    Jesus said “So it will be at the end of the age, the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire, in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 13:49-50. Jesus also said “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” John 15:14. Jesus taught that the only way to be saved is to choose him as your Lord and Master, repent and believe that he died for the sins of his people on the cross see John 14:6.

      @George Moncayo , Bart D. Ehrman clear states that there is NO God! Why you’re quoting Bart for your point doesn’t work!

      @burningfeet 57 yeah I know Ehrmans a fool but sometimes makes accurate statments on what I quoted but see It takes a lot of faith to be an atheist. Stephen Hawking said “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.” So, he thinks the law of gravity is nothing but actually that is something. Dr. John Lennox points out that that is self contradictory. Lennox says “If I say x creates y this presupposes the existence of x in the first place in order to bring y into existence. If I say x creates x, I presuppose the existence of x in order to account for the existence of x. To presuppose the existence of the universe, to account for it’s existence is logically incoherent.” It’s much more easier to believe Genesis 1:1 than to believe that sci fi nonsense. So, some Atheists have to redefine nothing to make it something so something can come from nothing. Also the complexity of DNA is proof for intelligent design. “DNA is so compact that a one square inch chip of DNA could encode the information in over seven billion Bible’s.” – The new answers book 2 p. 70. Bill Gates said “DNA is more advanced than any software ever created.” Here, the following are just some out of many scientists who are Biblical creationists, Dr. Jason Lisle has a PhD in astrophysics from the University of Colorado, Dr. Georgia Purdom holds a PhD in molecular genetics from The Ohio State University, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson holds a PhD in cell and developmental biology from Harvard University, Bodie Hodge has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Dr. Danny Faulkner holds an MS in Physics from Clemson University and an MA and PhD in Astronomy from Indiana University, Dr. Terry Mortenson holds a masters of divinity and a PhD in the history of geology. It’s not that science is against the the Bible, the darkened mind interprets the evidences for it through a naturalistic presupposition that doesn’t allow anything spiritual because God’s word says it’s because people love their sin and wanna suppress the truth Romans 1:18-32. Note, archaeology confirms the Bible, the Popular handbook of archaeology and the Bible” Page 181 says “Today nearly 100 Biblical figures, dozens of Biblical cities, over 60 historical details in the Gospel of John and 80 historical details in the book of Acts, among other things, have been confirmed as historical through archaeological and historical research. Moreover, the Israeli Antiquities Authority has over 100,000 artifacts [discovered in Israel since 1948] available on their data base.” Also it’s strange when Christians bring up the fine tuning argument which there is evidence, atheists have to make up the multi verse theory which there is no evidence, so they make up a theory with no evidence to try and refute a scientific fact of fine tuning, so at that point its the atheist who’s going by blind faith. Some atheists say they don’t believe in anything immaterial but the laws of logic are immaterial and it exists.

      George Moncayo …they’ve lied to you. Explain the greek bishops basil , Gregory and Gregory and the holy trinity. The council of Nycena….that gods name is only said once in the Bible? It’s literally a missmash of stories pared and changed to meet Rome’s needs. Explain pope Leo X…who famously said..” this myth of Christ has served us well”. 16th century. You feel you know your Bible but you only know what someone else has told you. Enlightenment is literally the search for truth. Revelations is finding the truth.

      @Laura Zaboraski Lol first it’s the council of nicea and we have quotes way before then showing the church believed in the Deity of Christ before nicea, nicea just reaffirmed what they already believed, no serious church historian believes they did anything with the canon and the whole thing that the BIble borrowed from pagan myth has been super refuted see the debate was Jesus a myth Dan barker v.s Dr. James White and no some of the church gatherers were persecuted for what they believed, they didn’t lie to give themselves persecution , some of the bishops at nicea lost limbs under persecution for what they believed, you are very ignorant of history but like I said it’s a Romans 1:18-32 issue with you , that’s what it all comes down to. Also there was no central control for manuscripts and so we have different streams of manuscript way before 325 so if it was changed we would be able to tell. You are laughable, you been listening to second hand bad in for by other morons.

  2. Just now heard about this holiday. HOW?!

  3. Shameful how Juneteenth is not in the history books in high school.

    • @310HZZA Political _’…where majority of them were black owned.’_ Revisionist fantasy on your part. There is evidence of a relative handful of black slave owners, there is ZERO evidence of wide scale ownership of plantations.

      _’During the Civil War 90% of the people fighting…’ And 90% of the German’s never participated in the atrocities at concentration camps, that didn’t make the German regime any less disgusting, or their defeat any less warranted. The same goes for the South.

      _’They had full Confederate units that were completely made up of black militias …’_ Nope. This is ‘Lost Cause’ fantasy to whitewash the South’s horrific past. And no, the words of a couple deluded twits belonging to the Sons of the Confederacy is not a valid source.

      @Josue Martinez I learned all of that in school, your school must have sucked.

    • @MAGA Luther King OK, let’s talk about Trump and the Central Park 5.
      How about Obama and birtherism?
      ‘Fine people on both sides’, when one of those sides are white supremacists?
      How about widespread voter suppression of minorities in the South by the GOP?

