Before we get into the main topic, how many of you voted for Obama? I personally did not, although I could not stomach the thought of inferior-gender Sarah Palin becoming a Heartbeat Away From The Presidency. So I voted for Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party. And I would do it again - under the same conditions and circumstances.
I never have trusted SilverTongue Obama - wherever he was actually born. His pro-abortion pro-feminist-sexist cabinet appointments were bad enough, but the straw that broke the camel's back was him and his demoncrat ilk getting chauvenistically and racially-biased Sotomayor to become a lifelong member of the U.S. Supreme Court.
And now (as of this writing) a vast host of the American people are rising up in vocal revolt against Barack and his crew, which administration is and will continue to try to overtly and subtly replace correctable Medicare with Obamacare, which Obamacare would operate as inefficiently as the now-discontinued Cash for Clunkers fiasco.
By forcing Obamacare (if necessary by implementing that sneaky congressional manipulation tactic of the "Reconciliation" manuever prohibiting GOP filibuster) and deleting Medicare and Medicaid, Obama and his cohorts are obviously attacking their political foes: older people receiving Social Security checks, aged veterans, and the SSI-funded disabled who did not, do not, and will not support nor vote for him and his financially-disasterous shenanigans.
The pro-Obama pro-demoncrat network media (not simply Larry King's CNN but especially Rachel Maddow [the Sassy-But-Modestly-Shorthaired Twit], along with the ridiculing Hardball gang on MSNBC) attempting to slander and smear those who forcefully voice honest and enlightened objections in townhall meetings nationwide, is now trying to sidetrack and divert attention to everything else they can, including a rehash of the now-deceased-by-drug-overdose, ridiculous-looking, effeminate clown Michael Jackson (in no way a contemporary replacement to the honored swinger Elvis Presley).
More to come.
Now, have you been "sanctified?" And are you "perfect" now?
Hebrews 10:5 Consequently, when Christ came into the world, He said, "Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but a body have You prepared for Me;
Hebrews 10:6 in burnt offerings and sin offerings You have taken no pleasure.
Hebrews 10:7 Then I said, 'Wow, I have come to do Your will, O God,' as it is written of Me in the roll of the Book."
Hebrews 10:10 And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 10:14 For by a single offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
You're in. You've got it made.
Php 3:12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
'Once saved, always saved.' Right?
Joh 10:28 and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.
Eph 2:5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by Grace you have been saved),
Eph 2:8 For by Grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God
[Not really. Choose a different Person instead of Grace to credit salvation to].
1Pe 2:9 But you are a chosen seed, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
We get the point. We all are not going to "burn in hell forever." Sorry about that, you accursed jerks and dipshits who disbelieve and hate The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
But CAN what is done be undone?
Heb 10:26 For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
Heb 10:27 but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries.
Joh 8:31 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciples,
Ro 11:22 Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off.
2Ti 4:10 For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
2Pe 1:9 For whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
Mt 12:43 "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest, but he finds none.
Mt 12:44 Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
Mt 12:45 Then he goes and brings with him seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. So shall it be also with this evil generation."
Lu 11:24 "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest; and finding none he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.'
Lu 11:25 And when he comes he finds it swept and put in order.
Lu 11:26 Then he goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first."
2Pe 2:22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, The dog turns back to his own vomit, and the sow is washed only to wallow in the mire.
Jude 1:4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Jude 1:5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
Jude 1:6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day;
Jude 1:7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
Jude 1:8 Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones.
Recently in Minneapolis the ELCA had a nationwide church convention to decide on the homoclergy issue. On a crucial voting day during that convention week, some 21 ELCA voting members - ignoring prayer and fasting - departed for Twin Cities restaurants without voting on the main homosexual issue at hand, and a quick Call-the-Question vote by homopervert hierarchy promptly slanted the final tally on the side of the homoqueers. So now half the ELCA voting members are pro-homofaggots, and the other half are anti-homosexuals. May God eternally damn the former (along with those homo-impenitent of the group who blasphemously miscall themselves "Goodsoil" (actually worse than roadway, rocky, and thorny soil) plus "Soul Force" and "Lutherans Concerned" (a.k.a. Lewdthrines Concerned to Protect and Promote Homosexuals and Homosexuality)....but bless the latter to the ages of the ages.
Forever? Forever is a LONG time....in fact, it is beyond time.
