No, it isn't Mike, it's the greatest thing since sliced bread!

āI donāt think we should apologize for it,ā Obama said. āI donāt think we should be defensive about it. I think there is a strong, good, right story to tell. What the other side is doing and what the other side is offering would strip away protections from those families, and from hundreds of millions of people who had health insurance before the law passed.
Yeah, although maybe it's one of those laws "antiquated" laws that have been overturned and it could also be a state by state law. I haven't researched it but a state I lived in had it on the books. There was a news segment of obscure laws many years ago and this was one of them, along with still being able to hang a man in Utah, and others I can't remember anymore.
That's right, John. Christ, minus the spiritual aspect is recorded by historians as a man who was alive and well.and associated with the Christian community. Josepheus, among others, have written of him. People are funny spouting such nonscense and what kills me is when people form opinions, fight for or against something, etc, and know nothing about the facts or topics they are spouting off about. They know what they have been told or concocted in their own minds and run with it; arguing and fighting tooth and nail over things they're really clueless about but think they're experts.
Here is an interesting point: since Paul said "for he is not a Jew which is one outwardly. . . but he is a Jew which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart. . . ", and the Jews hate Jesus who was a Jew, does that make the Jews anti-Semite?
Newflash: Clemson University's Muslim, Mormon, Jehovah's witness, Episcopalian, Wiccan, scientologist, football coach and staff have been emphasizing prayer, studies from their holy book, and other religious activities. They even bus players to their local religious meeting place as well.
Response from the Freedom from religion foundation and the general public:
Proverbs 14:12 KJV 12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
So what do we do in such a case? Just let him carry on in his deception? Say to ourselves, "Well, I have to work out my own salvation, no time for anyone else, let him die and go to hell but when I die I shall go to heaven, and the sooner the better."
Strat, do you need prayer? Are you suffering so much? There are many brethren here who will pray for you if you ask. Many are already praying for you without being asked. This is Christianity in action, seeking the Lord.
Strat wrote: How did Paul argue,dispute and persuade ? like some of the used car salesmen in today's pulpits,he said himself he used simple language without cunning and deceit. As far as Pauls statement about being damned to save his kinsmen I freely admit that I am not there and doubt you are either....but I learned a long time ago to never compete with anyone determined to out holy you....you win. I will conclude that every trick in the book is being used today to attract and compel people with less than desirable results in regard to true salvation and change in people's lives.
How does concern for souls and seeking to argue, persuade, convince etc turn into cunning and deceit?
Just because we have easy believism, it does not mean that we have to follow them. There is a biblical pattern we can safely follow and certainly what I see is the apostle pressed inwardly for conversions. Try reading Spurgeons Lectures to my students (the whole book is an absolute gem) and particularly the chapter on 'conversion our aim'. Your thick skinned response does not surprise me, but please don't presume on where I am in relation to Paul's statement that he could wish himself accursed etc. You have no idea how I agonise in prayer etc for souls.
Strat wrote: The bible says to work out YOUR salvation with fear and trembling,not the salvation of others with endless dabating,i am not commanded to sweat or obsess over the salvation of Bloomberg or anyone else. When did Christianity become about debating who is saved and who isn't...we'll all find out in the end.
Strat, Are you referring to me? Is there something amiss in my witnessing? I am always willing to learn, you know. Let me tell you the scenario, and then you can tell me how to go about helping this individual.
Moniker Man thinks that salvation floats down from heaven, such that suddenly he gets a goosebump, and declares, "Oooh, I think I've been saved."
Or Moniker Man was baptised as a baby, thus he thinks that on account of that, he is now in the covenant of grace, because his baptism is a sign and seal of his ingrafting into Christ, of regeneration, and all the blessings of salvation.
But Moniker Man does not accept that he has to believe in Christ to be justified. He does not imagine repentance to be a correct response to the gospel. He rather wants to do nothing, so that God is glorified better.
I am not "debating". I am preaching the gospel. I am preaching Christ crucified. I want folks to be saved.
Atheists are so stupid to claim that Jesus is a myth. There is ample writings from ancient secular writers that prove the historicity of Jesus. Why do atheists deny the writings of those ancient secular writings pertaining to Jesus?
I love what you have done with the app.- especially the app for the iPhone. I specifically like the variable playback speed option. Will you be adding this feature to the android app anytime soon? thanks, keep up the good work - Lord Bless.
