Anarchy, does not a community make. We must all come together around some set of commonly accepted laws or we don’t have a community we have anarchy. This entire argument streams from a flaw in our constitution. The first amendment does not comply with the first commandment. Thus this system is doomed.

Glenn needs to relax, remember there are a lot of us that are new here. and they will still have strong ties to home. they will get over it. secondly remember basic human nature, you don’t pick up all you own and move across country for a job with a liberal mindset, its much easier to collect welfare, “its the Gov responsibility to take care of you anyway”.
WRONG. Liberal people are the ones who push you forward. Look at the red states. They are the ones who suck the most government money. Look at the blue states,. They are the ones who pay the most taxes. Liberals support you closed minded conservative status quo people. But we still love you

Islam is the anti-christ so, reconstruction of the caliphate, yes this is end time stuff, but we have not seen anything yet . If your not terrified about the end times, your uninformed…

Islam is the anti-christ so...
And Christ is ant-Muslim, now what? ;)
So who's religion is right? ;)
rationalman, no "religion" is right. the facts are that God exists, he created us, The Word is Jesus, The Bible is the inerrant Word of God and Jesus will return. man created religion, God created man.
islam is not the anti christ, revelation is clear that the "anti christ" (not an actual term that has been accepted by fundamental bible teachers) will be an actual person (a roman-grecian jew).

rationalman, no “religion” is right. the facts are that God exists, he created us,...
What was God last name and can you prove that "HE" created us? ;)
If no religion is right, then how come we are fighting against Muslim? ;)
Your move (Don't you just love Game of Chess?) ;)
Sep. 15, 2013 at 1:20AM
islam is not the anti christ...
dpxy, how come you thru in Islam? Please explain? ;)
I never mention "Islam" Sir/Ma'm, what made you come to that conclusion? ;)
Stay focus folks, doxy is a snake! ;)

@ inblack. Rom 2, 4, 9. Eph 2,3 Gal 2, 3 would also seem to support your position. Problem is, dispensationalism.
Much of the church at large, especially evangelicals fail to recognize the difference between national israel, and the true israel, (the church).
Yeah, the made up position that God acts Widely Differently in different "dispensations" surely is the problem.
Looks to me like Paul and Romans 11 speaks clearly and REJECTS the Premise that God has REPLACED Israel with the Church. The whole "grafted" metaphor and image would make NO SENSE if that is what he thought. Taking his OWN language at face value PAUL expects ALL of God's promises TO THE NATION of Israel WILL be fulfilled.
Why you guys feel the need to disconnect it you have not been forthcoming with.
I suspect either the Straight Jacket of a Dispensational Systematic Theology or the a priori need to separate US Foreign Policy by Theological Argument.

