    A lot. Pence was a compromise decision by Trump in playing the game. That was not his first pick. With Rand as VP, he is protected much more than with Pence whose full loyalties are in question. Also, Rand is young enough where he can succeed him after Trump is done and continue the platform and Trump’s legacy. Trump knew his greatest Republican challenger was Rand, just as the Dems knew. He knows that Rand has the ear of independents and even some liberals. He was proven himself in his prison reform suggestions, been a consistent Constitutional conservative with a populist freedom message, and has clout within the black community. There would be no better VP to run with him than Rand next go around. I think Trump knows that.

    Rand would be much more important as VP, especially given Trumps age and the amount of people who want to destroy Trump. If he is VP, his chance of one day becoming president is much higher than remaining as a senator and running again.

    Trump’s detente with Russia is one of his riskiest political moves to date, especially given the hysteria from the dems and the MSM regarding Putin and Russia. Now, Rand is going to Russia to speak with the leaders there. Who do you think is making those arraignments but Trump? It certainly wasn’t Bolton, who has finally seen the writing on the wall. When this move by Trump succeeds with Russia (and I believe it will), Rand would be remembered as one of the players who eased the strain and ushered in peaceful relations. He is being sent there as an ambassador to be groomed as the next in line.

    I believe Rand is being groomed to become the successor. He was always perceived by the DNC to be their greatest threat until Trump came and flipped the script. Since becoming President, Trump has treated Rand with respect and has listened to his advice, in particular with health insurance and likely with foreign policy. I would not be surprised if we see Pence ‘resign’ after this term ‘to spend more time with family’ and Rand be chosen as the VP in the next presidential election, in order to carry the torch another 8 years when Trump finishes his second term. A Trump/Paul ticket would likely lead to a blowout we have never seen before.

    The soul is simply the inner you… your mind, will and emotions. Do you have those things? If so, if you have a soul. Or more accurately, you are a soul. I think some people get the soul mixed up with the spirit.

    Obviously I wouldn't work for a company that demanded that. And it's extremely far-fetched, but if they all did that, it wouldn't matter because I have my own company, and I never want to go back to working for someone else anyway. I like being able to choose who I work with.

    Yes, I think we all agree that people are free to associate with who they want to associate with, and if they don't like a company's policies, find another place to work. As for influencing people, I see it differently. For example, when it comes to religion/faith, there are tons of scriptures throughout the Bible about sharing the Gospel, being a witness, taking the good news to the ends of the earth, etc. As for other things, there’s nothing wrong with trying to influence people, as long as no one is forced, and as long as it is done in an appropriate way. I'm sure there are many here who believe that we should try to influence people toward the message of liberty. The media/schools/powers-that-be are sure doing a good job influencing people in the opposite direction, so if we sit around and do nothing, how do we expect anything to ever change? But that's just what I believe, and I know that we all have different roles or 'callings' so maybe it's not for everyone.

    I didn't read the whole article, but it seems to me that they simply removed it from the food they serve at events and such… That is very different than telling people what to do on their own time. But if it was the latter, then I would agree with you.

    I kind of got that vibe from AF. But anyway, yes, let the free market work. It reminds me of a well-known café in England that recently took dairy completely off their menu, after watching the viral video "Dairy is scary." If people don't like that decision, they can take their business somewhere else. I haven't heard how their business is doing, but with all the attention they got for that, they probably got a ton more business for doing it.

    Why are you angry about what a private company does? You're not implying that they don't have the right to decide what to serve or not serve, are you? I for one applaud them for no longer offering decaying corpses on their menu.

    No matter how much we may study, it is not possible to come to know God unless we live according to His commandments, for God is not known by science, but by the Holy Spirit. Many philosophers and learned men came to the belief that God exists, but they did not know God. It is one thing to believe that God exists and another to know Him. If someone has come to know God by the Holy Spirit, his soul will burn with love for God day and night, and his soul cannot be bound to any earthly thing. - St. Silouan the Athonite

    Many rich and powerful men would pay dearly to see the Lord or His Most Pure Mother, but God does not appear in riches, but in the humble heart...

    Truth is not a thought, not a word, not a relationship between things, not a law. Truth is a Person. It is a Being which exceeds all beings and gives life to all. If you seek truth with love and for the sake of love, she will reveal the light of His face to you inasmuch as you are able to bear it without being burned. - St.Nicholas of Serbia

    How mistaken are those people who seek happiness outside of themselves, in foreign lands and journeys, in riches and glory, in great possessions and pleasures, in diversions and vain things, which have a bitter end! In the same thing to construct the tower of happiness outside of ourselves as it is to build a house in a place that is consistently shaken by earthquakes. Happiness is found within ourselves and blessed is the man who has understood this. Happiness is a pure heart, for such a heart becomes the throne of God. Thus, says Christ of those who have pure hearts: "I will visit them, and will walk in them, and I will be a God to them, and they will be my people." (II Cor. 6:16) What can be lacking to them? Nothing, nothing at all! For they have the greatest good in their hearts: God Himself! - St. Nektarios of Aegina

    A certain monk told me that when he was very sick, his mother said to his father, "How our little boy is suffering. I would gladly give myself to be cut up into pieces if that would ease his suffering." Such is the love of God for people. He pitied people so much that he wanted to suffer for them, like their own mother, and even more. But no one can understand this great love without the grace of the Holy Spirit. - St. Silouan the Athonite,

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
