We are resurrecting a fun section of CACN, one which was called Thought of the Day (TOTD). As we create new content for the site, we attempt to add on a semi-daily basis the Thought of the Day. TOTD may be generated by an application called fortune-mod in a random semi-automatic process. The fortunes come from a database of over a million entries. Some of them are excellent, and most are apropos to the issue of the day.
We should always have in mind that all good things come from the Lord, and an attitude of thankfulness is proper. The Lord does not give us strife, harm, addiction, nor any of the ills of society. The Lord, rather, allows the enemy to tempt us and sometimes touch us with these things. Though none can fathom or understand the mind of God (How could the finite encompass the infinite?) and His reasons for allowing things, we can rest assured through faith that God tests us sometimes via the crucible of fire. When He does so, we are refined as gold or steel is in a smelter, and we are purer, stronger, and better for it. Thus we should always thank the Lord for the little and big things in our life, even when we are in the fire of testing...

These are pages dedicated to reading about Christ, Christian topics, and things of our Lord. These started when I became a member of Resurrection Fellowship, after hearing some great, pertinent, and penetrating sermons. Not all may appreciate these pages, but I didn't either, before I found the Lord. Or I would better say, the Lord touched my life. It's not been the same since, I can testify to the truth of that. So whatever your background, denomination, orientation, or whatever, these pages are for you. With that in mind I pray that
The owner of this site apologies to any individuals who were redirected to a pornography site instead of this site in the last few weeks. We are researching when the breach occurred, and will do our best to insure that this doesn't happen again. In retrospect this may have been a good thing, because it forced us to open the new site for business.
Due to this, all content has not been ported over, including registered user information. We don't believe any user information was compromised, but we will continue to analyze and mitigate the breach, so further apologies for any inconvenience to any readers or registered users.
We will migrate over content, comments, books, and user information as appropriate as time allows. Thanks for visiting coloradoan-anti-censorship.net!
Posted this about five times today and it disappeared immediately. Really? That's the nonsense that caused this website to be created. So we are having to go back to doing what we used to do. Remove it from the Coloradoan comments, and it will appear here. If it continues, I'll consider filing a complaint, because this is political speech in a critical political season. It's on the Can O'Corn comment thread...

“Craig Zimmerman & Coloradoan WAKE UP! You can erase my comments that cited the Washington Post, but the fact is that Trump is NOT FIT for the office of the president, period, obviously to the most casual observer. A presidential candidate who lies and
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? The female, who was such a friendly, pretty kitty, didn't survive 287. The male is now there, alone, and pining for his sibling. Still hungry, still cold, and NOW ALONE! No matter what your circumstance, there is a thing called the Humane Society that would have taken them both in. I won't judge you, because only God is the judge, but what a damn unnecessary shame. If I would have known they were abandoned, I would have gotten them in a carrier and taken care of it. Not knowing, and not knowing there was a pair, I left the female there, not wanting somebody to loose their cat… This was two Fridays ago, and she didn't look abandoned, so somebody had dropped them off within a couple of days. She came up giving me the hungry meow, being all friendly and sweet. I got her away from the street and into the yard behind the building, not wanting her to be run over by a vehicle. To no avail. Sorry pretty kitty, I let you down, and I can't undo what happened…
Folks, PLEASE DON'T ABANDON YOUR CAT. Take the time and have the human decency to take it to the Humane Society. Don't let the world's coldness fill your heart...
Lets go back a few centuries to the Founding Fathers. See those guys? Do you think they put an obscured right in the Constitution about gay marriage? That only a court in 2015 can see and fathom? Can you envision that? Can you envision Superman flying around pregnant? Because that is what it compares to for the Supreme Court to say that the United States Constitution somehow embraces the right to gay marriage. Really? If you believe so, then you need to research the Founding Fathers and what they believed in. Sodomy was not one of the things that they upheld…
So I TOTALLY stand with Kim Davis, that Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for contempt by a Federal District Court judge for refusing to issue gay marriage licenses. Rightful contempt of an illegal order. I stand with Kim Davis for having the moral conviction to stand up to judicial tyranny. I stand with Kim Davis for refusing to compromise on a question of following God or following the world. Chazak ve'ematz Kim! Stay strong, because God is on your side and
Who lives in heaven,
Holy be your name.
Your kingdom come, Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Thank you for giving us today's bread and blessings,
And please forgive us our sins,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Please lead us from temptation,
And deliver us from the clutches of the Evil One.
For yours is the kingdom and power and glory!
Forever, in Jesus' name, Amen.
Jesus told us “7 And when you pray, do not keep babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Matthew 6 (NIV)
We must remember that God does not lead us into temptation, but
My eyes don't work well, and I can't figure out how to post this without it being The World's Longest Single Paragraph, so ... with apologies ... I'm hoping it's okay to just post this link:
Site Meister Says: I asked the Spirit, and was told to help this man out. So following is the whole story verbatim as written by Neil. It's a very interesting story on the continued corruption and fraudulent judgment in our local community… Bear with the writer, as it's a long story, but well worth pursuing to its completion. Also, please become familiar with Proverbs 11:1 and 20:23, as the Lord detests dishonest scales (as in scales of justice). I pray that the Lord keeps us from becoming tools of Satan through complacency, compromise, or lack of caring. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
In my sleep, I still see all the handguns pointed at me, the flash of light from the snipers scope, and the tank.
My wife and I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, in October 2008.
Having visited the town on several occasions, we fell in love with the lifestyle that defines Fort Collins: rather small-town hospitality and pace, with most of the city amenities, weather that works for our favorite activities, a host of outdoor options, and relatively affordable housing.
These are some of the many and manifold promises of our ever-loving God whose grace is never ending...
