Yes, Chris, I always enjoy John UK's comments, and since the battle of the Bible versions has died down (ah, no, I'm not trying to start that up again!) I think I have nothing, at the worse, innocuous things to say to him.
So, John U.K., we're always happy to hear from the Mother country!
Penny, sorry to tell you that folk medicines to fix hernias, melanoma, etc. I knew of fellow who died from that skin cancer, a Seventh-Day Adventist, because of his strange religious/health beliefs. No, even otherwise financially secure people can be ruined by medical bills, that's why the ACA is best thing since sliced bread!
""This middle ground approach is consistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ, church leaders said."
Jesus wrote the Bible and it says "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination"
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
"Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen"
"For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
If a church as an organization doesn't have anything better to do then spend a lot of times on politics then it should stop calling itself a church, what a person does on his own time is his business, but he should think is he using his time to best purpose?

I liked your comment and especially Dorca's comment below. I remember as a youth going to confession. I had to call the priest, father, and he called me son. It started off by saying "bless me father (and that was not my heavenly Father) for I have sinned" Then came the confession, the penance, and then the forgiveness pronounced by the fake father who was behind the little sliding door. No one has any idea of how many hail Mary's I have said.
And, if what the local priest taught, differed from what the husband said, guess whose exegesis won out; not scripture or the husband. So much for if a woman had questions, let her seek the council of her husband.
Now I wonder who is the most responsible, behind the scenes, for destroying the God designed marriages.
Satan's power over media, tv, Hollywood, theatre and soap opera is in evidence yet again.
Anything to attack debase and degrade the Bible and its true believers.
Gradually the Christians will be seen as the enemy of society and decency in western nations, violating the freedom of choice of normal regular homosexuals.
Sodom and Gomorrah will be seen as the poor discriminated downtrodden folks trying to live out a normal life in their own way.
Satan's Liberalism is a toxic mix of evil malevolence and iniquity poisoning every aspect of human life today.
Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

Penny, now I figure even if you're a slick chick you aren't a spring chicken You might remember the start of all the different academies etc., to avoid integration. I wouldn't be surprised that their are still academies and homeschoolers who use these as an excuse to avoid integration, avoiding other races shouldn't be an excuse for nonpublic education. By the way, I pointed out, quite often Meet the 'Brainy Bunch,' family with 7 kids in college by age 12 By the way, to the side one can also see a video of them, anyway, one Southern homeschool family one can visibly see they aren't a racist family, so I'm not trying to stereotype.
Common Core has nothing to do with the Holocaust is taught or not. As in the case you brought up it has to do with the educational leadership of a school district.
Great Sermon! Great pull back into what scripture teaches about submission vs the American ideal of fighting for "our rights". Biblical joy is in submission to Christ and not "our rights". Christ is the prize and our joy.
Great Message, Great Applicable Truths I thought this was a great message with a lot to think about and great applicable truth, but there was only one thing I was very confused about. At the beginning you talked about people saying things aren't okay and how that is not good for us to do, but then that's what the rest of the message was about. I truly am confused about this because I called out someone else who claims to be a believer but talks very sensually about other men that are not her husband and posts them on her Facebook. I thought it was a good thing to do so because in the Facebook for instance she would quote a Bible verse and then turn around and post a picture of a man with sensual comments under it. I told her that was not okay in that was not God honoring. Please give clarification to the first part of the message. Thank you.
The article begins "...A high-profile alliance of conservative Catholics and evangelical Protestants..." They've lost all credence there;evangelicals and catholics ought not to unite for any cause. And homosexual marriage is just further judgment on a nation which has embraced inappropriate heterosexual sins/lewdness. And sadly, a nation which has "sacrificed" its children to the idol of lust. Hopefully, Christians will just say no to the upcoming stupor bowl and all of the other programs that wink at impropriety.
The dead religion "pope" needs to dump his "father/vicar of Christ" title for starters before he can be taken seriously. As far as "J Y's"..."...It is not required for salvation for one who is trusting in Jesus alone for salvation to leave the Catholic Church and unite..." THIS IS ONLY A RECORDING ...lol ...not sure that there is a rational being behind it

dear sister jpw, just throwing out a thought. Not wanting long discussion. If I am wrong please correct me. The implication I get from your statements is that if it wasn't for the U.S. providing cash, weapons, and training to the terrorists that are slaughtering Christians in the Middle East, they wouldn't have any.
Iran and Iraq fought a long civil war, where did they get their weapons? The Arabs and the Jews fought the now famous 6 day war, where did the Arabs get their weapons? Who trained them how to fight? Al-Qaeda sprang up during the 10 year war with Russia in Afghanistan, where did the Afghanies get their weapons? Who taught them how to fight?
The terrorist would have plenty of weapons regardless of U.S. policies.
The other implication is that we trained the terrorist to attack innocent civilians and murder Christians. Again it seems to ignore history (see link below)
I am not exonerating our bad foreign policy, I am saying the slaughtering and hostility would be going on regardless.
You can have final word unless you ask me to respond to what your answer. Thanks.
Cody Louisiana From reading your posts I believe it is safe to say you are a tenderhearted individual, who is quite uncomfortable, or perhaps one who is heartbroken at the very thought someone might be disingenuous and deceived in their profession of faith and actually be lost, unsaved, stll guilty in their sin before Holy God and on their way to hell forever.
Many of us are greatly concerned, if you would allow me use that word, for John Y
Imho he is doing one of the worst things someone could do against a sincere child of God who wants to see the people they know in heaven with them, preying on their kindness to accept them as a Christian, while avoiding making his calling and election sure by demonstrating a real genuine love for the Savior in obedience to His word. John Y professes to be a Christian and yet avoids a real obedience of faith, in what the Bible clearly teaches and in what he himself has some measure of knowledge of regarding the issue of Roman Catholicism and what they teach and practise, that is why many of us from time to time seek to engage him and get him to think what he is doing and examine his life to see if he is real, or just has made an empty sinners prayer to his own hurt.
