BYH to the one saying that Democrats don't believe in America's borders. Where do they get this stuff? I've never heard...

Biblical correctness

A comment on a letter in the Reflector on Dec. 26: In her letter, the author refers to Richard Rohr, a cultist who has renounced his Catholic faith and virtually all other Christian denominations in teaching the "dark side of Monotheism."

It is obvious from Rohr's writings that he refers to Christianity because Rohr doesn’t believe that Christ's death on the cross, Mark 8:34, Matt. 6:24 and Luke 9:23-27, was necessary for redemption. He also doesn't believe in God's condemnation of homosexuality, Lev. 18:22, 20;30, Rom. 26-27 and 1 Cor. 6:9.

Monotheism is a general term used to refer to those who believe in one God, rather than a multiplicity of deities. Even fence-post worshippers would fall into this category.

The Bible, on the other hand, teaches that we should "have no other Gods before us" but the God of the Bible, Ex. 20:3 and Deut. 5:7. It is this God who is the "father" of Christ who brings redemption through his death upon the cross.

This and all other things are taught to us by God the "father," Christ, his son, and also the Holy Spirit as spoken through the apostles, are "good for reproof and righteousness, that man be equipped for every good work."

Another correction I believe is in order. The writer refers to God as a she. That misnomer has been floating around by those who want to inject the political correctness madness into our society. The fact is that God is a male entity and is always referred to as "father" or "the father" in the New Testament, all the way from Matt. 5:16 to Rev. 3:21. It would do well to not forsake Biblical teachings for the teachings of men.

Awash in virtual ink and bitterly clinging to resentment from last autumn, Calvin Mercer continues to publish passive-aggressive missives railing against Greenville’s elected leadership. Appended to his most recent correspondence, a rehashed Daily Reflector letter addressing the “highly…

The Orange County Register got it right, and thank you Daily Reflector for including it in your Other Voices column.

“For too long, Congress has abdicated its constitutional obligations with respect to war powers.” Did you know the U.S. military is currently deployed and combat ready in…

My sincere thanks to the George H.W. Bush family for giving us all a chance to remember what America is all about. 

The patriatism, the integrity and the honesty was a refreshing reminder of what I value in my country. The kind, respectful and humorous words were a pleasure to hear.  

I…

Maybe I or the Reflector got this wrong: $20 million assigned for athletic deficit and facilities; $10 million of that from a $95 million ECU Physicians accrued fund balance. It is to be spent because attendance is down at athletic events and the athletes need a special place to eat. I hope I or…

Donald Bryson, Civitas Institute president, has it all wrong in his “Stop the government takeover of health care,” piece in The Daily Reflector on Nov. 29. Most of the world’s industrial countries whose health care systems are government run have healthier populations than the U.S.…

In this season of hope, love and renewal, someone representing us, America The Beautiful, tear-gassed a pregnant woman and her children at our border. Others were gassed too.

From the perspective of the agent, there might have been a provocation for the gassing. Perhaps he perceived a threat,…

Pipelines are far and away the safest way to move energy, far safer than alternative means. And the state could receive more than $2.5 billion in tax revenues from offshore leasing, per a recent analysis, in turn helping families.

Yet those who decry energy or cheer when a pipeline permit is…

Reasonable people differ. I learned the truth of this back in the day when I was a student at the finest law school in all of Washtenaw County. The late renowned Whitmore Gray taught it to us in our Contracts course. He also taught us to never indulge in ad hominem commentary pertaining to folks…

America has 23,648 military personnel in the proximity of the demilitarized zone in Korea. Why?

North Korea has not crashed our southern border. North Koreans are not throwing rocks and bottles at our border agents, many who are hispanic. They are not overwhelming our schools, hospitals and social…

I have been wanting to write this letter for some time. Just about every doctor in rural America that I have known practices psychiatry to some extent with their patients every day.

Unfortunately the only way to determine with any certainty that a patient is truly psychotic and therefore a danger…
