    True love is the unconditional act of sacrificing something of yourself for someone else. Giving what you would otherwise use for yourself to another. In a relationship, if two people do this without reserve, it is an incredible experience.

    In our western culture, we tend to think of it as a feeling. A noun describing how we react to someone on an emotional basis. Biblical, it is a verb, an action. Something we actually do committing ourselves in act to one and other through acts of physical, emotional, mental and giving without expecting anything back in return.

    In my own life experiences, pure love in a relationship is almost impossible to find. It is a saintly life to be able to sacrifice for one and another thinking of them first before yourself and it is the opposite of what western culture teaches in a me first mentality society. For most people, its is a balancing act of self needs to another needs and being human, quite understandable. Trying to live a life as such with limited resources and someone else who does not reciprocate back can be heartbreaking and frustrating at times but then, that love is not being unconditional from the givers standpoint because they are expecting something back. I hope that in life everyone finds some example of such pure love, I have found mine in the bible, but I seek it elsewhere in life as well. You do see it occasionally in real life, good parenting, a great loving relationship in marriage, strong friendship

    Interesting that a Muslim terrorist rocket hit a Boeing 777 on the Tripoli Tarmac last week destroying the plane and the FAA did not shut down the Tripoli airport.

    But a terrorist Muslim missile lands on a house 1 mile away from an Israel airport protected with Iron Dome and the FAA does shut down all traffic to Israel.

    Seems a bit biased… politically motivated… antisemitic… supportive of terrorist… supportive of Israel’s enemies since Hamas is declaring it in itself a victory over Israel:

    Seems like Obama is for our enemies, although he did say if it came down to it, he would support the Muslim cause over our own interest: In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

    So no real surprise here that our president is being a traitor to our allies and our own interest in this case. It is just a surprise the majority of the public does not comprehend what is happening on the world stage.

    Many have been saying this for years and being called kooks:
    The Republicans and Democrats are really one party now.
    It is a correct statement. The RINO establishment has teamed up with the democrats and that is why Obamacare has not been overturned by now, it is why the Republican ran the Mississippi primary WITH the democratic support to take out a true conservative, it is why you see the republicans walking hand in hand like Christi did with Obama right before the presidential election. Washington is corrupt. Any legitimate honest conservative is battling and establishment mentality against both parties along with the establishment media.

    It is why the tea Party which stands for the constitution and following the law are also call kooks and is libeled by the Republicans. It is the same thing that happened with the Birchers in the 80′s.
    It is a logic free zone, a zone of near pure corruption and unless people realize this, the country is lost. American will need to stand up for what this country was founded on, why it was and how it will look to it’s future on the world stage.

    In the next year and a half, America will face it largest trial, one which will shake the foundations of this once great nation. The Harbinger is coming and the soul of this nation will stand at a cross road. This November will in part help to determine the direction it takes.

    Happens every year in the spring on Lake Erie. Flying a small general aviation plane out to Put-In-Bay can almost be a hazard as they splat all over the front windshield. Darn hard to clean off after it happens. Everything pretty much gets covered for a week or two and then they die off. But always a bit of a spectacle around the lake.

    I think in any war, a just side does feel terrible when things like this happen. The US and Israel try to avoid such but this is a reality of war. Our culture tries to avoid it, shy away from it and even now feel terribly guilty about such but it is still a very real part of WAR.
    War is about killing. Unjust things happen in war.
    Islamist and the Palestinian leadership is know for using kids as suicide bombers, human shields and has a history of killing children and blaming it on their enemies. Frankly, I think you should go to war and kill every one of the people that justify using kids as bombs shields and excuses for their own bloody history and conquest. In that case, it is a moral ground to eliminate such inhuman trash.

    More over to kill those who are trying to kill you. Look up Wikipedia on yearly rocket launches into Israel. look up

    It is insane that Israel has the patience they have to put up with such and that the world is upset for them defending themselves. It is morally, ethically and fundamentally justified to do such and to wage war against such.

    Thank goodness for those that are bothered by war and for those who preach peace while launching rockets, using children as suicide bombs, human shields and to teach and preach hate, wipe THEM out. THAT IS the moral high ground to justify such actions from.

