There are few arguments you can use with anyone who is deceived by Satan. The Mormons like debates, Most of them are good at it. But you can't argue a Mormon into salvation, it's only by the blood of Jesus. The Mormons have a very strange sense of logic, and where that fails them there is always a burning in their bosom.
The Book of Mormon is so easy to prove as wrong, Not one of the cities mentioned it has been located. According to it there was a great battle right here in NY that involved over a million people who all perished, But not a shred of evidence. They own all of Hill Cumorah a do not allow any digging near there. But a battle of that magnitude would have left somethingâ€¦.
There were horses involved in that battle according to the BoM. Strange how horses, which are not native to the Americas, were not introduced till some 600 years after this battle took place??? A Mormon Missionary explained it this way, â€śThey really meant fallow deerâ€™s..â€ť With logic like that you can understand why they believe things like Satan and Jesus are brothers Men can become gods There are beings living on the sun
I would suggest prayer and fasting, meet them on Gods terms not theirs.
" . . . Perhaps of even greater significance is the continuous and profound distrust of science and technology that the environmental movement displays. The environmental movement maintains that science and technology cannot be relied upon to build a safe atomic power plant, to produce a pesticide that is safe, or even bake a loaf of bread that is safe, if that loaf of bread contains chemical preservatives. When it comes to global warming, however, it turns out that there is one area in which the environmental movement displays the most breathtaking confidence in the reliability of science and technology, an area in which, until recently, no one--even the staunchest supporters of science and technology--had ever thought to assert very much confidence at all. The one thing, the environmental movement holds, that science and technology can do so well that we are entitled to have unlimited confidence in them, is FORECAST THE WEATHER!--for the next one hundred years..."
Anna Yes, the scoffers of God are gaining ground but hey God told us this would happen in 2 Pe 3:3 â€¦ there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. Iâ€™m not sure where the idea came from that we are to stop Satanâ€™s spread of evil, or that we even could. We are instructed to put on the whole armor of God and Stand, but that the battle is his.
â€śWe may be subject to authority but not to some airline authorityâ€ť Paul exhorts us in 1 Pe 2:18-19 Servants, [be] subject to [your] masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this [is] thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. This is written as servant/master but you could also place in employee/employer.
I think the best Epistle This stewardess could carry would be a walk that brings Glory and Honor to her Saviour.
I in no way believe any compromise would bring Glory to my Saviour. We should strive to live as Jesus taught.
Praise God we live where we can worship Him, and seeing things coming as fast as they are I am looking up! Waiting for the trump to call me home!
MurrayA This is Gods world but he gave the Title to Adam who forfeited it to Satan in the Garden of Eden. Jesus is described as redeeming it in Rev 5. But till then it is under Satanâ€™s rule.
Jesus tells us to Love one another and to preach his word to all of creation.
We indeed are to obey those appointed over us were it does not violate Gods laws as he has placed them there:
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God
Tit 2-3 Paul is talking about the pastoral work of a true minister; in 3:1 Paul exhorts us to â€śPut them the qualities listed in Tit 2 in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good workâ€ť 1 Pe 2:13-15 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men
I would not condemn Brother Andrew for smuggling Bibles into Russia, Iâ€™m not sure if I would do it.
I would absolutely proclaim Gods word in a Muslim state for Jesus commanded us to.
It defined homophobia as "resentment, or fear, of gay and lesbian people" which "can be just a passive dislike of gay people"]â€ť
If I say that they are dead in their sins, I am a â€ścriminalâ€ť? If I say I donâ€™t Like the way their sin is eroding society I have committed a â€śHate crimeâ€ť? If I say I am afraid of what they will do next I am a â€śhomophobicâ€ť?
This rot is spreading here as well, itâ€™s just a sign of the times.
Makes me wonder how wretched things will get when Godâ€™s Holy Spirit is no longer present on earth.
Letâ€™s look at how Jesus responds to â€śanotherâ€ť intercessorâ€¦ John 2:3-5; here after a quick rebuke Mary says to do as Jesus instructs. Luke 2:48-50; again after a quick rebuke they do not understand.
Why would you want to Idolize someone who was spiritually clueless, but says do what He says?
I like what Joshua said â€ťAs for me and my house we will serve the lord.â€ť Jos 24:15
