Re: In Courts of Human Law

It sure does, and for the simple reason that Trump appointed Gorsuch. Otherwise we’d see more wonderful things like legalised abortion and same sex marriage forced on all 50 states.

Re: horrible earthly things

Of particular note is the Trump used to be pro abortion (back when he was a notorious playboy) but changed his position a decade ago - and not for political reasons.

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

I’m still having trouble seeing how anyone who promotes abortion (like past Democratic presidents) can be seen as moral or ethical even if they do say polite things and aren’t caught using foul language. Of course, past presidents were no different than Trump. LBJ was exceedingly foul and JFK was a ...

Re: Trump: A MennoNet Poll

I have certain questions about the "ethical norms" of people who think, for example, that abortion is OK. Who exactly decides what is ethical?

Re: Bishop Oversight

Holdemans eliminated the traditional office of bishop and also discarded the term, and they simply ordain ministers and deacons now. They aim to make a minister meet the qualifications of an “elder” or “bishop”. Deacons and ministers are accountable to their own congregations in the sense a congrega...

Re: Recently attended an EPMC Bible School AMA

To be fair to those leaving, Eastern has been suffering for a while under top-down authority; specifically, some bishops have decided to use Internet in their businesses without their congregation first affirming limited business Internet use. I don’t fault the membership at all for deciding they wa...

Re: Recently attended an EPMC Bible School AMA

The other big talk at the Bible School was about the group that was pulling out of Eastern. Several of us wanted to visit the meeting for the Application Mountain Church, but all of our our requests for leaving the campus for the meetings were denied. There was a small minority who transferred thei...

Re: Recently attended an EPMC Bible School AMA

is volleyball out at Eastern? Not totally. Just its considered more of a school or family game. They do not want to encourage a "play mentality" among their youth. I've known of youth excommunicated for playing volleyball in a non-family setting. My understanding is the issue was that the...

Re: Museum of the Bible

A few more notes on the visit. We went on a Thursday morning and had no trouble booking the tickets two days before. The museum was not crowded at all. During the week appears to be an excellent time to visit. I will also say that the employees of the museum were very friendly and helpful. We got t...
