Acts 16:16-24 KJV (16) And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: (17) The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. (18) And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. (19) And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, (20) And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, (21) And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. (22) And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. (23) And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: (24) Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
Great Sermon! Thank you Dr. Jim for all you give us: doctrine, wisdom, example and humour. I'm listening at every opportunity - can't get enough! I thank the Lord for bringing me to your sermons. God protect you.
John MacArthur wrote: Many think this is a political problem that will not be solved without a political strategy. During the past twenty-five years, well-meaning Christians have founded a number of evangelical activist organizations and sunk millions of dollars into them in an effort to use the apparatus of politicsâ€”lobbying, legislation, demonstration, and boycottâ€”to counteract the moral decline of American culture....
But is that a proper perspective? I believe not. Americaâ€™s moral decline is a spiritual problem, not a political one, and its solution is the gospel, not partisan politics.
Here's how they can make everyone more comfortable, and they could use that money for what should be a very simple hospital procedure, so they could do a lot of them.
Matthew 18 7 â€śWoe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! 8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.
Matthew 19 12 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.---ESV
If you look at the starlets from yesteryear, most were the size of Olivia De Havilliand, average height 5' 4" under 100 pounds. And that's was what contract actors had to master in size and nothing would be substituted. As a side note, Trump has said he wished he could be a great movie studio owner, that probably why he says such harsh things about women's bodies, not to mention the rumor he's paid for abortions. He has his type and not too happy if women go off the rail and let themselves go.
Ok, it's like the snake lady or two headed calf. The short haired " guy" was impregnated by the long haired " girl". Deviants lie and the federal government has been pursuing an anti - natural science agenda for 20 years. DNA is resilient to a lot of things but retro viruses. The fact is the government dalliance with transgendered people will allow for a mutation of the virus that causes an AIDS super virus which with kill quicker and be transmitted possibly without sexual contact. At least one such virus is transmitted by kissing. At least that's what got Halston, Capote and Rock Hutson.
Dave of oz, I told my wife, " the Mormons are going to go nuts over this. It was probably inscribed in 1933 by artisans paid by the federal government as a means of hiring local artists to work on rock in New Mexico. As much money was thrown to the arts and nuts and berries during the Great Depression, I wouldn't put it past the LDS church decided to add money to this endeavor. That or Howard Hughes wanted to compete with Cecil B Demille for religious movie making.
Pastor Jon wrote: Frank, im sure you know more about Warren than I do, all I'm saying is that I would rather use my critism on ministers when they are teaching false doctrine. Maybe Warren does, what heresies has he proposed? I'm seriously asking. I don't know?
Sorry for this late response, but I just sat back down at the computer. I have studied a great deal about Rick Warren and the purpose driven movement. I suppose that made my comment seem overly harsh and I am sorry I came across that way.
I have written 19 pages and over 9200 words concerning Rick Warren's movement. Far too much to share on this forum, but if you want it via email, then I'll send it to you.
However, I did run across this article by Lighthouse Trails that is a well respected discernment site. I believe it discusses his catholic connection, but I only skimmed it very quickly. Just google Rick Warren or the purpose driven heresy and you will find lots of stuff. But, if you want my 19 pages they are there for you.
Great Sermon! this is what i CANT STAND!!
HOMOSEXUALS USING CIVIL RIGHT LAWS FOR SODOMY... and equating it with mixed marriages
BLACKS SHOULD BE MARCHING AGAINST THAT.. not a cop shooting a person....
I agree Jim, I followed this on the news closely and saw how they moved him from a special airplane to a waiting ambulance. He was in a special suit and looked like he was in a space suit. Interesting how it was handled and they lived.
Noticed the same thing at times while listening to Trump and it showed a split screen. Her eyes kept closing or trying to close. She could barely keep them open and when speaking she seemed alert. Strange and others I talked to thought she had a shot of some kindl
Kev from San Diego: Ken Silva the over searer of the links I provided was a good defender of faith, as he did his home work, in researching out & exposing false teachings. With videos, & foot notes where he got his material from, that is one thing, I really liked about him. & really appreciated of his ministry work, that he had. He would take to Twitter & get into conversations with people like T.D. Jakes, who is false word of faith teacher. Brother Ken of the site & links provided, went to be with the Lord, a couple of years ago amen.
Hey Needhim great link decided to list a link from the link and a quote from the Vatican website where I got the quote!
3. The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth,(5) who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life...
Noble Bereans "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." Acts 17:11
As the Bereans faithfully examined the scriptures to ensure that the apostle Paul's message was based on truth, so must we search the scriptures as Christians today to prove that what is being taught is correct. As for God's omniscience, the attribute of being all knowing, every good Berean can start with just this handful of many scriptures declaring this to be so: Mat 11:27, John 10:15, 1 Cor 2:10-11, Isaiah 40:13-14, Job 21:22, Rom.11:33-34, 1 Cor. 2:16, Mat.10:30, Luke 12:7, Psalm 147:4, Isaiah 40:26, Deut.29:29, Job 37:15-16, Dan. 2:22, Mat. 24:36, Mark 13:32, Acts 1:7, 2 Cor. 12:2-4, Job 34:21, Job 24:23, Job 31:4, Psalm 33:13-15, Psalm 139:2-3, Jer. 23:24, Mat. 6:8, Luke 12:29-30, 1 Chron. 28:9, Psalm 44:20-21, Psalm 139:1-2, and 1 Peter 1:2.
Another good, eye opening peek into what Pastor Warren says, & allows inside of his own Church of Saddleback. Sadly many have said through either of ignorance or just plain self-deception of being lost & unregenerate.
As anyone who denies the Biblical Christ in Him alone is salvation found alone, based off His justifying merits , of His imputed righteousness alone. As He is God almighty in the flesh, & if we deny that, we have another god, through another Gospel message then amen.