Or we could look at them as Gods blessings, would you rather be overrun by hogs, or muslims. Ham sandwich anyone…
And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)
This nation deserves the judgement of God
America today - can be found in 2 Timothy chapter 3
Our nation has accepted the wickedness of homosexuality as natural. Our churches are not effective, being they are more concerned with mimicking the world and rocking their congregations with the world’s music.
2 Tim 3 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
The hippies of the 1960 preached Drugs, Sex, and Rock and Roll./
those hippies are now running the nation.
Instead of our churches seeing the wickedness of the hippie movement, they addopted the hippie rock music, and replaced gospel preaching with feel good music.
You can not worship the God of the Bible with the filth of the world/
For all the nations, "the end will come". - Daniel 2:44-45,
This "good news" is in Daniel 7:13-14
REV.13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. NWO..One world government..This is the objective.. Daniel 7:25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time (3.5 yrs) Dan 7:26 But the court will convene, and his ruling authority will be removed--destroyed and abolished forever! Lucifer's objective http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgo8MuszjlE&feature=youtu.be
I haven been and will continue to pray for our country.
Sorry but God does not interfere everytime the monkey people cry help. Its all about us helping each other.
“Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.... We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”
(read the whole prayer in Daniel chapter 9)
May God have mercy on us.
Peace is coming. Jesus will return to earth soon ("thy kingdom come") and He will reign for one thousand years ("thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.")
((( Instead of our churches seeing the wickedness of the hippie movement, they addopted the hippie rock music, and replaced gospel preaching with feel good music. )))
Remember rangerskippy Gods people Don't judge by hearing in the ear or seeing with the eye's but by the spirit of God....
SUPTOYOU - You're partially right in that actions on our part are necessary. But your wrong if you think that our actions don't come from the Authority and Will of God. A person cannot do the right thing without the Will of God providing the desire, motivation, and strength to do so.
and again amen, we are a christian nation but we are not christians first and should be.people are vegetarians first , motorcyclists first, Italian or swedish or black or hispanics first. and so on,
If the Rev. Graham was 45 y/o and still preaching, Obama would have him listed as a dangerous radical and authorize the NSA to tap his phone and email account. I guarantee it.
If people in the nation would have a real honest revival - a real turning of our faces towards HIM - God would heal our country overnight!
But our country is full of wicked, amoral non-believers - so we are being judged. We need to be judged.
Hey RANGERSKIPPY Dr. Graham is right "Join me in asking God to give people that thirst.” - America has had a lot of help getting as depraved and corrupted as it is. I blame the church for this. When prayer was taken out of the schools in 1962 and the Bible in 1963 WHERE was the church? Sitting on its collective "blessed assurance" looking up for their redemption to draw nigh! But Yahshua - Jesus Christ had a parable of the "wicked servant" the one who took his talent and buried it - waiting for the Master's return. Evil got emboldened when the Church did nothing. This is a spiritual battle as you well know. But Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. On ones knees in fervent prayer crying out to a Holy God. Then get up Church and do something to take this country back!
Bonhoeffer had it right "
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act"
I URGE everyone who has not taken the time to watch Christian Conservative Curtis Bowers' excellent, masterful movie Agenda: Grinding America Down to do so. Take the full measure of the enemy within - People have an inkling something is wrong - but how wrong and why they need to be taught. AGENDA: GRINDING AMERICA DOWN is the tool to start that process; awaken the sleeping giant that is AMERICA.
We are ALL part of this conflict to restore America to Judeo/Christian values
America profoundly is in need of Gods divine intervention in the hearts and minds of men and women. We have dug a very deep hole. We have lost our mooring and our direction. A genuine repentance followed by a seeking the face of God for His mercy and grace may be able to stem the tide and turn back the evil that has fallen upon this once great nation.
"evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then tries to silence good." ~Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." ~ John Adams
Amen, This great country needs a wake up call from God, to awaken unbelievers to the knowledge, power, and grace of God.
how does god change someone without violating any pretense of free will? please explain this to me billy.
I'm praying for it. There are countless signs of ways it could come. We just need to have faith. Humanity has weathered worse times of apostasy. The Bible warns that a time will come when it'll get really bad but we cannot know when that is, and must not ever give up on the lost as long as we can still try, and still pray for them. :)
I really appreciate his message. ^_^
SZ, well first of all, the Bible is clear that some things like this do happen.
Secondly, I can change people without violating their freewill, and so can you, by pointing things out that appeal to our reason or our better natures. So surely God could do this as well, including possibly in ways we can't. We need not necessarily know how he does this to know it's at least possible.
One of the ways he does this is through the actions of the godly who the lost encounter, and the like. :)
We had all better hope that Christ's return has been delayed, because NONE of us, no, not even one, are ready for his impending, sweeping return, reformations, restorations, etc. Find out what Babylon truly is, then come out of her, (YHWH) God's people, and repent, for the time is indeed at hand.
And yet my church of 10 years is silent on the moral decay and cultural mutation occurring in our great nation. Last week I reached my limit. I decided to leave. Where will I go? Too many churches today refuse to deliver a message of sin consciousness and deliberate Christian living. Too many churches refuse to speak of Hell fire or the Lord's judgement. God is a gracious God indeed! God is love surely! But a God devoid of holiness, righteousness and judgement, a God devoid of wrath which is reserved for the unrepentant, is not the God of scriptures, such is a false God.
If we want to see a spiritual revival in the US we MUST start within the Christian community. The churches are full of false teachers and goats. Women pastors, homosexuals, sexual deviants, gamblers, gluttons, drunkards, greedy worshipers of self.
Many churches are adopting this message of 'hyper grace' theology. Where they claim to recieve Christ, but fail to teach obedience and discipline by the direction and power of the Holy Spirit (Advisor). Paul warned the church in Corinth multiple times saying, "You say 'I am allowed to do anything'--but not all things are beneficial." Jesus said that if you disobey his commands you don't love him, and are either a false convert or least in his Kingdom.
If we want a revival:
1- Right ourselves through full submission
2- Right our churches
3- Witness to all the world. Unafraid unadulterated & unashamed
Jesus is King.
Skippy is correct in that the leaders of today are the rebellious children of the 1960s and 70s. The revolution of sex, drugs and rock and roll continues! It NEVER STOPPED. They are still rebelling against divine instruction and natural law, and they have taught their children to do the same. The upcoming generations are worse than the ones prior. We have a bunch of godless individuals who are actively destroying healthy tradition and perverting societal norms. The same people are looking around wondering why society is falling apart, and pointing the finger at others.
"When there is moral rot within a nation, it's government topples easily. But with wise and knowledgable leaders, there is stability." Proverbs 28:2
Ask God to assist you in making necessary changes in your own life, so that God will give ear to your prayers. Regularly repent of your sins, love and honor God with the whole of yourself. Proverbs 15 tells us that God will hear the prayers of the righteous. James 4 tells us to ask with a pure heart, or pure motive.
Pray that God raise up strong, godly leaders to direct these stubborn people. Pray that He withold his judgement be patient, and forgive, for our people are ignorant. If he will not withold punishment (that his justice and righteousness might be satisfied) then pray that the Lord grant safety, asylum, and provision to his servants amidst the coming chaos.
I pray also for a spiritual awakening to Jesus, bring us to repentance, with grace and mercy to follow. I pray that like Ninevah the people would see the error of their ways, and mourn. I pray that forgiveness would flow over the brothers and sisters for the hurts of the past years, and that joy, peace love and forgiveness flow like a flood. I pray Jesus is praised and recognized for the Savior He is, and how awesome and good our God is! Which reminds me: "That's My King" Dr. S.M. Lockridge if you haven't seen it yet on youtube.
"how does god change someone without violating any pretense of free will? "
Introducing new information and situations does not violate free will. YOU are still the one who needs to make an active choice about whether to accept God or not. God won't force someone to open their eyes to His miracles, but He will make sure those miracles are there for those who open their eyes.
If you've studied the history of WWII, there was one act of God against the Nazis after another. The coldest winter in a century with extended 40 below temps stopped the Germans from taking the Soviet Union in 1941. If it had been a normal winter, the uniforms and equipment they had would have been adequate. Temperatures to the 20s and teens would have been an inconvenience to the Germans, not something that gelled diesel and turned oils into sludge like 40 below.
Hitler's error in judgement in letting the British Expeditionary Force go allowed the British to stay actively in the war. Giving a window of a few hours of good weather to land our forces at normandy and preventing the Germans from counterattacking effectively because Hitler had taken a sleeping pill. And so on.

