    If anyone knew it was idol worship, Paul would have known. The Gospels doesn’t state it.
    Paul did use the court system
    The link cannot be opened

    Scotty They worshiped many of their emperors as gods. Every Roman citizen had many family gods and idols. What else we call this except idol worship? Paul condemned the practice on many occasions

    I will agree Paul spoke out against out idol worship
    But he did say honor the rulers and Obey those just as Jesus said give tribute to whom tribute is do that doesn’t say they worship the emperor as an idol or as a god

    Paul lived during Nero. He said to respect the emperor but not to worship him

    That is what I am saying. Respect. Evidently the preaching of the Gospel was against the Roman law or Paul would have lost His life as he did.
    But People under Nero, didn’t think Paul was guilty of a crime and that is bore out in Acts.
    Actually Rome did crucify Jesus Christ. It was the Jews. Pilate could have stopped it, but he was a wimp. But it was all going to happen anyway.

    Against the Emperor too. On many occasions Paul wrote he is not subject of the Emperor but of King Jesus. As ambassador of heaven he rejected any claim that all human belong to the Emperor and should bow to him. It was the strongest political manifesto Paul ever made.

    Ryan did not give that advise – it was a deal that Trump made with the republicans so he can get the nomination – it was one of the conditions

    the other one was 2nd amendment republicans were fixing to lose
    the last one was the tax reform so they can try to bring jobs back to the US but cant happen
    the great scare is this one
    golden agers are not sure they will get their social security
    and are voting out of fear
    for another golden ager – Trump
    he reminds of them of their past and transgressions 🙂
    Pence promise fulfilled: US changes rules on the UN to help Christian …
    instead of helping Christians in Jerusalem and abroad perhaps help Christians in this country first?

    Maybe God wants to use the DACA to take His blessing back to the countries of origin of these young adults. We are told that we can’t send the DACA home because their countries of origin are so deplorable. But it is those very countries that need young people who have been exposed to the freedoms of America to return and be transformational community leaders. The Bible includes many stories of God using people that involuntarily went on mission for Him. Even the promise, and you will be my witnesses in Judea, in Samaria and in the uttermost parts of the earth didn’t come true until the Romans destroyed the temple in Jerusalem, scattering the church.

    hey Bob Wizenhut Current administration has figured out how to save billions for the budget. Cut off child tax credit ($1000 until now but some $2500 with IEC under the new TCJA) for children without social security. You do the math –
