Big whoop for them...does this mean that we should applaud them for being so righteous? They are instruments of lewdness and pride and just because they won't go with the "bathroom bill",they are now the moral fabric of the nation. lol Lady_Virtue-exactly. Sadly,many will pat them on the back and hold them up as role models.
I think that once you have trusted in a man for a service and have found him to be only self serving,leaving you with yet another mess to have to get resolved,you will become all the more aware of how much more it is important to depend on God alone. If Trump,at minimum,would deal with the abortion issue,that would make him the choice but talk is cheap and he is cunning. We are under Judgment and we have no good candidates. We can pray that God will still be merciful and even hear our prayers but unless we repent of them,there is no hope for us. This nation has been murdering babies and sacrificing its children to Satan for a long time now to a point where there is no denying that God's Judgment is in place. It's not surprising that the 2 choices which we have are merely representative of who we have become as a nation- the woman who wants to be a man and the man who is a womanizer and uses them as objects.
A lot of religion classes may not use the Word of God. I suppose that even if the teacher isn't saved that,as long as Scripture is rightly quoted,it can all be to God's glory. For we know that His Word never goes out void!
I don't think that not voting is as critical as not praying. Neither candidate is a good choice. Thankfully,God can use whomever takes office to his end,even if it's for further judgment. At least,Hillary is transparent.We know where she's coming from. I'm more wary of the one who is on stage most of the time.
"religious myths and proselytizing" That's a rather subjective statement. One cannot separate the Ark from the account and one cannot be accused of proselytizing if they are merely presenting the Gospel. No one comes to the Father unless he is drawn and repents. Good news for the atheist- Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. The rest of you can stay in bondage if that is your resolve. No one is twisting arms. Moreover,no one wants to or is able to twist arms. No one make anyone a Christian and no one would want to if they could. Steve,clever.
Jim, "...Mr Trump is so full of himself that his acceptance speech went for 76 minutes--" lol If he gets in office,the only thing he'll have time for is speeches...almost like the present one. Maybe he'll get presented with a sash and rhinestone tiara too. He could just keep with the theme of the pageant which seems to regularly pervade his presentations. The expression on Hillary's face complements the accusation which was made. Ladybug,agree. We are under judgment and absolutely need to be on our knees before God and repent.
The guy says he's "proud to be 'gay'". Does it occur to anyone how foolish it is that one would actually stand up in public and express their pride through their intimate proclivities? It's too much information from anyone,even if they have natural affections. Allie,nice play on words.
Interesting,for. Thanks for the input. Christopher,I totally agree with you. "I really could care less" actually expresses the opposite of that which is meant as do those double negatives!! 2 negatives make a positive
SF,lost people make foolish choices. I know that I did but when I first saw her picture,I was thinking that it was one of his daughters. Maybe we will wind up with a "first girl" of the white house or the first woman who wants to be a man,as you had made mention. ...doesn't seem like there will be any more interest in tuning into listen to what the next President will say any more than in caring to listen to the present one.
.... his Catholic running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence I thought that Trump had connections with the RC. No surprise here. Maybe the faux pa will be more "accepting" now. Some show. This nation is so under judgment. What's scary,is all of the Christians who are so duped by it.
B.Warely, lol It would be funny to hear/see Bill get up and make a comparable speech. I guess we could just tune out the whole thing. It's not promising either way. ...better to just focus on those and that which are immediately around us as to we may make a difference for Christ. Politics is just another form of "entertainment" now. Yawn.
Moses,you may have a point. I recall reading other English versions which have dropped the word "sodomite",for instance, and have replaced other references with phrases like temple "prostitute" so as to "make" the Bible read as though God no longer has a problem with sodomy. This may very well have been instrumental in many churches accepting same sex "marriage" and gender confused preachers.
So this is the voice that I heard when I was tuning into the radio to catch the weather last night. I was wondering why it was sounding like some lame beauty contestant rhetoric. I was thinking that the radio signal must have got interrupted with something else. I'm not trying to be funny. This is what it sounded like. If Trump wants to gain the votes of more conservatives,he might want to try to keep this gal off the "stage". She is not helping his cause.
Thank you,Kev. I'm sure that he probably did twist it. Thanks for the link;I will try to check it out. That lost people misinterpret Scripture/twist spiritual songs is really nothing new. Unsaved Harvard professors with degrees in Theology are more ignorant of the Bible than new born babes in Christ. Apart from His Spirit,we will have no true understanding. The natural man cannot begin to comprehend the things of God.
Jacque,so refreshing and encouraging to read your post. Andrea,just because a man can lust if someone is dressed modestly doesn't mean that people should be a stumbling block to that end by not dressing modestly,especially Christians. Besides,someone trying to use their imagination to that end is better than others giving them a lot more info than is necessary.At least,we would not be accessory to the deed. And I think that Jacque did say that there are other times when they can enjoy the beach. SteveR,live TV may not be the answer.Many don't watch it even if they have internet. And,who watches,when they are sleeping? Not sure it's for us to figure it out. I'm sure God has this covered.
Well Kev,while the lyrics of the song make sense to Christians,"Amazing Grace" does omit Jesus. Sometimes people will add the "Praise God" part but singers typically don't. And "God" is often used subjectively. Maybe this is why so many secular singers are quick to include it in their repertoire. Sadly,the business of contemporary christian music has infiltrated many churches to the point that it is a major consideration to how they will use their funds. They must have enough money to cover copyright laws and since the music is always "evolving",one must continually pay fees to play the music. Hymnals are becoming more and more obsolete. I understand that "Amazing Grace" is not a contemporary song but,that it omits Jesus,the source of our grace,is much akin to CCM.
