Tithe: the Biggest Story of the Year


(George Tichy) #144

Well…, in the case of a dispensary we should not be open to be bought out. We can make much more money just selling the white stuff to the SDAs!!! Imagine selling “White Pot”… :rofl:


(George Tichy) #145

This is why they allowed only Coke… :roll_eyes:
=-=-=-=-=–=

The color has to be white. Mandatory! “Edible Whites” … LOL


(George Tichy) #146

Sure! The revolutionary “White Powder” that has been responsible for visions in the past. No law against it then, no law against it now…
Problem solved!


(Kim Green) #147

LOL…you haven’t disappointed yet! Love the name. :laughing:


(George Tichy) #148

I better Copyright the name to make sure that…, oh wait, Copyright is not something respected by the SDA anyway. So just forget it.
But, let it be clear, I did not copy this “Edible Whites” name from any plant based book… :laughing:

I already can see the title of the Article on Spectrum:
"Plants: The Biggest Story at the GC Session"

Fulcrum7’s article will be,
"The 2020 GC Visionary Delegates Speak Out"

And on Advindicate,
"The Perfect People Dreaming Big"

And the GC warns, “Bearded people will be triple-checked checked at the entrance to make sure their beards are not plant based!” …

Can’t wait for Indianapolis! It sounds promising…

G.–
NOT ALL vegetables are approved by the Food Police.
Genesis 1:29 – see I have given you every herb that yields seed which
is on the face of the earth…"
Apparently God made a mistake in His chemistry Lab.
They were “good” but not perfect.

QUESTION – are “spores” considered “seeds”?
I love mushrooms.

Could try non-alcoholic beer. It still says Budweiser or Heineken on the can or bottle. Imagine building the world’s larget beer can pyramid at the back of the stadium.


(Steve Mga) #151

Robert –
Hieneken is the best one. Had it in Providence, R.I. once on a trip.
Don’t like Budweiser’s as well. But can’t get Hieneken down here.
It is imported. Budweiser is domestic.


(Kim Green) #152

Love all of the creative titles…there would have been a career for you in journalism! :smiley:


#153

A spinoff to that was Gypsy Sisters. You feel like an anthropologist five minutes in.:rofl:


(George Tichy) #154

Yes, but it belongs now to a Brazilian group. Burger King and Heins also belong to the same group.
Probably none of them pays Income Tax… Too rich, part of Trump’s buddies…


#155

Interesting question!
Main difference: Seeds are produced by flowering plants. Spores are produced by fungi and non-flowering plants. See the following chart:


(Kim Green) #156

For sure! That show could not be sustained because of the lifestyle antics/issues of those dysfunctional families. :laughing:


#157

Yes, plus the fact that you can’t film in prison. :wink:

Wouldn’t it be fascinating to hear an anthropologist’s impressions of a GC session? The attendees making covert caffeine runs to the nearest open Starbucks. Did tithe money pay for the closure of the closest one? The late night trips to Taps and Dolls, whose menu boasts several meatless appetizers, as well as pepperoni pizza. (We all know pepperoni doesn’t count as pork, right?) Naturally, anyone caught there blowing off steam with a game of pool will just be witnessing. Jesus ate with sinners, you know. And of course the Division presidents and their demure wives will all stay at the Motel Six…

SDA corporate takes copyright rather seriously (jealously?) Here’s a list of 71
Stay calm and save your “Gasp!” until the end.

Well, yes…filming in prison is usually frowned upon. :rofl:

I would love to hear an anthropological “review”. Nonetheless, I have lots of fun psychologically breaking down and disecting the Doug B. “Messages” and other “official” SDA communiques.

If I had more impetus…I could easily disect the articles on Advindicate as well. I could have my very own blogsite breaking down all of the propaganda and spin. :smiley:

I am sure that all attendees will be on their best PC behavior. :laughing: Do I really think they all abstain from coffee or meat at home…no. :wink: According to the Health Survey less than half of the members are veggies and this is dropping every decade.


(Frankmer7) #160

You wanna teach good health as part of living life to the fullest…abundant life? Great!
You wanna make diet and food consumption as a means to test orthodoxy, to judge fitness for belonging and baptism, to judge spirituality, and as a means of behavior control? Get lost.

As a pastor friend of mine used to say…“These guys need to go eat a ham sandwich.”

Thanks…

Frank


(Kim Green) #161

Ironically…most of my “alternative” non-christian friends wouldn’t consider the SDA lifestyle very healthy to begin with!

Nonetheless…salvation should not be associated with food to begin with. Right now, Adventism is losing ground on its emphasis on health anyway.


(Andreas Bochmann) #162

Wow, I never knew pastors’ salaries in the US were high enough to afford personal airplanes. I am so pleased the church is looking after their own… Thanks for sharing the video. While it was likely intended to get more donations (and probably was successful) - I would hope it could serve as an eye-opener.

When tithe becomes the biggest story of the year … something is wrong somewhere.


(George Tichy) #163

Another idea for the brownies made with white chocolate: Edible White Brownies … :wink:
