Jim, why exactly do you recommend a â€śBibleâ€ť that changes the word â€śsodomitesâ€ť to â€śperverted persons?â€ť Oh, I get it! Sodomites wonâ€™t acknowledge that their lifestyle is perverted, so of course the verses that use that phrase arenâ€™t referring to them. And donâ€™t you just love the way the NKJV manages to put blood and faith in Romans 3:25 without specifying that it is FAITH IN HIS BLOOD that counts? I wouldnâ€™t give a plug nickel for the NKJV. Just another money-grubbing perversion of scripture like your beloved ESV.
Sorry, my figures on alcohol-related deaths were in comparison to the 50,000 deaths mentioned in your clipping, Jim, and not the current death toll. Still, three times as many Americans die from smoking every single year as we have lost so far to coronavirus.
1. Show me the scripture that says a church must have a website. 2. Far more people die every single year in America from alcohol-related causes than have died so far from COVID-19. Booze is the third-leading cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. Why donâ€™t Fauci and Biden get on the soapbox about drinking? Where is Bill Gates and his long needle when it comes to putting the kibosh on the bottle?
Dr. Shelton Smith, President and Editor of the Sword of the Lord, summed up the position of American liberals (meaning Democrats) when he wrote, â€śThey hate the Bible, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. They hate capitalism and free enterprise. They want the government to own everything and control everybody. They are clamoring for socialism without telling you that it is communism they will give you.â€ť The Christianâ€™s response to liberalism should be the same as Billy Sundayâ€™s stance on sin. That old firebrand said, â€śListen, I'm against sin. I'll kick it as long as I've got a foot, I'll fight it as long as I've got a fist, Iâ€™ll butt it as long as I've got a head, and I'll bite it as long as I've got a tooth. And when I'm old, fistless, footless, and toothless, I'll gum it till I go home to glory and it goes home to perdition.â€ť
Biden should mandate his sorry self to the basement heâ€™s been hiding in for months and stay there till the coroner comes. Elmer Fudd would make a more dynamic, not to mention more intelligent, president than Sleepy Joe.
Psalms 68:21â€“But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses. Jim, I know youâ€™ve been told and told and told, but Iâ€™m warning you again old sport, youâ€™re on a collision course with the Holy Headbuster.
Jim, Iâ€™m sure the Green New Deal and Medicare for all, with their near-infinite price tags, will go a long way toward revitalization of the economy, as will throwing the borders open for any and all who want to cross them, putting even more Americans out of work. And much higher taxes always help Americans to prosper. If you believe Quid Pro Joe and the Camel are going to help the economy, your head is as empty as their hearts.
Christians in America being compelled to financially support Planned (Lack of) Parenthood may not be quite as drastic as the steps being taken in China, but at least itâ€™s a good beginning for the marxist/maoist element in the U.S. If you can imprison, disenfranchise, and confiscate all the property of, Christians who refuse to â€śrender unto Caesar,â€ť as our dear Jim Lincoln puts it, in this area, pretty soon you can lock them up for other radical actions such as going to church. Oh waitâ€”you can already do that, canâ€™t you?
So Jim, when the Democrats finally repeal the Hyde Amendment and force Christians to pay for abortionsâ€”or, more accurately, pay for more abortions than we already doâ€”are you going to buck and withhold a portion of your federal taxes? Nah. What is one dismembered infant more or less compared to weighty matters like those pesky Christians trying to force morality on others through legislation? Defund the police! Kill babies and old folks! Outlaw laws! Death to Christians! You think I exaggerate? Fine. See how many of the savages who are burning and pillaging in Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis and elsewhere plan to vote Republican this year.
I was under the impression that a group of gentlemen in Philadelphia in the late 18th Century declared a rather sizable portion of North America as a sanctuary for church worship, and that said declaration should extend to such other ateas as should be later annexed to the original area, but apparently the moldy old document those fellows published doesnâ€™t carry the same weight as a royal fiat by the Emperor of California.
