Tea Party people are wide awake
I’m so thankful that we still have the right to freely express an opinion.
I disagree with the piece written by Bureau Chief Quinlan. She says … her quote “Tea Party people are just plain dumb.”
Tea Party people are wide awake, and aware of how political winds are tested! Also honest! Also smart!
Our president has already made his political decision to not make a decision till after the 2012 elections. How astute! He tested the winds.
(A Capitol Commentary, by Mary Kay Quinlan, Nov. 10, 2011, issue of the Wauneta Breeze: “And what if their views are just plain dumb, like those of placard-carrying Tea Party demonstrators earlier this year whose signs famously read: ‘Keep the government out of my Medicare’ ?’)
Faith vs. Works
Salvation is a free gift … Discipleship costs everything … There are many cults (some very bizarre) feigning religion!
But the essence of religion — how to get Peace with God — can be only one of two ways: the works of man OR the grace of God.
“Now to him that worketh not, but believeth on him, that justifieth the unGodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Romans 4:4-5.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: Romans 5:7A but God commendeth his love toward us; in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8, that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new, II Corinthians 5:17. Now if any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8:9C.
