The Amash amendment would have denied the NSA the ability to snoop on Americans without a warrant or National Security letter under Section 215 of the Patriot Act. The amendment by Michigan congressman Justin Amash failed by a mere seven-vote margin in the House of Representatives. In the wake of the vote, Amash has promised to sponsor legislation to ban the NSA from collecting telephone and Internet data on American citizens.
Using NSA PowerPoint presentations provided by whistleblower and former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Greenwald explained: ‚ÄúOne presentation claims the [XKeyscore] program covers...
Oh, so true, Angela! I wish more people would pick up the book, Come, Let Us Reason book from somewhere! This logic book was done by Christians. All too many logicians worship logic as a god rather than a tool given by God. No, you won't find too much material on logic for free on the Internet, then doesn't have a writer who has contempt for God, nor in college text books either.
The NSA "National-Spook/Snoop-Agency" Has Been Reading Our Snail-Mail Too; Since The End Of WW-II, Let Alone EVERY E-mail Sent By Every U.S. Citizen !
If That Doesn't Send Chills Down Your Spine, Maybe The FACT They Can ALSO See & Hear Every U.S. Citizen--Via Their Cell-Phones--While They're EVEN In The Bathroom: WHETHER THE U.S. CITIZENS' CELL-PHONES ARE ON OR OFF !
The NSA "NATIONAL SATANIC AGENCY" 'DEVILS' ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A BUNCH OF PEEPING-TOMS & GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED VOYEURS !
And They Won't Be Satisfied Or Content Until They Implant EVERY U.S. CITIZEN With Their Pre-Planned & Prepared "Computer-Tracking CHIP":
*IN EVERY U.S. CITIZENS' RIGHT-HAND OR FOREHEAD !
Does That Sound Familiar To TRUE CHRISTIANS Reading This Posted Comment ?
"And [T]he[y] Cause[d] All, Both Small And Great, Rich And Poor, Free And Bond, To Receive A Mark IN Their Right Hand, Or IN Their Foreheads;
And That No Man Might Buy Or Sell, Save He That Had THE MARK, Or THE NAME Of THE BEAST, Or THE NUMBER Of HIS NAME.
HERE IS WISDOM. LET HIM THAT HATH UNDERSTANDING COUNT THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST: FOR IT IS THE NUMBER OF A MAN; AND HIS NUMBER IS SIX HUNDRED THREESCORE AND SIX (666)." REVELATION 13:16-18
I remember hearing RC Sproul once say that Christians need to be taught logic, and after reading some of the flippant comments posted here of the government spying on private citizens, I wholeheartedly agree. It's no wonder we've become the butt of the world's jokes as we sound like we really don't have a clue on how to incorporate Biblical principles into everyday life and its problems. Christians who have been persecuted throughout history should be the first to warn others of evil. Instead we act like it's no big deal to have the anti-Christ gov't spying on its citizens. Have we truly lost the culture war? It sounds to me like some have already surrendered without a fight. As for me, I'll continue to shine light on the darkness and sound the warning for those with ears to hear. In Lord Jesus Name. Amen.
But, yes, the Apostle Paul used every opportunity to spread the Gospel, even if it was in the circumstances that he planned or wished for, example:
21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you. 22 All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar's household. 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.---NASB.
So, even Caesar's household got to hear the Gospel, because of Paul's contact with Roman soldiers--as a captive.
What you have to worry about is Google reading your emails, but Google staff needs Christ as much or more than the NSA.
