Donald Trump Admits He Didn't Tape Conversations With James Comey
Trump first suggested he had secret recordings in a tweet in May, days after he fired Comey. The FBI director had been leading the bureau’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.
tulc(is shocked to find out President Trump lied shocked!)
No, but, now that you mention that very tame piece of work, it has more detail than what you are teaching here.
Pretribbers, which pretrib "details" have proven true?
Could you please post some examples.
During the many years that I have been studying this, here are a couple pretribber "details" that were proven FALSE...
Between 1981 and 1986, when the European Union (EU) had exactly 10 member states, the pretribbers were saying... The EU has 10 member states ("ten horns"), the president/king of the next country to join will be the "little horn". He will take over 3 of the other member states leaving 8 member states. Etc etc.
But what actually happened was... 2 nations joined at the same time, so the EU went from having 10...
I'm sitting here on the net, playing games and trying to figure out what to do. It feels like there's a lot of stuff I "probably should be doing" I'm just not sure what it is. I kinda feel like I'm not being productive for the Spirit. I want to do more but how?????
Does anyone feel guilty sometimes about having down time or being unproductive? I didn't used to but now after becoming Christian I think about it more.
There are some of you that have been married a very long time, then there's some that have not, whether you are married or single I am asking both sexes this question. I mainly want to know from the men but I am welcome to all advice and/or knowledge. We all find different things about the other gender very attractive and for me personally, I find confidence attractive. I believe as Christians we are all seeking to have a Godly home and relationship with our partners or at least that is my goal in my marriage.
What do you find most attractive and/or appealing about your mate? What has kept you faithful to them only? What are the things they do or say that lift you up and cause you to want to always be with them? Maybe it's an emotional...
I've been having sleep paralysis for the past couple nights. I'm exhausted, and no matter what I do, it keeps happening
It's terrifying and I'm afraid to go to sleep because it happens every time. I fall asleep, and then I "wake up" in a paralyzed state. I can't move my arms or legs, and I'm trying to scream, but nothing's coming out. After what feels like 10 minutes of desperately trying to move, I eventually wake up. I haven't slept one second in 2 nights. Every time I feel myself drifting off to sleep, I enter sleep paralysis again. I can feel myself "falling" into sleep, and then I can feel my body shutting down, but not my mind. And then suddenly, I can't move.
I've tried praying and calling out Jesus' name but nothing really...
"I wish I was in a suitable place to tell it, and that I had the trump of an archangel, so that I could tell the story in such a manner that persecution would cease forever. What did Jesus say? (Mark it, Elder Rigdon!) The scriptures inform us that Jesus said, as the Father hath power in himself, even so hath the Son power—to do what? Why, what the Father did. The answer is obvious—in a manner to lay down his body and take it up again. Jesus, what are you going to do? To lay down my life as my Father did, and take it up again. Do you believe it? If you do not believe it you do not believe the Bible. The scriptures say it, and I defy all the learning and wisdom and all the combined powers of earth and hell together to refute it."...
I happened to read up online that Christmas is a pagan holiday that the Catholic church adopted to convince pagans to join their church. That it actually originally worshiped the Sun God or something like that.
Is it true? And if so, are we not to celebrate Christmas?
This troubles me because I have always looked at Christmas a time of joy, of goodwill, of spending time with family. And even though I didn't grow up that religious, I do recall praying in front of the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve one year to God. And I felt really good doing so, I thought He was listening.
Plus...my family celebrates and meets on Christmas and I don't really get to see the one side of my family until Christmas.
So yeah, what do you think? What...
This is primarily a question about mastering the ability to forgive others whom you have online interactions with, although it could naturally also apply to personal relationships as well if that's something anyone would also like to discuss.
But where are you in your ability to forgive those who offend you online, especially other brothers and sisters in Christ who instead of acting brotherly are openly rude and insulting to you? But please note, I am NOT asking have you mastered the ability to not become angry with those who offend you. Quite the opposite. I am asking have you mastered the ability to forgive others when they did offend or anger you.
If you have developed ways and systems of mastering this, please describe the...
In my last thread, because of comments by some others, I was accused of believing in Universal Salvation. As I understand the term, I categorically do not believe that everyone will be saved regardless of their response to Christ. I believe that Christ died for all mankind, taking the sins of all the world upon himself, but we still have to accept or reject that gift by believing the Gospel.
However, to be honest, I have never really researched what people believe who declare Universal Salvation. So I am inviting all those who believe it to show me why you believe it.
I am not setting this up as a bait to convince you otherwise. But I will honestly disagree or agree depending on what is said. Please let me know why you believe in...
Which is more important to you, your religion or your personal relationship with Jesus? Is it more important to go to church every service, or is it more useful to read your Bible, to know and obey what it says? (I am not talking about never going to church.)
