I see how this forum is run and so it is not my thing to keep arguing with different ones or maybe the same ones using different monkiers to keep making the same comments with different words but the same song. This not what God called me to do. So I am leaving this forum to help whoever He sends into my life. This has always been my prayer and it has always worked for me. I have won women to the Lord through my friendship with them. I have heard from some of the kids I taught that are now adults and living for the Lord. One was in clinicals at the same hospitable my son worked as a CRNA and was training her in. He said she kept talking about me as her Sunday School teacher and how she never heard me say an unkind word about anyone. You know that was God's encouragement to me that allmy years of teaching was not in vain if one soul was one soul was won to Him. So I am saying my good byes on here and wish you well. I will miss the few that cared and was my friends in Christ.
Ladybug, you are repeating verbetum what has been done to me onthis forum and you and others try to tell me that if I don't follow your leading and your interpertations of the Word then I am wrong. So what you posted goes right back to you because I don't accept it. Your opinions mean nothing to me because I saw error in how the Houston pastors were treated, that it was ok for what happened to the ordinance she was pushing.
MS, you will never win them with this attiude. I am sure you do have loved ones that need saving so do I but if I called my husband all the names that you have called the Catholics on here, a troll, you unsaved devil's child, sorry but you are headed for hell,I want you to get see your sins and so I will remind you everyday how sinful you are and how righteous I am. Now, I really love and I am only doing this for your own good because you see God knows this the only way you will ever see the truth and not go to hell.I would not have a husband. I have already been told by my Lord how to be a soul winner and how a wife is suppose to win a husband and i don't need you or anyone else telling me what I need to do. I have His Holy Spirit to guide me in all truths, to be my helper, teacher, paralegal is what He called along beside me to help me not be led astray. I don't really need your advice it maybe wrong after all.
They, don't build mansions for themselves. No hint of scandal in their lives, no plagrism. What is wrong with churches setting aside their differences to working together for the common good of their faith in Christ and standing together to fight against the real enemy of God's people. No one will become a Catholic, or Church of Christ or Pentecost or Baptist or whatever. I have a few beliefts different from Baptists but basically I feel the closest to theirs. No one knows anything that is going to happen until it appears. That's including the AntiChrist, the faise church, the false prophet, the rapture etc. We look at the signs of the times and know something is happening and if we stay ready and close to God we don't have to worry , we just work and witness and sow the seed unless you having too much fun to even think about these things.
It never ceases to amaze me how you take away all the good they do and not building mansions and all the good they do and have done means nothing if the don't condemn the Catholics. Someone calls.gets a letter and all the others are high fiving each other. I couldn't care less about your opinion and sending people to hell. My thoughts on this is your hatred of the Catholic church and condemnation of anyone that doesn't have your same opinionn is as lost as they are. You have so much bitterness, that anyone can see it and almost feel it. Jesus, loved the sinners, He ate with them and the hated tax collectors, like Matthew were called to be His disciples. That'why the Pharisees hated Jesus. They were self righteous, so no need of repentance. Like the publican and the Pharisee standing in the temple praying, which one did Jesus say came away justifed, it wasn't the Pharisee.
Agree, If Texas can vote in a Mayor that is openly gay, then they can only expect her to be for whatever is her beliefs of right and wrong in her eyes. The rally they had in Houston was basically tellng Christians to get out and vote for the ones that will stand up for Christian rights to speak out against sin, in all forms. To have christian values,to fight for the good of the families and our country's freedoms.
Yes, SteveR, I have noticed that also. I even had someone on here suggest a sermon to listen to and lo and behold it was a Presbyterian. Was I the only one that listened to it because didn't hear peep from anyone else!! I thought it was a good sermon and it was a "Berean" (?) that gave the suggestion. It was on perscution.Btw, Ruth Graham was a Presbyterian. and wanted to be a missionary like her father, who was a doctor. She was raised in China. She met Billy at college and we know the rest of the story. And people on here can drag their name through the mud but you can't change the fact that these are God's servants doing God's work. Frankliin has sent people all over the world as ministers to those who are suffering. He was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama( my home town, family still there) after a tornado destroyed places, my neighborhood was one. Not, a house left standing on the block except the one I was raised in.Ruth is in heaven now with her parents, rejoicing and enjoying the fruits of her labor.
