What Did These Reporters Mean When They Said

What did it mean when she said that?

I am in my 20s, I have an older mother like fogure in my life who is extremly special to me, she is my best friend regardless of our hige age difference as she is in her late 50s. We talk every single day and have the most special bond.

Well today I went to get an ultra sound and found out that i might have cancer. When my best feiend called, she asked how it went and I told her that they found something and it is most likely cancerous the doctor said. She said this on thr phone: “I don’t believe that, you are too young... I have to stay positive” .. she then went on to say that everything was going to be okay and that we can beat it together. But what did she mean by that sentence?
I didn’t quite understand what she meant

What Did Jesus Mean When HE SAID "Upon THIS ROCK I Will Build MY CHURCH & The Gates of HELL Shall Not Prevail Against It"?

The Greek word translated as "Peter" means a small stone or a pebble. Hardly something suitable for a foundation.

It would not be much better than "the sand" upon which the foolish man built his house on in Matthew 7:24-27, and that house fell.

Also, most Greek words also have a gender. Not surprising, since the word in Matthew 16 is translated as a man's name, the word is masculine.

The church was founded on a solid foundation like "the rock" upon which the wise man built his house. That house stood strong, even in the face of storms.

In Matthew 16:18, the verse you asked about, the Greek word translated as "rock" is feminine, therefore it could not refer to Peter, because he was a man.

Also, instead of meaning a pebble, this word meant a large mass of connected rock. This would make a very solid foundation.

So, what was his solid foundation?

It must have been the truth of the confession that Peter had just made, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16)

There is nothing more solid than the identity and authority of Jesus Christ!

On this foundation, Jesus said He would build His church, and he told Peter that he would be given the keys to the kingdom.

Here, the words "church" and "kingdom" are used interchangeably. Other passages also show the church is the kingdom.

Until Pentecost the church and the kingdom are spoken of as being in the future, but after that point, both the kingdom and the church are spoken of as a present reality.

Indeed, Peter did have the keys to the kingdom and he unlocked that door in the last part of Acts 2 when he taught them how they could be "added to the church". Here we see the entrance into the church by the first converts.

In Matthew 16:18, Jesus said, "I will build my church" and in Acts 2:47 "The Lord added to the church those who were being saved."

Colossians 1:13 says, God "rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son."

At this point the church (kingdom) that Jesus promised in Matthew 16 was a reality.

You can not be "added to" or "transferred" into something if it did not yet exist.

What did the guys of Tears for Fears mean when they said “There’s a room where the light won’t find you, holding hands while the walls come tumbling down, when they do I’ll be right behind you”? I’m failing to understand the metaphor.Like most TFF songs you need to look at this in context. The album, Songs from the Big Chair, deals with political activism, anti-nuclear campaigning and Janov’s Primal Scream therapy - all of which is typified in the song Shout.EWTRTW was originally Everybody Wants to go to War but was changed after the suggestion from Chris Hughes, the album’s producer, thought it should be more positive and convinced writer Roland Orzabal to change it. It’s about the way that people lust power and control.The particular line here deals with failure. There’s a room where the light won’t find you is a metaphor for not being discovered. It’s not a physical room but figurative term to being secretive and undiscovered. The light is a metaphor for being seen and public. So Roland Orzabal is saying that he and his friend/partner can live out of the glare of publicity and/or scrutiny. Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down is a metaphor for staying together through disaster. It’s you and me against the world. Even though everything goes wrong they can stay together and support each other and no one else needs know.The song is a dark one about power, lust, and the destructive nature that these can have. The lines highlighted deal with surviving that.

