Richa you are correct by disagreeing with me about my statement believing that the Government does EVERYTHING wrong.

The Military is one thing they are good at when the right person is in charge.

I was a Military Brat.
Living on Post were my best childhood years, 70's and 80's. Never a race issue at all for me. Never.
Everyone was equal (Except for rank, but that's different)

Sorry as well.
Peace.

I have the right to express how I feel about the Government.
I agree any Muslim should be allowed into this Country. I only wish a private agency should handle who are the terrorist and who isn't....
(Nicole Lacey)

First, I am not FBI. And I am not upset. I re-read your post and saw the ellipsis which means that you cut something out for the sake of brevity.

I understand how you feel about the US government. Even though I do not share your views as per the government getting everything wrong, you have the right to say it. Forgive me for flaming.

Richa, I copied your words. I didn't mis quote you.

I said that any time the Government gets involved things are worst.
Please copy my words misquoting you.

If you would have said, the FBI needs to handle anything I would still state it is scary.

Only if you are a FBI agent should you be upset with me.

I have the right to express how I feel about the Government.
The Government is in charge of the controlling Terrorist and it isn't going well.

I agree any Muslim should be allowed into this Country. I only wish a private agency should handle who are the terrorist and who isn't. Because the Government is lousy.

So unless are you are a FBI agent, you should not be upset.

NOOOOO, you can't ADD to Jesus' Words.

Isa_45:25 ... all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

Jer_23:3 I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries
Jer_31:1... I be the God of all the families of Israel, they shall be my people.
Rom_11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,...

Nichole Lacey misquoted me, " Muslims should be just as welcome into our country as any other religion...All we can do is pray that the FBI, etc. know what they are doing."--richa8957 on 5/6/15

Nichole, please don't quote me out of context. I said that any Muslim should be welcome, but that terrorists are the job of the FBI, etc.

All ("ethnos") nations. That the "Lost Sheep" of Israel are scattered amongst.--Trav on 5/15/15

NOOOOO, you can't ADD to Jesus' Words. As you have shown Jesus knows the difference between House of Israel and Nations.

Matthew 15:27 "Yes, Lord, yes even the dogs (us) eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table. (Jesus is master to EVERYONE).

Matt 21:43 There I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a NATION producing the fruits of it.

Matt 24:14 And this GOSPEL of the kingdom will be preached throughout THE WHOLE WORLD, as a testimony to ALL NATIONS, and then the end will come.

Again, what part of ALL do you not UNDERSTAND?

WHAT PART OF 'ALL' DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/14/15

Understood the part you don't...Yet. Or deny.

All ("ethnos") nations. That the "Lost Sheep" of Israel are scattered amongst.
Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mat 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Psa_130:8 he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Gal_4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Mat_25:32 before him shall be gathered all nations: he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

Rita you are right. Thank God in 2010, Texas changed the history books to be balance and to tell the CORRECT history of Christianity in America.
Texas has most of the public kids in America, so it's text books is the leading books for all of America.

But, those with children need to be pro-active in teaching them our great Country's history. The bad, ugly and the GOOD.

I am black and proud of America. Those who claim they hate America, oddly are not trying to go anywhere.

Every Country has a bad history.
But, we are still the #1 Country everyone is trying to be a citizen legally or illegally.

Trav
We must always study the context of a passage.
---Samuelbb7 on 5/15/15

Well said. Context is "my people" in 354 scriptures never changes.
Exo_8:23 a division between my people and thy people:
2Sa_7:10 will appoint a place for my people Israel..
Isa_3:12 my people,...women rule over them.
Amo_7:15...prophesy unto my people Israel.
Mic_6:3 O my people,...
Zec_8:7...I will save my people...
Zec_13:9 : I will say, It is my people:...
Mat_2:6...rule my people Israel.
Rom_9:25 ..also in Osee, I will call them my people,..
Rev_18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
---Trav on 5/15/15


Right at this point in time a member of my family is one of just two children being withdrawn from R.E. classes when they are discussing faiths other than Christianity. The discussing is not the problem, it is the activities which go with it.

One particular teacher (not their class teacher) has told these two small children that their parents should not have asked for them to not take part. This teacher was very wrong in saying that (no courage to say it to parents it seems) and has left us wonderful just 'what' she is. We have to be very wary of any indoctrination which might be creeping into our schools now.
---Rita_H on 5/15/15




Thank you nicole good point.

Trav The Passage in Exodus is referring to the People of Egypt at that time. We must always study the context of a passage.

Jesus died for all people of the world. But they must be Born Again to enter into the Covenant. We must become children of Abraham to be saved. So you are not correctly understanding the relationship. All are out of Covenant until they come to Jesus.

