Bouncing Bill's Achievements

  1. A tiny bit Irish. Only God knows all that is mixed in my heritage. Lines of ancestors on from my mother and father trace back to the 1600s here in the new world.
  2. And Jesus called Peter to task for using his sword. Nowhere does Christ condone killing others. Indeed, the Bible and Christ teaches pacificism. Proverbs 25 21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink, 22 for you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. Christ said to love your enemy turn the other cheek go the extra mile. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. Nothing in Jesus Sermon on the Mount gives permission to kill. Either put your faith in Christ or in your weapons. You cannot do both. Jesus denied using violence. John 18:36 ESV / 270 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
  3. No one. But the woman in the photo is holding an assault rifle and a Bible. The only purpose of this rifle is to kill people. So, as she is holding a Bible I want to know where in the Bible it is justified to kill people. Can you give me an answer? To' me it is a sin to show the Bible and at the same time show it is acceptable to kill people. Show me where in the Bible this would be acceptable.
  4. When and where did Jesus tell his disciples that it was OK to kill someone?
  5. They pay because the took up the courts time and money as well as the states time and money on a frivolous lawsuit. Even the Supreme Court agreed.
  6. I was born again and washed in the blood of Jesus Christ over 65 years ago. I totally submitted to Him over 60 years ago, surrendering all and promising to follow wherever he led. He has led to very interesting people and places. I take Christ's example and teachings on how we are to look at and treat others very seriously. This has landed me in trouble in this board. But I stand with Christ and do not worry about where others do not agree on how we are to treat others as Christ taught. Christ gave hard teachings and most folk do not want to hear about those teachings. I will not ask you the insulting question you ask me. Blessings.
  7. Do you believe any church or denomination confuses parts of our culture with Christianity?
  8. The context is not given, thus it is taken out of context. No, I do not trust Christian 'traditions' more than scripture. But I do not trust stand alone, out of context, verses. By the way, this is way off the topic of this thread. Let's get back to discussing the confusion of mixing culture and Christianity. OK? Let's get back to discussing the topic of this thread. OK.
  9. "Baptist" must have been a name given to him by other people because of his baptizing people who had repented when he called them to 'repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand." Some Christian traditions call him, John the Immerse. Some John the Forerunner. And some John the Baptizer.
  10. I expect the lawyers to be disbarred. Rudy Giuliani's license to practice in New York has been revoked. Oh, and I expect any judge, regardless of who appointed them, to follow the law. She is doing that as this and, what was it 14 other suits brought by them, were summarily thrown out? Even the Supreme Court, with a conservative majority threw out their cases as having no merit. The Michigan case was one the Supreme Court rejected as having no merit. So, the fine is legal as it was a frivolous case and a waste of the courts time and resources. So, those who brought the frivolous case should pay for Michigan's expenses.
  11. Washington (Reuters) - Michigan officials on Wednesday demanded that lawyers who unsuccessfully sued to overturn President Donal Trump's election defeat in the state pay about $200,000 to reimburse for legal fees and related costs. U.S. District Judge Linda Parker ruled last month that state and local election officials in Michigan were entitled to reimbursement of their legal fees, but has not determined the exact amount. The judge will now review the $200,000 request to determine if it is reasonable. https://news.yahoo.com/michigan-officials-demand-payment-legal-210647125.html
  12. Citing one verse is taking it out of context. Anything can be proven if we do this all the time. And, regardless, your implied interpretation of this verse may not be correct seeing it is out of context. Where does the Bible say that God named John 'the Baptist'?
