    We weren't talking about the Lord's Prayer; we were talking about the Gloria (Luke 2:14).

    Also, you're incorrect; there is a textual variant in Matthew 6:13, which is whether "For Yours is the...

    If a scholar as conservative as Daniel Wallace is willing to state that the arguments against Paul writing Hebrews "are conclusive" I'm inclined to accept him at his word.

    For that matter,...

    The comment Zara made of "almost 8x the number of murders" was concerning the number of murders per 100,000 people. The population size of a country is irrelevant to that because it's a proportional...

    As noted, a look at her Twitter should be enough to dispel these conspiracy claims (and I should have kept looking, I missed the tweet she gave in support of Kavanaugh's confirmation). But it...

    Does one tweet really constitute "avid support"? In fact, if you look at it, the praise really just amounts to saying "she's better than our incumbent" ("Queens is headed in a new direction and it's...

    I don't see why that particularly matters. "Socialism" has so many different possible definitions that I couldn't tell you the difference between capitalism and socialism unless you were very...

    I think a Republican could win it... but it'd have to be a Republican liberal enough that they could pass for a conservative Democrat. I don't really know Scherie Murray's political positions so I...

    First off, though, an error on my part: I incorrectly ascribed this to a textual variation. There is a textual variation in this passage, but the translation question here occurs within one one of...

    It did the opposite for me, unfortunately. I interpreted the "ready for the Babylon Bee" to mean that it was a real story that was goofy enough that it could pass as a Babylon Bee article.

    The usual argument I see from conservatives regarding cap and trade is that it not only hurts the economy, it's ineffective at fighting global warming anyway.

    I'm not saying the SBC was never in favor of segregation. I am objecting to your odd idea that just because they didn't formally denounce it until 1995 that, up until that point, their "official...

    That's nonsense. Perhaps they had not formally renounced it until then, but that doesn't mean it was "officially" in favor of segregation up until that point. Or can you point to any official...

    Your reference was so vague that I thought you were referring to Revelation 11:7 which is about the two witnesses.

    It's my understanding that for a long time this has been how it's been rendered in some other languages.
