No The Pope is lost. He is an unbeliever. Sir, you ask for comments so I share. I am hesitant since you are an Elder and I do not want to give the appearance of rebuking an Elder. I think that if the Pope makes a statement and we then proclaim it and make application to our lives than we are affirming him to be the Vicar of Christ when he is not. The Pope does not even see that he was speaking of himself. A pagan claiming to be a Christian. Our society wants to know what the Pope thinks and says. Who cares? He is an Antichrist. He is to be exposed and ignored. Satan can transform himself into an angel of light and speak truth. We see that when he tempted Christ in the wilderness. Christ did not dialogue with him and tell him he was speaking truth, He rebuked him exposing his use of scripture inappropriately and for his own purposes. When the Pope speaks I shall not look to redeem what he says and apply it to my life. It dishonors Christ, the sufficiency of scripture, and dishonors all those who lost their lives for not regarding the papacy. Thank you kindly.
CJW I disagree Obama was stating that he did not want the high cost of child care being the reason mothers choose to stay at home. Of course Obama has his priorities wrong but this was an attack on the high cost of child care NOT stay at home moms.
Of course moms belong at home with their little ones. Stay at home moms have the most important job in the nation. On that we agree.
Great Sermon! If any of u get the chance listen to at sermon called " The Gap in Mark Five" preached by, James Knox. The parallels of this chapter in mark, us today and, the history of Isreal will blow ur mind. Never seen it presented the way he does and it's amazing the many other times in the bible this happens. I really enjoyed the comparisons in both of these messages. Thanks
Another sign of cultural shift... I understand why it may appear that this quote was taken out of context.
But let us examine the context.
He was talking about making sure that daycare was available and affordable to all - so mothers could be part of the workforce.
He was constrasting staying at home to raise your kids (presumably, when they are young) because you can't "afford to work" (childcare costs are so high that it is not worth it).
It IS an attack on the choice of staying at home with your children, because it is presumed that staying home and raising your babies and young children is not important work and worth the loss in education/pay that would have resulted in staying in the workforce during those years.
Loving, nurturing care by parents is CRUCIAL in the proper physical, emotional, and spiritual development in our children.
No paycheck can be worth more than that.
Great Sermon! Pastor Seam, " thank you" for your outstanding lesson and message on Baptist beliefs. A lot has happen in three yrs concerning beliefts . It seems the world is caving in to theprogressive's. Thanking you for standing firm. Your sister I'm Christ??
He is probably my favorite reformer. I would love to see a podcast on his contribution to education. I've read that there wasn't a school in Germany that didn't have a teacher influenced by him and that he was considered the "Schoolmaster of Germany." Dr. Valica at Pensacola Christian had some excellent information on him in her dissertation since she did mostly firsthand research in Germany, if you are looking for more information in English.
Great Sermon! For me the Bible answers 3 of the most important questions 1. Who am I? A child of the Living God. 2. Why am I here? To glorified God.
3. Where am I going? Heaven and Glory.
All I need to know is God is sovereign and Rom 8:28.
The Bible is very clear.
Great Sermon! General info: Although both played major league baseball and are close in age, and even had similar career stats, Billy Bean the baseball player and Billy Beane the general manager are two different people.... Easily confused!
Great Sermon! The KJV translators were merely admonishing the student to verify for themselves that their work was precise, complete and correct. Any other interpretation is entirely unhistorical and illogical.In Augustineâ€™s day there was no final translation. In the King James Bible translatorsâ€™ day, there was the making of one, so that the sense could be found out, that is, by them in making it, and by us afterward. The translators had to consult many former works. In doing so, they were gathering out and coming to the conclusion of one correct sense as given in English. They were not in any way arguing for the multiplying of English translations, but the opposite.

Great Sermon! Thy word is truth. .....
Brother, if the kjv is all you need than by all means. ... use it. I pray it blesses you
To be honest, the argument for kjv only is so absurd that it's not even worth arguing about.
