The civil magistrate is a ministry of justice, obeying and enforcing God's law in the punishment of the lawbreaker for the protection of the lawkeeper. The church is a ministry of grace, obeying and enforcing the law of God in the preaching and teaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus, Gods law is to be supreme in the state as well as the church. Any attempt to base a theory of the civil magistrate on secular axioms rather on Scripture results in anarchy.
Spiritual terrorists and saboteurs within the church pose a far more serious threat than manifestly hostile forces on the outside. From the very start of the church age, all the most spiritually deadly onslaughts against the gospel have come from people who pretended to be Christians- not from atheists and agnostics on the outside. John MacArthur
Texe Marrs frog in throat conspiracy I think your comparison with Ruckman may be spot on! Yet the continuous 'CAPS'; continuous personal insults; continuous smearing of posters as 'jesuit(ic)'; the attacks on SA moderator; various untruths; the bombshells of 'friends who have visited hell and wrestled with aliens- further suggests he is deliberately out to discredit evangelicals by giving appearance he is one! His posts are often venomous and lack any Christian charity; nor does he attempt 'fellowship' with any other poster!! Alarm bells?
Btw I have little affinity with US KJO'ism and James White has exposed such foolishness. Examples such as the first link we have Gipp sending a colouring book and crayons and the second we have Texe Marrs and that silly frog in the throat conspiracy. If Satan wanted to discredit the KJV would it not be be through such unwise and erroneous extremism. We know Satan does work exactly by such means!
Personally I am Textus Receptus and the KJV is well established as a proven and accurate translation, so that remains my own preference. I too have no time for a debate!

You are welcome, Jim!
Keep warning others, though I very much doubt any discerning believer will be taken in.
His best one was when he said he had been to Ralph Ovadal's church, but Ralph came on SA and warned that he hadn't!
TLC is one strange individual. He is either a complete fraud who uses SA to stir the pot...maybe even a clever RC? Just read those posts by TLC under 'A BIBLE CHRISTIAN WHO BELIEVES' and tell me that is the work of a sane evangelical? Just makes Bible believers look very odd and maybe that is his purpose with his irate CAPS

Tony Lopez Cisneros...we still recall your posts under 'A Christian Who (makes) Believe(s)...' when YOU claimed to have a friend who wrestled with aliens etc. NOW YOU CLAIM THE ABOVE as a 'BIBLICAL LITERALIST'
WHATEVER YOU OR THIS OTHER INDIVIDUAL ARE ON IT NEEDS URGENT COUNTER- MEDICATION

If the literal locust or whatever is literally chained.. was your pal one of the PRISON GUARDS in the "ABYSS"? OR AN INMATE ON A PSCHIATRIC WARD?

Just a reminder TONY. Most of your recent posts as a true blue jew have been removed. Just like your silly nonsense as 'A Christian Who Believes' with the deceit about your magic friends and meeting aliens and worse.
It doesn't take a magician to work out deceit, only a sound mind. Jesus said: 'Take Heed that no man deceives you'. You are a conspiracy addict and whatever your aims on SA comments forum...you appear to only deceive yourself.
John UK wrote: There was a time Christopher when I gave out chick tracts..
John is wise and correct.
'Jack Chick has a history of publishing sensational stories that proved to be false testimonies, such as John Todd and the Closet Witches (Rebecca Brown and Elaine). This should be an alarm bell in itself. Chick should have been required to provide significant proof Rivera is for real. Based on the fact that Chick has printed fraudulent testimonies in the past, it is very risky to accept Chick's response the he knows Rivera was for real because he prayed about it.'
Having once spent months researching Alberto Rivera and being involved in a debate several years ago, the only witness was another supposed former RC Priest who said that the Pope signed Rivera's death warranty with a golden pen and invisible ink! How convenient! Contacting brethren in the country where this guy lived (Canada) there was no evidence he had even existed, never mind a witness to Rivera. Conveniently he then had cancer and couldn't answer any emails
You don't need conspiracy nuts or sensational claims as there are plenty of proven sound resources by real former RC priests see
TLC slandering sa (SERMON AUDIO) and at last his posts are removed as he appears as Taking A Public Stand...well done MA!
I agree with him for once that we are not all stupid here as we can discern inane posts which demonstrates the real heart of those that post them.
I am 100% convinced that TLC appears just to sow discord and make Bible Christians look like they have severe mental problems. No bible believer could be taken in by such. View his posts on life on the moon before 1969 and much worse. Now he even discredits Sermon Audio...only like a wolf in sheeps clothing appearing within the ranks.
The Lord knows what you are TLC so time to repent like David did in this evening's Spurgeon Devotional... if you do possess any spiritual life at all (I personally doubt such) you will take heed.
Your addiction to the jesuits might suggest much, eh? as you pretend to be an off beam and off the wall extreme KJV ONLYIST loony fundamentalist?
John UK wrote: But the facts show otherwise, especially in Presby circles, as many of their ships have already sunk, and those sons of God on board have had to find a new fellowship in which to worship the Lord. "If the salt have lost his savour..."
Some good points, bro'
Sadly the problem in the UK has been evolving for over 50 years even more particularly amongst non-reformed churches. As the Baptist Union is ecumenical (the downgrade since Spurgeon's days) and many independant evangelical churches display serious compromises. Even brethren assemblies are fast disappearing.
The major presbyterian churches in the UK are still strong evangelical defenders of the faith and hold to the TBS Bible position...Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, Free Church Continuing; FPC of Ulster etc.
There is a creeping new calvinism and 'charismatic' doctrines of grace that needs to be examined, before it is more rampant in the UK.

