The GOP's War on Tea Party May Cost it the Senate

While Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top Republicans have bragged about their desire to destroy the so called Tea Party, or their own conservative GOP base, even their own polls are demonstrating how they may have over-reached and may pay the price by failing to capture a Senate majority this year.

"This infighting has taken its toll," said Amy Walter, a national political analyst for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. Republicans "are not as enthusiastic as they were in 2010. Even they are a little bit disillusioned by what's been happening over the last couple years."

That also means Republican candidates are not getting the benefit of the doubt among independent voters as they did in 2010, Walter added. ...

I will say some of you have noticed some of the problems we're having with IFBs and other Evangelical not keeping their eye on the ball, and even dropping it at times.

The Christian Right Movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, Notes on Reconstructionism.

Good Afternoon Sisters....
Ladybug....your post was spot on concerning the absolute decline of the local assembles. They are a joke with a capital J.
We have visited several and even relocated trying to find one in our home state...to no avail.
Thank you for your kind and encouraging words.

Pennned...Amen

"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost,be with you all".

Dorcas,

Dear sister, your problem of not being able to find a solid, true church is one that is ever-growing. I know of a dear sister in Iowa who has the same problem as you. It is shameful that it should be so, but unfortunately man adds to God's word, or takes from it; the end result is division and leads to many following a religion or denomination instead of following Christ.
The doctrines of grace are clearly taught by God throughout His word, but many have taken to adhering themselves to 'camps' or 'denominations' instead of cleaving to Christ and His word. Both Calvinism and Arminianism are extreme brands of religion, but true biblical Christianity and the balance it brings can be found by those who are teachable, who cry out for wisdom and seek to be taught by God the Spirit, NOT man the deceiver. However, it more than likely will mean you will have to break away from what calls itself 'church' here in America.

May the Lord bless you as you gather in your home to worship Him, I am sure your worship is most pleasing to Him and exceeds far above what we see in many churches.

Dorcas, I guarantee you not all IFBs are the same, yes, some almost demand the use of the KJV and are Arminian, mine does neither. You can --read-- this booklet by my pastor, Election: Whose Choice?, and it is in HTML format.

Romans 11
6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
7 What then? That which Israel is seeking for, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;---NASB

So, there is some variety in IFBs, though thankfully those who follow literal, grammatical, and historical method interpretation usually are quite similar in practices and believes, you might want to listen to, Why the Differences Over What the Bible Says.

50 miles? I thought going 50 miles in Texas was like going 5 here in NY. Anyway, my meeting house, a good one, is a mere 4 miles away.

Let me give an example of local "churches" in our area.
Mormon...RC...Pentecostal, Arminian,Dispensational,IFB, who despise those who believe the biblical doctrines of grace...even take to the airwaves to denounce and spew their venom against "those rotten Calvinists"
The nearest meeting house is a 120 miles one way down a mountain road.
So we worship at home and praise God for Sermon Audio.

Mike of N.Y., you must really feel uncomfortable in N.Y. I have to say, I've always lived in Nebr. except for going to school and in when I was in the military. Now, I have to admit the neo-Confederacy movement, has been around for a long time in this state -- as I said, mainly settled by Union veterans, people from the East coast, etc. but there has always be an anti-thinking group, who when in the minority were quaint even amusing when they couldn't do any damage. However, with the depletion of gene pool in this state, smart people leaving for better jobs in other states, growth of Roman Catholicism..., the Ultra-Traditionalist Catholic, seems to have a power base here and in Kansas, and apparent general decline in general education, we have been transformed into a howling Tea-Party state. Utterly disgusting. I probably think more like an Iowan now, than a Nebraskan, though all Christians should recognize The Inadequacy of Moralism!

Yes, there should be more good local churches John U.K., but Americans aren't bothered driving 50 miles.

Phew! That is serious, GS. But it sure illustrates the point I was making. There seems to be a general deterioration in local churches, which is escalating. What do the saints do?

At one time, an individual could begin evangelistic work in his home area, and at least get a home Bible Study going. But that is becoming increasingly difficult, and may one day even become illegal.

Is anyone getting born again in these days? Is Jesus removing candlesticks? Has God left? Is it Ichabod all over again? Are we spiritually backslidden?

If I am backslidden, I still yet have a zeal for God's house, and for his glory. This is why I ask questions and promote thinking on the subject. Far too many of my fellow believers are content with a low level of spirituality, not expecting nor desiring an improvement, never praying for the revival fires, for a return of God to his temple, even though they know Jesus hates lukewarmness.

And I speak also to myself in all of this.

Well you'll have to take that up with your fellow American posters who keep me informed about the sad state of the church over there, and that some of them to attend a decent church would have to spend most of the Lord's Day travelling.
Dispies claim that in the very last days there will be a general falling away of the church as it nears the end of the church age before the millennium. I guess they are happy to see it.
However, according to the word, we are given everything we need for a spiritual life, the power of the Holy Ghost is unchanged (because he is God), therefore a need for revival is an admission that we as the church are fallen down somewhere, and need to repent.
I do know that God has said in the past that his people were more concerned with their own houses than with HIS house, and that they needed to repent of this. I don't see any harm in pointing that out. Especially as some may think about it and turn around back to God.
We have a lot of people over here condemning America,but can't seem to get any of them to leave.America and Americans would do well to first return to God and second show the door to all the critics and those who hate America but can't seem to find it within themselves to go home.

Well Strat, I am a realist. I know they are rare in the churches, but I am one, and I tend to call a spade a spade.

You think that the churches are doing fine, very spiritual, obeying God, worshipping him in spirit and in truth, doing his will, following Christ, preaching truth, preaching against sin, revealing to the lost the fierce wrath of God against sin?

And all this time I've been reading posts saying that God's judgment is on America, especially the church.

Revival needed?

Why?

Because Strat is living in a dream world of make believe that "all is well".

I wonder how many "believers" are going on expensive cruises this summer, or a two week visit to the holy land, when the poor pastor has to mow his own lawn to save costs. Or the mission has to return home for lack of funds.
In the old days, believers were so spiritual that faith ministries were fully supported by self-denying Christians, because they regarded mission as a priority.
How did you think missionaries ate, Strat?

The "poor" in America live better than any poor people on earth,the majority of "lost" in America are so because of their love for their sin and the fact that the consequences of their sin has been moderated by the welfare state,if you can live bad and live good as well there is no reason to change....perhaps you are talking about your own country and your own people.
It matters nothing where in the world you live, a Christian is a purchase of God and he gives up all things when he accepts Christ as Lord and Saviour. No matter how hard he works, all proceeds belong to God, who makes us stewards of his wealth. If we be not joyfully willing to give all that we can to the work of God around the world, as he profits us, then it is a sure sign that our heart is still very much in the world, very similar to Lot's wife and the rich young man who turned away from Jesus having had applied the spiritual thermometer to his attitude. And many there be which are such, having loved this present world, with its middle class, three car, three children, three TV's, three life insurance policies, suburban sprawl house, second home in the lakes, etc. etc. etc.

Christianity is a bit more radical than that.
