Brother Mike I can't help but believe that when the trumpet sounds, the Lord Jesus Christ will come in flaming fire with all the holy angels, stopping time, separating the sheep from the goats, ushering to judgment, burning up the heavens and the earth with fire, and bringing in eternity. That's just as I see scripture, and there is nothing I can do about it.
Others believe otherwise - also from their understanding of scripture - and I will not refuse fellowship with any who are born from above, being children of God, blood washed and redeemed by Christ.
The all important thing is...... YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN..... .....and we will all agree on that.
The sad thing with both Sweden and Germany, which both have the same problem, is the absolute silence of the churches.
While the mainstream Lutheran Church in both countries, and the liberal bishops of Pope Francis' Catholic Church in Germany, would be expected to be silent on this matter, as they have bought into the liberal multiculturalism globalist agenda, it is shocking that truly evangelical churches in these countries have also remained silent.
It seems that there us a climate of fear, and no one wishes to upset the political correctness, or to be called a "Nazi", "Fascist", "reactionary", or "bigot".
The only objectors from what I can see to this wicked lawlessness, are some feminists who have had an attack of common sense, and who realise where this is going.
The Bible tells us that there will be lawlessness, in the last days. What is so sad is that Swedish and German women are indeed being betrayed by their own government and police, and worse by the Evangelical Churches, as this wickedness goes on.
There was a time in the UK when every schoolchild could recite the Lord's Prayer, because it was a part of the morning assembly, as was learning Psalm 23, and at least hearing some of the Bible read. God's elect benefited I'm sure from that sort of input over the years. "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God".
Jonathan Merritt wrote: A news story about Southern Baptists having a good olâ-fashioned fight is hardly surprising. The denomination seems to be swept up in an endless fight over all things theological, social and political. But this time, Baptists should beware. The denominationâs combative posture and partisan reputation has likely contributed to its shrinking membership and baptisms. Moore may be the best thing going for Southern Baptists, and marginalizing him will only exacerbate the denominationâs problems....
When some claim that Southern Baptists are partisan hacks, Moore finds a way to challenge the Republican establishment while holding the line on cornerstone conservative issues such as abortion and gay marriage.
Seriously if it weren't for the sad truth it'd be a joke, many will think they have salvation and neither Islam or CoE will lead them to Christ. A hypocritical organization educating a bunch of Christ haters. Bulldust

I'll indeed be praying. This sought of pseudo Christ worshipping needs confronting head on and without delay. May our Lord Jesus Christ give you immediate answer to our prayers will be what I'm pleading for.
Farrakhan has the spirit of antichrist and has used his serpent tongue to draw many blacks from churches; and yet some pastors still welcome him to speak in their pulpits primarily because (unfortunately) they agree with his racist agenda. Both the Nation of Islam and the Black Israelites preach sermons of hate which somehow strike a sympathetic chord with many in my community. The irony is that real Muslims don't take the Nation of Islam seriously and neither real Jews take the Black Israelites seriously; and they shouldn't.
I think its demonic and supernatural that Farrakhan remains as sharp and witty as when I first heard him speak decades ago. My advice is ignore his words but don't ignore the man; he is very dangerous.
The SA does give important information what's happening in India!
Cary Hardy wrote: The invitation system leads many to trust their eternal destination to confidence in a âconfessionâ even though they may openly live in rebellion to Him throughout their lives. In other words, their assurance is coming from an act on their part, rather than a genuine trust in the promises of God along with recognizing the Holy Spiritâs work of sanctification in their life. They can point to a date when they walked down an aisle, but they would be hard-pressed to point out proof of regeneration.
John, you keep making this about whether or not you are a member a non-Catholic church. Salvation has nothing to do with church membership. Nobody but you follows that rabbit trail. So please stop the false accusations. Plus you are making salvation to be a mere intellectual consent instead of supernatural work of God from above.
From the Catholic Bible (Psalm 119:104)
From thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false path.
Note the person born from above who grows from the milk and meat of the Word, hates every false path. But here is the fruit of your "salvation" you love the false paths of the RCC, you say they worship aright, you practice the same thing they do, (you say no I don't, but let us ask your priest and he would say you do). You even say a false prophet "praying" over the sick is the same as what is in James dealing with those who are part of the body of Christ.
Pretty sure most Catholics when asked, would tell you they are trusting Christ to get them to heaven. You have to pry to get a more definite response that would include sacramentalism and works.
Remember John, those whom God has saved, out of love for God and His truth, hate what God hates and would thus leave false churches that blaspheme His name.
