Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/20/2019 5:29:46 PM

Sen. Elizabeth Warren explained at a townhall meeting sponsored by CNN in Jackson, Miss., on Monday night how God picks some people to go to heaven and others to go to another place. She did this after she was asked by moderator Jake Tapper what role faith plays in her life. After saying that she was raised a Methodist and used to teach Sunday school, Warren said: “The story for me is Matthew 26, and I´m sure some of you, a lot of you know this story. You know, this is the one where the shepherd is dividing the world

I used to think I knew Who made it to heaven at who mated to the other place but I´ve realized that´s far beyond my pay grade.

Just when you think this washed out commie dish rag can´t go any lower - Presto! She opens her stinking pie hole to set a new level of hypocrisy and narcissism.

Hey Lizzie, you are in favor of murdering newborn infants. Care to guess where you are headed after you breathe your last breath?

Hint: Say hi to Satan.

And what I hear in that is two things that guide me every day. The first is there is God, there is value in every single human being. Every single human being.

Anyone else see the obvious problem with this?

I can’t judge her faith! That is given to a person by God through the Holy Spirit. I do question any Christian who is a rabid supporter of killing unborn children! This is where she should be acting on these children’s behalf, but her religion (liberalism) won’t allow that! Shame on you! The Great Father that you have worshiped for many moons will ask you why someday! And he won’t be politically correct!

Accepting what Jesus Christ did for you personally when he died for you on the cross is the only thing that will get you into heaven. Nothing else. Nothing.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the father except through me”. It’s that simple.

But for some people, it’s that difficult. Quoting selected innocuous bible verses will get you nowhere eternally.

All who die without accepting Jesus will not enter the gates of Heaven. Not my words. But God’s words in the bible.

MOAB. I know how you feel. But you have to remember that God loves everyone that is alive; everyone. He hates their sin, but loves them.

The Bible says that “God is not willing for anyone to perish, but that all should come to the knowledge of the truth”. Jesus is truth.

You should pray for these people.

Because, 20 seconds after their life has ended-their eternal Home has already been decided. “It is appointed unto man once to die, and after that the judgment”.

I don’t want anyone to go to Hell; God does not send anyone there-they send themselves.

Yes, the life Ms. Warren is living does not mimic the life of a Christian. And, if she continues her lifestyle, she has a very rude awakening after she dies.

But, please say a prayer for all of these people who have totally lost their way.

That is what God would want you to do.

Dont you just love it when the demonrat socialists try to bend Scripture by misquoting or misrepresenting it to sell socialism. Otherwise, the persecute people of the Judeo-Christian faith.

The only way to Heaven is a person born-again relationship with Jesus. There is only One Way, and being a good person will not get you there.

Here is a part of Matthew 26 verse 45b "... See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.."

I looked up Matthew 26, the "progressive" socialists never get Scripture quotes correct. I suspect her ignorance was being used by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the betrayal, arrest and crucifixion of Our Lord during this Second Week of Lent.

Warren meant Matt 25:33 “He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.” The King then invites those who will inherit the Kingdom; those that fed Him, gave Him drink, clothed Him and welcomed Him when a stranger. The righteous will ask when they did such things for Him, and He will reply, “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Conversely, those that did not do for others will be cast into eternal punishment and will cry out, “Lord, Lord!”, but the Lord will reply He knew them not.

The quote from Ephesians is in reference to the Sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross for the Salvation of Mankind. Nothing any human singly or as a whole did deserved this Saving Grace made available by our God to every living soul. He does not pick and choose those to whom He extends this Saving Grace. He gave us free will to choose Him; seek and ye shall find, knock and the door will open, ask and you shall receive. Christ was talking about Faith, not a big bank account. Once Jesus has been found, the faith journey has just begun as Grace and Acts are two sides of the Coin of Salvation. Jesus tells us plainly in Matt 25:45-46 that we will be judged by our actions.

The despicable Clintons also quoted from the Bible in attempts to convince people of their faith. Slick even carried his Bible around as a prop. I don´t know for sure but I don´t think that the Application to Heaven includes questions on ethnicity, the size of your bank account or your political affiliation. No, Lizzy, your Native American ancestry will not give you head of the line privileges.

God has Ten Commandments and I suspect that these fake worshippers have broken every one of them.

Wow, what a relief to hear her talking about the Bible and heaven. I don’t know what I would have done without her exegesis.

The truth is that no one knows why some people go to heaven and others go to hell. “I will have mercy upon whom I will have mercy, and I will harden whom I will harden.“

God chooses who will be saved and who will not be saved. We don’t have that power. He does not save on the basis of our good works. He predestines according to his own good pleasure. All he requires is faith in Jesus Christ, and even that cannot happen without divine quickening.

So, Faux, Best to stay away from the Bible quotes.

Then why did God bother to send His Son to suffer His Passion, Death and Resurrection?

Why bother to be a Christian?

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
