  • On Church and Tradition

    "Tradition was actually "Scripture rightly understood."

    The Roman Catholic church offers a scriptural explanation for its doctrines and traditions but like many, I simply do not see many of them reflected in scripture. It would be intellectually dishonest for me to say I see: Mary Co-Redemptrix, Absolution, Purgatory, repetitious prayers, just to name a few, in scripture. I believe many Roman Catholic doctrines and traditions would be foreign to the Apostles.

    Conversely, Sola Scriptura is not the answer to Christian unity and true doctrine, otherwise there would not be thousands of Protestant denominations and independent churches.

    Jesus' prayer that His body be one is yet to be answered.

    Be careful what you wish for. Consider our own human history. What does history tell us when primitive and advanced civilizations clash. Think Cortez, the American slave trade, the jewel in the crown, etc.

  • Detroit Recovers - America Goes Under

    02/07/2015 10:18:22 AM PST · 14 of 21
    JesusIsLord to Kaslin
    Pensioners are not the bad guys. I don't know if this applies to Detroit but many pension agreements are based on both the government and the employee contributing to the employees pension fund. What happens all too often is that the government puts IOUs into the fund. This is precisely what is happening to our Social Security system.

    Consider: Many people who joined the voluntary military did so based partly on the promise of compensation and fringe benefits. After serving 25 years, would it be right for the government to say, "Oh, we've decided to reduce your pension by 25% and we will not honor the promised VA fringe benefits, etc. " Broken promises! Should the military retiree be viewed as the bad guy here?

    Consider: A person works 45 years paying into social security all of those years. Every year the SSA sends the annuitant a summary of their projected benefits. When it comes time to retire, the annuitant is told that the benefit will be reduced by 35%. Keep in mind that in surplus years, the government spent all the surplus money and put IOUs in the SSA fund. Broken promises! Is the SS retiree/annuitant the bad guy?

    Consider: A person works 45 years paying into a Roth IRA each of those years. The Roth IRA, created by government, promises that money withdawn will not be taxed by the Feds. When it comes time to retire, the retiree is told by the government that it is giving his Roth a haircut because it needs the money. Broken promises! Is the retiree the bad guy here?

    I contend that the pensioner who worked in good faith for government or the private sector is not the bad guy!!! Government is.

  • The Priesthood in England - Conclusion

    01/23/2015 6:17:51 AM PST · 3 of 4
    JesusIsLord to Jandy on Genesis
    "Priesthood" is an interesting subject. The RC argument is based on tradition and their interpretation of scripture. It's all about the interpretation. The following are a few scriptures on priesthood. Read these passages in context. Ask yourself, who are the "us" and "you" being spoken to in these scriptures? Are they only "ordained priests" - or are they all Christians hearing letters written to the churches? You decide.

    "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father." Rev 1:5-6

    "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9

    Yes, Christians can and do fall to weakness and sin. Thank God for His amazing grace. All I know is that Andre’s music and anointing has blessed my life. I thank God for the man and his ministry. Christianity is not about being perfect. It’s not about performing to meet someone’s standard. It’s not about keeping the law of Moses. It’s about being saved by grace, through faith, with the blood and righteousness of Jesus, our Redeemer. It’s not our righteousness that saves us, it’s Jesus’ !

    "Don’t think I have to be Jewish to observe the Sabbath. Got a scripture reference for that?"

    Answer from Paul (Romans):

    "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit (pneuma).”

    The Apostles declares in Romans 2:25-29: “For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit (pneuma).”

    Salvation is not about one's natural state, birthplace, birthday or parents. It is not about the physical act of circumcision - that is meaningless. It is about spiritual birth. It is about becoming a new creature through an inward work of circumcising the heart. What this is saying is that one's Jewishness (circumcision) means nothing if one isn’t saved, if one is saved then his Jewish upbringing has benefited him by somewhere bringing him into contact with the truth (Christ). I don't in any way believe this is talking about the physical act of circumcision but rather one's Jewishness. Jews were known as "the circumcision." This was a title that really denoted "Jew." We know it cannot be the act of circumcision as it avails nothing.

