DeSantis seems tough in some areas and milque toast in others.  I've said this since the 2020 election and I will say it again because I feel it is 100% accurate and time will see if I'm right.  This country will never have another Republican president.  At this point in time, you have to have a few Republicans in office so it at least looks like you are keeping up the charade of fair elections.  They still have to pretend there are checks and balances, even if they now only exist on paper.  But once us oldsters die off, and the White House oldsters die off, the people coming up into office behind them won't follow those anymore and they will reek havoc and start getting rid of groups they don't like wholesale.  Short of a massive revival of actual Christian values, this country will not survive, long-term.  At least not in the form it is now.

Part of the reason that the Church has become a weak and ineffective force to keep certain societal rot in check has been the attitude that we need to "go along to get along."  This is always the wrong way to go.  Doctrinal and theological error should always be pointed out, and it should be done directly.  That is the Biblical prototype.  But in today's society, we are supposed to just accept anything someone says as long as they tact a christian tag on it.  Not so much.  I'm trying, as best as I can to no longer be hateful, but I will always be direct.

I fully agree.

And it is showing up right here on GC.

A major news bomb was dropped and all over Fox last night.... no where else (of course) and that is the memos at Twitter that Elon let out of the bag. NO one cares  ::shrug::

Just like they do not care of Joe's fetishes... And how Kamala got to where she is.... (red knees and all).

It makes me sick because things like

.....Soros bankrolled Colombian LGBT group backing prostitution that received Biden administration grant

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION FUNNELS TAX DOLLARS TO COLOMBIAN LGBT GROUP BACKING PROSTITUTION IN CRIME-RIDDEN COUNTRY

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/soros-colombian-lgbt-prostitution-biden-administration-grant .....

are what everyone wants in this feel good, I'm OK , You"re OK existence we live among.

So they will be kept in office.  ::tippinghat::

Folks, we’ve been robbed. Again. This was a repeat of 2020. They’ve fixed, rigged and stolen the election. First, they robbed us of the Presidency. Now they’ve robbed us of a red Republican landslide. And now they’re trying to blame it on Trump.

This is gaslighting. And we’ve had our election stolen- again.

Unions are fascist, not communist. 

The two things are related, in that they both formed at about the same time, in order to address the same problem (the oppression of workers during the Industrial Revolution).  They are not the same.  Two different solutions to the same problem.

There is the tendency, particularly by those on the left, to identify fascism and Nazism as extreme right-wing philosophies.  In my opinion, they are not.  That depends of course on how one defines the left and the right. Fascism and Nazism are Statist philosophies; both set the government above the individual.  That is decidedly a Leftist trait.  That is true for communism, socialism and progressivism as well.  It is true that there are differences between them, but they are all variants of Statism.  They are all Leftist.

A glorified, transformed body is one that is no longer subject to aging, illnesses, diseases, deterioration, or death. This is the kind of body our Lord currently has. At His death, His physical body underwent a transformation, a glorification following His physical demise [see John 7:39 & Phil. 3:21]. And it was this living form that appeared to His disciples on the mountain, and the living forms of Moses and Elijah—all glorious forms. [Note: “glorify” & “glorified,” according to the Greek, have a wide application.]
John 7:39  Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Given that the Spirit was not given until after Jesus ascended into heaven to be at God's right hand, I would reject any transformation or glorification at His death and place it at His ascension.  And that particularly given His prayer in John 17:5 that would place His glorification at His return to the Father's side.

I find it interesting and not happenstance that when speaking of Jesus "resurrection" from the dead and before His ascension the Greek word ἔγερσις [egersis] is used.  This is from the Greek word ἐγείρω [egeirō] which is the same word used to describe the raising of Lazarus from the dead (John 12:1).  In all other instances when speaking of the resurrection at the end of the age, with Jesus' return, the Greek word for resurrection is ἀνάστασις [anastasis]. I believe that Jesus' rising from the dead is not the resurrection that is referred to when speaking of the "resurrection" in passages such as Matthew 22:28-31, Mark 12:23, Luke 14:14, John 11:24-25, Acts 2:31;4:2;4:33;17:18, etc.  Instead, I believe the resurrection being spoken of in those and all other such passages relates not to His being raised from the dead, but rather to His being ascended to Heaven.

I would point out that in passages such as Romans 6:1-14, it speaks of Jesus being raised from the dead (vv. 4&9) it is the Greek word ἐγείρω [egeirō] that is used. But when it speaks of His resurrection in verse 5 it is not ἔγερσις [egersis]; rather it is ἀνάστασις [anastasis].

All of this suggests to me that there is the raising of Jesus from the dead and there is Jesus' resurrection and they do not speak to the same event.  That tells me that the transformation, the glorification following His physical death and being raised from the dead did not occur until His ascension.

But maybe that is just me.

These words are so true! That's why I'm beginning to think that Trump with some of his "self-centered ways" still is our best choice to combat with what is going on in both parties. It truly concerns me that DeSantis is supported by the middle of the road of the Republican Party~mainly the "Bush Klan".


Slow down, Cally is a good man, who loves God, give him a chance to be himself, we all may earn something from the younger generation behind us. By patiently listening does not mean we may agree, yet it is a virtue we at least should try to put into practice.
