Moslems can find out about Jesus Christ through the gospels of matthew, mark, luke, john. these are preserved first century, eye witness accounts of the life of Christ here with us, Emmanuel, God with us. They'll get the straight story there.

the context is a sinful world, and if I waited until I could deal with all sin at once before I did anything, I think I would quite feel like the Greek god Atlas, carrying the world upon my shoulders. Anyone who loves Christ will encounter sin, people will curse, they will have unthankful hearts, and turn to entertainment and their hearts will grow cold and serve themselves, "eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we...". you see? I know the world is corrupt. times that the world brings me a litmus test of depravity that I cannot participate and cannot acknowledge. That day has come and has begun. the kind lady is just the beginning. If whiny reprobates want to stop all forms of buying and selling unless Christians give homage to their confusion to somehow placate their consciences, I might remind them this has all been foretold in scripture. All people are born with this nature to self deceive, its no surprise and I hold no anger towards them, except it should be known their wicked ways do not resolve the abuse of the young but rather promote it. So as far as I'm concerned, since purification has begun, I'll support the brethren in their day of trial.
Ladies, I might ask you to prayerfully consider if you think it appropriate everytime there is a difference of opinion to all pop up and list the names of people you agree with. Do you not trust the Lord to work? Does this not create schisms? I'm not saying there isn't a place for agreement, but could this be why the gentlemen on here get frustrated? Does not each person have a slightly different angle to things, so why create two teams?
I'm not on anyone's team, except I just want Christ glorified. (and I'm not suggesting that is what you intend to do) I do consider you all my sisters, just something to think about....
I just wanted to say that I'm thankful to SA and everyone for this thread.
As a youth there were many worldly entrapments and very few adults who were mature in the faith and had an eye for these things. So the Lord taught me but the hard way.
But the pattern in scripture is that Godly parents and believers raise up the next generation in the admonitions of the Lord, and not to be running away or be isolated from it.
To be in it but not be of it.
Children today are hearing her music 24/7 because they play it on their cell phones and IPODS. They carry this stuff into churches, into Christians homes.
I know when I hear a song, what the message is.
Do you all know what is being fed into their minds right before your eyes?
Do you know what these songs are teaching them?
I have great concern for the woman this article is about. I believe that the music industry in many way is a sex trade. As long as they have given their soul to the devil, they will play along. When they try to get out, all sorts of trouble comes to them.
Chrisitans SHOULD be praying for them, with a hard dose of reality. When someone is possessed by devils, you don't come with a little scripture calendar and a teddy bear. Scripture says to fast and pray.
the makers of the polio vaccine knew about the cancer S40 virus back then, some tried to warn and were silenced, now older folks are laden with cancers... (not that this would be only cause) and medical establishment tells them its "genetic"... so in the end our whole society reaps what is sows, if they realize it or worship the Darwin god all the way to the end.
Unprofitable Servant, thank you for kindly giving good example here, even sharing your own testimony. I think it is possible for us to deal with issues of carnality without dragging everyone who reads through the miry clay. I think Lady Virtue is a Godly example in this regard as Mr Hranek pointed out.
Did you notice, now that the western funded jihadists have disrupted society for "that greater agenda" in Syria (not that Christians should care about politics, per Romans 13)... and the Christians slaughtered, the Islamic refugees will then be spread across the states...
WND: "Secret planting of up to 75,000 Syrian Muslims begins in U.S."
According to the article Lincoln, Nebraska will be taking many Syrian Moslem refugees.
"More than 3 million Syrians have fled their country because of the ongoing civil war between forces loyal to President Bashar Assad and several Islamic rebel groups including ISIS, the al-Qaida-affiliated al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army. Assad is a member of the minority Alawite sect which is fighting the coalition of Sunni Muslim rebels. Christians have been largely protected by the Alawite regime, worshiping freely in centuries-old Syrian churches, many of which now lie in ruins."
