Passerby I tend to agree with you The local church has a community it is located in and ought to be a contributing part to the well being of the people who are our neighbors
that also frees us to have a voice, if we choose to use it, (to be salt and light) to have input in what our local government does and doesn't do, what it spends money on or doesn't Something Imho far better than isolation
Seriously now since I have to think a few genuinely sincere Roman Catholics visit SermonAudio who haven't read the volumes of exchanges between JY and those who genuinely know new birth in Christ the following is something I suspect will break your hearts (read the Bible the 2nd of the 10 Commandments condemns idolatry) and hopefully work in you a desire to know the Truth of Christ which is found in the Bible, God's own holy written word no ill will meant to you at all, just heartbreak over JY
For $57.82 you can get for yourself a baby jesus of prague just like John Yurich's Roman Catholics worship, when they are not worshipping their imagination of his mama, you can get a statue of their mary holding baby jesus for only $1109.88
in the fantasy world of Roman Catholicism it pays to worship, or is it that you have to pay to worship
John Yurich USA wrote: Catholics are not unbelievers as they worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God. An unbeliever does not worship Jesus as God. And what it states in 2 Cor 6:17 is not required for salvation as according to the Bible the only requirement for salvation is to trust in Jesus alone for salvation.
Calvary Max wrote: According to the Bible, if the Gays come into your shop and demand you bake them a cake, Bake them a cake and cupcakes.
Calvary Max Let me plead with you to think deeper Are they simply demanding a cake? Or that the baker bow in worship to their perversion, and to promote and further their perversion in cake and icing?
In which case the matter is way different from a robber who comes into a deli and demands a sandwitch to much more like a robber comes into a deli and gives those working there guns to hold at the heads of the customers to molest and rob them
2 Chron 19:2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.
and another consideration would Imho be the Hebrew midwives who refused to obey Pharoah's order to murder Jewish baby boys in Moses day
and near to our own times, seems like many Christians refused to cooperate in turning in Jews to the Nazi authorities
First, Imho O'Reilly is dead wrong. Second, assuming he has some knowledge of history he ought to know how cowardice and appeasement of Adolf Hitler contributed to WWII (Churchill's opinion was that WWII was entirely preventable if nations had stood up to him before war broke out, I tend to agree) and cowardice and appeasement will only contribute to increased Islamofacism (aka Shariah imposed on others against their will and common sense)
Imho we need to be thoroughly careful here lest we stab in the back those standing up against Islamic Fascism. Something we saw in the Christian community when Operation Rescue blockaded doors to Abortion Clinics and certain prominent religious celebrities were not contend to accept that was the choice of expression by the protestors but took sides with the abortionists to put a stop to their protests, when they could have at least supported them in much prayer and a simple statement like, "I won't do that myself but they are right abortion is murder"
Leading to things were today a local crisis pregnancy center doesn't want picketers at the local clinic to tell the "customers" that it is murder to abort their babies because to them that's too offensive
John Yurich USA wrote: Stupid feminists. Feminists are a menace to society with their insanity.
Part wrong and part right
First feminists (or feminazi if you perfer) are not "stupid" but often highly intelligent educated sophisticated cunning skilled deceivers and manipulators thoroughly committed to their "political agenda"
(the second) to make themselves "gods" with a hellish mentality the end justifies the means, even if it is the sacrifice of their own babies in abortion to worship themselves as "gods"
The title of the news article only touches what is really going on, let me repeat Imho they really don't want to be "men" but "gods" and God help those who refuse to bow to them in worship, to them a hate crime deserving death
PP wrote: Jim, Stop repeating these false ideas of State-worship that you continually spout. Progressive taxation is from Karl Marx. State or Caesar is not god. You are preaching the violation of the first 3 laws of the decalogue. Obey God not men. It is such thinking that has made the Church in the US and the West irrelevant and weak. The Magna Carta would never had been written if Him and Rugh had their way, which means no Reformation, no bill of rights, no USA, no Constitution. Man shall live hy God's Law, theonomy, or live under tyranny. Stop preaching slavery to Caesar. You are free in Christ. God bless.
PP I appreciate your post. And if memory serves me the very unbiblical progressive tax is indeed from Karl Marx
It might be safe to say Tyrannts hate a prosperous middle class (the Joe the Plumbers that Obama et all would plunder to enrich the voters on their welfare rolls) because a prosperous middle class doesn't need government dictatorship and has the means to oppose it (finances to support and arm a local militia and sherrif's department, finances to fund a free, uncontrolled by government able to expose its lies and propaganda AND ALSO support preachers and churches that stand for the Truth of Christ!)
I don't know, someone who has confused you with SteveR?
So let me say this your moniker is so close to SteveR (I confused the two of you in the past) that if your comments were different than our uninvited pro-ecumenical Roman Catholic propagandist and anti-born again Baptist-type believers(?) (as he seems to post that way) ... whatever he is
please do post them again as an outrageous bias against Christians is something that wears heavily upon genuine Christians in the time we are living in

