That's a hilarious bit of judgment coming from a "Circus-tent Christian." Every "Christian" church has its man-made add-ons and errors. There are no exceptions. The more any group claims to have it "straight from God's lips," the more you can bet that they do not.
I don't think you truly understand Paul's mission, or the nature of his letters to the various churches in the middle east, Asia minor, and southern Europe.
Even though more people will die by your failing to do anything? Wow... talk about negligence in the face of crisis.
You are confusing FACTS for TRUTH. TRUTH is a personal concept and can and does change as your knowledge and perspective change. FACTS never change.
The Good news of the kingdom and Gods king is this---- At Har-mageddon, Jesus brings Gods kingdom rule to the whole earth. Satan is captured and abyssed for 1000 years. Loved ones resurrected, food overflowing the mountains, a child will play on a cobra hole and no harm will come. The lion will eat beside the lamb-perfect harmony amongst all of Gods creatures. The earth will be transformed over those 1000 years to a Eden( paradise) as God intended and still does. All motives of mortal man will be out of love first--not profit like today, no aging like today, no wars, fear, pain, cancer, deformities, mental illnesses, diseases, sickness, starvation, greed,etc,etc Gods kingdom is a cure all. Its mankinds ONLY remaining hope.
The problem with your self accepting ignorance is that when I look out into the universe, I see the same glory that you see. When I look at a flower and see its' beauty, you will see its' beauty also. My reality and your reality, even though you claim to ignore it, drives us to the exact same knowledge of God. Your self denial of reality will be completely ignored in your eternal judgement. Like the law says, ignorance of the law will be no excuse. That applies to everyone on this planet, even the blind who can not see what you and I see.
The quote from Matthew doesn't condemn all judging. It condemns hypocritical judgmentalism where the one passing judgement on another exempts himself from his own standard of judging. Remember Verse 5 above says FIRST take the plank out of your own eye, and THEN you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
Of course it's a value judgement. All life has value. Innocent life should ALWAY take priority in the mind of a responsible adult.
I had so much hope
It's often not even the norm for soldiers depending on where you live, let alone for human beings in general.
I'm still pissed about the human trafficking involved with the battle of bloody brook.
OK US person here so that explains it
Or it could be revealed as superstition just like every other religion you don't believe in. You're not the first person to say something like this to be proven wrong and you won't be the last
As you worked w/groups, I'm sure you saw leaders emerge.
FOlks added it up, so if the bible is true, it has a set timeline. This is the same way we can pinpoint the time the mythic flood was claimed to happen.
There are two sides to the coin of human potential. Neither negates the other.
Fifty-teen brazillion genders, guys!
I like that one.
That's interesting. I'd like to hear more about that.
Complacency is not always the worst thing in the world if you are content with one another, but if you are not take the initiative to speak up, male or female.
I am not so sure about this. And I won't claim I know everything about the topic. But I do know that black women are also targeted by the police and they are incarcerated at nearly double the rate of white women. I also know that there were many unarmed black women who were also being shot dead by police that we never heard about while we were beginning to hear the stories of black men who were shot by police unreasonably.
The first is equal to saying "I don't believe you ( theist claim that God exist). The second is equal to say "No you are wrong." The second is a positive claim and has a burden of proof. The first does not.
Sexuality is hard wired, you get no say in it. Even if you are bi you can't stop being bi even if you never act on it. You will always be bi.
He never even got to invite her to his dirty kitchen!
Oh, we agree. The thing is, beauty, like morality, has changed over time. Therefore, the standards of both are subjective specifically for the current timeframe of the current society.
Classrooms being official school functions, you are correct; however, teachers also do not have the right to use the classroom as a bully pulpit to belittle and ridicule religiously held beliefs which may be shared by one or more of his or her students either.
I've been watching that one! I can't wait to see how it turns out! GO FFRF!
Its fair to say we need science to find a way of stopping Ebola, prayer is not going to stop it otherwise it already would have stopped it. The same with every disease. When was the last time an outbreak of a deadly disease was stopped by prayer? That said, desperation and fear take over these situations I?m sure and if the ill gain some comfort from praying I don?t see the issue with it unless as has happened more people are put at risk because they had to get to a church to pray when they could have prayed at home.
Hey buds. Dijon mustard and Mayo for me
i mean, the alt-right hates a lot of people TAD would think of as Alt-right, such as peterson and his youtube ilk. The alt-right just hates a lot.
The both are smarter than you so
I was raised Catholic in Quebec in the sixties and I cant remember a single time being told by anyone, including the priests that hell was for anyone other than evil doers.
Call it what you want....he didn't serve and has no business criticizing the war record of anyone who did. And my prior assertion about the far-fight smearing the service records of others for political purposes still stands. For the record I did NOT vote for John Kerry and didn't support him. However the Swift boat allegations were discredited and shown to be for political purposes....many of those questioning Kerry's war record were not anywhere in the vicinity during the time and lace he was serving. The attacks on McCain about the Forestall tragedy, as well as his time in a POW camp are all political smear tactics from the far right.
Behold. The mighty call of America's national emblem, the bird that defines freedom: The Bald Eagle.
I literally eat like a billion slices of bacon a day.
