Look, "Norton"! So you think that I do not have common sense. Fair enough!

I don't think that you have ANY sense!

And, yes -- I am sure that the fatcat healthcare industry will continue making profits, but hopefully not as much as the obscene profits they are making now. The "Affordable Care Act" forces the healthcare industry to provide a certain percentage of its receipts for healthcare benefits to its subscribers -- or REFUND a percentage!

From the IRS -- Medical Loss Ratio (MLR):

Beginning in 2011, insurance companies are required to spend a specified percentage of premium dollars on medical care and quality improvement activities, meeting a medical loss ratio (MLR) standard. Insurance companies that are not meeting the MLR standard will be required to provide rebates to their consumers beginning in 2012.

NORTON, NORTON, I believe you're getting older....but common sense? Come on! That includes the ability to use new, changing information to adapt.....you do not display that attribute. Christians in general are doing a great job though. There are over 50 versions of the Bible now (in English) to make sure inerrancy evolves.
I have always loved this quotation, used by Thoreau when he was lambasted by someone incorrectly with the same old 'common sense' nonsense:

"There is absolutely no common sense; it is all common nonsense."

People use the 'common sense card' when their argument holds less water than an adult diaper.

I agree with your post—thanks for the response. It is good to find intellectual Christians who take the time to think and not react with their gut only.

All things are a result of Free Will—that's what God gave everyone including you. Use it to abuse sarcasm and poor Christian insults. I admire good sarcasm—when will you provide some?

They are already making obscene profits afforded them by the new ObamaCare. If you believe those prices will be reduced because the government is involved, you have never studied governance and its inherent lack of skills required for anything beyond the superficial. You are biased and naive—and those are your most endearing traits.

It reminds me of the plot by the Obamites to raise gasoline prices to equal those of Europe, so they could tax us into oblivion. The prices went up and never came down. The government is like a heroin addict—you give them more, and they will require more.

Anything that the government becomes involved in, they screw up. Take the Post Office as the best example. They are obsolete and will be out of business soon. Private enterprise will take over and do it better—unless the socialists like you take over and destroy private enterprise altogether.

And I appreciate your posts as well....your quote is most appropriate. NORTON probably has a true grasp on HIS interpretation of the Bible but he is so enamored by his self professed 'common sense' he is undaunted by obstacles such as facts. When he is contradicted he's perfectly comfortable in his oblivion.
NORTON judges my concepts of Christianity as evil and irreverant because I call his narrow-mindedness a handicap. I am inclined to believe God exists but I like to think He has enough self confidence to invite mortals to exercise free will by asking questions and looking for answers.
I've encouraged NO-NO-NORTON to investigate beyond the KJV Holy Bible. Missouri Baptist University has an extensive collection of texts not only about Christianity and the Bible; but also on Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, atheism, satanism, etc. Their philosophy is a better understanding of spiritual beliefs provides a broader worldview rather than blasphemy as construed by NORTON.

What are you....one of those New Agers? I could care less about those other religions. They are cults! The Holy Bible is all I need. The Bible says not to add to it or take away from it. You need to study some eschatoloty and find the real truth. We all have a free will. Adam and Eve had a free will. The disobeyed God and you see where that got them. That is how sin started. That is why we are all sinners. Jesus died for our sins..........AND all we have to do is believe that. How much more simple can that be? People try to make it so complicated. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit is the unforgiveable sin. I don't need a broader view........the truth is in the Bible. People have tried to destroy it but they will never get that done. I hope if Missouri Baptist Univ. has all those other text it is to prove they are all cults. We have a free will to go to heaven or hell. It's up to each individual.

Eric Holder: Obama Decides Who’s ‘Entitled’ to Second Amendment Rights

Attorney General Eric Holder, an Obama administration official implicated in the Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal, provided his views on gun control at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia. During the exchange, Holder discussed the president expanding the list of those who are not ‘entitled’ to the possession of handguns.

