Once again, the "I only look at the name rather than the doctrine" crowd is out. Seriously, comparing those who believe in the sovereignty of God and Lordship of Christ, very God of very God, with demon worshippers is preposterous at the least and blasphemous at worst.
Jay Jay, Please, stop trying to keep this going by constantly rehashing it. You are attempting to make things worse than what they are, it's called meddling and it's a sin. 1 Peter 4:15 comes to mind, "But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters."
I urge you to leave this matter alone, for the sake of Christ's name. To continue to hold onto things only leads to sin. You are picking through others comments and pulling out bits and pieces in an attempt to slander Michael, you need to stop. Please, take to heart these verses from Ephesians 4, " Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, 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."
We as parents are partly responsible for this. Why do you think daughters accused of not being virgins on their wedding night were stoned on their fathers doorstep? Because it is the parents duty, especially the fathers, to protect their children from this kind of stuff. But some of us failed in that duty, and handed our children over to public edu. and super nanny for their teaching and discipling. That is were WE have gone wrong.
Funny how "the elect" say the their gospel is Calvinism. GOD'S real children know that the Gospel is about Jesus Christ ,who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification. Hallejuah ! What a Saviour!
either individuals have rights or corporations. Jim, you are pushing for corporate identity (as was Romney, making both parties nearly identical) and collectivism and then the great leader gets to decide what their behavior is. many would like to go back to having a say in our own lives.
there's a great big world out there and more to "choose" from than the one or two choices that corporations widdle things down to...
ie if I have cancer, and if I saw someone use baking soda treatments and voila, its gone (breast cancer), but then you come to me and say you must have insurance and now you can have chemo or you can just say no to chemo, and I'm thinking, in God's great world, my only options is chemical warfare agents from WWI or nothing? come on now.
or like, well you can't have treatment because you hit the age limit, so would you like us to euthanize you or send you home? questions like that, you know, that make you go "hmmm". its a contrived reality.

I know others here have found the same by the way they have spoken of their spouses in the way of respect, discussing things, etc, etc. Man, I sure would like to have what you guys have Instead of someone who has, piece by piece, and day by day, turned me Into someone I don't even recognize...ha-ha. : / I can't even imagine what it's like to have a spouse who I could talk over the bible with, tell me to hurry or we'll be late for church, or have Christ as a priority, or even take Him seriously for that matter.
The article begins "sadly we live in that"trains' our minds....yes by all means let the victimhood begin...the people who wrote the new testament lived in a culture where sex was public and part of "religous" worship and yet nowhere does one find any indication of victimhood in the new testament.
People then had a choice and people today have a choice.
Great Sermon! Of all the thousands of classes that Dr. Jim has taught these are my favorites. Before I attended these classes I was a Methodist by denomination and an Armenian by theology.. After listening to the classes I was a confirmed Baptist and a Calvinist by theology. You will learn more about theology and Church history and the evolution of theology from these classes than any other source that I know of available. I listen to these classes over and over again and remember or learn something new each time. I guess it is as Dr. Jim has always said, "There is a time element to learning". Thanks Dr. Jim foremost fabulous incomparable set of lessons from history and God's Word.
