Jed: Are you assuming all 'liberals' support abortion?

You might, for all you know, be wrong

Unless you happen in your house to own a dictionary that says:

'Liberal: A person who believes abortion is correct'

You seem to rant about a lot of types of people, but you never bother to categorize them properly, or list each type of person and what type of person you define in wht way

I fear it is that you do not know English.....

Lets see if I understand you correctly:
1: you claim the conservatives are smarter than liberals
2: you claim that conservatives ( the top 50%) are the ones who pay taxes
3: you claim that the liberals are the ones who are spending the tax dollars

and you still think conservatives are smarter because...?

As to liberals using conservatives money to spend on the poor (if that is how you see it)

Trish, I didn't think I was going to accomplish anything answering you concerning the country. You are pushed on condemning the actions of someone, but not the actions of another. you have no clue and neither does anyone why we go into countries. You might think you do but no one knows the real reasons. All you know is what all liberal newspapers and tv stations tell you. If you are so worried about us going to Irag, why are you not worried about the unborns who's brains are suck out, I am talking about millions of them. Why are you as a Christian not speaking for them? They depend on you for life, they cannot defend themselves.
You vote liberal no matter the cause.
---Mark_V. on 2/21/13


StrongAxe: Thanks for your defense regarding guilt by association. I have come to realize in my 70 years of life that there are good people and bad people both in and out of the Church, and in ALL denominations. The official position of the SDA church is that abortion is murder, and is thus proscribed. The fact that there is a small fraction that disagrees is not a valid reason to condemn us all. We also have a small fraction that embraces Theistic Evolution. That too is proscribed, and I think you know my feelings on that subject.

Our Church teaches that there are God-fearing Christians in every denomination (and even some in no church at all), and that none but God is able to judge anyone's fitness for heaven.

---jerry6593 on 2/21/13


Francis: You have obtained a reputation on CN as an ardent defender of the Ten Commandments - a reputation which I believe is woefully undeserved. As a liberal, leftist, socialist, etc. you routinely uphold the violation of the 10th Commandment - "Thou shalt not covet". Coveteousness, or ENVY is at the heart of the marxist doctrine of class warfare (take from the rich to reward others). It was ENVY in the heart of Lucifer that began the saga of sin under which we now suffer. Are you sure that's the side you want to be on?

Cluny:

You said: I normally ignore all posts by SDA members since their church believes it's all right to kill unborn babies.

One could just as easily say I ignore all Americans because their country legalizes klling unborn babies, or I ignore all Samartians because they worship in the wrong place.

This is the same kind of slippery slope that people like the Westboro Baptist Church tread - and thus condemn virtually EVERYONE EVERYHWERE via guilt by association.

In contrast, Jesus never dismissed anyone merely because of who they were. Once, he ignored a Canaanite woman, who then said dogs ate their masters' table crumbs, and he praised her faith, and gave her what she wanted (Matt 15:22-28).

The upper 50% of wage earners that actually pay federal income taxes.

What is his name?
Don't be absurd.

Where does he live?
Any where in the U.S.

How does he get his money?
Most commonly by working.

How much is he giving?
Up to 65% of his income in total taxes!

Is he paying taxes like the rest of us?
Yes, he is one of only 50% that do. The lower 50% of wage earners (perhaps yourself) pay zero federal income taxes.

Does he tell the government what they should do with his money?
No. The money is stolen and misused by liberals.

\\We the LIBERALS are happy to help the poor IN ANY AND EVERYWAY possible

WE the LIBERALS make no apologies for helping the poor
---francis on 2/19/13\\

I normally ignore all posts by SDA members since their church believes it's all right to kill unborn babies.

However, if francis (or anyone else) is convinced that his faith in Jesus requires him to vote a certain way in the public sphere, then God bless him.

St. Paul said that whatever is not of faith is sin. (THIS is the context, btw, in which Luther said, "Sin boldly.")

When it comes to politics and other secular matters, I believe that ALL of us are conservative in some ways and liberal in others. I know I am.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

bro. elder, no one knows me by Shirley here. lol maybe that's a good thing. I have yet to understand francis. all I know is he believes you have to keep the 10 commandments to make it to heaven.

