    From England and Europe. Read the entire article. There are both negative and positive comments on Bush's presidency.

    Can you not post anything positive about the past administration? And, when will we see anything from you negative about President Obama? We probably won't.

    You must not have read the whole article. There are positives there. Are you not at all interested in how other parts of the world view the US. I published it to add information and knowledge to those willing to read.

    Do you want me to quote the positives from the article?

    Not really. Most of them are Godless, semi-socialist states that lay down for every maniacal dictator that comes around. Since we usually have to bail out the Euro-weenies with our own blood, they should be kissing OUR feet.

    I don't care what they think, because they demonstrate every 40 years or so that they CAN"T think.

    Does Europe worry about what I think of them ?

    And no, the title of the article was all I had to read.

    And after 2 world wars, it's no longer opinion.

    If you only read the title then I gently suggest you have no idea what the article says.

    Also it makes me wonder why did you respond at all?

    I don't care what the article says. I responded to this question....


    Are you not at all interested in how other parts of the world view the US.

    I assume it was a question. If you didn't want it answered, you should have said so.

    Doesn't Europe talking about our politics violate the Monroe Doctrine? Let's go stomp them!

    Why do you not have any interest in other parts of the world?

    I explained it. Re-read the posts. If you can't see my answer, then you obviously lack the cognitive skills to be able to hold an intelligent debate. Perhaps a remedial reading course will help ?

    I see you polite side is coming out. I was simply curious if you have any interest in Asia or Oceania ... it is pretty obvious you are not interested in Europe.

    Notice I said "other parts of the world."

    What are your interests outside of Blue Grass and church?

    Speaking of reading, what book or books are you currently reading?

    I read Nehemiah, just yesterday. Great book.

    Right now, I'm recovering from a pretty serious injury, so I have a lot of time on my hands.

    Asian countries are basically heathen countries, and I could not care less what they think of me. And I see nowhere in scripture telling me I should, in fact, I see scripture telling me NOT to worry about what others think of me.

    Why do you ignore so much scripture ? How is it you get creamed in EVERY discussion of biblical principles ? And not by just me. Why don't you care about what the Bible says ? Why do you add so much when it suits you, and ignore the parts you don't like ?

    Do you believe God punishes sin ?

    Seems to me that Christ's last command when he was on earth was to, "Go ye into all the world...." That means we have to be interested in the world and other cultures so when we go into the world we will have some idea of what we are doing. So who is ignoring scripture on going forth?

    Did God send Joseph forth?
    Did God send Moses forth?
    Did God send Paul forth?
    Did God send Peter forth?
    Did God send Thomas forth?

    I could go on, but you get my jest.

    Sorry to hear you have an injury. I hope you heal quickly.

    Where does it say "seek approval from heathen nations" ?


    Scripture says we will be HATED for his name. Maybe you want to be liked, but that isn't biblical.

    Scripture tells up to proclaim a name the world will hate. It is that simple. Every New Testament name you mentioned died a horrible death because of what they preached. How did the world view them ?

    Scripture does not say anything like what you say it does, and I'm not going to drag the HOLY Writ thru yer garbage heap anymore. You are free to worry about what folks think about you, because God gave you free will. But you can't tell me your view is the biblical one.

    Who said anything about seeking approval. Going forth to take Christ to the world is not seeking approval.


    Who said anything about being liked? I am talking about going forth, not entering a popularity contest, I am talking about Christ's command for us to go into the world and tell the world of him, or to work your area of expertest for Him.

    [size="3"Are you afriad to go forth to another country or culture? What is God calling you to do? What risk are you willing to take for Him?[/size]

    [quote]Scripture does not say anything like what you say it does, and I'm not going to drag the HOLY Writ thru yer garbage heap anymore. You are free to worry about what folks think about you, because God gave you free will. But you can't tell me your view is the biblical one.[/QUOTE]

    [SIZE="3"]Let's see if the Bible says we should stay or go ...

    “Go ye into all the world…”
    Mark 16:15

    While a healthy relationship with Jesus is the starting point, we are commanded to go. The Great Commission cannot be fulfilled without going forth.

    Matthew 4:19 Jesus said, “…Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

    Fishing for men is the outgrowth of a relationship with Jesus, following Him.

    II Corinthians 5:20 says, “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”

    An ambassador does not stay home, but goes forth to where he is sent, in this case where God sends us.

    Now you are putting words in my mouth. I never said we were to stay home. I guess if you'll put words into Christ's mouth, then you'll do it to anyone.

    I am done with you.

    Going forth is what the posts between us have been about. You responded to my comment about going forth in a very negative way. Are you afraid to go forth?

    The title of Crabby's thread calling President Bush a "frat boy" was enough to tell me that the article is not worth reading and just another slam job.
