    Why did the Blaze use pictures of Helicopters?

    Servant, The Bible is quite clear that salvation is for the Jew first, and then offered to the gentile. Jesus even said that Many branches will but cut off and thrown into the fire (The seed of Abraham who does not believe in the Divinity of Christ), and many branches will be grafted into the tree. (Those not of the seed of Abraham who are grafted into The Chosen People) With my acceptance of Christ Jesus as Lord and one and only salvation, I was “grafted” into the tree. As for Mark 16:9-20. Many Christians Scholars have said that it is not part of the earliest transcripts and would have been added later. However, they will also tell you that nothing within Mark 16:9-20 is contradictory to anything else said in the other Gospels. As a matter of fact, Mark 16:9-20 is backed up by several other verses within the Other Gospels. (Luke 8:2; John 20:1-18), (Luke 24:35), (Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-23). (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 24:46-48) (Luke 24:51; Acts 1:9). Matthew (28:20). All of these verses, being a part of the original text, agree with Mark 16:9-20.

    My point is and was always that people love free speech when they are the only ones allowed to talk. People tend to forget that listening is a big part of conversation. Even if the end result is, “I agree to disagree.” As apposed to Great Moderates in American history, who’s agreement on any subject can be purchased with flattering press coverage, or a bit of pork in a bill.

    Moderate, I don’t watch Hannity, or Foxnews. I don’t watch NBC, CBS. The only time I watch Hannity is when i see an article on the blaze titled, “Hannity explodes,” “Reporter Goes Crazy” ext…. I didn’t want cable, so I only get the internet. Obviously conversations on the street corner are not governed by the constitution. I don’t think most conversations in the White House, Congress or Supreme Court are governed by the Constitution. If these people were governed by the Constitution, then we would be a lot better off. Hence my original point that people think Freedom of speech only means being the only one allowed to talk. I did watch the video. Remember the guy being interviewed in front of the Camera stop talking because the store owner behind and to the right interrupting. Then of course, in true progressive fashion, you resort to character assassination as a means to make a point. “Your a liberal troll…..” If anything, I’m a constitutional Libertarian with Conservative leanings. I’d be impressed if you could find one thing I have a liberal stance on. As for talk radio. The only one I ever listen to is Rush Limbaugh. I usually catch a half hour of his show when commuting between jobs. I do know that Rush might only take a few phone calls in a show.

    “He shall not die.” That is a spiritual reference. Our earthly bodies will die, even Christians who have salvation through Christ will experience a death of our earthly bodies. For those who have salvation in Christ, they will experience the salvation of our souls.

    You are over thinking. I’m not saying your wrong. I’m simply talking about how the Bible reads as is, and not how it was put together. As it sits, the Bible flows fine from Genesis to Revelations. I’m simply saying that it isn’t a certain kind of book in The Old, and a different kind of Book in the New. Its the same Book through out. God didn’t suddenly change his Mind in Matthew Mark Luke and John. The events described in Matthew Mark Luke and John were all foretold in the Old Testament. Jesus was the coming Christ in the Old Testament, as much as he was the Arrived Christ in the New. And after his crucifixion, he was the same Christ after he rose from the dead from acts to revelations.

    Which is to say, that with my acceptance of Jesus Christ, I was grafted into the tree of Gods Chosen people. Does that mean Jews can deny Christ? Remember Jesus said “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” He was saying, that his own people. His own blood were denying him his honor. So remember, many branches will be cut off and thrown into the fire. The Bible is simply one book. And he who accepts Christ accepts the God of the Old and New Testament. Because he was the word before the word was written. And He is still the word of the New Testament.

