I canât believe that all those women had such low morality that they would have sex with Trump out of wedlock or put themselves into positions to be sexually abused; whatever that means. Stormy Daniels was a porn actress so she made her living by being immoral. Why would anyone bring her into the spotlight? Yes, Trump had sex with her and tried to pay her off. Who in their right mind doesn't believe that?
I remember Trump saying something like; âif you are rich and famous, then you can do âŚ with womenâ. Was he wrong? My question is meant to be general in nature.
Trump is an immoral buffoon and âmostâ of the women who have complaints about him are just as immoral and they have no shame. Welcome to modern day Sodom!
Whores with whore mongers!
Jim, just remember, there is none good, no not one .....

Good thought! Yes, that is the reason that I consider most pastors to simply be hirelings. In our society, if someone sells more widgets than someone else then they are considered more successful than others and that thought has definitely entered into our churches. The larger the congregations, the more successful the pastor is. And that results in more money and greater benefits and recognition.
Proverbs 11:1 A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.
But scripture says: Matthew 20:26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; (the thought of being a servant)
Christopher000 wrote: "Jesus Christ is The way, the truth, and the life...no man comes to The Father, except through him" Oh, but apparently, there's a caveat...any other religion that believes in the basic foundation, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, God, an historical Jesus, the basic tenants of the Bible, or Mary, whatever, then they're good to go as well; being saved from Hellfire, but just not knowing how it happened. These all fall under the very large umbrella of Christianity. Anyone who gives these comfort, and the assurance of salvation is a wolf in sheep's clothing. No preacher, Pastor, or spiritual giant, being fully equipped with the knowledge of His Word, had or has any business giving this false hope, and they, themselves are just as guilty as the wilfully ignorant themselves, of their destruction to come if they continue on false paths.
Chris, your additional comments and thoughts are outstanding. Most of those who live in Western cultures are deceived into thinking they are Christians when they are not are simply those who use some sort of balance scale.
They somehow believe they are better than someone else, so surely they will not suffer His wrath.
They do not understand God's holiness or His justice.
Here is what pluralism really means. If someone says that faith in Christ is essential for their individual salvation but not necessarily for someone elseâs then they have logically said it wasnât essential for them, but was simply a matter of personal choice. The world has told us to think this way in all spiritual matters. So it is not uncommon for someone to apply a moral standard to their own lives, but not to the lives of others. That is moral hypocrisy of the highest order and simply deludes the lost into reducing Godâs moral standards and requirements to personal choices, and if a personal choice then they canât be binding on anyone. This personal choice fallacy is one of the characteristics that separate the true church of Christ from all others. Pluralism is simply spiritual polygamy. There are lots of worthy husbands and Christ just happens to be the one I chose. But, Iâll sleep with whomever I want!

Hey Brother! I only have a moment, but I just wanted to say that when someone joins the military, they will receive a series of shots or they won't be allowed to serve. If someone in the military goes to Asia, then they receive an additional series of vaccines.
When we go outside and breathe the air, then we are polluting our bodies. When we eat processed food, there are pollutants there.
Trump is on record for saying that PP does a lot of good, but shouldnât do abortions. But, he approved their current government funding.
Trump is on record for saying that abortions for rape and incest should always be allowed. What did those babies do to cause their deaths?
Trump is on record for saying that doctors who perform abortions should be punished, but the women who have them shouldnât be. Then why punish the doctors?
Trump is on record for saying Roe V. Wade should be overturned and the issue of abortion should be given to the states. Okay, that means the states can then legally murder children in the womb.
Trump says to ban âlate termâ abortions except in the case of rape, incest or health of the mother. So, some doctor can say the mother has a really bad headache.
Under our current president, abortions might subside slightly since he has to pander to his base, but he will do nothing whatsoever to stop and punish those who do this. He does not believe that the life in the womb is a life from the moment of conception.

