Jim Lincoln wrote: They are all good Catholics, if they follow, The Five Precepts of the Romish Church. They can be quite opposite in the views on what makes a good Catholic, but the authoritarian nature of the religion they were raised in, makes them irrational in their approach to Christianity. in reality they are really at two ends of a horse shoe that almost touches, so much closer to each other than actual rational Christians who would be represented by the middle part of the shoe. In other words radicals of the left and right theology have more in common with each other than with rational fundamentalists.
Standard distraction. The thing that those who look might see is this: The 4 dissenters from the Supreme Court's awful "same sex marriage" decision, those who opposed it, are Catholics.
The Country's Been in Moral Decline Before We can call out to the Lord our God to change the hearts of this nation's citizens. The Holy Spirit can most definitely move across this land and bring change. I pray that it is the Lord's will to produce another great awakening.
Michael, I see nothing to disagree about there q.v., listen to The Roman Road
Higley Piggly, I don't think you're going to have to worry about blasphemy laws in Minnesota at least, they'll probably copy there Scandinavian brethern in Iceland. Iceland makes blasphemy legal. I see the Roman Catholic and Pentecostal churches are unhappy about that.
To Prayer, Christians! This staff-picked part and the other parts of a 4 part teaching on great awakenings have very good information. God the Holy Spirit caused changes in the land when the people of God began to earnestly pray.
1517,I just heard about a sodomite couple seeking divorce. This is of no surprise,at all...you probably saw it coming down the pike too. As far as employment and housing...easy enough to work around. For instance,where I live,the policy is simply that if 2 people are married,they can apply using just one application but if they are not married then they each have to pay for an application. Just because one acknowledges what a state does in regards to business,does not mean that one is compromising. How many people have been living together in apartments and rental properties before the onslaught of the homosexual agenda? Besides that,how many sodomites have been living together "uncommitted" at such? Things really haven't changed all that much.We just have sodomites calling their commitments "marriage". We have been accepting that "white is black" and "black is white" in this country for a very long time...except where it matters least as far as melanin...then we're all over what is "black" and what is "white". But when it comes to what is truth,we have been quite tolerant.
Yes,Christopher. I might ask what world she's been living in. So...Sharpton,Jackson and the rest haven't taken the spotlight to respond? Maybe they're on vacation. May the Lord prepare this woman's heart so that she may know Him and then be able to discern who the true enemies are.
Pastor Jon wrote: It was actually over earlier than that (Genesis 3)
I agree with that statement. I listened to a sermon lately on the fruits of the Spirit and the works of the flesh that were opposed discussed. Bitterness a root of which defiles many was described and confronted from Scripture. This led my thoughts in a conversation with a neighbor on a point brought up by the article. Psychotherapy wants you to dig up offenses, Scripture would have you forgive and forget as you remember that we are all fallen creatures and if forgiven by God we forgive others their lesser offenses.
I read the article and comments. The article spoke of the Protestant version of original sin being pessimistic and the comments of marriage as a sacrament; there seemed to be a strong twist of Rome in thought. A number of the commenters had returned to Rome from evangelical churches.
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me . . . Psalm 51
Why don't the Jews teach OS? Because this verse is not teaching OS. David's mother is the object of the statement and the sinner, not David. This is a figurative prayer of repentance, not an excuse.
If original sin is true, the child is born into darkness. But . . . That was the true light that LIGHTETH EVERY MAN that cometh into the world. John 1:9. For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee: for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139.
You are born innocent with a moral conscience. Sin conceives in the human soul here: James 1: 14. You are not born reprobate, you become reprobate through a progression of evil here: Romans 1. This leads into the slavery and bondage of sin here: Romans 7. But you were alive once (born innocent) v 9, and set free here John 8: 34.
Sin is transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4. A baby has not transgressed the law and cannot be a sinner, so original sin is a provable lie. Original sin turns man into a victim. Original sin is Roman Catholic dogma and the most BLASPHEMOUS LIE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, and that is why society is pagan and why this ultimate doctrine of devils must end. Now
So, The SATANIC~VATICAN "JESU-ISIS-ITS" Are Historically At It AGAIN; ala THEIR CENTURIES-OLD "CONVERT OR DIE" Routine !
Except NOW They're Using THE VATICAN'S Late-3rd-Century MOHAMMEDAN-"ISLAMIC" DEMON-POSSESSED-RELIGION -And- THE "JESUIT'S" RECREATED-CALIFATE, ***ISIS***, To Do IT !
My KURDISH Friend, HYET, At The TURKISH Cafe I Frequent On Lawrence Ave. Near Rockwell St. In Chicago's LINCOLN-SQUARE Neighborhood; Told Me HE KNEW ALL ALONG THE VATICAN "JESUITS" WERE THE "RELIGIOUS"-DEVILS BEHIND THE "RELIGIOUS"-DEMONS-/-EVIL Called ***ISIS*** !
