Dolores, Precious Sister in Texas First thank you so much for your gracious posts to me. It was a joy to share with Sarah, my wife, about you having a son who is a driver, we will keep him, as well as you and your family in our prayers
And to give you an update I am no longer driving...in paying off some bills and especially in how being away and not home on a dependable schedule was increasingly hard on Sarah, I have come home
There is a lot to this story and God's providence in the timing...I needed to drive to Georgia to help my daughter in a matter for one and a lot more besides I could not have done if I was away driving
We are by no means rich but I have retirement from a former job which frees me up for ministry, 'traveling the roads' locally so to speak
So again let me express my appreciation for your graciousness and your faith, I trust God you are a blessing and an encouragement to many in the family of God
PoT You have said you are sorry So what I am posting here is for Jay Jay and I am sorry and ask your forgiveness if rehashing the matter for his sake is hurtful to you. It isn't meant to be
Jay, Jay Yes, I did call PoT a hypocrite and a liar because when I wrote it that was what he was.
On another thread about 'Mormonism' PoT falsely accused me about Glenn Beck, he later said something along the lines of pleading ignorance, but didn't apologize to me despite others varifying he had been wrong on what he posted concerning my audionews commentary, giving me opportunity on this thread to bring up 'hypocrisy' which if he had repented could have given him place to make that clear, he didn't in fact the opposite
So I called him a liar, again (isn't there something about a 2nd mile?) posting a link to prove it, which he apparently listened to and admitted (at least partially I had not said what he thought I did) but went on with IMO a lesser form of finding fault (he is entitled to his opinion)
So it appears my coolness is mistaken for rudeness, as at this time I am waiting to see how PoT speaks and acts, as there isn't trust between PoT and myself
PursuitofTruth wrote: Dear Mr. Hranek, Sorry for accusing you. The first time listening to it ii could have sworn you were talking about "you adulterer", but it appears instead that you were speaking of Liberty University. Just so you know, the passage you quoted was talking about the church, not universities. That being the case, I don't think you can level such an accusation at Liberty University because they invited Glenn Beck, because thy are a university, not a church.
Dear PoT Just so you know, it might be better for you to take a break from posting, especially in attempting to teach someone you have repeatedly falsely accused. and offended, so that you don't come across as arrogant like you know so much more and better without consideration you don't even know what someone else knows and has walked through
Perhaps in time if you take the log out of your own eye first you might see clearly how to take the speck out of anothers eye and actually be a blessing and not a stumbling block nor offense
I have to think it is safe that would be a blessing to you

Christopher000 I don't know Brennan Manning, although I have heard of The Ragamuffin Gospel and am cautious about it.
Have I ever shared with you the red pen principle? My pastor in Knoxville taught it to me.
Read anything you want but read it prayerfully paying close attention to whether or not it lines up with Biblical Truth in the context of all of Scripture. Mark (as with a red pen) those things that you find that don't and putting down Scripture references why, mark those that are likewise clearly Biblical with references why. In this way you can be obedient to 'Despising not prophecying but examine everthing, holding fast to that which is good.'
Remember don't give anybody a pass because they are popular. Scripture tells us of Peter, a genuine Apostle used by the Spirit to write 2 Books in the Bible, who nevertheless came under the influence of false teaching and needed the rebuke Paul gave him in Galatians.

For the sake of others, as politely and respectfully as I might:
My words are recorded and available to listen to, if I had actually said what you falsely accuse me of you could have quoted me and written out what I said. Is the reason you didn't and couldn't because

Unohoo654 And just how do you think Christians should and ought to be calling for "these judges" to be removed from office?
How about humble broken contrite repentant prayer?
You know like doing some serious soul searching of one's own obedience (or not) to the God of the Bible, confession and forsaking one's own sinners first, begging God to forgive and cleans us first and because it is truly wicked evil sin against the Lord Jesus Christ seeking the Lord to remove/change judges (how about some beloved famous pastors too) who are in gross disobedience against His word
trembling if God gave us, and our churches, what we deserve that He would have destroyed us, cursed us and sent us into hell forever long ago, weaping at how long suffering He has been to the likes of even us who all to often post the things we do here on SermonAudio
PursuitofTruth wrote: Agreed Christopher. I abhore "Christians" who turn to such hateful tactics. While they point at the speck in other people's eyes, they totally ignore the beam in their own! These people are Pharasaical, rude excuses of Christians!
Do you mean things like blasting a man because he dares point out a false Christian (as in Mormon) like Glenn Beck and how those professing to be Christian ought not invite such a man in to speak in their assembly if they are seeking to be faithful to Christ?
Hmmm? Let me ask you did Jesus ever call those who condemned others while they were actually doing the very thing they accused others of doing (sinning) something like...hypocrites?

David Baker I feel compelled to compliment, NOT and in NO WAY agree with you on your post
It reminds me of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed the movie by Ben Stein, who is Jewish not even Christian on the subject of creation (really tying enormously on the subject of freedom)
So thank you for reminding me of such things as prejudice and the amazing genuis of intellectual (scientific?) fascism
Sometimes disquising a hateful animosity of what the Bible actually says
Christopher000 wrote: What bothers me above everything is this generation and the next being lied to by sodomite leaders, spokespersons, and the medical community.

