Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the Luthern pastor who Hitler hanged in 1945, spoke as strongly against abortion as he did against Nazism. His views are worthy of noting: "Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent... (beginning to develop) life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse this issue. The simple fact is that GOD certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his/her life. And that is nothing but murder"." This scripture was often on his lips. "Open your mouth for the dumb". Proverbs 31:8 This duty rests upon every Christian!
Oh how we need the absolute sovereign moving of the Holy Spirit to blow across the dead, depraved, darkened hearts of mankind and bring revival to our land. John 3:8. May we the prayer of the people of GOD be: ..Set watchmen upon thy walls,which shall never hold their peace day nor night..... Ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, And give Him no rest, till He establish.....
Frank, I too consider you a brother in Christ. The pharisaical and sanctimonious attitude displayed by some on this board is quite striking. Not unlike some of the 'good going church people' we have encountered along the pilgrim way. We all have beams that need to be removed from our own eyes before we start to sit down in Moses' seat to considerest the mote in our brethrens eyes. My two mites.
I was the one who mentioned Ruben Israel on the board to Michael H. because of his interest in open-air preaching. I do not endorse or support harassment of any people's group. Sorry pennned that you have been offended. I thought we had this dealt with yesterday?
What is the gospel? Jesus Christ the sinless Son of God died on a cross for His people, taking the punishment they deserved for all their sins. On that cross, He bore the penalty due them. He was their substitute, the One Who took their place and experienced the wrath of God they deserved. And, to show that God accepted His death as a full and sufficient sacrifice for sin, He raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. cf. 1Corinthians 15:1-4 What is the gospel?....good news
Pennned, I know this is a subject that is close to your heart, so I will leave off commenting. I rejoice when the gospel of Jesus Christ is preached to ALL sinners. That is the most needful for all of mankind. This world is passing away....
Michael, Yes brother Israel has a completely different way of open air preaching, he goes into the places to bring the gospel where the police are hesitant to go! He has been preaching almost 35 years in the open air, may our good and gracious Lord continue to protect and use him to His glory. Also will pray for you and your church as you go with the greatest news mankind can ever hear! Every blessing to you and yours. Numbers 6:24-26.
Barack Obama is just echoing the lie from the Garden of Eden by the old serpent, the father (originator) of lies, when he seduced Eve into thinking that man, not God, should determine truth. He follows along the lines of Greek philosophers (now called humanists) when Protagoras, the father of sophistry, wrote: "Man is the measure of all things".
