Chris GP, well for one thing our elections, presidential ones anyway, run for at least a year. voters usually know where a party stands. I wouldn't be surprised if the Republicans in this instance didn't do it on purpose hoping something like this would happen. They're certainly getting there publicity out of it, and if they take it to court there'll be more publicity. one thing right before a person votes he doesn't need any more propaganda he already knows who is going to vote for.
it's nice that the Christianity Institute that for you over in England. I would hope they would point out:
Proverbs 17:7 Excellent speech isnāt fitting for a fool, much less do lying lips fit a prince.
Boris Johnson wasn't and isn't known for his veracity, but the leader of the Labour party certainly was no prize either.
Did you also notice,Adriel, what Christ had to say about the Pharisees? This Modern group of Pharisees are not going to have any better luck and are just as irritating. : annoyed:
"We believe that the Bible teaches a premillennial view of the Kingdom of God (Zechariah 14:4ā9; Matthew 25:31ā34) and that Israel and the Church are distinct throughout biblical history and prophecy. We donāt see that God ever commanded the Church to take charge of and revamp society. Instead, we see the command for believers to preach the gospel as in Matthew 28:19ā20. God intends to implement worldwide social reform Himself (Revelation 19:11 ā 20:4)."
ā¢āTrump is not the American president America deserves, in my opinion. But he definitely is the American president China deserved,āĀ theĀ Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist told CNBC on Tuesday.ā ā¢We needed to have a president who was going to call the game with China. And Trump has done it,ā Friedman said on āSquawk Box. ā¢āStill, Friedman said he believes Trump should have built a broader coalition with American allies to take on China over trade practices and other geopolitical issues....

It's interesting that two New York Time's columnists, And perhaps more? , but anyway also David Brooks think that Trump is doing what should be done on China.
5. āWhen you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. 6. But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7. In praying, donāt use vain repetitions as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. 8. Therefore donāt be like them, for your Father knows what things you need before you ask him.
Perhaps a bunch of them can volunteer With some intercity charities? --anonymously of course.
2. Therefore, when you do merciful deeds, donāt sound a trumpet before yourself, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may get glory from men. Most certainly I tell you, they have received their reward. 3. But when you do merciful deeds, donāt let your left hand know what your right hand does, 4. so that your merciful deeds may be in secret, then your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
Warren Throckmorton wrote: I need to research this a bit more but so far the only definition on the CDC website of a pandemic I found is this one:
" Pandemic refers to an epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, usually affecting a large number of people. Epidemics occur when an agent and susceptible hosts are present in adequate numbers, and the agent can be effectively conveyed from a source to the susceptible hosts."

On Sunday [last Sunday?], Twitter removed a post retweeted by Trump that claimed the CDC had āquietlyā updated its guidance to indicate only 6% of the countryās coronavirus death toll ā roughly 9,000 deaths ā was actually caused by the virus, according to a CNN report. The tweet said the remaining 94% had āother serious illnesses.ā ...

16. There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: 17. Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, 18. A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, 19. A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers. ----
As a veteran I'd never vote for Trump āš Of course there's many other reasons too. if you want to put your moral agenda into law, which is basically foolishness , you should have picked an actual Republican.
Romans 8 7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so; 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.---
Pick the person that has the better moral character, which is Biden. Four years from now It certainly could be somebody different and a different party.
"Concerning the methods used by Black Lives Matter, peaceful protests against racial injustice are appropriate. But Christians should never be involved in rioting, looting, violence against police officers, hateful speech, and/or āreverseā discrimination/racism against non-blacks. Injustice and hatred will not be ended by more injustice and hatred."āš

What MacArthur seems to be unaware of is that most of those people would be alive today if they had not contracted COVID-19.
What is embarrassing for MacArthur is that this has been known for months. The CDC has released reports [ https://tinyurl.com/ycru96jm ] before showing the underlying health conditions of deaths and hospitalized patients.Ā Yet, in ominous tones, MacArthur makes it appear he is revealing some previously concealed truth. While his scary announcement may serve his persecution narrative, it also makes his congregation and followers more vulnerable to the virus....

Timothy,I tried to be informative, not so much entertaining which some people think their comments are, but really aren'tā
Mr. Throckmorton can be Informative and entertaining. But I refer to his blogs for being informative, such as this YouTube, which I think it's even on the John MacArthur site, and it certainly is informative.
I should have pointed out it's only about 6 minutes long.
But, just like George F. Will I will own up to the fact that I'm going to vote for Biden You can look at Mr. Will's columns on the Washington Post and see the good reasons for voting for Biden
Penny, I don't think you're still around on the board, But I did support half heartedly when we talked about John McArthur. Your thoughts on John McArthur. I will say that I entirely agree with you now.
Back in 2016 this was on Warren's Throckmorton's blog. The YouTube is even truer today
Warren Throckmorton wrote: But please consider this: A vote for Donald Trump is not necessarily a vote for Donald Trump himself. It is a vote for those who will be affected by the results of this election. Not to vote is to vote. God will not hold us guiltless.
The evasion of responsibility is highly disturbing. If you are going to vote for Trump, own it.
Earlier this year, John MacArthur blasted fellow evangelicals for supporting Trump. At that time, he said Trump was āa model of everything , everything that is destructive in morality in our culture.ā [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpogWiu8snQ[/youtube]

I still like John McArthur's NKJV Study Bibleāš
Isaiah 1:12-17 When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts? Bring no more vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me. New moons, Sabbaths, and convocationsā I canāt stand evil assemblies. My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to me. I am weary of bearing them. When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you. Yes, when you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves. Make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil. Learn to do well. Seek justice. Relieve the oppressed. Defend the fatherless. Plead for the widow.ā
God is really angry what people who call themselves his children but worship at the feet of man āš
Keller disavows the "Social Gospel" that has characterizedĀ Mainline ProtestantĀ churches, which advocates liberal political causes and de-emphasizes the doctrines of sin and substitutionary sacrifice. However he has also criticized the evangelical alliance with Republicans and argued that Christianity is a much broader global movement that agrees with some liberal and some conservative issues (and critiques them both).Ā He has argued for giving to charitable causes and caring for the needs of the poor based on biblical texts such as theĀ TorahĀ and theĀ Parable of the Good Samaritan....
