John Y writes: why would I want to become Protestant
Why would you want to remain in a "church" that Gods word calls accursed?
Galatians 1:8-9 "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."
Many of Gods elect are leaving these apostate "churches" and worshiping at home, while praying for the Lord to raise up preachers that will in Holy Ghost boldness not be afraid to proclaim the Gospel of JesusChrist. SBC has for the most part gone the humanistic, social, "gospel" route which is no gospel at all. Theyare also very ecumenical, joining hands with popery and Mormonism , calling them Christians.
people are saying the antibiotic era is ending, this is part of the Darwin legacy that is ending. even doctors now are admitting that probiotics are necessary, it hasn't caught up with them yet that traditional foods were prepared that very way....

Thnak you, Penny.
1 Tim 1:5-6 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to IDLE TALK, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.
1 Tim 1:15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
1 Tim 2:1-4 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
IMHO as a consideration, perhaps we ought to humbly gather together, or go into our prayer closets, to talk to God about all this, and mournfully pour out our hearts for the lost, and even the religious elites who seems so ignorant of Holy God.

Anyone who isn't mentally deranged knows that the top button on a mens dress shirt isn't even suppose to be used because the top button on a men's dress shirt is a spare in the event that any other button on the men's dress shirt falls off. Anyone who's not out of their mind and knows anything about men's dress shirts knows that the top button on a men's dress shirt isn't there to button the top of the men's dress shirt, but is there in the event that a button ever falls off of the men's dress shirt. Why would anyone who knows anything about men's dress shirts ever button the top button thats only there for a spare? : ) Sorry...no harm intended.
downright scary, Christopher can read John Y thoughts and articulate them quite well. Now, if only he can reverse the process and get John Y to grasp his understanding of Catholicism.
Wait, how could this happen during the Obama administration?? I thought he was going to help the middle class. The middle class and poor are suffering under the current administration and Jimbo posted a link to the article??? btw SteveR, excellent point
"The scientific establishment recoiled in horror when a recent poll revealed a majority of Americans doubt the truth of Darwinâ€™s evolutionary theory"
Aaaww what a shame poor scientists????
On the other hand this is where all the reprobates lie both scientists and non ... "Eph 4:17 .... in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:"
The Christian alternative is:- "Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
Mike wrote: So what does this mean? If Paul had baptized, that would have been political?
Perhaps he is referring to the verses 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Thus Jim is stating that we are the "foolish and base" things of the world - Unlike the intelligent and noble politicians.
"becoming friends with gay people regardless of whether Christians believe their sexuality aligns with the Bible"
There is NO absolutely NO diversification of sexuality in Scripture. There is "natural" and "Unnatural." Romans 1: 26 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:"
Therefore this "panel" of Baptists are unbiblical and reprobate.
Homosexual behaviour is sin. Homosexual behaviour is abomination.
Lev 20:13 "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."
Get back to the Bible or stop calling yourselves Christian.
It's a gnostic interpretation of 1 Corinth ins 1. Someone could just as well apply it to any professional, not just the office of civil minister. JL is miles away from orthodoxy and both the Westminster and London Baptist confessional standards.
DanUSA I don't understand why you made a comment about haters of the KJV as the only disdain for it came from just one commentator and the article is not anti-KJV. Also, there are plenty of people with Bibles in languages other than English are you saying those people don't have the Scriptures?
