    @Nevermind

    Eminent domain is never liked by all but atleast there is a reason behind it in this case. Energy security is WAY more significant than saving a turtle that isn’t being hurt by the cows anyway.

    I’m truly not trying to be a jerk but there is SO MUCH false information flying around lately it’s starting to get ridiculous. Sure, PCUSA isn’t perfect but it’s far from the “false Christian denomination” people make it out to be. I actually came from an Assemblies Of God church and they had a whole other set of issues that were different than PCUSA issues but no less important. True AOG members are no less Christan than true PCUSA members, but are also no MORE Christian either.

    @LoveGod

    I have no clue where people are getting all this false information. Here is a correct “rewrite” of your post.

    1. The whole thing about female pastors is the only true statement in your post.

    2. PCUSA believes in creationism just as much as any other Christian denomination. The only evolutionary aspect that true PCUSA members would even support is that of micro-evolution. Yes, evolution can happen over time based on mutations and such but we STILL believe that God created life.

    3. PCUSA does not support divorce or sexual immorality. Yes, if a spouse is getting abused then PCUSA understands that divorce is necessary. However, many of the PCUSA pastors won’t even officiate a marriage until the couple goes through extensive church based marriage counseling (provided free by the pastor). Sex outside of marriage is frowned upon and is no way supported by the church.

    4. PCUSA does not support gay relationships. The church welcomes gay people into the church because shunning them serves no purpose other than driving them away from God. Who knows what their future holds but it can only help if they are closer to God. There are a LOT of gay people who actually want to be closer to God but most churches will only concentrate on them being gay and not them wanting to be closer to God in general. Being gay isn’t their central identity as a person wanting be a Christian. We all fall at one time or another and EVERYBODY needs to be helped along the way.

    The majority from southern Missouri can tell you that this would be more than symbolic. Sure, it probably isn’t technically legal to override federal law in this case but we really don’t care. For many down here it’s more about what is right and not necessarily what is legal. We would have it no other way.

    Washington had absolutely no chance of dying in battle because he was a complete bada**!

    I have actually had conversations with Christians that have different views of what Hell is. Some view it has a place of nothingness where you can’t enjoy the grace of God and some view it as an actual place of eternal torment. Heaven and seeing Christ as a deity seems like those base beliefs that should transcend all Christian denominations.

  • March 6, 2014 at 4:37pm

    That’s what makes this so bizarre. This should be one of those common undisputed facts among ALL Christians no matter what denomination they belong to.

  • March 6, 2014 at 4:26pm

    Regardless of what the words were changed to the Presbyterian church believes Jesus died for our sins. We understand that God has wrath but still still loves us. Yes, it is one of those talking points between denominations but for better or worse we don’t talk about wrath as much even though we still know it’s there.

  • March 6, 2014 at 3:56pm

    “Specifically, the church expressed concern that many Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) leaders do not believe in the deity of Jesus, nor do they embrace salvation through Christ.”

    I have been a member of the Presbyterian USA church for years and I have NEVER talked to or even heard of a Presbyterian that believed this. We send church members to the national conferences and still no proof that this is an issue. Sure, there might be a handful of rouge churches that need to be kicked out but this would be an extremely rare occurrence. I realize that Presbyterian stances on issues like gays and Israel are not popular among many Christians but people need to realize that this is more to do with the redemption of the sinner and not the sin itself. Even then, Presbyterians don’t destroy each other because of these issues. We do have very thoughtful talks about these two issues alone but in no way is it to defy God or the teachings of the Bible. I have seen articles like this before and it’s nothing new. However, the whole part about Presbyterians not seeing Jesus as a deity and not recognizing salvation through Christ is laughable.

    “that promote fun and “de-emphasize winning”

    Which ironicly is why Canada uses our military for protection and dumps all their money into social programs.

