H.L. Oliver: is that quote from the Free Presbyterian Magazine?
As a comment to this article, perhaps there is truth in it. We know persecutions are rampant in Pakistan and growing. But this Shoebat fellow, research it. I do not understand the spirit of these men which seems so opposite to the spirit of Christ. Also, it is no surprise coming out of WND. Their honesty in journalism is lacking many times.
Maybe he is right, the Lord knows. I want to be ready. Ready for the Lord's coming. Ready for persecutions should they come. Ready to live truly and holy before God in times of peace and times of trouble. O Lord, help me work while there is freedoms to do so. Give your people grace and help to stand in the evil day.
Praise the Lord. I think this research underscores the importance of the means by which God ordinarily works to bless and bring salvation to His elect. I would imagine that those who still yet left the faith of Christ likely remained upright citizens. But woe to those who are given so much light and still reject the Gospel.
In the article she is quoted as saying she is not a Christian. The article also states she left her "evangelical" faith. Her lifestyle is evidence that she is not a true Christian, and so from her own confession she now denies Christ.
It is true God's elect are driven from these places. They are the Lord's and will not follow the voice of another. While these things are discouraging to see, I am not surprised by the broad way that leads to destruction. Let's examine who we are and be careful that we have taken the narrow and difficult way. The Lord's Church which He purchased with His own blood will be victorious. Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord he and his family had the courage to come forward and confess their fault. I can only assume they have also repented before the Lord and sought forgiveness. May the Lord bless them and forgive all their sins and use their confession to Hos glory and honor.
No amount of money will cause the truth of God to fail nor for His elect to fall away. Homosexuality is not a gift from God, it is a judgement. Not 8.5 million nor 8 trillion dollars can nullify the Word of God or stamp it out.
