I understand the feeling of need to constantly rebuke trolls. But i wonder sometimes if its to satisfy our own feelings overtop necessity to expose them. All trolls get found out. Some instantly, others through time. And yes, it takes engagement to expose them.
All im saying is quality over quantity. Few powerful and careful words over many emotional words.
Most of the time the best post is the one you don't post. No one ever accused a silent person of causing division. Part of the reason i don't post like i used to, is that these threads become a platform of teachers with very few students.
There used to be more love for one another than there is now. Love for those who you even disagree with.
The mind is changed through grace, mercy, and love.

Christopher... much appreciated as others have already said. Christ was the fulfilment of the law. Which we ourselves could not do without him as the forerunner. Which is why he is our king. Our Lord. How amazing that he can still call his apostles and friends his brothers? He having conquered can provide obedience through him. Which is impossible in ourselves. Oh, the richness and mercy of God.
Still... The Lord requires obedience. Which he can supply to us through the new birth. But that is through love. Jesus summed up the ten commandments with the 2 you quoted. Both of which start with an action, love. Love is the fulfillment of the law. If we bed ourselves in that type of love we will never be disobedient.
Truth be told... there are plenty of warning scriptures. Which some have a hard time dealing with. Because it challenges things that seem settled. So it can lead to longggggggggg discussions.
So let's keep it simple... What does the word of God say? Not... What do we want it to say.
Thanks for the clarification James. In terms of evangelizing, the school master is key for some. As evidence by the response of some to the way comfort uses it. I love how he starts... " do you think your a good person?" Then, with a gentle ruler over the hand, the school master teaches. And leads to Christ.
Once you come to him, he teaches us in our spirit what the Sabbath rest really is. Some come to understand it quicker than others. Tale care.
I pray that there would be more brothers like Ray comfort. Who would use the school master (the law) to bring more to Christ. How can we know what school is teaching us without a teacher to teach us? And without the teaching, how can we reach graduation?
Please remember that news reporters, anchors, editors, etc. Work for other people. CNN getting exposed about the russian/trump "nothing burger" should tell you how bosses set agendas. If you disobey your boss, likely you will be fired. These people value their careers. Its easy and convenient to just hide behind what law enforcement is saying, rather than real, free, independent investigative reporting. Thats up to us now. It really is. Who here really trusts the MSM? Yet, it seems people want to trust them.
The truth (in regards to this type of stuff) is in between the cracks. In between the MSM and the crazy youtubers.
That sad fact is important for understanding the emotional trick. Thanks Chris.
Roughly the same amount of people were slaughtered in the televised event, as were in Chicago last month. Chicago gangs are mostly responsible for those deaths. Which largely means illegal guns. So we should ban the guns from law abiding citizens?
Follow the pattern..
Sadly, im sure it will happen again. Maybe with more theatrics? Who's going to fall for this again?
Yes sister. It seems to keep getting weirder everyday. So far, no motive. The brother of the "alleged" shooter did a second interview yesterday which was very different from the first one. His words and behavior were bizarre. So now the big talk is legislation to ban "bump stops". Automatic weapons have been banned for quite a while. Does anyone know who declared "bump stops" legal? Former attorney general Eric holder under the Obama administration.
Wake up people. Its not the guns. Its the gun show. A sick theatrical production by evil.
May the Lord cause repentance and revival in the land. I pray that his people stand up courageous in reality for his name sake. Grant us grace to help in time of need. May HE be our arm, sword, shield, and helmet.
