          No, it doesn’t look like she did. I tried to spot her in the righthand screen by keeping an eye on Trump’s shining blond head. Let’s stay close to the truth in our enthusiasm. But on the other hand, both of them led by going to an inclusive prayer service and being interested, and that is more important than who was first on their feet.

          CNN deliberately delayed the left-hand video to imply that Melania and the rest of the Presidential party were “LATE” to recognize Marlana, when in fact Melania was the FIRST person in the church to stand and applaud.

          Watch the Presidential row carefully (in the distance of the right-hand split) and note when Melania stands – a FULL 5 SECONDS before the left-hand split shows her stand.

          CNN went so far as to DISHONER this HANDICAPPED SINGER by CROPPING HER OUT of the right-hand split to prevent us from recognizing when the performance visually ended, which would have made it obvious that the left-hand split applause was delayed for 5 seconds.

          CNN KNEW that the viewer would key in on the moment when large numbers stood up in close-to-the-camera proximity within the right-hand split, and that Melania’s image was so distantly small in a dark dress as to be indiscernible when she stood up.

          CNN is the most Anti-American, Anti-Religious, Mysogenistically Vindictive network imaginable!

          Message to Fox News: Cover this dishonesty in your Sunday Shows and set your network apart from CNN FAKE NEWS!

          Personal Bet: Fox News will join in the cover-up and prove themselves to be as FAKE as CNN.

          She reminds me of Fanny Crosby, one of the greatest Hymn writers of all time.
          A history article on Christianity Today has a profile of Fanny Crosby:
          (http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/people/poets/fanny-crosby.html )

          “Oh, what a happy soul I am, / although I cannot see! / I am resolved that in this world / Contented I will be.”
          Francis Jane Crosby wrote more than 9,000 hymns, some of which are among the most popular in every Christian denomination. She wrote so many that she was forced to use pen names lest the hymnals be filled with her name above all others. And, for most people, the most remarkable thing about her was that she had done so in spite of her blindness.
          “I think it is a great pity that the Master did not give you sight when he showered so many other gifts upon you,” remarked one well-meaning preacher.
          Fanny Crosby responded at once, as she had heard such comments before. “Do you know that if at birth I had been able to make one petition, it would have been that I was born blind?” said the poet, who had been able to see only for her first six weeks of life. “Because when I get to heaven, the first face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior.”

          Acts 28:26-27 says:

          26 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
          27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

          This young lady, like Fanny Crosby, cannot see, yet sees (ths opposite of those people mentioned above). Sue Thomas (who was depicted in Sue Thomas, F.B.Eye) cannot hear, yet she hears the word of GOD.

          Also Acts 20:29:

          29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

But then, the true body of Christ’s church is not a building but of the repentant faithful covered by the blood of the Son of Man who is sovereign and can approach and petition the throne of the Father in praise and adoration with holy intent. No fear.

            Most important being the letters to the seven churches in Revelation. We need to humbly pray over tham and consider them. The Church of Laodicea could well represent our “comfortable” society of today;

            Revelation 3:14-22:

            14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

            15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

            16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

            17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

            18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

            19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

            20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

            21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

        People, being human and imperfect, have their own thoughts, interpretations, and ways of doing things. There are lots of doctrinal differences even among Christian churches. For example, a fellow Christian told me that when she used to attend an Episcopalian church (if I remember right), that particular church didn’t believe that Jesus was God. That is just one example.

        It can be a minefield out there. You can always go back to the simple faith of the Bible and your early experience. Sometimes you have to tune out all the noise and strife, which I have found to be spiritually damaging.

        ptezmom — I was born and reared an Episcopalian, but in the 70’s, the Episcopal Church (in my opinion) became not a Church but a liberal political entity. To me, it no longer was the Episcopal Church. A bunch of us left and became the Anglican Catholic Church which kept the old High Church Episcopal services. Our services are beautiful (to me) and I know the mass by heart.

        So when someone on this board says it is not a Church s/he would consider, I take it that s/he is talking about the ECUSA as a political party that holds opposing views to him/her.

        I have attended the Secular Episcopal Church a few times since I left 40 years ago and it is now as unfamiliar to me as would be a mosque or a synagogue. I do not belong there.

