Trump doubles down on threat to take oil from Syria
Donald Trump has renewed his threats to forcibly steal oil from Syria, a move which experts say would amount to a war crime.

Continuing repentance is necessary for having an acceptable heart attitude before the Lord.
At the moment you were born-again …
you were only forgiven of the sins you had committed up to that point in time!
“For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness,
and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his OLD sins.
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call
and election sure, for IF you do these things you will never stumble;
for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting
kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:9-11, NKJV)
“OLD sins” is also in the KJV, RSV, NLT, AMP
“having forgotten his purification from his FORMER sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NASB)
One reason I believe but have some doubt about the bible is because man found dinosaur fossils and other things that confirm the Earth is older than the bible says. So if the bible is true, why doesn't it mention Dinosaurs? If it's true, then why does it say the earth is only thousands of years old?
I never really liked myself as an individual. I have always been really shy and never had much of a personality or opinions on any matter. I realized that I don't know a lot about anything or have any passions. I never feel like I have a presence anywhere, I just merely exist. There isn't anything I am really known for, I am not charismatic, talented, smart etc. This also hasn't helped me make friends so I have always been a loner. I also don't think I can make a change as a Christian because I don't have anything to offer. I know that God made me who I am for a reason, however, it hurts being so unremarkable. My question is can God change me or do I just have to accept myself?
So of course the natural reaction is "you have faith: good for you". But I think it goes more deeply than that. I think having a God, at the very least, means that I have something for Evolutionists could believe, if only I knew what. I know the theory: call that which was not, as if it were - but does this mean call the Evolution of God (which was not), as though it - the Evolution of God - were? It seems that they are juxtaposed against each other: God does not send an updated Jesus, every time Evolution reboots with a different species! The one sacrifice was needed, that was all.
I mean if you really tried to be different, if you really looked up to Evolutionists, you still could never do it. You would always have the one...
Long story short, I've been stalked for months and this girl threatened to bring a gun to shoot up the church. She ended up coming back to church 3 more times and I think she's back for good now. Problem is, I'm terrified of going back now. I'm very upset with my family because they criticized me for feeling like she shouldn't be allowed back in the building, and also because I say she's not a true Christian. They even encouraged me not to get a restraining order. Because if I do, that means either me or my stalker has to leave the church, which they already said would be me, and they think that's causing conflict within the church. Why should I have to leave the church I was born and raised in all because some psychopath decides he/she...
Trump says someone else got his Nobel peace prize
US President Donald Trump seems to think that he was overlooked for last year's Nobel Peace Prize.

With 100 billion souls at stake, God isn’t so stupid as to rely on fallible exegesis. His plan for both OT and NT saints has always been the absolute primacy of direct revelation (1Cor 14:1). Let’s see how it trumps exegesis. Prior to conversion, exegesis convinced Paul that the Messiah would liberate captive Israel . Hence he regarded Jesus neither as Messiah nor as God incarnate. Then he saw a vision and heard a voice on the road to Damascus. This direct revelation caused him to feel certain that Jesus is Lord and God, thereby trumping 20 years of exegesis – he threw it all out the window literally in a single flash of Light.
How and when does a direct revelation trump exegesis? Feelings of certainty. There are no possible...
DOJ inquiry tied to Clinton, touted by Trump winds down with no tangible results: report
On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that the Department of Justice is quietly winding down a two-year probe into the Clintons, and admitting that “nothing of consequence” was found to suggest they had committed any sort of criminal offense.
