"Matthew 11:30 Â Â Â "30. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is lightâ€”Matchless paradox, even among the paradoxically couched maxims in which our Lord delights! That rest which the soul experiences when once safe under Christ's wing makes all yokes easy, all burdens light. "--JFB Commentary
I'm great at leaving out negative modifiers I have very little rote memory. One reason I was looking around for the Roman Road verses to put on a tablet and I landed on this thread, and hence my belated responses.
Jamesc, I really do have to look at some of my postings after doing them. If you are still around, I will state that this is not, "Easy Believism," it is just important to get the entire message of salvation to a person, before he turns off and tunes out. Many people are not going to sit through an hour or two lecture on their sin and why they need Christ. Now after they hear the presentation of the Roman Road, then you can go into detail. If you have is for the rote memory as I do, you'll even need prompt card of what I had in my last message.

Since the number of Christians are next to to none in the Senate, probably all prayers have a political content, but for a Christian who shouldn't have been there, Prayer is not shared with non-Christians.
Yes, we are all unhappy what China has done to to Tibet, but the D.L. probably even realizes he has to try to accommodate to Chinese control.
JustJames, Davey was like many Sotherners and he just switched parties that was more aligned with his goals. To Bush Sr.'s credit, he condemned Duke and made it plain, at least his type of Republican wanted nothing to do with him. But, yes, I do assume you pay much more attention to his types than I would, not that we don't have these types in Nebraska, but he is in your neck of the woods.

Morally, this book will show the high rate of crime and sin among Roman Catholics everywhere, and particularly in the United States. It will also demonstrate that this immorality is not in spite of Catholic education and training, but directly because of it.
Many people neither have the money, the time, the background, nor the inclination to home school. My church has a good mix of homeschoolers, attendees of of Christian schools and public schools.
Mike of NY, if one's state opted out of the abortion section of the plan--apparently NY didn't-- no one would be paying for those abhorrent services, and meanwhile, American Way of Birth, Costliest in the World has helped it costs to be lowered.
With baby bush,"ignorance was bliss," so the buck should have stopped there. Apparently the committee members have been tight-lipped thank goodness. It would have even looked worse, if everything was discussed in public.
UPS, the American Revolution was a rebellion against recognized authority, something I think, the British are still somewhat disgruntled about -- we'll have to ask some our British visitors about that. But, there's no argument that American Revolution was much more civilized than the ones that followed it, and it preserved much of the status quo, and except for the large black population wasn't a bad thing.
But, I believe I pointed out I'm a blue-blood --Northern-- Republican. The reasons I became an Independent is for the likes of Nixon (He should've been impeached), and the Party, turning into a Catholic Dixiecan party, has kept me away from it, as it has many other Northern Republicans. It was the Northern Republicans that brought Civil Rights of the 19th Century.
LBJ, I'm surprised he did say such strong things for Civil Rights and against the KKK. I only really saw that recently. When he was saying that, I happened to be a draftee for fighting his war in Southeast Asia. So, I was isolated from civilization for a year. But, you can see, I have no fondness for the man. Oh, Southerners, Sen. Sam Nunn a Southern Catholic Demo., struck me as level-headed. General Lonstreet became a Repub., when it wasn't stylish. So, I'm not trying to stereotype
JSC, yes the GOP is very far along on a right wing tilt, many have fallen off the edge. Now of course I don't support the Tea Party, I would have to say I'm very close to a Samâ€™s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party. But if not supporting right wing nut jobs make some people unhappy. Great
The Dark Power of Fraternities is really a good article. in a very few places one might want to sanitize the language, I can't say the picture that was given means the fraternities are different now than they were decades ago. I really don't think they are. The dichotomy between faculty and administration who loves or despises these organizations I think is greater than portrayed.
The amount of booze that flows in these organizations of course show a strong Catholic influence and those of mainline denominations who are indifferent to booze. I really doubt, the movie, "Animal House," increase the popularity of these organizations. It just showed what was going on anyway.
So, all in all, when you see a bunch of drunken fraternity members, just think your next group of politicians will come from that group.
