John for JESUS wrote: Lurker... I always thought we would live in the New Jerusalem. SteveR... The children of flesh are those who descended from Ishmael. Ishmael was a result of Abraham trying to fulfill God's promises by his own works. The children of promise are descendents of Isaac, who was a result of God miraculously allowing Rebecca to have a child at 90 years old, fulfilling His promise to Abraham. The descendents of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) will still inherit the promises of God.
Romans 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
Turnbul wrote: Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Romans 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

I feel this is on the coattails of so many churches offering Open Communion. Jimmy heard that at the table ALL are accepted and none would be turned away so often, he really thinks everyone is despite their lifestyle. Like Judah and Israel, he has fallen in love with his own false righteousness
Ezekiel 16:15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.
Ezekiel 16:16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
Ezekiel 16:17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, .. Ezekiel 16:20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
Martin wrote: "This is a healthy response to evil and commendable." I couldn't you agree with you more. The 'escapist, bury your head in the sand' mentality of some Christians toward growing tyranny is incomprehensible to me. The Lord calls us to stand for His truth as salt and light in every sphere of human existence-- and in the sphere of government, the truth is that no one has the right to muzzle citizens when it comes to proclaiming the gospel freely or enchaining citizens when it comes to living in accordance with Christian values in their daily life and work. While political liberty is ours, we must use it to fight against those who hate liberty and would take it away. We have a dual calling--to build the walls of Zion with a trowel in the one hand, and defend the work of wall-building with a sword in the other. That is, we are to proclaim the gospel, on the one hand, but we do not eschew involvement in the political process, on the other.
Is that what Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem seduced you into believing? Leaving your post to instead protest with them against the King that granted Nehemiah the chance to build the walls of Zion?

The only doctrine more recent is the invention of the sinner's prayer for salvation by Billy Sunday in 1930, which was made popular by Billy Graham. 2. The fact that John Nelson Darby invented the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine around 1830 AD is unquestionably true. All attempts to find evidence of this wild doctrine before 1830 have failed, with a single exception: Morgan Edwards wrote a short essay as a college paper for Bristol Baptist College in Bristol England in 1744 where he confused the second coming with the first resurrection of Revelation 20 and described a "pre-tribulation" rapture.

So, it does a little more than provide work for someone, and one does have to balance the interest of various groups. John of UK, the church group gave some interesting answers to why their freedom of speech was given a secondary concern to other interests, and why it shouldn't. It should be interesting if everyone's signs have to shrink.
Speaking of signs being eyesores, is anyone else troubled the SA homepage here shows the 'Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas' sign? I feel the Gospel of John project should choose another banner
I skimmed the posts a few hours ago, but didnt read this one by 'Thy Word is Truth | UK' as it was lengthy. However, the author seemed to be only discussing how same sex unions are an abomination against nature, so why was it deleted?

Who could forget all those wonderful prophetic sermons that Charles Spurgeon preached concerning future Presidents of the USA?

We are told oil is the ISIL source of income that is financing the growing army of jihadis. Stop their oil, stop their income needed to continue their tyranny.
btw-If we were to engage in a long term tactical war say with China, they would go after our industry. Ford and GM plants, as you asked, would be logical targets as those factories would be converted to making military equipment. In WW2 Allies went after Axis sources of oil and basic industries, notably one item in particular; ball bearings. While Nazi Germany was able to develop synthetics to make up for the loss of oil, they never were able to fully recover from their shortage of ball bearings and other basic items needed to manufacture war equipment.

""allegedly occurred during the Protestant Reformation when the Scriptures were being translated from Latin to English by many of the reformers. ...""
huh? Who is this fool trying to beguile?
The Reformed tradition confirmed vernacular versions translated from the original languages as authoritative. While Reformers respected the Latin Vulgate, they rejected the RCCs ruling that the Vulgate would have 'sacred' authority over the original languages.
2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
John UK wrote: I do hope J4 is learning from this exchange. We have to make allowances for those like John who are biblically ignorant. But it behoves him to begin reading the Bible a bit more seriously.
J4J is Biblically Ignorant? Really?
Unless you are suggesting killing husbands so their wives can remarry without sin, you deserve to offer J4J a more Biblically sound response to his inquiry.
While I do have an answer, Im running out the door and would rather see how the unholy trinity and its followers reply

Ive spoken to legitimate missionairies around the world, and one of their great obstacles is overcoming political concern over their evangelism. All too often, some so called missionaries arent missionaries of the true Gospel at all. Rather they promote a 'Liberation Theology' against the ruling class, at which time they are often exiled. However, some real missionaries get caught up in these purges too

You are confusing Hamas with ISIL. Hamas are the Iranian backed muslims in the Gaza strip that hide in residential areas as they exiled from humanity except for what the UN builds for them so they have no military bases.
ISIL on the other hand is a well funded military operation with the latest US military equipment and training attracting jihadists from around the world to rape, pillage and steal throughout the Levant with a main goal to destroy the pro Christian Assad Govt.
Picture all the hate in your soul for the RCC and you had a chance to join a holy army to destroy the Vatican. Picture that your dismal life would become worth living if you and your holy brethren win. Picture the depression & despair and feeling of worthlessness vanish as you huddle with fellow fighters...and you might understand what drives them
