Sodomites being allowed to marry, millions of babies slaughtered, more and more apostare churches, an interactive monument to Satan being considered alongside a Ten Commandments monument. God's patience must be getting very thin.
Atonement Definite yet llimited. This is an excellent dissection of our Lord's Atonement. Particularly in highlighting that the atonement may be limited in scope but not in power and therefore completion of his chosen people. This is consistent with Philippians where we are told "He will complete the good work He began in you". The "He" is the key pronoun not the "you". This is very reassuring as the "you" is a shaky character that still consists of that slimy character the "Flesh". Oh Blessed Day ... When we see Him we shall be like Him ! (1 John) The "Him" is the key pronoun here as well not the "we". Thank Him! Praise Him! Fairest Lord Jesus! And thank you pastor and brother for adding clarity to the atonement.
By a strange coincidence, I bought a bottle of aloe vera to drink yesterday. It is a most remarkable natural product, designed by God of course. I expect that Luke the Physician experimented with plants and herbs to find ones with healing properties.
The more that people find natural product cures, or relief from pain, the less they trust the medical profession, who generally only deal with the symptoms not the cause.
For eg. How many people take antacids from the chemist every day of their life to cure an acid stomach? Answer: LOTS! But tell them what the cause is, and how they can live without the pain, and they look at you like you're some sort of idiot.
A lot of the pains experienced by humans are caused by the nonsensical diet they are on. Add a dozen tablets from the doctor to that, and you have a recipe for turning into something God never designed.
And it will not do to shout "Glory to God for my arthritis" when such a condition was caused by eating unhealthy foods.
Now a little word to the sceptics. I know I'm right, so don't bother slamming me. Instead, do some research, and experiment like St Luke did. Try a vegan diet for one month and see the difference. Prove it to yourself. And then Praise God for the natural way.
Aren't volunteer firefighters unpaid? The word volunteer usually denotes that an individual volunteering to do some type of work is not paid for doing that work and thus not an employee of a particular company or organization.
