    I definitely won’t vote for Hillary and don’t think I’ll be able to vote for Trump. Very strange position to be in.

    It’s pretty sad that your ridiculous diatribe has positive votes.

    @slenderman and gunshow

    I understand your perspective, I really do. I admit that it’s not logical to say that people are leaving the faith because they have not been asked to sacrifice anything.

    But once one reads and understands the words of Christ regarding sacrifice, He being perfect yet sacrificed all for us, only then can one fully come to know Christ.

    We are still commanded to sacrifice, but not by shedding blood of animals. Our highest sense of sacrifice is achieved as we make ourselves more sacred or holy.

    We do this by our obedience to the commandments of God. Thus, the laws of obedience and sacrifice are always intertwined. As we comply with these and other commandments, something wonderful happens to us. We become more sacred and holy— more like our Lord!”

    In fact, the word sacrifice means literally “to make sacred,” or “to render sacred.”

    Real, personal sacrifice never was about placing an animal on the altar. Instead, it is a willingness to put the animal in us upon the altar and letting it be consumed!

    Sacrifice is still necessary if we are to develop faith strong enough to lay hold on eternal life. I believe we should increase our spiritual devotion and service to the Lord and others in order to demonstrate our love for Him and our Heavenly Father.

    @kickagrandma

    I can say that I’ve seen your posts along with mine here for about 6 years now.

    I certainly hope that your longevity here would be a considering factor before any posts would be pulled. The posts I’ve seen of yours have always contributed to the conversation.

    Well said PGMike!

    @glassaudioguy – I didn’t ask you to distinguish – I asked you to define. If you are going to tell me I’m not a Christian, then please define what you believe a Christian to be. I’ll be interested to see if your definition follows that of the Bible.

    In case you want a starting point – the name “Christian” was a name first given to believers in Jesus Christ at Antioch in Syria, about A.D. 43 (Acts 11:26). It was perhaps given contemptuously but was accepted by followers of Christ as a fit title. See 1 Pet. 4:16.

    Just a hint to save you some time – I may not be as much a “theological illiterate” as you assumed. :)

    @blest

    If our society was becoming more and more Christian, then your feminism analogy may work. But frankly, it’s the opposite. The reality is that our country is less Christian than it has been in the past.

    I’m sure you agree that many of the major Christian denominations such as Baptists and Catholics have shrunk in numbers over the past several years.
    And to answer your questions, I’m not saying that certain denominations are shrinking and others are growing because one is poaching from the other – converts come from all different backgrounds. That’s all.

    Finally, you and I have discussed your views on my religion for years – and I am happy we live in a country where we can disagree on theology. :) But it is intellectually dishonest to say that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not a Christian denomination. Again, you may disagree with some of our doctrine, but you would have to create a pretty funky definition of what a Christian is to exclude me as one. However, feel free to provide your definition or purity test of what makes someone a true Christian in your view.

    Sounds like Trump if he doesn’t think you’re being “fair” to him.

    Most people won’t like this – but the reason so many have left the churches is because most churches have turned to ‘feel good’ sermons where everyone wins regardless of personal sacrifice or personal morality.

    According to most churches now days – go ahead and sin all you want, don’t worry about getting baptized, don’t worry about repentance, so long as you claim to have – quote – accepted Christ in your heart.

    Your kids are just doing what you told them they can do – and will still expect the same rewards as those who have truly put down their nets and followed Christ.

    It’s a nice thought – and I wish you were right. But the reality is that these surveys didn’t ask if people attend a brick and mortar building – but rather what religion the people identify with. The number of people in America that identify as Christian is shrinking, as much as it pains me to see.

    However, the good news is that there are still many Christian denominations that continue to see rapid growth such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormons).

    Too much logic, they’ll never understand.

    Not too long ago “trans” anything was called “mentally ill”.

  • [17] April 28, 2016 at 1:04pm

    Exactly right. Now days if you stand up for traditional values, you are called hateful or evil. If you just go along with the sins of the world, you are called tolerant or good.

  • [38] April 28, 2016 at 1:01pm

    “somebody who wanted to basically state that transgender women are men, and that’s not okay with me,”

    Uhhhh… yeah… a man who thinks he is a woman is still a man. Don’t really care if that is okay with you, because it is okay with reality.

    But okay then, I personally identify as a 1st round draft quarterback tonight – can’t wait to see what happens when I show up! They better not discriminate against me.

    I care much more about the ‘stand down’ order that she is ultimately responsible for – leaving Americans to die.

    “The details leading up to the attack remain a mystery.”

    Definitely no white people involved then – otherwise it would be the headline.

  • [34] April 21, 2016 at 7:44pm

    Yup.

    What the Sheriff said was pure logic – hard to argue with that.

    Bet the women who were raped after Hurricane Katrina in the very stadium he coaches in (and makes his millions in) wished they had a gun to fend off the bad guys while they waited DAYS for the government to come save them.

  • [8] April 11, 2016 at 12:13pm

    Dang dust in my eyes!! That was fantastic.

    “Noles has been charged with obstruction of an officer and disorderly conduct,”

    Are you kidding me? That’s all they charged him with? As a former Prosecutor I can tell you that I saw in the video (just to start with) Aggravated Assault, Assault, Disorderly Conduct, and Attempted Kidnapping. There better be a couple felonies in there.

    Mob mentality… exactly what Trump feeds on.
