Now the way some Calvinists/Reformed twist things up it is sometimes amazing that anybody comes to Salvation with heavy handed 5 pointers discouraging people from crying out to God to save them because that might be DIY Salvation.

Sounds good to me. This is possibly the best thing for these poor people duped by these charlatans. Maybe now they will seek the truth, and live productive lives rather than promulgating A/G false doctrine.
I believe if we study carefully, we would see large differences between the prosperity theology of today and the Protestant work ethic of the reformation. For instance, prosperity theology can not even define the gospel of the NT that it professes to believe. It is also interesting that prosperity theology is predominantly in Pentecostal churches. This is not an accident but one of a number of consequences to the errors of this movement.
Where are they getting the money to aid these Muslims? I thought American taxpayer money was going to pay on mounting Chinese debt. Please don't tell me we a borrowing from the Chinese to buy peace with our enemies.
Christianity has never been in crisis; that which not Christianity is in crisis and always shall be. "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. "(Isaiah 54:17 KJV)
In order to redistribute wealth, the government must steal from one to give to another. This is a violation of the commandment, "Thou shalt not steal". There is no exception to this law nor exclusion for government officials to skim off the top in the transfer.
John for Jesus wrote: Haven't you ever read Acts 2:38 where Peter tells the people to repent and be baptized for the remission of sins? Baptism cleanses believers from sin. It's in the Bible, unlike infant baptism.
John, I think you should study a little more before you make such comments. Start with Collosians 2 for example.
Harold is a perfect example of what happens to dispensationalists who take their theological arguments to their full irrational conclusions. They would sooner give up the gosple than surrender their Scoffeild map of the future. It all begins with a faulty definition of faith and justification.
