Google number of churches in Rhea county-sex, drugs, rock and roll followed closely by churches-beautiful buildings and many in the world starving-yep, Jesus is proud. Will purchase $5000 in bibles, if POPE will deliver to IRAN.

It will all come crashing down sooner or later. The Government will eventually step in with enough regulation to stop these lazy, Tax dodging, people who start a church so they don't have to work like any other self respecting human.

It's just another form of welfare, except with syrupy country gospel music.

why do you pretend that government is some sort of savior?the government is the biggest, laziest tax dodging bunch of them all.how much tax dollars are elected officials paid and how much money is skimmed off the top.how many friends and family get government jobs.ever notice how even small town government workers have much better insurance,holidays,benefits than we do at our jobs.a government employee is no better than a person that is 100 percent reliant on the government for food,housing and money.the real losers are those of us too crazy or prideful to work and earn what we have.

What an ignorant response! First you say that people from the Government dont work, then you say they have Jobs! I guess you feel soldiers are the lazy tax dodgers huh? The military is the largest recipient of "Government Jobs". What about Judges, Police, Fire, Teachers, etc? These people show up every day and work hard, unlike the average "private sector" guy at McDonalds or Lay Z Boy!

Take your Tea Party BS somewhere else, and look around you.

I think everybody acts hypocritical from time to time.. sometimes on accident.. the trick is to correct yourself after making a statement to that effect.

Billy, you say "the trick is"... Why should there even be a "trick"? Just asking.

I think hypocrisy comes from a "lie", a falsehood, an untruth. We all have expierenced times where we say something we know is "a lie", and although in doing so, at that particular point on time, we feel vindicated, accepted, winning or what may, but underneath all that lies is the "truth".

The truth is, when we lie we may fool and convince others, but never can we gaze into a mirror and convince ourselves that "a lie" is "a truth". I dare not ever want to carry such burden of carrying a lie, an untruth or an injustice on my heart and soul. I need my clear conscience so that I know what I said or believed I did so faithfully.

Therefore, just the simple act of being "just and truthful" we eliminate the hypocrisy and feel at least a marginal degree of peace of mind.

Just my opinion.

Therein lies the real problem.

How can you lead an average protestant "baptist style" church in the south and NOT lie willingly?
You can't reconcile the NT doctrine of loving your neighbor, turning the other cheek and forgiving the trespasses of others with the nationalistic doctrine of Manifest destiny, Pro-war/military, collateral damage, etc. Yet they do. They more and more want to become part of the government solution by getting involved with politics, etc.

Add to that the flawed arguments of the afterlife, blaming/attributing everything to God, and more and basically what you have is nothing more than a nonsensical amalgam of contradicting beliefs.

That's why most of the churches being referred to teach scripture very little (usually paraphrasing), prey on the emotional whirlwind of the average undereducated person and provide them with plenty of entertainment to distract the people from the lack of substance behind their words.

But in the end when presented with the choice of healthy food and diet, or junk food we can clearly see what most people choose.....the religious diet is much the same, people just filling up on junk without caring what damage is being done.

Who among us is to stand up and say before all that, I'm the hypocrite. I'm the one that you speak of. I'm the sorry a$$hole. Even then, what would anyone do about it? Puff up. Swell up, exact what would you do. Stand up for a just cause, doubt it. To do so sounds so, sounds so, all "William Wallace-ish. Count me out.

Mr. White, I would suggest sir that you aquaint yourself with the history of the American Revolution if you would like to know the true "Baptist way". Please research Isaac Backus' writings on Liberty of Conscience and the role of Preacher Leland in securing woth the help of Madison our Bill of Rights. Then Sir, you may well speak with authority. If not for the Virginia Baptists you would not have the rights I am sure you so well cherish.

You sir, assume too much.

First off I will not undervalue the efforts made by people through the years to secure freedoms, from politicians, commanders and soldiers, to lawyers and organizations who protect the rights of those who may not be able to defend themselves against larger more powerful forces.

That being said, you have not addressed anything that I stated earlier, and therefore are just making noise like so many other hypocrites or perhaps just trying to promote yourself or your opinions.

Now that you have made yourself the expert on the "Baptist style" Protestant church, I ask the following:

Please give us historical citation of Protestant churches advocating "Manifest Destiny "......????

We will patiently wait while you do your research or can you give historical evidence from the "cuff"?
