Pray For President Trump
  
Haz27:

If "Obviously Jesus", why advocate ELIMINATION of your enemies, the left?

Calling yourself socialist, Christian, etc. doesn't make you one. Communist "Democratic republic of" is propaganda - they aren't democratic at all.

Early Christians kept possessions in common - ULTIMATE left.

I quote scripture frequently.

Many Republicans ADMITTED deliberately duplicitous policies (e.g. voter registration).

Republicans turned to new strategies to get ANY vote, and seducing the Christian Right was how they regained power after the 1960s.


john9346: YOU intimated lies were the exclusive domain of the left, which is hypocritical, as Trump lies more than all of them.


What Is The Judgement
  
Jerry6593:

Jesus said he would return to judge the living and the dead. The Bible says his coming will be visible by all, as lightining from the east to the west - i.e. sudden, dramatic, and visible by all. This contrasts with the false SDA teaching of "investigative judgment", where Jesus "came back" in 1844, but because nobody saw him do so, it's rationalized that he's busy in heaven, taking his time, reading through lots of books. I wonder how this can ever end, because while he's busy reading all the old books, new ones are continuously being written. If it takes him ANY appreciable time to read them, this process can NEVER end (i.e. look up Zeon's paradox, and Achilles and the Tortoise).

Jerry6593:

Both Ecc and Lk are stated "factually". We use common sense to distinguish literal from metaphoric in all writings. Heaven contains people and clothes and buildings, even though none of those are ACTUALLY physical.


kathr4453:

Scripture clearly says "sons of God" procreated with human women. Interpret that how you will. Holy Spirit didn't have sperm either, yet Mary became pregnant. For Samuel's mantle, see above.

God hears everyone, even sinners, and trees that fall in the woods (otherwise, he wouldn't be omniscient). It's his choice whether to act on what he hears.

Everything that happens, God MUST have allowed, for if he forbade it, it couldn't have happened!


Pray For President Trump
  
Haz27:

Forget ancient history before 1960. Recent voter registration laws: illegal voters are in the tens to hundreds, while legitimate voters disenfranchised by such laws are in the thousands. These laws' ACTUAL purpose is to take swing districts from mostly poor brown Democrats and give them to rich white Republicans.

The Left are evil? AHCA will deprive TENS OF MILLIONS with pre-existing conditions (cancer, asthma, diabetes) of health care, many of which KILL without treatment. Will they say, "Hitler killed millions, and Trump tens of millions"?

"drained of the evil Left"?! Jesus said "Love your enemy". Hitler said "Exterminate your enemy". Who do YOU follow?

kathr4453:

Samuel's image was wearing a mantle. So what? The dead in heaven wear white robes, and they don't have bodies either. In any case, 1 Samuel 28 doesn't say an angel in Samuel's form spoke or was seen. It doesn't say a demon in Samuel's form spoke or was seen. It doesn't say the witch lied. It doesn't say Saul was deceived. It said one thing over and over again: "Samuel was", "Samuel said". Why do people need to keep adding words and explanations to rationalize that something written in plain black and white didn't actually happen?

Haz27:

Before you call anyone an idiot (whether you feign gentility by using ** in place of two letters or not), remember Matthew 5:22: ... but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

I say this for your benefit, not mine.

I am also neither totalitarian nor Communist. Remember also "Thou shalt not bear false witness".


john9346:

I know what I wrote, and I couldn't find a SINGLE quote in those blogs where I said Democrats were INFALLIBLE. I have never said that, because I don't believe it. Quote my EXACT words and show where (blog+date). I bet you can't find any. I couldn't. (The 3rd blog I could only find via Google search).


Pray For President Trump
  
Haz27:

"All X are Y" is very simplistic black-and-white thinking. Reality is more nuanced.

Even "left vs. right" is one-dimensional. Socio/economic views are more complex. Consider the Political Compass model. Economic are left/right, social is top/bottom (i.e. Authoritarian vs. Libertarian). Socialists (Sanders) and communists (Stalin) are top left. Conservatives (Reagan+Thatcher) and fascists (Hitler) are top right. Gandhi is bottom left. Tea Party (Ayn Rand) is bottom right.

