Great Sermon! In regard to the comments section: sometimes when the war is over some people just can't let go of their warrior hearts....War has become preferable to peace! "But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another." There is a time for war and a time for peace...You cannot always win in war. Did intransigence bring more souls into the Kingdom? Is there not a Diotrephes spirit here in those who call Paisley's actions a travesty? I also saw travesty in the way this old warrior was treated by men who owed their salvation to his preaching ministry...I fear some became addicted to war and have become unable to obey Jesusâ€™ command to 'love your enemies.. Dr. Paisley led the way in "agreeing with the adversary" on war. Matthew 5:25.. He did not become a Roman Catholic, folks, although one would think so from the talk of travesty, but, no doubt he saw from his position what others could not see, and he bravely acted, despite knowing his fellows' hearts and the poison they would give him.
Did this compromise in any way cause us to lose souls for the Kingdom of God? I think not. Is that not our real purpose? I think so! The irony of those who bleat "Hebrews 13:17" to their congregationsâ€¦but who failed in this themselves is not lost on me!
Well said pennned, I'm not going to get into this long laborious debate again. It's like all other issues. You are either for or against and no one can sway your opinion. I saw the side effects of my sons injections. We stopped them and he will get no more!!! It's hard to watch your son or daughter slip away and not know what to do about it. You feel so very helpless. And I'm the one that held him down so they could inject him with that stuff. I'm his father, I'm supposed to protect him. I didn't know.
'Wonderful uplifting Sermon!' Thank you for a wonderful Sermon!! This Sermon explains in plain language the meaning of sanctification. A must for everyone. What a blessing to see it on video Thank you Pastor..Thank you Jesus!!
Great Sermon! As usual Dr Jim Delivers spiritual truths from the text. I have been listening to full Gospel of John and found so many insights that often times get hidden in the translation and insights in the historical background.
So many of us are so ignorant of exactly what is really going on here. Thanks, again penned, for information that enlightens us to things that are going on that I could never even imagine. Unbelievable. I asked the woman, who draws our blood to be tested, has she taken her flu shot yet. She said, no I won't take it because I know all the things that go in it!! I can't take it either because I'm allergic to eggs. Haven't had one since 1975. Had the flu once during that time. My husband takes one every year.
I heard Rush interview his brother and thought, 'softball questions, softball questions' that he criticizes liberal reporters for asking their beloved liberal politicians. But it was good that he took time out of his usual politically oriented show to cover the material, and though the book could have been written by any Christian lawyer (that's not an oxymoron, by the way), it is good to have a 'big name' like DL write it so that it gets more circulation. But don't expect DL to be interviewed on PBS "Religious News Weekly" or "Charlie Rose Show" TV programs or NPR radio shows.
At the same time, this book may be 'preaching to the choir' since we know Proverbs 32:5 A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.
Great Sermon!...further cross reference for cross reference, see www.sermonaudio.com series entitled "Domestic Violence and Abuse" by Pastor Jeff Crippen a former police officer and pastor whose deep research has led to the book "The Cry for Justice". He also compares the abuser with Diotrephes who loved to have the pre-eminence...and addresses the problem that leaders also face in the churches. This study opens eyes, while the churches generally have failed to understand what abuse really is...all women should go directly to at least the first 18 of these sermons in the 21 sermon series on this website...in the end you will see how more submission is not always the answer...
You know penned, prayers have no side effects that are bad but only good, so that's wonderful that you pray for me and others and you are right about all the poison that's in water, food we think is safe but we have learned through the years that it can be harmful even to cause death at times( in spinach and other greens that we buy in bags) You have a good day also, sister and I'll pray for you and thanks for the information that you seem to know so much about. I don't keep up with world events that much so it's good to have someone that does on here.

Remember Mike, Romans 13 has been read by 20 centuries of magistrates too. Dont you see the brilliance in this act of Providence warning leaders to govern wisely and that they will be held accountable for wickedness? Yes even Nero was sure to have seen this document, but also just rulers throughout the latest centuries
if you have a natural health food store nearby, you can go in and ask questions, sometimes they'll have free events where you can learn about pain or inflammation management, and there are a lot of alternative doctors and naturopaths out there who've spent a lifetime working on these things. you'll find some bad apples sometimes too. wish I could be there with you. well good day.
didactics wrote: --- Rom 13. "He calls them the higher powers, not the supreme, who possess the chief authority, but such as excel other men. Magistrates are then thus called with regard to their subjects, and not as compared with each other. And it seems indeed to me, that the Apostle intended by this word to take away the frivolous curiosity of men, who are wont often to inquire by what right they who rule have obtained their authority; but it ought to be enough for us, that they do rule; for they have not ascended by their own power into this high station, but have been placed there by the Lord's hand. And by mentioning every soul, he removes every exception, lest any one should claim an immunity from the common duty of obedience. "For there is no power," etc. The reason why we ought to be subject to magistrates is, because they are constituted by God's ordination. --- (John Calvin)

Penned, where can you get white willow? I take some herbs but haven't heard of that. My right knee is swollen even now and I won't go have a cortison shot put in it because of the side effects of that!!!
Btw, my back pain is caused from an extra veterbra that is twisted in my back and back then no fluoride was in the water. I always had to be careful with my back but didn't know why until after my fourth child was born and pain in my side sent me to a doctor that gave me a barium test and found it and a spastic colon which caused the pain Later in my 40s the back pain got much worse, added problem degenerative disc disease. Then the pain meds started with motrin in a prescription form. Therapist put me on back exercises, which helped also. I also take vitamins which I really believe in and vitamin D is helpful and fish oil which I also take.
