It would be greatly appreceiated if you would stop speaking against dear sister MS (you used this type of comment at least 4 times), who for good reason posted her protest against the news item to which you refer. You obviously are not cognizant of who she is or why she would post what she did. You stated your thinking about it at the time. There is no need to continually run her down for something, to be honest, you really don't fully understand.
Thanks for dropping the needless put downs of a dear sister in Christ.
How many of think they are telling you they are happy?
Like it or not it has changed meaning and when you talk about gay people or the gay agenda everyone knows you are referring to sodomites. Not using the term gay when speaking of homosexuals doesnât make you more spiritual or a linguistic purist

Our own socialist here at SA. There is more than adequate proof that the rich are paying way more than their fair share of tax burden. From the WSJ
"For 2018, households in the top 20% will have income of about $150,000 or more and 52% of total income, about the same as in 2017. But they will pay about 87% of income taxes, up from about 84% last year. By contrast, the lower 60% of households, who have income up to about $86,000, receive about 27% of income."
But Jimbo thinks it should be confiscated at a higher rate and redistributed to âless fortunateâ. Annoyed that people can keep more of their own money instead of it being confiscated by the government, very telling. It is a big duh, if you pay $1000 in taxes and I pay a million my tax cut is worth more.
In all your internet searches and âresearchâ Jim do one on the 8th commandment.
Itâs manifestation may differ in other parts of the world brother John UK, but wherever you go the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. It is only the grace of God that makes the difference
Just to be clear I have no issue with you sharing your opinion on these things, as you did in your previous post, on this forum. You are entitled to think and share your beliefs. In each of my posts I used the terminology about admonishing the brethren. When you start using your opinion as the basis for what you think the brethren should or should not do and condemn them for not seeing things your way that is where, in my opinion, you are crossing the line. Exploit means to gather benefit from that is not the same as engaging in physical acts of fornication and adultery.
sc wrote: A whore. Unprofitable, is one who gets paid for exploiting their body. If women expose themselves and get paid for doing that as part of their position/role, then they are prostitutes. Entertainers,cheerleaders,sportscasters,weather girls,etc....who expose themselves and get paid are prostitutes. Little wonder children and teens don't get society's double standard.
That is your definition and it is not found in the Bible or the dictionary. I am just saying if you want to admonish the brethren use terms as they are intended or start saying in my opinion that is not backed by facts.
I am thankful for GPS, it helps me get places in an efficient manner. I remember telling my.brother to use his cellphone to get him to his home after he left me. He looked at a map and didn't bother. He got lost twice. Technology is helpful, it doesn't promise perfection just makes more judicious use of our time. Seems like if the magnetic poles were an issue it would also effect a compass. Y'all start your fire from scratch , as for me I will use a match or a lighter thank you.
sc wrote: Good comment,Bible based. The adults in this sexually saturated culture need to quit entertaining themselves with whores and whore mongers even in sports at the price of sacrificing their children over to the god of lust.
The definition of a whore is a woman who works as a prostitute
A prostitute is defined as one who engages in the physical acts that the Bible terms fornication or adultery for payment
Nothing is said about the attire they wear. Tamar was covered from head to toe and wore a veil If youâre going to admonish the brethren then you should use truthful terms not just ones that make you feel better about the position you take but donât actually fit and for all intents and purposes amount to slander.

Thanks for your input
The word first is the same exact word Paul used in the previous sentence, translated chief. So Paul is continuing his thought not building a new one.
No super mysterious meaning here. This is not a numerical order usage, obviously there were already over 8,000 people saved by the time Paul wrote this.
As chief of sinners, he is at the top of the list (kinda like the #1 guy on the FBIâs most wanted), thus the pattern is set for any who believe here after. Which is that Christ Jesus, who came into the world to save sinners, in mercy and long-suffering will save other sinners (hallelujah)since He has already saved, in Paulâs estimation, sinner numero uno (a little Spanish lingo there). He is talking about the power of the glorious gospel (v. 11)l to save even the worst of sinners and thus any others further down the list, so to speak.
Dr Tim, just a FYI, if you look at most of the preachers on this site, they are mainly reformed in their thinking. They view Israel as being replaced by the church. Itâs fine to disagree but just know that by the nature of the site most posters would share the same thinking. Itâs a reality you have to keep in mind when posting here. The chances of them changing your thinking is about the same as you changing theirs. Youâre more than welcome to that debate but donât get frustrated when it goes nowhere
Zuckerberg must also be contemplating a second oddity. There was no privacy outcry when Barack Obama's 2012 campaign took advantage of the same Graph API to exfiltrate information of tens of millions of Facebook users without each voter's knowledge and consent. ... The Obama campaign's extensive harvesting of social graph data triggered Facebook's internal safeguards, according to an article a year later in The New York Times Magazine. But Facebook allowed it to continue. "It was more like we blew through an alarm that their engineers hadn't planned for or knew about," Will St. Clair, a programmer for the campaign, told the magazine. "They'd sigh and say, 'You can do this as long as you stop doing it on Nov. 7.'" "We ingested the entire U.S. social graph," Carol Davidsen, director of data integration and media analytics for Obama for America, told The Washington Post this week. "We would ask permission to basically scrape your profile, and also scrape your friends, basically anything that was available to scrape. We scraped it all."

First, thanks for input Lurker, will have to look
James, this is a quote from Isaiah, the meaning of the word thee did not change from the OT to the NT. Surely you are not saying Isaiah was writing about Paul and Barnabas, so the fact that Christ lived in Paul imo doesn't change the meaning of the word thee either. God's Word is not so mysterious that it takes a TSK search to figure out what it really means. (not putting down Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge searches)
