if ever a story illustrates how far the 501c3 corporations posing as churches have fallen is to see the wrath of the system on this man of God, in jail for 10 yrs for withdrawing money out of his bank account and now new trumped up charges. He knew the corruption of the age and was teaching on it. to see he is now in isolation is a sad thing to hear. this man of God who is leading so many to Christ...
used as a scapegoat, they are making it clear church.... conform to them and remain silent to their corruption, corporatize your churches and make them the head.
DEM, since its only been 6 years since you made your comment, you might still be around looking at stuff here. Dr Rugh has just done some sermons on the differences between dispensational and Covenantal (sp?) interpretation methods on the Bible. Now, the commentary to the sermons that I made are just so so. Especially my second one since I left out a couple of words I see, but I'll leave it to you to fill in the blanks. My comment to the second sermon contains some URLs which will be quite handy on seeing the differences. The sermons themselves are quite detailed, and perhaps one of the best comparisons of the two theological camps that you can find on audio. Now there aren't that many comparisons in audio, but still these are good. So the URLs for the sermons and the comments are to be found, The Covenants of Scripture, part 1 and here, The Covenants of Scripture, part 2 ( the one with the URLs).

the homeless can be brought into our homes as the Lord leads.
Quote from article; "The Argentinian-born pope, who has often criticized orthodox market economics for fostering unfairness and inequality, said people were forced to work long hours, sometimes in the black economy, for a few hundred euros a month"
Our local pope seems to have a streak of socialism in him. He would make a great buddy for Obama on these politics.
Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
Have your 2.6.5 version of SA and 4.1.2 Android. The Chromecast option appears on webcast pages but the app is not making the connection with my Chromecast device which is on and running on the TV. Can you provide any suggestions that might correct this problem? P.S. I was initially getting a message saying "unable to find device" and a suggestion to look for a button in upper left of page. There never was a button appearing there and the last few times of trying, I no longer get the message, just a page with picture of Chromecast device with listing of broadcasters name below the picture.
By removing the qualified and experience farmers and replacing them with unskilled uneducated people Mugabe ruined a huge and productive industry which supported his nation.
Considering the amount of ExPats employed around the world these countries have a lot to learn about industry and the expertise required to run it. But this will take some generations and changes to culture to make it effective.
Dr David Liepert Canadian Muslim leader wrote this article and says quote - "Bottom line, I have served God and loved Jesus my entire life, and I followed Jesus into Islam when I realized I became a worse man by worshipping Him and a better man by following him."
Dr Liepert lost Christ the Son of God by replacing Him with a mortal.
There are some very strange religious conclusions on earth and they give rise to heresy and blindness. Faith is the only solution and that faith is the gift of God - Nothing to do with human conclusions.
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
"Lillback points out that the Founding Fathers specifically included four references to God in the Declaration of Independence and opines that they are indications that more trust needs to be put into God when it comes to leading and governing a nation that is supposed to be free of tyranny.
Lillback added that God is also present in the Constitution, although others might disagree. Things such as the president having the option to take Sundays for sabbath and the president having to swear on the Bible when he takes his oath of office are clear reminders of how the Founding Fathers intended for the light of God to help drive the success of the nation, and protect it from human imperfection.
Some people have said that the Constitution is a godless constitution, but it's actually remarkably Christian in many ways," Lillback asserted."

Well as long as we stand up in the public square and proclaim the gospel. Christ is God in the flesh who took on humanity, lived a perfect life, was punished on the cross in our stead and rose for our justification, then I donâ€™t object. The problem is that will never happen in any country. Also, if the author thought this was a Christian nation, then why was the name of Christ excluded from any of the documents?
