Large big box retailers often assign a value per customer, so a million pledged against Target is big number multiplied with that value. Target has weathered a similar storm before with their support of abortion. I say similar, because it's a little different here. Even secular pro abortion women don't want perverts in their bathroom. Target has been on my no shop list for 30 years, so I am not a big deal, but they seemed to have upset a whole new group of people

Gal, col, Romans, these epistles written by Paul, to already saved are stark warnings not to go back to the ways of the law, brother I beg you understand, This term to return to Jewish roots, dangerous business. Not according to me bro, according to Paul the apostle. Lord bless. Dillon did you choose God or did he chose you my brother? Please reply in love not hate, I'm not trying to bring about an argument. Just a question?
Dave Let's see how well you can can defend Sunday as the LORDs Day and present a fine argument to poor beguiled Dylan. Afterwards look up the Daily Mirror article on Wasteland Weekend. It's a celebration of Mad Max movies in a Nevada Desert.
Marcus G wrote: Judaizing most certainly is forbidden in the NT. However, it's well worth taking note of what a Judaizer actually is. Otherwise, what's the point of the warning!? A Judaizer was someone who wanted gentiles to become a Jew and do certain things in order for them to be saved. They also held to the teaching/tradition of their "fathers" - which is now the Talmud. Returning to our Father's instructions is not the same thing. Scripture never stated that it is.
To clarify your salient point, the Talmud is the continuation of a false religion that beguiled so many. Christianity is the true Faith of Abraham Issac and Jacob

(Hebrews 4:12) now I listen to Ken Ham, I have some DVD'S and video cassettes by him (some people don't know what video cassettes are) he has a good ministry, I obviously don't agree with everything he does, now I realize he can't undo all that he has done, the money has been spent, it sounds like it will be a unique teaching tool, yet I believe that the money could have been put to better use, I hear that ICR is building a museum that is going to cost a, what is a better investment, Museums or churches?
According to the article, it's a rebate from the State. The rebate will be based on the sales tax revenue generated. Imo- the State of KY is paying, the money isn't coming out of a Church mission budget
ladybug wrote: "The Grahams however, for all their faults, have taken the simple gospel message all around the world, in obedience to the Great Commission" -- this comes from one who claims to adhere to the doctrines of grace. The Grahams preach a works-based salvation, as has been proved repeatedly on these threads. They accept funding from the Roman Catholic church and send those who 'come forward' during one of their crusades back to the false religions they come from, such as the RCC. Kevin, you may possess the ability to think for yourself, but do you possess the gift of discernment from God? Did Christ embrace false teachers of His day? Hardly. Steve R is a Roman Catholic who disguises himself as 'Christian'. He is divisive and a minion of Satan and should be shunned. It is astounding that so many embrace this devilish ministry. As J.C. Ryle stated, mixing a little poison with truth is quite deadly.
Tsk tsk tsk ladybug, if you are going to pretend to be a Christian, you shouldn't spread rumors and lies. Everyone here knows I'm a Christian in the Reformed Tradition in full agreement with the Canons of Dordt and reasonable agreement with the OPCs understanding of the Westminster Confession
kevin wrote: Thankfully, I too possess the ability to think for myself like others here who choose to support and not bash Franklin. In your desire to expose the fallacies you perceive that exist with various Christian leaders, you create your own brand of religion. To some degree, you are instruments of the dark side and not followers of God.

But if your heart's hardened by God, ? Well you can defend this man , but you will finish with egg on your face, You have been warned .
What are you talking about? Do you feel OK? You are posting every few minutes, and every other post doesn't make any sense. It's like you are trapped in a bad Mad Max movie
Connor wrote: When God gave the ten commandment, you can be assured it was the KJV Bible. :-) If Jim uses the ESV let him do so, it is not the book of shadows, if we are concerned about Jim pray for him, we should shoot our fellow soldiers, we are in a spiritual war, attack the enemy not your brother. Praying for you Jim.
I'm beginning to like Connor, except for his location in Sodom. He is our Lot
Instead of spending your time praying for ISIL, Al Queda and whatever your pet project of the week is, why not pray for the Methodists? It seems like you want to blow them off , let's hope I am misunderstanding the tone of the thread
Even secular women don't want to see some grimy 200 lb oaf with a wig, black Jessica Simpson mini dress in 4 in heels struggling to relieve himself in the ladies room. I'm pretty sure this is a case for the conservative right to remain civil and not use $&@ type words as we will win this easily

While you are at it, ask them to reinstate the sermons of the fine UK pastors who have ended their membership with SA for financial reasons. Their sermons have been deleted. Libraries shouldn't burn the books of authors they can no longer extort. They provided excellent sermons while members, and Christendom needs their message.
They were most theologically sound ones here, probably why they were deleted