Planned Parenthood commits an abortion every 94 seconds. They also received $363.2 million in federal funding in 2009 (not counting all the medicaid payments they receive for patient visits). Is that the "compassionate" spending you liberals are doing with our tax dollars, Francis? Taking human lives, how compassionate.
---Jed on 2/19/13

Francis are you willingly ignorant or just dence? What we pay in taxes, AGAIN, is not giving.
You have proven to me that you, like the rest of the crowd like you, are "liberal" only with someone else's money.
What have you given out of your pocket to help anyone?
If you have given 1/4 as much as Shirley or myself for the benifit of others, this last year, I'll repay you what you gave.
You want to make a "political statement" and shurk a personal responibility. Typical
"liberal" mindset.
---Elder on 2/19/13


francis, there is a difference in helping the poor and the entitlements that are issued by the government. Washington is making slaves out of the poor. it has become a way of life that some don't have to work. I know a young lady who could make more on welfare than she could make working a job. by the time she bought gas and paid day care, nothing was left for a weeks work. I really do understand why some have that mindset.
---shira4368 on 2/19/13


No Francis, the money comes from you, the LIBERALS, taking money from REPUBLICANS and giving it to "poor" people who are in that position due to lifestyle choices. Don't be so foolish as to think that just because you vote for money to be taken from other people and given to you, that you are responsible for feeding the poor. The people who are paying the money are the ones feeding the "poor", regardless if they are doing it willingly or not. Stealing money from working people and giving to non-working people so that they will continue to vote for you doesn't make you compassionate and that doesn't mean you are feeding the poor. It just makes you a thief.

The poor get a lot from US ( WE THE PEOPLE VIA OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS)

Food stamps, and medicaid for example, where do you think the government get funds to pay for these?

Let me tell you where the money comes from:
We the liberals, vote in officers who PROMISE us that through legislation they will direct a portion of our ( WE THE PEOPLE) taxes to be used for the poor

We the LIBERALS are happy to help the poor IN ANY AND EVERYWAY possible

WE the LIBERALS make no apologies for helping the poor

Francis posted Mark 12:14 trying again to prove his "point." But, paying taxes is not giving to the poor no matter what the government does.
Tribute is not a tax anyway. Jesus was speaking in Mark 12 about "tribute" that was a fee paid to conquerors to maintain favor with them. Taxes are levied, imposed and/or voted in to be paid by citizens. None of these is giving to the poor or giving in general.
If you want to have favor with Caesar then give him tribute to gain it.
If you want to have favor with God then give Him the things He asks of you like giving to the poor yourself.

For bro.Jed thankyou, just saw your post, yes, live here in Detroit. Had come back some years before mother died. She loved here.
Bro.Jed I was crying out in such anguish,before God this city really needs God ( Revival/ Deliverance) Too much corruption! & It's NOT everyone but, too much drugs! People NEED God, No matter the problem...Jesus is the problem solver! Like I said before & it is true People even some who.attend church are in it,too. Truth they have given up! God is able. He expects us to live right! He is NOT a blind God. A Pastor from Spain told me, God sees you & He will respond! He wants your love, your tears will move Him! He is a Holy God!

I do not place government ahead of God. God does not need any government enforcing the ten commandments for Him.

The ten commandmenets or any other form of morality should not be placed in the hands of ANY government to enforce by law. It must be from the heart

Most important, there is nothing in the bible that links demcracy to God. The government that God set up were Monarchies with absolute power, not elected officials.

People can serve God in any form of Goverment, dictoatoship, demoncracy, maxist, socialist, communists, arnachist does not matter. Read Daniel

Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
---francis on 2/18/13


MarkV: You really shouldn't assume what I feel or don't feel.

Any loss during war is tragic. However, when the U.S. went to war during the World Wars, there was a very real threat against us. We were attacked at Pearl Harbor, etc.

When 9/11 happened, I was all in favor of U.S. troops entering Afghanistan to hunt down Osama bin Laden, and the Taliban. That is where our military should have stayed focused, and done a complete job. Entering Iraq was based on lies told to Congress by Bush and Cheney. The emphasis should have stayed in Afghanistan, and NONE of our troops should have ever been in Iraq, to die or come home wounded.

francis: "Stop watching fox"

That sounds an awful lot like "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain". Do you really believe in Communist supression of the truth, or are you just being willingly ignorant?

