Try "The Reformers and Their Stepchildren" by Verduin.
Not you pope wrote: How do you account for what would be completely apostate 1,400 years with not so much as a peep about "Sola Fide" until Luther's 16th Century entrance onto the theological stage? Where did Jesus say or even once imply: "Sola Fide" My brethren? It makes little biblical sense that God would orchestrate 14 centuries of nobody saved (or even the real possibility of salvation), however after circa 1521, 100s and 100s of millions are now saved because we all have access to Luther's "Sola Fide" doctrine. How can this tale ever ring true? Sola Gratia! Yes! Solus Christus! Yes! Soli Deo Gloria! Yes! _____________________ Sola Fide, clear? Perhaps. Biblical? Nullum.
I find the posts by Max very interesting, and sadly, he is merely expressing the false doctrine of submitting to the commandments of man that many so-called believers hold dear to their heart. Max demonstrates just how silly and foolish this satanic doctrine really is, and those who profess the name of Christ and adhere to this significant pet doctrine should be embarrassed and ashamed.
Forcing God's people through coercive and/or manipulative actions, directly or indirectly, to obey so-called laws of man, whether or not said laws can be known and understood, and, whether or not said laws be few in number, such as 13, or great in number, such as millions, is legalism, and those who teach, preach and support such legalism are legalists.
Reuben wrote: Dear Mr. Schwartz, Actually there are not variations of the KJB out there. The reason they do not "tackle" this one is because there is nothing to tackle... but before you make accusations you might want to provide me some proof. There is only ONE KJB and it's the same throughout the world. I will make a loose assumption that you love "change" and you hold to some modern perverted version that man has titled "Bible"...

I understand quite well the idolatrous view of the holy scriptures in which you and your murderous father believe.
It appears that you and your Statist Heathen brothers and sisters are having great difficulty explaining who the "governing authorities" are (is?) and all of the laws (dogmas) that I am expected to learn and obey.
wrote: I wish people held themselves to the same standard as they do our President. We are to pray for and submit to those in authority because they are placed there not by democrats but by God. I am amazed at the hateful disrespect given form the pulpit to our nation's elect or shall I say elected leader! Can the man do anything that you can thank Christ for? Is God no longer in control as long as Obama is in office? Think for yourselves and not through the politically stained glass windows.
Just to be clear, I am NOT included in the "our" - as in "our President."
Nothing but a Heathen president s-elected by powerful Heathens, and not elected by lay Heathens, as in "we the people." But the Heathen can still believe the lie that their vote counts because it makes them feel really nice.
It's amazing how the Statists so easily defend their master and the thousands (?) of deadly, mind/body-altering, magical pharmaceuticals and vaccines, with vaccines even being made with cells of aborted babies. But that's all fine and dandy, because "Luke was an Allopath" boo hoo hoo.
Such deception and blindness on SA, especially Alan H.
Neil wrote: Considering the Scriptural duties of parents towards their children (Eph. 6), it is hard to believe that missionaries could rationalize such abandonment of their children.
I think it's a form of abandonment, neglect, and even child abuse for parents to ship their little ones off to the Institution for 8 or so hours a day, 5 days a week, considering the scriptural duties of parents towards their children.
Hey, do you know that HIV doesn't cause AIDS? Do you know that many smart people do not believe that the disease-causing HI-Virus even exists because said virus has not been isolated and proven to actually cause some sort of disease?
