Huh? I prefer ISIL because for me The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is a better description than Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham

The Christians debate. and contend for the faith ardently.
It is the reprobate who hates because that is his natural state.
But what is a Christian? Is this one? "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?" Matt 7.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
If the contending becomes heated should the Christian stop and give up?
Jesus said; Matt 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." ~ Was HE wrong being so contentious?
When NYC had a Republican, Jewish mayor, they didn't have this nonsense. Yes, with what happen on 9/11, perhaps NYC should be pointing out The Bloody Legacy of Islam and have a holiday celebrating the Inadequacy of Islam? :-7

Now, why is my Christianity is suddenly racist, Penny? We have black members at IHCC who fully integrated into the body, can your church say the same? I would hope so! IHCC has never discriminated on race, etc.
Galatians 3 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.---NASB
Read the article, it has to do with the Ferguson Mo. police force. It has nothing to do with even the neighboring police forces which one would hope did not operate as was reported in the interesting article I put up in the last message. If what was said was true, it was at least a racist police force. Why weren't there black police officers on that force? As I said go read the article.
By the way, thanks, Penny, for taking notice of my response to this thread, which again is a hot issue.
Beneficial Warning to keep from compromising. This message caused me to wake up and be aware of how easy it is to conform to this world. The instruction given will surely help me and will hopefully help others as well.

When you say 'bro in law,' are you saying he was married to your sister then divorced? If so, isnt that your ex bro in law? or is this a union involving your real brother?

You see, that's all you think about. You act weird, obnoxious, patronising, bigoted, and then you say, "Why don't ya'll become the same as me?"
That's real crafty, to so misrepresent the doctrines of grace, as to put people off them. Tell you what, why not read some stuff by Bishop John Ryle, the evangelist George Whitefield, and Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and get to find out what real Christianity is like? I don't think you're a real Presbyterian by belief, or other Presbies would soon get on your case, for bringing the denomination into disrepute.
And I'm only saying this for your own good. Scoring points avails nothing with God, but saving people from hypocrisy is well worthwhile. And that is my motivation, to help you see yourself that you might abhor what you see. This is a good start to Christianity, and bears good fruit.
Great Sermon! I have just discovered ' A journey through the Bible" and there are not enough words to express how enormously happy I am. Thank you Pastor Lyle, you are one of God's Great Servants. I feel it in my spirit. I will go through the whole book excitedly. May God continue to bless you
