Is everyone oblivious to the fact that Ferrell has done serious roles in serious dramas before? Typical knee-jerk reaction based on minimal information. Remember what happens when you assume.

The obsession with the futurist eschatological view instead of coming to the realization that the “end times” that Paul talked about happening SOON and John talked about happening SOON actually did happen SOON… in 70 AD. The kingdom of God has been advancing ever since… as things progressively have improved. Instantaneous and sensationalist media doesn’t allow you to believe that, but that’s another argument for another time.

Poor choice of words on my part maybe… by forceful, I am not necessarily talking about evangelizing… the forceful part is stepping into the authority God has given us and being His hands and feet. We are too busy tying up our resources in building multi-million dollar temples.

In my opinion, the American church is in decline because we have spent the last 40-50 years or so buried in our futurist end times nonsense that offers no hope to the unchurched, instead of advancing the kingdom of God in a positive, forceful manner like it is moving elsewhere on the globe.
"Futurist end times nonsense"? Really? You want to call eschatology, which is more than a quarter of the Bible's content, nonsense? The FEAR of eschatology and the refusal to study and teach it is part of why the church has no power. They refuse to deal with the gift God has given us of understanding His plan and not losing hope while things are spiraling irreversibly out of control, as He said they would. It is a bit heretical to say that these God given 100% accurate prophesies (fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled) are nonsense. They point directly to the existence of God. It is the main reason He gave them to us. They help us to look up and and hang on for the wild ride that is coming! They show us He is in total and complete control and to never take our eyes off of Him. They tell us of the awesome things to come when He completes the work He started, we screwed up, and He redeemed. I will grant you some people have gone a bit goofy, but that is because they stray from the truth and put themselves into the equation. Actually, eschatology offers incredible hope to the unchurched. It shows them there is something more than this world that is inescapably trapped in entropy. It gives them an antidote to there fear and a real hope they will NEVER be able to find anywhere else. I find Christians who study and educate themselves in true Bible prophecy are usually on fire for Christ. The decline comes from compromising Biblical truths with what the world says is acceptable.
What subject and message did Jesus preach and teach more than all others combined? If you asked this simple question to most church going people today (or those who call themselves "Christians") you would get answers such as "love," and "faith." Both answers are wrong.
The overwhelming choice of subject and message for Jesus was "The Kingdom of God/Christ." That message as Jesus preached it is a great subject with a hugely positive ending. A true message on the Kingdom of God/Christ does not present any picture of God coming for his chosen ones as they escape out the back door and satan beats in the front door. It is not a message of "doom and gloom" but a great message of victory now and forever more. After all, in Daniel's vision he saw a Kingdom rise up that was not built with hands of man, and it destroyed or consumed all the other kingdoms.

This whole argument is nonsense. First of all, transgender folks have been using the bathroom they’re most comfortable with for a long time without a policy, and there is no history of a rash of assaults on anyone while they’re in there. As for these alleged droves of perverts who are going to all of a sudden turn out and hide behind a law or policy to go to the bathrooms with our daughters with evil intentions… what exactly was stopping them before? Truth is, this is the same fear-mongering BS that went around about SCOTUS recognizing gay marriages. The church was supposed to be embroiled in persecution via being forced to marry gay couples or face endless lawsuits. Well… not a single church in the US has been forced to marry anyone at this point… just as sane, rational people expected. I trust this will all be another of many “much ado about nothing” moments about which we find ourselves paranoid.
if a boy dresses like a girl and gets away with it no one knows, but if this unleashes perverts to go in then smack them in the pussy
Your well reasoned post will sadly be dismissed by the regular low info readers of this site...in their paranoid minds " The Sky Is Falling!" Is a daily occurrence.
" Lock and load" is their motto, not, " Stop and Think "

The man was legitimately searching for God. About a year ao, he even covered Christian artist Nichole Nordeman’s song “What If”, which is a song about the struggle between belief and doubt in who Jesus was. Check it out… http://en.musicplayon.com/play?v=539574

For those who can’t get their head out of their Obama-bashing arse and come up for air now and then to focus on something other than obsessive, compulsive, borderline schizophrenic, anti-Obama ranting… why say anything?
I guess it’s because we see clearly where obamas loyalties lie. After all, he’s a fictional character created by the left.

