Nobody stops sinning. Everyone is born and dies a sinner. Perfection is not attainable on this earth. Repentance is required, but no Christian stops sinning until they die. See Paul. And Trenton, the Pharisees thought that they were without sin. Recall how Jesus treated them. I am a Christian because Jesus forgave me, not because I am in any way good.

A sincerely held religious belief motivates the counselors to say “I don’t want to take your money, please give it to someone else.” Follow the Benjamins.

Maggie, what is the benefit to a patient to force a counselor to treat them when the counselor’s heart is not in it? Does that sound like it would work out well for patient? Psychologists have an ethical duty to not practice outside their competency. I don’t want to force a therapist who does not want to treat me to see me anyway for my protection. You would?

Who would WANT to see a therapist who did not want to treat them? I think this bill protects clients more than patients.

No disagreement sccosope, but faking automobile accidents is so common there that YouTube has hours of car videos of people hurling themselves against cars for the insurance.
Fake accidents are rampant in the US too. Staged massacres are also rampant towards an agenda only the government knows.

My God is big and powerful. He communicates with his children through many, many different ways, including many, many Bible translations and paraphrases. But then, my God is awesome and powerful. NOTHING hampers my God.

Jesus is an offensive name. Jesus said that all people are bad and sinful and without hope. He said that there was only one way to peace with God and heaven, to trust in him and reject all other teachers. If you don’t follow Jesus, and he doe not offend you, you are not paying attention to what he says.
You should read the speech given by Nathuram Godse, explaining why he assassinated Gandhi. Here’s a link: http://www.sanskritimagazine.com/india/why-i-killed-gandhi/
“I could never conceive that armed resistance to an aggression is unjust. I would consider it a religious and moral duty to resist and, if possible, to overpower such an enemy by use of force. … Gandhi had done very good in South Africa to uphold the rights and well-being of the Indian community there. But when he finally returned to India, he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was to be the final judge of what was right or wrong. … Against such an attitude there can be no halfway house. Either Congress had to surrender its will to his and had to be content with playing second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality, metaphysics, and primitive vision, or it had to carry on without him. He alone was the Judge of everyone and every thing; he was the master brain guiding the civil disobedience movement … the movement might succeed or fail, it might bring untold disaster or political reverses but that could make no difference to the Mahatma’s infallibility. ‘A Satyagrahi can never fail’ was his formula for declaring his own infallibility and nobody except himself knew what a Satyagrahi is. Thus, the Mahatma became judge and jury in his own cause.”
If you don’t follow Gandhi, and he does not offend you, you are not paying attention to what he says.

Actually, there is a connection between Islamic terrorists and the Nazi party. That is a fact, you can easily search for and see them for yourself.
The most high Imam met personally with Hitler in Germany and returned with the Gestapo to train his "soldiers"....fact!

I am local. The latest I have heard is that only the gunman is dead. He was a 51 year old white local man. An officer approached him with a weapon either near or in the projection booth. The gunman ran out the back, exchanged gunfire with more police, and was shot dead. Three minor injuries, two mace or some other irritant inhalation, and a minor wound from the tomahawk. He left two backpacks, one of which was exploded by the bomb squad.
TM: You might already know this but the most recent update is he was in his 20's and had a history of mental issues. You are right about the injuries. They were minor, except he's dead. He was a white guy with a Spanish name, Montoya I believe. By the way, no bombs.

That woman is a bona fide bigot. She is making the news because she is so rare.
And she is exactly on point regarding the 1st amendment, it protects vile, ignorant, and intolerant speech like hers.

Harry Potter, my God controls His own word. So His scripture is perfect. I do not know your god, who cannot communicate with us, but you might want to upgrade to Jehovah, the one true God. He says homosexual sex is an abomination.

That is a protest? That was two people holding a dozen signs each! The wonderful irony is that God is showing his respect for the Westboro Baptist Church (good democrats all) by making them die off. God forgive them for their hateful hearts.
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”
Benjamin Netanyahu-Man of God?
The modern day “Jews”-The people of God?
The Bible says such are deceivers and NOT OF GOD. Furthermore it warns many times over of false lying Jews, who are vipers, and the Synagogue of Satan. Christ (a true Jew) dismissed these, claiming they were not his sheep. The sheep are identified as the house of Israel.
False Jews killed the Lord Jesus Christ, the prophets and Apostles. They prevented the preaching of the Gospel for the salvation of souls and they stirred up the nations against Christ.
You know only of “Israel” what you are told by the jewish media and false preachers. Christians would be well equipped to deal with this deception if they loved God with a reverential fear and studied his Word. The Abrahamic promises such as Gen 12:3 are Christ’s and those who belong to him. They pertain to no other people. Whoever denies him is acursed.
The master deception is that Satan will claim to be God and his children the people of God and the world will believe it. Christ’s own will be slaughtered and resurrected as he too was.
Good morning CapnCrumbles
Many are Jews, including myself, by way of circumcision of the heart, by The Spirit. Romans2:28,29.
You are correct to say that Jesus came for the lost sheep of the House of Israel.
Jesus also said this about His sheep: John10:14-18~~
I am The Good Shepherd, and I know My own, and My own know me, even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they shall hear My voice, and they will become one flock with One Shepherd. For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.
No one has taken it away from Me, because I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.
Ephesians 1:5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself according to His kind will.
There are many adopted sons and daughters from other pastures who are Jews by circumcision of the heart by The Spirit.

Corker is just a run of the mill Republican. Sadly, Tennessee, a very conservative state, has two big government senators. I have not voted for either of them in years, but the power of the incumbent is so large. Thank you for getting in his face Glenn.
It reminds me that the term RINO is a misnomer. Corker, Boehner, Lamar Alexander, those are real republicans. Sessions and Cruz, they are not republicans, they are something better. It is time to ditch the R.

I actually do not mind the school teaching accurate nutritional information. But they won’t. $10 gets you $20 that they will be peddling the disproven theory that consuming fat makes you fat rather than the scientific information that carbs make you fat. That is what the First Lady has been spreading and it directly contributes to obesity because it has been scientifically disproven.

It is a shame that the chef does not know scientific dietary information. He is basing his comments and findings on the old approach to obesity which has been disproven, the fat bad approach. The science shows that it is carbohydrate intake that causes obesity, not fat and caloric intake. So sorry chef, your meal plan fails.
