If you are speaking in tongues in the assembly  without  an interpreter you are in error according to God's Word.

Geez... TC. Is there anything you do not know?

TC, why wouldn't he run in the GOP primaries. He would have about the same amount of success.

More attention.   Libertarian types who will vote Gary Johnson because of problems with Republican governance are idiots.  Johnson is no different.  It's the same as Sanders supporters.  They listen to rhetoric and fail to research that their chosemln candidate's actions are contradictory to their positions.

This is no different then you who will vote for someone else because of problems you have with
Trump.

You are just as Johnson supporters are

I probably will not vote for President or write myself in because there are no candidates I find acceptable.   If you cannot see the difference,  your lack of understanding is overwhelming.

Whatever..... you are very like him and do not even know it.

Well folks... we have 1 for TC

Homosexuality is not a sin.  Sodomy/homosexual acts are the sin.  Homosexuality is a disorder.

I may be preaching to the choir, and slightly off topic, but I think this bears repeating.  It is very important not to conflate the two.

We don't need to "de-gay" people.  We need to give them support to be chaste.  Just as we need to support any person to be chaste, whether in a marital union or not.

Interesting analysis by Pat Buchanan.

A couple of things really stand out in this article -

This is so spot on-
Quote
What paralyzed the Republicans of a generation ago? What blinded them from seeing and blocked them from acting on the new realities?

Ideology, political correctness, a reflexive recoil against new thinking, and an innate inability to adapt.

The ideology was a belief in free trade that borders on the cultic, though free trade had been rejected by America’s greatest leaders: Washington, Madison, Hamilton, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.


and this -

About Cruz, a prediction: He will not be the nominee in 2020. He will never be the nominee. If Trump wins, Cruz is cooked. If Trump loses, his people will not forget the Brutus who stuck the knife in his back.

MeMyself,
                  I don't think we need to walk on eggshells either. Our household should be such that we talk about God and our views of homosexuality and everything else. They should know this growing up. They should also know that if they ever do feel that way, that they will not be scorned if they open up about it. I speak to a lot of teenagers on my job who are afraid to tell their religious parents, because of fear of being scorned, targeted, or disowned.

I agree that growing up, it should be spoken of openly. It is the Christian parents calling to follow the admonition in Deuteronomy and always talk of godly things vs. sinful and point our children to His ways.

However, once our children are grown, they will choose their own ways...and that is what I was speaking to.

I have a child who is choosing to play the role of prodigal when it comes to God and I *panicked*! I love him and don't want him to face eternity without God or raise a family who doesn't know Him.  I rushed ahead in my fear and it accomplished nothing. Nothing...well, except, hurt and resentment and a wedge between us for a while.

*I* repented. *I* told my son I was wrong in the way I approached him...and I then rested in God and His promises..and little by little, He is showing me that He is there, chipping away at my son's hard shell around his heart.

When an opportunity to speak is made, I take it, believe me! Haha! But, I do so without the fear and only in love.

Pushing love over scorn is always the godly way to go...however, God is a judge. He is the only one qualified to be so, because He is holy and perfect.

Its hard to not panic and push the need for repentance on a loved one that is flying their fist in God's face...but it doesn't accomplish much, other than exactly what you said, Jd.

We have to take a deep breath, and rest, trusting in God's timing and that He will make an opening to talk to them in love about their need for Jesus.

Christian Politics Forum / Re: Hillary is using Dark magic
« Last post by Rella on Today at 09:13:06 AM »
Very true! I thought it hilarious how after his speech the CNN political commentators were nauseated and disgusted. they were using adjectives like dark, gloom and doom to describe his speech.

And their own poll comes out that says 75% found it uplifting.

Trump just speaking the truth. He is our man!

Good will alway win out and withou a doubt, Donald J Trump is the greater good in this contest.
