? the ideology of the Church ought to play second fiddle to the commandment to love...? and I wholeheartedly agree with il papa! When have I ever even remomtely suggested that Love doesn?t trump all? Of course the most important thing is Love. While the Bible has many genres as we discussed, if the book had to be categorized as just one book, it would be classified as a Love story. The greatest love story of all time, which makes it very unfortunate that it?s not ?your story?.
True, but there is no admonition in scripture against such activity, so the community is divided. Some churches, like the Catholics send a mixed message (such activity is ok so long as it is not the result, that the act ends in intercourse) others do "go after" anyone who indulges, others - like my church hold that any joyful and welcome sexual expression in marriage is fine.
Ah, I see, you can't. You hide behind a fake superiority and appeals to authority.
The nemesis of interesting!
To claim that Canada is a security threat as Trump has done shows a shocking lack of understanding of the historical relationship. Or perhaps Trump is so arrogant he just doesn?t care.
Notice how that does not invite you to stick your nose into their private lives, including your self-invitation to try to deny them the blessings of defining their own families: "When LBGT advocates began seeking to change the definition of marriage to accommodate their desires this essentially forced everyone else to take a position." How LGBTQ define their families and their relationships has zero bearing on you and your life, except when you self-invite yourself to get into the middle of their lives. Trying to block their civil rights to determine their own futures goes a lot farther that what Thessalonians gives you permission to do. You are plain done and out of "commission" when you finish expressing your personal objection to their values. Nothing in that verse or any other gives you permission to interfere in their actual lives or rights. If you do, you invite legal and political retaliation and any that comes your way will be well-deserved.
Sorry, I was daydreaming about Padma Lakshmi.
I imagine Hovind was also convinced that he wasn't breaking the law...
I'm glad that little girl has you.
That?s what I thought.
Banning guns only treats the symptom, not the cause. I see no reason to abrogate my or your right to bear arms.
Having been a Christian there is nothing I like about my old religion. I know not a lot about other religions to make a decision other then they are in their own way somewhat similar.
You don't know that by any scientific study. Go live in the stone age like you think.
It seems to me he is just railing against over-privileged white kids who need the discipline dial turned up a notch in their lives.
Plenty of people struggle to stay alive each day. Spade was no different.
So you love evolution, but you hate evolution. Make up your mind.
I wonder what Trudeau's plan was by telling the press about a private call with Trump? Was it an attempt to embarrass him? If that was his plan I don't believe it will work out well for him or Canada, as I don't believe Trump is the kind of man will take that lightly. IMO if Trump wants to deal with Canada separately from Mexico he should jump on the opportunity. Trump is after Mexico for good reason, the trade deficit with Mexico was $55.6 B in 2016. Canada's trade with Mexico is small in comparison, but our trade deficit with Mexico in 2016 was $8B. On the other side of the equation the US had a trade surplus with Canada in 2016 of $12.5B, so Trudeau would have a great bargaining chip if he would deal with Trump on NAFTA directly without siding with Mexico.
Hey, if you want to toss out low-brow comments like that then I will toss 'em right back. Goose, gander, and all that.
Again, the singularity was not nothing.
I sometimes do the "because no means no" but I mostly will offer the logic behind the rule. He's so curious about why people think and feel the way they do that I feel I'm not respecting him as a human being if I don't try to help him understand.
No snark. This is an accepted fact for most scholars. Most of the gospels do not claim to be written, even within the text of the gospel, by who they are attributed to.
BN is moderated. It is an obvious falsehood that anyone can say anything they want here.
I think so too PP. Lol is right..
A distinction probably needs to be drawn there between whether a killing is murder based on the facts, and whether a killing is considered murder based on what is known about it.
Go ahead - tell me what 40
Welp, looks like were not going to agree here.
The anti-choice groups I've seen are hardly non-confrontational.
Oh, yes, the MRI "ear plugs." Useless things. I also get sleepy in an MRI tube. And the dentist's chair during cleanings. It's hard to hold one's mouth open while dozing & snoring...
