I was where you are. Same upbringing, same turn from religion to oneself for answers. The problem is determining the “beneficial or harmful” thing. Everyone has their point of view which may or may not be reasonable or correct. So, is their an absolute truth one can rely on with out having to depend on “man’s truth”? I have chosen to trust the Holy Bible as God’s truth revealed to man (as translated from the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic). It’s a steady anchor in today’ s world of shifting beliefs and morals and a sure pathway to eternal life.

Oozy, you need to coozy up to Jesus! No where in the New Testament does he promote killing for his followers to spread the faith. “Love your enemies and do good to those who persecute you”; that’s what changes peoples hearts for eternity. Not just the here and now and not just for short term gain. Does it make more sense for a loving God to want you to kill for him or love as he loves you? If God loves killing so much are you anxious to continue killing for him in whatever eternity you believe? Choose life, choose Jesus!

America is next thanks to our own godless progressive politicians and itching ear electorate.
Noah,, you are right on and this is why we should vote out all these A Holes who have been in political office for most of their lives. We are FOOLS if we keep doing the same thing expecting a better result

Sorry Europe, your godless liberal ideology has welcomed the tyranny of sharia among you. Just as they did in once Christian Lebanon, and elsewhere, they do to you. Now convert or die!
There is another option to 'convert or die'.......Fight.
Strider.....come on these are liberals we are talking about....they don't fight. It takes away from their "victim" status.
Wait Godless? What are you talking about? This is a childish fight between people of different (albeit mostly the same monotheistic babble) religions. Where is the Godless part?
In theory, conversion can go both ways. Unfortunately, conversion to Christianity or western ways can involve a death sentence.
Germany and other places have a serious problem and a choice to make. Change to suit the immigrants, change the immigrants to suit them, or send them away (somehow).
Change the immigrants to suit them, pushing acculturation, goes against multiculturalism which some have clung to as if it was religiously revealed 'truth'. & The immigrants also have to be willing to change.
Changing to suit the immigrants involves giving ground in free speech, women's clothing, and other areas. Surrender by increments in the hope of finding peace is like negotiating with the Tripoli pirates. ( You pay more and more to not be attacked until war becomes inevitable and you have spent your money on bribes instead of warships. )
Why waste time trying to be more like someone who wants to kill anyone different? You will never be identical enough - unless you become an enemy of all you love.
Europeans need to follow the IRA Irish Republican Army's model of smuggling in weapons, guns, explosives through tightly held networks. The Muslims are doing that right now in Europe. Europeans will need to take out their politicians and law enforcement political appointees first. Threats of violence, terrorism and death seems to be the only thing liberals respect, a la Islam.
The root cause of the problem is Christians being taught to be pacifists in response to terrorism, rather than to defend themselves as Jesus taught. See article "It is time for Christians to Fight Back." at researching.wordpress.com
In summary, Jesus taught two responses to violence, one to the individual oppressor (turn the other cheek – Matthew 5:38-40) and the other to terrorists (arm yourselves – Luke 22:35-38). Christian religious leaders refuse to teach the second response, thereby cooperating with Christian oppressors in the murder, rape and enslavement of Christians.

I’m on board all the way for Pratt’s “Game Plan”,,,,, except for, ah….. the wild animal meat…. yuck!
Have you ever tried venison, wild turkey (not the liquid version), or anything? Sooooo much better than store bought meat. Healthier too.
Also, really like Pratt. Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy were great. Kids also loved the Lego Movie (he was the voice of Emmett). Seems like a real stand up guy.
Best quality meat you can get. No antibiotics, no hormones, no anything artificial. Just look at the color and compare it with the crap in a supermarket.
I bet I could change your mind with one venison dinner!
If God hadn't wanted man to eat animals... He wouldn't have made them out of meat!

