Obama is putting the kabosh on many attempts to improve our own oil refineries.He did not contend or debate Romney when told his policies halted the the continuance of improving oil refineries.

Congress are the ones who passes the laws, NOT the president....

President cannot enact a law, only the congress....

President enforces the laws....

Only changes under the declaration of an emergency and/or marshal law.....has never existed in this nation except during times of war....specifically the Civil War...when Lincoln suspended the right of Habeas Corpus...

The Habeas Corpus Act was an English statute enacted in 1679 during the reign of King Charles II. It was subsequently amended and supple-mented by enactments of Parliament that permitted, in certain cases, a person to challenge the legality of his or her imprisonment before a court that ordered the person to appear before it at a designated time so that it could render its decision. The Habeas Corpus Act served as the precursor of Habeas Corpus provisions found in U.S. federal and state constitutions and statutes that safeguard the guarantee of personal liberty.

As a matter of fact preston,I do not remember anything about John from NJ being gay.Now if that is the John you are talking about? There was a man on this forum a long time back who claimed to be gay, and I often told him his lifestyle was basically destructive.
We are not suppose to condemn people,as Jesus came not to condemn but to save.
at no time did I suggest to you that John was a homosexual, what I said was that 4bdn made that type of remark to him. try reading what is said in the future.

and 4bdn was rebuked by others on this forum for that remark as it was very filthy, WHICH IS WHY I CALL HIM A POTTY MOUTH TYPE PERSON

before the depression of mr bushes a few years ago, cathie and I were worth thaat much with our investments in land etc. so that isnt very much today.
WASHINGTON (AP)ó Just how rich is Mitt Romney? Add up the wealth of the last eight presidents, from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama. Then double that number. Now youíre in Romney territory.
Now you dont wish to vote for Obama becaused he is rich(?)
but look at romney, he made those millions thanks to the help of his false religion and the crookedness of his daddy.
Obama didnt have that type of help, what he has, he worked for and went to school to get a great education, just like cathie and I have done.

<quoted text>To the Jews Chrsitianity is a cult.And their opinion is quite respected,as Christianity came out of Judaism.
Jesus was no doubt the main and most endearing figure of Christianity.BUT the truth is,Jesus not only gave His life,but He introduced to the world,and especially to the JEW first,personally,the KINGDOM of His Father.That is the key to understanding Christ. What His relationship was and IS with the Father of Lights.
The Jews and other religious bodies such as the Muslims,may feel that Christianity is idol worship and so on,but the truth is that the Followers of Christ have displayed the real essence of the Kingdom of God.Nevertheless,there is the human factor in all of this,and we may have failed miserably at times.But when comparing all facets of this Christian era,Christians have proven time and time again,that they are engaged in the ultimate movement of helping this planet to find God in all of His fulness and Mercy,most of all love.Christians of every affiliation,and groups like the Mormons,have shown to the world, that they are willing to go the extra mile to help the unfortunate,and to give to the uttermost to alleviate poverty and victims of disasters.
WHAT!?!? Did you really believe that?

First: God knows and knew everything, right?

Then he made man, right?

He knew, whether you believe that it was 6,000 to 3.75 billion, years ago, that man would fail. That means that either he knew that his plan would fail and did it anyway or he doesn't know everything.

Then he wipe out all the living creatures, except for some sea life and that which boarded the ark. He knew from the very beginning that they would fail too!!!!! And why did he kill all those animals? They didn't do anything wrong.

Then he let the failed human race populate the planet! Knowing that most of them would be damned to hell! How cruel is that?

Then he finally decided that he needed to do something. Well, he really didn't just decided, did he? No. He knew from the very beginning that he was going to do this, yet he waited until all those poor souls were damned to hell.

The final great mistake; he only showed himself to a very small portion of the Earth, thus damning the rest of the world.

Does any of this make sense to you? If it does, run to the nearest mental health hospital and check yourself in.

Hello Robert.
Robert says......Your problem about getting something written down at the time of Jesus living, is your problem. I don't share it. Miracles are counter-culture. The life, death,, and ressurection of Jesus is counter-culture. Even John the Baptist(so called the greatist prophet), little is recorded of him....So you tell me why?
Michael says........after 2,000 years why does only 1 out of 5 people in our world follow the belief, and again most are born into it and believe what they were taught.
When only one very small select group of people in our world history describe a man as a miracle worker (history says there were many that claimed the same thing long before Jesus) then maybe none of it is true the way it is written.
There are more fiction books written than non fiction.
You have a belief. I was born into that belief, and according to the bishops in america today only 1 in 4 roman catholics actually practices their faith today. Not very good considering all the coaching parents do to convince their children about this man.
If there was a smoking gun of truth, the whole world would believe. 2,000 years and we are not even close for a man that christians ONLY claim was the greatest man that ever lived, and only one small select group of people believe it.
If God really wanted our world to progress to christianity, appearing to us as he supposedly did in the past, would certainly help the credability along. Why wouldn't God want everyone in our world on the same page and show himself to create a world that would completely do away with hatred of others.
A world we would ALL EMBRACE.........I ain't seeing it.

