No, the point you seem to miss, is not what you think about the style or nature in which he died, but that HE chose how to live and how to die. Is there something, anything that you will stand for enough to die for? Even if it seems such a waste to other people?

Blink, Nature itself says you are a moron. Go ahead and keep rationalizing to yourself, but it doesn’t change nature no matter how hard you blather.

That’s OK jb, many are not sure. But…..if one only reads Gods word, they’ll find the truth.

Your chosen name is obviously spot on. Perhaps someday you’ll learn there is a correct way and a wrong way to “question” that authority. But you really aren’t interested in being part of the solution. Your comments show you aren’t any different from these thug kids. You want what you want and damn the person who gets in your way. Nice.

I think you misunderstand. I would absolutely agree with your comments about spreading the word. However, except for the feeding of the 5000 and the feeding of the 4000, where did Jesus or the Disciples go around feeding the poor?
If you have compassion for the hungry, then by all means feed them (you are, aren’t you?), but exactly how does the act of feeding them spread the Gospel? They need the Gospel because they are “poor” in spirit and above all things need salvation. (As do we all). The tower fell on the 18 and Jesus didn’t tell the others asking about what sin did they commit, to go around making sure the other buildings were safe, but to repent because the same thing could happen to them.
Luke 14:13-14; Matthew 11:4-5; Proverbs 31:8-9; Proverbs 21:13; Matthew 25:41-45; Proverbs 17:5; I Timothy 6:17-19; Ezekiel 16:49; Proverbs 29:7…. It’s all throughout the Bible that the poor should be taken care of. Spreading the gospel is important, so is mercy and compassion. We show the world the message of Jesus by our love. Without our actions, our words mean nothing. This is the message of the book of James.
I enjoy the book of James.
James was a brother of Jesus, and so was Jude.
It is cool to read from brothers of Jesus.
redhead.Shmiggsy-The Book of James is where I started in my walk back to Christ. Interesting that James, as the 1/2 Brother of Jesus, was not a follower until after His death and Resurrection. The theme of "Faith without Deeds is dead" doesn't appear to mean you need a $65,000,000 jet to accomplish said deeds.
" Screw the Gospel, give me some food," cried the desperate mother, " My children are very hungry !"
" We didn't bring any food," the Christian Missionary calmly explained, " but would you like a bible?" " We call this 'God food'.
" You're an idiot," the mother said in frustration.
" You'll thank us later" replied the Christian confidently.

The Constitution NEVER guarantees anything. It is simply a document of ideals that are either adhered to or the people then use the power of the first amendment and vote to bring in servants who will uphold the document. In extreme cases, the second amendment can be used. The only question is how badly do you want it.

Officer guilty of manslaughter. No doubt. BUT…..
Would you people please also turn your disgust to the guy running away from the police like it’s a game? If he hadn’t of run, he’d be alive. Bad policeman, bad citizen. One doesn’t out weight the other.

enzo, you really couldn’t be more wrong.
While it doesn’t seem to be the case here, if a person is armed and has shown willingness to use deadly force, shooting someone in the back is absolutely justified. It’s not about some macho cowboy Dodge City draw first ideal.

Could you explain why Jesus didn’t accept the “rich young ruler” and exposed his sin to him? Or the one who wanted to follow, but first wanted to bury his father? Or the masses that showed up at Peter’s house looking for healing where Jesus told them they must go to the next town to preach the Gospel because “that’s what He came for”?
Speaking with people to share the Gospel is always a good thing, but we are also told not to cast our pearls before swine. (In other words, don’t share the gospel with those who don’t want to hear it lest you be ripped to shreds and those good words be trampled into the ground.
We don’t win anyone. It’s not about our being nice and “building” relationships, but to simply preach the Gospel with a heart for the lost. The power is in the Word. Not our delivery.

Wow, mocking a person mocking you. Difference is that your’s is simply a personal attack that doesn’t have any logic to it or point to it. You couldn’t do a better job of showing people how much of a moron you are if you tried.

They will get even lower. After all, it is the logical conclusion if one is to believe in evolution. The question to them then isn’t why, but why not.
Yes, it will get much worse.

Geez, Kron, why not just think for yourself? Use your brains instead of your feelings.
 February 19, 2015 at 8:47am
And yet, meat, Trump is still so much more successful than you can ever dream to be.
Even with that, you still have the ignorance to try to vilify. It’s no fun looking into the mirror, is it?
 February 19, 2015 at 8:31am
You seem to totally ignore the obvious. Of course, you chastise one side, but not the other. The question is why don’t you see other human beings as equals? Do you speak out equally against the “black” message?
We are all equal and should be treated equally and we should have the same reaction regardless of who is behaving badly. Otherwise, we don’t truly believe what we say we believe.

It’s like talking to a fence post, isn’t it desert?
February 17, 2015 at 9:03am
Where to begin. I’ll just pick one.
“What effect do you think the death penalty really has on them then? Certainly NOT as a deterrent – right?”
Zap has no ability to come to any rational thought as proven by this comment. Totally ignores the fact that it keeps that particular offender from ever committing another crime. But past that, offers no rational thought on why it couldn’t possibly be a deterrent, just declares that it can’t.
Your concern for the innocent is commendable, but your position only guarantees that the guilty are not only not punished, but are available to commit future crimes. So you throw rational thought down the drain to prop up your feelings which are on full display from your last comment on how you really don’t want a discussion on the death penalty. People who are on shaky footing rarely want their delusions exposed. They even tend to get angry.
And to even address your first question, Yes, laws only affect the law abiding “IF” the law isn’t enforced. That’s the rub, isn’t it. You claim to want the law, but then piss your pants when they are enforced and you find an overwhelming number of your precious preferred people incarcerated. You talk out of both sides of your mouth.

Good luck with that. If you could keep the commandments, Christ wouldn’t have had to be crucified.
 February 16, 2015 at 4:22pm
Just read it Prof, and you’ll answer your own question.
 February 13, 2015 at 7:53am
The entire post is evidence of one who does not use thinking to arrive at the truth. You reference thinking as any idea necessary to hold to an ideology. It might make you feel good, but in the end, you’re just wrong.
 February 4, 2015 at 8:54am
Good grief, Mil. Get over your Ventura man crush.
I don’t know the truth about him and Kyle, but he’s outing himself with his own mouth and you seem bent on doing the same thing.