  • [3] August 28, 2014 at 4:40am

    The Bible is one book. Divided into an old and new Testament. It was all divinely inspired by the one true God of both the old and new Testament. The God in the old is the same as the God in the new. To use secular literary terms, the old Testament foreshadowed events in the New Testament. Prophesies foretold in the old testament were fulfilled with the arrival of Christ in the New Testament. You don’t have to read the Bible in different ways. It isn’t a certain kind of story in the Old Testament, and a different type of story in the New. The Bible is a continuous book, written specifically for his chosen people. So who are Gods chosen people? The seed of Abraham. God chose Abraham, and blessed him with many decedents. Out of his decedents would come the Christ. Through Mary, Jesus can trace his maternal bloodline directly to Abraham, as was promised in the Old Testament. Through the Father, Jesus has his Divinity. He was man, and God at the same time. And he was the “Jewish” savior that came from the Jews as was Promised to Abraham, and that the prophets of the old Testament foretold. So if the Jews were and still are Gods Chosen people, then how is salvation available to the rest of us. Everything is possible through Jesus Christ. Remember what he said about grafting the tree. Many branches will be cut off and thrown into the fire, and other branches will be grafted on to the tree. Which is to say…….

    Please don’t judge me spiritually based on my punctuation.

    If I’m understanding this correctly, Sam decided to wait to shower as to not make everyone else uncomfortable. I would appreciate that. It’s one thing to have a gay teammate, but its another thing to have to share a shower with him, and if he is trying to make it easy on everyone else by waiting to shower, then good for him. Whats the problem here?

    I love history, and I admire the people who lived in truly difficult times. People that didn’t have government programs, that pushed ahead and survived. I can’t read enough about American Colonization. I often wonder what it was like to live back then. To be the first to try and build a home here. And like most people who enjoy history I often wounder if I would survive. Well, I don’t think many boomers, or Gen X’s or people of my generation could survive, because none of our generations could possibly contemplate the amount of constant work and hardship that went into life. And as much as I’ve read, and as much as I know, in reality, even I don’t have a clue what those peoples lives were like. I blame Social Security and other programs for disturbing the natural order of things. My grandmother just died last week at age 80. I remember going over to her house and seeing my great grandmother. Here i was 10 years old surrounded by 3 generations of people who knew more than I did. Starting from 1908 to 1958. Unfortunately, Social security has deprived todays kids with something that I was lucky enough to have when I was younger, Grandparents around. And I don’t mean they visited a lot. I mean, Grandma can’t live on her own, she is moving in. So I constantly had wisdom around. With so many seniors moving to Florida for 6 months out of the year, it makes total sense that kids are dumb, because nobody is their to teach them.

    It wasn’t a swipe, it was a statement of fact. It isn’t meant to be disrespectful, but it is true. I’m 31. And don’t misunderstand, my generation isn’t any better or any worse. But if you compare Early 20th century generations to boomers, or Gen Xers, or 80′s babies or the current crop, well, that early 20th century generation would win each and every time. Their lives had purpose. Survival. Everything they did had purpose. Their lives were far more challenging than anything any recent generation has been through. Again, I’m not saying baby boomers didn’t face challenges. But there is something to be said about being born into an entitlement mentality. If you were born in 1945, from the time you got a job, you knew that Social Security and other subsequent and latter added social programs would be there. If you were born 50 years prior, in 1895, you worked because you had to work to survive. And if the crop didn’t come in, you had to depend on the kindness of others to get by. But it has gotten worse. While boomers had security, they still had to pay their way through school. Kids these days are encouraged not to work while in school because it could be to hard. Since FDR we have dumbed down society, and made things easy. And I think we have reached a level where life is so easy, you now have kids looking into their phones acting like idiots because they have nothing better to do.

    You know nothing of economics, You know nothing of how wealth is generated, you know nothing of sports, and despite your cries for the rich to help others, I don’t think you have many morals either. So while the Lord did say, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” He also only required that he tithe 10 percent. Obama makes more than he does, and doesn’t even give that percentage to charity. Do you know what else the Lord said. DO NOT COVET THEY NEIGHBORS GOODS. The down trodden, and poor always seem to forget that one. Oh How about, “He who shall not work, shall not eat.” You are the problem with this country. You used to worry about “Keeping up with the Jones’.” But when you realized you didn’t have their talent or ability, you decided to criticize the Jones’ for having more than you.

