I do think that Spain was greatly harmed by having an empire. The massive inflation due to all that silver and the heavy dependence of the Crown on the extraction of American resources instead of taxes on the local economy meant Spain remained one of the poorest regions of Europe, despite being in a privileged position to trade.
They can, and they probably will get a change in those regs (just for themselves, of course), but not even Google can make the FAA relax restrictions quickly, which is why they did a lot of their development and testing in other countries. Meanwhile for aerial mapping the Google fleet with human pilots works.
Do they mean it in a negative sense As in the comparatively high levels of violence, obesity, drug addiction, inequality, poverty, a poor education system, and everything else is due to slavery Or being the richest, most powerful, freest country in the world is due to slavery
B) You are a slave and your life will be unspeakably miserable, and so will be the lives of your next five generations of descendants, but after that they will be free. They will live in the most prosperous, orderly part of the world. They will still experience some persecution and injustice, but they will be in the top 5% in basically all measures of well-being.
Positioning himself as the athletic and capable young candidate in a field of women and old men could help mitigate this if it was done with any kind of subtlety. But openly bragging about being more physically fit than Hillary Clinton is just incredibly sad.
I suspect that this app is most liked by people who fear that the world is deteriorating because of human behavior, get very upset over hearing about the negative impact of the behavior of themselves and other people & are made to feel much better by supposedly offsetting that harm, so they can convince themselves that they are making a positive contribution to the world.
Large, heavy gate, designed to be operated by a human being, but sturdy and heavy enough that it can withstand a small army of angry villagers attempting to storm the castle with pitchforks and torches.
This reminds me that I love the Dinotopia picture books, but the amount of diversity James Gurney paints makes a negative amount of sense: the human population was introduced by Minoan (or earlier) shipwreck, new genes are only introduced the same way, and nobody is racist. Yet the small population is divided up into smaller groups (British, Yoruba, Tibetan, sundry unnamed diversities) that look like their ancestors never once mated.
Shocked as I was, I just realized more than ever that we are in the last days. I am a member of this church, and he is the LAST person I would have thought this would happen to. But he is HUMAN, as we all are - and he is subject to human errors of judgement and immoral acts, as we all are. Let him that is without sin, cast the first stone. My prayers are for his ability restore his spiritual walk with God, as he is gifted of God. But his actions were wrong. And moreso, my prayers are for his wife and children - who are in need of our constant prayers. My mother once said, \"Nothing happens all of a sudden.\" No doubt this has been an issue (in some capacity) for some time - and we sometimes fail in how we RESPOND to the issues in our lives. Of course, we hold the Man of God to a much higher standard, as he preaches and teaches us. But what we must do is PRAY for him, that he is able to walk blameless before God and man - as he, and his family, are often under great attack because of the Kingdom building work that they do. To the mistress, and there was one, I'm praying for you. While Pastor Paul may have engaged, this was unfair to his wife and children. We can't allow our selfishness, to overshadow the common courtesies in life. You have helped to bring down a man, a ministry and shatter a family. I just hope that everyone involved can be restored spritually. I still love Pastor Paul and his personal ministry. In the end, I guess I would have had more respect for him - if he's stood up amongst the 6000 members he preached to weekly and told us. Instead of having a letter read to the church by an Assoc. Pastor. But I understand that he must be ashamed, as would I be. And we all deal with things differently. He and his family are in my prayers. I hope they all heal from this soon with God's divine help!
Just another moral failure from \"Tiger Woods\" and company. My point is Tiger is no better or worse than Sheppard. This is why we must never judge others. Because \"ALL\" have sinned and \"DO CONTINUE TO SIN\", and Consistently Fall Short of God's Glory. I pray for Sheppard and for Tiger, but I wonder how many people feel like Sheppard (in his sin) is \"BETTER\" than Tiger ( in his sin). YOu see how weak and stupid humans are Thank God for His Savior who redeemed us from the \"curse of the law\"...
