So Bill Clinton was the crowing rooster?
“For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mark 8.38
I know Clinton has a bent one, but I didn’t think it could crow three times. It may have on Monica’s blue dress.
That was Nixon.
Did you think that you would get so many crude responses to posting the Word of God on a “conservative” site?
A bent one.
That blue dress saved her life.
How do you count the GOP voting for a non-Christian?
I took this to mean that the mayor of lA had to ask three times to get God back in the platform, and actually it was denied the third time, but he deemed it passed any way.
That never occurred to me...the three votes.
That scares the HECK put of me.
But....what does it mean to an unbeliever who denies three times? Christ addressed it to Peter, who believed not not quite enough at the time.
Like the writing on the wall in the Old Testament was directed toward unbelievers who utterly rejected the One True God, in context, what does this particular warning, directed toward Peter (who believed but apparently, not thoroughly enough) mean?
The new verse for recent events shoudl read (and note, I’;m not tryign to be irreligious- what just happendec at hte DNC was VERY indiciative of what the bible said abotu peter)
“Before Debbie Wasserman Shultz crows three times, Whiny O will deny Jesus 3 times”
We are living in terrible times here and it;s JUST LIKE old testament times when there were righteous kings and Godless kings that took over- right now, we have a Godless king who is trying to take over and fundamentally change ALL the protectiosn we were afforded under the constitution of the United States because our ‘president’ beleives that a society is only great when the peopel give up their consitutional rights and then recieve other ‘rights’ ‘given to them’ by our government- in other words, in whiny o’s mind, (and I mean no disrespect by whiny o- he’s a whiner, he can’t help it- he hasn’t matured yet) it’s now the govertnment’s responsibility to dictate what rigfhts the peopel can have, and wgho can earn what, and who must pay what- Our government, uin the mind of whiny o, is a god- that is why the left is trying to kick out the TRUE God, so that hte lesser god, government, can take over and endow us with ‘rights’ that they deem fit for us- Our TRUE God given rights no longer exist in whiny o’s mind, and our gove3rnment knows better than hte TRUE God, what our new ‘rights’ should be- That is what whiny o meant when he said ‘it’s time to fundamentally change America as we know it’ and that is what makes him a dangerous person and that is what IS destroyign this country’s greatness day by day- every day he is in office is another day closer to complete socialism that he has envisioned for htis country- where the peopel are fully depenedent o nthe government for everything-
He is the exact same ‘irrelgious evil king’ that the bible spoke about, and while thisw country’s atheists might scream bloody hell, this country desperately NEEDS a righteous king to set things back the way they are suppsoed to be before God so that we my once again recieve God’s blessing on this once great nation!!!
First thing I thought of. Not only did they deny God, but they publicly and deliberately did it three times.
Now, while we know it won’t happen with this bunch, remember that Peter was not only forgiven but elevated when he confessed his sin and named Jesus the Christ.
I think this very telling. This will cause a few (and only a few) democrats to question just who they are involved with. I know the yeas that were there understood this. I pray for the others that I know personally that are devout Christians and don’t pay enough attention to politics and still believe that the democrats are just trying to help people. I hope this serves as a wake up call.
Allen Wes5t made the incident into a campaign ad
i never heard a rooster crow at night.and we had plenty of them.
This clip should have been the beginning, then the DNC vote.
that’s what I thought when I heard this on tv last night. Shock, outrage and sadness for them denying God, and His Holy city, Jerusalem.
Cannot understand how anyone who calls himself/herself a christian could stay/vote democratic party. It’s a one-way ticket to a very fiery place: denying God, denying Jerusalem, pro-abortion, pro-same sex “marriage,” equating christianity with other religions, denying our American exceptionalism and foundation as a Christian country...the democrats just keep adding to their sins! Guess they’ve forgotten/disregard that there will be a judgement seat that they will have to face someday! Unless they are like Peter and confess their sins and transform their lives, then they are doomed. God please open their eyes and their hearts to You before it is too late for their souls!
Wasn’t there recently also a parallel where somebody sold somebody for pieces of silver?
I'm starting to think that the Radical Republicans after the Civil War had the right agenda: totally eradicate the Dem Party.
I also thought about the parallels with Christ’s sentencing by Pilate ... there were probably many in the crowd in Jerusalem who loudly voiced their desire NOT to crucify Jesus; in this case, Pontius Villar also went with the “Yes” vote to wash his hands of it...
It was a story of redemption, not condemnation. In The Gospel of St. John Ch. 20, Christ asks St. Peter three times: “Do you love me?” St. Peter three times affirms his love and is told to “feed My sheep.”
St. Peter could have left after his denials, but he came back. The American people have a choice as well. What we choose will make us great or no better than Judas.
The crude responses are upsetting. I really wouldn’t have expected it from FReepers. I wish they could be culled out.
Agree...unless they are trolls. I must say, this observation took my breath away.
So far, the majority of Americans have not turned to God. I pray their eyes are opened so that they can see that they, each one, need him in their lives and in this Country.
“That blue dress saved her life.”
Thanks to Linda Tripp.
What station was it shown on. I believe NBC logo is a peacock.
I’m frequently disappointed by the crudeness of responses here as well as the bitterness and acrimony that is displayed for the Old Right or Goldwater Republican principles or any libertarian nuances. The rabid attack on Akin was an eyeopener and to me was stupidity of the worse sort.
The vote what? The vote was the denial three times...before the cock was to crow. The question is: Was BJC the cock that crowed after the denial?
I was talking about the agenda for the evening, as in order of things that happened, not anything nasty. What was the next thing, event, person that was in the order of events that occurred after the three NOs?
If that’s what people thought, then their minds are where they do not belong.
Shouldn’t this be in the religion forum?
