Pray on Grateful for our families, nation and the world,
Nice to see you posting again. Psalm 67 is one of our favorites to sing to our Great God.
The psalmist wants all nations to praise God, who is a just ruler of people and a guide for all the countries, as he states in vs. 3-4.
John UK wrote: It is good to visit prisoners with the intention of bringing Jesus to them. God bless all who engage in such work. Trouble is, the pope's way of bringing Jesus to them is to have Jesus made in a bakery and winery, do his magic show, and then offer Jesus to everyone, saying, "Take eat, this is Jesus, receive Jesus. Drink his blood, this is Jesus, now you have eternal life."
Charles Hodge wrote: "No more soul-destroying doctrine could well be devised than the doctrine that sinners can regenerate themselves, and repent and believe just when they please...it is a truth both of scripture and of experience that the unrenewed man can do nothing of himself to secure his salvation"... Glad to see that a few are not being silent regarding these unbiblical ecumenical practices of the BGEA. Thousands have been counseled into a false hope. Sinners have been directed to walk down to the front to 'make their decisions', when they should be pointed to Christ alone.
THE HIGH CALLING OF PREACHING HAS DEGENERATED INTO A SERIES OF GIMMICKS AND TRICKS.
May God have mercy on those who have been so deceived by these hucksters!
That was the purpose of my post....to give glory and praise to Jesus Christ my Lord and my God. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13
Frank wrote: Well sister, according to JohnUK, you and I should simply keep our mouths shut. Neither of us are ordained preachers. John, if I said what you said I said, then I shouldn't have said it. But, I don't remember saying that unless you are twisting something that was close to it. I have always maintained that God doesn't need BG,FG or any of the popes "or me" to accomplish His will and the salvation of His elect. But, He also doesn't need for someone to have a ministry of the means justifies the end and the greater good concept. I can't believe I do so much editing. I guess I get carried away.
The blessed Lord and Saviour saved this wretch at home with my Bible.. To God be the Glory Great things He has done.
s c wrote: It is by preaching and not by the preacher. Is it not by the Word and Holy Spirit? Those who are in Christ are exercising REASONABLE service in the Great Commission and are pleased to give God the Glory. No man should exalt himself or let himself be exalted because he gives the gospel... silly rabbit
And this is the verse: Therefore let no man glory in men: 1 Cor. 3:21.
Frank wrote: SteveR, BG,FG and the pope are not dignities. Jude 1:8 Jude 1:9 is referring to doing battle with satan himself. Revelations 12:10,11 are referring to an end time scenario. Context, context, context. But, the principle could also be applied to today. We should never do what you do and accuse the brethren of false things. What accusations made were false? 215
Hey Frank, The accuser of the brethren always firing scripture verses(out of context) like a madman with an assault rifle.
Hey John UK, that is a lot of surmising on your part as to how 'us girls' share the gospel. Don't know where you came up with that diatribe that you posted, but it is a total falsehood concerning how I speak to individuals about eternal matters. This thread is about the ecumenical facade that BGEA is involved in with false religion. The scriptures warn us that in the end times the greatest threat to the truth will not come from hostile atheistic types but from false teachers claiming to be Christian.
A bunch of lies eh? Would suggest you check out some of the Baptist Pastors on Sermon Audio who have preached to warn people of the Graham's and their ecumenical ties with your beloved RC. Here is a name to get you started. Jason Cooley There are many more who are not afraid to speak out against the BGEA...but you prefer to stick your head in the sand.
