One word comes to mind as to what’s missing in Church…Jesus.

What bugs me with some conservative talking heads is that I actually remember working in Highshcool. I all too well remember making $10,000 and paying over $1000 in taxes. I had to pay taxes because I owned my own business, it wasn’t taken out like working at McDonalds. Taking 10% of 10k is not the same as taking 10% of 100k.
Wow… Please tell me this is satire. Otherwise, the amount of pure unadulterated stupidity in your post is staggering.
“What bugs me with some conservative talking heads is that I actually remember working in Highshcool.”
Most of us here remember working RIGHT NOW. You have to go back to high school to remember what it’s like to pay taxes?
“I all too well remember making $10,000 and paying over $1000 in taxes. I had to pay taxes because I owned my own business, it wasn’t taken out like working at McDonalds.”
It was taken out EXACTLY as if you worked at McDonald’s. The only difference is you had to write the check yourself and all at once instead of McDonald’s doing it for you each week.
“Taking 10% of 10k is not the same as taking 10% of 100k.”
You’re right… The guy making $100k is paying as much into the tax system as YOU EARN. Even with a flat system he’s still throwing you over his shoulder and carrying your @$$ through life.

So let me get this straight. Beck fires his new york manager because of $350,000 in wasteful spending. But blows $400,000 on a flag. He’s worked up enough about the wasteful spending to maul over it for a week saying what could we have done with that money. The shows we could’ve produced. How about all the people Mercury one could’ve helped? No, the money was used to buy a $2 piece of canvas.
One of the greatest mistakes Paul made was to cave into peer pressure. It’s like saying when you go to Washington, you loose your soul. Paul went to Jerusalem and lost his soul to all the moderates like James and Peter who were living persecution free in Jerusalem.

Acts 21:21 “…you(Paul) teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children, or live according to our customs.” I hope these guys do justice to what Paul was all about. Hyper Grace.
"Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law."

No one on here understands what a carrier goes thru nor has the brains required to do this job efficiently, effectively, and perfectly. A casual was hired in at my office and lasted all of one day. Plenty of jobs in the post office for anyone willing to work!

Let me get this straight: you have a pastor trying to look cool and be relevant, telling the sheeple to stop looking cool and stop trying to be relevant?
Being relevant and conforming to the world are not the same thing. Matt wasn't trying to look cool ...he just wore some clothes that he liked. Haha.

The state was hit with unexpected snowfall this year. He took the surplus from the last year and issued a property tax refund. The surplus should’ve been kept for snow removal and the repair of roads. Whole interstates were destroyed this year because of the early heavy snow.

If you can’t question “leaders” and you can’t question god himself in a church, then your church is a cult. This is about every church in America. You may think it’s noble to call yourself a sinner, but theres nowhere in the bible a saint calling himself a sinner. There is however many instances telling you where sinners end up…hell. Also in a previous article a prominent atheist said he wouldn’t go to heaven even if Jesus let him in. This theme is throughout the new testament. The prodigal son, the oldest son stayed in “hell” even though the father wanted him to go to “heaven”. But alas, you are all republicans, but when it comes to church it’s like this. Sit Down, Shut UP, and Do what I tell you to do. And pay your tithe to me, who will then pocket most of it and spend the rest on the “church”. You all have created the perfect socialist utopia in the church. But as Glenn Beck has said, it’s fine to do that in the church. You people don’t make any sense!
Sorry podiums, read your blog, it is you that makes no sense. Christians all across the world are not like the likes you see in these mega churches. It's all fine and good to feel good in church, but it's another to not use that time to learn more about Christ and to enlighten the flock what the Word of God says about our daily lives. It's obvious you're not a Christian but there is still time for you to repent, turn from your sin and live a Godly life. There will come a time that you will no longer have the time to turn to Jesus. Please take heed!
"You may think it’s noble to call yourself a sinner, but theres nowhere in the bible a saint calling himself a sinner. "
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
My, but you are a fount of misinformation. You really need help in reading and interpreting the Bible.

Way to knock America Blaze! If you had only done a smidgen of research, you would know that this is how we in Wisconsin/Minnesota handle snow. Heck, in the dinky town where I live we have this setup.
Well, in parts further south (Richmond, Va area), they manage to clear the streets by pushing the mounds of snow to the side of the street, usually to my freshly cleared driveway. But then, before a higher up in the sheriff's department moved into my neighborhood, they didn't bother to clear the streets for several days. To be fair, big snows don't happen that often, but when they do, it gets ugly.
Patting someone on the back doesn't equal putting anyone else down. It may be a fluff piece, the equivalent of saying birds fly higher than cats, but it certainly wasn't knocking America.
Ditto Seward Alaska.
Another dinky burg with efficient snow removal, right into the deep blue sea.
Well, brown, sludgy, polluted, just the way we like it slough.
Viva global Warming!
yup, this is how it's done here in South Dakota as well.
Knocking America? It's an American-made Deere tractor.
This is the same technique used on airports all over the country, sans the dump truck convoy. The blowers will just throw it out into the grass abutting the taxiways, or if you are unlucky, they will throw the snow into the employee parking lot.
Maine also and most any large town that is prepared for snow some smaller towns use front end loaders instead of snow blowers
Canada is even better at suppression of free speech than they are at snow removal.

