Just one verse? Here’s two: Matthew 28:19-20. “ Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Guess Jesus must have thought it was pretty important to go and make disciples since it’s pretty much the last thing He said to His disciples before He ascended to heaven.

I’m an educator in Ohio. I teach 3rd grade students. Common Core is FAR more rigorous than what we currently have in Ohio. My issue is that there are only two companies that are creating the tests. Our state has signed on with PARCC. With a monopoly like that, there is no way to ensure quality products or competitive pricing. I will tell you that the difficulty of the released questions is much greater than current OAA testing. For example, a released 3rd grade Common Core question is: You have to build a fence around the perimeter of your property. The front of your property is 53 feet long. The sides of your property are 252 feet long, the back of you property is 50 feet long. Fence is sold in 3 lengths: 8′ sections, 10′ sections and 14′ sections. 8′ sections cost $50 each. 10′ sections cost $75 each and 14′ sections cost $100 each. What is the most economical way to build the fence? Prove how you know below.
I’ll let those of you that care to try that as adults to comment below.

This video is confirmation that there is an entire population and it’s culture that in no way could I understand or identify with in any way. I couldn’t imagine living that lifestyle or seeing and listening to that everyday of my life. I realize times are always changing but this is devolution at it’s finest. From the drug dealers to the women in the video and their kids. It’s most interesting that the “baby daddy” didn’t seem to be at all concerned that his kids were screaming you’re gay and his “baby mama” was being violent and cussing in front their “babies”. In fact, we only see him AFTER she got knocked out. Maybe if he were there diffusing the situation and being a father and husband this would have been avoided.
First of all, he's probably not even sure if he's the baby's daddy or which baby he's the daddy of....and secondly, he's most definitely not a husband. These 'creatures' open up for anybody - not picky evidently - and, evidently, the male isn't too picky either - both these ho's look pretty nasty, so I would the the male would have to be pretty desperate to even consider EITHER of them. This trash self perpetuates and continues the cycle of take, take, take! They're not even educated enough to GET a job working ANYWHERE! Would YOU hire any of them? Thought not! Typical Obama voters - not smart enough to do anything but breed!!!

Marriage is an institution that was created by God. This is the reason that the government should have NEVER gotten involved in a religious practice. Tax breaks are not worth the headache of being dictated to how my faith is to be practiced. Please remove all government incentives to marriage. Separate church and state here. Allow the government to recognize “legally” two people deciding to join financially together and therefore protecting them from each other when they inevitably decide to leave one another but PLEASE get out of my faith. Religion and MARRIAGE is a GOD instituted ceremony. If I were an atheist, I would NOT want to be married. I may want the benefit of taxes, a partner or companionship but why a marriage? Please separate church and state here. The state has no business in my church. Take away my tax breaks for tithing and donating, take away filing my taxes jointly for marriage, just get out of my religious freedom and take your atheists and the ACLU with you. I don’t get married for tax breaks, I don’t tithe to have a write off in April. I married my spouse because God has brought us together and we want the world to see the picture of Jesus and His bride in our life as a testimony for what God has done through Jesus Christ. I tithe to give a portion of all that God already owns back to Him out of obedience to Him. This makes me sick.
Do yuo think people of other faiths can get married or only Christians? Im assuming yuo believe that muslims and hindus worship false gods correct? So their "marriage" is not before God either....so in your eyes they should only be allowed to have a civil service but not call it marriage?
Doseofstupidity - Ever heard of getting married by the justice of the peace? You hatetheists are some of the dumbest people on the planet. As well as the biggest crybabies.
The state does not recognize marriage as a protected establishment of religion. Quite the contrary. the fact is that marriage is nothing more than a civil contract.
The fact that I can get marriage by simple signing a contract and having no ceremony other than a judge stating "your married" proved that the state see it as nothing to do with any religion.
And to correct you on another point, marriage predated the creation of the xian god and religion. Humans have been conducting such bonding ceremonies as part of human nature, not at the dictate of any god or gods.
What the atheists are fighting for is for the right to have more than a highly limited, and in some and this case undesirable, limited choices to be used.
For the most part, the xian responses here are so typical hate-filled and, more importantly, fear-filled.
And what do religious people do when they are filled with fear? All I have to do is quote one particular fear-filled and cowardly xian poster here:

