Barry, I think hate is a misnomer applied to evil people doing evil things, but limited according to who is doing it. A white murdered by a "person of color" isn't considered hate, but the reverse is. A straight murdered by a "gay" isn't considered hate, but the reverse is. And so on. It's almost as if we are afraid to call evil for what it is, no matter from which direction it comes.
At the end of the day Bono still has his millions and goes home to his estate,people need to remember that when people like Bono associate themselves with politicians to benefit the poor your money goes out of your pocket and his money stays in his,there are going to be plenty of people standing before God expecting credit for what they did with other people's money....I doubt it will fly.
Excellent Reminder Pastor Greg, Thank you for this excellent reminder of what a privilege it is to be chosen. We too often take our Christianity for granted and miss out on the attitude of praise we should have. I liked how you tied it together with the responsibility that comes with bing afforded the privilege of salvation. The Vanderbilt example was a good illustration. I always get so much from your teaching.
I have to wonder how "range fees" Bundy allegedly owes could add up to a million dollars in 20 years. New York has some awful fees that have slipped in to supplement the awful taxes, but 50k a year in fees seems over the top. If I were Bundy, since his family has ranched there for 140 years, long before there was a BLM, I might be tempted to get the BLM arrested for trespassing and rustling cattle.
Jim, don't you worry, the bison are gone, now BLM is working on the wild horses and the last of the cattle, and the land will be barren and run by the Chinese, the useless germ carriers will be pinned on top of one another in the cities doing their "service" jobs as they have been allotted. all the bundy types will learn to go metro to survive. thing is, why would a woman getting her cattle on public land have her life in mortal danger from land managers? I'm having trouble recognizing this, where have I seen land managers before lined up as snipers? nope, haven't seen that either.
that's right, GS, you are a real encouragement here, we've gone through many of the same things. we see a lot of compromise, people believe what tickles their ears and you talk with nonChristians they often have more sense..... which is really troubling. but then you'll find a gem of a Christian that has discernment and the love of Christ, and that is a great treasure!
1- adults would've been reintroduced to chickenpox in mid years from children, giving them a natural boost as their immune systems wane. because they have not had this since 1995, they are now more susceptible. its simple cause and effect.

Sorry, you are not making sense to me. All I did was put out a passage of Scripture and that means I don't love the Lord Jesus Christ??? I surely need to love Him more, but I find your post confusing, you are arguing with the Lord's own words.
I agree to a point. What I really wish is that the pastors of the "new calvinism" would take note regarding their associations. Even if they do all way end up having is a stupid conferrence when what we need to do is draw a line in the sand and tell these pastors to repent and stop leading these people astray about christianity.