    JesusIsLord to PROCON

    Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

    Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

    I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

    Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

    Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

    Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

    Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

    Judaism is anti-Christian

    One needs only to read the Jewish Talmud, which is the foundation of all Rabbinical teaching, to see the vitriol hatred of Jesus the Christ, and through association - all Christians.

    The Description of Jesus in the Talmud

    Jesus was born out of wedlock (Mishna Yebamoth 4,13) to His mother, Miriam, and her lover Pantera (Shabbat 104b). She is said to have been the descendant of princes and rulers, and to have played the harlot with a carpenter (Sanhedrin 106a). Jesus spent time in Egypt, from where He learned magic. He was a magician who deceived and led Israel astray. He mocked at the words of the wise, was tainted with heresy, and was thus excommunicated (Sanhedrin 107b). He called Himself God, also the Son of Man, and said that He would go up to heaven (Jerusalem Taanit 65a). He was “near to the kingdom” and had five disciples (Sanhedrin 43a). He was tried in Lydda as a deceiver and as a teacher of apostasy (Tosephta Sanhedrin X, 11: Jerusalem Sanhedrin 25c,d). He was executed in Lydda, on the eve of Passover, which was also the eve of the Sabbath, by being stoned and hung, or crucified (Tosephta Sanhedrin IX, 7). For forty days a herald proclaimed that He was to be stoned, and invited evidence in His favor, but none was given (Sanhedrin 43a). He (under the name of Balaam) was put to death by Pinchas the Robber (Pontius Pilate?) when He was thirty-three years old (Sanhedrin 106b). He was punished in Gehenna by the means of boiling filth (Gittin 56b, 57a). Finally, under the name of Balaam, He is one of those excluded from the world to come (Mishna Sanhedrin X, 2).

    In addition to these horribly erroneous and blasphemous statements said of Jesus in the Talmud, there is yet more to be found in the Jewish scholarly studies known as the “Toledot Yeshu” (“History of Jesus”). In this strange parody of the life of Jesus, there are similarities with what is said in the traditional Talmudic references, the only difference being that the commentary is less restrained and more elaborate. Here is a sample of what is said of the Jesus in the Toledot Yeshu.

    The Description of Jesus in the Toledot Yeshu

    Mary, who had been betrothed to a man named John, was seduced by her neighbor, Joseph ben Pantera. When she discovered she was pregnant, John left her and went to Babylon. When Jesus was born, she tried to pretend He was the son of John and even attempted to give Him a Jewish religious education. Jesus, however, began to reveal the evil that would later mark Him and was extremely rude to His rabbi teacher. The rabbi eventually uncovered the truth about Jesus’ father, but declared that Mary was not worthy of death because she committed the act unwillingly. Jesus, about thirty years old and now declared to be a bastard, fled to Jerusalem. There he secretly “stole” the letters of the Divine Name which had been written on the Foundation Stone of the Holy of Holies in the Temple – by sewing them under his skin! With the power of the Divine Name, He began to heal the sick and eventually gathered 310 young men as His followers. He also performed such “magic tricks” as enabling a millstone to float on the Sea of Galilee and causing clay birds to fly, and even occasionally flying Himself. At one point He was chained to an ark of the law in a synagogue in Tiberias, but His followers, called “insurgents,” rescued Him and He fled to Antioch.

    Eventually, Yeshu arrived in Jerusalem on the eve of Passover, riding on a donkey. There He was arrested and examined by the “wise men.” During this time He claimed to be the Son of God and the Messiah, and cited many of the traditional messianic prophecies as being fulfilled in the events of His life. Condemned as a blasphemer by the “wise Men” (the Romans are not mentioned), He was put to death by hanging on a tree and was buried by the time of the evening prayer. On the third day, His “insurgents” declared to Helena (queen at the time!?) that they could not find Him in the tomb. At that point, the gardener revealed that he had removed the body and cast it in a nearby pool. Whereupon the “wise men” recovered the corpse, tied cords around His ankles, and dragged Him through the streets of Jerusalem. (Source: Zion’s Fire)

