"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."

Jim, you know we have been through this before. From a source you should trust, Politico,
RomneyCareâs pioneering health insurance exchange is headed for the scrap heap.
An article dated back 05/05/2014 and titled. Massachusetts ditches RomneyCare exchange.
From the article.
Itâs unclear what either option will cost Massachusetts or whether federal officials will cover that expense. Massachusetts has already spent $57 million on a system that never was able to enroll people with subsidies start to finish, and its failure has forced the state to enroll more than 160,000 residents in temporary Medicaid coverage â at an estimated $10 million-a-month cost

Brother not commenting on the substance of your posts or on you personally, just your opening comment with a generalized response..
Wouldn't read too much into it, people tire of the debate and because, as usual nobody changes their thinking, they often see it as pointless to continue. I am sure you've been there.
Dolores, I am not sure why you joined into this thread and out of the blue attacked sisters MS and Ladybug. It would seem that if you are going to lament about your posts being given, in your eyes, ill treatment that you would also avoid the same
I find it strange that knowing that any defense of the Grahams is going to garner push back in this forum (it always has, it always will ) Why bring the aggravation to yourself by so doing? You have many good things to say and most regular posters know what you think of the Grahams.
Appreciate all the conjectures and commentaries. Actually had previously heard someone suggest the same thing as sister MS
Now one thing of which I am certain is that all those who shared their conjectures and every commentator is wiser and more scholarly than I
Yet we realize there are different Greek words for love. The word used in Mark 10:21 is not phileo but agapao. It is used to speak of the Fatherâs love for the Son; Christâs love for His children; our wholehearted love for God; the deep love of one whose many sins were forgiven; etc.
In none of the other 141 times it is used in the NewTestament does it carry the connotation the commentators suggest it has in Mark 10
Yet it would be good to consider that you can tell about 40-50 brothers and sisters in Christ who know your wife that she is sick and request prayer as I did today.
That a missionary family serving in Pau Pau New Guinea whose only communication with those in the states other than a letter that goes to supporting churches, access FB (not instant because of where it originates) sharing progress and prayer requests that actually get read.
You can post a gospel message that you hope God will use in the lives of your unsaved friends (I Cor. 3:6)
Post relating to activities (like where we ate) or kids are a normal part of conversation when people get together and you discuss how things are going, you just get to share it with more people
Facebook abuses arenât FB problems they are the people using its problems The thing that some people seem to forget is that it is a public forum and your privacy in any information you share is non-existent
Anything we use should be done for the purpose of glorifying the Lord.
ladybug wrote: Sister MS, That could be, I really do not know for certain. Bro. US, from your 6:14 post, "âThen Jesus beholding him loved himâ, so His love is not only for His elect." IF the rich young ruler was not among the saved, then the love Christ stated could not have been the same kind of electing love we find for the chosen of God. As you know, context determines the true meaning, as well as cross referencing. We agree that we cannot tell sinners God loves them, which was my original complaint against John UK.
Andrew Clements wrote: Of course it is **impossible** for anyone born of the flesh, but Christ regenerates even the most wicked (Saul) of His elect. I've noticed, U.S. that during this discussion, you have constructed points consistent with the Arminian position, a position the reformers unanimously rejected (Canons of Dordt). Your views seem to echo those of the Roman Catholics (with regard to the doctrine of Justification) during that period (and today). I know that our standard isn't "the church fathers", but Scripture. However, I would think that if my position was similar to the R.C's, this might at least leave cause for reexamination. Perhaps a glance at Luther's classic, "Bondage of the Will", might get your attention. Peace.
A curious post at best. I don't get doctrine from the Arminians or the Reformers or the synod of Dordt.
As far as I know you are the first to say that my positions agree with Arminians or the RCC. You will need to be more specific if you are really interested in me addressing the issues of which you speak.
ladybug wrote: US - you seem to have missed the point I was making, so I will not waste anymore time. To say that God's love is universal, for ALL mankind, is nowhere taught.
I never said that. I am not saying it with the next sentence. The unrepentant rich young ruler shows that God's love extends beyond His elect. If God didn't love sinners none would be saved. God bless.
Dear sister Ladybug, I gave you more than ample Scriptural support. Everything is not located in sermons in the Bible. If you donât want to accept that then we will agree to disagree but please donât say I offered no Scriptural support.
