what a waste of money sending that stuff to people who believe in abortion. It should give them a good laugh. it would be better for them to support ideas like these in the areas of abortion clinics. The Ridiculous Grace of Adoption The above an interesting story, below an organization to check out. Birthright International.
Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote: Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
and this truth upset many Muhammadans as well when it was pointed out by His Unholiness Benedict 16.
Ah, another story about our great ally Saudi Arabia WATCH: Saudi Imam says Charlie Hebdo attack is only language Jews and Christians understand There were some interesting comments to this article also, e.g., 'there is no such thing as â€śPalestineâ€ť in the Koran. Allah has assigned the Holy Land to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment (Koran, Sura 5 â€“ â€śThe Sura of the Tableâ€ť, Verse 21), and â€śWe made the Children of Israel the inheritors (of the land)â€ť (Koran, Sura 26 â€“ â€śThe Sura of the Poetsâ€ť, Verse 59).'

Thus we again have the strange sight of a supposed shepherd happily and willfully giving his sheep into the hands of wolves. This is the most spiritually-doctrinally confused hour which the world has ever seen. In an interview with Katie Couric on NBC television on April 2, 2005, Franklin Graham praised the late Pope John Paul II and claimed that they preach the same gospel. We are glad that Franklin believes and preaches the gospel described in this testimony (apart from the â€śreceiving Christ into the heartâ€ť part, which is not scriptural), but he seriously misrepresented the Popeâ€™s gospel. The late Pope believed that the doctrine of salvation by grace alone through Christ alone by faith alone is heresy (the anathemas of the Council of Trent against the gospel of grace alone have never been rescinded)." source - http://www.wayoflife.org/database/franklin_grahams_unscriptural_ecumenism.html
Oh, there certainly might be a possibility of a Rock 'n Roll band being Christian. Also for your church orchestra might even want to jam once in awhile. hopefully in the basement and out of earshot of anyone like myself who has refined tastes in music such as myself. People with primitive tastes in music can be and many are Christian. I would just say I wish that they not inflict it on others the congregation, most of the time. I would even say that orchestration can be offensive to the ears. For example, I really liked Guy Lombardo -- I really despised Lawrence Welke, at least more than 90% of his sets.
Psalms, they only sound good in Hebrew, and there is nothing in the Bible to restrict us to them, English hymns that have stood the test of time are fine, and even some of the modern songs could be flowers albeit in a garden of weeds.
Why Mike, that shows the inadequacy of moralism. I would say it would take the whole Supreme Court to stop a wanted law let alone the unwanted ones. Anything of note ends up in front of them. By the way there are various groups not just Christian ones that don't want the widespread you some marijuana as pointed out in this very short article, Medical Pot Only OK for Sick Kids Failed by Other Drugs: MDs
s c, I don't support a Christian caliphate. But, just to let the public run amok, like Rand Paul wants to do and my offen stated displeasure with this family should show you that I'm hardly a liberal on social issues, but just again, I recognize The Inadequacy of Moralism
Ah, what entertainment? I always considered Rock 'n Roll simple music for simple minds, I found that grinders and milling machines in a factory much more musical. It has gotten so bad that even old church music get's redone instrumentally. You might remember that folk music group from the '60's - '70's "Peter, Paul, and Mary" They did a folk tune call "Old Blue," and then they turned it into a Rock 'n Roll song. Both amusing and well done. Unfortunately, many modern religious groups have done the same to older hymns which are not inspirational and are poorly done.
If there are parts of a congregation that like modern instrumentation/songs let them do it in a separate service, and I would think many IFB's still have two or more services, so people who prefer a more musical approach --I would think many of the young sprouts have intelligence enough they would prefer something to RnR---can have a respite from modern instrumentation/music during at least one service.
Why pastors should sign civil certificates of marriage, was answered in the first three comments of the article. They look very good to me. A couple isn't legally married until the civil certificate is executed. Of course remember, Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government
JW, I am certainly not one who should complain, since even in my high school days, I really knew that my writing wasn't all that understandable, unless I wrote once and revised twice. Unfortunately, something that I rarely do. however, why don't you give it another shot and rewrite what you said and put it into an understandable form?
Revelation Series 2008 I suggest you read all the summaries to the sermons even if you don't listen to all the sermons. You'll get a good view about eschatology.
But hey folks, we know you have the Vatican do your thinking for you, so here from office Ratzinger before he became the Pope,
Pontifical Academy for Life wrote: the lawfulness of the use of these vaccines should not be misinterpreted as a declaration of the lawfulness of their production, marketing and use, but is to be understood as being a passive material cooperation and, in its mildest and remotest sense, also active, morally justified as an extrema ratio due to the necessity to provide for the good of one's children and of the people who come in contact with the children (pregnant women); such cooperation occurs in a context of moral coercion of the conscience of parents, who are forced to choose to act against their conscience or otherwise, to put the health of their children and of the population as a whole at risk. This is an unjust alternative choice, which must be eliminated as soon as possible.
