  1. Ban Rosie for not capitalizing the first word in a sentence.
  2. I think I saw a locust the other day that looked like a horse.
  3. So, lately I've been praying a little bit (I'll admit, not much) about possibly buying a house. I don't want to go into something like this without God's guidance. But, is there anything we should think of as Christians when buying a house and becoming indebted through a mortgage?
  4. If you are having issues with this type of stuff, I would just not click on any of the links in this forum. Best to browse news on your own that way you know (for the most part) what you are looking at.
  5. I'm warming up to Paul a bit but I do get worried about those that have this feeling he will be the perfect candidate. Ron Paul fans seem to be like a cult...sorry John, you come off as a cultists in these threads. :hide:
  6. You didn't read the first post did you? There was no question.
  7. Yes, and this is why I asked the question. I haven't noticed a desire to explain the repentance (change of mind) portion of getting saved.
  8. Thank you. Yes, I am trying to get more involved with our Tuesday visitation/soulwinning program. I have been a few times now and was hoping to get some insight on the quick prayerism. Thanks again for your post.
  9. I guess I would just hate to wait for a result after years if there is a way to prevent that result. In short, I'd like to be proactive instead reactive if possible.
  10. How can we recognize Quick Prayerism for what it is? What are some tell tale signs? Please share any expertise you have because this is very important to me at the present time.
  11. What kind of Christian is Ron Paul?

  16. Oh, and they teach America is this great nation in K-12 so as to counter the filth you'll receive in college about how terrible America is.
  17. Definitely not "super" righteous, but I know of no other nation that is MORE righteous.
  18. Well, if you didn't have to dig so deep into Ron Paul's website or google or whatever to find out he was a born again Christian...maybe he'd get support from more Christians. Of course, he'd lose most of the support he has now at the same time.
  19. I think he said he CAN get into those areas.

  21. I apologize, I speed read sometimes and miss things. It seems you say that Ron Paul will bring back a federal government (or will try and I have no doubt he will) that is more constitutionally minded which means his social issues won't matter. But, then you say he's the only one that could have more than "...very little or nothing...". I'm very confused by this. While, I appreciate Ron Paul professing faith in Christ. It doesn't seem he wants to bring his faith to the forefront of his politics and that is very scary to me.
  22. I would be very interested to hear why you think Paul is the only one that could do any amount of change to social issues. He would allow the states to deal with social issues and would probably not even talk about them (because he doesn't believe government should be in your life that way). I'm fairly certain he voted to repeal DADT. Not sure why the government can't disallow certain people from military service so not sure his reasoning on that.