          Something some folks may not know is that the Episcopal Church of America was the original church of the Founding Fathers. Most government figures were associated with that church. It has long since changed and essentially is almost a secular church, no offense to anyone intended. One reason why the presidential folks and other dignitary services are held at the National Cathedral, is because it considered to be the more “neutral” of churches – meaning the Episcopal Church.

        Petzmom – you have the Bible, the Holy Spirit, and should have a supportive community. For most of us, the community is a church plus our Bible study class, plus others we meet in other church activities. You can study the Bible to test whether principles and practices of the church line up with the Bible.

        After that, don’t worry too much. It merely is a matter of living a life in which you acknowledge that there is a God, and that we know a lot about God by lessons and principles that have been recorded for us for this purpose, that you are imperfect but are forgiven, and like any great parent, your Father wants only the best for you.
        -Most people that break with Christianity break because individuals or a community are insensitive, or are unloving at some point. Sorry – we are all just flawed humans.
        If you cannot tolerate a church, just move on to the next church.
        The differences and skirmishes between denominations grow less relevant if you are regularly living a life of prayer and Bible reading.

            The difference, petszmom, is this – all the other world religions require you to do something – perform an act, achieve this goal, do this for this reason. With Christianity, there is only only One thing required – Faith. Not, “Just Breathe…” but, “Just Believe.” That is the difference. All the rest is just noise. If one has Faith, all the rest comes natural.

            Actually, the SDA church has been regarded as a Christian faith for several decades now. The major SDA points differing from other Christian denominations’ teachings are on the Sabbath and diet reform – and neither of these have ever been refuted using the Bible and the Bible alone. All the other major tenets of faith – the Trinity, salvation by faith alone in Jesus, His vicarious sacrifice, living the life of Christian obedience and temperance – are all there.

            The Bible is where the SDA denomination gets their teachings….including their stance on the issues of prophecy, both pertaining to the gift as well as how it is used and interpreted.

            Yes, there is a very large body of misinformation out there concerning the SDA church and Mrs. White. Ferreting out the truth to both, however, requires a willingness to engage the truth honestly, a willingness to address one’s own prejudices concerning what is truth (and what is not), and having the courage to make the decisions to change one’s mind once the truth is known.

            Unfortunately, all of these are currently in very short supply in many faith circles in the present day. It is much easier to stick with innuendos and throwing stones at that which one does not understand.

            Just like in politics.

    I’ve been thinking about the amount of prayers during the inauguration today. It reminds me of the phrase “Nature abhors a vacuum.” This phrase is often interpreted to mean that “evil loves a vacuum.” You could substitute “Radical Islam” for “evil” in this instance. Looking back, I think that the intention of the Libs/Dems/Progs originally was to get Christ out of government and everywhere else they could in order to prepare for a society that would be dependent on the government and not God. Not only that, but people were willing to die for “God and Country.” My theory is that when you take away God, there is less will to fight – especially against the government that is stealing your country and your freedoms and rights. The Lib/Dem/Prog cabal moved too slow after they created the Godless, lawless situation and Radical Islam, in the form of Obama stole the vacuum. My theory – call me insane if you like, but I suspect this is why Trump is going full tilt on bringing back God and Christianity.

    I am curious to find an accurate translation of President Trump National Prayer Service: Imam Mohamed Magid Muslim Call to Prayer
    Recent experience suggests what this imam stated in plain English did not in any way correspond with the Arabic. If confirmed, it should be brought to President Trump’s attention and this imam – any imam should be prohibited from further attempts at interfaith deception.

    Lovely Service except for the Imam. We must continue to pray for the First Lady and the First Family. Satan will attack the President thru his family just as much as thru his political adversaries.

    Glad to hear the loud applause from the CIA during President Trump’s speech to the rank and file today. He’s got their back. Should be interesting what they get done now that they can MAGA.

      Did I hear somebody say radical islamic terrorists will be eradicated from the earth?
      Sounds like a plan to me and long overdue.

    One can only hope that the ‘multi faith’ service will fade away under DT. Or at least use a venue other than a Church.
