JD says: "Folks, there is something wrong if you must redefine words or worse yet, replace words to teach your theology. Can't you see that?"
Words like "Last Trump?
Words like "day of the Lord?"
Words like the Prodigal Son (who you say is Jewish code/type for Jacob, and the son who stayed home is code for Esau)?
Like Rebecca, who you say is really the Christian church about to be raptured?
Like Paul, who you infer really means Antichrist?
Like Wisdom in Proverbs who is personified as a woman but you claim is really Almighty God?
Like countless other words you've redefined to suit yourself over the years that you've been putting up your incoherent mystical nonsense, spreading confusion and ignorance all over this bulletin board?
quote: "It's sad that the JW's and Mormons will carry around a whole bible while witnessing. Those who call themselves Christian seem to limit themselves to gimmicky literature."
The only thing gimmicky about Ray Comfort's tracts was making the cover look like money, so people would pick it up and look at it. So what? If you use a loud noise, a bull horn, whatever, you have to get people's attention before they will listen.
At least Ray Comfort cares enough to try to tell people, to try to get their attention. I know people who risk their lives to get Bible literature into China, and the people in China gobble it up eagerly.
Here in America, where people only care about money anyway, it's a good ploy to get people's attention. Chick Tracts are pretty good too, they do get read.
The only problem I have with the gospel tracts is that they are presenting the wrong message to Americans. Here, people are gospel-hardened, a bunch of people who think they are saved but aren't, as Paul Washer preaches here in SA.
Somebody needs to get out there with some tracts for Prodigal Sons, for those who are dried up like the Five Virgins, pass them out to Christians who are coming out after church service, plaster them on their cars.
"Her "gang of 5" is a puny group compared with her Gang of Self."
Mike, I have to agree with you. Five grown men, claiming to be Christians, and all making a fool of themselves, who cannot defend themselves against one person, and it's because you are really fighting against the Bible.
And sure, it's just one person.
It only takes one person, lighting a small candle, to put out the darkness.
