Is There Beauty Discrimination
Yes, Nicole >

"Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them." (Colossians 3:19)

To me, this means there is no excuse for any bitterness.

Coming Of Messiah Shofarot
After Jesus tells us about what will happen in the end times, He gives the meaning of it all > how we need to be ready. If we are ready . . . all Jesus means by this . . . then we are now blessed the way God wants and means by His end-time message.

I think "ready" mainly means to become perfected in God's love so "as He is, so are we in this world." (in 1 John 4:17)

So, in case we are mainly giving our attention to judging teachers . . . this can decoy us from how we need to become ready.

Blogs Problems
Moderator, I reported that this site does not record a semi-colon as a semi-colon, but it always has printed a comma. Let me now test if this still happens, using Colossians 3:15 which has a semi-colon before "and be thankful." >

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

In my writing box, I wrote a semi-colon before "and be thankful."

Knee During National Anthem
To me, Nicole, ones mean to object to the unjust killing of blacks by police officers. So, if they claim to be objecting to unjust police actions, then it is clear they are not anti-military or anti-police. But they are protesting about what wrong people are doing while pretending to be police officers.

Of course, each person can speak for oneself about what he or she means or understands.

By the way, in the United States we have about a million police officers. We have not had a million murders by police, this year. Also, how many officers have risked their own lives, just today, to protect someone's mother or father or children or brother or sister or grandparents or grandchildren?

Is DACA Legal
Wasn't there a Republican majority in Congress, who could have challenged President Obama's DACA right when he started it? If it was un-Constitutional, why didn't they stop it, then?

May be Republicans have business interests which have depended on illegals. If only legal Americans work, wages will be higher and costs will go up, for a thing or two.

We might be paying twice as much for food. Children will be accounted for, and will be payed for, for school. And now it seems people already can't afford to keep schools going right.

So, what's the plan for this, if anything?

Accounting Of Your Taxes
While America is not effectively defending her unborn citizens, possibly her leaders so lacking in character also will not be able to effectively take care her other people, never mind know how to deal with caring for other countries while she doesn't have the character to love and take care of her own unborn.

First ones need to have the character to love and care for all citizens, born and unborn. If leaders do not know how to love the born and unborn, Jesus says, "without Me you can do nothing" (in John 15:5).

So, while we are not requiring an account for how our unborn are being taken care of, don't expect to get much from financial accounting.

America's Historical Monuments
There were colonial people who felt it was ok to kill the sons of British mommies and daddies. And not all colonials believed in that. So, if it is ok to kill people, for the sake of what you want, I suppose taking down a statue is not much, in comparison with killing people.

But it would be a waste of my time.

"No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier." (2 Timothy 2:4)

It is possible that neither way is right, if wrong people have their agenda, for and against the statues. Both sides of a fight might not be right (c:

Saturday Is Day To Worship
I read, as I understand it, that a narcissist piggy-backs on people and things which have power and praise, so the narcissist can have credibility and feel like somebody. So, you can be his example of how we become really someone by living in God's love. Anything less, at best, can get praise and control of people.

Rest in Jesus. We need to get rid of all the nonsense which gets us into less.

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation" (in Philippians 2:14-16)

Tearing Down Statues
But, Nicole, were there not black men who helped with the dirty work of killing and kidnapping Africans for slavery? Or is my history wrong? If that is true, then ones could say it is wrong to use the names Black and African, since these are the names of those who did the actual slave raiding.

Also, we might need to eliminate the names of Muslim and Portuguese and British, since these name people who felt they were somehow superior so they could kidnap and murder black people, for their money making.

The root includes the love of money and how in our conceit we can feel we are better than others. But Jesus, so superior, is not conceited, but left Heaven itself in order to reach us and share with us (c:

What Is The Curse Of Ham
Jesus on the cross took our curse upon Himself. So, any curses of God against us have been intercepted by Jesus on the cross (c: So, it does not matter who was cursed and how, if we have trusted in Jesus > "old things have passed away" (in 2 Corinthians 5:17) > all our former identities are gone >

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

Plus, Jesus says the one who is blessed is the one who is servant of all (c:

Who's The Elect
"I know I am elect if God is changing me to become more like Jesus."

"Is God changing you? How do you know this?

"How can you be certain that's it not simply your own efforts at self-improvement,"

This is a good issue (c: We need to pray and make sure with God, that He is making sure He is changing us to be more and more like Jesus. His love effects our nature in His way which our own self effort can not do.

Hebrews 12:4-11 shows me how we need to keep seeking our Father to succeed in His real correction in us (c:

Who's The Elect
According to what I have found publicly presented about Calvinism, I am not a Calvinist, Cluny. But I do believe in predestination, especially how a child of God is destined to be conformed to the image of Jesus > Romans 8:29.

So, I know I am elect if God is changing me to become more like Jesus. And 1 John 4:17 fits with this >

"Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4:17)

Our Apostle John says God is doing this in us . . . "in this world".
