How to read the Bible wrote: Poor Michael. Still in conflict with
I know, I know zealous one eyed hyper-Calvinists who act like they have somekind of special gnostic knowledge and therefore they and they alone speak for God (kind of reminds me of the Popes of the RCC)
Thanks for the reminder
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold (suppress) the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools .... Romans 1:18-22 kjv
There is of course more, but then oh my you might actually have to be willing to humble yourself and listen, and think honestly
btw to be honest with you: the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness
Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote: Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
"We recorded all of this in a video that will stun the American people as to how militant and intolerant the homosexual agenda is:"
It should be no surprise to the Christian that the world and its sodomite agenda is intolerant of all things Bible. What Satan and his accomplice sin are doing is fighting against God and Christ and the Name of Jesus. Anything done in the name of Jesus as the Bible teaches is attacked by Satan and his followers the reprobates in the world. God destroyed Satan's cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and he has always been angry about that. God being consistent in justice and righteousness will destroy this modern Sodom and Gomorrah too.
But as always the victory is in Christ.
God states~ Psalm 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. 2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. 3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
Bert, of course the trend setters the American Episcopalian Church (q.v., When Will They Ever Learn? Mainline Decline in Perspective ) of the Anglican Communion have gone done the road of corruption further than the mother church, too bad the English church has decided to to catch up. From a publication of an English pastor who wasn't an Anglican, but was pointed out even in the late 19th century,
'...the State Church, which the great reformers had planted, and which some of them had watered with their blood, presented the spectacle which went far to justify the sarcasm of an eminent writer, that she possessed "A Popish Liturgy, a Calvinistic Creed, and an Arminian Clergy."'---The Down Grade
Christian women would never go into the pulpit because they have true faith.
Liberal women are unbiblical and worldly therefore they will always follow the world and Satan's religious human ideologies.
The Anglican Communion have been unbiblical and non-Christian for decades now. The Holy Spirit does not attend their services.
Satan and sin use the Anglicans and Episcopalians to confound and confuse the doctrines of Scripture. In that sense they are just the same as the idolatrous Roman Catholics and all other religious cults.
Arminians should note that the precursor to the Liberalism (and its rejection of the Bible) of the Anglicans/Episcopalians is Arminian ideology.
The women in the Anglican churches ended up squabbling over the top job, namely bishop. "I wanna be a bishop" "I waana be a bishop" But Jesus the head of the Christian Church was an itinerant preacher walking around in poverty owning only the clothes on His back. Thus the glaring gold expensive robed Anglicans are definitely not the followers of Jesus.

By the way John UK, for your comment right after my first one
John Y., very simple you can't mix truth with error. hmm, I like the following summary,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The church becomes a battleground between the people of God who are continually being opposed by Satan and his people. Going back to his first attack on God through His people in the garden of Eden his strategy is to oppose, distort, confuse, and introduce lies about the Word of God. He does not give up and his strategy has sadly worked effectively as people willfully listen to the lies as promoted by his followers who disguise themselves as people of God. As God has spoken and revealed Himself it then becomes the responsibility of His people with His truth to teach it, defend it, and oppose those who mishandle it and promote his lies. As stewards with God's Word, His people are called to be faithful with His truth.

Poor Michael. Still in conflict with the Word of God.
1Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
The previous verse states:- 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. # As you can see Paul separates man's wisdom from the spiritual teaching of the Holy Ghost. Arminian teaching which requires mans involvement with salvation is - Wisdom of man. The Arminian problem is that they do not factor in sin and cannot perceive the Total Depravity of sin. The other Arminian problem is that they do not factor in to their theology the Sovereignty of God - Thus their god is not quite as sovereign as the Bible teaches. But that's mans wisdom for you - As dominated by sin.
The following verse states:- 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. The indwelling Spirit makes all the difference to Biblical Theology.
I happened to catch President Obama's speech on the release of hostages yesterday/today? He also used this as an opportunity to improve relations with Cuba. According to CBS commentators, Nebraska farmers should love this idea.

I agree with the others. You are an encouragement to all the brothers and sisters and your wisdom is appreciated. If you ever need anything, just holler.

Of course the above is well said. I have pondered who the antichrist is, like most of us have done. It is okay to ponder. I think the antichrist will be a secular muslim, the false prophet is "who knows", maybe someone from the far east? and the great whore that drives the movement will be the pope or the vatican if you like. I am pretty flexible in all of this except the part that Rome will play. They are the great whore.
I am glad they posted this article because many don't know just how repressive the Saudi regime is. Bibles and Christianity have long been banned from their country.
One thing for sure is these Christ hating Muslims are serious about their faith, but seriously wrong. Come Lord Jesus come quickly.
Cody wrote: John Yurich , Jow do you know what is in the bible? You are catholic yall aren't supposed to read the bible only the priest. The reason for that is so the people will stay dumb in the scripture and not know whats biblical and what isn't
Cody, I remember debating one time with a real catholic apologist, yes they do exist, and I asked this fellow why they put to death all those who wanted the scriptures in their own languages. His response was because people are ignorant and they would have interpreted it wrong. Amazing. He also told me that because I understood RC and rejected it after being baptized and confirmed in the RCC, that I had excommunicated myself and was forever damned. That is one of the most blessed things that anyone has ever said to me. They are like the Muslims; say a few magic words and you belong to them. Anyway, since the bible is now available in all languages, they allow their followers to read it, but they can't disagree with what the pope and his council say it means.
So there is a fine line now; they can read the scriptures because the RCC can't stop that, but they can't go against the established teaching of their satanic cult. ALL CULTS ARE THE SAME IN THAT RESPECT.
I was having my hair done a few days ago and we were talking about the Bible and the way things are going now in the world. A mention of Muslims came up and since her salon is in a mall, she commented that some muslims came into her shop and began to talk about their religion and the Koran. She knows nothing about any of it but she said, she got a really weird feeling and felt very uncomfortable but she did tell them she believed in her Bible and was happy with that. I know some as I have heard enough from Jack Van Impe(he even reads from the Koran at times to reveal what they really believe) She said, they have shops in the mall. They are busy trying to get converts, and are going to stop at nothing until the world is islam.She said it was like cold chills came over her as he talked. She is Baptist, by the way.
People I am stepping away from SermonAudio for a time for personal reasons. I want thank all the godly brothers and sisters for their fellowship in the gospel and all the blessing they have been to me. God bless, Unprofitable Servant.
