Happily, Edwards' generation was not influenced by the 'literal' interpretation of the OT due to Dispensationalism. Perhaps this is the reason for the sizeable spiritual input of his approach.
Yes, precious and heart warming. This is no cold doctrinal hot potato, but something most precious. The general apostasy appears on the surface to be giving the church more freedoms, but the end result will be spiritual decline and worsening apostasy.
God is good, and says and does everything for our good. The Christian Sabbath is not another law to keep, but a means to a great end: to rest the body from six days of working, and to engage - unfettered by the necessary dealings in the world - with our God, having spiritual exercises, which maintains our spiritual life, preparing us for another week of life in this world, filled with the Spirit, and bearing the fruit of the Spirit, loving God and our neighbour, shining our light in this dark world, bringing forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixtyfold, and some an hundredfold.
Ok Allen. I pray an opportunity comes for your family to fix that. A bible professor here in China will take me to a Christian dentist tomorrow. The local Seven Day Adventist say the can help a little with the cost, I am blessed.

There is not a place on earth that doesn't have Christians or willl have them. Man doesn't decide the when and where of Christ's kingdom, none can stay the hand of God. I pray the "vicar" would see through faith and not with his eyes.

Gorsuch will undoubtedly be asked his opinions about common social issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage, say court watchers. But they also expect Senate Democrats to poke and prod the judge with questions about his controversial opinions on executive power as well as his opposition to doctor-assisted suicide. All in all, it looks likely that there will be an effort to paint Gorsuch as a staunch conservative friendly to big business and a foe of the little guy.
Rev. Bassam M. Madany wrote: To draw attention to the plight of Iraqi Christians at this particular time does not imply that persecution is a new phenomenon for Eastern Christians. Ever since the invasion of the Levant, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and North Africa by Arab-Islamic forces, the condition of the native Christian and Jewish populations has been very precarious. The Islamic invaders instituted Shari‚Äôa Law in the lands they conquered and the followers of Christianity and Judaism were subjected to draconian measures meant to ‚Äúhumble‚ÄĚ them, and restrict their religious and civil freedoms. So the problem for Christians living under Islam has been present for 1400 years. But now in the 21st century, with the marvels and speed of world-wide communication, especially the Internet, more people are becoming aware of the persecution of Christians in the Arab world, and specifically in Iraq.
I did a search on 'etymology of bigot' and found that some think it comes from an old Germanic oath 'by God'. So with that in mind I can agree with English Rose and say I'll stand by God and His opinion of marriage. Call me a bigot, too.
The Ripon Society is more akin to the aristocracy of the RNC. That is the warrior class of the RNC, guys who seen the elephant and lived to talk about it. The RNC of old had a pedigree, albeit warts and all. Pro business, pro USA, anti communist, but fiscally conservative and willing to make government work within the boundaries of the constitution. We don't have that on either political party in the span of 17 years. We took from Reagan's 4 trillion in debt to 20 trillion in a generation. And that's where we are, everyone wants everything and no one seems to want to say stop spending.
Whenever I got on trouble as a boy, I was exiled to hard labor on the family farm. The time was the early 70s. I hated it back then, the farmwork. However, looking back, I now appreciate hard work and the male role models of my father, uncles, and Grandpa. They made a man out of me. Also, at that time, the closet homosexuals came from town, from the well-to-do families.
