    Once Saved Always Saved is Utter Nonsense

    First example: Romans 11 And Hebrews 6 Even Calvin in his commentaries never dealt with the phrase "partakers of the Holy Spirit" in his commentaries. You can go check for yourself. Finally you'll say I only need faith. Sure, but then ask your wife if she thinks you've been faithful after...

    Why did Jesus get angry at the Temple?

    He called it a den of THIEVES. What did the sellers do wrong? Jesus called them robbers. Was what they were doing robbery? I thought mutual consent is all that's required to make a transaction moral. ;)

    Changing sales tax exemptions for food

    Why do conservatives value landlords and employers over families?

    Especially when landlord profits average 5-15% per year without taking into account property value increases. It's a lucrative field, but families are getting crushed. Further, wages aren't coming anywhere close to keeping up with the cost of living, not to mention productivity. Are you okay...

    The Monetary System is Fleecing You

    Almost all of our money is created by banks, tied to debt, and the banks get paid interest for this creation. All of the money that you use, it's all debt.
