Not sure I understand your comment. I am staying the Bible is the only source of truth. You either accept it all as truth, or none of it at all. I think the great danger is people picking and choosing what to follow from the Bible and creating their own truths. Why do you feel the Bible is corrupt? It is historically accurate; there are so many pieces done on this. It is the infallible Word of God.

Of course Jesus is king, but it does matter how we live our lives. Even the demon know who Jesus is. It's not enough just to acknowledge him; who are we to pick and choose what God as defined as truth. Do we know better than him (Job covers this well). We must repent of our sins and do our best to walk in his statures. Not works based of course; it doesn't matter how much I tithe, go to church etc. But its about fighting the good fight and repenting for our sins as we can never achieve perfection.

As my name states, there will be a day where every tongue confesses Jesus Christ is Lord. I just pray I hear well done faithful slave, not depart from me you who practice lawlessness. It is our commission to share this good news with others. Many will reject it, but what joy comes from the few who accept it and our saved. We can not fear the rejection of the world; after all its not up to us who accept it. Only good can soften the hearts of the unbelieving and resurrect the dead man back to life. We are all dead in our trespasses and Jesus Christ is the only way. He is the light the truth and the way; but part of this acceptance is living our lives for Him and not putting ourselves ahead of God.

We are to follow authority, the key is to change the law. But man is of course fallible as well. Just saying, if we don't like the law we should make an effort to change it is all instead of deciding which laws we will obey and which ones we won't. In the end does anyone live a sinless life, of course not. But the effort should always be made to fight the good fight.

1 Peter 2:13-17. "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king"

Took another big hit today...holding the line. I figure if it all goes down so does everything. Funny how TSLA, DJT, GME etc all getting destroyed. Almost as if the DS is pumping endless money in to short these stocks into oblivion.

1 Peter 2:13-15. We have a duty to obey authority. Does that mean most if not all of us speed. Yes. However, if I'm going to speed and I break the law then I'm going to have to pay the consequences of my actions is all. In that context I do believe it matters. If I break the law, speed, and then fight the ticket b/c I don't want to pay it I do think it matters.

But why refuse to answer questions if you were speeding? That's all I'm trying to say. 1 Peter 2:13-15 does say we have a duty to obey authority is all. I know many are distrustful of authority for rightful reasons. All I'm saying is be honest; if you were speeding you were speeding. If you stole you stole; this is a circular argument and judging by responses on here I don't think I'm going to get anywhere with anyone. It all comes down to whether your trust most officers or don't.

Having been "randomly" audited before I can attest to this scumbaggery. Told them it was simply an error on B/D end, spelled everything out. And what did they do? Treated me like a criminal for a $10k documented distribution from a retirement account b/c I was between jobs. Long story short, after providing mounds of paper trails (which they had from the beginning verifying my original claim) I was finally free. No sorry, no hey you were right. Just you have been cleared. Again, error was on broker's end and pointed this out from the very beginning yet didn't matter.

I agree with this to a degree. If you are truly innocent, fine. But if you are speeding, suck it up and pay the toll. Don't waste everyone's time because you want to abuse our rights. We all know right and wrong; you can lie to another person but you can never lie to God. Just how I try and approach things

100% understand what you are saying brother. I'm with you. We must submit to Gods will; he is in control.

I respectfully disagree. I just can't in good conscious stay out of the fight when we have the ability to impact that decision. Does my vote count for much? No. A drop in the ocean but its still part of that change. However, I do 100% agree with you on big government. More power is not the answer and a debate exposing truth would be great just never see that happening; at least hasn't happened to the degree we'd like it to yet.

Tough topic, I think the point I'm trying to make is something like this: Trumps position on allowing states to decide would be much more popular with the masses. However, at what cost? Are we sacrificing appeasement to the world over God? This is where my conflict and conviction is.

On the other side of the coin it could be argued if he doesn't take this stance then gives ammo to other side to stay in power and more evil is committed. Same analogy as would it be ok to lie if Gov was rounding up Christians in your home to protect them (yes I used a different analogy than ww2 to avoid another angle). You get the point.

So that's how I'm approaching it. I still 100% would have to stand on this hill that all abortion is murder and willfully allowing "others" to decide whether they desire to sin is still blood on my hands if I can contribute to rectifying that change. However, again, as a realist I recognize that all men are sinful creatures and Trump will not be perfect as will be the majority of the world made up of nonbelievers and self professing Christians. Am I still behind him 100%, yes. All we can do is pray. Everything after all is in God's control.

I must admit this is a dark day to see more down votes for your comment then up votes. I stand with you. You are either against abortion or for it; no in-between. You cant serve the world and God at the same time. Look up Matthew 6:24-26

Doing nothing is a sin of omission. I would look at James 4:17 too; we can't pass the buck to others. Truly anyone who calls themselves a Christian must be against abortion. You are either all in or not at all; we can't pick and choose what we want to follow....again, sad to see so many who are ok with the state choosing.

I will say this doesn't change my stance on Trump the plan as we all are sinners short of perfection; but I will pray that he and others see the error of their ways repent and move for real change.

True; I didn't put the whole verse in you are correct. 1 Timothy 6:10 for the love of money is the root of all kinds of evils. I read out of ESV but as you likely know every word (and Iota) matters so important to clarify that fren Thank you.

Amen, no man is perfect and still some things I dislike about him but definitely happy with him fighting for freedom of speech and decency. I pray perhaps he's come to Christ. Don't know enough about him; but will keep praying for him.

Exactly...the law requires you to have your dog vaccinated against rabies. If you have cats, most rescues will not let you adopt a dog until verification all cats are "up to date" .
I've stopped taking my cats to the vet for this very reason. Quite frankly if indoor, what's the point. But you'll be shamed for not caring for your animals if you take this approach. Money money money...

Pharisees I believe are Synagogue of Satan. They stand for everything against God. Pride, ego, greed. They are driven by their own ambitions, never putting God first. They are in the Bible to portray exactly what we should not be. I believe through them the Antichrist will be ushered in. They have eyes and chose not to see, ears yet choose not to hear.

Again, the Bible is very clear about giving us imagery and examples of how to live for Him and not for ourselves. Despite witnessing all the miracles the Pharisees still chose their "traditions/interests" over God. That is the ultimate slap in the face. Duet 6:4 "Love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul and all your mite."

At the core of all sin is mankind choosing themselves and the world over God. The pharisees and what I believe is now left of them today embody everything evil stands for through this very action.