    Obviously, these perverted statements regarding the person of the Lord Jesus Christ have turned millions of precious Jewish people away from their own Messiah. The same kind of hatred for the Lord Jesus Christ displayed when He was brought before Pontus Pilate is obvious in the Talmud and the Toledot Yeshu. (See the full account in Matthew 27 – Mark 15 – Luke 23 – John 19). Beloved, this is why we must seek to preach Christ and Him crucified to the Jewish people. Their understanding has been darkened, and their eyes blinded to the truth by their traditions and centuries of rejection of the prophetic truths regarding their own Messiah. We see bumper stickers pasted on automobile bumpers that ask us to, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” I often wonder if these dear folks who place these stickers on their cars even understand the Millennial implications of this statement. In one of David’s “Songs of Degrees” we read, “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee” (Psalm 122:6). The day is yet to come when Jerusalem will know peace and live in peace. That day will not come until the Lord Jesus Christ sits upon the Throne of David as King of kings, and Lord of lords. That day will not come until the Lord Jesus Christ establishes His Millennial Kingdom upon this earth, and the Jewish people are back in the land, not in national pride, but in individual and national repentance. In the meantime, we may well pray for the peace of Jerusalem in biblical context, but must also pray fervently for the conversion of the Jewish people. The Jewish nation will not know peace until she know the Prince of Peace. Likewise, the individual Jew will not know peace until he or she knows the Prince of Peace.

    Does my comment mean that all Jews are anti-Christian? I no more believe this to be true than to believe that all Germans are responsible for the Holocaust.

    The fact is that liberal Jews in Hollywood, the major TV networks, government and education system are generally anti-Christian either overtly or simply by virtue of their values.

    If this offends then let me offer my world view concerning the Jews who are anti-Christian: "Many of the people of Israel are now enemies of the Good News, and this benefits you Gentiles. Yet they are still the people he loves because he chose their ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." Romans 11:28

    The One I love and serve is a Jew. The church (body) to which I belong was built on the Apostles, who were Jews. I own my life to a Jew and I look forward to them seeing Jesus and His body for who we are.

    Philly police are UNION. 'I seeee nooothing...I knooow nooothing..." Our nation made a huge mistake by allowing public servants (police, teachers, fire fighters, gov employees) to unionize. Believe it or not, FDR warned us against unionizing public servants. Conflict of interest and conflict with the public will has been repeatedly put on display by our unionized and so-called public servants.

    It amazes me that our representatives at every level continue to thrown OUR money at the these greedy public servants - particularly the teachers racket.

    In any other business, the efficient, innovative and productive survive. With public unions - the opposite is true.

    Why would anyone be surprised with the actions of the DOJ or any part of our government for that matter? The lunatics have been running the (political, education, media) asylum for a long, long time. Many if not most of our politicians and appointed officials consider a government "of the people, by the people and for the people" a nice cliche - nothing more.

    The nation was created to be a constitutional, representative republic. We have devolved into a nation that is now governed by fiat. Executive orders now create laws - it's illegal! Similarly, federal and state courts now "create" laws - it's illegal! And again, we have our federal government running rough shod over the states - dismissing entirely the 10th amendment, i.e., ""The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people" - it's illegal!

    The problem is that we have a Congress that is beholding to political party above the people it was elected to represent. Our Congress has illegally given power to create law to the President and the Court(s). They have done this for political advantage (read for party or self advantage). Until we have a Congress that places the will of the people over party or self, we will continue to devolve as a republic.

    Obama and the Demoncrat party WANT to go over the cliff. It's a WIN WIN WIN for them. Here's what Obama and the Demoncrats achieve by going over the cliff:

    (1) Taxes are raised on MIDDLE and UPPER income people, which is what Obama really wants.

    (2) The military budget is cut, which is what Obama really wants.

    (3) The liberal Demoncrat news media will sell to the same gullible folks that the GOP is to blame for going over the cliff. The sheeple, who aren't interested in facts and truth, will believe what they're told. As a result, the Demoncrats will have another GOP bogeyman to run against in 2014, which is what the Demoncrats really wants.