Lies come from ANYONE self-serving. Trump spouts them all the time. (No politician in HISTORY has been abused more? Really?!)

kathr4453:

They can't - which is why the witch was so susprised. God allowed, so Samuel could condemnation Saul, for doing the forbidden AND hypocrisy (i.e. killing all mediums, but then using one).


Samuelbb7:

Why would Jesus use a bad theological model (e.g. dead being conscious and acting) in a parable? He never talked about reincarnation, polytheism, or any other bad ones.

Lazarus and the rich man had no bodies, but that was not the point - they were dead YET conscious, contradicting Ecclesiastes - *IF* you insist on taking things literally.

Where in the Bible is the words immortal soul?

1 Cor 15:16-18, apparently - otherwise, the warning is meaningless.


Pray For President Trump
  
Haz27:

Southern Democrats (dixiecrats) were racists up until the 1960s. When Democrats embraced civil rights, dixiecrats quit en masse and became Republicans - the Republican party we know today.

The Party of Lincoln championed racial freedom and Democrats created KKK - 150+ years ago. Today the roles are reversed. KKK are staunch Republicans, and Republicans are the ones who consistenly push laws that largely harm or disenfranchise people based on race.

Instead of draining the swamp, Trump is making alligators run it.


Samuelbb7:

Exactly. Trump lies CONSTANTLY. Recently: "No politician in history has been treated worse than me".
Except Lincoln, 2 Kennedys, MLK, Gandhi, Aquino, Mandela, ...


Jesus Is Coming Back On A Cloud
  
Suzie: That suggests an amusing idea: Cyber-Jesus. (Then again, this thread was created 9 years ago, and nobody has commented on it for 6 years. Most of the people involved aren't even on this site anymore, and the ones that are, likely aren't paying attention.)

Samuelbb7:

If somebody calls you in the middle of the night, you can ignore it, or answer it in an annoyed tone. It's your choice. Samuel CHOSE to respond to the Saul.


Jerry6593:

Your ignorance of the Bible knows no bounds!

How about yours? They are clearly different:

Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit ...
1 Thessalonians 5:23: ... your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless...
Revelation 16:3: ... and every living soul died in the sea.

If you insist on taking Ecc 9:5,6 literally, you must also say Jesus was wrong in The Rich Man and Lazarus.


Do Ghosts Exist
  
bren:

Many churches teach this, but the Bible doesn't say contracting spirits if forbidden BECAUSE they're actually demons. When the Witch of Endor pretended to conjure up Samuel, she was genuinely surprised (and terrified) when the real Samuel actually showed up. (Mediums use cheap parlor tricks to fake supernatural manifestations, not expecting real ones.)


Jerry6593:

Spirits aren't put into bodies to create souls. They are two totally different things.

1 Sa 28:13: "The woman said... 'I saw'" (fallible woman speaking)
1 Sa 28:15: "Samuel said". Not "the image perceived as Samuel said". Not "the spirit pretending to be Samuel said". (Infallible author of 1 Sa speaking).

john9346:

No. Quote EXACT WORDS where I claim Democrats are **INFALLIBLE** (i.e. incapable of error) I have NEVER said that.

No. Vitriol (lessening chances) is wrong. Giving NO CHANCE WHATSOEVER is even more wrong.

We should trust what James Clapper said over what FBI+CIA said AFTER he resigned?

Policing INTERNATIONAL LAW is the Hague's problem, NOT America's. American military involvement frequently violates international law, but we don't care.

Hillary sold uranium? Remember George W. Bush and yellow cake?

Again, legal deals with a country may be dubious, but unconstitutional ones are ACTUALLY illegal. Learn the difference.


Do Ghosts Exist
  
Jerry6593:

We are not talking about SOULS. We are talking about SPIRITS. The Bible distinguishes uses differennt words for these. The Bible clearly says souls die. By conflating these two concepts, you erroneously create a straw man, which you then demolish.

