I don't feel sorry for a lot of people who use certain drugs anymore because I know for a fact how hard God made this life to endure and the fact is He made it way to hard to endure, beyond basically what any human being can withstand without going insane. People take drugs (including alcholol which is prescribed in the bible for people in pain near death) in order to endure through the tormented extreme madness that God put in the curse upon the earth just so they can survive and not go insane. If you even take a tylenol to get over the madness and torture of a bad headache you are doing not much different than many people who have way worse health problems that are taking stronger pain killers, they for the most part just want to find some peace and relaxation for their mind and body from the pain and torture they are constantly under. Yes some people take drugs for twisted reasons to show off to others, to fit in with some stupid crowd or whatever but many many don't take them for that reason at all. Just go to any hospital ward or nursing home and see the tortured pain people are in, screaming and wailing, I know 100% what this is all about and I don't believe it is what life is for and I don't care one iota what God thinks if He disagrees with me, tortured pain is meaningles
Exactly, Carson proved his fakeness in his forced vaccine intimidation belittling propaganda and also how I read he has been involved in using aborted baby tissue. The only one I trust in any remote way is Paul but he has no chance as he is blacklisted from all media coverage. Trump is the only one who can beat Clinton though because he is a bad ass and people are screaming out for a bad ass nowadays, so even if he is a liar who won't do much he is the lesser of two evils compared to clinton.
"Why give them the opportunity in the first place?"
Because ANYONE who takes power by force is defacto ordained by God to have it. He who uses violence to take over any country was ordained by God, because he who has power is a minister of God for Good. Whatever Islamic or any other power gets power has been given it by God, and they are "God's ministers for our good", so we need to obey and bow down to the sharia court because they were ordained by God, the proof is that they HAVE power, he who has power has been given power no matter how they got it in the first place, whether they killed 100 million people to get it or none, because the Bible said the powers that be are ordained, thus saith reformed truth.
"Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Dam right the NT supports killing such baby murderers, it is the ONLY solution. War is the ONLY answer in such countries, or move to other countries who already outlaw such reprobate criminals and use VIOLENCE to kill any of them if they ever dare try to infiltrate your refuge country like they are trying to do worldwide.
I spent 20 years plus in the military, and every year, we would have to line up for the flu shot that was supposed to keep us healthy, and every year we would get the flu. The flu shot idea is a failed process, along with all the rest of the stuff that they force into our bodies. Do not whore you bodies to the things of this world, but present your bodies unto Christ for His purposes.
All those who obey the Gospel are chosen by God, thus all the elect are God's chosen people, whether they be Jew, Gentile or Barbarian. It was the Jew who choose the Gospel; it is not the Christian that chooses Judaism. You always proceed to Christianity from your flesh.
It amazes me how insulated, monasticized, totally enculturated, out of touch, ethnocentric American Dispensational Christians are within their ‚ÄúChristian worldview culture‚ÄĚ i.e. their psychological safe place in regards to what is going on in the REAL world with their brothers and sisters that are persecuted for their faith. What is going on the Middle East is what is going on here in the USA. It is sad that you cannot even recognize that you are also under PERSECUTION in the UNITED STATES. The American church is so fat with their pompous arrogance in thinking that God has blessed the USA because we have blessed Israel. Nothing could be further from the TRUTH. For that reason alone, DISPENSATIONALISM is a theology of FEAR. It manipulates Christians into supporting ZIONISM, which is NOT Christian, which is RACISM, APARTHEID, which results in a form of JEWISH SUPREMACY. Christians are mandated to REJECT FALSE THEOLOGIES like DISPENSATIONALISM. Paul warned the Church to be aware of FALSE BRETHERN and JUDIAZERS. Christians are to be known by their LOVE for ALL PEOPLE groups (equally Muslim & Jews), but especially those of the Brotherhood. Brothers, we are to be PEACEMAKERS, uniting the elect in Christ whether they are Jews, Muslims, or like me, a Barbarian under the CRO
Folks, the ancient church was not built on 5013c status; why should the church in America be built on it? Again, it is God's Kingdom that will prevail; not man's institutions. Right on Mike! Churches should be speaking against the evil of day, and supporting candidates that will lead in a Godly way. The reason 5013c status was created was to shut up the church so that they would not have a voice in the culture, because the churches voice is effective in the culture and that is what they fear.
Hey Barna....remember your "User-Friendly Churches" book? -Accessible way to "worship", a comfortable place to bring frinds and a creative community they can belong. Nothing said about Hell, repentance and the such. You created this problem and now you are concerned about its results? Let's get back to the ancient paths...preach the word...and they will come. True Christians, sheep, should be concerned about feeding on the truth first not about comfortable conditions...
