The evolutionists will say that the process takes billions of years, but even with that, it should be an ongoing process in which we should see these creatures of old evolving at any given moment.
You're not supposed to ask questions like that, Christopher.

I am surprised that all the evil this person does, he cannot be stopped. He WILL and DOES steal from innocent people, IN THE NAME OF GOD too, how disgusting. If a person steals from stores, they get arrested. I guess stealing via TV is ok though. Where is our judicial system? Todd Coontz alias,,ANTICHRIST.
Of more concern than Coontz's audacity is the foolishness of the people who still think getting double or triple their money back is their due. He would get nowhere without their eager anticipation.
Torgel wrote: When you lose your trust in God, ie faith, then God removes the ability to trust which otherwise is a blessing among God's people. America and the western nations have lost all trust/faith in God just as Israel did. Blessings such as the gift of faith and the establishment of true biblical churches together with the true worship of God are removed from these nations. Whys should God bless a people which rejects Him and His Son. ---
Is there a biblical conditional covenant that says God gives the gift of faith, but will take it away if you lose it? Sounds very mysterious.

As I said, probably Home Schoolers will be one the main beneficiaries of Common Core, because they adopt some guides, perhaps some textbooks, which haven't been picked yet, etc. I don't know about HW Bush, but Jeb really likes it!

From the news: "After catching multiple so-called ObamaCare â€śnavigatorsâ€ť on camera urging people to lie on federal forms, Project Veritas released another video exposing more fraud and lawlessness surrounding the healthcare takeover aimed at surreptitiously advancing Big Government."
This is easy to understand. "Fraud," "lawlessness," "lie," "healthcare takeover," and "Big Government" are synonyms.

1) the farmers aren't happy about more government nuisance, Jim. Sorry to disappoint.
From your link to the news blog: "BRUNSWICK, Maine â€” Rose and Randy Bolton wandered through the Brunswick Farmers Market Tuesday morning, armed with food stamps to buy carrots.
â€śTheyâ€™re fresher, taste better, and you know theyâ€™re homegrown,â€ť said Rose Bolton, eyeing a sea of fruits and vegetables on the town mall. â€śSome of this stuff might have been picked this morning â€¦ you know youâ€™re getting the freshest you possibly can.â€ť
Sure thing, homegrown carrots "picked this morning" in Maine in mid May.

Ok, but a list of verses looks good, you'll have to admit. My JW acquaintance also makes statements, then quotes verses as if in support. Trouble is, they don't often connect to the original statement.

Glad to hear it, penned. No sin, but some do find any joy we might have that doesn't have a regulation directing it, to be questionable.

You would rather accept the teachings of Anabaptists identified as heretics in the 16th century, rather than go back to the Bible 2000 years ago. "immersion" - The unbiblical idea that a specific amount of water is quoted in the New Testament. (2) The erroneous interpretation of the Greek word. "believers baptism" - Used (by Baptists) to exclude the children of covenanted parents. Thus the Covenant of Grace (seed/family) is rejected as God ordained by Baptists.
So we can indeed like Philip and the eunuch, go down into the sprinkle, then come up out of it. Good to know.
