A drum beat of dumb-beat lies followed. Barry Soetoro's initials were too clear-thus-AKA Obama: "Obama, though, who famously ridiculed and demonized Christians for bitterly clinging to their guns and religion, appears to be uninterested in facts. Indeed, despite having to brazenly twist the truth to launch attacks on the constitutionally protected rights he swore to uphold, Obama vowed to keep hammering away until Americans agree to surrender their liberties. ‚ÄúAnd each time this happens I'm going to bring this up,‚ÄĚ he pledged after proudly boasting that he was politicizing a tragedy. ‚ÄúEach time this happens I am going to say that we can actually do something about it, but we're going to have to change our laws.‚ÄĚ It was not immediately clear how Obama thought changing laws would prevent somebody willing to violate laws against murder from violating gun-control schemes. But he vowed to keep politicizing tragedies until Americans submit to his agenda anyway. It IS a good bet that those stupid enough to RE-elect this monster would stupidly listen to his foolishness.
In a stunning display of audacity, Obama even called on God to give Americans the ‚Äústrength‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúcourage‚ÄĚ to accept ‚Äúchange‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ specifically, more unconstitutional violations of their God-given rights.

If you find it necessary to compare and consider America with the primitive third world muslim nations then .....???
I had thought that you were a nation more modern, educated and even caring than that.
Do y'all care about the protection of school kids???
A constitutional right to murder and slaughter is a "law?" too far. Get rid of it.
Some facts. = Restricting the millions of guns and rifles in your society can only have a good effect, especially for school kids. = Maintaining the availability of guns and rifles places a mind set on the American psyche of "right to kill" rather than right to play cowboys at the weekend. = Blaming other reasons eg mental health is mitigating slaughter and massacre not providing "good?" reason for arming everybody. = Civilisation proves with regular monotony today that availability to large numbers of people of assault rifles and machine guns is recipe for disaster. = That disaster is exemplified in the massacre of school children. = You really really need to think of and protect the Sandy Hooks and the Roseburgs of YOUR community rather than legalise the potential to kill maim and murder.

Good morning Penny, and yes, I think I know what you're referring to.
Firstly, I will say that the BGEA so obviously believe that the gospel must be taken to the whole world, because that is God's normal way of saving sinners. In this, they have been very successful, probably more than any other evangelistic association. I have no problem believing that there will be a multitude in heaven who were converted at those crusades.
But did he say something about sinners being saved who had never heard the gospel, yet God saved them and brought them safe to heaven? Was that it?
A lot depends on what he meant. If he meant that God's elect would be saved, even without hearing the gospel, in places where the gospel was forbidden, say, in countries like North Korea, then yes, I would agree with that. I believe that God can save whoever and wherever, he can have mercy on whom he will have mercy.
Is there a biblical example of someone being saved and filled with the Spirit without hearing the gospel? Sure......
its not sustaining itself. been my point. most churches are being sustained through support of our older generation who have investments from a bygone era. They have benefitted from inflated stock market numbers, and they tend to be the ones that influence the pastors.
So you have churches that are devoid of reality still (as unimaginable as this is) preaching a prosperity gospel, and they send their money and concern to other nations where the "real problems are". the reality in my generation has been a constant flowing in of illegal people taking our men's jobs, and then industry sent to china and mexico. we are like a huge dysfunctional family over here on this side of the pond.
joblessness among americans I would even label it as catastrophic at this point.
then you add the healthcare regulations that penalize companies for full time workers, so many jobs now are only offered part time.
then add to that, the wealthy elderly will then blame young women for having to work while their men are out of work, or sub-pay, and churches become a place where the working class are harassed by out of touch pastors.
Seen my share of working class men come in, take it awhile and get out of dodge.
Great Sermon! I resonated/deeply appreciate these words from A.W. Pink...and your added message for us all. A.W. P., J.C. Ryle, C. Spurgeon...they are treasures to the true faith and by God's grace alone - the faithful.

