  1. If/when they get into office couldn't they just as easily remove the military from our borders as well?
  2. I briefly read there is a new allegation of sexual misconduct against him and that Sanders, Harris, Warren and Castro want him impeached. https://news.yahoo.com/trump-defends-brett-kavanaugh-amid-new-sexual-misconduct-allegations-says-the-lies-being-told-about-him-are-unbelievable-154125579.html Let's bring back Robert Mueller and have a long drawn out 2 year investigation about these new allegations. Let's spend tens of millions of dollars for this witch hunt....ahem ... pursuit of all the facts. Let's get the FBI involved and dedicate their full resources in this investigation. Let's have endless interviews. Etc., etc., etc.
  3. Hello S.T., I agree and disagree with the above. I agree that is what James 2 speaks of, but not what Romans 4 speaks of. Romans 4:5 connects all Christians to the justification spoken of Abraham in Romans 4:3. TDNT: Paul in his conflict with judaising Christianity finds in Abraham an example of the man who is justified by faith alone (R.4:1 ff.; Gl. 3:6 ff.), and can thus see in Christians both of Jewish and Gentile descent the true children of Abraham and heirs of the Abrahamic promise (1:9, Abraham, Joachim Jeremias).
  4. In answer to your question at this present time, no. I am not sure yet how this thing will pan out. When the CCP takes full control in less than 30 years then say good-bye to religious freedom. I believe the best way for them to revolt is to leave. See post #2. https://www.christforums.com/forums/topic/27165-hong-kong-demonstration-draws-crowd-of-more-than-17-million-against-government-orders/?tab=comments#comment-96106
  5. I think other things can have glory in a limited sense. The American flag is referred to as Old Glory. The glory of sons are their fathers (Proverbs 17:6), Solomon possessed glory (Matthew 6:29), a woman's hair (1 Corinthians 11:15), the sun, moon and stars possess a certain kind of glory (1 Corinthians 15:41), the face of Moses as well (2 Corinthians 3:7). Generally speaking I think the people of Hong Kong know that the losing of certain freedoms will eventually lead to the loss of others such as religious freedom. I think they are asking the USA to pressure China (in trade) to allow them to be guaranteed certain rights that can not be infringed upon. I agree with Matthew 5:44, but I also believe there comes a time to fight the existing authority when it becomes too intrusive and diabolical - German citizens resting the Nazi's in Germany (WW2) and even John Brown just before the US Civil War.
  6. "...it's time for the world to stand with Hong Kong." - Joshua Wong See the last sentence from this article: https://www.oann.com/hong-kong-activist-seeks-u-s-support-for-pro-democracy-protests/ Glory to Hong Kong https://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/09/13/hong-kong-protesters-anthem-mall-lu-stout-pkg-vpx.cnn/video/playlists/around-the-world/
  7. Hello SS, I am sorry to hear about your very difficult situation. Have you cast all your worries and concerns unto the Lord (1 Peter 5:7)? From my personal experience if I was helped out from all the time of the extremely difficult things I went through I would have no need for God.
  8. Hello EM and welcome to ChristForums, Your first sentence describes me as well. If all the well-known candidates supported what you described then I would vote for another candidate if they didn't share those views. Even if this person would most likely not win my conscience would be much at ease knowing I had conducted myself in the proper way in how I voted (cf. Hebrews 13:18).
  9. I am not very persuaded by these kinds of things. I have the Bible and the inner testimony of the Holy Spirit. I think that God might prevent the discovery of certain things such as the body of Moses, Noah's Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, the cup in which He and the apostles drank from at the Last Supper, the spear that plunged in the side of Jesus, the cross that He was crucified on, His clothes, droplets of His blood and/or sweat. The list goes on and on. The reason why I say this is because we are a stubborn and obstinate people who are so easily duped into worshiping idols. If something like the above (or others) were found then I am almost certain that there will be some/many people who worship the object/s. 2 Kings 18:4 comes to mind.
  10. Been overseas too long. Never seen that film. Read that it was pretty awful though.
  11. I do wonder about what happened to those who quit their jobs and/or sold their possessions thinking that May 21st was the day. It must have been a huge disappointment for all of them.
  12. Even if it was "over 1 trillion 'Catholics'" we know (or at least we should know) that truth is not determined by majority vote when Scripture is being defamed. If truth was/is determined by majority vote then the truth of Christ (His life, teachings and resurrection) would be false (cf. Matthew 7:13-14).
  13. In regards to sentence #1: You didn't address any of the evidence I supplied from the link in post #19 that demonstrates prayer is worship. In regards to sentence #2: I already addressed this point in the same link. Here it is again... Prayer is not just talking to someone and it is not asking a friend to pray for you in the same way as asking Mary or the other saints to pray for you because many times prayers can be silent (and in many different languages) and another person would not know what is being requested from multitudes of people at the same time. In fact, when multiple people addressed the commander in Acts 21:34 he was unable to fully understand what all the people were saying. This would present no difficulty at all with the omniscient God.
