Allie, (unless your question was rhetorical) its a process of federalizing the police. Unfortunately, our own people no longer know their own form of gov to understand what that means. But police powers are designated by the indvl states under local sheriffs who are elected. so the sheriff has accountability locally to those he serves who he sees at the grocery store and dentist office. if their land gets run over by foreigners, he knows because he passed by the old man's house for 30 years.

I like John Gill's commentary on this - "that which is born of the flesh is flesh", carnal and corrupt, and such are all the sons of Adam by natural generation; see Job 14:4.
yep and the hypocrisy in Romans 7 is that men have made themselves enforcers of the law that they themselves cannot achieve, making their sin ever more apparent. they rule over others with an iron rod, hoping this will reduce God's wrath on them. Let's take the log out of our own eyes first, yet without Christ, we find that we cannot.
carnal man does not want to surrender his autonomy and will try to work His way to God with the law.... in this case Christ had to blind Him and get His attention.

Nevertheless, I can't help but think that the manifestation of exemplifing who is a sodomite and who isn't is at play here. For some blasted reason, our country wants to eliminate the differences by dressing men to boys to girls to boys to look like "pajama boy". Look it up , it fits our " rapid retreat team" military style. But this will go away the first time a carrier task force is sunk by the Chinese navy. Prayers too all this good Wednesday.
its a commnst sweep. that's why they are doing it. heard a gent talk about coming out of commnsm , coming out of their meetings to become a Christian and said the meetings was all run by feminism. its their modus for breaking up the family. its just old style propaganda.

yep, raising concerns of her ecumenical tendencies is good, but denying the ecumenical movement of sodomy is just as neglectful. prepare the people of God, their time comes too. And also do not underestimate the purifying work of God in the lives of people like Davis. God's Sovereign hand is there, and He may be "putting her through the fire" to teach her, but this will come in days of quiet, not in the middle of the papparozi! Of course if we had Davis here, then our dear sister Ladybug could disciple her.
Now what of men and women who think they have perfect doctrine, when on that day of testing deny Christ and crumble? Lord let that not be! Fox's Book of Martyrs and other books attest to men and women of God who remained faithful. And those who endure to the end will be saved.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven, give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.
‚ÄúThat ‚Äėas the credit of the old Books‚Äô ([Jerome] meaneth of the Old Testament) ‚Äėis to be tried by the Hebrew Volumes, so of the New by the Greek tongue,‚Äô he meaneth by the original Greek. If truth be tried by these tongues, then whence should a Translation be made, but out of them? These tongues therefore, the Scriptures we say in those tongues, we set before us to translate, being the tongues wherein God was pleased to speak to his Church by the Prophets and Apostles.‚ÄĚ preface to KJV 1611
"The translation of the Seventy dissenteth from the Original in many places, neither doth it come near it, for perspicuity, gravity, majesty; yet which of the Apostles did condemn it? Condemn it? Nay, they used it, (as it is apparent, and as Saint Jerome and most learned men do confess) which they would not have done, nor by their example of using it, so grace and commend it to the Church, if it had been unworthy of the appellation and name of the word of God.‚ÄĚ preface to KJV 1611

pastors will be told they have to do sodomite marriages or to shut down their 501c3 corporation. they will also be told that sodomites will have to be considered to hire for jobs in the church. if the lawn mower comes dressed like a transvestite and acting inappropriately, if the derelict is fired, he will be brought to court....
now they can recruit. the lifestyle by its nature must recruit. its a resurrection of ancient rome. remember Sodom and Gomorrah? they went door to door, same with many today. besides losing their moral position to be role models to younger boys, what are parents going to do when there is subtle flirtation going on? society was built on giving distinction to male/female and then giving separate facilities so that each person's dignity is intact. what are boys going to have to hide themselves like school girls when they change clothes? what a recipe for disaster!
well, Jim, I'm talking with girls that have been r@ped because they are white. families that have their kids beat up at school because they are white. its not 1955 anymore. I'm meeting black folks displaced by the muslems and illegals. what a mess this is. our politicians refuse to obey the law, create austerity and joblessness, and use welfare as a carrot among the enslaved.
