Nope, you're exactly right, Mike. That's why her eyes made a bee line right to me after she heard her sister talking about having Tarot cards read. I've been kicking myself for not speaking up to my sister-in-law, but also because I feel like I let my wife down as she looked over waiting for me to address it. I told my wife this the next day after she asked what I thought about her sister talking about the cards. Your point is well taken and a good way to look at it. Yes, she does respond to some things, namely this situation because I have forbidden her in the past from having anything to do with psychic readings, etc. that her friends will occasionally have at partys. Some group of friends.
I saw a video of a man being ejected from a school board meeting about a filthy sex book deemed acceptable material for 9th graders. He was arrested for going over two minutes as I recall and he challenged the school officials to publically read sections of the book for all in the room to hear. Not one parent supported him. The audience sat there looking stupid while he was hauled off in cuffs as if he were committing a crime. He called the fellow audience cattle for sitting there quietly. He was right to demand answers. Let's be honest. Americans are sick with sex. It is being shoved down the throats of children and not one person dare to speak out or there will be consequences. The saddest part was not one parent supported him. He should appeal and I hope he removed his child from that school.
The murderous mentality and devotion to Satan is just tragic. I don't know how her poor sister will recover mentally after being forced to commit such a heinous crime, murdering her own sister, and in the most disturbing of ways. Only the blackest of hearts, empty and void, incapable of empathy and remourse could stand there and watch a young lady and mothers throat being cut. Satan has quite the stranglehold on mankind as man has become darker, more violent, and seems to have lost any compassion and regard for human life.

Christians don't do these things, Jim. If you knew what a Christian was, would you be trying to make a link? Oh I forgot, that's what you do, as your 12 year old link attests.
the only thing I'm insulting, Dave, is the making of another idol - - this time not by Catholics.
BDM Ministries wrote: One can certainly appreciate the point that many modern translations are suspect because of the heterodoxy of the translators. Still, insisting on retreat to a less than perfect translation of 1611, as all translations must be (and in fact usually using a 1769 tenth edition of that translation, which alleviates some of the earlier nine editions‚Äô imperfections), is still retreat, not an advance for the Kingdom of God. We can continue to appreciate and use ‚Äúthe KJV (tenth edition)‚ÄĚ without making it into an idol that is as detestable to God as any other idol.
The translators of the 1611 edition, in the preface, stated the need for constant revision to update the language. Yet KJV-Onlyism people criticize the modern translations for doing this very thing. If the KJV is the ‚Äúauthorized‚ÄĚ Bible, then KJV-Onlyites should have a real problem with what the translators themselves said.
I sure wish everyone and anyone would stop using the word "Christian" to identify themselves when they're just not. Reminds me of the guy who decided to murder others at that Colorado abortion clinic to make a statement against murder. "You will know them by their fruits" The line sure has become clear, being easy to identify who really belongs to Him, no matter what they happen to call themselves. So many call themselves Christian but either know nothing of the contents of God's Word or distort and corrupt it in an effort to mold it around their own personal views. I'll never understand how anyone can claim they believe in God and His Word, yet say they don't agree with this part or that part. All in or all out. Period.

