Why then does C. H. Spurgeon commend her? ?
Where is his discernment? ?
Please be considerate; your double-spaced text takes excessive space.

I don't think your questions are worth considering, for at the worst, even if Spurgeon was mistaken about Guyon's heart, it doesn't imply we pigeonhole him and reject everything else he said. In my experience as an amateur historian, blameless historical figures, even in the church, are very rare. And how many times do *we* misjudge people, for better or worse?

Martin Luther was a bitter anti-Semite, which I find very troubling, but should we therefore reject his conclusions about Justification? No, for we judge a man by his doctrine, and not the doctrine by the man.

Ariel, I think I will take NASA's opinion on climate change,
And I won't, for since NASA has a Conflict of Interest (they benefit financially more from positive findings than negative ones), their research CANNOT be trusted, quite apart from the inherent fallibility of empiricism. If science is a source of truth, its findings could NEVER change. Yet climate science certainly has.

And rationally, they're on even thinner ice when ascribing warming to human activity. Correlation Does Not Imply Causation.

As for nuclear power, look up "Price-Anderson Nuclear Industries Indemnity Act" and ask yourself why this wasn't needed for conventional power plants.

When will Mohler apologize for spreading the infection of Reformed theology in the SBC?
Study church history - many Baptists have been "infected" with Reformed theology since, well, the Reformation:
www.reformedreader.org/ccc/h.htm
www.alliancenet.org/the-philadelphia-confession-of-faith

I didn't need to read this stuff or Calvin to believe Predestination, though. Scripture is quite clear about it, for those ready to hear. Luther's "Bondage of the Will" shows that the arguments for and against it haven't changed in 500 yrs.

Sen. Ben Sasse (14_min YouTube) on "Russian influence on the Campaign is a big deal"
Democrat cheating in the Campaign (both within their party and balloting) is the big deal, which I think is why they try to shift blame to the Russians. This childish tactic seems to work on the simpletons who support them, but it reminds me of cop shows where, when they confront a driver with pot in his car, get the response "It isn't mine!", as if the police were born yesterday.

Why would the Russians hack the DNC?
The DNC are commie Liberalists anyway!!
You're implying Russians are Communist, or at least sympathetic. As things are going, we conform better to that epithet better than they do! After several tens of millions dead, they may have learned something. We have yet to, apparently.

Russia doesn't worry me, unless we start a war with them, which is likely given the arrogant, chronic militarism of those in the UK and USA who follow Cecil Rhodes in believing the world should be controlled by Anglo-Saxons.

...Trump's wall will be more like a Maginot Line.
Since the Maginot line was bypassed, not penetrated (as the author said), it only serves to show that defenses mustn't have gaps. Uh, yeah. That's not a reason not to build one.

But the best way to stop immigration (legal or not) is to make this country unlivable, Venezuela style, with idiotic, childish Democrat socialist policies.

If RCC clerics were as clean living as Mormon missionaries, it would make no difference - it is enough that their church teaches falsehoods. But these days, those impatient with doctrine, in the spirit of Kierkegaard, might hearken to salacious tales instead.

Very interesting Neil on the issue of indulgencies!
To be sure, while Muslim obstruction of pilgrims visiting "holy" sites as part of their penance was a motive, so also was an attempt by the pope to reunify with the Greek church. But no doubt, pope Urban did promise remission of sins to crusaders, as you said; anyone taught sound Biblical doctrine would've laughed at this. Indeed while many doubted the call, a wide spectrum of fools, noble and peasant, fell for the scam. It's an early example of following the herd over a cliff.

Irony was, geographically uninformed crusaders idiotically wound up sacking Constantinople, which hastened its later fall to the Turks! Hungarians were attacked during the People's Crusade, as were Jews. The whole thing was a murderous joke, as if life wasn't dangerous enough already with plagues, famines, dynastic wars, etc.

BTW there were also crusades against Waldensians, early Russia (who whipped the Teutonic Knights), and Cathars.

...I couldn't convince them in the slightest that catholicism is not the same as Christianity.
That's the problem with US coastal media elites, including the conservative minority, who having grown up as urban Catholics or at least near it, consider it Christianity, which has long affected Hollywood movies exported to other countries. This secular article sums it up very well:
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChristianityIsCatholic

More to your point, it's not often noticed anywhere that the Crusades were motivated by the very issue Martin Luther objected to: Indulgences. Absent this doctrine, there would've been no reason to travel to medieval Jerusalem.

