Hello Lisa from Wales, ou are correct in saying the refugees need the love of Christ.However,the Bible also says do not allow them to set up their tent( mosques). We are praying against Islam in Greece.The refugee problem requires wisdom and will become a spiritual problem for all of Europe when millions of muslims enter into a country.Yes Lisa,they do need Jesus.But I insist when I say the power of God needs to sweep through Europe and Greece.I cannot bear the thought of having mosques built for millions of muslims.Greeks have shown nothing but kindness towards the refugees and we have Christians teams minitering to them.However,I don't want Islamic laws to be passed into EU law.Bless you Lisa for your heart.
The last funeral I attended was for a couple who had been stabbed to death. I don't see how it would have been worse if the weapon had been a firearm. Quite the opposite, a shooting might have seemed less violent.
Don't pretend that murder and violence would suddenly stop if guns were gone.
Also, it seems that when the Israelites turned from God, part of His punishment was to disarm them.
1Samuel 13:19 Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears:
Judges 5:8 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?
Jamie from Iowa , I think your point is valid. Cruz probably is the smartest canidate out there, he needs to develop a economic plan that is identifiable. We know he'll hit high marks on life and the constitution, I just don't know what his view of economics are. But, he is definitely better than the Clinton concocted Trojan horse - Trump was a registered democrat, is pro abortion, christian in name only, and just plain vile. Oh but, he 'll make America great by giving us hope and change. Been there done that.

Living the dream. With a gun shop on every corner, it just don't get any better.
Oh, btw....... since you singled out assault rifles; did you know that more people have been killed with hammers than with rifles the past few years? We've just got to do something about all those hammers in the hands of crazies.
(From 1st link) Genesis 4:8-12 In this passage, Scripture records the first murder wherein Cain killed Abel. That Cain must have used some sort of weapon to kill Abel is evidenced by the fact that Abel was bleeding (he was not strangled). Notice how God responded to the killing. He did not institute some sort of weapon-control, rather, He punished the one who committed the crime.
Exodus 20 and following In His holy Law, which God decreed at Sinai, nowhere do you see God outlawing weapons in regards to the various crimes which He prohibited in His legislation. He always punishes the perpetrator. He never disarms the citizenry.
Exodus 22:2 In this verse, God declares that if someone breaks into your house at night and you kill him, you are not guilty of murder. This verse makes clear that you have a God-given right to defend yourself and to defend your family.
Deuteronomy 22:23-27 This passage deals with rape. Notice that verse 27 ends with the words "but there was no one to save her." What is the implication of such a statement? The implication is that had someone been around to hear her cry out, they had a moral duty to intervene and protect her from being raped. To stand by would be immoral. We have a God-given right to defend not only ourselves, but also others.
I am shocked at these posts - these people are fleeing severe persecution and civil war. We must badger governments to stop putting their head in the sand and come up with a rational solution. We must pray for these people and we must show them the love of Christ.
1 cor 13 1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
To st Elmo, the links I put up were records from the state of Connecticut. You're the one that needs to not believe everything you read on the internet.
Solutions, I take it that means you have no locks on your doors, you leave you keys in your car, and if your loved was about to step into danger (like the path of an oncoming vehicle) you wouldn't do anything because it would show your lack of trust in God.
When God was going to flood the earth, He had Noah build an Ark first.
I think Trump is bringing out a lot of people to take an interest in the election who have never voted. I have heard many callers on different radio talk shows that say that. They may outnumber the 21 million Republicans who voted in primaries in 2008, and even the 37 million Democrats who voted in primaries then. Some polls are showing this support for him, though I wonder how accurate can telephoned polls be when most people do not have landline telephones, and those who do have caller-i.d. devices to resist picking up the phone for anyone they don't recognize.
