    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?

    I got no love for CNN or Commies, but I got to laugh at how easily so many here fall for Breitbart's propaganda. Here is the quote form the article: Notice the selective highlighting of the quote to make it sound like the CNN guy supported Antifa violence. But let me emphasis what he actually said: Wait, he said Antifa were wrong to hit? But I was told this was supposed to justify violence not eb told that violence was wrong!

    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.

    I never claimed to judge the eternal salvation of TJ, which is up to God, so your judging my intent is false. What I am judging is his claim that we are born with inalienable rights, which is simply not true and definitely not based on any teachings of Christ.

    Correct observation. These laws however do not mean that we have some inalienable right, but rather that God has decreed certain laws whereby if we follow them, we will live. Actually He has. The only political structure which has been ordained by God is the monarchy. Not to say that others do not have benefits or value, but rather that if we are strictly speaking to what political structure which God has blessed on account of our weakness, it is the monarchical system, with anointed and ordained kings. People do not sin against other people. Rather, they sin against God. Even when someone’s life is taken, the sin is not against the person who was killed, but rather against God. Like King David said in his epic psalm (51) of repentance for murdering Uriah:

    Yes, he said that. But where did Christ say that? Or where did the Bible say that? Just because Thomas Jefferson said it, doesn’t mean it is true. I am speaking as a Christian. Of course, people can believe what they want, and side with TJ on this matter or with TJ in denying Christ was the Incarnate Son of God. I am simply saying to my fellow Christians, be careful who you follow.

    Where does it say that in the Bible? Does God owe us something that we can demand such a right? This applies to premeditative murder. This doesn’t mean we have an absolute right to life. Rather, it demonstrates that murder is a grave sin before God because (ultimately) it is a violent act towards God Who is the Creator. It is not because we have some unalienable right.

    Matthew 18 The Lord said this parable: "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents; and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, 'Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.' And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, 'Pay what you owe.' So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you.' He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt. When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?' And in anger his lord delivered him to the torturers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart." +++ Some would say that the king was unfair because he should not have punished the servant who demanded his debt be repaid from the other servant. After all, it was the first servant’s money which he has owed, which he worked for and was the fruit of his labor. Why should the king get involved? Until one realizes that everything we have, even the fruit of our labor, is ultimately on loan from our king (God).

    None of those verses come close to saying what Thomas Jefferson said, namely that God has given us any inalienable rights. BTW, I didn’t say TJ didn’t believe in God. He was a Deist. Not a Christian.

    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.
