A help and encouragement I have listened to this sermon multiple times. It had been a help and encouragement to me to keep going to keep doing the next right thing rather than just what I want to do.
I.E., the person who was miffed was Sean Spicer who wasn't with this group, being a Catholic he wanted to meet the Pope and of course, Mrs. Trump also a Catholic no doubt got what she wished for an audience with the Pope. So, there are quite a few Catholics in the Trump group, and soon no doubt Newt Gingrich will be in Rome with his wife when she becomes the American Ambassador to the Vatican,
Steven R. Weisman wrote: Senator Ernest F. Hollings, Democrat of South Carolina and and a candidate for his party's Presidential nomination, said he would oppose elevating the special representative to the rank of ambassador. ''It's in violation of the First Amendment and sets a bad precedent,'' he said.
White House officials, however, said they foresaw little difficulty in sustaining today's action or winning Senate confirmation for Mr. Wilson.
Gen 16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."
= Ishmael's children are certainly wild and their hand is raised against everybody. Just as God predicted it would be.
Like Judas the task they have been given by divine providence is an evil one.
But although they are raised to be a threat to our ways they will fail against the seed of Isaac the son of promise.
Rom 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth)
I'm late to the party on this, but I'll add a thought, the Pharisees, Sadducies, scribes, never challenged Jesus concerning His lineage, now they weren't stupid, no doubt they examined the records, but they never challenged Him on the point.
Now, that tells me that they knew why the argument was weak and never brought it up.
The reason I am glad they are doing this is for courage to others dealing with similar situations going forward. If I remember my facts correctly, the brother came forward to his father asking for help. That is how the parents found out about it. I believe he was 14 or 15. He touched their breasts while they were sleeping. He didn't have sex with them or touch the other private areas. So, I don't believe the girls really remember the acts. It was really blown out of proportion.
The problem is now that young men like him will be less likely to confide with others knowing that it could become the craziness that happened to the Duggers. Girls (or boys), who are the victims, now have less incentive as well. Will they have to relive their experience and humiliation through the taunts and looks of others who find out about it? It is just the case that fewer children will want to reveal what their going through or what has happened to them if the threat of it being laid out for all to see is there even if they are given assurances other wise. That is why this case is so important.
John Y, their is no need for any Pope Biblically speaking, why does one need a Pope, especially if one has been called out of darkness to the newness of eternal life that is solely through Christ alone & no other alone. John Y, for one who claims Christ as salvation your holding onto in changing for reform through another People, isn't one who is seeking the mind of Christ through His written word, as any Pope from Rome is indifferent to the scriptures amen.
1 Pet 2:9-10 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Some moreso than others, but especially some of the newer ones that have made God without gender, or the NIV types, etc. The popular theory and arguments for an antiquated King James is that older texts found since, must be more accurate texts. Not necessarily so. Even way back then, during the age of papyrus and scrolls, Satan was working hard on corrupting God's Word which the Bible itself warns of, even back then. Critical text, Codec Vaticanus, Sinaticus, Wescott and Horts Greek New Testament, etc, etc. I'll always stick with the Textus Receptus, the received text, the King James for accuracies sake. A couple of others are acceptable, but I like the language and flow of the King James, find it easier for memory work, and know that it'll never change. For anyone who may think the various translations don't matter, do some comparison studys on the differences.
Amen Christopher! Anyone who does their own research on the matter will inevitably come to the same conclusions.
John for Jesus wrote: I understand that every woman has a dad, therefore, isn't this sin nature passed down to them and if so, didn't that mean Jesus would have also had one? If a sin nature was such a thing. To say Jesus didn't have an earthly father isn't enough because Mary was still a sinner. If it was passed on through men only, well then Jesus had a granddad. I was wondering the biblical reasons people believe sin is passed down through heredity, only by men.
The problem you have, John, is that you are ignoring scriptures given you, which counter your argument, therefore you hastily sweep them away with a lol, which is what your preacher's technique is.
The best way is always to say that God's word is true, let us see what it is saying, because God's word is the word of God not men.
In other words, we ask the question: "What does God say about this?"
If you keep going and seek the Lord, you will eventually arrive at Federalism, which puts every person into one of only two camps:
IN ADAM = LOST (and dead to God) IN CHRIST = SAVED (and alive unto God)
Birth puts us "in Adam". New birth puts us "in Christ".
Francis needs to be replaced with a conservative Pope who will clean house and remove from the priesthood all the liberal priests, Bishops and Cardinals and excommunicate all the liberal Catholic laity so that there are just conservative priests, Bishops, Cardinals and laity left in the Catholic Church.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. - 1 Peter 2:9-12
