Kev from San Diego: Ken Silva the over searer of the links I provided was a good defender of faith, as he did his home work, in researching out & exposing false teachings. With videos, & foot notes where he got his material from, that is one thing, I really liked about him. & really appreciated of his ministry work, that he had. He would take to Twitter & get into conversations with people like T.D. Jakes, who is false word of faith teacher. Brother Ken of the site & links provided, went to be with the Lord, a couple of years ago amen.
Hey Needhim great link decided to list a link from the link and a quote from the Vatican website where I got the quote!
3. The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth,(5) who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life...
Noble Bereans "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." Acts 17:11
As the Bereans faithfully examined the scriptures to ensure that the apostle Paul's message was based on truth, so must we search the scriptures as Christians today to prove that what is being taught is correct. As for God's omniscience, the attribute of being all knowing, every good Berean can start with just this handful of many scriptures declaring this to be so: Mat 11:27, John 10:15, 1 Cor 2:10-11, Isaiah 40:13-14, Job 21:22, Rom.11:33-34, 1 Cor. 2:16, Mat.10:30, Luke 12:7, Psalm 147:4, Isaiah 40:26, Deut.29:29, Job 37:15-16, Dan. 2:22, Mat. 24:36, Mark 13:32, Acts 1:7, 2 Cor. 12:2-4, Job 34:21, Job 24:23, Job 31:4, Psalm 33:13-15, Psalm 139:2-3, Jer. 23:24, Mat. 6:8, Luke 12:29-30, 1 Chron. 28:9, Psalm 44:20-21, Psalm 139:1-2, and 1 Peter 1:2.
Another good, eye opening peek into what Pastor Warren says, & allows inside of his own Church of Saddleback. Sadly many have said through either of ignorance or just plain self-deception of being lost & unregenerate.
As anyone who denies the Biblical Christ in Him alone is salvation found alone, based off His justifying merits , of His imputed righteousness alone. As He is God almighty in the flesh, & if we deny that, we have another god, through another Gospel message then amen.
Where or not Pastor Rick Warren is truly regenerate, is based off the Lord alone. As the scriptures clearly teaches one that spiritual adoption is an act of salvation being of the Lord alone. For their is no seekers outside of the true & only seeker, who came to seek & save which is lost apart from Him amen.
Some good research out material in this posted link provided, that gives an accurate account of what Rick Warren is about.
(TMC) @Mike Agreed! A piece of paper with ink on it cannot â€śmakeâ€ť you sin. Envy is produced by human hearts, and when you stop taking personal responsibility for such things and start blaming inanimate objects, where does it ever end? What is the logical difference between a Catalogue, a Store, and a Website? Must we go around blindfolded so our neighborâ€™s shiny new car wonâ€™t â€śmakeâ€ť us sin? The solution is much more simple- preach â€śall things whatsoever I have commanded youâ€ť, including that envy is a sin, and your congregation will be able to handle not only catalogues, but everyday life as well!
Frank, im sure you know more about Warren than I do, all I'm saying is that I would rather use my critism on ministers when they are teaching false doctrine. Maybe Warren does, what heresies has he proposed? I'm seriously asking. I don't know?
Wayfarer Pilgrim wrote: It's called electoral momentum. If more papers endorse Clinton then it will be her's to loose. But after tonight's debate, she'll slide back into the White House like she never left. Tonight's debate was the worst I have seen for a republican nominee. The first 20 minutes were ok, then all those years of whoremongering and living a life undisciplined showed up. The Trumptosaurus fell in a tar pit. Richard Nixon "checkers speech" was about his tax returns and gifts he received , and he was being audited. He's just lost the election, and aiming for a win he shot himself in the foot.
I respectfully disagree, WP. Hillary looked and sounded like a preprogrammed robot, with memorized lines. Same old same old. I don't think I'm in the minority thinking this. And the moderator bias was in plain sight.
Ah, UPS, I don't think Hilly was around i the 1880's, let alone in Old Testament times.
By the way, DT really stubbed his toe saying that Hilly started the birther issue, He said she made a remark on CNN--which CNN flately denied
The Australians perceived he lost the debate, which helped their stock market anyway.
You don't have to go to the Old Testament for this--
1 Timothy 1:8-11 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.---ESV
