Safety net, fine. But how do you oversee it so it isn't abused? The fact that the safety net has no oversight and continually expands is what has brought the dollar to the edge of collapse because of the uncontrolled debt. We are not envious of the rich. We want to BECOME the rich. You might take that to heart and learn how the money system works, and put it to work for yourself, then when YOU get rich you can give yours away. Capisce?
I wonder how the Dems would react. Start a movement to abolish our Constitution and go to a parliamentary system where the prime minister can be voted out at any time. See how far you get.
Scott, they Let Ed go with no notice in 1979 because (and I have this on first hand witness authority) Ed was getting more women than Lou was and Lou was upset about it. By then Lou and Mick were the power structure in the band as the songwriters, and management felt they had to be kept happy. There is more to it than this but as the chicks would know, Ed was a much handsomer dude than Lou.
The context about "tongues will cease" shows very clearly that this will happen when Christ returns. It does not mean sooner or later you stop speaking; that's normal with any language.
This question that does not have a short answer. Mainly one must "rightly divide" the text (from the languages from which it was translated). The reformation came because Luther showed how tradition had skewered the message. Voting has nothing to do with it, but the cultural roles of women in ancient times were necessitated by the times. People of color aren't even referenced and Christians practiced great error in how they treated them.
