He mentioned this very thing about signs of renewed racial tension and violence between the white and black as it was during the civil outrage in the 50s&60s. Along with weather changes, christian persecution, churches losing their tax exemptions and christian organizations and much more that I see beginning to happen. I, too, found myself reacting to comments that were not very christ like, to those that were really over zealous with their comments but never owned up to it because they ere right and I was wrong so in their zeal they were setting me straight. I just laugh at it now and try to absorb the hurt and let the Lord in His wisdom handle it for me.
Dolores, we cannot, we cannot lose. Yet we are all in the same boat of frailties. Let the righteous smite ... it shall be a kindness. All things are for our sake. Isn't that great? All things are for our sake. Allow, as much as lies within you, conform you to 1 Corinthians 13 and behold the Lamb. The world models the church which is to be God's witness and signpost. Joy in him for all things. May God's Spirit be with yours.
This is not to discourage you but to have you consider who and what we are in this world. E.g. the Christian.
Christians are not called to "causes." Let the âworldâ do what they are naturally inclined to do. And let the Christian do what was commanded to do. Causes are just like Christmas when individuals from every walk of life get together like ONE BIG WORLD under the dominion of darkness. Or, like Democrats and Republicans. You cannot make a distinction. Besides the Christian is told that our battle is the Lordâs and our battle is not with flesh and blood. Our weapon is mightier through the proclamation of the Word of God, living lives worthy of our calling, and through prayer. The crowd calling out for the crucifixion of the Savior was a mixed multitude; the immoral, amoral, and moral, and the religious; but none being necessarily righteous. Some ignorant believers get mixed up in almost anything. This is why a deep understanding of Godâs eternal purposes are important; which comes with teaching doctrine.
[AUTHOR]John UK[/AUTHOR]I'll have a crack at this one. [/QUOTE]Isn't Judaism what Jesus was up against during the days of his flesh? Wasn't this the group that joined Rome to crucify our Lord? Do Christians have ties to Judaism? Where is it in scripture?
Listen People: There Has Always Been Here In America A Holy & Divine Institiution Called "Marriage" Between One Man & One Wife. So why aren't we talking about ISIS?
And THE ANTICHRIST has Always Been Trying To DESTROY us with the TERROR of ISIS and inner city rioting cause by him. ! So, ***THE GREAT CONSPIRACY*** &-OR "THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY (THAT) DOTH ALREADY WORK" In The U.S.A. today through ISIS and distracting lies of the media.
ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT; HEADED BY HIS ONE-ISIS Terrorist Group and America's new media.
"And I Beheld Another BEAST - ISIS and America's new media.
And HE Doeth GREAT WONDERS, In The Sight Of Men And HE Causeth All, Both Small And Great, Rich And Poor, Free And Bond to become distracted from real issues - the growing threat of Islamist proselytzing our young innocent men who are in jails for misdemeanors and concocted lies.
"Judeo-Christian heritage"? Isn't Judaism what Jesus was opposed to during the days of his flesh. Isn't Judeo-Christian is a new term of the 20th century? Aren't the Judaizers part of Judeo system of thinking? Does Christianity have it roots in Judaism? If so, where is it scripture? I'd like to know.

Ouch! "Notes of A Hanging Judge" is a must read. You will see the real intention of the Welfare Program. Also, when a man is denied meaningful employment in order to support his family, it has a toll on every aspect of society and spiritual life. There was an intrusion upon the Affirmative Action Program to change the economic status of those the program was designed to help -minorities; Black male minorities. But due to greed and systemic judicial inequities (another issued too long for post), these men were made to feel less than what God created the for - headship and providers for their families. This needs further discussion. Think on this: No man lives unto himself. As long as one man is discriminated against; all are discriminated against. None is exempt. Also, there is always enough to meet every man's need; but never enough to meet a single man's greed. These are paraphrased thoughts of others. Finally, Jesus came to set men free. So, why are white men so afraid of white men, esp Chsristian white men who too often make choicesâ after the flesh?â

I'm only commenting because I have been misunderstood in the past and called racist. Nope.
We all have been called 'racist' at one time or another; and we've all misunderstood or been misunderstood, and WE ALL ... But for me I was way out of line and ask forgiveness for my ungodly assault on SC. I don't know if I should even continue posting; as the NEWS headlines, in focus, send me into a mindless orbit. Their words subtly engineer our thoughts, even myself; thinking I have it all together. I just wish the church, believers, would become more intentional in breaking down ungodly walls erected by the wicked. A former poster recommended that we go into Jericho, Samaria, and Ninevah with love and the GOSPEL OF PEACE - reconciling men to God.
I am not defending anyone; white or black. I just think it behooves us to refrain from repeating things that engender strife, or fills us with ungodly expectations, no matter who it comes from. Words take on a life of their own. So do pictures! We must minister grace to the hearer. I would not even repeat what is in the headlines because 'words take on life' and diminish hope. These young people who know nothing of spiritual warfare are destroying themselves and others with their lyrics. They are framing worlds of destruction. Even the cops are affected by the words framing their small world. Al Sharpton is a big part of the problem. He is a disgrace and needs to be recognized as such. I wish you hadn't brought up his name. Because he vexes my spirit. But I can pray for renewal. I believe that if everyone looks forward to national rioting, God will give our nation the desire of its heart. Far fetched? They go to God fasting and praying.
