free Books wrote: The Hyles Effect: free book : pdf download:Cloud This book documents the life and ministry of Jack Hyles, who pastored First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, for 42 years, and Jack Schaap, who took over the pastorate of the church when his father-in-law died in 2001. But the book is not merely about two men. It is a warning about a cultic model of ministry that has spread very far. Hyles set the pattern for errors that are still rampant. And the book is a positive call to build biblical churches.
Just giving it a quick perusal it looks quite good.
I will also refer to the articles that was in my first message, and as I pointed out even a broader problem than that of Hyle's legacy that of adulterous pastors, for which I gave two references in the message before yours, and I would add, Wise Men Live Out God's Wisdom a very good sermon on adultery, and one can surmise from it, why does one want a fool for a pastor?

McCausland wrote: Though it is basic that "it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe" the forwarding of the faith may include personal witness, the publishing of books, hosting conferences, or building visual witness aids as a Creation Theme Park. The real issue has to do with flaws in motives, agendas, personal character and aims, purpose, or methods of financing it...
Excellent statement, the whole thing which I didn't repeat.

While this can be interesting, my EspaĂ±ol has heavy coating of rust on it, and then Portuguese is somewhat different than Spanish, means this site doesn't have much attraction to me.
Unfortunately, these people are probably not Evangelicals

Mike, I wasn't quite correct, about my not saying nothing complimentary about Hillary, Hmm, I don't see too much complimentary in the SA thread, http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=42153&SID=419152350391 (Hillary Clinton, social gospel Methodist to the core). I think if you'll go to this link you'll won't just be able to pop back to this thread, depending on your browser? Open it in a separate tab and don't try to post to both threads at once!) I thought I said something really kind about Hilly, but I couldn't find it in that thread. I must be really against having a nanny for a leader and Billy as First Philander of the country. But at least she's a Protestant -- of sorts. All I said in that thread though, I don't see any reason to change. Both Republicans and Democrats have to work harder at getting a centrist candidate, with conservative moral values.

Nope, but good try. Anyone else want to have a crack at it?

It's interesting. Back in the 70s I used to work in a biker bar as a bouncer, and later as a musician. If this technology had been used there and then with people taking pictures of you and posting them, and tweeting about you. That would have only happened once. Then they would have never been able to text aging. Unless they learned to do it with their toes. As wild as I was in those days, the cliental scared me. The pendulum has certainly swung too far in the other direction.

When did I say anything nice about Hillary? I don't remember anything. but considering the bozos that the Republicans are running, no doubt the next time we address the president a new one, it will be Madam President. I don't know anything about Bernie, and I'm trying to avoid the topic as long as possible.
Yes, that's what I mean. So why complain about Republicans' moral failures? Is it because they fail at some point, whereas Democrats are just that way to start with?
Bernie is an openly declared socialist. So it maybe it's for show he's running against Hillary.

See you had to correct yourself on that first part. Not many people would do that. Still, the advice of proverbs is fitting "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it (or investigates it) it is filly and shame unto him" Here is a link to the picture: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/pictures/view/1069962/
