Great Sermon! Whether or not America is done is up to God, not politicians. But it wouldnât hurt for believers to plead for mercy, would it? Consider also we arenât alone in this slide into the darkness. The whole world is on the same path.
Great Sermon! It is better to have States that oppose abortion among those that do not, than to have a national government with authority to supersede them all, and promote murder of the unborn with no opposition, which is coming soon. The logic of critics of Amendment 10 fails. Since the reality of the fallen nature of man exists, it is better to limit any power that fallen men have over others, as long as the prince of this world remains prince of this world. In the meantime, there will be no Biblical government until the Lord returns and sets it up.
Great Sermon! They do indeed seem to be replacements for Christ. As cultural Christianity increases, as churches seek to please the culture, and obey man rather than God, spiritual emptiness develops. Looking to superheroes is a response to that emptiness. People are going to have something to believe in. Sadly this can be in cartoon characters, which is what superheroes are. But in our thinking, we should not place the cart before the horse when we hold that superheroes are a cause of the negative issues. Their increasing presence is an effect. Itâs reasonable to conclude that increasing presence may be laid at the feet of those churches that put their lampstand in the closet.

Censorship of the president by left wingnut social media. Wonder who theyâll censor next? Maybe mayors and governors of places where actual rioters burn buildings, âpeaceful demonstratorsâ cordon off whole sections of cities with armed guards, invade and occupy police stations and federal buildings, attack people passing by, etc.? Nah, thatâs their right to peaceable assembly, and you canât take away their free speech, donât you know.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Mike, videos can be manipulated so just because it's a video doesn't guarantee that it's showing what it should be âđ â- ~~~~~~~ Yes, it should always be remembered--- "A Christian should view the separation of church and state as a good thing. Those who wish to combine church and state usually do so thinking that Christianity can help stamp out evil, if the church is in charge. But history shows that the melding of church and state gives rise to corruption, totalitarianism, and oppression. Christians can and should be involved in the political process, just as anyone else. But Jesus said, âMy kingdom is not of this worldâ (John 18:36), and Christians understand that enforcing Christianity through a national church [or political party âđ] is not the answer to the worldâs problems" "How should a Christian view the separation of church and state?" â-
Your entire paragraph pertaining to separation of church and state has nothing to do with voting fraud. You really have a hard time with focus, Jim. Maybe itâs breathing all that methane from the rotting swamp vegetation. Get some air. When you can focus again, read the Bible. Itâs better to get directions from there, than from the Party.
Jim Lincoln wrote: --- All this fixed election I do has been discredited by former attorney general Barr and the Secretary of State for Georgia. Now if you say that's my thesis I think it's already been proven âđ
If someone tries to discredit what has been shown on video to have happened, by saying what happened didn't happen, then the most likely reality is they are liars, or just real dumb. Frankly, I think fraud deniers are both.
I gave up on conspiracy theory some time back, when I began to realize it wasn't theory anymore. Either things are unfolding as they are by accident, or they are being manipulated to do what is being done. When things seem to continually go in the same negative direction, the accident approach comes out short. It matters not whether man's dumb and sinful nature is behind it, or whether Satan, whose time is short, is more directly involved. It's not a Christian's place to help it either way.
Jim Lincoln wrote: If Trump means what he says, then he should resign and turn the presidency over to Mike Penceâđ Mike Pence could also pardon him and it would be a meaningful one rather then Trump trying to pardon himself. He will probably most likely be impeached again if he doesn't do this.
No pardon is needed, Jim. All the false accusations you and your fellow Orcs make are just so much noise, as they have been for 5 years. You think rightly that Trump is a proud man. Now try to listen to yourself to hear deeper pride.
Ps, the only carnage committed in the recent events was committed by the âprotectors of democracyâ on a female 14 year veteran. What did she do to deserve death, Jim? Wake up and smell the stuff you sling.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Former attorney general Barr a liberal, Mike "Betrayal of his office:â Ex-Attorney General Bill Barr denounces Trump for inciting riot" https://tinyurl.com/y5q6rpgr There are legal actions that could be taken against Mr. Trump, but they probably won't happen in the next 14 days.
One point-the swamp attracts all sorts of creatures, and the most important thing to them is keep it filled. Any threat to that is unacceptable. Trump has been a threat. 1+1=2
First Amendment say you (and Trump) have right of free speech. Unlike your side, I won't strive to take that right away, so please do continue posting nonsense while your side still allows it.
No, there are no legal actions that could be taken against Trump for what somebody else does. Besides, ask yourself who benefits most by any of this? It certainly isn't Trump. Now your mind can be free to explore the answer.
Ok then, perhaps you would be willing to do more than post words with little meaning, and give specific examples of Trump inciting a riot. Even give Barr's specific examples. What did Trump SAY that could incite a riot. (btw, there was no riot, we had riots last summer that were labeled peaceful protests, remember?)
Jim Lincoln wrote: excerpt from,"Assault on democracy: Sen. Josh Hawley has blood on his hands in Capitol coup attempt" https://tinyurl.com/y3gnzjxl Civil war? Very doubtful it wouldn't be profitable.
I love how the left projects itâs deeds onto others.
1. There was no assault on Democracy. If we assume Antifa didnât infiltrate, and all is as it is being said to be, the assault might have been to get the attention of the deaf and gassy anti-democratic, anti-American, pro-socialists in the Congress. (But wouldnât we have to be naive to think Antifa, or some more normally well dressed types would miss the opportunity?)
2. There was no coup attempt yesterday. The most recent coup attempt was on the evening of Election Day, with the corrupted vote count.
3. The blood that was shed by DC police was of a woman, a military vet. Despite the clutter of the reporting, I hope this is investigated
I too doubt the likelihood of civil war. Logistical nightmare, and all military officers oath is to the Constitution, not higher officers, nor the president. Military minimally would be divided. The treasonous Left would ultimately lose. Expecting that the whole military would join with them seems unrealistic.

A little more info:
I'm not typically big on polls, but a very recent Gallup poll had Trump as most admired, finally getting Obama off #1. Biden on the other hand, got 7%. Makes you wonder how he won an election with more popular vote than anyone in history.
Neil, that was the first thought that came when I saw it. It would have been easy enough to do.

Or, there might not be much of anything to hear. We have to take into account the diminishing credibility of the intelligence agencies over the last few years, due to harping about Russian influence, that turned out to be false. Meanwhile China gets a pass no matter what it does.

Arenât you concerned that this Democrat pastor will try to force the kingdom on others, what with getting involved in politics and such?
I always wonder how those believing a certain thing would answer the question âWhat if Iâm not one of the elect?â Would they tell them they are losers deserving of the wrath of God, or be more sympathetic and say, Iâm sorry, but God just wants you to to go to Hell for his glory?
I know we all can find verses we like best, but I still wonder about practical application of what we believe.
