Kyle Folie wrote: ...The issue is that Trump's nationalist base sees globalism as this horrific idea that will bring about the destruction of America, unless Trump says it won't. In this case, as we see time and time again, his supporters are blindly following the leader right over the cliff and into the abyss, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Globalism, to some extent, is a necessary thing. Trump knows, he makes the large majority of his products in other countries because it's cheaper that way, and there is no tax on imported goods such as Trump Ties. Trump claimed to support such ridiculous import tariffs because it's what gave him his base, but he proved again in Mexico that everything he says on the campaign trail is a lie....
It is due to other factors, actually factor -- original sin
Amer. Tract Dictionary 1859 wrote: Murder: .... In various ways God is represented as specially abhorring this crime, and securing its punishment, De 32:43 2Sa 21:1 Ps 9:12 55:23 Ho 1:4 Re 22:15. Our Savior instructs us that one may be guilty, in the sight of God, of murder in the heart, without any overt act, Mt 5:21-22 1Jo 3:15. Nothing is said especially in the law respecting selfmurder, and only the cases of Saul, Ahithophel, and Judas are described in the Bible, 1Sa 31:4 2Sa 17:23 Ac 1:18. Of all murders, that of the soul is incomparably the most awful, Joh 8:44, and many plunge not only themselves but also others into the second death.
2 Kings 18:3 And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done. 4 He removed the high places and broke the pillars and cut down the Asherah. And he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the people of Israel had made offerings to it (it was called Nehushtan). 5 He trusted in the LORD the God of Israel, so that there was none like him among all the kings of Judah after him, nor among those who were before him. 6 For he held fast to the LORD. He did not depart from following him, but kept the commandments that the LORD commanded Moses.---ESV
Then Jesus wasn't recognizing his Father, Dave? Jesus recognized the Jewish God as his Father, so I think we can say that the Jews and Christians have the same God.
"...He is but one God, and yet exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and this distinction of the Three in One is, like his other attributes, from everlasting...." ---American Tract Dictionary, 1859
Romnans 6:13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.---ESV
2 Corinthians 2:15 For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, 16 to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.---ESV
Mike wrote: Trump did the unexpected, (the expected was to slam Hillary all over the stage) therefore the right thing to do. Hillary gained nothing from the debate. It was hers to make Trump look bad and she failed. Up to the debate Trump's poll numbers were improving. He did nothing to hinder that bit of momentum. None of this adds up to a Hillary win, debate wise or in November.
John MacArthur wrote: Many think this is a political problem that will not be solved without a political strategy. During the past twenty-five years, well-meaning Christians have founded a number of evangelical activist organizations and sunk millions of dollars into them in an effort to use the apparatus of politicsâ€”lobbying, legislation, demonstration, and boycottâ€”to counteract the moral decline of American culture....
But is that a proper perspective? I believe not. Americaâ€™s moral decline is a spiritual problem, not a political one, and its solution is the gospel, not partisan politics.
Here's how they can make everyone more comfortable, and they could use that money for what should be a very simple hospital procedure, so they could do a lot of them.
Matthew 18 7 â€śWoe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! 8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.
Matthew 19 12 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.---ESV
Ah, UPS, I don't think Hilly was around i the 1880's, let alone in Old Testament times.
By the way, DT really stubbed his toe saying that Hilly started the birther issue, He said she made a remark on CNN--which CNN flately denied
The Australians perceived he lost the debate, which helped their stock market anyway.
You don't have to go to the Old Testament for this--
1 Timothy 1:8-11 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.---ESV
John MacArthur wrote: What we're seeing in America is depravity bursting through some of the protective fences that we've tried to build around it. We've tried to deal with morality on a cultural basis, on a law basis. We've tried to maintain a Judeo/Christian moral standard in America and we've been able to do that through the centuries. But as it says in the fourteenth chapter of Acts, â€śGod has allowed all the nations to go their way.â€ť And eventually you can't contain this depravity. When Christian influence is strong, it's because there's many Christians. And as the non-Christians began to out number the Christians and as they begin to gain the ascendency and the power and the culture moves away from the Christian beginnings, such as we had in America and the same is true in Europe, post-Reformation, as those nations that were hot beds of the Reformation as America moves away from that, everything starts leaking out. The seams start to burst and out comes the depravity and we're seeing that all over everywhere in America.
Apparently you think only Jews will be there on the Day of Judgment, since the Decalogue only applies to them.
Matthew 22:34 Â¶ But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together. 35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37 And He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' 38 "This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 "The second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."---NASB
Hmm, I see that Dr. Sacra was with a different Christian medical mission organization?
If you read how these centers for highly contagious diseases are designed so shouldn't be worried, q.v.,

This unit was specifically designed to care for patients of this nature and is staffed with infectious disease experts who have prepared for years for situations like this one, The unit is sealed, guarded and secure. It's separate from other patient care areas, and just like the facility at Emory University, which successfully treated two Americans with Ebola last month, we are uniquely prepared to handle infectious diseases here.---Dr. Phil Smith, medical director of Nebraska's biocontainment unit.
Hillary Clinton wrote: But Iâ€™m looking at violence broadly. â€¦ Itâ€™s also why Iâ€™ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loopholeâ€”because, you know, itâ€™s not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. â€¦ Weâ€™ve got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we canâ€¦.