On Christ the Rock I stand.
---Samuelbb7 on 5/15/15


Samuelbb7 With all respect for your good intentions there are some things that may not be as great as they first appear. I think it strange that any parent would think it good for a school person to share the Bible with her child. It seems that mother may have been relieved you did it because she wasn't free at home to. If anyone in School taught my child any kind of religion I and my husband would be right in the middle of them reminding them of their place. Further more it is against the law to teach Bible in school and we would have reported them. God must lead us with whom we should share. It is wrong to just jump into something because we want to,we must use Spiritual wisdom. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 5/14/15


Trav,

Matthew 28
Jesus said "Go to ALL NATIONS..."

Plus, Islam didn't exist. Mohammed came 600 years later.

So, saying going to the house of Islam would be odd to the Apostles.
So Jesus said, all Nations to cover any confusion from those like you.

On judgement day you can't give Jesus that lame excuse.

Allow me to tell you His response to you:

WHAT PART OF 'ALL' DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/14/15


...But then they are not following GOD. Jesus dies for all people.
---Samuelbb7 on 5/14/15

I see you, not following GOD, even as a possible sheep. Even if not who will be eaten in your own ignorance of scripture and reality.
Christ didn't say go to the Lost sheep of of the House of Islam.
GOD or Christ didn't say: New Covenant with the House of Israel "and" Judah, "and" house of Muslim/Islam/Muhammad/Ishamel etc, etc.
He said rather the opposite which you prefer changed to suit yourself.
Luk_12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay, but rather division:
Exo_8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
---Trav on 5/14/15


At the Public school where I used to work the Muslim children often came to me and asked me questions. One parent thanked me. Here in Houston we have many Muslims and they do not act as spoken here.

Not all Muslims are deluded by their leaders into the radical murders. Many are just people trying to live and raise their children in peace.

In the News there was a story of a Muslim women saving an Egyptian Christian girl from being raped and murdered.

Those who spread hatred do not remember these stories. Yes many Muslims are becoming Christians in areas of Freedom.

Those preachers who wish to spread hate do not want this known. But then they are not following GOD. Jesus dies for all people.

You have had personal experience with their mindset, believe you here, when you say it would be at a cost. It already is actually.
A cost which we get nothing in return.- Trav

I guess you didn't read Samuel's posting?

He said it best:

. No matter the cost we must tell them about Jesus. After all if they kill us. Then we wake up in heaven. I am listening to the song "I have never been this homesick before."---Samuelbb7 on 5/13/15

I have many friends who served in the ongoing wars. They are not very good advertisers for this ancient Genesis 16, people.

I'm not afraid of any of them. I sure am more relaxed without any of them being around me though.

Anyone who deludes himself about converting Muslims is foolish. They cut off the heads of their own people for having a Bible don't think for a moment you can convert them. They are told to convert Christians and if they won't change from Christian to Muslim kill them. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 5/13/15


Thank you Lacey for being willing to reach out.

Trav many of them have never heard the Gospel. The leaders in Muslim countries are afraid of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

They want to say that all Americans are godless sinners and hypocrites.

But a Christian who loves Jesus and loves them can bring them to know the LORD.

I have witnessed to Muslims and given them books. But I do not know if any have chosen to follow Jesus. But others I have read about have.

We do not need to fear our GOD is with us. No matter the cost we must tell them about Jesus. After all if they kill us. Then we wake up in heaven. I am listening to the song "I have never been this homesick before."

They are idiots. Reach them with what?
They've had 2,000 years to accept. Christ never instructed anyone to go to them.

Gal_4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Gal 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

Nicole Lacey and Kathr 4453 you are welcome to both of you This is such a touchy subject with a lot of people. I pray God gives us all wisdom about such things. I live in Texas and things could go bad here quickly. There are 110000 Muslims in Old Mexico and we know how people slip through the border to steal into the USA. There are several thousand in Texas and no one can say they are all peaceful and there won't be trouble. I pray that peace comes to this land and the World,we are told to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in the Bible perhaps if we do that the other lands we pray for will have peace.God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 5/11/15


Kathr 4453 things are on an even keel right now,Mom seems more settled. The family removed the room mates things so Mom isn't reminded of her so much. Thanks so much for your prayers. I still have to tell Mom sometime in the future her youngest sister died within a week of the room mate so I am waiting and praying God will lead me when. God Bless

We are NOT talking about their Theology, but THE MANNER they PLAN TO CONVERT EVERYONE.

Start a blog about their theology if you wish, and we can discuss it.
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/9/15


Thank you Darlene.....how are things?

