Skip to comments.I owe you an apology... (Vanity(?)) [Zot!]

I must apologize.
I do not have the time to make individual apologies to each one of you who I have offended, hence the general post.
I have learned a lot in the last several years. Some of the things I've learned:
I USED TO vote the lesser of two evils. No longer.
God is Sovereign in illumination, as He is in salvation. He doen't give the same light to everyone at the same time. If you're in the dark; blame God, or get wisdom.
Lincoln was NOT a good president. One of the most evil, actually.
The CSA were correct in their actions.
The State of Israel as established by the U.N. is NOT the Israel of God.
09/11/2001 was NOT due to nineteen hijackers. (I posted to one FReeper in particular shortly after 911, for which I received a "timeout".)
... and some things are just as true today as they were when I offended. I'm truly sorry you are offended.
Follow the money still answers more questions than one might realize ...
Some Christians are catholic, but not all catholics are Christian.
Had to look that up.
It’d be a bit long-winded to say “In before the Zachary T. Paleozogt”.
Apply for what? Not applying for your club.
I don't think your platform is very sound.
I'm afraid that Reformism has enough drawbacks in the "TULIP" model to disqualify it as a Gospel to be preached. Reformed Catholicism, like Anglican/Episcopalianism or its daughter "Methodism," is still Catholicism, and not worthy of pursuing further.
Expect a lot of solid resistance to your ideas. They are not logical or spiritual. They are carnal in nature, from which a great deal of suffering will result.
The only organization fit for participation by the spiritual reborn believer-servant-Friend-priest child of The God is the local independent fundamental autonomous assembly of Christ-followers for whom Jesus The Messiah is Lord and Head, both individually and corporate, entered by the induction rite of water baptism immersion of the rational committed publicly professing believer, governed by a plurality of spiritually mature elders administering church discipline, preaching sound Biblical doctrine, faithfully exercising the command to recruit and teach disciples individually, and showing the Messiah's death until His Second Coming through regularly participating in the Lord's supper as ordained the night before His Crucifixion.
Assemblies following the Calvinistic tradition do not and cannot fully fulfill this non-negotiable requirement as an institution of the Coming King and His Kingdom of Righteousness and Peace.
Even worse, there’s a side character in that series who is “L-word”. And here I was hoping it’d be clean.
Isn't this the MO of a particular political party whose name begins with 'd' ?
Have some coffee and write again when you’re awake.
To assume that all who identify as being “Christian” are actually “walking the walk” is foolhardy. It’s like assuming Hillary Clinton is innocent just because Comey “exonerated” her.
Insane rant rejected.
What about Mac vs Windows, which side do you take?
We need to know.
Try to find a copy of “The Real Lincoln” by Thomas J. Dilorenzo. The book presents “A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War”.
or a lame OPUS?
Incoherence is a Disease.
All is not gold that glitters.
Or that Bill Clinton and obama were Christians because they said so.
We hardly knew You.
And that ‘providence’ favors their endeavor.
I found the Dilorenzo book a bit polemical, though I don't recall anything he got obviously wrong.
My recommendations would be When In the Course of Human Events by Charles Adams and Lincoln the Man by Edgar Lee Masters. Read these books as I did, verifying their assertions of fact with other resources. (Mostly I recall utilizing the Encyclopedia Britannica.)
Think about that quote chiseled into the Lincoln Memorial: With Malice Toward None, With Charity For All. At the time Lincoln said this (Second Inaugural Address) he was ordering his generals to burn widows and orphans out of their farms; and maybe to do worse things to the Indians.
The stuff we learned in high school about "Honest Abe" isn't all there is to learn. I say this as an Honest Yankee who has never lived south of Long Island, NY.
Where’s the ZOT kittie? This guy has been living in a mental cave all his life, doesn’t know anything about anything. Hey, does someone tell you to breathe?
