I cant say I have a favorite verse, for there are just too many I am fond of, but if I had to narrow it down, I would pick Psalms chapter 1 though it is not just one verse but six.
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Its the Draconian Lizard men I tell you. They started the feminist movement so they can enslave the human race again. If you wear a tinfoil hat, youll actually be able to see whos really a lizard man, and whos not. Obama, the Pope, Billy Graham, anyone of stature, theyre all Draconian Lizard men. (Just kidding)

I use to work with a guy that believes in the Draconian lizard men in disguise from planet Nibru conspiracy. He was very good at mixing this nonsense with Scripture, and had half the shop believing in his heresy. Tony reminds me a lot of that guy.
If you want to see a true tin foil hat lunatic, look up a fellow named Johnathan Kleck. The co worker I made mention of espouses his beliefs.
I agree brother. To me, for one to attempt to fit evolution in the Bible, they must trust mans word over Gods, for they would be interpreting scripture with the presupposition that evolution is an established fact.
I use to watch this show. After I got saved there was just no way I could continue watching it. I also use to watch southpark when I was younger, and they made fun of Jesus in like half their episodes. The reprobates can have their laughs, theyll be screaming for mercy in the end.
2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

I hope my comment yesterday didnt lead anyone to believe I support Billy Graham, I was simply saying that we can rejoice that people have been saved through his ministry, even if it was only a few. I really dont want to get involved in this conversation, so thats all Ill say.
I dont think much of Billy Graham, but I will add this:
Philippians 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: 1:17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. 1:18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
I know not what his motive is in preaching the Gospel, nor do I think much of altar calls, but I will rejoice that many have heard the gospel through him and have been saved, though I imagine his emotion driven altar calls have led to more false conversions than genuine conversions. But then again, only the elect truly respond to the gospel.
I agree SteveR. I dont care for the pagan traditions surrounding the holiday, but this is the time of year where Christ and his birth garners much attention. Should not the Church take advantage of this to share the gospel despite the pagan roots?
Unprofitable Servant wrote: Will someone connect the dots for me? How is the slaughter of Christians by Muslims the fault of the churches in American or any other country for that matter. When the Roman government and the Jews were murdering, torturing and imprisoning Christians, could you show me where the blame for that was laid upon the "moral failure" church of that day. Thanks
I too dont see how the Church is responsible for the actions of unregenerate sinners. Even in dead apostate churches nobody in encouraging the slaughter of Christians over seas.
I fail to see the point you are making. Romans 11 speaks of salvation coming to the gentiles, and that Jews have been given a spirit of slumber correct? Now Paul makes it clear that their is a remnant according to the election of grace and God has not forsaken the Jews. So, when this remnant is saved threy are graffed back in and would be part of the Church. Like I pointed out earlier, only the Church is heir to the promises of Abraham.
Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
I think I will exit this conversation for now, and later tonight I will check out the sermons MS posted
Lurker writes: Another thing perhaps someone can answer. Why the fixation on one tribe of Jacob? Did Jacob not have 12 sons? Were not the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for all 12 tribes plus Manasseh, Ephraim?
Since those who are of Christ are heirs to the promise, perhaps they would also like to answer why Christians werent zipped over to Israel?
