A: Very much, I learned things that I never would have imagined, [it has] given me opportunities that I never thought as well.

Q: Do you have any funny AVID moments?

A: When Cedric [Maser] fed Mr. Koontz a doughnut slowly, without saying a word, and he ate it.

Q: What is your favorite memory?

A: When I had to pee on a college field trip and the bus left me at Subway and everyone thought it was so funny as I was running after the bus, hands full of Subway.

Q: What were your expectations for AVID, and were they met?

A: I didn’t have really any clue what came from AVID, my expectations [went] through the roof, blown away.

Q: What would you change about AVID/would you do it again?

A: I would change the beginning of the journey, it was rough, but then we leveled out as we got older.

  25. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  39. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  40. Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate a great article… but what can I
    say… I procrastinate a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

  41. Would you believe that the Bible foretold of a global cashless society over 2000 years ago? In the book of Revelation we see this prophecy:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise we could still buy or sell without the mark among others if physical money was still currency. This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations.

    RFID microchip(see photo) technology will be the future of a one world cashless society being implanted in our right hand or forehead. Some time after the Antichrist takes the stage, Revelation 13:11-15 tells us that a false prophet will arise deceiving many to take the mark because of the miracles he does before men.

    This major Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled through the rapid growth of technology in our world. We can see how we have been conditioned through convenience in our every day life in different forms. More specifically by how we make payments…

    Since the ancient of times people have been using tangible currency to make payments among one another. Because of the rapid acceleration of technology in these recent generations, we have come to the digital age in which we are able to make virtual payments with such devices as debit and credit cards. We are now at the point where these cards have a chip contained with them, and some even allowing you to tap your card on a reader to make payment. Along with self checkout lines in our market places and the cryptocurrency industry making a rapid climb in such form as bitcoin, we can see that these are all stepping stones ultimately leading to a global cashless society.

    Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system where everyone would have a RFID microchip implant…

    The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible(Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent approximately one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that spot. This is what the book of Revelation says: “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to watch a video where Carl Sanders gives his testimony on how he helped design this RFID microchip and how it matches scripture in the Bible.

    Aaron Russo produced such movies as Mad as Hell, Trading Places, and America: Freedom to Fascism. He gained the attention of a man named Nick Rockefeller who told him their ultimate goal is to put an RFID microchip in everybody…

    Aaron and Nick(who is a lawyer) met through a female attorney of Aaron’s in the late 90’s. Nick had seen the movie Mad as Hell and knew Aaron was running for governor of Nevada. Knowing the impact Aaron was having on society, who being a freedom fighter standing for the constitution of the United States, Nick sought to befriend him to subtly recruit him into his secret society.

    Nick would come to visit Aaron’s home from time to time having dinner and sharing thoughts among one another. Nick had told Aaron 11 months before 9-11 occurred that there would be an event(though not sharing what that event would be), and from that event they would invade Afghanistan and Iraq to establish bases to help build the New World Order. And that there will be this war on terror where there is no real enemy, and the whole thing is a hoax; a tool used by the American Government to take over their own people through the propaganda of fear. Because you cannot define a winner, it can go on for as long as they desire.

    Aaron asked Nick what the purpose was for doing these things because they have all the money and power in the world. Nick replied by saying their ultimate goal is to put a microchip in everybody so they can have total control over the people.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to watch an excerpt of a historic interview with Aaron Russo where he reveals his conversations with Nick Rockefeller and more.

    In December of 2017 Donald Trump made history be recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people are now able to push forward in bringing about their long awaited Third Temple prophesied in the Bible…

    Donald Trump is being compared by many to the Persian King Cyrus who brought about the decree for the Jewish people to return to their homeland Jerusalem and rebuild their Temple around 539 BC. An Israeli organisation has minted a coin bearing US President Donald Trump’s image(see photo above) to honor the US leader’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. This coin also bears the face of King Cyrus, as well as the Third Temple on the back. It is being sold to help raise funds to build this new Temple.

    The Jewish people have been without a temple for almost 2000 years since the destruction of the second temple in 70 AD by the invasion of the Roman army. This event was prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 24:1-2 where He told His disciples, “…Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” They are looking forward to not only having a temple once again, but to also receiving their messiah who they have been long awaiting for. In an interview, one Jewish man stated that this messiah will be a spiritual guide and political leader to all nations gathering all religions under the worship of one god.

    History tells us that the Orthodox Jewish people did not receive Jesus as their Messiah even though He fulfilled 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection.

    In the book of Isaiah chapter 53, prophet Isaiah gives a clear indication for recognizing the Messiah who was to come found in the Jewish peoples own Tanakh(also known as the Old Testament). He writes that the Messiah would be despised and rejected by men, He would be put to death for our transgressions; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and His soul was an offering for sin. This chapter is clearly speaking of Jesus who is called the Lamb of God, who went to the cross to die for the sins of the world (John 3:16).

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this messiah who will seat himself in the Third Temple will be the Antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

    In the book of Daniel, prophet Daniel is given revelation from God telling us what the Antichrist will do in the last days: “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week(known as 7 years); but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering…” (Daniel 9:27). Jesus follows up with these verses and affirms to His disciples and readers about what is written in the book of Daniel by saying, “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place(temple) (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    Did you know that the 4 initial conditions and 10 creation events of how the universe and earth were formed written by Moses, in the book of Genesis, are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? Astronomer Hugh Ross calculated the probability that Moses could have known this by his own knowledge to be, conservatively, one in a quadrillion, quadrillion, quadrillion, quadrillion. Ask yourself, are you willing to bet your soul on them odds that Moses got it all correct by chance, or did God reveal it to him?

