Well Dolores is back to put the Grahams back in the forefront. Their ecumenicalism and worldly ambition are so well known that I am not even going to address those issues. But let me just say this. When Samaritanâs Purse goes into Muslim countries to pass out aid, they do not present the gospel of our Lord to them. If they said that Mohammed was a false prophet and that only Christ Jesus is a valid path to salvation, they would be killed or imprisoned in a short while. At a minimum, their philanthropic endeavor would come to an end.
Franklin Graham is nothing more than a media christian, an adherent to a name it claim it social gospel, who loves and worships his own fame and fortune.

Plus, this is a forum related to articles posted publicly, so like the Areopagus during Paulâs day, itâs a place where people can present ideas and thoughts. Of course, challenges to others views are part of the process. Yet, there is a constant stream of ad hominem attacks on John Yurich which doesnât befit professsd Christians. But, of course this always seems to fall on deaf ears (eyes) because itâs never wrong to call someone a âtrollâ, âJesuit trollâ, âunsavedâ, âunregenerateâ , on and on to some. Plus, if someone like myself points it out then IâM the one doing the devilâs work. I have yet to see anyone of you apologize to John Yurich for calling him a troll or even worse unregenerate. Are you really saying you know a manâs heart via a news article forum? Be reasonable already.
Is there anyone in our society that you would think are unsaved? So, Hillary, Obama, Trump, are all possibly saved because they use the name of Christ.
Many of us are "certain" that because of JohnY's theology/fruit that he isn't saved at the present time and is indeed a childish troll.
That is not judging him, but comparing his thoughts/actions to scripture.
And yet this supposed Christian man will stand and pray with any apostates that officially enter into a government facility. (ecumenicalism/pluralism your call) So, he would rather defend the honor of this nation, than defend the gospel of our Savior.
The dominionists will of course be pleased with this silly action. To me,it simply shows his hypocrisy.
The below are general comments that came to me and they apply generally to these groups and we should all agree on the points I am noting. If someone doesnât understand the purpose of a general comment, they should google it.
1. They order God around by naming and claiming miracles. I have heard some of them say that if someone prays âThy will be doneâ they are sinning.
2. They believe that those who are not baptized in the Spirit are second class Christians. IOW, they will not be called upon to preach or be elders or deacons.
3. They have women pastors.
4. âSomeâ believe that you are not saved unless you speak in tongues.
5. Their more famous proponents are very wealthy because of their schemes.
6. They claim to have prophets who are not prophets at all. Deuteronomy 13 says false prophets should be put to death.
7. They elevate the status of some of their leaders to a ridiculous level.
8. They believe that Christians are like little gods.
I believe they are every bit a pseudo-cult regardless of how sanctimonious they may act. If someone wants to discuss any of the above points, let me know.
Mike wrote: Everything that's being said about the RCC is true. It is a great false religious system. It buries its hooks deep inside the mind of its adherents. The problem is in seeing John Y as some sort of agent who's here to troll the rest of us into- what, exactly? Conversion to Catholicism? Fat chance. He doesn't do very well at it because he is an awful spokesman for it. Anyone here even remotely tempted? Any former Catholics like myself can clearly see he doesn't believe in anything because he believes in everything that has to do with religion as an insurance policy. JY is truly messed up, but he's no agent of Rome. I say this as an actual former outspoken defender of the RCC.
No Mike, I donât think that JohnYâs goal is to convert people to RC, but to simply water down Christianity. If he can make folks believe that RC is not antithetical to Christianity, then he is watering down the gospel. You do realize that in our country, saying someone is catholic is synonymous with saying they are Christian. He furthers that thought process.
I donât care if he is RC or not; he is still a troll and he uses catholicism as his point of divisiveness.

Won't work Jim. Everyone knows that the politician you are noting was a republican; otherwise you wouldn't note him.

I await the true King from heaven, let the world play its political games, it won't be long and it will all be done away with.
Yes sister, the goal of a politician is to get elected and in order to do that, they have to pander to the masses. The below is something that a mentor of Bill Clinton is on record for saying. It makes sense to me simply because there are no profound changes that take place.
âThe argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can âthrow the rascals outâ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policyâ (Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966.)
Heâs a remarkable interfaith interlocutor,â Rep. Price told the outlet. âHe strives for full acceptance and appreciation of other traditions, not simply wanting mere tolerance, but to really engage and talk about the substance of oneâs faith.â
As previously reported, the House also bowed their heads for an Islamic prayer in 2014 in being led by Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey.
Above is from the article.
Our government accepts other faiths. Anyone who would bow their heads when an apostate is praying is in fact an apostate. They may think that going through the motions is okay, but it is not.
Obama said the following:
"Obama said: "I am a Christian. I'm rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there's an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived."
And George Bush said when he looked into the popeâs eyes, he saw God.
As I have said often, they are simply different shades of the same color!

