So True! So true. This is something we all need to be mindful of, not only in our interactions with others but also in our thoughts about them. Thank you for your faithfulness to teach truth, Pastor Cooley; I needed this reminder. One way I learned to immediately change the course of gossip or slander is to say to the gossiper "It sounds like he/she needs some encouragement, why don't you lead us in prayer for him/her?" I've not yet encountered anyone who could continue their sowing of discord following that, whether because their heart got broken by the Lord or because they realized they no longer had a listener
It's also noteworthy that some of these underground churches have little to no discernment - I viewed one video where a woman was preaching - enough said.
'Li Yang is a Roman Catholic', if he is, then I pray God will save him before he gets killed for adhering to a dead religion that does not save. It isn't 'hate' to expose the false teachings of the RCC. It's sad that discernment is so lacking worldwide.
The trolls are up early today, and continues to try his hand at psych 101.
Muddied water messages- "Churchgoers"at a PCUSA Presbyterian assembly gave President-elect Donald Trump a standing ovation as he attended services with Mike Pence, Reince Preibus et.cet.
Trump visited Lamington Presbyterian Church for worship.. But- what type of celebration should true Christians have over ignorant leaders going to places that "are the synagogue of Satan" ??Rev2:9
Lamington Presbyterian, led by female interim minister Jacqui Van Vliet, is a member of the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), which is considered apostate by orthodox Christians as a majority of presbyteries voted last year to amend the Book of Order to redefine marriage and allow ministers to officiate same-sex ceremonies. PCUSA congregations are also generally pro-abortion.
--/ Trump has stated numerous times over the past year that he identifies as Presbyterian. It is not known if he is aware of the difference between PCUSA and PCA.
‚ÄúI am a religious person. People are so shocked when they find this out‚ÄĒI‚Äôm Protestant. I‚Äôm Presbyterian,‚ÄĚ he said during the Iowa Family Leadership Summit last July, stating that his pastor was the late Norman Vincent Peale, who became known for his books and speeches on ‚Äúthe power of positive thinking.

Li Yang is an 'Underground Church' member, they are Catholics loyal to the Pope. https://deidox.org/film/look-inside-underground-church-in-china/
Your link is for the 'House Church' movement, they are Protestant
* Its noteworthy that House Church members often attend Underground Churches too, so there isn't the anti RCC hate among the House Churches. The anti RCCers are members of the OFFICIAL and registered Three Self Church and no doubt enjoy persecuting the underground church goers
Which means your typical SA newsboard poster is spiritually aligned with the persecutors, not the victims

MS on another thread recommended this wonderful testimony: Worth a CROSS post-
Watching this with the faces blanked out still allows a voice, area targeting that makes me wonder if these brethren are now in sights of the draconian overlords- Mandarin masters still rule in a land whose very written language is based on scripture history
Ancient Chinese pictographs are silent witnesses, like fingerprints, of historical events reported in Genesis. In particular, the details of these word-symbols are clues that point to how the earliest Chinese must have known basic facts of Genesis 1‚Äď11 at the very time their pictographs were invented.
Chinese is not an alphabet-based language‚ÄĒits word characters are both abbreviations of and combinations of pictures.

1st- The President can only pardon for their crimes, he doesn't have the authority without Congress to make them citizens. After their pardons, they are still illegals
2nd- I'm surprised WND didn't note the last line, "yes, we can." Wasn't it Glenn Beck that played that backwards ad nauseam in 2008 because played backwards it sounds like something very evil & blasphemous

Unless they themselves volunteer to help in reducing the human population by ceasing to exist, their words are but noise. Or butt noise. It's always others who are called upon to sacrifice in the cause of wackos.
Things aren't going to change a whole lot [in Cuba] until the last name [of its leaders] changes," Craig Culbreth, the Florida Baptist Convention's lead catalyst for misisons and ministries, told BP. "And it's still Castro. I think there will be some changes. How fast or how many I don't know."
Castro's government was "really hard on the churches during the '60s, '70s and '80s," said Cesar Perez, a Cuban-born American who directs Hispanic ministries at First Baptist Church in Richmond, Ky. "Then because of the economic situation" when the Soviet Union fell and could no longer support Cuba, Castro "just let the churches go a little bit."
Cuba's communist party "is still in control," Perez told Baptist Press, but the easing of restrictions "helped the churches."
The more moderate pressure on churches continued after Castro ceded power to his brother Raul in 2008. Last month, for instance, a Cuban court sentenced the pastor of a 550-member house church to a year of house arrest for holding loud worship services, according to Morning Star News, a news service focusing on Christian persecution worldwide.
President-elect Trump should focus on healing the broken justice system, affirm the rule of law and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton scandals. Pardon for Crimes -Trump set the table for this One might complain about lawless BHO , but lawless Trump needs to rethink the coming administration. - Judicial Watch Calls for Trump Administration Investigation of Hillary Clinton --- Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding reports that President-elect Trump decided that his administration will not pursue investigations into Hillary Clinton‚Äôs email scandal or the Clinton Foundation:
"Donald Trump must commit his administration to a serious, independent investigation of the very serious Clinton national security, email, and pay-to-play scandals. If Mr. Trump‚Äôs appointees continue the Obama administration‚Äôs politicized spiking of a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton, it would be a betrayal of his promise to the American people to ‚Äúdrain the swamp‚ÄĚ of out-of-control corruption in Washington, DC."
"Drain the prisons" or law for "lawless"?? 1Tim1:9- repentance needed.
Jim Lincoln wrote: John of UK, Kennedy wasn't the one with the level head, it was Nikita Khrushchev. He seem to got the missiles out of Turkey and Cuba..
Jim, in the documentary I watched, the US was using spotter planes to take photos of the building program on Cuba, launch sites for missiles. Then they saw the nuclear missiles themselves being brought in by ship from Russia, missiles capable of reaching all parts of America except the far north.
At this point the war cabinet was all in favour of an assault on Cuba. A blockage in the shipping lane came first, to prevent any more missiles being shipped in to Cuba. But JFK prevented an attack on Cuba. Instead, he sent his brother to have talks with Krushchev, and together they negotiated an agreement. Russia would remove all their nuclear weapons from Cuba, if the US would remove all of theirs from Turkey. That plan worked and averted a dreadful war.
I'm only going by what I saw. Footage of the building work on Cuba, along with the huge missiles coming from Russia; the blockage of ships preventing any more being landed; followed by the removal by ship of existing missiles.
Professing Christians are the most prone to oxymorons when trying to explain away issues not welcome to their particular status quo.
For the last 25 years, it has not been uncommon to find more decency, order and common sense in some other communities, than in the 'middle-line' professing church.
Professing Christians 'doing their own thing' and then explaining it away, are samples of self-willed living patterns.
Peter was caught in this same predicament after Christ explained his eminent coming sufferings. Immediately he entered into self-defense mode, as he "began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But (Christ) turned, and said ... Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men"
It is immediately after this episode that Christ postulated the well-known self-denial statement:
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him *deny himself*, and take up his cross, and follow me." Mt 16
Let's be sure that the flesh always makes its self evident. We cannot dress one way and pretend we are different 'inside'. This is an oxymoron because,
"they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh" Rm 8
