Lol....Every time you don't have a response you call people out on.....something.

If you could, as you have claimed, ignore Muslims praying at your local school board meeting one would think you could ignore some mild profanity from your fellow posters.

sry.

Just answering previous poster's claim that liberal laws have cause our great god-fearing country to stumble a bit.

P.s.

JESUS was extremely political, right?

I was led astray and tempted by the fruit of another---

Why do so many debates about religion turn into debates about politics? Hmmm...

I wouldn't have a problem with discussing politics in the Christian forum, just saying, anything said is subject to being deleted when speaking of politics in this particular forum.

Holy, holy, holy!!!

Who can argue with that lily white view.

Bit let me be more circumspect in responding to your self-righteousness: in Troutdude's famous line--"That's a load of bovine excrement."

Now, don't we all feel better? I know I do!!

What is the cause of America’s Moral and Spiritual Decline? Easy answer: sin. We see the effects of sin everywhere: a corrupt, prideful, conceited, government, vulgarities in tv, movies, and music, unrestrained corporate avarice, etc. And then, the sin that resides in all of us and comes out in many ways: pride, fear, worry, anger, lust, greed, judging, etc.

Is it possible to reverse the decline? I'm not sure. If it is possible, it will be because of all believers coming together to pray for each other and the lost. Believers will need to stop living like the world. We need to value reading the Bible more then obsessing over the latest smartphone or smartphone apps. We need to get more excited about going to church than seeing our favorite sports team. And, even though I myself like movies once in a while, and watch some tv, all believers know deep down that 99.99% of all movies/tv we shouldn't watch.

We need more christian sharia law? Is that the ONLY possible way to "fix" our society? Let's all gather round, read some fairy-tales and listen to some softly-spoken magic spells?

The problem is the bible--too many want a nation ruled by it and others reject the myths out right.

We really do NOT need a book written by patriarchal men to tell us how top get along..

RESPONSE: Ah yes. The famous "read the Bible" as a fix for everything. Most of the world's major religions have a similar matre about their Holy Book too.

But what is simply overlooked is that "creation" including man is imperfect. The first awareness of this was blamed on "sin."

Unless we accept the six days of creation story, the claim that because of man's sin death entered the world, it must have been very, very crowded before Adam and Eve ate that apple.

Perhaps we need to thank them for creating some space for us!