Because of this outrageous lie, they attend church in complete comfort, preach from the pulpits, marry each other, and wave the world to.come on in as God welcomes one and all...
Christopher000 It is not just Sodomite leaders who are lying to them but like you have said leaders today's churches who overemphasize the love of God without explain how that love is an undeserved sacrifical love of such magnitude in the shed blood of Christ, in the Cross, in His resurrection that in coming to know Him, He will utterly change their lives
So if you are willing let me recommend once again THE FURY OF GOD by Jeremy Lundmark who I recently had the priviledge of INTERVIEWING and in rereading his book a second time know we could have literally talked for hours of the wonderful depth he goes into on balancing out God's anger against all sin and His mercy for us
Derrow Kindly get real. God Almighty doesn't need the systematic theology of Johnny of Geneva and friends to teach people what finally is real Christianity some 1400 to 1500 years after the resusrrection and the close of the Canon of Scripture with Revelation anymore than the religious fantasy the RCC has given men that 'baby jesus needs his moma to save sinners'
If you want to have problems it ought to be with the religous genuis calling his/her self "Remain Biblical" and quote: "Calvinism is the Bible the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible."
Hint: the Bible was written long before Dhort and the WCF, or is Scripture just somehow not good enough for you?
Remain Biblical wrote: Calvinism is the Bible the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible
Boy! oh Boy! What amazing theology Does it go something like that if you confess with your mouth Johnny of Geneva, all 5 petals, let's not forget Dhort and the WCF (btw that' not the Wrestling Calvinist Federation) and believe, really, really believe you are EEEEElect! (Zowie) than you will be a true prostylete and when the Institutes of Calvin are opened in the AAAAAmillennium (spelling?) kingdom judgment you'lll get a prize
Dorcas wrote: Sorry to hijack this thread, but I would please ask my sisters and brethren on this site for prayer. Concerning our youngest grandchild who knows not the Lord, and has just gone thru a violent traumatic event. Is having a very difficult time. Thank you for those who the Lord leads in this matter.
Dorcas Wow! What a wonderful matter to be praying about. I have to think God knows there is so very much that He must needs do to bring your grandchild to genuine conversion, to being truly born again of the Holy Spirit, to knowing the Truth personally for himself in good conscience before God and not just conforming to the religious desires of others, considering all the influences of the world and those professing to be Christians that have pushed him this way and that in the life he has.
It will indeed be a great joy to hear his testimony of all that God does to make real the Truth of the Lord Jesus Christ in his life, bringing him under the genuine conviction of the Holy Spirit and giving him the desire to be saved from his sins and belong to the Savior and to love Him and serve Him who died and rose again for him and how God brought him to saving faith to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
Jim Lincoln wrote: Ah, Michael, there is a book in the Bible that deals with the wrath of God. It's mainly about the Divine retribution for Sin, q.v., Revelation Series 2008. No, liberal churches especially don't want to take the Book of Revelation literally.
Jim It is not necessarily just "liberal" churches (Yes, who do have the Book of Revelation in their Bibles) that do not want to take the warnings of God of His certain judgment seriously
JEREMY LUNDMARK''s book THE FURY OF GOD deals with attitudes that have come into today's typical churches that claim to be Bible Believing, Fundemental or even Reformed and does much to correct them with Biblical Truth
Jim Lincoln wrote: No, Strat, though God is colorblind when it comes to race. I've seen white racists and I've seen black racists, and both are obnoxious.
Jim Only slightly related to this news thread, I had the priviledge of INTERVIEW JEREMY LUNDMARK who wrote the newly release book THE FURY OF GOD and I thought you might like to check it out. I believe it is safe to say you are not likely to find any other book that deals with the very important subject of the fury (the wrath) of God like this one does, when so many in today's modern day churches want their ears tickled
PursuitofTruth wrote: And as for you Michael Hranek, you seem to have done a hateful rant hardly deserving the title of a sermon on Glenn Beck and Mormonism a few years back. So of course you have a vested interest in attacking me as you have done. For everybody interested in seeing this rant just look up "beck" in SermonAudio sermons and then look for this Michael Hranek fellow.
O Dear "POT" I haven't attacked you. I've warned of you there is a difference
Dorcas wrote: Personally brethren.....I believe we have an individual who is either of the emergent "church" or of the ecumenical stripe, on board.
Dorcas I heard that
Sunday at church we had an individual who essentially threw a fit that our Pastor and myself refused to accept that Glenn Beck, who is a professing Mormon, was really a closet Christian who believed in being born again.
Beware, and that big time, wolves sometimes come in a sheeps' clothing of being so caring, tenderhearted and ultimately if you all are willing, implying to us that the Bible actually doesn't really say what it says and you really can't judge anyone if they are actually a Christian or not by what the Bible says, and what church they joined and thrown in their alligiance to.
IMHO we don't need such people on our church membership roles, let alone in any leadership whatsoever, lest they accursedly lead others astray
