      It spoke tons about his morals, his decency, his true patriotism, and his dedication to doing what is right no matter what the cost might be. We had the privilege to have him be one of most beloved and respected Senators ever and he is and will be missed forever.

      That is what a great statesman is. A man of infinite integrity, a gentleman, a soldier. Someone who refuses to play dirty. Someone who is admired by even his deepest opponents. A man who will stand for the truth even if it costs him in the end. John McCain had the most beautiful funeral anyone could ever hope for. All these great men and women paying him tribute, no matter what side of the aisle they stood on. Trump will never have a funeral like that, because he's never done anything to earn it. John McCain was a patriot, a soldier, a gentleman, and an American hero. As his daughter Meghan said, "Today we mourn the passing of American greatness." "America does not need to be made great again, because America was ALWAYS GREAT," precisely because of men like John McCain. Rest in power, king.

      If you die tonight, do you know where you're going? Did you know that Jesus Christ is THE only way to Heaven and He loves you?
      Through Him, God offers you a FREE gift - forgiveness. All you need to do is repent, turn away from your sins and evil ways,
      from now on put your faith completely in Jesus Christ and be obedient to Him.
      Biblical explanation of the Gospel:
      God doesn’t want anybody in hell because He loves us, but you must understand why
      we deserve hell and why those who refuse to live under His authority will go
      there. (Matthew 12:30) ''Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not
      gather with me scatters.'' He gave us the law (Ten Commandments) not to make us righteous, but
      rather to show us our sin (Romans 3:20). God gave us free will and since Adam
      sinned in the garden, sin is the nature of our flesh and we ALL have sinned. (Romans 3:23)
      The law demands death to those who sin (Romans 6:23).
      Revelation 21:8 says that all liars will go to hell.
      For someone to be justified before holy God they have to be sinless, that's why everyone need Jesus Christ - for He lived a sinless life and resurrected.
      None of us are good in God’s eyes, because for God good means moral perfection. We all
      have broken God’s commandments, we all have sinned in our lives so none of us
      are good. ‘’For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is
      guilty of breaking all of it.’’ (James 2:10). Our carnal mind is hostile to God; it does not submit
      to God's moral law and it never will (Romans 8:7). We hate the thought of God for the same reason a criminal
      hates a policeman - we know we have sinned against God and are guilty of it, but we don't want to be damned.
      Good News is that Jesus Christ lived a perfect, holy, sinless life, Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
      He was buried and He was raised from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
      For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever
      believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.’’ (John 3:16)
      We aren’t saved based on our good deeds/works, but only by the grace of God through faith.
      ''For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -
      not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
      Jesus said ‘’it is finished’’ (John 19:30) just before He died on the cross, which means He paid the fine for our sins
      (past, present, future) to be forgiven if we repent and trust in Him.
      ''What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!'' (Romans 6:15)
      ''Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out'' (Acts 3:19)
      Repentance is a turning away from sin and all evil works, and it always results in changed behavior (Luke 3:8).
      Biblically, a person who repents does not continue willfully in sin.
      While sorrow from sin is not equivalent to repentance, it is certainly an element of scriptural repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10).
      Do not play a hypocrite. ''God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.
      If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.'' (1 John 1:5-6)
      If you have repented and have genuine faith in Jesus Christ then you will receive the gift of Holy Spirit and be born-again spiritually.
      (John 3:3) Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again."
      When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance
      until the redemption of those who are God’s possession - to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)
      You are born again with the Spirit of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
      Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. (John 3:36)
      ''You will know them by their fruits'' (Matthew 7)
      If you have been truly born-again with the Holy Spirit and He has regenerated your heart, you will desire righteousnes -
      to do what is good and righteous in God's eyes, to seek God everyday in His Word and prayer, to strengthen your relationship with God.
      You will no longer desire to willfully continue living in sin but will want to obey God out of your love for Him because of His amazing grace
      revealed to us through the death and resurrection of His Son.
      ''Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.'' (2 Corinthians 5:17)
      ''For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.'' (Eph 2:10)
      You will have a testimony - of what your life had been before and how has it changed now when you have surrendered it to Lord Jesus Christ.
      As a declaration and affirmation of your faith in Jesus Christ, get baptised in water because He commanded us to do so.
      In John 3:5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.''
      ''Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit'' (Matthew 28:19)
      ''Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.'' (Acts 2:41)
      ''And this water symbolizes the baptism that now saves you also - not the removal of dirt from the body,
      but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God - through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,'' (1 Peter 3:21)
      ''We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that,
      just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.'' (Romans 6:4)
      ''Having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God,
      who raised him from the dead.'' (Colossians 2:12)
      Please get right with God and start your relationship with Jesus Christ today before it’s too late, because there’s not much time left!
      "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.’’ (Mark 13:32)
      Get to know Christ through God's Word - Bible. At first I recommend reading Gospel of John and book of Romans. God bless you!
      Jeremiah 29:13 - ''You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.''