An in this case the "rabid dog" is the homosexual movement _ Which desperately needs to hear the Truth of where they stand with God and why AND what they must do now to be saved from their sins and the punishment all sin deserves, the eternal hell
Personally knowing Ray Comfort despite whatever his imperfections may be has put out an excellent movie in "180" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y2KsU_dhwI I am looking forward to checking out his soon to be out movie, "Audacity" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rj-ZuDm3m6o
And beyond an movie any man might produce, I thank God for the title, "Audacity" as Imho every born again child of God needs a humble holy audicity in our faith, in the whole armour of God that we might be wise as serpents and harmless as doves, and stand joyfully as soul winners, men and women God uses to save evern our rabid enemies (articlehttp://www.spurgeon.org/misc/soulwinr.htm by C.H. Spurgeon)
Sorry, these things touch the depth of my heart, making me weep over the sorry state of today's Christainity, my own included, and the terrible wages that awaits unrepentant and unbelieving sinners in the day of judgment

Penny, I have no idea of who is influencing you to post the things you do but hope that whoever it is that you would cease allowing them to dimish your faith in the Almighty Sovereign Sufficiency of the God of ALL Grace.
Are sleeping lukewarm churches a terrible heartbreaking matter, sure they are but don't let the devil deceive you into thinking your salvation, and those who you love and care about are dependant on a thoroughly weak humanity, but on God who is mighty and willing to save, Yes! Even to bring a mighty GOSPEL Revival
1517 wrote: I guess the true Prophet,Elijah, should not have mocked the Baal priests neither. Further, maybe GOD shouldn't have mocked all idol worship when he explained how the same wood used for fire and cooking food is the same to carve up an idol. Graham would have Christians "stand up!" for religious freedom, but not for God's glory. Lastly, Muslim "faith" is not faith at all. I mock that religion without hesitation.
1517 I thought of Elijah and Pam Geller when I read the headline this morning.
While I might not necessarily use (abuse) the word "mock" in our witness to Muslims neither do I believe we bow down in cowardice to them, terrified in telling things as they are. Imho Pam Geller is making a correct observation the issue with Islam and Shariah law is one in which we must respectfully (even with appropriate political humor/satire) insist on the freedom of speech for non- Muslims, as in this the preaching/publishing of the Gospel is at stake, lest appeasement motivate or excuse them into insane violence, and we cowardly shut the door on our own witness, excusing ourselves that we are just trying to be respectful
And btw Catholics (Mariolatrers beloved by SteveR) and Muslims adore the same God CCC 841

Strong emotional words and the things you mention are quite evil
So what do you do with "feminized" women who begrudge their husbands the physical marital initamcy that a man can thoroughly thank God for because after all God chose to make him a man not some kind of effeminate eunuch?
Imho there has been an ongoing castration of men (manhood) in evangelical churches, not because the men there were sexual monsters but because our modern churches have been bewitched with a "feminized" perversion of Biblical Christianity and men who stand for the Truth of Christ aren't welcome, because they (the Truth) offends the world a whorish church courts, appeases and kisses up to
A good (not perfect) read in this is Eric Ludy's book the Bravehearted Gospel Hope you all read it and are repentantly blessed by it
For one try telling the Donatists, Waldenses, and all the Baptist-type believers who refused hereitcal infant baptismal regeneration and all those slaughtered in the inquistion how the RCC stood up for their rights - Yah
For "two" as to speaking up for the rights of Muslims? Are you making somekind of sick joke What rights would that be? Killing Jewish people and stealing their land? Somekind of right to lie to people that they are a religion of peace? Scripture teaches us to think clearly, 'Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD so as to bring wrath on yourself from the LORD?' Trying to hide your antichristian prejudice in maligning Pamela Gellar?
We who are genuinely born again of the Holy Spirit need to guard our minds from the distraction of the servants of Satan. The issue is one that is greatly related to freedom of speach and freedom of conscience, two things the enemies of God seem to be in agreement to suppress, criminalize and persecute because they are so interrelated to preaching the true gospel of Christ (not Rome's false one ) and being faithful to Jesus
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly.
Neither pro-Roman Catholic Nor politically correct cowards will be able to give us Biblical Factual Wisdom in what to think and what God's will is for us in all this (even though they may genuinely notice things aren't right)
Pam Geller was asked who is the enemy to free speech, for one historically the RCC, (remember they adore the same god as Muslims CCC 841) who sought to deny the Bible from everday people, demanding that ultimately all men acknowledge the Papacy is certainly one (if you don't realize this ask Wycliffe, Huss and Tyndale)
And in more "practical" terms our own government corrupted with the influences of dishonesty, lying, stealing, double standards for itself and its friends, abuse and disregard for our Constitution, and history, atheism, sexual immorality, especially, exploitation of racial prejudices, the welfare state, the abomination of homosexuality, "Evolution" and abortion (I hate to us the word) "rights",
Especially their "allies" of a Biblically illiterate, cowardly and man pleasing clergy have all contributed to a suppression (out right criminalization in some cases) of free speech, the defense of those saying the Truth when it is offensive to evil