John 7:8-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Go up to the feast yourselves; I DO NOT GO UP to this feast because My time has not yet fully come.‚ÄĚ Having said these things to them, He stayed in Galilee. But when His brothers had gone up to the feast, THEN HE Himself ALSO WENT UP, not publicly, but as if, in secret.
John 7:8-10 English Standard Version (ESV)
You go up to the feast. I AM NOT[a] GOING UP to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come.‚ÄĚ After saying this, he remained in Galilee. But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, THEN HE ALSO WENT UP, not publicly but in private.
a.John 7:8 Some manuscripts add YET
John 7:8-10 King James Version (KJV)
Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up ***YET*** unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. But when his brethren were gone up, then WENT HE ALSO UP unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

Concerned Father wrote: Mike, Obama is all about Obama. His desire is for power. Jesus told us to care for the poor, but he did not tell us to steel from one person in order to do that. Jesus also did not tell us that the government was supposrdd to teach our children for us, no matter how good their intentions supposedly are. There is nothing sanctified about the agenda that the governmrnt is foisting on our children. sex ed is an example.

Mr Schwarb (Not you, pope)
I read the above and the fact you listen/read John MacArthur and wonder how you ever came to be a piece of dust stuck somewhere under the snake's belly. In other words how a sinner now appears to be a RC under the influence of the Antichrist papal system?
You appear to have abandoned one system for another without having the biblical saving faith that is presented in the former? How come you were in a Reformed Seminary? Did you one time profess the doctrines of grace and abandon such? Apostasy (renounce, abandon, defect)?

What is yor purpose in posting here?
Below is a church that can answer your questions from the Holy Scriptures for here is presented the saving Gospel of Christ in all its fullness. Would save you much wasting of time attempting to confuse here, by once again consulting the Truth!
Silofolous wrote: The Apostle Paul himself used that exact phrase in 1 Corinthians 15:36: "Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die" (KJV).
Thou fool,.... Not transgressing the law of Christ, which makes him that calls his brother a fool in danger of hell fire; for the apostle said not this in anger, and from a malevolent disposition, as that rule supposes, but out of zeal for truth, and to reprove the stupidity and folly of such a bold objector; in opposing the veracity and power of God, in setting up his reason above divine revelation, and in not attending even to natural philosophy itself; in which professing to be wise he might be justly called a fool, and therefore sends him to the husbandman to learn of him how to answer his own queries...Gill's Commentary

Who was Willson Ewin?
40 years of ministry to Roman Catholics because of love. When he came to Quebec in 1953 with his wife and three daughters, the Province was indeed, in the words of Pope Pius XII at that time, "the most Catholic country in the world." As such, all those seeking to bring God's Word to French Canada, were subject to various forms of persecution. Yet perseverance in gospel work was maintained for it was fueled by love for the Roman Catholic.
Nevertheless, 1953 was a difficult and somewhat dangerous period for missionaries to minister among the Catholic population. Wilson has been jailed, stoned, man handled and threatened with death. Through God's blessing, hundreds of Catholics were saved and several churches built, one of those being in the New England States.
