I really need to do a blog post on this whole sordid matter... Anyway, here's a link to an article at CP which really nails it for me regarding Josh Duggar's apology which I found to be frightfully lacking in substance:
Rome is using it's same old tried and true tactics through professing Christendom. "Can't we all just get along"? The grand wizard of the cult is donning his evangelical disguise which has proven so successful that many of the well-known hirelings are falling all over themselves to bow the knee to Baal and kiss him.
Outstanding Sermon! This sermon gives the highlights of what it means to be in Spiritual Warfare for Christians. As he points out that since the 1960s, our culture has become more strongly opposed to the principles of Holy Scripture, and even our churches have become weaker in proclaiming the Gospel. There are excellent points that we as Christians should be more familiar with and have answers to the problems Satan creates. I see the secular answers being more readily accepted without any consideration of the Holy Bible. We are truly in dangerous waters for our nation, and worldwide.
Great Sermon! Once more, Pastor Gary, a message that feeds God's sheep with the truth. How blessed we are.
We also were blessed in the past by Pastor Henry Mahan's sermons.
Thank you for your faithfulness in bringing the truth of God.
Repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
God strengthen you in your ministry.
Thanks,Unprofitable but in order for us to help our brother remove the speck from his eye,we must first judge it to be something which must be removed in the first place. I don't think that's tantamount to self-righteousness. If we love God,we will want ourselves and our brothers and sisters to put away that which is unwholesome and destructive. But for the grace of God,go I. I would like to see Christians to be consistently zealous when it comes to protesting sexual sin-whatever its form. I can easily understand the homosexual agenda as Judgment on us all (myself included). Probably most all of us have contributed to the decadent society in which we find ourselves today. It's when we don't take heed and repent that we find ourselves ineffective. God cannot be pleased with this country and He has been ever so patient.
Ultimately what Satan is doing with this one is seeking to discredit the Bible. This will subsequently nullify the church and destroy the witness of truth. But the real protagonist in this play is the Liberal church, eg: Anglican, Episcopalian, Methodist, PCUSA, and other Liberals. The Liberal church has already ditched the Bible (it is mythology) so to them it is irrelevant. One of their heretical fictions is that man is and can progress to a 'more' godly state.
""In liberal Christian teaching, which is not Christian at all, man‚Äôs reason is stressed and is treated as the final authority. Liberal theologians seek to reconcile Christianity with secular science and modern thinking. In doing so, they treat science as all-knowing and the Bible as fable-laden and false. Genesis‚Äô early chapters are reduced to poetry or fantasy, having a message, but not to be taken literally (in spite of Jesus‚Äô having spoken of those early chapters in literal terms). Mankind is not seen as totally depraved, and thus liberal theologians have an optimistic view of the future of mankind.""

"Hate speech" stems from the bible-myth according to Liberals. These evil reprobates are the real enemy.
Rubio,seemingly,has Catholic ties.His name and birthplace kind of suggests that. We can pray that he would hear God's word rightly divided and praise God that His Word NEVER goes out void! Nor will it be compromised-en vogue or out.
@@@@ Just look at what the UK Methodists have been up to. Looks as though Wesley's little Roman Catholic Arminian adventure includes a great deal more than salvation by works. Perhaps the RCC theology was contaminated with the disease of paedophilia?
#Quote; "The UK's Methodist Church has made a public apology after an investigation uncovered reports of nearly 2,000 alleged abusers - including 914 allegations involving sexual abuse.
An independent inquiry looked at the Church's response to complaints and allegations dating back to 1950.
General secretary, the Revd Dr Martyn Atkins, said abuse was "a deep source of grief and shame to the Church".
A law firm representing some of the victims welcomed the apology." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32909444

May the living God have mercy on people like myself who were born into this toxic religion and may they find true redemption in Christ Alone by faith alone.

Against ecumenism Let me be clear here I do not believe I would have been able to come withing miles of what I was able to put into words apart from the praying of God's people
It is a wonderful humbling thing to be part of the family of God and a great encouragement to me that I have brothers and sisters who love Catholic people and "hurt" to see them and so many others who are every bit as lost saved as well.
Powerful Sermon! This sermon will open our eyes to see how great and loving our God is -- even
forgiving us time after time for our sinning daily. His patience and Grace gives us so much more than we deserve, but He is a jealous God for our salvation and following Him. This applies to today as much as it did in Hosea's days.
GSTexas please see the commentary for Galatians 3:16 of JFB, part of which,
JFB wrote: ... promises--plural, because the same promise was often repeated ( Gen 12:3, 7 15:5, 18 17:7 22:18 ), and because it involved many things; earthly blessings to the literal children of Abraham in Canaan, and spiritual and heavenly blessings to his spiritual children; but both promised to Christ,...
JFB again wrote: Eph 2:12 ... ¬† ¬† ¬† covenants of promise‚ÄĒrather, ".¬†.¬†. of the promise," namely, "to thee and thy seed will I give this land" (Ro 9:4,Ga 3:16). The plural implies the several renewals of the covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and with the whole people at Sinai [ALFORD]. "The promise" is singular, to signify that the covenant, in reality, and substantially, is one and the same at all times, but only different in its accidents and external circumstances (compare Heb 1:1, "at sundry times and in divers manners").

the fundamental problem: How can you determine if there‚Äôs a right to a thing before determining what that thing is? Are the courts supposed to say, ‚ÄúThere is a right ... to we know not what‚ÄĚ? Thus, logically, before judges could rule that a same-sex couple has a right to ‚Äúmarry,‚ÄĚ they would have to rule that marriage is something other than what millennia of tradition dictate. This is clearly above their ‚Äúpay grade‚ÄĚ philosophically and, insofar as government is involved at all, is the role of state legislatures legally.
And being a rights-proclaiming, knot-tying know-nothing is quite convenient here. Since definitions limit and exclude, prom¬≠ulgating their own would rob faux-marriage proponents of an illusory high road: The notion they stand for equality while traditionalists are exclusive and discriminatory. For then they also would be discriminating ‚ÄĒ against whatever didn‚Äôt meet their definition. Thus, it‚Äôs wholly false to say leftists are redefining marriage. Nay. They are ‚Äúundefining‚ÄĚ it. This reality puts the lie to faux-marriage advocates‚Äô claims that their actions won‚Äôt lead to legal recognition of polygamy and other conceptions of ‚Äúmarriage.‚ÄĚ tradition=‚Äúdemocracy extended through time‚ÄĚ More important: marriage is divinely ordained as a male-female union
