I know what you mean brother. Sometimes I wonder if they are not trying to answer someone else's post. Always glad to read your post. Sometimes I have to take a long break from the comments. Some people think that they are God appointed to straighten everyone else out. And they turn every article into their favorite hobby horse. There are about seven or eight posters that I always enjoy. As for Pumpkins; we raised them on our Indiana farm. And at Thanksgiving, I become a bigger man from those pies.
Dave wrote: So true mike from ny. I'm seriously considering not doing my dip in religious theology for this very reason. Sometimes I think it better to quit and just continue reading Gods word and much prayer would be a better way to spend my not so spare time.
Always enjoy your perspective Dave. You are one out of few that don't play Arm Chair Theologian. When people spend their time in God's word and personal research, it shows even in the comments they make.

Don't tell a sodomite that the lifestyle they chose will eventually kill them because it might make them nervous. Crazy times, Joe, as we.see the end times umfolding before our very eyes as the Christians and sodomites switch places...Christians are now the ones being forced into the same closets that the sodomites used to hide in, as we are being accused of being filled with hatered, intolerance, being unreasonable, and mentally deranged kooks.
So right. I hope this will cause Christians to wake up, stop living for themselves, and get serious for the things of the Lord. It certainly is having that effect on me.
Bro. McLeod wrote: I am glad that people are finally outraged concerning this garbage that our president Obama has pushed down the Turnpike since he has been in office. He said he wanted change and that was his slogan, and this is the change that the American people voted for... This is what happens when we vote in a far left liberal socialist (undercover muslim) president into the office of the United States of America. Now they're teaching our children in the schools the wicked Islamic Muslim faith. Whatever happened to the mixture of church and state? where is the voice of the ACLU? this is exactly what happens when President Obama makes a statement such as, "this is no longer a Christian nation"! and not one group of Christians came out and said much about his offensive false statement.
Talk about irony. The other day on PBS a panel of 60s Berkley graduates were discussing this very thing, and rebuking the lack of free speech in colleges. They pointed out that we are raising a generation of babies that don't want their feelings hurt. And what will happen when they enter the job market. Well, in the short term they won't make it. But I'm afraid that this mentality will be adopted by employers one day as well.
Let's see here. The city council says the preachers have no right to speak on morality. Yet the City council is making a Moral judgment and statement by doing so. So the City council has the right to make Moral Statements, but no one else does. Does that about sum it up?
After hearing of this I e mailed the dept. This: I just read a news article in which Ky. DOJJ has ordered a Pastor to stop telling people homosexuality is a sin. I don't know if this article is true, but if it is. This is setting a bad president, that will lead to states coming into churches to do the same. Freedom of religious expressing (I'm speaking of course of non violent) is being hampered in the public arena already. Please do not add to it.
And this is the response I got.
"H. DJJ staff, volunteers, interns, and contractors, in the course of their work, shall not refer to juveniles by using derogatory language in a manner that conveys bias towards or hatred of the LGBTQI community. DJJ staff, volunteers, interns, and contractors shall not imply or tell LGBTQI juveniles that they are abnormal, deviant, sinful, or that they can or should change their sexual orientation or gender identity." I guess they are "Open and Inclusive" unless you are a Christian.

Sorry for all the misspellings. My spell check doesn't work.
chineham wrote: Tell me John (or BM) What is this quote "spiritual ability" unquote which you both refer to? Since you separate it from 'faith' is it a separate quality or ability which God provides prior to faith? Or do you Wesley guys get a magic wand issued to you along with faith? Or are we back to faith being an entirely human faculty again?
