""The trusting attitude towards Islam is revealed in the February 2017 poll follows 17 tumultuous years of attacks against Americans motivated or shaped by Islamic ideology throughout the United Statesâ€”from the 9/11 atrocity to the Pulse nightclub attack""
I have a difficult time trusting an institution that thinks the time between Sept 2001 and now is 17 years can conduct a statistically significant poll
imo- this article was designed to inflame Christians

Quoting now from Shaun Willcock of Bible-Based Ministries There are, essentially, three main systems of biblical prophetic interpretation:
See, Frank has to buy some of your books. He has been on the cheapskate hater bandwagon far too long for this to happen, now he begins to mix up what he has read in various places.
c'mon Frank, you cant take it with you. The Lake of Fire doesn't even have ATMs
Frank wrote: Thanks for the reply! There must have been a miscommunication. I didn't say you got your info from there. What I said or meant to say is the sites I noted were historicists and said that doctrine came from the RCC first and foremost. They also went to great lengths to justify their position. I will repeat it below. If anyone wants to find out what these historicists (Mr. and Mrs. JA) believe and why they believe it, they can go to Kingdom Treasure ministries aka, Truth in History Ministries and get the full picture. To be honest, I don't care where you got your end time thoughts from. And, I certainly never even hinted that I was trying to speak for you or your husband. Let me know if you need more clarification.
And it would be nice if y'all bought some books when you visit these websites, especially those who don't tithe & attend a Church
So far, I think I'm the only person here that has provided financial assistance to a website that JA has used for a resource

And a book I read Matthew 1:3 Â And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
Genesis 38:24 Â And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. Â Â Genesis 38:25 Â When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff. Â Â Genesis 38:26 Â And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.
Buckeyes wrote: (TMC) @Ladybug Please try to follow my thinking here. Iâ€™m not annoyed, nor was I speaking about JA in particular (who Iâ€™m happy to have here), nor do I wish to rid these threads of anyone. Thatâ€™s all a strawman arguement. If a board member of the Agenda 21 council came here to specificaly push Pennyâ€™s buttons on many threads over many months, and she always responded and criticized the rest of us for not joining in with her, then I think you would agree that the wisest course for her would be to ignore him. She has obviously not changed his mind. That is all I and others are pointing out. Does that make scense?
Buckeyes, I'm shocked, truly shocked! Have you been reading JAs posts? Even her husband has come to help people understand. If you have been reading them, you would realize that they are for your edification as well to expose me. You should be on your knees in thanksgiving that they take their time and knowledge to share with you.
You need to stop ignoring, and being so ungrateful for, posts by JA, Ladybug and MS.
The Ministry of Propaganda really pulled one on all the Conservative Christians by calling Gorsuch an heir to Scalia.
It turns out Gorsuchs lady Pastor, Rev. Susan Springer, is very pro same sex marriage. Not to mention his Church, St. John's Episcopal Church, is pro gun control, pro immigrant rights, wants to tackle climate change and is a host for LGBT films at the Church
Oh, Did I mention Gorsuch was educated at the finest Jesuit High School in DC?

I'm sure plenty of kids were afraid to speak, too embarrassed to speak, lulled into believing what they were doing was okay, and even threatened in one way or another to keep silent. The general public asks why so many years later, but if they were amongst the abused, they'd understand better. There are a couple of crimes here, and other than the obvious, most children carry over the abuse into adulthood in various forms, from what I've read. Same gender attraction, intimacy issues and shame, varied emotional troubles, distrust of men, etc, etc.
Then could there be similar coverups at Protestant Churches? A leading expert(btw- hired by BJU, hear that moderators, hired by you) on abuse says Evangelicals are worse than Catholics on response

A flag is for a physical Kingdom. There is no physical kingdom of God at the moment and there won't be until Christ returns. So is Christian flag is ridiculous
Disagree A flag can be for a proclamation, like the destruction of enemies

Christopher000 wrote: Just think about how long they were all able to run their little club, Carte Blanche without any fear. I think the main reason the thousands of pedophile priests were simply moved from church to church was to remove the risk of the whole boys club being exposed. Many knew, but they chose to allow the children to be hurt. Another reason, which is a bit more obscure, is because when a priest is ordained, they are said to receive a special power from on high which allows them to order Christ from Heaven and turn the bread and wine into His flesh and blood. Roman Catholic historians have noted that since this special power can never be reverted or recinded, they never knew quite what to do with these priests. The mere thought that even one single pedophile would be allowed to travel the planet, moving from church to church after each incident to hurt children is astonishing.
Where were the parents? I remember 50 years ago every kid in my public school knew about Priests(and Pastors) as potential predators. And we weren't at 1 in 14, we thought it was more like 90%

Instead of complaining about someone else's lack, how about giving advice on the how-to aspects of contributing to the great fight as you see it? What good are vague generalities, scattered hither and yon, unconnected to things said in the threads, other than making the one scattering feel good about the saying of them? How can it even be followed? In what way is that example of lack of discipline beneficial to those you deem "whining" or "unchristian"?
What are you doing Mike? Are you crazy? didn't you read Gays earlier post?
"people see me as strong and capable and are afraid to speak to me because there's something strong in my eyes"
OK, stay calm, everyone stay calm.
Gay, Mike didn't want to ask you such a question. Truth is, I dared him. It was really a double dare backed by a picture of a statue in his backyard. He had no choice. Its my fault. Forgive us
