For much of the 19th century, church services were held each Sunday in the House of Representatives with the Marine Band providing worship music. Back then, no one suggested or agreed that Satanists should be able to have services there. Why? Because they still had COMMON SENSE.

I don’t mean for this to sound critical but it seems to me that what this pastor discovered is a very basic concept in Christianity and should have been covered in seminary. Having said that, it is easy for anyone to slip into legalism and his comments about sinning less indicate to me that is what happened. Fortunately, his time spent studying the bible led him to (re)discover grace.

What a strange claim to make. The evidence actually demonstrates the exact opposite as even liberal scholars acknowledge his existence if not the miracles and resurrection.
Well actually it doesn't. The best scholarly research says at the very best that there is only a 1 in 3 chance of Jesus being a real person, but a realistic view is more like 1 in several thousand. Do the research and reject the hype and you will come to a different conclusion. Christianity grew out of Gnosis. Christianity as we know was fabricated by the Romans. It's values are great but the greatness is in the myth. If you care to think it through it doesn't even make sense. Ask God not ignorant men. God won't lie. Christianity is an inferior concept of Love. It's blasphemous to strap God with the dysfunction that Christianity teaches. Those concepts are rooted in human blood sacrifice... and that ain't the God I know:) Peace and Love... don't stop the quest. You have been sold a lie, and a cheap one at that:)
Just a start. You owe yourself the truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR02ciandvg&index=42&list=FLZMzYPyZ-Wn2Y1bNMxrFmFA
This is America where you can believe anything you want. The problem starts when you insist your belief is fact, when you begin to accept your myth as literal. The definition of the word "Know" (Gnosis) does not contain the words belief, faith or hope. Either you "know" God or you don't. Faith is for people who do not Know God. Here are some facts you need to "know". If you want to know more you need to ask God to show you. That is what I do. My only regret is that I listened for so long to people less intelligent than me and accepted them as knowledgeable. They were not. I din't come to Know what I know from videos or reading. I came to it through Christianity... I graduated Christianity, but I transcended it as well. I know now it is inferior teaching but I appreciate it because I wouldn't be where I am without it. Don't ever stop growing. That is the most evil thing about Christianity, once saved always saved by the work of someone else, then left to rot on the shelf. The proof of life is growth. Salvation is an Awakening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGIOU11gjFE&index=37&list=FLZMzYPyZ-Wn2Y1bNMxrFmFA

This is classic. He makes himself out to be the victim. A few years ago we left his mentor’s church in MD. Same deal there. CJ Mahaney was outed as abusive, manipulative, liar, etc. At the first members meeting to discuss, he shows up with security as if to say that the people he abused are the perps and he is the victim. Pathetic. Sociopath.

I was there. It was a great day. I reported a summary here along with 54 pics.
I agree. To paraphrase an apocryphal quote, “There is a gun behind everyone blade of grass”.
However, I am wondering if ISIS will take a different tact. They could come across the Southern boarder (and probably already have) and kidnap a mid-West apple pie all-American family and decapitate them on Youtube. That would instill terror. So what do I propose? Tactical nuclear weapons. I am not kidding. Turn portions of Western Iraq into glass. Show them that we really are crazier than they are. Because when it comes down to it, we really are. And if we happen to catch some of them here, we would make our own Youtube video. Now, some will say that if we stoop to their level, we lose. Maybe. But there will be a lot less of them at their victory party.

I won’t address suicide versus murder here but rather what Hillary was talking about. The sticking point at the time was that Vince Foster was in charge of the Clinton’s blind trust. It was 6 months over due in submitting because Foster was trying to clean up irregularities. What those irregularities were has never been disclosed and were, presumably, described in the documents that Maggie Williams removed from the safe in Vince Foster’s office the night he was found.
Also, and little known, is that the Clinton’s owned a condo in DC. There is a theory that whatever happened with Vince happened there. The existence of the condo came out as an aside in the 1996 Whitewater hearing testimony.

We may be about to hit an inflection point. If an American is jailed for speaking the name of Jesus, that is a game changer and the response will be profound.

Here is some context. For much of the 19th century, the US Capitol was used for church services on Sunday with the US Marine band providing worship music. “Freedom from religion” is invented out of thin air.

It’s working. They are starting to fold. But someone needs to go to jail over this and laws need to be changed.

I work in an industry that has been heavily impacted by SOX. Everything Bevin has said makes perfect sense to me and is consistent with my understanding of the law. The problem is that most people can’t even spell SOX and will believe everything they read.
To all those commenting and calling Bevin’s honesty in to question, you don’t know what you are talking about. If you aren’t familiar with the SOX requirements, you shouldn’t be accusing this man of lying.

“If the United States produces a generation of science students who don’t believe in science, that’s troublesome,” he said
The fallacy there is the conclusion that if you don’t hold to the theory of Evolution then you don’t believe in science. If that were true, you would have to disqualify every scientist prior to 1859.

Yeah, Bill, we knew who they were when we started watching. Duh. Glad you are caught up. I think it is hilarious that you feel the need to suggest someone google something. Geez, thanks, we never would have thought of that.
With regards to ratings, the drop is due to the fact that many fans now simply refuse to watch A&E. Put it on another network and the ratings will go back up.
I would consider myself a conservative Christian and it is true that more liberal Christians are using these events to make political attacks. Having said that, the whole Gospel Coalition, TG4, Mohler, etc has, in my opinion, become poisoned with authoritarianism that reeks of (and descends from) the shepherding movement of the 70′s and 80′s. These groups (SGM, Acts 29, Gospel Coalition) are destroying lives through heavy handed authority and legalism.
A darker side to this story is the covering up of child sex abuse by some of these groups in order to maintain reputation, members and income. Boz Tchividjian has done some great work on this here http://netgrace.org/
How is that people did not know this already? It has been widely known since at least the mid eighties that three of the four members of U2 were Christians. Not to mention there are references through out their music.

I am not a conspiracy theorist. I am really not. But why would Chechnyans attack us out of the blue? Who benefits from that? I would say Putin does given they have been a burr in his saddle for a long time.

Ok. I’ll admin it. I like The Smiths. Morrissey is a whiner though. Johnny Marr ended up not being able to stand him either.

A few years ago, I was in a focus group that concerned smart meters. One of the questions the guy asked us was “How would you feel if your air conditioner was turned off on a hot day during a brown out”. The very eclectic group responded with one voice of outrage.
But my point is this. Smart meters are about the power company controlling when and how much power you use. As was indicated in the question to our group, the power company could turn off your AC and there would be nothing you could do about it.
