Do care earnestly about the rule of law. It is called the First Amendment.

I am going to step out a little further on the plank than Coach, TRK, and J Graham, at my own peril. In 1 Corinthians 14:1 Paul exhorts believers to “earnestly desire the spiritual gifts” in other words, ask the Father for these gifts or manifestations of the Holy Spirit. In the modern day church we have a tendency to worship a God of the delayed response. We expect an eventual and oblique answer, rather than an immediate intervention or a physical, supernatural manifestation to occur. Except for wisdom and knowledge, the spiritual gifts are supernatural manifestations and therefore extraordinary to the average Christian experience. Like all prayers, gifts are granted based on faith. The mountain will only move IF you believe God will move it.
So it really boils down to a test of faith. And many churches are afraid or reluctant to put their individual and collective faith to that kind of test.
So instead, many churches either downplay the significance of the spiritual gifts or claim that the gifts passed with the end of the Apostolic Era. They also accuse those who do receive the gifts of fostering exclusivity and divisiveness in the Body. The reality is that God is not a respecter of persons- the spiritual gifts are available to all who ask, and believe.

Well said, Sir!
Early in my walk while I was attending a full gospel church , I was accused of being a Pentecostal because I spoke in tongues. I was confused that despite the fact that I embraced the five solos and the Westminster Confession, I was being excluded subtly from my congregation because of my gift that I confined to my quiet time.

Agreed. The engineered flaws in this alleged “survey” are so numerous it is laughable. Assembly of God is the largest Pentecostal denomination in the US, yet it is listed separately. Mormons are excluded (wonder if Glenn intervened ) as are JWs, Orthodox, Episcopalians/Anglicans…the list goes on. The intent of this “survey” is whip up dissent and open old wounds among the Believers. It only serves the objectives of the Enemy.
Born agains who tear into their brothers and sisters herein need to shut up, ask Christ for forgiveness and then ask your targets for forgiveness. A house divided….
And the Blaze needs to ask us all for forgiveness…it is turning into the National Enquirer of blogs.

NO, only you and your atheist fascists are unto banning people’s expression of their religion. We Christians do not attempt to prevent you from practicing your religion.

There is no law to prevent a coach and his player from parrying before a game. There is a law preventing fascists from denying others free expression of their faith….including your faith.

I see some more of that Atheist fascism and hate going around.

Too bad, it was a perfect opportunity to educate the citizen on a number of standard misconceptions about operating procedures in the fire service. Even if the protocol is that all citizen complaints are referred to the Chief, the Officer should have engaged rather than ignored the citizen. It was an opportunity to inform him that fire apparatus have to be driven around on a regular basis to keep their drive train and suspension in tune, the crews need to be familiarized with every commercial building and road in their jurisdiction, driver training is always occurring on such runs, and crews usually buy from various vendors to foster good public relations.
Did note that the diesel engine was NOT running while tithe FFs were shopping which is protocol in many jurisdictions. Citizen should be thankful for that cost-saving measure.
This should not be national news.

Just to add my voice: I am beyond livid, I am beyond betrayed.
Since you cannot leave a comment at the Republican Party website, nor will Boehner’s site accept any comments from non-constituents, i will say it here in this limited forum.
I CANNOT TRUST ANY REPUBLICAN ANYMORE. YOU ARE ALL LIARS. I WILL NEVER VOTE REPUBLICAN AGAIN.
Obama's already planning on tax increases without congress.
Why do we have a congress any more? It's certainly not a check on the other branches.

Enjoy, but be civil. Because we know they are taking names.
As Sean Connery stated in the movie "Untouchables" "WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO! When you open the box on these guys they won't quite until one of you is DEAD.

Too bad the Obama oligarchy has been actively supporting and funding V15 and Hertzog in the upcoming Israeli election. Kinda knocks the legs off the “bipartisan” stool, doesn’t it?
Susan Rice bears a striking resemblance to Captain Renault…

Isn’t it time for Christians to cease the gratuitous PC and ecumenical lies, and bluntly state to the world that the Mahdi in Islamic escatology is actually the AntiChrist described in Revelation? That Islam is the Satanic sworn enemy of Judaism, Christianity , and western Christian civilization as well documented in the Qur’an and the Haddiths? And the mysterious absence of the US (eagle’s wings) in the escatalogical accounts of Jerusalem’s siege is now explained as we witness our elected and unelected oligarchs sell out Israel to their Muslim masters despite the wishes of the American people.
How is it that in the first 1700 years of the church, Popes and Crusaders demonstrated superior enemy identification skills to that of our 20th and 21st century Ivy League overseers?
BUt as you point out, we are witnessing the fulfillment of Biblical prophesy in our time. Yet Romans 13 does not prevent us from resisting tyrants and evil men.

We have met the False Prophet and his name is Mohammad. We have met the followers of the AntiChrist and their name is ISIS. Just waiting for the son of the Dragon to appear.

This is one of the greatest fallacies of Massachusetts Department of environmental protection. There is no difference in the amount of petrochemicals hydrocarbons and other material that is swept into the storm water system by normal runoff then there is captured by snow. Dump it in the harbor where the runoff is discharged during the rest of the year. Boston Harbor is still one of the most polluted harbors in America
Easy there Chadred…apparently you have forgotten that BHO is a magna *** laude graduate from the Brian Williams College of History.

Gee Liam I am just as entertained by good song and dance movies too. So if you want to follow your own political philosophy why not eschew the action films for musicals? There’s always room for another Gene Kelly. Why not put your mouth where your foot is? Oh, uh.. Well I guess you do that already.

Because all people of faith have a right to PUBLICALLY display and speak about their faith. We are not a closet society. Suppressing faith in the public square is suppressing freedom of expression. We Americans don’t allow that kind of tyranny.
Although it appears that we are getting soft about protecting our freedoms.

So by denying the display of all religious symbols in a military cemetery, is the state not endorsing atheism? That is in violation of the establishment clause by your own flawed logic.
