On "The Private War in The Mind" from Reformation Theology
Yet there is a reality to spiritual warfare and it is something God certainly wants us to know about, or else He would not have revealed it to us in His Word. If we just stay with the Scripture, we will be on safe and sure ground. God wants us to understand the warfare, know our enemy and live a life free from his clutches.
Hillbuzz on waking up Americans:
this paragraph is talking about why the Republicans don't seem to be all that interested in winning:
Maybe these men truly don’t know how to do that…but we think it’s more like the Washington Generals knowing they have a pretty good racket losing basketball games to the Globetrotters, so why start working harder and winning when the script their all following says they need to lose in the end (if they want to keep their cushy existence as the lovable losers).
A good article on gay marriage by "The Gay Patriot"
If you feel a victim because the state doesn’t call your union what you want to call it, well, then you have really politicized your psyche.
He says that gay marriage (the union of 2 people) already exists, what they lack is state recognition. If they went for the recognition of the union (without calling it "marriage"), they would have the rights of the state recognition of the union.
A commenter said,
Even for straights, a State marriage license is a thing created by State legislation (which I call a privilege); not a thing which morally precedes the State and exists apart from it (which I call a fundamental right).
Which is why, in certain circumstances, I would decline piece of paper that tells me that the state has given me permission to marry.
That's God's job, not the state's.