I guess we are eventually going to have to round up all atheists and send them to the ‘camps’."
And the fundamentalist Muslim and Pastor Fred Phelps are so much more terrible than you why exactly?
Git-R-Done...when did i say that? i wasnt commenting on atheists being forcing churches to marry them. I agree that is silly when there are other options. i was merely commenting on the idioitic post above me that insinuates that only people who belive in the bible should marry. You people seriosuly lack reading comprehension and logic. Thankfully most of you idiot rednecks are far far away from me. I wish we had allowed you had seceded...

OK, I’ve watched both video’s 3-4 times each. I can’t see ANYTHING in the original SOHO video, no matter how much they slow it down. At least I can’t until the very end when it zooms into something red and streaky. Let me get this straight, something red and streaky is seen near the sun? Earth shattering.
People, we are alone in the universe. We are alone in creation. If you are looking for a higher purpose look to God. Stop looking for answers in space. Unbelievable. Literally.

Who cares. Apple was king, not any longer. The new Galaxy S3, HTC One X and most likely 10 other Android phones will be ahead in technology by the time this phone comes to the market. Don’t get me wrong, it will be built beautifully, people would buy it even if it smelled and looked like a turd just so they could get that little apple on the back of it.

What scripture are you looking at? Where in the Bible do you see that? I don’t see that anywhere.

“Faux War” sounds to me like she fired a shot expecting to be backed up by an army only to realize everyone had stepped back after she fired. She started the war with her words and now asks for a cease fire.
When you fire a shot, and he get badly outgunned and out positioned, don’t expect courtesy and a mulligan. You should expect to be blown away and made an example to everyone else that would ever think of firing such a stupid shot again.

I live in the Cincinnati area, only about an hour and a half from me. I am a youth pastor and a coach. Each year I have over 500 t-shirts made for various events and team functions. You’d better believe that I will be making a purchase from Hands on Originals now. Bookmark added.

[God chooses whom He will to bring Him glory. He chooses whom He will to reveal the truth to.]
Sounds like Obama or some progressive government program where winners and losers are picked. Certainly not something worthy of worship.”
Yeah, except God is the sovereign creator of all things. Holy, just, sinless and GOD. Other than that it sounds JUST like that.

@DEAVONREYE I say those purposefully hardened are without hope of salvation and will spend eternity in hell. It is God who chooses those for heaven and God who chooses those for hell. Humanity tries to place itself in the greatest position of importance in all things.
Humanity is ONLY placed in the highest priority when it comes to created things. Humanity is God’s greatest creation and therefore is the highest on earth Lording over all things here. God is higher than man. Just because we are the highest here, does not mean we are the highest in eternal things. For a man to go to hell and burn because God willed it, if it is in the mind of God to be so, then it will be so and without remorse or regret.
Yes, God created some for heaven and some for hell. When Christians come to terms with this, they will spend less time arguing with others and more time evangelizing.
Now you will say, why evangelize if God made some for heaven and some for hell and we have no say. I say I want to glorify my God in all things sharing the Gospel. It is not for their glory and edification, it is for my pleasure to bring God glory. It pleases God for me to proclaim his name, therefore I share the Gospel. Praise God that I am not responsible for souls that are lost. It is His will and His purpose that is being fulfilled, therefore it should be Him that makes that decision.
March 21, 2012 at 2:51pm
@DEAVONREYE I wholeheartedly agree with you. You can NOT choose God. Only God can choose you. Proof of the existence of God for me is as unnecessary as proof that air surrounds me. I experience it in my lungs every second of every day. Without it I would surely die. I will never see it, but I can see the effects of it keeping me healthy, on a cold day with crystallized portions of it becoming visible.
To try to explain this faith to you is like trying to explain what a sneeze feels like to a fish. Not only can a fish NOT sneeze it also does not have the ability to understand me even if it could. Your mind is closed, not of your will (regardless of how much you proclaim it to be). Your mind is closed because of God’s will for it to be. “So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.” (Romans 9:18 ESV) You have been hardened.
March 21, 2012 at 12:45pm
@DEAVONREYE It’s CINCY as in Cincinnati not CINDY. Second, no I don’t see a problem with predestination. It’s not Calvinism. John Calvin didn’t come up with it Paul did as he was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write it.
God is glorified with people going to hell as much as he is people going to heaven. If people do not go to hell then God is a liar. If God is a liar then he is not God. God is glorified when his truth revealed and fulfilled.
Christians that try to reason out the mind of God are the biggest issue. Assuming that you know why God said something or what he meant by something makes you a fool. Romans 8:29-30 tells me “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 3And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.”
People don’t like that, but that’s because people like to rebel against God. The whole notion of free will is a lie from the pits of hell and it is rebellious. God chooses.
March 21, 2012 at 11:31am
No DEAVONREYE, Satan’s blinding is NOT more powerful than the Holy Spirit. The Spirit chooses whom the Father chooses to reveal it to. Read Romans 8, 9 and most of the Bible.
From Jesus words “Many are called, but few are CHOSEN” (Matthew 22:14). God chooses whom He will to bring Him glory. He chooses whom He will to reveal the truth to.

Those are boys? They are not European? Wait, I thought soccer was only for people from Europe and girls. Who knew. Soccer, nobody cares.
It has nothing to do with with a police officer closing down a street for no apparent reason other than he was annoyed.

I wasn’t aware that calling someone by their name was disrespectful. I voted for and supported President Bush, but when I wrote about him in comment sections, or blogs, I often wrote Bush. Do you forget all of the names the opposition called him? Where was their civility? If being called “Obama” is the worst thing he has to worry about he’s doing fine. Unfortunately for him, he has bigger millstones around his neck that the nation can see for this election cycle.

The Bible tells me that he can pray all he wants, but God does not hear him. Unless you have repented of your sins and have claimed Jesus Christ as your savior your cries fall on deaf ears.
John 9:31 “We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him.: (ESV)
1 Peter 3:12 “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
Proverbs 1:26-29 speaks to everyone who does not believe in Him and gives a warning for those who don’t that “…when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD.”

I’ve said for YEARS that at 60 when you renew your license you should have to do a driving test and a REAL vision test from a qualified doctor to continue driving. Your renewal should be every 2 years through 70. At 70 you should have to have a complete physical signed off by a doctor and vision test signed off by a optometrist/ophthalmologist and YEARLY renewal of driving privileges thorough death. This, however will NEVER happen due to AARP and other lobbyists.
As to the gentleman above that said he is a truck driver and his license costs 3x’s the amount of ours (non-commercial drivers) I think the fee should be dramatically dropped or even waived if you pass. This is not about making money, it’s about saving lives.
It would seem this woman must have been intoxicated as to not realize she was going the wrong way. No amount health screening will prevent bad behavior.
I would like to see stats on wrong way drivers and age.By your writing I think you might be surprised.
Elderley drivers should surely be tested every couple years,and a statement from their doctor would be wise.But I think all ages should have a statement from their doctor as to what meds they are on and are they mentaly competent to drive.
Do not give this authority to some bureaucrat to decide who gets to drive.
I'm over 60 and I can drive and work most kids under. Is 60 a magic number when faculties start to go? Do you really want more TSA like agents deciding when you are too old to drive?
By the way has anyone seen an autopsy report? Was the wrong way driver drunk? Or stoned? Or on drugs?
Before asking for MORE laws that limit our freedom let''s find out.

I say 100% YES for sure gay people should be able to refuse services AND business owners should be able to refuse services to whom they choose. The governor should find another hair stylist. There are many more options out there for her to choose from. This isn’t the civil rights regardless of how the left tries to frame it.
