Thatâ€™s hilarious, Jim. But in fairness to you, name someone who the Repubs wanted to disenfranchise. I know itâ€™s a stretch, but could you be specific?

First of all, no historical revisionism is allowed. The voters didn't elect Biden, the cheaters did.

You misspoke when you said we are a democracy, but we'll ignore that for now.
A question is do you personally think abortion is immoral? How can it be immoral to abort the living in one State, but not in another? Isn't that what you propose when you say morality is determined by majority vote? Your weak attempt to make murder a political issue is sad.
By the way, saving babies' lives is not forcing the kingdom. It's just sanity. Your endless repeating of rubbish won't change that. At the end of the day, rubbish remains rubbish.

For instance, we know a Church that has focused intently on the Lord's attributes...lifting the gaze of the attendees and viewers from horizontal to vertical in order to fight back wide spread improper fear.
QC, Perhaps a simultaneous teaching/preaching on how to discern deception would also reduce irrational fear. It is always good to focus on the Lord, but we are not called to ignore the wiles of the devil.
James Thomas wrote: Here's one example of what your looking for. The term "wondering stars" is a metaphoric descriptive term for the angels which kept not their first estate (verse 6) Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Hi James. Hereâ€™s where I would have issue with this. Those for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever donâ€™t quite add up to guiding lights. They are not sources of light at all. Other than the word â€śstarâ€ť the commonality eludes. I think of the term â€śshooting starâ€ť which is commonly used, though as you know is not a star at all, but used of meteors. No relationship to stars. As for the star that guided the â€świse menâ€ť it wasnâ€™t wandering, but had direction and goal.

One big reason that it's not like Florida in 2000 is the Dominion vote switching scam. You should bypass reading leftwing Democrat propaganda, and look into it. There is so much information available, there is no excuse. As for an opinion, there is no way on this green Earth that Biden, of all people, could win more popular vote than anyone in history. Sorry, but he can't generate interest, let alone enthusiasm. It just doesn't add up.

Yes, this would be a miracle, but there is nothing difficult for the Lord. When they got to the manger, the Lord said stop, you are here. Or an angel from heaven helped them navigate using the star. Of course the Lord didnâ€™t need to use a star, but He did. Saying it was solely an angel doesnâ€™t detract from the meaning, but it changes what was said. An angel would have been just as miraculous. Just because we donâ€™t understand how or why the Lord used a star doesnâ€™t change the fact that He did. No argument with you or QC, just the musings of an old man.
Agree with your thoughts on this, Frank. We also could ask where else in Scripture are angels presented as taking the form of bright lights in the sky?
â€śCanadian province reversed course, will allow....â€ś
No doubt some are grateful. But it wasnâ€™t the provinceâ€™s to allow or disallow in the first place. Assumed authority is no authority. â€śBecause I said soâ€ť is not a lawful reason. Proper government isnâ€™t parental.

I suppose since they'll be over in 40 days most educated people are gritting their teeth and thinking that it will be least be over by then. I don't hear that Nancy Pelosi is trying to have another impeachment trial, though I certainly agree that she can, or at least censor Mr. Trump. đź‘Ť â€”-
Did anyone seek impeachment or censorship when Al Gore tried to upend the election of Bush through weeks of repeated vote recounts? Long term memory loss, Jim? Or standard liberal hypocrisy?

Why get a jab? Arenâ€™t you wearing a mask? Maintaining social distancing? Avoiding church meeting? You know, the things The experts say keep you safe.
Adam is either alive or dead. He canâ€™t be both. What was it God said? You are dust and unto dust you shall return. But itâ€™s only his body that was made from dust. He became a living soul when God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. Therefore his body perished and returned to the ground. The life that was in him was from the life that is God, not from the ground. How can that perish?