    Those who are saying that this kid should not play football is missing a VERY important aspect of the situation. The kid has spent his entire life using his feet like his hands. He has had to learn all the fine motor control for feet that is usually learned for the hands. This kid could possibly be one of the most accurate kickers in football if he keeps working on his kicking game. His handicap could genuinely become a benefit when it comes to a football career.

    @Eastinfection

    Just because we think we understand the limits of physics does not prove that we actually do. I have this conversation with atheists all the time. Science forces us to observe and make sense with the world around us. Saying that we KNOW the limits of what is out there (by saying there is no God or that demons don’t exist) is pretty much going against the whole idea of science. That is why even though I am a Christian I get along with agnostics because they atleast admit that there is no way of knowing the limits of how the universe works. So yes, people should not be able to walk up walls but who am I to say that there is not something that is not within our human realm of true understanding.

    Not to say that it’s necessarily true but there are a LOT of people involved with this case that have respected positions and are all saying that something is very wrong. You have to keep an open mind and not automatically discount this as a scam. Sure, it could be a scam but given the evidence this should be looked into further before making any decisions on the validity of all this.

  • January 30, 2014 at 1:55pm

    I am still somewhat skeptical of these accounts. However, I find it interesting that so many people in respected positions are all saying that something is wrong with this house. I also find it interesting that the Catholic church authorized the exorcism which is pretty hard to get them to authorize and usually requires a lot of evidence. People need to keep an open mind about this and not automatically pass this off as a scam.

    I know it’s been mentioned already but the picture of the people taking pictures with their iphones is pretty disturbing and creepy. It’s a VERY powerful picture that pretty much explains our separation from God.

    I had the pleasure to know Barry Hinson when he coached at Missouri State. He was a family friend of ours and the guy never swore, never drank, and was a very religious guy. The guy was very generous also. I remember one year he came to our family barbecue (we have a big family) and Barry rolls up with a cooler full of raw meat and decides to barbecue for all of us. The guy didn’t ask for anything in return but he just wanted to be a nice guy. He is also VERY defensive of his family. I remember an incident when him and his wife decided to go out for a nice dinner with some of the family. While waiting outside the restaurant a man ran into his wife (knocking her over) and just kept walking without saying a word. Needless to say, he wasn’t too happy with his wife being knocked over and not getting an apology. Even though Mr. Hinson is a tiny person he decides tackle the man and and tell him to NEVER do what he did to any lady and not apologize for it.

    Bottom line is that he really is a nice and caring guy but we all have our moments. He was always passionate about the game of basketball and his players failing was seen by him as a personal failure as a coach. He has an edge but ultimatly he is always trying to get his player to play better.

    Atleast we know he didn’t try to strangle her.

    @Exrepublisheep

    So if 51% voted to legalize rape that would be fine? We have checks and balances alongside the constitution for a reason.

    @JefferyLebowski

    You actually answered your own question. The problem with people like yourself is that they have this skewed idea that death is the end of a person’s soul. If God let’s a person die then why can’t that same God let that person’s soul live in Heaven? Would a person’s life be more enjoyable on earth than it is in Heaven? If a person’s death helps others in their mortal life than is the temporary pain and suffering that significant when compared to an eternity in Heaven? I’m not even approaching this from a theological perspective. This is a logical view that for some reason is lost on people against Christianity or frankly any God based religion. I’m a devout Christian but sometimes I have to explain things in other terms to explain why the other side is outright wrong.

    It’s more likely to happen than a nuclear attack. It’s easier to build EMP weapons without international intervention due to the fact that you rdon’t need to enrich massive amounts of uranium. It’s pretty much built like a conventional weapon and can be wholly assembled in a standard factory. The worst part is that we have SO MANY people that could not take care of themselves with no electricity. No useful skills or welfare checks would mean no food or shelter. Granted, we would eventually recover but not without millions dying. Unfortunitly, a scenario like this is probably going to be the only thing that can wake the American people up and realize how far we have drifted from what our founders intended in founding a limited government.