You have frequently defended the Ten Commandments on CN, yet your defense of the marxist Democrat party violates several of them. You put government ahead of God in one's charitable giving. You are comfortable with your fellows murdering unborn babies and commiting sodomy. You openly promote coveteousness in class envy (occupy Wall St., redistribution of wealth). How hypocritical of you!

Francis, now you are not speaking about the same thing you started with. Your "gimmie" list has nothing to do with personal giving. You are "forced" to take part of the pay taxes system. Most of the things you listed do not even come from the same funding.
When, and if, you pull a dollar out of your pocket and give it to the needy that is giving. Giving is not paying taxes! I said it before I hope you get it this time.
---Elder on 2/17/13


wow francis, your mind is dense. who gets food stamps? who gets free phones? who gets their rent paid? who helps some buy homes? the paving of roads and streets come from tax on our vehicles. anyone who drives a big truck pays whopping amounts of road tax. why do we send our tax to the enemy? why are we sending f-16's to the middle east to be used against Israel? your comments are lame to say the least. and just for your information, Obama was not elected by the people. if he had used popular vote, he would have lost by tons.

My statement was not about the costs of wars. Any war distrubs me and that was my buisness for 27 years.
My statement was about the fact that the government can't give anything for the private citizen. Giving has to be personal not out of taxes.
I was responding to a statement that was voiced like the person was a real giver because government programs were available to some.

Trish, why do you not feel sorry for those who died in WW2 or WW1? They also had a life and millions had families. Those wars were started by the sin of someone. In all wars people lie and cheat, kill, an push their power on others. The reason you have your rights is because someone died for those rights. The reason many around the world have rights is because many Americans died for their freedom. Do wars have to happen? No way, but we have had wars from the beginning of history because of someone's sin. No one is without sin, not even you are I. Losing a brother for our freedom and others has been happening since time begin.
---Mark_V. on 2/17/13


Trish: I understand that you feel the way was (at least likely) not based on what was found when we arrived there

But you are being a bit too modern......

Think about it:

When Julius Caesar invaded France, he only had to explain that (briefly) to the senate....

When William II, the first French King of England, invaded England, he only had to explain it to a few dozen people.

The first person to have to get the approval of the people for a nationalistic project that I can find was, unfortunately..... Hitler
---James on 2/16/13


Elder, you know I love and respect you. However, I'm upset about the billions of dollars, and thousands of American lives that were "spent" during a war that was based on a lie.
---Trish on 2/16/13


Liberalism refers to the belief that government can provide useful tools and resources to citizens. Liberal policymaking is also guided by a vision of social justice.


Conservative thinking wishes to tinker with institutions and society as little as possible, and do not see government as a resource for citizens. Maintaining perceived traditions, both political and cultural, are often a focal point.

If I had control over the money, I wouldn't send it the enemy and neither would I send f-16's either. the only one that would send a dime to is Israel. it may be your money but you don't get to spend a dime of it.

Snopes is the same website that said Obama did not apologize for America to other countries, simply because he didn't actually say the words "I'm sorry". Of course we know that he actually did do this because we have audio and video footage of these apology speeches. We also know that there is more than one way to same something and that an apology doesn't have to contain those two words.

---Elder on 2/16/13


Francis, the terms "liberal" and "conservative" refer to the constitution. Conservatives are called conservative because they want a conservative translation and adherence to the constitution. Liberals want a liberal adherence to the constitution. It has nothing to do with money. And your reference to "our" money is a very socialistic and communistic view.

Francis, First, I have neither the time nor space to explain to you the various aspects of the American culture. If you don't know anything about your own culture that you live in then I'm afraid this question is a little over your head. Secondly, I wasn't referring solely to America's culture, YOU were the one who said that. I was talking about the world culture since social media has become a major phenomenon among all walks of life. Thirdly, my questions were about social media's effects on our lifestyles and the way people (everywhere) interact with each other. They were not meant as an open invitation to bash America's culture. Only an American hater like you would try to high-jack a non-political thread to bash America.

shira4368 seems to be saying that American culture includes act of great generosity.

