2 Kings 22:13 Go ye, enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.
2 Kings 22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college and they communed with her.
2 Kings 22:15 And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,
2 Kings 22:16 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:
edit: background- Everyone had forgotten the books of Moses, and Josiah the young King found the book of the law and read it. NOBODY knew what to, and the priests consulted Huldah for guidance

I agree that Biden and the RCC are interested in money, but the RCC will step up to the plate from time to time. Not just in the Irish vote, but even when it will hurt them in the geopolitical pocketbook

More than 3.2m people were asked whether they wanted to amend the country's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. Government ministers have said they believe it will pass, while prominent "no" campaigners have conceded defeat." (BBC) Looks like Ireland has voted to go to hell. ======================= "A "transgender baptism" service is to be considered by the Church of England" The wicked CofE is also going to hell. - Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide are an unbiblical unchristian bunch of religious hypocritical reprobates.
While Im disheartened the vote in Ireland is running 2 to 1 for gay marriage, Im comforted to know that not all of Ireland/ UK arent lost(though it seems like it on days like this)

The sodomites seem to see things different when it comes to their sins because God made them this way and He just wants them to be happy. The god of the 21st century.
Not really, its an indicator of be given over to violate nature and creation
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Ah, the joys of using a tablet, which I'm foregoing at the moment. As you see it isn't the Jerusalem Post, so I'm not that familiar with the source of the article. Just by looking at the title of one article it might be more liberal than the Jerusalem Post. Anyway, I found the article interesting. Hmm, some of the reference articles at the end of this one look quite interesting! No matter what the occupant of
Thats an old article, since the RCC has received control of some of those discussed sites. Which is no big deal because Israel wants the RCC, Orthodox and Armenian churces to handle those. Really what was at issue was control of the Citadel & tunnel location, and the Israelis used their overwhelming influence and dominance to keep that. They needed complete authority in order to relocate the Palestinians living in that neighborhood.
Notable is that the site is also just outside the Dung gate, an important location for Western Wall security

If unbelievers put as much effort and thought into understanding the THEORY of evolution as they do sabotaging Creation, they would realize what a faulty theory evolution is. Instead they support a theory they dont understand as an excuse not to believe in GOD.
Unfortunately, some Christians see the vast support evolution receives from the lost, and they are too timid or ignorant to confront the world in this lie, so they take the easy way out. They believe in both
Dispensationalism was dying out when Palestine became a nest of secular violence instead of the marking of the Rapture in the years after 1967, but Billy Graham revived the dream. So it doesnt surprise me his daughter still holds on to it. There is an old saying, everyone wants to go to heaven, but most are too afraid to die to get there
Thus the Rapture is a seductive heresy even granting a 1000 yrs to rule over the unbelieving mortals that made you bake cakes you didnt want to bake

Oh good, Jim is in the room. Perhaps you can offer your educated perspective on why this happens
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee...
To canonize a Saint, the RCC requires miracles after the persons earthly passing. The process is more than just works, it involves doctrine, holiness and as I said 'miracles.' While a martyr can be venerable, and beautified, even they require at least one miracle before Sainthood
Thats the same justification atheists use to deny Christianity. They see Christians sin, and conclude they arent against sin. Between you me and the lamp post, I think the RCC an an institutional policy spent centuries looking the other way just to have more control over their sinful employees...call it spiritual extortion..btw: Conservative Churches do this with their members too...so there is plenty of guilt to go around
As Paul says
Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.... Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
