We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
(1 Timothy 1:8-11 (NIV))

If you put this argument forward, then you have to accept the counter argument as valid as well since the very nature of God requires faith. In other words, just because you believe that there isn’t something greater than ourselves, this does not mean that something greater than ourselves does not exist.

[ The Fulfillment of the Law ] “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
Jesus did not come to do away with the laws. God knew that we were not capable of fulfilling them on our own. At no point are we told to ignore the laws. We simply cannot comply with them.

My son’s graduating class not only had a young lady with Downs Syndrome on the homecoming court, they overwhelmingly voted her as homecoming queen! I thought that this was fantastic especially since my son has Aspergers and they have never treated him as different.

Place him in a cell with a few four legged porkers and then feed him SPAM.
If it is excavated and proves to the Palestinians that the Biblical account of who owns the land is true . . .
Plus, since it is on land currently owned by a Palestinian, I believe that they don’t want to push the isssue since they may be afraid of what may happen to the find as caused by the current owner.

Democrats bitterly denounced the legislation as a Jim Crow-era tactic to suppress the votes of the elderly, minorities, and the underprivileged.
McDonnell signed the legislation “with the recognition that almost all citizens already have acceptable forms of photo ID that would allow them to vote and a majority of voters support this policy,” he said in a statement.
The legislation provides for a free valid ID with the bearer’s photo to any registered voter who lacks one.
How does this suppress votes? If they don’t have an ID, the state will pay for them to get one.
I agree with you. If you cannot figure out HOW to get an I.D. you probably shouldn't be voting in the first place. I'll bet if you required an I.D. to get food stamps (do they?) and other free crap, every single one of them would have an I.D. by 5:00 today.

SCIENCEISNOTEVIL – Where is the threat of terror? BTW, I agree that science is not evil. It is merely observations of the natural world. Both science and Christianity require faith. It is a matter of where you want to place your faith, and it is a matter of balance. Science, since it is man’s observations, is not perfect. Unfortunately, we do not have the pleasure of going back in time to see what really happened with creation or with Jesus. We do have written accounts of Jesus, but we do not have written accounts to validate today’s scientific thinking. We can postulate, but first hand accounts do not exist. In essence, scientific knowledge is theory. Some of it can be proven to be reliable and some will never be able to be proven without a time machine. People have the ability to choose what they wish to believe. Just like TV or radio, if you don’t like it, ignore it. Don’t throw a fit to have something removed because you don’t agree with it. As of today, we still do have our First Amendment rights. I don’t like what this group paid to put up, but I will vehemently protect their right to do it as long as there are no vulgarities, insults, injuries or death that result from it. Common decency should prevail.
But, we dont have any written accounts of jesus, no contemporary ones.

It has been said that there is more evidence that Jesus existed than there is for your existence.

Can we shut down Columbia? That is a big part of the problem.

MODERATIONISBEST – let’s not forget the Capital building being used as a church right after it was built. How is that for separation of church and state, which, by the way, is NOT part of the Constitution.

I don’t care if someone is black, white, yellow, red, or even green. Truth is truth and I am happy to see it getting out. We are all united through Jesus. It is satan who is trying to divide us.

The complaint also notes that the display “lacks any secular purpose,” – So, let me get this straight. Telling someone not to kill has not secular purpose. Telling someone not to steal has no secular purpose. Telling someone to not commit adultery has no secular purpose. Telling someone not to lie has no secular purpose. Telling someone not to covet – to be envious and greedy – has no secular purpose.
Even if you ignore the ones that talk about God, these are foundations upon which all people should live. How can someone say that they have no secular purpose?
If you tell people not to do the things there are laws against then you are infringing on their right to find out on their own about the consequences, well the consequences on this side of the grave anyway.
Why would anyone want to display something so antithetical to the constitution as the ten commandments? Simply compare the first amendment with the first commandment to see how unpatriotic it is to post such filth in a public school.
Antitheist, wait until The Great Spirit gets his hands on you and turns you over to the Wendigo. It won't go well for you, but naturally, you'll challenge me to prove these things. Wait and see.
lol actually youre very confused, there is no crime called "killing".
Youre getting the bible and reality mixed up. Its a religious symbol, common law was in place before christianity-thats why christianity never talks about INTENT, but common law and all our body of law DOES. they have nothing in common
Whats the difference between 2nd degree murder and manslaughter?
INTENT Christianity STILL doesnt even know about intent, centuries after everyone else lol

A good example of this was a decorated ex-marine saying something to the effect that a revolution was coming on his facebook page. They had him locked up and tried to have him committed to a mental facility. He didn’t say anything. This lady. on the other hand, said that she would kill Romney if she saw him.
What is wrong with this picture?

He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
According to the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary:
Word 1299 cast forth – baraq
Word 1300 lightning – baraq
Word 1116 high place, elevation – bam-maw
Word 7200 to see –ra’ah or raaw-aw’
This gives us: Baraq “U” Bam-Maw Lightning from the heights
Satan in Hebrew is “Satan”
He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Rough translation – ra’ah Satan Baraq “U” Bam-Maw

TERMYT, I agree. Jesus taught about individual salvation, not group salvation. He taught about individual sin, not group sin. He taught about individual responsibility, not group responsibility. All that you have to do is read Luke 10:30-37. It was all focused at the individual. Each individual person responded to the situation in their own way. Jesus asked the disciples who acted as they should. Upon hearing their response, he told them to “go and do likewise.” It is a matter of following Jesus. Both parties have issues, but it seems that one has more by ignoring sin issues such as LGBT.

Glass has different melting points depending on what the composition of the glass actually is. Standard soda lime glass (the most common kind of glass) melts at something on the order of 1500 °C, or about 2700 °F, while top drawer silicon oxide has a glass melting point of in excess of 2300 °C, or some 4200 °F.
Why do you listen to someone who says that they want to destroy you and then not believe them? Were you ever beat up on the school playground? Did a bully ever tell you that he was going to beat you up after school? What happened?
Did they beat any common sense out of you? Do you not think that people are capable of violence?
