Good for the Texas Supreme Court Not that this mayor would care,
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB
Hmm, maybe Martin will get his wish? When I die, I want to be a ghost...So I can continue to pester the bishops, priests and godless monks until that they have more trouble with a dead Luther than they could have had before with a thousand living ones."---Martin Luther. The Reluctant Revolutionary
This is an interesting article, except for attacking the new head of SAT for being connected to Common Core -- so was Jeb Bush -- a little competition in the testing business. Could be beneficial for Christians and non-Christians alike.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote: ...if you merely look at her [The Romish Church] in that general manner you might well come to the conclusion that this is the most orthodox body in the world.
But at this point the subtlety comes in and the difficulty arises. To all that she "adds", with a "damnable plus", things which are utterly unscriptural and which, indeed, become a denial of the Scripture.
So she lands us eventually in a position in which, if we accept her teaching, we are believing a lie! In other words, her dogma is a counterfeit; she is, as the Scripture puts it, "the whore"....

Though Live Science's coverage of the Nature paper was heavy on the gloss, a different Live Science article described another species, the large Pacific striped octopus (LPSO), with whimsical delight and very little talk about evolution. This species (despite its name, able to compact itself the size of a tennis ball), tricks its prey the way a human jokester taps on a friend's opposite shoulder, making him turn the wrong way.
SteveR, Judaism was never an evangelizing faith, --though they had the Biblical references to be so-- but people just saw the sense of it even before they knew Christ.
JFB Commentary wrote: Acts 10:Â Â Â 2. A devout man, &c.â€”an uncircumcised Gentile proselyte to the Jewish faith, of whom there were a very great number at this time; a distinguished proselyte, who had brought his whole household establishment under the hallowing influence of the Jewish faith and the regular observance of its principal seasons of worship. Â Â Â gave much alms to the peopleâ€”that is, the Jewish people, on the same principle as another centurion before him (Luke 7:5); thinking it no "great thing," if they had "sown unto him spiritual things, that they should reap his carnal things" (1 Corinthians 9:11).

Well, as I said, and others have said forgiveness does not mean restoration. I will say that TT has some obvious talents. In most cases the pastors that are caught in the similar situations one can consider it is a blessing in disguise. For the congregation can get a better pastor, and the said fallen one can't get a job that he is more suited for.
I would say there is more of a shortage of positions for good Pastors than perhaps good Pastors themselves?
Read no more than the article This article--like those from Huffington Post, for example you never look past the end of the article and with H. Post you expand the screen so you can't see the sidebars either. Oh, this goes for BBC articles as well. --and almost anything else you find on the Internet.
Now raising the --undeserved-- ire of a Communist government is always a possibility, but considering the problems all governments have with Islam, q.v., http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Sene/morethanreligion.html (Islam: More than a Religion) from this article, 'Better yet, do your own careful research on the web or at a local library. See if you can find a satisfying answer to the following question: In what Islamic nation is this "beautiful, peaceful, and tolerant religion of Islam" (as it is presented in the West) practiced in such a way that it might prompt you to move there for the rest of your life?' When Christianity starts aping Islam--it isn't Christianity anymore. Also something that governments will want to destroy.
Gary you should have read more of the article I left.
Mich. Standard wrote: There are forces on both the left and the right that would like to make college campuses less radically open to all kinds of discussion and expression. The conservative studentsâ€™ objections to Fun Home should remind us that avoiding offense and protecting feelings are unwise policies for university administrators to adopt, since they will quickly lead to prohibitions on a wide variety of things that absolutely belong on campus. But hyper-offended left-leaning students present an inarguably greater danger to free expression and academic freedom, given that these students have been much more successful at forcing schools to cater to their anxieties so far.
