    • Did Paul have a choice to live or die?
      By disciplehelovestoo · Posted
      Jesus did pray that "this cup" be taken away from Him, but what exactly "this cup" was is not clearly defined in scripture, at least to my limited knowledge of scripture.  tradition says that Jesus wanted to be delivered from the cross; but that doesn't make sense to me at all; if He had wavered on this most important part of His ministry, he would have been in unbelief about God's plan for the redemption of man, and therefore in the sin of unbelief, and no longer fit to be the sacrifice for all transgressions of the law for all time.  personally, i believe what Jesus was asking to be delivered from was having to watch the people He died for reject Him as He hung on the cross; i think He wanted to be delivered from watching them choose eternal death as He gave His mortal life for them.   Clarke's commentary on Mat 27:46 and Psalms 22:1 proposes that the correct translation of Psalms 22:1 is along the lines of  “How astonishing is the wickedness of those persons into whose hands I am fallen!”; thus indicating that Jesus' focus while on the cross (and therefore in the garden when He prayed) was the same as during His ministry - on others rather than Himself. God's sacrifice as Jesus stands alone in my mind; there is no requirement for anyone else to give their life in addition to Jesus - so i think Paul may have simply missed God's leading about having to go to Rome to die for the gospel's sake; and we don't know from scripture how Paul did die - we only have tradition to suggest that he was martyred... ok now; drop those rocks!!!
    • Trump tosses Univision reporter out of rally
      By Butero · Posted
      If you are opposed to illegal immigration, what would you do to put a stop to it?  How would you restore law and order?  Trump gave a plan and you criticized it.  Then you took issue with my suggestion of how to get illegals to leave on their own.  What would be your plan?  I hear people on the other side claim they want to fix everything by simply making illegals legal, which amounts to  rewarding law breaking.  Now, I am willing personally to consider an alternative where we allow guest workers if they will come forward on a case by case basis, if there is no pathway to citizenship for them.  I would be ok with that, but then I would want to stop the anchor baby practice and make sure we have strict voter ID laws everywhere.  I am not really as hard on illegals as Trump is, but I have no problem with his plan, considering the fact they are law breakers.  We don't have to do anything for them.  After all, they are criminals.  OK.  Sexism offends you.  Are you offended by the scriptures that make it clear that the husband is to rule over his wife?  Are you bothered by the scripture that suggests it is a judgment on a society when women rule?  Are you bothered by the New Testament reference to how Sarah obeyed her husband Abraham, calling him Lord?  My view is, whatever the Bible says is my view.  If scripture says something I don't agree with, I am the one who is wrong and I have to change my opinion to come in line with God.  That is because I don't see this as a collection of letters but the Word of God.  How do you view the Bible?  You say you saw how people were effected by Trump's bankruptcy.  Fair enough, but this happens all the time.  The law does allow it, and businesses take advantage of it all the time.  Do you suggest we have bankruptcy reform?  Would you prefer we have something like debtors prisons?  I don't believe Trump is an economic genius because he is rich because of the bankruptcies, but again, you are placing a standard on him I doubt you do on others.  Finally, given that you say you are for small government, why aren't you supporting Rand Paul?  He would be my candidate if I was a Libertarian.  He is my second or third choice right now.

    • Trump...Surprise attack
      By Painted Smile · Posted
      I do not believe sexism is codified in the bible anymore than racism is.  To claim the bible supports either is to mischaracterize the Bible.
    • Why do white evangelicals support Trump?
      By Painted Smile · Posted
      Perhaps you should read the Libertarian view on immigration,  which in a nutshell is to change the laws to be in line with the reality of the circumstances. 
    • Trump...Surprise attack
      By 19Duggarfan · Posted
      Funny I thought that President Obama, had gotten away with must more than both Donald Trump and President Clinton together, especially since the news media would never report anything negative about him, and hearing jamie foxx defy him along with many others.
    • Ben Carson-There is war on what's inside of women
      By Butero · Posted
      That is exactly what he is talking about Other One, and that is a good way of putting it into perspective.  I also like to point out that roughly half the babies murdered in the womb are female, so the whole war on women thing is nonsense to begin with.  Abortion amounts to a war on males and females.  It is first degree murder. 
    • Why did God create evil?
      By gdemoss · Posted
      There is a lot that can be said for perspective.  Our frame of reference lacks true perspective of Gods ability to deliver one from the evil in the world.  We are subject to evil, calamity, disasters and such the like and have a tendency to think less of God because of them.  Wasn't it God himself whonsaid he would raise up an enemy of David from within his own house?   God is Holy, impartial.  This is displayed in the meeting between Joshua and the Angel of the Lord who when asked if he were for or against them said neither.  God doesn't rake sides and his host of heaven is not partial.  They are merely arbitrators who work all things to the counsel of Gods will. The word punish is a good word to study to help understand this.  We all know that a pun is a play on words and that -ish is a suffix that means that which pertains too.  Punishment is that which is meeted out to balance for sin partaken of.  When Cain slew his brother his punishment was that tge ground that swallowed his brothers blood would no longer produce food for him in abundance as it once had which was perfect for his sin involved envy of his brothers sacrifice being accepted while his was not.  Then we see that Cain had children stained by his sin because they were a new generation of him who God gave many abilities too that would offset the suffering of the sin of their father they might use in trade. It is obvious to me that God full well knew that The Devil would fall before he ever created a single thing.  He knew that Jesus would have to die and be ressurected.  He knew about all the wars and hardships.  He knew how evil I would be. And most importantly he knew that it was all temporary.  He knew that wars would end.  Calamity would lose out to peace and that the whole world would be in subjection to him through his Christ the Messiah.   My persective has changed with time and experience.  In turn I have found that I have learned more about ruling over the evil present in my own house.  I find the beauty behind unbiased judgement of sin between siblings as my Father in Heaven reveals a need for.   Rather than seek the answer of why did God create evil maybe we ought to work on becoming Holy that we might see and rule over evil instead of being subject unto the evil of the day.  Even Jesus our Lord commanded the wind and the waves and they obeyed him. Peace!

      It is personal,  the man offends me in many ways.  As a father to a daughter and a husband to a wife his sexism offends me.  Having spent my career in the same arena as Trump I have seen first hand how prevalent it was in the world of big business.    As a young actuary I was working for a company involved with one of Trump's early bankruptcy events.  I saw first hand how many people were negatively affected by it Finally, he offends me because he is the epitome of what is wrong with politics in the country today. I once considered myself a conservative,  but in today's America conservatives stand for bigger government, more intrusive security measures and less freedoms.  If I am anything it is a Libertarian,  though even that does not fight perfectly.  I have not once supported illegal immigration,  I have given my opinion on the building of a 1700 mile wall and I have pointed out the lie of illegal immigrants and social security.

      no I think he is talking about what is in her womb...    He's talking about abortion and how that subject is dividing the nation.
