    “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other” (Luke 18:10–14).

    Publicans are tax gatherers & enforcers, which have been traditionally been loathed & hated for their exploitations of the common people. Nothing has changed for thousands of years.

    You say GIMMERs hate cops... I say Cops should be performing law enforcement for the community, not collecting revenues via quasi taxation. If the Cops want & seek respect, their job descriptions & duties must be returned to law enforcement & crime prevention.... instead of revenue collectors for the hidden bond holders!

    So, back to the story of the Pharisee and the publican. The Pharisee's prayer revealed a prideful boastful man who was full of himself and felt superior to others. The publican, knowing he was a flawed sinner, instead sought mercy. My interpretation of the story is that Christ would prefer the man who prayed for forgiveness and looked for ways to improve his behavior. What did I miss?

    I would love to be able to respect all aspects of policing, but I have seen its dark side.

    From locking people up for victimless crimes, to throwing people into the system out of spite, to speed traps and stoping adults for jaywalking, that shit ain't cool and it's a significant part of what they do.

    *head hits tabel* "Ough!" What is it about this that no one understands?

    We have a Jew
    We have a non Jew

    The Jew has religious law
    The non Jew is just praying

    Point: they both prayed for forgiveness yet one is supposedly better than the other or liked better, or.....whatever. So what is the difference between them? The difference is "you" are the judge, remember the point of both of their prayers was for forgiveness. The only discriminating circumstances is the prayers. No previous life exposition, no nothing. So God don't see you till you talk to him and at that point you are judged. And, yeah with a little help from the whild child you are fucked or saved.

    Remember Jesus is telling this story so they are not praying to him, they are praying to God. You can fill in the rest of the blanks.

    “Two men went up into the temple to pray;" = The 2 men were BOTH Jews. Non-Jews did NOT go into the temple to pray. Yes, there were Jewish publicans to collect taxes among the Jews. Matthew, as in Gospel of Matthew, was a Jew who was also a publican.

    The Pharisee followed "the law" to a tee and therefore thought himself to be justified as if God is some sort of vending machine. The Pharisee put his "good works" in the slot and expected to be seen as a righteous man as if justification and righteousness is some sort of transactional thing. God does look on the heart. Moreover NO flesh is justified by the works of the law. Yes, Mr. Pharisee "looks" as righteous as an Eagle Scout but God is not fooled, neither is He amused

    The publican, also a Jew, the chosen of God just like the Pharisee, was humble before God realizing that he is a man and knowing that NO flesh is justified by the works of the law and therefore NOT being justified he was NOT made righteous by the works of the law(See: Romans 3:20, 3:24/Gal. 3:11/ Romans 10:9,10), he simply recognized his condition in the sight of God and asked for mercy (the withholding of just judgment).

    As to "GIM cop haters" I have NO clue who this refers to. I have seen no evidence of anyone hating cops. I, for one, hate what some cops do. I hate that cops are the equivalent of modern day Roman soldiers. I hate that cops exist to serve and to protect the interests and persons of the state governments. I hate that cops are called heroes for simply doing their jobs. I hate that cops are unaccountable for their actions. I hate that cops are made a class of "super citizen". I hate that because of these things the natural cause and effect of such stupidity by the government cowards that cops are now the targets I've warned about for years now.

    Obviously I can't and wouldn't dare to speak for anyone else here but I'll repeat it again, I see no evidence of anyone at GIM being cop-haters.

    The hate from the left is astounding. They hate with a vengeful twist that comes off as threatening. I don't like being threatened...but that just me. I'm a radical racist bastard. Does that make me a bad person?

    Everyone deserves a fair trial, but the system has repeatedly demonstrated an unjust bias towards the new centurians who enforce the laws and provide physical security for the luminaries of said "legal system."

    If I know that the system is rigged, and the LEOs knowingly work for the rigged system, then those same LEOs should not be surprised that others who know this, and who perceive that they have been screwed by that same system, may seek retribution against that system.

