Everytime in the KJV Old Testament where you find the word LORD in all capital letters, you will find that this word is from the Hebrew consonants YHWH, from which the words "Jehovah" and "Yahweh" are derived. To say that Yahweh is a false God is to say that Jehovah is a false God.
Rufus, be careful not to make statements about Biblical words if your statements contradict the original languages for those words. Just friendly advice.
God told me to tell Benny Hinn that he is a fraud and should stop telling lies that he is actually a preacher of God's Word. God says it in His Word, not audibly as these frauds are telling people.
2Cor. 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
It shouldn't surprise anyone about diseases that occur in the sodomite community. God said this is what will happen to this class of sinners.
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
A sodomite is not born a sodomite just as I was not born a drunkard eventhough I became a drunk for over 20 years. These people are slaves to their sins as I was. The only way sodomites won't be sodomites anymore is by trusting in the Lord Jesus by faith alone. These sinners aren't hopeless. They just need Christ who can free them as He did me.
1Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Christ can save these people from their slavery to sin just as He did me.
This shows the great ignorance of Mr. Imus, who likely in his entire life has never opened the Bible to see just what it says. Instead he listens to a so-called gospel acount named after the traitor Judas.
It's like when I've talked with Muslims who say the Bible doesn't say that Christ is God, but when I've shown them they still say, "I don't believe it!"
Evolution is a lie that can keep one from believing God's Word. I grew up in the U.S. public school system and was taught very early on that evolution was a fact that could not be scientifically refuted.
I professed faith in Christ first in 2003, but 3 years later I realized that my profession of faith was meaningless because I didn't truly believe the Bible then.
In 2006 I came across the answersingenesis website, and other creation ministries, and just kept reading. The Lord Mercifully let me realize that evolution wasn't science, but rather another religion that required one to need more faith than trusting in the Biblical God. It was my belief in evolution for 39 years, among other things, that kept me from trusting the Bible as absolute truth. One cannot honestly believe in death-before-man evolution & in the Bible at the same time. Either you believe the whole Bible or none of it. To pick and choose what part of the Bible is true makes man the authority, not God. But God's Word is absolutely true in its entirety!
I hope the minitrial stated in this article takes place. It will help "scientists" see that "science" doesn't prove evolution. It may also help someone trust God's Word & accept Christ as Lord & Savior by faith alone as what graciously happened to me.
David you wrote, "Ken Ham is a hypocrite." Prove your accusation. Have you ever tried to read what Answers In Genesis tries to teach? Maybe you confuse Mr. Ham with someone else. By attacking someone without any evidence, you are guilty of committing a logical fallacy called an "Ad Hominem."
Do you believe the universe is billions of years old? If you were to read the Bible you could never come up with billions of years for the age of the creation. If one started with the Bible 1st and then try to calculate a possible age of the universe through genealogies of Scripture and comparing them with other Scripture like Exod. 20:11, you would only come up with a possible age of creation in the thousands of years, not millions or billions. The only way one could come up with billions of years is by listening 1st to what secular scientists [aka evolutionists] say and then try to make the Bible fit to this presupposition. It's all in one's presupposition. You either start with the Bible and then try to figure things out, or you start outside the Bible and try to make the Bible fit your view.
Telling people how God saved a sinner like me is one of the most joyous things I am blessed to do since the Lord saved my soul. If one wouldn't want to share their faith with others, even in a written testimony, it's likely that they don't have any faith worth discussing.
"Osteen affirmed that he did not "choose" to have an heterosexual orientation....his goal as a pastor is to lift his congregants up"
But he does choose to mislead his followers by not preaching the truth! Judgment will come upon these false preachers.
Jer 23:21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
How wicked it is to lie to people about their sins and not love them enough to preach the truth and do it just for a buck!
Isn't it kind of odd a Muslim would use the term "Anti-Christ system" when referring to CHRISTianity? Sadly, there seems to be many in politics who also carry this same level of being rediculous in what they say.
If pedophilia is just something one is born with, then it would be wrong to prosecute them when they do harm a child. If pedophilia is just some type of chemical reaction in the brain, then they could use the excuse that they are disabled and are not liable for the actions.
When I became an alcoholic by the age of 15, was it because I was born that way? No! I became an alcoholic because I chose to drink alcohol. Alcoholism, like being a pedophile, is not a disability, disease, or inclination that one is born with. They both are sinful lifestyles that people choose to live.
There is hope for people who are involved in the most wicked types of sin. That hope is named Jesus Christ, the Righteous! Stop making excuses for people who live in sin. Share with them the Gospel of Christ that will change everyone who trusts in Christ from the inside out. Excuses are not needed. The Lord Jesus is Who is needed!2Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. No more excuses!
Has the Bible been completed? Did not Christ warn in Rev 22:18 not to add any more words to God's final book in the Word of God?
If you claim that the gift of tongues is still in place, then you are claiming that God is still speaking through special revelation and the Bible hasn't been completed. Don't Mormons do this?
Even if there was the sign gift of tongues yet in place, do any of those groups who affirm this practice it according to the Word of God? Read 1Corinthians 14 and see if any of these groups practice "tongues" as God says they should if it still took place. If they contradict God's Word in their practice, the spirit that they profess certainly is not the Spirit of God.
"The wife of Saddleback Church founding Pastor Rick Warren adapted her message from her recently released book, Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn't Enough."
It is no wonder that she got her message from her own self-esteem book, and not the Book, the Holy Word of God.
If people talk against people who uphold God's Word the forbids women preaching in the church, they should rather tell God, "You don't understand how things work today and that it is a proud thing to tell women they shouldn't preach."
As speaking that way to God would be absurd, realize that speaking against people who stand on the absolute authority of God's Word, is also absurd. The problem is not with people who uphold God's Word, the problem is a failure to submit to what God has said in His Word.
