Very true Don Tian - no doubt JFK would run Republican. Also let's not forget that Trump was the main introducer of this childish, obnoxious, below-the-belt method of communication into Americas political discussions. I'll never forget those debates during his campaign....
So, so true Chris000! There was an incident here in Mississippi of a white thug beating up a lady in public and then being confronted by a black police officer. The thug then turned on the officer and the thug got exactly what was coming to him - a bullet. There was a very brief report on it in the local news and then it disappeared off the press. That's the way it should be. But sadly that's not the case when a black thug gets killed.
Jim since you say that it's the Christian duty of the state to fund healthcare, prove it! Where is that in scripture? I just wanna see one verse and I'll be absolutely convinced of your view. Please produce that verse or at least an inference from a verse. What you'll find is that scripture gives the state one job and one job alone - punishing evildoers.
Yes apparently the films they are showing are grotesque in the content they display. But is that that much worse than churches that heartily approve of Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, or Avengers? All of those movies promote ideas that are antithetical to a biblical worldview. As Chris G P noted, public schools do the same thing.
I thought black lives matter? Don't all lives matter? As has been noted before, blacks kill as many of each other as they please, yet the moment an officer of the law opens fire on a black American to save his own life, he's labeled as a cold blooded killer.
And Jim, your demeaning and brainless comment about Pro-Life workers not caring about unborn black babies is simply false.
Wayfarer Pilgrim from Lubbock,tx writes: "If you as a congregation are attacked attending church anywhere else, you have to simply have protect yourself and your own."
That's exactly right! John Piper takes a passive, weak, unbiblical view on this like he does on so many other subjects. I pray that a killer never shows up at my church, because he would leave in an unrecognizable, very deceased state.
Jim the problem isn't that people don't make enough money (or have their medical bills paid with stolen money), it's that they don't know how to manage what they get! I know of many families that have more than three members and live comfortably and save money with less than 80,000 a year. And one person not being able to make it on 50k a year? That's absurd! Where do you find the quacks that cook up this stuff? The problem is not that Americans can't make ends meet, it's that their irresponsible with their money. Yet you say introduce public health care which would only increase the burden on families through higher taxes (and no one disagrees with that). I think you make an effort to contradict yourself.
Little do you fellas know that the main course of this banquet consisted of ducks grown and raised by yours truly! Yup, even though they used eminent domain to steal'em from me, those Federal chefs paid a good price. Check out Trump's Twitter post: "fabulous ducks from BDF! I'm telling you they were awesome, they were really, really good..."
Originally Wendy's (Trump's favorite) was going to cater the event, but thankfully Sarah Huckabee Sanders told him it would be bad PR.
Great points CGP! You are certainly correct about the next set of Democrats being true radicals. Trump is in evey way exactly what the liberals despise the most. Literally every single aspect of his personality, policies, and personal life is antithetical to theirs. That being said, I think D. J. Trump is gonna get the boot in 2020 and be replaced by one of these radical socialists. The USA you described may be a lot closer than any sane person would like to think. Right now we're just above the water line.
Jim Lincoln, if John MacArthur said that (and considering that you posted it I can't trust entirely that he did) then he's dead wrong. A lot of Christians hold to the opinion he stated there and it's one of the big reasons this nation is going down the tubes. Guess what, if you say that serial killers should be punished in some sort of way, then you believe (as I believe) that it's okay to legislate morality. If you believe that bank robbers should be punished, then you believe it's okay to legislate morality. See what I'm sayin'? Unless someone is an anarchist (which being a socialist you obviously aren't) then they believe the state has not only the right but the duty to legislate morality. What kind of morality the state should legislate and enforce is where everyone disagrees. Unless we hold to a biblical ethic in regards to law (i. e. that which is contained in God's word, particularly the first five books of it), than we will end up at the dead end of pragmatism in which everyone "does what is right in his own eyes". Unless of course one is inclined to other systems like Sharia law or the Hindu Caste system, for example. So with that in mind, what rules do you think Uncle Sam should enforce? Please fill me in without using links and whatever other trash you can dig up off
Why Plain Old Tim, how dare you spill the beans about my past! They done made that movie without my permission! What you forgot to mention was the the fact that you starred in "Possum, Where Art Thou" another really popular movie. I'll be sure to tell my great grandchildren to never watch a hillbilly movie like that.
Peter, I'm eighteen years old and a homeschool student as well. It's not at all elitist to say what you said. Statistically homeschoolers are proven to read more, be better socialized, get better grades, and get better jobs. Thank your parents for the immeasurable gift they've given you! I don't see how christian parents can justify putting their children in the government schools.
Plain Old Tim from Possum Hollow, USA writes: ..." I can just about guarantee that not one secular outlet, whether liberal or conservative, will take a serious look at the influence of demons in all of these mass shootings."...
That's so true but what's even more disturbing is that most christians won't acknowledge the presence of Satan's minions. Instead they talk about gun control and the motive of the shooter or some quack psychologist's opinion on the issue.
