    The "one Lord" in reference to Jesus being YHWH (1 Corinthians 8:6)

    Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' Mark 12:29-30 NKJV

    I sense a disturbance in the Farce

    Yes. The NYT led the push for the Russia-collusion hoax. They followed the gag order from the 51 former intel officials and refused to cover the Biden laptop that falsely claimed that the story was Russian disinformation. They have been strongly supporting Zelensky and NATO aid for Urkaine...

    I sense a disturbance in the Farce

    What does it mean when a veteran war monger is saying it time for a negotiated settlement?

    I sense a disturbance in the Farce

    Both Henry Kissinger and The New York Times editorial board are calling for a negotiated settlement in Ukraine even if it means giving up territory to Russia. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10847579/Henry-Kissinger-tells-global-elite-gathered-Davos-Ukraine-Russia-territory.html...

    Preaching from the apocrypha

    Yes, there are LXX books not included in the canon. On the other hand, the list includes the books that Greek-speaking Timothy studied as a child. These are the scriptures that Paul specifically praised. There is also early Christian literature that is not in the New Testament. Consider the...

    Preaching from the apocrypha

    The Council of Carthage was the first to recognize the current New Testament canon, and it also recognized the Old Testament canon derived from the LXX. The Old Testament books listed here are found in every Catholic and Orthodox bible. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Councils_of_Carthage

    John the Baptist was not Elijah

    Yes, none was greater than John the Baptist. That is what Jesus said according to Matthew. Right after meeting Elijah at the Transfiguration, Jesus had this message for the disciples:

    John the Baptist was not Elijah

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    Yes, there are a few independent journalists and news sources in the US and western countries. The same is true in Russia. The intel agencies don't care about a lot of things, and their interests generally align with those of the media oligarchs. They don't have to control every story. On...

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    India has good relations with both Russia and NATO countries, and it is still a member of the British Commonwealth. In Europe each country has its state-owned media, and even private media frequently receive government subsidies...

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    Yes, the vast majority of the world is not dominated by western media. For example, I find that reporting from India seems much more balanced. Perhaps that explains why that only NATO countries and a handful of western allies are supporting trade sanctions against Russia...

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    Yes, I am from the US, and my Slavic ancestors came from what is now Ukraine. I have had personal interest in the history of Ukraine and its neighbors. As far as state-controlled media, note that state-controlled does not necessarily mean state-owned. Here is a description of how that works...

    Fight to the last Ukrainian! What is General Budanov's cut for the $40 billion slush fund?

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    Yes, when 90+% of the western media is state-controlled and spouting propaganda from Washington, then anything that conflicts with the official narrative is immediately labeled "Russian propaganda". The reports can be entirely accurate, but they will still be labeled "Russian disinformation"...

    Ukraine Nazi Azov Batallion Surrenders Mariupol Steel Plant

    Yes, unlike most of corporate media, The New York Times did finally admit that the Biden laptop was real. It only took almost a year and half for them to reach that conclusion, which should have been obvious before the 2020 election. Yay NYT...
