Now thats a little bossy isnt it?---Liberals dont seem to understand IRONY.
..should have said the option to not revolt IS NOT IN THIS VERSE
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are NOT A TERROR TO GOOD WORKS, but to EVIL.---I would suggest actually reading the words of the verses. In the case of Paul he wasn't representing a political cause- but a spiritual one. In the American Revolution or the Roundheads under Cromwell etc. the idea that that verse would be interpreted in the way you do would have meant that those and other revolts against tyranny never occur. God in His providence has obviously allowed for uprisings which have resulted in the opportunity for his creation to prosper. Using these verses to usurp any change in government is a misuse of the verses.---So IF YOUR GOVERNMENT IS A TERROR TO GOOD WORKS and IS NOT AGAINST EVIL but promotes it then the option to revolt is NOT in this verse. This verse applies to governments who oppose terror and evil and promote good works. Reading it any other way is disingenuous and is reading into the text. Paul was spreading the word and had no political goal.

Top Scientists Confirm: Humans Suck

Syllogism: Major premise: Humans Suck Minor Premise: Scientists are human Conclusion: Scientists suck Logic 101: A tautology is a logical statement in which the conclusion is equivalent to the premise. So by definition scientists just accused themselves of being irrelevant and useless and evil. So if they called themselves all of this their conclusions are irrelevant and absurd.---Welcome to the world of the left.
I know your pain Sheila! In 1995 our friend Timothy McVeigh wouldn't have done what he did were it not for that dam- Gingrich and the Government shutdown!....These shutdowns have to stop...Hey was there one in Germany circa 39-45??

'Breaking Bad': A Christian Parable

Morality is contained in every waking moment- but that isn't Ann's point. The Prodigal may not mention God specifically- but the Prodigal returns to his Father so God is mentioned . God is central to that story. God is no where mentioned in Breaking Bad. Actually Walt never realizes he's a horrible person- even to the end he realizes though he has done horrible things he still ultimately believes he has redeemed Jessie and his daughter. He is pragmatic and still hasn't confessed or acknowledged that HE killed Hank or that his actions destroyed his own family- sure there is a grudging acceptance of those facts but no real repentance.

Auspex- I think you missed my point. Of course there is God in every story- but every story isn't about God. I would never subscribe to pantheism. So yes of course God is there, but the story has nothing specific to do with God.

Interesting take, but weak in points. Walter is actually beneficent to his daughter in the long run and to Jessie- so Ann's critiques falls extremely flat on that count. Others in the show show varying degrees of both good and bad traits. The show overall is a well written account of a fantasy world where actions occur which in real life would be cut short at many different points. The show is not a Christian parable- the characters have no real unique message of God's redemptive power. Its an entertaining fantasy that is well written and acted. Forcing God into human acting portrayals is very difficult. There is no redemption here. -Could there be? Sure. But it isn't there. So its a human drama minus God.
Those belligerent Republicans.... I tell ya. All Obama wants is compromise and those evil conservatives wont do it....But not to fear McLame and Grahamnasty are always there to sniff the butt of Obama and wag their tails at being such good little statesman. So supertroll you have nothing to fear (well your healthcare and wallet yes) as far as all this goes- the faux right is firmly in your corner. Enjoy your little insurance card and good luck on any future health needs.
That's okay. I compare Obama to his master Satan- and you know Satan was the person Saul Alinsky dedicated his book Rules for Radicals to. Like Satan Obama and liberals are angels of light masquerading as avengers for the little guy as they throw the little guys out of work, onto the dole and into rationed, crappy health care. So Mr. President you master down under is very pleased with your work.
Obama is a creep. I have no doubt this is the most evil man to be in the WH. Yet because of Alinsky tactics and a public which is growing dumber by the year he is the perfect man for this time. In 2010 the American public watched the ACA being shoved down the throats of the American people. They heard they would have 72 hours to read it online - all 2000+ pages- and weren't given a second. Then Pelosi said you would have to find out what was in it after it was passed- and still the idiots in this country voted the fraud back in. I personally have had it as far as being PC about this man. This man is evil.
