    It is against the teachings of the Church to hate anyone.

    Whoa, wait a minute. That sounds good until you think about it. You are right, THE TEACHING OF THE CHURCH is to not hate, but God hates sin and those who practice sin. Hate the sin and love the sinner is a quote from Gandhi.

    Rom_9:13 As it is written, “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” should also make us pause.

    I refer you to the following for thought:

    Our God is a Holy God, don’t “pigeon hole” him into only being about love. I kinda like the conclusion:

    In conclusion, the evidence is clear. Jesus hated and had reasons to hate. The question I have is: Why is it so difficult for people to imagine Jesus hating anything? I think the answer is that people today do not base their concept of Jesus on the Bible. They have created a Jesus in their own imagination. This is the Jesus of tradition and of man’s imagination; not the Jesus of the Bible. The Bible tells us of this tendency to make Jesus into something He is not and warns us of those who come and preach “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians 11:4

    The Jesus of popular conception is “another Jesus.” He is more like Santa Claus (another invention of the human imagination) than the Jesus of the Bible.

    As a final note this does not negate what God says about love. He is both, but it is our puny minds that can’t reconcile this and think it is one or the other.

    Sola scripture is simply LUDICROUS.

    The New Testament freed us from all the traditions and rules. The curtain was rent from the top and the temple destroyed.

    We are given freedom in Christ but along with that comes great responsibility.

    But many are not comfortable with freedom so began to enslave themselves with all the rules and details again. Working out your salvation with fear and trembling is not easy. It is much easier to follow a set of rules that others have decided for us.

    Jesus came to divide, not to bring peace. What you view as a bad thing is God at work. Iron sharpening is not pleasant. Where RC is wrong is not going through the process, thinking they know it all. Relying on rules and traditions.

    As described in Revelation the church from the beginning must REPENT and go back to the simplicity of it's first love. It is not about the shiny things and details.

    The scripture is to test the truthfulness of something. It is the touchstone for truth. We do not test truth against tradition. Finding the truth is never an easy process, it is hard and will cost us but is worth it.

    Nearest I can tell is that from beginning God has desired a personal relationship with us. He doesn't want our institutions, our traditions, our offerings, he want us, body and soul. And thus the working out with fear and trembling..........................

    PeterPrinciple to SeekAndFind

    some thoughts:

    1) God’s response after stopping Abraham was, “Now I know that you fear me.” That would appear to be the purpose of the story, not the idea of human sacrifice that we think it is about. Fear of God is something we do not understand today.

    2) I pray I am never put to that test but if so, I get the grace to what is right.

    3) The story illustrates what God Him self did and completed for us.

    4) Remember the procedure was to cut the throat and let the sacrifice bleed to death, a particularly gruesome process to teach us to respect life, and again illustrates the cross.

    Your comment is not reasonable.

    Read the parable I referenced. Which obeyed his father, the one who said he would and didn’t or the one who said no but did?

    I know the office doctrine written doctrine of the Methodist church regarding Homersexuality. But they WILL NOT DISCIPLINE on the issue. If you tolerate them, that is your real position..........................

    This is the same disconnect we see here regarding the RC. What they say and do are not the same.

    And it is the same disconnect in us as individuals thus there is a lot of repenting needing to be done. Getting back to the first love as described in Revelation.

    Now note I am discussing the institutions here. During the reformation there was a discussion of what were the minimum requirements of a church:

    1) Preached the Gospel. This excludes some groups like Mormons, Muslims and Jehovah’s witnesses. Note the focus is the Gospel, not the traditions, or old testament although they there to guide but subject to the Gospel. etc. There is a lot of freedom here, but also a lot of responsibility. This was a new covenant. God rent the curtain from the top and destroyed the old temple. Yet we want the old system because it was familiar.

    2) Administer the sacraments - again, guided by the gospels, not tradition and history

    3) Discipline - this is probably the most lacking in ALL denominations today because of the insertion of the world view of toleration. But is has the most potential for abuse but if none, we go too far off the path.

    To reiterate: Jewish tradition allowed for the recognition of material relics as holy (see above biblical proof texts) and the early Christians continued the practice.

    I am partially in error in my prior post. Jewish TRADITION allowed for divorce, but God has always hated divorce. Do you think RC traditions are anymore trustworthy than Jewish tradition?

    He has always hated graven images and idols also. Did you ever catch that in the Old testament? Relics are man made for mans purposes.

    Why would God Never allow any earthly image of him?

    He is a jealous God. Anything that distracts from Him is an idol.

    Why would you rely on traditions when you have the primary source, the Bible, available to you.

    Why would you pray to Mary when God invites you to speak with him as Father?

    Many Christians here, including myself, have received a knowledge of WHO Jesus of Nazareth really is from reading the Gospels and other New Testament books in addition to the Old Testament books compiled in the Holy Bible.

    Not only have I learned and ACCEPTED that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ and the Son of the Living God via Scripture and hearing and responding to the foolishness of the preaching the Cross, I also have a personal intimate daily relationship with Him in Spirit and via His Written Word and have been given the Seal that promises me that I am known in Christ as well.

    No believer in Lord Jesus Christ needs Rome or any other religious system to be a Christian and to be saved from the second death and eternal separation from Almighty God and to have fellowship with the saints here and now.

    We are very close to the govt controlling our food system even more. And to be honest with you there are too many conservatives here who think the govt is the solution to the problem because it is perceived as easy. If we pass a law, that will solve the problem.

