Utterly pathetic performance from a psuedo-Christian, a charlatan, and an imposter. True Christians, and faithful Pastors, don't squirm and wriggle when straight questions are asked.They just simply say: "Thus saith the Lord". Osteen is so afraid of offending people that he offends God instead. Talk about speaking out of both sides of your mouth - "gay" marriage is a sin, but I would go along to be part of the wickedness!

If Reformation leader Luther held to that, he suffered from insufficient reformation.
Romans 6:14-18
"For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered to you.
Being then made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness."
Maybe Luther couldn't read well.
You obviously can't read well either my friend. Do not selectively quote the great man. Luther had lots of faults, but was still a giant compared to today's pygmies who criticise him. We owe men like Luther an incalculable debt. Those who want to make him (or his writings)responsible for the ravings or actions of a murderous lunatic are beneath contempt.

Actually he is soon to turn 90 years old - and yes he looks rather like a corpse. He is certainly dead from the neck up!

Sorry Jim, but the Sabbath for Christians is indeed the first day of the week - the Lord's Day. Sabbath means "rest", not "Saturday". When Jesus said, "If ye love me keep my commandments" is that "legalism"? Sounds like law to me...commandments. The Apostle Paul said he rejoiced "in the law of God after the inward man". He also said he was "under the law to Christ". If it was wrong to steal, or lie, or commit adultery before salvation then it is still wrong after salvation. Christ fulfilled the law for us, and silenced its condemning voice. That does not mean it is abrogated - it is not. The moral law is a way of life for Christians, and not a way TO life.

A preacher who becomes increasingly popular is like a man climbing a ladder - the higher he goes the more precarious his position becomes, and the more danger there is of him falling. Piper is not the only one who needs to take heed to this.

....I am not a follower of Camping,but the earth in itself changed since that day.
Really Cazares? You could have fooled me. You sound like one of the "koolaid" drinkers to me! Harold Camping is a dangerous fool - a maverick, self-appointed spokesman for God. The only thing worse than his wild ramblings is the multitude of sad devotees he has attracted through the years who believe the nonsense he spouts. If you listen again to his "Open Forum" from yesterday he denied several vital doctrines of the Bible, including eternal punishment and the necessity of faith in Christ. He is entirely heterodox in many of his views. The very idea that people can be saved without any knowledge of the Bible - which he asserted in answer to a question about whether Jews and other religions would be saved - is heretical, and actually damnable doctrine. Camping is essentially a cult leader, a spiritual snake-oil salesman if you will. Despite his evangelical background he cannot be described any longer as an evangelical. Sadly the world lumps all professing Christians together with this charlatan. But praise God, the truth will go marching on in spite of the falsehoods of men like Camping.

Since I presume you're not a pantheist, you must have a more specific sense in mind.
How perceptive of you to presume that. I thought you might be clever enough to figure out what I did mean by it, i.e. A true believer does not live a "Christian" life and a "secular" life - he is a Christian everywhere he goes, even his place of business.

Chick fil-A is no more a Christian organization than American Motors was a Mormon organization when George W. Romney was its CEO.
They don't claim to be a Christian business - that was a description used by the student. However, the CEO is a professing Christian and his ethos is stamped all over the business - as one would/should expect of a Christian businessman. I appreciate the company's stance on the Lord's Day (i.e.not open for business that day)and the way they seem to treat their employees. A Christian should run his business as a Christian ought to, and is commanded to. And churches ought to operate in a business-like fashion, especially where finances are concerned. To the Christian nothing is secular, but all is sacred.

The annual NFL spectacle known as "Superbowl" attracts billions of TV viewers. Being held,unsurprisingly, on a Sunday Evening each year many professing Christians (including Pastors)are so obsessed with this football "worship" that it is viewed as a "must-see" event for them and their churches. To avoid the vexing dilemma of whether they ought to stay home, and miss church for a sporting event, some have come up with the novel idea of showing the game on large-screens at their churches. Realizing that when it comes to a choice between God and the World, He always loses out to the World and its toys, these "Christians" have decided to act on the principle:"If you can't beat them, join them". So it is that the world comes into the church, in the form of "Superbowl services". However worldly consciences are salved by the inviting of "sinners" to these events, where they can be entertained (along with all the millions of TV viewers) by the "pig-skin" during the game, and then "evangelized" at half-time by means of video "testimonies" from athletes and coaches who claim to be "serving the Lord in the NFL". Some churches boast of how many have been "saved" as a result. But have they never considered that there may be a problem with the concept:"Let us do evil that good may come"?

Paul wrote:
The last time I checked, we were under Grace and not the Law. The Law is for unrepentant sinners who are still lost in their sin. Jesus told the religious leaders of the day that He was in fact the Lord of the Sabbath. We receive our rest in Him as we surrender and submit to His will. This gives us the liberty and freedom to work and do without toil and burn out. So what if these churches want to not have services on Sunday? What is one day to another? Just straining a gnat through a hypocritical sieve.
Where do you find His Will? Jesus said: "If ye love me keep my commandments." Paul said: "I delight in the law of God after the inward man." Your idea of "not under the law" is flawed. You need to quote ALL of Romans 6:14. It is talking there about how we are justified before God. In 2 COR.9 Paul said he was "under the law to Christ". It is not a way TO life, but it is a way OF life to the Christian. A lawless believer is a contradiction in terms.

