Helen of the old country welcome from the new again! I'm glad you do read your Bible and realize that Superessionism is wrong q.v., 12 Reasons Why Supersessionism / Replacement Theology Is Not a Biblical Doctrine, a comment from it, "I think we do not attach sufficient importance to the restoration of the Jews. We do not think enough of it. But certainly, if there is anything promised in the Bible it is this."--Charles H. Spurgeon. Ah, I believe written by Dr. Vlach, a heavyweight in theology, people liked his preaching too, maybe Gil Rugh can get him to come back to IHCC?
SteveR, so many of the Jews intermarried with Europeans so? They weren't of an Aryan mindset? Also many of the Jews now in Israel came from Middle East countries -- thanks to the nasty treatment by the Muhammadans To top it all off, why not support an oasis of civilization in the Middle East? Israel's Contributions. So, even an atheist should support Israel.
One of the best Android tablets for the money was only sold by Walmart, by Hisense, the Serio 7 Pro, cheaper than the comparable Nexus 7 by at least a $100 -- and it had more features! Hisense is also PLA (People's Liberation Army) company, it makes few excuses that is a state enterprise. I mention this because you can only buy his tablet refurbished now. I would suggest you read the transcript about Wal-Mart. As I said what I read about the "Peyton Place" Koch brothers, Catholics make good soap-opera and lousy politicians--is that they apparently treat their employees well -- Wal-Mart not so much.
A famous adulterous Catholic had much to do with B. Graham's early success,
Cecilia Rasmussen wrote: Word that Hollywood celebrities were "stepping forward to receive Christ" reached publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, who sent a two-word telegram to every editor in his newspaper chain: "Puff Graham."
Graham told The Times in 2004 that he learned about it from two of Hearst's sons. They believed their father came to the 1949 revival in his wheelchair and in disguise, accompanied by his longtime mistress, actress Marion Davies. Hearst's intervention prompted the revival to run eight weeks -- five weeks longer than planned. Hearst died less than two years later.
"I never met him and I never corresponded with him," Graham said. "I should have written him and thanked him."

John Y., I know enough about Colorado climate, and while the Chinook winds certainly make the lands of before the frontal range more pleasant, than they would be otherwise, it's still no Southern California. Yes, in the summer the weather can be very pleasant there, my family spend quite a few vacations in Colorado, during the summer months, and the climate is superior to Eastern Nebraska in the summer. Anyway, go read the article about the Chinook winds, one thing you'll get too many positive ions instead of those healthy Negative Ions. There must be a lot of positive ions in Catholic Churches, that's why you should Come Out of the Catholic Church, but as this article points out avoiding the stench of incense would be a very minor reason for leaving the Romish Church, there are plenty other of reasons as well!
I looked over the article, and looks like I would agree with most of it, except that Swedish economy as is most of the Scandinavian are in better shape than the rapacious economic model that the U.S. follows, Sweden does still follow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordic_model (Nordic Capitalism). Also because of the liberal and thoughtless immigration policies of the Scandinavian countries, they all except possibly Finland have a Muhammadan problem
Anne, not being critical at all, because sometimes a single verse can be of use, but still it should be remembered,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The Bible is God's communication to man concerning who He is, how sinful man can be in a personal relationship with Him and how to live in that relationship.
This communication is perfect, as God is perfect and unchanging in its truthfulness and relevance because God who spoke it is truthful and unchanging.
The challenge for us is to approach the Bible to learn and study what it says without reading into it what we want it to say. There are certain principles that can be applied that will allow us to rightly divide the Word and understand what God has said, and what He meant when He inspired the men who wrote it down. The basic rules of interpretation discussed follow the literal, grammatical, historical hermeneutic.
2nd Timothy 3 14¬†But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. 15¬†From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus. 16¬†Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 17¬†that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Ah, completely wrong SteveR! see the site, http://www.governor.nebraska.gov/trademissions/cuba_07/index.html(Cuba Trade Mission March 26 - 28, 2007). Nebraskan farmers looooove Cuba We may have some idiotlogues in the Nebr. GOP who wouldn't ignore principle for money, but they'll soon be reminded what the Greedy Old Party is all about. I would have thought there were later trade missions later than this, but Nebraska biggest industry would want to jump into bed with the Cubans that would provide them with more markets. So throw out that embargo. Personally, I don't see the embargo hurting the USA any, but then it probably doesn't hurt the Cubans that much either, Our good neighbor to the north has been keeping them well supplied in many things including tourists, UPDATE 1-Canada PM says hosting U.S.-Cuba talks allowed discretion. So, you're talking to wrong state when it comes to trade with Cuba.
Dr. Clark, I often post this to remind our fellow Christians about, The Christian Right Movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, Notes on Reconstructionism. Conservative Christians are overlooking The Inadequacy of Moralism and of political action. Dominion Theology/Kingdom Now/Reconstructionism is an anti-Biblical curse.
