Apologetics has it's place in providing answers to the inquiring mind . However, the idea of a mass exodus of young people probably doesn't have anything to do with creation or evolution. If a young person is in a authentic christian home, where the gospel is lived and taught , there may come at time of being a prodigal for whatever rebellion or sin has taken hold. However, if the young person is truly saved, then, in God's mercy, they'll return. But, if your child leaves without Christ, pray they respond to God's call. Be holy for he is holy, is not a popular or entertaining call for the weak of mind, heart or soul, but only for those who are His. Good night. .
Ken Ham is a creation apologists. He is trying to gather the imaginations of Christian adults and children. There is a creationist paleontologist in the west Texas town of Crosbyton,tx. He has many artifacts, partial dinosaur skeletons, a fascinating museum. I asked about his view of the 3 million year age of dinosaurs. He said, bone marrow doesn't last 3 million years. And in the dig sites in Wyoming , the bones are found to have marrow. He's a young earth kind of guy.
Kevin Deyoung has a very good article on 40 questions to ask Christians who wave the rainbow flag. Mainline denominations who are either Calvinists or Arminian in their theology have set aside their faith and decided that their kingdom is here on earth and there is neither judgement, and hell is only a place God does not abode and heaven is a state of mind. Their heresy is appalling. I've grown weary of the fancination our country has for a sex sin that will shorten your life and send your too hell. We are not fighters, and the debate team could never protect your son or daughter from rape , murder or hell.
I've seen the CSA battle flag used in museums, on civil war battle field in the south and in the west. But, the use or for that matter misuse is as old as Jim Crow and the end of segregation. Racist use it to make a point for what the civil war was about. One side want to retain the economic benefit of slavery and the union, wanted to end the practice for the nation as a whole. I do not believe Abraham Lincoln or his generals understood that the United States was not united given the industrial might of the north and the agrarian south. For the Soutth'sc part, the plantation system was not the norm for all. However, being left alone was, and this, to stop this rebellion ,Lincoln sent troops to end the rebellion. 750,000 deaths occurred in 4 years , this was an enormous cost. The south did not recover until perhaps after the civil rights act of 1965. This flag represents rebellion as people are feeling encroached upon by big government , it's history has too much blood for a proper perspective.
Well, most likely, Mr. Trump has been surrounded by people who say," Yes, Mr.Trump". But, rich or poor, unless your dependent upon God, humbled by his sacrifice for your sinfulness, you'll not see the need for the gospel in your life. It truly is amazing on who hears the effective call of God and how you must become a little child. The juvenilzatuin of American Christianity knows no bounds. We've been in this state since youth ministers and youth groups we're introduced to the American church after ww2. Norman Vicente Peale , the father of name it claim it!
If I'm not mistaken, Gladstone is the health and retirement resource for ministers and their families of a baptist persuasion. I do not see how Hobby Lobby can win and this, a health and retirement fund for pastors cannot. Evil knows no bounds in the heart of Obama care. When a nation has a deficit of 18 trillion dollars, possibly double that in real debt, you become tyrannical. " you, you didn't build that"-BHO
The next battle will be publishing hate speech in the biblical context of translation. I don't think this bodes well for copy written bible translators. The only translation that will be exempt is the public domain of the AV. However, I can see the day that having a bible is a terrorist act. At that I say, read on!
This is minor , considering the implications that homosexuality will be regarded as a soon to be as an evolved people group. With all the privileges accustomed to other minorities, they will get preferential treatment over African Americans, Hispanics , American Indians, etc. You cannot choose your skin color, and your ethinicity has nothing to do with your proclivities.
I had a prof in college, he was big on evolution, mocked Christians, etc. by now you should know the drill, make fun of creation science. But, his teaching assistants were young earth creationists. We asked how is this so, the TA said, prof can only get research money with evolutionary viewpoint. But he and most know there is no possible way for an old world ape to be transformed to what we know as man. "Made as much sense as a junk yard too sit idle for 2 million years till a jet airliner up and rolls out the gate."
Ok so no interst loans as part of Sharia law for businesses. Now, the idiot mayor won't keep pay day loan companies from doing preditorial business practices. He won't quite understand when an entire nieghborhood is bought without interest and everyone who isn't Muslim is either bought out or chased out. The practice of Sharia business practice is very much like the business practices of nazi businesses during the war. Banks gave preferential treatment to nazi party members and shut the doors to everyone eles. Fly over country isn't a bad place to live after all.
What the Islamists immigrants need is their own spokesperson who makes comments and distracts the general public that this was a case of workplace violence, or a crime not unlike a routine Chicago shooting. That way, we'll overlook his religion as motivation for violence and assume he or she just felt it necessary to shoot someone in a uniform. Sound familiar?
Mike, Your last statement is the most hopeful. We're(I'm) overwhelmed with the overall negativity, doom and gloom and perhaps the progressive dispensational view could come along with a covenantal view in agreement , as a matter of not allowing the minors become the major. We've got to be learn to love each other for his brides sake.
1517, Yes, I understand, but, read the posts, and determine if the tone sets into motion a condensing attitude that does not teach but instead ridicules. If you teach you gain a brother, it's like Paul said about eating meat before a weaker brother, what good does it do to allow your pride to not be respectful of others .
So, from this article view, the pre-tribulation view is on the outs, and folks who have agreed , piled on to wish pretribers be persecuted more harshly and called stupid and illiterate. I'm just not seeing the love here . SA, was the plan for this article to stop discussion and for that matter to cause a people of faith who hold too a futurists viewpoint of eschatology to be driven from a forum.
I think if we we're is investigate this industry, we'd understand why Nazi propaganda minister Herman Goebbels awarded Margret Sanger a Nazi medal for science and social order. Her own statements on abortion is to rid society of "all these negro children, running about, unwanted or unsupervised".
Thank you Perry from Alabama, I tried to repost about the same response, but for some reason could not get my post to take. My issue is that I think in matters of estachology, there are differing streams, and in our present crisis , it is best that brothers and sisters hold to an knowing God as our sustinance. As the the pre-mil , pre-trib viewpoint, yes it is on the outs, by design. In 2007-2008, an Obama campaign advisor on middle eastern affairs stated, that an Obama adminstration's would end the pre-mil foreign policy of the US , that had been established in 1948. Take that off their bucket list, mission accomplished.
Yes s c, I looked up the lyrics and I tend to categorize these songs as _____, is my boyfriend songs. The reason I use this termology, is based on the old hill song song, " Jesus, lover of my soul" , and watching grown men standing for 25 minutes repeating the same stanza is tiresome if not heretical.
The whole access to everything is so horrid. Our minds and souls simply do not need such enticement . If you have children, teach them to work, learn play, develop discipleship and pray as a family. Moderation and purity is a lost art.