You're putting to much into your response, for me to reply in any meaningful way....

Although I understand your resolve in trying to make your point clear, I am left with picking and choosing only a point or two, and that gets nowhere fast....

Here is what happens when I see your writings....

You make a third and fourth statement and again ask why?

So lets go back to dialoguing, and you answer my original question. If you can't then we can be aware, that we can probe together, and there is something in common we share, and move toward understanding....

Here is the question:

"Can you tell me some of the names, or even approximately the number of Christians crucified in the Roman Empire starting at about 30 AD onward? If not, then why can't you explain....This is always your position on why you don't believe in Jesus.(It just doesn't make sense.)

AND THAT IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE WORDS OF PAUL WHO SPOKE OF THE SILVERSMITH WHO MADE MONEY OFF OF GULLIBLE PEOPLE.

when are you going to learn that you cant prove me wrong on my statements because I can show cause from the Bible.

graham has brought many up on his platform who have nothing in common with Pauls type of Christianity.

and he has done that for the love of money, and surely not for the Cause of Christ..

So I will say it again, May God reward him for his disrespect that he has shown the Sacrifice of Jesus.

some of these people who claim to have attended college, must not have taken a class in government, because they dont know what the three branches of the Govenment are.

PAD wanted to blame obama ove the incompletion of the Canadian Pipeline, when the EPA put a temporary hold on it because of the Aquifier(I dount if very many people even know what that is), yet romney said he would order it completed a soon as he becomes President.

that is a lie and so foolish that even people like PAD would believe him.

the Preident does not have the POWER to overrule a quasi goverment order, he can suggest, but he cant force them into braking their Laws as written by Congress.

Robert.

I don't know their names, because I guess they weren't important enough to record back then.

Jesus is claimed to be the greatest man that ever lived according to christians TODAY!, in CHRISTIAN ONLY HISTORY, yet no christians know his birthdate, don't know what he did for a living, don't know what he looked like, and the most important dates of all, the death and resurrection and no one thought he was important enough to record that. Christians today argue over two different burial sites..........thats not good!

The gospels are suppose to be the cornerstone to christian writings yet no one knows any of the dates they were written, where they were written, and no one can verify with any certainty that the names associated with the gospel writers are the actual people who wrote them. Outside of christian only writings there is nothing mentioned in our world history of miraculous birth, 12 apostles, or crucifixion. Remember there were suppose to have been many thousands of jewish witnesses to this mans good deeds, and the only few who recorded anything became christians. AGENDA???

Julius Caesar an important man in WORLD HISTORY, about 100 years before the Jesus story was born JULY 13, 100 BCE. Died March 15, 44 BCE. Occupations: Was a roman statesman, general, author. There are actual statues still around depicting the likeness appearance of Julius Caesar. You can buy coins today from that era with the stamping of Julius Caesar himself on these coins from 2100 years ago.

There is no evidence left behind to indicate that a Jesus actually lived and died. The shroud of Turin is claimed to be a fake by many experts, yet the catholic church keeps it as a holy relic but DOES NOT indicate, or know, with any certainty that they believe its the burial cloth.

If someone was important to others in history, they are usually recorded in our world history. The only history recorded about a Jesus is christian ONLY history.

Thousands of jews were suppose to have been miraclized, but jews at that time and today don't believe such things happened.

Did Jesus just become popular as time went on? Seems so, because no christians know anything about him personally.

I once heard from a Secratary to a very famous Preacher state," Oh, it's OK to get the MARK. Because Jesus knows your heart."
Indeed HE does....
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Hello Robert.

You said to BlackSheep.....I am saying that belief is based on experience and knowledge....

I say belief is MOSTLY based on family/culture, hand-me-down tradition, indoctrination, and the part of the world you reside.

Born to an Italian family, very good chance you will be raised and learn the belief of catholicism ONLY.(nothing to do with experience knowledge)

Born to a middle eastern family, very good chance you will be raised to learn the belief and worship Allah and Islam ONLY!(nothing to do with experience knowledge)

Born at 67 main street in america raised a roman catholic. Born across the street at 68 main street in america raised a protestant.

location, location, location! more often than NOT determines how and who people worship..........or no worship at all.

A very small percentage of people in our world actually have a belief based on experience or seeking out knowledge.
