In order for an offensives foul to be called, the defender would have needed to be stationary in a defensively position AND outside of the restricted area arc. Clearly seen in the video, he was inside the restricted arc, and leaping into the air. The favored player theory doesn’t hold much weight, as Knight has more notoriety than Jordan.

The Nets won 93-30?! That’s gotta be another record!
I agree. Which is why I would still sue for the 2.2 million, and use the proceeds to pay the notes of just about anyone from that dealership that would let me.

God does care. He has given us His word and Spirit to enable us to overcome the depravity of sin, which always matures into death. The problem in our society is that we have rejected His word and favored temporal pleasantries of the flesh, and sought to remove God and His statutes from every level of culture. What astonishes me is that it is usually individuals who vote for representatives that push abortion, gay rights, and just about everything else that stands in contrast to the word of God, who put into office men and women that believe God has no place in education, politics, or governmental affairs, that are the first to cry out ‘Where is God?’ The simple answer is that he is outside the door that you have closed in His face and locked, waiting to be let in so that He might help you with your troubles.

II Kings 2:23-24.
Sounds like a couple she-bears could help here…

There is no question that God is merciful, but to say that Judas repented and received mercy is twisting scripture dangerously. First of all, when Matthew 27:3 records that Judas repented himself, it does not mean that he plead the blood of Jesus over his sins to receive forgiveness. As it says, he was under condemnation. Therefore, his repentance was simply an act of going back on his original intent to keep the money. Even if you do interpret this as meaning that he repented and was forgiven, you seem to have completely left out the part where he killed himself, and act for which you CANNOT seek forgiveness.
Secondly, John 21 has nothing to do with Judas. The beloved disciple, John, was asking Jesus what was to be done with Peter, the one who betrayed the Lord by denying him three times. It has nothing to do with Judas.
I am all for making the case for God’s wonderful and abundant mercy, but not by twisting scripture as you seem to be doing.

If that is the case, Lukerw, it was unwise for Judas to completely miss the message of Matthew 16:21-23.
Jesus’ interaction with Satanic thought are worthy of study. In one case He said, “Get thee behind me,” and in another he said, “What thou doest, do quickly.”
