A certain amount of healthy and balanced concern with current trends in government and the community is acceptable, as long as we realize that that interest is not vital to our spiritual growth, our righteous testimony, or the advancement of the kingdom of Christ.

Jesus' earthly ministry took place right in the midst of that difficult social and political atmosphere. Many of His followers, including the Twelve, to varying degrees expected Him to free them from Rome's oppressive rule. But our Lord did not come as a political deliverer or social reformer. He never issued a call for such changes, even by peaceful means. Unlike many late twentieth-century evangelicals, Jesus did not rally supporters to some grandiose attempt to "capture the culture" for biblical morality or greater political and religious freedoms....
The god that America trusts is money, so definitely appropriate motto to have in public schools đ° This is why the model was put on our money.

Obama's increasing the debt level was to help cure a GOP caused recession, which worked by the way. It certainly wasn't on the scale. Of what the Republicans have done.
Well to remind you, I'm an Independent so I could choose what to complain about or not. But, Mike, I think I will make you happy both the Republicans and Democrats has raised the debt ceiling just a day or so ago to even more astronomical levels. So, I suppose I should be blamed equally?
Just a Guy, well my Mike also, that has been a very conservative commentator on Fox news even who has commented on Trump's tweets. Seeâ
I would suppose that he hasn't quit the Republican party like George Will has either?
Mike, where are you remember my former pastor and the others I think it is not right to criticize the king of the country, in retrospect in a democracy the voters are in part "kings" of the country so as Theodore Roosevelt pointed out it is our duty to respond to Presidential actions:

Temperate speech should always be used in discussing any leader even though a democracy is not a kingship.
You will find this to be a general trend in Hindu India, and it has really showing up in these villages. The Indian government apparently has decided to stop winking at this trend of sex selection via abortion.

Since 1990, the NEA and the American Federation of Teachers have made over $140 million in direct political contributions. Over 97% of that went to liberals. That kind of political bias isnât at all representative of the unionsâ membership. According to the NEAâs own polling, there are nearly as many conservative teachers in the union as liberals. But the unionâs bosses have decided conservativesâ views arenât worth representing.
The unions abandoned teachers long ago. Itâs a small wonder more and more teachers are abandoning them....

This was only done a couple of days ago, so there still might be some conservative teachers left in the NEA.
