This puppet registry might as well be one of the viles of Revelation.
In the embassy request from Phillipine Wing Islands, we had closed with them but I would I would like to see what you guys think?
Gwrrrr and Timyu, thank you your deep questions and thoughts on Revelation. As one with a beginner's level understanding of this book of the Bible, I did a little researching on your question and learned there is a ton of information out there and many, many views about this book of the Bible. In addition to a thorough reading of the Scripture itself, does anyone have any recommended reading to supplement our collective understanding? Thanks and God bless.
I can't think of any books off the top of my head, but eSword has good commentaries, as well as being able to have the Bible on my computer.
online - Bible Query has some good short answers. Sermon Index has sermons, but I haven't really checked them out yet. STEM publishing has some good writings. WhoseFaithFollow has some good audio ministry (addresses, gospel messages, open meetings).
Hope that helps.
I don't know if you guys like modern Christian music but Red's new album is amazing.
Will have to give it a listen. We have Third Day's Miracle album on right now. It's a good listen, too. Welcome to the weekend everyone!
Try and Read Daniel Chapter Nine for a better Understanding of the book of Revelation. Any Questions Please let me Know.
The General Assembly, by a vote of 2 in favor and 1 not voting has passed the below bill and now forwards it for your consideration and signature. Many thanks and blessings:
Unified Christians Alliance
General Assembly No. 2
Bill Number 2014-0002
Purpose: This bill is intended to establish a registry of member nations and puppet nations under the control of persons seeking to have nations that reside in the UCA. It is further intended to ensure that only one nation conducts business on behalf of each person seeking to have nations that reside in the UCA. Finally, this bill is intended to prevent persons that have nations that reside in this region from engaging in misrepresentation.
Section 1, Definitions:
A. “UCA” means the Unified Christians Alliance region in the NationStates online game.
B. “Person” means any human being(s) that controls any nation that is a member of the UCA. To the extent any person also controls another person, computers or electronic media of any kind that can be used to control a nation that is a member of the UCA, those computers and/or electronic media will be considered an extension of the word “person.”
C. “Control(s)” means having influence of any type where such influence results from a person creating a nation, influencing another person to create a nation, or using a computer or electronic media of any kind to influence a nation without full disclosure to all members of the UCA.
D. “Primary Nation” means the one nation controlled by any person that may speak and act on behalf of all nations residing in the UCA that are under the control of any person.
E. “Puppet Nation” means any nation, except a Primary Nation, under the control of a person who controls more than one nation. A Puppet Nation may not be a Primary Nation.
G.”Conduct[ing] business” means voting, posting on the Regional Message Board, posting on the Regional Website, and communicating via Telegram or any other means with nations that reside in the UCA.
H.”Misrepresentation” means intentionally conducting business or otherwise communicating or acting in a manner that would create in the mind of a reasonable person an impression that is not true.
I. “Reside” means take up residence in the UCA for other than an extremely brief transitory period during which a nation is moving from the UCA to another region. Any nation that remains in the UCA longer than 4 hours or that manifests an intent to remain in the region for anything other than a transitory period shall be deemed to reside in the UCA.
J. All other words used in this bill have the meaning normally attributed to them in the English language and may be defined using a widely accepted dictionary, such as the Merriam Webster dictionary.
Section 2, Required Disclosure, Updating of Designations, Public Posting of Information, Notice
A. All persons that control nation(s) that reside within the UCA shall designate a Primary Nation and inform the Chancellor and/or his or her designee of their designation of a Primary Nation. This designation shall be made within 30 days of the passage of this bill and thereafter within 24 hours of a nation beginning to reside in the UCA. If a person only controls one nation within the UCA, that person shall still be required to designate the one nation as his or her Primary Nation.
B. Through their Primary Nation, all persons that control Puppet Nation(s) that reside in the UCA shall inform the Chancellor and/or his or her designee of the names of all their Puppet Nations residing in the UCA within 30 days of the passage of this bill, and thereafter within 24 hours of such Puppet Nation(s) beginning to reside in the UCA.
C. The Chancellor or his or her designee shall post the listing of Primary Nations and all their associated Puppet Nations on the Regional Message Board after the initial designation required by Section 2, Subsections (A) and (B) of this legislation, and shall maintain and post the list as appropriate from time.
D. The Chancellor or his or her designee shall notify new nations that reside within the UCA of their disclosure obligations under Section 2 this law.
Section 3, “Conduct Business” and “Prevent Misrepresentation” Duties of all Nations Residing in the UCA
A. All persons shall use only their Primary Nation to conduct business within the UCA.
B. No person shall use any nation under their control to perpetrate misrepresentation on the UCA, its member nations or any persons controlling UCA member nations.
Section 4, Penalties
A. Any person that violates Section 2, subsection A or B of this legislation shall have all nations it controls (regardless of when they are created or otherwise come under the control of such a person) ejected and banned from the UCA for a period determined at the discretion of the Chancellor. Such ejection and banning may be made permanent.
B. Any person that violates Section 3, subsection A or B of this legislation shall have all nations it controls (regardless of when they are created or otherwise come under the control of such a person) ejected and banned from the UCA for a period determined at the discretion of the Chancellor. Such ejection and banning may be made permanent.
C. Notwithstanding the discretion afforded the Chancellor in Section 4, paragraph B of this legislation, any person that violated Section 3, subsection A or B of this legislation more than once shall have all nations it controls (regardless of when they are created or otherwise come under the control of such a person) ejected and banned from the UCA for a period of at least 24 months. Upon a third violation of Section 3 of this legislation, such ejection and banning will automatically become permanent.
Section 5, Determining a Violation and Enforcement
A. None of the powers described here are intended to conflict with the UCA Constitution. Rather, they are incremental to the powers outlined therein.
B. The Chancellor shall have broad discretion to determine a violation of this law. He or she may use necessary and appropriate investigatory means (including but not limited to delegation, self-initiated review, and direct questioning of any party with knowledge about a suspected violation) to gather information required to make a determination that this law has been complied with or violated.
C. Upon determining that this law has been violated, the Chancellor shall enforce the penalties contained in this legislation and shall provide a brief statement on the Regional Message Board outlining his or her reasonable basis for making the determination. No trial or other judicial process shall occur before enforcement action is taken.
D. Affected parties may ask the Chancellor via NationStates Telegram to reconsider the decision to enforce this law. The Chancellor shall provide notice on the Regional Message Board that he or she has received a request for reconsideration. The Chancellor may grant or deny the requested reconsideration and shall articulate his or her reasonable basis for doing so on the Regional Message Board.
E. Only after the Chancellor has denied a request for reconsideration may an appeal be taken to the Judiciary.
F. The affected parties may request an appeal via NationStates Telegram to the members of the Judiciary. The Judiciary shall provide notice on the Regional Message Board that it has received an appeal. The Judiciary shall deny the appeal if it determines upon reviewing the appeal that the Chancellor had any rational basis for making his or her decision to enforce this law. Only upon a finding that the Chancellor had no rational basis and has grossly abused his or her discretion shall the Judiciary overrule a decision by the Chancellor to enforce this law.
Section 6, Effective Date and Application
This law shall become effective immediately upon approval under the provisions of the UCA Constitution. It shall apply prospectively only.