This is the perfect example of the prodigal son story. Everyone gets in, that’s new covenant. This guy proves that even if the door is wide open, he’ll refuse to enter. He’d rather bath in a lake of fire than be with a god like that. And there’s others who lived in filth their whole life and will repent and the father will hear nothing of it. He’s already forgiven you before you asked.

I deliver mail and see these ALL the time. What’s the big deal?

Few things from a real postal employee: The packages arrive in a sort facility and are dumped liked garbage onto a sort machine. The fall and tumble from that is more than what happened here. There’s a thing called a PO Box. You have to pay for it, so most people take the free option and put a dinky baby mailbox halfassed in front of their homes. A large rural box placed in front of the residence would’ve housed this package. It seems most of you like to bitch, but there is a hold option to hold your mail…something you can’t do with the other carriers. Let those who complain, get a POBOX. But you won’t will you? Oh, and $15 starting wage…I do believe that’s the proposed new minimum wage? Factory workers who stand in one spot all day make more than that. A rural carrier has to know your wife name, mistress name, your 4 kids with 4 different dads name, their boyfriends who move in and out, your dogs name and every little nitpick thing you want. Times that by 600 and you have a day in the life of a mail carrier.
Just checking...are you trying to justify this behavior? If so, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. Last I checked, nobody forced you or this mailman to choose postal work. If you can't do your job without whining like a child or damaging your customers' packages maybe you should quit.
Looks like we spotted another package tosser. :/
You must be smoking crack. Seriously dude? Do the job you get paid to do and shut the f up
Why should I get a PO box or have my mail held – I’m paying you to deliver it. Besides, if everybody got PO boxes or had their mail held, you’d be out of a job. Well maybe not, you might be a full timer
Are you telling me postal carriers make $15/hour?? No way. Postal carriers are very well paid. Attitudes like "podius" is the exact reason the USPS has gone broke.

I would change “is coming again” to has come, is here with us, with his kingdom in us, ruling and reigning here now. And yes, it’s all in the bible if you read it as a now thing. You can also read it as “someday”, but I prefer to read it as now.
Also BLAZE, why aren’t you giving the preterist view a look?

The real issue is hybrid christianity. True christianity looks nothing like judaism. Christians feel it necessary to add mosaic laws to pure christianity which results in some bad things happening. True christianity is believing by faith, loving everyone as Jesus loved us, and never ever judging anyone. If it looks even .001% like judaism, it’s not christianity.
What about the Eucharist? It looks a little like Passover.
John 7:24 'Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.'
Psalm 82:2 'How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked? Selah.'
1 Corinthians 2:15 'The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.'
Galatians 6:1 'Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.'
If we are to never ever judge, how does one restore a brother or sister who is caught in sin...?
Heh. The problem then is defining "true Christianity". If I don't agree with you, am I a "true Christian"? Remember, you can never, ever judge me. ;-)

lets do the math: 12 hour work day +1hr overrun +5-6hr total commute 7 days a week until further notice. You may get 4-5 hours of sleep, but you’ll be in pain and stressed. This is a singles game, but most that I know are hooked on drugs and broke. The time to get in was years ago. It’s like the stock market, get in low. These 20 somethings with the cushy high paying jobs will retire in 30 years. There won’t be openings for advancement. Same goes with the truck driving.

My bible says Christians are under a faith covenant. The Mosaic covenant and it’s 600+ rules and regulations were used to shut up faith until Christ came to liberate the world. My new testament is loaded with anti law talk, Paul ultimately loosing his life on “forsaking Moses(the law) forsaking Jews and forsaking the temple and all it stood for. In Revelation the Jews, their customs, and the temple were referred as “the synagog of satan”. Oh well, we young people are just sick of the religious bullish*^ we’ve been fed our whole life. The end of the age happened 2000 years ago. Christ returned way back then, the new heaven and earth is now. It’s the Christian majority that embrace Moses and that old covenant. They’ve ditched faith, and embrace works. They think a messiah is coming to finish the job. Well guess what?!? So are the freakin Jews and Muslims. How ’bout the old people actually read the bible, get ahold of what covenant they’re under, and decide that Jesus, Paul, and the rest of the new testament authors really believed the “end” was soon upon them. Soon means soon, not thousands of years later. Jesus actually told people that they would see Him return. Does this not bother anyone who supposedly reads their bibles?
Jesus fulfilled the Law of Moses! He didn't forsake or ignore it! We are free from the condemnation of Hell by our breaking the law because of Jesus perfect sinless life and propitiary atoning substitutionary death on the cross for us. We are not free to break the Laws of Moses because we are free from it's ultimate penalty.
Maybe that's what you were getting at, but in a text or letter it can get lost really quickly.