S C from OH And how would you label âwhite copsâ who kill those made in Godâs image with impunity? âgorilla familyâ I can only say to you what our Lord said to those who thought they were of Abrahamâs seed. âYou are of your father the devil.â I mean that. You are a little demon. You like most unregenerate degenerates leave wars for your children to clean up. No wonder there is so much ADHD and sicknesses like paranoia, schizophrenia, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. because you are ignorant of your own father, the devilâs, devices. I hope I am wrong in interpreting your post. I really do. Because for a new creature to say things like this is not of God. It is something Hitler would say. And, George Bush wanted to nationalize the police force. It is all part of the New World Order. Mike, who cares about a personal text about the spreading âŚ Your words can kindle a fire. You are not discerning about this spiritual issue. SC from OHIO. You are the one who needs salvation from yourself. You have cursed the image of God and then think God will accept your praise. Don't think you're OK. OK?
Jim and Dorcas, perhaps we can see it this way. All things are for our sake. We cannot lose. Their heresy and attempts to keep people in the dark causes us to pray more fervently, study more earnestly as the noble Bereans in preparation to give answers that effectively change the way truth is presented to those captives. It is true, they cannot give what they have not received. A good thing is their acknowledgment of having delivered "boring" sermons. Hopefully, many will find saying the rosary boring as well as useless. This realization of something missing just might bring some to the true light. Perhaps they go to the stream of living waters (John 4). I certainly will pray for this to become a reality. May the joy of the Lord become theirs.
Pennned, regarding vaccinations, you will find the following references to Youtube videos helpful to mull over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgiMqgjS-zM presented by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz of Dr. Robert Gallo's findings. Also, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amXSy7ZDhsI, another by Dr. Horowitz, AIDS was manufactured by the Government - Dr. Len Horowitz. I wish I could get to you DVDs of extensive studies on eugenics. It is not a new phenomena. However, it is more blatant because those who control media have cause so much division demographically, in every genre, etc. You name it! The powers that be want to conquer at the cost at losing their souls. This is why we, Christians, must make every attempt to go beyond cultural borders to be light to the alienated. They are blind and need sight. They hear and yet do not hear. I hope my grammar is understandable.
"[AUTHOR]Michael Hranek[/AUTHOR]If you want to read something bizzare listen to the RC St Augustine's allegory of the Good Samaritan. It is way beyond me how so many adore this Dr of the RCC as somekind of authoritative Bible expert. I imagine the lost and ignorant think it is so spiritual
A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho = Adam Jerusalem = the heavenly city of peace from which Adam fell Jericho = the moon, and thereby signifies Adamâs mortality Thieves = the devil and his angels Stripped him = namely of his immortality Beat him = by persuading him to sin And left him half-dead = as a man he lives, but he died spiritually, therefore he is half-dead The priest and the Levite = the priesthood and ministry of the Old Testament The Samaritan = is said to mean âGuardian,â and therefore means Christ himself Bound his wounds = means binding therestraint of sin Oil = comfort of Good hope Wine = exhortation to work with a fervent spirit Beast = the flesh of Christâs incarnation Inn = the church The morrow = after the Resurrection Two-pence = promise of this life and the life to come Innkeeper = Paul"
Mike, This is so bizarre until I need specific reference. E.g. page etc. I wonât believe this until I read it firsthand. Repulsive!
If I were a candidate and it was my time in history to be recognized and heard by millions, I would want the most divisive questions about homosexuality, abortions, greed and feminism that could be put forth. Then I could in context tell the world what God thinks about each of these issues. What a witness that would be to this lost and evil world. The media call these things gotcha questions, because they are harder to spin, but the real issue is why do they even try to spin them. The reason is of course part of my presupposition; no practicing Christian can be elected to high political office. If they tell the truth in a Godly manner, they will not be elected. The best they can hope for is to try and spin their way to success as some sort of an ungodly greater good concept.[/QUOTE]So Frank, why not throw your hat in the ring. You have as much to offer, and probably more, than they have offered. All you need is to ask the others S. C. R. A. P. See an earlier post for description of acronym.
LIARS! LIARS! LIARS! Every one of them. They will find themselves in Hell.
Oh my God, You alone are holy. Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake. Answer our prayers to you to vindicate Your holy and righteous name. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? They have profaned Thy name. Deal with them according to their doings. My soul waits upon Thee. Until our prayers are answered, we will take the Gospel to every creature.
Mike wrote: "Same-sex marriage debate forces GOP contenders to tread carefully" They aren't being forced into anything, but are letting themselves be intimidated by a few loud noisemakers, and their media defenders. Let one stand for truth, not be intimidated, and he WILL be elected. It is the usual liberal media lapdogs who put out this "Republicans be careful" nonsense. Note this is a Washington Post news item. Isn't that enough to know? Isn't it interesting how we listen as if it meant anything real?
By-the-way, Mike and other posters. Who owns the newspaper publishing companies and magazines. I knew only of William Randolph Hearst who flooded the market with magazines appealing to the senses; titillating our base nature and had many woman putting their husbands into debt with aesthetics, etc. Who's behind preparing us to accept future increases in violence and skyrocketing prices, etc. before it happens. First, they prepare us to accept what they are planning for their gain. It is the "history of the future." Everyone MUST read The Iron Curtain Over America, by J. Beaty and Report From Iron Mountain, by L. Lewin. You'll be glad you did.
