    Appreciated the perspective you took on things today. My family is mixed racial relationships and the freakin election of all things is the straw that broke the camel’s back among us. “Casualties” are mounting over here.

    I think that was for the most part a great discussion. I’ve asked myself some of these questions many times. I think parts of some religions are against our rights as Americans like Sharia law, and therefore one answer might be to ban the practice of Sharia law here, and not allow it to be preached, but not ban the whole religion, since we pride ourselves on religious freedom. When Jim Jones wanted his tribe to commit suicide and many didn’t want to, they were forced to and obviously, if they hadn’t been out of the country and isolated, it maybe would have been stopped and should have been. So that is where I would draw a line. What any religion does can not be against our rights and laws, and if it is, it might be best to modify itself and assimilate. We can’t blow up abortion clinics, etc. I don’t think what is going on here now is a desire for a cultural cleansing by white people. Most people here enjoy diversity in California (with the exception of people in gangs who kill each other). Common sense dictates things like Sharia law are dangerous, etc. Having an illegal neighbor selling heroin brought across our borders to support himself and his family doesn’t work. Cartels operating here doesn’t work-I know too many people getting addicted to heroin which is rampant. I don’ consider myself a republican or democrat as I vote for who I think will do the best job. I voted for Trump this time which immediately fires up most people here in CA. and I become instantly their enemy – which is mean and really ridiculous. Obama deported people, as Trump will too. It is necessary for countries to do this when there are problems. Europe is having an epidemic of rapes, etc. from refugees. Places like Sweden are suffering big time from it. We do need to be careful and I agree both sides on these issues need to be listened to. People thought Obama was the anti-Christ and now people say similar and worse things about Trump – the American way. Let’s give Trump a chance. He will make mistakes -every president has. Try criticizing the leaders in say Russia and you may disappear forever. I am grateful for our freedoms.

  4. Baptism is a command from Jesus and we should obey it. It s a sign of our covenant relationship with God and a symbol of our new life in Christ. Am I right in assuming that Calvin himself never taught double predestination and this is a doctrine that was developed later on?
