  1. The force intervenes! Do Reformers wear "black"? Best scene eva!!! Ever notice that Siths vs Jedis the Sith have so much better kill ratios than Jedis?
  2. In the military when all recruits enter Basic they are called "Rainbows". They are not yet in uniform or solidarity as they demonstrate individuality from all walks of life. I sometimes muse and wonder exactly how does a true Christian walk in life? Perhaps a Christian boot camp may help others walk the walk and talk the talk? But you know as my fellow Calvinist we walk and talk like Robots! We can't be lost because we are just acting out the programming [Script~ture] of our Creator! In all seriousness from a Godly perspective we can be lost as Jesus came for the Lost Sheep, finds, and looks after them Matthew 15:24; Ezekiel 34:11. Which leads to the question, can one be a Christian and not yet born again? Can people "play" Christian? I think the evidence of such as demonstrated by Liberal denominations answers that question. So important to Emphasize the will of God rather than our own will which leads us away from God into the temptations of the evil one Matthew 6:9-13; James 4:13-17. God bless, William Ya, sometimes I forget to add the wiggly thing ~Q for LGBT~Q. I gave up adding the long list of sexual identities. Here you go LGBT~A-Z 🤣 I'm ready to be persecuted now by Grammarians because after all many a Christians perished before a burning faggot at their feet!
  3. When debating those that promote LGBT I am known to describe myself as one "born one way that now identifies another". Of course I'm speaking of regeneration but it is humorous to me letting others presume to think I mean sexual identity. Likewise, I can be a really sarcastic person that really pushes people that try to play on racism. Being of mixed race I in self-humor play both sides of the race card. I think it self-amusing to make others apologize for their stupidity.
  4. I often suggest that in this life the earth is the closest to heaven some will ever come and the earth is the closest to hell some will ever come. To answer your question as to which is "better" hell is better for some than heaven and heaven is better for some than hell. Theologically, the Creator of heaven and hell has predestined the Elect which are His to an eternity with Him, and He has passed over the Reprobate leaving them to themselves. So the question I ask you is from the perspective of a Reprobate. Is ordaining what the Reprobate want "better" or "worst"? That is, giving them up to themselves?
  5. The Left has to create issues otherwise they are forced to address real issues. Less than 2% of the population is dictating our culture. If Lib/Dems are forced to actually debate the real issues in America there is no chance of them winning any future election. Instead they must create false narratives such as identity politics and fuel racism as well as segregation. The very things The Dems were historically defined by.
  6. Satan knew that men would follow Jesus if He performed miracles to win them [make stones into bread]. The irony is that Jesus stated the very same thing in Matthew 16:4 "An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” So he left them and departed."
  7. Care to elaborate more? I see no indication at this point in the Gospel records that Satan "was on" to the redemptive plan to take place on the cross. If anything I hear Satan's mockery through other people saying why don't you save yourself? Matthew 27:40. Even backing up a little before hand when Satan entered Judas Luke 22:3 perhaps Satan's actions [in his mind] would cast doubt upon Jesus being the Son of God as He was to be crucified? I think we should remember that we have historical hindsight here, I imagine the types and shadows as God's plan was brought into fruition or full light wasn't so obvious without faith. Then again, Isaiah gives us a pretty good picture of what was to come. Perhaps Satan's lack of faith blinded even him? Psalm 2 1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, 3 “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” 4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. 5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, 6 “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” 7 I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.” 10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
  8. Among other reasons. For example Pilate was governor and tasked with keeping the peace. I'm pretty sure that any uprising etc would reflect negatively on him in the eyes of Caesar. I'm sure rebellions were happening if Barabbas was an indication of that. Shame that Pilate may of succumbed to the mob in order to keep the peace, that is, other things above Justice. Righteousness escaped Pilate, if what is said was the basis of Pilate's reluctance than he was pressured by his wife on one end and then the mob on the other. I generally define innocent as free of any wrong doing also. Blameless if you will. Righteous though I reserve for Jesus Christ. Adam could be said to have been blameless or innocent up until the fall but Adam lacked the Righteous nature of Jesus Christ the Second Adam.
  9. Never heard of a farming game before. Be kinda neat if OT Law was in effect: Leviticus 23:22 “And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, nor shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the LORD your God.” Leviticus 27:30-33 30 “Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord's; it is holy to the Lord. 31 If a man wishes to redeem some of his tithe, he shall add a fifth to it. 32 And every tithe of herds and flocks, every tenth animal of all that pass under the herdsman's staff, shall be holy to the Lord. 33 One shall not differentiate between good or bad, neither shall he make a substitute for it; and if he does substitute for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.”
  10. Extremely powerful! Abortion. Is it a woman’s choice? Or is it murder?
  11. Join host and president of NiceneCouncil.com Jerry Johnson this week as his discusses the formation of the 1599 Geneva Bible, it's importance, and reveals the new version. Contra mundum!