AS ***ISIS*** IS INDEED THE SATANIC~VATICAN "JESUIT'S" CREATION IN THE MIDDLE-EAST; WHOSE ULTIMATE DIABOLICAL GOAL IS TO GET CONTROL OF THE "ETERNAL" CITY OF JERUSALEM FROM *ISRAELI* &-OR "MUSLIM" HANDS INTO THE BLOODY HANDS OF THE SATANIC~VATICAN'S ROMAN-"CATHOLIC" CULTIC RELIGION:
WHEREBY THE "POPE" WILL SET UP A STATUE-IDOL-IMAGE OF "JESUS CHRIST" (BASED ON THE SHROUD OF TURIN ?) IN THE MIDST OF THE REBUILT JEWISH TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM; AND THROUGH SATANIC "JESUIT" SORCERY CAUSE THE IMAGE-IDOL-STATUE OF "CHRIST" (REALLY *ANTI-CHRIST*) TO SPEAK & CAUSE THAT AS MANY AS WILL NOT ***WORSHIP*** THE STATUE-IDOL-IMAGE & RECEIVE THE MARK-NAME-NUMBER OF THE-BEAST-/-THE-"POPE"-/-THE-666-(www) SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH Via ***ISIS*** !
The article states:"Faith McDonnell, director of religious liberty programs and of the Church Alliance for a New Sudan at the Washington D.C.-based Institute on Religion & Democracy, told The Christian Post on Thursday that Sudan's constitution states that the immoral dress law does not apply to Christians, since they are not expected to follow Shariah law."
This statement can only be true of arbitrary laws of men's construction. It seems to imply that in a democracy there can be different laws for different people. It also seemed to imply two extremes as the choice tyranny or chaos; when the whole of the Divine Law, viewed through the lens of the Gospel of peace is removed from the gov. In regard to dress it would seem that it should begin with the fathers, in this case and if that breaks down related to divisions of religious thought in household the Ministry should back up the head of household.
I once attended a RB Church that on occasion in the summer would remind the men of their responsibility to God and man, as related to their duty of helping their brethren not to be stumbled in the worship of God. They were exhorted not to the detail of the matter but to do unto others what they'd want done to themselves, in leading their households into the house of God.
The libraryâs policy states: âReligious groups may use the libraryâs meeting rooms for administrative purposes but shall not be allowed use for the sake of proselytizing â¦ or otherwise influencing people to a particular belief or point of view.â ...
So it's okay for their books to influence others into crime, the black arts like wicca, and sin in general, that is, unbelief, persuading others that there is no God. Makes sense to the ungodly, who reckon anything goes because there is no God, only imaginary gods like they have in Egypt.
So why are they continually saying OMG?
Methinks they know deep down, they just don't want to give up their sins and submit themselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
There, but for the grace of God was I also, until he came in with his everlasting love, his powerful conviction of sins, his enlightenment of my lost estate and bound for eternal hell, the loveliness and worthiness of Christ, the sensibleness of following a resurrected Saviour, a powerful call which could not be refused, a humbling before God which could not be shrugged off, a quickening which could not be prevented......
.......all of which I praise God for, being glad that he turned me around and changed my will that I wanted to be a Christian.

Ha! Made I chuckle, Christopher. But alas, I never could sit crosslegged. How 'bout you?
Great Sermon! This is the way God saved me. Since I would not accept the new forms of salvation in my area I am an outcast. I found nothing good in myself deserving God's gift and even today I find nothing that deserves His salvation. I will never compromise. My Lord will soon be coming to deliver His own but the professors are having too much fun. Lord Jesus come quickly. Amen
I'm not sure why everyone took offense at the comment? I make it a purposeful thing to encourage men that I know personally in leadership, and to speak well of men generally, because I get tired of the attitude some (not most) women have.... and anyway, just as life comes from Eve, our lives also come from Adam.
At the same time, I've seen a malaise come over the evang church. as a child, church people were the most informed on issues and seemed to have a biblical understanding of it. over time, I've seen a new "theology" come to the land and men stopped going to city council meetings etc. and the feminazis moved in to all the spots they declined. it is common here in fact for theologues to come on that do not know, and in fact refuse to involve themselves in the issues of the day. an example would be Brother Hovind, who is languishing in solitary, as last we've heard, even though charges have been dropped, his friends concerned he may not make it to his mid July exit from prison. I haven't seen the men of God back him up. Now Brother Hovind was a good berean and knew the times, saw the whole picture and taught the scriptures without shame. He has led hundreds to Christ. Two causes of the commnst feminist movement.... 1-federalization, 2-apathy of Christians.