There Christian Research Network associate editor Erin Benziger of Do Not Be Surprised‚Ä¶ told us that:
Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church perhaps may be best known for his Blessed Life sermon series and accompanying book. His message from this series is quite popular among attractional, seeker-driven pastors. Why? Because the core of this message is that one must tithe to one‚Äôs church in order for God to be able to bless him.
Of course, mega church pastors thrive on this type of message, which is largely driven from a misuse of Malachi 3:10. Morris has preached at such venues as Saddleback Church, and has taken his Blessed Life series to Perry Noble‚Äôs Newspring Church as well. Indeed, his influence can be seen among many of our favorite mega church pastors.
In days to come, I‚Äôll more fully document Morris‚Äô increasing influence within Seeker Driven circles. However, you should know that just this past Sunday Robert Morris held court at the megachurch of prophet-leader Steven Furtick,1 a two-time Elephant Room vet. His mentor Perry Noble filled in at Morris‚Äô Gateway Church " Thx!

I didn't read the article either but there is a lot of evidence showing that continual exposure to evolution & other anti-Christ concepts does lead kids away from church. Anti-social? Well, maybe anti-socialism but we're not anti-social! Studies also show homeschooled kids are better adjusted & more able to work in an environment with a wide range of age groups than their traditional schooled peers. They didn't need to be punched in the nose by a bully in the playground to grow up well!
Responding to Obama's shameless exploitation of massacred Christians to push assaults on gun rights, the non-profit Gun Owners of America instead demanded an end to existing infringements on the right to keep and bear arms that demonstrably contribute to mass shootings. ‚ÄúThis is a very tragic day, and all Americans are mourning with the residents of Oregon,‚ÄĚ said GOA Director of Communications Erich Pratt. ‚ÄúBut we find it offensive to hear the White House use a tragedy like this, and instantly turn it into a political opportunity. The President spoke to the nation today, saying it‚Äôs proper for him to politicize this tragedy. He called for more ‚Äėcommon sense‚Äô gun control, which is insane, given that the criminally-minded don't obey the law.‚ÄĚ Pointing to Obama's listing of previous massacres in his latest speech ‚ÄĒ all of which occurred in ‚Äúgun-free zones,‚ÄĚ or victim-disarmament zones, as critics call them ‚ÄĒ Pratt said enough was enough. ‚ÄúMr. President, you just identified the problem,‚ÄĚ he explained. ‚ÄúEvery public mass shooting since 1950, except for two, has occurred in a Gun Free Zone. This shooting is no different. And that is why GOA agrees with the 86% of police who say that these types of incidents would be "... STOPPED if we ignored BHO's stupid ideas!
People like TD Jakes have a different gospel,you deny the Trinity & embrace Oneness teaching of the Godhead,that isn't a good thing at all ever.Mr Jakes has no problems in promoting women pastors,allowing them to take his puplit & preach,like Paula White.As we will know them by their fruits & their theology is out of wack that places one outsided of Biblical Orthodoxy.
Not everyone writing stuff are trying to be mean spirited they love truth & the importance of it,as if one is wrong with certain doctrine stances they take.It's heaven & hell issues of being wrong.So sharing truth in love is important for one if they love Christ & His Word & His people amen.
Mat7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15 ‚ÄúBeware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep‚Äôs clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Eph5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them, 12 for it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light, for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
I agree with what Allie posted and put it exactly as I have said also. Who would benefit most when we get our eyes on her instead of the issue at hand. Christians are slowly losing their freedoms. It is muddling ( B.McCauseland's word) the issues and causing confusion( satan's tool) to keep the proverbial frog sitting in the comfortable pot as the heat is slowly being turned up and he is boiled to death. That's what's happening as of now to America.
I see it so clearly, just as you both have said. Satan, is aware that his time is growing shorter and because he hates God, he also hates His children. He sends his own to harass, bring down all that he can with whatever means he can use. It's happening every where and more frequently. Keep fighting the good fight, being light and salt and blooming where ever God plants us in this world that is so dark. Light illumnates, and when you have lived in the dark so long and a light is turned on, it can hurt your eyes, seeing the cobwebs and dirt you have been living with, the sins being revealed by the Holy Spirit can be either life changing by coming to Christ to help you clean up the mess in your life or you want to turn the light out and continue on in the darkness.

Good morning Pilgrim,
Yes, we live in a very exciting period of time. I reckon preachers everywhere will be getting sermons ready on "The Coming of The Lord draweth nigh".
Thankful for the Preaching of Jesus Christ I am thankful for powerful preaching about my savior! I pray many people will hear this message and be moved by the Holy Spirit to seek the Living God! He truly has spoken!
God bless you, Bro Mike!
