Why Do Leftist Liberals Love to Mislead

Never heard of it, unless you meant to say Scofield Reference Bible. If so, I fail to see what relevance that has. Dispensationalism may be a failed hermeneutic, but it is not a liberal one.

The most surprising thing in this article is Dr. Youssef's assertion that "well-organized forces opposed to biblical teaching began to invade the mainline denominations" thirty years ago. In truth, it's been over a hundred and thirty years. C. S. Lewis wrote about it in the 1940s. J. Gresham Machen wrote about it in the 1920s. The growing iberal heresies were the reason the essays of "The Fundamentals" were written in the 1910s. The liberal heresies have been around a lot longer than thirty years.

Nazism was not a dictatorship on the Right, it was on the Left. One of the lies the Left has repeated ad nauseum, and you have apparently absorbed, is that dactatorships on the Left are not so very different from dictatorships on the Right. One might reasonably accept such an idea if there was one example in all of human history of a dictatorship on the Right; but there isn't. Certainly not what we in this country consider to be the Right. Never in all of human history has there been a dictatorship established upon the principle of leaving people alone to live their own lives and make their own decisions. Every dictatorship in all of human history has embraced, to one degree or another, the paternalism of the Left. Hitler's fascism differed from traditional socialism only in that the Nazis recognized that it was not necessary for government to own the means of production, only to control the owners of the means of production.

GOP Cowards

It is because you keep voting for Republicans merely because they are better than Democrats that Boehner and McConnell feel no need to listen to you.
The new Republican Congress must stand up to the President...but they won't. That would require courage. Can anybody point to a single thing in the character of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell that would lead any of us to believe they have the foggiest notion what courage is? The fact that they will retain their post in the new Congress is clear evidence that the Republican majorities are preparing to roll over and play dead. Even if they're wrong, at least the Democrats stand for something and they stick together. The Republican Leadership does everything it can to emasculate the part of their base that actually believes something. Boehner and McConnell have misread the results of the last election worse than Obama has. The Democrats are willing to sacrifice principle for political calculation. The Republicans are willing to sacrifice principle for political miscalculation.

Scholar-Athlete Charade

It is not often that I disagree with Dr. Williams, but this is one of those times. He suggests that it's time to end the "scholar/athlete charade" by paying the athletes. Exactly how will that end the charade? By abandoning the fiction that they are students? Dr. Williams' proposed solution doesn't actually solve anything. The way to solve the problem is truly to end the charade. Intercollegiate athletics, especially the big money sports of football and basketball are hopelessly and irredeemably corrupt. They should be abolished. A moment’s sober reflection (which almost never happens when your school’s team is the subject of the conversation) will reveal that intercollegiate athletics adds nothing of any true value to a college education. Spare me your stories about how athletics builds character, teamwork, blah, blah, blah. Do you really think athletics is the only way such things can be learned? Or even the best way? Is it really only your school’s athletes that have any character? Does the rest of the student body not know how to play nicely with other children? Where is it written that America's colleges and universities should be farm teams for the NFL and NBA? That is not, repeat NOT, the purpose of college. Ah, but what would happen to the reputation of your dear old alma mater if it can’t go out there every Saturday afternoon and lose one for the Gipper? Maybe people will start judging colleges on the basis of their graduation and career placement rates instead of their won-lost records. What would be so bad about that?

It was not, in fact, the defection of Arlen Spector on April 29, 2009, that gave the Democrats a 60 vote, fillibuster proof majority in the Senate. It was the July 7, 2009, installation of Al Franken after the Minnesota Supreme Court declared him the winner of the previous November's election.
The world is full of people who read the Bible without understanding it. If you think Jesus opposes all warfare short of the Kingdom consummated, you're one of them. Or don't you know that Jesus is the God of the Old Testament too?
Jeff, are well enough acquainted with Jesus to know what He thinks?
