This is a good way to find out who is really faithful to America.

Spoiled brats ruining the game. Goodbye NFL. I hope a majority of the fans will stop going to the games and quit supporting an organization that will not stand up for law and order and the police.

True, but everyone blames other people for their failures or laziness. It’s a human condition.
September 9, 2016 at 5:08pm
Keep it up NFL players and see what happens. You will see the majority of law abiding citizens who respect the police and law and order dump you guys and your exorbitant salaries! Then we will see how many of you will kneel during the national anthem. Why don’t you guys give us specific examples of mass abuse of black people by police? There are only a handful and bad cops should be prosecuted. Wake up it’s not just black people that this happens to…people of all races experience this.
If you bother to do a little research( I know, I know, Trump supporters don't like doing any research), you'll find that African American males are indeed are being abused by the police system; nothing in facing imprisonment for being caught with drugs and for being shot at while being unarmed.
This research will make you feel uncomfortable because you've been led to believe differently for most of your life; but just ask yourself this;
If Black skinned people are all objecting about this systemic abuse by the police, what makes you so sure that they are just making this up?
For your sympathy?
Where there is smoke there is fire...
Do your research before blatantly denying their truth.
That's the least you could do...

Or in reality Jesus was referring to Peter’s confession not Peter himself as an office. Otherwise why did Jesus call Paul? Also, why would Peter have died before the Apostle John if Peter was the so-called “Pope?”
...and to add to your comment, why did the Catholics feel it was okay to overlay a structure and rigidity onto Christianity that Christ himself did not ever support?
We Catholics would show you but your rigid belief in ignora scriptura AKA sola scriptura would probably keep you from seeing truth.
Gita, I would be happy if you just show me in scripture where Jesus created the Catholic church (and no, sending the apostles and disciples out to spread the word and minister to the people is missionary work...not building an earthly megalithic church). So please do tell...share with me where Jesus established the Catholic church. I see where He and his disciples met outdoors and in people's homes and spread the word accordingly. Please do share and educate me.
RollTide315 Jesus did start only ONE, HOLY , Catholic and Apostolic Church.This is why there can only be one true church not 35,000 plus churches each CONTRADICTING the other.
Matthew 18:17 "And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto you as a heathen man and a tax collector" Note the bible doesn't say get your bibles and hash it out .the word of God says to tell it to the church. Which Church? The catholic church!
Matthew 16:15-18New King James Version (NKJV)
15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
. Eph. 2:20 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
Ephesians 3:10New King James Version (NKJV)
"10 to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places."
cont.. Now to the pope Ephesians 1
", 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, "
Tim. 3:15; Heb. 13:7, 17
Christ said of his Church, "He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me" (Luke 10:16).Thus they were given authority.
@roll Do you want to learn or are you just being condescending? Do you read Revelation as part of the bible or do you ignore it? The Mass which is only found in the Catholic Church is described all throughout the book of Revelation. Too detailed for me to get into on this board. You can read all about it in the book called The Lamb’s Supper written by Dr. Scott Hahn former protestant minister now Catholic theologian and professor. If you truly want to be educated read it. If you want to ignore it and prove my above statement is true then don’t.
And yet again, BeG, you cite scripture where Christ is not advocating for a Catholic church at all--yet advocating for the spreading and teaching of His word...nowhere in there do I see any specific denomination. You cite scripture that is common for all Christian denominations because we all follow Christ...and yet you attempt to use it to justify a specific denomination.
You still have yet to show any scripture that shows the establishment for the Catholic church. Please show me where he says that he is establishing a Catholic church.
Roll " Please show me where he says that he is establishing a Catholic church.." first show where everything is suppose to be in the bible? Do you believe in the Trinity if so where is that in the bible? Also for a christian what is the pillar and bull work of the truth? I'll be waiting for your reply.