      you can see videos of McCain shutting down bigots and people saying things about his opponent Obama at his own rally - McCain was a man of tact, and it’s really telling if you look at the current GOP and Trump. This country has deteriorated because I realize now that those same bigots at McCain’s rallies saying ignorant things about Obama were waiting for a person like Trump to come along so they could feel recognized and have their hateful voices amplified.
      I hope we can return to a place in politics like this again, where you can have to ideologically different candidates who will still speak out against incorrect and hateful information about their opponent - not retweet it and stir the pot. it speaks volumes also that McCain wanted Obama to speak, and Trump to not be there

      @under the empty sky Seperation of church and state - you’re absolutely correct, it was one of the fundamental policies of the founding fathers if i recall.
      ... I’m not even American lol, some of your guys would do well to read up on your political history and what the people you look up to so much truly wanted for the country... DEFINITELY not this intolerant, angry bickering mob where both sides can barely stand to look at one another, never mind speak civilly.
      Didn’t even much mind Trump at the beginning, but on reflection I think it’s pretty obvious that his brash nature stirred put he worst in Americans, and turned the politics into angry shouting matches where interrupting your opponent to get a demeaning word in before they can finish their point means more than policies. It was kinda funny, maybe even refreshing at first, but... Honestly from the way people speak now, I worry that your country is constantly teetering on the verge of civil war, where people not only dislike the policies of their politicians, but their neighbours and fellow countrymen for disagreeing, and that’s just sad to me.

    Coming back after two years and I realize how great John really was. While Obama and McCain didn’t agree on some things, they both respected each other and didn’t want to spread false information about the other. I remember watching a video where McCain defended Obama for the good job that he would do and I just admired that. To see opponents not act like enemies was very uplifting and inspiring to me. Both are such honourable men. You are and will be missed, John McCain. ❤️

    In light of recent events I felt the need to watch this again and it is unbelievable how far many have fallen in the last 4 years. For republicans and democrats alike as well as citizens from all free nations worldwide, John McCain was the most courageous, genuine human being. A true warrior until the end. He will forever be held on the highest of pedestals for the man he was.

    What a privilige John Mc Cain bestowed on President Obama in asking him to deliver his eulogy. He could have asked anyone including from his own party or the military but he chose President Barak Obama someone who seemingly he had very little in common except of course genuine patriotism and huge integrity. That says it all.

    Listening to this from Kenya, another world-- I am in awe because of what we are able to learn from American politics. Indeed, I was in the US when McCain vied for his presidential bid. I saw it all. Now I am back in Kenya. I am grateful to God to be able to see this kind of unity during McCain's funeral. This ought to be emulated by all around the world. I love it.

    Watching former Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama speak at John McCain funeral is so inspiring, helps me remember when our Presidents displayed civility, decorum, class and grace. That all stopped when "it" became President . While I may not have agreed with all of their decisions, I always had respect for them regardless of their political party.

    I remember as a kid listening to John McCain's concession speach. When the crowd booed Obama, he told them that he would be his president too, and urged them all to respect him. That has left an impact on me to this day.

      I actually voted for McCain, what a different world. Both candidates were qualified and I actually thought "hey, this might actually not be so bad" when Obama won and not McCain, that's how qualified both were, either of them would've made an outstanding president.
      The class and dignity McCain had with him at all times is no longer present in the Republican party, that party hasn't been the same ever since he lost a lot of his political prominence. Now, it's a cesspool of open racist idiots who follow their little orange cult leader, it's why I'm never going back to red until I see the day that this generation of disgusting bigots departs.

    Hearing the words of President Obama again has led me to this realization. It is something I knew in my heart but did not know how to say until now.
    "When you stand up to bullies and defend the persecuted, when you come to aid of those who are suffering, you are in effect defending and coming to the aid of your country because that has been the goal of America since it was created."

    I didn’t always agree with Mr. McCain, but I always knew his allegiance was to our country and not his political party. I always admired how he would stand against his party when he thought they weren’t doing something right - no matter the political risk.
