Great Sermon! As a believer, i am against any type of christian symbols in my local church of any kind, esp the cross. I believe that a local church should just have 4 walls and a roof. It's alright to place christian verses on walls but when it comes to 2-d or 3-d symbols, to me that's a no no. Of course i also believe there should be a separation of state and faith.
Freshwater Just to add, from an historical angle, this Freshwater came from Noah's day where water fell onto land and seeped thru the soil and also flowed beneath the ocean floors. Other Freshwater fell into the oceans and in order to contain the ocean, I think God also compressed the land shelves to make space for the large volume of water. As a result of this land compression mountains became even higher reaching 29k feet n vertical land masses like Mt Everest were formed. I find it fascinating that we have the evidence all along backing Noah's event from the discovery of freshwater right under our feet.
Jaws Thanks vry much to both Gib Ham and Trevor for bringing this excellent programme to listeners. It was From Gib that i 1st learnt abt 'Fighting for the Faith' and Trevor who highlighted this episode. I think Janet Meford had to apologise in order to protect her colleagues n their livelihoods. She simply cannot stand by her guts n ideology while hundreds of her christian colleagues whom she loves dearly may potentially lose their livelihood by the closure of her programme. Thks to u both, i understand the backroom ongoings n corruption of christian radio n these host/hostess escapades has again heightened the need to be discerning abt christian books, broadcast, sermons n the likes.
Heart breaking I am disappointed with Meford that she has to compromise her christian principles because of the legal system and pressure from her company. It makes me respect her less. But i still erespect her. I think in her position i wld bow down to external pressure too for fear of losing my only income n go thru the rigmorale of looking for anothervjob.
Informative. Not to add insult to injury, but i am so glad i don't live in USA, or neither in the north or south American continent. If i'm in the north, i'll feel that i'm in bondage to the south. And if i'm from the south i'll feel oppressed from the north.
Great Sermon! I always tort that AOG was a cult. I was too lazy to read up on their statement of faith. Thks to u, now i know they are just plain old pentacostals/charismatics, except for the splinter group that u brought up. Really appreciate again your detailed exposition.
Great Sermon! I think the marathoner is consumed with superstition. 666 is nothing to be afraid of. If i live in a house bearing 666 i am fine with that. Or if i have a licence plate with 666, i am ok with that too. Whatever it is 666 is for the tribulation period which we are not part of.
Great Sermon! Remember that circumcision is mandatory not only for the children of Israel but for Muslims too. Besides all that they are those who choose to be circumcised for health reasons. For Judaism the custom of having circumcision is to have it on the 8th day, a day where blood clot fastest in babies n healing wld be the swiftest. So it does not fall under human rights issue.
Good speaker. Some charismatics like Joel Osteen seems so irrelevant. In these cases, I cannot detect a single baby in the bath water. So it doesnt matter if we just dump the water away w impunity.
Impressive conference. Listened to one of the first speakers but fell asleep and when awoke next morning it had ended with the announcement of an impressive buffet dinner for the participants. Hope the organisers will broadcast all the speaches after conference ends in 3days. Thks vry much for informing everyone abt this conference or many would not know abt it. Btw your newsif has always been EXTREMELY useful in getting the word out abt present events. Thats y i listen to u everyday.
U are too hard on yourself U are too hard on yourself. Pls don't be. I think authorship is not, as u put it, a 'gigantic mistake'. Everyone forgets things sometime or another. While authorship may sometimes lay context, it is not doctrinally important. In any case the Lord Jesus wrote all words in scripture.
Frustrating mega church leaders irrational talk It is not only American Christianity that's superficial, Gib, Most countries have the exact same phenomenon. The days of revival n reformation are over. These are the last of the last days when church members are increased with goods, covetous, and feel that they have little need for God.
DEFINITION OF SIN AND LOVE "We must always be reminded that sin is the exaltation of self. Sin crushes love. Sin is getting our way, and getting what we want." -"Love on the other hand is the exaltation of others above self. In these last days, is love dead? Is love, like truth, taken outback and three bullets put thru its head?"
CHRISTIANITY INVOLVE SACRIFICE BEC WE OWNED BY GOD On 11 July 2013 in a podcast entitled Movies, Songs, and Sin, Priscilla reminded listeners that CHRISTIANITY INVOLVES SACRIFICE BEC WE ARE NOT OUR OWN SO WE CANNOT DO AS WE PLEASE. All sin has consequences.
