Nancy Pelosi says impeachment of Trump 'just not worth it'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she doesn’t support impeaching President Trump, dealing a major setback to the anti-Trump resistance that has clamored for House Democrats to take the politically charged step.
Mrs. Pelosi, in an interview with The Washington Post Magazine released Monday, said that while she doubts Mr. Trump’s fitness for office, impeaching him would be too divisive.
“I’m not for impeachment,” she told the magazine, adding she was aware she was breaking news with the announcement. “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides...
Will you be able to finish your salvation tower?
“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough
to finish it — lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?” (Luke 14:26-30)
We cannot be a disciple of Jesus
● IF we love ourselves (or a relative) more than Jesus
● IF we do not bear our crosses and come after Jesus
Morphing and disturbing
Ok my OCD latches on a fear that I’ve died and I’m at Gods Judgment.
My OCD latched onto this fear that God is purging all my sin because He wants to see me and then judge me.
Since God is Holy, He can’t have sin in front of Him.
Now this is a problem for a Christian because I feel either way condemned.
If I allow the Holy Ghost to get rid of my sins I’ll have to stand before Him, if I give into my sins I’ll be judged also.
This is very hard for a Christian that feels like I should be growing in Christ.
I don’t know what to do folks.
I"m 51 and I'd say that I've had two different moments in my life when I was approached about Christ. Once was by a couple that knocked on my door from an actual Christian Church.
1. How is this even possible?
2. If this Church (the body of Christ) has abandoned "obedience" to such lengths, is there any reason to think that Jesus won't be returning soon?
[Rom 3:12 NLT] "All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one."
Two different occasions in 51.5 years? "Confidence Is From The Lord" is a false teaching folks. This evil statement along with, "Just Pray About It" are two of the most destructive false teachings rampant in the "Church" today.
God, forgive them all, for they know not what they do....
The term "replacement theology" is not helpful because:
It is uncharitable. It does not seek to listen to or understand covenant theology, but rather to dismiss it without giving it a proper hearing.
It is pejorative. It's meant to cause harm by making our views seem ridiculous and not worthy of consideration.
It is not accurate. No one would assume this label for themselves because no one believes that the church has "replaced" Israel. When this label is used, what comes across is that our views have not really been understood and the person that we're communicating with does not care to take the time to understand our views.
So please stop using the term "replacement theology". Thanks!
The following questions are for those who subscribe to unconditional election:
1. Do you think you are *not* one of the elect or have you ever met someone who subscribes to unconditional election but thinks they are *not* one of the elect?
2. If you think you are one of the elect, how do you know that God hasn't planned for you to be one of the unelect (for example by making you think you believe when you don't truly believe like those who seemed to be solid Calvinists but suddenly became atheists or agnostics)?
Hello, I’m new here so hopefully I’m doing this right? My boyfriend and I have been in a serious relationship for over 3years. A couple months ago he brought up possibly wanting a prenup. I couldn’t help but feel betrayed & taken a back. We’ve always had strong,loving, trusting relationship with no issues & centered by God. His reasoning is because if there was a possibility we “didn’t work out” he had “a lot to loose” I told him what do you think God would think of this and he said: “well he would want me to have faith in him” I also feel like I’ve done something wrong, or I didn’t do enough for him to feel like he needed this? I don’t have a lot of money saved but I do have a lot of love to give. We haven’t talked much about it lately...
