These grumblers need to get a life and keep their noses out of everybody else’s business. So, the Pope met with Kim Davis. Who cares?Are you that insecure in your position that you get upset over a meeting? Wow. Conscience bothering you much?
He DID NOT meet with Kim Davis.
He met with a GROUP of which she was part of.

Trey Gowdy just went down some on my respect of him as a leader if he picks Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan has strayed from conservatism in some major ways.

Big Centralized Government absolutists think that all problems can be solved by the Federal Government. No it’s called enforce the laws already on the books and prosecute the guilty instead of making excuses for lawlessness and empowering the criminals because they think they can get away with crimes. Why is it that these mass shootings have only increased in the last 10 years or so but we have had weapons since our founding as a country??

This after the government is taking in more of the people’s money through higher taxes than ever before and still they are running up the deficit and the debt of this country. Complete and utter foolishness pushed onto us by our leaders. Complete and utter joke. I’m ready to vote for a Trump candidate if only to get rid of these fools who are in power now. I may not agree with Donald Trump on some issues but I agree with him on a great many issues and some of the most important ones of all—illegal immigration, “refugees” and job creation, less regulations etc…
Fun fact: since WW2, total U.S. tax revenue has averaged 19.5% of GDP. Under Obama, it's averaged 15.9%. Last year was his highest yet: 17.5%.
For other comparisons: while total revenue as percent of GDP in the U.S. is 17.5%, in EU countries it is currently 39%, in Japan 21%, Israel 36%, and Canada 29%.
Also, our top marginal tax is now 35%. It was 90% after WW2, 70% under Kennedy, and 28% in Reagan’s last year.

6 They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. 8 But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Matthew 23:6-9
Bigthan84231 “Do not call anyone on earth your fathe” I don’t know how many times I need to hear this stupid explantion of scripture.
forget 2 Peter 3:16 “As also in all his Epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they doe also the other Scriptures, onto their owned destruction” Who do you think that Peter was talking to? Peter was talking to the first Christians who thought they had the best interpretation of the day telling them that some things in Paul’s writings are difficult to understand and to misinterpret it could lead to their own destruction. Even if we knew all scripture and had all sorts of PHD degrees in theology, etc. We will still have all sorts of opinions on what this or what that scripture means. We will not always agree on all things. Where’s the unity Jesus prayed to the Father for us in John 17:21? He prayed that we would be one as He and the Father are one .Not so good when you think there are over 25,000 and growing Protestant religions each claiming to have the right and sometimes contradictory interpretations. Thus we need God’s authorized church leaders with God given infallible authority.
“CALL NO MAN FATHER”
Say Big..... I think you better have a talk to Paul did you see this?Cor. 4:14–15). Paul’s statement, “I do not write this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel” (1In fact, John also addresses men in his congregations as “fathers” Oh about abraham know as the first father in faith. One more just to name a few (1 John 2:13–14).

