Quote of the Day 8-5-15 (Clay Fulks)

“Having fundamentalists in a nation is like having congenital imbeciles in a family–it’s a calamity. Allow their mountebank, swindling leaders enough control over society and though religious faith would flourish fantastically, society would revert to the sheep-and-goat stage of culture . . . Wherefore it is perfectly irrelevant whether your fundamentalist is honest or utterly hypocritical in his religious beliefs . . . It just doesn’t matter. The question of his intellectual integrity will have to wait until he grows an intellect. In the meantime, however, what the forces of reaction are doing with him constitutes a continuing calamity.”

–Clay Fulks, Christianity, A Continuing Calamity

(This was one of the Haldeman-Julius “little blue books,” which were very cheaply produced pamphlets which sold for a nickel, and which in toto–there were about 2,000 of them–sold over 100 million copies, mostly in the 1920s and 1930s. Christianity, a Continuing Calamity was published in the 1920s and is, unfortunately, as relevant today as when it appeared.)

    Hi!

    Blessings to you in the mighty name of our Dear Lord Jesus Christ.

    Please forgive me, for I know this is the most inappropriate means of connecting with you…but this is the avenue I could find.

    First of all, I want thank God for your life and the awesome work He is doing through you on this platform!

    To Him alone be all the GLORY!

    My name is Tim and I am the founder of the newly unveiled Christian Social Media/Community known as: Rhemalog

    If I may crave your indulgence, I will quickly like to intimate you on our purpose, goals and objectives.

    The name Rhemalog is a compound word, coined from both “Rhema” and “Log”.
    It means, putting into writing(Log), your encounters in the Word of God(Rhema).
    That is, sharing with the beloved, the things that God has shown unto you in His Word.

    Rhemalog was established by the leading of the Holy Spirit, as a platform to enrich and impact the body of Christ all over the World!

    You will agree with me that there is a lot of degradation going on.
    Abuse, spiritual contaminations, mental pollutions and attacks on our faith.

    All you need is to refresh your social-media pages long enough…then boom!
    There you have it, in your face!
    But.
    Wouldnt it be awesome to have a sanctified environment?

    A platform built solely for the Children of God.
    Devoid of negativity around us, but filled with inspirations, encouragements and above all, the WORD OF GOD!

    A breath of fresh air. Family friendly, conducive, loving and embracing.

    Your own family of fellow brethren, encouraging, building, cheering on and strengthening each other on a daily basis!

    This is our driving force.
    The clarion call that moved us to put Rhemalog in place.

    And this is our call to you: Would you like to join us?

    As one of the (Christian) thinkers and opinion-makers out there, logically, it is a no-brainer that we need you, especially since our main goal is to ensure that the people are well fed.

    We need your insightful thoughts. Inspirational ideas. Well written pieces. We need YOU!

    We need you, not only as a member, but also as an A-List contributor.

    And we already have all the tools required.

    – Personal Blogging feature
    – Video sharing
    – Community pages (think facebook pages)
    – Timelines and profiles
    – Pictures, etc

    Together, we can build one of the most vibrant and impact-full communities out there.

    Should you decide to join us now:

    – Your personal blog and info will be shared on our social media pages (with over 67,000 members)

    – As an early adopter, you will be a part of a huge and influential community at its infant stage.

    – Your community page will be featured, if you create one. Meaning, it will come up first in searches and views (with its own cute ribbon)

    – You can host all your youtube and vimeo videos, thereby increasing your viewer-ship and enhancing your reach.

    Well, “gold and silver” we have not.
    But can you help us be a blessing to the children of God out there?

    The address of the website is:

    rhemalog dot com (No need to create an unsolicited backlink!)

    It will be a huge honour and we will be waiting for you.

    The first step is to be registered. Duration of your submissions will be totally up to you. To keep up though, we would suggest you begin by sharing the links to your blog posts, later on, you can start doing reblogs or creating unique postings using our blog feature.

    However, in-between, we would love your quips, wits, quotes and words of wisdom, posted on your homepage timeline. We consider these to be quick tonic for the soul…snacks for those in hurried need of inspiration and motivations.

    Whichever option you choose, we cannot wait to have a drink from the fountain of your God-given wisdom.

    Thanks and may God continually keep His face shining on you.

    Yours in Christ,

    Tim (Rhemalog Community)

      p.s., also, on the SeeSharpPress.com website, there was a great list of war quotations…is there any way to access the site for them and the other great articles that were posted? Thanks for any reply.

      • Thanks for the kind comments. I’m glad you like the quotes.

        The address is still http://www.seesharppress.com and you can grab the quotes by clicking at the beginning, then holding down the shift key and clicking at their end, then right clicking on the selected text for the pop up menu, and then left clicking on “copy,” which will send the selected text to your clipboard.

        Thanks for your reply. Hmmm, I asked 2 other friends if they could access your site using Firefox & IE & Google Chrome browsers plus tried accessing on our phones and none of us have been able to pull up your site, seesharppress.com (fyi, I did use all lower case letters) — you may want to check with your hosting provider. (I also cleared my cache, but to no avail in accessing the site) Love your site and have turned others onto it. Thanks for sharing yourself & all the work you’ve done on it 【ツ】~ Bev in Marietta, Ga

        * Here is what your domain name goes to: http://seesharppress.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

      • Hmmmmm. It was up earlier, but I just checked and it’s down. If it’s still down tomorrow morning I’ll give the sysop a call to find out what’s going on. I know the host just switched servers, and it probably has something to do with the switchover.

    • Thanks for asking. It’s still there — badly in need of an update, but still there. I’d guess you used capital “S”s when typing the address in; if you use all lower case letters, it should work.

        Hi ya! Re: getting the website seesharppress.com back up & running, it looks like your hosting service (http://www.fastq.com/) requires you to do the following:

        08/10/2015 — Migration
        Priority HIGH

        Nameserver change:
        ns1.phxhosting.net
        ns2.phxhosting.net

        If your domain is registered at GoDaddy, Network Solutions or any registrar other than Phoenix Hosting/FastQ, we need to have you make the change listed above. Please note, Phoenix Hosting has no access to your account if your domain IS NOT registered with us. Network Solutions customer support: 1.800.333.7680, GoDaddy customer support: 480.505.8877. You may experience your site being down, or email not accessible, or both until the nameservers are set correctly.

        There are some changes you need to be aware of with cPanel. A quick rundown is available in our Knowledgebase

      • Yes, it would have been nice if they’d let us know about this when they migrated 😉
