    I don’t think there is anything in a biblical context which would suggest that he was just a work of fiction. Like many things in the Scriptures, it requires faith.

    I have major problems with Pope Francis. Major concerns. This particular issue however is being overblown I think. He is actually giving a more nuanced and correct translation of the original Greek. Funny how so many people are jumping up and down about this, when one can pick up many modern English translations of the Bible and you find varying translations for words and phrases. The problem has to do with language in itself and the difficulty in correctly expressing at times what the original meaning in the original Greek meant. 1 Corinthians 10:13 - There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. God is almighty - He keeps the devil from tempting and allows also the devil to tempt. God doesn't do the tempting, but allows the Devil to do the tempting.. ala The Book of Job. Why does He allow this? Because in His great wisdom it can be a pedagogic experience for us, and may strengthen one, just as a contaminated metal is purified and strengthened when placed in a fire. God allows these temptations to happen by the devil so that like atheletes we may be be trained and prepared for when the most difficult trials occur (usually right after we die, when we are accused by the demons for the sins we have done and must pass through the spirits in the air who fight to drag us into the pit.).

    I've looked at plenty of data. It supports my stance. But the "data" is irrelevant. Your threat of commies is imaginary. Your solution -full throated Fascism- is very real. You want to fight the possibility of communism with the actuality of National Socialism and then tell be that is "freedom." I'm sorry. But I don't buy the line of militaristic police state bullshit you're serving.

    Bullshit. How do you think you are going to attack 11 million people and deprive them of their lives, liberty, and property without your roving bands of jackboots? How are you going to know who is and isn't an immigrant without national registration, tracing, and monitoring? How are you going to violate the property, association, and exchange rights of all 325 million Americans without using militaristic police violence to enforce your rule? How are you going to militarize the border and pay for your $25 billion+ in upfront costs and billions more in endless costs without the violence and theft of taxation? Or how you are going to prevent the free exchange of goods and services across borders without extortion, theft, and police state monitoring of said exchanges and the use of violence against those who don't follow your edicts? All of these things, and everything else required to bring about your vision, require a giant, expansive militaristic police state to force your will upon the masses. You're just another jackboot Progressive who wants to pretend somehow violating the Life, Liberty, and Property of millions of people and violating the US Constitution is warranted because it will create your perfect utopia. You're deluded and you either ignore or don't care about the real cost in liberty and blood that your policies require to force upon the millions of peaceful people who want nothing to do with them. Nationalist thugs like you are a scarier problem than any imaginary threat from abroad.

    How can I explain your delusion? You've yet to explain how creating a militaristic police state capable of spying on and tracking the movements of hundreds of millions of people, and beating, caging, and killing people for a nonviolent misdemeanor "crime" is "freedom." Or how violent regulation of the free exchange of goods and services across borders and the forced impoverishment of people on both sides is a "free" market. For all your ooga booga fearmongering of the suuuuper scary Mexicans, the only person trying to actively threaten the lives and freedom of every American citizen is you. You and your fellow jackboot licking police state thugs are far more dangerous than any foreigner because you're the only one actively destroying the rights of freedom of the people. Just like a good little Federalist. Hamilton would've loved you.

    You cannot give any organization the ability to beat, cage, and kill others and steal their belongings and call it "small" or "limited." No government has remained small.

    Life is a place of temptation. You don't need God to lead you anywhere. merely being born in it is enough. If you don't understand this, then read Romans. Paul talks about it quite a bit. In any case the scripture doesn't say what you assert. God leading you to a place where you can be tempted (as if that place were different from any other place in life) is still not God Himself tempting you. The scripture specifically says the Devil tempted Christ, not God.

    Hmm, don’t think that is the purpose. Probably to give a voice to the Patriots in this country who love this country. Also, likely it is to show a big enough crowd that the fake media won’t be able to ignore the true support the President has, that is, from the silent majority which they downplay or insult.

    I don't know. Seems like most of America is full of nationalist police state loving Federalists such as yourself. Your delusion is fairly common. Though it would probably be more accurately called brainwashing, but if you cared about facts you wouldn't love the jackboots and hate free market capitalism.

    Job is a poetic work meant to explore human suffering. Even if believe the Bible to be historic, Job was meant to be understood as a work of fiction. Also, God doesn't lead Job into temptation. He merely allows the Devil to do so.

    Creating a better translation is not a change. It is the opposite. If the current translation favored is inferior that means it was the one changed and the better translation restores the true meaning. The debate then is whether this is a better translation or not. I personally think that obsessing over the first part of the sentence separately form the second -"but deliver us from evil' is bound to lead one into error. Meaning can only be drawn from the entire sentence, not part of it.

    You're misapplying scripture. First, as the section you quoted clearly says, the wanring applies to "the prophecy of this scroll"- i.e. The Revelation/Apocalypse of John. Nothing else. Second, if the translation Francis favors is a better translation then it is clarifying what was truly meant and going with anything else is misleading and adding to the words ideas they weren't meant to carry.

    Indeed. The whole thing is a bit of nationalist idolatry. Everyday all through childhood you start the day by ritually pledging your body, mind, and obedience to the US government while repeating the lie of "liberty and justice for all" until you've brainwashed yourself into believing it. (This is called the "illusory truth effect" for anyone interested in looking it up.) All in front of the idol of the flag. As a piece of propaganda it is stunning. As a piece of mind control it is horrifying. But who can dney that it is effective with most people?

    Addendum: From the Jewish Virtual Library https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/anointing ‘In Israel, anointment conferred upon the king the ru'aḥ YHWH ("the spirit of the Lord"), i.e., His support (I Sam. 16:13–14; 18:12), strength (Ps. 89:21–25), and wisdom (Isaiah 11:1–4; see *Messiah ). The king absorbs divine attributes through unction. The anointment of the high priest served an entirely different function. It conferred neither ru'aḥ nor any other divine attribute.’ Does not appear that the Judges were anointed with Holy Oil, unless they were of the priestly ranks(?) The first use mentioned in the Scriptures of anointing a political figure is Samuel anointing David.

    I am assuming you are writing “CONstantine” as some form of derogatory manner which is unfortunate. I am also beginning to think that you have the idea that the Church fell way at some time and fell into complete apostasy only to be reclaimed again at some later date (a la Joseph Smith). In other words, you believe that the Holy Spirit failed, and that the historic Church disappeared when Constantine stopped the persecution of the Christians. That is very unfortunate and I respectfully suggest that you study more the ancient writings instead of following novel ahistorical and unfactual claims.

    If we start speaking relatively, then we can come up a whole bunch of assertions which may be ultimately way off the mark! Because it is a sin to kill, does not mean that, by necessity, the one who was killed had some unalienable right taken from them. If that was the case, then God would not have allowed for capital punishment, since it would infringe on the person’s right. The Israelites of the OT certainly didn’t speak of any such unalienable right, and neither did Christ. Our sins is not against persons, but against God, for disobeying His commandments. That doesn’t give us some right, even if we try to justify it by claiming relational reasons. Meanwhile, TJ wrote about God-given rights of liberty, while at the same time owning slaves. Ah! But, relatively speaking, ‘liberty’ can mean different things.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.