I also worked for an intelligence branch and of course I can confirm there was no leeway given to those who broke the rules. And your statement that "intent" played absolutely no part in being guilty.
Hillary and Bill are a mockery of our so-called legal system. They appear to be above the law.
Christopher000 wrote: So, this is off topic, I guess, but I've always wondered something...is there anything, scripturally, that anyone knows of that would allude to it being wrong to swap our blood and body parts? In the case of body parts, live, or postdeath organ donation. Like cremation, I'm assuming it's just a matter of choice, and that there's nothing in the Bible that speaks against it? Another thing I've wondered about is the transplanting of animal parts within the human body, like valves from pigs, organs from chimps, etc.
Hey Chris! I looked it up and I found the Jehovah Witnesses were against blood donations and it also said that some Jews were against organ donations. I had never heard about the Jewish issue?
Anyway, I personally don't see anything wrong with any of this and if someone needed my blood, etc. I would give it. I have AB negative which is the rarest blood type and I remember years ago the blood banks telling to stop giving because it just sat on the shelves.
I have never thought about animal parts and can't imagine how they could be used.

Okay brother, I am only going to admit this only to you. I cheated and answered some of the question in way that I knew would make me less toxic. If I had allowed my wife to take the test as to what she thought of my personality, I would have been toxic -.

Between that, the stigma, and the eyerolling, minimizing response of many, âgoing publicâ is rarely easy. Many who are emotionally abused, are tricked into believing that they are the crazy ones; they actually begin to believe it, and find themselves apologizing for reacting to the abuse, etc. The emotionally abusive can be real tricky, and if anyone wants a deeper look into these sorts of personalities, just read up on an extended definition of a toxic petsonality.
I just took an online personality toxic test because I had never heard of the term. Anyway, I scored a 64. Not bad for a toxic old man.
First, let me say that I am not making light of women who are truly abused. Christian men should love their wives as Christ loves His church - PERIOD. So, no naysayers; I will not respond to them.
But, it seems odd to me that the world is finally starting to recognize the abuse that women have and are suffering. Christ died 2000 years ago and the scripture regarding how married couples and others in society are supposed to love one another were written some time ago. So, why did this relatively easy concept take so long to reveal âto this extentâ? What other moral mandates and the failure of even Christians to adhere to them, are just now coming to the surface? Is the church and society finally waking up? Why is it that this revelation concerning women has sort of piggybacked societal feminism and all of the complaints against men in the media, politics and on universities?
I also noticed that in reading this article, although I just skimmed it, that no scripture admonitions were given regarding what was said to these ladies, unless someone wants to state Genesis 3:22.
Giving Christian counseling can be very difficult and although I am not a fan of Paige Patterson, I can understand how this could have come to pass.
Yes, what should a Christian do when they are forced to undergo someoneâs sinful nature; the lady cursing? When I was in the workforce, I would have told them their behavior was offensive to me because I was a Christian and then I would have left it alone.
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Thanks for noting the above scripture. The thing that has always stood out to me is when Christ says âHeâ never knew them. We can be fooled, but Christ cannot! If we truly belong to Him, then He knows us.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Many so-called Christian women only submit to their husbands if their husbands are behaving themselves according to the wifeâs standards. Women are in fact weaker vessels, but physical strength is not the issue, the emotional and spiritual strengths are the issues. Men have the same weaknesses before their heavenly Father, so they should make every effort to correct, listen to, and love their wives as Christ does them.
The Western cultures have now given women the victim status which means when things go wrong in a marriage, they are presumed to be the victims; hence presumed not guilty. That is not glorifying to our Lord and Savior. When is the last time anyone has heard that when a man is charged with sexual harassment, the women was even partially guilty?
When Pandoraâs Box was opened, it cannot be shut. Like I said before, this sounds like a he says, she says issue with the first woman noted in the article. But, our heavenly Father knows which one, if either, is serving Him.
The wife is to love and submit to her husband as unto the Lord and the husband is to love his wife as Christ loves His church.
I only read about the first complainant. But, I would say most of these things are he says, she says. In the end, I agreed with the following decision the church made. Very interesting though!
âWhen the elders heard that T had been meeting with other church members to tell her story of disappointment with them, they accused T of causing division within the church body. In March 2016â14 months after she charged abuseâthe elders sent her a 10-page letter saying they did not believe her accusations. If there was any indication of capital-A abuse taking place in the coupleâs household, they wrote, it was from her.
The elders asked her to repent, threatening to remove her from church membership. T refused to withdraw her accusations of abuse. Two months later, the elders excommunicated her and sent a letter about that to the entire church. Today, Tâs ex-husband is still a member of the church, while T has moved to Minnesota, feeling the church had spiked a scarlet letter to her chest.â
