    Yes, I am a Mormon, and very happy that I am. I am not reducing God in any way. What the Bible though seems to be very clear about is, that what God creates is of infinite and amazing worth. The doctrine of God being Glorified Man (Christ is often referred to as the Son of Man) doesn’t diminish God–it ELEVATES US! Man is just below the angels, and we need to start respecting that. It’s an awesome bit of information and should serve to remind us that we need to love one another more, be more kind and Christ-like. It should remind us that God is our Father, He is well aware of His children and we were created in His image–and also that the resurrection is real and will occur in the same manner as Jesus’ was. It is very clear from the Bible that this is so. 1st Corinthians 15:
    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

    Too often there are those that believe IN the Bible–but they don’t BELIEVE IT. God is Glorified Man. He had a Son. Christ wasn’t kidding when He said, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me, hath seen the Father;” — John 14:9
    It’s perfectly logical

    God created man, in the likeness of God made he him: Gen. 5:1 .
    in the image of God made he man: Gen. 9:6 .

    they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet: Ex. 24:10 .
    written with the finger of God: Ex. 31:18 .
    Lord spake unto Moses face to face: Ex. 33:11 .
    thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen: Ex. 33:23 .
    With him will I speak mouth to mouth: Num. 12:8 .
    a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son: Matt. 3:17 .
    every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God: Matt. 4:4 .
    for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have: Luke 24:39 .
    he that hath seen me hath seen the Father: John 14:9 .
    the Son of man standing on the right hand of God: Acts 7:56 .

    Who, being in the form of God: Philip. 2:6 .
    our vile body … fashioned like unto his glorious body: Philip. 3:21 .
    the express image of his person: Heb. 1:3 .
    men, which are made after the similitude of God: James 3:9 .
    when he shall appear, we shall be like him: 1 Jn. 3:2 .

    I never took geometry. It wasn’t required in Idaho in the ’80s. I was fascinated by it, but I do agree, maybe we a little too excited about a fairly logical math pattern. I don’t think people appreciate that simplicity, precision, and consistency can be rather stimulating. Most kids today want the spectacle, explosions, and what not. This is quite a rudimentary, but well-played illusion–that’s particularly interesting.

    Amen. I’m glad I live in Texas, where I don’t worry about CC, but NCLB is still robbing us of our ability to function in a classroom. I love the kids, but administration…

    And now y’all know why HBO will never be in my home. Ever. I HATE HBO. Hate. I think I’ve made myself clear.

    If they can’t even balance the books on a primary level, how can they be expected to do it for an entire nation? Tendencies and patterns show the future. Don’t elect Democrats. Ever.

    When one is incapable of telling the truth, then yes, everything he says is a lie. You can’t get moral enlightenment from a person who suppressed his morals long ago.

    What a dynamic, God-fearing, lovely family. This is the family that we are all supposed to have. They are happy, well-adjusted, hard-working, principled, loving, and respectful to everyone around them (it helps that they aren’t numbed by the mindless drivel that is on television constantly). Having come from a big family as well, you are conditioned to be more outgoing, temperate, and industrious by necessity. You just have to be, because of all of the challenges. This mom and dad are going receive the blessings in this life and the next for being such valiant parents. These folks are champions. (Nothing in this life will ever compensate for failure in the home). The rewards will be felt for generations to come, and society is a lot better because of the Bates family.

    All part of the plan to demonize weapons to protect yourself. Over time, they destroy the concept of even realizing guns as an option, let alone important to our nation’s independence and protection. It’s like cigarettes. A common thing 50 years ago, but now marginalized pretty much through media and political campaigning against it (not that that is a bad thing). But the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms is critical for maintaining liberty. If that gets marginalized, goodbye to freedom and the Republic.

    That video was the first thing I thought of when we started having this “crisis” (for the past few years). I remember Glenn showing the video back when he was on Headline News. Once you see that monster talking about anthrax, you start to get sick to your stomach because you just know it’s going to happen. It’s just a matter of time–if we allowed sleeper cells to enter this country in the last 6 months, you won’t be able to blame anyone but this administration.

    Jaws was way better as a movie than the book. Yeah, that’s all I can think of.

    Such a great story–we are a good people. Awesome, O. Henry moment.

    I understand your reaction, but this isn’t about protecting illegals, allowing terrorists/gang members, or heaven forbid, abetting a seriously corrupt administration (ALL OF WHICH GLENN IS AGAINST; and believe me Glenn has been asking WHY? for a decade now). This has everything to do with being Christlike in a crisis–doing what is right and showing people that Christian charity is far greater than blanket government dependency politics. This isn’t about keeping them here. They’re here! At least don’t let them starve or die of disease. Obama and this admin are not going to secure the border. All the anger, foaming at the mouth, screaming, etc. isn’t going to change it. The irony is that Obama would let these children die and he wouldn’t think twice about it by the time he got to the back nine. This isn’t easy–but it’s right. Rick Perry is requesting money right now for help too. We all want the border secure. We all want this dictator of a President to make our nation safe and sovereign. But Obama won’t. And if we get all vicious, hate-filled, and vigilante about it, we’ll be adding fuel to the fire. We’ll ride this out and win if we don’t lose our heads–even many democrats will (and have) come to know that this loser of a president is misguided and on the wrong side of history. — Psalms 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”.

    Got 50 out of 50. It’s pretty easy. It’s not hard at all. I did struggle with question 21–it asked what party did B. Obama belong to. I didn’t see the Bolshevik party, so I put Democratic (same thing). :)

    This video is THE RANT of all time on the state of education in America today and much of what he has said, I have said in my mind, my heart, AND in my class. This needs to be seen and shared throughout the country. I believe we are witnessing a sea-change of attitude toward education, curriculum, Common Core and No Child Left Behind, and my greatest hope is that we can self correct and fix the problems that are driven by state and federal standards which are soul-crushing to the average student in America. My only disagreement would be in his views toward voucher systems–I see them as a catalyst for change, not an indictment of public school teachers. There are great teachers (and bad teachers) in any school system–what I want to see is more choice in the hands of parents, for I know that they are not disinterested. Every other word he says though is the silent SCREAM of all teachers across America. We TEACH STUDENTS, not subjects. And teaching them morality, character, love, hard-work, devotion to excellence, and self-esteem through achievement, should never take a back seat to rigor and/or college and career readiness “standards” (which are seemingly never determined by educators and have not been proven reliable even by the very colleges that are supposed to accept them).

    It’s a WONDERFUL life (not wonderfull). Just sayin’ :)

    The same thing happened to a student on our tour in Paris last week. She was in the metro and put her feet up on the seat next to her and on the next stop, she was DETAINED. She didn’t know what she’d done wrong, she didn’t speak French, and was terrified. We got it worked out, but the subway cops are insane.

    Could they have just shown a glimpse of Gabrielle Union? C’mon, she’s HOT.

  • [15] June 30, 2014 at 4:20pm

    Well, as he said, it was a matter of self-interest, not principle. Sums up the Democratic Party in one sentence: All self-interest, NO principles.

    Wow. “Hello, pot? Kettle, here. Did you call me black?” I guess PROJECTION isn’t just found in a movie theater…
