"what He did at the Cross."
Let me explain something to you. You can't quote mine scientists in a discussion about science. Science is a method, not a body of data. What some scientist says today can easily be disproved tomorrow. No scientific finding is the final word. Ever. When you Christians get in your arguments about who is a real Christian and who isn't, who knows the Bible and who doesn't who God favors and who he doesn't or whatever, you hurl Bible passages at each other to try to prove your point. It's called proof texting and it's absurd because no Christian has a clue about the Bible, Jesus, God or anything else, especially science as you have repeatedly and quite humorously demonstrated. That doesn't work in a discussion of facts, of data, of method, of evidence and so on. Unlike religion, no avenue of human endeavor is more open to scrutiny than science. Anybody can study Nature. So take all of your creationist nonsense and write it down complete with all the experiments and demonstrations you have done and submit your paper for scientific review and let me know how that goes for you. When you win a Nobel Prize for science and become rich and famous then and ONLY then will you have won anything. Until then you're just another liar for Jesus.
If you were going to create a false story, fake God and false religion, you'd cut out the unpleasant bits. But the authors did not cut this out, because it's part of their history. It leads to its authenticity.
Get the book "Integrity" by Dr. Henry Cloud and have him read it (both of you, really). It is pretty amazing and has actually helped me to be aware of some things without turning me into a defensive, cynical @sshat. Now I'm just an @sshat ;-)
Because she had total enmity with the devil (Gn 3:15) she was immune to his two weapons?sin and death. He could have no power over her.
Tell that to the blob as he is absorbing your brains

I don?t think social safety net programs are encouraging anyone to sit on their butt and do literally nothing all day. The average benefit awarded is actually quite low. 70% of people on welfare and food stamps actually have jobs and work very hard. They just don?t get paid enough to provide for their basic needs. When youre working for some of the richest corporations in the world the government shouldn?t have to spend taxpayer dollars to make sure people?s kids eat. If you truly want to address poverty, start by addressing corporations that underpay and exploit their workforce.

an example of how I wish to handle death.
Bingo, we dont imortalize anti-government individuals now.
I can quote the verse in any language you prefer...the words remain the same. They are still the Lord's. But then, you are the "minister" right?
its not like I didnt give you ample opportunity.
