    And the relevant question to all who profess to be christian (and perhaps others as well) is What will we do with this man Jesus?

  • An unanswered question: Differentiate b/w the never saved & the "fallen out of fellowship" w/Christ

    Robert Burkholder to Laissez-faire capitalist

    to me “never saved” presupposes a person who has not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ—the second part the “fallen away”/”Fallen out of fellowship” seems to suppose one who has heard the Gospel but for whatever reason has not continued in the faith.There is a parable about “seed” and where some falls,and the consequence of the ground upon which it has fallen.

    Democracy doesn’t work— Nuff said— Our founding Fathers —the men who gave us Our constitution recognized that Truth Democracy is the most unstable system ever,leads to Tyranny everytime.

  • A Homosexuality "Fact Checker" for Born-again Christians

    Robert Burkholder to redleghunter

    yes— you did a fair job of it. In my estimation— a man identifies himself by his actions. If a man is born anew -in my opinion— Christ ought be his focus—ought become his identity He will still sin and sometimes willfully— but if he has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and has surrendered to that transformation he can never again identify by what he has died to. I still have a drink —on occasion but I can NEVER enjoy drinking until I have fallen down drunk.
    That former thing has lost all appeal.Before I was born anew I worshiped my fantasies and tried to act them out.Pursued the pleasure —Now I can enjoy a beautiful image and worship the Creator,Not the Creation.

    I certainly am not free from sin— Neither am I self Identified as homosexual. I am born anew—and sanctified by the blood of Jesus Christ.And when I sin— I do repent but do not continue in sin, as does one who identifies him/ her self as homosexual.

    took it and find I agree with most—but not all of his answers. I remain convinced one cannot be born again Christian (born anew/born from above) and claim equally to be homosexual for one is dead to the world as signified in baptism and born anew —a new creation the old things are passed away.But it may all just be a question of semantics.

  • State eyes legal options after Hagel order to Guard units

    And Chuckie Hagel’s Pentagram teaches in Military training manual : “the healthy white heterosexual,Christian, male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, Whereas black homosexual atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege. Hagels Pentagram teaches that minorities often need strong white allys to increase both socially and politically. “ Gotta keep the black atheistic homosexuals in poor health on the Democratic PArty Plantation. and discourage healthy white, Christian ales from enlisting in the Democrats new Armed forces.

    Robert Burkholder to Tailgunner Joe

    The State of ND —misreads the US Constitution and their State
    Law if they recognize what the State does NOT —this is a very dangerous development indeed. For it suggests the National Guard is NOT under the State— but a Federal subsidy.

    I stand with those American Patriots and any Christian who will oppose Chuck Hagel -and the Reprobate In the White House. The individual States under Our US Constitution —a supreme Law useful idiots like Hagel and his bunk Buddy the O are sworn to defend. The Individual State retain power to raise and maintain their National Guard. If the State Constitution does NOT recognize the FRAUD of same sex Infamy as anything other than the dilution of the mark it in truth is.Then the Federal Govt. has NO power over the State to force them to violate States Rights —or their State Constitution.Chuckie has his head up his dufflebag as usual.

  • Supreme Court to hear new case on religion in public life

    Robert Burkholder to Cincinatus' Wife

    I agree with Justice Joseph Story Metaphysical refinements and test of logical skill are out of place. Let the First Amendment decide the flippin case -not Sandra Day O’Connors endorsement test. Let the presedental evidence of the Judiciary Committee Reports of Jan.19,1853 by Mr.Badger of the US Senate Judiciary Committee on the meaning of the Establishment Clause— and use of Chaplains —and corresponding US House Judiciary Committee Report of 27 March ,1854 by Mr.Meacham on the same subject— as compared to the seminal Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States by Justice Joseph Story on the subject of the First Amendment and the general if not universal sentiment in America when the Constitution and (Bill of Rights) was adopted.Even in Bible College we were taught that Prayer is first and foremost a dialogue with God —as such it ought reflect the beliefs and the religious training of those who have called for an invocation of prayer. i.e. if the majority of the City Board are Christian it would be accepted and acceptable that the steady drumbeat of invocations reflect that board. (Not any audience—nor outside interest) The Continental Congress —Indeed the first Congress under our US Constitution seem to have had opened their affairs with predominantly Christian Prayer so the the errant misguided Courts can hang in their ear if they insist the City of Greece NY in any way shape or form has violated the US Constitution —or the First Amendment by their simple invocations.May all the curses of the Book visit those covenant Breakers who would claim otherwise.

    no doubt here that the O’s Muslim Brothers probably did it —and the O’s puppets like Hagel are behind the cover-up.All we need now is some-one from the Sec. of state’s inner circle to insist it was that You tube video that caused her to commit suicide.

