Typical persecution complex nonsense that a lot of my fellow believers are currently suffering from… we don’t even know what persecution is. And don’t even try to say something ignorant like, “just wait… it’s coming”… because that’s just more baseless nonsense.
The ignorant one is your partial preterist lies, aka an anti-christ in the Bible.
'The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.'
'And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.'

Yeah, a few left wing conspiracy nut jobs said the same thing about George W. Bush, as did a handful of right wing idiots about Clinton. Problem is, this time the nut jobs seem to be the majority. You guys never cease to amaze me with your creativity.

Zipit, your willingness to be blind and ignorant is astounding. That comment is ridiculous. There have been 64 straight months of private sector net job increases… the longest streak since the 1930′s. Only in the parallel universe you guys live in does that constitute a horrible economy. I understand the frustration of Obama doing things with which we disagree, but disengage the damn doomsday filter through which you guys see everything.

I’m not the one who consistently confuses the unemployment rate with the new jobless claims rate. The new jobless claims on average (even with fluctuations to the upside or downside) are averaging historical lows right now, which indicates strong labor conditions. As for the unemployment rate, even if we counted the unemployed like we did pre-1994 (when the calculation was changed), it would not reflect any worse a number than at any time since 1994. And to explain the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970′s, it is quite consistent with an aging population… the baby boomers reach age 65 at a rate of 10,000 per day… over 3.5 million per year.

In other news, new jobless claims came in at a 42 year low, but nobody here will see it on this site. If it had been a 42 year high, it would likely be one of the top headlines.
What difference does it make! Sorry, I'm sounding like Hillary. Seriously, I could care less about the percentage of people collecting unemployment checks. You should be quoting the percentage of people that actually are working for a living. That would be a very scary number I'm sure.
Yeah. Thanks A LOT, Obama!
Quite to the contrary libtard, the manipulated jobless rates, adjusted every month after they are released are outright lies..and you with all four little tiny brain cells buy into that nonsense!

RNM - Pls provide your source url. I'd like to read it. Thx.
Jobless claims are a distraction away from a real understanding of economics, which I assume you are connecting one to the other, RNM. Simply put, it's not worth a headline at this point. Keep your eye on the stock market and interest rates though. It may be newsworthy in the near future.
Hmmm! Just cause there is no one left to not look, no one left to lay off, and no jobs to not look for! Does that clear things up for ya!

Think_Twice2… it is a persecution complex, which many American Christians suffer from today.

So, then there’s no such thing as a lying Christian… or a thieving Christian… or a fornicating Christian… or a lustful Christian… or a shacking up Christian… or a hateful Christian… or… or… or…
 July 16, 2015 at 10:21am
kickagrandma, I take it you would say the same of liars, thieves, cheaters, gluttons, fornicators, etc… I mean, after all, a Christian never sins, right? Wait…
Kick is a self admitted fornicator. She has posted about being married more than once. So basically as long as she stays in this second or third or fourth marriage she is slapping god in the face.
But she is a good christian. Just look at her ovomit language etc.
I wonder about a lot of comments like these. Do they come from intentional, malevolent ignorance or are they actual attempts at dialogue?
The difference is recognition. We know we sin. We know it is wrong. We repent and seek forgiveness. and make it right, if possible. What we don't do is assume our habitual sin is "normal" and "acceptable" because the harm in it isn't as clear as some other sins.
If you think your sin isn't sin, then you are not following Christ's example. Recognize your sin and the harm it does and humbly seek forgiveness.
Canadian - being married more than once is not fornication. Fornication is having sex when you aren't married. Adultery is having sex outside of your marriage bed. There is room for divorce in the bible under certain circumstances, and you don't really know what her circumstances are.

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. …”
There hasn’t been a time in history when this has not been the case, except that in the last days (of the Old Covenant) it was far worse per capita than it is today. Paul was speaking to people that were about to experience the very individuals he was describing… not a culture in an ambiguous period of time 2000+ years in the future. Jesus brought the New Covenant in His resurrection, and just as He said it would, the Old Covenant system was destroyed with the temple and Jerusalem within a generation in 70 A.D. Hebrews 8:13 put it beautifully… “By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will SOON disappear.” And it did disappear when the Roman Empire utterly destroyed Jerusalem, the temple, slaughtered over 1 million Jews in a short period of time, destroyed all their genealogical records, etc.
The folks threatening the bakers are equally as ignorant as the ones who threatened the lesbian couple.

