[AUTHOR]Mike[/AUTHOR]"I think ye this: 1.The deciding factor in electing presidents is not, nor can be gay support, by the sheer lack of their numbers. Media publicity doesn't convert to votes. On the other hand, millions of Christian stay-at-home non-votes is a deciding factor.
"If Christians did not vote then how did we get Obama? Did no Christians vote? Or are you inferring that Mick Romney would have been the choice for America? A Mormon for president! I think that a Christian has more power praying for God to raise up a man after His heart, He will raise up a man after His heart. Where in the Word of God are Christians mandated to vote? Now prayer; that's a different thing. When I vote, it is based on who or what group is supporting the candidate, the group's affiliation, and S. C. R. A. P. Size, Cost, Reach & Power. I'll add morality vs or & ethics."
Great Sermon! Great encouragement.
I thank God for SermonAudio and the available spiritual resources.
It is absolutely beneficial to engage with others as we post. There is so much we can say to one another here that cannot be said even in our churches. I have often asked co members, in the church I attend, what happens after Sunday? There is no one to talk with about the many issues challenging our walk. Churchgoers are eager to leave and not fellowship over what the message was about.
When I was a child, my mother and her peer met every Friday night for prayer. It was called a missionary meeting, but they read the Bible and prayed afterward. We don't have that anymore and it leaves us lonely and alone at times.
The more we become individualist and isolate others, the greater the necessity of resources such as SermonAudio and the Chat Board where we meet others.
A thought! Women should be able to find their niche here. This can be their mini pulpit to minister to others.
God has given us a great gift.

"âThese narcissistic politicians will do anything to gain power and prestige. I suppose that Democrat candidates will vie for gay support also. It is sad when that becomes the deciding factor in electing a president to run this once great nation. Can you see where America is headed? Can you see where we are leading other nations? Can you see that the ultimate âman of sinâ will elect a Sodomite ruler - the Antichrist. Little antichrists will give all their support to Sodomite presidents/prime ministers/kings/princes, etc, then the Sodomite Antichrist."

If Graham doesn't want responses to all of his news comments then he could just stop trying to grab the spotlight (as if he ever says anything original or new to begin with). What we would like to hear one day from him that would be newsworthy is the Graham's repentance for leading so many astray and their disaffiliation with the RCC and ecumenical movement. Noname and you brought it up. Just sayin'
" Hey, sc from Oh! I checked the posts and almost an entire page was "Franklin Graham ..." and this was for breakfast. The other person probably had FG for breakfast too.
The Lord loves us. Isn't that great? But FG needs to be toast.
John, Christians have reached out to this bunch with the Gospel. They have rejected it, or used "grace" and "love" of God to justify walking in darkness. The arms of our Lord Jesus Christ are still open and reaching out to all. They need to run to him, not Rubio. Rubio is does not love them if he cannot speak the truth, in love to them. "What they knew of God they did not glorify Him as God. What other groups is Rubio reaching out to? What is the next squeaky wheel he and other candidates will seek to oil with hatred in disguise? Did he reach out to them prior his candidacy?
I don't believe it is going to work out the way Pamela Geller intends anymore than a rap song about killing cops. Who going to take time to question the motive of Judge allows âKilling Jews is Worshipâ MTA ads? My prayer is that Jews find out its intent and not get angry like those folk in Ferguson. How would we feel if signs about killing Christians posted on the subway?

No. We chimps, monkeys and other animals are nothing like you evil perverted killers.
"I'll bet the primates lived in the cities at one time. Then fled to the jungle because of idiotic, non thinking humans. This is a reversal of man making a monkey of himself. I thought it was the other way around. Monkeys gave us our humanity. Duh!
Folks we need to stay before God in prayer just as Daniel and many others did.
While we look for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we can also see the storm brewing around the world.
For ALL POSTERS. Is there any correlation between the weather conditions and rampant sin? Like in the days of S&G, and Noah's day? Worship of creatures - beauty pageant contestants, movie stars,animals, while at the same time aborting babies created in God's image, and with out tongues blessing God while cursing man, accusing some while excusing others, focusing upon man in the pulpit and not giving pre eminence to Christ in his Church, etc. It seems little by little, the suddenly disaster. Keep your umbrella open.

I donât think mainstream Christians get it yet. Maybe they are waiting for the preacher to give it to them watered down in the traditional form, again.

Do you have to be so straightforward and honest. I don't want to believe you! I like milk and pablum. I am comfortable with deceit. And I like preachers who don't teach doctrine.

I am offended to see this article on SermonAudio. It speaks volumes of just what people to to keep racial divide based on outward appearances. I would not have been surprised had it been on FOX news where all the blondies front for weak men, and where we find those our daughters are seeking to look like - Clairol blondes. I suppose we are to agree that the women in JW's church are mostly unattractive. That is a stretch. Michele Obama is a highly intelligent women; a cut above most blondes in the media. She is also an attractive woman. I know many men of other races who would want her as a wife, because she brings a lot to the table of public discussions. I don't appreciate having that article presented for our reading and I think it should have been edited. I also don't appreciate the advertisements. It seems that money is what is driving WND. Christians are so naive to miss what is the motives behind that newspaper. Shame on that hypocrite who wrote the article.
Sublimal Feminist Agenda in our midsts Not to sound disrespectful, The manner that Judy simply disregards and attempts to criticize the Apostle Paul's writings in a an extremely negative shows her lack of utmost discernment and proper obedience to the Scriptures already. If she does sincerely believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, then every written word and teaching from the Apostles of Christ in the New testament should be taken into deep and most serious considerations instead of writing anyone of the Disciples of Christ off due to being a "sinful human being".
May U2's song, "Where the Streets Have No Name" come true in Ireland, England and Wales. So many have died in the "Christian" marches and subsequent battles through certain Catholic neighborhoods and streets including Obins Street and Garvaghy Road, that the band yearns for a time when Christians of all stripes can coexist. They foresee a place where these streets have "no name" and little Protestant and Catholic children can play together without fear of being pelted with the hatred of marchers hurling rocks and bottles.

The Holy Bible is words on a page. Only the Spirit of God can quicken His Word to the heart and bring (eternal) life. The words of the Bible are not written for intellectual knowledge alone, which brings eternal death. The Word of God is not a legal document that transmits knowledge to us that acquits us of sin without change on our part.
When we are filled with the Spirit of God, the Word of God becomes life to us. God's Word becomes reality expressed through our lives being conformed to the Word of God. Without being filled with the Spiritâthe Word of God is a dead letter on a page. No amount of study or knowledge gives life without the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
Joh 3:3 âŚVerily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
1Pe 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
GG, After reading your posts for months, I didn't know if I would ever agree with you about anything... I mean no offense by that statement. If I understand your mind, here, then I share it. What you seek is the true commentary on the creation narrative; from whatsoever quarter it comes.
