Fair Housing laws prohibit discriminatory ads and behavior, not expressions of personal faith. So, for example, a realtor's ad could not say "House for rent to women only" or "One-bedroom apartment for Christians only" but it could say "House for Rent. Perfect for Large Family." or "One-bedroom apartment. Perfect for Singles." It's obvious which of these examples shows discriminatory intent. But, how does expressing one's personal faith or including a Bible verse on stationary indicate discrimination? It doesn't.
In our case, there is no discrimination, or even accusation of discrimination. In fact, our client has provided realtor services for, among others, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Kenyans and Vietnamese. She is clearly not discriminating against anyone and just wants to express her faith through her work. That is her right, and we are fighting for her freedom to exercise it." -- ACLJ have a long history of defending the constitutional rights of Christians. In this country, no person of faith should ever be forced to justify their exercise of their free-speech rights and lawful expression of their faith. Moreover, no government body should ever be allowed to pick and choose which religious expression is permitted in the public discourse.
When the Rolling Stoneâ€™s story about â€śJackieâ€ť and the sexual assault at the University of Virginia that never happened began to unravel, Maxwell was torched for penning an op-ed that all but said that due process should be thrown out the window: -- "We should believe, as a matter of default, what an accuser says. Ultimately, the costs of wrongly disbelieving a survivor far outweigh the costs of calling someone a rapist. Even if Jackie fabricated her account, U-Va. should have taken her word for it during the period while they endeavored to prove or disprove the accusation. This is not a legal argument about what standards we should use in the courts; itâ€™s a moral one, about what happens outside the legal system."
Take what you will from that. In all, Maxwell, and others that came before her, tried to give Bill some cover, while mitigating sexual assault committed within their own tribe. Itâ€™s benign? Iâ€™m sure Ms. Tweeden would disagree -- Craig Melvin asked Maxwell if we should be talking about Bill Clinton right now amid all these sexual assault allegations.
â€śNo, I donâ€™t think we should talk about Bill Clinton" http://ntknetwork.com/former-hillary-clinton-staffer-al-frankens-sexual-assault-was-benign/

Enough of the innuendos, "Watchful", yeah, I know who you are, but out of respect, won't out you. One question so I know whether to paste over what I just typed out...am I among the minions of Satan you're referring to? I've made my positions crystal clear, so none of this, well, if you believe this or support that...just a simple yes or no will do just fine.
Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
1 Pet 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
1 Cor 9:10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope..
ThanksgivingHarvest We plough the fields, and scatter the good seed on the land, but it is fed and watered by God's almighty hand:
Âż? Specifically - it has nothing to do with translation/ rather source selection & collation to the greatest degree -so you think Kurt Aland, who publicly doubted the space/time existence of the Lord Jesus Christ better than godly Erasmus? 1-Connor- be honest - have you read " The Handbook of the Militant Christian" by Erasmus? Do you own a hard copy of it with the scripture passages noted? -- 2- what think you of this statement by Kurt &Barbara Aland: "INNUMERABLE MANUSCRIPTS WERE DESTROYED during the persecutions and had to be replaced. The result was a widespread scarcity of New Testament manuscripts which became all the more acute when the persecution ceased... There also followed a sudden demand for large numbers of New Testament manuscripts in all provinces of the empire" (Aland, The Text of the New Testament, p. 65) It is supremely important to have faith in God, both for our salvation and for believing that He has kept and preserved His words throughout every generation as He promised to do. If you cannot believe God has kept His promise to preserve His words, then how can He keep you?

His crowd's "enabler" role : "Some two- and-a-half years ago, we were thrust, I believe, by a divine wind into a prayerful, mindful, painful, invigorating, careful, and hopeful conversation regarding sexual orientation and gender identity," explained Mitchell .. "Our position that these siblings of ours, other than heterosexual, our position that these our siblings cannot have the full privileges of membership, but only partial membership, has changed," he said to mixed reaction. Some members applauded while others remained seated and silent Not a one stood up, pulled out a Bible and read Lev 20:23"if a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." To warn of the way of death Or Rom1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27aAnd likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, ..32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death,.. not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
As I've said before, if anyone wishes to quote me and ask a question because they disagree, please feel free to ask away, and I will answer any question, especially if it is asked in a gracious way.
No problems with my story of New Christian thus far? Ah good. Then I shall continue, in the sure and certain knowledge that what I say is truth, as attested to by all the brethren and sisters on here, where "all" means "all".
Of course, I realise that there are two main sorts of Christians in the world today: those who accept SCRIPTURES ALONE, and those who maintain ALL OF SCRIPTURE, ALONE. There seems to be quite a difference between the two. The former will receive proof texts and build a systematic theology; the latter will accept every scripture and love every text, even if it means not being able to tie God down or fully understand him.
Not able to fully understand God? Oh boy that itself is worded wrong. I ought to say that God is Almighty God, and I am a created being. God's presence is everywhere, he fills the universe, which he made in six days; unlimited in power and knowledge. The Bible gives us a glimpse, that's all.
The Reformers believe in Sola Calvin and whoever may agree. As R.C. Sproul would say, "Any good Reformer knows the four gospels are Matthew, Mark, Luther, and John!". If they truly believed in Sola Scriptura, then there would be no Calvinism.
William Ashbrook -- "A movement born of compromise, nurtured on the pride of intellect, growing on the appeasement of evil, and doomed by the judgment of the Word of God. ....
Francis Stiles -- "Neo-evangelicalism is a religious philosophy. It attempts to reach and minister to man through his felt needs. It seeks to commend man for his achievements and realign his energies for good. It emphasizes unity at the expense of truth and reduces the Biblical requirements of purity and separation unto God until they are obscure. Man and his present circumstances, rather than God and His eternal precepts, are the core of its concern.
Hmm, it seems that Jim cannot work up the intellect or courage to debate someone who was homeschooled, maybe it's because I utilize something called logic...plus the fact that I've slaughtered him on every controversial discourse we've had.

Dear ladybug, please understand that you are honoring God when you call out deception and apostasy in the church. You will be attacked. You will be reviled and lied about. These spiritual dwarfs will come out of the woodwork and sneer at you saying, "Now you're trying to be holier than us eh?"
Woe to you if all of these minions think highly of you. Of course I have just stuck my hand in the proverbial hornet's nest here and that's fine. If the shoe fits, wear it people. As for you dear sister, chin up, I for one am proud of how you have been going toe to toe with these arminianists.

Methinks that every Catholic who works in a coal mine, heavy industry, power plant, etc., plus those in mining, oil and industrial towns should denounce this pope, as he wants to put them all out of work.
All poor and elderly Catholics should denounce this man, as he wants their energy bills to go sky high, because the alternative to fossil fuels is so prohibitively expensive.
All Catholics who love democracy and individual freedom should denounce this Pope, as he wants to hand them over to the one world globaliists and those in the Middle East, who have been slaughtered by ISIS and other Islamic fanatics, and seen their churches and monasteries destroyed, should loudly denounce him, as he is a friend to the Muslims, who actually regard him as a "useful idiot".
Let us pray that these dear Catholic people will stop trusting in this man, and cone instead to a Biblical faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their sole Mediator, Redeemer, Saviour, Lord and King.
I'm arguing that if the presupposition is that a Catholic priest cannot translate the Bible, then that is a blow to the KJVonly camp because of Erasmus. There are 31 TRs, you can't say, "This is the TR" because of the revisions and stuff.
Ironically, since the KJV was updated and revised (for lack of better term), in the 1700's, which KJV Bible was/is the pure KJV?
