    Duh! Obviously the answer is Sharknado!

    What an ignorant statement. Man is the sinful being, and the Bible clearly states that the “wages of sin is death, and that all have fallen short of the Glory of God”.

    The reality is that we all deserve to die when compared to who God is, but He is gracious to us and allows the opportunity to come to know Him, and be redeemed by the Blood of Jesus which washes away all sin.

    Every baby that is murdered in-utero never gets that chance, and regardless of how they were brought into the world, even by rape or incest, they deserve that chance.

    OK so before we get too excited, do we know if state law trumps local ordinances? Here in Ohio all city specific laws were nullified by the State’s CHL law. I hope this is the case because the defenseless throngs in Chicago may still be under local law and be unable to carry legally.

    Also in Ohio’s case the first passage was the starting point, the law is always improving(in our favor). So at least that’s something for those living in IL.

    So we just ignore that pesky New Testament?

    Psalms says that the SUM of the Word is Truth.

    I Timothy 3:1-7 (NASB) Qualifications for an overseer:

    It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of [a]overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. 2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine [c]or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. 4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity 5 (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), 6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation [d]incurred by the devil. 7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

    I know how we can save billions of dollars more. Shut down the postal service FedEx, UPS, and many other PRIVATE companies do it better and cheaper.

    While we’re at it we could lose about 90% of all other government agencies too.

    1. NASA – SpaceX and similar private companies do it faster and cheaper.
    2. National Endowment for the Arts – Why does the government need to be involved with art? Is there a shortage of artists?
    3.Department of Education – return the the running of schools back to the parents where it should have been all along.

    And this this is just the start….

    Every parent needs to get their kids out of the public school now!!! Don’t demand a change the curriculum… get your children OUT NOW, before it is too late. This is not the same school system you went to. The public education system is the strongest arm of liberal indoctrination, and it does not end after high school, the methods are ramped up in college.

    Do whatever it takes, home school, or private school. Your children are not being educated they are being brainwashed and robbed of critical thinking skills.

    My children are not now and will NEVER BE, in any government run school. I pay a whole lot in tuition, but it is worth it.

    Self-righteousness? No. I can say that I always tip well because I do. When you eat at a sit-down restaurant, you are expected to tip. The Federal minimum hourly wage for servers is $2.13. Tipping is paying for food service. Not tipping, when deserved, is stealing!! Not only that but the automatic gratuity policy was laid out on the menu. If the the gratuity was not automatically added and the service was poor then I could see not paying any tip. Since it was the policy that the tip was automatic it is required. So not paying it, is theft, which is sin. He compounded his sin by using God as an excuse for not paying it. The sad fact is that in many surveys of restaurant workers the “after-church” crowd are the rudest customers and worst tippers. What kind of testimony is that, being rude and stingy?

    Tipping is not arbitrary Tipping guidelines are well established. Tipping percentages have nothing to do with tithing either, we tithe on income not services rendered.

    The fact is we all sin and have fallen short of the Glory of God, but we as Christians must be very careful of the image we display to those out in the world. If we live our lives no different that the rest of them what gain is it for them to pursue Christ?

  • January 30, 2013 at 2:14pm

    If this story is true, and as a Christian, I denounce this behavior. This is reprehensible and why Christians get a bad name. As was mentioned in an earlier post about how God loves a “cheerful” giver I agree. In addition since most restaurant servers make the bulk of their wages from tips, I would say this is theft in the name of God unless the service was really bad, and if it was that bad he should have gotten the manager involved.

    It is because of people like this that restaurants have to add an automatic gratuity. Also it is people like this who identify themselves as belonging to Christ that give us who truly believe and understand our Bible a bad name.

    I always tip generously, and never ever act rudely to servers. These people are just trying to make a living and they have bad days to.

    So according to HuffPo only black men are criminals. I guess when you are a lib it’s ok to be a little racist.

  • July 7, 2012 at 6:17am

    My Bible’s gospel is one of good news, not one of hate. No where in the Word does it say to tell sinners that God hates them. It says go and make disciples. They are perverting God’s message and they will be judged harshly for it.

    @NJBARFLY Morality is not based on the Bible. Because God exists, He is who He is, and because He created the universe, the Law of Morality exists. The Bible merely lays out the Law of Morality.

    Just like the Law of Gravity, it existed long before it was ever explained.

    Again I ask, is all life merely and accident? If it is, then we do not have to worry about our individual purpose or the purpose of others’. I am free to do anything I want if it suits me. I can kill, rape, steal, etc.

    So how do varying levels of empathy factor into it? Serial killers have little empathy towards their victims. Empathy toward others is a subjective thing. Morality has to be based on something that is objective and well defined.

    Look at the natural world. The law of gravity is a law of the universe and does not change. It is objective and permanently defined. We can use a plumb-line to see if the wall of a building is straight, because gravity will pull the weight straight down. We have to measure morality with a constant measure.

    Again I say if all life is a “cosmic accident” then no life has purpose of value.

  • June 18, 2012 at 7:54pm

    Atheism is the denial that there is a God or a creator. If there is no creator, then evolution is true. If evolution is true, then our existence is nothing more than a “cosmic accident”. If that is true then there is no basis for morality. If there is no basis for morality then killing, raping, stealing, lying, and hurting others in any way is not a problem. I do not owe anything to anybody.

    So if you ask an atheist who sets moral and acceptable behavior, they would say society. If society is the measure of moral behavior, then Hitler was well within his rights to do what he did. Ahmadinejad’s society condones his action so is he in the right? According to an “true” atheist, he is.

    Those who deny God do not reduce his existence or role in the universe. God will introduce himself to anyone who wants to meet him.

    If only more Pastors would actually read and teach the Bible…

    Psalm 33:12a
    Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…

    Seem pretty clear to me that being founded on Judeo-Christian Principles led to a lot of blessing for this nation. As we, as a nation stray, we are seeing the blessings begin to dry up.

    There is no doubt that illegal activity is being conducted in the production of moonshine. Is it actually happening on the show, who knows? However laws do not prevent people from committing crimes. Consider that there are over 20,000 federal state and local gun laws. Does gun crimes till occur? Yes!!

    When are people going to stop being so stupid to believe that the government has any power to prevent crime. They can only prosecute it.

    As a hockey player and an amateur ref for many years, there is no way I would ever play or ref without a visor of face mask, at any level!! Pro hockey players especially are stupid for not protecting their own livelihood, and amateur players have no excuse either.

    Hockey is a beautiful sport, but it is probably one of the most dangerous. Your playing with sticks and a rock, everything your mother warned you about.

    To be fair it took me getting a stick in the eye before I put one on.

    This is certainly an ethical dilemma, but one way to renounce your citizenship is to swear an oath to a foreign military. So do we consider Al-Queda a foreign military? It is not a country per se, but I think a case could be made.

    It is a slippery slope.

    So now flight attendants can’t tell the difference between Jews and Muslims. I have never traveled abroad and yet I am familiar with this Hebrew prayer ritual, and I am not Jewish!!

    If our general public was at all educated (I blame the public school system) then we could all better deal with what is happening.
