Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The span of resurrections revealed in Scripture spans from the resurrection of Christ through the resurrection of all unbelievers.
References in Scripture indicate four resurrections in God's plan that will include every single person who has ever existed.
Christ/First fruits - Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24; John 20 has occurred.
The second (and next) resurrection will be of Church-age believers at the first stage of His second coming as part of the 'first resurrection' of mankind - 1 Corinthians 15:50-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
The third resurrection will come seven years later at the second stage of His second coming to earth, with the resurrection of the rest of the believers which includes the Old Teatament saints - Daniel 12:1-2 and the Tribulation saints - Revelation 20:4.
Lastly 1000 years later 'comes the end' when the resurrection of all unbelievers will occur - Revelation 20:11-15 when they will face Christ at the Great White Throne judgment for sentencing to eternal hell
John Y., you forgot to add stupidity. A society without strong support for traditional marriage is a weak one.
Quite right, Lady Virtue, and it can be added,
1 Corinthians 7 2 But because of immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.---NASB
Nowhere in the New Testament is there support polygamy or polyandry -- even though in the Hollywood culture they practice in a serial fashion.
Michael, Pentecostals I don't hate, I do hate their frothing-at-the mouth theology My father and mother listened to this one (Assemblies of God?) who sounded intelligent, now my father may have attended a Methodist Church when he was young, and my mother finally coaxed him into attending one of these churches, ah, he never stepped inside a church on regular basis after that. He only attended funerals. So, I have a deep hostility to the Pentecostal movement.
Even as a believer I might think they should have had their rabies shot Now, John MacArthur doesn't hate charismatics, but he sees their actual independence from the Bible as an extreme danger to Christianity, "Doctrinally, we must have structure, we must have sound doctrine. We cannot fall prey to a system that resists any doctrinal categorization. But see, once you allow experience to be the test of truth, then you can't limit doctrine to the pages of Scripture."---John MacArthur excerpt from, http://articles.ochristian.com/article2177.shtml ("Experiences...source of truth?")

Oh, I forgot to mention what his Unholiness chose to deny.
Matthew 28 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." ---NASB
Zechariah 11 15 Yahweh said to me, â€śTake for yourself yet again the equipment of a foolish shepherd. 16 For, behold, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, who will not visit those who are cut off, neither will seek those who are scattered, nor heal that which is broken, nor feed that which is sound; but he will eat the flesh of the fat sheep, and will tear their hoofs in pieces. 17 Woe to the worthless shepherd who leaves the flock! The sword will be on his arm, and on his right eye. His arm will be completely withered, and his right eye will be totally blinded!â€ť---WEB
Though I rarely mention the version name for the WEB, because I can ignore the copyright notice for it--because it isn't, but ESV thanks for the heads-up. I appreciate the information.
"9. Don't proselytize; respect others' beliefs. "We can inspire others through witness so that one grows together in communicating. But the worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes: 'I am talking with you in order to persuade you,' No. Each person dialogues, starting with his and her own identity. The church grows by attraction, not proselytizing," the pope said."Alright evangelicals, there were your marching orders from Satan's emissary himself! Let people die happily in their sins. I think it's better you follow this advice about
SC I could just repeat my last message, see The Inadequacy of Moralism, I put some comments on to that as I did on the latest sermon that is up for Gil Rugh, Responsibilities As Slaves. Now, my comments on those sermons are very, very unofficial additions to the summaries, What I pointed out are in the sermons, however, and actually Gil had more on the topic of social condition than the first 13 minutes of the "Slaves" but also scattered throughout the sermon. So, (while I think ) it is good that you read the comments on the sermons--there was other important points in those sermons as well.
The only moralism that a church can really address is morality in the church. As citizens the only effective action on moralism is what a very high percentage of what people support can be put into law, my guess 95% or more? In this country we would consider it child abuse to force a girl 9 or 10 into a sexual relationship with a man, and we have laws against it, (and for a man to have more than one wife) not so in a Muhammadan country.