    Obama knows that there's no shortage of stupid in America. They know that they can pin just about anything on the GOP with the help of their propaganda/media arm.

    Even if the GOP caves on taxes for the upper income, Obama will manufacture a reason to decline the offer and blame the GOP for the impasse.

    (2)Defense spending is drastically cut, which is what they really want.

    (3)Looking toward the 2014 elections, the Demoncrat media will blame the GOP for going over the cliff, which is what they really want.

    Unless the GOP goes into attack mode against the Demoncrat party, liberal media and federal court judges - it will continue to decline in numbers, power and influence. What's actually needed to stem the tide is to put all those who've violated their constitutional oath (and there are many) in jail. Unfortunately, this will never happen with the current Congress.

    Our constitution means nothing to the majority of those elected to office today. Party, ideology and the desire to stay in power are the only things our "leaders" understand or care about. With the help of corrupt, traitorous, activist judges - the constitution has become something that can be circumvented and/or interpreted to mean whatever those in power want it to mean.

    JesusIsLord to RoosterRedux
    Rice blames the intelligence community, i.e., the CIA. Under oath before Congress, CIA Director Petraeus stated that the CIA informed the administration "from the beginning of the tragedy" that Benghazi was a terrorist attack.

    Let's give Rice the benefit of the doubt. Let's say she wasn't privy to the CIA report on Benghazi. Let's say that she was a good soldier reading a script that she received from "someone" and that she believed the script to be accurate.

    Well then - Congress should be able to get to the bottom of this matter with just a few questions.

    Question #1: Who gave Rice the script?

    Question #2: Who expunged "terrorist attack" from the script AND who directed that person to do it?

    Question #3: Who is responsible for Rice's "video" narrative and on who's authority was that narrative determined to be the cause of the attack?

    Benghazi will likely be used as a back room "bargaining chip" during fiscal cliff negotiations. Don't be surprised if our Congress chooses to not pursue this serious matter.

    The demoncrats and a their propaganda arm (the drive by media) have successfully defined Republicans as a party of rich racist white guys. Blacks, Latinos and other minorities will always vote against the "rich racist white guys." Also, a tremendous number of the electorate WANT socialism and policies/laws that destroy the nuclear (traditional) family.

    Those who hate Christ hold many high places in government, media, education and business. They have successfully turned the hearts of many Christians against the faith of their fathers. To God's enemies I say, there is no future in fighting against God's Son. One way or another America and His enemies will learn this lesson.

    "I know that nothing ... will prevent God doing what He promised to do".!

    Psalm 37 -Of David.

    Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

    Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

    A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace. The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.

    The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken. Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the Lord upholds the righteous.

    The days of the blameless are known to the Lord, and their inheritance will endure forever. In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

    But the wicked will perish: The Lord’s enemies will be like the beauty of the fields, they will vanish—vanish like smoke. The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously; those the Lord blesses will inherit the land, but those he curses will be cut off.

    If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be blessed.

    Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off; the righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever. The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks what is just.

    The law of his God is in his heart; his feet do not slip. The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, seeking their very lives; but the Lord will not leave them in their power or let them be condemned when brought to trial. Wait for the Lord and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

    I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a green tree in its native soil, but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found.

    The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

  • So What Do We Do? Out Liberal the Left?

    It would seem to me that we have reached a tipping point where the majority of Americans now embrace racism, sexism, abortion on demand, homosexuality, fornication, insurmountable debt, euthanasia and socialism. We don't need Rev. Wright damning America - we have damned ourselves.

    Jesus said that you would know a person by his fruit, i.e., by his actions. The same is true for nations. Our fruit is rotten. The fear of God is the "beginning" of wisdom. We have no fear or respect for the Living God.

    We have loved and embraced what God hates. It's by His grace that we have been preserved as a nation. How much longer can we expect to enjoy His grace while we kill babies, enable perversion, call evil good and call good evil? I suspect not very long.

