  1. Ahead of a potential announcement by President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency and reallocate billions of dollars to pay for a border wall, House Republicans representing congressional districts that are still recovering from hurricanes say they’re opposed to the plan. “Our district is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey,” Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, told ABC News. “I hope that they can get those [funds] from somewhere else.” Rep. Buddy Carter said that there’s “no question” Georgians are still recovering from Hurricane Michael, and urged the president not to redirect any disaster relief money from the Peach State to cover the border wall. “As a result of Hurricane Michael, in southwest Georgia in particular, we’ve had devastating impact on our crops and in order for the farmers to recover and to start planning for the next cycle, then they need that disaster relief as soon as possible,” Carter, R-Georgia, said. “There’s a need for disaster relief. No question about it.” https://abcnews.go.com/beta-story-container/Politics/house-gop-urges-trump-redirect-disaster-relief-money/story?id=60311793
  2. The deficit is at the highest it has been in six years.

    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.. No one can "prove" God exists. We are saved by grace through faith. This is a deep confusing subject for many. My advice is to start with the Gospels and study the purpose of Jesus and what his words mean.

    The number one thing to grow is to read scripture with understanding, and believe wholeheartedly what it says.

    Do you pray to the Holy Spirit?

    I cannot find scripture that directs us to pray to the Holy Spirit. If you know of scripture to this effect, I would love to study it.

    Ok, you do what you want, but I will stick with what Jesus says. Have a good evening.

    I read your verses. They back up what I said. Ephesians 5:20 New International Version (NIV) 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. John 15:16 New International Version (NIV) 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. Acts 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

    Because Christ told me to pray to Our Father which is in Heaven. I can do so in Jesus's name. But Jesus told me to pray to God the Father.

    What do you mean "not really." I posted Jesus's own words and you say "not really?"

    Luke 11 King James Version (KJV) 11 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

    Do We only want older Theologians here?

    I really like and respect you. If we have areas of disagreement, so be it. It is not our disagreements which show who we are, but how we handle them.

    Section 8 and food stamps.

    Personally, I wouldn't want my kids to learn about God at school. That is my responsibility. Schools get so much incorrect, I sure wouldn't trust them with my children's religious instruction.

    I thought I was saying the same thing. But, maybe I was not clear. I think we are on the same page. Text can be hard sometimes YSIC

    Best thing I read all day.

    Sorry, I thought I was able to elaborate how I felt as well. I will bow out.
  19. I don't. All I can do is tell what the Lord has done for me and what Christ has done for us all. We do not win souls by points of view.

    Agree. Those that have greater knowledge should not have to dumb down so that others can keep up. That being said, those with more knowledge should always be willing to help others to understand in a loving manner, that does not put down those with lesser knowledge. Those who have more knowledge are there because they have put in the study and the prayer. In no way should they be asked to diminish their light.

    are travel pictures on fb/instagram a sin?

    There is a huge difference between posting a picture of a dog and posting a picture of a half naked woman. From looking at your past threads and posts, I am beginning to believe you are just pranking us.

    are travel pictures on fb/instagram a sin?

    The reason I joined fb was to post my pictures. If ever there is a fire or natural disaster, I can always get to them. We travel a lot, and I have actually had people tell me that they enjoy my pictures/ Don't put burdens on yourself that don't need to be there. Life is hard enough already. God Bless
