Published January 13, 2016 ∙ FoxNews.com

Scientists have confirmed that the presence of water ice on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

Observations taken by the Rosetta spacecraft shortly after its arrival at the comet in 2014 have provided definitive evidence of the presence of water ice, according to a statement released by the European Space Agency Wednesday.

“Although water vapour is the main gas seen flowing from comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, the great majority of ice is believed to come from under the comet’s crust, and very few examples of exposed water ice have been found on the surface,” it explained.

In October scientists were stunned by the discovery of Oxygen on the comet, a finding that could upend theories about how the solar system was formed.

What branch of the RM were these in?

I believe they're all DOC, not cofC.

And the DoC is about as great a church as the United Church of Christ.

Even though the DoC and the cofC share the same roots, they're a far cry apart from each other now. DoC promotes "marriage equality" and ordains women -  you sure don't see that in many cofCs.

No, and you don't see women preacher/pastors either.

Even well before the women listed in the OP, there were women preachers early in the movement, though. I remember reading about the "three Marys" or the "four Marys" something like that. These women preachers weren't ordained in the Christian church, but were preachers, nonetheless in the early days of the movement. I don't have time to look them up right now, but will later.
I did have this link saved in my favorites, though, for early female preachers in not only the DoC but also the cofC.

An imperfect Christian conservative reviled by the establishment, whom I revile. Super smart, super articulate. Doesn't need a teleprompter. What else is there? Except never wanted babies pulled partially out of the womb and have scissors inserted into their brain stems. Seems like a slam dunk to me. The one that even hesitates to put down such a thing or even supports it is no Christian, but a Godless barbarian in the style of Ghengis Khan (said with a haughty John Kerry accent). But other than that, he could be a swell guy. Nut in the words of the Waterboy, there's aomething wrong with Trump's Medulla Oblongata for EVER entertaining that partial birth abortion was ok. That would be like saying Aushwitz was like a Holiday Inn Express. You can't fix that kind of stupid over time. It is a life long persistent mallady.

I am just beginning my intense study on preaching / prophesying...
I see them in scriptures as two different words with two different meanings!

So how do you reconcile they are the same? ::headscratch::

 Propheteuo: 4395 profhteuvw Propheteuo (prof-ate-yoo'-o);
Word Origin: Greek, Verb
from (4396)
to prophesy, to be a prophet, speak forth by divine inspirations, to predict
to prophesy
with the idea of foretelling future events pertaining esp. to the kingdom of God
to utter forth, declare, a thing which can only be known by divine revelation
to break forth under sudden impulse in lofty discourse or praise of the divine counsels
under like prompting, to teach, refute, reprove, admonish, comfort others
to act as a prophet, discharge the prophetic office

KJV Word Count (Propheteuo #4395) prophesy  28
 



khruvssw Kerusso (kay-roos'-so);
Word Origin: Greek, Verb
of uncertain affinity

to be a herald, to officiate as a herald
to proclaim after the manner of a herald
always with the suggestion of formality, gravity and an authority which must be listened to and obeyed
to publish, proclaim openly: something which has been done
used of the public proclamation of the gospel and matters pertaining to it, made by John the Baptist, by Jesus, by the apostles and other Christian teachers

KJV Word Count (Kerusso #2784)

Cruz is Not a pretend Christian. Donald Trump seems to me to be the pretender.

Mommydi, as I said before, my brotherinlaw's sister in Houston goes to church with Cruz and his family. She says he is a very devout Christian. I'be known this lady all my life. She comes from small town stock and deep Christian roots. If anyone is pretending it definitely Is Trump. Two Corinthians and all. My 9 uear old grandson has more Bible sense and christianity in his little finger. Cruz ain't perfect, neither am I, but there most definitely iis a difference in Trump and not in a good way. It's funny, a real Christian must be flawless ? Ain't no such thing. i not and Cruz ain't but I would take his Christianity any day rather than Mr. Pretender, who was recently for partial birth abortion and probably hadn't been to more than  half sozen chirch services in his life, funerals and all. There is no way that a Christian could ever even in a moment of brain-deadness EVER rationalize that partial birth abortion is OK. The rudimentary foundation for. godly life are totally absent.

As I said I like Trump's Chutzpah, but there ain't no THERE there.

Jaime, I appreciate your kindness in answering, and I do see why you support Cruz. Truly, I do. About 10 years ago, I would have supported him (or someone like him).

Trump lives in a world of contracts. You're dishonest with him? He considers that contract broken and instead of just taking it, he's coming after you.

Please show me the contract that Trump signed with Cruz.

Can't produce one?  Then your point is invalid.

Just because you don't see a valid point doesn't mean there's not one.  ::smile::

I was speaking figuratively, and thought that was obvious. IMO, after reading a couple of his books, and what I've witnessed, he runs his life by the art of the deal. Be that good or bad, he has that mindset. The mindset of negotiating, negotiating, contracts, deal making...like a one track mind.
