  1. It may seem dark at the moment, but don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, keep moving and you'll get there. God won't abandon you; let God be your light. It may take some time, but in the end, everything will be alright.

  2. Kindofblue, your church sounds wonderful. Keep going there and growing in your faith and do not pay any mind to people who seek to tear you down. A little about why I just popped up - I used to post here but I stopped due to attacks like this. I am Episcopalian. I also love Jesus with all my heart and believe in helping my fellow man as he taught us. You aren't going to convince anyone on here that your church is "right" in their eyes. Fortunately, no one's eyes on earth matter. Remember that and keep doing what you're doing. May the peace of the Lord be with you.
  3. I noticed that you checked in. You've been on my heart and in my prayers much. May you truly have a blessed Christmas.

  4. This is going to be my last post I hope. Pope John Paul II was a godly man. I am not Catholic but I respect the Pope as the Bishop of Rome. I also respect any leader who seeks to build bridges instead of walls. There is a fundamental misunderstanding among fundamentalists and liturgical and even mainstream Christians. We all believe in the same Jesus, but after that, it may get a little fuzzy. There's nothing wrong with that, unless you think something beyond an understanding of what Jesus did on the cross is essential for salvation. At the end of the day, I'm a Christian and y
  5. Um, I can't believe I'm even going to bother saying this, but this hardly means that Gov. Crist isn't a Christian. (I don't know that that's what you were saying, but it sounded like you were insinuating that with your second sentence.) Also, this doesn't mean that he wouldn't be a good choice for VP or POTUS. I would actually look at him more closely as he might be a decent middle of the road choice willing to listen to both sides and take many things into consideration. That's what I want in a leader.
  6. All good points to think about. These are all leading into the theories of the justice system. You are both intelligent people so I'm sure I'm "preaching to the choir" as they would say, but it all goes into if we think the penal system should be for rehabilitation, retribution, or deterrence. Now, I think all three under different circumstances, and hopefully the second less than the other 2. To address some of the points that both of you brought up; trc, I think your point is that the shoe is on the other foot when something terrible happens to ourselves or our loved ones. I agree,
  7. Murder and other crimes certainly should be punished, but I have to say that I strongly believe that the death penalty is not the way. The United States is one of the few industrialized countries that still has the death penalty and it's a shame. We have had many people on death row that have later been exonerated. How terrible to wrongly punish someone in such a permanent way! Studies have shown that the death penalty isn't a deterrent either. I for one know that my conscience would never allow me to sit on a jury and condemn a person to death.
  8. It is one thing to point out that someone needs Jesus (which some might find offensive) but quite another to call someone offensive names and make derogatory comments based on someone's outward appearance. Surely you can see the difference. With that being said I really need to heed trc's advice and stop feeding this troll...
  9. Just like every year there are some good incumbents and some bad and the same goes for the new faces. As far as O'Donnell, I would not support her if I lived in her area, but I will agree that the tendency to dredge up irrelevant things in a politician's past is vicious and generally more mean spirited than anything else. However, many conservative politicians bring up their religious affiliation first (I believe O'Donnell did but I could be wrong) so additional prOBing into something that they have already placed in the public forum is to be expected.
  10. Oh dear, there are so many errors in this and so many offensive things that I could never address them all. First of all, they are called Muslims. Second of all, regardless of how you feel about the Pope and Catholicism, it is wrong, illegal and unchristian to wish harm on anyone. Finally, there is no reason to use such ugly and derogatory language when referring to people or another country. It's offensive. There are many more things that I could and prOBably should address, but that's all for now...
  11. I'm sorry if I was unclear. I meant that if radical Muslims were keeping a "win column" they were prOBably as misguided in their application of that as they are in other things. In that case we shouldn't really bother ourselves with their judgements of wins and losses.
  12. Fair enough. I could offer some examples of a few men who meet prOBably 11 of 12 of your requirements. The only one I don't know is your #3; I'm not sure that in all cases the men I'm thinking of refrain from all secular forms of entertainment. However, rest assured that there are some politicians, some of whom I know personally that adhere to your requirements. I may not agree with everything they do, but I do respect them.
  13. Not true. You've done them good, just not the ultimate good. Perhaps by providing for their physical needs you've opened a door to share the gospel with them. Might make a little more sense than telling a bunch of starving people that what they really need to do is concentrate on their spiritual needs, right? Maslow's hierarchy, my friend.
  14. I know from reading your profile that you do not believe women should be in politics, but regardless of your view on that, I can assure you that Palin is not a feminist in the classic sense. The political ideologies that she espouses are very right wing. She by her own admission is trying to take back the term feminist from liberals who she believes have corrupted the word. Conservative and liberal relative to ourselves are prOBably different, but conservative and liberal relative to the entire spectrum really shouldn't be different. I'm asking you to give examples of what you think a t
