  1. And from what I understand, a number of denominations accept such "ordinations" as valid, my own, sadly, being one of them
  2. That's great news 🙂 Now Ruth Bader needs to pop back out of the carbonite she's encased herself in and retire so that we can get another conservative onto the bench this year Ruth Bader Ginsburg Encased In Carbonite Until Next Court Session BABYLONBEE.COM WASHINGTON, D.C.—With President Trump now nominating his second justice to the Supreme Court, a lot of attention is being paid to the oldest Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Critics fear that if Trump replaces her, it would shift the court far to the right. She’s in fine health for now, though, according to the […]
  3. Hi Matthew, while I agree with you when you say that "the indisputable evidence of a genuine conversion is the indwelling of the HS", my question is, how is that demonstrated in the life of a believer? After all, there are many who "claim" to be Christians who have, as a result, claimed to have received the Holy Spirit as well, when clearly, they have not. As for the "doubting" thing, I will have to respectfully disagree with you about that. The reason I do is because it's hard to believe that there are 'any' true Christians, especially as babes in Christ, who never questioned whether they were saved or not, at least from time to time (especially since causing us to question our salvation is perhaps our enemy's favorite tactic, again, particularly with those who are young in the faith/have not had much experience dealing with him and all the trouble that he brings to bear in our lives). --David

  5. Democratic Socialism July 13, 2018 You can’t go into a Whole Foods or indie record store without hearing somebody talk about it: democratic socialism. Is it a radical new idea that we should try out in our nation, or is it an old idea with the word “democratic” stapled to the front to make it sound more palatable? Find out in this handy explainer from your friends at The Babylon Bee: What is Democratic Socialism? Democratic Socialism is a growing movement in America promising every citizen the most basic human rights, including but not limited to free healthcare, a government-guaranteed job making at least $15 per hour, free college tuition, guaranteed housing, broadband internet access, and cage-free vegan lattes. How would the government pay for all of that? By rightfully appropriating money from terrible, evil, oppressive, hardworking, enterprising citizens who have earned wealth via the dreaded free market economy that has led to unprecedented human flourishing. Governments are known for being the most efficient spenders of money, and so surely would do an excellent job as stewards of your wealth—err, we mean, the public’s wealth. Isn’t it immoral to take most of the money people earn? No—actually, it’s the right thing to do. People with money only got that money because of inherent privilege, racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, patriarchy, and all kinds of other unfair power structures and phobias. You know what, we’re a little concerned with all the questions you’re asking here. It sounds like someone needs to spend a little more time in a democratic re-education loyalty center! KILL THE KULAKS! How does Democratic Socialism differ from just “Socialism”? It has the word “Democratic” in front of it, you see, which means it is achieved by promoting identity politics, stoking class warfare, and cranking that entitlement mentality up to 11, instead of literal violent overthrow of the government. Besides, voting for the government to seize people’s wealth is totally different from the government deciding to do so on their own, right? Err… uh… DID WE MENTION YOU GET FREE STUFF?? Say it with us: Socialism good, Democratic Socialism better! It seems like if you try to run the numbers, there’s just no way Democratic Socialism is a fiscally feasible form of government. “Run the numbers”? “Fiscally feasible”? Have you been paying attention, like, at all? Do you want free money, or are you part of the problem? YOU GET FREE MONEY, AND YOU GET FREE MONEY—ERRYBODY GETS FREE MONEEEEEEEEEEEY!!! Is there an example of this form of government working out well in the world? YES! Venezuela is a socialist paradise, having achieved an almost totally equal distribution of hunger and lack of basic necessities. With features like 46,000% inflation, mass starvation, empty grocery stores, and total economic collapse, it’s a great real-world example of a socialist utopia! THAT’S HOW YOU STICK IT TO THE CORPORATE OLIGARCHY, BABY! OWN THE CAPITALISTS WITH THIS ONE GREAT TRICK! As you can see, the centralization of wealth and power to an elite few in government is perfectly in line with the ideas America was founded on. Now let’s get out there and democratically seize the means of production, comrades!

  7. Senate Democrats Demand Supreme Court Nominee Not Be Unduly Influenced By U.S. Constitution June 29, 2018 WASHINGTON, D.C.—Still reeling from Trump’s previous Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Democrats plan to scrutinize any new nominee to ensure that he or she isn’t yet another crony of something called “The Constitution,” Senate Democrats announced Friday. “Time and time again, we find progressive laws getting struck down,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a Senate address. “And it’s always — always — the ones the Constitution is against. These right-wing judges don’t think for themselves, they just do whatever the Constitution says. And it’s time for that to end.” Senate Democrats have vowed to make sure that any new nominee isn’t going to be beholden to outside influences like the Constitution, the founding fathers, or the rule of law. “We need judges to be advocates of progressive laws,” Senator Elizabeth Warren added. “Not people who will bow to the whims of the Constitution, pitting its extremist values of freedom of speech and freedom of religion against our agenda.” “We’re sick and tired of the Constitution sitting in the National Archives, manipulating everything we do,” stated Senator Cory Booker, trying to emote for the cameras but failing. Booker then called a ten-minute recess for him to refresh his supply of fake tears before he could continue. Asked about their concerns, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he “doesn’t care” and plans to “completely ignore” the Democrats in the nomination process since “there’s nothing they can do” and he is “literally unstoppable.” Senate Democrats Demand Supreme Court Nominee Not Be Unduly Influenced By U.S. Constitution

  9. Father, take my life, yea, my blood if Thou wilt, and consume it with Thine enveloping fire. I would not save it, for it is not mine to save. Have it Lord, have it all. Pour out my life as an oblation for the world. Blood is only of value as it flows before Thine altar. ~Missionary Jim Elliot
  10. Hi Bishop_Ryle, in what way was Chip and Joanna Gaines church "anti-gay"? Also, the P & G thing happened in the 80-90's, but I don't remember any "evangelical" groups being named as responsible for it. If memory serves, their competitor, "Amway", had something to do with pressing that false rumor however. --David