BeG, Christ established Christianity and sent forth His disciples and apostles to spread His word and minister to his church (which is the body of followers–not a huge, wealthy political entity on earth. Christ eschewed earthly power and political authority. So yes, His establishment of His church is in the Bible. There is not one verse or citation in which He commanded the apostles or disciples to build that earthly political entity that we know as the Catholic church. However, since Catholics claim that Peter was the first Catholic pope and that the Catholic church was established by Christ, you should be able to show me a verse where he does that very thing.
Come on, BeG, I keep asking and not one verse can be cited. Instead, every Catholic tries to divert and dissemble and ventures into ad hominem attacks or makes some accusation in attempt to distract. Come on, just provide the verse(s) where Christ established the Catholic church.
Roll.. I notice that you failed to answer my questions. So I am asking you again 1) Do you believe in the Trinity? Why? Where is it in the bible? 2} ..Again is everything that Christian believes need to be in the bible where ? I am still waiting for your reply don't be shy. If you fail to answer these basic questions then you prove to me that you are uninformed in biblical matters. Since you are uninformed why should I listen to you?
" (which is the body of followers " Wrong Jesus is the head of the catholic church which is His body. Note Anyone who separates the Word of God from the Church, the Body of Christ, creates his own church in his own image Matthew 16:18-20 18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[c] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.” You best rethink what those key mean roll or what it means that the gates of hell will never overcome it means.
" There is not one verse or citation in which He commanded the apostles or disciples to build that earthly political entity that we know as the Catholic church."Wrong " The gates of hell will not go against His church Matthew 16:18-20
BeG, why should I ever answer anything from you if you cannot answer the very first question asked of you? Come on, brother.
The Bible confirms that Christ's church is the body of his followers--not some megalithic, hierarchical politically-involved entity. All Christians look to the Bible--to Christ's teachings and I am not against the Catholic church being Christian. What I am challenging you is to prove the assertion made by yourself and other Catholics on this thread that the Catholic church was created by Christ.
I am still waiting for you (or anyone) to show me that verse. It does not exist. What does exist is Christ's teachings that we, as Christians, follow--and it is outright hubris and human arrogance for anyone to assert that theirs is the "one true church established by Christ"--when we all believe the same teachings of Christ and worship Him as the Son of God.
Still waiting, bro.
Roll "Still waiting, bro." no bro your still hiding from the truth. I repeat what does the bible , the word of God call the pillar and ground of truth. Hint ,John 8:32 " And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" To set us free means to save us. This is critical for us to know the truth to be saved John 14:7 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. So truth is a person! To deny the truth is to deny Jesus. What did Jesus tell Pilot John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. So truth is obviously an important commodity. So what does Scripture say is the " pillar and ground of the truth"? I all out to you to trust the bible completely in it's entirely that is and not picking , choosing, then twisting it into your own destruction.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 Peter was speaking to bro? They were folks like you that's who. Like you thinking they know more then Paul like you bro only it won't work like that!
Jesus changed Simon’s name to “Rock,” said He’d build His Church on this “Rock,” said He was giving Peter aka “Rock,” the “keys to the kingdom of heaven,” and the authority to “bind and loose.” (Matt. 16:18).
When Jesus stated this, He quoted from Isaiah 22, which references the office of “prime minister” of the Davidic Kingdom. In ancient Israel, the king had a prime minister to help him govern the kingdom, and govern in his stead when he was away. The prime minister to the king of the Davidic Kingdom wore the “keys to the kingdom” on his shoulder, and had the judicial authority to “open & shut” aka “bind & loose”
Jesus is the King of Kings who sits on the throne of David. In Matt. 16:18, He was essentially proclaiming to be King, establishing His Kingdom (the Church), complete with the office of prime minister, which He appointed Peter to. In ancient Israel, the office of prime minister was passed on in succession, just as it has been for 2,000 yrs in the Church. Jesus commanded Peter to “feed My lambs…tend My sheep…feed My sheep,” and He prayed singularly for Peter, that his faith would not fail, and told Peter to “strengthen his brothers” (other disciples). The pope’s job is to shepherd Christ’s flock in truth, and maintain unity until Jesus returns at the Parousia.
