Re: Trump or Pence?

Can I push a different button? Nope. Given the choice of just those. Yep, the left hates him no matter what he does or says. Yes, there are quite a few light-weight, so-called Republicans who need to "grow some." And Democrats will never concede if he matures in various areas, or whatever...

Trump or Pence?

Knowing what we know now about Trump's negatives, IF you could push a button right now and instantly install Pence into the presidency, WOULD you?

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

I don't know that the video blogger's narrative is, at this point, much more than speculation being spun. Read what people who knew him well say - he sounds like a nut in search of a movement to raise hell with: http://www.richmond.com/news/virginia/organizer-of-charlottesville-s-unite-the-right-ral...

Re: Is eternal security part of the gospel?

jpbg: No! I do not believe it is part of the gospel.


Doesn't matter what anyone believes - what matters is what Scripture actually says about it.

Here's a little light reading for you on the topic: http://www.godandscience.org/doctrine/security_believer.html

Re: Transgenders and same sex marriage

jpbg: If a woman were to have a sex change then later get saved and married a man. It would not be sin for eather of them. Why stir controversy over a silly "fringe" issue? But I'll bite, anyway: Assuming we're speaking of a woman that transitions to becoming ("a man") - while g...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

Yet Dr. Heiser does NOT believe Job is older (outtake comments from https://www.nakedbiblepodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Transcript-71-QA7.pdf :) "There are a lot of things in Job in the story and the characteristics of the characters that reflect a patriarchal time period which would ...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

Job was written after the flood and not before. Not necessarily - see my posts and links on that issue, and the book by Hugh Ross on that topic, from about 4 years back: Ross wrote this book: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/512RIth2VXL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg Hugh: "I real...

Re: Well, what about offensive historical public monuments?

The REAL issue is that people are using the baggage of the historical past as an emotional wedge per their present-day politics, in an attempt to cause more fighting and anger - so irresponsible. There can be a civil way to assess where certain symbols and monuments should be put - perhaps in a muse...

Re: Global Warming: Massaging the Data per Desired Results?

But whatever, don't dodge the question at the end of my previous post - how can you know that apparent warming isn't part of a planet cycle that has occurred many other times? And how can you know from a mere 130 years or so of partial data - inconsistently measured, btw. I think it's that people ha...

Re: Global Warming: Massaging the Data per Desired Results?

Morny: Climate scientists do not say that. You don't seem to know even what their claims actually are. READ: There certainly has been a lull, if not for the last two years - but you don't measure a theory with such long intervals by two years: https://www.nature.com/articles/nature22315.epdf?referr...

Re: Global Warming: Massaging the Data per Desired Results?

Morny: What is the climate scientists' response to your question? Do you understand that response? If yes, where specifically do you disagree? The response of many is that warming has happened and is now in a lull. Most believe it man-caused, to varying degrees - with many of those believing it to ...

The Far Left and the Far Right

There is essentially NO difference between the attitudes and thinking of those on the far right and far left - as they are both groups, made up of many segments and rivals, ALL populated by people filled with hate and rage. And not just hate of the activities or beliefs of their opponents - no, they...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

Update 2 / son's media interview: Saw the segment run again, the station had another "blip" edit of peoples' responses to the same questions (about Charlottesville, but separated by the earlier comments segment with clips of the fighting and chaos) - so, the only other word they put up th...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

U777: Did God create right and wrong, and whether He did, is he bound by it? Time is a measurement between events and between things that exist. No events, no physical things - there's nothing to measure. Thus time began with the appearance of physical things. There was an eternity before this time...