Donald Trump: “Andrew Jackson had a great history, and I think it’s very rough when you take somebody off the bill.”
Andrew Jackson (speaking of Native Americans just before forcing them from their homes and driving them out West): “Established in the midst of another and a superior race, and without appreciating the causes of their inferiority or seeking to control them, they must necessarily yield to the force of circumstances and ere long disappear.”
Of course Trump considers that “a great history.” Look out Mexicans and Muslims… there’s a precedence.
Jackson was a prototypical Dem. Byrd and Cankles would agree.
And KKK Byrd was Cankle's mentor, if you take the bitch at her word.
Digress into the NRA founding and your highly vaunted Sanger Award-
There is no president that you could not find plenty of material to smear them with. It's a stupid game that you play.

Jackson would be the hero to the present day Tea Party guy. He vetoed every spending bill that hit his desk, and killed the national bank. True, he paid off the national debt, but he did so by selling off land in the west during a big real estate bubble. When the bubble burst, he made it a requirement that land sale transactions be made in physical gold or silver. The paid off national debt lasted a year and was followed by the longest economic depression in our history. Good times…

As a Christian myself, I find the plot of the movie a slap in the face to the many Christians around the world who actually face real, tangible persecution (hint: none of them are in the U.S.). My having to share the public square with people of all walks of life does not equate to me being persecuted. Being a for-profit business owner who gets hit with an anti-discrimination lawsuit because you violated anti-discrimination laws is not persecution. I work with youth in the public school system, and you’re still allowed to bring your bible and talk about Jesus in schools, despite the preconceived notion that I’ve heard for at least 20 years to the contrary. It’s time to drop the persecution complex… seriously.
One doesn't need to be butchered by Islamic blades for a government persecution to still be wrong. Freedom means that one has to tolerate views or opinions that might not mirror their own, including religious ones.
While it's certainly not on the level of what Christians deal with world wide it is persecution. I know a school teacher in the Knox county (Knoxville Tennessee) that came close to losing her job for sharing her Christian faith. This was when asked btw she was not promoting it. I once worked for a company where I was told outright I couldn't have anything on my desk that spoke of Christ. That same company promotes lgbt agendas. I could have sued but decided to leave instead. Make no mistake this issue isn't going anywhere and when the tick up of hate targeting Christians look for it to increase.
As a teacher of Bible as History/Literature for 16 years in public schools that saw administrators censored for having posters in their personal space, myself being told that I had to teach as an English Lit teacher and not follow the literature of the Bible itself because the ACLU, People for the American Way and Freedom From Religion crowds say that the Old Testament is not a historical document in any part, fellow teachers were told to remove their Bibles from their desks, my students were told not to bring their textbooks- the Bible! to other classes- I had to straighten that out almost every year. We have had Bible survey courses in our state since the late '40's- and yet people have not got it right yet. When the Supreme Court said in 1963 that the administration/teachers could not lead/call on students to pray- they said that the Bible should be taught as a history/literature course because so much of our culture is founded on it. Also, if a student raises their hand and asks permission to pray aloud- the teacher must decide WHEN not yes or no! It is the students constitutional right to pray! But many are denying that right out of fear of the above orgs- ACLU, PFAW, FFR and what they have been taught in college. Illegally!
I was fired from a job at a public school just two weeks ago, without being given a real reason, and I feel it is because the person under whom I worked made up stories about me being "intolerant". I was told about three months ago that, based on the lies this person was telling about me, I should consider looking for another job, because "people like me" were not welcome there. I have to say, I firmly believe EVERYONE should be treated with respect, consideration, kindness and love, and I live that out every day; but the people in that school did not agree. They did not think I deserved that...

