not good. For anyone to say, we might as well have a communist government to spread the rich man's wealth (if they're not willing to give 30-40% of their income away), is a communist them-self, and they don't understand what Jesus or his apostles/disciples spoke on the matter. Very sad indeed.
John Knox On Resistance To Tyranny, Ungodly Gov. Of course, John Knox was among the clearest on this point.
"No manifest idolater, nor notorious transgressor of God's holy precepts, ought to be promoted to any public regiment [i.e. governmentâ€”GLP], honour, or dignity, in any realm, province, or city that has subjected itself to his blessed evangel". - John Knox, from "Summary of the Proposed Second Blast of the Trumpet" (1558), as cited in Greg Price, Biblical Civil Government Versus The Beast; and The Basis for Civil Resistance (free online book at http://ow.ly/l9G2i or http://www.swrb.com/newslett/FREEBOOK/GPrice.htm).
Rutherford On Resistance To Tyranny, Ungodly Gov. One of the Scottish Commissioners to the Westminster Assembly (and one of the best theologians, by God's grace, in the history of the Church), Samuel Rutherford, also wrote,
"I lay down this maxime of Divinitie; Tyranny being a worke of Sathan, is not from God, because sinne either habituall or actuall, is not from God; the power that is, must be from God; the Magistrate as Magistrate, is good, in nature of office, and the intrinsecall end of his office, Rom. 13:4. for he is the Minister of God for thy good; and therefore a power ethicall, politick, or morall, to oppresse, is not from God, and is not a power, but a licentious deviation of a power, and is no more from God, but from sinfull nature, and the old serpent, then a license to sinne." - Samuel Rutherford, Lex, Rex, or the Law and the Prince (1644)
John Calvin On Resistance To Tyranny, Ungodly Gov. "One factor behind this rising tension was that Huguenot political rhetoric had required a decidedly anti-royalist tone during the second and third civil wars. While Calvinâ€™s Institution of the Christian Religion seemed to suggest that private citizens owed their obedience even to an ungodly king -- only lesser magistrates could legally oppose the authority of a wicked king -- his biblical commentaries published late in his life offered more intriguing possibilities. In his Readings on the Prophet Daniel first published in 1561, Calvin argued that when Daniel refused to obey King Darius, â€˜he committed no sinâ€™, since whenever rulers disobeyed God, â€˜they automatically abdicate their worldly powerâ€™. Calvin went even further in his Sermons on the Last Eight Chapters of the Book of Daniel published posthumously in 1565. Describing the same biblical incident, Calvin argued that when Kings defy God, â€˜they are no longer worthy to be counted as princesâ€¦ [And] when they raise themselves up against Godâ€¦ it is necessary that they should in turn be laid lowâ€™."

Great Sermon! Im hearing boys went to church because his MOTHER TOOK HIM. Steve Harvey The comedian,his mom was always at the church and took him. i NEVER HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT HIS FATHER being at church and leading him..when that happens, you get too many female pastors and it becomes out of order
Great Sermon! We better break this crazy pattern!! I just read Malachi 4:6..GOD said the fathers need to get back to the children and the children, father or else he would STRIKE THE EARTH WITH A CURSE.. are these weather patterns of tornados in TX and storms like Sandy the result?!
Hey, i have an 18 yo daughter who i want to see married to a mature young man who not only a Christian BUT A GOOD PROVIDER. Shes still a virgin, thank GOD and she goes to church at bible study and prayer twice a week on top of sunday.
Could it be possible as well, is that women wear the pants in the family, and dresses are looked on as the plague by young ladies? many women are wearing black, white, and browns for the spring and summer, not all...but the MEN ARE WEARING THE BRIGHT COLORS.. its WEIRD. something as simple as dresswear could make the difference. I remember the men in the early 70s getting scared that women were wearing pantsuites rather than dresses, and said by 40 years, men would be irrelevant. They in a way were prophetic...sigh. I wish they had 'shepherd centers in CA'

Great Sermon! As a adult myself dealing / coming to to terms with my own gender issues, I truly do feel the pain transgender people face in life,
I take comfort in the bible's message of love, as Christians we must love each other, showing kindness to all people, this includes transgender people,
In the end God Almighty is the finale judge of all people including transgender people.
Great Sermon! 'Moroni' visited Muhammad as well:
Islam is Mormonism East, Mormonism is Islam west, sort of. Mormons are polytheistic, while Islam isnt
Mormons have a Christian veneer while Islam doesnt--even some christians get fooled by the LDS. They tend to do more for people than christians since they have more money by the forced tithe
Both religions are actually anti black africans, and promoted slavery of such. while Moses did actually have a black wife and father in law
Great Sermon! ooops spoke too soon!!
its amazing that kjv only pastor is pro homosexual marriage!! this is scary, but that pastor who is 30 years old is NOT THAT WAY!! I know he's fighting upstream as you guys are, pray for Pastor Steven Anderson!!
He even believes in soulwinning door to door!! its crazy seeing the church falling down on everything!!
Great Sermon! Your sons is RIGHT!! this happens when the family is destroyed--and homosexuality will not stop, pedophilia may be next....its the MEN who are responsible to GOD HIMSELF.. physically it only takes 30-40 seconds to become a father, and 18+ years to become a mother. Kids are ALWAYS with mom: and when dad isnt there, the kids can be confused sexually. Even in the old days, there were enough marriages to show kids how to be. Boys will become men and girls will become women. When women allow lots of men to live with them WITHOUT MARRIAGE, kids can and WILL become confused sexually.
Maybe, since the weather and the earth is having trouble, COULD IT BE FROM BROKEN HOMES!? it reminds me of the last verse in the old testament Malachi 4:6--striking the EARTH WITH A CURSE
iTS not all bad: there is pastor in Tempe AZ who is only 30 years old and completely OLD FASHIONED KJV only, and everything that goes with it..Pastor Steven Anderson. He is also on youtube as sanderson1611
Great Sermon! So good to hear the truth being spoken about what is actually happening and had happened in Southern Africa, the betrayal of which had positioned China in control of Southern African mineral wealth and underwritten by that; as an emerging global Megapower that will eclipse the former might of the now defunct USA, UK and the EU.
The behind the scenes workings of the forces of darkness associated with these developments is something modern leaders aren't aware of, cannot understand and will never be able to counter.
And it is not even as if they will be spared the culmination of these events at Armageddon because by that time they will have been usurped by parasitic radical fundamentalist sub-cultures that would have changed forever everything that once defined them as free nations and that will be a worse state to be in domestically than any foreign confrontation with the Sino Soviet Islamic alliance that will rise out of the might of China
Great Sermon! Not "Rhino" but RINO (Republican In Name Only). RINOs are usually a few years or, in this case, months behind their evolving Democrat counterparts. If you want Democrat-lite, vote Republican. If you want the real McCoy vote Democrat.
Great Sermon! Before this is all over, which will be the last state standing? 49 will eventually succumb to this communicable economic and infertility death spiral. This single state is where the 2nd Mayflower is ultimately heading. Wouldn't recommend a real estate investment in any of the other 49 failing or soon-to-be failing states. And since Washington D.C. is the only recipient of positive cash flow, perhaps this provides a clue which direction to move, invest and sink down really deep roots.