Hi pennned, my husband's sister lives in Oklahoma and one of her sons has an organic garden, no pesticides, etc. They brought us some of the biggest tomatoes, zucinnies etc that were so good. I hear he sells a lot of it and makes lots of money from his produce.
Lurker, so appreciate your comment, it was encouraging for me. I think the ones who have been through the storms of life and are still standing should share their stories as an encouragement to those who are now in their storm. Btw, God won't let me quit, everytime I try, He brings someone along to cause me to continue on You are one of those and I wish Jessica would also. Her posts are encouraging also.
Shane, just read your comments. Wow, what a wonderful, testimony and so like the God I know. We went through some hard times also but God got us through them, with what I call miracles. Just unbelievable things that you just look back and stand in awe. These are things he uses to keep us encouraged that we are in His will for us. You know, my grown adult children have never complained about what they didn't have in way of material things but they talk about how great it was to have me at home. Like you said my husband, who was a working foreman for the power company and did a lot of overtime so I wouldn't have to work. God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.
Well, I didn't attend,simulcast on Stand Up Sunday but a friend called me today and said the Church was filled to capacity and we have balconies. I knew it was announced in the Gazette, so I am sure there were many from other churches also. It was nation wide. Now, if Christians would just get out and vote today...btw, the Attorney General of Texas got involved is the reason the subpoenas were dropped.

You are right, you have the right to say whatever you feel in your heart. Our pastor preached on that very subject. He didn't mention names but he read the statement Victoria Olsteen said about we should serve God for ourselves, not God, etc. and shook his head and said that is not helping people that are lost if we make them just feel good by scratching their itching ears. He gave lots of scriptures to back it up and it's true, we do need to rebuke and witness to others and I agree with that but he also had Mike Hucklebee and Phil Robertson and someone I don't know on a live broadcast in support of pastors in Houston. Stand Up for our freedom to speak out and others were going to be speaking. Mike Hucklebee being the one that was being put down for a lot of things that were so biased. He was in it for politics and he supported Sarah Palin, and he is not anti catholic so he's ecumenical. Btw, I was only saying that I question your spirit because of you saying that to me. I know you are true christiian men, you and Frank. Frank's testimony was awesome and inspiring. Your comments bless also. We just aren't always on the same page.
Helps, that's fine that you corrected me about troll spotters comment. I had forgotten that and only fair that it be pointed out. You know, actually, debates make me very uncomfortable, they are not my cup of tea, I don't enjoy it at all and always regret getting involved. Good night and blessings.
Christropher, thanks for responding. Sometimes it does get hairy but I think some on here really enjoy these debates. They agree with each other and that's fine but if anyone else disagrees, we are made to feel unworthy or something I can't really explain. It shouldn't be that way among Christians. I love you and pennned and others on here that I sense really are trying to help each other with love, yes we do need to teach and admonish and rebuke, I see that clearly but out of love for that person. My husband has not been saved but he is a good, moral man and I love him dearly. Our Sunday School class has treated him with kindness.They are a bunch of down to earth chtistian men and some are hunters and he gives those deer that he has killed. One is a Viet Nam vet that can no longer hunt and loves deer meat. Him and his wife took us to a steak house and paid for our meals. I don't have to say a word to him. He knows me and how I feel. Anyway, I didn't read what you said, Dopey did so I'm a little confused on that. Will take your advice and try to stay out of trouble.
No pennned, I didn't. Really, didn't see the point in what they were going to say. It had all been said and it is in God's hands actually, now. We are living in the last of the last days and we need to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Sow the seed as God leads.Blessings to you.
