âFranklin Graham told the Indianapolis Star (6/3/99) that his father's longstanding ecumenical alliance with the Catholic Church and all other denominations, "was one of the smartest things his father ever did."
Case in point- Franklin Graham. In August at the Three Rivers Festival (Franklin refuses to call the gatherings "Crusades" like his father,) the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association hosted a Catholic Bishop on stage, partnered with the city's Catholic church as part of the "evangelistic outreach." Bishop David Zubik was the Catholic representative, and he was invited to give the opening prayer. Worse, seekers were encouraged to come to the Catholic church for counseling, since they were 'right next door.' Here are the Bishop's words. This is from the August 10 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Bishop David Zubik said the [Franklin Graham Three Rivers] festival dovetails with calls by recent popes to a ânew evangelization,â bringing back cradle Catholics who drifted or became estranged from the faith.â
The above is from the internet and it specifically deals with FG, not BG. Also, FG never condemned his fatherâs ecumenicalism and as noted above the apple didnât fall far from the tree.
funny, no one quotes the Talmud. in many circles the Talmud is higher than the torah, they must read the torah through the Talmud.
so what does the Talmud have to say about Christ, about "Gentiles" and how they are to be treated? ---any of our brave teachers willing to tackle this?
there is a singularity with Christ. No one comes to the Father but by Him.
Islm is works based, they have to pass the balance, and the Talmud is works based, kabbal is mysticism and gender merging, catholocism is based on traditions when people had no access to the written Word, but Christ stood alone on the cross as the Lamb of God.
Every tongue and tribe will confess that He is Lord. But Savior will only be for those who were saved by His blood.
This offer of salvation is a free gift to those who would believe in His name (and not their works). His yoke is light. This offer of forgiveness is given for every tribe and tongue. There is no special treatment because of one's race.
Yet another ploy by the devil and those he uses to do his bidding to invert God's order. Our Lord created men first and gave them the responsibilities of protection and provision of their women and children (Nehemiah 4:14; I Timothy 5:8). When women usurp this, confusion follows, which God did not author (I Cor. 14:33). Feminism is rebellion, which is as the sin of witchcraft (I Samuel 15:23).
I will answer you wrote: if the article had been on how Phil Robertson was coming out against the Super Bowl. sc might have put out a caveat about not liking Duck Dynasty but she would not have called him a him a hypocrite but a needed voice of reason that should be heeded.
Sorry, may it be stated that as threads deviate in focus due to personal twists, the intention of the comment was to refocus a seemly misleading point. Humans can go wrong at any time, yet truth remains straight. Standing for objective truth is always commendable. Misrepresentation should not be part of dialogue, neither assumptions or preconceived ideas about personal intention. These distort logic, and character. Regretfully, such phenomena is quite common here.
On a different note, failing to perceive the ethical inconsistences of Duck Dynasty, represents a gross lack of spiritual discernement. One does not need to 'watch' it, a simple research may suffice to verify this.

I shared your concerns. two come out of nowhere and "know Lurker's habits"... reflects they don't want to discuss the issues at hand but cause division.
lots of smugness regarding carson's concerns that votes were taken by him by a false testimony from the crz campaign. and this is a concern of trumps because the possibiltily would then be that he would've won. polls certainly showed he should have.
there was so much corruption within rnc last election, outright fraud and people are tired of it. tired of not being able to trust the election process.
anyone watch the video of how the democrats voted? a total circus act! oh, lets count the three guys that left with Hillary, oh, lets take a vote to see if we should vote a third time. what???
and next comes computer controlled ballots, which EVERY YEAR we find complaints that people's votes are automatically going to the wrong person.
Beautiful Biblical Sermon As always, Pastor Arnold preaches pure Biblical truth. We are so blessed to have a Pastor who exposits the Scripture rightly! Check out this sermon, I guarantee that it will bless you. Then, you need to check out his other sermons.
Diffently love is a important aspect of Biblical Orthodox Christianity, but love isn't divorced from truth. They harmonise in unity with one another but if your love & tuth is built off false premises, at the end of the day you have nothing in reality then. For ones foundation needs to be built off what only Christ can do for one alone. For their is no friend like Jesus Christ, to the Christ do I cling to amen.
ISA 8:20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
The article makes no sense. (apart from a "church" saying God's Word and His order of things is unimportant) From the best I can figure Unitarians practice affusion. So how would the location make a difference for the "transgender" individual?

I thank you for your kind words, sf. But pray not for my Dad, he has passed on.
1. I can get comments in from 2 different ip addresses by using my cellphone (not on wireless) for one comment and my computer (tablet) for the other. I am not saying that is what is being done.
2. Lurker, appreciate your graciousness with Geff, will agree with John UK, did not see you lying or changing your position.
3. Geff, it appears that you harbor bitterness in your heart toward Lurker. I pray that I am wrong, but your constant attacks on him tell a different story.
4. Given the long pattern of people posting under different monikers, GS may have jumped to the wrong conclusion but it wasn't like it was an unreasonable thought.
5. Finally, agree with those that say we are heading for the judgment of God and just as He used David to be the instrument of His judgment (II Samuel 24) for His people, He can use whomever wins the White House in the same way.
Ephesians 4:31&32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
I don't know if you call them strange, John. You will find many of them dedicated atheists. This feature of many of them is very sad, and they can be actively hostile to Christianity. But it was also pointed out in the series of articles some can be open to Christianity and then actually become Christian. See, http://tinyurl.com/hxv2p28 (Unitarian Universalism-Part 7) . Yes, I know of one who had became a Christian. So it is possible.
Graham said that Jesus Christ is "alive today. Muhammad is dead.
"I worship a risen Lord," he added. "Islam can't compete with that."
"The foundations of this nation have nothing to do with Islam."
They have "everything to do with the Church of Jesus Christ," said Graham, head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan's Purse global charity. "Islam cannot save anyone from hell or open the gates of heaven."
Remember that what one's daddy says does not mean it is what the son said.
Many LIE and conflate a dad's quotes with the son.
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
B. McCausland wrote: My apologies for this intervention, but it is not sure that the core of your premise above formed part of SC's original remarks. The original statements pointed to larger accountability/responsibility/guilt on a believer associating with amoral practice, than from an unconverted involved in inmorality. The reason is that the believer by reason of his new nature in Christ is accountable to godliness; the unregenerated is not. Actually, the remarks did not intent to state exclusion or admitance into heaven by any practice, as this would be a salvation by works. They rather centered on personal accountability. The line of thought revolved around the principle stated in Luk 12:48 "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." The believer is called unto holiness, not the unregenerated. So, there is not need to provide a verse to support the conclusion stated above. Just trying to be fair.
if the article had been on how Phil Robertson was coming out against the Super Bowl. sc might have put out a caveat about not liking Duck Dynasty but she would not have called him a him a hypocrite but a needed voice of reason that should be heeded.