The responses you receive elsewhere are the same exact ones you receive here. Nobody ever agrees with you on the usual topics, and always being the odd man out, my question is: Doesn't that ever give you any sort of pause and make you think that your logic, various answers, and comments could be wrong, and not biblically sound? Are you certain that everyone else giving you the same answers are wrong, and you're right? Shouldn't that fact make you think a bit and open God's Word to see what He says about it all?
Good questions Chris! I remember asking him on a couple of occasions why only SteveR accepted his testimony and none of the other posters. Any genuine poster with any common sense would really ponder that fact. Anyway, I asked him knowing I would get no answer because that is what trolls do.
Ladybug posted a Baptist message forum and he was doing "exactly" the same thing on that forum.
It is often said in pulpits and in the media that love is simply love. So if someone is in a homosexual relationship and they claim to have love for one another, then that relationship is okay. If these groups adopt a child and love that child, then that is also okay. If a lesbian woman undergoes In Vitro Fertilization and gets pregnant and has a child, she will also undoubtedly have a love for that child. In fact, let me just say that using the word love will generally solve any cultural problems we can encounter. However, here is a thought that most donât consider. Unless our love is used to demonstrate the love of Christ, then our love is baseless and only serves satan. Yes, God, our Savior and the Holy Spirit are completely and totally the spirit of love and without them love cannot exist, but surely anyone can see that we can have a false love and deceive ourselves and those we are loving, albeit in a worldly way. If something is done and it is not done by our Lord and Savior working through us, then it is meaningless.
Ph.2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure. John 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Thanks for your comment and I understand what you are saying. These folks arenât my enemies because neither I nor one of my loved one has had contact with them. They are Godâs enemies and I would never ask the Lord to forgive them. Now, had they personally sinned against me or one of my loved ones, then I would gladly ask the Lord to forgive them. Would someone dare say that a homosexual priest was their enemy; of course not.
1 Samuel 2:25 If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.
Dr. Tim wrote: Another Michael, you are absolutely right that Christians must be about our Father's business in the matter of spreading the gospel, and this I do on a regular basis. I simply have no patience for "preachers" whose only message is one of social betterment (Jackson) or financial prosperity (Osteen). While the world literally goes to hell, these apostles of Satan water down the message and attempt to offer a crown without a cross. I am so unlike my Savior in many ways that I blush to think of my sinfulness, but I do share to some degree His compassion for sinners and His contempt for self-serving religious "leaders." By the way, please pray for me as I preach to the down and out in the hope of seeing them up and in. Thank you.
Anyone who has traveled in Europe, to include the Vatican, saw the witchcraft the catholic church embraces. They have publicly displayed bones of saints; they have statues and relics; they have âsacredâ grave sites of previous popes and of course the list goes on. They do indeed worship each of these things! If someone doesnât think that is true, then they simply donât understand Catholicism. I grew up in the catholic church, so I do know.
And then of course you have priests who can mutter a few words and change wafers and wine into the body and blood of our Lord.
And then even worse, someone confesses their sins to a sinful man and he assigns penitence to them in the form of reciting so many Hail Maryâs, Acts of Contrition, and Our Fathers and then proclaims you are forgiven.
Who but Christ/God can forgive sins! No human, deceased or living has the power to forgive sins.
Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
God has told us throughout scripture to save sex until marriage and then to be faithful to your spouse and marriage should only be with the opposite sex. Our society ridicules that thought and sexually transmitted diseases are simply the fruit of that behavior. It is getting worse, because our morals are becoming worse.
Jim, since we all know you are confused about abortion and how it is indeed murder, let me just add this. If a woman has a self-induced abortion, then it is still an abortion and still should be prosecuted.
If a woman kills her 1 year old child, it is murder.
There is absolutely no difference except in our perverted legal system.
In your line of reasoning, you think that if health care provided them with abortions, then these poor women wouldn't have to go to such extremes.
