Blood is definitely a “read the back cover of a book” individual. Never actually reads the content for understanding.
If you would watch what someone does, and not what they say, you’d have a better foundation. I know it wouldn’t further your agenda, but there it is.

To a young man speaking with Westmoreland and being told he could be admitted to West Point and there wouldn’t be any cost sounds a lot like a valid reason for a person to claim he was being offered admittance to West Point with a scholarship.
There seems to be one reason why people are getting wrapped around the axle on this and it doesn’t have anything to do with truth, but their own agenda’s.
" a young man speaking with Westmoreland"
From what I've read, this is the other problem with Carson's account. Westmoreland wasn't in Detroit on Memorial Day in 1969, when Carson claims he was offered the scholarship. His schedule states that he was in DC all weekend.
“There seems to be one reason why people are getting wrapped around the axle on this and it doesn’t have anything to do with truth, but their own agenda’s.”
Agreed. Of all the “gaffes” Carson has made, this is nowhere near the worst. The only reason it’s gaining traction, in my opinion, is because it’s gotten such a rise out of the man himself.
TT2 - Westmoreland was in Detroit in 1969 for an event just as Carson described it. The only thing Carson's 40 or 50 year old recollection got wrong was the date. This is not a gaffe. Just a minor fault in an old memory.
This is not at all like an adult telling you that 1 or 2 years ago they corkscrew landed in a hot zone and had to run across an airfield, head down to avoid sniper fire, when they actually had an uneventful landing and attended a ceremony right outside the plane on the tarmac. This is not a gaffe. It is an outright lie.
I only mention the Hillary lie to illustrate the difference between something truly worth making a story of vs the ridiculous and trivial story the media makes of someones very old memory having a very slight error.
Think Again - so Carson didn't meet Westmoreland??? The date was incorrect so therefore it's a lie? You're nuts.
That's like calling me a liar because I said I met my wife on October 28th and not November 3rd.
You're reaching and your agenda is blatant.
Btw Carson is not my pick. I just know the difference between right and wrong.

>>Maybe I’m just Super Man, who knows.>>
A more likely explanation is that you really don’t know what your talking about. Everything fits nice and comfy in the confines of your imagination until reality intrudes. And reality doesn’t really care about your (our) feelings.

bava, are you looking for understanding her actions, or looking for a reason to excuse them?
Actions have consequences. Otherwise, why would we not just do as we please?

I hear ya Rapture, but how does offspring happen outside of mating with your own kind? Doesn’t that violate “after their kind”?

How exactly was Lucifer “kicked out” of heaven when in Job and Revelation he is there before the throne?
My reading shows he was “fallen” (past) and will be cast down (future).

Great words Stamp.
So many denominations out there because they would rather believe their own conjectures (creations). Our understanding is either our own, or it’s from God. As you say, scripture MUST be used to interpret scripture. Isn’t it interesting where the Bible repeatedly says Man’s understanding leads to death.

>>materializing into flesh and having sex with women>>
What about the in Genesis where it says “they will bring forth after their own kind”
So, how would that be possible?

I appreciate that you lock yourself in a room and never come out. I appreciate that you never actually learned how to use any appliance, tool or machinery due to their inherent safety issues. You must live in a society where there simply are no people who wish to do others harm. The rest of us don’t have those delusions and we live in the real world. We get it. You’re pathetic and shouldn’t be trusted with a gun, knife or hair curler.
You are a sheeple who lives at the very edge of others kindness and consent. You don’t recognize that you are in control of yourself and therefore don’t recognize others are also in control of themselves and they sometimes wish to do others harm. Most of those wanting to do harm don’t use a gun. But hey, don’t let the facts get in the way of your emotions.

You are lucky it wasn’t a gopher. You never know what hole they are going to come out of. Vicious.
Yes the Bible does say that Divorce is a sin. Except when? Surely you are well versed on scripture to be able to easily answer that. Right?
“There are passages that say one male/one female marriages are one acceptable form, but the Bible also has many examples of polygamy”
Really? One acceptable form? Scripture calls that being “willfully ignorant”. Or as we mere mortals call dumb on purpose.
While there are examples of polygamy, it is never advocated by God and even comes with a curse.
While you are on your vast Bible study, I’m sure you came across specific items that the Jews themselves were under that didn’t affect the gentiles. Remember when Jesus told Peter to “kill and eat”? Those restrictions were lifted as they were temporary for a specific purpose.
Oh look what i just did. I cast my pearls…….

“tarter and feathered”
Is that anything like “fish and chirps”?

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.
