How come the God changed the whole process?
Before jesus the salvation was obtained by following the teachings of prophets.
How come the whole process changed when jesus appeared?
There is something "fishy" in this logic and that is the catch.
The 'Idea" that salvation comes thru the blood of Jesus in not what Jesus taught himself.
It was what St. Paul taught "claiming to be the Spokesperson for jesus"
And everyone knows that this St. Paul never met jesus and not learned anything from him.
So those who believe in the theory that "Salvation comes thru the blood of Jesus" are taking a great risk?
Suppose in the hereafter Jesus asks these fellows "Where Did I say that salvation comes thru my blood?" And you people say "Lord, Lord that what was St. Paul taught us"
And Jesus says "Who is this St. Paul? I never knew anyone by that name while I walked on this earth. Who is this person speaking in my name?
What would be you answer?
"Lord, Lord, forgive us, we were taken for a ride..."
Aren't you people, speaking so brazenly as if Jesus told you this personally!!
You are a fool, speaking as if you understand the Christian faith.
You have no idea that the prophecy of the old testament had shown that a NEW COVENANT would be made by the coming of the MESSIAH.
when you say that Paul wasn't alive during Jesus time, you do not know the full story about St Paul, and his interactions with with Apostles, particularly with St Peter.
What about the other Gospels? what about St Johns 6:53?
and Mathew 26:26, Mark 14:22, Luke 22:14. Finally St John (with whom Jesus mother Mary went to live with according to what Jesus had told her and St John to do) Gospel 53:54, "Whosoever eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life....etc"
I don't know what faith you profess to be, but you do not know what you are speaking about. I have read the Full Bible, not just the new testament. You conveniently extract that which you will choose to believe, you have NO FAITH. And through faith you will obtain understanding, and will act accordingly. Your kind of belief has another word, it is called Apostasy, which has wormed it way into the Christian church, and is destroying the church from within, just as a cancer does. You are a blindman trying to lead others into following you, while you yourself do not know the road to salvation. "Better to appear foolish, than to open you mouth and remove all doubt of your foolishness."

The Second Amendment
Posted on January 29, 2013 by Bulldog1

I received this letter from members of the SOF community on their concerns for America and the Second Amendment. This letter was signed by over 1100 members of the SOF community, of which the names will not be published as this is Active and Retired members.

Whether you agree with it or not, it is well worth the read.

Protecting the Second Amendment – Why all Americans Should Be Concerned

We are current or former Army Reserve, National Guard, and active duty US Army Special Forces soldiers (Green Berets). We have all taken an oath to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.…” The Constitution of the United States is without a doubt the single greatest document in the history of mankind, codifying the fundamental principle of governmental power and authority being derived from and granted through the consent of the governed. Our Constitution established a system of governance that preserves, protects, and holds sacrosanct the individual rights and primacy of the governed as well as providing for the explicit protection of the governed from governmental tyranny and/or oppression. We have witnessed the insidious and iniquitous effects of tyranny and oppression on people all over the world. We and our forebears have embodied and personified our organizational motto, De Oppresso Liber [To Free the Oppressed], for more than a half century as we have fought, shed blood, and died in the pursuit of freedom for the oppressed

The second part of the current debate is over “high capacity magazines” capable of holding more than 10 rounds in the magazine. As experts in military weapons of all types, it is our considered opinion that reducing magazine capacity from 30 rounds to 10 rounds will only require an additional 6 -8 seconds to change two empty 10 round magazines with full magazines. Would an increase of 6 –8 seconds make any real difference to the outcome in a mass shooting incident? In our opinion it would not. Outlawing such “high capacity magazines” would, however, outlaw a class of firearms that are “in common use”. As such this would be in contravention to the opinion expressed by the U.S. Supreme Court recent decisions.

Moreover, when the Federal Assault Weapons Ban became law in 1994, manufacturers began retooling to produce firearms and magazines that were compliant. One of those ban-compliant firearms was the Hi-Point 995, which was sold with ten-round magazines. In 1999, five years into the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, the Columbine High School massacre occurred. One of the perpetrators, Eric Harris, was armed with a Hi-Point 995. Undeterred by the ten-round capacity of his magazines, Harris simply brought more of them: thirteen magazines would be found in the massacre’s aftermath. Harris fired 96 rounds before killing himself.

