    I'll never accept mad as anything other than cultish.

    Maybe it's time to get back into discussing the psychology of mad when compared to the true power of the gospel. You can't help but see how mad comes up with an alternative answer to the fleshly predicament of Romans 7. It should be Romans 8, but most madists don't understand what it means to walk in the Spirit, which is why you never see them talk about it.

    But this is a discussion for another thread and another day.

    But this is a discussion for another thread and another day.
    You're confusing the obviously long entrenched habit of such not to walk in their particular understanding of what walking in the Spirit means, as being the same as not understanding what that means.

    Fact is that a person's knowing what they should or should not do, does not mean they are going to do, or not do it.

    Earlier today I was hanging out with someone who announced they were going to cut sugar from their day to day.

    A moment later, they announced "well, after I finish what's left of it" and proceeded to add some to what they were about to drink.

    You take a Believer who has been doing that sort of thing for decades, and you are basically dealing with an individual who is long "past feeling."

    There is no reasoning with such.

    And that is obviously many of the so called MADs on here.

    I have come to refer to them as Trump supporters. For they obviously believe in his same practice of carrying on exactly as he does against anyone who does not kiss up to him.

    At the same time, I continue to find it fascinating how such can continue to so ungracefully insist that others subscribe to the gospel of the grace of God, or face being continually spit on by them.

    I mean, one has got to be one heck of a hypocrite to be that blind to his or her own hypocrisy.

    But then again, even the Lord Himself "failed" to get through to such.

    Again, though, that does not necessarily mean such do not know what they are talking about; only that they are hypocrites about it.

    Case in point...

    Matthew 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 23:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 23:7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

    There you see both sides - they know what's what - but long lost the ability to actually see themselves through it.

    It is what it is.

    Rom. 5:8

    It is what it is.

    Rom. 5:8
    Well personally, as a Brit, I don't see too much wrong with Trump, although I don't really know the guy.
    One thing that impressed me about him so far, is his stand against the Paris agreement. Whether it's the wrong thing or the right thing, he did what he said he was going to do, which is kind of refreshing.
    He was among the world's leaders, and he put the direct interests of Americans above his own reputation among the world's leaders, and the tree hugging liberals.

    However, it's also dangerous to put too much expectation on the worldly leaders,

    Psalms 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.

    Christians should be looking to God, who will never fail and disappoint.
    Delight yourself in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. . Psalms 37:4

    Great passage.
