I have been to Europe and even the U.K. Nice places, post-Christian. I pray that America doesn't completely get that way. I wonder if there are more European immigrants to America than American immigrants to Europe.
Again, elections have consequences. I wonder how many nominal Christians (only in name) voted for those representatives who stand against the First Amendment. You reap what you elect. If you don't like the evil leaven then vote it out.
Hopefully no one is speaking of arrogance. The arrogant and prideful God resists but gives grace to the humble. The nuance is "not ashamed." If one can not lift up his head, straighten his shoulders, and walk with assurance (i.e. live with confidence) knowing that they are rooted and grounded in the LORD then I call that being ashamed of Him and who they are in Him. No one born of God looks down their nose at those who are not yet redeemed. We don't apologize for who we are in the LORD nor afraid to testify of how He rescued us out of prior situation(s) of living as a slave to sin and servants/puppets of the devil. We are free and we walk and talk as free; ready and eager to give account and testimony of the reason of our hope to every person. And we never boast of ourselves but we boast in the LORD and what only He has done. We should not even grow quiet and ashamed in tribulations but we should glory in them.
Unfortunately, there ARE truly many prideful and arrogant believers (both real and so-called) but I will never be ashamed of Christ and the Gospel.
Hmmm. I'm proud to take a stand for the LORD. I'm proud to be born of God. I'm proud to be a child of God. I'm proud (and not a ashamed) to suffer for the Name of Christ. I'm proud that I can boldly go where no mere man can go and that is to the Throne of Grace in times of need. I'm proud to affirm and proclaim Jesus and His words before men.
Reading the entire article suggests that all convictions that came about under the Mueller probe might be invalid because they used information obtained because of the FISA warrant. That would cover the convictions of Flynn, Manafort, and others. Additionally, all ongoing and future cases (including the President's) that involved those FISA warrants might also be invalid. Those warrants were signed at least six months BEFORE Mueller began his probe.
Hmmm. If they are "shocked" at the intensity of the eyes of a painting depicting the Lamb That Was Slain now they will experience a greater shock once He appears in person. So shocked that they will want to crawl up under a rock and hide.
San Antonio is really deep in the heart of Texas. I'm former USAF, thus I spent my 6 weeks basic training there at Lackland and then technical training at the School of Aerospace Medicine at Brooks. Surprisingly, San Antonio is the 2nd largest city in Texas behind Houston; then its Dallas and Austin. All four have liberal leaning governing bodies. Liberalism is a disease that is rapidly transforming the South. The Bible Belt is getting rid of the belt and its pants are dropping exposing more of its shame. And it IS a shame. We should only be liberal in our giving but never in our living. "For you say, ‚ÄėI am rich, and I have grown rich, and I have need of nothing.‚Äô And you do not realize that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from Me gold having been refined by fire so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may be clothed and the shame your of nakedness might not be made manifest, and eye-salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see." (Rev 3:17-18)
It is time for the U.S. to hold Nigeria responsible for the ineptness and eye winking in fighting against Boko Haram. It should be intolerable for any nation to allow any religion to not only persecute another but to continuously slaughter its members. So what, they have great reserves of oil; we don't need it. But they are still purchasing billions of products from America. Are we Christians considered fair game? "As it has been written: "For Your sake we face death all the day; we were regarded as sheep of slaughter.""
You can't get any ironic than this than a white haired White man making racist comments about his own race! I wonder if he swears at the image he sees in his mirror. Seems to me that if he would step back he should label himself a schizophrenic. If he thinks so little about his own race then which race does he think is the best? It doesn't matter; God has declared that all have missed the mark.
Ironically, one of their target states is North Carolina. However, the Susan B Anthony List (pro-life) is spending $52 million to counteract not only PP but also Emily's List (pro-abortion). This is basically the war where the combatants are overwhelmingly made of women. Fighting over the lives of babies (young human beings)?! Very interesting!
This truth, this reality is not only stranger than fiction but stranger than a horror story. The German holocaust was a leader having an arm of his military with the snitching of civilian sympathizers to exterminate a people and others whom the state deemed undesirables. Today, America is not using its military to do this but the desire and selfishness of its populace has used Democracy and the courts to kill and promote the slaughter of human beings through (diabolically) its "healthcare" system. And America coerces other nations to do the same for their populace via blackmail using financial aid. What a dystopian nightmare! What a global holocaust!
Taken from article in the JPost "In American society there is generally only place for one kind of racism. There are far-right white supremacists and everyone else. This Manichean worldview of antisemitism and racism means we are only comfortable with one type of perpetrator. An angry white man. Those are the racists. Dylann Roof, the racist who murdered black people in a church in 2015 is the most normal kind of America racist. The El Paso shooter or the Tree of Life Synagogue attacker are also the kind of killers that fit into an easy narrative. But when the perpetrators stray from that we have a problem dealing with it. In New York City, according to a post by journalist Laura Adkins, data shows that of 69 anti-Jewish crimes in 2018, forty of the perpetrators were labelled ‚Äúwhite‚ÄĚ and 25 were labelled ‚Äúblack,‚ÄĚ the others were categorized as Hispanic or Asian."
Also, many modern Biblical "scholars" and "theologians" do not believe in the accuracy of the Bible. Carol Meyers, a professor from Duke University says "Archaeology is irrelevant to the notion of truth and false with respect to scripture. The truths in the Bible are whether God did what is claimed God did in the Bible, and those cannot be proved true or false by any material means.
Those are matters of belief. Now there‚Äôs another kind of side issue to that about whether the historicity of certain texts can be authenticated by archeological research, and in some sense that is a possible question, but again, that assumes that the Bible is a history book just as history books are that are produced today, which is wasn‚Äôt. Our modern notion of history writing is just that. It‚Äôs a product of the last few centuries. And the narratives and the texts that we have in scripture were never intended to be a factual record of the past."
Yahoo should not only have this in their finance section but put this as front page news on their site. And I don't know why all the other media sites don't publish this great news to their readers. Oh, silly me! This is a result of the Trump economy.
This is very simple to disprove. First, let's agree that most abortions is a surgical operation to remove something that a woman claims is a threat to her life (in this case, her baby). According to guttmacher.org (a site that champions abortions) "Abortion is a common experience: At current rates, about three in ten. American women will have had an abortion by the time she reaches age 45." How many female family members, friends, and co-workers do you know have had abortions? It should average about 3 in 10 and (according to the report). And they should be pretty happy about and not afraid to share the procedure and experience that "saved their life."
Compare this to the experience of people who have survived life saving surgeries and procedures to remove cancer. According to cancer.org "Approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes (based on 2013‚Äď2015 data)." Chances are very high that you not only know family members, friends, and co-workers who have gone through the surgeries and experience. You probably not only found that they were not afraid to share their experience but were thankful and jubilant that the operation and treatment was a success. Who regrets surviving cancer?
The result is not "shocking." Liberals always deny the truth not only about who is human but many other things concerning humanity such as who is male or female, who is a husband and who is a wife, what is good and what is evil, and what constitutes truth and what constitutes a lie. Sounds like they are under a "strong delusion" to me.
