Ray Comfort : "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 5:43-45)
These particular words were spoken to and written for Christians, because if you love God and stand for what He stands for, you will be hated by those who hate and deny Him. When we love those that the Bible calls our enemies, pray for them, and tell them the truth about the reality of Hell and the need to repent and trust the Savior, we are merely imitating God. He shows them great kindness. He gives them life, and allows them to enjoy the life-giving sun and rain—without which we would all be dead.
Billions of people have come and gone in this life, but all of them fall into just two categories—the just and the unjust. Either you are justified (made right with God by His grace in Jesus Christ), or you are in your sins and will face the justice of God on Judgment Day. Which category are you in today? Please give this question serious thought, because you may not be here tomorrow.

Gil Gillon : How about an end to tax exempt status for political parties and churches? Really, if your only argument is "I am right and you are wrong based on emotion and no empirical evidence," then you are really more a part of the problem. If anything, you should pay more for producing nothing of value-just like the financial services industry. 17 hours ago - View -

Fibro Colors : Mindy would like to ask for prayers for her Father!
Matthew Slotkin : When average people feel they have no other choice | NC Policy Watch “These are strange and difficult times in North Carolina. Despite its fast-growing, outward-looking, ever-more-diverse and globally-connected population, the state has taken a hard and destructive political turn backward and to the right. Thanks in large measure to a combination of the Great Recession, the largely uninspired performance it provoked in then-Governor Bev Perdue and the mid-term electoral meltdown it spurred for Democrats in 2010, an increasingly modern and progressive state has been transformed almost overnight into a Tea Party lab experiment run amok.” ---Rob Schofield, NC Policy Watch 1 day ago - View -

Kavicandra Swami : In the Hari-bhakti-vilasa it is stated that if one bona fide spiritual master is born in a brahmana family and another qualified spiritual master is born in a sudra family, one should accept the one who is born in a brahmana family. This statement serves as a social compromise, but it has nothing to do with spiritual understanding. This injunction is applicable only for those who consider social status more important than spiritual status. It is not for people who are spiritually serious. A serious person would accept Caitanya Mahaprabhu's instruction that anyone conversant with the science of Krsna must be accepted as the spiritual master, regardless of his social position. There is an injunction in the Padma Purana which states that though a highly elevated, spiritually advanced devotee of the Lord may have been born in a family of dog-eaters, he can be a spiritual master, but that a highly elevated person born in a brahmana family cannot be a spiritual master unless he is a devotee of the Lord. A person born in a brahmana family may be conversant with all of the rituals of the Vedic scriptures, but if he is not a pure devotee he cannot be a spiritual master. In all sastras the chief qualification of a bona fide spiritual master is that he be conversant in the science of Krsna.

Tripp Halstead Updates : Stacy: Tripp is doing great. He is sound asleep with no arching and a perfect heart rate. Since I got zero sleep last night, mom is staying with him and I am getting to bed before midnight. ( maybe before 11, woo hooo) Thank you mom! I pray he has a great night. He is so extremely over tired from getting no sleep last night, working hard in therapy and no long nap today. So he should sleep all night, if not, I am just down the hall and told mom to come get me. Hope all of you have a great night. Love you all and thank you for the prayers and support during this time in our lives. 2 days ago - View -
Mike Huckabee : Those who lament that America doesn’t have a government health care system like the British do might want to take note of this story. The Sunday Express reports that it’s so difficult to find a dentist who’ll accept patients under the National Health Service that up to a third of Britons no longer have an NHS dentist. It’s led to a surge of people buying do-it-yourself dentist kits, so that they can glue down their own loose fillings and even pull their own teeth. And why is it so hard to find a dentist? The government says they have to provide care free or below cost. But dentists say the government has slashed reimbursements until it’s not worth their while to provide expensive dental services. But don’t worry, that could never happen here…right? 2 days ago - View -
Patrick McHenry : Congressman McHenry Urges Colleagues to Repeal ObamaCare Last week I spoke with a constituent who had her hours cut at the local grocery store because they didn’t want to adhere to the expensive requirements that go along with ObamaCare. As a result, she was no longer able to afford the $140 a month she was paying for her own private health insurance plan. Now she’s left with no option but to pay a hefty fine or accept government healthcare. That’s why I spoke on the House floor just moments ago and urged my colleagues to repeal this devastating law. After hearing from constituents who are already suffering the painful consequences of ObamaCare, Congressman Patrick McHenry took to the floor of the House t...

Breezy Kiefair : In the state of Arizona, according to their "rules for criminal procedure" how much time is the state allowed between indictment and arraignment? If a prisoner is indicted and they fail to arraign them within a certain amount of time does the prisoner go free?

Justin Amash : There will be huge long-term harm to the Michigan Republican Party if we put up an anti-civil liberties, pro-corporate welfare Senate candidate. I won't let that happen without a fight. This is 2013, not 2003 or 1993. Such a candidate not only doesn't appeal to conservative Republicans, who care deeply about liberty and the Constitution, but also would continue to tarnish our party's image with moderate, independent, young, and ethnically diverse voters.
We must begin to win statewide general elections for Senate and President. We need to stop catering to the political class elites and start caring about the rights and freedoms of regular people. More of the same means our party becomes irrelevant. 3 days ago - View -

Peter Marais : I am constantly asked why I blame only the ANC and not the DA. HERE IS MY REASON.;
When you are given a prescription by your doctor ,you usually take it to a pharmacy which dispense the medicine to you.
If the medicine makes you sick then who should you blame. The pharmacy or the Doctor? The ANC is the doctor; the DA is only the pharmacist. Think about it when you talk about the Equity Act. The dr need to give us a new prescription. not so? 4 days ago - View -
Budd Jenning : A little bit of Me, and whole lot of Martin
You are put in a position of supporting your oppressor, because through prejudice and blindness, you fail to see that the same forces that oppress Negros in America society oppress poor white people. And all you are living on is the satisfaction of your skin being white, and the drum major instinct of thinking that you are somebody big because you are white. And you so poor you can’t send your children to school. You ought to be out here marching with every one of US every time we have a march. (My Lord)