Orwell wrote about propaganda, distortions and outright fabrications of facts in regard to ALL politics and political parties.In the worst cases, such as the world of 1984, The Nazi’s, Fascists, the former Soviet Union, people can be conditioned to accept even outlandish statements as being true, without question. In theory, the people become so malleable that if told that it is true, they will believe 2+2=5, and dissident opinion, like in North Korea, is forbidden under penalty of death.So “Freedom is the freedom to say that 2+2=4” means being able to speak the truth without fear of reprisal.Genuine Socialist Progressivism, and its principle tenet of “Tolerance,” is essential to democracy, for in a true democracy, there are potentially as many opinions as there are people. While you don’t have to agree with them, tolerance means you still respect them as fellow human beings. That way rather then animosity, it’s easier for people to get together and work on solving the common problems we all face.This stands in stark contrast with the attitude of many modern “progressives,” who can only see the world in terms of Us vs. Them.

What do reporters say after they're done saying the news?

They say whatever they're told to say. Each station/network has it's preferred method of sign-off:

"Reporting for Eyewitness News, I'm __."
"This is __, reporting for __."
"Name, ABC News."

etc.

What did Obama/Biden mean when they said these quotes?

What they said and what they meant are two different things when your a habitual liar. Something to remember. I have a yahoo! answer! that will solve all of your yahoo! Poly-Tics Answers! problems. Go unplug your noise box in your living room. Turn the nob to off on your noise box in your car, and enjoy the sweet sound of intelligent silence. See, kids, your brain is like a computer, if you fill it with junk like spyware, malware, crapware, and viruses, it starts to run slower, and slower, and slower, pretty soon, you dont even want to boot it up. Unfortunately, there is no disk defrager in our brains, and we cant simply delete unwanted information. So, we must be extra cautious about the amount of B.S we fill our tender head-meat with. Trust me, there is nothing to worry about, these guys are going to collapse this country no matter what you do, so give up.

Heres a test, dont use the tv or radio at all for two weeks, then go back to it. Half of you wont, and you will thank me for freeing you from the beast.

To the other half of you, your in luck! See, I know that your 60,000 dollars in debt, and you watch american idol every night, and when you go to bed you just wonder how the hell everything is going to work out. Well, I have a solution for you! See, when a computer gets too far gone for software maitainance, you use what is called a kill-disk. So, use your kill disk! ( i.e. suicide )

What do people mean when they say the Founding Fathers were Deists?

The Founders were Deist in their actions.

Thomas Paine wrote 'Common Sense' and is very much one of the Founders.

Neither Washington, Jefferson, Madison, or Franklin would allow 'Jesus' or 'Christianity' in their Constitution or government in any way. In fact, the Senate was in session on Christmas until well into the nineteenth century.

Deists don't allow smarmy mythological beliefs or matters of religious canon to affect any part of their lives. The Founders were polite to Christianity and Christians, but made it clear that religion, to them, was a source of strife and wars. Foreign diplomacy clearly was geared toward no favoritism for any country based on religious affiliation; keep in mind that Morocco was the first country to recognize the new US, and diplomatic relations were established right away.

Jefferson cut most of the text out of the bible as nonsense. That doesn't mean that he held the remainder in high religious regard. It simply means that he tolerated the balance as at least not ridiculous.

It’s not a song by Abba, but from the 1960s musical, Hair.The Age of Aquarius hasn’t actually started. It is about another 504 years away.Back in the 60s there was a huge amount of social change, and at one point there were a bunch of planets located in the tropical zodiac sign of Aquarius.And more commonly in those days, Aquarius was said to be governed by Uranus, the planet most associated with “revolution.”These days more astrologers go with Saturn as ruler of Aquarius - the planet traditionally associated with that sign for thousands of years.An Age in this context is the constellation (sidereal zodiac, not tropical) the rises with the Sun at the Vernal Equinox around March 21.Currently, I understand this to be about 7 degrees Pisces. Precession goes back through the signs at around 72 years per 1 degree. So we have 7 degrees x 72 years = 504 years.We are still in the Age of Pisces, the symbolism of the fish connected to Christianity.

What did these people mean when they said "don't even try" when I tried to talk or write with proper grammar?

Stop trolling.
