No, this is how we react when someone is murdered and the suspect is barricaded in his house.
The armored vehicle was used to help evacuate the other side of the house as it was a duplex. It was also used to rescue the elderly man involved in the domestic dispute and the other neighbors who lived in the neighborhood.

I don’t know if there was enough fuel, but I would not be surprised if this plane headed straight for Iran.
We would have spotted the plane entering Iranian air space like a St. Bernard inside a one room New York City apartment. Woof! Try a much more remote location, such as the middle of the Golden Triangle. I hope that opens your eyes.
If the airplane were fully fueled it has the capability to fly 7,725 nautical miles.

If you don’t believe that demons exist then you certainly don’t believe Jesus. Jesus Himself cast out demons and gave His authority to cast out demons to His disciples. So, if you don’t believe that demons exist, you are calling Jesus a liar. That’s exactly how Satan wins battles here on Earth, by convincing people that he does not exist, therefore making Jesus look like the liar. The truth is that the battle has already been won. Jesus has already claimed His victory and all of Satan’s attempts at defeating Jesus and His followers are futile. Not one of Jesus’ followers will ever be claimed by the evil one.
And yet [if what you're saying IS true] . . . the scoreboard is GREATLY swayed to the side of Satan. If "number of souls" is the goal, . . . Satan wins. Any "victory", in this case, would have to be a hollow one.
As for "Satan convinces people that he doesn't exist", see my post on the first page to TwinFireSwords. Satan behaves exactly like all the other supernatural entities act. Just like none of them actually exist. For more, go to that post and following replies.

While I welcome stories that point out the extreme language in customer agreements, the bottom line is that, having this knowledge, customers should then exercise their right to cancel their credit card and let them know why: NO, you do not have a right to come to my home! NO, you do not have the right to call me using blocked or misleading caller IDs! I will take my credit card business elsewhere.
It is not a violation of privacy if you continue doing business with them after they change the terms of the customer agreement.

Being a resident of Hell, Michigan, I can vouch for the fact that there is not much to see when you come to visit (A biker bar, a tacky gift shop, and a store/diner/ice cream shop/post office that’s still trying to figure out what it needs to be to stay in business). But, if you live on the lake as we do, it is simply beautiful all year round (even when Hell freezes over). Having moved from the progressive Hell-hole known as Massachusetts, I can tell you that we are light years ahead when it comes to Christ and the Bible. And NO! This is NOT Detroit. Detroit is it’s own version of Hell.

I happen to live in Hell, Michigan and I can tell you that we would rank quite a bit higher than Detroit and light years ahead of the place we moved from, which is about half way between Boston and Providence. I don’t care much for the marketing of Hell as a tourist destination. There are only 3 tiny businesses here that are scraping by to survive. I’d rather they focus on being a useful part of the community as in providing services for the residents rather than tacky souvenirs to tourists.

Let me know when they make golfballs with this built in.
Hmm. Business opportunity. Good idea. As long as they are water proof, they are good for me.
They already have these golf balls. Check below :)

They just about guaranteed that they will be the target of armed robbery because the crooks now know it’s a gun-free establishment where the manager has pi$$ed off the cops. Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters???