Here's a good Biblical explanation of the papacy:
"Reasons to Believe: Papal Primacy"
No BeG, not hiding from anything--and I notice that you cannot cite one single time where our Lord and Savior called for the establishment of a hugely-political, extremely hierarchical and opulent entity such as the Catholic church.
He did, on many occasions, speak about His body of followers as the church...people, BeG, not a huge hierarchy. He called on His apostles and disciples to spread His word (as missionaries have always done) and to tend to and support the new Christian communities to help them stay on-track and following His word...not once did He call for anything resembling the Catholic church. Oh, and if you take a look at the actions of many popes over the centuries, you will find a great many good biblical actions and a number of heinous and certainly unbiblical actions. Yet somehow you continue to proclaim the infallibility of the pope (who is selected by vote by other human beings who are part of the hierarchy of the church). lol.
Rolltide, well Jesus did set up His Church with a heiarchy. Quite honestly, without the hierarchy and some kind of organization, we wouldn't have the Christian Bible as we know it today, or Christianity as we know it. The Church with the heiarchy is what has fended off numerous heresies over the centuries, and has preserved the truth. The Bible says that the Church is the "pillar and foundation of truth" (1 Timothy 3:15), and the promise of being "led by the Holy Spirit into ALL truth," was a promise given to the Church founded upon the Apostles, this was not a promise given to each and every individual Christian - if it was, then we should expect that every individual Christian would come to the exact same interpretations and understanding of the faith, but this is not the case; instead, we have thousands upon thousands of conflicting & contradicting interpretations, beliefs, & practices coming from individuals who all believe that they were led to the correct understandings. This is why we have 40,000+ competing denoms & non-denoms and a rise of "I don't need a church, or religion, rogue Christians", all having varying degrees of actual truth. That's just a result of the Protestant revolution...imagine if Christians were left on their own from the beginning? The Protestant idea of an "invisible church" is extremely divided, and they can't even agree on just who belongs to this so-called "church". "A kingdom that is divided against itself, is a kingdom that cannot stand."
Rolltide, the Church is led by the Holy Spirit. Papal infallibility only happens when the pope is speaking “ex-cathedra” on doctrinal matters of faith & morals. It actually happens very rarely, and none of the pope’s I’ve lived through have ever spoken “ex-cathedra.” Basically, it pertains to defining as doctrine or dogma, an orthodox Apostolic belief which has passed on through Apostolic tradition from the very beginning. E.g., the Trinity, although not explicitly defined in the Bible, was an Apostolic belief that was defined somewhat later, to be infallible dogma.
Jesus did not promise that all leaders in the Church would be perfectly holy, but He did promise that His Church would never be destroyed. We’ve only had a small handful of truly scandalous “bad pope’s” but, even they were not able to change any Church teachings to their liking (or to support their bad behavior), and the Church survived through them. Being pope does not automatically make one a saint, and it does not guarantee them a place in heaven.. It is the “office” that is protected, not the person. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for being hypocrites, & not living up to their teachings, but He told His disciples and followers that they were still to obey the teaching of the Pharisees because they sat in “Moses seat,” and were teaching the truth, with the authority given by God. The Chair of Peter, now fulfills the Chair of Moses.

Exactly, they go directly against what’s taught in the Bible clearly. One example Mary had sons and daughters and was a sinful woman in need of a Savior. But the Catholic Church exalts her to a position that she never claimed nor did God ever give her. Sure, it was an honor to be the mother of Jesus but Mary cried out herself about the need of a savior. Just one example of the Catholic Church’s distortions of the truth.
WHAT????? Mary was a sinful woman????? Where the heck do you get your info from?? You are just a hater of the true church of Jesus, therefore, you just make it up as you go.
