"I think we should allow for strong primary challenges, so that people can really put their Democratic chops on the line, if you will, and let the Democratic voters decide who they want," Jayapal told a press conference. "You can't say you're a Democrat if you're against immigrants, if you're against abortion, if you're against gay marriage and LGBTQ rights. I'm not sure what it means to be a Democrat if all of those things are true."

"A new report has revealed that support of the First Amendment among college students seems to be decreasing, as nearly half of students believe that hate speech should not be protected."
If true, nearly half of students are lacking in understanding, for there is no such thing as hate speech, just as there is no such thing as hate crime. How does man measure what's in a heart of another? People don't have to hate people to say or do evil against them. A robber doesn't have to hate his victim to rob him. Nor does disagreeing with someone mean hate is involved. The purpose of terms like "hate speech" and "hate crime" is to control not only what you do, but what you think. Orwellian nightmare promoted by the evil one, and his useful ignorant helpers.
"Police say the diocese has hidden records of complaints about priests, including former St. Cecilia pastor Rev. Edmundo Paredes."
I'm glad that many have, and still are, falling away from this false, and diabolical system, but where are they landing, is my concern? This false system dooms them while they remain with them, faithful, and in a state of grace, and it dooms them as they depart; pronouncing them, ananthema. The system, I believe, dooms them in another way now, as the "faithful" become disillusioned, and venture on to Athiesm, Agnosticism, and the metaphysical, etc. They believed the church of Rome was their salvation, so where do they go, and what do they do when everything they knew, and believed in, implodes, so the church dooms them, thrice.
I hope the bulk of them decide to start fresh, praying fervently, and unceasingly, opening their minds, grabbing their bibles, and begin to re-learn everything; slowly reversing all of the hardwired lies.
The "one true church", and its doctrines, traditions, rituals, and magisterium, are wickedness, and it's Popes, Bishops, and Priests, evil incarnate, under the outward guise of holiness, piety, and soft, inviting speech, sprinkled with just the right amount of scripture to complete the illusion.

