Doing a degree - that is sitting at a desk for several years memorising theory of which much doesn't even contribute to the actual job, is mans invention. An unfair selection process which discriminates against the natural proclivities of the majority of mankind.
Unfortunately in order to have a job that pays good money one needs to have some kind of post secondary education whether that be a college degree or a certificate of completion from a vocational school.

Why would you make such a slanderous statement that I have a different god than the one True God of the Bible? I believe in and worship the one True God of the Bible by worshiping Jesus as God.
The man in the picture for this article looks kind of like Vincent Bugliosi who prosecuted Manson and his so called family. Now about this article. That is totally evil to have students dissect the brains of aborted babies.
Redistribution of wealth is Socialist/Communist inspired and thus is wrong. If one is too stupid not to have gone to college to receive a degree to secure a good paying job then it is their own fault for not making big money.
Rodney K. wrote: I remember when character mattered. How is it that we now must console ourselves that we are not electing a pastor or elder? Presidential character mattered to me even before I was saved. Should it matter less now that have been made new? I understand the arguments made about supreme court nominees. Really, I do. But I must ask myself, can I really vote for someone who is fundamentally corrupt? (and both candidates are). Do character matter more to me than the supreme court? Do I vote for pragmatism, or do I vote my conscience? Can I in good conscience explain my decision to my children? to my God? What a sad time for our nation. I will be shocked if we still have the freedom to post our thoughts on threads like this four years from now - no matter which candidate wins. I wonder if we will then think silently to ourselves, "Yes, character matters."
Only someone who is totally off of their rocker would state that Trump is as corrupt as Clinton is. Trump is not corrupt since he has stated he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court and other Courts who are against abortion and homosexuality and has stated he would reverse all the evil policies of Obama.

Saved, meaning that you have confessed that only Christ can save you from your sins, then you should refrain from going to the romqn catholic church who believe that you mist pray to Mary who then goes to Christ. You should be apart of a church that teaches God's word for what it truly is.
Why? Church attendance in any church including an Evangelical Protestant Church is not required for salvation. Yes or no? If one who trusts entirely in Jesus alone for salvation does not leave the Catholic Church and unite/attend an Evangelical Protestant Church are they saved and will they go to Heaven when they pass away? According to Independent Baptist Church teaching and the Bible they will go to Heaven when they pass away.
Observer, I just don't have a mental assent to the doctrine of salvation. I really do trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation.
Rodney K. wrote: Hello CA! Someone else here might give you a better answer, but I'll give you my short take on JY. He claims to have believed on Christ at an alter call at his brother's church. Yet he attends a Roman Catholic "church". He claims to know that the RCC teachings and liturgy are false, but he claims to only go along with the "unbiblical parts". He cannot be reasoned with, though many have tried. The majority of folks on here consider him a troll. He is prayed for, witnessed to, and refuted. But he stubbornly refuses to change.
There is an error in what you posted. You stated I only go along with the "unbiblical parts". That should be I only go along with the scriptural parts of the Mass. Answer this question. If nowhere in the Bible is church attendance in any church including an Evangelical Church mentioned as being required for salvation then why do you guys keep stating that because I attend the RCC and not an Evangelical Church that I am not really saved? To state that one who trusts entirely in Jesus alone for salvation has to leave the RCC and attend an Evangelical Church or else they are not really saved is going against the Bible doctrine of salvation.
Observer wrote: What a great world you live in where everyone you want to believe cannot get anything wrong but those who point to the bible and show you directly where you or they are wrong MUST be wrong by default! As I said, don't bother responding. I can't read any more of your tiring trash.
You are not acting very Christ like. But that is to be expected of someone of your limited perspicacity. Independent Baptist Churches get their doctrine of salvation from the Bible. And you are stating that they are wrong about what Justification By Faith means?
Observer, According to the teaching of the Independent Baptist Church that my Independent Baptist friend attends Justification By Faith means to trust in Jesus alone for salvation. That is what they teach and they get their doctrine of salvation from the Bible.
Observer wrote: In the excerpts I posted up Cloud didn't mention a single word about Graham's preaching. The article was about Graham's compromise with with Romanism, Modernism etc. So what lies did Cloud write?
The fact that Graham preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation means he has not compromised in his salvation message.
