"I said I was glad that Michelle Obama did NOT wear a head covering"

So did I.
I also said she should have went further than the conservative attire she did wear.
She should have showed them shoulders of hers......
mmmmmmmm.......
From what I read its the Saudis that have been criticizing her
Here is a pictorial history of some first ladies and Condi.
American women in Saudi

"Funny how its now disrespectful for Michelle Obama to do what the right commended Laura for..."

Who is doing any of this?

"Oh, I have an answer, but I'm not going to be providing answers to people who purposely ignore what's right in front of them"

LOL...

"When you don't have an answer..."


Oh, I have an answer, but I'm not going to be providing answers to people who purposely ignore what's right in front of them and then want people to show them once again and then when shown, act as if they never saw what they requested.

Those days are over. If you don't believe me, I'm not losing sleep over it...Honest posters know what is posted on these forums and will acknowledge the disparaging things said about the president and his wife from the right...

PS: The right doesn't walk on water, despite its protestations otherwise...

I guess no one called her disrespectful or a Muslim because she is not a Muslim or disrespectful. She is a beautiful lady.

Funny how you can't read.

I said I was glad that Michelle Obama did NOT wear a head covering!

But then you can't hear since you whined to the mods so much they plugged your ears.

;-)

I thought it was funny how Michelle got a little comeuppance from the Saudis. It showed her what her own arrogance was like and it showed her the truth of islam. That she is "only a woman" and therefore is 'Barack's PROPERTY who should not be out in public anyway'. The very islam that her husband seems to love and enable.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

No need to name names, because we know in general, the right did not criticize Ms. Bush...

But again, it was ok then, but its so wrong now...

No surprise there...And in other news:


Don't recall the right blasting Condi for being disrespectful or calling her a muslim either...

"What happened to loving your brothers and sisters?"

Everyone in the world isn't necessarily a brother or a sister:

"While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:46-50)






"The world in the biblical sense that you are quoting refers to material things."

Not really:

"The Greek negative prohibition me with the present active imperative verb means either stop doing something or do not have the habit of doing it. The “world” (kosmos) represents the system of values, priorities, and beliefs that unbelievers hold that excludes God. It is a moral and spiritual system designed to draw people away from God. It is a seductive system that appeals to all people, believers as well as unbelievers, and calls for our affection, participation, and loyalty (cf. John 3:16- 17, 18- 19; James 4:4). Satan controls this system, and believers should shun it (cf. 5:19; John 12:31; 14:30). Here kosmos does not refer primarily to the created order, though that order is also passing away (1 Cor. 7:31; 2 Pet. 3:7- 13; Rev. 21:1- 4). (Constable's Notes on the Bible)







"The world in the sense that Tim displays as the enemy is his worldly brothers and sisters."

I'm not trying to read Tim's mind on that. I'm just noting what the Bible says about the World and what time stated about not loving the World agree...

The worldly only love their own. Hypocrisy is quick to anger as a result.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Romans 12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

"Good thing it is not one verse that makes us a Christian... Ask tim if he believes Jesus is God....see how that goes. Ask him if he believes faith is the requirement to enter into the family of God?"


Why do I need to ask him that? Tim is not on trial here, nor is the subject and/or focus of the point. Again, what the Bible says about loving the world is quite clear and that is the only point that I made.






"Do not mistake one truth from tim, to be the agreement with the whole word of God. Also, go ahead and ask him how he feels about Paul. Telling."

And that is where you and I differ....I'm not here looking for every angle to attack Tim. I'm here to share the truth, and when Tim agrees with the truth, I'll say so...But I'm not surprised in your response, because you do the same thing to me...namely dismiss the truth simply because I said it...

Whatever floats your boat.

tim "When it comes to mankind, I don't delude myself in order to find a niche I'm comfortable with. " There is no niche outside of Christ that will hold any comfort for anyone. There is no real comfort outside of Christ. In fact comfort is not the measure of Truth, neither is uncomfortable, for that matter. You take pride in uncomfortableness and folks who stand against your mumbo jumbo....that pride will do you no good.

Humble yourself. You are no different that one single man or woman on here. We are all sinners, none of us measures better than the other, I do not care what anyone has done on here, I am no different, we are equal in Christ Jesus. Murder does not even make me better than the murderer. That is what I love about Christ, we are equal...there is no male, female, Jew, Gentile. We are all the same.....NO niches. You do not measure Holy because you believe yourself no one worthy of your two or three rules. tim's rules.

Unless you do not believe that Jesus is not God the Son and you don't believe faith is the requirement...I would be very careful where you put your vote of confidence and be careful how easily you fall for untruths.

Actually, Tim is not far from the mark:

"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." (1 John 2:15-17)

Your preoccupation with terrorism or any fear mongering such as the article below obviously has served it's purpose. Thinking and the ability to understand has never worked to the advantage of worldly institutions. Blessed are the robotic for they shall fall in line. Hope you don't fly. You have more chance of harm that way than at the hands of a terrorist.

BTW your little article comes at an interesting time as the PM tries to get the same Cheneyesque anti-privacy laws passed in order to unify the North American Union process. Your real enemies are at home, not abroad.

I think you, and I mean everyone but me, should do what works for them, what they can do a have a free conscious. One more time, I would cover my head, because for me it is out of love for my friend the King. Obviously, you and norm would choose not to. That is great, have to. My friends Tower, Another1, and Sgm4law, likes that Michelle does not cover her head. That is fine with me, and is not a big deal to me...it is all in style. It would not be a religious thing to me, it would be because King Abdullah has always been a friend, and I respect him for his long term show of friendship.

Right now the Saudi's are suffering for their commitment to us, so my personal style would be to cover my head. I know their soldier has suffered greatly and is most likely dead. God help him.

Sidenote....I also tried very hard to not offend a large native American culture where I lived and worked. I was respectful to their religious rites.

@All I can say about Michelle Obama, is for me...I am going to the funeral of a King, who is a friend to USA. Do what seems respectful to that long standing friendship. Not to your style but what is respectful. It is a personal choice. I myself would weigh my friendship and support and honor that person with great respect. @
