what do you think was the foundation of the constitution and the bill of rights?
if you do not understand the nature of man along with the nature of God and that relationship
you will never fully understand where your freedoms come from.
a little hint: the ten commandments are not restrictions they are the foundation for a free people.
the word of God tells this story over and over and over and over.

first off you have to seperate DOCTRINE from DENOMINATION.
our laws were based on DOCTRINE (Judeo-Christian, like it or not)
the government cannot force DENOMINATION ( the above doctrine allows you to
worship as freely as you choose) the founders knew this.

i live in the okc area and i was raised in moore, this area is known for tornados, moore that is and oklahoma for that matter. there was a trailer park just south of where this one hit that was hit 2 years in a row back in the 70′s, it’s no longer there. my old neighborhood was hit this time just north of where i lived by 3 blocks right off of i-35.
i was in one about 2 years ago, well i was trying to drive away from it but it turned and passed right in front of me, picked my truck up about 3 foot and set is sideways on the road. we had one that moved through edmond that is north of the okc area just yesterday. the may 3rd tornado several years back also in moore was devestating but pales in comparison to this one.
please pray for the people of oklahoma right now. we are a resilient people and will bounce back.
Thanks !! You guys have been in our prayers since yesterday's tornado.
Hang in there, buddy.
Praying for them all.
@ THE WIREWORKER, Our prayers are with you all, may God keep you all in his watch care, i live in tornado ally as well, storms headed our way. Jesus help us all.
I was one of the responders from D/FW back in '99.
From what I'm seeing on TWC & FNC this is about as bad.
I now live up in WY. The weather is one of the reasons.
Prayers your way.
Homes and lives gone in seconds. I am praying for for all of you guys.
Amazing story of the woman in the tub with the kids. How do you hold a mattress over you without flying away? It's awesome.
I can't even imagine what people are going through right now. Night is falling and everything they had is gone...not even a blanket or a change of clothes...nothing. It's heartbreaking.

i don’t see where this is controversial. God can draw a straight line with a crooked stick.
as a christian i believe there are coded messages in the bible, there are the deeper things of God. that does not change the central message of John 3:16.
and the bible is bracketed as a whole, (God walked with man,[life]) (the fall of man[death]) (God restores man back to Him [life]) so there are patterns in the bible, even within the hebrew language
itself. it is the greatest literary work of all time & eternity.
(the torah) is a great example: genesis, exodus, leviticus, numbers and deuteronomy with the 2 former and the 2 latter pointing to the central theme leviticus (the law).
people read their horoscopes, but if they knew the truth of the mazzeroth they would find that it is God’s plan written in the stars.
so there are the deeper things of God that one has to study… keyword (study).
the problem people have is when they take the numerology of the Word of God and leave
out the actual words. i think that is where the kaballah came from.
so whether you call them patterns or codes there are the deeper things of God,
we look through a glass darkly and cannot fathom the Ways of God, His Grace & Mercy is not limited
to our finite minds.

i agree with what the man said, but with that being said it would take a lengthy sermon or bible study to get the point across. so maybe he didn’t explain himself well enough or we weren’t given the totality
of what he actually said.
if one reads the bible they will find a loving God, but He is a jealous God, not jealous as we humans are but jealous because He first loved us and wants what’s best for us and that is relationship & reconciliation to back to Him.
if you read the bible, when the Israelites disobeyed God (after the covenant, “I will be your God and you will be my people”) they were allowed to be put in bondage and captivity by their own actions of not returning to him.
there is a verse in the new testament which states that [paraphrasing] it would be better for you on that day if you had not known me than if you had known me then let me go. america has known God, our country was founded upon His principles and precepts, i believe our covenant with God comes in the form of our constitution and bill of rights. and as a side note: many non-believers live under a covenential blessing that they themselves don’t comprehend.
so yes when we kick God out of our public square, He is a gentleman, he leaves and so does His hand of protection. the book of revelation shows this quite well, the plaques are so that people will return to back to Him but instead man will shake his fist at God.
remember we look throught the veil of time and not eternity, His ways are

