So, I will admit there is a lot of commercialism there and I will also agree that I think that the state of Kentucky was correct and not giving him the funding. So the site did not camouflage Christianity that much. Before I was interrupted on my previous message, due to technical difficulties, I would say if all your arguments were correct though, they supported the secular nature of his organization and if he didn't have the restriction on hiring, then he should qualify for the state aid
Ah, my previous comment didn't make it up, so now my second comment is now my original comment.

True. A law might be passed declaring an apple to be an orange, but it wouldn't thereby be an orange.
get real, your comments are thought provoking. I haven't looked on his site so I don't know how hard it is to find an evangelical statement on his site. you do know that you sort of made a case for him

just more proof that ken ham is money hungry and will not suffer like the rest of the true christians ...
"All we see today are money-hungry Christians with their so-called ministries. I was viewing Ken Ham's Answers In Genesis website today. He has a store, but doesn't share the Gospel. According to Charity Navigator, Ken Ham gets paid a 6-digit salary and Answers In Genesis (AIG) took in over $22,000,000 in revenues in 2010. They advertise all sorts of things you can purchase, but the plan of salvation is nowhere to be found. There's some sermons by Spurgeon buried under education/sermons. I sincerely doubt if an unsaved person is going to go searching through a Spurgeon sermon on how to be saved. The good news of Jesus Christ crucified and risen ought to be upfront, clearly visible for all to see. Ken Ham puts his store upfront."
How about collectively revolting against and abolishing/disbanding the Arian movement, the KKK, gangsta rap, the Black Panthers, Louis Farrakhan, and the like? Seems like an enormous, collective effort to ban an inanimate flag while leaving the more tangible, destructive things/people do what they do.
"Would a cake maker of the muslim faith be sued in the same way that these christians are being sued?"
Um, nope. Muslim businesses have refused the same exact services, with some even posting refusal of service signs on exterior door/windows and it might receive a two sentence blurb on page 23 of a local paper. Only the Christians, born again Christians, that.is, are under attack. Others can repeat what Christians get sued over without mention, public outcry, or repercussion of any sort.
Monsters. Between these people and Boko Haram, I wonder how many men, women, and children they have raped, tortured, and slaughtered for their dark pleasure. I try to put myself in their place and imagine the utter terror they feel as they are being beaten and know they are going to die. I imagine them having a sliver of hope and wishing they would see troops appear over the horizon to rescue them, but nobody ever comes.
"We provide it to investors after cleaning it, sterilising it and giving it the blessings of religious men."
I drank some years ago and it cured my depression but now I have have an extra leg that grew out of my lower back. The leg is fully functional and I use it to do party tricks. Ok, anyway, it's amazing what people will but, especially after reading that much of it is diluted due to being in suposed short supply. Also, how reliable is a mere label when many are probably getting tap or toilet water? "Holy water"? "Blessed by religious men" What a joke.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this outstanding sermon, so faithfully preached.
This was broadcast 6 years ago, yet even more relevant today, for we see the mounting apostacy and aggression against christians growing every day.
Need to send this out.
Thank you Pastor Lawson.

Boy, I'm not usually a fan of statistics because I just think they are notoriously unreliable and inaccurate because of how most of the results are arrived at. In this case though, even if the numbers are off, by any amount really, it's alarming because the number should always be a static, reliable, never wavering 100% and just reinforces the fact that the word Christian has many meanings these days, and is more of an umbrella term. Only 66% of practicing "Christians" are not in favor of same s*x marraige as well as 2% of evangelicals. Even that 2% figure is alarming because of the true number it represents. These numbers should be 100% across the board.
Great Sermon! Pastor Cooley, it doesnt get anymore real than this! Never give up please always abide in the power of the Lord he will sustain you because these people out here need you. I have been listening to your sermons now for 2 years every single one, some multiple times and the power of God is in the word truly. It brings me to my knees when i thinm of how merciful our God is to have faith now to see and ears to hear we can watch his work manifest in the world. God bless you all and i cant thank you enough.
Yes, God judgement is finally coming upon this nation and its leaders say,"bring it on, God" as they mockingly use His rainbow to voice their approval, to all sodomites, the world over. God? God who? "Oh, that guy, well, he's not real", or, "He has changed with the times". Anyway, I know I'll sound like a broken record here, but it still shocks me every day how fast and furiously this country has/is falling and the kicker is that it all centers around the mocking of God's laws by defiantly doing just the opposite of what He has commanded and warned against. Sodom and Gomorrah has been resurrected in the US as its leaders and courts laugh at God as they polute the minds of the next generation and strike their gavels to usher in the new age.
Great Sermon! Tremendous message to forsake the worlds offerings and face Christ and His finished work. Great to hear you again after many years. We have always enjoyed your preaching. May the Lord richly bless you and your beautiful family there in Calgary....
