Sickening.
Your phone is possessed because of some evil coding. You need to immediately dunk it in a mixture of Vegemite and water for over an hour. That should eliminate any problems you will see on your phone.

...UPS sometimes add a negative modifier when I shouldn't too.
Sorry Jim, I have no clue what you are trying to say, as I said, I am not trying to garner a discussion on eschatology.

My objective was not to promote premillianilism or speak against any other eschatological viewpoints. I believe it is an area where even though Christians disagree they can still enjoy fellowship around the things of God. The discussion goes far deeper than just the one branch of systematic theology.

I was showing the truth of what I said at the end of my 9/20/17 9:50 PM post and the beginning of my 9/20/17 1:50 PM post.

The website from which penned got the inaccurate headline shares her eschatological viewpoint. I surmise that she more than likely didn't listen to the sermon excerpt. Applying the line of thinking they used on John MacArthur would be the same as if they put the following headline on Acts 16

***Gospel writer says you can be saved just by being in a place where an earthquake occurs!!***

Again, this is why one should not base your understanding of another's viewpoint based upon the interpretation of it by those who despise its teaching. They simply misrepresent it.

First of all, I have no desire to open a discussion here on eschatology. It is just an exercise in futility.

Second, I am not interested in defending or denouncing John MacArthur his ministry or his message. Just want record to be straight.

The portion of the sermon that was included starts with JM stating that salvation is wrought in hearts by God through His grace and the convicting work of the Spirit (John 16:8-11), do not we believe that?

What we DID NOT hear him say

--That Christians would not go through tribulation. (John 16:33)

--That the day of salvation is not today or you can put it off fleeing to Christ for salvation. (II Cor. 6:2)

--That there is hope for those who IN THIS LIFE reject Christ apart from repentance and faith during their days here on earth.

--That it doesn't matter how we live. (I John 3:2,3 Titus 2:11-14)

--That the salvation occurred just because they saw Jesus in flesh, he said that was the what God used to bring conviction to their heart.

--That the Lord's return is some secret thing which, by the way, is NOT a premillianist view.

That is why I said you should not base your understanding of other's viewpoint based upon the interpretation of it by those who despise its teaching. They simply misrepresent it.

I do not hold to rapture teaching anyway.
One would understand if you said you thought the timing would be different. You think Paul was lying when he wrote to the Thessalonians?

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 
  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 
Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 

that is what is referred to as the catching away or rapture of the church. You don't think God will do this?

I can take or leave it. I only go to casino for the Buffet.
John, think this out. Here is a person who for what appears to be purely alturistic reasons picks you up, takes you to the Casino and pays for your meal, which apparently is good but probably not that inexpensive.

You then stated it would be a stupid to put one's money in a slot machine. So is this how you pay back your friend's kindness to you by wasting his money on what you state is a stupid investment?

It is nice to have such a caring and giving friend.

so, what do you think of the words of the Lord

It is more blessed to give than to receive

Walter/1517

An appropriate response would have been along these lines

Yes, praise alone be to God, some of those with whom I had the privilege of sharing the gospel were gloriously converted by our merciful Lord. I was just an instrument used to plant or water the seed of the Word, God gave the increase for His glory. Thanks for asking, isn't our God great?!?

Instead you treated the question with contempt. You could have acknowledged the kind dialogue into which your brother was trying to engage you. There is rejoicing in heaven over a sinner that repents, you don't think Dr. Tim and others here should rejoice in the goodness of God in the salvation of sinners? Are you not inaccurately assuming that Dr. Tim thinks you give yourself credit (as a belt notch) for the salvation of souls? He has never indicated any of that in his posts. The words he used in his question are found in Scripture.

Tell me which post anybody has said that salvation of any lost sinner, including Hillary, is not a work of God. They don't exist, your indignation is misplaced, if anything you are preaching to the choir with less than a handful of exceptions.

God does the work...
Men "win" professors.
Again you do err not knowing the Scriptures. God is a God of means, He using the foolishness of preaching to SAVE them that believe.

Read the words of Holy Writ from the Apostle Paul from I Corinthians 9

What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.  For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;   To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.  To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

What was he wishing to gain? Their conversion!

