By the way, Frank, WND articles are the biggest pain to read with their intrusive, full page pop-up ads. I had to keep hitting the back button, and quickly scroll back to where I left off reading, and read as fast as I could before the page was taken over again. I had to do that about five times. Beck must be short on funds to allow such cheesy, low rent pop-ups. Super annoying, every single time SA links to his sites articles.
Hi Frank, thanks. Always a great point about Muslim owned bakeries, etc., ...never a peep, because they, and everyone else are off-limits.
I was thinking, after reading your comment, that it seems to me, since the Christian owned bakers, and other service based businesses have been gaining some traction in the courts, the LGBTQ's have taken to a different angle/scheme. Their new angles may not be earning them the same quick cash, but it seems to be suiting their agenda, in their continued fight against God. The new angles being the war against basic religious views that now qualify as hate speech, bigotry, and intolerance, and also, this new pronoun nonsense, both of which are being used to take down anyone who doesnt comply, and it's working out well for them.
I'm so glad that the State's Attorney General is persuing this, and that Liberty First has joined in the fight. The San Antonio council votes 6-4, banning Chic-Fil-A for their religious views, yet, if this business denied service to any customers for their religious views, the same council would have freaked out, and filed their own lawsuits as they cried foul, for their intolerance and bigotry. Hipocrites. Crazy times.
Hi John, as far as I'm aware, that's it, and what the arguments are based upon. I guess if there were any clear scriptures, there wouldn't be the arguments.
The Apostles exercised all of the gifts, on-demand, it seems, as they announced the good news, as signs that Jesus was the prophesied One; The Savior, but it seems the gifts continued on within the church, considering Paul's instructions on decency, order, and false prophets, etc. The completion of the canon of scripture? The resurrection, and Jesus appearing to the Apostles? Seems subjective in relating those to "when that which is perfect is come". Could be, but like I said, it seems to me that the gifts were to continue on.
Problem is that the Charismatics and Pentecostals, etc, still approach the gifts of The Spirit, as being on-demand, as made available to the Apostles, and that's what I disagree with. I also disagree that tongues are still the sign and evidence of being filled with The Holy Ghost, which disillusions many when they refuse to be forced to start babbling their new "prayer language".
John, only have a minute, so can't look up any scriptures right now, or say as much as I'd like, but cessationists base their claim on the gifts ceasing and failing on Paul's words: "...when that which is perfect is come". Personally, I think the interpretation is subjective, but applied as being, The Christ, the perfect one, the redeemer, and His incarnation, in this case.
Not relating anything you don't know already, I'm sure, but just wanted to chime in real quick. I'm not sure if there are any other "prooftexts" used or not.
âMany of my fellow Christians tell me that homosexuality is a sin. Maybe so, but itâs not my sin. Me, I feel that heterosexuality is the human norm, but there are harmless variants outside the norm and, you know, who cares?â
Andrew Klavan Oct 15, 2010:
"I donât agree that homosexuality offends God (if it did, he wouldnât let them write all the good show tunes) but I love the rabbiâs classically Jewish sweetness and compassion, his willingness to negotiate with God to try to get the Big Guy to see things from our perspective a little. I was also taken aback by the idea â which he ascribes to Pat Robertson and other evangelicals â that homosexuality is âthe greatest threat to marriage and the family.â Comes as a surprise to me. Frankly, the greatest threat to my shockingly blissful marriage has always been heterosexuality â namely mine and its indiscriminate attractions. Am I missing something here?"
Nobody here was wrong at the time, so are you saying that his eyes have since been opened, he's repented, and now speaks against sodomy, and the like; everything he previously defended, and shrugged off as being no big deal? I hope that's the case...that would be wonderful.
Genesis 28:18 18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
Good morning Jim, I don't think there was any mention of Melchizedek setting up a pillar, unless I missed it. I watched the video, and was surprised to see what Mr Shukron was considering a pillar, but then read that the pillar was merely the stone that Jacob had used as his pillow that night, which explained the size.
At any rate, I suppose it's a stretch, since like you said, there's no writing or identifying marks, etc., so who knows. The area was definitely used for animal sacrifice, and a lot of it, apparently, given the wide channel, and the holes cut into the blocks of stone to tie the animals to, etc. I also noticed the olive press integrated into the stone slab, so it seems it was an active, well used area anyway.
Interesting take, but taking into consideration that Satan isn't omnipresent, I'm not sure how it can be interpreted as Satan himself; the being. I find it doubtful that Satan would waste the time he has left on anyone other than those who have the means to bring his master plan to fruition.
I take it to mean all that Satan represents; resist evil; resist the evil ones; resist their fiery darts...resist, keep ourselves in full armor, always, and they'll flee once they realize there's just no way in.
What do you think? Just seems to me that if Satan Himself was making the rounds, pestering us commoners who can't really do a whole lot for him, it wouldn't be great time management on his end.

