Disbelief is a choice to think and believe a certain way.
Belief is a choice to think and believe a certain way.
And yes, everyone has faith. Maybe not in God or gods, but faith in the ground holding their weight, in the food providing sustenance, in the air being breathable.

Why does God need a designer? Our Universe requires a power source outside of our space and time. God/Jesus make this claim that they “always have been.” The logic plays out, if you spend the time and research it.

Your sarcasm made me laugh!!! :)

Good point. If the RNC wants to play chicken, force Trump to go independent and put Cruz up as the republican nominee.
That will mess us up in all kinds of ways! Then they can say “look Conservatives, we gave you what you always said you wanted and he still lost!”
 November 24, 2015 at 5:06pm
Well said. 2Cor 10:5 tells us to do exactly that – take our thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ.
Oh if this were only the level of discourse we were having with sinners of all kinds!

If what you say is true, then shame on the Republicans for sowing this discontent among Conservatives by hoodwinking us time and time again with loser candidates, and marginalizing the conservative blocs of the party.
They are reaping what they sowed. I want either a true Conservative (Ted Cruz is the only one who fits this right now), or someone who will destroy the Republican power structure. I think that is Trump. And maybe we’ll luck out that he practices what he preached.
 November 24, 2015 at 4:28pm
I didn’t realize the RNC supported conservatives for Presidential bids.
Or are you being sarcastic?

If I understand you correctly, you’re dividing the idea of homosexuality, the desire, from homosexuality, the act. But the fact is both are sin: if you have lust in your heart, you are an adulterer.
Kaltenbach sounds like he’s trying to appeal to the outward man only. If he has luck with that, great! But focusing on the outward man sounds Pharisaical to me. That Pharisees were the greatest target of Jesus’ anger.

Not sinning is not possible. Reducing sin, yeah, that’s possible. Eliminating it is not, not this side of Heaven.

So the RNC would rather Hillary win by forcing Trump to go Independent and put a lame RNC candidate in his place?
I will smile as I vote for Trump, as an I or an R.
Yep, as many of us will. And here’s the PAC Facebook page they are referring to:
Note well the comments section. Nearly EVERY post is from Trump supporters bashing the PAC. It’s priceless!
Trump or Cruz. No other. Killary can have it if that is the RNC's/DNC's selection.
I would not be surprised if Trump goes third party. The Republican Party created this problem in 1912 by removing Incumbent Theodore Roosevelt from the party platform, eventually splitting the party vote, electing Woodrow Wilson as president.
And as Paul Harvey said: "THAT IS THE REST OF THE STORY"
No....TRUMP IS THE ONE WO WANTS HILLARY TO WIN. Why do you think he had a conversation with Bill Clinton before deciding to run??? I guess throwing your childrens futures down the crapper is your choice...what a selfish a-s-s you must be.
So you're a traitor to Conservatism.
Got it. You know what happens to traitors?
True conservatives will vote for Cruz instead, so who cares if he dashes for third party. The democrat in him has been wanting to leave all along.
Progressives don't have a Party. They have a philosophy. Trump is exposing who they are.
The establishment will break the deal, make it look like trump broke the deal, then all hell breaks loose….
The RNC does not care about the country, only themselves
The republican establishment is cruising for a good ass whooping. Pull that and we will vote for trump. We are for him now not because he has an R after his name, because he opposes the republican establishment. I wonder if he would pull more independents if he runs as an independent candidate. This could be the start of a viable third party.
thenan: Just look at who the RNC wants to shove down America's throat, Bush and Kasich? Jeb is as exciting as watching ice cream melt and Kasich is delusional. Somehow the RNC doesn't get it. The Conservative base doesn't want their RINO losers. The RNC is far worse than even the Democrats. They are the enemy of the people! They may as well join the Demon-rat Party.
The rino’s running are so idiotic they believe they are losing because of Trump and i honestly believe they want him to go third party. They think they can win that way.
The truth is Trump is winning because they suck as candidates.
Either way Cruz comes out on top. He has positioned himself well.
Then you will be voting for the new world order, just as if you voted for Hillary or Obama.
Trump is part of the problem, not the solution.
He is part of the elite that wish to run the world.
Research is positions on things that you care about, prior to his run for office. They were far from being conservative positions.
Yes, ‘woe be on them’ indeed. I too will smile as I vote for Trump, as an I or an R. It doesn’t matter. The GOP is sinking fast; betraying Trump would absolutely pull the plug. It would be political suicide, and the RNC knows it. The ball is in their court – but are they playing to win? Trump is!
Trump / Cruz 2016!
RNC has nothing to do about it, blame the goobers that support Kasich. But then again neither DT or his supporter are smart enough to figure it out.
Donald trump is acting more and more unbalanced every day threating law suit and tempere tantrums.
Me too.....I will NEVER again vote for a RINO, and I am sure not voting for a Dem. I will not vote for the lessor of two evils......I'm not voting for evil at all--ever again......
How in the world can we get rid of these “GOP strategists”? I’m so sick of hearing their crud. Go Ted.

