Troll Spotter Good Post!
Here is a song I hope will be a blessing and encouragement to you

John UK Wales Good post
Dopey (John Mark?) My brother saint John UK Wales has given you imho wise counsel
You have had in a word "your second mile" Now it is time to cease from wearing out and abusing your welcome
btw you might do well to give honest humble consideration to Troll Spotter's opposition to SteveR and other pro-Catholic propagandists (hyper "Frenchys" as well) as it might help you appreciate genuine faith in Jesus Christ and what belonging to Him should mean (I have so much learning and growing to do, along with important battles to wage in humble praying) in these prelious times when genuine faith in Jesus Christ is under assault on so many fronts and issues of life by men (some women too) who are lovers of themselves and practise a form of godliness (religion) to suit no one but their own wicked allies, themselves and the Devil they serve without concern of the judgment awaiting those in hateful rebellion against Christ and His word
I have been blessed by the ministry of Ian Paisley in listening to his sermons here on SermonAudio
Having been raised Roman Catholic, his vocal opposition ... expose of Catholicism and Billy Graham too have been 'healing' to me in my faith, a great encouragement to evangelize and witness to RCs
All that said imho SteveR's assualtive(?) behavior (John Yurich's as well) is poisonous to having a loving caring mindset towards Catholic people and their priests too that because we love the Lord Jesus Christ who died, willingly shedding His Blood for us, we would care about Roman Catholic people the same way He cared for us and do everything in our lives we might rigthfully (NOT Hatefully) do to see them saved, genuinely converted and born again of the Spirit of the Living God
We need the grace and wisdom and the Power of God desperately to see Roman Catholic people saved, for I have to think it is safe to say their Roman Catholicism enslaves and blinds them into a "pleasurable" but damnable religous fantasy of make believe
Troll Spotter wrote: How comes you semi Catholics always turn to your confessions when you want Scripture teaching? Isn't the Bible good enough for you or clear enough? And how is it you are more familiar with these men made productions than you are with the Bible? Isn't it hypocritical of you guys then to turn on Hymn singers when then is no expres warrant to only sing the Psalms or to turn on Baptists when you practice something that again has no express warrant viz infant baptism?!!! Bunch of crazies...these semi Catholics!
Troll Spotter I think it is safe to say, unless someone zealous for and into reformed theology is genuinely born again of the Spirit of the Living God they will not understand and worse they will literally hate real experiencial faith as it exposes the worthlessness of any religion without really having Jesus Christ, especially a Christless Calvinism
and it doesn't have to be this way for them
Rev 3 nasb 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.
22 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
And you imagine Almighty God bows to your pitifuly perversion of His Wonderful Almighty Holy Sovereignty?
1 John 5 nasb 9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son. 10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. 11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
Nice try, BUT looks like you are missing it. (Hint: In the Absolute Completely Wise Thoroughly Righteous Ordained before the foundation of the world Sovereignty of God, Dordt is NOT part of the Canon of Scripture, any more than the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church is! is it!)
Troll Spotter wrote: These reformed Catholics have to stick together!
Yes! and they ought to tremble in utter terror as: THE BLOOD of Jesus is against their every lie, their every slander, their every disinformation, deception, delusions, scoffing, ridicule and whatsoever is contrary to the Truth, the very Dotrine of Christ, God Himself reveals and teaching in His Holy Written Word, the Bible.
After reading the article and "scratching my head" a bit, I remembered a Pastor's wife I met in Knoxville TN
Let me tell you about it
Long years ago now when a group of street preachers was on the corner at lunch time during the work week, this pastor's wife was walking in the downtown area and came up to talk to us
She got on fire and took a turn preaching herself Boldly telling people how God could save people (from their sins) from the Whitehouse to the Whorehouse
Testifying how she had been a $100 a day heroin addict and how God had saved her and delivered her from that hellish addiction and that He could do the same thing in others too!