Ridicilous. The trans pronouns are above, and it's not like anyone picks one they feel suits them best, and sticks with it...they're fluid. School teachers are ordered to address the confused kids by their gender pronoun, or be fired for being a hateful, intolerant bigot. Thing is, the kids feelings can, and do change throughout the day, so they need to tell these teachers how they're to address them at any given moment. Just one more angle where the kids know they can control the adults.
Interesting how sodomy,the trans nonsense, and all of the rest of the LGBTQ's have steamrolled over this nation, and how a simple signature from OBamas hand, that allowed same gender marraige, got it all going. They went from hiding in closets, to writing the rules, infecting the public schools, duping ignorant society, and demanding reparations.
"We just want to love and marry whom we choose, and that's all...we don't have any agendas". Yeah, right.
"Lightfoot, the Tribune reported, believes that âthere are very few of us that have been actually naturally born here,â and thinks that Trump âtargeted every single community that doesnât stand for the same values that he has.â
"Lightfoot also explained why she wants to subvert the law: âIâm a black lesbian married with a wife and child.... Every demographic that I am and that I care about has been under attack for the last 3Â˝ years.â
Really, Lightfoot? Very few Americans are natives, and were born elsewhere, so the majority of us are immigrants? What a foolish woman, and comment.
Black lesbian, with a wife and child? Poor kid.
Every liberal Democrat, the liberal media, and even the OBama administration were vocally against open borders, illegal immigrants, and were all for a wall. Now, because they hate a man...Trump, they've flip-flopped, and are bamboozling the American public with crys of bigotry, hatred, and outrageous lies of inhumane, concentration camp-type housing for the very same illegals these people all wanted out just a few years ago. They feign outrage, and compassion for the very same detainees that they've refused to appropriate funds for. Hipocrites. The American public is getting played.

Always glad to see that you're paying attention to the sermons, John. I hope one day that you come full circle, and realize that straddling the fence with Roman Catholicism just doesn't jive with, and is anti-thetical to biblical Christianity. God warns very sternly against what they do and teach, and makes clear their fate. I hope you see this clearly one day, turn, and never look back.
Oh my goodness...how incredibly heartbreaking, and not how I wanted to begin the day, feeling this way, that is. Shooting and lighting men, women, children, babys, and the elderly on fire to burn alive???
I realize this is far from being the first story of its kind, but I'll never become callous to these sorts of heinous crimes. I just can't believe the level of pure evil that mankind is capable of. Just as disturbing is the fact that afterwards, there's no doubt in my mind that these men celebrate with high-fives, big smiles, and sleep soundly that same night. I can't comprehend such hatred or emptiness. Woe to them all. Poor, poor villagers.
Exclusionary, tolerance, censor, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, equality, diversity, acceptance, human rights, respect, discrimination...some of the sodomite/LQBTQ favorite words used in their war against the family unit, anyone who takes issue with their lifestyle of choice, and, oh yeah, God Himself.
Woe to those who call God a liar, such as the likes of Steve Buttigieg, and any other so-called, Christian homosexuals. Also, those Democrats who are, all of a sudden, attempting to incorporate their "faith" into their politics in order to scavenge votes from the "Christian" community in their desperation. Woe to those who call God a liar, use Him for their own nefarious agendas, and dismiss His clear commands and warnings for personal choice/lust, and to secure positions of power, by way of the support of such darkness.
I cringe when I hear these Presidential hopefuls quoting scripture all of a sudden, and the likes of Booker, etc., telling America how important his faith is to him. Or, the likes of Nancy Pelosi quoting a verse of scripture, to feign being some gentle, compassionate, caring Christian woman. Puke.
I hope to God that the scales fall from their eyes one day, because I don't wish an eternity separated from God on anyone.
Thank God, but I also hope they're able to track down all of the children being horribly abused by their monsters. The photos and videos were described as being disturbingly horrific. Imagine having to be the law enforcement officials, and the future jurors who will have to see those graphic images, and have them burned into their minds? I can't imagine how a person would hold it together, and deal with it.
Poor, poor little kids. Woe to their abusers, and disgusting viewers, along with the servers owners and web masters who maintain this dark, deviant, wicked server out of NYC.
Many are without God, but most still aren't capable of such things, so it takes a certain level of darkness within to be able to cross such sinister lines.
I would love, love, love, to visit Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the wailing wall, and all of the ancient sites; Mount of Olives, Golgotha, etc., etc. I understand that some sites, and presumed paths are subjective, but just to be where The Son of The Living God walked this Earth, visited, preached, and the same general paths that He probably walked at one time or another, along with being able to see much of what He actually looked at, etc., would be numero uno on my bucket list.
I'd like to plant my feet on the land where it all began, and the good news took root; where God chose to incarnate Himself in the man, Christ Jesus, introduce Himself, tell all of the good news he brings, and that He came to suffer and die so that we might be saved, and have life, life abundantly; life eternal.
Do our lives, our speech, and all we do, reflect that we are in Him, and He in us...that we are His? Sure, we can believe, have faith, and be filled with regret when we sin, but is it superficial, or do we yearn to serve Him, serve others, and truly strive to become like Him, no matter the personal cost? Do we allow our flesh to rule, or are we guided by our spirit, which wants to do what's good, and right, and holy? Are we slaves to pride and emotions, or true servants of The Most High?

You sound very close as a family, and I can tell that you love your sisters, for a brother to be taking part in having fun with them. Don't see that all too often, and I really like the bible character costumes, and re-enactments, I'm assuming. Don't lose that softer side, because real men have softer sides, and aren't afraid to let the world see them.đ
