The American experiment in Federal governance included checks and balances as well as a balance of power. Whether Cuomo can successfully sue on Congressional intent for discressionary spending is questionable.
The problem that the Trump Administration is confronting is not merely a law-and-ordet issue. It is local (and state) support for a Marxist uprising.
Heard this from a pulpit on Sunday - there is another tension, one between Romans 13 and Revelation 13. When the State begins to punish good as evil while upholding evil as good, the State becomes a beast that persecutes. How much of this do we see in Democratic states and cities?
There is always a day of reckoning. Those measures implemented or actions taken while "in crisis" will be fully examined on a calmer day. I saw this in Federal government years ago. It is a picture of the coming judgment of this world. Now is the time to make peace with the Son. Psalm 2 applies.
You have a good point, Brother Frank. But behind the scenes is a darker picture. The nation has been turned over to our sins. The Lord hasn't raised up another solid Christian leader in quite a while. But yet He has...the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanks, Brother Frank. The man who led me to accept Christ is defrocked, and the church he pastored dried up and blew away. Can't argue against anything that has been posted below. I'm just glad that someone, even as misguided as they appear, has the courage to stand up and do something like this man.
I can't tell you how many apps offend me and make me uncomfortable, in part because I don't know anything about them and assume their existance. They seem to proliferate. But a Bible app must be banned?
I can imagine that this Pope is creating more and more angst within conservative circles, but those who point to the Anti-Christ will be proven correct. The man of sin from Daniel will arise and the RCC will have been complicit.
How's your family and your situation, Brother Tim? Another tropical system is en route and seemed like you had many family members in the hospital. Everyone on the mend. Still praying.
Franklin Graham is right. The Lord's reconcilation runs vertical and horizontal (Ephesians 2). That is the heart of the problem.
But as much as politics cannot solve the problem, the divisiveness of Democrats in pitting classes and races against one another in order for the Progressives to gain add'l political power is wickedness. So while politics can't solve this, it sure can make things worse.
I don't know anything about this book or its author, but if anyone is interested in this topic, William Bradford's "Of Plimoth Plantation" is available for free from Gutenberg.org. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24950
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. Then I beheld, and lo, a black horse, and he that sat on him, had balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, and oil, and wine hurt thou not. - Revelation 6:5-6
Women have the right to be sexually abused for money!?! And that is supposed to be a "real" job!?! And then this "doctor" gets promoted to a position of worldwide prominence!?!
This is the most bizzaire situation I've seen in quite a while.
Without providing passages showing how God feels about "sex work" and without describing how much this appears to be a return to the ritualistic sex at the idol's temple and without pointing out that society has sexualized women to the point that their worth is wrapped up in the reaction they can cause, how is this somehow related to women's rights?
Amen, Brother John! It is refreshing for those who do not live in or hail from Texas as well. From an outsider's perspective, Texas has an independent and fairly Christian mindset. But must wait for our Texas brethern to comment.
I don't understand what the survey is getting at. Are they saying that religion is not believed to have any basis except in personal preference?
If so, for the unreserved, one can only expect that unless they are sold out for one of the many false religions. There are the equivalent of the prophets of Baal around, but most people we know who aren't Christians either believe that they are or dont really believe anything. I would be with them if it were not for the Holy Spirit awakening me. May the Lord make the preaching of His word effective unto the salvation of many more.
No one we've talked to across multiple states expects anything different than what this news item suggests. Such is the state of Truth in politics and the mainstream news media. "All is fair in love and war" is not a true proverb. Yet the Left sees this as war, and with the help of the Maoist CCP, has unleashed a horrific onslaught of disease, lies, and video tape. I'm fairly certain the lies and their repeating via every media outlet and one notable poster here are the worst of the lot. Meanwhile, our brother Wayfarer is right, although I say that the dragon wants Biden/Harris as those for that beast's agenda.
