LOL  Repent for the same "Christians" that slaughtered them, sold their wealth and destroyed their culture in Central and South America.  Or how about the "Puritans" in New England that slaughters, stole their lands and sold men, women and children into slavery.  As Mark Twain once wrote in A Tramp Abroad, "The church is always trying to get other people to reform; it might not be a bad  Read More...

I think Ms Jacobs and her "spirit" should keep their uninformed and bigoted comments to themselves. I have study Native faiths and seen first hand their spirituality. It has survive despite years of oppression from the European colonists. What I think Ms Jacobs should be focusing on his tolerance for those spiritual path is different than theirs. No one path to the Divine is better than the other...just different.

Religions are man-made, and because humans are imperfect, so are their religions. The "spirit" however is God-made, and is perfect in every way. This means there is sometimes a great difference between religions/religious beliefs and God. So who then do we follow? If one has to think twice about that, they have serious problems.

"Religions are man-made" and man also invented this god that will chop your head off and not think twice about it..

As an ordained minister and a Biblical researcher for more than 30 years, I can only say this - how ignorant can someone be? God's forgiveness is immediate and complete when one accepts His son as their Lord and Savior. To say anyone must repent for their ancestor's sins minimizes the power of God, and therefore, is devilish in itself.

banning people.....so childish
05:32 PM on 07/21/2013
You come across as a very ignorant, hateful and uneducated man oh wait youre christian. Thats normal then
06:38 PM on 07/21/2013
ninetailedfox - First of all, I'm a woman, a Christian Native American woman who has researched The Bible for over 4 decades.
My words are no more hateful than hers or yours.
The Bible clearly God's forgiveness IS absolute. A true prophet of God would know that. Since she doesn't seem to, I doubt her prophetic claim and her words.

OK, Cindy Jacobs says that Native Americans need to repent for their ancestors Pagan beliefs, actions. Why not those of us with European, Asian, African, Aboriginal, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, etc ancestry. Shouldn't we repent for our ancestors Pagan beliefs, actions?! What's good for the goose is good for the gander is what I say!
11:37 PM on 06/18/2013
Come to think about it. Shouldn't Cindy Jacobs apologize for her Pagan ancestors?!
02:02 PM on 06/18/2013
Too bad we can't [still] stone these "modern day" [false] prophets!

Ezekiel 13:3 "Thus saith the Lord God; 'Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!"

Ezekiel 13:7 "Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken'?"

All religions know one thing. Why all the other religions are wrong. Each religion can tell why the others are all wrong. And do you know what? They have that part right. All religions are wrong.

What kind of "Dr." is she anyway? *smirk*
10:46 PM on 06/30/2013
Whatever that "smirk" means. There are many types of doctorates. Just because it's one that you don't recognize or respect doesn't invalidate it. However, she couldn't be farther from the truth. God's forgiveness is complete and immediate when one believes on His son. (Romans 10:9-10) To think one has to atone for the sins of their ancestors minimizes perceptions of God's power, and that is devilish.
01:17 PM on 07/03/2013
I smirk because it would seem her doctorate of whatever variety it happens to be, has taught her "one has to atone for the sins of their ancestors" (this wing-nut notion came from *somewhere*, no?), and while it may appear I'm not recognizing or validating it (her "Dr." status), I'm definitely questioning it.

On the day of Disclosure, the heads of primates like hers will explode all over their TV sets while I'm going to just sit back, and laugh and laugh and laugh.
When the 700 Club comes on and makes *its* commentary about it, I'll laugh some more.

Okay, I had to stop and re-re-rewrite what it was I wanted to say, as I am pagan/naturalist and I don't want to prove this woman right by showing her just how insanely mad she just made me with her stupid video insinuating that people who don't follow the "Word of god" are the reason that the world is falling apart. Excuse me a few minutes while I die laughing.

I don't mean to sound judgmental in any sense of the word, but the fact of the matter is, is that it's people like Cindy Jacobs, who thump their bibles a little too hard and make the stigmatization of what being, anything but Christian really means. Am I to believe that because I shuffle a tarot deck, and read cards to answer real life questions, that I am a horrible person?

Is it wrong to believe in reincarnation of ones soul?

Is it wrong to believe in the possibilities that maybe in another life a person could -have- been an animal?

No. It's not, people feel what they feel, because it's what is real to them. Between lives I truly believe that I have a period where I am a butterfly. But hey, let's save the crazy talk for the bible thumpers :\

I am an ordained inter-denominational minister and Biblical researcher for over 30 years. In my studies, I have found the beliefs of Native Americans and sometimes pagan/naturalists to be closer to God than anyone ever in a cathedral. The beliefs are simple and clear...no muddying of the water over the specific politics of the religions doctrine and dogma. "One's closer to God in a garden than anywhere else on earth." (Unknown)

The poisonous spirit of those who would monopolize religion is one of the nastiest and longest lasting fruits of monotheism.

How did it come to this?
12:32 PM on 06/13/2013
Gus, you're exactly right. There's nothing more dangerous than someone who believes that there's one absolute and exclusive truth, that he knows what it is, and that this entitles him to kill those who disagree with him. Whether it's a religion or an ideology.
10:49 AM on 06/12/2013
People who have no tolerance for differing beliefs are the ones who need to repent. There is not only ONE way to believe in God. Everyone is entitled to believe differently. This myopic view is what is turning people off joining Christian churches. Telling people how they should believe in God (and/or vote) is wrong. I think it would be great if all religious institutions lost their tax-free status as well, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Considering the horrendous treatment the native Americans received at the hand of the white "Christians," maybe she should reconsider which group needs to repent.

Well,how do you like me so far?

Hmm, after contemplating my Native great-grandmother, the beauty, strength and resilance of Indigenous Americans... what I would like to say to you, Ms. Jacobs is, "Oh. well. BITE ME."

Now, in response to her great prejudice to spiritual representation of crocodilians...I am going to make an altar to Sobek, and make an offering for the spirit of Steve Irwin... then pray for protection for all people against the powers of ignorance. Blessings.

(((Dr.))) Cindy Jacobs? no, this is not possible? she has a doctor's in theology? I doubt it. she can't possibly have a PhD in anything. is this fraud? FBI?

Book learning and common sense are two completely different things.
10:52 PM on 06/30/2013
There are many types of doctorate degrees. I'm no fan of hers because I consider her disrespectful and ignorant, but just because her doctorate is one you don't believe in doesn't negate it the least little bit.
03:37 PM on 07/26/2013
Rb, of course you miss the point.  She must present credentials and they must be known.  She can't even keep her IRS files in order.
