    Brandishing a firearm IS a crime. Wave a gun at or near police, and you put yourself in imminent danger. Your choice. Oh, and the past tense of “see” is “saw,” not “seen.” Grammar: read about it sometime.

    Except his employer, Fox News, disagrees with you. Hence the reprimand. Did you even read the article?

    In other words, logic is not on your side so you have resorted to name calling. Got it.

    And I’m sure some helpful liberal would be happy to explain that by asking for consistency, you are a racist, sexist, homophobic, science-denier. :)

    Well said.

    So…if she’s too sick to continue the campaign, can we give Trump back to the Dems and run a real conservative in the GOP? ;)

    So my first response was blocked, and I’m trying again. Hopefully it doesn’t show up twice. :)

    My concern over IKW’s post is more about the connotations of the words “social organization” and “big brother” than their denotations. There is a movement in the Church to expect the church, Jesus, and Christianity to serve the believer . (This is closely tied to the movement to “modernize” the church to allow people to keep their pet sins.) This attitude is in complete opposition to Scripture. Now if by “big brother” you mean that Jesus is the Son of God and believers are also children of God, I’ll happily agree. But the modern meaning of “big brother” is more like a buddy…someone who might shake his head at you once in a while but isn’t going to hold you accountable. That is not the Christ of the Bible. He is Lord and He asks ALL from us. Even our own families aren’t to take precedence over Him (Matthew 10:37). Christianity is not self-help groups, clean rock concerts, and catchy slogans. It is an all-encompassing life change that is demonstrated by obedience to the Word of God. Without comparing our own opinions and preferences to the Bible, everyone “does what is right in his own eyes.” That didn’t end well in Judges and it’s still wrong today.

    “Listens” – The point I was trying to make is as much about the connotations of the words “social organization” and “big brother” as their denotations. There is a portion of the Church that has fallen for the lie that the church, Jesus, and the Christian faith exist to entertain and/or serve the believer. (This line of thinking is closely tied to the movement to “modernize” the church by approving of people’s pet sins…homosexuality, sex outside marriage, abortion, etc.) In the context of Scripture, the message is the exact opposite. If by “big brother” you mean that Jesus is the Son of God and we who trust him for salvation are also children of God, then I will happily agree with you. But in our society the connotation of that word is someone who is a “buddy” rather than a Lord. IKW’s statement that Jesus did not come to place claims on us is demonstrably false. He asks ALL from us. Even our own families aren’t to take precedence over Him (Matthew 10:37). Our own opinions and practices have to be checked against the Bible, otherwise it’s all “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” That didn’t end well in the book of Judges, and it’s currently destroying the Church from within.

    Praying for you, Chris! You seem very angry.

    Friend, I have to respond to this. You’re correct that Christianity is not connected to social organizations/traditions, but Jesus is not your “big brother.” He is a holy God that can have no communion with sin. Picking two verses out of the Bible and claiming that you understand everything about Christ from that is wrong. Yes, believers should show God’s love and mercy. However, we don’t show love and mercy by pretending that it’s okay for people to live in their sin. The Bible clearly states that those who do not repent (turn away from) sin and put their faith in Christ as Savior will spend eternity in a place of torment. There is no love in subjecting people to that fate by telling them that their favorite sin is okay. Hebrews 10:24-25, as well as most of the epistles, addresses the need for believers to regularly fellowship with one another in the church setting, but that’s not the real issue here. Jesus is no wishy-washy “just be nice and you’ll all be fine” god. I hope you understand that, for your own sake. There is nothing special about me. I’m a sinner who happens to be saved by the grace of God alone. I hope you know Him for real!

    Thank you for illustrating my point.

    Nope, totally disagree. Sending your 5 year old on an international flight unaccompanied is not okay.

    I also think that two adults can find a solution to the “fly your preschoolers across the country alone” visitation problem. It does, however, require putting the needs of the kids first.

  • [26] September 2, 2016 at 5:22pm

    Very well said and an important message! Our society is sick and this is one of the key poisons.

    On another note, there are a lot of men (and probably women) going to get very angry that you’re pointing out their own pet habit. It’s evident already from the comments. Truth hurts.

    The reason you feel so defensive is because you know deep down it’s wrong.

    So you sent your 5 year old on an international flight alone and you think the problem is the airport? SMH.

    Just a poor word choice. I wouldn’t dwell on it too much. Just meant that if they’ll do it to an authority figure who is carrying a gun, what will they do to the average Joe on the street?

    She had a warrant out for her arrest. Stop trying to turn her into a victim. Quote the Founding Fathers all you want, but they’d have tased her too.

    Only those with no knowledge of a subject resort to insults in the hope of making a point.

  • [7] August 30, 2016 at 4:22pm

    DS – Saint has only insults, no actual facts or logic to make his point. Sure sign of not knowing what one is talking about.