Just go and do some open-air preaching and you will experience this for yourself. Don't go around looking for a survey, and don't bother when it happens to you. Don't bother with a manmade constitution, just follow Jesus. And accept the consequences. Live for Jesus, not for politics. Live the Bible way. Read the four gospels and learn more about Jesus. Stick to his side of the tracks. Don't get sidetracked from sola scriptura.
I would add that Mormonism is of very recent invention, being invented by Joseph Smith in 1830. Do you believe that God allowed the whole of mankind, up until 1830, to be condemned, and miss out on the spirit paradise, and the three degrees of glory, because He chose to withhold very important information that we needed?
Smith practiced religious folk magic, and magic supernaturalism, such as divining, and searching for treasure by peering into a seer stone, etc. His parents and grandparents also claimed to be seers; saying they would have visions, and receive secret messages from God, etc. Unfortunately, young Joseph grew up around this sort of supernaturalism, and metaphysics that he took a big step further, later on, as a mass con, or which allowed him to eventually be deceived by Satan, or a very high ranking fallen angel, and invent Mormonism.
Consider this: Just as every other false religion, and cult, were invented in more recent years, save for Islam and Buddism, etc., so was Mormonism invented by a mere man around 1830, and just as every other false religion and cult is, Mormonism, according to God-breathed scripture, is fully anti-bible, anti-God, and anti-Christ, in all it teaches and believes.
The spiritually abused, happened to the Seven Day Adventists when their prophets failed to predict Christ's return, happened to the Jehowas Witnesses, The recent blood moon with all the books and hype about it, I'm sure Mormons are feeling like this too. Many of those people never return to any sort of faith again. Read about the holocaust survivors, many of them gave up on God, and one told me "where was God?"
Furthermore, Mosiah 10:32 says, âYea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.â
So the question would be, have you denied yourself of all ungodliness? In deed, in your thoughts? Even one lustful thought would make you ineligible to ever receive the grace of elohim.
And you have to fulfill the greatest commandment, to love God with all your might, mind and strength, have you ever achieved this? If youâre honest youâll say ânoâ
Ephesians 2:8-9 says,âFor by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.â
@Chris, howdy there. Iâve studied Mormonism, Iâve read The Great Apostasy, Lectures on Faith, Our Search for Happiness, etc. and even some of the Mormon Scriptures.
But you brought up some interesting things but I want to focus on one:
1. If you love me keep my commandments
This is true, if we truly have been born again then we will have a Spirit filled desire to worship the one true God. (Deut. 6:4, Isaiah 41-45)
But here Christianity and Mormonism is already at tension, hereâs why. In Mormon theology there are 3 gods for this universe and there are an innumerable amount of other gods outside our universe. (Teachings of the prophet JS, pgs. 369-370)
Yet the Bible teaches that there is only one God (Gen. 1:1 Deut 6:4, Isaiah 41:4, Mark 12:29-30)
And this ties directly into the gospel because hereâs what the LDS scriptures teach:
2Nephi 25:23 says, âFor we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.â
Notice that you have to do all you can, if youâve ever neglected doing something (a good work, preaching the gospel of heavenly father, etc.) you then, according to LDS theology, cannot enter into glory...
Good thing, Adriel, that the Australians reject the true, "conservative" party. đ
Benedict Brook wrote: Americaâs National Rifle Association is seemingly so concerned by Australiaâs firearms laws, which have been credited for preventing any mass shootings since 1996, that it has taken to labelling our gun control advocates as âfanaticsâ intent on the âdestruction of personal freedomâ and warned chillingly that âthere will be bloodâ in this country.
At one point it even condemned âgun control evangelistâJohn Howard for seeking to âlecture American gun ownersâ.
Yet some of the research the NRA has used to try and persuade Americans that Australiaâs laws are a huge failure have been easily picked apart by critics.
The NRA is the USâ most high-profile gun advocacy group and was the first stop on One Nation senator Steve Dickson and staffer James Ashbyâs visit to America...
excerpt from, "âThere will be bloodâ: NRAâs chilling propoganda about Australia"
There is 400 year gap between Malachi and Matthew in the Bible; there is no such gap in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of the Lord Jesus Christ, which book begins in Old Testament times and moves right along into New Testament times, a smooth transition that bridges the two covenants beautifully together, and will convert the Jewish person to Christianity, Lord Jesus said "If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 3 says, nobody gets into heaven without baptism, and John 6 clear, nobody gets in without the sacrament, Matthew 10:40 says the Lord only receives those who receive His servants, and at the end of Matthew, we are told to take the gospel to all nations, baptizing them in the name of the 3 different Persons in the Godhead; Romans 15:16 we are sanctified by the Holy Ghost, which gift happens only after baptism, see Acts 8:17, and nowhere in Bible does it ever say "just any church and just anyone can baptize you," yes, the grace is that we can all pray for the truth to come to us and we can all pray and sing and dance and marry and serve others, yet nobody can just start a church and preach without God giving that person authority and power and a new book of scripture (which new scripture was written in Old Testament times) is tangible proof.

They form alliances, associations, non-profits, and they make full use of the legal arms, like the ACLU, to wage war against a God they claim doesn't exist. Seems to me that if they truly believed He doesn't exist, then they wouldn't do anything more than grimace at our foolishness, and make smart comments, etc. No, I think they just hate anyone who condemns their lusts, and immoral behaviors and views, etc. I just don't know what else would explain their hatred of The Living God; a God they claim is nothing more than pure fiction, and utter foolishness. They seem threatened, more than anything else...

It is our duty to teach the children Godâs word and His ways. We canât expect the world to teach them about God and His righteousness. This is the world today as the bible says where good will be called evil and evil will be called good. From day one I have been teaching my kids about His word and exposing them to the truth of the devils lies lurking around in every corner. Teach your children not only Godâs word but also expose them to the devils lies and deception. I count it a blessing that my kids are able to stand up for their beliefs in their school where they are educated to accept lgbt. They donât participate in anything related to such educational events. Please take the responsibility of educating your children yourself.
What a great comment and wonderful advice. Thanks!
