I liked that also,Especially,the part where Jesus, before responding to her request, tested her faith,to make sure it was real,her response confirmed her faith was real,therefore the request was granted,based on her faith,as explained in Matthew 15:22-28
22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out,“Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”
23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him,“Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”
24 He answered,“I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”
25 The woman came and knelt before him.“Lord, help me!” she said.
26 He replied,“It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said.“Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”
28 Then Jesus said to her,“Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.
Amen!
Luke
2:9 And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory
of the Lord shone around them; and they were in great fear.
2:10 And the angel said to them, Fear not: for behold, I bring
you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.
2:11 For to you is born this day, in the city of David, a
Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

"shall be to all people"....
Thank you Jesus!

You really have no idea how your parents lived, that's very clear.
I know life was cleaner, more simple. People helped each other, cared for each other. You could trust, not wonder what everyone's motives were just because they offered a helping hand. Life is so sad now. Not knowing who your true friends are. I was raised to do right because I had a god to answer to. I feel bad for our children.

Revelation and prophecy has nothing to do with it unless you WANT an Armageddon to fulfill your fantasy.
Maybe if you stop praying for "Better" candidates like Romney and start nominating Better candidates THAN the ones you've helped elect we'll all be less troubled.

What's sad is that you're living in a depressed "reality" of your own creation.
I guess you must turn the tv off immediately after hearing about a tragedy and ignore everything following. You somehow miss out on all the reports of communities coming together to support the victims and restore their lives. You somehow miss the reports of people acting heroically and selflessly immediately after and even during tragedies.

Your post is typical of the small minded people who gobble up the BS that asshats like Glen Beck spew. Ignoring the facts. Facts like the violent crime rate in the US continuing to drop and reaching historic lows:

Or maybe you just have some crappy fiends and neighbors. You can fix that you know...

What kind of response is this to my post "What is God waiting on"?

Are you saying that when the rapture comes we will get Obama? If you wouldn't think so satanistic we might be able to communicate humanly.

An immense Caveat. My Personal Code of Conduct could be entirely acceptable to you, but representative members of Christian congregations, to the YaAs, Known Facts and curious', my Beliefs are abominable until the day that I profess to be "born again" in their religion. THAT, I find to be offending, insulting, criticizing and harmful.
I just find it to be a personal choice...often parental, and then as individual adults.
Twice is enough, after that, I prefer ingrained salt water refreshment of soul myself :-).

So, you believe that atheists are violating your freedom of religion? Is that what you're trying to say here?
No, that's not what I said.

I said (summarized) I don't believe in ANYthing that promotes hate, violence, chaos, anarchy or terrorising others in way, shape, form or fashion.

Our school was founded on beliefs of the bible. Schools began in churches. How could it be wrong to teach morals? To me, it's unconstitutional to not teach what our founding fathers believed so much in.
ok some things you posted are wrong completely .
first the for fathers wanted rdligion left out of stste and school . Two morals can be learned without a bible . three what you proposing is aginst the constitution . please if you have got this info from a church start checking what they say . I'm not. dogging church at all some people need it but there is a control aspect there that should not be there . The first steps is censoring what people are taught to what they think . that is how freedoms are lost and that is also what the churches do. jerry falwell jim stewart are a couple examples .
