Jim God does not accept your judgments. God and His Holy Spirit used the KJV/TR for centuries and built His Church with it. God ordained the KJB/TR God Does not accept heretics such as helped write your modern versions NIV/NASB.

You have a very subjective understanding of 'unorthodox' that would conflict with Merriam Websters definition of unorthodox
I would say your understanding of the English language is more unorthodox than RCC doctrine(and thats saying something)

In my country, that could cause problems such as extra traffic, parking, noise etc. This is why planning consent must be sought for each use of a building. It makes sense actually. You wouldn't want a car scrap yard setting up next door to you, or a night club, or gambling den?
Dr. Robert A. Joyner wrote: ... I believe it is misguided for fundamental Baptists to defend a version of the Bible based on a Greek text, prepared by a liberal Roman Catholic, translated by Episcopalians and authorized by a king who hated Baptists. While they reject translations based on a Greek text approved by all the great scholars and early fundamental leaders and translated by good Bible believing scholars from all groups, including Baptists.... This irony is strange indeed when fundamental Baptists take sides with Episcopalians and Catholics and reject their own.

Chris, quite correct. Also Virginia, has a lot of people of Washington D.C., living in it. I see it's about 14% Catholic, which is always pro-queer, and I would assume the Episcopalians, and other liberal denominations are as well. Virginia, most definitely has a split personality between liberals and conservatives on many issues.
Jim -- guess what? the meat you buy at the store is raw too.
there was a time when people knew how to handle foods properly...actually they still do..... what was that quote from CS Lewis about those who come "to help" who think they know better than you what is good for you, they often cause the most damage? ah, I'd love to get that quote, he said it a lot better.... anyway, nanny state you want, nanny state you are going to get Jim. We are tasting it morning, afternoon and night!
I assume this commentary was written by a non-Christian, but then many Christians have there doubts about James Dobson being a Christian as well, Christians Turn on James Dobson This is what a Christian pastor had to say about Dobson's and other's psychobabble.
Gil Rugh(in Issue #7) wrote: Turn on the Christian radio station and see if psychology dominates the programming. A local station ran two days of programming by James Dobson and Gary Collins, encouraging young people to go into the study of psychology. Their response to those who oppose the mixing of psychology and the Bible was, âWho is going to help people in future years if our young people donât go study psychology?â
When I was a young person growing up, radio preachers said, âWho will help people in the coming years if young people donât go study the Word of God?â Now we get two days of programming, repeated three times throughout the day, saying, âWho will help mankind if young people donât go study psychology?â

My argument against the RCC is a theological one; not a criminal or civil one? If you read my meditation on the subject, that will become clear. I quote from their canons and don't add anything to them, so I certainly didn't commit pergury.
Ah, Charity, he ate them with honey, while not covering a multitude of sins does covers up a lot of nasty tastes!
jpw, of course raw milk is not the same as organic, Raw milk: Fit for human consumption?. jpw, you really need to to move to Nebraska, from what I've read, we must be one of the backward states in the nation. I'm surprised why doomsday preppers didn't buy up all the old Atlas missile silos?
SteveR wrote: Cult? Baptists accusing Catholics of being a cult is nothing more than a projection of their own attributes. You canât own up to your own dark side so you accuse the RCC of your own shortcomings then irrationally attack them to feel good & self-righteous about yourself While I dont agree with all aspects of Catholic doctrine, I would have difficulty applying this ridiculous label to the Catholic Church let alone consider sane anyone that spent hours putting together a 50 page paper on the absurd accusation.
Well, I sure hope I don't come off as being self-righteous. Who said I was Baptist? The following is true without nuance.
 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I [am] the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these [things] I delight, saith the LORD.  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all [them which are] circumcised with the uncircumcised; (Jer 9:24-25 KJV)
 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (1Cr 1:30-31 KJV)
IT CUT MY HEART Yes, Jesus prayed for He was a lonely man on this earth and was suffering from rejection which had resulted in depression. In those days they did not have any medication for depression as per now. So poor God-man had to depend on the foolish wisdom of HIS heavenly father to free Himself from the predators who could never be satisfied of their hunger for bread and wine. If He had lived presently, firstly, He would have taken the advice of well informed, highly qualified BRAINS that had taken billions of years to develop. Secondly, He would have had no choice but to have depended on the human knowledge of doctors which is based on the ever trust worthy power of REASONING that came to effect after billions of years of development. Poor Jesus! Thanks for explaining this fact in a simple way brother. ALL GLORY BE TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!

As for disparagement, you deserve to be disparaged for your idiotic postings. As for name calling, I'm glad I didn't have to name call. You filled in the blank yourself stupid!

Just because we perceive that this is a fallen and sinful world, it does not mean we reject the Bible at Romans 13 or any other chapter.
As Christians we don't fit into this world or its politics, but when God states quote; "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." Then obey God and trust in Him to direct your life for His purpose - not yours.

The DOJ provides yet another example that the worlds government, politicians and bureaucrcy are antiChrist and antiBible. It should be no surprise to Christians anywhere that we will be persecuted. Jesus forewarned us that this would happen. Our task is to continue to follow the Bible and trust only in God.
