HAPPY ST. GEORGE'S DAY - And the truth about the life and death of the real St. George

Post by Tony Bennett on 23.04.15 8:07

Extract from Wikipedia, though it is missing one detail; it is probable that George, as a Roman soldier, spent two years serving at York Roman Arny Barracks, before returning to the Near East, his area of origin.

George was a man who lived and died for his faith in Jesus Christ. Today his flag represents purity (white) and the blood of those sacrificed for telling the truth (red). A saint worthy of my country, England:



+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

QUOTE WIKIPEDIA

It is likely that Saint George was born to a Greek Christian noble family in Lydda, Syria Palaestina, during the late third century between about 275 AD and 285 AD. He died in the Greek city of Nicomedia in Asia Minor. His father, Gerontios, was a Greek from Cappadocia, an officer in the Roman army; and his mother, Polychronia, was a Greek native of Lydda. They were both Christians from noble families of the Anici, so their child was raised with Christian beliefs. They decided to call him Georgios (Greek), meaning "worker of the land" (i.e., farmer). At the age of fourteen, George lost his father; a few years later, George's mother, Polychronia, died.[12][13][14][15] Eastern accounts give the names of his parents as Anastasius and Theobaste.[citation needed]


Then George decided to go to Nicomedia and present himself to Emperor Diocletian to apply for a career as a soldier. Diocletian welcomed him with open arms, as he had known his father, Gerontius — one of his finest soldiers. By his late 20s, George was promoted to the rank of Tribunus and stationed as an imperial guard of the Emperor at Nicomedia.[16]

On 24 February AD 303, Diocletian (influenced by Galerius) issued an edict that every Christian soldier in the army should be arrested and every other soldier should offer a sacrifice to the Roman gods of the time. However, George objected, and with the courage of his faith approached the Emperor and ruler. Diocletian was upset, not wanting to lose his best tribune and the son of his best official, Gerontius. But George loudly renounced the Emperor's edict, and in front of his fellow soldiers and tribunes he claimed himself to be a Christian and declared his worship of Jesus Christ. Diocletian attempted to convert George, even offering gifts of land, money and slaves if he made a sacrifice to the Roman gods; he made many offers, but George never accepted.[17]

Recognising the futility of his efforts and insisting on upholding his edict, Diocletian was left with no choice but to have George executed for his refusal. Before the execution George gave his wealth to the poor and prepared himself. After various torture sessions, including laceration on a wheel of swords in which he was resuscitated three times, George was executed by decapitation before Nicomedia's city wall, on 23 April 303. A witness of his suffering convinced Empress Alexandra and Athanasius, a pagan priest, to become Christians as well, and so they joined George in martyrdom. His body was returned to Lydda for burial, where Christians soon came to honour him as a martyr.[18][19]

A blue dragon? those darned 'creatives' are at it again.

My Son and his father are both Welsh. I'm English...I loved the banter in the car as we'd drive along the M50 and hit the Croeso y Cymru (Welcome to Wales) sign with the red dragon and the two of them would say 'we're home'. I'd say get your brolly out and that dragon is only red because it's the green dragon St. George of England slayed it's dripping in blood.....you can imagine Rugby international days in our house. My Father was Welsh and my Mother was Scottish. Dad would tell my mum that Scottish people were really Irish. Mum would tell Dad that the Welsh were Irish people who had learned to swim. Good hearty humour.

ETA: for the sake of political correctness I feel it necessary to apologise to the Irish who have the greatest sense of humour.

Ah yes. Wales. It costs £6.50 to cross the Severn Bridge to get IN
Getting OUT is free.
That must tell you something !

Lyrics to Men of Harlech
What’s the use of wearing braces?
Vests and pants and boots with laces?
Spats and hats you buy in places
Down the Brompton Road?
What’s the use of shirts of cotton?
Studs that always get forgotten?
These affairs are simply rotten,
Better far is woad.
Woad’s the stuff to show men.
Woad to scare your foemen.
Boil it to a brilliant hue
And rub it on your back and your abdomen.
Ancient Briton ne’er did hit on
Anything as good as woad to fit on
Neck or knees or where you sit on.
Tailors you be blowed!

Romans came across the channel
All dressed up in tin and flannel.
Half a pint of woad per man’ll
Dress us more than these.
Saxons you can waste your stitches
Building beds for bugs in britches
We have woad to clothe us which is
Not a nest for fleas.
Romans keep your armours,
Saxons your pyjamas!
Hairy coats were made for goats,
Gorillas, yaks, retriever dogs and llamas
Tramp up Snowdon with your woad on,
Never mind if you get rained or snowed on
Never want a button sewed on.
Go it Ancient B’s!

