Atlas,

I am not so thinned skinned as some. but you do have a way about you that strike nerves.

About you Ayn Rayn Statement, you could say anything about her and I wouldn't bat an eye unless you tried to say she was a Practicing Christian. the woman was a blatant anti-christ, philosopher whose teachings has led many young Christians astray when they are introduced to her teaching at Colleges and Universities around our nation.

Try being a little more tactful with your words my friend and you may find you will get better results.

One day I was really mad at a brother in the Lord but I was trying to keep my cool. why was I mad, He had made false accusations against me with no proof and instead of coming to me first he just spread rumors. when I finally got a chance to confront him. His always twisting and more lies directly to my face made me even more angry. after the unsuccessful meeting the mediator got me alone and asked me two questions, "Why didn't I see Christ in you?" I was floored by it. his next question sent me to tears, "are you saved?"

I spent twelve hours in prayer and fasting to answer those questions. the first one was easy I was in my flesh. the second one the Lord gave me assurance and led me to read a Psalm 118 and brought back the Joy of his salvation into my life.

Speaking of Rush...

Three page article reveals
Liberal Strategy on Rush Limbaugh

“We helped get the ball rolling on this because we’re looking and listening to different Republican voices around the country, and the one that was the loudest and getting the most attention was Rush Limbaugh,” explained DCCC chairman and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.)...

You guys are wound too tight.
I am a Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck fan myself
When it concerns Rush, i can take him or leave him,yeah,he has a checkered past,but has gotten over it,besides Legal drugs are Legal,Illegal is still Illegal.
Look at all the cost to the tax payers for the legalization of alcohol.
Broken familys,Rehab,Innocent people dying,health care cost etc.. just for there irresponsibility.
And the govn't focuses more on cigarettes than alcohol.

With all the media bickering,do you think anyone has really made a difference?

Right, now i am looking towards a socialist government,a One world banking system and the coming of the LORD!

I know, it's so funny that people that want marijuana legalized will use the alcohol prohibition analogy. They'll say that removing prohibition stopped all the organized crime and murders etc. Well I hate to break it to ya, but alchohol is the king of drugs:

THANKS TO KILLER ALCOHOL . . .

* There are over 18 million alcoholics in America.
* Cirrhosis of the liver kills over 30,000 each year and rising.
* 50 percent of the people on welfare are due to killer alcohol.
* 80 percent of all fire deaths are due to killer alcohol.
* 65 percent of the drownings
* 22 percent of home accidents
* 77 percent of falls
* 36 percent of pedestrian accidents
* 65 percent of all murders
* 40 percent of all assaults
* 35 percent of all rapes
* 30 percent of other sex crimes
* 30 percent of all suicides
* Over 80 percent of all arrests are linked to killer alcohol!


From: http://www.av1611.org/drug.html

So I guess we can expect things to be different if we legalize drugs like Marijuana (which ruined a perfectly good 10 years of my life) etc... I can say without any hesitation that we should not allow potheads to influence public policy!

For Jesus' sake,
Stephen

I am an Independant Fundamental Bible Believing Baptist. Atlas is way off base, and I certainly do not in anyway shape or form share in his rantings. Rush deserves our prayers and Christian compassion, if that cannot be given, then be silent. When I was in the "world" I was an occaisional listener, now I just have no TV, to much silly stuff, listen to the radio, Gospel music, and when tempted to be unkind or not giving of grace, I go to God's word for wisdom. Grab your KJV Bible, Atlas and come back when you have read it through, I am sure that will give all of us some much needed peace. God Bless

Galatians 5:14-26 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Shall we cease this vain striving?

In Christian love,
Renee
