Putin respects Trump whereas neocon position is to provoke (while Congress funds jihadists in Syria)
Putin is there holding back ISIS.
Rand Paul introduced legislation to STOP funding groups that genocide Christians, the true gentleman --- US evangelicals DIDN"T CARE.
Zionists love wores. they think it builds God's Kingdom.
Trump wasn't stuck in dispy la la land and purely from a rationalist point of view saw that invading Iq had nothing to do with 9/11 and would cause more misery and was a foolish thing to do.
sad when rationalists have more discernment than Christians, but this is the issue as long as they wear the hexagram as a good luck charm, they don't have to know the issues, pay attention to what is really going on.
all someone has to do is flash the hexagram to the minions and they say "gooooood".
this is the influence of the American evangelical movement on the world.
and the democrats with their deplorable amoral utopias build the NWO through perversions. and the two seem to meet in the middle, for our sons die for hexagrams and gay parades.
question I ask is, who will represent Americans....
Thank you Thank you, Pastor White, for a truthful, sober, and compassionate message on Christ's truth about human sexuality. One other thought that occurred to me when you read that He created them male and female: we should rejoice in the gender God has created us! And rejoice that He has created the other gender which we are not. And rejoice in the Creator's wisdom and love for us that He created people in 2 different but complementary genders. May the Lord sustain you in faithfully teaching His Word.
I don't care if he wants to be nice to people, great to be nice to people if they feel the need to be "validated", as to how marriage is defined will be essential to future of this nation, if it survives at all.

Why Dave you shouldn't be so argumentative calling the future leader of the free world "pesky" After all whoever is chosen will be used by God as His instrument.
Why are you fellows surprised? The GOP has been going gooey on queer stuff for several years now.
Huffpost wrote: Walker, like other ambitious Republican governors, is trying to strike a delicate balance.
His comments come just days after he formally appealed a federal judge's ruling striking down Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriages, a ban he supported. But after his party's disastrous 2012 election, the Republican National Committee commissioned a report calling for more "inclusive and welcoming" tones on divisive social issues â particularly those "involving the treatment and the rights of gays."
Phil Johnson wrote: ...Americaâs moral decline has accelerated dramatically since evangelicals became politically aggressive in the late 1970s....they have been remarkably ineffective when it comes to using politics to reverse Americaâs moral and spiritual decline...Evangelicals have pretty much forfeited whatever real moral and spiritual authority their movement ever had.
Yes, I know you quoted me verbatim. It was your subsequent construct to which I objected and denied because it altered the meaning of what I wrote. "Is" confers the meaning of an absolute, a fact. There is no way I could say or imply that I know for a fact Ted Cruz "is" an instrument of God for our harm. The remainder of my sentence made that exceedingly clear: "...... nor do any of us know of a certainty God's will for this nation at this time."
I've been discussing on Christian forums for 13 years, most of that time right here on SA, and I know how quickly things can spin out of control for no more reason than a misunderstanding. Ask for clarification before accusing. As a rule, Christians don't lie.
No hard feelings.
edit: Brother Dave, I don't say it much but you are a beloved brother. Thanks for cheering from the sidelines that peace may prevail on this thread for the glory of God.
Praise be to Jesus! Hallelujah. :-) Those pesky politicians and Satan would be ecstatic that we get distracted from all things Christ and start a discourse among the beloved. Let's stay on track guys and not argue ,these, of the world clowns have no capability of dazzling us with brilliance, they will tell us what ever it takes to get elected, baffling us with bulldust instead. God bless, to All
website error I hope With faith, it is impossible to please God
The Christian is saved by faith
The Christian is to walk, to live, by faith
Whatever we do apart from faith is described as sin
This was typed under more about the sermon. I hope this is an error.
I read it as with faith, it is impossible to please God. I find this wrong. Maybe It SHOULD Read "Without faith" it is impossible to please God.
Lurker, Again, I put the full quote of what you said above my follow up. You forgot to mention that in subsequent posts. And I'm not saying that you wrote "is", I'm saying that you did imply that Cruz would be by bringing that into the conversation. I think both of us misunderstood eachother. When I added the "is" I wasn't claiming to quote you, that's why, if you'll notice, it's not included in the quotation marks. You accused me of altering your statement, which I had quoted verbatim above my follow up. I had not modified that quote in any way, so I was understandably upset you accused me of tinkering with it! I hope there are no bad feelings on either side!

I think the observation from "Huh" is on the mark for any and all who argue for the sake of argument...... myself included.
But I'd like to think my "discussion", to use the term loosely, with Geff was intended to get to the bottom of false accusations and set the record straight. If I'm going to be accused of something I'd at least like to know what it is so I can either defend myself or make it right. It's a serious accusation to call a Christian a liar and any who willfully do so should be fully prepared to make good on the accusation or retract with apology. We'll see.
Blessings to you, brother and fellow "Lurker groupy".
The Meccans said,âHe is the one who teaches Muhammad most of what he brings.âThen Allah revealed, 016.103 âWe know what they (pagans)say: âIt is only a mortal man who teaches him (Muhammad). But the tongue of the man they wickedly point to is notably foreign, while this (Qurâan) is pure Arabic.ââ When accused of plagiarism, the best Team Islam could do was to claim that the Bible Jabr was quoting from wasnât written in Arabic. Thatâs a problem. First, by responding to the Meccanâs claim that Muhammad was out of his mind, a demon-possessed madman,plagiarizing scripture, the Qurâan confirmed that these were legitimate concerns. Muhammadâs kin were convinced he was demon possessed and insane. Second, the Qurâan continues to reflect manâs least civil nature rather than rising above the fray and inspiring humankind. Name-calling isnât divine and the never-ending argument isnât motivational. Further, without the supplementalâscriptureâ from the Hadith, the Qurâanâs response is senseless. No one would have any way of knowing who was talking to whom, or why. Senseless material that floats aimlessly outside place,circumstance,and time doesnâtbelong in a book that claims to be dictated word for word by God.
I know God said torn the other cheek, pray for those that despise you, but c'mon geff, if you were my boy I'd give you a clip under the ear for being so argumentative, childish and petty. Take the hint mate, enough already brother

This week both President Obama and Congresswoman Pelosi spoke in favor of Muslims and Islam. For this, I cannot criticize them, because in speaking in favor of Muslims and the religion of Islam they exercised their right of free speech. Having said this, I truely belive that both of them should have set aside their political correctness and have had the courage and decency to demand that all moderate muslims who practice and adhere to their "religion of love", to openly speak out against and condemn all acts of terrorisim committed and performed in the name of Allah.
Great Sermon! Excellent, thought provoking sermon. I appreciate your loyalty to the King James Bible and your understanding of the importance of not questioning or correcting God's word. If your position on Easter here is correct - and it may very well be - shouldn't we be observing the resurrection of Christ on the 17th day of the first month (the actual day He arose) every year rather than changing the date around like we currently do? Something to think about.
Great Sermon! The entire three part message is a must listen, for those seeking to serve the Lord, apart from the rule of this world system and desiring to live holy in our pursuit of Christ while we pilgrimage here. This preaching is VERY suited for the serious brother or sister in the Lord. Thank you Pastor Greer.