The undersigned Quiet Professionals hereby humbly stand ever present, ever ready, and ever vigilant.

The agenda-driven cable media outlets
have stooped to a new low once again in
effort to (openly) support those pushing
a gun control agenda.
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir claimed that
supporters of gun rights attending a
public hearing on Monday interrupted
the testimony of Neil Heslin, the father
of Jesse Lewis, who was murdered at
Sandy Hook Elementary.
A selective edit of the 15 minute
testimony deliberately portrayed the gun
rights advocates as “hecklers,” by
showing some six seconds, including
statements regarding ‘the second
amendment shall not be infringed.’
What MSNBC chose NOT to show its
audience was the fact that Heslin, who
favors a ban on assault weapons and high-
capacity clips, asked the audience during
his testimony,“I ask if there’s anyone in
this room who can give me one reason, or
challenge this question: Why anybody in
this room needs to have an — one of
these assault-style weapons or military
weapons or high capacity clips?”
The response from so-called “hecklers”
came in an orderly fashion only AFTER
Heslin followed up on silence to his own
question, stating,“Not one person can
answer that question.”
The crowd was, in reality, only
responding to the claim that no one could
answer the question.
See the comparison of the actual
testimony with the MSNBC edit below:

Distraction and not relevant. YOU said Simpson was a SOURCE of WISDOM.

To answer the question, I would say that it would have been a long time ago and certainly it was not a staple. In addition I would have done so when I was at your current mental age. That would make it a lifetime ago.

I know actual facts annoy you (and elude you), but this is what he wrote:
"just because someone says something wise doesnt mean that they were historically real. This is the reason why we have fiction. You have no more proof that Jesus was real than I have that Homer Simpson was real. And that doesnt demean their teaching in any way."
Are you suggesting that the character of Homer never uttered any wisdom?(obviulsy as written by his creators)
Did Jesus ever utter any wisdom?(as recorded by the creators of the bible)
Former--Is Huggy saying there is absolutely nothing to be learned from fiction?

HughBe--- Son son, your man is saying that Simpson is the SOURCE of wisdom. Sit in a corner and THINK, for a change.

Personally I'm a Christian. So I believe deeply that Jesus is the Messiah. Jews don't. Yet we worship the same God. From a Christian (non Romanized) standpoint, I understand it like this. Salvation is offered to us through REbirth (the blood sacrifice of Jesus) in the manner that the Jews have salvation through birth. It's their birthright. He acted as our "skapegoat" if you will. Remember that from the old covenant? Blood had to be shed for our sins so he offered his. Again, that is just my understanding of it. I can completely understand why Jews don't see Messianic Judaism as actual Judaism. Because they don't believe Jesus is the Messiah. They're still waiting on him to come back. And I can respect their decision because I love the same God they do.
Justsay--Because they don't believe Jesus is the Messiah.

HughBe--- Not ALL hold such a view.

Are you saying that BIOLOGICAL Jews who are a part of that movement are not Jews? I ask because they certainly don't share the views of members of Judaism.

Again HISTORICALLY Christianity was regarded as a BRANCH of Judaism and so when you say "I can completely understand why Jews don't see Messianic Judaism as actual Judaism." you need to keep the FACTS of history in mind. Put it this way, Jews regarded it as a part of Judaism. Why? JEWS started Christianity.

3. Again, the rabbis of Judaism have a habit of redefining concepts to fit their agenda.

" Evangelicals use their political, financial and spiritual leverage to help Israel withstand whatever attack might come next."

Yes, and there are many Jews, myself included who are uncomfortable with some of the more right wing elements of the Christian support. Its for the WRONG reasons. Those people are bad news- they are bad news for Israel, and more importantly, bad news for my country (USA).

You can skeez over it whatever way you want but the fact is that Jewish people dont accept Jesus as their personal saviors. That is Christianity, not Judaism.
