Only to those that have a limited education or intellect.... When someone such as your fine self knows so little most people will seem all knowing....
You only assume that I have limited education. I will not lower myself to your level but I will allow someone else to break it down and explain the word ‘assume’ to you. As far as education I would rather have good ole common horse sense than the best education that can be had. If ones like yourself have a head full of book learning but don’t have enough common sense to twiddle your thumbs, what benefit is your so called education?

The benefit of my so called education is that it allows me the knowledge base to to make the terminally stupid, such as your fine self, admit they are as dumb as a Horse and think it a good thing...

And by the way if you can crank up them fine horse senses you might want to go back a bit and see that I never and any point Assumed anything... What I did along the way was to allow you to at any point display Intellect... To which you failed badly... I made no assumptions.... You see I long ago I thought up a quote that actually is very apropos at this point...

Ephesians 3:17-19
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Life is a series of ups and downs, and each one of us has gone and will go through periods of trial. Knowing that, what is it that gets us through these times, to come out better (not bitter) and stronger? I believe it is faith, hope and love; faith that the Lord will be with us and bring us through these times, hope in the Lord's perfect plan for us, and realization of the God's great love for His children. However, when troubles come in plenty and the soul is weary, most of us find our spirits drooping. At times like these, encouragement can come from many sources, the Bible being one of them. Bible verses can be very helpful in raising our flagging spirits, and giving us the strength to carry on. I have heard many people testify for the Bible's unfailing power to speak to human beings, and provide the exact message that one needs. Personally, in times of strife, these words resonate in my mind, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Great post!
Romans
1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the
power of God to salvation to every one that believeth; to the
Jew first, and also to the Greek.
1:17 For in this is the righteousness of God revealed from faith
to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all
ungodliness, and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in
unrighteousness.
1:19 Because that which may be known of God, is manifest in
them; for God hath shown [it] to them.
1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are
made,[even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are
without excuse:
1:21 Because that when they knew God, they glorified [him] not
as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools:
1:23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an
image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and
four-footed beasts, and creeping animals.
1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the
lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between
themselves:
1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and
served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for
ever. Amen.
1:26 For this cause God gave them up to vile affections. For
even their women did change the natural use into that which is
against nature:
1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
woman, burned in their lust one towards another; men with men
working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves
that recompense of their error which was meet.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their]
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those
things which are not convenient;
1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters,
inventers of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural
affection, implacable, unmerciful:
1:32 Who, knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such
things are worthy of death; not only do the same, but have
pleasure in them that do them.

If God created everything,(Colossians 1:16, Ephesians 3:9, Revelation 4:11 & John 1:3), then he did create the world’s evil (Isaiah 45:7, Lamentations 3:38). Thus, he is responsible. Any being who could create situations such as rape, death, malnutrition, disease, molestation and murder is certainly not fit for worship.

He didn't create those situations... Man's heart is Evil!

For justice to exist, punishment must fit the crime. No matter how many bad deeds one commits in this world, there is a limit. Yet, hell’s punishment is infinitely greater. It’s eternal.

God is Good!
He gave you a way out of hell!
Belief in His Son Jesus!
That's ALL you have to do...
John
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten
Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him may be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him, is not condemned: but he that
believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil.

BOSTON - Democratic Rep. Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, and even through appearances on Fox News, according to Al Green, a Democratic congressman from Texas.

North Carolina will no longer fund Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider.
Republican lawmakers voted to end all state contracts with private providers of family planning services, overriding Gov. Bev Perdue's veto of de-funding the group for the second time.
The move redirects more than $343,000 from Planned Parenthood to county health departments.

Hey, Yikes and Amoron. Frank and Ready met at a fundraiser. Sandusky is a Republican - and so are Larry Craig and Mark Foley.

NAMBLA? You DO post like a priest, now that you mention it.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
There is a lot of good in The Heavenly Father, but to teach it to a stone will not make the stone move. Education begins at home. If your parents have not folded their hands before their meal or knelt to pray prior to bedtime, do you actually think some prejudiced teacher at some liberal school will change his way? Some think Jesus Died on the cross for the sins of the world. He died for the sins of his children, the saved. Then the question arises, whether one has to be a sheep and roll over because to defend ones self is against the turn the other cheek precept, right! Christianity is one of the newest, bloodiest religions ever since the inception of any religion.
Priests raping little boys, the Jehovah Witnesses taking and making key phrases in their Bible to suit them.
When Our Lord Hung on the cross, there was very little written because writing utensils were premium and the fact that reading and writing were nil, so then it went from mouth to mouth and the preacher would have you believe that everything was word for word!!? The first gospel was penned almost a century post JESUS' death and resurrection, if in fact, this incident transpired, and made it through 327 AD, the convention at Nice, when the bishops took and burned 90 plus percent of the holy writ and kept the few items of supposed importance to keep the populance ignorant so that they would pay indulgences!
Heaven or hell is what we make of it. I have seen with my own eyes, as a child, some fat priest try to rape a little boy, a friend of mine, of which I broke up the party, which was called christian youth organization, So I stole the wine out of his refrigerator and the pepperoni and took the kid to the beach and we ate and spoke of what was going on. Ten years ago, he and his brother took and blew their heads off. The priest that did this died of a heart attack in the convent dancing with the nuns.
When I was to be baptized, the Priest took and told my DP father, Dachau graduate, and my god parents at the Catholic church "No money, No Baptism" So dead old dad had a few choice words for him and we went to the Lutheran Church and got it done toot sweet, for free. The preacher said that it was not holy ot deny a service to an infant, baptism on account of money. They still hide the Cretins who sodomized the children in the Roman Catholic Church. I see it in this days paper on the counter. Jesus will not be happy in the coming of the last of days. We will all pay our debt.

Education comes through life's journey, whether or not out in the street or in some school. Common sense wins

Every Bible man has their own interpretation and seeks out the money from the congregants. Go to Buffalo N.Y. Look down Broadway street and see all the empty Catholic Churches, Big splendid buildings, Why are they now empty and fenced off. The priests are wolves in sheep's clothing.
You want salvation, go to your prayer closet and what you ask for in secret the LORD will openly give it to you.
Teaching the Bible in school depends on the qualifications of the teacher. Once, there was this pair of well dressed who came to my door professing the LORD. I told them to testify. You would have thought, by their look, I had hit them in the head with an axe handle. If you cannot testify, how can you teach.
This begins at home, Prayer is not a form of art to be pencil and paper tested on, it is a style of life,
When a child, I was saved. Learned to speak, read and write German from comparing the KJV of the bible against Martin Luther's Bible. Went to Southeast Asia as a Killer, saved? yes or no? Yes, Kill? Yes. Did David Kill? yes. Did Solomon kill? Yes. School is rife with idiot teachers and administration, and then teach the bible after this country took Marilyn Murray O,Hare who made it possible to be out. stay out, because the teachers would not be qualified to teach what they do themselves not understand.
