Thank you,Christopher and June for all of the input. June, "common good"...a phrase parroted by our commander in chief...with the enthusiastic support of the speaker,another RC. Christopher,the faux pa,in his new year's message said that it is a requirement to pray to Mary in the Christian life. How people cannot see that that is an insult to Christ is beyond comprehension. The RC deceivers are and have been infiltrating nursing homes... I guess they figure that those who are vulnerable and doped up are easy prey. Sadly, I have just spoken with a lady who is being told that she needs to question her salvation by an RC church...they are,of course,stressing the need for works.
Un- I don't listen to conservative talk radio but can't miss the last bits before the weather...I have a disability and am having to monitor the temperature constantly. I don't watch tv. There is a lot of junk talk even 15 seconds prior to hearing the weather and because it's so endless and repetitve, one cannot help but hear the same old from Trump's Rc cronies. Sometimes I wonder why they can't just play the same program every day...same theme,,just names change. I listen to many sermons on this site. If you recall, I recently suggested one from Cooley. Look in the mirror, "Doc", there's a beam in your eye,passing judgment like that. so..God is pleased with us? We're not under judgment? Really? If that's the case, He should apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. We have sodomites wanting a voice in this country because they've seen how well it works for fornicators,adulterers,baby killers,sports and hollywood idols...etc.
All I ever hear on the radio stations is a constant rant against the "liberals" and how Trump is always under attack...not one station...all of the major radio stations with the RC hosts like Hannity and Limbaugh,etc. One gains more support if they are seen as having unreasonable, evil opposition. "Seen"...being the operative word. If one does a little research,one finds RC and ecumenical ties and comaraderie between the liberals and the conservatives. I am not a conspiracy theorists but even the NFL,more likely than not, was used to evoke feelings of patriotic and nationalistic unity by "staging" or playing on players refusing to bow to the anthem. How misplaced are our priorities?..but expected for a nation that idolizes men in skinny pants running down a field with an appropriately called "pig" skin. Unclean on all counts. Placing our faith in the leaders here and being more identified as an american than a "Christian" is the objective...works better that way for control of the masses. And many who actually believe that we are blessed with Christian leaders who are going to reverse our path are disillusioned if they think that we are not in judgment.
Thank you for the input, Christopher,ladybug and CV.
There are many who believe that they are Christian but are self deceived. It is concerning that Trump downplays forgiveness and depends on his own efforts. However green one may be, the understanding of forgiveness and ones lack of self sufficiency in relation to faith are necessary foundational truths. One who thinks that they are well, do not see the need for a Physician.
Billionaires don't control the media? Media and propaganda go hand in hand. Only the filthy rich can run for office. No surprise that those with the most "control" and dubious connections are ecumenically minded and RC advocates.
Quoting Scripture only makes sense if it is applicable to the subject at hand.
CV...how do you arrive at the conclusion that he has a fear of God?
America should be grateful for the grace which God has extended to it. We certainly are not worthy and it would be very easy to see how foreign countries would look at us and not see us to be anywhere near a "Christian" nation. Killing babies,sacrificing its children to immorality,mocking God,encouraging adultery,fornication,blasphemy,etc... I see judgment on us and we have and have had just the leaders that we do deserve.
You wouldn't commend the faux pa for any correct stance but you would commend others who are his ardent admirers? The vp says that he is a Christian but at a recent roman catholic prayer breakfast spoke how he loves the RC church...stating ‚ÄúWhile my own faith journey has taken me and my family in a different faith direction, I want you all to know how much I cherish my Catholic upbringing and cherish the church,‚ÄĚ Pence added. ‚ÄúIn fact, I just attended mass with my mom this weekend when we were in Chicago with family.‚ÄĚ Political figures do what serves them best. Much of the media pushes these "Christian darlings" on us who are nothing but ecumenists. I haven't seen an article on here addressing Jorge Bergoglio's latest pow wow with the Muslim leader signing a document promoting a one world religion...in the name of interfaith respect where by we all shake hands and embrace each others religion. Embrace,was the word.
It's odd that she is being attacked for having been a bartender yet the Pres,during his visit to Ohio, said,in defense of Kavanaugh,that "they said Lincoln was an alcoholic, give me 6 more like him"...negating the idea that those who imbibe,as Kav did and still does,are any less qualified to fill positions on the Supreme Court or the office of Presidency. Double standard...if one is liberal and drinks they are fair game for criticism. Yet, if one is "conservative" and does the same, they are to be commended for any "good" that they do. There is no party or group that has the Christians' backs. We should only look to the One who does and pray for all who don't know Him, especially, the ones who think that they do.
Unprofitable, you might profit from listening to Cooley's sermon in reference to black faces and abortion. We are to judge unrighteousness which would include planned parenthood supporters and faux pa sympathizers. If one cannot judge unless perfect than your comment is mute as it is a judgment. We wouldn't be able to discipline our children. We wouldn't be able to have judicial systems. You wouldn't be able to laud the praises of political figures who aren't "as bad" as others.
I thought that Pence was ecumenical. AS Cooley pointed out in a recent sermon, priorities are eschewed...thanks to the media...controlled by the billionaires. As long as the political leaders can keep us distracted and throw us a bone here or there, Christians are oh so faithful to their parties.
...more media propaganda. An article which reads..." provided manna for those in attendance",has behind it,an agenda. People who want the support of Christians are not ecumenical nor do they fund planned parenthood. Pray that the Lord will truly open these "Christian advocates'" eyes and change their hearts to serve somebody other than themselves for primarily their benefit.
I wouldn't agree with the "solution" but there is no doubt that the weather is way wacky now...much like birth pains increasing in intensity/frequency. In the mid-west we have had spring for the last week (60F temps) which followed a polar vortex which was preceded by a few other days of springlike temperatures between 50s and 60s. It has been commonplace for quite a few years now that any kind of thunderstorm carries with it the potential for straight line winds/tornadoes. Back in the day, when there was a thunderstorm, it was not common to also experience tornadoes. Now,disasters are almost par for the course. Emissions problem or judgment or both...but definitely, an issue.
