Shane, I agree....most seem to prefer it that way.

As for the video, you are welcome and blessings to you as well.

Praise the Lord He protects us from the dangers of this world, including the 'church'. The SBC doesn't deal with it's own at all, including the ecumenical Rick Warren and Albert Mohler, who sides with the Mormons on traditional marriage. The Bible doesn't call for us to pick any one particular sin and go up against it with a dead religion. The whole counsel must be preached, and dead religions must be shunned. Mohler stated he might not be in heaven with Mormons, but he may very well go to jail with them...what would be the point in that?

Shane, your experience is a familiar one. No one cares to discuss the trials they're enduring, or the refining God is putting them through. I look back now and think it's because no one was going through such trial and refinement. They did not want to discuss the bible, but they were quick to speak of their family matters or about the latest town gossip.
I remember when God saved me, and I stepped into a SBC church for the first time...it wasn't long the Pastor telephoned me and inquired as to whether I'd repented of my immoral behavior. Little did I know, the deacon's daughter, who was a member of this SBC church, had left her husband for another man...but that was okay. I didn't stay at that church long; the altar calls and 'decisions' for Christ were more than I could handle - not to mention the hypocrisy.

Dorcas - Indeed He did.

I really don't think it's important to hear how well someone's child is doing in school when that child is lost in sin and hell bound. The parents take pride in earthly accomplishments and seem to have no concern on the eternal state of their child. At least that's been what I've seen in the churches I've attended. I don't think it's improper, I think it's devastating. We've lost the importance of what really matters. The disciples left all they had, including their livelihood, to follow Christ. Yet, many today think livelihood is top priority. I suppose that could lead to one privately praying for those who cannot see the importance of the eternal over the temporal.

In Tears, you state "You have lifted up this downcasted soul this day." May our Lord be praised, for ALL glory goes to Him and Him alone.

If I may, here's another 'off topic' link I'd like to share- a sermon worth reading, 'Where Judgment Must Begin' - http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index...
It's from the Pastor of the video I linked to in a previous comment.

Michael,
I believe this is an area that none of us has arrived in as of yet. May it please the Lord to increase his refining fire in each of us.

Dorcas, Yes! Come Lord, come.

Brothers and Sisters,

It is an all too common problem, there's no fellowship within many church walls. Most fellowship is nothing more than discussing how well one's job is going, or how good one's child is doing in school. I've not found anyone within the churches I've attended who truly want to talk about our Lord, about the trials, refining and growth we go through. Or about the hardships we face; so we feel secluded, alone, rejected. Our Lord knows our heartache, His love is eternal and He is faithful. We know it will get worse for His true sheep; as the churches continue to do things 'man's way', we will be excluded. Take comfort in knowing our Shepherd is soon to come, and His love for us never fails.

in tears,

How tragic! you are not alone, this is an ever-growing problem. The church I attend is so cold, so lifeless. Because of this, I find myself not going as often as I'd like. The sermons are dull, rambling and hard to follow. As for the congregation, each are caught up in their careers, their children, their pursuit of comfort in this life....

Yes, I will pray for you

Praise the Lord for all the wonderful testimonies...all for His glory!

I grew up with a Lutheran background, was baptized {sprinkled the Romish way} and confirmed in the eighth grade. I occasionally begrudingly attended church with my grandma, and went on to live the most shameful and immoral life. I was brought to my knees by my sovereign God in 2003, He drew me to Himself through the devastating news of a terminal illness to my dear mom. My pride was shattered, my ego deflated, my eyes opened. The God of the bible used drastic measures to deal with a sinner who'd tarried long in sin, I was in my mid 40's at the time. This woman cried out, and the God of heaven heard me from His throne...He saved me from my sins, from His wrath, from eternal damnation. Could I ever have turned back at that point? Not a chance...never. The God I'd ran from my whole life took hold of me, and hasn't let go since. He will carry me on into the way everlasting

Michael,

I think it's a lack of clear communication that's causing problems here. You simply refuse to clearly state your position on the matter, for example - instead of answering Lurker's question, you pose a question of your own. The question isn't 'was Paul a robot', the question is 'did Paul have a choice to accept or reject Christ's call on that Damascus road?' Once he was knocked to the ground, could he have simply got back up, and continued on his way - ignoring the voice from heaven?

"After cleansing comes benediction, and truly this is a very rich one. It comprehends both election, effectual calling, access, acceptance, and sonship. First, we are chosen of God, according to the good pleasure of his will, and this alone is blessedness. Then, since we cannot and will not come to God of ourselves, he works graciously in us, and attracts us powerfully; he subdues our unwillingness, and removes our inability by the almighty workings of his transforming grace. This also is no slight blessedness. Furthermore, we, by his divine drawings, are made nigh by the blood of his Son, and brought near by his Spirit, into intimate fellowship; so that we have access with boldness, and are no longer as those who are afar off by wicked works: here also is unrivalled blessedness. To crown all, we do not come nigh in peril of dire destruction, as Nadab and Abihu did, but we approach as chosen and accepted ones, to become dwellers in the divine household: this is heaped-up blessedness, vast beyond conception." Spurgeon on Psalm 65:4

