  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Wow is this the best debate anyone can come up with? Just one sentence against all the scriptural evidence I gave? What most Republicans don't think about is that the wealthy transfer wealth from the people FIRST. The things they do to manipulate the economy and corporate welfare makes more people NEED governemtn assistance. Then they make the middle class pay for it when the poor and vulnerable need help. How you ask. By Wall Street gambling that robs pensions, businesses, and jobs, and that make the prices rise for everyone. Also by billions in corporate welfare handouts every year, and by paying their CEOs exorbitant salaries and bonuses that they don't deserve that should be paid out in a living wage to workers, so they don't need govt. assistance in the future. If Occupy Wallstreet is not a hope for fighting Wall Street and corporate greed, just what would you propose? Just letting them continue with legalized crime?

    If someone hasn't got a decent clue of how to debate me with reason and by using scripture, they can always hurl and insult and prove they are neither intelligent nor a true Christian. "You will know them by their fruit."

    Why do you not see the connection between the rich who have bribed politicians on both sides to OWN the government, and government? They have sabatoged social programs for profit. They wound the economy with Wall Street gambling and other financial abuses which causes more people to suffer, only then do they print money to make up for some of it, which creates inflation, and then they make the middle class pay for it in taxes. Stop the first cause and the rest won't have to happen. Get the bad root out and look at causes not symptoms. If you attack the symptoms you will destroy the middle class, poor, and democracy. Attack the root cause you will solve everything. Blame the ones who wound, not the ones who bandage the wounds.

    If they're like me, they aren't debating you because they've gone blind trying to read your blocks of text. Please learn what paragraphs are and use them.

    Also, governments don't cause inflation...the Fed does. The Fed is not government as much as many people think they are.

    Then follow Kennedy's advice, "Ask not what your country can go for you..."

    It was more of a flesh wound.

    Taxing the rich isn't the solution. If we taxed the rich more, it would help a bit like a band aid. The solution, at least in part, is to release the stranglehold the Fed has (and has had since its inception) on our economic system.

    To underscore my point (even if it isn't exactly replying to what conamer was getting at):

    That seems contrary to the fact that our liberal friends are supporting this food stamp president

    Feeling so blessed here that our President cares for those in need during these economic hard times. I'm wondering why others who criticize his caring are so heartless and themselves don't care for those thrown into unemployment thru no fault of their own.

    No, no. If you repeat something enough times it becomes true. Right?
    /sarcasm

    Keep saying over and over "OWS is greedy" in the media and magically it becomes true.

    Not in my universe.

    It reminds me of something Reagan said responding to Carter's claim to feel our pain. He said he wouldn't feel our pain because he wasn't going to cause our pain, just like it would be nice if Obama didnt cause so many to be on food stamps
