Yet Jesus and Daniel and Moses, etc., prayed publicly. The Pharisees did it for show. I don't believe someone like Tim Tebow does it for show. He is not ashamed of loving and knowing God. If he had flicked someone off, no one would make such a fuss as they do for praying. He truly humbles himself by praying on the sidelines after a game, doesn't he? I'd be unwilling to do that because I know scoffers would pop out of the woodwork. We must hide the fact that we pray and love God enough we will not even notice others around us when we pray, like I and my friends do before eating when in restaurants.

You are conflating what the haughty Pharisees did with publicly going off to the side and praying?

Oh my. Very judgemental. If a buddhist or muslim did their thing on the side, it wouldn't bother me at all. But Jesus told his followers they will persecute them because of him. Tim tebow LIVES his faith, not just makes a show of public praying, as you are wont to accuse him of.

Donald, Donald....

Here you go! As far as the "year", since there is some discussion on when the Buddha was born and died, somewhere between the 6th and the 4th centuries BCE, that would be difficult. But here are some interesting writings on the subject.

J. Green,

Now, now, don't take my worda the wrong way, ok? I see nothing wrong with public prayer, as long
as it's done with the right motives. Even Jesus prayed in public, so I see no reason why we shouldn't
do the same. IF it's truly from good motives.
However, using each and every opportunity we have for the purpose of public prayer is not done from right motives.
It is done the way the Pharisees did it.

Since "Public Schools" are PUBLIC, I see no reason why Christians can't use the Public Schools for their own purpose,
since everyone else also uses the Public Schools for their own purpose. Aren't Christians also part of the "public"?
Don't we also pay our taxes for the schools? If atheists and homosexuals can use the public schools to advance their
own causes, why can't Christians?

Just as long as no laws are made which make it easier [or harder] for one party or another to use the schools, I see nothing wrong
with it. What I DON'T want to see are laws which attempt to make this a "Christian nation, based on Christian teachings", or an
"Atheist Nation, based on Atheist teachings." Or ANY "Nation, based on ANY 'ist' teachings", for that matter.

a servant of Christ Jesus,

mrs exp,

You forget that all our laws against theft, murder, sodomy, incest, bestiality, etc. are all from the Bible
------------------------------------
Where does it say incest is wrong?

"Transvaginal Ultrasound
Your doctor has requested a transvaginal ultrasound. Ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that uses sound waves to "see" inside your body and create detailed images which the physician can study."
Cedars-Sinai says nothing about this procedure being performed on pregnant women.

I see. There was one governor who wanted the ultrasound to determine the age of the baby before an abortion was undertaken. One man. He backed away from it.

But I wholeheartedly agree that the taxpayers should never be forced to fund abortions, and not only religious people are against snuffing out of preborn children.

But before a baby is snuffed out, the mother should be educated about the baby in her through an ultrasound. Why not? There have been a number of women who claim they would not have aborted had they seen that, yes, there was a human being inside of them. Why would anyone choose to keep women ignorant?

It is no choice. It is a threat. Believe in me or I will send your soul to perish. For god so loved the world... Your god has a strange way of showing his love.

Jesus said to pray in private with god as your witness and god would reward you.
Christian use of the example jesus used is a red herring.
He used the Pharisees as one example not THE example to work with.
Paul said to pray everywhere not jesus.

Yes the NASB puts brackets around some verses and a note in the margin.

Birutegal,
I go by 1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler--not even to eat withsuch a one. 12 For what I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13 *but those who are outside, God judges,* remove the wicked man from among yourselves.

"Then it says that Jesus said his coming would be like the flood, sudden. "

Is that out of context? He might have been flirting with Mary Magdalene when he said that!

Coming on the clouds in an airplane, probably. There's plenty of power in one of those big jets.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 19, 2012 8:29:18 PM PDT
Nancy,

That's true, but then again, a jet can't raise someone from the dead [though they might make enough noise
to wake up the dead].

Hi Bir, I agree. Tim's quiet faith is something that I can't understand why anyone would object to him. Amy behavior that is offensive seems to be tolerated amd even encouraged.

And voting down something that is evil is not "judging" per I Cor 5. We are not in any way to support/accept evil in any way, according to the last verse in Romans 1. We can show support for evil by our vote.

Oh, Nancy...how you err. Jesus ascended into heaven in front of eyewitnesses and an angel said he would return the same way he left. No airplanes at that time.
