We either believe that the Bible is the Word of God and to be taken literally, or we don't. We cannot pick and choose what we want to believe from it. I know from experience that many church attending young people are believing in the things that they are being taught in government run schools of indoctrination , over the truths that they are being taught in church. Many cannot tell you the Ten Commandments, but they can tell you that they believe in a world that is billions of years old... as they are being taught 5 days a week in school.
My brother, who was a lead gas processor for Sid Richardson until he retired always told me that America doesn't have a gas and oil problem, we have a storage problem. Production is so high that when the reserves are full and production continues 24 hours a day, the surplus has to be burned (cosmic debris!) That's what's happening when you see those West Texas gas plants flaring... oh what a sight!
We made it through thanks to our Heavenly Fathers protection. We were 15 miles from the center of the storm as it passed through and it gave us heavy wind and torrential rains. Lots of uprooted trees and debris, but all are safe and well. It is now calm and good!
1 Timothy 6:6-10 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can‚Äôt take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.
I'm thinking that any church that is 501c3 is a government church. To claim tax exempt status gives the gov something that they will eventually use against you. Besides, our chaity is to be done in secret and tithing isn't commanded in the New Testament... only cheerful giving. To give and then use it as a tax write off really isn't cheerful giving. If someone knows how much you are giving (i.e church secretary) then you have received your reward.
‚ÄúTherefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee. Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?‚ÄĚ ‚Ä≠‚Ä≠Jeremiah‚Ä¨ ‚Ä≠7:16-17‚Ä¨ ‚Ä≠KJV‚Ä¨‚Ä¨
I feel that we are at that place with God in this country. The wickedness was so bad that God even told Jeremiah to not even pray for them because He would not listen. I'm just saying...
We are getting closer to the time when rhe beast will make war with the saints. Yes, if we are alive when God's appointed time is at hand, we will see and experience the persecution that Jesus clearly stated we would endure. True Bible readers know and understand it.
Windows 10 is really a good operating system. The absolute best part is that it is a free upgrade... The first for Microsoft as best I can remember. Been on Windows since the beginning. Worked on a few Macs, but for my HD video editing and After Effects, Windows does the job just fine and fast. No problems on Windows 10. It's a tool like my weed trimmer, and all tools eventually need upgrading.
Has nothing to do with my walk with Jesus... I'll someday leave it all behind and salvation always trumps technology.
Someone here said this, and it's a true statement; So put away (or should I say throw away)your Taylor Swift CD's and your Harry Potter DVD's and let's get on our knees. It's time to seek the Lord!
People who claim to be Christian are usually the first in line to support the latest disney movie, are walking dead fans and a host of other very demonic entertainment. They support cable tv, nfl, nba, nbc, cbs, abc and fox, facebook and twitter and on and on and on.
No one fears the one true God. Church has become social networks with coffee bars and paid entertainers. Huge budgets that have turned ice cold Christian fakes into frosted flakes.
I'm going to say that in the USA, it will be easy for the government to dictate their 501c3 churches. They have made a deal with the devil and a little research is all you have to do to prove it. I'm just saying...
But for some (single moms comes to mind but other examples could be given), homeschooling is not an option that they have available. I would be careful with the statement as some are not blessed like you to be able to home school, that does not mean they are not a true Christian.
That is where the church has dropped the ball. Single mom's should be able to drop their children off at churches that should be teaching if the parent cannot. If a church can afford high staff salaries and elaborate entertainment, then they should be able to handle the teaching of some children while the parent has to work. If you attend a babel building that has the resources, then stand up for the education of the children or find a different babel building that will.
I am going to side with Voddie Baucham on this one. True Christians should not be sending their children to government schools. They steal the money from us to keep these things going and they have never been Christian. Training children is the Biblical responsibility of us as God fearing parents. We homeschool and will continue to do so because we are told to do so by the Word of God. Radical in this culture I know, but thats the way it is. If you can't say amen then you ought to say ouch! Government school... We don't want to mend it, we want to end it.
Any church that has signed on with the government as a 501c3 church is a church of the state and has removed Christ as the head of that church. Seriously look this up and read what they have agreed to by signing on the dotted line.