    The LEOs on the street are the ambassadors of the legal system, and thus they are targeted.

    a cop was being interviewed, and one of his comments was quite telling...........we don't have the manpower to fight crime, do the bidding of lawyers, be the babysitters ie domestics, etc.

    paraphrased and not a quote for sure.

    point is, and it was a valid point, we are asking the cops to do far too much for the position.

    -they are handling rogue punks in schools
    -they are responding to thefts/burglaries/all the above
    -they are responding to fender benders/accidents/deaths/all the above
    -they are responsible to chase bears out of towns
    -they are responsible to serve papers on the populace as the humans look to screw each other in every imaginable way
    -they are to serve papers from the corporate overlords of both .gov and .bus
    -they are being asked to testify in courts
    -they are being asked to appear at all 'fire' calls
    -they are supposed to chase the drug dealers again and again as they walk repeatedly or are readily replaced
    -

    you get the picture, the list of duties continues to grow that they are encumbered with.

    couple this with the degradation of society, and the shitty work environment, and it is a wonder there are any good cops at all.

    They have to sit in construction zones because no one has the time to do 45 for a few miles while their updating their fake book status.
    They have to go after the trucking industry because none of the flip flop wearing, English is a second language new breed of truckers can do a proper pre trip.
    Etc...


    I'm not a cop pom pom shaker and I've ran into more than a few dicks in my life (including MP's) but I would not want to deal with chicago without the CPD out on patrol.

    Oh boy, let's take the aspects of religion out of this and ...., .... And say they were paying tax's. They were there to pay their tax and they paid their tax so any endemic pretentiousness or lack there of is superfluous.

    So then why the story and these two picked as main characters?
    Does this mean Jesus was a bit of a gossip?
    Is this a blatant violation of God-man confidentiality?

    Yes Alton this little glimpse of master decision making shows a whole bunch of things and not all of them flattering, all one has to do is rip the prayer out of it and insert something else then question if this representation holds true to life. And, if not why; and, if so why?

    From about the 1930's to sometime in 70's community policing was the name of the game. Shoot, some police didn't even carry weapons it was so cordial. The worst you might get would be a wooden shampoo. I'm not including localized spots such as gangster Chicago and mob areas.

    Just a guess here, but in the 70's something changed - Heroin.
    People lost it.
    Big money.
    Weapons.
    Police responded in kind. No more hand shaking.
    Human nature takes hold.
    The drug dealers are rich so we can be also.

    That's what DOT is for.

    Cops don't know what to look for in an inspection or know how to read a log book, and they shouldn't. Their focus should be keeping the peace.

    Maybe this is on reason why no one cares about police being shot...

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ls-family-dog-AR-15-boy-s-birthday-party.html

    Outrage as Oklahoma cop uses AR-15 to shoot dead family dog that was behind a fence during boy's fifth birthday party - after turning up at the WRONG address to serve a warrant
    • Vickie Malone said her son Eli and his fellow birthday party guests had just gone inside for cake on Saturday when they heard a loud bang
    • They looked out the window and saw three-year-old American Bulldog Pit Bull mix Opie lying on the ground bleeding
    • Family said a Wynnewood police officer shot and killed Opie with a high-powered rifled
    • The officer initially said the dog tried to attack him through the fence but did not offer any other reason for the shooting, family said
    • Police chief said dog charged the officer and that the shooting was justified

    1) I did not initiate the comparison using a biblical passage
    2) I merely clarified the passage for proper understanding of it
    3) you are free to believe whatever the hell you want...so am I
    4) I despise religion (see: Pharisee in passage in thread)
    5) Jesus, the Christ nor his Father, God, ever started a religion. Religion comes from the mind and heart of humans with encouragement from the god of this world.
    6) Gossip?!? God-man confidentiality!?! Has your hatred of religion turned into a hatred of God that you feel so free to pull false doctrines and lies out of your ass to obfuscate clarity of understanding His word and works? Really dude, you might want to clear your heart or get back on your meds.

    That cop should be hanged IF all that was described in that article is true. Unfortunately this type of thing being captured and shown on the net is escalating bitterness and hate for the police from people who otherwise wouldn't think that way. If they don't police themselves they're going to feel the pain of people's anger and it will be their own fault
