See if they are treated the same way as Iran and while Israel gets a pass on their own nukes. Israel has not signed the nuclear nonproliferation agreement either. Israel should be scrutinized by the same standards or they are a rogue state.
Yes I did make that choice. But I'm not certain I will pay an unjust communistic "shared responsibility" (as the 1040 line calls it) penalty, which was only justified by one vote of the Supreme Court (by the chief injustice himself).
Yet how many Christians and even churches team up with Facebook for their social media? Wouldn't an alternative (an there are many) be better and demonstrate a separation from Facebook's anti-christian public positions?
The POTUS lies. They do not defend free speech but only politically correct free speech. It is a flagrant lie and is also true of the European leaders. Try saying something less provocative, e.g. against homosexual behavior or their marriage and see if they defend you and march in unity for your right to say so!
The ridiculous and juvenile March by European leaders in "defiance" against a small number of gunmen and other radical terrorists is actually a sign of fear and insecurity! Why the huge selfie-parade (photo op by design) by heads of state against marginal criminals? Also these same do NOT stand up for all free speech as they claim but are quick to denounce in persecutory laws and policies against Christians or anyone who says anything politically incorrect or "offensive" (e.g. against homosexual behavior or marriage, etc.) What hypocrisy! It is better the U.S. did not take part in a ridiculous show of nothing.
Great Sermon! The sermon thoughtfully answers the objections most common, especially that the Psalms extol instruments but which only belonged to Jewish worship before Christ's coming as part of the types and shadow elements clearly abolished per the book of Hebrews and contrary to New Testament church worship. Also it is the 'beauty of holiness' and not a sensual beauty that is instructed for worship, as the sermon explains as well.
Powerful message, instruments in church worship? This is a powerful and practical message challenging the tradition, and increasing variety, of the use of musical instruments in church worship. Truly what is esteemed (and excused) among men is error and arrogance before God when the holy light of Scripture shines on it. If the truth be told instruments are used to get the youth involved or to please popular sentiment, not merely to accompany or aid worship, but to enhance and attract others to come to church. Especially now among churches claiming to be reformed instruments are on the increase from massive pipe organs to bands or string ensembles in the face of the 2nd command and regulative principle they claim to follow! Gill and Spurgeon as well as Puritans and Presbyterians of history all condemned it as a mark of popery or apostasy, not conservative but liberal error!
Important! Al Mohler is repenting of calling homosexual orientation a perversity and sin and undermining the truth that such is a perverted unnatural lust wicked to the core. He is leading the S BC into a false and wrong repentance! Now watch him dig his heels in and defend himself and attack his correct accusers...and persecute them instead using his position abusively (which is typical).
Important! The SBC under the leadership of Al Mohler, who has come under the cloak of historic SBC founders conservative doctrine, has leaned increasingly into humanistic Political Correctness and compromised historic SBC doctrine and this is solid evidence. Al Mohler is leading tho ecumenical liberal creep into unorthodoxy by a once most conservative denomination. Sproul provides a sharp contrast and Is spot on.
Unique, remarkable sermon! After a slow, stumbling start this sermon is startling in its content both theological and practical. What a sharp contrast this presents upon solid scripture prooofs from what is considered a Christian today! What a difference between professing christianity and real regeneration (not merely claiming to be "born again") and the indwelling of Christ by his Spirit in true believers! Why is this vital truth so neglected in even conservative churches? This vital, organic union with Christ is so different from definitions and professions of modern christianity.
