Unbelievably Complex Social Behaviour In Dogs

You have to watch this. It's not CGI from a children's film. I laughed so hard when I first saw it.

That is not just a smart dog. It is a dog who decides he wants companionship and takes a series of steps to liberate his friends. Normally a dog would just look into their cages and bark back at them. This dog understands where the latch is and knows how to work it from the outside.

I did not know dogs were genuinely capable of abstract thinking to this degree. I've watched dogs take forever to get through a fence when the open gate was only a few meters away. That dog must be like the Nikola Tesla of the canine world.

It was really coincidental I was watching RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES last night and the scene where Caesar gives out cookies and begins to free his fellow apes at night after their keepers have gone home. Very similar.

There are many today who want have their sins washed away and be sanctified apart from the waters of baptism. Can you segregate water baptism from the blood of Christ? I do not believe you can do that.

Forgiven Christians have been justified by the blood of Christ. (Romans 5:9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.)

Forgiven Christians have been washed in the blood of Christ. (Revelation 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over all the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood.)

Forgiven Christians are sanctified by the blood of Christ.(Hebrews 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.)

At what point do Christians get washed in the blood of Christ?.
This is what the apostle Paul said to the Christians in Corinth. (1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.)

When are Christians washed and sanctified?

Acts 22:16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized,and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.'

Ephesians 5:25-26.....Christ also loved the church...26 that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Titus 3:5 not by works of righteous which we have done , but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.

When are Christians washed and sanctified? Christians are washed and sanctified when their sins have been forgiven.

Act 2:22-41

Acts 2:38 The Peter said to them, "Repent , and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins;and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Christians contact the blood of Christ, they are sanctified, they are justified, they have their sins washed away at the point of water baptism.


FAITH--John 3:16
REPENTANCE---Acts 3:19
CONFESSION---Romans 10:9-10
WATER BAPTISM---Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38

Water baptism is the point when men contact the blood of Christ.

(All Scripture from: NKJV)

The arms race will not stop at anything. Now an incompetent sniper can still get the job done, even better than a well trained man.

Ahaha, that's funny. Reminds me of golden retrievers I used to raise a few years ago. They could open a door by themselves no problem.

Wasn't Tesla a fraud though? He, and his magical death rays that he built, but can't show to anyone?
