    I'm troubled by both "sides" in this discussion. Both seem, in their own ways, graceless and merciless.

    What are you talking about, you frothing lunatic?

    No, Tass, my comment was specifically (and clearly!) in regard to the bit that I quoted:

    I just had a flash of Michael Corleone in church, renouncing satan and all his works and all his pomps -- while his men committed bloody murder. I enjoy the GF movies, but after all the times I've...

    There's also 1 Sam. 16:14, 16 and 19:9, all of which refer to "an evil spirit from the LORD" or "an evil spirit from God."

    That seems to be splitting hairs. Either the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness *for the purpose* of being tempted/tested, or He led Him into the wilderness and somehow did not know what would...

    I support President Trump without hesitation, and all the more so as he is constantly attacked and derided.

    If one defines "Christian" as a "saved person," I would say that it is marginally conceivable that Buttgiggy is a genuine Christian, but I would say his "practice" is severely defective and likely...

    Do nothing to give away that source! Bee stories are great tests of both IQ and "HQ" (Humor Quotient). Let dimwits embarrass themselves by raging against the intentionally fake news, and then...

    It's from late into the first season of Krypton. I'd had no interest in the series, but somehow allowed myself to get somewhat hooked last weekend. They had a semi-binge of the whole first season....

    Michael Knowles over at Daily Wire expressed the problem better than I could. Basically, Facebook sometimes gets to claim to be a "platform," other times a "publisher," and so gets the best of both...

    The possibility that the problem is longstanding does not soften the impact in any way. It only implies that since early in the Church Age, God was unable or unwilling to see that His word was...

    I realize that "inerrancy" only applies to the now-nonexistent original documents, and that basically only KJV-onlyists *really* believe in divine preservation of the word of God.

    Still, it is...

    Thanks for reminding me that I neglected to add "humorless turd" to the "evan-jerk-ical" line.
