Judge Roy Moore Apologies
Does Judge Roy Moore deserve apologies?
---Jerry6593 on 12/9/17

I think there has been falsehood on both sides. No apology is necessary.

I think the best quote about all of this is: "the past is a foreign country, they do things differently there".

When we look through our sensibilities of today at events decades ago, we may see something we do not want to see.

Also, we must remember allegations are not facts. Facts require evidence that is deemed indisputable. An allegation is a claim without facts.

These women have no facts just allegations. The yearbook is also not a fact unless it can be proved by tests and handwriting analysis that Moore definitely signed it.

Bring Glory To God
and am appalled. You people... Are you bringing glory to God...or are you bringing glory to yourselves?
---Steveng on 12/10/17

I understand what you are attempting to do, Steven.

But how you are doing it is unwise, tactless, and combative.

Whenever you accuse someone you immediately put them on the defensive.

The tactful approach is to "identify" with your target audience.

Look at my synopsis of your blog question. You actually said "you people", the absolute worst thing you could say to offend and alienate people.

If you had said, " we are biting each others heads off. Are we bringing God glory or ourselves" it would be have received better.

Also, one must remember purgatory didn't become teaching by the RCC...To be clear the ideal that sinners have a second chance after death is abhorrent to, "Holy Scripture."...
---john9346 on 12/6/17

First, stop assuming I believe in purgatory. I do not.

Second, Scripture supports any and all viewpoints. The idea that Gehenna is the permanent repository for "lost" people is incorrect. Gehenna is destroyed by the end of The Revelation, as seen in this verse:

Rev 22:15 " But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie"

Who are these people outside the gates, after Death and Hades are thrown into the lake of fire?

The only thing anyone really CAN do to stop abortion is vote for pro-life law makers.
---ObamasBoy on 12/6/17

I disagree.

As I have stated before, I have sat quietly in front of one of our local PP mills with my sign (Abortion Stops a Beating Heart) many times.

I have no clue if I have changed anyone's mind, but I have received my share of death-stares and harassment from owners, operators, customers, pro-choice protesters, and even police.

But I will continue to do it as my part to stop abortion.

Is Senator Warren A Native
Is it though?
---NurseRobert on 12/5/17

Everyone in the US SouthEast has a story like EW. The Cherokee blood is so thin everyone born east of the Mississippi River and south of the Mason-Dixon line is likely to have Cherokee blood in them.

But none that I know claim this "native" blood. Why would they? Look at what it gets them. If you know any real natives they are likely to tell you what it costs them to be native.

But EW knew what she was doing. She suddenly "declared" only on this one Law directory, when doing so would attract attention, attract clients, and attract distinction.

Investigate how natives feel about "pretendians". They do not support EW.

Yes, there are many verses to start Heb 9:27, 2 Cor 5:8, Jn 19:30.
---john9346 on 12/5/17

Heb 9:27 - Judgment biblically is the setting right of things. This has no time limit. God can continue to set things right even after our death.

2 Cor 5:8 - see below

John 19:30 - I guess you are questioning everyone going to purgatory. I do too.

But what if only those who do not have a relationship with Jesus are outside the gates in Gehenna? What if God uses "purgatory" as a way to continue to bring those into right relationship, into right judgment?

Is Senator Warren A Native
I'm not sure how you can even compare these two...Warren stated she was native American...She was wrong to do so...Trump, OTOH, used the term as a racial slur.
---NurseRobert on 12/4/17

Both are sins. Is one sin greater than another?

Neither murdered. Both used their tongues to sin. Both sins are hated by God.

Warren - a lying tongue.

Trump - sowing discord among brethren

The following is a spit in the face of the Lord Jesus Christ's Atoning Work:
---john9346 on 12/5/17

Do you have any proof (BCV) that this is not true?

Seems to me this verse says as much:

Phil 1:6 "being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ"

Most people do not read the last five words of this verse. If they do, they do not read the words close enough to understand what they imply.

God will continue to work on us until the Day Jesus returns, even if we are dead!

Is Senator Warren A Native
she identified as a minority.
---kathr4453 on 12/4/17

When a person identifies as a minority, specifically a native, they normally belong to that native "tribe".

EW has never applied for membership in their tribe, has never had her ancestry traced which would tell her if she is native, and has never even met with a tribal representative about her ancestry.

And yet, she identified herself as "native" in a Law directory.

What was her motivation for identifying as a native if not some kind of benefit?

They even have a name for people who claim native blood without proof, "pretendians". They include Johnny Cash, Miley Cyrus, Johnny Depp and even Bill Clinton.

