"Clinton at Al Smith Dinner: âIn Order to Achieve Salvation, We Need Both Faith and Good Worksâ"
Clearly she was pandering to the Catholics..... probably coached by her Jesuit running mate what to say to tickle ears. In most professions this practice is called prostituting one self for personal gain. Seems to fit here nicely. Soon to be Madam President. Jimmy Lincoln will be so proud, tripping all over his tongue.
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel; which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, if any man preach any other gospel unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:6-9) AV. "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might bear with him" (2 Corinthians 11:3, 4) AV
A moving, beautiful Sermon! Your preaching is always meaningful but this subject, especially so for me. I am like many women in this nation, sinful, living in subjection and shame, much of my own making. But then the Lord came and found me. But for Jesus I'd still be living in darkness and deadness, but He came for me, just like He came for her. On purpose. With intent to KNOW her and more importantly that she should know and worship Him. How I love to hear the story. Thank you for telling it so well.

I could take some issue with that, but instead-
The song is about what is it we place our trust in, the solid Rock, which is Christ, or anything else, which is sinking sand. Lest we be speaking past one another here is the refrain:
"On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand."
Are either of these statements false doctrine? Do they contradict Scripture in any way?

Celebrate? I would suggest mourning. Evil will grow, and this present darkness will be remembered as the good old days. But I'm not as bound by determinism as some, so perhaps she will lose. Maybe the country will exorcise her once and for all, and that would be a good thing. At least I will vote against her.
Luke 13:11-13 KJV (11) And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. (12) And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. (13) And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
Luke 13:16 KJV (16) And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
Luke 8:28-30 KJV (28) When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. (29) (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) (30) And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.
Devils in the world are causing much destruction and death today.
Hi Mike, have some been saying that? I think it sure would be nice, and may have been possible in our early years, but certainly not in this brave, new age. What a mess. No, we're not voting for a head of a church.

A guy (part of Repent America) who lives nearly 100 years after Spurgeon made up the quote which is in Spurgeon's writings???? Maybe his moniker is suggesting he made the statement tongue in cheek
"Let us, whenever we shall have the opportunity of using the right of voting, use it as in the sight of Almighty God, knowing that for everything we shall be brought into account, and for that amongst the rest, seeing that we are entrusted with it." CHS
Perhaps a fair assessment of Hilly. You forget I'm not a fan of hers either, but much less of a fan, Donald "the Animal" Trump. So, how are you going to celebrate Hilly's victory after she's elected?
Well back to the topic of the thread
John MacArthur said or, wrote: And I don't care whether - I asked somebody this last time. I said, "What is worse, to tell a white lie or to be infested with seven devils?" "Oh, seven devils!" I said, "Why is it worse?" Well, he wasn't too sure. I'm not so sure it makes any difference; it's all sin. So how do you get rid of the problem that you get with telling a lie? Simply confess it, turn from it, repent from it. How do you get rid of the same problem with seven devils? Same thing: Submit to the Holy Spirit, confess your sin, repent, and allow the Spirit of God to cleanse your life, and off you go. The same thing.
So don't ever get the idea that if all these devils get to you, you're gonna be stuck and you're gonna have to have some great big eight-hour sweat session to get rid of 'em. That's something you can take care of in your own life. Let a man examine himself. These people were fellowshipping with demons, but they had the resources within them to have victory over Satan.
Matthew 7:21-27 KJV (21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (24) Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: (25) And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. (26) And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: (27) And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Now if you think about it, we rightly joy in being justified through faith. The refrain is correct in that. But where it went wrong was in getting Matt 7 wrong. That is all about works, obeying Christ.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Humor has to have an element of truth, Mike. I couldn't say that about Hillary because she doesn't have an obscene mouth -- at least not in public-- but the Donald certainly has shown one of the tell-tell signs of Demon possession--a foul mouth. ---
Therein lies the problem, Jim. At least with him, there are no pretensions, as with Hillary. She has a number of former co-workers assigning her a broomstick. A real tell-tale sign, perhaps?
John UK wrote: Brother Mike, It is a shame you came up with a hymn which misinterprets scripture in the refrain. Many hymns of men do that, which is why different denominations use different hymnbooks, to suit their theology. This is why singing the word of God is so unifying. The Jews only sang the Psalms. Sure, you can misinterpret the Psalms, but at least the Psalms are correct, whereas many hymns are rank heresy. Just sayin' bro.
You'll have to explain, bro. I see no misinterpretation.
The refrain: "On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand."
Psalm 40:2 "He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my going."
What is the rock David is talking about? If his feet are set upon this rock, he must be standing upon it, methinks. All other ground is sinking sand, no?
Matthew 7:26 "And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand"
Psalm 62:6 "He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved."
Why will he not be moved? Because his feet are on the solid Rock.