    If history is a teacher, let's remember the civil war. We view this as a historic event, which it is. However, it also provides us insight into how God operates. We can also see God's hand in the ups and downs of ancient Israel. Bottom line: when a nation does evil God patiently offers it time to "repent", i.e., change and go the right way - His Way. In the case of the civil war, I believe that the cries of oppressed slaves over many generations were heard and after much long-suffering the answer from heaven was terrible and bloody. God is not mocked. What we sow - we will reap - unless we repent.

    Still, there is hope in the story of Jonah and John 3:16.

    "I bet you couldn't sell that to Allen West."

    Unfortunately, blacks like Allen West are the extreme exception. In the case of Obama and the 2008 election, nearly 96% of blacks voted for Obama. This is akin to a racial group voting "virtually" en masse for the same candidate. I will be surprises if we don't see a repeat of this voting behavior in 2012.

    "I received a revelation: truth and facts did not matter...Obama's black skin trumps everything."

    I'm surprised that Lloyd Marcus is surprised. 78% of Catholics voted for Kennedy and 68% of Irish Catholics voted for Kennedy. Great percentages of people, both black and white, vote their tribe or culture first and foremost. Blacks, more than any other group, vote their skin color. Sadly, issues and policy are secondary for many people - especially blacks. The Demoncrat party is the blind leading the blind and there's no shortage of stupid in America.

    This is from the Demoncrat prayer book: "It's better to reign in hell than serve in heaven!"

    "... modern Republican Party’s utter disregard for economic justice, civil rights and the social safety net. "

    Why do we allow intellectually dishonest racists to teach in our universities? If this man really knew his history he would acknowledge that in modern times it was Demoncrats who were the most ardent haters of equal rights - can you say George Wallace and the Jim Crow Demoncrat south?! Economic justice - rhetoric doesn't put food on the table and the government doesn't produce anything - it only takes. A job is the best friend that any man, black or white, can have to meet his economic goals. Social safety net? If the ship sinks, everyone drowns. Is this reality really that difficult to understand?

    Jesus recognized and called out those who stood against truth, against Him - so should we.

    The context is that he’s speaking to his disciples. He’s answering a question posed by them. Therefore, when his answer uses the word “you” without “you” being further qualified, it’s fair to say that he means “the disciples”, i.e, the church.

    Matthew 24 - Jesus talking:
    3Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
    9Then shall they deliver you (the church) up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
    14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
    15When ye (the church) therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (the temple), (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
    16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
    17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
    18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
    19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
    20But pray ye (the church) that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
    21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
    22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake (the church) those days shall be shortened.
    27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
    30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
    31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect (the church) from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    The good Pastor asserts that "nothing needs to happen for the rapture to happen."

    With all due respect, scripture states that the following will preceed the rapture: a covenant of peace between Israel & her enemies, which will be broken, a tribulation, abomination of desolation in the TEMPLE in Jerusalem, a great tribulation, then the RAPTURE.

    As far as I know, a mosque sits on the temple mount - but no temple.

    I think some of us focus too much on flying away. Every day, about 150K people leave this earth via death. Let's focus on preaching the good news to a lost and dying world!!

    Most Demoncrats and a few Republicans believe that lying, cheating and stealing is a perfectly normal political strategy. E.g., Benghazi, Joe Kennedy buying John the presidency, FDR's attempts and successes to usurp the constitution, stack the supreme court - and on and on.

    I pray that the RNC is vigilant in preventing the Rats from stealing this election. Also, get ready for an October surprise from the lying cheats!!

    In the spirit of Edmund Burke - I believe our biggest problem has been that Congress has abdicated much of its role to the courts and executive and the States have willingly abdicated their power to the federal government. If we could fix these two things, we would be much closer to the government intended by our founders.

    God knows we need a Congress that will start charging treason against members in every branch of government - especially the courts. God knows we need to impeach and imprison a lot of folks.

