There's something about the sinful nature that causes men to hate true Christians. I suppose really it's a hatred for God, which manifests itself in atrocities against believers, simply because they can no longer get their hands on Incarnate God, for two thousand odd years He has been reigning from Heaven.
Of course, at the Second Advent, they will have another opportunity to crucify Him, but we know how that will turn out.
Praise be to God for His grace and mercy, without which we too would be at enmity with Him and all His.
I believe the god of the AA program can be anything you want him to be, an imaginary friend who will be with you at all times.
Whereas when the Living God calls His elect, it is Jehovah, and He can deliver from sin in a moment, without the need for a program. The Great Spirit has His own program, called "Justification and Sanctification", all accomplished by the work of The Third Person of The Trinity.
It would be a good plan if this "higher power" idea were removed from AA.
Great error. I listened to this sermon until minute 37, when the preacher said that it is not true that if we are going to soul winning and people get saved we will have a recompense in heaven. This is seriously wrong. This shows something fundamentally wrong about the concept of soul winning and reward.
There was another case in Britain which actually went the other way, correctly.
Sadly a marriage broke up and the boy was given into the custody of the mother who wanted to bring him up as a girl, and told him he was transgender. She was aided in this by the social workers from the local council.
She informed the school that he was a girl, as well as the family GP, and dressed him up as a girl.
The father hit back through the courts, and a very sensible judge reversed the custody order, the boy was taken away from his mother and was given to his father, and is now happily functioning in his biological sex as a boy.
Tragically, this kind of thing is going to increase in Britain and Europe as well as the United States.
The two doctors from John Hopkins University Hospital who pioneered gender dysphoria work there, and then who through research reversed their position, discovering that over 90% of these children who have gender difficulties when they are young revert happily to their biological gender in puberty and afterwards.
They have been mocked and ridiculed, and their hospital had gone back to "gender reassignment" of children to fit in with the PC crowd.
This transgender revolution, which is nothing more than child abuse, and abuse of vulnerable adult
Hey PP, how's everything? I was wondering how you connect the teaching of Dispensationalism to all that bad stuff you mentioned? The Bible says that the heart is deceitful, desperately wicked, and Romans 1 does a nice job as well as summing up man, none of it involves dispensationalism.
Furthermore, if I may be as so bold as to ask how you can prove that the teaching is exclusively taught by American preachers and not Chinese preachers, Indian preachers, Australian preachers, etc.
These are heavy accusations you're bringing, can you provide some evidence? I'm for God's law and against legalism, our purpose in life is to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves, if you love God you'll try to keep His commandments as best you can out of love, we are to be holy and without blame before Him in love.
I wonder why people say, "They're proud to be an American" I'm not, it's embarrassing, all there is is fornication, adultery, thefts, murders, gays, transgenders, pornography, drunkenness, immodesty, idolatry, cursing, blasphemy, dishonoring of those in authority, even a place that calls itself "sin city" because of it's abominations and they take pleasure in it and blush not having eyes full of adultery.
And this all is vanity, it empty pleasures that store up wrath, that is what our nation is filled with, and the churches have theological illiteracy, it is a thing to be lamented, we always need to be reforming.
He sold more comics than DC and Marvel combined believe it or not, he's got some good one's, and some not so good ones, but he tried to serve God, used the right Bible version The comic books are very informative.
Dispensationalism and anti-nomianism (anti God's Law) as preached by American preachers such as John MacArthur, et al. are responsible for the descent of America into spiritual, moral, economic and political rottenness. Study theonomy. Study Christian Reconstruction. Semper Reformanda. The government is on His shoulders, all realms belong to Christ. If you will not submit yourselves, your families, your government to Christ and His Law, then you will fall into tyranny and slavery. Read the works of RJ Rushdoony for a start. The Church of Jesus will be victorious because of Christ, He reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
Easton Dictionary wrote: PARABLE: ... ordinarily, in a more restricted sense, a comparison of earthly with heavenly things, "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning," as in the parables of our Lord. Instruction by parables has been in use from the earliest times. A large portion of our Lord's public teaching consisted of parables. He himself explains his reasons for this in his answer to the inquiry of the disciples, "Why speakest thou to them in parables?" (Matt. 13:13-15; Mark 4:11, 12; Luke 8:9, 10). He followed in so doing the rule of the divine procedures, as recorded in Matt. 13:13. The parables uttered by our Lord are all recorded in the synoptical (i.e., the first three) Gospels. The fourth Gospel contains no parable properly so called, although the illustration of the good shepherd (John 10:1-16) has all the essential features of a parable....
Wayfarer Pilgrim, an interesting history!
Looking over the article in the Wikipedia, it's really is quite harsh to Chick, but Chick publications had a variety of material, and this tract, http://tinyurl.com/9jnl (Are Roman Catholics Christians?) is definitely no parable, but a very descriptive example of a road a Catholic takes to destruction
Dr. Rugh wrote: This writer of the article, who has a doctorate in religion, states that sexual addiction has existed since the beginning of history, but that āit has been misnamed, mistreated, ignored, or completely undiagnosed.ā He believes that most sexual addicts have been abused and are responding to their abuse with destructive activities. To escape the shame that accompanies their immoral behavior, addicts attempt to escape the realization that their behavior is bad or harmful. The author then proposes a twelve-step process for recovery.
Does the Church need books and articles like the one just mentioned to help Christians deal with immoral behavior? If we believe the Bible the answer must be, no.
Ladybug, My two cents concerning the RC shills, they are related or one in the same individual. There s also a female version of the crew that pops in every once in awhile...does "Dee Center" ring a bell?
No worse than the Evangelicals are doing right now!
Phil Johnson wrote: ...Americaās moral decline has accelerated dramatically since evangelicals became politically aggressive in the late 1970s....they have been remarkably ineffective when it comes to using politics to reverse Americaās moral and spiritual decline. In fact, if you measure their success or failure according to their own stated political ambitions, evangelicals have failed spectacularly in Americaās political arena. Over the past quarter-century, they have not accomplished any of their long-term legislative or constitutional goals.
Worst of all, during that same period of time, the evangelical movement has completely lost its spiritual influence, because the evangelical segment of the church has grown increasingly worldly. Evangelicals have become accustomed to compromise. They have abandoned (or else are in the process of abandoning) virtually all the doctrinal distinctives that made them distinct from Roman Catholics and nominal Christians whose faith amounts to a kind of civil religion. Evangelicals have pretty much forfeited whatever real moral and spiritual authority their movement ever had.

Yes, I keep pointing things out to him that is the case, but so far I have had much luck with it.