Yet, removing handguns from those deemed to be a threat by the government defeats the purpose of the Second Amendment. After a citizen has displayed threatening behavior towards himself or others, and after being given due process protections in a court of law, that person can be judged and incarcerated for his own protection and the protection of others.

~ A very poor example of a man let alone the head of the DOJ

I admire your loyalty to God, I'm not trying to convince you to diminish that relationship. But I'm just a ol hillbilly from Missouri that grew up thinking more knowledge is a good thing - it's not destructive unless you have that trait in your personality.:

First, you are hardly a hillbilly. They have distinct features such as three ears, a propensity for looking cross-eyed during thunder storms, and an inability to do higher mathematics without an adding machine.

Now let me set this straight—Norton puzzles me. He is correct with his assertion that you are not to 'add nor take away', yet he should tell that to those who added The Rapture.

Knowledge is a wonderful thing, and although Christ admonished those who ridiculed the 'simple and unlearned', once again followers oversimplified his teachings much like his quotation about "The Eye of the Needle". The Eye was a specific place in the walls of Jerusalem, where camels and animals of burden were forced to kneel to enter the city's gates, and crawl upon their knees. It was built that way to make it difficult for marauding cavalry to enter quickly.

Later, the scripture was changed into a literal interpretation, "It is easier for a rich man to go through the Eye Of The Needle, than for him to enter the Kingdom of Heaven." If you take it literally meaning a real needle, it becomes impossible. The gate is quite possible if you get on your knees.

How many people know this? Or better yet, how many people want to know the real meaning? It's far simpler to belittle rich people and keep them out of your heaven.

I could go into the discussion about 'Spending an eternity without God is comparable to burning in the fires of Gehenna forever.' Gehenna was a Roman dump for all sorts of refuge, where fires consuming trash, bodies, and various other things, burned 24 hours seven days per week. He did not state that people would burn forever if they refused to believe in his father. He was stating that 'it would be better to burn in the dump forever than to spend an eternity without God/his Father.'

The truth is, the truth is not very popular much of anywhere, it appears. Therefore knowledge is indeed important. Christ spoke rather often in parables because the times required it, and his audience was rather simple and unlearned. The best way to get any point across is with stories or analogies.

Now pay close attention here. I am about to take flak for that which I know to be true, to be considered blasphemy because other people have been taught incorrectly and poorly for so long, even the ridiculous has become factual.

Hell as a place does not exist. Heaven exists with the Father. To be without the father for eternity is comparable to burning forever in a fire. It's not the punishment, it's a comparison. Yet what could be worse than an eternity without God? Not fire and brimstone.

That's the difference between learning the facts and professing to have learned the facts. It's true, like it or not. I am not anti-God nor a blasphemer. I deal with facts, not suppositions such as The Rapture, or the eye of A needle as opposed to the Eye Of The Needle—a real place. <sigh>

Here it comes.

Absolutely! If God had wanted sheep, he would have made sheep. He made human beings, gave us Free Will, and then he chuckles while watching people such as Norton ruin every premise of Love, Compassion, and Faith with his antiquated version of Common Sense Does Jerusalem.

I have met many a Norton in my day, and they cannot be altered beyond the superficial. They learned everything they needed to know by the time they were 12, and will spend the remainder of their lives in turmoil and splendor—depending upon the prevailing headwinds of the time.

God made mankind in his image. He is brilliant. How many brilliant people want their children to grow up to be narrow-minded nincompoops? Yet I can live with the Nortons of the world if I keep my disatnce. Yet he and his ilk are the reason why so many youngsters no longer bother studying anything requiring faith except Bigfoot, Aliens, and Nostradamus quatrains.

Keep the faith, keep learning, and keep up the good fight. You are not far from the Kingdom of Heaven—as Christ said to Nicodemus, even when he was puzzled as to what was the meaning of the 'That which is spirit is spirit; that which is flesh is flesh' quotation.

Nicodemus, unlike his fellow Pharisees, was willing to try to understand Christ's teachings. So are you. Christ was no heathen nor a nincompoop. He was a theological scholar.
