Christopher000 wrote: Mass pollution. The distinction between true Christians and those who just borrow the title is becoming increasingly clear. As a Christian, one is either all in or all out. God provided all we need to know concerning morals and Christian living. He left us a guide book that many never had so we have a major advantage and are left without excuse. We all read the same book; same clear rules and regulations, so that's what I don't understand.
Some don't accept what the words say, so they say the words mean something else. See it all the time. Imo, nothing new. Just moving the application from the confined realm of theology into the world of "gay-marriage battleground." Once it is ok to doubt the plain words of the written Word, why should any result shock?
Jim Lincoln wrote: The Kochs are doing what the Romish Church strongly suggest they do. How much did you here about social obligations when you were a Catholic? Pope Franny is just following in a line of Papal encyclicals. Rerum Novarum Rights and Duties of Capital and Labor .
If you could point to something that says the Kochs are doing what the RCC is telling them what to do, it might be helpful. Also that whatever they are doing is the wrong thing to do, whatever the RCC says. Otherwise I might conclude you don't like them not because they might be Catholic, but because they are political conservatives, and you are merely trying to connect dots that aren't there.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Of course it does! Mike, q.v., (Political Catholicism). Though I think pastor Dabney said it much more forcefully, in In fact, I'm rather sorry I didn't run into that Wikipedia article sooner.
Went through the Wiki article, but couldn't find the Koch Bros. Did I miss them?
Ah Jim, you are trying to draw a connection between "Utah's drug culture" and Mormonism. Do you also see a lack of violent crime in Utah as connected to Mormonism? (rated 45th out of 50 States in terms of violent crime, per the Census Bureau) Seems like if drugs were as big a deal in Mormon Utah as implied, there might just be more violent crimes, which follow drugs like cats follow mice.
Tom wrote: Babies are sinful and evil just like everyone else. It is wrong for abortion to exist but it is also wrong to assume they were purely innocent as if babies deserve heaven. God never treats Children differently than the others. Has God ever spared infants when he executed his judgement? Not according to my memory of the Old Testament. Remember when a group of kids laughed at a prophet's baldness, God summoned a bear to tear them to pieces. God shows no favouritism. That was the point of my comment.
Mark 10:15 "Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."
Amill wrote: Premillennialism, rapture and the thousand year future life with Christ is utter fiction. The added cartoon of floating Christians shows it came from Disneyworld. Amillennialism Is Biblically accurate. True Christians like the Reformers were were Amill.
pennned wrote: not really for me. If I see him using his platform to convince Christians to blend with his religion, then I'll start speaking up. Right now I just see a gentleman there operating by his convictions, not with some kind of hidden motive.
Agreed, penned. Appreciate that you are a thoughtful writer, whether or not we agree on everything.
ladybug wrote: P.O.T. Glenn Beck is an unregenerate sinner who will perish in his sins apart from grace. You prove to be unregenerate as well, as you defend error and attack truth. Delusion is the end result of all who fail to love truth. May the thrice holy, supreme, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent,righteous, merciful God of heaven and earth be merciful to you. "The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished" - THAT is who the one true God is! Sadly, you do not know the God of the Bible as is evidenced by your responses here. May we all lift you before the throne and pray for your deceived soul.
Interesting concept that one has to be a Christian to love truth. Truth about eternal matters, yes. Truth about other things, no. When Beck and Obama speak on an issue, who would you believe might just be speaking the truth?

Better to read what Ben Carson writes, than agenda-driven daily beast noise. Is there something Carson said that you disagree with? Too specific to ask, I suppose. Hey I have an idea: post something about the "Greedy Old Party." You can pretend it has something to do with the RCC, which has nothing to do with Carson, but who cares when dancing is so you? You have a big following here, you know. I know of at least one who lives in Nebraska.
Jim Lincoln wrote: The raise of the Tea Party shows we're in the neo-Confederacy era, which is a dangerous movement, --- The Tea Party, the John Birch Society, and the Fear of ‚ÄúMob Rule‚ÄĚ: An Interview with Claire Conner.
You are starting to sound desperate, Jim. You refuse to connect the dots in that which you support, and instead connect dots where there are none.
penned wrote: I cannot find the secret pretrib rapture in the bible. It certainly would have been convenient if I was able to. The focus of the new testament is the resurrection and judgment, of the suffering church and her testimony to the world.
I hear the term "secret rapture" a lot, usually from the rapture naysayers. Who said it would be a secret? How could such a thing be a secret? Perhaps the naysayers made up "secret rapture," so as to display the taking up as foolishness?
Jim Lincoln wrote: Because the Tea Party movement is a neo-Confederacy movement with a high element of selfishness in it,q.v., Sam‚Äôs Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party. It is not traditional Republican.
You mean the tea party types are selfish and greedy like Democrats and royalist Repubs? Thanks for clearing up the misconception.
