    I often attend a particular church as well, but am not an official member. Though I doubt Trumps remark that his favorite book is the Bible, not “belonging” to a church doesn’t mean one doesn’t have faith.

    And crime is everywhere. We need to hear about the big stories (black homosexual video murderer) nationally, but not every thug or police murder. It feeds the weapons ban agenda.

    I don’t wish to seem hard hearted, but this really don’t need to be reported outside of local news. It just feeds the impression of overflowing violence throughout the country. Certainly things have been going on like this since year 1.

    Deip – as I stated, it was Jones’ take on the Bible verse which he interpreted according to his era and experiences. But the sermon you provided wasn’t racist at all. Regarding your desegregation in 2000 question, I wouldn’t know why but would suspect that as his experiences and the culture changed so did his understanding. Life would be pretty stagnant if everything we believe at one age, hasn’t changed 50 years later.

    Deip – I read the sermon you provided in the link. First, I want to note that it is what Bob Jones said about segregation, not the Bible. I also read the chapter he references, about St. Paul in Athens and it too was not about segregation. In fact, when reading Jones’ sermon I was struck by how open he was toward all people. I didn’t expect that. I don’t think it is a big deal that he thought Africans should be in Africa, Chinese in China. He was acknowledging cultural differences, a way of seeing things, which also pertains to how you see things according to your era, as Jones does. In fact, cultural integrity (versus diversity) is a strength even today. All in all, you’ve given me an example of somebody who interprets a Bible passage through the lens of his time in history and experiences, but not actual biblical references to segregation. King Solomon, by the way, had a son with the Queen of Sheba who SOME traditions state was an Ethiopian (others Yemenese), and the idea of a Ethiopian with a Jew (whether true or not) has not been a problem.

    Justwow – I have no idea about Trumps status in God’s eyes. Thankfully, Christianity also has repentance.

    Trump/Cruz would be a spectacular ticket. Trump for his ability to get things done, Cruz for his knowledge of the Constitution and overall Mensa level. And it would give Cruz the chops for 2020 or 2024.

    Tattoos, shellfish, shaving – all of those are relevant for the Jewish people only. Christians are not obligated to follow those things (Acts 15). Christians are required, however, to abstain from sexual immorality (again, Acts 15). Also, there are exceptions in the Bible to allow divorce and a baker would have no idea whether somebody were following those exceptions or not. However, it would be clearly evident if a same sex couple came in requesting a wedding cake.

    Islam is hated because it oppresses women and dissenters, refuses to live by western standards and has declared jihad on non-Muslims, euro-american in particular. As for common sense, that is exactly how a man-made religion would look…you do thus and you’ll get this, unlike Christianity which is God reaching out and saving you, having done the work for you.

    LOL. Excellent

    Theatrical term? Tell it to Ted Danson

    Yes, I agree 100%. But we have to presents the Gospel without date setting. Date setting makes us look foolish and discredits the Faith.

    I really am uncomfortable when religious people, which I am myself, proclaim God’s judgment for such and such. Sometimes God’s judgment takes a VERY long time and we don’t see it, or it may very well simply be allowing our own filth building up around us and making our lives hell on earth. So though I believe there will be judgment, whether as a nation or (in the end) individually, by making such proclamations that are either a long time in the making or misunderstood, it undermines Christianity, in the same way that date setters do. We should definitely speak our minds about God’s law and morality as given to us in the Bible but not extend it to making end of days proclamations. The end will come, and we will be held accountable, but we don’t know when.

    get in line…your turn is coming

    I take no responsibility for this.

    You’ve always been equal to engage in the same marriage rules we have, 1 male, 1 female.

    Because NOTHING trumps love, right??? No boundaries whatsoever as long as it is love. OK, good luck with that. Please, when bio-combinations that displease you eventually make their way to the courts I expect SSM supports to completely get on board…no complaints.

  • [1] June 21, 2015 at 11:43am

    and are the imams of the UK allowed to call the others infidels????

  • June 18, 2015 at 9:18pm

    well, it’s not like ALL Catholics can vote on who can be Pope. That’s cardinals only.
