Legendary ABC News journalist Ann Compton says President Barack Obama launches into â€śprofanity-lacedâ€ť tirades against the news media in off-the-record meetings with reporters, and she calls his administration â€śmore opaque than any I have covered.â€ť
Compton retired from the network in August after a 40-year career, and she made the comments about Obama in a new interview that aired Sunday night with Brian Lamb of C-SPAN.
â€śI have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice,â€ť Compton said. â€śBoth were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals.â€ť
She added, â€śAnd I donâ€™t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell.â€ť...
John, the Jesus who you say and the rcc says is "... the ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD"..." is not the Jesus of the bible Who...is our High Priest, has completed the work of atonement,was born in the flesh to Mary, who was in need of a Savior and who was not on par or above Christ,nor is a co-mediatrix who later had other children,etc. etc. etc. Just in case you are unaware of the rcc catechism...the rcc believes in confessing to fallible men to mediate for us who call themselves "priests", the unfinished propitiation of their "christ" which has to be called down over and over to be a victim which you physically eat, born to a woman who is not the same Mary of the bible because the rc Mary was sinless, ETC ETC ETC Don't you know what the mass is? If you did, as a truly born again Christian, you wouldn't partake. I think that you either like to play games, are severely challenged in your reasoning capacity or just like some kind of,even if it's negative,dialogue.
No mere man should be so revered that we wrap our belief system based upon what he did or didn't do. The bible itself is our guidebook and no mans actions trump what God Himself has to say on any matter. We can be led by the Spirit but err in plenty of ways if we just don't understand or listen.
s c wrote: John wrote " as long as the church worships Him as God." There's your first clue. They may call Him "God" but their Jesus is not the One in the Bible; the One in the Bible is our High Priest, has completed the work of atonement,was born in the flesh to Mary, who was in need of a Savior and who was not on par or above Christ, nor is a co-mediatrix who had other children,etc. etc. etc
The Catholic Church Statement of Faith(The Apostles and Nicene Creeds) states "WE BELIEVE IN ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD", which is the biblical and historical Jesus(And not a false jesus) that the Catholic Church has always worshiped as God. Luther did not believe the Catholic Church believes in and worships a false jesus. Luther believed the Catholic Church believes in and worships the biblical and historical Jesus as God.

Jim Lincoln wrote: Yes, you do John Y., or you wouldn't attend Satan's church, you would Come out of the Catholic Church.
It is only in your warped mind that it is a requirement for salvation and entering Heaven to come out of the Catholic Church and unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church or one will not enter Heaven upon ones demise. Nowhere in the Bible is church attendance/membership in any church including an Evangelical Protestant Church mentioned as being required for salvation and entering Heaven upon ones demise. And thus it does not matter to Jesus what church one who has embraced Him as ones Savior attends as long as the church worships Him as God. If I state that I don't love the Catholic Church above Jesus then that is what I mean. I am totally dedicated to Jesus. I am not dedicated to the Catholic Church at all.
To be honest, convert, I am with 1517, I cannot tell what point you are trying to make. If it was just me, then I could plead ignorance, but am not alone here. If you are saying that because a person curses then they are not saved, then you are utterly mistaken and your theology is false. The Bible in I John clearly teaches if we walk in the light (the direction of our life) as He is in the light, the blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin. (thus it is not the perfection of our lives -see verses 8-10 and 2:1) If I am missing your point it is because it is not clear what you trying to state with the verses you are quoting.
That is an interesting perspective peruser, and our Lord did rebuke Peter for stating things that were from the perspective of the enemy camp. We all know that Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44) and I John (3:19) says we are of truth and (3 John 3,4) reminds us to walk in the truth. So, when you tell a lie (no officer I had no clue I was going that fast) or live a lie (like finding satisfaction in the broken cisterns of this world), the Lord could easily rebuke you with the same words He did to Peter. I wouldn't be so quick to condemn Peter. (I Corinthians 4:7; II Corinthians 10:12)
be subject, folks to the higher powers, even the demons (!), I suppose, for that is God's bidding (as they say) and when the swear words turn to prayer mats to mecca, obey (as they say) for this is God's will, and when the prayer mats turn to satanic sacrifice, obey (as they say) for this is God's will (as they say).
Jam 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! Jam 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. Jam 3:7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: Jam 3:8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Jam 3:9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Jam 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Jam 3:11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Jam 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Jam 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
and the Bible is Two-Edged:Heb.4:12 --cuts both ways:I agree!
"Then began he to curse and to swear - Rather, Then he began positively to affirm - ????, from ???? intensive, and ??????, I lay down, place, affirm. But the common reading is ?????, which signifies to wish curses on himself. The former reading is supported by almost every MS. of value, and is, beyond dispute, the true reading, and has been received by Griesbach into the text. The business is bad enough, but the common reading makes it worse. In Mat_26:72, Peter is said to deny with an oath; here, he positively affirms and swears, probably by the name of God, for this is the import of the word ???????."
Adam Clarke (1762â€“1832)
The question marks are due to the fact they were words printed in greek.
Not wanting to spend time defending ESV but it is not a paraphrase. If you think I and Mr. Clarke are wrong that is no big deal to me. As Owen accurately put it is the desire of every Christian to see the both the root and fruit of sin eradicated in our lives, but to assume we will reach perfection this side of glory is shown an error in the verses you cited and elsewhere in the Scripture.
The word converted deals with being turned around not his salvation. (see Matthew 16:15-20)
the Bible says Mat 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man
now, someone is free to add paraphrase to this as imply he was cursing AT someTHING or someONE or maybe even supply the words he may have used. But I will will stick with God's Words: it is interesting that Luke, when he had a choice to report on Peter in this historical even, after including the prophecy that Peter would need to later be "converted" says Luk 22:56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him. Luk 22:57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. Luk 22:58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. Luk 22:59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean. Luk 22:60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. Dr.Luke didn't give the same details that Mark(Peter's recorder) & Matt.give.
Convert, What point are you making? The context of my posts rests in the reality that Christians use profanity and should admit it. We may not use the recognizable terms, but the INTENT is the same. If this sin is not your weakness, praise God, but don't come across as if it is the unforgivable sin.
context: 1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1Jo 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous
