ya, Bush and Madeline Albright. common bedfellows it seems.
Madeleine Albright - The deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it for Iraq's non existent WMD's, 1996
this stuff is sick Geff, best for your spiritual health to come out of it.
best for the world that evangelicals REPENT, our vote is affecting the whole world, our PRIDE and FALSE TEACHERS are no excuse for wedding with the most extreme form of islm, Wahhabism. (Saudi)
Europe is falling to the invasion through rape conquest, Syria is filled with the western backed jihadists, they are trading ISIS oil with our ally turkey, Russia is there saying they won't put up with it anymore, they have nuclear as back up. YOUR nation is in no position anymore to provoke.
Cults learn when it is too late. Christ will purify His Church and Message to the world!
Penny/Penned/Pennelope, I never said he was only a "theoretical human being"! Where do you get this stuff! I said he was not involved in some creepy conspiracy to take over the world! I repeat: HE WAS NOT INVOLVED IN SOME CREEPY CONSPIRACY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!
Hmm, Just because some people who claim to have read it say it would "take down the Washington DC machine", does not mean that it says our government planned 911! Let's be honest here, the information that was redacted could be about anything: our dealings with the Saudies, info on our security (or the lack thereof), etc.! Any of the above would have been embarrasing to the government to have released at that time, not to mention if it was about matters of national security, it could not be releasedto the public. When government documents are released to the public, they often have redactions to ensure the safety of operatives, or to keep classified info out of the average persons hands! That redaction could have easily been talking about agents on the ground in Saudi Arabia, or ahost of other things. You are asuming that it's about how our government supposedly planned 911! There is no real tangable evidence that that was the case, only your speculation about something you've never read!
A sign of collapse around the corner. It used to be that the only reason you would use a bank was to gain interest on your money. But slowly the system forced you to need a bank account in order to be a citizen.
Sister B, thanks for your responses, will, Lord willing, try and map out time to listen to the sermon you suggested tonight.
You still can't, as a previous poster noted, say that Paul had issues with sports. After condemning things that occurred at the games (settings) to Mike in a previous post, you then said it was not sports per se but the settings.
Paul used sports to sum up his entire walk and ministry in II Timothy. He, John UK, said that the very tenor of your entire Christian life was to be likened unto a marathon. He told us we are to daily wrestle against this world system. I would say he held sports in high esteem.
The association that you and others claim we need to avoid with sports, you find when you shop at a supermarket, get gasoline, or eat in various restaurants.
I am not trying to put out an argument for or against participation in or watching of modern sports. (Rom14:5b)
Dear sister, when you share your thoughts, you may not say "I think" but that is what you are doing, saying what you think.
Lastly, if my memory serves me correctly, not a guarantee, someone stated that many preachers on SA agree with the sc/bmc take on sports, I would like to see someone name ten or even a handful.

What you need to do, if you don't yet see the point, is to read some textual critics and see what they mean by "the Bible contains God's word". That means that Isaiah could be God's words, but Joel maybe not God's words.
But if you say, "the Bible IS God's word", then all within its pages are the very words of God.
I know it sounds like a meaningless play on words, but there are people out there who promote a Bible which is not inerrant, nor can be trusted in every verse. This is why there is such a free-for-all in many churches.
Quote from article; ""Indeed, creationism is so silly that the government has de-funded schools which teach it. They are not eligible for taxpayer support, because they are promulgating an unscientific myth. Of course science does not hold all the answers, but it is generally believed to provide some of them. To believe that God literally created the earth in six days is to deny basic elements of logic.""
It is so sad that the reprobates cannot believe in truth. But that is how God has providentially created this humanity we live amongst. The article has clearly been written by one who is heading to an eternal hell and damnation in his complete ignorance of truth. But this is the destiny for 99 per cent of humanity.
Eph 4:17 ..... Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Alternatively:- Through the sinful human nature we speculate that by a "Big Bang" in a vacuum ???? something as complex as human life emerged from nothing ????
With all due respect bro John , as far as im concerned, they're one and of the same statement , it is the word of / contains the words, really? So the bible is the word of God . The bible doesn't contain God's word. Lord bless mate, I promise to shut up, but c'mon really
Paul clearly sees no problem in using the analogy of competitive sport to bring out a message. The competitive nature in man is a God given ability. The fact that the secular world abuses this to publish the abomination is just the sin filled ugly and defiled nature of the beast.
2Timothy 2:5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. (KJV)
2Timothy 2:5 An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. (ESV)
1Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. (KJV)
1Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable (ESV)
Negative interest is like the Romish-Arminian method of religion. The Christian invests all his faith in the totally sovereign God because he is fully aware of his own total depravity.
Whereas the Romish-Arminian cannot invest all his faith because he believes that some of his own perceived "meritous" faculties are necessary to cooperate unto salvation.
"A negative interest rate means the central bank and perhaps private banks will charge negative interest: instead of receiving money on deposits, depositors must pay regularly to keep their money with the bank. This is intended to incentivize banks to lend money more freely and businesses and individuals to invest, lend, and spend money rather than pay a fee to keep it safe." (investopedia.com)