What muslim woman wears a bright orange burka other than to flaunt herself. Time for a good caning! lol
Not my poetry, was composed in 1963 by Oscar Brown, and recorded later that decade by Tom Jones. I just think of these lyrics when I hear these idiots talking about bringing these snakes into our country and expecting us to welcome them into our communities…
Were any bystanders hurt, or just gang members?
This isn't shocking. This is an average weekend in Chicago.
This is also why normal people don't often frequent Biker Bars, unless you're hilariously unobservant like the Clark Griswald. Although.. seeing some of those waitresses it might actually be worth the risk.
WOW! Who knew that bikers were such fat slobs?! Now one must ask which one is the biker and which one is the 'hog'?
The heading says "Shock"
I wasn't "Shocked" ??

Mitt’s hissy fit over the lack of support he received from Evangelicals in 2012 continues!

Bernie is not really a Jew. He’s a Statist. Another Socialist/Communist knucklehead with dreams of lording over all us “ignoramuses”.
You really should be careful about cursing the Jews…..you’ll end up cursing yourself (Genesis 12:3).

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. As a nation we failed at the first of these long ago (1973). We compromised then and 60 million babies later were denied life (not to mention the suffering most women endure long after having their baby killed). No defeat, no surrender and certainly no compromise! It’s a heaven or go to hell choice.

We live in a sin cursed world. When left to ourselves we’ll choose the selfish path. Gay, Straight or somewhere in between we all fall short and are in need of saving grace. Take the log out of your eye before preaching about the speck in another’s. Pride is huge problem in today’s Church. Humble yourself believers, love your enemies doing good to those who hate you.
I am confident that Obama will be jailed next for failing to enforce laws he is constitutionally obligated to enforce. After all, we are a nation of laws, right?
I'm pretty sure that The True One is not in her corner, as she has severely misinterpreted, His message.

She’s apart of Obama’s “nation transformation”. Turn society against one another, then for our own good, strip us of our defenses.

@RNM -verses 30 to 31 of Chapter 24 describe His Second Coming that some in “this generation” will see. Has not happened yet, but will soon. Repent and be saved!
 June 22, 2015 at 4:29pm
Not quite. “This generation” spoken by Jesus in Matthew 24:34 is the generation that will experience all the signs and tribulations he listed in the previous verses (verses 4-33). “This generation” can very well be our generation. BTW, no need to exaggerate your point. Your figure of 20,000 generations comes to 640,000 years ago (based on 32 yrs per generation).

Scoffers, please remember, all past Biblical prophecies have come to pass with 100% accuracy. Future prophetic events will likewise unfold in God’s timing, as written. Repent, believe in Jesus who died for all our sins and accept His salvation before the coming wrath; for you are not guaranteed tomorrow. But make today the day you say, “I am a child of the most high God”.
No, they haven't, but it's amusing that you think so.
Time to call you out blinky.
Be specific in your statement, "No, they haven't...". This is your moment to shine. The gauntlet has been thrown down. Take up my gauge, knave, if you dare.
100% accuracy when "interpreted" by someone who wants them to be true. These are the same "prophecies" and events that have been used for the past 150 years by individuals claiming that the end times were upon us. At some point it has to be called for what it is.
@StampOutStupid... Nice try but the owness is on the authors of the book, the auther of this article, Noah Noel and you to prove they have come to pass with 100% accuracy with no use of literary license.... Virtually all of the "biblical" prophecies have been said to have occurred under 10+ referenced events over the past 150 years.
""Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened."
Jesus said that 20,000 generations ago. He was wrong.
@RNM -verses 30 to 31 of Chapter 24 describe His Second Coming that some in "this generation" will see. Has not happened yet, but will soon. Repent and be saved!
NOAH, "Scoffers, please remember, all past Biblical prophecies have come to pass with 100% accuracy. "
So this one book, the Christian bible, claims that someone in the past made a prediction and then later on in that same one book it says that these prophecies came to pass?

I wonder if Big Bill knows the full title to “Origin of the Species…by Means of Natural Selection or The Preservation of Favored Races In The Struggle For Life”. Sounds like an ugly racist book and theory to me. I believe Hitler referred to it extensively for his Final Solution.
