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.
Great Sermon! I know we're supposed to be charitable to our brethren who love the Alexandrian texts, but I can't help but wonder what the condition of Christ's church would have been today if they would have only left well enough alone 100 or so years ago.
We got the right translation! Wait . No we'll have the right one shortly. And after that we'll have the right version again. And if you hold on for long enough, we'll have it again! And as soon as we decide that we've found something better, then we''ll have the right translation again!...and again!.....and again!....and again!.......
Globalism is nothing more than an organizational attempt of man to unite independent from God and in rebellion against Him, right in line with Nimrod's rebellion and of the exact same spirit. God could have allowed Nimrod's rebellion to culminate, thereby ushering in an early Judgment Day, but he mercifully scattered them instead, giving man space for repentance and bringing about His plan of redemption. That was then. Don't know that he'll do that now however. I hope there aren't any Christians trying to make a case for globalism. What sinful folly that would be. (Rick Warren and Richard Land are members of the CFR)The Lord will preserve His own however. Psa 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. Psa 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Psa 37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Psa 37:37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. Psa 37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
Marginalized in the military. Marginalized in politics. Marginalized in the public square. Marginalized in the Jesuit run institutes of indocrin...I mean higher learning. Marginalized in the public schools. An ongoing marginalization in the workforce and in the economy. Marginalized even in much of the professing church! Christians have been counted as sheep for the slaughter and the offscouring of all things in the good ole USA as the spirit of anti-christ continues to rise. We should be discussing ways we can prepare ourselves for being persecuted. (that is other than hiding behind Romans 13 distortions)Lord give us boldness and humility to stand in the hour of fiery trials.
This is a case for rapidly disappearing religious liberty in this country so we need to be exhorting one another to pray about this because this will have an effect on all of us. I stand against women preachers also. There are no Debras in our day. (plenty of Jezebels though)Whatever she is, even if she isn't a professing Christian, she needs to win this case. Religious liberty is a precious gift from God and is not something we should be cavalier about. What happens to her in this case will ultimately affect US.
NYC has already projected a goodly size image of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death and destruction, onto the Empire State building, so it seems fitting that they would now erect a temple to Baal, which is the representative of every demonic deity since the days of Nimrod. This generation of CEO's, senators, governors, representatives, high ranking military officers, and you can name any position of leadership, is a generation that was educated and trained by Ozzy Osbourne, Mettalica, Led Zeppelin, Anthrax, Black Sabbath, LL Cool J, Madonna, Tu Pac Shakur, Twisted Sister, Motley Crew, Marilyn Manson, ad nauseam ad infinitum. Question is, how long until we throw off persecuting Christians behind the veneer of so-called anti-discrimination laws and actually make use of these Baal temples to offer them up as human sacrifices to their Luciferian god(s). Ahh, but love the laughter of a reigning Christ.... Psa 9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. Psa 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
Good points. But why do these Gospel Coalition guys always seem to avoid using the word abomination. Does "chastened corespondence of truth" really work that well? (or at all for that matter) All sin falls short of the glory of God but sodomy and trans genderism is acutely detestable to God, ie, an abomination unto the Lord. Yeah yeah,I'm probably straining out gnats.
