There is little difference between the dominionists of today and the RCC of yesteryear and Islam today. Both groups want to set up a political agenda and then would force "or" compel others to follow their lead. I strongly believe that as an individual Christian I should disobey immoral laws when I can and I would recommend others do the same, but not using immoral political/social methods. My agenda is to serve Christ and not set up a worldly kingdom that is worthy for Him to rule and reign over.
I am a stranger and a pilgrim on this evil earth and a bond-slave of my Lord, not His partner in any way. These dominionist thoughts would say we partner with the God of this universe in some unhealthy way. A slave is not a partner, but a slave. Now I will admit there is a nuance to my thoughts, so I donâ€™t want to argue or debate this position. Although emails will get a long long meditation of this thought. This world will grow worse and worse and although I should not help it to do that, I must realize that is reality.

For what it's worth, I agree with your assessment. Christ was "not political" in any sense and neither were any of the apostles. His kingdom was not of this world - period. And this heavenly kingdom transcends any government. Don't let this pseudo dominionism get to you.

Anyone who has an inclination to try polygamy ought to take a lesson from Solomon...poor guy. No wonder he was lamenting.
I agree sister. I have never understood why anyone would want more than one wife. There are no examples in scripture of a woman having more than one husband, but lots of examples of having more than one wife. And yes, Solomon should be a lesson to all of us.
Now here is a question I have put forth before and no one responded. If a missionary goes into an African village and converts this fellow who has 5 wives and has kids by all the wives. If polygamy is sinful in and of itself, which wives, if any, does this fellow divorce?
This vaccination thing is very interesting. On one side, I think that most will concede that they do use cells from murdered babies. Now in my opinion, parents should not be mandated to get their kids vaccinated. It doesnâ€™t take the village that Hillary called for to raise children. Okay, now let me raise an issue that has not been raised yet, but all who served in the military will concede is true.
Every person who enlists in the military receives several vaccinations/shots during basic training. In addition to that I know that when I went to VN, I received several more because of the location I would be serving in. My question is this; if someone says that receiving a vaccination is tantamount to assisting the abortion industry, then they must also say that serving in the military is doing the same thing. One thing is certain, these soldiers have no choice whatsoever. They disobey, they get kicked out. They decide to serve, they must take these shots.
Interesting dilemma. If I have not considered this argument well, please let me know. My understanding is pretty superficial, I admit.
The RCC is the most ecumenical religious body on the face of the earth. They simply absorb their deviants into their fold as long as they give homage to Rome in some fashion. The pope certainly has the spirit of antichrist since he places himself in the place of our Lord and Savior.
One day this antichristian body will hunt down those who belong to the Lord and they will then be killed or imprisoned. It doesn't matter what they do or say; they are pure evil.
Great Sermon! What a great message brother on the significance and necessity of Jesus' baptism. I would recommend all those who are pondering whether they should be baptized, or if they wonder why the God/man would do this, to listen to this message. Thanks brother!
If you are not a bond-servant or slave of our Lord, then you aren't serving Him according to scripture.
If you are not serving Him as a slave, according to scripture, then you are not following Him.
If you are not following Him, then you are not one of His disciples.
If you are not His disciple, then you are not one of His sheep.
If you are not one of His sheep, then He is not your Shepherd.
If He is not your Shepherd, then ....
 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.  Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;  And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? (Jer 7:8-10 KJV)

Don't you know that the miracle of time solves everything. Given enough time, anything can happen, and apparently did, because here we are talking about it. Just don't step on a rock...it.could be grandpa. Anyway, in addition to the question you posed, mine is always to ask why we don't see evolution in progress today. At any given moment, we should be able to look and see life at various stages of evolution all around us. Why isn't man still evolving? Like the giraffe growing a long neck to reach into the trees, or an ant eater growing a long, thin snout to burrow into the ant hills for food, why hasn't man sprouted wings or grown a hard shell to protect our fragile skin? Why don't men who live in colder climates grow thick layers of hair over their bodies? I could go on, but it doesn't take much to prove how silly and hollow this theory is. People seem to forget it's just that...a theory.
Well said Chris! I will answer the rhetorical questions you posed. God simply stopped creating on the 7th day.
Well how about the below being a hindrance to evolution.
There was this swamp or something and a bolt of energy struck it and somehow formed a living cell which even science concedes cannot statistically happen. This living cell immediately received/had enough DNA to fill 500 phone books. It then decided to replicate and formed a complete human. Irreducible complexity did not even slow this process down. But after this human was formed, it couldnâ€™t reproduce. But that didnâ€™t slow it down, it simply started over and the opposite sex was formed. This bolt now had created a male and female, with different sexual organs that could reproduce. Now this bolt of lightning also had to cause this to happen to every species of life that exists. They can of course only produce within the species.
I have never heard a scientist answer the following question. How can a cell reproduce without the DNA it contains and how can the DNA exist without the cell that houses it. If someone wants to know which came first, the chicken or the egg; it would have to be the fully developed chicken.
Well, our Lord and Savior doesn't need the help of the unsaved to accomplish His purposes. This sounds a lot like the Catholics and Evangelicals Together and the Manhattan Declaration agreements which were blasphemous.
I would personally shun any evangelical that sides with these nuns or Jewish Rabbis. If evangelicals want to argue against Obamacare, let them argue against it. But to join forces with these unsaved folks lends credibility to their doctrines.
 Woe unto the wicked! [it shall be] ill [with him]: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.  [As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. (Isa 3:11-12 KJV)
The RCC says: Persons or agencies are infallible to the extent that they can neither deceive nor be deceived."1
all the faithful of Christ must believe "that the Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world, and that the Pontiff of Rome himself is the successor of the blessed Peter, the chief of the apostles, and is the true [vicar] of Christ and head of the whole Church and faith, and teacher of all Christians; and that to him was handed down in blessed Peter, by our Lord Jesus Christ, full power to feed, rule, and guide the universal Church, just as is also contained in the records of the ecumenical Councils and in the sacred canons."2
when he speaks ex cathedra, that is, when carrying out the duty of the pastor and teacher of all Christians in accord with his supreme apostolic authority he explains a doctrine of faith or morals to be held by the Universal Church, through the divine assistance promised him in blessed Peter, operates with that infallibility with which the divine Redeemer wished that His church be instructed in defining doctrine on faith and morals; and so such definitions of the Roman Pontiff from himself, but not from the consensus of the Church, are unalterable.

