If you don’t like their version of Christianity, you can start your own.
    That’s why I’m so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,” Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    How much more grateful then would I be to One who saved my life for eternity? I'd accept the offer and be eternally grateful.

    Is that person really a mod? One who should move this thread instead of participating in it?

    Has Trump repented his sins? That's his business, of course, but it would require acknowledging that he's done something wrong. TRUMP? Can you imagine that?

    And this is a person you greatly admire - so I understand.

    By their actions they have judged themselves.
    I will make no comment.

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    Untrue; because he had several "liaisons" with different women.

    One would think a supposed lawyer would know this.

    Would that be like Owl lying about me chaining up a dog??

    The only consolation is that when they pass on, there will be an accounting of their own comments.

    You had my finger hovering over the thank button lol.

    Couldn’t agree more that Christians are bad about dividing themselves according to peripheral doctrines. Not sure what this has to do with Trump. Like many ‘fundies’ I didn’t vote for a preacher in Trump; rather, I saw someone who would get the economy back on track. A weak economy has lots of negative downstream effects [joblessness is associated with drug use and alcoholism etc].

    Also, I saw Trump as a fighter who would stand up to the left and the media. I saw ‘America first’ as a breath of fresh air. Frankly, I don’t care how many marriages he’s had or whatever. My vote for Trump was purely transactional in that sense.

    And so far at least, I’ve gotten pretty much what I bargained for.
    I’m a straight white cisgender Easter worshipper~how else may I offend you?
