Great Sermon! I think you guy's are a bit harsh and judgemental. I don't see the relevance in bringing up percentages as far as who has the most abortions. Sure abortion is wrong and sinful but if your going to do that let's talk about a couple of other percentages. Like who has the highest percentage of killing babies outside of the womb. You can start with Susan Smith, and Andrea Yates. While you are digging up numbers which Race of people have performed the most serial killings. Don't worry I won't make you include all the Indians and Black slaves that were killed and lynched. It's pretty interesting that your religion only focuses on certain sins when it's conveniant for you to get your opinion out. If you'll are going to discuss things you need to do it across the board fair and balanced. Thanks
Great Sermon! I loved your conversation concerning this broadcast. Growing up we would have called what he put , ,we'd say themthere aare fighting words".As a born again Christian, I have to say out of the mouth the heart speaks. If I went to my church this Sunday and saw that written. ...I'd question my pastor's faith. Thank you for your time. In Jesus name those words do not glorify our Father in heaven
my $.02 I am black and I say ignore this church sign. The pastor is irrational and not in touch with reality. No one could convince him of his nonsense. He needs Christ to transform his mind. This pastor is unstable. Let's just pray for him and the sheeple in his congregation. I would bet all the tea in China that the gospel is not preached. there.
Not Sermon! Seeing as he was protecting his community, and that he could have been killed, he did a wise thing by using his weapon to defend himself. Also, he was watching out for his neighborhood. He was protecting others from robbery. Did you not see the robber who broke into the home and used his fists to 4 times beat the mother in the child's presence? Zimmerman was helping the neighborhood, not just himself. He called the police. Trayvon was beating other people from time to time. Zimmerman was biblical to protect his neighborhood ! There is a lot of biblical teaching on protecting the innocent.
Re: Comments @tina: I think Jesus' instruction to the disciples to carry a sword was a general directive for protection in contrast to His instructions in Luke 6 to take nothing along with them. Surely He does not advocate His disciples to be aggressive or offensive with their weapons since He rebukes Peter soon after this because of his use of a sword in "self-defense" in the garden. It is the disciples who misunderstand that conversation leading Jesus to say that it is enough because of their lack of understanding. We see Paul assaulted frequently in Acts and not once is it recorded that he fights anyone.
@kasey: Totally agree, and God is sovereign in life and death, however, the discussion was Zimmerman's choice to employ the firearm, which was a possibility after his poor decision making. There must be some human responsibility as well.
@David: I don't know that we can answer that question for sure since we were not there to see what truly happened. However, I think our opinion is the use of a firearm should be a last resort, and while Zimmerman was physically assaulted, it does not seem that his injuries were life threatening. I believe our intent was not to address justification specifically; instead, we should consider every option before resorting to deadly force.
Great Sermon! God can help Zimmerman.! Who obviously made a big mistake ..He will if Zimerman cries out for help, mercy and restoration.Let us pray for him and let us pray that more people will seek an come to Christ because of this tragedy.
Not Guilty? I am having a hard time understanding the gun culture in America.Many precious lives have been unnecessarily taken away because of negligent,irresponsible and hasty gun owners.My heart is breaking.It just doesnt seem right.
News in Focus Trevor Hanmack is a host of the News in Focus Program, hence the fact he reports on the news - and the Pope is often in the news. It is important to understand what the Catholics believe in order to be able to have an intelligent conversation with them if we want to witness to them.
Great Talk Even for those of us who married and had kids at a relatively young age, this discussion is relevant and encouraging to us who sometimes might have second guessed ourselves in the midst of our struggles. After 11 yrs of marriage, three kids, and a baby in heaven, I have come to find my fulfillment in God and in my place in the home raising my children, and have found such satisfaction and contentment in that.
Great Sermon! Someone said "Purgatory is that time when every unrepented sin (dung in Luther's illustration) is burned off -- so that you are actually made perfect -- before seeing God face to face."
Someone is sadly mistaken, for he thinks the sacrifice of Christ insufficient, and "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" a mere partial gift, with alleged remaining sins needful of further purging.
Response to 'Good Bible Study' ...and yet...not a single verse of Scripture in your response to support Purgatory.
So I trust you are just informing the reader of its concept and not that you personally adhere to that fallacy.
Great Sermon! When you have the keys of the kingdom, as Pope Francis does, then offering an indulgence is to be expected. An indulgence is merely the declaration that one has fewer days in Purgatory because of repentance, faith and obedience. And why is Purgatory even required? Because you can't just walk into heaven as a snow-covered dunghill (as Luther describes it). Rather, "Be ye perfect!" the Scriptures warn. Purgatory is that time when every unrepented sin (dung in Luther's illustration) is burned off -- so that you are actually made perfect -- before seeing God face to face.
i agree but... All your points are correct. But USA Today didnlt use the words "how can we kill babies". You actually expressed surprise they used those words but they didn't. Not unless they just changed it because I read the article and did a word search and didn't find it.
