    I wonder if the company rep thought it went well?

    Okay, so it’s clear this officer should be fired, and possibly put behind bars himself. But we in ‘Murrica love to put uninformed, “smart” but not wise people, in positions of power in government and education. So…not surprised we deal with idiots like this wannabe cop.

    timarina,
    #1 This was not terrorism. You need to check your definitions of what a terrorist is/is not
    #2 Why do I care if I’m on a watch list? Do you think I fear my voyeuristic government? I only fear Him who can kill both my body and soul.
    #3 You’re funny. Probably a little crazy too. But that always adds to the fun.

    My comment disappeared…anywho…

    The Fed’s “barricade” was illegal per Oregon rules of engagement. It was around a blind corner too.

    Ironically, Amal, the law *comes* from God.

    I see several of your comment on here and clearly you have no idea of truth or concern for facts. Please educate yourself:

    God is a marvelous, complicated, creative, and inspiriting Creator. I love that I am made in His image, and that He has given us curiosity, logic, and the ability to postulate ideas to figure out a small bit of what He made.

    But I long even more for the place of rest He made for me, when I read a verse like this:

    Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
    Nor have entered into the heart of man
    The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

    That is exciting!

    That is true courage. I love how God redeems people from sin and pain. Our values are not in our actions or behaviors, but in being a image-bearer of the One who made us. That is our value.

    Balt,
    Yes, I would agree with you that outlawing porn, for example, is not the solution. The “fist shaking” that you speak of would be more akin to bringing awareness to people just how evil porn is. Outright bans sound too idealistic, and it does not give mankind the chance to be confronted with an evil and choose how to respond. No porn = no chance to choose good. We live in an evil world, so we need to know how to navigate the landmines and make choices that move us towards God, and not create a paradise on earth so we are insulated from difficult choices, which ultimately do not test our faith or give us reason to trust in Him.

    That’s my point. Make people aware just how destructive porn is to their lives. Particularly men. Men (and many women) are wired to respond to visual stimuli, like porn, instantly. So men, when they see something sexual, are reacting to a stimulus that is already affecting their brains. They are “chasing down” a freight train of sexual temptation and chemical responses in our bodies. There is no abstinence at this point, it is only choosing to make our thoughts obedient to Christ – capturing that runaway train and stopping it. And when a person becomes addicted to porn, which is easy to do because our bodies respond the same way as it would to drugs, lots of bad choices follow in the wake.

    Balt,
    I would ask the porn addict if he feels his “symptom” is a product of his culture, or his own choice making. Much like I would ask the drug user if his drug using is a product of culture or his own choice-making. Does the fact that temptation becomes harder to resist change who is ultimately responsible for the choice-making? Of course not. Making porn readily available does not give license to sin.

    I cannot force society, or culture, to obey God’s word. However, I can choose whether I do or do not.

    Matt,
    Are you suggesting a Christian can lose salvation? That is what I am hearing, and that is not biblical.

  • [2] February 9, 2016 at 3:56pm

    I just realized I said this wrong…

    I should have said “since when would black people lose a race to white people…”

  • [7] February 9, 2016 at 1:31pm

    Balt,
    No, your point is not clear. Because what I see as confusing is your minimizing of evil. You are suggesting that mere Christian presence in public spheres, or Christian persecution in the M.E is a greater threat than the thinking of a man.

    Christ changes mankind from the inside (his thinking), not the outside (what is seen in public). I think you underestimate the insidiousness of the evil at work with the porn epidemic.

  • [4] February 9, 2016 at 12:16pm

    Are you suggesting there are more Muslims beheading Christians than Christian porn users?

    If not, then what is your point?

    Guilt is the byproduct of a violation of dignity (of others or self). In this case, the dignity is that of the user (or the self). Many people will encounter a point at which the guilt they have been suppressing and ignoring will bubble up and enter their conscience.

    I have heard this exact reasoning from addicts, per the article: “…Christians might be increasingly hearing about porn in church and are possibly starting to feel convicted, so they avoid it on Sundays.” Not saying it’s the only one, but there may be truth to it.

  • [14] February 9, 2016 at 11:38am

    Since when would white people lose a foot race to black people? That right there tells you this is a bunch of bs.

    blink,
    Christians believe Jesus is God. Muslims do not. On that point alone (there are others), the difference is clear.

    Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the same God as Christians because they deny that Jesus is God.

    Joxer,
    Sorry! Just using statistics.
    I can add you to my list, if you’d like.