So what about the verses:
1Co 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [Gr. malakoi], nor sodomites [Gr. arsenokoitai],
1Co 6:10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
1Co 6:11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
WHO were those people in terms of their name-and-home-church identity, who were "washed and sanctified and justified" by the designated means stated...and [hopefully] still remain washed and sanctified and justified? Who are the authentic saints within and outside the ELCA destined for Paradise and not Hades...who have genuinely given themselves completely over to the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ and The Word of God declared in the Sacred-66 canonical books of The Holy Bible? Those who say that:
(1) Everyone who ridicules and reviles "gay" people is mean, cruel, hateful, spiteful, judgmental, intolerant, legalistic, nitpicky, hung up, bigoted, prejudiced, biased, unloving, and guilty of "hate crimes?"
(2) No one is perfect; We all are in bondage and sin and cannot free ourselves?
(3) Jesus is Lord and Darwin was right (cause even the demons believe, and shudder); God is love and has unconditional forgiveness for everyone we should welcome and accept in cultural diversity and civil-rights and human-rights and equal-rights and equal-opportunity inclusion without illegal discrimination?
Of course NOT!
Contrast that with those who instead publicly proclaim:
Lord Jesus, I fully admit that homosexuality is a vile and wicked sin. I who have totally surrendered to You as Lord and Master, and have (according to Your explicit and obviously Bible verses concerning homogay and homosodomite deviancy) completely rejected homosexual inclinations, ideology, and behavior as depraved wickedness - and as such am one of the truly-righteous elect of Your kingdom. No homosexual would be happy in Your perfect never-any-sinning-whatsoever Heaven, but would rather curse You as they revile and ridicule and defame and misrepresent and curse Your saints who now abhor and disdain homosexuals and their homosexuality. Such defiantly-arrogant pro-homosexuals would rather burn in the Outer-Darkness Lake of Fire than give up their allegiance to and craving for the asinine, despicable, and irrational so-called and alleged "right" and "liberty" and "freedom" and "free choice" of homosexuality.
Ex 20:6 .....but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
De 5:10 .....but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Ne 1:9 .....but if you return to me and keep my commandments and do them, though your dispersed be under the farthest skies, I will gather them thence and bring them to the place which I have chosen, to make my name dwell there.'
Pr 3:1 My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments;
Lu 6:46 "Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?
Joh 14:15 "If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Joh 15:10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.
To now insert both a social-issues note and a political note, I have heard rumors that Nebraska law disallows allocation of alimony to divorced women married less than 10 years. It should go even further. Economic survival of divorced women should be on the same basis as credit-card and Social-Security-number identity: it's every person for himself and herself financially. Any women who initiates a divorce......particularly for feminist-sexist insubordinate causes, or monetary greed, or non-reasonable self-righteous intolerance against her imperfect mate.....needs to get a job and support herself, rather than sponge off her alienated and deprived ex-husband. Where non-adult children are involved, the children should be provided for by both the divorced husband and the divorced wife. If prospective alimony to the divorce-minded wife was not allowed, many women would certainly think twice about biting the hand that feeds them.
Report is in of the demise of TFK, lauded by Satan's worldly news media trying to make a saint out of a sinner. Every dog has his day, and the stately senator was no exception. Amidst the Obama-and-Clinton-related praise and adulation, the sensible and sane remember the notorious pro-abortion-choice and pro-feminist-sexist voting record of anti-Bush/anti-Iraqi-War Chappaquiddick Kennedy, who clearly sought to please humans for political advantage rather than pleasing God with reference to the Lord's Word (the entirety of The HOLY BIBLE). His goat-and-not-sheep pseudo-Catholicism and related eternal destiny can be ascertained in accord with:
Mt 7:16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Mt 7:20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.
Finally, to the now "Ellingaylickall Lewdthrine Church in America" (a.k.a. the ELCA, perverted by such pseudo-"Pastor" ELCA hierarcy as Rebecca Larson), a two-thirds majority of whom are aptly described with the Bible verse:
1Ti 4:2 .....through the pretensions of liars whose consciences are seared,
with their pro-homogay heresy of [depraved, deviant, and despicable] "bound conscience" of everyone bound by self-imposed frequently-wicked unspiritual conscience to do anything they want and no one to condemn anyone else for that and theirs - with the presumption that that overrides God's Biblically-stated universal laws of morality for all humans of all time under every circumstance, the LORD says:
Job 34:33 Will He then make requital to suit you, because you reject it? For you must choose, and not I; therefore declare what you know.
Deuteronomy 28:16 Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field.
17 Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading-trough.
18 Cursed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, the increase of your cattle, and the young of your flock.
19 Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.
20 "The LORD will send upon you curses, confusion, and frustration, in all that you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and perish quickly, on account of the evil of your doings, because you have forsaken me.