The Bible doesn't say the Witch of Endor saw a demon impersonating Samuel. It says she saw Samuel. Period. You are reading between the lines to justify your own unbiblical interpretation. The conjuration was improper (i.e. one is never supposed to conjure up the dead), and it violated his rest. He exercised his office of prophet one last time, and predicted dire consequences for Saul, which did, indeed, come to pass.


Spank 14 Year Old Niece
  
A 14-year-old is old enough to be reasoned with rationally, without resorting to spanking. She should be told that unauthorized access to computers is a federal crime punished by many years in jail, and that by rights, you ought to turn her over to the police, but you're willing to let it go this time if she voluntarily agrees to being grounded from using the internet for a period (e.g. one week), or some other suitably punishment which similarly inconveniences her to teach her a lesson. Also say that the next time, you won't be as lenient.

Also, there is no way she should even be able to access other people's emails, if they are properly password protected. As the Scots say, "fool me twice, shame on ME".

john9346:

Show ONE post where I claimed Democrats were INFALLIBLE.

Vitiol reduces chances. Denying reduces them to ZERO - worse.

FBI+CIA claimed evidence of Russia collusion.

World court could try Obama for breaking international law - it's THEIR jurisdiction. They didn't.

Taking money from Russia is just shady. Colluding with Russia to INTERFERE with election is a CRIME.

Obama waited until AFTER leaving office, due to Emoluments clause. Trump didn't because he doesn't care about constitution.


Jerry6593:

I live here.

Hillary puts minor intelligence where it MIGHT accidentally be hacked. JAIL HER! Trump DELIBERATELY hands VERY sensitive info to Russia. No problem!

Jerry6593:

You wrote: Only those who believe the pagan myth of spooks within us will fall for the Satanic deceptions of spiritualism.

Could you please clarify just WHICH beliefs comprise "the Satanic deceptions of spiritualism"?

If it's the idea that spirits can assume human form, Jesus had plenty of opportunity to debunk that after his resurrection, but instead demonstrated that he was NOT a spirit, rather than that spirits don't exist.

The Witch of Endor was unpleasantly shocked when Samuel's spirit spoke to her.

The Bible tells us that we are NOT to seek out dead spirits to communicate with them (i.e. necromancy). It's not necessary to command people to do that which is already impossible.

john9346:

I never said the Democrats did no wrong. I never said any party was infallible. There is a difference between merely being fallible, and treason and/or violating the constitution. The constitution says what the senate's duty is, and the Republican senators refused to do it for over a year. Trump conspiring with Russia to steal the election IS treason (and both FBI and CIA believe it happened). They should be allowed to investigate it. If true, Trump should be removed. If not, he will be exonerated.

If Obama violated international law, that's a matter for the world court to prosecute. It's THEIR jurisdiction. Did they? Trump violating US law *IS* a matter for US to investigate and prosecute.

john9346:

So what? It didn't rise to the point of becoming actionable by SCOTUS.

In the debates, Trump said one thing, and less than an hour oater, the exact opposite. He was pro-choice. Now. pro-life. He hated the Electoral College, but without it, he wouldn't be president. He said Mexico would pay for the wall. Now, we will. It goes on and on.

How is vitriol (during which 2 of 3 were CONFIRMED) **WORSE** than NO CHANCE AT ALL?!

Thomas being black?! His accuser was Anita Hill - a BLACK WOMAN.

Obama interfering with Israel is a concern for Israel. Putin interfering here is a concern for **US**.

From Wikipedia: On Dec. 9 CIA said Russia assisted Trump. In March 2017, FBI is investigating.

john9346:

Supreme Court commented, but did not RULE against it.

Given how many things Trump has said and later flip-flopped on, sometimes on the same day, NOTHING is "non-negotiable" for the "Art of the Deal" guy.

For the fourth time. Democrats RESISTED Republican nominees. Republicans KILLED Democratic nominee's chances. Voting "no" is advise and consent. Not voting is NOT. See the difference?

ALL US intelligence agencies agree there is strong evidence for Russian collusion. So why not ALLOW them to investigate to make sure? Vigorously opposing investigation is a tactic used by the guilty.

Why did Trump not remove Comey UNTIL he investigated Trump? Clinton is just an EXCUSE.
