Even SA moderators remove posts with Biblical Passages that readers of this website find offensive, I should know as I often have had those posts removed. And I never came close to posting the events of the Levites concubine from Bethlehemjudah.
There is change within a species over time,but we have never observed through our eyes or the fossil record a change from one species becoming a different one. We should have plenty of evidence if this was true. In fact every morning we should trip over these intermediate species. If it took 4 billion yrs then this would be true. But there is NO evidence of any of these species.
NASHVILLE (BP) -- NBC has pulled the hit series "A.D. The Bible Continues" in response to media reports alleging its heroes were sinners.
Upon examination NBC found Adam & Eve bring death on us all by direct disobedience to God's word Gen 3 Noah, gen 9:21 got drunk Lot lay with his daughters in a drunken stupor Gen 19:26 Abraham lied and endangered Sarah through cowardice. And has a child abuse allegation involving offering Isaac on Mt Moriah. Gen 22! Moses, ex 2:11-15 killed a man The Judges 19 horror is way past network standards. David&Bathsheba...adultery by the author of the Psalms? &also Dave had the husband killed 2 Samuel:11 Peter lied & abandoned Jesus to His death. Thomas stubbornly refused to trust that Jesus the Lord was risen. Paul was Saul the persecuter of innocents-who approved Steven's murder: changed by the resurrected Christ on the road to Damascus acts 9:1-19 Peter backslid on acceptance of Gentiles& the age of grace & was rebuked to his face by Paul. See Galatians 2:11
All these signs of hypocrisy were clear signs that NBC had to drop the biblical series. More info
I travel for business, and often would stop in at one PCUSA Wed night Bible study because it was convenient. It was a good group with an retired Pastor, a seminary grad, son of a Pastor and the usual group of those that like these studies for socializing. My last visit, I brought up this issue and asked how they would respond. I was met with silence and a few dirty looks from the liberal women, then the Church Pastor DEFENDED the apostasy. Further, he said the PCUSA will vote to specifically affirm gay marriage, rather than the vague wording they have now
Its stunning to watch the company man just trumpet what he is told. The synod could tell him the sky was pink, and he would support it for his job
from the article 'Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, explains what is happening to the PCUSA with one word: apostasy. ...Graham made it loud and clear that the PCUSA's decision to part from God's Word was nothing less than an all-out rejection of His Word and an embrace of society's accepted sinful behavior.
Knox said in the (loonng)link provided earlier. "[Common Objections Answered]
First, they do object the examples of Deborah, and of Huldah, the prophetesses, of whom the one judged Israel, and the other, by all appearance, did teach and exhort (Judges 4; 2 Chron. 34:20-28).
Secondarily, they do object the law made by Moses for the daughters of Zelophehad (Num. 27:1-12).
Thirdly, the consent of the estates of such realms as have approved the empire and regiment of women.
And last, the long custom which has received the regiment of women, their valiant acts and prosperity, together with some papistical laws which have confirmed the same.
To the first I answer, that particular examples do establish no common law. The causes were known to God alone, why he took the spirit of wisdom and force from all men of those ages; and did so mightily assist women against nature, and against his ordinary course; that the one he made a deliverer to his afflicted people Israel, and to the other he gave not only perseverance in the true religion, when the most part of men had declined from the same, but also to her he gave the spirit of prophecy, to assure King Josiah ..." Etc. worth the read.
All Catholics in Ireland and the United States who support homosexuality, abortion and artificial birth control should be told by their Archbishops to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against homosexuality, abortion and artificial birth control or be excommunicated. Notice that support of homosexuality, abortion and artificial birth control should be the only Catholic doctrines that one should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church for supporting. Disagreeing with other Catholic doctrines should not be grounds for excommunication.
In May 2014 I was in Los Angeles and had no knowledge of the different American denominations. There was a United Methodist right outside the hotel, but they had a massive sign outside declaring their support of homosexuality :/ So I ended up getting the train to a PCUSA church, because I foolishly thought a Presbyterian church would be somewhat better... If I got again I'll be sure to do proper research in advance!!
Those stupid Democrats(Politicians and voters) are demon influenced for wanting more Muslims to come into the United States instead of wanting to kick out all Muslims from the United States even those Muslims that were born here. Nobody in their right mind would want Muslims in this country.
NB... Excellent idea. Downsizing lifestyle; instead of buying things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like... My wife has stayed home and homeschooled all of our children; could we have had nicer things if she worked? Sure. But I'd rather have nicer kids.
Nameless, you have it right. People do t believe facts, they believe what they are told. One of the things we discuss in Sociology is Obama's '08 election; he had hundreds of volunteer workers that had thousands of online log-ins... They were on social media constantly praising Obama, and denigrating McCain. The masses looked at all of the support and said to themselves, "Wow, everyone likes this guy. They all want to vote for him. I should too..." It was a page directly from Kinsey's book, who told people that perversion was common, so everyone wanted to be perverted: which ushered in the free love '60's and gay '70's...
The Romish church not being Christian, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No., is greatly responsible for the various evils that happen in countries that this organization predominates. It encourages homosexuality, e.g., " In their view, the Church hates and discriminates homosexuals. Nothing is further from the truth. We can sum up the Catholic teaching on homosexuality in a few words: homosexual acts are wrong but we must love and support those who have homosexual tendencies. Furthermore, the position held by the Catholic Church is by far more respecting of the dignity of the human person than the one defended by the homosexual ideology. " excerpt from What does the Catholic Church teach on homosexuality? no doubt they had the same view of people, that is priests, who molest children.
That's why I'm glad I believe in the biblical baptism of the Holy Spirit. People can't get their grubby hands on it and pollute it. There is no need to argue how to administer it or to whom because it is done by God at faith.
