Do not be fooled by SteveR's defense of John Y. John has repeatedly made it clear many, many times that not only does he not have any desire or obligation to attend a biblically sound church, but even if he did, he would sit in the back, never talk to anyone and leave as soon as the service is over. He says he is a "lone maverick" when it comes to fellowship, and feels that its not necessary. And some how this is Christian to SteveR.
Alas, how many there are today who imagine that if they have "faith", it is sure to be well with them at the end, even though they are not holy. Under the pretense of honoring faith, Satan, as an angel of light, has deceived, and is still deceiving, multitudes of souls (2Cor 11:14). But when their faith is examined and tested, what is it worth? Nothing at all so far as ensuring entrance to heaven is concerned; it is a powerless, lifeless, and fruitless thing! It is no better than that faith which the demons have (James 2:19). The faith of Gods elect is unto "the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness" (Titus 1:1). Saving faith is a "most holy faith" (Jude 20): it is a faith that purifieth the heart (Acts 15:9); it is a faith that worketh by love (Galatians 5:6); it is a faith that overcometh the world (1John 5:4); it is a faith that bringeth forth all manner of good works (Hebrews 11).

In my opinion, the unbiblical idea that Christ rejecing Jews in Israel are Gods people has caused more problems for the church than ISIS, as it has led to dispensationalism and other absurd beleifs. Ive even heard some church leaders and Christian speakers say that ISIS isnt worth putting boots on the ground, but if they attack Israel we need to go in there no holds barred and anilhilate them. Thats just ridiculous. But, I know we disagree on this issue, so lets agree to disagree.
..more mature games that are nothing short of satanic. I was referring to someone who eats, sleeps, and breathes videogames. That would be my definition of a gamer. If one only played games moderately, there would be no need for the label.
I used to be a hardcore gamer. After I got saved, I found that being a Christian and a gamer wasnt compatible and I gave it up. The majority of video games are satanic, and a huge waste of God given time. Gamers need to hear the true gospel, and the truth about video games.
