Jessica, are you referring to this in 1 Corinthians 5?...
"It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
"And ye are puffed up, and have not rather MOURNED, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you."
"To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus."
That is to say they would not mourn the great evil, but continued on as if it was no big deal, maybe he was a man of stature so they didn't want to make him feel bad for his sin and abuse, instead they should've asked him to leave the fellowship as he was doing great evil....
sc, yes, God is in control and even of those who mock and falsely accuse the brethren. I'm not interested in your laundry list of sins there and comparing and jumping back into the miry clay. The Lord has called Christians out of the old life into a new one. They don't participate in evil and they love the brethren.
wyfarer, there isn't going to be any of that succeshion. expect false flags, crisis actors and entrapments. they've got everything monitored and technology beyond what our fired up viet nam era guys understand. look at Libya and Syria and what was done to the indigenous man there. I'm sorry to say this, but the church has been terribly callous and went along with it, believed the lies, and backed the building of the surveillance state for a number of years. its controlled now. time for the church to get the log out of her own eye. looks to me like the big guys will be trying to save their institutions. people haven't been paying attention, not long ago, tx tried to stop the tsa takeovers in the airports, they were threatened with no fly zones? you remember that? I am not gloating here but only in sorrow when I say I believe that the beloved brethren are about to face the evil they have worked so hard for years to ignore and pacify away with pulpit teachings on psychology and self improvement.
but who's going to save the American worker from the corporation who's syphoning their land and future to make things "equitable"? and who's going to save the soul of those who are so gullible to believe Marxist jargon?
TPP is still a going through, making slave of us all... I don't think he gets it, where is his outrage that elites are pushing for race baiting and violence in our cities, obviously the elites want a civil war and blacks and whites DO NOT! better they get back to fighting for chickens' rights.
title: "Urgent.. Yazoo Prison Torturing Pastor Kent Hovind"
folks they've been moving him around and now he's in some kind of solitary situation, as they've done to him so many times where they put him in a cold room without necessary clothing, even though they are supposed to be letting him out in a number of days. apparently people close to him are concerned that he won't make it out. please pray for him!
Jim, your distaste for children is rather apparent, the way you mock and joke. But those descriptions are not accurate, if you took the time to listen to their interviews and see their pictures. But that would be alternative media and evangelicals call that "conspiracy theory" when real journalists interview people (especially Christians) who have been harmed by the strong arm. Go ahead and mock the children of God some more, Jim, just remember when you see the ocean the power of God is behind that. What did Christ say about forbidding the children.... ? Repent while you still can.
cowards, torturers, liars, thieves, murderers do not see the Kingdom of Heaven. Going along with evil is no mild thing. Is the Spirit of God working in us when we condone the evilest of things? I say this for my own edification.
This deputy president is drawing a line, remember how to do that folks?
I found this article very timely regarding "white collared warrior"
"While these 'pro-family' leaders have been living in luxury and attending meetings with the ‚Äėkings‚Äô in Washington, many of my friends are miles ahead of these fellows. I have friends who have been arrested hundreds of times and have spent months in jail in defense of their unborn brothers and sisters. Jail is nothing new to those who truly defy anti-god edicts. Funny, it was some of the same folks who now claim that they ‚ÄėWILL NOT OBEY‚Äô who actually criticized my friends for defying a government that says that pre-born baby-murder is legal. After all, God ordained the government. Government is good. Read Romans 13. Remember?"
while many have taught compromise to keep their tax exempt status, there are brothers that have civilly spoken the truth in love.
donatists did not believe in forcing people into the Kingdom of God through baptism, nor that baptism should be given to the unbeliever.
donatists believed that the heretical church should not use the force of the state to punish those who disagree.
the donatists philosophically would not be for a religious state in the ME that requires one to be racially pure and the false doctrines of the Talmud as a litmus test for freedoms or ability to work.
Baptists are inconsistent in this manner. scofield modernized the agrarian church and made them vulnerable to the new world order teachings, the merging of all things.
the idea of true repentant Anabaptists is that the reformation did not go far enough, and that the reformers ended up recreating a magistrate structure similar to the RCC.
It is humorous to see those who are against Anabaptists promote the indl worth of Palestinians while antiRCC independents promoting the state/church merger of Israel. its flip flopping of theology and philosophy.
but this is an issue that God will have to sort out. the dispensationalists I"ve talked with believe Armageddon is coming for Israel. For their own good, I'd suggest staying in peaceful lands and coming to Christ, things would go better for them this way.
dear brother UN, I'll let you have the last word on this, but just to clarify. I believe that corporatism is opposed to free market. I also believe corporatism and communism hold hands. A simple look at the definition of fascism would show a merging of state and corporation. you see this when the head of the major gm producer then moves into gov positions and shields the company from lawsuits or from disclosure of their activities or when they create dhs ending indvl rhgts, then some idiotic guy is put on the plane, and burns his underwear and that head of state then comes on tv to say we must now have naked scans of our body.... and low and behold we find he's invested in those very machines... they write the laws and write their own checks. been happening since at least the railroad days. but I'm off. Good day!
Dolores, that's right. why escalate things? and why buy into the tv propaganda? they want the "races" to hate each other. that's why I was saying watching an alternative sight that is welcomed on the streets (they detest the MSM) was encouraging, you start to hear the nuances, you cannot understand til you listen. and that listening has to go both ways. if inner city folk understood, and I think many do, that the working class is struggling to survive for the same reasons they are, then they might unite and clean up corruption, and we can't have that!! there was a story out about a white man attacked by police dog had his face chewed on till he passed out, another was a woman who was shot while handcuffed, they said she was shooting at them. huh?
the issue is that DHS is federalizing the police dep's and gearing them with war machines. the republic was created with sheriff jurisdiction and local accountability. the escalation is used to expand the fed expansion, just trace DOJ and Soros (again private money) in these things.
what can you do when powerful men want the escalation? do what is just, pray and do not let the devil have a foothold in the body of Christ.
