Jim Elliot has two sermons on here, under the rare recordings, I don't know if Elizabeth Elliot is on SA or not, ligonier ministries might have some recordings of Elizabeth Elliot speaking at a conference or something like that.
" Why would you or anybody else in their right mind believe that atheists have morals since they deny the Ten Commandments?"
This is a good question, and it deserves a good answer, and here it is:
1. I believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired word of the living God, therefore when it speaks to man having a conscience, I believe it, and though he can sear his conscience with a hot iron, the Bible doesn't teach atheist do sear their conscience therefore can live a moral life.
2. I believe in logic, which goes against your doctrine that atheist can't have morals, I can observe atheist living what is commonly called a "good" life, therefore your idea, even by empirical science, is shown false.
3. Philosophically, man is bound to live by some morals, whether good or evil, we can at least agree with the idea of there being absolutes, if an atheist lived and said, "Rape is absolutely wrong" then he/she lives by at least one moral.
But honestly I don't think you want the truth, since this was answered before, I honestly believe you're storing up wrath till the day of judgment.

Once again, I want to thank you and Diane for your support which is very encouraging. I am amazed that feminism has been redefined by our culture and our churches. I agree that men are the most responsible. Women tend to be prone to manipulation and men simply took advantage of that for their own selfish and immoral reasons.
But the Lord is never confused and He sees our hearts and intentions completely.
I listened to the Conway interview. She never mentioned motherhood or submission to someone husbands and never mentioned having a gentle and quiet spirit and of course I could go on and on. And her kind, along with Trump's wife and daughters are now defining "conservative" feminism.
From the news: "The rite, requiring a stub of a candle, a pin, salt, matches, a tarot card, a feather and other odds and ends, calls on spirits to ensure President Trump will âfail utterly.â It also includes burning a picture of the commander in chief, visualizing him âblowing apart into dust or ash.â ..
Must be Trump is doing something right, if the witches are after him. They must think their voodoo doodoo has power over Christian prayers for those in authority.
Diane wrote: Frank wrote: Oh and a carnal man would have it no other way, so in my way of thinking they are the ones mostly responsible for this cultural change. Now their responsibilities are shared in an unhealthy way. I agree, Frank. The men are just as responsible and maybe more so for the cultural shift. Women can never really be happy when they rebel against God's design. I don't think women should be in any political office since we are ruled so much of the time by our emotions. I know how I am when I'm not in the Word of God.

Examine Ourselves This message is wonderful in so many ways! Examine ourselves to ensure we are truly saved. It's wonderful to have praying parents, but we must "each" be saved. We can't depend on our praying parents for our salvation. We can depend on praying parents to pray for us that we will be saved. The greatest blessing any child can have is parents who taught us about God and His Son Christ Jesus. Thank you Pastor Kidd.
B. McCausland wrote: Wherever biblical truth had its way the 4th command has been part of the code of ethics. Liberalism, worldliness and Neo Calvinistic tendencies chose to exclude this practice as obsolete by devices of private interpretation.
I don't know what private interpretation you are talking about. I have given Matthew Henry, John Gill and now John Calvin:
But some one will say, Â«We still keep up some observance of days.Â» I answer, that we do not by any means observe days, as though there were any sacredness in holidays, or as though it were not lawful to labor upon them, but that respect is paid to government and order - not to days. And this is what he immediately adds.
All on this verse:
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Of course I've also given you a very large in depth explanation of how the Sabbath is a picture of faith in Christ as per the inspired writings in The book of Hebrews.
Oh and a carnal man would have it no other way, so in my way of thinking they are the ones mostly responsible for this cultural change. Now their responsibilities are shared in an unhealthy way.

Retail business is tough these days in the world of online ordering, when even the US Postal Service works on Sundays to deliver packages for one company that also has their own white trucks doing deliveries, and plans on using drones next. Today's news is about J.C. Penney closing many of their stores, and some say Sears is next, that they will not last the rest of 2017.
I've been told some here believe the sda have left me scared, lol. I fear for the law bringers. You'll not break down the ignorance kev. Same people, same personas. They go into this long waffle of bulldust, to come full circle every time. Then they'll tell you that Paul wasn't talking the book of the law when he said to keep the whole law, and then they'll say that he didn't mean the Sabbath. And then say we just ain't as holy,or understanding as they're yet, and then blah blah blah. They deny the scriptures. Mark them, that was scripture says, playing