Nicole, the MANNER in which they choose to convert people IS THEIR THEOLOGY. It's all about their THEOLOGY. And those who have become Christians, because of our THEOLOGY, are not violent, because our THEOLOGY does not teach violence.
Unfortunately in this situation, many being resettled here still carry with the their THEOLOGY. Their THEOLOGY even has them killing their own.
---kathr4453 on 5/10/15


Darlene thank you for being a peace maker as Christ demands of us. I should have kept my cool, but I don't like people making false statements about me. I was only giving my opinion about the man I dated 20 years ago.
From experience I know Muslims have a mindset to convert the world by force.
We don't need them to divide us.

I don't know Kathr, I don't have a clue why she is upset with me.

I don't wish to change your belief, I am only giving my reasoning for my belief as Peter said. I tried to explain the Christain faith to my boyfriend, but he was trying hard to get me to convert to Muslim. That's why he is my EX.
But, I am not asking Kathr to be a Catholic as I wish to remain a Catholic.

Peace to you Kathr.
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/10/15


Kathr 4453 I am blessed to know you for a good while. You've been a comfort to me in my time of need for prayer,I appreciate you very much. Nicole Lacey I haven't known you for long but I do care about your welfare. I want to share with you both, isn't it just like Satan to get us debating things which can cause a divide between us instead of our time on here binding us together in Jesus? We are in a very dangerous time for freedom in our Nation. Thirty UN vehicles were reported today in Texas heading for the area where the two terrorist were killed. Governor Abbot has called out the Texas Guard to stand ready to prevent any kind of military take over in Texas,such as Martial Law. Pray for God's protection of the Nation. God Bless

Darlene, our borders should be completely closed. We are suppose to be a free country but those who wish to destroy us are here already. They are well established. I don't trust them even tho some call them peaceful, they are a people of war.
---shira4368 on 5/10/15


Wise people would not pick up a snake that is poison and allow it to bite them. American Government has a history of helping other Nations and people and it comes back to bite them and there is no way to tell for sure if the Muslim refugees will have those who do it again or not. Sharia Law is as much a part of their religion as the rest and we cannot allow anyone to establish a law out side of the Federal and State Laws. The ones in Texas have already done that and it must be stopped and having more Muslims wont help do that. I believe in peace and love but they don't as a whole. Look at the Christians that have already been beheaded. God bless
---Darlene_1 on 5/9/15


Kathr, before you pick a fight with someone get your facts STRAIGHT!

This is America, Freedom of Religion. I have the right to be a Catholic as you have the right to be whatever you claim to confess.

Read the blog's title. It's talking about resettling Muslim Refugees and our feelings.
The concern is ABOUT some of them might BRING HAVOC here forcing others to be Muslim because they believe conversion is a must not an option.
Convert or DIE!
Not watching what is going on in the Middle East or Africa? Christians are DYING because they REFUSED to DENY JESUS!

We are NOT talking about their Theology, but THE MANNER they PLAN TO CONVERT EVERYONE.

Start a blog about their theology if you wish, and we can discuss it.

Samuel: "But the problem is defective Christians"

I disagree. There is nothing defective about those faithful Christians being slaughtered for their refusal to denounce Christ. Islam is of Satan, and to uphold it rather than Christianity is following the wrong leader.

Much like the RCC during the crusades, dark ages and before the reformation....right?

But to say there is ONE problem with their belief system, is......well, Nicole, let me ask you this,.....if it wasn't by force, then are you saying there is NO PROBLEM with their belief system? I guess because they also believe in Mary, you find yourself equally yoked here? Never mind that they deny the Deity of Christ...IS actually the ONLY ONE SERIOUS PROBLEM with their belief system....

---Samuelbb7 on 5/7/15


Look around at what they've done elsewhere. In U.K. some churches were told to silence their bells because Muslims didn't like them yet they applied to build mosques (then bigger ones) and call their own people to pray, regardless of complaints. The get their own way with ease in every aspect of life. They've infiltrated schools and changed the way religious education is taught here.

Muslims show no appreciation for having been given healthcare and financial benefits, found homes and jobs plus school places for their children. Their men would knock a woman over rather than step aside for her. They wish her to step aside for them. They intend to be superior to all others regardless of what has been done for them - I.M.O.

No, not afraid of Muslims, I dated one. I know Muslims who won't mind their own religious business.

Jesus said "Don't be afraid".

I believe many Muslims believe most Christians are afraid of Muslims.
But they are wrong!
Christians are the most kindest people on this earth. We don't need to force anyone to be a Christians. They ask and plead to become Christians.
Christians are the fastest growing religion. 50% of the world population.