Because Jesus was gone, He was already raised from the dead. Jesus empowered the Apostles with miracle power to verify the truth of their message and empower the beginnings of the true church of Jesus Christ. Those miracles and speaking for God ceased after the Apostles died off. Peter’s recognition of Jesus as the messiah is the point of Matthew 16:18. It’s not about Peter’s position its about Christ’s true identity.
 September 23, 2015 at 5:43pm
There may be different denominations but if the essential message of the gospel is there that’s fine. There are no pesky interpretations when it comes to the essentials of the gospel, those are clear. The “pesky” interpretations are not that difficult either. And when you interpret properly (understanding the Scripture in the original languages of Greek & Hebrew and some Aramaic) you know what the verse doesn’t say.
 September 23, 2015 at 3:09pm
What’s really sad is that in all this spectacle of the office of Pope which doesn’t exist in the Bible is that the true gospel of saving faith in Christ alone through faith alone with only Christ as our advocate is lost and misrepresented by the Catholic Church which is a distortion and misrepresentation of the gospel of Christ. The authority is in the 66 books of the Bible (Scripture) and not the Roman Church. The apostles themselves that even if an angel came proclaiming a different gospel you (true believers in Christ) should reject that gospel. What the Catholic Church has done goes against the teachings of the Bible plain and simple. It’s not that hard to understand…read the Bible and compare with what the Catholic Church teaches.
Been there... Done that...... No longer a Catholic.......... The end.
1 Thes 2:13, “And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the Word of God repeat Luke 10:16 “He that hears you hears me; and he that despises you despises me; and he that despises me despises him that sent me.” Again It’s too obvious These church leaders were given full authority.
Also Guess by your standards John got this wrong. 1 John 4:6 which says, “We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”. This is very powerful one should read and meditate on these words not just gloss over them. Don’t forget Moses as a mediator or I guess that doesn’t count. What about when you ask someone to pray for you are mediating.
And how many Christian faiths are there now? It is easy to say "just follow the Bible" but how about those pesky interpretations?
Call it what yu want Christ instituted an authority in His Church
in Matthew 16:18" And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it." 19And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whats1 Corinthians 12:28 "God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers" So God says, the Bible says, the word of God says these are the people who will lead us to the truth.oever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
John 16:13" But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth"
God's power can produse miraccles Did the Father send them?
Yelp! He sure did, John 20:21 "Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you."
How did the Father send them? Matthew 28:18 " With all power from heaven" That's how.
the Matthew 28:19"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
Now this proves this authority was passed on because the apostle could not live "unto the end of the world."
I'm with Junkman: Been there, Done that, No longer a Catholic...now a Christian and I'm free!
You are being ignorant. Christ established the Church and asked Peter to lead it. You don't understand Catholicism as the main tenets of the Church are scripturally based. You shouldn't make judgments on things you do not understand.

A Muslim making demands! Who would of thought? Are we really surprised? Get real and face the facts. If you let people into our country who do not respect our country, you will get disrespect. This is only the beginning all you Democratic/RINO dolts who have no brains.
 September 22, 2015 at 6:01pm
There’s one way for the GOP to shine the light on this! Have an interviewer ask the Pope what he thinks of Hillary’s decision on the pipeline.
 September 21, 2015 at 3:57pm
Yeah, why would Ben Carson ever say such a thing about peaceful, law abiding Muslims all over the world? Thank you Ben Carson for saying the obvious. Sharia law has no place in America because you are required to assimilate into our culture and obey our form of government, otherwise you need to leave America and go somewhere else where they tolerate your intimidation. Of course we know that our current “President” will tolerate everything but the next President will put a stop (hopefully) to this ridiculous policies currently being implemented.
 September 21, 2015 at 2:19pm
Muslims who subject themselves to sharia should be forced to leave America! They should of never been allowed to come in because a part of being a “citizen” is assimilation into the American culture.
This is the set up for after Ovomit leaves office and the WH is cleared of the prayer runs facing Mecca--- It'll be A-OK ..."See, a muslim can serve as President!".... Yea, but he can't. Ovomit sided with the muslims at every turn against this country . He is a traitor.

Sorry, Glenn I love you but Fiorina is a disaster. I live in California and we know her well. She’s no conservative and at least Trump admits when he’s changed positions but Fiorina tries to smooth over and ignore her past positions. That’s why I would not trust her at all!
 September 17, 2015 at 3:22pm
Wow. Very encouraging and challenging to think about. We do forget the blessings we have in America. One thing that stood out to me is that the most important part of this is the eternity question of knowing Jesus Christ. You can be rich and have no worries in this world and die and go to hell because of a rejection of Christ. Don’t reject Him turn to Him, admit you are a sinner and ask for His forgiveness that is the point.
 September 17, 2015 at 1:27pm
I’m so sick of hearing about “black lives matter!” What about Asian, Hispanic or Russian lives? In other words it should be all lives matter. It’s just sickening how myopic this whole issue has become. Sad days in America.
