    In what way do you think it has been edited? Looks like regular C-span video to me. The context appears to be the swearing in of Senators with their families. I don’t think it’s appropriate the way Biden strokes the little girls hair, whispers in their ears. puts his hands on them and pulls them closer when they try moving away.

    If it’s a problem with YouTube, then I hope you realize it’s also a problem with any visual media. I definitely think it’s important to be aware that we can’t believe everything we see online, TV, etc. Nevertheless, C-span footage is supposed to just be televised proceedings of the United States federal government and other public affairs by a satellite network/ cable television industry as a nonprofit public service. So I would expect such footage to be unedited and directly recording government proceedings.

    Yes... a picture at home tells it all of what happened at the Capitol! I think everyone who has a rifle or gun at home should be thrown in jail if they spent any time at Washington DC ! ??

    And should the police who were waving people in go to jail too? :rolleyes:

    More video shows police waving protesters into Capitol on Jan. 6

    THROW ALL OF THE CAPITOL POLICE INTO JAILS.... :D Well... maybe that is also a little too radical.

    I'm so good God more merciful (at least in my faith - other religions may have a different viewpoint)

    Yes.... we, mankind, sure have messed it up, haven't we? That is why we, as Christians, want call ourselves ambassadors to tell people about the God who is Love. (I mean real and mature Christians, of course)

    Since that website is highly hypocritical their condemnation of MBFC is actually a compliment. They claim not to distort the facts, butt the first article that I found of theirs did.

    You probably do not notice their hypocrisy and dishonest reporting because you agree with them. This article on abortion alone makes them lose their "we only present the facts" claim.:

    We could test that by asking someone who's Jewish, no?

    The first thing to note about the Trinity is that all five versions of Jesus in the NT ─ Paul's and each gospel's ─ not only never claim to be God but expressly deny they're God. (For example 1 Corinthians 8:6, Philippians 2:11, Mark 12:29-32, Matthew 20:23, Matthew 24:36, Luke 18:19, John 17:3, John 20:17.)

    The second thing to note about the Trinity doctrine is that not only is it incoherent, but that the churches admit it's incoherent, though the expression they use is "a mystery in the strict sense". A mystery in the strict sense "cannot be known by unaided human reason apart from revelation, and cannot be cogently demonstrated by reason once it has been revealed" ─ their words, not mine. If you unpack them you'll see that "a nonsense" would be a fine synonym.

    The problem with the Trinity doctrine is that in declaring "the one God exists as three persons and one substance" they also declare that each of the Father, Jesus and the Ghost is 100% of God, but the Father is not Jesus or the Ghost and Jesus is not the Ghost. 100%+100%+100%=300%= 3 gods, but the doctrine denies this, thus creating the incoherence. If Christianity were to say out loud that since the 4th century CE it's had three gods, there would be no such problem, of course. Meanwhile, when you pray to God, who answers the phone?

    A further question that arises is whether God has three wills. If the Father has his own will, and Jesus has his own will and the Ghost has his own will, how are differences between those wills resolved? Does the Father's will always prevail, for example, or can [he] be outvoted?

    Whereas if the triune God does not have three wills then [he] only has one will and there's no important sense in which [he]'s three persons.

    You conveniently left out the bit where you asked "so what goes on in private?". It seems you have at least insinuated that he is.

    Call yourself whatever you want. But don’t expect diplomatic immunity.

    Got any tips for picking out the real Christians? It gets a little confusing as I've had several different denominations tell me they were the only real Christians.

    That is a good question. I tend to leave that to God (in my faith). He knows the hearts of men.

    I like saying that we will have two surprises in Heaven.

    1) We will be surprised to see some people
    2) We will be surprised we didn't see some people.

    So I concentrate on working out my own salvation.