This fellow would have been helped if he had done the above, instead of listening or watching whatever media that he did pay attention to.
Well, very unfortunately, and disturbingly, children as young as five are being introduced to s*x education and girls as young as 11 being handed other things for protection, and all without a parents consent. Kindergarteners are being shown very graohic pictures in the name of education and are being indoctrinated into the age of tolerance and diversity. A five year old boy, I fkrget where, was sent home with a book on diversity in his school bag. The father and mother were extrememly upset. The father confronted the school, arguments ensued, and he was arrested and thrown into the city's jail. I understand home schooling just isn't an option for everyone, but I can't imagine having a child within the public school system.
We always think that TV and video games are the worst influence but the books are just as bad. I know the book the man in the article is talking about. The publishers think all teenagers want to read about is sex. I went to our school librarian and specifically asked for something clean, what he gave me was NOT in the slightest.
Dr. Albert Mohler wrote: In our own context, one of the most seductive false gospels is moralism. This false gospel can take many forms and can emerge from any number of political and cultural impulses. Nevertheless, the basic structure of moralism comes down to this ‚ÄĒ the belief that the Gospel can be reduced to improvements in behavior.
Sadly, this false gospel is particularly attractive to those who believe themselves to be evangelicals motivated by a biblical impulse. Far too many believers and their churches succumb to the logic of moralism and reduce the Gospel to a message of moral improvement....
Sounds Quite Eerily Similar To What The Satanic~Vatican "Jesuits" Did To French Protestant Huguenots On The St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre Of 1572 A.D. !
They Had The Civil Authorities In France Do Their Dirty Work Of Murder, Massacre & Mahem Of The French Protestant Huguenots !
And To This Very Day--Nary Is There A Sign Of Any Protestant Huguenot Heritage &-Or Influence In French Society Today !
THE SATANIC~VATICAN "JESUITS" ARE THE POLITICAL & RELIGIOUS DEVILS BEHIND ***ISIS*** YESTERDAY, TODAY & TOMORROW...
UNTIL WE ERADICATE ***ISIS*** FROM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH !

"My History Of THE JESUITS Is Not Eloquently Written, But It Is Supported By UNQUESTIONABLE AUTHORITIES, [And] Is Very Particular And Very HORRIBLE.

Christopher, heavy sand storms (like in Mission Impossible) are extremely rare. When a strong sand storm does hit, perhaps once a year, you shut all the doors and windows, and clean up after as always. Very little sand gets inside unless the windows are cracked open. The air conditioners will need additional cleaning. We are used to having more dust than in some other places, still cars need to be cleaned only 2x a week.The municipality cleans the streets daily. Most high rises have glass facades that are cleaned every month. God bless.-PP.
Because Frank, it often is by so-called Christians that have done these killings , q.v. the SA thread, Man Who Killed Abortion Doctor Executed.

I wonder what government "goodies" were promised by Trump? Lets face it, these guys have been endorsing pro abortion and homosexual candidates for decades, in exchange for govt. goodies. Something seems a bit off here. Am I missing something?
"I Corinthians 14:9: 6-14 Even an apostle could not edify, unless he spoke so as to be understood by his hearers. To speak words that have no meaning to those who hear them, is but speaking into the air. That cannot answer the end of speaking, which has no meaning; in this case, speaker and hearers are barbarians to each other. All religious services should be so performed in Christian assemblies, that all may join in, and profit by them. Language plain and easy to be understood, is the most proper for public worship, and other religious exercises. Every true follower of Christ will rather desire to do good to others, than to get a name for learning or fine speaking."--M. Hen
When I read of Christians dying for the faith, I am reminded of The Pilgrims Progress, in which Christian sang a song about Faithful after his martyrdom at Vanity Fair.
Well, Faithful, thou hast faithfully profest Unto thy Lord; with whom thou shalt be blest, When faithless ones, with all their vain delights, Are crying out under their hellish plights: Sing, Faithful, sing, and let thy name survive; For though they kill'd thee, thou art yet alive!
Jim brother the scripture you quote is a warning to the members at the church of Corinth, for they were a church in big trouble,they were abusing the gifts and Paul was asking them how it was that all were taking in tongues and all interpret it all prophesy,I do believe Paul was (on the context of the scripture you provide Jim) explaining proper conduct. Not in relation to bible translations Jim. By the way,what was the gift of tongues(known languages) given for the benefit of jim?
Well if this fellow even names the name of Christ or has ever been with those who name His name, then Jim from Lincoln with call it Christian activism and the rest of the media will say it is the fault of the extremest Christians that incited this fellow in some way.
My guess is this will be the way this is played out.