Amen Dorcas...well said

Michael,
Man's inability to choose Christ apart from Divine intervention looks nothing like your example. We do not react negatively, as your story states, and want to call 911. God must draw, which in the Greek means 'to drag'{John 6:44}. It is the fallen nature of man, his inability to come because as Christ stated 'you will not come to me that you may have life'{John 5:40} - this is why God must draw.
Why must that be so Michael? Because, as has already been stated, 'The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?'
Once He draws, we do respond, and not begrudgingly. We flee to Christ because our understanding has been opened, the new birth has revealed our wickedness and need of a Savior. All mankind is completely dead in sin, in bondage to it and loving darkness more than light. Look deeper into Jeremiah 17:9, Jeremiah 16:12, Genesis 6:5 and 8:21, Job 15:16, Psalm 51:5, Psalm 53:1-3, Ecc. 9:3. The depraved nature of all of mankind is found throughout the Bible; man will never come to Christ because of his natural love of sin. Is that deliberate inability or total inability? I would say both terms are correct. Man deliberately sins and is totally unable to respond when left to his own. Can a sinner resist God when He draws?

From that same commentary by Pink, he quotes this..
Bishop Berkeley wrote, “I cannot pray, but I sin; I cannot preach, but I sin; I cannot administer, nor receive the holy sacrament, but I sin. My very repentance needs to be repented of: and the tears I shed need washing in the blood of Christ.” (1670 A.D.)

"My very repentance needs to be repented of"...how many of us can be in agreement with such a profound statement?! Personally speaking, this is a great need of mine as well.

Frank, you said " I truly believe that even genuine Christians don’t fully understand the holiness of our triune God; which means we will never understand our total depravity and how it compares to God’s holiness." Amen...that brings to mind Isaiah 6 and his glimpse of God's holiness and majesty. He falls apart; can any of us imagine seeing what Isaiah saw and reacting in the way Isaiah did? The closer we get to God, the more we will see our own vileness; the result is a deep gratitude for what Christ has done.
As for Paul and Romans 7, I agree, this was the Apostle speaking of his battle in his 'saved' state. I think Pink describes this quite well http://www.pbministries.org/books/pink/Miscellaneo..

Michael, where has anyone NOT let scripture interpret scripture? Where has anyone used Calvin commentary to state their claim? Scripture has been given to show the inability of man to rightly choose. Jeremiah 17:9 is another verse that proves such; note from the verse that 'desperately wicked' means 'incurable, sick'. How can such a heart rightly choose Michael?

Michael,

If man has the ability to choose right from wrong, what causes man to always choose wrong? Why does the natural man continually chase after all his sinful, lustful heart desires? Granted, the natural man does sometimes do what is right, but all our righteousness is like filthy rags, so the natural man simply cannot please God, even if he were to choose to do so. Take note of Deut. 31:16, where the Israelites soon chose to ignore Deut. 30:19. The natural man is bent on continually going astray, for the love of sin and its bondage is too strong for the natural man to overcome.

Does God really think man can choose? Rather, isn't it God commands man to choose, even though He knows the heart of man. He also commands man to repent and believe, neither of which man can do apart from the work of the Spirit and grace. None of this takes away from accountability or responsibility; it does show man's greatest need...a Saviour. It also points to the incredible mercy and grace God displays.

To all who may be tempted to engage divisive men, may we heed the words found in holy writ...
As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. Titus 3:10-11
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. Romans 16:17
I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves! Galatians 5:12
If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed. 2 Thessalonian 3:14
having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:5

John UK,

I remember the my former church, the pastor's wife would speak of 'binding Satan'. I always found that a bit troubling; you state " If you wish it to flee from you, then rebuke it sharply in the name of Jesus Christ, Son of God, and command it to depart the place." This was similar to her beliefs.

The Lord Jesus gives us the meaning concerning the phrase 'resist the Devil', found in Matthew 4:3-11. He uses the word of God; perhaps this is what you meant in stating 'rebuke it sharply in the name of Jesus'. I do hope you don't mean something like, 'in the name of Jesus, be gone!' Let's recall how Michael, the archangel, dealt with Satan, "The Lord rebuke thee" Jude 1:9
We dare not think we can command Satan and his demons to depart from us, we must do as Michael did. We must leave such a powerful work in the all-sufficient hands of the Almighty One.

MikeNY,

Stating good riddance to the pagan holiday of Christ-mass does NOT equate siding with the enemy. This was the intent of the 'good riddance' - farewell to a pagan celebration - and NOT a back-slapping support of what this school district does.
I don't think it's 'evil' for a school to cease from calling 'religious holidays' by other names; take note, none of the religious holidays listed can be supported by Scripture. They are in and of themselves evil. Also note that this all stems from the Muslim community demanding equal billing to their religious holy day; we have pagan celebrations being re-named...and that's a bad thing?

can you show, from Scripture, where we are commanded to celebrate Christmas or Easter? Please, don't cite the KJV in Acts 12:4, for 'pascha' and today's 'easter' are not one in the same. If Scripture doesn't command it, how is it evil to be in favor of changing the names of these pagan rituals, regardless of who makes that decision?
