    That's sure a topsy turvy world you are living in where respecting Jesus as knowing what He was doing is a sign of "incredible arrogance and thinking you know more than Him isn't.

    Have you ever considering following His teachings? It's Christmas, so why not start today?

    Could be.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yes it does. It does require you actually think and recognize context.

    Really? Good to know the OT "got it right when it commands parents bring disobedient children to the town square for a good old fashioned stoning
    Deuteronomy 21:18-21 KJV - If a man have a stubborn and rebellious - Bible Gateway

    Didn't Jesus in the NT stop a stoning, saying that those with no sins should cast the first stone? Seems to me this is in direct conflict with the OT.

    Whoops...apdst.

    What an ironic inclusion of a comma where you would not have placed it if you understood anything about English grammar and intended to convey the meaning you are attempting to convey.

    That comma was misplaced?

    Or, it could be that his life experience was different than your's. I bet you never hoed cotton alongside black folks.

    Not trying to derail this thread at all. My point, which is seeming to go over the heads of a few here, is that this is a non story. Destruction of freedom of speech? Since when were private companies part of the government? I don't get it. Meanwhile, while America debates this non story, our freedoms are REALLY being curtailed by an out of control government, and we don't seem to give a damn, to the point where we believe this non story becomes more important than the real life crap that is happening right in front of us.

    Based upon what you were intending, yes. There shouldn't have been a comma at all were you indicating there was no such thing as the New Covenant.

    Of course, Hebrews 8:6-7 belies your claim, but since your world view is based upon the O.T. rather than the New, I assume you have not read it.

    I think the forum commentariat has enough time on their hands, even on Christmas, to debate and discuss both topics.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
