Thatâ€™s the excuse for 233 apostate translations put out since 1880; thatâ€™s better than two per year. You mean â€śthe Bibleâ€ť gets out of date every six months? And not one of them claims to â€śupdateâ€ť the version before it: the ASV didnâ€™t update the RV; the RSV didnâ€™t update the ASV; the NASV didnâ€™t update the RSV (or the ASV, for that matter). No, every single one of them tried correcting one Book.

I think they actually hate Ted Cruz more. But Trump is in first place, so they are mostly firing at him. To give perspective on what ruling class establishment Republicans think, (from CBS News) 2 days ago John Boehner called Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh," and said he was a "miserable s.o.b" though he used the real words. Cruz said he never worked with him, that he met him 2 or three times in his life, and spoke few words, only pleasantries.
This is also from the same news: "Boehner said he was on friendly terms with Republican front-runner Donald Trump, adding that he often played golf with the New York business mogul and billing their friendship as one between "texting buddies"

I would tell those around me that Mohammed was a false prophet who spoke to demons and he was a murdering pedophile. I think that might do it. And of course, I would tell them about my loving Savior and God and what He did for mankind.
Frank, it would probably be best to tell them that first, they're kinda quick with the knife, you know.
From the news: "A lot of the atheists and some of the secular media were claiming for the last couple of years now, that we're using tax-payer money â€¦ to build the ark," Ham said. "Well, the tourism tax incentive didn't even get approved until this past Monday, so it has nothing to do with building the ark. This is a performance-based incentive, and it's only a rebate on the sales taxes paid within the facility once you open, and it's up to a certain maximum over 10 years."
Even with this, the rebate is of sales taxes that wouldn't even exist without the existence of the Ark. The tourism will be nothing but a plus for Kentucky. People eat, they need places to stay, they go to other places to spend their money, etc.
On top of it all, this is a great physical argument against evolutionism. Why did Noah build an Ark? When did the flood happen? How could all those animals fit? What are the results of the flood? People will ask questions. Seeds of truth will be planted. Many churches have watered down the creation account, which has reduced Christian influence in the culture, which in large part is why we are where we are today. Every farmer knows soil needs preparation before seed can take root. That's the purpose of this Ark.

I do, at times, cause a lot of problems; even though I am saved from the dominating sin nature. Thoughtlessness can be a besetting scourge. I so want the mind of Christ in every area of my actions. The Lord's thoughts are precious toward me and both of you. "Add New Comment." I hope I can remember that next time. Take care.
Thanks for the comeback, Yawner. Appreciated much. Eph 1:2
Rodney K. wrote: Yawner, I think someone else used Mike's moniker. Mike is as solid a Christian as any on this forum. There's no way he would post something like that.
My apologies, Rodney, sometimes the old man in me wins a battle. Not caring what Yawner thinks was indeed my response to him for his response to my post. When he answered the post of mine with his spam, I did get annoyed for a time. It doesn't cut it for him to say it was intended for the saints in general. A "saints in general" post can be added by clicking on "add new comment" rather than "reply to comment."
Aside from which, spamming can hardly be seen as a Christian habit, and shouldn't be allowed. It's seems like the "look at me" syndrome. If yawner doesn't think me Christian, I'll probably be able to deal with it.

Taking advantage of emotionally unstable people for financial gain. A woman at the head of a company that kills unborn girls and boys. Now this. May God have mercy on her never dying soul.
A small disagreement here, Allie. PP profits most from abortion, so it wouldn't be to their advantage to stop procreation. Their profit is in killing the living.
John UK wrote: The gospel is very simple, and you do not need to be a theologian to receive eternal life. Even in the OT, God says, "Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God and there is none else". It is a command. Same in the NT, where Paul says, "Be ye reconciled to God". God was, in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, therefore BE RECONCILED TO GOD. It is a command. Jesus says, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." A sinner must look to Jesus, as the Jews in the desert looked towards a bronze serpent on a pole. (John 3:14-15) Why must men make the gospel so complicated that it is tantamount to actually shutting the door of heaven in their faces? It's sort of like the Pharisees, and the way they went on. The Grahams however, for all their faults, have taken the simple gospel message all around the world, in obedience to the Great Commission, and have preached this word of reconciliation to vast multitudes of people, and in heaven there will be a great number of people who were converted at a crusade meeting, who will praise the Lord Jesus Christ for dying for them at Calvary, and for making eternal life so easy to access.

Please, refrain from assuming I care what you think.
â€śIt matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control,â€ť Clinton said.
The problem for her is, there is a limit to the amount of the theft of liberty the people will allow. She's a good example of an educated low-information voter.