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time of difficulty.
I have just recently lost a best friend of 17 years back in oct, Blick was his name. he was a louisiana
catahoula leopard dog. i had to have his eyes removed due to glaucoma about 10 years ago, the vet at the time seemed like he was giving me the option of putting him to sleep instead of me taking care of a blind dog. there wasn’t even a hint of me giving up on Blick he was family. it had not even crossed my mind. well to say the least i think i learned more from him than he did from me, God’s grace works through his natural wonders and blick was His gift for me.
Blick came down with a liver and kidney disease about 5 months ago losing a bunch of weight, i struggled with the decision to put him down, because he usually told me how he felt through his vocals and actions. My wife and i had discussed this decision the last few weeks of his life as we were taking trips to the vet. I kept telling her that he had not told me what to do and on his last day he did as he laid in my arms, he was ready to go, it was so hard seeing this once proud dog become
a shell of himself but i knew when he was ready he would tell me. it was peaceful and i can still hear the last sound he made as he gave his last breath and his jowls rumbled with relief. i think of him every day and give thanks to God for this gift of grace he let me be a steward of.
so you are saying that there is not an Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent God so therefore
you must be omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent to know that in the whole of the universe you are
the one who is right?
God created you, gave you an user manual, let you have free will to deny him, provided a way for you to spend an eternity with him because he loves you, yeah your right…who would want that…pffft
what’s your eternal plan of salvation for mankind to be renewed back to you?

i watched the show and i agree with you, there is no way that a “so called” artist would have a collection of paintings and not know what the symbolism meant especially in a political/religious motif.
he took all of the talking points and dogma of the left and put them on canvas. he knew exactly what he was doing and when confronted with it he started backpeddling.
how does george zimmerman not getting immediately arrested equate to him being in the kkk?
how does a crown of thorns not be directly connected to Jesus Christ?
gimme a break!
great job Glenn…

let’s just get this straight.
the left complains about the right being corrupt
the right complains about the left being corrupt
the tea party is a referendum on both parties “being corrupt”
limiting said corrupt government so corruption is limited.
my prayers go out for the woods family…thanks for their service to this still great nation!
thanks to all who have ever served for freedoms cause and their families
Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
i say “CREATION”
you say “EVOLUTION”
i say “SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST”
you say ” BE MORE CHRISTLIKE”

By arguing for a belief in or knowledge of morality without providing a justification for morality, atheists confuse moral epistemology (moral knowledge) with moral ontology (foundational existence of morality). The real question at hand is this: What grounds the atheists’ moral positions? What makes their moral views more than mere hunches, inklings, or subjective opinions?
Actually, from the atheists' point of view, that is not the most important questions. An atheist firsts asks "what is the truth?".
While I do believe your morals are firmly anchored, they are anchored in an illusion.

few homosexual relationships achieve the longevity common in heterosexual marriages.
Sexual relationships are primarily for pleasure rather than procreation.
homosexual relationships display a fundamental incapacity for the faithfulness and commitment that is axiomatic to the institution of marriage.
Only a small minority of gay and lesbian households have children. Only a small percentage of partnered homosexual households actually have children. Those that do may include biological children conceived in a previous heterosexual relationship. The evidence does not support the claim that significant numbers of homosexuals desire to provide a stable home for children.
evidence indicates that homosexual and lesbian relationships are at far greater risk for contracting life-threatening disease compared with married couples. .
Homosexual and lesbian relationships experience a far greater rate of mental health problems and suicide attempts compared to married couples and non-homosexual peers.
homosexual and lesbian relationships have far greater incidence of domestic partner violence than opposite-sex relationships including cohabitation or marriage.

God’s will is not that we live in conflict, it’s called the fall of man (sin)
God has a perfect and permissive will but His will be done.
the sins of man have always been paid for by the shedding of blood (life is in the blood, sin=death) whether it be mans inhumanity to man or the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. the former leads
to death the latter leads to life.
Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

“When the Gentiles, who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requires…they show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own conscience also bears witness; and their conflicting thoughts will accuse or perhaps excuse them” (Rom. 2:14–15 NRSV).
When a person, whether Christian, Muslim, Hindu, atheist, or what have you, is functioning properly and not repressing or ignoring his conscience—especially while dwelling in a cultural milieu that reflects the moral truths of God—he basically knows right from wrong, good from evil. However, to know or believe that something is right or wrong is very different from justifying that thing’s being right or wrong. For example, one could know that flipping the light switch in the kitchen causes the light to go on and have absolutely no understanding of why this occurs or justification for how it really does so. By arguing for a belief in or knowledge of morality without providing a justification for morality, atheists confuse moral epistemology (moral knowledge) with moral ontology (foundational existence of morality). The real question at hand is this: What grounds the atheists’ moral positions? What makes their moral views more than mere hunches, inklings, or subjective opinions?