First of all, no, the caliphate Glenn “predicted” never happened. ISIS’s sporadic regional strongholds are not even close to resembling what Glenn’s caliphate prediction looked like. Just because a few bits out of thousands of bits of BS flung at a wall happen to stick does not mean much. ISIS should be and will be destroyed, I have no doubts about that… it has not and will not become a widespread caliphate the likes of which Glenn called for in 2011. Same as how his dozens of calls for WWIII in dozens of different scenarios with dozens of different flashpoints and enemies have yet to come to fruition over the years.
Secondly, we are being a bit quick to judgment on this deal simply because of who supports it… everything is pretty much unknown at this point as to how this will play out, so let’s stop pretending we know. The fact remains that over 30%… that is ONE-THIRD… of all U.S. foreign aid continues to flow to Israel. The idea that we are turning a blind eye to Israel’s enemies and thus turning our back on Israel itself is complete and utter nonsense. Makes for good drama on talk radio (“millions will cry out in despair and contempt”) and will likely get spidey senses tingling for the many Christians who believe in a false view of end times, but it’s still nonsense.
As to your first point: I would add the word "yet".
RNM, your assessment of ISIS and Glenn's prediction of a caliphate is spot on.
But I do think a war is coming for economic reasons.
@ RNM - you say "...ISIS should be and will be destroyed, I have no doubts about that.."
Destroyed? When? And by whom? You have no doubts, but Obama has no plans, and has said as much. Quite the contrary, Obama has sung the praises of Islam around the world, and continues to destabilize ME nations. Giving BILLIONS to known terrorist nations like Iran, and paving a road to their nuclear armament - I do not share your optimistic evaluation of the situation. Meanwhile thousands upon thousands are slaughtered, while Obama plays golf. Just a few weeks ago, 150 women committed suicide just to escape the brutal systematic raping - they were ISIS sex slaves. Their dead bodies were fed to dogs to discourage the other sex slaves from doing likewise.
Initial readings of the deal also indicate that Iran will be given the right to veto so-called “anywhere, anytime” inspections of Iranian nuclear sites. This concession has caused concern that Tehran will be able to continue obfuscating its nuclear work and potentially continue in secret along the pathway to a bomb.
It's a great deal for Iran with this one provision because they'll be able to conduct their nuclear weapons program undetected.
Mr. Beck truly does love history because his expected hysterical reaction mimics the reaction conservatives had (verbatim) to the I988 INF Treaty between the U.S. and USSR.

This is rich, coming from the network that was built on a foundation of exploitation and sensationalism.
Aaaaannnnnnnd THIS is what happens when you have a guy who listens to politicians and pundits relentlessly beat a drum 24/7 for 7+ years that tells him his President is an anti-American commie and that his government is always looking for ways to get him.
Huh? His beef is with a bank. What the hell are you talking about?
That made no sense and has no application here. Nice try. Please come back when you have some game. You have shown yourself to be amateur hour every time you post. You are out of your league here.
Back to vox or media matters. They get everything wrong so you will fit right in. Dumbass.

Baking a cake for a customer, and providing the “morning after” pill to employees are two very VERY different things. Baking a cake is not actively participating in the act a religious person opposes… providing that pill is.

Perhaps there’s a FEMA interment camp within the walls and beneath the Hoover Dam where all dissidents to Jade Helm will be placed. Either that or, like every other completely benign event that raises eyebrows around here, there is nothing to it… lower your brows.
Only article three doesn't give the Supreme Court the right to declare a law unconstitutional.
Read It really carefully.
Hey man, hillary said obama wasn't born here and I believe her. She is a honest as they come. No reason to doubt her on this one.

Typical knee-jerk reaction that has become all too commonplace among my fellow Christians recently… kinda like screaming persecution in response to the gay marriage ruling before having any evidence to back it up and before a single scenario they’re predicting has even remotely occurred.