    Christ comes back as the lion in the 2nd coming.
    Jesus noted that he was not changing a jot or tittle of his fathers words. His father id many acts of violence, which were justified. THAT is the key. If Israel is attacked, they are justified to defend themselves.

    The middle east people respect power, not so much organizations governments or theology when forced. That mindset is very different from western culture. There is such a strong feeling of hate within factions that I don’t believe there will be a peaceful solution until the second coming. While I don’t think Israel striking back is a long term solution, on the short term, they must be able to defend themselves. Unfortunately the only direction this will go is in more violence and war.

    Israel must put the ultimate faith in God but to say they must roll over and die is wrong.

    Strategically, it makes sense. In the middle east, the only thing respected is power and it is the only thing that has allowed Israel to succeed.
    With all the hate there though, the tactic only stalls the inevitable. Hamas will survive and frankly, it is prophesy that the final conflict is by those that raise the black and yellow flags. Israel needs to put their faith ultimately in God.

    I stand with Israel.

    Jesus actually did say something about this.
    He noted he was not here to change a Jot or Tittle of his fathers words. So, in facts, Jesus did condemn such actions as they were in the Old Testament/Torah.

    Jesus also noted for followers to love thy enemy, to lead by example. By this statement, that all people must be allowed through free will to choose and decide how they will live.
    When judgement comes, Jesus will look to their hearts and know truly who they are in that moment, not because their lifestyle was dictated by force but that they lived of their own free will and chosen justifications.

    For Christians, it is not their position to judge but rather lead and influence those in need spiritually by example and love.
    Christians should not rush to condemn people, that is not their position to assume. By the same token, they are to know the differences between good and evil and position themselves accordingly and to be able to judge the actions of others.

    Elton John is trying to justify his own actions by making a statement that is false. He knows he is wrong, which is why he is pointing to Jesus as the moral authority and making a false claim putting his own words falsely as the thoughts of Jesus. But anyone that has studied the Bible knows Elton John’s to be blatantly false.

    If this does not show that the two party system is becoming a corrupt one party system in Washington, I don’t know what else will, short of a final hit on the head demise of America.

    This is exactly why the Tea Party must come into it’s own power and why conservatives and moderate middle of the road common sense voters must start to vote for the Tea Party and throw out the incumbents.

  • [10] June 18, 2014 at 12:30pm

    the res skins picked the name because they honored the American Indians. not to disparage them as Democrat liberals do. This is a clear case of reverse discrimination.

    If I was the owner of that team and the politico’s did this to me, I would move out. Happy top leave a place that attacks them when they give so much in revenue, entertainment and civic pride. Given the last is under attack, I know there are plenty of other cities that would love to host an NFL team.

    That is the evil of Islam, to take away the free will, to take away the freedom to choose. In doing so you corrupt the heart. That is Satan’s plan. ANY time you see that, whether in religion or government, it should be a glaring red flag of evil tidings..

    It is the reason Islam hates the west and Israel. Both are foundational upon God given freedom, the right to choose and do so of your own free will. What the United States stand for flies in the face of the Islam theology. It is why Islam has tried to bring down this country since it very beginnings. (Barbary War)

    If Christians were to demand the same thing Islam did, we would be turning just as evil as they are. You shall know them by their deeds. The acts Islam does to force their will upon others is evil and done in an unjust manner.
    Never espouse such things even in jest, keep to the word and espouse free will, goodness and righteousness and freedom. THAT is the Christian way.

    Our nation was founded on Christian Judaic principles and evil tries to fight such, hide such, rewrite and denies such.

  • [4] June 17, 2014 at 10:47am

    Any good philosophy can be made evil by an evil person. But that evil person depends on the ignorance of the others they influence.

    That is why it is especially important to study the bible such to turn that tide.
    The Bible is many things to many people but it truth is simple and that of love. If you see it being used as an excuse to do evil, then it is a huge red flag against the person doing such.

    Jesus warned that there would be those who come to him noting the evil things they did in his name and he would turn them away saying he did not know them.

    It is a religion of absolutes because there is a difference between right and wrong, good and evil. But an evil person wants to blur those lines. That is why you need to study the bible, to seek the word to know what man made doctrine is being used instead of God’s words.

