His recording of the hymn tune "Quebec", often used for the song "Jesus, thou joy of loving hearts", is, I would say, the most beautiful thing on YouTube. I discovered it when looking for tune "Quebec" which is most suitable for singing Psalm 102 (version 2) in the Scottish 1650 Psalter.
When the Head of the Church is the Lord Jesus Christ, then it follows that the Lord Jesus Christ must be the Head of the Church. It is possible for lip service to be payed to the one but not have the reality of the other.
It's a good thing that Christian legal groups are setting up to counter this nonsense. The sodomites are being quite deliberate in their selection, and pounce whenever they are refused a service. Almighty God will give them a service, but it will not be one they enjoy; he will hurl them into the fires of hell.

"Common cause" is often used as an excuse for ecumenism, but I for one will never stand on the same platform with such. The church of Jesus Christ is ONE, and that is all that is required in any cause. The problem is that many do not understand what the "church of Jesus Christ" actually is.
Ps 89:14 (KJV) 14) Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
Of course, the law-breakers will not like this text of scripture, because it reveals God's justice and his just judgment. If only they could see it, it also reveals his willingness to be merciful through the truth.
John 14:6 (KJV) 6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If anyone wants to be "free from religion" then they are free to sin themselves into hell, which is foolishness. Must be something to do with their sinful nature.

In my daily readings today, I was in Romans 1, and the Lord showed me quite vividly something I had not really noticed before. Well, I'd noticed it, but this morning it was brought home to me that certain reprobates are in a very serious state due to overstretching God's mercy, on account of loving certain sins.
v24 Wherefore God also gave them up...
v26 For this cause God gave them up...
v28 God gave them over...
It is the preacher's prerogative to declare salvation and forgiveness to all who repent and believe the gospel. But for these ones who are "given over" there is nothing for them from God except certain indignation and wrath. There is no gospel for them, they have effectively "sinned away" grace. ___________
Mike NY, no need to ask your question, bro, as I don't have the answer. But you know me well enough, I take scripture as it comes, and Romans 1 is very clear, so I just believe it and let it influence my life, especially in evangelism and what I am able to say to people.
What do sodomites want to hear? "God loves you and has a marvellous plan for your life."

I cant believe how these are being treated as some new species of human that just landed on planet earth. I can't believe how these are having laws written on their behalf, or this new species is being protected and catored to. I can't believe how the sodomites are raging, and calling anyone who doesn't take them seriously, bigots, and I cant believe how the basic descriptors of man and woman, boy and girl, are now considered hatred and bigotry whenever these choose to identify as some other made up type of human being. What a crazy, crazy, Godless time to be alive in
If you want a potted history lesson on how the UK has changed over 50 years, this bbc article may be helpful, Christopher.

It was indeed, Christopher. We had some conversations also, and were pleased when the new pastor of the local evangelical church came and had a chat, giving us plenty of encouragement; it was a nice time of true fellowship, and he prayed for us before he went. Usually it is a case of, "'Ere, what you doin' on my patch?"
I was accompanied by a brother (from Pakistan) who had never been out witnessing until this year, and he is being really blessed by obeying the Lord and playing some small part in the Great Commission. I expected some racial comments, but the Lord protected him, praise God!
Have you got your folding tract table, yet bro? Rhode Island NEEDS YOU! Hallelujah!
"Another topic the book touches on is the use of everyday chemicals that cause hormone disruption. Stellpflug argues that use of such chemicals is causing a "hormonal evolution."
"The fact is we are helping cause the hormonal evolution of our species at breakneck speed because of the everyday use of powerful hormone disruptors," the book states. "Add to this the societal shift of acceptance and even an encouragement toward homosexual exploration and the simple hormonal evolution expands to include sexual revolution." [from the article]
On Tuesday, in between tracting, I held up a TBS poster board, and the poster in the frame was: JESUS SAID, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6
I noticed that all the people in the slow-moving vehicles were reading the text. (seed planted). And then I saw across the street a few children who were gazing at the board. So I held it higher, and one by one, they all not only read the text, but they all read it out loud, and I could hear them. A few more children arrived there, and they also read out the text, out loud. I was greatly encouraged. I also noticed that all young people who passed right in front of me, stopped to read the text, fascinated.
This TBS board is wonderful. I have about a dozen Bible posters stacked within the frame, so that the text can be changed any time. But I took out the plastic cover because it had gotten sunburnt; its design is to make the frame waterproof for when you bolt it to the side of a church building.
I only mention this as an encouragement to those who are thinking about "getting out there" with the gospel, while you legally can.
I must have missed it wrote: they didn't have printed tracts back in New Testament times, so tracts must be against the regulative principle? In fact no one passed out tracts during New Testament times, so it must be something not to be practiced today.
They didn't have printed Bibles back in New Testament times, so Bibles must be against the regulative principle? In fact no one passed out Bibles during New Testament times, so it must be something not to be practiced today.
