B. McCausland wrote: The article itself explains the mathematical extrapolation for this statement.
The article doesn't give much of an explanation. According to the governor, this has never happened before. The meteorologist said there is a 1 in 1000 chance of it happening in any given year. There is no mathematical basis to come up with that odds ratio. It's merely speculation because there is no record from which to derive the odds. The meteorologist could have said 1 in 10000 or 1 in 100000 and it would be as meaningful.
Great Sermon! Amen Pastor Cooley!! I've witnessed this evil surmisings(though I have just now understand what it means by this sermon). As a (FREE) Presbyterian and separated unto the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Though we are Presbyterian, we separated in 1951 from all the other Presbyterian's, OPC, PCA,etc started in Ulster,N Ireland by Dr. Ian Paisley. We are post trib, but don't don't attack our brothers and sisters in Christ that hold to pre-trib rapture. Pre-tribers (extreme fundamentalists) mostly say we are looking forward to the anti-Christ. Pastors even on sermonaudio have titled sermons this way. We don't wish to argue on these matters. Doctrine is important and also baptism by emerging, not sprinkled or infant baptism as Presbyterian Churches do still do, and have pictures of Jesus, idol's, have contemporary services as well....thank you for preaching truth. Scripture alone. KJV only...we are KJV ONLY as well...
You really mustn't've read the second in command of John MacArthur's commentary. If politics is more than a hobby I think it's a sinful waste of time, though Phil wouldn't think that of non-pastors, but...

I wouldnâ€™t suggest that evangelicalismâ€™s recent obsession with political activism is the only factor, but I do think itâ€™s a major one. If the same energies and resources that were poured into failed political efforts had been channeled into evangelism instead, Iâ€™m convinced that would have been instrumental in producing more spiritual good and hindering more of societyâ€™s evils than all our lobbying, demonstrating, and voting combined....

Please, it would be appreciated if you provided further explanations about this without links. Thanks

My "secular humanism" it isn't mine, Penny, I jusst was giving the other side of the coin, of right-wing conspiracies of meddling in government so-called, "Christian" Activism? Both the liberal and right wing nuts of their weird versions of Christianity are obnoxious to me, Penny.

June 12 2012 at 11:46am Connie on angels and read Connie saying her own opinion "not a doctrine of demons, it is a biblical doctrine ABOUT demons. The article you referenced has some errors. First you do not interpret an Old Testament usage of a word from the New Testament meaning. The Sons of God in the Old Testament did not refer to human believers. It referred to angels only. Secondly, just because angels do not marry does not mean they are sexless. " says Unprofitable Servan's "expert witness.
that is not a quote of someone else that is the blog writer talking to someone else(Paul) about her own opinion.
not trying to strive, but as Dr.Daniel said: people ask about your take on it and Connie (your & Get Real's witness) Bob Vincent Jason Cooley Michael Boehm and Mike Hoggar have the same take.
Connie's paper http://bibleconundrumsandcontroversy.blogspot.com/2012/01/giants-nephilim-aliens-do-they-exist.html
Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Rom 13:10 *Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.* Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Rom 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

It would do well to not be deceptive in the use of material you are using to try and prove your point. The article quote that is noted above was the author saying what the beliefs of Mike Hoggard are not their own beliefs and that is quite evident if you read what was written.
The chapters, verses, paragraphs and punctuation were all add later by translators to help us navigate the Scriptures. They serve their purpose to that end. To make up Bible doctrine using those numbers is a violation of adding to the Word of God.
To discourage people from having a Berean spirit to search the Scriptures, which Hoggard apparently does, is a practice of all who try to hide the truth not those who want to propagate it.
A lengthy discussion of whether the sons of God were or were not angels isn't that which leads to godliness but only genders strife, which we are told to avoid. (II Timothy 2:23) So, I leave the discussion to others if they wish.
i was asked a question and tried to answer it, (i hope i did penny, the new age teachings aren't new age but old age witchcraft) i did not base Bible studies with a calculator and albert pikes morals and dogma, i did not do this over and over again, i did not spread heresy as bible truth ... i'm not the only one who thinks Pastor Hoggart is in the wrong here either ...
Lurker wrote: To sum up, God is love and love makes alive but it does not kill. For that reason I say the HS must use a means outside Himself to convict of sin which sin, in Paul's case slew his soul. Have a look at 2 Cor 3:6-11.
I'll best understand what you're saying, if you could answer these questions for me.
1. Mankind is born in sin, born sinners. Because of this sin, they are born dead. How did they die, except by God's hand?
2. You say the Holy Ghost uses something outside himself, because he is love. Is that the same as saying that the death penalty in America is enforced by a man using something outside himself, such as an electric chair or hangman's noose?
because you speak against something means in the next breath you can use it

you can use it, to refute it as either fable or heresy or non-biblical.
Men prefer darkness to light therefore their celebrations will be of darkness and sin. Man enjoys living in his sinful and disobedient state.
"John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."
Enjoying the desires of the flesh and the mind in mans natural estate. "Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
I've never had a problem with the KJV of Thou shalt not kill. I think most would understand it to mean "murder". As far as "without just cause"...since God allows for defense in the Bible,it's not problematic in interpretation in the Commandment as being in reference to killing without just cause. No inconsistency and no error with the KJV wording.
Penned, what i'm saying is that there is not a true mixing of species in science, some minor mixing but no island of Dr. Moreau stuff, the end times deception was at work when Jesus spoke of it, and there was no scientific side of it, just spiritual delusion, the Antichrist will be a man, no fallen angel hybrid, the rabbinical kabbalah that Madonna brings to the masses is the same Jewish heresy that was brought to the Jewish population of long ago, According to the bible, deception in the end times will be the normal state of affairs.

I used to be in Dr. McGee's camp, but the type of teaching that Dr Daniel has here got me to the current position. But I am still open to other perspectives.
Missed the quotes, so J.V.McGee amuses me. Sorry, I missed that, Glad you appreciate his homespun humor.
I listened to Dr. Daniel's intro have some thoughts but I can't address them all just now I have to clean a pellet stove.
I remember reading something from Judges that came to mind. I believe it is a little stronger concept than mixed marriages, as Dr. Daniel's puts it. Maybe because I view family covenantally and Cain's descendants were covenant breakers that continued down the Romans 1 slippery slope. The mixed seed of those within the covenant community and those without. The emphasis on those within because of Paul's teaching in 1Cor. 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. Believing and unbelieving is key as well as the normal means of sowing the seed of truth in the Household of Faith-the faith of Christ Gal.2:20,21