As of December, we had performed about 8,500 airstrikes, dropped around 28,000 bombs and killed roughly 20,000 ISIS fighters. We need to drop this false BS narrative that there’s no will or passion to defeat ISIS.

You guys are right on cue as always… making the rest of us Republicans look like far right wing idiots. Guess what? Reagan posed for pics embracing Gorbachev in front of the old hammer and sickle on several occasions. Any of you going to label Reagan a commie? Truth is, had he lived in a different time (today), you guys would have labeled him a liberal hack and he wouldn’t stand a chance in this political environment… sad.
Reagan destroyed the Iron Curtain and posed with Gorby as a gesture of friendship through strength. Gorby and Reagan deeply respected one another, but it wasn't the same. Gorby knew the reality of the west, what his nation kept from the people. He knew they were defeated and knew that through a managed decline they could modernize and limited freedoms could return the Russian motherland to greatness.
Obama is trying to be a statesman, but the problem is you have to have the state on the ropes. Cuba is hardly on the ropes. Some could make a sound argument that the relaxation of sanctions upon Cuban, and Iran, have bolstered an ailing regime and brought new life to despotic authoritarianism.
As he was bringing gorbachev to his knees, Reagan was not on his knees.....
you are correct in part. Reagan too was thought to be a political hack except he proved everybody wrong. obama too was thought to be a political hack and communist sympathizer, and proved everybody right.
Reagan (and GH Bush) had no problem posing in front of less-respectable comunist's portraits. (Btw, both killed millions more than Che ever did.)
Reagan is more to the right than about 90% of the republican party today, of course so is JFK who would be called a right wing nut by the current democrat party.
[-40] March 20, 2016 at 1:33pm
Kasich to me is the least crazy of the bunch, and I think he’s trying to pull the party back to where Reagan governed from… I say good for him. The government works best when it actually works at all, and I, for one, am sick of the extreme partisan BS on both sides.
He is sane, that is why everyone hates him. Republicans don't do sane.
he cannot beat Trump nor Cruz. He is a back stabbing GOP establishment guy.
So you are in favor of amnesty? Ask Reagan how that worked.....
Kasich is a delusional selfish person. I truly pity his kids as much as I pity Obama's kids because it is unlikely that they will be raised in a reality based environment.
Who's this guy and when did he get out of the pen?
Both political parties have moved left since the 80's. The democrats have gone radical extreme insane left while the republicans are about where the democrats of the 90's were. If you could drag Bill Clinton of the 90's forward in time he would think the left of today was way to radical. If you could drag JFK forward he wouldn't even be a democrat, they would consider him far to right wing.

“The Republic is at stake.”
Yeah, just like it was last election, and the one before that, and the one before that, and…
Enough with this everyday is one day from doomsday BS, Glenn. It’s because of the incessant fear-mongering people like you have engaged in over the past 7-8 years that we are in this screwed up election scenario to begin with. Like it or not, the anger you and others have incited over the past decade produced the Frankenstein that is Trump.
What are you going to do when he is right? This election has been rigged by the establishment guy Kasich. Because of him neither will get the nomination and this will go to a brokered convention. At that time we get neither Trump nor Cruz. That will take the wind out of your bag of wind critics! THEN what will you do?
The Republic is in more danger than it has been in since it's inception. We are in trouble boys, and all you can do is criticize Beck and bicker about "your man" being better than the other guy. Doesn't much matter when they both go down in flames.
Petty nonsense that won't mean anything once you've lost the country!

This is proof that American Christianity has become completely biblically illiterate and so easily pandered to by anyone… what a bunch of gullible rubes we’ve become!
RNM gets it . . . . . American Christians began to fall-away from doing the "work of the ministry", after WWII, and now we have whole churches that are nothing more than Sunday morning social clubs, under the false pretense of "worshipping God."

He also said that some of them would not taste death before all these things were to happen… as in the disciples in his presence. The headline eschatology we’ve been living with the past 50-60 years is pure nonsense. Look at historical recordings against the timelines of biblical prophecy and it’s easy to see 70AD was the climactic destruction Jesus was talking about.