    The bible is a great tool for life and like any tool, it can be used for evil things. If you truly understyand it, it cannot be used for such.

    Wow, you have a traitor at the DHS admitting the president is a traitor as well. A revolution has happened and the majority does not have a clue tor the education to know better.

    It’s like the latest Captain America movie where Hydra comes out publicly and starts attacking and you have a hard time knowing who really is good any longer and who is the enemy.

    In this case, it is subtle enough that not many people are paying attention. Nothing less I would expect from a president who’s bible is Saul Alinsky’s book dedicated to the Satan. Horrifying to read these tweets and confirm that opur president has no intent of honoring his oath of office.

    The U.C.C. is known as the most liberal denominational church in the US. My church dropped out years ago after a huge push to become the largest homosexual membership supporting denomination in the US. It is absolutely no surprise that they would make a push like this against the NFL.
    I would not take their protest as an insult, more like a badge of honor.

    The post office in Sylvania OH is great, super customer service, fast delivery, they are awesome here.

    When I track my packages, if it goes through California, New Jersey or New York, I know I can add at least two days of delay at a minimum. Seems there are certain parts of the country where things get bogged down and my guess is because of the local culture.

    God is great. Yahweh the greatest. ;)
    Your proclamation though has a bit less footing. As for Lynn, the point I made below:

    Christianity is a set of beliefs, absolute recognition of Jesus as lord Savior and that there are absolute definitions of good and evil. With that in mind, note Lynn’s testimony on Capitol Hill.

    “So, you don’t believe somebody would go to hell if they do not believe Jesus is the way, the truth, the life?,” the congressman continued.

    Lynn explained that he doesn’t believe someone would go to hell for failure to embrace “a specific set of ideas in Christianity.” But Gohmert wasn’t satisfied with that answer, responding that the Christian viewpoint is very specific on the matter of salvation.”

    Christianity without the belief of Christ is well, not on solid footing either in all honesty. Hurst for some to hear it or want to believe with a more Unitarian mindset. But Jesus “is the way the truth and the life, and no one gets through to the father except through me.” John 14:6

    He says so, it’s that easy.

    He has a belief system that clashes with what Christianity teaches. He is falsely proclaim himself to represent that which he doers not.

    Moreover, he claims in his above attached briefing that there should be a strict separation of church and state. That flies in what should be his Christian beliefs as well the history going back past 1943 (supreme court ruling rewriting US history). In fact, our country is founded on Christian Judaic beliefs and it is found in over 15,000 documents as well inscribed and buildings, monuments and culture.

    This is purely a liberal agenda to make our rights Government given and not God given, so government can take them away. This is everything our forefathers had warned about, why ethics and principles were foundational to our country and why those trying to destroy it need to erase it from history.

  • [49] June 11, 2014 at 7:36am

    Lynn is a false Christian, a wolf in sheep clothing. He has already noted that one does not have to believe in Jesus to be a Christian.
    Sorry, but that is a” I will try to believe just in case and pontificate how great I am and how you should be” attitude. Typical liberal and a false voice that has no standing given his false beliefs.

    He is a false figurehead brought on by liberals to damage those he falsely represents.

    Bill Maher keeps assigning mans faults as Gods Fault. He also does not want to admit that the US has fallen morally and ethically. He also states that morally corrupt people that have misused religion makes all religion bad.
    When he asked a complex question of Ralph Reed, he kept interrupting and would not allow him to answer. Maher wants the magic pill. He wants to do what he wants but wants to say he is ethically on a high standing. He wants to be able to justify societies morals as the foundational ethics. They are different. There is good and bad, right and wrong and you cannot adjust Gods words to your own morals and declare what you want to pick and choose to be the final word.
    The bible lays out what is the absolute ethical right things to do. Because man has made his own laws and corrupted the word, Jesus came, clarified the word and grafted others to join in the original covenant. He challenged man to be better and gave us the ability through his grace to pursue our potential.
    Maher does not understand because he wants to follow his own heart under his own rules and with his own justifications for his actions. But there are consequences for such and while he feels his finish line is at the grave, I feel I am a child if God just getting my footing at that point. If Christians are wrong, then they have lived a good life trying to make the world a better place. If they are right, the possibilities are beyond our imaginations.
