I'm saddened So reflective of the day and age we live in that this is even being discussed. God hates divorce. How can two who were one flesh ever be anything but one flesh?
Nowadays you even find divorced and re-married men becoming ministers and pastors. This would have been unheard of not so long ago and would have been seen as scandalous. May God help us and forgive this liberal, sinful generation.
Great Sermon! Please pray for me i'm a Christian on 2 anti-psychotic drugs that are forced on me they give me bad side effects such as agitation, shakiness and tremors i would like to live without them but cannot because of what doctors say and do.
I'm really glad we're investigating CMP and not Planned Parenthood. Heaven forbid that we would look into the accusation that babies might be being partially delivered alive and then murdered so that their full corpses can be sold for profit. No, it's much more important that we investigate whether or not CMP should have had consent before making these videos. The method is much more important than these trivial revelations.
Wonderful Testimony! One of the most beautiful testimonies I have ever heard. Beautiful not because of the way it is told, not because of the depths the sinner was saved from but beautiful because of the compelling love of the saviour evidenced in the salvation of this man.
@pennnelope: Oil *does* come from fossils. Ask any scientist -- creationist or evolutionist. The flood of Noah's day destroyed an enormous amount of creatures, including tons upon tons of dinosaurs; and as the bones and organic matter were compressed due to the movement of the earth during the flood and its aftermath, oil and coal formed. It's not an evolutionary idea or an element of historical science; it's an observable, repeatable fact.
No hard feelings, just wanted to clear that up and let you know that, as a creationist, you can believe that fossils made oil. It's the evolutionists who have a problem, because oil typically can't stay pressurized underground for more than 10,000 years, and yet they claim that much of it has been there for millions of years. Oil wells and fossil fuels are perfectly consistent with a biblical worldview -- not so much with a humanistic worldview.
I have not made any comments on the canon of Scripture... Not sure why someone thinks I did. I am Protestant, and I don't believe we are ever counseled to "pray" to triumphant saints. We can ask fellow believers here to intercede for us, but there is no biblical warrant for praying to those who have gone on -- especially when we have direct access to the Father through Christ, the One Mediator between God and man. Plus, aren't the saints going to have more important things to be attending to? Like worshipping Christ? What evidence do we have that they any longer know anything of what goes on on the earth?
Does this essentially mean she would be "Saint" Teresa? Would she have a special purpose that Catholics are directed to pray to her for? Like how Saint Lucy prays for the blind...or something like that...
Weary wrote: John, although in this post you infer that you are not trusting in the Catholic Church. But in all other posts, this is what you've said, " fall in line with Catholic teaching." So what is it gonna be - trust in Christ alone, through faith alone, by grace alone? Or, " fall in line with Catholic teaching.? Do you ever say fall in line with the scriptures? No. The Catholic Church has added to the scripture, attempted to usurp the work of the Holy Spirit, and exalted the Pope above the Lord Jesus Christ's person, and His finished work. You know this. So your question does not require an answer. Do you have a job besides posting rhetoric?
Do you really follow the scriptures? There are 73 books in the Bible, but because seven of them didn't line up with what Martin Luther believed, he rejected them. Despite what you believe, Scripture is incredibly elastic.
Plus, the more you attack other Christians (despite what you believe, Catholics do preach Christ risen), the more you destroy the body of Christ.
I understand the point about how I equivocated Christianity and Islam. I only did so because that's what the world would do. They're both just religious options to most people.
About the transgender paper question. I probably wouldn't mind. Again, it would be very interesting to me. But I would certainly want to insert my personal convictions about why that lifestyle is problematic, inconsistent, and or wrong. And I would do the same with the Islam paper.
Being assigned a point-of-view worksheet is indoctrination? I personally would enjoy writing such a paper, because it would help me to learn and understand a point of view I don't agree with. And that would serve to strengthen my convictions against it. So I don't at all see how this is a negative thing. Would we rise up in protest if children were told to write from a Christian's point of view? I think not.
Yes... exactly what we need... Why not just have a day where we share the gospel? Or is there going to be an "anti-liars" day sometime soon, too? Otherwise we're treating one sin as if it supersedes all others and is worthy of disdain -- as if we aren't guilty of rebellion against Him. This just looks to me like it will hurt our cause more than help it.
God's wrath Doubts poison my mind from time to time. These doubts are shot at me like poison darts. They are trials of my Christian journey. This sermon has really helped to bring order to the reasons of why God lets many go to the lake of fire. It seemed as though God would allow the eternal sufferers to be freed. If you ever just imagine the horror of such a fate, you have to shudder at the thought that Hod would create someone to die. It has comforted me and strengthened me. I thank God for using this man to clear such poison from my mind.
Great Sermon! One needs to entertain another view of proverbs
Proverbs of Solomon are called proverbs because the author, distinguishes them from other prophetical and inspired accounts of the Bible. Solomon calls them such.Unlike other writings that are prefaced with " and the word of the Lord came to... And He told me to write,or these are the generations of. Or I was lifted up and saw.Or Jesus said,Or God said. No such preface comes in these words of Solomon.They are indeed identified by Solomon as PROVERBS.So what does that mean? Proverbs are words written to rely on as truth,not divine outcomes if observed, not promises of God.. Solomon states these are words that :
Gain you wisdom and instruction instruct you in prudent behavior,help you get guidance, add to your learning,Help you find prudent behavior and do right.
No where does Solomon declare to the reader "do this and God will do that"= Promises.. I'll reward you with this outcome if you you follow this path.. Not one word of such a proposition.Solomon never tells the reader of Proverbs that here are words from God that:
A. Are his promises
B. are Words of quid pro quo
C. Are His commandments , that if you follow he will bless
D. Are assertions of Do this and live... Or live better