I think a lot of people, myself included, where wonderfully shocked with what ought to be a normal expected expression of genuine GOD FEARING Faith not the cowardly "I'm embarresed to let anyone know I am a Christian, it might offend them and they won't be my friend anymore " kind, let alone the know as one onfire for Jesus Christ who believes in the power of God to save the worst of sinners and deliver sinners out of the worst pits sin can enslave them in.
Hmmmmm, Seems I've got some prayerful relearning and a lot of repenting to do when I consider such things
Instead of being "worried" of Francis 1 we instead ought to be praying and seeking God for opportunities and wisdom to witness to Catholic people the Truth (which is right there even in their own RC Bibles)
Francis 1 may be for some precious RC people a wonderful starting point that God will use to lead them out of the mess the RCC has gotten itself mixed up in and lead them into genuine Biblical Christianity and most important personal saving faith in Jesus Christ (something the RCC isn't telling them)
Bishop wrote: Brian said the most difficult task the church has is staying relevant in the midst of same-sex communities! I have noticed that many of the Mega Church pastor's choose to not make mention of they're stance or not even take a stance at all! I was appalled with Pastor TD Jakes answer to Oprah a few years ago in a televised interview. She asked him what was his view on Same Sex Marriage and he answered that as a clergy he must state what the scripture clearly states about it BUT he has his own personal views. That hooked Oprah and won him Hollywood but how could he have a different opinion from the Word. The scripture says " Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus"
Bishop I would urge you to look up the controversy between Voddie Baucham and TD Jakes over the Trinity (if you don't know TD Jakes has been accused of being a non-Trinitarian Modalist, although he to the best of my knowledge hides it to this day)
It will help you better comprehend how the friends of/with Word of Faith (think heretical prosperity preacher TBN circles) TD Jakes could 'accomodate' the world of Oprah as he did
Mike wrote: The City Attorney is wrong, and ignorant to boot. Speaking against evil is what pastors are supposed to do. It's what they did in the years leading to the Am. Revolution. Redefining it as political speech is convenient to his ignorance, but there is nothing constitutionally that says opposing evil is political, nor that even if it were, that political speech is exempt from 1st Amendment protection. Left wing-nuts like those in Houston political leadership are good at redefinition. We shouldn't accommodate this, for it gives credibility to their argument. It has none whatsoever. 501c3 is not 1st Amend. exemption.
Mike NY Excellent post! Basically we can say, Satan and his devils are lying bullies, yes still fiendishly intellegent BUT UTTERLY STUPID COMPARED TO THE WISDOM OF GOD, WHO IS SOVEREIGN IN AND OVER ALL THINGS, who are terrified of the Lord Jesus Christ who defeated them at Calvary...and those who serve the devil do make life interesting while we joyfully wait for the return of the Risen Son of the LIVING God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
What then if some false prophet, homosexual mayors, and religous trolls don't believe? Their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God will it!

Troll Spotter Let's not forget Satan and those under his influence love to go to church (especially if they can get the church to bow down to them, such as with the Mayor of Houston TX on another thread) so we really arent' wrestling against flesh and blood in this matter
And speaking of THE BLOOD, devils hate the precious shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He willingly gave for our salvation
I suppose since the devil being the supernatural being he is, who knows Scripture, hates people knowing for themselves what God says in the Bible about His Son Jesus Christ, that his (Satan's) certain destruction and that of the Great Harlot who served him (the devil) is prophecied in the Bible and the ultimate triumph of Jesus Christ over all evil and all his enemies and to be worshipped forever

Martin TX Well said
One of many good starting points in all this mess, in great humility, brokeness and out of a repentant heart that is seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, is to drive the cowardly hirelings from the pulpits and "deaconates" (I made that up) and elderships of our churches who have made an artform of tolerance, compromise and love of the world that hates Jesus Christ, and to break fellowship with the religious businesses who have made merchandise of false teachings and false gospels in their their tv and radio networks, books, CDs, videos, stadium celebrations, movies and don't forget music
