After that sentence, you should avoid all word games like the plague.

You're still my Beantown hero, though.

When we gonna' square off?

I'll fight you fair.

That is, if you call it fair for me to chase you down and pound on your head.

The only hope is refusal to elect liberals. They are utopian, anti-liberty
Liberals are anti-liberty? We invented political liberty in the post-Enlightenment sense of the word, and are still named after it.

What do you think that the conservatives are trying to conserve? Since the Magna Carts, the struggle has always been between the conservatives like the Plantagenets and Bourbons trying to conserve wealth, privilege and political power for themselves, and the liberals trying to liberate it from them for ourselves.

You're welcome.

Liberalism poisons everything it touches.
It is my sincere wish for all of you ingrates who express opinions such as this one that they someday get a taste of a world free of liberal innovations. Not forever - just for a year. You would be singing a different tune if you survived it. I'd like to see Limbaugh in the Tower of London weeping over the skeletons of Richard III's nephews about his rights.

Can men be righteous?
Let’s look at the biblical definition of the word righteous.
righteous
RIGHTEOUS, a. ri'chus.
1. Just; accordant to the divine law. Applied to persons, it denotes one who is holy in heart, and observant of the divine commands in practice; as a righteous man. Applied to things, it denotes consonant to the divine will or to justice; as a righteous act. It is used chiefly in theology, and applied to God, to his testimonies and to his saints.
The righteous, in Scripture, denote the servants of God, the saints.
2. Just; equitable; merited.
And I thy righteous doom will bless.
http://av1611.com/kjbp/kjv-dictionary/righteo...
righ·teous
&#65532;adjective \&#712;r&#299;-ch& #601;s\
: morally good : following religious or moral laws
: caused by something that you believe is not morally right or fair
Synonyms
all right, decent, ethical, honest, honorable, just, moral, nice, right, good, right-minded, straight, true, upright, virtuous
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/rig...
To answer this question the thought comes to mind. Can men be unrighteous? The answer is yes and if that’s the case then men can also be righteous.
I didn't see an answer to the question in your post. Here's mine:

[3] Can men be righteous?

Yes and no.

According to Genesis 7:1,,Job 2:3, and James 5:16, Man can be righteous, whereas according to Romans 3:10, man cannot be righteous

When someone says "nothing in the Bible is true", they are full of shit.
That is my argument.
Sorry, nobody on here said that. As far as I recall, anyway. I know I didn't.

You're attempting (and failing at) a classic Strawman argument.

Oh my Dear Doctor, if you were to get off the freeway long enough to slow down and read the sign. You will see that my last sentence did answer your question. But I thankful Topix doesn’t erase our text so that everyone can judge for themselves.