Keep in mind these women are in prison, meaning in most cases those children are in the state foster system as well.

Politicians be their very nature a people that seek power, so congress in general should only be open for business about 3 months a year. This however is the product of a communist agenda created many years ago and just now coming to fruition.
June 25, 2013 at 6:48am
I am not sure which is worse the governments inclination to throw logic out the window, or the ignorance of the people to permit it.
June 21, 2013 at 6:09pm
That being said, sinners are supposed to sin thats what they do. Until salvation no one has the capability to defeat sin. So belittling the homosexuals for their sin that they can not overcome until salvation is counterproductive at a minimum, and hypocritical. It is really no surprise that they hate us christians, after all we are very quick to run down homosexual behavior, but just how often do we address greed, gluttony, lust, you know, those sins that so easily beset us. Just why is it we draw the line on the sin that we don’t struggle with.
June 21, 2013 at 3:15pm
Sexual behavior, is an action period. Wether straight or gay it is an action and thus can be controlled. Just because a man finds many women attractive, it does not justify his pursuit of many women. Just because some young girls may be attractive, it does not justify a pedophile. Just because some men may find other men attractive it does not justify homosexual behavior. We are all born into a sinful world, and that does not justify evil behavior. Sin destroys just like a cancer and the only cure is salvation through Jesus.
Oh and suing a women over her deceased hero husbands actions, is going to do wonders for your reputation Mr Ventura.

Yep, and with obamacare, all the pieces are in place.

Primary difference being that in benghazi they passed up the customary use of Marines for security, and choose instead to use al quida supporters. Then refused the calls for help. Take your pick is it criminal ignorance, or treason.

This is not about white guilt, its about black support. That has been waining since obamas election. And please dont accuse me of racism, i am lilly white, i adopted 4 hispanics and one black child whom i love dearly.