“Being a political force” is not the primary mission of the evangelical. In fact, it is not even on the radar screen. Spreading the good news of the gospel to every corner of the Earth is the primary mission. We are to be the representations of Christ here on Earth, showing His compassion, bringing His healing power, feeding the hungry in His name, comforting the afflicted in His name, and casting out demons in His name. (That last one will upset many but it is one the Jesus instructed and is rarely practiced.)
We evangelicals can do none of these things if left to our own devices. We are powerless. But we do these things through Jesus as He leads us and empowers us. Evangelical churches that strive to teach the bible and show the love of Christ in all the ways described above, are growing, thriving churches.
Churches that try to sugarcoat the bible, or gloss over the facts, to be politically correct are losing their congregations rapidly. With fewer in the congregation, it is impossible to carry out any of the other missions of the Christian church.
So teaching the bible as written is the first key. Putting the bible into practice in the community is the first mission of those who filled with the Holy Spirit. It is not our mission to enforce the law, that is written on our hearts, among those who are still lost. Rather it is our mission to help the lost find their way so that His law will be written on their hearts as well.
So true of the genuine, born again Evangelical Christians. The rest - in it for power and money but there are always those who are on the wrong path.
It is good to know that God is not of men and cannot be voted out of my life by others.
When I am on Gods side, He is on my side, so what can man do to me?
Who are they going to call on?
By the power of God Christians turn the world upside down. The true Christian is not of this world, just in it.
Being a friend of this world is hostility towards God.
As Jesus says, the disciple is not greater than his Master, if the world hates Me, they will certainly hate My own.
2-3.The kings of this earth take their places, the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One ( the Messiah, the Christ).
They say, "let us break Their bands asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us".
10-12. Now therefore kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear. Rejoice and and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry with you and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled.
Oh blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

I think this is what Jesus meant when He said to turn the other cheek. It must have felt like a cold slap in the face to Officer DePrimo to read about this beggar’s comments. In order for him to be charitable again, he will have to turn the other cheek and do so in the same spirit of love, while expecting nothing more than the same result. It’s not fair. But it’s what compassion is all about.
Jesus got angry on occasion. It's called righteous indignation. Turning the other cheek is not always the answer. Now, none of us are Lord and Savior (note to Jamie Foxx), but sometimes righteous indignation is exactly what's called for!
Matthew 17:17 reads, “Faithless and perverse generation! How much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you?”
John 2:15, 16: “Making a whip out of cord, he drove them all out of the Temple, sheep and cattle as well, scattered the money changers’ coins, knocked their tables over and said to the dove sellers, ‘Take all this out of here and stop using my Father’s house as a market.”
Mark 3:1: “Then he looked angrily round at them, grieved to find them so obstinate, and said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’”

It is time to end the monopoly of government-run Communist indoctrination centers otherwise known as public schools. The system should be replaced with equalized funding of a voucher system where vouchers can be used at any type of school, regardless of its affiliation, as long as the basics of reading, writing, math and science are taught proficiently. That would be better that what we are getting out of ghetto schools now.

I don’t think he’ll be pointing his weapon at anyone in public for quite a while. But is is a shame that the dog didn’t get a chance to play with his chew toy.
ROTFLMAO. Do you provide tissues to so I can clean my monitor...herbal tea. Thanks for the great laugh!
Well written, only a few words said it all, and covered the entire incident completely.

Confirmation is by definition an affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ as well as the doctrines of the Catholic Church. It is a choice that is made freely by individuals having reached the level of maturity at which they can fully understand what it is they are affirming. If he is not in agreement with the teachings of the church, he should not be confirmed. It’s as simple as that.
I am absolutely opposed to the sacrament of Confirmation being bestowed upon people just because they reach a certain age. They must choose Confirmation or it is nothing but a useless ritual. And the church has every right to refuse the sacraments to any individual who professes beliefs contrary to church doctrine.
Now I want to see them refusing Communion to Joe Biden and other liberal Catholic politicians.

Sounds like IBEW tactics to me. If you thought the Teamsters were brutal, you’ve never crossed the IBEW.

The way this country is divided, they could get 50 million signatures and Macy’s knows that there are another 49 million who will shop there. You win some, you lose some.

I will vote for Jesus on Election day. I will vote for the principles contained in the Word of God. I will vote for Mitt Romney because he more closely reflects those values and because there is a false messiah occupying the office now. Jesus is not on the ballot and we are not electing a messiah.
If you want to FOR Jesus, vote AGAINST Obama. Vote for Mitt Romney!

If Proposal 2 passes, it is the end of the road for Michigan’s economy. No business would EVER relocate to a State where collective bargaining rights are in the State’s Constitution and taxes will be outrageously high for the people that remain here. They may as well call it the economic suicide proposal.