That does not negate his previously saying that some plant, others water but only God gives the increase. This does not detract from the fact that salvation is of the Lord. Your "humility" in this matter comes across as feigned.

Unprofitable,
The purpose of my post was to highlight how certain personal critiques are acceptable ( piling on Mrs. Clinton) but criticizing certain posters will have my posts removed.
You need to study the Scriptures as there are many instances of the calling out of the unregenerate by name and in general for their ungodly actions.

As I look at the lists of your post that was complied by dear sister ladybug, I see one coming into this forum somewhat like a bull in a china cabinet. You comment on a history between posters of which you know nothing as one coming in to clean house and set the record straight. As you have found out, if something inappropriate is posted the moderators here will address it. If you don't like what is said by some, just don't read it.

To be honest, just as your above post, you have shown an inadequate understanding more than once of the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit is said to convict men of sin, righteousness, and judgment and that would include all who are not redeemed, stating Hillary may be saved does not mean her sins are overlooked,excused or not denounced.

Dr. Tim, really??? having an inappropriate remark removed by the moderators here at SA is persecution?

Thanks to all the brethren who prayed for me. We got home around 11:30 today and all is normal. We simply have to go food shopping today.
I certainly have a better understanding and compassion for my brothers/sisters who experience these things on a constant basis without some type of natural disaster.
But, I praise the Lord for the provisions He gave us and is giving us. All truly is normal now.
Thanks to all of you.
Praise the Lord!!

Buckeyes,
You're incorrect. Before the foundations of the world did God predestined His elect. ***Therefore, scripturally literate Christians know when they were saved. ***God isn't subject to His own creation (time) .
Scripturally literate Christians know the following

That according to Ephesians 2 we were dead in trespasses and sins who followed the prince of the power of the air, by nature children of wrath until we were saved by the grace of God. We were without hope and without God in this world, but thank God we who WERE afar off have been made nigh by the blood of Christ when He saved us from wrath to come.

Hallelujah!

The Lord said He came not to call the righteous but sinners unto repentance (Luke 5:32)

Paul reminded us that Christ came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15)

We are told that we who were under the condemnation and wrath of God (John 3:18,36) have been translated out of darkness into the kingdom of His dear Son. (Col. 1:13)

Praise be to God!!

Paul told the Corinthians when speaking of those who shall not inherit the kingdom of God that such WERE some of you, but now (after salvation) you are washed, sanctified and justified by the precious blood of Christ.(I Cor. 6)

. Really do not read much of constitutional rights being defended in the scripture.
Being a Christian doesn't make one a doormat for people to run over.
Paul stopped a scourging by claiming his rights as a Roman citizen. The Lord Jesus condemned those who smote him contrary to the law. The Jews in Ezra's time gave as evidence for their work being legitimate the decree of the government of Persia via Cyrus, which Darius acknowledged. The Jews in Esther used a decree from the king to justify their defense from those who would destroy them and the entire event was turned around.

What we deserve is what Dave pointed out, but God in His grace has given us civil freedoms to enjoy that some believers will never have in their countries. Those freedoms, in the case of the United States, were acknowledge not to be a gift from the government but an endowment by God.

Seeing that most historians put the writing of the last book of the Bible just shy of the end of the first century and the writing of our Constitution occurred nearly 1700 years later, one would little expect that the subject of "Constitutional rights" would be addressed in Scripture.

I have been going through a severe trial that involves a loved one who died believing that salvation was in the religion of Rome.
So I will sign off for awhile.
God's Richest Blessings to all.
So sorry to hear that sister MS, definitely praying for God's grace during these trying times in your life.

Hoping that John Yurich is paying attention to this sad and grievous tragedy. May he see the grief he causes when he defends this vile false religion used by the great deceiver to blind the eyes of an eternal soul. May it be a remind to him that the true Christian governed by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God,says, Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate (not defend or act like it is a matter of no importance) every false way. (Psalm 119:104) Remember John, a corrupt tree cannot bring forth good fruit, flee to Christ, flee the wrath to come.

May we hold this dear sister before our gracious heavenly Father who knows what needs she has and for the comfort of the Holy Spirit as One called along side of her during this time of grief and pain to sustain her plus the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ who is touched with the feeling of her infirmities to succor her in this severe trial in her life.

