World, but have yet to finish it.
My wife just finished 1984 and she found parts of it somewhat prophetically disturbing in light of the way things are progressing in today's world.

Orwell and Huxley definitely had the ability to look at the unfortunate possibilities concerning the baser trends of human nature and science.

I’d seen the movie and my son read the book a couple years ago. So back in March last year when we first went on lockdown, I thought about 1984 again, and my son read the book again and then we watched the movie together.. recognizing early on what trajectory we were on. It’s been like watching parts of the book unfold piece by piece ever since.

It’s made me wonder, what exactly is a prophet.. what does it mean to hear from God.. is it always an audible voice? If not then what is it then. Is it thoughts. If Orwell was able to see the direction that society was going then it wasn’t by his own power. Nothing we are able to know is ever of our own power. If God caused him to accurately see into the future and warn of where we were going when the many were blind to that insight, is that what a prophet is?

The word prophet is most often associated with divine inspiration, such as the prophets of the Old Testament. But it also has the synonyms: seer · soothsayer · forecaster of the future · fortune teller · clairvoyant which are not so divinely associated.
While “all is of God”, I think they were as I stated previously: “Orwell and Huxley definitely had the ability to look at the unfortunate possibilities concerning the baser trends of human nature and science.” They were not 100% right on the money, but they certainly knew what they were writing about. And they were not alone. I think forecaster of POSSIBLE future would be more accurate. If you were able to call them prophets then consider President Eisenhower’s farewell address to the nation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWiIYW_fBfY. Like Orwell, he was not a prophet in the biblical sense, but he certainly was in a position to see the possible trends of where human nature could take us.