Somewhat ironically, most American churches today are still obsessed with Jerusalem, though for different reasons.

Media and propaganda go hand in hand.
Often said, but do you understand the background? I found this an instructive and disturbing read:
www.historyisaweapon.org/defcon1/bernprop.html

The author Bernays, founder of the PR trade, was one of the most sinister backroom influences of the 20th Century, yet few know of him. Maybe some of your personal purchase habits were affected by his strategies.

Almost as bad as the Black Panthers...
In like manner to Hell's Angels, that was originally the nickname of an effective, decorated WW2 combat organization:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/761st_Tank_Battalion_(United_States)
Jackie Robinson was a 1st Lt. in it. Patton wanted them in his army, and gave them full encouragement despite personal discomfort with blacks, common in the military at that time.
"Men, you're the first Negro tankers to ever fight in the American Army. I would never have asked for you if you weren't good."

"Satan's Angels" was the nickname of the 475th Fighter Group in the Pacific Theatre, which had many star aces, whereas "Hell's Angels" was the 303rd Bombardment Group in Europe.

Yeah, I'm not comfortable with such names either, but that's war for you.

(The Fight for Health Care Has Always Been About Civil Rights)
Standard Democrat tactic of representing any opposition to their policies as racist, in order to shut down rational debate over whether appropriate, effective, etc.

And someone's blatant hypocrisy is showing. The majority of abortions are of blacks. Why isn't abortion labeled a racist genocide then? Where's the self-righteous outrage here?

Anecdotally, we've heard of this in past churches several times, and in one we don't attend - some yrs. ago, local news reported a youth-group leader at E. Tucson Baptist church ago busted for this. BTW, after this hit the news, they stopped putting cute slogans on their marquee - for awhile.

Never assume church personnel are too nice to be perverts, and be wary of folks who claim to like kids, for perverts are good actors and know that Christians are taught to think the best of everyone.

And Americans are too easily impressed by a Colgate Smile.

When I was young, I never met anyone that was divorced. I'm sure they were there, but rare in my neck of the woods. The below in brackets is the cut and paste again.
Sorry, I didn't notice that was a quote before.

It's possible we heard little because folks were ashamed to mention divorce, like it was a dirty secret. My late mother-in-law, a Christian, had a very difficult marriage, yet refused to divorce. My late mother was afraid to divorce; I know a reason was fear of penury, but it may also have been the disgrace.

Today though, our culture has systematically diluted shame over anything. So Jer. 6:15 seems applicable: "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush"

Today, all states except New York offer some form of no-fault divorce.
Did you forget to paste something? I don't see it. Anyway, while older divorce laws certainly didn't prevent broken marriages, they at least make it harder to be irresponsible. This is one example of how modern social legislation can reward evildoing, if not prevent it.

Divorce was rare and scandalous in my parents' generation (b. 1920s-30s). It was a big deal when one occurred in their social circle. So I was shocked when I learned, upon starting my job in the early '80s, how many coworkers were divorced.

Our '60s Cultural Revolution yielded nothing but bitter fruit. And those who came of age in that time, and run the country now, have learned nothing.

No-default divorce, which varies by State, can be unjust. I have a relative whose scumbag husband cheated on her, but because of her higher income at the time, *she* owed spousal support according to the law in "Calipornia."

The CA law, a first as usual, was signed by a divorced male Hollywood actor.

The US downsizing may be a bad idea, Neil.
When WWIII comes in a couple of years time? - probably Russia versus the west? - The US will be the only military power able to take them on.
The world has changed since I was born, and so has my opinion. Fear of Russia is a propaganda distraction designed to keep scrutiny of immoral Western gov'ts at bay.

The UK (Royal Navy) has only 19 warships today. 13 out of date frigates, and 6 destroyers which apparently keep breaking down.
Even Japan's Maritime Self-Defense Force has twice as many ships and aircraft as the RN. Not that I blame them, considering their neighbors. The USN, OTOH, could do with some downsizing.

I've heard it said Korea is more Confucian than China.

I tried reading the Analects but found them underwhelming.
