I'm sure the 12 viewers we're delighted by this bit of *cough* holiday cheer from MSNBC.
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.

What makes you think there were that many viewers? :silly:

It just never ceases to amaze me how utterly bitter the people at MSNBS are on a regular basis.  They spew more bile at individuals than anyone I have ever seen, and it makes me ill to consider how it must be to live your life filled with so much hate for anyone or any thing.  What's more, a lot of the bile they spew over there is actually written for the hosts...they are bigger teleprompter junkies than Obama ever was.  They are fed this stuff on purpose and they are still on the air because someone is watching, and some sponsors still pay to advertise on MSNBS.

My Mom's mother was a Jehova's Witness. One Christmas, she came and saw their tree, and told Dad it was pagan religion, blah, blah, blah. He told her that he would get to Heaven if he had 100 Christmas trees.

As an aside about religious cults, and how ignorant people interpret the Bible, my uncle's daughter left JW and became a born again Christian. Church doctrine says to disown those who leave, so he disowned her. I didn't know this about them.

A few months ago, Mom came from Fl. to visit. He and his sister came also, along with his daughter. We had a nice time, and when they left, his daughter held back. She then began crying, saying that day was the first day he spoke to her in many years, that she was surprised he showed up in the same room with her. She said she loves him so much and wants just a hug, but that will never happen.

People on MSNBC are doing America a disservice by initiating their talking points, of which they know little or nothing about. It's those who take scripture wrong who are doing the most damage, not only atheists.

True, and one destructive way to misinterpret scripture is to take it out of context. There's a Bible teacher I know, Greg Koukl, who always says, "Never read a Bible verse." He continues:
Quote
Instead, read a paragraph, at least. Always check the context. Observe the flow of thought. Then focus on the verse.

Remember, meaning always flows from the top down, from the larger units to the smaller units. A reflection on a Bible passage from a sermon or a devotional may be edifying, encouraging, and uplifting. If it is not the message of the text, though, it lacks biblical authority even when the quote comes right out of the Word of God.

If you will do this one thing if you will read carefully in the context applying the paraphrase principle you will begin to understand the Bible as God intended. Without the bigger picture you'll be lost.

Only when you are properly informed by God's Word the way it is written in its context can you be transformed by it. Every piece becomes powerful when it's working together with the whole.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

I never heard that before. How true. My dad thought like that.