Feminist Bake Cakes
I said JESUS didn't say anything. Genesis was in the Old Testament.
---StrongAxe on 12/4/17

Jesus did say something. You keep missing it.

Matt 19:3 "Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all"

Any reason could include LGBT.

What was Jesus response? "What God has joined, let no man separate".

Jesus created them male and female. And He said "for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother".

What is the reason in "for this reason"?

For intercourse reasons. Get it?

I give Elizabeth the benefit of the doubt, just like you give Roy Moore the BENEFIT OF THE doubt.
---kathr4453 on 12/4/17

I do too, and she still does not measure up.

According to her family legend, if true, her heritage would make her 1/32 Cherokee.

According to most Native American tribes, a person needs at least 1/16 native heritage to be called "Native". Cherokee officials have said that she is not Cherokee.

Unless Elizabeth wants to return to the "one drop" Antebellum laws, she need to stop claiming she is a Native American.

Feminist Bake Cakes
I only heard about the baker in Colorado refusing to do a wedding cake for an LGBT couple.
---Monk_Brendan on 12/4/17

Is your argument that the baker is being hypocritical?

This baker has refused to make cakes for Halloween, hate speech, and anti-American themes.

This country is so odd. The two groups fighting over this reverse their positions in the NFL discussion. The liberals want the baker forced but the NFL players free, and the conservatives want the baker free and the NFL players forced.

Can we have liberty for all?

Feminist Bake Cakes
You are arguing from absence. The absence of a thing is not the same as the forbiddance of a thing.
---StrongAxe on 12/1/17

Sorry, but that is not correct. I am arguing from the affirmative viewpoint.

God affirmatively created a helper for Adam, a female. God affirmatively joins the man and woman in marriage. God affirmatively says "What God joins, do not let man separate".

Does this make LGBT illegal? No. Does it make it wrong? Yes.

There are many ways to separate men and women, divorce, adultery, LGBT, and many I cannot get thru the filters. All of them are banned via OT scripture. Why are they banned? Because they separate men and women.

Christian Baker Wedding Cake
Jesus never taught anything against LGBT...
---StrongAxe on 11/30/17

Better read your Bible again...

Jesus creates all things, John 1:3.

And God created them in God's image, male and female, Gen. 1:27

And God created a helper (suitable) for the man, a woman (not another man), Gen. 2:22

And Jesus refers to this in answering the Pharisees asking Him about divorce.

And Jesus says, "what God has joined, let no man separate".

God has joined men and women. LGBT is the separating of men and women. It is just as wrong as divorce.

Christian Baker Wedding Cake
Should a Christian baker bake a wedding cake for a man and woman who are Hindu? Or divorced?
---Monk_Brendan on 11/22/17

I rarely blog on political issues. And these blogs are becoming more and more political. I guess if I want to blog with you, I have to speak on political issues.

The issue is liberty, personal freedom.

Do I have liberty if someone forces me to do something I choose not to do?

The baker chooses not to bake for a Hindu couple. Is this discrimination? Perhaps, but according to Title VII of the Civil Rights act, Hindus are not a protected classification of citizens. Neither is LGBT a protected class of citizens. Neither are divorcees.

Christ In You
Whats the difference between you in Christ and Christ in you?
---micha6489 on 11/13/17

There is one verse that summarizes it:

John 14:20 "In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you"

First, the phrase "you in Me" speaks of our belief, our trust in His faith:

John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God..."

Second, the phrase "I in you" means His Spirit in us, the Holy Spirit:

John 14:17 "that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you"

Rich Man Lazarus
A cursory study of the original Greek shows that the "body" spoken of in this context is the carnal nature...
---Jerry6593 on 11/13/17


I would not like your Greek class. The word "body" in 2 Cor 5:8 is "somatos" used in the LXX for a corpse, used in the NT for the body of men and animals, and used by Homer and in other Classical Greek writings for a dead body or corpse.

I think the word you are referring to is sarx, or "flesh" in English.

And the context of 2 Cor. 5:8 is verse 1, in which the Apostle Paul talked about this "earthly tent". Also in verse 6, Paul mentions that while we are in this earthly body, we are absent from the Lord.

Rich Man Lazarus
Yes, because the story of Lazarus was very specifically about a flesh and blood resurrection
---StrongAxe on 11/9/17

Perhaps I am missing the point of this dialog.

The lack of testimony by Lazarus was significant to Jerry, Samuel, etc. because they believe in the theory of Soul Sleep. The body asleep in the grave and the soul asleep with the body.

I do not agree with this theory and believe that our soul goes to God after death.

Lazarus did not testify to any visions of God or heaven after death, seemingly confirming the theory of Soul Sleep.
