Matthew 10:28 "fear Him who is able to DESTROY BOTH body AND soul in fiery hell"
Eph 3: 20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory
So then torture - in fire and brimstone is the portion for the wicked in the lake of fire.. But they will in fact be destroyed in it after some time of suffering - in the end "both body and soul".
Even Satan himself - reduced to ashes.
Ezek 28 “By the abundance of your trade
You were internally filled with violence,
And you sinned;
Therefore I have cast you as profane
From the mountain of God.
And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the stones of fire.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;
I put you before kings,
That they may see you.
18 “By the multitude of your iniquities,
In the unrighteousness of your trade
You profaned your sanctuaries.
Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you;
It has consumed you,
And I have turned you to ashes on the earth
In the eyes of all who see you.
19 “All who know you among the peoples
Are appalled at you;
You have become terrified
And you will cease to be forever.”’”
From the article: "We can only conclude that the committee members or staff did not want to risk having to deal with data that did not fit their construct. Which is another reason why the study is so flawed. What went on in preparing the report is clear: The staff picked up the signal at the outset that this study was to have a certain outcome, especially with respect to the question of whether the interrogation program produced intelligence that helped stop terrorists. The staff members then “cherry picked” their way through six million pages of documents, ignoring some data and highlighting others, to construct their argument against the program’s effectiveness.
In the intelligence profession, that is called politicization."
Impugning the character of patriots who had to face moral dilemmas everyday, by weighing the balance of the safety of Americans and what was morally right, is reprehensible. Senator Diane Feinstein knows this report is a fallacy, yet she released it because of a personal vendetta against an agency she believes spied on her. That's going from professional to personal with an extremely high risk of endangering the lives of our intelligence officals and all Americans. She should be forced off the committee when the new Congress takes office and censured for her petulent and careless behavior.
I wouldn't want the CIA angry at me, but fortunately for Ms. Feinstein, the people in that Agency still understand what it means to be a patriot and faithfully serve their nation.
If we can't get Congress to put term limits on the office, maybe they should at least change the law so that you must retire from office at the age of 65, or 70. It seems when people have spent their entire lives in office, and faced with their own mortality, begin forgetting about the people they serve, and instead worry about their own legacy and how they will be remembered. They have a level of narcissm that is dangerous for the rest of us.
