    Jesus’ point was…NO ONE CAN KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS. God’s standard is PERFECTION, so, unless you meet that, you’re toast. If ANYONE could meet the standard, Jesus’ sacrifice would not have been needed. This is why He also says in His Word, “There is NONE righteous, not even one.” -Romans 3:10 (that includes all of you “commandment keepers” out there), and “For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23 He even said “For I tell you that unless your righteousness SURPASSES that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:20. It was for these types of reasons the disciples asked Him at one point “then WHO can be saved?” because they realized that the mark was COMPLETELY UNATTAINABLE. That is why Jesus came, to live the ONLY sinless life, and to go to the cross for ALL the world’s sinners and pay the penalty that they could not. His point of saying “If you want to enter life, keep my commandments” was to illustrate that keeping the commandments was IMPOSSIBLE for men. That’s why He came to “fulfill the law”, which He did at the cross. The requirement of the law was DEATH for SIN, (wages of sin ring a bell?) so He fulfilled the law by dying on the cross in OUR PLACE. Only by resting in Him do we attain the kingdom because HE kept what we cannot. It is not what we DO, but what He DID. If you think you can get in through your filthy rags righteousness, good luck. Me, I’ll rely on His grace.

    “What do Bill Nye, Andrés Roemer, Johnny Depp, Maryam Namazie, and Killah Priest have in common?” Hell, if they don’t repent.

    The man orchestrated the horrendous and violent deaths of nearly 3,000 American citizens. He earned a little excessive force.

    For an atheist, you sure waste a lot of your time and energy on a God you claim you don’t believe exists. If you truly believe this life is all you have, why would you waste one single breath fighting something you think is a figment of someone else’s imagination? It’s like someone spending their one and only life waging war with the tooth fairy. At least Christians hold out for a life beyond this one and, if we’re wrong, we’ll never, ever know it but will have lived a good life with good principals and peace and contentment. If you’re right, and there is nothing but this life, and you really believe that, then you are wasting incredibly valuable, irreplaceable time denigrating, insulting and being intolerant of people who believe in something you don’t instead of going out there and living your one and only life to it’s fullest, and when you close your eyes in death you will cry out for even just one of those wasted minutes back because you get no more. However, if you are wrong, you will regret it for all eternity.

    The first amendment reads “CONGRESS shall make no LAW respecting an establishment of religion…” How does this sheriff’s decision to do this involve either the U.S.Congress or any law passed by them? And don’t give me the “separation of church and state” baloney because that is NOWHERE in the constitution.

    If Trump is the answer then America is doomed. If Trump is a conservative or even a moderate Republican, then Billy Graham is a satanist. We called BHO’s supporters OZombies for falling for his “hope & change” BS and then as soon as a snake oil salesman comes along claiming to be on our side we fall for the same crap. It just tells me that if BHO had declared as a Republican, we would have gladly elected him and he wouldn’t have had to change a single thing in his campaign. We get the government we deserve. It is no wonder at all the Bible calls us sheep. To paraphrase Daffy Duck…”Consequences, Shmonsequences, as long as we win”

    No prayer is needed to either ask God to do His will or to line our will up with His? Then what is the purpose of prayer I wonder? Why, in His model prayer, did Jesus teach His disciples to pray to “Our Father, who art in heaven…Thy WILL be done on Earth, as it is in heaven”? Silly prayer isn’t it if it has no effect? Why does Paul instruct us to “pray without ceasing”? (1 Thessalonians 5:17) How did Moses change God’s mind about destroying the Jews if we are to just “sit back and accept whatever God chooses to do” as you say? (Exodus 32:11-14) How is it that TWICE in Amos, the prophet pleads with God and convinces Him to change His mind? (Amos 7: 1-6) Why does God say “If my people…will humble themselves and PRAY…THEN I will hear…”? (2 Chronicles 7:14) God can, indeed, be convinced to change His mind or act on our behalf through the “effective prayer of a righteous man” which can “accomplish much.” (James 5:16) God does not consider us “specks” in the universe…if you are born again you are His CHILD that He loves enough to give His very Son for. Do you consider your children mere specks? The value of something is determined by Who owns it and how much He was willing to pay for it. God owns us and He paid for us with His Son’s blood…that makes us the most valuable thing in all creation and He calls on us to call Him “Daddy” (Abba) just as His Son did! (Mark 14:36, Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6)

    Then why do people get tried a second time when there is a hung jury?

    To the Georgia legislature…you do know the 2nd amendment wasn’t put there so the founders could go deer hunting, right?

    It has never been a gun problem but a heart or, more to the point, a sin problem. “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” – Jeremiah 17:9

    So Paul was incorrect when he said that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:8)

    So then why do we have any laws at all? If passing a law can’t prevent someone from doing something then why legislate? Why have police? People are going to do what they’re going to do so why have a legal code of any kind? I mean, outlawing theft hasn’t stopped thieves, outlawing speeding hasn’t slowed people down, outlawing prostitution hasn’t stopped women from walking the streets, outlawing murder hasn’t stopped killing. Of course, the liberal looneys who make such arguments have no problem at all when it comes to a desire to outlaw guns. THAT will work they say. Ridiculous.

    All they managed to do was prove that Memories Pizza denies service to no one as they said all along. Their stand had nothing to do with people being gay but about participating in a ceremony that violated their conscience and faith and these two morons just proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. “Gay man purchases pizzas for him and his partner…says this proves pizza shop hates gays.” Film @ 11. I’m sure their guests appreciated two cold pizzas instead of a truly thought out, actually catered meal. That’s a special kind of stupid.

    She’s right…having to have a permit to exercise your rights IS despicable!

    It’s cynical to use the videos to defund PP? It’s CRIMINAL to ignore them and continue to fund PP! “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Different take… watch very closely: Is it possible that the kid was just trying to toss the helmet away and swung it a little low and caught the other guy in the head? He did let go of it. I’m not 100% convinced it was intentional. Stupid and careless perhaps but maybe not intentional. For me it is not completely clear cut and before anybody goes crazy, I’m white.

    It happened to me once and all I can say is if I had been 2-3 feet further along the freeway my passenger and I would have been dead. In my case it was not just a rock but a small boulder that hit the road a split second before I hit it @ 70 MPH. Totaled my vehicle. It was late at night so I never saw it coming off the dark overpass. Never caught the SOBs who did it. These morons should get a lot more jail time for what they did. They think it’s hilarious and then some poor soul like this lady gets permanently injured or someone gets killed. Dumba** losers, each and every one of them!

    Reminds me of an old Doonesbury cartoon where one character suspects the governor of Samoa of taking a bribe and feels compelled to report it. The governor asks: “Who’s the highest authority on this island?” … “You are, sir.” … “So, report it to me.” … “Sir, I suspect you of taking a bribe” … “I’ll look into it.”.

    Cartoons abound in D.C.

    “Splish splash I was taking a bath…” perhaps?
