McCausland, Which words are vital, the king's English or original Greek? What is lost in vernacular IS irrelevant if the person reading does not have the SPIRIT. It is folly to them in this age or any age.
Pencil man, What's the point? Love doesn't CONDEMN; the righteous justice of God does. Love does hate sin but those who are God's enemy are not LOVED by Him, but perish under his holy condemnation in hell. Hence why it is hell and not heaven where the beloved reside.
Pencil man, Love doesn't condemn...justice condemns based on guilt. A man cannot condemn lest he be a judge. Semantics and word choice is peripheral when it comes to God and His word. All peoples everywhere could have a crisp copy of the 1611, but unless they are made alive by the Spirit, the sharper wording will not cut any deeper than the Message or TNIV.
McCausland, Who is it that strikes deep into men's heart the truth of holiness and sin? It is not the vernacular or King's English; it's he the Holy Spirit. Wrangling over which words have a more cutting edge is peripheral.
The Christian community "could vanish completely" unless they are helped by man? These types of articles are ridiculous and devoid of biblical understanding. GOD will determine if He will take HIS people out of the region. If He does then EVERYONE will VANISH from the area, not just Christianity.
@defytyrants How do you read Romans 13? How do you understand Christ's revelation that Christians WILL be persecuted and that we are to count it ALL JOY to suffer for his name's sake? Where in the Bible does it instruct the Christian to take the government to court?
Christopher, The Daily Beast is a left of center news site, similar to the Politico. My other question is, What is written on the plates or tablets? Are the Greens mere collectors of antiquity or is there a biblical connection to theses artifacts. If there is a connection then I'd rather them possess it than ISIS using them for their next propaganda video.
this is not an article on how Christians should respond To being a target of Shooters, it's a worldly call to unite with ALL religions to "figure this out". There is not ONE mention of Jesus Christ, not one. Ours is not to figure out how to stop shootings, but to present and live out the truth of CHRIST before a ever darkening world. There are shootings, "minister", because men's hearts are exceedingly wicked. It's ironic that this minister writes this op-Ed from the same magazine that declared God is Dead a few decades ago.
what does Carson's view, or lack of, on the age of the earth have to do with his ability to be president? Does not God put in place rulers? If God will have Carson as president, it will not matter our opinions.
I can never understand such ridiculous articles. Extinction? Who can stay the hand of God? The only reason that part of the earth is not consumed like Sodom and Gommorah is because Christians are still there! Human finite understanding and naive arrogance is on display in this article.
this is PC hogwash. They say gender blind but it remains that females have a lower physical standard as men. You can deny reality with your mouth, but actively living in it will make foolish your professed wisdom.
Over this past weekend I picked up a small book filled with Christmas Sermons delivered by Charles H. Spurgeon. He delivered them, obviously, during the Christmas season. He doesn't embrace or bind his congregation to NOT embrace the season, but does take opportunity to USE the season to preach Christ. All this lights and tinsel, Saturnalia and Yule tide, Mass and 3 Magi talk is rather peripheral to the main course of taking EVERY opportunity, and SEASON, to preach Christ.
