  • Who are the Elect mentioned in the old and New Testaments? [Ecumenical]

    Feb 12, 2014 | PhilipFreneau
    This is a discussion about the term "elect" or "election" found in the bible. I believe the elect are a combination of the remnant of Israel from the days of Christ and the apostles, and the holy men of old. I base this on several direct scriptural references: This verse implies Christ is the elect: "Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles." (Isa 42:1 KJV) In these verses Israel or Judah is the elect, but could also be interpreted...

    Christian Post ^ | 01/26/2014 | Anugrah Kumar
    For whom did Jesus die? For the sins of the entire humanity or only for the elect? This was the topic of a live debate between Messianic Jewish apologist Dr. Michael L. Brown and Alpha and Omega Ministries Director Dr. James White on RevelationTV.com Friday evening. The issue boils down to what the intention of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit was in Christ going to the cross, said White, who heads the Phoenix, Ariz.-based evangelical Reformed Christian apologetics organization, as the debate began Friday at 9 p.m. EST. "Jesus' death on the cross was a covenantal death,"...
  • Will Annapolis council strip mayor-elect Pantelides of key powers? [Republican = Political)

    Maryland Capital Gazette ^ | November 11, 2013 | JACK LAMBERT with Elisha Sauers
    Mayor-elect Mike Pantelides’ honeymoon as the new chief executive of Annapolis might end before it begins, as City Council members say that next term they plan to revisit legislation that would strip the mayor’s office of much of its power. Alderman Ross Arnett, D-Ward 8, said he will introduce a charter amendment to move Annapolis to a full council-manager form of government. This would create a position similar to the current city manager, except that the official would report directly to the City Council, not the mayor. He or she would also manage all department heads. The mayor’s post would...

Democratic Alderman Ross Arnett of Ward 8 tells The Capital he will introduce a charter amendment to move Annapolis to a council-manager style of government.

    The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.” The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended. Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights: "The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to...

    I have often pondered why the Liberals, Progressive, Socialist, and Democrats are so quick to dismiss all possible Republican candidates. Just this morning it came to me, an epiphany if you will. The reason is because Liberals, Progressives, Socialist, and Democrats are desperate to find a reason to rationalize re-electing Obama that goes beyond the weak Obama is awesome argument. Obama provides a very low bar for executive experience, leadership, intelligence, and the oath to uphold the Constitution. Obama supporters first need to convince themselves and then persuade others that no matter how ignorant Obama reveals he is there is...

Going back and forth, Angle’s campaign has been critical of Reid’s appealing “to the faithful,” and the Democrat has accused his Republican challenger of being unable to separate church and state.

    Carol Browner, who headed the Environmental Protection Agency under President Bill Clinton, has been named by Barack Obama to be his Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change. This new and undefined office could give her broad influence over economic policy. That is a frightening prospect, not merely because of her participation in a group with overtly socialist ties, but because of the way hostile foreign powers such as China are manipulating the modern Green movement to serve their own national purposes. http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=1051A58C-1F0D-4574-AFF6-C283D4D6FE83

    In the first speech of his "whistle-stop" tour to Washington, Barack Obama talked global warming to a crowd of shivering Philadelphians who braved 18 degree (sub 10 degree wind-chill) temperatures on their journey to the 30th Street Train Station. It's hard to believe that, given the arctic-like temperatures the northeast has suffered through this winter, the president-elect didn't instruct his writers to reword this passage from his "historic" speech: [my emphasis] "Only a handful of times in our history has a generation been confronted with challenges so vast.

    As Inauguration Day approaches and Barack Obama prepares to assume his first term as president, some in Congress are hoping to make it possible for the Democrat to not only seek a second term in office, but a third and fourth as well. The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill that would repeal the Constitution's 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office. Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., earlier this month introduced the bill, H. J. Res. 5, which, according to the bill's language, proposes "an amendment to the Constitution...

    Just how dead is dead? Exactly what can a dead person do? And you were dead in your trespasses and sins... - Ephesians 2:1. The Greek word here for "dead" is the word nekros which means "dead like a corpse." As far as his relationship to God is concerned, man is a lifeless corpse, unable to respond or even make a single move toward God, unless God first brings this spiritually dead corpse to life. He is dead in trespasses and sins. It is a very strange kind of death because while dead, he is nevertheless up and about...

    How Do I Know If I Am Elect?Stephen D. Doe When people first begin to learn about the biblical doctrine of election, one question that often occurs to them is, “Am I elect?” And the more they think about whether or not they are elect, the more uncertain they become. So, if you believe in the doctrine of election, how do you know if you are elect? The answer is really quite simple: You continue believing in Christ. “But,” you reply, “you didn’t answer my question. I want to know if I am elect.” So I will ask: Do you...

Republican Senators like John McCain and Trent Lott have called for his dismissal. Nearly every Democrat in Congress believes he should be fired. Even neoconservatives like Bill Kristol have turned on him. But the question isn’t whether Rumsfeld should be fired – it’s who replaces him? Whoever replaces the Secretary will hopefully lead the Iraqi operation in a new direction that it...

    Does God So Love the World? by: John MacArthur Love is the best known but least understood of all God's attributes. Almost everyone who believes in God these days sees Him as a God of love. I have even met agnostics who are quite certain that if God exists, He must be benevolent, compassionate, and loving. All those things are infinitely true about God, of course, but not in the way most people think. Because of the influence of modern liberal theology, many suppose that God's love and goodness ultimately nullify His righteousness, justice, and holy wrath. They envision God...

That policy allowed Washington to support the European diplomatic initiative toward Iran without fear of being blamed for sabotaging negotiations by threatening the regime’s existence....

    Europe is in big trouble. It’s economies are stagnant – jobs aren’t being created, and today the unemployment rate in Germany is higher than it was on the day Adolf Hitler took power. The continent’s demographics are catastrophic. The birth rates are so far below replacement that in 30 years there will be more than 70 million fewer Europeans alive than are alive today. And with the exception of Great Britain, Europe no longer has the military power to defend itself. And when Europe is in trouble, it gets very, very nasty. Anti-Semitism is always the canary in the mine,...

Instead, at 8:01 p.m. California time, everybody, I mean everybody, all the way to Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," called it for Arnold Schwarzenegger. And while the easy win may have been...