Is it a co-incidence that all major sporting events usually have their "finals" on the Lord's Day? As the hymn says: "Is this vile world a friend to grace, to help me on to God?" The answer is clear. The world is not interested in the glory of God, or in anything that promotes His glory. All of these diversions on a Sunday (whether it be sporting events, or TV "specials", or entertainment shows) are just the attack of Satan on the Worship of God. As for Christians and their "convictions", they better make sure those convictions are Bible-based, otherwise they are just acting upon the principle which informs the behavior of worldlings: "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes".

Don't get me wrong, I liked Bush better than Obama, but if memory serves me correct, when the President was told about the 9/11 attacks, he continued on addressing a kindergarten class as if nothing had happened.
Untrue! The President was NOT speaking when he was informed of the tragedy, but another person was at the podium. He sat sombre-faced at the news, and then immediately (in a sensitive manner)addressed the audience, including young children, about the attack on America. Those are the facts.

I was one of those who watched with incredulity the President's comments on live television. At such a moment of National grief one might have expected to hear a sober, even sombre tone from the Commander-in-Chief. But, more than that, it would have been reasonable to expect that his immediate remarks might actually be focussed on the sad and tragic events at Fort Hood. Instead President Obama chose to indulge his audience with a light-hearted "shout-out" to a Native Indian Tribal leader. It was insensitive in the extreme. If President Bush had done something remotely similar at Ground Zero on 9/11 he would have been pilloried, even villified by the National Media. In marked contrast to his polished performances when speaking from a prepared script, Barak Obama has repeatedly shown himself to be both naive and incompetent when called upon to speak "off-the-cuff". On this occasion, however, his incompetence was over-shadowed by his crass insensitivity to the suffering and pain of the affected families, the Military community, and the American people as a whole. However, it ought to be no surprise to anyone coming as it does from a man who sat for 20 years in the congregation of the racist, Anti-American Jeremiah Wright, and who holds such extreme liberal views politically.

Stephen,
Once taxes have been lawfully levied it is the government's money.
Refund cheques are for the return of money the government has no lawful right to.
There is no meaningful analogy to be made between direct government funding of education and tax refund cheques.
Sorry to disagree Guinness, but my analogy does not quite break down as you assert. In the U.K. the taxation system allows for refunds of taxes on gifts to designated churches and/or schools. It is called "gift aid". Of course it is not technically a "refund check" since the individual giver does not receive it. However it is in plain terms a "refund" of tax. I think the law can properly reflect the desire of citizens to have a choice in education. Why should Christians pay taxes to fund State schools when they have opted to educate their own children privately? The government should allow citizens the option to use their tax dollars for that purpose. As you rightly point out, this has already been happening for a long time in some countries. You are also correct in saying the Bible does not forbid it. John Knox actually established in his day an educational system in Scotland which was, in fact, State-funded Christian education.

These schoold shouldn't be funded by the state, nor the state even think they can or should have an influence on hiring practices.
The "State" funds are the tax-payers own money. They certainly should be entitled to use their own taxes for Christian education if they so choose. Don't Americans who pay their taxes get REFUND checks? Why? Because they are entitled to a refund under the law. The funding of such schools in the Netherlands comes under this category. And furthermore, the "government" DOES have the God-given right to rule over its citizens, albeit in keeping with the law of God: Romans 13. If pedophiles were abusing children in a parochial school (did that ever happen??) the "State" (i.e. all of us)have a duty to intervene without being accused by "conservatives" of over-reaching.

“ A vital message ”
God bless you for standing for the truth of His Word. The textual issue is of no small importance in the matter of pure Bible translations. There is so much confusion and mis-information abroad, even in evangelical circles. The work of societies like the T.B.S. is vital!

There is no mention of Bible version (that I could see). Given the TBS involvement, it seems safe to assume that this is a KJV production.
If it is, my question would be: Is this the wisest investment of funds for a printed gospel for evangelistic purposes in 2008?
Faith cometh by hearing, but hearing cometh not readily by confusion.
This post assumes (wrongly) that the use of the KJV as an English Translation is not only ill-advised, but actually dangerous i.e. calculated to cause confusion. Nothing could be further from the truth. What produces confusion, and has produced little else,is the glut of modern translations, most of which are (to a greater or lesser extent) totally unreliable, whilst others (like the NKJV)encourage false variant readings in the footnotes, so that the very content of the Word of God is in doubt! I say, good work Sermonaudio and the TBS. May God bless the giving forth of the truth in the purest English translation available to us.

It is a bit of a moot point anyway, but having ministered in both countries, I am not so sure that the U.K. actually is "further along the wrong road"...at least if you are referring to the situation here in the Northeast. I would say that it is pretty much a "toss-up". Look at who this country just elected to the highest office!!

"Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one." Romanism is a system of spiritual fornication. Of course, idolatry and uncleanness always go together. Paedophilia is endemic within the Roman "priesthood". For centuries they have been covering it up, and even now it is only admitted by Rome because it is impossible to deny. Scandals involving priests as far apart as California and County Cork are costing the church billions of dollars in litigation costs. "Come out of her my people".