I've been a member of Abundant life for 2.3 years. It's truly a difficult situation for all but we need to pray to God to give us all strenght and rather than falling apart coming together as a community even stronger. It is easy to judge and humiliate than to take a step back and continue loving, caring and praying for our love ones. I love Pastor Paul, he has being gifted by our father to touch millions of people's heart through his ministry. Let's all pray for him and his family! This are difficult times and it's a sign that the devil it's getting busy trying to destroy the things and people that God touches.
I have not gone to Abundant Life in over a year, but I will never forget a service that Pastor Paul gave. I remember him talking about himself being a \"Man.\" A \"man of the flesh,\" and because of that he too can fall like any other man. I remember how he gave a service on King David and how God forgave him, because he was a man of his own heart. The reason why I am writing this is because Pastor Paul is of the flesh and we often forget that, because we hold him to a higher standard. All of us have fallen & all of us are sinners, so I pray that this lesson will not cause a break the church or take a great a toll on Pastor Paul's hard work. May God give him the wisdom to move on, and through God's grace forgive him. My prayers go out to Pastor Paul and to his family. God forgives and so should we!
I'm glad I'm an aetheist, and I'm glad I raised my highly successful and happy children without religion. There's too much hypocritical leadership, and too much opportunity to lead people astray. Too much holier-than-thou nonsense, too much insistence of I'm better than you...too much is too much! evildoer, I like your message, and I'm guessing you're not really evil. Neither am I. Maybe if people stopped being dependent on their church leaders to know right from wrong, there would be happier, emotionally healthier communities. And you know what else You'd have more money in your pocket and Sunday mornings to sleep in and enjoy your time off. Think about it. the herd mentality is downright scary.
Pastor Paul is a human. Plain and simple, he is not God, he is a man who has had a moral failure. None of us know what the moral failure was because did not tell us. So, I pray that everyone would stop speculating on what happened because we don't know. In God's eyes their is no BIG sin or little sin!!! It's just sin and it separates us from fellowship with God until we have repented. There is no man living today without sin so rather than talking noise about Pastor Paul....do what God commands us to do LOVE him without condition! And pray for him and his family during this tought period of time.
\"Moral Failure\" What ever happen Pastor Paul is human, we all make mistakes. I have tuned into 1100 AM @2:30pm for years, I would not miss his program. I tuned today and what do I hear not pastor, so I loged on the net and what do I see... The thing is he has touched so many lifes, he has changed many that may have been headed the wrong way. So now look something has come up and he has been tempted, he confessed his failure in the name of JESUS CHRIST, and he has told his wife. Pastor Paul has a higher calling ahead. (DON'T GIVE UP) live the life you preach about.
I am a member of ALCF. I am sorry that this has happened, however, Pastor Paul is cloaked in the same flesh as you and I. We often esteem our leaders as superhuman, but they are mortal. I possess no anger and I commend this man of God who realized that he must do as the Lord commanded. I believe that the Lord will perform a restoration that will open the eyes of men and women everywhere revealing His miraculous power. So many pastors are committing sin and mounting the pulpit each week, without guilt or fear. It is honorable for this man of God to realize the error of his ways and be subject to the Lord. I've not EVER seen this in all my days. Most are OUTED, but to come forth willingly is unheard of these days.My prayers are with my church, the Sheppards, and the congregation. I pray that the Lord seals the lips of those who would judge Pastor Paul. Man should be careful of what manner by which ye judge men; by that manner might ye also be judged. ALCF is a dynamic ministry and was established by a phenomenal leader through the Hands of An Almighty God!!!
I think you mean you welcome a conversation on religion, so long as religion cannot be criticized... which is of course not a conversation on religion at all (or at least a very one-sided one). Of course atheists and atheism are subject to your harsh and bitter criticism, and that is indeed an entertaining double-standard, which just goes to demonstrate the very hypocrisy in question.I'm not intolerant of religion or religionists. I am, however, rabidly and unapologetically intolerant of hypocrisy and hypocrites who presume to want to tell me how to live, judge me, criticize me, and level all kinds of unfounded accusations and lies about me, while writing themselves a free pass to behave in whatever deplorable ma
