    I think we’re supposed to solve the math problem as a community, taking into account age, race, sex, sex preference, religion, and income. And to level the playing field, the higher income brackets need to work on solving the math problem for a longer period of time. Minorities can go to recess.

    Though a bit satirical, my point is about the hair-splitting, hyper-legalism of today’s culture.

    But it is true: If it is not of God, there is only one option left.

    “This situation is very nuanced.”

    How does that go again? The Devil is in the details? Said another, Satan loves legalism. So do liberals. Coincidence?

    Justice = getting punishment you deserve
    Mercy = not getting punishment you deserve
    Grace = getting blessings you don’t deserve

    So when did we permit “justices of the peace” to extend beyond simply justice? Oh wait, I forgot about government handouts. We’re all the way to government grace.

    Government = God

    Logic does not apply here. Now that a law or “ordinance” has been stretched beyond its constitutional limit, the government can hide behind that law and escape resposibility for being irrational and illegal.

    Same old game…change the rules, then hide behind legalism. “Hey, it’s not me doing this to you..see that law there? Yeah, sorry, I can’t help you until someone challenges its legality.”

    I thought government was supposed to be the brightest among us!? Mental midgets, they are.

    Matt Walsh’s blog post yesterday shreds this position.

    Do truth or facts ever matter to you?

    Or just the paycheck for trolling? Man, you must live a divided, sociopathic life.

    blink,
    I don’t expect you to understand, but thank you for taking your point to the only safehouse atheists can hide behind: legalism. “Hey, if we can get a law passed that supports our belief, we no longer have to debate our opinion, we can hide behind our shiny new law!!!”

    Congrats blink. You win.

    In this life. Good day.

    jquent,
    unbeknownst to you, you are mixing the Bible with religion (Catholicism, to be precise). They are separate.
    The bible teaches us if your enemy asks for your cloak, give him your tunic as well. I hope I don’t need to translate what that really means.
    You have a clear fear of being made to look foolish. That fear probably stems from that very thing happening to you at some time in your life, or seeing it done to someone else. That fear is your god. You will not let it go. You will not allow the vulnerability required for God to work. That is your free will in action.
    God does not promise us things will go well for us. He promises the opposite (John 16:33). So if this woman’s “conversion” really is fake, so what? Is she fooling us? Yes. Is she fooling God? No. We don’t need to judge her heart. We can, however, judge her actions for the safety of the body of Christ. If she is not genuine, that will show in time – it *always* does, and she must be marginalized from the Body until she seeks to restore. And Christians will see through it. She’s not being given authority (so far as I can tell), so she can let the fruits of the Spirit shine through. For now, she needs love and acceptance.
    For you, try letting go of your fear. If you can’t, then ask God for help. He will.

    JQuentin,
    Facts and logic dictate the truth of God and His Son for me.
    I see you prefer hate and anger.

    In your morally relative world, it probaby suits you just fine!

  • [1] October 22, 2014 at 1:36pm

    Amen.

  • [2] October 22, 2014 at 1:20pm

    jj,
    I did not say anyone needs to follow my religion. I am clearly pointing to God. Not religion, not man-made rules. God alone.
    Also, each person’s purpose becomes relative with your thinking. Who determines which purpose is worthwhile? One perons’s pursuit of the cure for cancer against another person’s pursuit for pornography cannot be ranked without moral authority. Everything becomes of relative importance without moral authority. THerefore morals must: 1) exist in the first place, 2) resonante with our reasoning abilities and 3) come outside of humanity, space, and time to have authority.
    It did. Thousands of years ago. And was proclaimed to be true by a Man 2000 years ago. Jesus said He came here to “proclaim the truth.” So truth is quite important. It is not relative and does not reside inside each person individually. It is a universally acknowledged.

    And therefore, God is.

    blink,

    Hating someone you do not know and have never met, except only through a surface interaction such as this, is a…curious reaction.

    I can assure you, you do not hate me. I have become an object for you to focus your hate on, yes, but it is not personal. It is your natural, God-created reaction to His absence. We all want that void filled, and search for it in all the wrong ways. And when we do not find it – we react.

    You can be free from that prison though…I pray you realize that you are in one.

    blink,
    show me a group of atheists who want to remove God from the public square. Show me a group of atheists who want to deny the majority belief and deny anything but secular humanism. Show me a group of atheists demanding that not only their opinion be the only opinion, but that competing opinions be removed from the discussion.
    Again, you make the discussion about your own, angry outlook on life by thinking this is a peeing contest. You want to be heard. You want to be validated. You can’t use me to do that. And unfortunately, you didn’t.

  • [5] October 22, 2014 at 12:18pm

    blink, it’s not a personal attack on you. It’s just restating the Truth of God’s Word.

    Do you notice your reaction to the idea of God? Do you react the same way to the Easter Bunny?

    There is power in the name of Jesus.

    Dear Atheists,

    I don’t take your responses personally because they are directed at God, not me. God gives mankind purpose. Without Him, there is no purpose. Please consider that thought: without an Absolute point of reference, outside of our space and time, there is no purpose for our lives. We may as well eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.

    God proved His purpose by transcending space and time to come to earth, performing documented miracles, dying, and rising again, in front of thousands of witnesses. There is just enough seed of doubt left in all of His work to require faith in Him. Because without faith, there is no love. There is only a fact-based choice. No emotion. No fear. No need for love. Only facts. God requires our love, which requires our trust and our faith.

    It is a journey not for the faint of heart. It is the most difficult choice one can make. An absence of facts leaves us vulnerable, and nobody likes that feeling. We all try to escape. Denying Him is the easy way out. Pray and ask Him to reveal Himself and I guarantee you, in time, He will do just that.

    Atheists don’t have a purpose without Christians. They don’t inspire life, they attack it. As demonstrated by this article, the book was written *in response to* ‘Heaven Is For Real.’

    Hold your heads high, men and women of God. There IS power in His name.

    Thanks for pointing that out…I totally missed it.

    I’m not being sarcastic either. :)

  • [16] October 21, 2014 at 1:37pm

    Let me clear your confusion:

    Gun = Right
    Driving = Privilege

    Rights are not regulated. Class dismissed

    MBrid,
    I think I have to disagree with you, but perhaps I missed your point. You tell me.

    The bible is against all sin. If you look upon a woman with lust, you have sinned. If a man looks upon another man with lust, he has sinned.
    Both people need to confess and repent, the gay and the straight. It’s those that willingly choose to deny that these thoughts and actions as sinful that must be marginalized in Christianity. Unrepentant sin must be treated as a disease to the body of Christ. We seek to restore them to the body. Until then, they are kept apart.
