North Carolina State University is in violation of the First Amendment Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech. Why do liberals continue to violate the First Amendment when courts have stated it is not violating the First Amendment to communicate about God the Father or Jesus?
So and So wrote: John Yurich, Then why did Billy Graham meet with the pope?
Just meeting with the stupid Pope does not mean that Graham accepts the Catholic doctrine of salvation. Facts are facts. And the facts are that the Grahams have never preached any other gospel than the biblical doctrine of salvation.
ladybug wrote: John Y- your ignorance is inexcusable. Your continual ranting and repetitious wording leads one to believe you have issues. pennelope, If we compromise just because the Grahams may stand up for some good, then we head for troubled waters. We don't need to side with Franklin Graham just because he displays some moral beliefs. He needs to be called to repent of his compromise, he embracing dead religions like the RCC, and his works based gospel. I do understand what you are saying. Let's speak out biblically against sin, warn of the wrath to come, speak of Christ and His gospel- but let's do all this without giving kudos to those who compromise.
The Grahams have preached in every crusade they have held the biblical doctrine of salvation that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as Savior and trusting in Him alone for salvation. That does not seem like the Grahams have compromised or have a works based gospel. You must not have watched any of their crusades or else you would not state that the Grahams do not preach the biblical doctrine of salvation. Nobody in their right mind who has watched a crusade of the Grahams would state that they do not preach the biblical doctrine of salvation.

Those who possess discernment can read more about the Grahams and their ties to the RCC at http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/exposes/graham/general.htm It would truly be refreshing if wolves like Steve R. would confess their apostate beliefs and be done with it. Lukewarmness and compromise are both costly.
No the Grahams are not heavily into the Catholic Church and the unscriptural Catholic teachings(Remember there are scriptural Catholic doctrines). The Grahams have always preached the biblical doctrine of salvation that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as Savior and trusting in Jesus alone for salvation.
Dave wrote: Isn't lying bad? Both from pollies and the lies of Roman Catholicism? And if they come preaching another gospel than that delivered in the holy bible, aren't they well false prophets? Oh that's right only most of their stuff is not scriptural. So that's ok isn't john?
The Democratic Party official platform is support for abortion, homosexuality and every other perversion under the sun and thus the Democratic Party is the party of Satan. Whereas the Republican Party official platform is against abortion and homosexuality. So how can the Republican Party not be the party of Jesus when their platform is in line with the teachings of Jesus by being against abortion and homosexuality?
John UK wrote: Hi John, Much as I have a deep respect for Martin Luther and his ex-nun wife Katrina (who also escaped from the RCC), my method for formulating any teaching, including the doctrine of how to worship God in the corporate assembly, must needs be based solely on the holy scriptures. This is because the scriptures are the word of God, and are sufficient for knowledge for all things in the church, whether it be concerning faith or practice. It is far better to get your doctrine from God himself, rather than follow any man's teaching. And to get your doctrine from God, you need to be in his word every day, and ask God to conform yourself to his ways, while separating from anything that is not God's way. Anything else is shaking your fist at God, and that is not a wise thing to do. Check it out. Is there any liturgy found anywhere in the new testament?
Why do you deny that the Holy Spirit guided Luther to retain liturgical worship(minus the unscriptural parts of course) in the Lutheran Church? Luther was guided by the Holy Spirit in everything spiritual.
Well since the Sabbath is the 7th day and only Judaism keeps the 7th day Sabbath then no Christian should keep the 7th day Sabbath. Ever since Christ's Resurrection Christians have kept Sunday which is the Lord's Day and never was a Sabbath.
But In wrote: John Yurich, You are a professional antagonist. AND illogical
I am not a professional antagonist. And it is not illogical to state the Republican Party is the party of Jesus since the official Republican Party platform is against abortion and homosexuality and every other perversion under the sun.
John UK wrote: Yes, born again Anglicans need to depart from their liberal church and go elsewhere. John, a liturgical worship may be very beautiful and appear to bring glory to God. However, it is not patterned on the New Testament, because it divides the assembly of Christians into clergy and laity, where the clergy do all the work and the laity merely follow on and give responses. The choir does most of the singing, which also is not the biblical way. This is nothing like what the Apostle Paul described as a standard for biblical worship, which involves all the members of the assembly, as they are led by the Spirit. Of course, in the Roman Catholic Organisation, no-one can be led by the Spirit because they do not possess the Spirit. This is why they NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN.
Luther was guided by the Holy Spirit to retain a liturgical worship service in the Lutheran Church. So the Holy Spirit is not against liturgical worship or He would not have guided Luther to retain a liturgical worship in the Lutheran Church.
Jim Lincoln wrote: So, why do you go to a fruitcake church, John? "Despite the official position of the Catholic hierarchy on LGBT rights, in some locations, such as North America, Northern and Western Europe, support for LGBT rights (such as same-sex marriage, or protection against discrimination) is stronger among Catholics than among the general population." But of course, John, since the Romish actually condones queerness. So, just like Methodists you should, Come out of your church.
Catholics who support fruitcakeness, abortion and artificial birth control should be told to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against fruitcakeness, abortion and artificial birth control or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church does not condone fruitcakeness because official Catholic doctrine is against homosexuality and homosexual marriage.
The Bible states spare the rod and spoil the child. When I get married and have children they will toe the mark or they will either be whipped with a belt, spanked and sometimes they will be given time out.
Yawner wrote: John, Where in the Bible can I read about Mass? I've been searching for its mention, but have not found it yet.
Well naturally the word Mass is not in the Bible but the scriptural parts to the Mass(Bible readings, the doctrines found in the Apostles and Nicene Creeds, prayers to Jesus, the Lord's Prayer, the words of Jesus from the Last Supper) are from the Bible.
There is nothing to debate since the Bible states that fruitcakeness is an abomination before God. And thus those Methodist ministers should be kicked out of the ministry for performing fruitcake marriage ceremonies.
Jesus would not vote. But Jesus is in favor of the Republican Party because the Republican Party is the party of Jesus since the official Republican Party platform is against abortion and homosexuality.
Obama and all Democrats are under the influence of Satan and the demons. That is why the Democratic Party is the party of Satan. The Republican Party is the party of Jesus since the official platform of the Republican Party is against abortion and homosexuality.
