Then the Feds should do what Lucifer Obama does when institutions oppose his evil agenda and hold back funds, grants etc. to Colleges that Violate the first amendment? And Christians fear a Trump Presidency more than clinton? A man who has been censored would be an ally not an enemy to the Christian faith? We must support the Repub. candidate no matter who it is! It is alos imperative to have the Repubs. hold the House and Senate! Or our liberties are gone forever in America? But then again maybe its time that we adopt an Hebrews 11 faith in these wicked days!
The Bible never uses the word Trinity to describe the person of God but it is a biblical concept nonetheless? The same is true for Church Membership? The word translated Church means Assembly, that is a visible Assembly of believers who represent Christ and the kingdom of God on earth. We join an Assembly as a sign of our Fellowship with the Triune God by the new birth a sign of solidarity with the people of God who walk by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and obey His word. Also after we have made a profession of Faith, that is a credible one we are called and commanded to be Baptized again as a sign that we have been raised from the dead in our hearts and demonstrate that newness of spiritual life we share in Christ Jesus. We then join ourselves to a sound and faithful body of believers who share a like minded faith and practice. We become accountable for our Christian conduct and submit ourselves to sound doctrine under the appointed Pastoral leadership ordained by the Head of the Assembly which is Christ Himself. There we are edified and subject to discipline if necessary by both the Overseers, Pastors and the brethren who help us maintain a life of faith and good works. While this is basic Christian teaching nevertheless it captures what is implied under the idea of Membership
Who cares if these expensive seminaries close! Seminary or the concept is not Biblical any way! It is the Ekklesia that is responsible for the call and training of Pastors!Degrees are not a precondition for the Pastoral Office or the cultivation of those qift's and qualifications. Sorry Al you have no sympathy here.
P. Derford wrote: "Republican presidential hopefuls are struggling with how to position themselves on same-sex marriage" America is being tested by God. Politicians are driven by ambition which is a feature of pride and thus sin. America will then be judged by her leadership - politicians! But the smell of hell is already in the Whitehouse and the Government. America has already taken the wrong path and is guilty of rejecting the law and the word of God. Rubio is already back-pedalling and has suggested that Sodom and Gomorrah is something some people are born with; quote, "that sexual preference is something that people are born with" unquote. So God and the Bible are already being put on the back shelf whilst their ambitions are satisfied. The wrath of God is being brought down upon America even harder than previously. They have failed the test. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness" Rom 1:18.
Quite a lot of unsaved people subscribe to this forum? But this is what God has ordained for this sin cursed world! The old Negro spiritual rings aloud when it declares a solemn biblical truth, a whole lotta folks talkin about heaven ain't gettin there"! Exactly what Jesus said! I pray not for the world but for those who have given me etc.. John 17
Who cares what this reprobate has to say about anything! This is the natural reaction of all unsaved people to the God of Holy Writ! This demonstrates unless God takes action in the hearts of sinners they will resist the truth! The carnal mind is at enmity with the law of God etc... Romans 8:7 John 6:44
Christians with tatoos? Oh what a wicked and crooked generation we live in! Many are called but FEW are chosen! Even so come Lord Jesus! Make your calling and election sure dear friends for wrath of God is going to fall severely on this apostate generation!
Biblical movies are a waste of time if you want Biblical accuracy and integrity on the part of unbelievers! Russel Crowe? Do you think that this fool will do a honest portrait of Noah and its true meaning? I think not! So what else can we expect? Also movies like this always seek to find approval from the Roman Catholic clergymen? That says a lot?
It seems that on so called Christian college campuses those who know that homosexuality is a sin and a reminder of just how depraved the fallen human heart is are being allowed less and less freedom to share such a testimony without being forced to give equal time to a contrary opinion on this particular subject. The homophobic stereotype apparently carries great weight among our Christian academics as demonstrated by this college who refuse to be true to the word of God, however kindly in order to appease its sodomite student body?
Farrakhan is a favorite with the largely apostate Black church and its racist liberation Theology! It is frightening to think what torment he and his wicked followers will suffer in the lake of fire! Oh God have mercy on this wicked man and deliver him from the wrath to come. For Jesus sake AMEN!
The RC version of liberation Theology is Marxist in its basic tenets. The Black version follows the same Marxist themes as well! This is the same heresy espoused by reprobates like Tony Campolo and Jim Wallis. In fact aspects of liberation Theology have been with us since the mid 1800's.
Everyone is so worried about persecution but I say let come what may! Christ is with His people and we will triumph in the end! Fear not the wicked and the uncircumcised philistines of this world. May God for Christ sake save many in this wicked generation.
