Most of the left wing posters on OPP are of type 3.

I agree with that assessment though there is always the chance they will change.

our armed forces offer their limbs,their minds and even their very lives every day
and our memorial day should be spent remembering and thanking and praying for those veterans who gave their all for our country

Amen to that.

I'm surprised you couldn't figure that out before, John. I am the Jewish Messiah, the Muslim Mahadi, and the Christian Antichrist. Actually, I am the living God of Abraham.

Those three are all different and you need help. Please seek it out.

Either that or you're just playing a silly game.

Trey Gowdy , South Carolina Congressman, recently responded to a reporter about the military in response to a question from a CNN reporter about the DoD ban of transgenders from joining the U.S. armed forces. As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly.

Question: How can President Trump claim to represent all U.S citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military? Isn't that discrimination?

Trey Gowdy's Response: " Nobody has a right to serve in the Military. Nobody! What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? It is very far from it - and for good reasons - let me cite a few."

"The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers." he went on to explain: "By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head?

Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of push-ups? Not really a morning person? and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be legitimate reasons for denial"

"The Military has one job: Winning War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream? That isn't Fair? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful."

"YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around."

"I say again: You don't change the Military - you must change yourself. The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning.

The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars and keep our Country safe - PERIOD!"

"If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors."

"...any other questions?"
Trey Gowdy , South Carolina Congressman, recently ... (show quote)

He nailed it.

I certify to you that I have read everything you or Zemirah have posted in this thread at least twice, if not more when preparing my responses, and not once do I recall where anyone has quoted scripture where the apostles explained in detail (taught) or openly declared (preached), saying “God is three persons in one essence”.

You keep making the claim that I am twisting the scripture, and not listening to what you are saying. So, *if* (big if) that is true, please, for the sake of my soul, don’t make me search pages and pages of quotes, please just repeat for me here the scriptures that state, in biblical words, that “God is three persons in one essence”.

People have texted me that they agree with me. And we know Canuckus has shared my writings here with others. So if you won’t do it for me, and you truly are concerned about the souls who may be being persuaded by what I say, would you do it for their sakes?

Would you, please, quote for them, here, so they don’t have to go looking for a needle in a haystack, the scriptures that state that “God is three persons in one essence.”?

Because if you don’t or can’t, there are those reading who will read the scriptures that “command to teach no other doctrine” (1 Tim 1:3) and they may get the impression that is what you are doing.

And if you can’t or won’t quote scripture where the apostles openly declared that “God is three persons in one essence” they may get the impression that you are preaching another gospel which we are commanded not to do:

“6I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different "good news"; 7and there isn't another "good news." Only there are some who trouble you, and want to pervert the Good News of Christ. 8But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any "good news" other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed. 9As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any "good news" other than that which you received, let him be cursed.
10For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? For if I were still pleasing men, I wouldn't be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:6-9

So, again I ask you, if you won’t do it for me, and souls are at stake according to you, whom could be being swayed by my words, maybe not even today but reading later on, could you please quote the scriptures for their soul’s sakes, that say, without any extrabiblical words or phrases, that “God is three persons in one essence”?

If you could just do this, you could instantly prove how blind I am for not seeing what is in plain sight, and what a false teacher I am.

But if you can’t, I’m afraid they’ll see that I called your bluff and you couldn’t or wouldn’t deliver, even when their souls were at stake.

Because, by refusing to deliver the goods, you are proving, beyond doubt, that you are nothing more than a common con artist.

And that being the case, that all you have is a con job, void of any substance stated in the scriptures, then this next passage was written against you and those like you:

“17These are wells without water, clouds driven by a storm; for whom the blackness of darkness has been reserved forever. 18For, uttering great swelling words of emptiness, they entice in the lusts of the flesh, by licentiousness, those who are indeed escaping from those who live in error; 19promising them liberty, while they themselves are bondservants of corruption; for a man is brought into bondage by whoever overcomes him. 20For if, after they have escaped the defilement of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in it and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22But it has happened to them according to the true proverb, "The dog turns to his own vomit again," and "the sow that has washed to wallowing in the mire." 2 Peter 2:17-22

And to think all you have to do to prove me wrong is quote the scripture that says “God is three persons in one essence”.

“6He answered them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7But in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'
8"For you set aside the commandment of God, and hold tightly to the tradition of men
—the {trinity of persons in the godhead”}, and you do many other such things."
9He said to them, "Full well do you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. 10For Moses said, '{“Hear, O Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is one” Deut. 6:4} 11But you say, '{“God is three persons in one essence”} 12then you no longer allow him to {say “well that he is one, and there is none other but he and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more important than all -Mark 12:33-33}, 13making void the word of God by your tradition, which you have handed down. You do many things like this." Mark 7:6-13

You lose even more credibility when you claim those who believe and know God has a triune nature are cultists. Spin away my friend. You are lost on this subject.

Verse of the Day for Thursday, May 23, 2019

Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.—Acts 28:31

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So often, we give excuses why we can't do evangelism. Throughout his life, Paul shows us how lame our excuses really are! He is under house arrest and having to support himself, yet he still manages to get the Gospel out to the lost!

My Prayer...
Loving and Almighty God, forgive my excuses and my fear. Please make me bold to share your saving truth in the Gospel. May all who know me also come to know more about Jesus through me! In his precious name I pray. Amen.

We can go back to my example of a ball of clay, it has all of the elements of a vase, but it is not...yet, does that mean it IS a vase while it sits as a ball of clay, or...will it someday be. Now, as you say, when is that? Where is that line of demarcation?

There is also an ideology that physical life is everything, I don't hold that to be true.

As there is a spiritual afterlife, I believe there is also spiritual prior life in the beyond. What is above, there is below. Souls who choose this journey to the physical world, a learning experience to acquire a higher plateau of soul consciousness. As Jesus had a contract, we all come with contracts to fulfill, our free choices is a part of that and our outcome. Just my thoughts to share. I hope not to get too banged up for sharing this...
Great, glad yo hear it, I love exchanging thoughts... (show quote)

Do you believe we are here by choice? A friend of mine believes our soul existed before we were born but he’s never mentioned a choice.

I am about the rule of law that Trump has no more regard for than he does the bible, I believe in the policy of this country to allow you the freedom to believe in whatever god you want to, and that I do not have to share those beliefs.

The GOP failed to do their jobs holding the president accountable, now we will.

‘Now we will’

The party of ‘integrity’. The party of killing hundreds of thousands of unborn children every year and of supporting institutionalized child abuse will clean things up

Not a chance

You unfortunately live in a democracy based on the order of law, and a separation of church and state is crucial so that each person can be free to have whatever religious beliefs they choose so long as they do not interfere with anyone else's beliefs or freedoms.

Christians are only to obey the law if it doesn't go against God's law. Institutionalized child abuse goes against His law ergo it would criminalize Christianity.

One person one vote

Sure its valid. Who wants to have a few large cities be the deciding factor in how this country is governed? City folks are out of touch with the rest of the country.
