they are trying to get us to accept this as normal life to have everything in life surveilled and recorded. why anyone would want to create and live in a world like that is beyond me. meanwhile atrocities continue... the syrian rebels who are not even syrian. silence from the Christian community.... very troubling to say the least.
perhaps more children would be born if we treated them not as a disease that invaded, and where the ladies can give assistance to one another. doctors have written of tribes, before the western diet comes it, that children were readily born. sometimes we make things more difficult, thinking we are making things better!
CV, I agree with you, glad to see this discussion here with MH, and John UK.
Christ's election is for both Jew and Gentile.
Some would cut out half the gospel to try to prove otherwise.
Some would say they believe in free will for Gentile and election for Jew.
This distinction is not consistent with New Testament teaching that teaches these distinctions are erased in Christ.
Some want to reintroduce distinctions to the Kingdom of God, even cutting out great sections of the NT for the Gentile believer in order to keep their theories from being disproven. Once I see the scissors taken out as a tool for reading the New Covenant, I go grab the tape and put God's word back together.
John UK is right and too kind.... these scriptures are there for the encouragment of the believer. who would want to steal these words away from the believer, and I would ask, what will God say to all the groups that confess Christ but then diminish His means for reaching the world? reminds me of the paintings in some churches where Mary looms large and Jesus is a little baby, small and weak.... Christ's covenant is not weak and is our one hope.
"God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how me maketh intercession to God against Isreal, saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
"But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to (the image of) Baal.
"Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.....
"What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded."
John for JESUS wrote: 1) Matt 25:32 is about sheep out of every nation, but remember it is at a different time. In John 10 He was here to minister to the Jews only. It wasn't until His ascension that He commands the gospel to be preached into all the world.
yep yep yep. no AQ in Iq until after the west came in with her DU to bless their children.... and now AQ of Iq is coming into Sy with west support with all of its wonderful gifts....
against the Christians and stable society.
many will blame one man, while this wonderful thing has been going on for years.
suddenly people are paying attention because their blessed nobel peace prize winner is looking a lot like the hawk before him. they were always the same, and people too proud to see it.
dems/reps united in this movement by some higher power, whatever it is, while a few try to represent ind freedom, human rghts and the church (its people) to exist.
and what of the supposed watchmen on the wall of the evang church? where are our ethicists????? as an organized church our world has become very very small. shall we continue our discussion on what flavor girl scout cookies there are this year?
Jim, would you care to clarify the difference between the fake Jim's comment about how Caesar is god on earth versus your rendering to Caesar article? Did you feel that the article and comment are in conflict? I'm quite curious at this point.
Dolores, I'm a gal like you, and that's why I responded. I appreciate your desire for mercy and justice, both are needed in the body of Christ. And your desire for truth and righteousness. I will pray for you and your husband in these coming days! thank you for your kind words.
I've had many friends whose husbands were not believers. He needs your prayers, as I am sure you are already praying for him. But it is the Lord that does the opening of the eyes. Please cast away thoughts that do not come from Christ, such as that you are alone, because nothing can cast you from the love of Christ, if you truly are His. These days will call many to a greater faith, it is very needed, but God will provide that as well.
Dolores, maybe you are legit, I had my concerns.... yes, facebook is not private, it is a huge data base gathering point. and there are much better examples, so perhaps the Lord is opening your eyes to the persecution at hand.... yes, this is cause to weep. the open society is closing before our eyes. if there are questions that we have, it is time to start printing the information and getting it in hand, reading and understanding. I have long felt the internet was given by God as a tool for believers to gather information they need for the coming days. And also a time to prepare spiritually, or "count the cost" as they say. when people put footage out of Sy. and whatever else, we dismiss, ignore and always think we have tomorrow. reminds me of the verse about "redeeming the time". when we have an opportunity at hand, it is not guaranteed for tomorrow.
as for persecution, the NT teaches how to walk in those times, we follow in the footsteps of the apostles and Christ Himself. Our greatest fear should be in leaving the faith, there is usually a remnant that will remain in Christ. wow, this is something to pray about isn't it? easier to say than to live out! Good day!
yes, children are a blessing and a blessed hope for the future of society here on earth. they are to be something we celebrate. why celebrate death and a dying people? why celebrate destroying life? it is easy to destroy but it is God that gives new life, that is in the physical and the spiritual.
the abortionist I talked with basically supported eugenics (obviously), he saw no other way to solve the problems of the useless eaters having baby after baby. He knew GMs would make people sick and stuck on meds all the time. He knew of Agenda 21, and the taking of the land and moving the gm people to cities.
they know this. wish the Christian community would understand, its their children.
people who compare gm and non gm on lab animals find within 3 generations they are sterile. the effects continue on because of the genetic issues.
besides the swollen intestines at autopsy.
this is a very important topic!
the abortionist did not know that another road, though less travelled is Christ! and that even young people, in their sinful lifestyles can be redeemed and changed in heart and mind through the Holy Spirit unto Holy Righteous Living! In fact, he was surprised that many young women will enjoy the council of an older woman unto righteous living!
JY - I think you raise an interesting point. I have no doubt that individuals will learn to be more creative rather than being able to rely on a collectivist state to back them up.... but at the same time being filled with the Holy Spirit, trusting God to walk us through these times.... as Christ our Lord and Savior. Good day!
it is interesting to read interviews by Michael L Weinstein. His wikipedia page (as of today) has excerpts from his book. His sons were prostelytized while they were at the Academy, and the idea of hell was mentioned, and he felt this was antisemitic.
its the baker first, the rest are coming. they are attempting to put all things under their headship. Christ said that his followers would see tribulation and He prewarned them so that they would not lose heart.
Dolores, but that kind of talk does not in my mind represent the many people who are facing persecution right now and are operating in a Godly manner. I wouldn't associate the two together. that's been said over and over, and you cannot think of another example, therefore, I think this conversation is a waste of time, now back to the topic, I hope.
