Great Sermon! Mike I enjoy your sermons more than I can tell. They are HONEST AND FROM THE CARING HEART. I can feel the Holy Spirits presents listening to your messages. I enjoy your political correctness ??. Keep up the good faith.
I pray regularly for your ministry and especially for your health.

(Unlikely - How could we be certain our sailors would ever be returned?) 2. The US allows the boats to be "captured" and "returned" as part of a scripted attempt to boost Iran's credibility in the West. (Hence John Kerry's fawning all over the Iranians for "returning" the sailors, all the while Iran is threatening our fleet.) As I understand it, the sanctions against Iran are due to be removed in a few days. Wha-lah! This incident (supposedly) gives legitimacy to the Iran Nuclear Deal. Am I becoming paranoid like the voices say I am?
Voices don't cause clear thinking like that. They may make you type non sense rants in LL CAPS though
From the standpoint of a U.S. citizen, this person has to be stopped and removed from office as soon as possible. What it will lead to is being prosecuted if you warn that there is an Islamic terrorist outside with guns and bombs. Besides, anyone that holds such an office aught to be able to pronounce the word "Defendants" correctly. not defrendants.
As a Christian I know we better get ready soon to go to jail for being obedient to the Lord. Most of us could already be on some list.
Compulsive texting, games ect. is taking it's toll in every area of life. The economy: 60% of office workers are spending 80% of their time at work, on their phone. In relationships; people on dates have their face in their phone. At Church; people go the whole service on their phones. And not reading the bible on them. It is only getting worse. I would become Amish, if the Amish allowed air conditioners. It's way hot here in Alabama

Sadly, that is true of many articles. The first few posts have to do with the topic, then it goes all over the place. After that comes the fighting. The same people using the same arguments for the past 15 years. Don't get me wrong there has always been some good solid, biblically informed people who posts here. But, yeah I am with you. The world is going to hell and some armchair theologians spend all their time majoring on secondary issues and calling people names.
VanPastorMan wrote: I agree with most of MacArthur's article. But I also would like to interject something Richard Baxter the Puritan pastor said in,"The Reformed Pastor". He asked the question whether a pastor can be restored back into ministry after committing shocking sin? He said the pastor must for a long time sit on the back pew and after some time when people remember his repentance more than they do his sin, then he is fit to come to the front of the church again. MacArthur's point a extremely valid. Is a year long enough to accomplish this? No way!
Good quote. It seems some only want Ro. 11:29 to apply to salvation.
The idea that it won't affect military readiness is proof that insanity has set in. I used to be a night chaplain at a downtown homeless shelter, and we had a "guy" come in that was getting ready for a sex change operation. Which dorm do we put him in? Up top he was woman. Can't put him in the men's dorm, there will be night time activity we don't want. Can't put him in the women's dorm. He still has male parts. The women will object, possibly.
We had to make a place for this person all by themselves.
Cleansed wrote: This issue and many other issues relative to "diversity" is a result of racism that was not properly dealt with years ago. And by 'racism,' I mean specifically the racism of discriminating against Black people and those having inherited one small drop of blood in their lineage. The book "The Source" tells us how people are classified. You can stick your head in the sand if you want, but when you do, you'll find a buried treasure of truth. "Sin is added to sin." We can treat another human being as being inferior to ourselves if we so choose. Our offspring will live with the results. This is what we are dealing with - people not respecting and loving TRUTH.
I have been noticing your threads recently, and those of someone called 'Get Real' I'm missing something. How do the issues of Heterosexual Marriage and Gender Distinction equate to Racism? Was the teacher black and all the people in disagreement white? Even if that were the case, to judge their motives as Racist before knowing the full story is Pre Judging. I believe that is where the word prejudice comes from.
