Posted on 05/10/2012 10:33:29 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo
Looks like the end is drawing near, and one can smell sulphur.
I will guess first. (Location is optional but I put one down anyway). Please join, too.
Hell has a candle in the window.
“with that hope that springs eternal within the human breast”
Let’s get this over with soon. I’ll go for May 28, 2012. It’s Memorial Day. While mourning ours who were lost fighting people like this monster, we can have a measure of joy, as well.
My word! Are you people trying to upset actor from nepotism and political genius Sean Penn here?
June 10, 2012. Dubai.
I’m going with August 13, 2012. Which is not only Fidel Castro’s birthday, but mine as well.
Agreed. We dont have to use their weapons though.
Even he is made in God’s image.
Were they celebrating the death of Hitler, or the end of the war in Europe?
Put me down for December 12, 2012 when he gets hit by a Mayan Calendar falling on him...bwahhahaha!
I think that I saw somebody already pick my birthday, so I’ll go belated 06/25/12, location on his private jet while boogying from Cuba to a REAL hospital someplace.
...and Vanders9, while this may well and truly be “tasteless” (or whatever), I’d claim that I’ve already been called far worse for a he** of a lot less reason, so I’ll just call it fun.
Sorry about that.
7-24-12. Win or lose, I’m making a donation to FR.
You are correct.
This is an outrage, and frankly this is below FR, to have a Dead Pool.
Put me down for July, 10th.
11/13/12 - you beat me to it. I was proposing this date as a happy fiftieth birthday gift to myself.
Jesus said: "There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance." - Luke 15:7
I believe too many FREEPERS fail to see the BIG picture...and God's perspective because of their own sense of due judgment (forgetting that save God's GRACE...they would also be due judgment).
What would have MORE impact? A DEAD Chavez burning in hell...or a live, fully repentant, Chavez who has come to genuine Faith in Christ for his salvation?
What would be better...Obama the way he is...cursed...suffering due to some malady as some are praying for...or an Obama that is genuinely saved...who is now AGAINST gay marriage and abortion because he has repented?
The first just satisfies my sense of justice. The second fulfills GOD'S desires where he says He would than none would perish but that ALL would repent (2 Peter 3:9). The first accomplishes NOTHING but darkens my soul to the grace of God. The second saves a soul (which is why Christ came) and is a powerful testimony to all.
So, no, I will pray that Chavez AND Obama will be saved...and use their positions to spread the Gospel. Is that likely? My humanity says "No"...but through God all things are possible. The benefits of the second outweigh those of the first regarding the Kingdom of God. Come November I will vote against O...and continue to pray that Romney will be saved. The early church knew: Better a saved Claudius...than replace Claudius with Nero.
Bless...and curse NOT. Romans 12:14
Vander - these socialists have a long history of lining innocents up against the wall and putting a bullet into their brain. He has terminal cancer. he has time to make amends and peace with the Lord. Other than that, I feel no shame nor remorse in celebrating the removal of evil from a position of power.
In the larger perspective, innocents will be saved with his removal. I’m not saying Hugo shot innocents. But hundreds of thousands of them suffer under what he has done.
Regrettably, b@$t@rd$ like Chavez tend to live long lives. Prayers up for his awakening and correcting some of the evil he has wrought before his death.
2/15/2013. We don’t even know the type of cancer. It could be the one that just develops large random abdominal tumors, again and again. He could have another year or two. I hope he lives long enough to see the last day in office of his socialist buddy.
If he asks for forgiveness and ends up in Heaven, then he is better off there then on earth. If not, then he can go to Hell on July 15.
10/11/12. I’m counting on it.
Whenever it is, it can’t be too soon.
I’m wondering if the pool winner will be determined by the official date of this dried scabs death or the actual moment several weeks earlier? Commies run Venezuela so the truth of when this gasbag passes to his father in Hell will be lied about fer shur. I’m series, man.
“PS If 11 September it is, then I, too, will make a donation to FR.”
Me, too. To whoever wins, I will donate $100. to FR in your honor!
In that photo, he has an Obama-style haircut.
I’m going to guess the Mayans predicted 12/21/12 for the pool.
Sorry. I won’t be cowed into giving Chavez the slightest respect, and I’ll be happy for the people of Venezuela when he expires.
We should pray that Mr. Chavez repents and accepts Christ prior to his death, but that doesn't require that we ignore that this world will be a better place without him.
“...Sorry. I wont be cowed into giving Chavez the slightest respect, and Ill be happy for the people of Venezuela when he expires...”
Pretty much spot-on. One less communist is never a bad thing. No loss to humanity.
He wants to come to Christ, Christ will have him, and that’s between him and the lord.
But here on Earth, he’s caused a lot of misery to a lot of innocent people.
No loss. I raise a glass when he kicks. Probably several, actually.
Then I’ll try practicality then. Do you think you are going to persuade any of Mr Chavez’s supporters to your way of thinking by crowing over his demise?
A communist dies, the left is one down. Net gain one. A communist's eyes are opened, the left is one down and the right is one up. Net gain two.
Can you put me down for 1/1/13?
Every time a Commie dies, and angel gets its’ wings.
Chavez' supporters are just as debased and degraded as he is. I don't even try to convert empty headed liberals, let alone, full bore Communists. Those types are pure evil, and deserve nothing but the greatest contempt from people of good conscience.
I actually see one less Communist as a gain for humanity. I honestly cannot see the downside to his exit.
“...A communist dies, the left is one down. Net gain one. A communist’s eyes are opened, the left is one down and the right is one up. Net gain two....:”
Hugo’s eyes aren’t opening. He’s a die hard Castro wannabe. He’s a big boy, a grown man, who’s had PLENTY of opportunity to change his life, and he’s “socialismo!” to the end.
Your opinion is duly noted, and I defend your right to have a different one than mine.
No communist/socialist/etc, though, would waste a moment’s time giving you the same defense. Hugo and his ideological ilk would remove you from this Earthly coil in a heartbeat for disagreeing with their view of Utopia if you were in their way.
We’ll agree to disagree, and move on from there.
“...I honestly cannot see the downside to his exit....”
The only downside I can see is that the system he put in place, with his cronies and apparatchniki, will still be in place, and some other little commie slob will come in behind him to take over.
Interchangeable, replaceable, and totally worthless, just like his predecessor.
Pray for the people of Venezuela to rise up and rid themselves...IF they want to, that is.
That’s the question...how badly do they want to? Or are they content and happy with it?
Chavez may have had his “come to Jesus” moment and repented for what he has done. He claims to have grown close to Jesus as he approaches death.
He’s fed the injustice and violence of envy and economic jealously and he is a communist thug theif. I hope he repented. The road to hell is paved in communism’s good intentions.
No love? No forgiveness? No engagement? No chance of redemption at all?
I suspect that statement is not totally sound theologically. :)
Can’t wait for him to croke and go to hell and find out GW isn’t the devil.....LOL
Feel free to extend Hugo Chavez all the love and forgiveness you want. He'll get none from me.
