    For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.""Honesty and integrity are qualities and values so needed among the Christian community? A lack of these things have become synonymous with many church goers today.The Church must be a light to the world to show guidance.Honesty and integrity adminstered by LOVE is the only way to lead those that are lost to true Christainity.Please substantiate the validity of your post?You have propagated your political views and grounded them with scripture.A pure heart must be clean before God and men,without fault.

    Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as SOUNDING BRASS,or a TINKLING CYMBAL.Though I have the gift of prophecy,understand all mysteries,all knowledge;though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains,and have not charity,I am nothing. Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,and though I give my body to be burned,and have not charity,it profiteth me nothing.Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;charity vaunteth not itself,is not puffed up,Doth not BEHAVE itself UNSEEMLY, seeketh NOT her own,is not easily provoked,THINKETH NO EVIL; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but REJOICETH IN THE TRUTH; Beareth all things, believeth all things,hopeth all things,endureth all things.Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

    Read and post what pleases you and I shall render unto Ceaser the things that are his.Are you bound by the words you have spoken and blinded by your political heart.Your words "sorry" do not offend me as I am not easily offended by what you post or report.The fact that you cannot post the facts to support your theories suggest that you idolize your wisdom and find yourself faultless before God as can be witnessed by other which is a clear loss of testimony.Please post facts and answer the questions? Is a devoted Catholic that follows the Pope as the Head of the Authoritive word of GOD a pagan and any differnet than the non-beleiver.Wisdom without truth and love?Do you also feel that Pagan Catholics have no right to be cictizens in this country? What about Mormons? Do you feel they are cultic and pagans and have no rights to thier beliefs?.What about Jehovah Witness'? Please answer these questions? Or do you beleive only those of your belief signed the DOI.

    Please document the many interviews of Obama Commentators and theologians? 2-Please list the many other Presidents that took an oath of Pres. office on Abraham Lincoln Bible? 3-You have changed your posting-not talking about atheism: Please post from DOI the many references to Christ that are listed in the Declaration of Independence?I believe in the Father ,Son and Holy Ghost.That no man can be saved and see God but that they be born again.I believe in the Second coming of Christ and the Blessed hope. I believe there is a hell and a heaven. I believe abortion is murder.I believe that same sex marriage is wrong in the eyes of God.I believe prayer is essential to a personal relationship to God.YOU CALL the Papal pagan and at least 3 of the forefathers that signed the DOI were devoted to the Vatican and the Pope,believing him to be the Head & Authoritve WORD of GOD here on earth.You call me a babbler sir,I write that with deep concern over you condemnation of me.

    What is wrong with you? something is terribly wrong with your thinking. I believe you're not saved and haven't accepted Jesus into your heart. your personal babbling and opinions make no sense and aren't true. Sorry but everything I've mentioned up here IS The Truth whether you like it or not. I've read up history on our founding father in relation to their faith in Jesus and God the father and doctrine or no doctrine, read the declaration of independence. You'll find that there's NO Trace of atheism there and they all signed the document in one accord. You must be an atheist and I'm sorry for you. Very sorry.

    Religious freedom is exactly what they sought and freedom from Imperial rule. Many of those that you describe were assocaites of Christainity but held doctrines that would be considered atheists in nature by our teachings to day. We do not burn accused witches to the stake to secure thier fortunes. We do not annialate primitive people to procure land. It is sad that you resolve to hostilty in your post as it shows a true weakness not compatible with Christ.Also you have failed to answer at least 3 post that question you directly.I also want to know these answers to those questions. It seems that you exagerate your thoughts as factual when it comes to promoting your political mind.Be honest with yourself and see the harm done to your testimony. Be careful with what judgement that you blast others with.

    anonymous, read up all the letters and biography's of George Washington, Samuel Adams and other great founding fathers which were overwhelmingly outspoken of their Christian faith and why the USA was founded. The declaration of independence has evidence written all over it. Please save your hogwash and you need to read your bible if you have one. Did you compromise with the brainwashed humanistic society we live in and accept lies from the devil like so many others have done? You make no sense and should run for a position which enables the enemy. This land was for the early Christian settlers to worship Jesus Christ, read the holy bible and not be under English religious laws enforced back then. That's it! Don't complicate the issue! That's it! They made it so others have the right to choose who, what or when they can worship as well in our constitution. So what! That doesn't cover up the fact that this nation was founded by Christians and has been mainly associated with Christianity!

    US citizen for now Location: Washington on May 1, 2010 at 01:44 PM The Papal is and has always been a pagan church which picked and chosen their own scriptures from the original scriptures given to man by God ---- So now we have pagan Founding forefathers that were Christians . You cannot have it both ways ! I think you need to read you own post dude. Man you have written a lot of post ? Why have you not answered the questions directed at you ? I also am anxious to know the answers? Do you really expect people to respect your religious angle and take you serious, while you totaly avoid some very significant important questions directed to you.
