I can relate, the lack of honoring the office during this admin. Writing in a candidate will be the only way for me to vote this election. I pray no offense has been created here. My intentions in writing to begin with were in reaction to some earlier posts. I'm afraid we, like so many cultures before us, have moved so far away from Holiness that even the Godly are far away. I often think of the fact that Samson was among his peers, the one whom God chose as their deliverer. How far had the culture slid for Samson to be God's man. Maybe history repeats itself.
Jim, you would vote for anybody who endorses the murder of babies, stands by while Hero's die defending one of her state department out posts, lies to you, me, congress and the American people. Thanks, but no thanks for your endorsement. You might mean well, but no thank you.
Steve R. Remember D. Bonhoeffer. I know we are not Nazi Germany. And I'm NOT comparing Trump to Hitler. But we cannot make small compromises today that will lead to greater ones. Even the nation of Israel offered their children on the altars of Molech.
What we see in our nation currently is proof we are being judged now. If your convinced Mr. Trump will do what you have stated then your conscience is clear. But I've interviewed and hired many people and based on what I've seen during Donald's interview, coupled with his resume...I cannot hire him. Why, like cattle, do we blindly do our "civic duty" and follow the other cow's in front of us believing we have to vote for a man you would be embarrassed to introduce to your mother. Let alone the King of kings. Friends we are Servants of Christ before we are American citizens. And I am an American through and through. But the Kingdom of God is eternal, what we have now in America is temporary. Our country's problem is not who sits In The Oval Office. The problem is with us and how we live-we need to worthy of the cross of Christ.
It's interesting to me that we seem to be American Christians instead of Christian Americans when it comes to politics. Between the two, Hillary and Donald, which one would you stand before God with a clear conscience having voted for? Our civic duty cannot Trump our faithfulness to Christ. We of little faith. I'm not trying to be self-righteous. God has delivered His people through their righteous actions, not their compromises. Trump and Clinton are offensive to God because they are unrepentant. They are therefore offensive to me and are not worthy of the office of President.
I'm kind of amazed at all the Ted hate out there. I'm with Cory from mi...lets see what November brings, then we will know whom the Cruz's we're hearing from. And what's up with a Mother Jones hit piece as a source in this forum?!?!?
Thanks for taking a stand against PayPal. One problem with many Christians is we continue to do business with these who stand against us. We should pray for these people, but I don't think we should finance their ungodly business.
Not so sure you are correct. I don't believe you are very well informed on London churches or indeed 'Justin Welby'- a very poor choice to represent anything â€˜Christianâ€™-a strange â€˜evangelical' on record as celebrating â€˜the riches of Benedictine and Ignatian spiritualityâ€™ and is ecumenical in his praise for the pope. (note the 39 Articles of the Church of England!) He worshipped at Holy Trinity, Brompton, where the Alpha Course was pioneered. These sort of ecumenical/charismatic/Pentecostal type churches may be growing and attracting immigrants, but are they really the work of God? It isn't always the Biblical gospel that is being preached, but rather the â€˜Jesusâ€™ of ALPHA portrayed more as a â€˜Solver of human problemsâ€™ rather than as a â€˜Saviour from sinâ€™
You should examine the solid churches in the UK on SermonAudio who represent those who are faithful to Godâ€™s Word. Few are large in number, but they evidence the work of Godâ€™s grace. One such church would be Spurgeonâ€™s old church: The Metropolitan Tabernacle-Dr Peter Masters.
I would submit that outside of London there is far less than 1% attending church and in some areas you can travel many miles before you find any faithful Christian never mind a church!
Don't forget the 1st part of 2 Peter 3 vs.9 which says, "long suffering to us". Peter is writing to believers (2 Peter 1 vs.1;2 Peter 3 vs1) and are a different group than the scoffers in vs.3. It seems clear to me that it is the elect that He is not willing to perish and come to repentance. If God desired everybody to repent and be saved could He not do it? John 5 vs.21; John 17 vs.2; 2 Timothy vs.24-25.
I am a little bewildered by some of the Brother's and Sister's comments about Franklin Graham. He has a large voice. He is taking a strong stand for the truth. You may question his motives, fair enough. But praise what is praise worthy. And besides, Php 1:15, 18 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will...What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
Amen! Man is dead spiritually and therefore unable to do anything on his own. Yes, that means that he cannot make a "decision" for the Lord of his own choice. The Lord Jesus told the man with the withered hand to "stretch out your hand". The man under his own power could not do so, but through the power of Jesus, he could and he did. So it is with salvation...Salvation is of the Lord!
Has the day of rest changed? Reggie -
I like your sermons. Just wondering if the Sabbath day has changed? If so could you preach on it? This verse is old but I'm told our God is the same one who pened this. "Ihate the double-minded, But I love Your law. You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. Depart from me, you evildoers, For I will keep the commandments of my God! (?Psalms? ?119?:?113-115? NKJV)". God Bless-Scott
Yes, I agree with you. The Bible declares the sovereignty of God from Genesis to Revelations and yet many "believers" make light of the Sovereign Potter. He created and sustains all things. He sends the rain and brings drought. He kills and He makes alive. He does as He pleases in Heaven, earth, seas, and all deep places. He choose Israel and not all nations. He called Abram out of Ur. He called Moses, Noah, His Apostles. He laid His life down, it was not taken from Him. He has power over all flesh...and yet He is worried about man choosing to let Him be the Lord of their life. I don't think so.
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.