21 The LORD will make the pestilence cleave to you until he has consumed you off the land which you are entering to take possession of it.
22 The LORD will smite you with consumption, and with fever, inflammation, and fiery heat, and with drought, and with blasting, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish.
23 And the heavens over your head shall be brass, and the earth under you shall be iron.
24 The LORD will make the rain of your land powder and dust; from heaven it shall come down upon you until you are destroyed.
25 "The LORD will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them; and you shall be a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.
26 And your dead body shall be food for all birds of the air, and for the beasts of the earth; and there shall be no one to frighten them away.
27 The LORD will smite you with the boils of Egypt, and with the ulcers and the scurvy and the itch, of which you cannot be healed.
28 The LORD will smite you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind;
29 and you shall grope at noonday, as the blind grope in darkness, and you shall not prosper in your ways; and you shall be only oppressed and robbed continually, and there shall be no one to help you.
30 You shall betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her; you shall build a house, and you shall not dwell in it; you shall plant a vineyard, and you shall not use the fruit of it.
31 Your ox shall be slain before your eyes, and you shall not eat of it; your ass shall be violently taken away before your face, and shall not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and there shall be no one to help you.
32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, while your eyes look on and fail with longing for them all the day; and it shall not be in the power of your hand to prevent it.
33 A nation which you have not known shall eat up the fruit of your ground and of all your labors; and you shall be only oppressed and crushed continually;
34 so that you shall be driven mad by the sight which your eyes shall see.
35 The LORD will smite you on the knees and on the legs with grievous boils of which you cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the crown of your head.
36 "The LORD will bring you, and your king whom you set over you, to a nation that neither you nor your fathers have known; and there you shall serve other gods, of wood and stone.
37 And you shall become a horror, a proverb, and a byword, among all the peoples where the LORD will lead you away.
38 You shall carry much seed into the field, and shall gather little in; for the locust shall consume it.
39 You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but you shall neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes; for the worm shall eat them.
40 You shall have olive trees throughout all your territory, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil; for your olives shall drop off.
41 You shall beget sons and daughters, but they shall not be yours; for they shall go into captivity.
42 All your trees and the fruit of your ground the locust shall possess.
43 The sojourner who is among you shall mount above you higher and higher; and you shall come down lower and lower.
44 He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.
49 The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you do not understand,
50 a nation of stern countenance, who shall not regard the person of the old or show favor to the young,
51 and shall eat the offspring of your cattle and the fruit of your ground, until you are destroyed; who also shall not leave you grain, wine, or oil, the increase of your cattle or the young of your flock, until they have caused you to perish.
52 They shall besiege you in all your towns, until your high and fortified walls, in which you trusted, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you in all your towns throughout all your land, which the LORD your God has given you.
53 And you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and daughters, whom the LORD your God has given you, in the siege and in the distress with which your enemies shall distress you.
54 The man who is the most tender and delicately bred among you will grudge food to his brother, to the wife of his bosom, and to the last of the children who remain to him;
55 so that he will not give to any of them any of the flesh of his children whom he is eating, because he has nothing left him, in the siege and in the distress with which your enemy shall distress you in all your towns.
56 The most tender and delicately bred woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground because she is so delicate and tender, will grudge to the husband of her bosom, to her son and to her daughter,
57 her afterbirth that comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears, because she will eat them secretly, for want of all things, in the siege and in the distress with which your enemy shall distress you in your towns.
60 And he will bring upon you again all the diseases of Egypt, which you were afraid of; and they shall cleave to you.
61 Every sickness also, and every affliction which is not recorded in the book of this law, the LORD will bring upon you, until you are destroyed.
62 Whereas you were as the stars of heaven for multitude, you shall be left few in number; because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God.
63 And as the LORD took delight in doing you good and multiplying you, so the LORD will take delight in bringing ruin upon you and destroying you; and you shall be plucked off the land which you are entering to take possession of it.
64 And the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other; and there you shall serve other gods, of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.
65 And among these nations you shall find no ease, and there shall be no rest for the sole of your foot; but the LORD will give you there a trembling heart, and failing eyes, and a languishing soul;
66 your life shall hang in doubt before you; night and day you shall be in dread, and have no assurance of your life.
67 In the morning you shall say, 'Would it were evening!' and at evening you shall say, 'Would it were morning!' because of the dread which your heart shall fear, and the sights which your eyes shall see.
68 And the LORD will bring you back in ships to Egypt, a journey which I promised that you should never make again; and there you shall offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no man will buy you."
