    God is not indebted to high minded individuals who presumptuously aim to "amend," or update the immutable truths of the Bible. Instead, we need to be willing and able to "rightly divide" the Word of Truth. It is already obvious what the 25th chapter of Matthew is saying to untold generations. The expression, "the least of these" is helpful, inasmuch as it alludes to the very real interpersonal perception of folks who, for whatever reason, think less of others. It does NOT imply an embedded prejudice within the Holy Writ itself.

        The fact that they still believe that historical carvings still has values do still matter to them, to say " the least" in values that no one is above or below the earth plane, not below ground, or above in the heavens, we can make earth as good as heaven, or bad as hell, as you want your country to be, that's a choice.

              I just read Matthew 25: 33-40... And its says CLEARLY.. --- If you did ALL these things to the least of them (folks on serious hard times) , you have in the same have done it to me. Saying He is with the afflicted and you have done right by Christ. (And don't do it to get something back, Compassion IS NOT for self-gain.) Then it goes on to say, those who have done the total opposite is not of Me.. Depart from Me, says the Begotten Son... Clearly... Those who have 👀 let them see, and those with 👂 let them hear... ijs frfr

                              Hi, Stephen. We love all that you do. You present a uniquely critical persona, a very necessary and capable jester and cut up. I wish to consider, however, the extent to which our mutual fun with the idiot president may otherwise be distracting us from those for whom every president seemingly provides a distraction.

                                The fact that they have historically carved their names in desks makes me think that in some ways we are all still children.

                                    Doing for less significant others (like not your own family, friends, or donors you’re indebted to) is just like Sanders #notmeus Ain’t it amazing how the main scream media omit him, diss him & Tulsi & Marianne. Both of which anyone would do well/better, learn much more by listening to. Bernie only takes small individual donations so will support all people’s causes, since we all share common causes. This election is so important we need not just anybody but Trump but someone who swings the poli pendulum way far in the other direction. Finally stepping into the new will be fun, relieving, phew!

                                        It's very disturbing to see that an elected official believes in an imaginary sky daddy.

                                              Trump will be the first POTUS to serve prison time. His jail cell will be a cage with razor wire surrounded by the very fence he once posed in front of.
                                              Moat optional.
                                              The federal prison will be located in Mexico (New). The warden, will be the son of immigrants.
                                              Melania will divorce him, but not remarry her black Jewish boyfriend. The alimony will go directly to an address in Harlem N.Y.
                                              However he will not be separated from his children, in cell block "T"
                                              Comforting to know he will be afforded a view of the local public golf course.
                                              And Rudy Colludiani, will be his Pen-itentiary Pal, from a SDNY facility.

For the small price of your basic faculties of thought, reason, and inquiry suspend your disbelief, permanently, so the passage to a theme park upstairs will be assured.

                                                          The pin is a canary in a cage, like the canaries that coal miners carried down into the mines when they worked to warn them of dangerous gas buildup. Brown got the pin from a union worker and he wears it pretty much all of the time as a show of support for the workers' rights movement. He tells the story of the pin quite often in public appearances. And yes, Brown's gravelly voice is a bit weird at first. It's always been that way and I supposed I've gotten used to it. Regardless, he's a great senator and the people of Ohio are lucky to have him.

                                                          I think that was a bit of a petty issue with the scripture. But I don't necessarily have a problem with studying with different translations. I usually partner KJV with "The Message." But revelation comes with relationship. Not worth an announcement IMO. But on the other hand. Its cool to get the Word out.

The original vernacular made perfect sense, it was the meaning behind it he seems to disagree with. Picking and choosing what to believe from religious texts is a pet peeve of mine. Granted, this one is minor and I admire him for recognizing his disagreement with the text.

Yeah, like when he fucked a 9-year-old girl, or when he had all of the male Jews of Qurayza beheaded and for not wanting to be resettled, or when he gave the wives and children of these men to his followers to do with them as they wished, or when he raided town after town to convert them, or when he sold the captured women of those towns into slavery after making them watch the executions of the town's men, or when he allowed his soldiers to rape captive women and slave girls, no matter how old the girls were.
