I want to make it clear I cannot vote for anyone lest I violate my conscience. I do not see the lesser of two evils argument as viable either. Lest one were to prove himself tested by the word I will not cast my acceptance of him nor desire for his leadership. Find me one that does not covet his fame nor glory and his heart is pure before the Lord
I counsoled a friend of mine this week regarding leadership at his church and drew a line in the sand this way; if you have thoroughly tested your leadership with the Word of God and found them in no way wanting then you fully submit to them like I have at my church and made it clear I would defend my leaderships honor regardless the cost. How can Gospel Coalition and Piper defend this man? What bothers me is there is not a vigorous plea to Driscoll to flee from judgement and snatch him "from the fire" JUDE by those that claim reformed! Well then why should anyone then take the mercies of God seriously if we are shown it is a thing to be taken lightly?
Follow your argumentation carefully. You state this pope is not the antichrist because the antichrist is revealed at Christ second coming. How do you know it is not near? How does the framework of time negate all the other evidence that his office is the antichrist? Like prepetuating the lie that he is the vicar of christ? Or the blasphemous ex-cathedra doctrine? You need better refutation or to repent
Yeah we know how it will turn out, the judge will act like a soveriegn and look to himself and was is agreeable to him and make a ruling verses looking to was has been decreed and handed down as law external of himself which would have made him a judge
I wonder if their manual referenced Jesus comments regarding the Spirit of God as if the wind, you know not where it blows..... Maybe Phillip and the eunich???? Oh oh maybe Ezekiel 37! Yeah probably not.....
Before any comments regarding intollerence come out I think it wise to first consider how you would respond when taking a very unpopular position and having to defend it and this guy is dealing with world leaders. I deal with this at work daily as I am the only christian and am very outspoken and engaging amoungst ravenous wolves. Homosexuality is a vile perversion and is quite violent. That being said I have worked with sexual offenders and the vileness of their crimes is mirrored by what was perpetrated against them. Just keep that in mind while being kind enough to share the gospel with them, never excusing their sin
But a protest must be kept in careful context. If you noticed the judge made the statement "in a way that demeans them", this statement is purely subjective in nature. Now in judging subjectively he is judging apart from the law. He as a human judge is required to judge based on what has already been handed down from God and what the state and fed has written into law. As he has done is he has determined this based on him looking to himself to determine right or wrong verses looking externally to see how his judgement fits within the confines of what has been determined as law. He is acting as a god and usurping the one true SOVERIEGN LORD and his own superiors as men. He needs to be confronted for his arrogance
It seems she made, well 2 bad choices but I am getting from the article she seems sadden and sorry for what she has done.
2 corinthians 2 paul exhorts the church to forgive and restore the man "lest perhaps he be swallowed up with too much sorrow" for the purpose of delivering this man from a state of disobedience to a state of standing restored to his Lord so that Christ would be magnified.
Some of the responses are very harsh. I wonder if I shall look into my own heart to see if I might driveth away a sinner with my scorn or whether I seej to win him....
Here is a prime reason we must seriously consider our position on seperatism
To the untrained eye or those that are unsaved it appears that 2 christians can't agree and are willing to fight over an issue in the text of scripture which lends itself to this conclusion; the bible is not clear, it is fallible, it is not to be strictly understood nor obeyed.
To those within the kingdom should be able to see this clearly, Mr Robertson is abandoning the clarity of scripture and his obedience to it and is causing a riff. The text is clear! Day Genesis 1 is the same word as day everywhere else. To follow any other line of reasoning or draw any other conclusion is a form of rebellion.
I seperate because I seek to eliminate confusion to the outside world looking in or the weaker brother argument Paul makes. If you are going to take a stance against what is clearly stated in scripture you need to be rebuked not joined too
The Bible holds up the Glory of God and it reflects onto the depravity and wickedness of a man 2 Corinthians 3
Facebook flatters men. They get on it and peddle their accomplishments, brag about themselves, deceive, distort the truth about their lives and their accomplishments. It is an invitation to do evil and I really don't understand why christians are on it.
One flatters, one confronts. Which one do you thinj fleshly people will flock too?
Consider seriously why you are on it. Is there any of you at all that desires to be flattered or elevated in anyway with anything you have ever posted? Then flee with all your might
Sexual immorality with any form of humble beginings all to way to homosexuality and violent sex is one of the most calculated and aggressive assaults on the authority of God over an individuals life when sexual immorality is taken as a whole.
The seriouness of this goes well beyond what is appealing to the eyes and flesh, do not have a narrow view of this. Sexual immorality is one of the highest catalysts in the destruction of a society and has accelerated americas slide into destruction in ways we fail to comprehend I.E. feminist morphing into sexual revolution.
