"Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
This is one of the verses which describes Liberalism in operation amongst human beings. The point being produced here is that there are some sinners who will clean up evil/sin and push it into the community as 'good'.
Homosexuality is no longer a sin/abomination - It is good and simply the way some people are born. So they can now call this evil good and acceptable. Even some of the churches such as the Anglicans have fallen for this delusion of Satan.
Alternatively is the Christian doctrine that teaches the 'good' Bible fact that homosexuality is an abomination, a sin. This is called discrimination against the sodomite. Thus the good becomes evil.
Light becomes darkness by the cancer of Liberalism in society and church.
A must hear message for our times University campuses all over western world have Christian clubs, that like Ken Ham mentions are just fluff and substance, just playing games with God, and the same thing happens in Youth Groups all over, watching Disney movies instead of TheJesus Film. We all met those parents, tired from raising their kids, working long hours, so let's dump them kids into a youth group, or some camp, let them teach their kids, saying "this religion and science stuff ain't for me." Completely ignoring being a parent, Then they wonder why their family is so messed up.
From what I've heard, BJU is not an "excellent school" it seems to me like a money making business (at worse) or a really misguided college (at best) I've heard that they've still got Klan names on the doors (from years and years ago) the rules are legalistic, they've plays that are blasphemous, classes that have nothing to do with the Bible, etc.
Please show me where I'm wrong, Mr (or Mrs. Or Miss) ugh, your comment would mean I shouldn't trust what you said. I believe everything I've said is in accordance to reality, B. McCausland, where have I said wrong? I'm willing to listen.

Thanks mate and I agree. To many, like JohnY and it appears others below, the issue is really one of a political stance. So if someone is a conservative, they are praised for something. That is what our parrot does. Now what would he say about let's say Hillary or Obama quoting scripture which they have both done. My guess is they would not stand up for them as they would Melania.
Melanie was a model who publicly posed in the nude and I have never heard her repentance. Maybe I missed that. Maybe Paul White led her to the Lord also.
If anyone is interested in understanding more about what it means to use the Lord's name in vain, simply google "using the Lord's name in vain".
NPR wrote: The ruling means the Planned Parenthood clinics still open in Texas after years of other budget cuts by the state Legislature will still be eligible to receive Medicaid funds until the lawsuit has made its way through the courts.
The organization says about 75 percent of the more than $500 million it receives each year from the U.S. government comes from Medicaid, as we have reported:
"As NPR's Wade Goodwyn has reported, it is already against state and federal law for clinics that perform abortions to receive taxpayer dollars. Clinics that provide other health services ‚ÄĒ for example, HIV testing, cancer screenings and contraception ‚ÄĒ largely rely on those funds.
"Most Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas do not provide abortion services.

WFP, I have to agree with most of your comments Being an Independent Baptist I certainly take note what the SBC is doing and glad I with a church that isn't part of it.
The article I referenced is quite good, but I should have given a warning POTUS is not put into a positive light, so if you go to the article from the excerpts I used --not referring to POTUS of course you might see material you won't like since it was written before the election
Russell Moore wrote: For years, secular progressives have said that evangelical social action in America is not about religious conviction but all about power.

This year, a group of high-profile old-guard evangelicals has proven these critics right. But thank God, that‚Äôs not the whole story.

Since when is saying the Lord's Prayer taking the Lord's name in vain when Jesus is the one who said and gave the Lord's Prayer as it states in the Bible? And there is a man(who is the youth leader) at River of Life Church that I attend on Sunday mornings and he wears a Crucifix. Pastor Steve has not stated to him that it is idolatry to wear a Crucifix because it is not idolatry to wear a Crucifix. Today I met with Pastor Steve of River of Life Church to discuss my getting Baptized there. Pastor Steve asked if I had accepted Christ as my Savior. I stated that 20 years ago I accepted Christ as my Savior during an Altar Call. Pastor Steve then stated he would announce my forthcoming Baptism via immersion in the church bulletin so anybody else who wants to also be Baptized at the same time can be. The Baptism will be held at the nearby hotel in the indoor heated swimming pool after worship in a couple of Sunday's or so.
Well, she read from scripture. God's Word will not return void, but will accomplish what it is set out to do. Praise God His Word went out!!! As to her motives on reading it? I do not know. I do know that a Clinton administration would have not done this. May the Holy Spirit effectually apply the Holy Word and awaken hearts.
Important and Balanced Sermon on Worship music Thank you Pastor Hendrix for this balanced message. This topic is hotly debated and it should not be. Keeping the Regulative principle is a non negotiable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It is biblical and includes important historical examples.

Regardless what polictal stance you choose to stand by. Just like Jesus says, either You are for Him, or you are against Him, their is no myth of being Neutral towards Him, either one is born again, fighting the good fight, of faith, or one is still spiritually dead in the First Adam, still amen. http://www.barenakedislam.com/2016/10/28/hillarys-islamic-america-is-already-here-where-muslim-no-go-zones-are-popping-up-all-over-michiganistan/
Good comment and I agree. The politicians in those European countries will keep those things hidden otherwise it would cost them votes. I correspond with a Christian doctor in Germany and he tells me of the stealing, rape and grabbing women that takes place and is not prosecuted at all. I'm sure Sweden does the same.
Islam also teaches it is not wrong to lie to infidels, so they do that without hesitation. But, all practicing Muslim believe they must live under a caliphate. So, they lie to gain a foothold.
John Yurich USA wrote: Starnes is correct that it is despicable of the liberals to criticize the recitation of the Lord's Prayer by Trump's wife. Dave, Naturally Starnes is pro Trump administration since he is a conservative Republican.
Well John, I am one that criticized her citing the Lord's prayer because I felt it was using the Lord's name in vain.
If using the Lord's name in vain is the issue, then I am right and it is not a liberal or a conservative issue, but a spiritual one. My guess is you don't understand the difference.
ALL of the UK institutions including education are dominated by Liberalism. Government, Health, Justice, National church, Law and Police, moral standards, family concept with marriage, political ideologies, bureaucracy, local governments, ...... etc.etc.
So the universities which will plant Satan's ideologies into the next generation will definitely be used by Liberalism to restrain all freedoms of the people. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to disagree with Big Brother Liberalism.
The "Left" in the form of Liberalism now controls the heart and mind of Britain and rules with an iron stick. Beware the right wing minority your country no longer belongs to you or freedom of rights.
"Proverbs 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
The Liberalist governments of European nations will be on strict instructions from their Federal Liberalist Brussels Governing body (EU) to keep shtum about the errors of the EU policy in flooding Europe with muslim immigrants.
Big Brother Liberalism 'NEVER' makes mistakes. Anyone who says otherwise will be RE-Educated!!
