Since when does Tom Perez define the Democratic party?

Conservatives constantly whine about universities being hotbeds of extreme left-wing thought.

The democratic process doesn't require education, merely convincing a bunch of people to agree with you. It's EASIER to convince people who lack critical thinking skills, because they follow blindly like sheep.

He promised build AND pay, and even though pay was impossible, his followers voted for him anyway. And build? Good luck building a wall down the middle of the Rio Grande.


Do Ghosts Exist
  
micha9344:

You wrote: Jesus never told His disciples that he wasn't a ghost, so who is putting words into Jesus' mouth?

Luke 24:39
Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Some translations use "ghost" rather than "spirit".

You wrote: Cluny, why did you judge the "Scriptures." in light of the Church Fathers instead of the other way around??

He didn't say he judged the scriptures in light of the Church Fathers. He said he judged the Baptist and Protestants church in light of the Bible.

You wrote: As for the use of "church," most christians believe that the churches mentioned at the beginning of Revelation are denominations.

I have never heard this theory. Can you point out anyone specific who actually teaches this? One that I HAVE heard frequently is that each church is a metaphor for particular sub-group of the Body of Christ. For example, the church of Laodicea is those Christians who are wishy-washy (i.e. neither hot nor cold).

Yes. Right up to the 1960s, when the policies of both parties switched. NOW, Democrats are pro-rights, and Republicans are anti-rights. Look at the voting record for the past 50 years.

The Democrat Leaders can't stand for it's Constituents to THINK, ACT and LIVE FREE!

Don't think?! Educated people and professionals are much more likely to be Democrat than Republican. Many Trump voters are so uneducated about basic political issues that they had no clue that ACA (that they loved) was the same as Obamacare (that they hated). They couldn't see how economically impossible Trump's plan to force Mexico to build the wall was. Trump himself said he had no idea how difficult the job of President was (well DUH!).

You wrote: Jesus TOLD the Disciples to offer up His Body and Blood ALWAYS until He returns.

No, he didn't say that. He said, "Do this in memory of me". He did not say what "this" is - you are just inferring it.


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
barb:

You wrote: Does anyone understand that the covenant that God made with His people and sealed with an oath was the ten commandments?

What about the other 603 commandments from the Law of Moses? Were they not also part of the same covenant? If they were, why do the same Christians who insist on obeying the Ten Commandments feel free to ignore many parts of the Law of Moses? If they weren't, why did the Jews feel obliged to obey them, and why did none of the old testament prophets say anything against them?

You wrote: What ones call a ghost can be an evil spirit pretending to be a dead human.

While this MAY be the case, it is not NECESSARILY the case. When Saul got the Witch of Endor to conjure up Samuel, two interesting happened. First, she was frightened, because he actually appeared. (Presumably, she was a charalatan who just pretended to summon up the dead, and was not expecting one to actually show up. Compare Whoopie Goldberg's role in "Ghost".) Second, it was actually Samuel who came, not some other spirit pretending to be Samuel. He was still exercising his office of prophet, condemning Saul, and predicting his punishment.

You wrote: I notice that not a single response addresses the blog question, but rather most continue to espouse the same lawless drivel. What are you afraid of?

Perhaps nobody is answering that, because it's a trick question. If someone says "my denomination teaches that", you could say, "why do you believe differently from most Christians?", and if someone says "no denomination teaches that", you could say, "why do you believe differently even from your own denomination?". It's a lose-lose situation.


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
john9346:

You wrote: But the Ten Commandments and the Dietary Restrictions are all part of the Mosaic Law

Yes. However, most of the people here who are so insistent on obeying the Ten Commandments by saying we are still bound by God's Law (especially the SDAs who use this view to justify the idea that we are obliged to keep the Saturday sabbath) say we're NOT bound by the other Mosaic laws. They say some have been fulfilled by Christ's sacrifice, but can't justify others, like no blending fabrics, separating women during their time of the month, etc.

Which parts of the Mosaic law do YOU think we are still obliged to keep?

You wrote: Therefore because God is a person he is personal which means he is able to communicate with us how he chooses...

Yes, that is true. However, that says nothing about how WE are supposed to "rightly divide the word of truth". It says WE have to do it. It does not say GOD has to do it or us. What means do WE use to divide it?

barb:

You wrote: Josef, the words you quoted were written by Paul and do not reflect the Word of God.

Does this mean that you believe that the writings of Paul are not the Word of God, so should therefore be excluded from the Bible? Which books of the Bible do you actually believe should be included in it?


Do Ghosts Exist
  
Jerry6593:

You wrote: So who ya gonna believe Axey, God or Satan?

That is a false dilemma. It would be apt if Satan said "Ghosts exist" and God said "Ghosts do not exist", but nowhere does the Bible say either of them said either of those things, so it's not relevant here.

You wrote: I pointed to God because God exist and therefore truth is knowable

The fact that God exists may mean truth is knowable by God, but does not at all imply that it is knowable by US.

Again, I ask HOW you "rightly divide the word of truth", and if two people divide it differently, how can you tell which one of them is dividing it "rightly"?


Do Ghosts Exist
  
After his resurrection, Jesus told his disciples that had flesh and bone, not like a ghost/spirit. The very fact that he had to say this at all meant that they must have believed he WAS a ghost (and that, because there must have already been a cultural belief that such things exist). Also, Jesus COULD have said "I'm not a ghost, because there is no such a thing as a ghost", but he didn't do that, and instead said "I have flesh and bones, unlike a ghost".

You wrote: God's word is NOT fluid.

No, but God's Word was written in Hebrew and Greek, while WE read it in English translations, and the meanings of English words ARE fluid.

English "church" is used to translate Greek "ekklesia" to mean both the Body of Christ, and also specific congregations. However English "church" can also mean "denomination" or "building", and when people use it in those contexts, they aren't quoting the Word of God, so fluidity of the Word of God is not even an issue in such contexts.

Perhaps you accidentally clicked the "Post a New Blog" button instead of "Reply to this Blog" button? I've done that a few times, but I noticed that the data entry form looked unfamiliar (as I have never started a new blog here), so I backed out of it.

I was referring to Jerry's pernicious habit of name-calling (i.e. calling Democrats "demoncrats", and me "Weak Hatchet"). I had never heard of Tucker Carlson, which is why I never watched him. I rarely watch TV evangelists because it seems to me that most of them to be vapid and self-serving (although there are exceptions), so I rarely go out of my way to watch new ones I hadn't seen before.

Strom Thurmond didn't become a Republican because he repented, but because racists were predominantly Dixiecrats before the 1960s, and switched to Republicans afterwards.


Faith For Food
  
Nicole_Lacey:

You quoted Rev. 22:10-12: "Look, I am coming soon!..."

All the translations I am familiar with say, "Behold, I come quickly!..."

Jesus said his coming would be like a lightning flash visible from one side of the sky to another. This is very quick (a fraction of a second), but not soon, as it's 2000+ years later.


Do Ghosts Exist
  
Many people use the words "spirit" and "ghost" interchangeably. For example, "The Holy Spirit" is often called "The Holy Ghost". Dying is called "giving up the ghost".
