How To Respond To Terrorists
Make sure you're not distracted from things that need your attention.

There are countries in which it is legal to kill unborn people. Yet, people in these nations can act so upset if a person does a terrorist thing . . . while many more unborn are being killed, than some one terrorist attack kills, and they give so little attention to this.

Then ones get distracted with hunting down the terrorists, while not effectively caring for and defending their own unborn citizens. This helps to keep their attention away from seeking the kind of character correction which they themselves so need from God, including so they can find out how to love.

They do not know how to love their unborn, for one thing.

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?

17 Old Son Blocks Me
He is old enough to make young adult decisions, and he will become older. And do you know the real reason why?

I don't know if this applies to you, Mimi, but it looks to me like a number of people do not first make sure with God about whom we marry.

So, if we just choose whom we want to use . . . the bait you use can be what chooses the fish you catch. And dead fish will smell after a while, if you start with one who does not have the character to love the way the Bible says to relate in love.

Ephesians 5:21

Ephesians 4:31-5:2

Philippians 2:13-16

And there is plenty more, to invest in learning and doing (c:

Start now, if you haven't, with Jesus, and discover the good God has for us (c:

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.

Prayer For Our Parish
That we become conformed to the image of Jesus, while learning how to love with one another and have compassion and good example for ones who need Christ.

And I need to seek our Heavenly Father for the correction which His word guarantees to us who are His children > Hebrews 12:4-11.

About not being fashionable > our Apostle Paul does say he became "all things to all men" so he could save some > 1 Corinthians 9:19-23. So, I see, Cluny, how Paul would relate with people at their level, not self-righteously make himself look and act totally different > 2 Corinthians 10:12.

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".

Commandments From Jesus
If the commands to Moses are Law, what Jesus means is love.