Agreed?

But then all this giving is in large part the doing of liberals, through the various U.N. agencies, and directly

The Liberals are also the ones responsible for WIC program, medicare, medicaid, government subsidized housing,habitat for humanity, unemployment benefits, food stamps, social security and a host of other liberal programs.

In this case if generosity is part of American culture, then liberal are the fabrics and backbone of american culture

The reason why we are called liberals is primarily because of our generous spending on social programs to help the less fortunate without judgment

Heard a great line in a message over the weekend and it was being applied to our relationship with God but it also can be applied to our relalationship with other people. The line is:

Velocity is the enemy of Intimacy

Spending time online through social media is velocity. Spending time with a person face-to-face is intimacy.
---Mark_Eaton on 2/13/13


Yes, Jed, we need to be involved with real people in our lives where we are, not just escaping to find somebody on the Internet to accept us. "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" (in Matthew 5:46)

Ones who do not know how to love can be desperate. So they look "elsewhere". But our character is our "filter" which decides, a lot, with whom we can connect or if we can.

But love is by faith > "faith working through love" (Galatians 5:6), so we do not have to see someone to have love > 1 Peter 1:8 > "whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,"
---willie_c: on 2/13/13


Jed, I will put social media in a similar category as money. If you use it well it is a great tool, use it bad it is harmful. Reconnect with friends, to keep up with distant friends etc. If you use social media to replace your friends and not have personal one on one community then it is bad. So your answers 1) yes, debate has become attack vs attack (I am guilty also) compared to my opinion vs your opinion and remaining respectful 2) yes, it limites true community 3) No, you cannot do life alone and it is a good way to meet people
---Scott1 on 2/11/13


Christan, your point is good. In each age, one method is used to pull us away from God, and to damage us.

But the point of social media is that it,like other past methods, will still damage us.

My main concern is that it is passed off (spending all night 'chatting on facebook') as 'socialising) as 'being friendly. The danger is that in fact people are being friendly with people they have never met, and most likely never will meet

But you are right, each age has its own danger.

But also, each age has a tendency not to realise its own danger

Jed, please do not fool yourself. Believe that the fall of man is the main cause of what's wrong with mankind. Since the beginning of time, mankind have engaged in all kinds of evil and wickedness before God. Did they have social media then?

Before 1980, computers were only used by large organizations to keep records and by hobbyists to play games ("Pacman", Tetris, etc.) and writers could use them instead of typewriters IF they had word processor software, but there was no such thing as a "desktop computer".

When computers began to be sold in stores for the consumer, there were teams of scientists that PROTESTED against computers because they could become a "hindrance" to social interaction (but you can't stop what we CALL "progress").

It is our OVERdependence on "social media" and electronic communication that has become a hindrance to a healthy, productive lifestyle (NOW is when we NEED to understand the "INNER MAN" and the "Spirit of LIFE"...thanks be to God for this understanding).

We are HUMAN BEINGS (living, breathing, souls), we are not TEXT, we are not "rules". We are not 'ITEMS'/soldier puppets, or 'units of proper conduct/behavior', we are living, breathing human beings meant to be reconnected to our creator in a very personal and idiosyncratic way (with NO HINDRANCE...of course I sound like a madman).

"Paul, you are mad...".

God wants His "Spirit of life" to be present inside the "INNER MAN" (our innermost character/demeanor). The inner man is The Lord's Temple,....it is what makes us human (the living breathing soul has a 'human consciousness').

Humanity always misunderstood God's TRUTH. God wants human beings to be truly "HUMAN" (idiosyncratically SELF-AWARE, 'NATURAL MAN' like Leonardo Da Vinci's VETRUVIAN MAN/Universal Man)

The "BEAST" seeks to destroy God's Temple. All of our lives, weve ALLOWED TEXT to replace The Lord's Spirit of life (by becoming a "FOLLOWER"...follow the leader pride) and letting a 'bookbeast' (the flesh) be where it "ought not to be".

If you really think they're unhealthy, then you shouldn't even be here, avoiding this (and all similar sites) like the plague.

They are like anything else. They are not bad in themselves, but can be used in a wrong and unhelpful manner. Glory to Jesus Christ!
