Re: The Left Hates You. Act Accordingly.

So what about the part in the bible that talks about Jesus coming back on a horse with blood up to the reigns?What about Gods direction at wiping out whole nations at his direction?What about sanctuary cities in the bible?Families were not considered blood guilty for killing the slayer if they could get their hands on before they got to the city.Gods rules and Gods book!
Someone tries to hurt my kid,wife or someone that cant defend themselves am I supposed to not fight for them?If thats what it takes to go to heaven Ill gladly go to hell!

Oddly enough he led them to pray just after this statement.
What you are doing is twisting individual passages out of context to fit your emotions.
Not quite. They produced two swords, and His response was: That is a sufficient number (of swords.) It wasn't like they needed enough to equip an army, only enough for self defense of the group. The reason He forbade Peter from using his sword in the garden, is because (unlike Islam, where the sword is a central tool by which they do their evil work) in Christianity the physical sword is not to be used to advance the cause of the Kingdom of God. Self defense, and advancing the Kingdom of God, are two different things. We advance the Kingdom of God with spiritual weapons, as outlined in Ephesians 6. We exercise self defense with physical weapons, as outlined in Luke 22:36.

Quote:
When he says if someone slaps you on the right cheek he is talking about repaying violence with kindness. This is repeated over and over. How could you miss it? The context even refers to replacing the philosophy of an eye for an eye with this of non-retaliation.
I did not miss anything. That is basically what I said above that the passage meant.

Remember I said regarding the passage: "And as for the passage you posted, Jesus is talking about not retaliating to insults, not about the right to defend oneself from a life threatening attack."

The "violence" of being slapped on the cheek is not life threatening violence. The slap on the cheek was meant as an insult, and a challenge to a fight, which one could walk away from. It wasn't a deadly assault. It didn't call for self defense. You are trying to make apples into oranges. Non retaliation to insults, and self defense against deadly force, are two different things. Don't try to make them somehow equivalent.

Yeah. Unrestrained immigration from clashing cultures worked out so well for the first natives, I can hardly wait to try it in our times.

Maybe our kids will get nicer reservations than theirs.

Re: The Left Hates You. Act Accordingly.

Funny how white leftists(socialists?fascists)encourage fighting, violence or racial pride from minorities but if a white guy defends himself or takes pride in his work or heritage he is a racist hater.
They can go fook themselves with a cactus!Mentally deranged parasites that need jailed or in a nut house.

Liberals Outraged, Demand Termination After Bill Maher Says "I'm A House Ni**er"


Quote:
Maher's white Californian liberal audience clapping for him saying he's a house nigger is why I know black folks are on our own in the USA.
Just need to stop listening to that 'progressive' crowd, the propaganda, read some books about history and such...learn from the past. No schools are doing that though. Why not? Doesn't our dear leaders have our best interest in mind? Gosh, why doesn't our federalized schools teach actual life skills anymore??
It's still following the agenda thus far. Search "Agenda 21 for Dummies".

Just wow...that whole comment w/o any substance to refute anything. BTW, I'm not on the left or right. I'm on the truth side. It appears you have a bias though. My apologies if I'm wrong.

It does. If you haven't figured out by now the two are the same club, well just think about that. Unregister yourself completely and opt out unless you see something you really like. Both do not represent you or me. They represent who lines the ol' pocket and grease the palms - foreign or domestic.

Scum, the lot of them. They haven't figured out how to get rich by working for a living so they lie, cheat steal and otherwise bamboozle the people.

Funny thing is they're really not smart or adept at it either... What a racket.

???

when in reality I'm well aware that the democrats are a bunch of snake-oil saleswomen. but i can also see that the other side, is pretty much of the same nature.

i see past my support for the "left" and recognize the faults of the "left"s leader's

thats what y'all need to do too. look past your support and see the racism

Look up Maxine Waters on Wikipedia. Once you see the kind of person she is you'll see that the people who elected her are as nutty as she is.

Castro and Cuba
Waters has visited Cuba a number of times, praised Fidel Castro, and demanded an end to the U.S. trade embargo.[29] In 1998 Waters wrote a letter to Castro citing the 1960s and 1970s as “a sad and shameful chapter of our history,” and thanked Castro for providing help to those who needed to “flee political persecution.”[30] In 1998, Waters wrote an open letter to Fidel Castro asking him not to extradite African-American activist Assata Shakur.[31][32] After a woman drowned during an attempted escape from Cuba to the U.S. in 1999, leaving a six-year-old son, Elian Gonzales, who survived and requested asylum in the U.S., Waters called on President Bill Clinton to return him at once to Cuba.[
