"... there’s plenty of reasons the Iranians have to have a beef against us.”
Geraldo was just having a cow.
Let's see, we accidentally shot down a plane in 1988 so they deserve to have long range nuclear weapons.
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense... not!
Actually the Iranian do have a beef with us and I’m not taking the Iranian side. What Geraldo failed to mention was that the US engineered the overthrow of a democratically elected leader of Iran in 1953 in order to install a pro-western dictator – the Shah or Iran – in order to secure the flow of oil from there. Not only did the US overthrow the government they put a ruthless and dictatorial brutal person in power who ruled that country with an iron fist for decades. Learn some history would ya?
Again, I’m anything but a fan of the Iranian government although I imagine the population there wants nothing more than become Westernized and given more freedom than they have now.
But here’s what I ask: Can you, in a moment of Christian empathy imagine how someone in that country might feel given the US has already not that long ago overthrown their government and installed a brutal dictator and a country that has a portion of the population (like those here) who openly declare they desire that our government to bomb them into oblivion?
I realize it is kind of difficult to imagine how you’d feel about a country that has already overthrown yours once, and a country, or some part of it, that wants to turn your country into a glass sheet. But if you could I imagine you wouldn’t have fond feelings toward them.
Mod that isn't the way it happened and to use Wikipedia to bolster your argument is even more laughable. At best we were silent in that conflict. but there is no proof at all of us orchestrating that coup.

Alisyn, you used to be a journalist who had cogent thoughts. Since your move to the Clinton News Network, you have turned to the Dark Side. I am sure the Emperor is proud. . .

The last time I was in Memphis, I saw an article in the paper indicating the city is more than 70% black. . . No way I would take your bet!
Where’s the outrage by the white people of the city???

Gee, Dr. C, I looked over the list of GOP nominees for prez and didn’t see Mitch’s name. Likewise I don’t see Donald’s name on the list of Senate leadership. You and Brit got this bass ackwards. . .
They DO have it bass ackwards! He didn't insult TRUMP because Trump gave an OPINION. He DID insult McConnell of blocking bills and amendments that WE THE PEOPLE want voted on. And for being a backstabbing LIAR...which McConnell IS! In Obama's America telling the truth isn't hypocrisy...it's an act of courage (for some ungodly reason). And by the way... I don't remember or Brit coming down on McCain for calling Cruz a wackobird, or for calling us voters crazies and scumbags. Oh no...that's apparently not a problem. What CRAP! But nice to know that you and Brit conspired to use the same word to smear Cruz.
Forget it, pal. Voters are applauding Cruz! More, more, more of that, Mr. Cruz! Tell it like it is, baby! We are sick to death of this PC nonsense.

I am so very grateful for folks like Raptur. They fortify my testimony that men like Boyd K Packer are truly Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s amazing how the persecution against the LDS church mimics the persecution the Lord and His church received when He walked the earth. . .
I always get angry at first, but eventually I calm down and see if in the light you have just shined.
….2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. He duplicates everything our Lord does, except he can not die and resurrect himself to life. Angels in the bible can never die that is why our Lord created hell, originally intended only for the fallen angels, until man fell too.
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
By the way all apostles died out in the 1st century, and there have been apostles from God since that time,despite what man says.
There are no living apostles. There were guidelines for a person to become an apostle https://youtu.be/IrgbywmPCT4
There is a definite LDS protection squad that monitors TheBlaze and rolls out the no-holds barred defense. I'm not ANTI-LDS, however blind allegiance to protecting the faith is a bad idea. There are several questionable stances the church has made and it serves everyone best to study, understand and come to your own conclusion.
Given the choice of neighbors, in most cases I will take a LDS family. Out of all the mainstream religions they tend to have the best behaved kids, hardworking spouses, strong family ties and upstanding business practices. Not everyone is squeaky clean, but that transcends all religions.
I pray for my LDS friends and family, but I don't berate them with my faithful interpretation of the scriptures. I like Glenn and Pat, but we aren't in lock step and that is a healthy position.
I also pray for my Presbyterian, Catholic, Lutheran and atheist family and friends.