Were there really fire-breathing dragons?

Were there really fire breathing dragons?
February 20, 2013


The Bible talks about a fire breathing dragon called Leviathan in Job chapter 41.

“By his neesings (blowing air out of his nose) a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.” (Job 41:19-21)

There are four reasons why I believe there were fire breathing dragons.

Number one, the Bible says that there was an animal called Leviathan that could breathe out fire. Job chapter 41 is obviously talking about a fire breathing dragon.

Number 2, there are hundreds of legends about fire breathing dragons. Why do so many countries have legends about fire breathing dragons? Well maybe it’s because they really had fire breathing dragons. If these people were just making this stuff up, why don’t we ever hear a story about a fire breathing hamster or some other kind of animal? It is always a dragon.

Video to watch here: http://www.truthingenesis.com/2013/02/20/were-there-really-fire-breathing-dragons/

Number 3, it is chemically possible for this to happen. There are animals today that have this capability. That is what the bombardier beetle does. This beetle has a canon near his rear end where he can blast his enemies with chemicals that are 212 degrees Fahrenheit: the temperature of boiling water. Now where does this beetle get something to shoot that is 212 degrees?

How could a beetle evolve something that is so complex? What this beetle has is two compartments where he stores two chemicals. If these two chemicals combine they explode. Now the beetle obviously doesn’t want these chemicals to explode inside of his body. So he has a third chemical that is mixed in there called an inhibiter. This keeps the chemical reaction from taking place.

When he is ready to fire, he has a fourth chemical that he sprays in at the last possible second. This fourth chemical neutralizes the third chemical and allows the first two chemicals to explode.

A pretty complicated process for a simple little beetle. It is impossible for something like this to slowly evolve over millions of years.

I can just imagine the sounds of them exploding in the jungles as they practiced their chemistry over millions of years. No, these beetles did not evolve.

It is simply impossible for that to happen.

My fourth reason for believing in fire breathing dragons is that some of the dinosaurs had these strange compartments in their heads. Nobody knows for sure what these compartments are for.

Some of the dinosaurs had these big humps on their heads that were enlargements of their sinus passages. They are hollow and connected to the nasal passages of the dinosaur. Some call them the hollow-headed dinosaurs.

Tyrannosaurs Rex had a head the size of a car. His brain was the size of a baseball. The rest of his head was full of these compartments connected to his sinuses. If he had these special chemicals stored in these hollow compartments, he could have been a fire breathing dragon.

So, were there fire breathing dragons? Yes. It is chemically possible, it is anatomically possible, historically something certainly happened for us to have all of these legends about fire breathing dragons, and the Bible clearly says there was an animal called Leviathan that breathed out fire.

So yes, there were fire breathing dragons!



Dr. Hovind's award-winning Creation Seminar is his most popular set of videos, capturing the attention of all, young and old alike. God has used his fast-paced, fully illustrated seminar to bring thousands of people closer to Him.

Includes the following:

Part 1 - The Age of the Earth: Uncovers the follies of the Big Bang theory and exposes the religious beliefs of evolution.

Part 2 -The Garden of Eden: Describes the earth as it was before the worldwide flood, and how it was possible for man to live over 900 years, for plants and animals to grow much larger than today, and for dinosaurs to thrive along with man.

Part 3 - Dinosaurs and the Bible: Traces the biblical and historical references to dinosaurs and includes interviews with people who claim to have seen living dinosaurs.

Part 4 - Lies in the Textbooks: Shows how public school textbooks are permeated with fraudulent information in order to convince students that evolution is true.

Part 5 - The Dangers of Evolution: Reveals the terrible effects that evolution beliefs have had on societies throughout history.

Part 6 - The Hovind Theory: Blends scientific observations with Scripture in an explanation of what could have caused Noah's Flood, the Ice Age, the formation of coal, mountain ranges, and the Grand Canyon.

Part 7 - Question and Answers: Covers a wide variety of topics including radiometric dating, starlight, "primitive man," race origins, the mark of the beast, alleged contradictions in the Bible, and many more!

A woman I know has just obtained her Masters degree in Theology. She wants to enter the Church but she needs to be ordained and that's quite difficult.

She's the member of a non denominational church and is now applying to the C of E for a post.

It doesn't diminish her faith and I have to say her beauty shines from the inside out (she's in her late 50's). She's applying for jobs within the protestant Church because she needs to earn a living and she needs to spread the Word of Jesus in a Christian country. She is the most humble and natural person.

I forgot to add that she has a Masters Degree and has been accepted for a Doctorate.
