You're absolutely WRONG. He said that to fulfill prophesy. Isaiah 53:12

God says that Love does no harm
Romans 13:10
You have so corkscrewed that verse into meaningless. Any time any individual rapes the scriptures, jerks them out of their context, in this case proof-texting, for what, points, they are posting heretical doctrin nonsense and it grieves me to see you do this. You are so often dead on point. However, Paul was speaking to fulfilling the Law, Spiritually. If you were on target, that would make me one of the worlds worst murderers. I took up the sword for eight years and protected you and your friends from Russia and China.

What you, specifically erred on is removing that scripture from it's chapter to prove a point... score points instead of seeking to Glorify God. I can dig out a scripture to justify anything and that is why the context of God's Word is so important,

War, discontent and upheaval? You can ask any Veteran and he or she will explain that we pray, knowing the truth never again. And when Jesus sent the disciples after insuring they were armed to defend themselves. We cannot disconnect one book, let alone one verse from the rest of the message God considers so important to us, it all ties together in the Christ.

LOL. How sad. Are you really so in the dark on black history?

Most of the Founders were not comfortable with slavery. That institution was present before their time. Most of the Founders were against it and many attempted to abolish it but faced resistance by British authority. They were very aware that un-biblical slavery was contrary to principles contained in God's Word and the Declaration of Independence.

You are seriously generalizing. As I understand, The Founders did not introduce slavery. I am aware of no evidence that society in general during the founding era condoned slavery. The vast majority of early Americans and most of America’s leaders did not own slaves. Some did, which were often the case in inheritance, such as with George Washington, but many of those people set them free after the war of Independence. Most of America's Founders held slavery in contempt and believed it should be abolished.

You are apparently viewing slavery through the typical southern view only. As if that represents the totality of the early American experience and position on slavery. You are making the big mistake of only presenting the ugly side of black history in early America. But what about the Northern view? Are you not aware that:

1) in Massachusetts, blacks regularly voted in colonial elections?

2) When the Constitution was ratified in Maryland, there more Blacks than Whites voted in Baltimore?

3) When the slave ship arrived at the Massachusetts Colony started be Christian Pilgrims and Puritans, and which carried the first slaves to come there, the ship’s officers were both arrested and imprisoned, and the slaves were returned to Africa at the expense of the colony?

4) That early American colonies passed anti-slavery laws prior to the American Revolution, and that those same laws were then vetoed by the british government in an effort to continue slavery in America?

You have believed and are perpetuating what basically is a lie that results from omission. You're attempts to vilify early America is a futile endeavor; for no matter how hard you try, you cannot and will not change history as your favorite liberal authors have attempted to do so.

What is your explanation for the fact that historically the US has attracted more immigrants than any other nation in the world? That it has retained its constitution longer than any other nation in the world? Do really put this down to naturalistic causes? if so, then what are the Characteristics of a work of God if such does not include uniqueness? Do you disbelieve in the Uniqueness of America?

When plagiarizing an article proposing to be an historic report concerning slavery in America, it is best to not copy verbatim so as to get caught by those who seek out the source that is obviously a copy and paste.
To be taken seriously , don't plagiarize, ever! And most especially do not use the sorry excuse of a website like WallBuilders.

You thank God for someone doing what God told them not to do.
How much do you love the star of that king?
http://biblehub.com/amos/5-26.htm

Don't you remember something about Jesus said about what a great honor it is when a man lies down his life for his friends? Or are you saying that God said we should always sacrifice something? Whatever be the case it's none of your business the way he chooses to live his life. Neither is mine. I have gotten to know Taylor rather well now though and there's no doubt whatsoever in my mind that he loves the Lord as well as his country. Of course he always puts his relationship with God before anyone and anything which is how it should be. I highly doubt that your weak insults to his faith will be enough to get to him.

LOL. Plagiarism? There is no plagiarism stating facts that are commonly available from multiple sources. There is actually a formula for what is and is not plagiarism. I did not do a copy/paste. You should not assume that I do not have access to the very sources used by Wallbuilders.

The source documents are listed on that site. Anyone can locate those sources. For example:

The History of Slavery and the Slave Trade, by William Blake:
https://archive.org/details/historyofslavery00blaka

"...do not use the sorry excuse of a website like WallBuilders." Actually, WallBuilders is one of the best sites available for checking source material.

You should put your time to better use.

Now, maybe you should put your time to better use.

It's alright don't pay any attention to them that's what they want. You did nothing wrong. I think it's better if we all just moved on now.

You call it what you want.There it is.

And Jesus actually said there is no greater love than,for a man to lay down his life for his friends.
JJesus wasnt trying to kill other people in,the process.

You should listen to Jesus more.

amen - disrespecting the flag is disrespecting the country

the gov and the military subsidize football to the tune of millions of dollars

the support should be cancelled so that football owners can pay their own way like the rest of us

if they disrespect our country they sure don't need tax dollars and military dollars - those dollars could be best used elsewhere
Agreed.
These players make the mistake of conflating their identity as professional football players with political activism on the field.
That's where the game gets skewed because the reason these players exist as professional football players is because they are free to be that in this country. That they disrespect the country wherein they have the privilege of being rich, famous, for playing a game, is abhorent.
When they could use their celebrity and their money to actively pursue in an activist measure change they claim they wish to see when on their knee.

And I'd also say it is very likely these players have no idea about the governments link to the NFL.

You're wrong! Copying and pasting other persons intellectual property in a thread and a post under one's own name, not that of the copy/pasted material posted in that thread, is plagiarism.
Don't make excuses for intellectual property theft. And most certainly don't attempt to claim the thief did nothing wrong.
You want to move on after defending that sin?
That's wrong.

This may help educate what is to this point apparently unknown about the violation of plagiarism.


Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense:
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, to "plagiarize" means:
  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

All I'm going to say on that is it isn't plagiarism if the source is cited.

Converseley then per your observation, it is plagarism when the source is not cited.
Which is the case in Politico's offense. And being found out as he was by a member here and then crediting the source from which he stole does not mitigate the circumstance of his original offense.

Alright if he didn't originally cite the source I admit that he made a mistake. But since that's actually none of my business whether he did or not? Why even bother getting involved?

Not only are you being extremely rude, you do not know scripture. Like, David was a man after the heart of God as exressed by YHWH Himself. Yet he was a man, like myself, with blood on his hands. Nowhere in Scripture are we commanded not to defend the walls and kill the enemy before he breaches those walls.

It's just a dumb forum. Do you think he was being intentionally deceptive?
Yes.
Here is why.
We may presume the first of his post is his original thought. However, in the finding of others intellectual property copied and pasted after those original words, it then becomes a matter of seek , find, copy and paste intentionally , consciously, on his part. Omitting the URL source purposefully and from whence he gathered the information he sought for the purpose of adding it to this discussion.

Thou shall not kill.

A very simple commandment that you reject and then pervert.
Those who taketh up the sword shall perish by the sword.
Another very simple saying of Christ that you pervert .

And to believe you thank God for people to ignore his word.
