  2. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    But seriously, we'll never hear Hillary, Bernie, or Trump talking like thus...... http://www.ijreview.com/2016/04/585806-ted-cruz-answered-abortion-question-with-story-about-his-daughter-it-left-the-audience-silent/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=floating-sidebar&utm_campaign=Sharing
  3. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    I've already made my decision........
  4. Was Simon the Sorcerer a Genuine Believer in Acts 8:13?

    #5 Being "in the gall of bitterness" he repented and basicallyentreated for forgiveness after Peter had rebuked him. That's remarkably humblefor a man who had just been very exalted, powerful and proud. I think he made his first mistake as a "baby Christian" and passed the test.
  5. The Curse was a good thing?

    My thinking on this, is that if we had no pain, no thorns and thistles, sweaty faces, no trials and tribulations, suffering or death, we would be in a state of Godless utopia. We wouldn't need to pray or even need God at all. So, yes, I think these things can work for our good. The very nature of "nature" (hey..I made that up) hehe, shows us all that, yet nature displays good and perfection too; it teaches us there IS something much better than the troubleswe have in this world. Just my .02 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Isaiah 45;7
  6. WARNING THE WICKED IS LOVE

    Absolutely. The Bible says he is "love", "the way", "the Truth", "the Light", the "I AM", the "Prince of Peace" the Mighty God. the "Everlasting Father", the "King of Glory"( I particularly like that one)....And how can the "evolutionists and atheists" get that? By seeing "the light" in us shining before them. They must "see" the righteousness of God part along with the "you are a sinner" and the "you're on your way to Hell" part.
  7. WARNING THE WICKED IS LOVE

    For one thing, he openly demonstratedit on the cross....and we are to tell them the whole deal. 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Three parts to the Gospel...."sin, righteousness, and judgement. If you don't preach it all, you ain't preaching the "whole counsel".

    At least he got the first one right........ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0nFNoPPjtA
  9. HOW SHOULD WE VOTE?

    Back in the Book of 1 Samuel God chose a man "after His own heart" who later disobeyed and took a census, thencommitted adultery, conspiracy, and murder; and God KNEW David would do all that whenHe chose him.The good kings Solomon and Hezekiah did some stupid stuff too. Brotherman,no politicianis going to be perfect. Unlike God, we are not omniscient in our choices and even if we were,thosewe trust with some kind of responsibility will STILL sin. But even at that there IS a difference between the "godly" and wicked. I'm not voting for some Ahab or Jezebel who clearly denies God in words and deeds and wants to establishTotalitarianism, push the "LGBT" agenda, advocate the wholesale slaughter of the unborn,disarm our citizens so they can persecute us to the fullest, and neither will I vote for a playboy casinoowner who admitshe'sdoesn't need the forgiveness of God and has no real principles. I like a man who will at least admit, "I was a sinner and Jesus has saved me by grace" (Like the Cruz's do). I assume youbelieve your preacher, and otherbrothers and sisters when "profess" Christ? They all sintoo. Do you always "walk the walk"? I certainly don't.
  10. HOW SHOULD WE VOTE?

    "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."[1] One of the 4 has a proven track record of doingjust that, my friend, and I'll give you a hint: it ain't the two communist/socialist/totalitarians or the casino owner.
  11. HOW SHOULD WE VOTE?

    How should we vote? Would you "vote in" a new pastor which preached some kind of heresy? What if he believed abortion is OK? So why would we supportsome reprobatewho said he believes in a "woman's right to choose"? And this thing about Republicans being "establishment"? I look at a man's track record, his VOTING record if hehas beena legislator. I was a registered "Democrat" until Bill Clinton showed me what Democrats are OK with and I went down to the courthouse and re-registered as a Republican. Republicans TEND to be FOR the right values. Do they all? Of course not. But if you vote for some independent, he is NOT going to be elected POTUS. Here is my Republican governor signing a new bill into law, is he perfect? NO, but will you ever see a Democrat doing this, not likely. I am a business person, but I do NOT vote for the person I think will benefit the economy; I vote for people I believe will try to do what is RIGHT because if we do what is right, then free enterprise will take care of the economy without the government's help. Stepping off soapbox now. ...and yes, I voted for our present governor......... http://www.lifenews.com/2016/03/28/florida-gov-rick-scott-signs-bill-to-defund-planned-parenthood-abortion-business/ ....one more thing. I don't vote "Republican" just to be voting Republican anymore than I would go to any Baptist Church just because it's a "Baptist Church"
  12. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    Really? smh
  13. So is anyone...

    People whodevelop allergy become sensitized to it after the first sting. Keep an epi pen on you at all times and be careful. You can go into anaphylaxisand die. I allowed a guy, once, to put several hives on my property. His wifehas developed asevere allergy to the bees. Not a good profession to be in for him in that respect. That's what you can do, Happy, if you need pollination for the garden. Youcan charge rentand a few jars of honey; just be careful.
