Pharisees

Matthew 23:1-39 ESV

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples,“The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat, so practice and observe whatever they tell you—but not what they do. For they preach, but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,...

Luke 18:10-14 ESV

“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus:‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying,‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Thank you for your faithfulness in which you are not afraid to speak of GOD and often.
Thank You R!
You do also.
I respect that in you.:)

I talk about Him, everywhere I go ...
He 'lives' in my life!

IF people can NOT accept me ...
BECAUSE of Him ...

The White race which is so vehemently attacked for black slavery happens to be the least race in the world to enslave fewer slaves in a shorter period of time.
Over 600,000 Americans were killed during the Civil War fighting for blacks and their right to freedom.
Among them were American Indians and blacks.
Many countries in the continent of Africa TODAY is still selling black people as slaves. The going rate is between $50 and $65. per person. Many African nations still genocide their own people. Many African nations commit female castration of genitals on very young female children. Many African nations starve and enslave in concentration camps their own race..........
Yet, we in American write, talk, fight, deliberate, protest and whine about one black teen who happen to have a shaky and dysfunctional background.
Due to one group of people who thrive on keeping racism alive and this includes Obama.
Then we call ourselves civilized.
Using that logic, Hitler wasn't really that bad.

Excellent post.
The Bible is very explicit in admonishing Christians to acknowledge Jesus publicly. It states it in many, many passages.
God Bless
The Old Testament says nothing about acknowledging Jesus publicly. Is the New Testament more correct than the Old?

Why is the Bible more correct than the Koran?

Which version of the Bible is accurate?

You're delusional, ain't cha'? This is the same way in which you are delusional about our President and the Bush legacy of The Great Recession he inherited.

You're dismissive of the obstructionist Republicans in Congress, and you have no comprehension about how predator capitalists and corporatists are driving the bus while opportunity in America continues to fall to the lowest levels in history and to compare so poorly with other first world nations.

In spite of all of this, you still can't tell us what Republicans are going to do for America and how we'll all benefit from enacting their policies that enrich the rich while imposing penalties and additional taxes on the already stressed and falling middle class and further harming the already poor and struggling.

I don't know what the heck it is you are wanting to see unfold, but it isn't anything I want want to see happen in America..

I feel great, but you making this personal is just one more example of how childish you people can be.

What caused the collapse of Detroit?

Two reasons:

1. 90% population liberal/blacks.

2. Unions

There has only been 1 Republican since the 1970's.

The majority of the local government is black and several have been imprisoned for stealing tax payer's money for their life style, lying, income tax invasion and criminal actions while holding office, etc.

Population has decreased from 1.8 plus million in 1950 to less than 600,000 today. Cities are supposed to be growing in size not decreasing.

So what does one expect Detroit to be----their utopia of yesteryear?

Bwahahahahahaha!

It is always funny when stooges like you believe that a person must maintain a singular opinion throughout life.

I bet you didn't know that Ronald Reagan was a Democrat in his early political career.

Hilary Clinton was once a Republican.

Those who ignore reality are doomed to live as you - in fear and jealous. Our nations have enemies who were once allies. We also have allies who were once enemies. Change is acceptable unless you are shallow minded.

The other stuff about job experience is supposed to do what? Did you intend to report for all just how interesting my life has been when compared with your own lives? I'll take it. I've never been bored, and I've learned new things and had new experiences for most of my adult years. Lots of fun, lots of learning, lots of diverse experiences. I wouldn't change a thing.
Karma? Truth? You'll eventually understand. I think you're a failure as a human being. I hope you grow. I hope you stretch. I hope somehow something happens that expands your mind and your consciousness.

Did you have a problem with what I said about Paula Deen? Let's go over this again. I don't live on a street named Plantation Drive, and I don't take anything you post seriously. I have no idea what you sound like, but I suspect you probably have a voice like fingernails on a chalk board if your posts are any indication of what could be expected.

BTW - isn't it time for you to change IDs again? Hurry it up.

This lecture coming from someone who lives on a street named Plantation Drive in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky!
OMG! LMFAO!
How can you be taken seriously NTR?
It's not awareness NTR.
It's political correctness.
There is a difference.
But a well seasoned race baiter such as yourself already knew that.
On Paula Deen:

<quoted text>Are you really that ignorant, that the Lame Stream Media dredge up something she said in private 30 yrs. ago, and crucify her with it?
NTR wrote:
IT's about her LACK OF AWARENESS today - not what she said and when. In fact, she's the woman who wanted to have a plantation themed event where all the "help" was black (as in slaves). Do you get that? Do you find that amusing and/or acceptable? IF you bothered to read the article, you would have at least had a basic understanding of why her apology is still all about Paula Deen and what's good for Paula Deen - nothing to do with any comprehension about prejudice and discrimination and how it affects and impacts minorities - particularly black Americans.
As long as you jokers are so ignorant, you just can't be taken seriously.

Don't try to snare me unclever devil, you'll lose everytime.
Your poor grammar has already made you fall on your face.

I have read the Old and New Testaments. I have read the Quran in English and Standard Arabic, thanks to Uncle Sam's immersion program years ago.

What would you like to know?

Now, as I have answered your query, do tell -

Why is the Bible more correct than the Quran?

Why is the New Testament the key to salvation instead of the Old Testament?

Take your time after you pick yourself up from the ground.

I'll give you that if you accept that elite white Republicans caused the economic collapse of Wall Street and the ensuing mortgage bubble burst.
