Before you get too excited, wait until you see the drivel they put out. I shudder to think. All they see is that 1.4 billion dollar market, and they want their piece. Gonna be a lot of self-publishing nutjobs, I suspect.
What is wrong with brother Voddie and/or his teaching? I find him to be very illuminating and count him as one of my favorite teachers. The staff pick of "forgiveness" is an excellent choice. Good stuff in there.
Saving the world is one of the most foolish and arrogant endeavors mankind has come up with to date. To think that we can stop the divinely appointed destruction of the world is akin to thumbing our noses at God.
A missionary that feeds them twisted, incorrect doctrine is actually worse than no missionary at all. How do you convince someone that they need salvation if they think they already have it? It makes the next missionary's job that much more difficult. Case in point, try getting Yurich to leave the roman church
Getting back on topic...has anyone heard this young man preach? I admit that I have not. But I don't think it is absolutely necessary to go to seminary to preach God's word. It is quite possible that seminary would actually be detrimental. Osteen went to seminary, and didn't we all just finish bashing him recently? I would modestly propose that anyone who is truly horrified by the thought of a teenage minister, should perhaps examine their true motives. Are we afraid that we might have to do a little extra work and check on what a young pastor preaches? Aren't we supposed to be doing that anyway, regardless of the age or education level of any pastor? Have we become so used to just sitting there and trusting that our pastors will teach us correctly, that we don't bother to make sure of it?
I think there is too much emphasis on being entertained. Just my opinion, but what's so horrible about turning off the television, and actually living the lives God has seen fit to give us? In the end, we will be accountable to our great Creator for how we spent the time He gave us.
As for Mac's blood "heresy".....if it is only Christ's blood that saves, and not His death, then I guess John Yurich is the only one here who will be in heaven, as the rcc are the ones who claim to actually have a vial of His blood. Now John just has to figure out how to get his hands on it.
He was in it briefly, showing his open-air chicken processing methods. Although, I suspect he may regret doing that flick by now. Food Inc. Has turned into a nasty political machine that contradicts itself at every turn and has branched out into areas unrelated to their original film.
Kids these days.....no critical thinking abilities. It's not their fault, though. It's sonething that must be taught, and these days all that's being taught is how to blindly believe anything. There are significant problems with the china study, not the least of which is the simple fact that correlation does not necessarily equal causation. As far as I can tell, the china study actually PROVED nothing. It's speculation based on observation with a nice dose of sloppy scientific method thrown in for good measure. Not bashing veggies....we need more, doubtless. Just trying to promote the ability to think for oneself
