Daniel Pipes wrote: These cases make more Westerners worried about Islam and related topics from the building of minarets to female infibulation. Overall, a relentless march rightwards is underway. Surveys of European attitudes show 60 to 70 percent of voters expressing these concerns. Populist individuals like Geert Wilders of the Netherlands and parties like the Sweden Democrats are surging in the polls.
But when it comes to the Establishment â€“ politicians, the police, the press, and the professors â€“ the unrelenting violence has a contrary effect. Those charged with interpreting the attacks live in a bubble of public denial (what they say privately is another matter) in which they feel compelled to pretend that Islam has no role in the violence, in part out of concern that to recognize it would cause even more problems.
Rick Norris wrote: In their preface to the 1611 KJV, the KJV translators argued that it was good to revise and attempt to improve earlier translations of God's Word. They acknowledged that attempts to revise the Bible such as theirs were often incorrectly viewed with suspicion and jealousy. They realized that they would be accused of changing and correcting God's Word, but they still contended that revision was necessary. They wrote: "If anything be halting, or superfluous, or not so agreeable to the original, the same may be corrected, and the truth set in place."
John MacArthur said or, wrote: In his Ineffabilis Deus in 1854, Pope Pius IX established as dogma the immaculate conception of Mary,... His concluding statements provide a good summary of the Catholic view of Mary.
Let all the children of the Catholic Church, who are so very dear to us, hear these words of ours. With a still more ardent zeal for piety, religion and love, let them continue to venerate, invoke and pray to the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, conceived without original sin. Let them fly with utter confidence to this most sweet Mother of mercy and grace in all dangers, difficulties, needs, doubts and fears. Under her guidance, under her patronage, under her kindness and protection, nothing is to be feared; nothing is hopeless. Because, while bearing toward us a truly motherly affection and having in her care the work of our salvation, she is solicitous about the whole human race. And since she has been appointed by God to be the Queen of heaven and earth, and is exalted above all the choirs of angels and saints, and even stands at the right hand of her only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,...What she asks, she obtains. Her pleas can never be unheard.

Ah, Penny, perhaps they were worked up because Trump acts like a Russian agent?
Zeke J. Miller wrote: If you only read one thing: Donald Trump doubled-down on his statements of praise for Russian strongman Vladimir Putin Thursday, as his campaign and running-mate praise the authoritarian leader as superior to President Obama. Trump followed that up with an appearance on RT, the Russian-governmentâ€™s English-language network, in which he criticized the U.S. media and again raised doubts about the fairness of the U.S. election process. His comments came as the FBI stepped up its outreach to states to prevent potential election intrusions as intelligence officials investigate increasingly aggressive and sophisticated hacking attacks believed to be part of a Russian-government effort to influence the U.S. election.
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
