    Can't you just accept that God doesn't have to have the sun in place in order to have a literal 24 hour day in operation?
    You are trying to create mystery where Scripture is very clear in what it says.

    That is a lot to fall upon you and your wife like that. Thanks be to God we don't face such things alone and He's there for us even if we aren't thinking about it or can't see Him in action at a particular moment.
    Praise God your wife is better and you are both home now. I pray the bills may be less than expected and the Lord will provide the funds to pay them.

    Ok, I admit it, I'll be glad when everyone runs out of fireworks.

    No doubt this carries meaning. These people don't give major prepared speeches without very carefully choosing their wording.
    Obama's hatred for Putin has driven American policy in a bad direction with Russia, has forced our European allies to take steps against Russia they didn't want to, and has not only given Russia cause for alarm, but caused great divide among and within our European allied countries.
    Under Obama, America has pursued an adversarial stance towards Russia. Putin is likely hoping Obama won't take a step too far before he leaves office and that perhaps the next American president will pursue better relations with Russia.

    Dabney was an astute man whose warning of dangers coming went unheeded and have proven correct.
    Checking up on the political news after the Supreme Court decision that all States must grant and accept homosexual "marriage", it was very clear how much the so-called conservatives have shifted to the Left over the years.
    Some Republicans were actually claiming the reason they lost the last election was because they nominated a candidate that was "too conservative": meaning Mitt Romney! Mitt wouldn't even qualify as a Moderate, he's too liberal for that, so he's certainly not "too conservative"! Yet that's the mindset of many in the Republican ranks.
    Republicans were all over the news saying it's time to leave the homosexual "marriage" issue behind now. Many, even if they said they didn't like the way the Court handled the issue, proclaimed forcing homosexual "marriage" to be a good thing. They tried to declare homosexual "marriage" a matter of liberty and equality and thus "conservative"!
    Along with these same lines of reasoning, many have been advocating for Republicans to drop the so-called "social issues" (which basically means anything that might involve morals, the idea of good and bad, right and wrong). What they advocate for is what many Republican "conservatives" have already done; dropping social issues and calling themselves conservatives based upon their economic views and calls for more military engagement around the world.
    Those pretending to be "Reagan conservatives" today wouldn't even think of adopting half his platform because they consider such today as extreme right wing.
    As a testimony against the so-called conservatives of today, liberal presidents of the past were to the Right of them in many ways, including such liberal icons as FDR and JFK.
    Notice even there, in the time of FDR and JFK, conservatives claimed to be against them but eventually became like them and are now to the Left of them.
    Our politics is so much smoke and mirrors and the news media, as well as the entertainment media, do their part to keep the illusions in play.

    Exodus 3:17
    And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

    Ronda, I join in prayer for your healing and relief from the pain. In the sermon on the mount Jesus said, "when you fast", which implies He expects this to be something we do and from personal experience and testimony of so many others I know fasting does make a difference in conjunction with our prayers.
    Rosie, I pray your heart will function well and good, that you may have a safe trip and blessed time in Michigan.

    Exodus 3:15
    And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

    Yes, we still have some limited freedom and we should be using even that limited freedom to get the Gospel out while we can in such manner. I pray the Lord will bless the seed you scatter.
    Hitler was a "Christian" in that he was a Catholic but he certainly wasn't a Christian in terms of being a biblically born again follower of Christ.

    Hindus persecute people of any other religion throughout much of India. Many Christians lose their families, their villages, everything due to this sort of thing as the Hindus beat, attack, threaten until the Christians leave. On some occasions the Christians are killed.
    In areas with Muslims there are many confrontations between them and the Hindus.

    That guy is right on the money.
    Persian power was long ago. The most recent to control India was the British. When the British dismantled their empire in the region they did just as mentioned in the video. They created artificial nations with artificial borders designed to create chaos and weakness. The conflict between Pakistan and India is a result of this, as is the current conflicts in the Middle East.
