    i appreciate the sentiment, but even Jesus recognized the futility of preaching the Good Word where it was not welcomed

    He could do no miracles in Nazareth because of un-belief. It didn't stop Him from preaching. Sodom and Gomorrah would have repented if they heard Him preach. His hometown neighbors just hardened their hearts against Him.

    Good points - I was thinking more of his instructions to the apostles - Matthew 10:14

    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

    In my devotions:

    1Co 8:1b We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.



    1Co 8:2 And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know (guilty at times).


    1Co 8:3 But if any one loves God, he has been known of (and by) God.