    A pre-tax percentage goes to his agent. And if the man is smart, he probably has an accountant he pays to handle his money and be sure that the government gets every last drop he has to pay in taxes before any states comes after him. So the riches this particular guy is making is long gone before he ever see’s a dime. Remember how he was drafted to the Jets. 290,000 is a lot of money to the average American. But in New Jersey the guy is Upper Middle Class. He isn’t living in a mansion on a hill overlooking the little people. In a league that takes a tole on the body, and requires a lifetime of health issues after leaving the game, these players must be smart to cover themselves after their careers. And the average NFL career only lasts 4 years. So this guy may have made the max he will ever make. Not every player gets Tom Brady 20 million dollars a year. Moral of the story is. People should help others. The Lord said, to whom much is given, much is expected. Yet he didn’t excuse the poor from helping themselves and others. So rather than sit their and complain about how much he has, why don’t you do something productive in your life that generates wealth, and you can do with your money as you see fit. Economics isn’t a 0 sum game. There is only a limited number of physical dollars available because you haven’t generated something of value to back the dollar.

  • [1] August 27, 2014 at 7:29am

    Class envy much? Kerses, what these players make is relative. They make a salary based on the sports ability to attract massive audiences. If the NFL wasn’t so popular, then these guys wouldn’t make the amount of money they do. It is 100% a consumer driven game. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. If you don’t watch it don’t complain about it. If your jealous, then do something that will make more money for yourself. If you end up making that money, then you can do with it as you see fit. Including donating it all to charity so people can get surgery. I’m not a fan of the Jets, but I looked up this guys’ contract He has a 4 year contract that pays him about $650,000 a year. NFL contracts are NOT fully guaranteed. He can be terminated at any time, and many of the contracts are performance based, so very few players ever make the full amount of the contract. He is taxed more money, in more ways than you could ever imagine. He lives in New Jersey because the Jets drafted him. (Not his choice). So he pays NJ state income tax. (One of the highest in the nation) He pays federal taxes, in a higher income bracket. Because they are “game checks,” if he plays a game in California, then that “game check” was earned in California and he must pay income tax their. He does that 8 times a year in 8 different states, not to mention he still pays NJ income tax. So that $650,000 yearly salary is now somewhere around the $290,000 range.

    Pfizer is developing a new wounder drug that allows people to never die. Its rather amazing, and the science is to hard to explain right here right now. But if you do plan on being their when the sun burns out, then you need NeverDie. Side affects may include, Vomiting, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, persistent cough, bleeding rectal glans, open sores, runny nose, leaky sinuses, herpes, memory loss, erectile dysfunction, leaky sinus, herpes, memory loss, and death. Check with your doctor today to see if NeverDie is right for you.

    The Society we live in Today.
    Jesus being crucified on the cross as a perfect sin offering so that all those who believe in him and repent can enter the kingdom of heaven. = Offensive.
    A woman entering an abortion clinic to end the life that grows inside her. = Beautiful
    A child saying bless you in class when someone sneezes. = Offensive
    14 year old’s going to planned parenthood to talk to a doctor about an abortion. = A right
    Saying Mary Christmas to someone. = Offensive
    Listening to most of the music today = Artistic Expression
    Tea Party people marching on Washington expressing their concerns with the direction of the country. And cleaning up after themselves when they leave. = Offensive Racism
    Looters in Missouri using the death of an 18 year old Gentile Giant (regardless of how it happened) as an excuse break the law, and get free stuff.. = Just common sense

    Does anyone else see a problem with society these days.

    @Servant.Of.Allah, I do not agree with your religion. I stand opposed to your beliefs, and hold tightly to my own. But, the manner in which you and 808Patriot are conducting your debate is very refreshing. Nobody is bashing the other, Its the marketplace for ideas.

    Thoughtful discussion between two people that disagree. = Probably offensive. LOL

    It isn’t a question of the Government, or Jake Trapper or anyone else violating their right to free speech. It is however a lack of understanding of constitutional free speech. Free speech used to mean that we could compete in the arena of ideas by sharing ones thoughts and ideas on a certain subject, and through healthy debate come to a conclusion. Even in the conclusion is that we disagree. All without being forced into silence by the government. But the progressive in this video was indoctrinated into believing that “If i don’t agree with you, I will interrupt, and scream over top of you.Because Obama, Communism, Socialism, Nazism, Meo, Stalin, Sharia law, never allowed for your type of free speech, and neither will I.”
