Rubio is not qualified to be president. I don’t care what Bill EgO thinks.
I believe a “false” prophet can still predict some true things. We’re just not supposed to worship him.
When a ruler acts within the boundaries of Gods permissible will, they are to be accorded respect and deference.
Could you be so kind to show the opt-out language from any of those passages?
I assume you are aware that Paul, Peter and Jude wrote during the time Nero was in power. In fact, Paul was imprisoned by the government as he was commanding Christians to obey the government. Dittos with Peter. He was under persecution while also exhorting the Church to obey. They both knowingly and willingly were executed by the same government they exhorted the Church to fear and obey.
They have been promulgated by excerpting selected Biblical quotes and ignoring the whole counsel of God.
Fine, what do you make of your words in view of Nebuchadnezzar, who was no doubt the most powerful and tyrant ruler in world history. Here is what the prophet Jeremiah wrote:
Jeremiah 43:10-12 'Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: "Behold, I will send and bring Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will set his throne above these stones that I have hidden. And he will spread his royal pavilion over them. When he comes, he shall strike the land of Egypt and deliver to death those appointed for death, and to captivity those appointed for captivity, and to the sword those appointed for the sword.
Or this passage about the same violent man
Jer 25:8-9 "Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: '...I will send and take all the families of the north,' says the Lord, 'and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, against its inhabitants, and against these nations all around, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, a hissing, and perpetual desolations.
So the Apostles, under an incredibly wicked and corrupt ruler told Christians to fear the government; we have a wicked and powerful ruler in Nebuchadnezzar who was called a "My Servant" by God; we have Isaiah 10:1-4 teaching that God will raise up wicked rulers to, in this case, be "the rod of My anger". We have Saul, Israel's first king, chosen by and empowered by God who really was a bad king and ended up consulting the underworld. Then we have you, who seems to be able to have special revelation that says that you can fear some and ridicule others.
Who do you think is the more wicked ruler - Paul's Nero, or our present Obama and possibly Romney?
Eccl 10:20 Do not curse the king, even in your thought; Do not curse the rich, even in your bedroom; For a bird of the air may carry your voice, And a bird in flight may tell the matter.
Sound advice when living under persecuting rulers.
Even birther's sainted Vattel drew wrote natives and natural born citizens were interchangeable. The first Congress itself went against Vattel's idea a natural born citizen must be born in country when it passed the Naturalization Act of 1790 and Washington signed it into law. That itself shows the definition is not immutable but actually alterable even in the earliest days of the Republic.
So we have native born = natural born per Vattel, we have native born/natural born can be defined by law and legal precedent per the first congress's and President Washington's action.
Under modern law Rubio was native born, he was not naturalized, he's eligible.
If offered the VP slot by Romney, Rubio would be smart to turn it down. Obama will be reelected in 2012, there's no sense being associated with a losing ticket.
How about Cain/Santorum?
That would be like writing “The Sky Is Blue.”
I stand corrected :-(
Although it’s hard to imagine anything worse, a RINO could actually do even more damage.
Excellent points, all of them, Ps 144.
I would add the arguments of the Declaration of Independence, a document that spoke to Christians, that also sought to demonstrate when it is just and right to overthrow one government in favor of another.
***Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security***
David appears to have gone out of his way NOT to fight against God’s annointed king, Saul. Yet, Jeroboam got a green light against Rehoboam when Rehoboam chose to enact terrific burdens on the people.
“suggest sending directly to the candidate.”
Thanks Psalm. It’s what I do now and it works on a number of levels. You don’t have to support orgs/PACS that don’t embrace your values or are going to waste your donation, you can pick and choose those Conservatives who just might win and you get really nice thank you notes!
We need to remember that there are three branches of government and focus like a laser on that which really matters next year.
I like it, bring Pennsylvania into play.
yep, he killed his chances the night of the first debate with that assinine quote about people not having compassion for declining to tuition for illegals.
He was done that night and knows it.
Rubio would be better served waiting; there remains serious questions as to his ability to meet Constitutional concerns. He can do what Reagan did....drum up support for Constitutional conservatives and gain experience and recognition as well. Then, we can see what happens down the road.
