People who never have to face these family struggles will never understand how hard it is to take Christ ahead of our families, but we are called to do that. I agree with you about the younger generation, but I hope that doesn't include our younger Christians. I have always said that no one will have an excuse when they stand before the Lord on judgment day. They will either be guilty or all of their sins have already been forgiven and He will simply say to them, come with Me. I know ladies don't like to give their ages, so you have no responsibility to do that. My guess is I am older; I am 68 years old. Notice I didn't say 68 years young.
You are three years older than my hubby. That's all I'll divulge on the matter. Have a good evening brother.
Frank, You must be in our age group, for we have similar thoughts on what and who is destroying the culture, a lot of the younger generation would completely disagree with the things you mentioned. We were castigated by family members for not attending a funeral service for a relative that was conducted by a lesbian 'minister' and her sodomite attendant ... We are joining you and others in prayer also.
NB, Thank you for your reply. Yes indeed, leaving Romanism is viewed by unsaved ones as turning your back on your culture and family. All our family is sill enslaved to popery,,,we know our GOD is sovereign and if they are ordained to eternal life they will believe. We pray on...will remember your also in prayer. Blessings in the Beloved. MS
Frank, I too was raised in that cult. John Y never provides scripture, only mans creeds and his own delusional opinion. I have a RC catechism and I can list all that they teach concerning their goddess. See it in my own family...always clutching rosaries, have them hanging on their bed posts, sleep with them under their pillows. John Yurich is a deceived individual at best or just another RC troll.
John Yurich, Don't come around here with your satanic babble. Take a gander at the picture in the above article....ahem.....she has a rosary wrapped round her hand praying to the goddess that your cult worships
Frank wrote: I remember Obama's first run for president. He was asked by Rick Warren if he knew when life began. Obama said, that was over his pay grade. The fact that he admitted to not knowing and still promotes this hideous procedure makes him a mass murderer even worse than someone who promoted or participated in the holocaust. Like I have asked over and over again, when would someone say that Christ became fully human in our dynamic time. They must say it was at His conception. And except for having no earthly father, His birth was the same as anyone else's. Shame on anyone who gets an abortion or those who promote abortions or those who vote for those who actively promote abortions. Shame on all of them. But anyone who reads this and has had an abortion or in some way encouraged one then they simply have to confess that sin to Christ and if He is their Lord and Savior, it will no longer even be a memory to Him. His love and forgiveness is so wonderful and I thank Him for it.
Very well said Frank. Abortion is both immoral and criminal. It requires both the Christian's disapprobation and the states equitable punishment.

So any comment about 'lone wolves' in those circumstances is unjust. Assembling with unbiblical gatherings will leave us far colder and useless than any lone believer who the Lord has separated from such! And as Spurgeon said: Banished from the public means of grace, we are not removed from the grace of the means. The Lord who places His people where they feel as exiles will Himself be with them. 2 Cor 6 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive ***you***, 18And will be a Father unto ***you***, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty Deut 32: 10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: 12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him
Your post was a blessing to me. Thank-you. very comforting scriptures too!
John UK, Where I live, I wouldn't send my dog to the apostate buildings that try to fly under the banner of Christian. I agree with what you say, but 1517 is way out of line with his remarks, making blanket statements on other believers, who he does not know or their particular situation. Wow....how about some encouragement or prayer instead of trite and self-righteous remarks, that might be the proper attitude for us 'lone wolves'
Thanks Frank...you are quite a blessing to this MB.
To the Pharisees who like to trot out their religious shoptalk and condemn others..ever think of praying for those who are without an assembly ?? Nah...much easier to sit in Moses seat and pass judgement. .thumbsdown:
Can I be a Christian without joining the church? Absolutely Many are without local assemblies to gather with like minded brothers and sisters. Let's not fall into 'I go to 'church' so I must be a Christian' mentality.
John Yurich USA wrote: Rubio is going against Catholic teaching for stating he would attend a homosexual wedding. Catholic teaching states that no Catholic should attend a homosexual wedding.
The Bible states that one who is a born from above disciple of Jesus Christ loves Him and shows obedience by OBEYING HIM. Hence would not be yoked with an apostate religion that is of the devil. 2 Cor. 6:14-18.
