Naked Bible Podcast Episode 184: Hebrews 5:11-6:20

Our series on the book of Hebrews continues the writer’s emphasis on the faithful priesthood of Christ – this time as the basis for turning away from a theology of dead works and clinging to faith. The centrality of not turning from the true gospel of faith in the work of Christ and God’s acceptance of the ministry of his Son – of continuing in “believing loyalty” to the gospel – is the central focus of the controversial statements in Heb 6:4-6. Does this passage teach that believers can lose salvation or reject salvation? Is there a difference? What about eternal security? This episode focuses on these questions.

Return of the ‘Unusual Comet’ 96P spotted by ESA, NASA Satellites

The ESA and NASA mission SOHO got a visit from an old friend this week when the highly unusual comet 96P entered its field of view on Oct. 25, 2017.

The comet entered the lower right corner of SOHO’s view, and skirted up and around the right edge before leaving on Oct. 30. SOHO also spotted comet 96P in 1996, 2002, 2007 and 2012, making it the spacecraft’s most frequent cometary visitor.

At the same time, comet 96P passed through a second NASA mission’s view: STEREO that also watched the comet between October 26 and 28 from the opposite side of Earth’s orbit.

It is extremely rare for comets to be seen simultaneously from two different locations in space, and these are the most comprehensive parallel observations of comet 96P yet.

Comet 96P — also known as comet Machholz, for amateur astronomer Dan Machholz’s 1986 discovery of the comet – completes an orbit around the Sun every 5.24 years. It makes its closest approach to the Sun at a toasty 11 million miles – a very close distance for a comet.

When comet 96P appeared in SOHO’s view in 2012, amateur astronomers studying the SOHO data discovered two tiny comet fragments some distance ahead of the main body, signaling the comet was actively changing. This time around they have detected a third fragment — another breadcrumb in the trail that indicates this ‘Unusual Comet’ is still evolving.

Mysterious booms and shock waves shook Bridgewater NY and the border of Tijuana-San Diego

A loud boom and a flash of light can be heard and seen in the surveillance footage below taken by Philip Vicari from his home on Popular Street in the Bradley Gardens section of Bridgewater, New York on Wednesday, November 1 around 8:30 p.m.

On Thursday, November 2, a strange phenomenon shook the Tijuana-San Diego border that many residents believed was an earthquake. They heard a rumble before the shock around 11.00 in the morning. Doors and windows rattled due to the powerful shock.

But neither the United States Geological Survey (USGS) nor any other seismological entity detected any earthquake in the area.

Luis Mendoza Garcilazo, a seismologist at the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada (CICESE) ruled out that it was an earthquake or a telluric movement. (Telluric movement is an electric current which moves underground or through the sea.)

The geologist Pat Abbott indicated that if something had happened below the surface it would be registered by the multiple instruments that exist but because that was not the case Pat Abbott is convinced, what shook the residents of the border originated from above, reports univision.com.

Mendoza pointed out that according to the records in the CICESE measurement instruments it was a “shock wave” like the one that occurs violently when an object travels faster than the speed of sound.

Such a “shock wave” can be caused by various situations, such as an explosion, the passage of a supersonic airplane, the entrance to the atmosphere of a meteorite or an Unidentified Flying Object – UFO.

While it remains a mystery what might have caused the booms and shock waves near the Tijuana-San Diego border and New York it seems that something is moving at a tremendous speed over the US.

“Facephenes”: Brain Stimulation Creates Phantasmal Faces

Have you ever seen a face on a football?

In a new paper, neuroscientists Gerwin Schalk et al. report that brain stimulation caused a man to experience strange hallucinations. The patient saw faces in everyday objects, including an orange soccer ball and a featureless box. The researchers coined the word “facephenes” to refer to these face-like perceptions.

Schalk et al. studied a 26 year old Japanese man suffering from intractable epilepsy. The patient was implanted with a large number

UFO Sighting in Dallas, Texas on 2017-10-29 18:30:00 – I saw these objects they appeared to be falling burning started to glow gold and all disappeared

I live on the 18 fl and look over a large unobstructed flight path of southwest airlines and jets flying into love field as the pass near the city.
anything out of the ordinary catches our eye. on october 29 at 1830 hrs i observed a bright flash of movement in the southern quadrant of my view. at the moment i saw these objects about 10, they appeared to be falling burning pieces of debris from space at first, they glowed bright gold as if the sun was illuminating them but then more grey and red objects shaped like somewhat flattened globes appeared and some bright lights could be seen clustered high overhead barely visible. the objects continue to approach and descend together rapidly and i thought to grab the camera and start video and photographic record. the objects moved quickly to the north about 2 miles before they were almost overhead and they started to glow gold and all disappeared together. i have two pics that show a red object near a gold top shaped object and you see the red object disappearing in the next frame. the sighting lasted about 1 or 2 minutes. then about 1 minute later another solitary object similar also appeared and disappeared in the same area but as i said a few minutes later however with no sparkles of light, it just vanished as it got to the same zone.
