Press conference in over 7 months.
What is up with that? How is she able to get her message out? And why is the mainstream media not up in arms over it?
This is not a Trump thread; if you want to talk about Trump start a separate thread.
I understand that in God's agape love we do have family caring and sharing and therefore phileo brotherly love.
And there is pleasure of intimacy . . . spiritual . . . "one spirit with Him" (1 Corinthians 6:17). But this is not the same as marital physical eros, but better and nicer. As we grow in God's agape love, then, we do experience special oneness and spiritual pleasure by being "one spirit with" our Groom Jesus, and with one another.

My stand is...
It seems miraculous that people in India, Egypt, Russia, Romania, Italy, etc., would all accept a religion rooted in Judaism, especially when they had their own preferred culture that normally would have taken precedence over foreign influences.
...It seems impossible! What happened?
In another thread a position was made that the Roman Catholic Church is the one Church of Jesus. I was thrown off with the nomenclature, so that is my first question.
What is the established meaning of the Church verses the/a church?
I think the Church represents the body of all believers. I think the/a church represents any religious denomination. I think this because our greatest affiliation is to be called Christian and so I capitalize Church when talking about the body of...