    Despite Biden's rudeness, I think he handed Ryan his butt!! Joe was articulate, convincing and he made a very, very strong case for his side - IMHO. Ryan was ineffective in refuting Joe's half-truths and was too polite toward Joe and the biased and interpretive (to Ryan) moderator. Paul did not make the case for conservative fiscal policies; Joe did make the case for current Democrat policies.

    Paul - we're dealing with Chicago thug style politicians. We need you to put the rabid lying dogs down. Paul - you're a nice guy and a wonk but nice guys will finish last in this race.

    I'm a Christian conservative voter. Unfortunately, I saw Ryan as being out of his league last night. My concern is that many independents saw him the same way.

Not only should we stop all Muslim immigration, we should outlaw the practice of Islam in our nation just as Germany has outlawed Nazism, the Nazi flag, the Nazi salute and other Nazi things. Germany simply outlawed a murderous and evil philosophy and style of government, which was responsible for the death and murder of millions. We need to do the same with Islam for the same reasons - we need to outlaw a murderous and evil form of religion/government; it’s called Islam!

The source of all our problems is the unwillingness of congress to impeach and try for treason members of our government (executive, congress and courts) who have blatantly violated our constitution - should I go on?

    The varied polls are like our objective (sarc) news outlets. They've become politicized. The race will be decided by a few swing states and yes - it's possible that Obama could win all the swing states.

    As one who votes my Christian convictions, I will tell you that I'm not impressed with Romney's message. His ads and his stump speeches are frankly, weak. He has so much material to work with in Obama but doesn't use it. He should be skewering the socialist narcissistic one; the one who has trashed our constitution and placed future generations into debtors prison; the one with an anti-Christian moral compass.

    If Romney continues to simply "trade" with Obama in debates, ads and stump speeches - Obama will likely be re-elected - IMHO.

    We are well past the days of: "the teacher, the pastor, the priest, the nun - are always right". The folks sitting in the pews need to take responsibility for policing their leadership. The sexual sins that we're seen predominately but not exclusively in the Catholic church is proof that we cannot "blindly" believe or trust leadership. If the Catholics in the pews are not interested in cleaning their house, then they will be guilty of sacrificing their children on the altar of religious pride and stupidity.

    Every priest or pastor who abuses a child should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. They should be shot IMHO. All those who are complicit in enabling these scum must also be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Somewhat familiar with PA politics, I can tell you that Rendell was by far the worst governor that PA has had in modern times. He is in the image of Rahm of Chicago. The only folks who liked him were all those who received patronage from him AND Philadelphia. Like Obama, Rendell didn’t know the meaning of compromise. The man failed to pass a budget each and every year of his 8 years as governor; a record that will likely never be broken. He NEVER signed a budget on time. PA’s supreme court needed to set him straight over this and other areas where he overstepped his bounds. He brought all his Philly cronies or should I say crooks to Harrisburg. Rendell was a demoncrap governor. I think that about sums it up.

    When Peter was imprisoned, the church prayed and interceded for him - and as a result, I believe he was freed to preach the gospel. Let every Believer keep the persecuted body in his prayers and specifically pray that the persecuted be freed to preach the gospel. Let's also pray that the Lord raise up thousands of Paul's from the fields of Islam and Judaism. Paul once thought that he was dong God service by killing and imprisoning Christians - sound familiar? Paul, who claimed to have received tremendous revelation of Christ, prophesied that when the Jew/Israel would come to the knowledge of Christ, it would be like the resurrection of the dead. I say it's high time that Israel take its place in the body of Yeshua the Messiah.

    Like any other ism, system or person that exalted itself above Jesus - it will come to an end.

    "and that would put the US among the armies of the world who will march against Israel "

    The New World is not mentioned in scripture. It is supposition to state as fact the place of the U.S. in the last days.

    Bible scholars, prophetic and otherwise, are being intellectually dishonest to say they know the place of the U.S. (as a nation) in scripture. We are simply not mentioned in the bible. We can surmise, extrapolate and associate our nation with other cities, nations and empires like: Babylon, Britain and the Roman Empire but the fact remains - the New World is not mentioned in scripture.
