meter high club
  • In the spirit of the mile high club, but for those who couldn't afford the plane tickets so are just taking the train.
Me and my girlfriend thought we would join the ranks of the prestigious mile high club, but had to take the train home instead. We went for the meter high club instead, but forgot that they can throw you off a train a lot easier than a plane.

SELECTIVE BELIEF! BY STEVE FINNELL

Why do some men choose to disbelieve that Jesus died on the cross and was bodily resurrected from the grave? It is recorded in the only history book inspired by God, the BIBLE.

Men are very selective about which historical facts they conclude are reliable.

Men agree that Gaius Julius Caesar August was the first Roman emperor. Yet, no man alive witnessed that historical event. It is accepted by faith.

The world believes that Abraham Lincoln was president during the Civil War between the states, however, the only proof that Abraham Lincoln lived and there was a war; is recorded in history books written by men. It is accepted by faith.

Men are confident that Socrates, the Greek philosopher, lived and died. That is accept by faith.

Nobody doubts that George Washington was the first president of the United States. They believe it by faith.

The existence of the great military leader Alexander the Great is questioned by no man. Men believe that he existed by faith.

Men are confident that Napoleon Bonaparte lived and was a great, French, political and military leader. They accept it by faith.

There no living witnesses to confirm that these historical figures lived nor that the historical facts are true. It is all accepted by faith, as written in history books.

The fact that Jesus lived, died, performed miracles, and was resurrected from the dead was not only recorded in God's book, the BIBLE, but also was recorded in other books of history.

SELECTIVE BELIEF IS WHEN MEN BELIEVE IN HISTORY, UNLESS IT IS GOD'S HISTORY!
