    President Barack Obama says he still believes that Donald Trump will not become president of the United States and suggested that Trump will lose popularity as the election grows more serious. "I continue to believe that Mr. Trump will not be President," Obama said. "And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people." The president made his remarks during a press conference in Rancho Mirage, California, during a US-ASEAN summit with Southeast Asian leaders. During his press conference, Obama said he believes that foreign leaders were "troubled" by the notion that Trump could become...

    The Remnant Newspaper ^ | 8/18/15 | Father X
    A few weeks ago alarm bells went off in my head when someone forwarded me an excerpt from an English-language translation of a sermon he preached in the Pope's recent trip to South America, relating the loaves-and-fishes event to the Eucharist. Let me explain. Around two centuries ago the liberal Protestant scholar Gottlob Paulus (1761-1851) started what was to become quite a popular trend in the heretical German circles of higher critical biblical scholarship. Paulus wanted to recognize some historical foundation in the Gospel accounts of our Lords life and ministry; but his Enlightenment rationalism meant excluding all supernatural, miraculous...

    Several years ago I heard someone make the statement that "To help someone accept Christ, just show them that they already use faith in their everyday life, and explain to them that all they have to do is use the same faith to believe in Jesus." Well, I didn't know why at first, but that statement just didn't seem to ring true, especially in light of what the Bible actually says about faith. So, I began to search it out more carefully, and that's how I came to realize that there are actually two kinds of faith, and that they...

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows President Obama attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 44% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. A presidents job approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the presidents job approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 50% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) at least somewhat disapprove of...

    In Mark 9:17-27 a man brought his son to Jesus disciples and they could not help him. Jesus told the man to bring his son to him and the man said to Jesus "If you can do anything have compassion and help us." What God can do is never the question. For with God all things are possible (Luke 1:37). The question is what can you believe. Notice Jesus took the focus off of what God could do and put the focus on what the man could believe. In other words Jesus was saying you take care of your part...

    Catholic Online ^ | 11/6/10 | Deacon Keith Fournier
    There is a Latin maxim that addresses the centrality of worship in the life, identity and mission of the Catholic Church; "Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi". The phrase in Latin literally means the law of prayer ("the way we worship") is the law of belief ("what we believe"). It is sometimes expanded to as, "lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi", further deepening the implications of this truth - how we worship reflects what we believe and determines how we will live. The Church has long understood that part of her role as mother and teacher is to watch over worship, for...

Jesus was threatening their power, and they wanted him out of the limelight quickly. They were hoping to ridicule and mock him....

"How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?" Funes said.

    If my life does not match up with what God's Word says about my life, the problem is not God's Word. The problem is me. For generations now the church has been systematically molding and shaping scripture to fit the experiences of man.

Let me give you an example. All through scripture we read of God as a healer of the physically infirmed. He is...

    African Americans, Hispanics and Republicans All Believe: IN GOD America was founded on Biblical principles, and God is undeniable in our heritage.

Res. 78] Republicans voting for: 87.6% Democrats voting for: 13.4% Ten Commandments This allows each State to decide whether or not to display the Ten Commandments in public buildings....

    "Oh, sweet mother of Gaia!" former Vice President Al Gore exclaimed, upon discovering he had endorsed "maverick" candidate Howard Dean for president. "That wasn't what I meant to do at all," Gore, flanked by his wife, Tipper, told a hastily-called news conference. "I guess I was confused by the ballot," Gore contended. "I had a list of the nine dwar -- er, candidates running and I guess I just slipped up and marked the wrong one, darn it! "This is the kind of thing that could happen to anyone," Gore continued. "Particularly our seniors, now so hard-hit by President Bush's...

    "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)" 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 (KJV) When we're living in our physical bodies, we're absent from the Lord. We can talk to him and have a relationship with him, but we can't see him. We follow his commandments through faith and we keep pressing toward the goal to be with the Lord, through faith. We can't see him, but we know he's there. That's faith, we walk by faith and not by sight....

    Expect the unexpected - don't believe everything you hearSo far the third Gulf War since 1980 has contained several surprises. By Christopher Bellamy 23 March 2003 The first was that instead of a discrete, even prolonged, initial air campaign, the opening strike was an "opportunity target" a meeting of five leadership figures including Saddam Hussein himself. The fog of war still clouds what happened. Saddam may have escaped by half an hour, may have been injured or may even have been killed. We still do not know. There were two good reasons for not having a heavy air campaign...
