Your Pastor JB cuts and splits wood (Fiskers axe) for heating purposes in a wood stove (New England).
It's interesting btw, how the same wicked religion responsible for destroying the environment also claims to protect it.
The acts of terrorism by the Conservation Department folks, so I've heard, are said to be just as wicked as the acts of terrorism committed by the IRS people.
I haven't had a run it with the Conservation sect yet, but if and when I do, I may be forced to temporarily adhere to Calvie doctrine if necessary, then just repent later in accordance with Roman doctrine!
Ok, no comment on Jupiter I take it. What makes an apostle a real apostle then? And why are you so angry with me? Do you want to hurt me or kill me in the name of Jesus in accordance with Calvinist/Statist doctrine?
Your sin will find you out wrote: Revelation 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: Looks like all the liars mentioned above were NOT the last.

Should I or shouldn't I? Oh well, here goes.
Hbr 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is a noun. Substance is a noun. Evidence is a noun.
In this case, nouns are things (possessions). In and of themselves they do nothing just as a dollar won't buy a cup of coffee unless you order the coffee and tender the dollar. However, faith, being a fruit of the Holy Spirit, does enable the possessor thereof to believe God (as Abraham the father of us all did), trust Him, love Him, fear (revere) Him as commanded. Moreover, faith enables the possessor thereof to fulfill the law of faith.
Assent is a verb, an action.
How can intellectual assent of the truth properly define faith, Randy? IOW, how can a verb define a noun?
Psalms of Ascents series I was first made aware of the 11th sermon in this series, "Dealing With Abusive Men", Psalm 129. I was so taken aback at the forthright, honest delivery of God's Word in regards to this delicate subject. This prompted me to commence listening to the whole series. LIVING WITH DECEITFUL MEN reminds us that there are those who have "lying lips and ... a deceitful tongue". Although they speak of "peace", "they are for war."
Thank you Lord for Pastor Powell. The downcast and broken-in-spirit need more pastors like him.
Great Sermon! I really enjoyed this sermon for the directness and attention it gave to reaping and sowing. That's a very important thing we need to remember in today's society where everyone seems to think there's no consequences for the actions done right now. \this sermon really helped me see this and i also recommended it to a few of my friends. Thanks for this!

I hope so, Shane. As long as we have dual citizenship as Christians, we'll face situations like this.
It grieves me to see him worry so, knowing that he has other issues dragging him down as well. Anxiety over the unknown is a huge cause of stress and I just hope that sharing some of my experiences will help prepare him to deal with the issue and relieve some of the stress.

Jim, thanks for your response and the nice compliment. Your CPAC article neglects to point out that there was a civil rights bill under Republican president Dwight Eisenhower (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1957 for documentation and quote) that then Senate Majority leader LBJ received recognition "...from the mostly southern anti-civil rights Democrats for reducing it so much as to kill it." That a Republican president "freed" the slaves and that NO democrat voted for the 14th amendment. Even when they passed civil rights legislation a much larger percentage of Republicans voted for it than Democrats. You can LBJ's attitude in a quote from this web site (http://tinyurl.com/n6a5kbh) which for space and so as not to needlessly offend will not post it. LBJ was no friend of the black man. His motivation is seen in the quote on this website (http://tinyurl.com/k2j7956) again not posting it here so as to not needlessly offend. Not sure who gave you the idea about Southern Catholic, very few of those down this way, mainly Baptist.
Also, the revolution was not about changing gov. but conserving what they had taken away, see Declaration of Independence.
I find it hard to believe that a Christian would be disobedient in this respect unless it is done in ignorance. But surely before making such a serious decision as a tattoo, a believer would no do this without much prayer and searching the Word of God.
Leviticus 19:28 KJV  Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord .

But we mustn't forget LBJ's Vietnam War fiasco, even if inconvenient. The Great Society wasn't so great for the 50000 plus Americans or the millions of Viets who died in a totally pointless war.