Bigthan84231 " Mary had sons and daughters" LOL Where do you get this nonsense.God exalts Mary first.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHiT0nZe22w
They don't make it up they are ignora scriptura AKA sola scriptura followers.
Thumbs down LOL and no one could answer my question. That what I call useful idiots to the fullest degree.
still no answers?? just crickets? Proof these Silly folks don't even know why they put a thumb down.
 September 2, 2016 at 11:45am
Of course don’t you remember Jesus watering the trees? Don’t you remember Jesus saying “Blessed are those who are kind to the environment?” Another evidence of the corruption of the Catholic Church or anyone else who adds to the Word of God (66 Books of the Bible).
@big If you knew history you would know where the bible came from. Lol it DID NOT fall out of the sky. We are told not to remove anything from scripture either in the original 72 books of the bible.

Gee, How could anyone ever have any misunderstandings about peaceful Islam? Such sweet forgiving people they are. I’m so sorry for my “bigoted” concerns for safety.
 August 3, 2016 at 3:08pm
Blah, Blah Blah. Go back to your Middle Eastern Backwards country instead. You need to live by our laws. Of course we all know what will happen. The stupid liberal idiots will come to their defense. That’s why I’m voting for Trump.
There are no laws against wearing a veil. You guys would be going ballistic if she was kicked out for wearing a cross.
 August 2, 2016 at 6:18pm
Obama & Clinton are the Unfit Ones! Those guilty of the crime are the ones to accuse others of their own weaknesses. Obama is anything but a “President” he is a destructive, divisive person and people with common sense know it. It’s a self evident truth.
 June 16, 2016 at 3:50pm
This kid demonstrates that we all can really get along in spite of our differences.
 June 16, 2016 at 10:58am
Well, Shazaam! Who would of ever thought this could be possible under this “brilliant” “President”? Now, they start waking up as Obama is almost out of office? Of course because all they do is blame shift and take no responsibility.
84231: Yes. I think O , sold as out ' bi-racil uniter , ' was droned in here to create as much racial division and financial and judicial chaos as possible. Then to leave the mess for the next administration . We will be dealing with the chaos these Far Left Obama radicals have created for a long time.
June 15, 2016 at 11:27am
The worldview of those engaged in this sinful lifestyle is all about themselves. It’s called selfishness, which is the cause of any sin. I know most don’t see it that way but that’s what the Bible teaches.
 June 10, 2016 at 11:38am
Good luck with that one! Don’t use the brain God gave you. Depraved minds of Romans 1 unite and that is what is happening. Read your bibles (if you use them) Union “Theological Seminary.”
 June 3, 2016 at 2:37pm
Mark Driscoll has discredited himself. He is no pastor.
I don't know who he is... I just looked at what he said.
God can make rocks talk if He wants to.
 June 2, 2016 at 2:46pm
Better way to say it is…”All my life I’ve tried to do it on my own.” You can’t do it on your own. As a true Christian if you love Christ, you desire to resist sin, flee sin not coddle sin. If Trey is a believer (which it sounds like he never was) than he is living in disobedience because the Bible is clear on homosexuality as a sin. Just like adultery, greed or pride it’s a sin.
 June 2, 2016 at 2:39pm
Never heard of him. Good way to get your name out there even if it is for perversion. What you have to admit to when you come to Jesus is that you are born a sinner with certain tendencies. If you are truly a Christian you will have a desire to fight against sin, not give in to it without repentance. I don’t know Trey but God forgives. Don’t give in to the world.
No. But it’s interesting to see who and what Obama responds to. The reason people are suspicious is because if it’s illegal, criminal, or challenges the norms we know Obama will support. But if it’s wholesome, pro-America, military or traditional family traditions or values then that’s evil and needs to be avoided or will not recognize. Only 232 more days of this loser.
 June 1, 2016 at 2:33pm
You are the wrong race (no pun intended). You must have white privilege of some kind to win. No phone call from Activist In Chief Obama.
