I posted it up as a followup to the previous story concerning his actions. Actions I felt were way in the past, handled internallly, and forgiven. I posted this up because it's a pattern that he never seemed to get victory over as I had previously given him credit for. As it turns out, not only did he have two active accounts for many years that have been used even recently, but he has gone further, admitting that he has been cheating on his wife. I feel everyone would have heard about it anyway, regardless of whether I posted it up or not, and .if nothing else, now he and his family have more people to.pray for them. : )
That's fine, for the Christian sin is not the norm. But those that name the name of Christ and have fallen we need to show grace and mercy, not being seduced into gossip and finger pointing. That being said, everyone of us face temptations and everyone of us will fail or have failed at some level. 'There is none righteous,no not one.' When these sins are exposed, I see much finger pointing.
That first blood that ever was shed was heard in heaven: "The voice of thy brothers blood crieth unto me from the ground" Gen. 4:10. These false teachers are an accessory to murder. God will certainly avenge.
s c, Elmer is someone who posts anti-everything rubbish on here. Most of his comments are vile and we report them to the SA Mod. when he posts them up. They remove them completely or delete, that is why you haven't seen them. You haven't missed a thing, nothing but racist bigoted rants.
Michael Hranek wrote: Dorcas You are entirely right what true Christian would ever wish such a thing. Here is a potential problem our churches are infested with both immature Christians and tares among the wheat, and they can corrupt us if we are not seriously on guard. Something I sadly have encountered first hand, and likely others here on SermonAudio have as well. If you ever read or have read David Platt's book Radical, this kind of thing was one of the most heartbreaking experiences he encounter. Chapter 4 The Great Why of God pages 61,62
Thank-you Michael for your reply. I agree with your comment. We always need to be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves in our discernment and walk with the LORD. Blessings in the Beloved.

Hi B, Could you give me the name of the speaker? My mobile device will not pick it up by SID #. Thanks.

Let us heed the word of God concerning those who are divisive - "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them." Romans 16:17 Time is too precious to waste on those who haven't ears to hear; there are multitudes who need our prayers- there are true brethren who we need to lift up and pray for as well. To continue to waste time arguing with Satan's minions is fruitless. They frequent these boards for a reason - to be divisive, to attempt to distract us from what's truly important. May God have mercy on these deluded souls.
Thank-you Observer for your post. Sister ladybug expressed similar thoughts awhile back....she was correct. Popery and her ecumenical step-children have darkened the land...God's little flock are "Israel to their tents". So appreciate the remenant on this site who contend for the faith.

The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. Lamentations 3:25