Dear brother Christopher, we understand your posts, you are saying the RCC acknowledges the historical Mary as found in Scripture. Yet they are many false religions such as Islam, Mormonism, JW's, Judaism, etc. that will acknowledge the historical narrative of our Lord as to the fact that He walked this earth, but no one would inappropriately say that it therefore means they believed in the Christ of Scripture and history because of it.

Elijah's words speak boldly to John, How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him

John says he sees the false ways of the RCC yet he adamantly defends it. He says he doesn't believe in the RCC way of salvation but he faithfully practices it. By his own admission he goes to a "church" surrounded by lost and perishing souls but cares more for the praise of men thinking him to be a good Catholic than walking in the fear of God.

Even others who use the misguided language of they "accepted Christ", when they give their testimony they will emphasize God and what He in His grace and mercy has done to bring about their salvation to an undeserving sinner. John, on the other hand, in his testimony of "conversion", it is all about him and what he did.

May God grant him repentance unto salvation.

Seriously John, you are a college graduate.

If you believe what the Bible states about Mary then you cannot put any credence into what the Catholics believe. If you believe what the Catholics teach then you are saying that the Scriptural account is insufficient and inaccurate. You either believe one or the other. Believing the false teachings of the RCC is to disbelieve the clear teaching of Scripture.

All have sinned and are born with a sin nature
Mary had multiple children after the virgin birth
There is one mediator, the Lord Jesus
True prayer is address to God alone

If what the RCC teaches is true then what the Bible says is wrong, if the Word of God is true, then what the RCC says is wrong.

It is a blatantly erroneous statement to say the RCC believe what the Bible says about Mary when they clearly do not, and you of all people should know that.

Your defense of Catholicism is shameful for one that claims to be a child of the Lord Jesus who is the way the truth and the life.

News flash we have found the real identity of John Yurich. Listen in on the following conversation.

Dan Q: I now know the identity of John/George Yurich, his real name is Clark Kent aka Superman, he is faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and more powerful than a locomotive!

Lloyd B: I know John Yurich. He has knee problems there is no way he could be or do what you say. You believe in a John Yurich that you have created that John Yurich is not real, he doesn't exist.

Dan Q: Oh, I know the real John Yurich exist, we just attest to the supernatural powers we state that he possesses.

Lloyd B: So, you are saying that believing in the John Yurich that isn't real and doesn't exist is the same as believing in the one who is real?

Dan Q: Yes, only the insane would say otherwise and by the way, I am not a robot!

Lloyd B:

quoted from the article in my post, he is definitely writing about woman preachers in the pulpit. He certainly would have no knowledge of sisters sharing their thoughts on an internet site news forum.

What the Bible does not say, is let woman keep silent and then end the sentence. This forum is not a church. Wanting to silence opposing viewpoints is a much seen liberal tactic. Ladybug properly predicted your response.

Jim from Link on

From the article to which you linked

"the preaching by women was universally condemned among all conservative denominations of Christians. Now the idea is being presented to the churches, and female preachers are knocking at our doors."

From John MacArthur

"While the ministry of women is essential to the church’s proper working and health, only men are given the responsibility to serve as pastors and elders.

The clearest biblical teaching on this issue is found in 1 Timothy 2:12: “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.” This command comes in a section of 1 Timothy which teaches about the functioning of a local church. ...the roles of pastors and elders are limited to men in the church."

Even those who you purport to support your viewpoint acknowledge that the Scripture speak about woman and their role in the local church. Specifically the roles of teaching and preaching in a local body of believers.

In this forum we have comments from Presbyterians, Catholics Episcopalians, Baptists, and undoubtedly more, what is the name of the church here?

Ladybug, who is a source of blessing to many of us, comments are most welcome here. This is news forum comment section not a church.

thankful for this. Christians in US given a partial reprieve, a year of disclosure. are we seeing how silent we went without a peep allowed the SPLC to call CHRistian groups [email protected] groups? the silence of the pulpit more concerning than the persecution itself.
Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

John
15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

1John 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

I am a tad confused here. What is it that you think on which the pulpits are silent? Seems like we are just seeing the veracity of the Scriptures fulfilled.

Two questions

What is that you would that preachers sound forth from their pulpits that you think they were derelict in their duty to proclaim?

How are you aware of such universal silence?