Disgusting that they and their supporters are forcing it into the permeable, impressionable little brains of the up and coming generation. The next generation will grow up to view everything that's going on today as being normal, and those who oppose those things as haters.
I agree Chris! They are simply trying to brainwash society by word associations. Feminism, homosexual rights etc. are simply associated with slavery and civil rights and it causes "society" to then start thinking differently. Catholicism, mormonism and Christian are used interchangeably and look at the result of that. Amazing.
Blasphemy against any religion is a criminal offence in Pakistan. Besides Christians, Muslim minorities such as members of the Ahmaadi community also face frequent accusations. Many people have been murdered, including politicians who argued for repeal.
The above is from the article.
Now I am not trying to be cute in the slightest, but I have always wondered how there could be any genuine Christians in countries where blasphemy against Islam warrants either the death sentence or imprisonment. All Christians are to witness regardless of their circumstances and witnessing would naturally lead to these punishments.
I know there are lots of Christian aid ministries that go into these countries and I also donâ€™t understand how that can take place because of the aforementioned reasons.
The most correct thing a Christian can say about Islam is its founder was controlled by demons and was a pedophile and that Jesus was/is God in the flesh and unless someone confesses their sins and throws themselves on the mercy of God in Christ and in Christ alone, they will face His wrath.
As an aside, we are not far from some aspect of what it taking place around the world. Christianity will be considered hateful and harmful to our society and we will be punished.

If thou hast my discharge procured, And freely in my room endured The whole of wrath divine; Payment God cannot twice demand, First at my bleeding Surety's hand, And then again at mine.

It sounds like a lovely hymn! Thanks for providing it.

This is pretty basic,Dolores. If you have a problem with people who you judge to be tare seekers who very well may just be those who are being obedient to the aforementioned passage/command then you are are the one is in grave danger and error. And BG's quote,as is par,is only half right. We are to love...but speaking the truth and correcting error is part and parcel to that.We are not to judge the heart but we ARE TO JUDGE the fruit/deeds. His quote,of course,would be very well received among the universalists and charismaniacs.
Notice, Ms. Ecumenical doesn't even attempt to address your concerns. My guess is she got a blank look in her eyes, shook her head, and then started over again. But you did the right thing; thanks.

You sound like a stranger and a pilgrim on this evil and temporary world. IMO, Trump is a buffoon with a lot of money and he is really enjoying the stupidity of the American people. I heard him say the other day that the bible was his favorite book - amazing.

I agree completely with your comment!
I am still waiting for a politician to say that abortion is murder and should be prosecuted as such; homosexuality is an abomination in God's eyes; greed is idolatry and feminism is evil in all its aspects.
Christopher000 wrote: But the photo above isn't a baby, right Dave? This is what they murder, claiming that little boy or girl was never a baby because he/she hadn't been delivered. Here's the ridiculous liberal logic: The poor little baby boy or girl pictured above...two minutes before delivery the mother can walk into any clinic and order the staff to murder the child within because she doesn't feel like raising "it". They say, "ok, ma'am, lay down while we go and grab the vacuum or acid". The procedure is done, the woman takes care of her co-pay, the baby is tossed into the bio-hazard trash bin, and life goes on. Now, take that very same little baby. The baby gets delivered but the mother murders him or her two minutes later. WhWhat's the difference? There isn't one, but she makes the nightly news across the nation that night as the world gasps in horror that anyone could commit such an unspeakable crime. Really makes a lot of sense doesn't it? I really don't understand the twisted logic.
Excellent Chris, and if someone hurts a woman and she loses her unborn child, then they are charged with a crime. There is no logic, that is for sure.
Passerby wrote: Also, also, Bring her before the one who judges righteously; as those who brought the woman caught in adultery. He alone will fix it when we pray, believing that His will will be done by delivering us from the evil one. Praying for him is an expression of just how much we perceive the love of God towards us. And, love covers a multitude of sins we have in our thought life; that we are not like that other man. So if you are without sin, publish this man's abroad. We are loved more that we will ever grasp.
6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