The church fell into a state of apostasy with the death of the last of Jesus’ apostles. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”. With regularity, congregations hire and fire pastors/ministers for this very reason. The denominations change “doctrine” to suit their particular beliefs. There is little “unity of the faith” even within the thousands of sects of Christendom.
I agree. If Christianity as a whole is so wonderful, why do they keep separating from each other, creating new leaders to follow, creating new sects and churches, each different from the other but all with the teachings of same book? I have God, but no "religion'. Too many denominations, too many interpretations of the same stories, too many "my way is right, your way is wrong" even within the same religion. How can we be unified when we can't even be unified within the same religion?
no total apostasy.
Think this through. When was the NT canon determined?
If the Catholic Bishops thought this "apostasy" (which by the way does not say TOTAL apostasy) was referring to them would they have included that or eliminated that from consideration for the canon?
If the Catholic Bishops were already IN apostasy then why do you trust the NT canon for one second?
There's no evidence of any total apostasy before or after the NT was determined. Pure fiction.
You are correct with every sentence that follows that first one, though. We should all be praying for unity like Jesus did.
yeah right, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it . Not buying what joseph smith has to sell, a prophet? are you kidding me ? whatever happened to that temple he prophesied would be built in missouri in his lifetime? The Adam is God doctrine straight from the devil , the book of abraham fraud. How he told 15 year old girls that if they did not marry him secretly (keep it from emma) that an angel with a sword would kill him. He used this line several times on innocent LDS children .

It’s sad and such an oxymoron that a “Lieutenant” of MLK would have such a visceral hatred for anyone.
She and most blacks completely missed the point of what MLK was going for. Equal opportunity..........not social justice or payback, just a fair shake

Chloe, you are EXACTLY right!!! i am LDS and those of my friends who are Dims are quick to say how “charitable” the Dim party is. But that’s not charity. As you said, it is forcibly taking money from the worker and giving it to the one who won’t work.
I haven’t read all of the threads here. But one of many things left unsaid it the Reid told demonstrable lies about Mitt, a devout Mormon who follows the counsel of church leaders and lives an exemplary life. When Dingy Harry made his comments about Mitt not paying income taxes for 20 years, Harry knew it was a lie.
This bishop should not have commented as he did, but, hey, what can they do but release him from his calling!!

I find it humorous that The Holy Bible is considered the be all end all for Christians. Do “Christians” realize there was no Bible during the time of Christ? The Bible is an invention of men. Granted, they compiled the writings of the early Apostles, but there is little question that they were uninspired. Their decisions were based on promoting their own ideas of Christianity.
A few of the writing of prophets and apostles not included the the Old and New Testaments:
. . . the book of the covenant: Ex. 24:7; book of the wars of the Lord: Num. 21:14; book of Jasher: Josh. 10:13 . ( 2 Sam. 1:18 . ); book of the acts of Solomon: 1 Kgs. 11:41; book of Samuel the seer: 1 Chr. 29:29; book of Nathan the prophet: 2 Chr. 9:29book of Jehu: 2 Chr. 20:34 .
written among the sayings of the seers: 2 Chr. 33:19 .
spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene: Matt. 2:23 .
I wrote unto you in an epistle: 1 Cor. 5:9 (Paul’s FIRST letter to the Corinthians); as I wrote afore in few words: Eph. 3:3 (Another letter of Paul to the Ephesians); read the epistle from Laodicea: Col. 4:16 ; when I gave all diligence to write unto you: Jude 1:3 (looks like Jude wrote another epistle.)
By proclamation, when these missing writings are found the MUST be rejected by the “Christian” world. The countless number of “Christian” denominations is staggering showing without reservation that there is no :unity of the faith found in Eph 4:11-13.
You forgot about the story of Thecla. There's a lot of scripture missing that was originally part of the Bible but was removed by the Catholic Church when they created the King James version.
@US Navy Vet: What you just wrote is so full of error and distortion that it's hard to know where to begin. The Catholic Church did NOT suppress the distribution of Bibles. It did suppress distribution of incorrectly translated Bibles.
You also don't know the faith that you abandoned, obviously, which is a problem I regularly encounter. The biggest anti-Catholics are the ex-Catholics who embrace error and were very poorly catechized as you clearly are.
You speak with such authority but your post show a total lack of knowledge about Christianity. Or maybe I should say you are trying to understand a puzzle with only a few of the pieces. If you take those pieces away from the puzzle they don't make any sense. If you have any interest I recommend twft.com m.p.3 archive library. Chuck Smith goes through the entire Bible. If you listen to some you might begin to understand real Christianity.

I would ask anyone, what does belief or disbelief in the doctrine of the “rapture” have to do with salvation?? According to prevailing Christian dogma, a profession of faith in our Lord and Savior is all that is required for salvation. This is much ado about nothing. . .
Nobody said it had to do with salvation. But studying and discussing scripture is a good thing.
Those who are banking on being whisked away before the persecution starts are in for a HUGELY painful wake up call. They may even fall away from the faith; see Matthew 24:8-10. I'd much rather be Post-trib and wrong than Pre-trib and wrong.
