And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Gal 5:24
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20
It is a difference of being spiritually crucified versus being physically crucified to wood and nails.
John UK wrote: Reminds me of the mess the Tories have to clean up after the Labour Party have been in power for a while. I don't know what rules you have in the States for overturning bad laws, but it sure seems that a new Pres will have his work cut out getting things back to some sort of normality.
When a piece of legislation becomes law, the law is endeared by politicians and they are extremely reluctant to repeal it. For example, the Patriot Act was suppose to be temporary. But Obama loves the Patriot Act just as much as Bush did- the same for Democrats as well as the Republicans. Our current Congress thinks that we cannot survive without the Patriot Act.
"So, no matter which party's candidate wins the Presidency, in comparison, President Obama could end looking very good -- from a secular point of view."
Yeah, for looking "good" for impeachment for all the scandals under his administration piled high with the rainbow flag planted on top.

Why wait until 2017. Lets offer him a early retirement so that he can immediately move to Kenya. Before Kenya's next election, maybe he and the VP could have a talk radio show-"Good Morning in Kenya, The Joe and Barack Al-taqiyya Show".
I just saw the two Planned Parenthood videos and could not finish watching either one. It is frightening that in this country we have liberals who are just as vile and wicked as the SS Doktor Josef Mengele and an apologists/propogandist Joseph Goebbels in the form of Hillary Clinton. My father's generation fought the Nazis in Europe. Now we have this scum in our country. If these women are not unrepentant and beg for forgiveness, may gnashing of teeth begin.
I don't know their motives, only God knows. And His Judgement overrides yours. And as I said earlier, ALL men's deeds are filthy rags, including Abe Lincoln. If Jefferson Davis or Stonewall Jackson is in the Kingdom of Heaven, is this going to perturb you and shun them?
Whenever someone says that a man-made state/political entity has the moral high ground, it reminds me of Isaiah 64 of men's righteous deeds as filthy rags. Violence and murder are a stench to God regardless which opposing side committed them. Each country/nation has its sinful baggage. You might be disappointed not to find the US Federal Government in the Kingdom of God. As for the Confederacy, is dead and buried along with its issue slavery. Why don't we all move on fight slavery that exists today that is found in the sex trafficking or economic cronyism found in plutocracy.
30,000 Union soldiers died in Confedrate POW camps. 26,000 Confederate soldiers died Union POW camps. Since you are a Northern transplant living in the South, you do not comprehend how some Southerners hated the Federal troops who pillaged farms and raped not only white women but also black women. Historians have documented this from government records.
That flag flying a lot not only in the South but also in the North and the West. It is ironic when liberals tell you that an item is bad and you can't have it-sales go up. I guess that people are tired of political correctness.
70,000 more Muslim refuges coming to this country from Syria. Who is bringing them over? Obama and "Christian" relief organizations (Lutheran, Catholic, and others) for grant money (our tax dollars). Some communities are organizing grassroots to petition their county and city officials to reject mass injection of Muslim refugees in their communities. Nothing wrong with immigration when done within the law. But this regime (Muslim Brotherhod friendly) in DC, is lawless. It is unfortunate that these marines were not able to arm themselves. Then there would be only one dead, the perp.
@ 2 Tim. 3:16 from midwest Welcome to the SA comments. I didn't mean to lump you in with little finger. I become suspicious when we have the US Attorney General saying that "We need to brainwash the people" into gun control.
little finger wrote: The provision to quote "bear arms" in modern times comes from a historic presence of danger and lack of policing which no longer applies to modern society as can be perceived in other countries.
Hmmm, lets see here...some thugs just broke into my home. They are about to cut my throat and molest my wife. Do I call 911 and wait 20 minutes for the police to arrive? Or do I pull the trigger on my .45 pistol?
I notice that you and 2 Tim. 3:16 are new commentators to this site and only to this topic.
