Yes, Shane...I do agree with you and might have misunderstood your initial point. Your last sentence...when I came to the forum, as silly as it sounds, I didn't think Christians fought with one another. I thought everyone pretty much believed the same things and always got along, and was shocked when I began to witness infighting along with some pretty nasty remarks by some who say they are born again. I think this is kind if what you're speaking of? I'm still bothered by it but guess I have got used to it, well, to a degree.
I wasn't singling anyone out. I have opinions, but... Oh wait, I was just going to give you an opinion. Lol. Look, we are of another country. A heavenly Jerusalem. Let's set our minds on the things above, not the things below. Then, our lives and testimonies do the talking for the building up of the kingdom. I assume we all believe that(if we're on this website). Aren't we to stir each other up to good works? In love.
I stand by my earlier comment. The Impostor from Kenya is a politician who worships at the altar of political power. His books and speeches show that he will use references to Christianity and Islam if it will further his political agenda to destroy America and promote godless globalism. He is NOT to be trusted!
I would suppose President Obama, as many, if not most? our Presidents practice "practical" Atheism (Sub 4). This of course is not good for his family or himself, but so it is. Unfortunately many liberals no matter what their perceived religion is, still have problems with such things as The Region: Why [No Western leader] can't tame the Islamists. Baby-face Bush's name could have been put in the Western leader spot, since he was a failure at it. He seems to think that the concept of Democracy was some magic wand that could transform the Muhammadans, and it sure doesn't!
So, UPS it's your opinion, that I don't give facts? I assume you're not going to get too upset that I don't agree with you?

Hey Shane, you do seem to have a disdain for opinions so let me help out. In the realm of politics anything I post here are facts and those who agree with me are factual. Anything Jim from Lincoln posts are opinions and should be relegated as you have said. Hope that clears it up.

There is no evidence that Obama is a Muslim. He was a Muslim until converting to the United Church Of Christ and being Baptized in the United Church Of Christ. Obama never attends a Mosque but instead infrequently attends churches.
Shane and Dorothy, personally, I think it's healthy to discuss the issues of the times, especially as they can be related to the Bible. Yes, the conversations can go south at times, but people are people so it will happen. Many minds with many opinions can stir the pot up pretty good at times, but for many, it's a learning experience and a release. To me, I don't see how the discussions on this forum are any different than those that anyone else has while riding together in a car, having lunch, taking a walk through a park, or wherever. Do you see the conflict? Most of these people are ancient so it's a choice of discussing current issues, or God's word which often results in learning or teaching something, or playing yet another game of bingo to try and win that ever elusive three dollar jackpot along with a bonus bright green knitted scarf that nobody ever claimed from the lost and found basket. Anyway, I've learned quite a bit thanks to the biblically mature people who post here so I would say that God is using them and I'm glad I found the forum when I did. You know, I think some tend to think that posting here is all people do with their time and I can never understand how anyone arrives at that thought. They're like, "instead of talking about all of this, go ou
