To all who read this from outside of Australia I just wanted to say that whilst I personally did not attend any of these protests I have relatives and friends who did. There were no clashes of protesters at either the Brisbane or Adelaide rallies. The counter protests organised by the left had less than 50 people show up in both cities. The protest was primarily against halal certification which is being revealed to be money laundering rort that is basically functioning as an Islamic consumption tax on the general population with little or no control over the way the money raised from halal certification is being used. In other words many believe it's funding terrorism. Always remember our media here is left biased to an unbelievable degree.
Good Argumentation MacArthur states in his study Bible in the study notes on John 7:53-8:11.
"In spite of all these considerations of the unlikely unreliability of this section ,it is possible to be wrong on the issue, and thus it is good to consider the meaning of this passage and leave it in the text, just as with Mark 16:9-20."
Great Sermon! Thank You Brother for your strong stand. The Lord is sovereign and this is just another example of "we will not have this man to rule over us". You have my prayers as you contend for the faith their in Idaho.
Attacked??? I expected the article to reveal she was physically attacked...Western Christianity is bizarre and out of touch with the rest of the family of God who know what attack means. I don't mean to be critical. I just wonder how long American Christianity escapes persecution.
Great Sermon! Very good series of lessons on John 3 vs. 16. I recommend each of these lessons if one is interested on what Jesus is teaching us in John 3. I appreciate your study on this very important subject matter. It is very dangerous for people to go around telling people that God loves them.
By the way...regarding my last post...when I say read Josephus I mean "READ" it. Don't quote someone who read it like the author did. And join me in prayer for the salvation of the author's soul. If he doesn't believe in CHRIST then he surely doesn't believe he has a soul and that saddens me.
FUNNY... I cannot seem to find historical record of the "big bang" but just read Josephus (not a Christian) if nothing else and you will find accounts of Jesus' existence and then follow up with "The Case for CHRIST". Then STUDY prophecy and find how the author of the article fulfills prophecy. Maranatha!
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: Isaiah 5:20,25 Just a thought of where we are in the End Times Time table.
Hey John, your a bit of a distraction and your own stumbling block. Why don't you be a little less confrontational. Besides, check out what the AnaBaptists were about...maybe Perry needed a scriptural baptism.
What I'm trying to figure out is why such hard comments would be made about a politician taking a step in the right direction; or at least in a positive direction toward Holiness. I know if he's been Baptized already then he need not do it again. But we don't know what has gone on in his heart as if late. I would rather see our leaders move in that direction toward God, than away from God as so many are doing. We need to check our cynicism at the door and watch and pray that ye (they) enter not into temptation. For the spirit is willing l, but the flesh is weak.
