Will remember Lorretta in prayer. Before the Lord graciously saved me, I loved my happy hour juice. Praise Him, I abhor it now, can't even stand the smell of it.
Dave wrote: Sf Gday mate. :-D Lord bless. On a completely different tangent. I just listened to Justin peters here on SermonAudio, titled sola scriptura. I found it excellent. Not trying to push an agenda, it was an edifying sermon. I believe all on here could benefit if you could spare 1hr its worth the time. Ms , John and Christopher I believe you'd all get value from it. :-) God bless.
Hola Dave, Will give a listen..thanks. When I watch the Aussie on the simple cooking channel you are brought into remembrance. Peace and grace.
A holy anger against sin and a forgiving spirit towards sinners, is the mark of a true child of God. The person who has no concern to oppose wickedness in this world does not know the holiness of God or the sinfulness of sin. If more Christians today felt holy anger against sin, the church might have a more effective witness as the salt of the earth and the light of the world!

Dave wrote: It really dumbfounds me when Christians point out wrongful behaviour by other Christians, which we're too do, then others become offended? Sc good onya. Apostasy, and twisting of the gospel ( idolatry ), creep in slowly like cancer undetected. Like ecumenical worship, charismatic Pentecostals, all behaviour needs pulling into line especially when the Robertson's have such an audience. The person who seems here to be nameless you are using unrighteous judgement against people doing what God tells us to do, bring sin to light fullstop. Not pretend it's not there, I used to watch the show when I was unsaved, and it is completely in the world and jovializes sin. Maybe YOU would find more in common with people on a different forum, if calling sin out hurts your feelings!
Well said Dave.. Robert W.Reed here on SA has a beneficial talk on "Duck Dynasty " Sept. 2013.
---- Warning : Not for the super sensitive who get offended easy..