    America has heaped to itself teachers. with itching ears we have been turned from the truth—turned to the lie and like
    Jerusalem in the days of the great Prophets we are too proud to even see our sin.For we have told everyone God will NOT see.Or God will approve.

    Robert Burkholder to Altura Ct.

    Diversity is a LIE promoted to protect a LIE. The enemy of my Country and Our way of Life so HATE E Pluribus Unim that they would have the “useful Idiots” gladly believe the LIE and be turned from the Truth.America was established a peculiar people—One Nation Under God.and the enemy would have everyone happy to be a chunk of salad greens covered by a glop of dressing prepared for the consumption of the highest bidder.Diversity is our strength My A__ either we are one body and Americans— or we have been defeated.

    Of Course the O “knew” that his sacrificial sheep were about to be slaughtered. The Green Beret told it true.They are trained to observe,evaluate—and report.Of course those reports were sent up the chain. The Rot at the Top.The “useful Idiots” directing operations for their Despot received the reports and did Nothing.Every time I see a commercial for Charmin Toilet Paper I am reminded of the O because some commentator made the most apt connection between that cartoon bear and his toilet paper and the President.

    In reading the Constitution—and the Debate on the Constitution—and the Manuel for Courts Martial(MCM),1994 edition.
    I note the Second Article of the US Constitution records the Oath required of the President before entering into the duties of that Office. “so help me God” is not included. The phrase seems added by General George Washington to the Oath he was administered,when elected. Setting the standard. The Library of America -Debate on the Constitution parts 1 and 2 ,Bernard Bailyn editor—includes the reasonable letter by Dr.Benjamin Rush who noted that Oaths can be/have been violated by friends and enemies alike. — The MCM 1994 suggests the Oath administered contains the phrase “so help me God!” the Affirmation excludes that phrase. Elliots Debates Vol.3 of the Virginia Convention notes from Friday Jun 27,1788 article 14 speaks of “an Oath or affirmation of a person religiously scrupulous of taking an Oath.” I can only conclude that the Constitution as supreme Law of the land declares an Oath (or Affirmation) is required. The two are distinct. but serve the same purpose. If a man,woman,or ? does not believe in God, or is “religiously scrupulous “ against an Oath acknowledging Mans duty to God
    The framers included a provision that they could choose either the Oath (or the after thought - the Affirmation) It would be folly to require a man swear by that which he disbelieves. The resolution of this tempest in a teapot is not to diminish the Oath by excluding what General Washington added( the acknowledgment of mans being subject to God) Nor is the answer to eliminate the solemn Oath altogether.But to allow the Cadet choose to acknowledge God or to not so do. One need Not do that which is repugnant and attempt to level all religion,or make it a matter of policy to hold all in utter indifference—which Justice Joseph Story published would have caused “universal disapprobation ,if not universal indignation. The enemy
    ( Weinstein and his wailers )misrepresent Article VI by suggesting an Oath including “So Help me God!” constitutes a “religious test” and thereby violates the Constitution.
    else General Washington and others would not have noted the distinction between the Oath and the (affirmation) The MCM 1994 edition notes the distinction. So the AP and all others ought be more clear and report the truth. And if any take an Oath , (or Affirmation) then violate the Constitution or fai to honor that Oath ( or affirmation) the ruling authority ought Impeach. And the people ought insist on such .Like one included in the Debate on the Constitution — “I (too) consider the Oath a sacred thing.” My Military experience and my life experience affirm what Dr.Rush suggested... The Oath is only as good—or as sincere as the individual administered /taking the Oath.

    IT figures both Mike Bennett and Mark Udall are not among the Americans. Michael Bennett wrote me when the 17%make the american People feel the pain Communist dialectic shutdown /pony and prostitute how in DC was over that my Government had failed me. His actions as Senator suggest he is part of the problem -but I made a vow to NEVER vote for another Democrat Ever unless Jesus Christ came to me and commanded it.
    so I am not numbered among the beguiled.

    Robert Burkholder to Mechanicos

    agreed— the myth seems advantageous for the armed agents to promote. Even too many Courts will promote it —while at the same time preferring the Truth be censored. The NRA editorial in this months magazine quotes the legal position that No cop nor agent of the Govt. is under any obligation by law to protect anybody. Which underscores the import of our second amendment a right NOT granted by the Bill of Rights —but given by God.