Ceremonial Law is not the same as Civic Law is not the same as Moral Law.

And if you can quote where I “judged” anyone, you would have a point.
 November 24, 2015 at 1:55pm
Okay, I won’t say “homosexuality is a sin.”
Homosexuality is one of many sins. I am a sinner because of many other sins. But the difference is, I call my sin “sin.” If that were the basis of discussion on this topic, it would be more productive.
Romans 8:1 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
If being gay is a sin, so is women speaking in church. So is wearing mixed fiber clothing. But no one ever speaks out against those.
This pastor is right, there are good and bad gays and good and bad Christians. There are also gay Christians! I appreciate that he approaches the issue with respect, but I still disagree with his conclusions.
and you demonstrate that you belong to Christ by not sinning. "If you love me you will obey my commandments".
You're completely missing his point, thenannerpus.
What he is saying is that since many, many people now operate under the assumption that people are born homosexual, that stating homosexuality is a sin will never ever get through to them.
"Instead, he encourages a focus on discussing his belief that same-sex intimacy is what the Bible condemns."
The extent of HairyPalmer's arguments usually go like this;
"Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Christians Bad! Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Homosexuals (and their fellow travelers), Good. That as far as his intellect will take him, demonstrably so.
Just tell him he's wrong, as usual, and let it go.
Harry – never stop your questioning. The Lord wants us always to think through what we do, understand our choices and take full responsibility for them. There is a great deal of deception in this world – question absolutely everything.
As the Lord is not of this world , the Truth is also not of this world.
"We do not intend to admit to our campus any homosexuals. If any of you have this tendency and have not completely abandoned it, may I suggest that you leave the university immediately after this assembly.... We do not want others on this campus to be contaminated by your presence." (Ernest Wilkinson, president of Brigham Young University, in a 1965 lecture to the BYU student body, titled: "Make Honor your Standard."
God specifically states that it goes against His law and even goes so far as separating it
even further by calling it an abomination.
and He even calls women who dress as men and men who dress as woman (with intent) also
an abomination, no same sex intimacy there...... hmmm thinker!
All you're doing is picking which sins you can and can't "live with" while insisting that others who have a different list than you are somehow not doing it right.
November 24, 2015 at 1:44pm
Not sure I agree completely with you. I think he hates America, yes. But I also thinks he wants Israel destroyed, hence his arming of ISIS. He wants to undermine all of the stable regimes in the ME with crazies like ISIS who won’t hesitate to nuke, attack, destroy Israel.
I think he’s going for the “twofer.”
November 24, 2015 at 1:24pm
If we’re fighting a proxy war against Russia, then this news makes sense.
WHEN Isis does it’s thing in this country……guess who will be persona non grata……
I can fear the ocean.
I can respect the ocean.
Either way if I can't swim I drown.
I thought our values were supposed to be something along the lines of "Love this country - Defend this country" - not "let terrorists come on in & destroy this country"
pus: Yes. Think Barack Obama has confused common sense with losing our values !
I don't fear a child molester (and I really don't hate him either)
and I don't let him baby sit my children,
but I would wonder about somebody that suggests that I do that with my family all the while trying to make me the bad guy cause I CARE ABOUT MY FAMILY.
This guy keeps getting slimier.

I think his comments are helpful to the extent that they remind us Believers that we must work hard(er) on “making disciples of all nations.”
Hand-wringing on the “when” and “if” is pointless. We know it’s coming, and Lord, please hasten your great and terrible day!
But if an investigation gets too close to his scrawny, cowardly hide, as it did in Fast & Furious, he'll claim "Executive Privilege" and hide everything with his slimy fingerprints on it.
I hope the Hope & Changers and those "really proud" stupid jerks that elected him are satisfied with what they did to our nation !
