"""With rapid fire changes within a culture saturated by political correctness and relativism, we are inclined to ask if there is any hope for America"""
There is always hope. But today many Christians are taking Jesus advice and looking closely at the "signs of the times" He was rebuking the Pharisees at the time but today we have a very different scenario as Christians in front of us. The secular and unsaved nation surrounding us whether in America or any other western country are rejecting Christian moral standards and the Bible doctrines and teaching. The church itself is growing steadily smaller and less biblical in doctrines. We realistically must deal with these "signs" of our times and ask relevant questions about our life and where the world is going.
Is this the end? Well no certainly not yet, however it is the end of a certain societal mind set previously held in the western nations. Christian and Bible influences were held in the nations in places which were not strictly ecclesiastical. Places where politicians met for example held a prayer at the beginning of their proceedings. They do not acknowledge the Lord and the Bible quite so eagerly today - in fact we observe a rejection of all things Christian to embrace so called multi-faith???
Tony sounds like he has read too much 'Eric Phelps' and spends 24/7 on conspiracy websites.
The emphasis was on speak not evil one of another...which of course would speak to the heart of all 'brethren' and was meant to show that Tony, if he claims to be a brother, then he has a major problem evidenced by his frequent rants and personal attacks.
Tony doesn't appear to evidence a new heart and it is 'by their fruits ye shall know them'. If righteous judgement is to be by the content of his posts...he condemns himself.

Often many truly believe they are in total agreement with the Holy Scriptures because of their own interpretation e.g Mr Stott. If we reject gifted men who went before us, then let us examine ourselves and make sure we really are in good and wise scriptural company.
"the danger of those who say that they do not need the theology of gifted men of the past and reject it, because they have their Bible and their own interpretation of it!"

Still evading, Tony?
So I take it you won't be going street preaching with MH then?
'Prevarication' is a word you will be familiar with since you do understand that you refuse to come clean (and repent) as 'A Bible Christian who Believes' (the evidence of those posts are on SA)...is that a technique not unlike like that familiar tainting of all as "jesuit(ic)s"?

So you are not Bible Christian Who Believes?
So you have episodes of amnesia?
JV your imaginary friend?
Log throwing competition with aliens? (Hard to believe ANY Bible Christian could write such ).
Yes possibly a Jesuit or a lunatic would indeed infiltrate a Christian website to stir up and post such tripe AND under a moniker as deceiving and then proven so ridiculous as A Christian Who Believes?
So why not take up Michael's offer to go preaching with him IF you are indeed a Bible Christian
No need for double-talk this time to answer a simple invitation from MH?
So we will observe your straight answer to such an invite to meet up for STREET PREACHING

Yes TLC is ONE multiple personality evolving over the months, but his TLC was the first moniker to buy the t-shirt. His full name is probably banned?

Communism/(socialism) hates Christianity. This was made obvious in Russia where they bulldozed the churches and replaced religion with "people power" However the problem as always was with the "people" who held the power!!
"Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
"This is a quotation from Lord Acton, in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton, 1887: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."
Acton was preceded by William Pitt the Elder, who voiced a similar thought in a House of Lords speech in 1770: "Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and this I know, my lords, that where laws end, tyranny begins.""