    Did you know that the Bible does not say the earth was formed in six 24-hour days, but rather six long finite periods of time? The universe is approximately 13.8 billion years old and the earth 4.5 billion. This does not contradict the Bible; it lines up with it. The Bible got it right from the beginning by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). And says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

    Earth resides in the darkest location within the Milky Way Galaxy where physical life is possible. And our Milky Way Galaxy lies in the darkest location in the universe where physical life is possible. Not only that, but so we are also able to observe all of the universe, from the cosmic beginning at the big bang, all the way through.

    Because we can observe the beginning at the big bang, we are able to confirm that the Bible had it right all along, that is, in the beginning God created the Heaven and Earth; as if God wanted us to discover Him through His creation and His word. The thought among scientists in years past was that the universe was eternal before they discovered a cosmic beginning. This discovery troubled some of them because they realized it favored the God of the Bible.

    The Bible, compared with the book of nature, has no contradictions, making ten times more creation claims than all other major “holy” books combined; while these other books contain scientific errors in them. Hugh Ross and his team have discovered these facts and many more. He has brought many scientists to faith in Jesus by showing how the Bible and the book of nature work together in harmony. His claims are based on published scientific documents. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Hugh Ross is quoted to be saying, “Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join ‘the First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.”

    He founded and helps run an organization called Reasons to Believe that brings out the latest evidences for the God of the Bible on a weekly basis, only making stronger the case for the Biblical God as time goes on.

    Thousands of archaeological discoveries throughout the years have affirmed the history of people, places and events that are told within the Bible. Ron Wyatt(shown in photo) is well known for being a part of three big historical discoveries that many may call myths…

    In the year 1959, in Turkey was found a man-made ship buried, preserved underneath volcanic ash, at the elevation of 6,500 feet. The Bible says Noah’s Ark rested on the Mountains of Ararat after the floodwaters receded. Not only was this ship found on the Mountains of Ararat, it is also the exact same length God told Noah to build the Ark; that is, 515 feet, or 300 Royal Egyptian cubits. Ron Wyatt, along with scientists from around the world, lead the research of this artifact for many years.

    “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground” (Genesis 19:24-25).

    Archaeologists have discovered round balls of brimstone, or nearly pure sulfur(98), to be rained down on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah turning it into ashes; unlike any other sulfur found on Earth. Geothermal activity near volcano’s produce about 40 sulfur, but is of a different kind. There is no geothermal activity around these cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    “…And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them” (Exodus 14:21-28).

    Moses and the Israelites escaped the pursuing Egyptian army when God made a way by parting the waters of the Red Sea. The parted waters came crashing down upon the Egyptians, destroying all who pursued.

    Artifacts discovered across the bottom of the Red Sea include wheels, chariot bodies as well as human and horse bones. These chariot parts have been discovered to be from the Egyptian army during the era when the Exodus occurred.

    The Bible is more than just a book, it is a historical library consisting of 66 books written by 40 different authors over a span of 1,500 years. These authors lived in different times and regions, yet the Bible harmonizes itself beautifully across all books with no provable contradictions found within it. It contains God’s plan for the redemption of mankind from the cosmic beginning of creation, all the way to the end unto God’s new creation. Giving names, dates, places, full of prophecy, geography, history and science that can be put to test, and has, confirming the Bible to be true. There are over 25,000 ancient manuscripts of the New Testament lining up within 99.6 of each other, with just minor typos; As well as the Dead Sea scrolls found in 1947 affirming the Bible we have today has been preserved.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

    Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:3-8).

    We need to have a personal encounter with the living God to truly know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. God is as close as we allow Him to be. It is sin that separates our hearts from Him. We need to come before Him in prayer, humbling ourselves with an open heart; confessing our sins and be willing to forsake them. We need to keep asking Him for the Holy Spirit so we may be born from above, so we may walk in the Spirit by living a holy life. He is willing to destroy the works of the devil in our lives making us feel like a child again, but we must be willing to truly receive Him by obeying his commands.

    When we receive Jesus, and His baptism, our body of sin is put to death, just as He was buried. And just as He was raised to newness of life on the third day, likewise His Spirit within us makes us alive again. The same Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead will dwell in us, so when the time comes, we may be resurrected into newness of life.

    God is more beautiful than anything we could ever imagine. He is the best Father we could ever have Who only wants the best for us. Jesus promises trouble in this life for those who follow Him, and we may wonder why He would allow us to go through certain trials. First start with this question, what is God doing hanging on a cross? It is not that God has kept Himself separate from the suffering of this world, but He himself came to be a part of it for the redemption of mankind. This life is a foreshadow to the eternal one to come, a refiners fire to test our souls to bring about a genuine end time harvest of the wicked and righteous. Without pain and suffering there can be no free will, and without free will there can be no true love.

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8).

  42. May I just say what a relief to find somebody who
    genuinely knows what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. A lot more people should look at this and understand this
    side of your story. I can’t believe you’re not
    more popular because you certainly have the gift.

  43. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  44. Right here is the perfect website for anyone who wants to find
    out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you
    (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely
    put a fresh spin on a subject which has been discussed for years.

    Wonderful stuff, just great!

  45. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  46. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it
