If Jiminyâs beloved Demoncrats have their way, the newly reintroduced Do No Harm Act will essentially negate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 and Christian business owners will either have to compromise their religious beliefs or close their businesses. As soon as I am done here, Iâll be contacting my representatives and asking them to vigorously oppose this bill. If you care at all about religious freedom in America, I urge you to do the same.
No, John, no questions, just a comment. It is heartening to know that I am not the only mortal on here, the only person who admits that there just might be the very tiniest possibility that some things I believe may not be 100 percent correct. At least there are two of us. I assume the others are omniscient. At least thatâs how some of them come across.
Well put, Johnâand no doubt well advised. My point of course is that before we turn to others for their take on scripture, we should first become thoroughly grounded in it ourselves. We can never spot error if we donât have a firm grasp on the truth.
It isnât difficult to get a proper understanding of the end times, John, or of any other biblical doctrine, if one will but take the following steps: 1. Get saved. 2. Read the Bibleânot what Dr. Bottlestopper says about the Bible, but the BIBLEâall the way through again and again and again and again and again, asking the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth. 3. In addition to reading the Bible, study the Bible thoroughly. 4. Memorize portions of scripture. 5. Meditate on the Word. 6. Above all, decide beforehand to believe everything in the Bible, whether you understand it or not. One reason people donât have a firm knowledge of doctrine is because they are lazy and uncommitted to personally searching the scriptures. They would rather have Spurgeon, Gill, Matthew Henry or someone else tell them what the Bible means than to take seriously their personal duty to learn it for themselves.
Hi Pfft. Got a new moniker I see, but the same old sweet disposition. You are a pathetic little twerp and if I knew who you and where you were I would turn you over my knee and teach you some manners. Crawl back under your rock, why donât you?
If Madame Warren cannot do basic math, there is no way she should be signing off on our national budget. A person worth fifty billion dollars would not âpitch in two centsâ as she put it. He or she would PITCH IN A BILLION DOLLARS, and thatâs just for one yearâs worth of babysitting (read: indoctrinating) somebody elseâs children. A bad plan all around.
If âThou shalt not kill,â means anything other than murder, then God incites us to commit sin when He says that murderers (and others) are to be put to death. And James, I think thatâs all for me, too. Thereâs no point in arguing with people whose only goal in life is to argue.
Adriel, if you were here in America slamming our country like that, Iâd challenge you to a duel. With English walnuts, of course. An American lad is also probably at least 70 times more likely to hear the gospel here in America than in the other countries you mentioned. Our flawsâand even Jim Lincolnânotwithstanding, we still have the greatest place on earth to live (John, please note that I didnât say âI thinkâ). Thatâs why people are scrambling to get in, and not looking for ways to get out. America: love it, leave it, or just stay the heck out of it in the first place.
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. When a lunatic storms into the church shooting up the congregation, itâs obviously a bit too late to try to live peaceably with him. Then itâs time to whip out the Glock and stop the manâs clock.