    I just found the “Merry Christmas” map interesting. I can imagine them saying, “let’s take a look at Merry Christmas and see what it says.” I’m sure the map was depressing so they called it something more positive to inspire them.

    “Alsace is sacred ground,” De Gaulle replied.

    A little background here:

    Sacred Ground: The Liberation of Alsace-Lorraine, 1944-1946

    Serge Cipko


    Alsace-Lorraine, a region annexed from France by Germany in 1871 and recovered by France in 1918, was reannexed by Germany once more following the fall of France in 1940. In 1944 French liberation forces embarked on an intense campaign to regain what it considered “sacred ground,” and the French media projected an image of an Alsatian population enthusiastically endorsing this effort to be reunited with the rest of the country. A careful reading of documentary evidence, however, suggests that the process of liberation and the reintegration of the region into France did not proceed smoothly. The demands the liberation forces placed on the civilian population to join the military campaign against the Nazis, combined with the delicate issue of collaboration, the mutual distrust, the strenuous efforts to “re-Francocize” the region following four years of Nazification (a process which had included indoctrination, service in the Wehrmacht, the installation of extermination camps in the territory, and collaboration), generated an ambiguous relationship between Charles de Gaulle’s government and Alsatians. Official French policy in the region, which deviated from that practiced in the rest of France, reflected the circumstances peculiar to Alsace-Lorraine.

    The Torah is my authority.

    That is a good point. Lets talk about that. Or as Paul Harvey would say, here is the rest of the story.

    Here is what happens at the packing plant to satisfy that requirement. As the animal enters the chute, an automated clamp comes down on their head, you can see the fear in their eyes at this point. Next an automated knife some out and cuts their throat. Their eyes role around for several seconds as the blood drains out and finally an automated pin strikes them in the head to put them out of their misery.

    Please reread the above and then lets talk.

    1) Your Jewish faith causes much more animal suffering than anything discussed here on this thread. I am not judging here, I am stating the truth. You live in a sanitized world.

    2) Why would God institute such a cruel practice? I think He wanted it to be personal, to understand life and death. It is a funny thing to say but you cannot fully understand the value of life until you have taken an animal life.

    3) Why is it automated? No rabbi could remain sane if he took that much life day in and day out.

    4) Why is this still being done? Because it has been turned into a ritual with the original purpose and meaning long lost.

    Now, if you are really concerned about animal cruelty, you will stop this. Or will you at least witness this so the original intention can be fulfilled. Can you give me a response or will you ignore this?

    By March 1944 the rapid retreat of the Japanese and their unwillingness to risk shipping in the Solomons area would result in technological unemployment for the “Snooper Squadron,” and at this time the radar planes would be authorized to serve as pathfinders for the high-altitude bombers.

    So at this time in the war they had been so effective that the enemy had responded in a way to put them out of work. The new role is path finder for high altitude bombers which I would take to mean B29’s. Lemay with his low altitude bombing plan will also help make them obsolete?

    With that in mind, do you really want to hang your hat on the argument that your RC was there first? Do understand that God’s chosen people ,the Jews, were in line LONG BEFORE your RC? That you were grafted in there? If God will remove His chosen people, do you not think He might remove the Roman Catholic Church also?

    This has all been discussed in the Bible already and I will not repeat it here, but I would encourage you to go READ IT.

    Of course we are all on one side of the trench or another. But these posts do nothing to get anyone over to the other side of the trench. The same people just keep arguing about the same points again and again without positive effect.

    That is one way of looking at it but here is another. Never underestimate the VALUE OF PUBLIC DEBATE. This is where ideas are communicated, sharpened and clarified. Our founding fathers thrived on public debate and that is why we ended up with the great nation we had for a while.

    The people who benefit here are those that are still learning, that they may look at the facts and arguments and get closer to the truth, that they may be saved from wrong thinking........................

    Again, remember our Founding Fathers thrived on public debate and would have it no other way.

    Again will you read Revelation Chapter 2 and 3. The message is from Jesus not me, you should think it is important and it can’t be any more clear. You claim authorship of the Bible but don’t read it, but Maybe you would if Mary said it................

    ON second thought she did say, “listen to my son and do what He says..........................”

    And in Revelation Chapter 2 and 3 Jesus tell the church to REPENT AND RETURN TO YOUR FIRST LOVE or he will leave.

    oops, don’t want to claim that one.....................

    ANYTHING THAT THEY SAID that caused you to leave the true church that Jesus Christ founded was a lie...pretty simple!!

    And they haven’t read Revelation Chapter 2 and 3 where Jesus says repent or I’m leaving...................

  • More room for chickens likely means costlier eggs

    I understand enough to know that people who have no standards of decency are dead men walking.

    The quick emotional assumption as presented on this thread is that raising chickens in cages is a moral wrong. That is a big assumption. I don’t know how raising chickens in cages jumps to your conclusion.

    I was flabbergasted to see, a few months ago, that a house about a mile or so away had chickens pecking away in the front yard! I called the appropriate city office and yes, hens (but not roosters) are permitted to be kept in the confines of NYC. No ducks, no turkeys, no geese—but hens are fine. Imagine that!

    The chickens are confined to NYC but have the freedom of pecking away in the front yard. I thought you were worried about cages for the chickens and here you live in one. I do understand your position now. You poor thing, living in a cage like that. (having fun with you)
