"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?" (Ps. 2:1).
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2Tim. 4:3, 4).
Enter the Da Vinci code, which is fiction on steroids (http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/thedavincicode.html), and the gnostic Christ which manifest fantasy an increasingly sensual west seeks to supplant the Biblical Jesus with in order to escape conviction of sin, sadly spurning the grace of God to their own eternal horror!
I doubt such "evangelicals" actually do much real public sharing of the faith. Resortion to violence to persuction is just what the leftist media would love to see, but this is not the weapons of our warfare, and it is not how the primitive church in the Bible responded to persecution and grew despite far worse treatment than the likes of W. Europe.
"By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left," "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh" (Cor. 6:6: 10:3). Praise the Lord.
Great Sermon! Holding Rome as a true church and an effectual ally in the war on error (moral nd otherwise)is an error itself. Rome does not preach the apostolic gospel of grace, but her official teachings assert works of faith help merit eternal life (contra Rm. 4). What she most effectual fosters is faith and dependence in herself and ones own merits for salvation.
As a force for morality, both personal testimony and every formal study i have read shows liberalism with it's attendant immoral positions thrives in ares where Romanism predominates (see Revealing Statistics at peacebyjesus.com). I live in one. Such is the case with a "form of religion" that denies the power thereof.
Considering the past record of so-called "missing links" representing true macro-evolution (Archaeopteryx, Australopithecus, Haeckel's embryos, Nebraska man, Piltdown man, Neanderthal man, etc.) makes this latest claim sound rather "fishy" also. Whether it admits it or not, evolutionary theory is driven by the quest to eliminate God, at least the Savior and Judge of all mankind the Bible reveals. Meanwhile we are expected to assent to the belief that out of nothing came everything, but don't really ask for the kind of abundant fossil (etc.) evidence that such a theory requires, nor ask where even the fossils came from.
One wonders if this cleric would agree if soldiers shot muslims simply because they looked dangerous. But while there is no excuse for any man raping women in any case - and such has much to do with subjection by violence - there also is no excuse for women dressing scantily in public. While it gains attention, the kind of bait you use much determines the kind of fish you will catch. A women's full beauty is not for the public to behold, but is only for the man who has earned that right by the life long commitment of marriage.
This FOOL will answer for his arrogance. Seeking 1st the kingdom of God and His righteouesness (Mt. 16:31) entails much, and excludes both indolence or selfishness, an IS hard work! And which God does indeed reward in ways this lost sols will never know!
