    I look at the addresses that the sender emailed, if it is a personal message to me I read it. Most people tend to block mail these things to a contact folder. I know it might sound selfish but if my friends want to give me a personal touch they would make the message personal.

    Here is one I recieved just a few minutes ago….. “Hello Everyone, I was asked by a very special friend to help
    a teacher who is using an e-mail prayer as part of her
    religion class. It was difficult for me to decide who I
    thought would DO this. I hope I chose the right eleven.

    Please send this back to me. (You’ll see why.) There is
    nothing Attached. Just send this to eleven people. Prayer is
    one of the best gifts we receive. May today there be peace
    within; May you trust God that you are exactly where you are
    meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities
    that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you
    have received, and pass on the love that has been given to
    you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let
    His presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the
    freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for
    each and every one of us. Now, send this to 11 people within
    the next 5 minutes and remember to send this back… I count
    as 1…you’ll see why. Suggestion: copy and paste, rather
    than forward”

    Those kind of emails that tell you to forward it to so many people or in such an ammount of times and you’ll have a prayer answered or get something ammount to witch craft.

    I delet them and tell the person seding them to stop doing it!

    the emails that state things like “forward this to 10 people or something bad will happen” is not of God…it is superstitious and of the devil and they should be deleted immediately…

    Here is one I received today from a very good friend:

    Meeting @ 11:00 This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven, He saw me, and asked: “My child, what is your greatest wish for today?” I responded: “Lord please, take care of the person who is reading this message, their family and their special friends They deserve it and I love them very much.” The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginning, but not its end. This message works on the day you receive it. Let us see if it is true. Pass this on to your true friends. Something good will happen to you at 11:00 in the morning; something that you have been waiting to hear. This is not a joke; someone will call you by phone or will speak to you about something that you were waiting to hear. Do not break this prayer; send it to a minimum of 5 people .

    I’ll just say that this has become a bit of a hobby for me but the truth is, it is sad. There are two big area’s of internet forwards that pluck at the heart strings of Christians the most…
    1. Inspirational/”Christian” messages
    2. Pro war/”patriotic”/military

    Like mentioned on the show today, most carry threats of “bad luck” or promises of blessing along with them.

    Some believers seem to forward and participate with mystical-like faith, not daring to tempt the forward gods. It’s a shame but I pray that most people are just bored and, like I think Stu implied, are willing to participate due to the lack of price involved to send email. Most of it is the equivalent of internet gossip that has the potential to actually influence public opinion.

    Probably the most popular message I have seen is one about Microsoft running some email test and promising everyone who forwards it some check after the supposed test is concluded. – Totally false.

    Then there are sad ones, about some child that got hurt and needs some dire medical procedure to live.

    But in my opinion, the most sinister and dangerous to American Christians are the political/patriotic messages, a high percentage of which are totally false. A surprising number of believers believe them all at face value.

    I am pasting the one about bin Laden and Oliver North because it is one of the most popular (with many variations floating around over the past few years)
    Also see: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/north.asp

    These are very common and we Christians sadly participate in the fraud, unknowingly or not.

    Subject: Do you remember this?

    Thought you might be interested in this forgotten bit of information……….

    It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration.

    There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree, but what he said was stunning!

    He was being drilled by a senator; “Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?”

    Ollie replied, “Yes, I did, Sir.”

    The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience, “Isn’t that just a little excessive?”

    “No, sir,” continued Ollie.

    “No? And why not?” the senator asked.

    “Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir.”

    “Threatened? By whom?” the se nator questioned.

    “By a terrorist, sir” Ollie answered.

    “Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?”

    “His name is Osama bin Laden, sir” Ollie replied.

    At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn’t pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn’t. A couple of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. Why are you so afraid of this man?” the senator asked.

    “Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of”, Ollie answered.

    “And what do you recommend we do about him?” asked the senator.

    “Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth.”

    The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was shown of the clip.

    By the way, that senator was Al Gore!


    Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called “political prisoners.”

    However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands, The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, “insisted” that all prisoners be released.

    Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center. This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified.
    It was censored in the US from all later reports.

    If you agree that the American public should be made aware of this fact, pass this on.

    Do Not Break – it is 3 years strong

    This has not been broken since 9/11/01, please keep it going…
    This has been kept alive and moving since 9/11. In memory of all those who perished this morning; the passengers and the pilots on the United Air and AA flights, the workers in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and all the innocent bystanders. Our prayers go out to the friends and families of the deceased.

    Send this to at least 10 people to show your support.


    ****It sounds good but it is big time false. Unfortunately it has circulated like crazy because of people’s desire to be “patriotic”. I believed ti when I first saw it. But the best I have been able to determine there are at least several versions of this, including this newer one with Al Gore and the added paragraph or two about Muhammad Atta being released by Clinton in 1993 (that’s all newer additions). The original terrorist in question was Abu Nidal from Pakistan (not Osama bin Laden) whom Oliver North was threatened by and that he used to justify his government-purchased home security system. It was absolutely not Osama bin Laden. In fact in the year in question (1987) it is very likely that bin Laden had close ties with some very prominent US officials and agents as we were involved in supporting the Taliban to oust the Soviets from Afghanistan still.****

    God Has Kept Me Here For A Reason!

    Repeat after me: God has kept me here for a reason. I survived
    because He has a plan for me. All my bad relationships, the
    severe illnesses, the addictions, the consequences, the bad
    credit, the repossessions, the death of my loved ones, the
    disappointment of those who I thought were friends, the
    negative thoughts, or the lack of support; etc. on and on… I
    made it because I am BLESSED! I release and let go of all past hurts, misunderstandings, and grudges because I am abundantly
    blessed! I recognize them as the illusions they are, and sent
    from the enemy to kill my spirit, steal my joy, and destroy my
    faith; For GOD IS ALL THERE IS. All else is a lie! Now give
    yourself a hug, wipe your tears away, and WALK IN VICTORY! I
    love you, but more appropriately, God loves you BEST! Be blessed and know that you are at one with THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD! In addition, may the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other. Genesis 31:49. Amen!
    Now since you are a true child of God, you know that with
    every blessing, a blessing is required! So be a blessing to
    another, by passing this on. IF YOU DO IT RIGHT NOW, GOD WILL
    BLESS IT RIGHT NOW!! Be Blessed “The Will of GOD will never
    take you where the GRACE of GOD will not protect you.”

    Any time anyone receives an email that they deem suspect, such as the one the person posted about Ollie North and osama, they can always check out its validity at http://www.snopes.com. This is an incredible website that verifies the truth or falsehood of any email hoax or rumor.

    By the way, Christians should hav no part in forwarding email rumors or hoaxes. They equate to lying and gossiping. The Word says “let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Forwarding emails that are not true are just like lying…

    I can not stand getting the emails that tell you that you are portraying an ashamedness of Jesus if you do not pass on these emails. Here is one I received that just really explains it all.


    Jesus Test – I Scored 100

    HE is the only one that can save this country from the people that want him removed from the government. Our great nation will not stand if we delete HIM from all aspects of our government as the atheists want.

    He knows that’s all that counts, not the passing on of emails THIS IS A LOVELY PICTURE WORTH PASSING ON. I do not
    support making my friend and family feel guilty if they do not pass on this message. That is my message today
    Jesus Test

    This is an easy test, you score 100 or zero. It’s your choice. If you aren’t ashamed to do this, please follow the directions.
    Jesus said, “if you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.”
    Not ashamed Pass this on . . only if you mean it. Yes, I do Love God.
    He is my source of existence and Savior.
    He keeps me functioning each and everyday.
    Without Him, I will be nothing.
    Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.
    Phil 4:13

    This is the simplest test . . . If you Love God, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he has done for you.
    Send this to ten people and the person who sent it to you!

  10. thats really good information. well done.
