Oakland – if it had continued I would have. But it was once, 25 years ago, and no repeat. I think I’m good.

I agree that USUALLY we hear God’s voice in subtle or coincidental ways, but I know that ONE time 25 years ago I heard His voice. The message was perfectly in line with Scripture and I wasn’t talking to myself as it came out of left field and shut me up. Here’s the thing. A lot of times when we pray we aren’t in it 100%. We’re just distracted or whatever. For some reason, I was in the zone. I was praying and there was nothing else. I won’t tell you the message, but it was akin to me praying “1, 2, 3, 4, ….” and out of the blue comes “tangerine!” Something totally unexpected but absolutely an answer to my prayer and Scriptural. Maybe if we could get into the zone better we would actually hear Him more often.

How tiresome. The same old same old. I completely believe in God and Jesus as my savior….I’m Christian in every regard and I don’t care what he believes. Do people really pester him incessantly about this? I doubt it. As for the tired “think, don’t just believe what you were told as a child,” he thinks adults actually do this too? I’ve studied my faith. I can’t PROVE my faith but I have enough evidences for myself. I am NOT alone in this. It’s 2016….vast information is at our fingertips. I doubt many adults blindly accept in this era.
I am so fed up with these nut jobs. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the issue is “the gender you identify as.” That is a fuzzy statement that can change by the day or be faked. If you have gone through the genital mutilating surgery AND are on the appropriate hormones, then go to the bathroom that matches your plumbing. If you haven’t done any of that, then go to the bathroom that matches your plumbing. I believe this issue is not about transgenders but about transvestites and fakers. I can tell you with complete certainly that the screwball 17 yo boy who lives next to my mom would LOVE to say he’s feeling female and enter the girls’ locker room….and his stupid parents would laugh at him. He is surely not the only one out there who would do this. If you’ve gone through the surgery etc then I don’t believe you’re a threat. If you haven’t, and you end up in an opposite gender bathroom, I think the potential is ther.

and that opponents are “technophobes” and Luddites and for the common good we must all submit. Or, different scenario, you can certainly choose to opt out of the chip but you will be vilified and boycotted.

I work as a medical transcriptionist, and I have seen my work load decline greatly over the past few years as health systems have had to move to EMR (electronic medical records) to meet govt compliance – in order to receive Medicare/Medicaid money. As an MT I can VERIFY that I (and thousands like me) have caught medical errors in the reports. The new way of doing things is for the care provider to enter data directly using drop down menus and abbreviations (the most expensive person in the room by the way) and hope to God it is correct. There is actually a disclaimer at the bottom of the reports I’ve seen stating there may be errors. I have to achieve a high level of accuracy to keep my job, EMR not so much. All so that the govt can data mine . My advice to all reading is to keep tight scrutiny on your records.

my edit didn’t “stick” so here is more: As for the tired god of the gaps line, people who believe in God see His work even when something is UNDERSTOOD….we don’t relegate Him to the unknown.

if all I had were myths then I too would have thrown it all way. But I find within the Bible a brief overview of Big Bang, a history, a moral code, a long list of fulfilled prophecies regarding the Messiah, and a group of people who after Jesus’ crucifixion, when common sense would indicate fleeing or at least keeping a low profile, out PROCLAIMING Him. I find none of those things for Zeus or Santa. As for the tired god of the gaps line, people who believe in God see His work even when something is UNDERSTOOD….we don’t relegate Him to the unknown.

Not the slightest physical evidence to support a historical Jesus exists; no artifacts, personal affects, art or clothing. All claims about Jesus originate from writings of other people. There are no contemporary Roman records that shows Pontius Pilate executing a man named Jesus. Historically there occurs not a single contemporary writing from anywhere that mentions Jesus. All documents about Jesus came 20-50 years after the life of the alleged Jesus.

How would Jesus vote is actually a question I ask myself, and I think you have answered wonderfully.
