Thank God for the New American. Too many Huffington Posts out there and not enough New Americans to offset them. A victory for the hard working entrepreneur and a defeat against an increasingly tyrannical and overreaching federal government.
Great Sermon! The evangelical collapse is not coming. It already came long time ago when spineless evangelicals no longer wanted to fight the battle for the faith and decided to pussyfoot around with liberals and Catholics instead of calling them to repentance and faith. Francis Schaefer's last book pretty much tells the sad sorry story of an evangelicalism that to this day, is evergrowing in unfaithfulness to her Lord. Even the reform camp nowadays is nothing but a sorry mixture of Calvinism and worldliness. Babylon is alive and well in the reform camp. We sent our "millenials" to their worldly "passion" conferences/concerts/whatever, and gave them their own i-phones and said "Do what thou wilt is the whole of the law." It would not surprise me if this generation will be the first in America to pick up weapons against Christians.
Declaring justification by faith plus works....A step UP?... Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

1) Knowing the attitudes that exist there. For example Stuart Townend stated that if Jesus were on earth today he would be listening to "Christian rap" or "Christian heavy metal", which is typicalCCM philosophy. 2) These could be a vestibule connecting traditional worship to contemporary worship. Singing these out, in my tender conscience, means tacet approval of their more contemporary sound and thereby having a hand in promoting it. I know that's not good enough for the cool academic types that now saturate conservative churches (reformed, fundamental, etc.), but these are my convictions. And Christian liberty not only means liberty on a broad scale, but it also means liberyt to be narrow.
Ron Cider, Brian McClaren, Why in the world should I care what these bible denying apostates have to say? These so-called social justice mongering, sodomite supporting "those who seem to be somewhat"(s) add nothing to me or any other discerning Christian. These guys and their ilk need to get busy pulling the forest out of their own eyes before issuing clarion calls to Christians as to who they should support.
Youtube released a generic statement that, ‚Äúsometimes we make the wrong call on content that is flagged by our community. When this is brought to our attention, we review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring videos or channels that were mistakenly removed.‚ÄĚ ... Is it just me, or is this blatant lie (given the statement's context) obvious to anyone else?
Somebody needs to respond to James White's MCGT "onlyism." (Modern Critical Greek Text) Sorry. Not drinking the James White Kool Aid. I have a bible that is the Word of God, providetially preserved, born at a high point in church history, used by the Puritans, Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Nettleton, Spurgeon and also the bible used in all the major sweeping revivals, including Isle of Lewis in 1950. This is the bible I rely on. For those willing to drink the aid, bottoms up. As for me, I never touch the stuff. MCGT? Uncovered at a low point in church history. Might as well get your daily sustainance from the bottom of a dumpster.
Great Sermon! Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The "Word" is the greek word logos, meaning the divine expression, which of course is truth. Truth is the divine expression. Love without the truth is either impossible or of the devil. It is the truth that sets us free, love is permanently attached to it. they come as a package and you cannot have one without the other.
