I hope someone reads the bible to Trump, otherwise he'll get all confused.
For instance, I am reading, the cornerstone of Zion is Christ and those who believe in Christ are the living stones. This is explained in 1 Peter 2. So if he wants to see Zion in action, he might join some Redeemed Jews and Gentiles in their worship of the Cornerstone.
Or perhaps they might read to him verse 9, and there he will find out who the holy nation is.
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light."
Here's hoping that the called out ones don't stumble over the stumblers, and reserve their allegiance to their King.
Christ, "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature" Col 1:15
"For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Col 2:9
well brother, being grieved in the Spirit is not hypocrisy. I agree with the couple being accused and their efforts to make a statement, and yes people need to hear the gospel. There's two witnesses in each situation. There's the witness to the individual sinner and the need to deal in a political reality. If the gov comes down with a form for new hirelings that they have to sign a form endorsing sodomy (this has happened in a few cases) or a judge cannot be put on the bench because he volunteers as a boy scout (back before they put sodomites in charge of boys, this would disqualify judges in CA if they did philanthropy that wasn't sodomy friendly) -- well these are real men having to deal with political situations. So we have both witnesses, to the individual and corporately as to what is right or wrong. Like abortion, you have a young lady who is guilt ridden from her experience to share the gospel with, but come on now, they are murdering those babies and selling their organs in OUR neighborhoods. this is the political witness.
some evangelicals tend to voice one witness or the other and then beat up the other for not being like them. Christ warned of "devouring one another"
I agree with you on this sc. there's way too much giving up on people. reminds me of the scripture, "love thy neighbor". I also think this is supposed to be a fundamental role of women in the home, as healthy food prepared well and healthy water are the foundations of physical health, as provided by our Heavenly Father and caretaking of the sick. Good day.
in order to ascertain that thousands of original century texts are not accurate for one reason or another, one would have to be a scholar in Greek and history, no? we are dealing with texts that go back to just years from Christ. this is truly exciting. another is in the works right now, amazing closeness to the time of Jesus. there is a testimony to the world in this. they say the Word of God was changed. It wasn't. Reminds me of the discussion on 1Cor15, the first Christian creed. Secularists demanded it was a late text, but later even secular scholars found it was an early text, shows that we are not in a morphed religion, but rather, Christ is the foundation from the beginning. (even the beginning of time)
"On July 29, US Congressman Bill Posey made his last stand on the floor of the House. Granted five minutes to speak, he laid bare the lying of the CDC in a now-famous 2004 study that exonerated the MMR vaccine and claimed it had no connection to autism.
‚ÄúNo connection to autism‚ÄĚ was the lie.
"Congressman Posey read a statement from long-time CDC researcher William Thompson, one of the authors of the 2004 Pediatrics study designed to determine, once and for all, whether the Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine could cause autism.
"Thompson saw and participated in violating the protocol of the study. He was there. He helped his co-authors destroy documents that would have shown an MMR-autism link"
Brothers and Sisters I haven't studied DSS myself, but its not going to be much diff, because God has preserved His Word. I didn't the comment yet about growing more in the KJV than other versions. I can certainly see why a pastor would choose the KJV, memorizing in it seems easier to me and that is the best way to learn the Word is for it to remain in the heart and mind. This is a conversation is a joy to have.
There are many reformed seminaries who use the KJV in assembly but teach the original languages to pastors. Now many Baptist pastors do not have that background, use the KJV and serve the Lord with great boldness. the original languages and backgrounds bring out understanding to us. Much of what we just commonly hear in sermons today comes from these kinds of studies.
if any want to study something interesting from the Lordship of Christ position, is to the dead sea scrolls and the communities at that time, their protests of gross corruption in the temple system. It seems Christ came to do something monumental, a people that could go anywhere with the Holy Spirit, that He would preserve through tribulation.
Like the Word of God, He also preserves His people, so I'll move on. Thank you.
we are in a spiritual battle, not just intellectual. I pray God raises up a generation supernaturally empowered for the task at hand. May the true church quit bowing to the naturalistic, intellectual altar of Darwin, demeaning and denying the full orbed work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers, to take back her spiritual inheritance in Jesus Christ. Intellectualism does not prepare the Christian for an occultic world. The occult was hidden from their eyes, even though it was there, but now is being released into everyday affairs. May the true church break from her self made confines to be the light and salt.
excellent Mr. Ham! Kids are being told they come from monkeys and get dumbed down teaching about the bible, no wonder they are leaving! Plus our way of living reflects an evolutionary point of view....

I pray that when tribulation hits staunch dispensational pretribbers in particular, that they will turn to Christ instead of turning on the brethren. I pray that they will not take the mark of the beast or lose their souls to the endtimes deceptions, thinking they are exempted from these challenges. I've already seen hearts soften these last few years, this is a good thing. I also pray that Christ is given His place of preeminence in our hearts, because He is our King right now.