      How about the Court ruling against NC for voter suppression that stated: ‘the new provisions target
      African Americans with almost surgical precision’.
      Or how the GOP moving the polling station in Dodge City that served a primarily Hispanic community to a location *outside the city* , over a mile from the nearest public transportation.
      Please, by all means, let’s talk about more ‘current events’ .
      BTW- A Crime bill that passed over *two decades ago* is ‘current events’? You people are sad. Desperate and sad.

    • Rewriting history.

    • Wait until you find out the confederate generals decreed that the slaves would be free regardless the outcome of the civil war long before the emancipation proclamation

  4. “I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.”
    –Abraham Lincoln, April 4, 1864

    “This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.”
    –Abraham Lincoln, April 6, 1859

      I’m racist and I’ve voted Democrat all my life.. you silly joggers will never learn because your not able to

    • Let’s not forget the 3/5s slave vote that congress denied going into new states

      Or that democrats refused to put Lincoln’s name on their state ballots for president

      It was all political to these people, nothing more

      As for the lowly citizen, the Union army should have been tried for war crimes

      If you can’t create a complete sentence. How can I expect you to make a more accurate assessment of our country’s history better that I could??

    History books need to be revised to include all American History, not just selective parts of our history!

  7. “If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.”
    — Ulysses S. Grant

     “I felt like anything rather than rejoicing at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly, and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought, and one for which there was the least excuse,” 
    — Ulysses S. Grant

    “As soon as slavery fired upon the flag it was felt, we all felt, even those who did not object to slaves, that slavery must be destroyed. We felt that it was a stain to the Union that men should be bought and sold like cattle.”
    — Ulysses S. Grant

    • Make no mistake, the antifa mob will come after Grant too and tear down his legacy and statue. They’ll find something that they don’t like about him.

    • @Frances Wilson Wrong. They were the Dixiecrats and many still vote Democrat.

      Grant was a murderer, who allowed the union army to rape and murderer women and children.

    • @Jock Young you arent smart… duh

    • Grant was probably one of the worst Generals, and presidents, the U.S. ever had

      Surprising that Grant didn’t thank Lee for giving Him the CSA battle plans, that was the least of the help the turn coat Lee gave

  8. I am African Americans in high school and embarrassed that I didn’t know about this holiday till now 🥴😔😔

      They don’t teach us about segregation in school because then we would actually try to make things better.

    • Brotha Im just finding out and i been out of high school

    • @Leon I’ve ask several about this black and white and until they announced Trump was coming to Tulsa not a soul had heard of it. I’ve lived in Oklahoma my whole life and I’m knocking at door 50 and not once has the local news in Tulsa ever said a word about June 19th or Tulsa Massacre until all the protests started.

    Abraham Lincoln did not set the slaves free. Slaves learned how to read – and – that made them Constitutional American Citizens.

    the emancipation proclamation liberating the slaves in 1963.. it took 2 years for the democrats in the south to start enforcing the law. they liked their slaves and refused to let them go until…. 6-19-1865

      Joe Biden wants to repeal the 13th Amendment.

    • Emancipation proclamation didn’t happen on 1963 , the civil rights act happened in 1963 . very few democrats voted for it , but President Johnson took credit and said blacks will be voting democrat for the next 200 years , and they are stupid enough to do that.

      They still haven’t let em go

    • Wait until you learn slaves weren’t freed until the ratification of the 14 th amendment

      And who were the ones that blocked it

      Also, have you ever heard of the slave vote?

  13. It’s important because George Floyd wasn’t killed by a racist cop and the autopsy proved it but the commies didn’t like that answer so they kept having autopsies done until they found a Medical Examiner who would lie for them. Sooo very transparent. Get off the Democrat plantation. #WalkAway

    • You’re right… the autopsies showed it was the knee that was racist all along! The poor cop didn’t even see what his own knee was doing…. He’s the real victim here.

  14. LINCOLN NEVER WANTED THE SLAVES TO BE U.S. CITIZENS, HE WANTED TO SHIP THEM TO LIBERIA, LOOK IT UP!

    I see a lot of comments coming from African Americans who have now discovered Juneteenth… you actually should not be embarrassed… the media, including the black media have ignored this great tradition that begun in Texas… Juneteenth only left the state of Texas and starring expanding Nationwide in the 1990s…. before and then it was mainly a Texas holiday… if this holiday had begun in Harlem… the black press including Ebony magazine, Essence magazine, and Jet would have endlessly discussed it… but being from the south (Texas), it was completely ignored by all including the black media…. I’m from Texas and it is a very proud tradition here… the Juneteenth parade San Antonio attract 75,000 people… the Dallas parade attracts 125,000 people… the Juneteenth parade in Houston is close to 200,000… it is followed by beauty contests, a prom like dance, spoken word poetry, teachings on black history, lots of BBQs… very much like a family reunion… it’s mainly about black people loving THEMSELVES… it is clearly one of the greatest things about being black and in Texas…

    I hope CNN and all its employees are held at gun point for day by armed terrorists and have to call the police but they don’t show up because they are defunded or are to worried about being arrested themselves.
