  • Is Lent Becoming More Popular Among Evangelicals?

    Well....now I understand why you are curious about denominations. Makes sense. My apologies.......

    But....it still doesn’t justify observing man made “Religious observances” in lieu of the real thing. You can look from Genesis to Revelation and not find much of what modern day “Churchianity” observes....and believes.

    The Holy Spirit chose Greek to protect the scriptures as it is a precise language....difficult to mistranslate.

    But.....C’est la Vie!

    Why is denomination important to you? Wouldn’t a correct rendering of the Greek just be sufficient to show this common Biblical error of Lent having any truth to it....be enough?

    The literal Greek reads the same for Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans and even Satan as well.

    Douglas has masterfully rendered the correct translation of most of these “so called” proof scriptures to show they’re just “bunk”.

  • Is Prince Harry’s son Archie eligible to be US president? (Shameless vanity)

    Correct! Natural Born simply means......"No naturalization need take place....ever".

    Natural Born means.....NATURAL BORN (DUH) and needs no Naturalization Law to support it. That's why the 14th amendment has no bearing on this subject and that's why the Presidency is the only Federal Office that makes the distinction......or a citizen "At the time of the adoption of this Constitution... [Article II; Section I]...shall be eligible."

    Meaning......you may run for the office if you were previously a British subject......or your parents were.....At the time of the adoption of this Constitution.

    But.........after a few years........this became a moot point as all previous American Citizens who had at one time been British subjects....were now dead. At that point Natural Born kicks in.........born of two citizen parents. In addition..........Natural Born has nothing to do with where you were born.....only to whom you were born.

    This is why "Obama" was never a Natural Born Citizen. He could have been born on the 4th of July, in the lobby of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, with the Marine Corps band outside on the lawn....playing "God Bless America"......to an American citizen mother. He would still not be a Natural Born Citizen because his father was a British subject....a citizen of Kenya in the British Commonwealth.

    He could be a Congressional Representative, Senator, A Governor...even a Supreme Court Justice.....but not a President because of the distinction of that clause...."At the time of the Adoption of this Constitution".

    Sorry..........your post is in error. the Constitution can only be changed by Convention....not legislation.

    Article V, U.S. Constitution: The Congress,whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

    Enacting legislation that changes the Constitution is Unconstitutional. Proposing is not enacting!

    Your analysis and reference does not address "Natural" born citizenship.....only citizenship. These are two different things.

    This is why the Constitution specifies a different qualification for those seeking the presidency:

    Article II; Section I, U.S.Constitution: (Paragraph 5) No person except a natural born Citizen,or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    All other Federal offices did not have this requirement..only the Presidency. That was because the Framers did not want someone whose parents had not been citizens leading this country in a time of war...... particularly against the Nation of whom the parents had been citizens. This would have been a major stumbling block so they wrote into the Constitution that phrase.... knowing that eventually there would be ample candidates whose parents had never been citizens of another Nation.

    Many early seekers to the Presidency had at one earlier time been British Subjects, and this phrase allowed them to qualify early on. But eventually..... as time passed.... there were no more folks old enough to at one time have been British subjects.

    The Presidency is the only Federal office with this requirement. You can be a Senator, a Representative, a Governor and even a Supreme Court Justice with Parents who had been (or are) foreign Nationals......but not the Presidency.

    The Congress does not have the power to change Constitutional law by legislation.....only by convention.

    Well...........I guess half of America doesn't realize we're not a Democracy! No wonder it doesn't work well. It's not supposed to. It's a stupid form of government.

    Let's see if we can find the word "Democracy" in the Pledge of Allegiance. No? Oh.....that's right....it's to the "REPUBLIC" for which it stands. Silly me........

    I just love that dear old song....."The Battle Hymn of the Democracy"....don't you?

    How 'bout the Constitution? Is it in there? No? Well....there you go..........It says...."A Republican form of Government!"

    The publication I have before me iş "The Historical Atlas of the United States" published by the National Geographic Society in 1988. It is an atlas sized book of 285 pages with full color maps and extensive documentation, charts, graphs, etc.

    The total number of Africans brought to colonial America as slaves was 399,000. Page 40 under "African immigration in chains". The height of the slave population in this country was in 1830. The population of slaves had grown to 2,000,000 individuals. Same page and story.

    Here is the eye opener. The Total number of Africans imported into Spanish America..................

    (Cuba, Mexico, Central America and South America) was 1,552,100.

    British Caribbean (Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Jamaica, Honduras) was 1,665,000.

    Danish Caribbean Leeward Islands) 28,000.

    French Caribbean Surinam, Guyana) 1,600,200.

    Dutch Caribbean (Aruba and Leeward Islands) 500,000.

    Brazil imported a total of 3,646,800 Africans into their country as slaves.

    About 6% of the total slavery into the western hemisphere ostensibly ended up in the United States and of course slavery as an institution was still carried on in the eastern hemishere by Africans themselves.....yet when one is reminded of this terrible Scourge on the history of mankind we somehow seem to only be reminded of the evilness of the slave trade in the U.S.A. This also dispells the notion, promulgated by some, that slavery was somehow responsible for the economic success of this nation. If that is the case why isn't Brazil such an economic dynamo.....0r Aruba.....0r....you get my meaning.

    This information should probably be presented when discussing reparations! I originally wrote this about ten years ago and I see this stupid idea is beginning to crop up once more.

    Little Marky Milley acted very silly, and also willy nilly, when claiming he was wrong.

    He tried to take a dump, on his Commander Trump, but only looked a chump, and sang his stupid song.

    Instead he should have made, a statement for his grade, that he would always aid, his country to be strong.
