This woman intetuped those sweet Muslims prayers...They were probably praying that isis would come to America and heads would begin to roll. That shria law would be instituted as law of the land. I don't think that what the woman did was particularly offensive, she thought that the national cathedral is a house of worshipn but its not. Franklin Graham spoke out against the practice of christians holding ecumenical services of other faith groups in churches. The next time there is an event at the national cathedral for a national calamity will Mr Graham attend or speak?
"I permit a woman not to teach" is completly out of context with what this woman did ( she did not teach). She interupted those poor muslims prayers that they pray to allah to have us all beheaded. They prayed for short stubby dull knives. This woman asked questions and in doing so questioned the athuority of the anglican church. Is allah equal to Jahova. If he is than all this kumbyyahing is perfectly fine. If he is not the same as allah then there is literally hell to pay. The scriptures say that allah is a cheep imitation (real cheep)..
Yes churches will be more effective witnesses by embracing evolution.... yeah right .... Paul our beloved Apostle told the circumsision group that he wishes that they would go the whole way and emasclate them selves... My wish is if the thestic evolution group would take a que form Paul. Have they seen the people diserting the church in droves for the most part it's the secular humanism that the American brand of theraputic self help dieism that they are peddling. Evolution is already in the church and it Is a terrible witness. It says Gods word is unreliable... enough is enough. Go a head boys cut em' off.
The Lord is raising up Islam and isis for His purpose. He's raised up nations more wicked to rain down judgment on the church in the past. We in our churches have not been obedient to his holy commandments. The churches run after the doctrine and the commandments of men. We permit adultery murder and open idolitry even with in the house of God. God can change the heart of any magistrate to repell any forces including islam. Many Christians and churches in the middle east prefer to have America butt out of their country. Sadam Hussien had bibles in his schools. What about Barrack Hussein Obama? At the time of the Asseyrian captivity and Babalonian captivity. The Lord told them to go.
I feel like what passes off for the signs and wonders movement is a cheep immatation of anything remotly biblical. The tounges of today are but repititous babbling, lacking biblical interpretation. The barking on the floor, slain in the spirit, where does it end. The puritans called this will worship, we will worship according to our own vain devices and imagininations. We are called to rightly divide the word of truth. All we see today is liberal theology masking in ungodly deceptions. Experience over scripture is the same as the RCC tradition over scripture. Gospel preaching is what the christian church is needing instead we get self help to pull yourselver up by your own boot straps psycho babble. No law or gospel and liberals and Roman Catholics casting out demons by using God' s name as a magic talisman. We need the Gospel not deliverence ministery.
Most of the posts have been off the topic from the article . The article is dealing with the Roman Catholic teenagers dabbling in the occult through entertainment such as movies and tv shows and games.Are these things harmless? The excersist priest thinks differently. My question would in the light of scripture why would parents not protect their children from breaking God's law. Why would they allow thier children to depart for the faith and turn to the extreme form of Idolatry? All forms of Whichcraft is forbidden in the scriptures. They did not get into drug use in the article which in these days are far more pervasive than even church people think.
Can Satan cast out Satan? A house divided against itself cannot stand. The RCC has a long history of denying the Gospel. They reject sola fiede and declairing those condemned for believing in the doctrine of faith alone. If a church gets the gospel wrong, and the¬†gospel is the power of God unto salvation what benefit would there be if one cast out the entire race of demons from the very pits of hell, without the gospel the seven sons of sceva come to mind. In the old testament dabbling in the occult was forbiden for the church member and a capital offense and liable to death by stoning, this was a great sin. In the new testiment Simon the soceror was rebuked and repented for trying to buy the Holy Ghost. When the church blames the devil and does not deal with sin. We are just sweeping out the house only to have seven spirits more wicked then the first come in. The preached word is what scripture says with out a doubt will destroy the power of the devil. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

IMHO the RCC is a synagog of satan. The pope the vicar of God, the one whom sits excathedra and what ever word comes out of his mouth is equal with scriptures is anti christ. They have anathama-ed anyone that believes in justification by faith alone and never recanted( Counsel of Trent). Their doctrine of purgatory is an affront to the finish work of Christ. You would have the ones that cursed the gospel cast out demons. Doess Satan cast out of Satan
My bad, Michael H did not say the thing that I agreed with, some other person did, Josh M thank you for your comment it was beautiful. The part where you said that the signs and wonders were to authithicate the authority of Christ and his Apostles. Lol
The scriptures also tells of Paul requiring the man whom commited adultery with his fathers wife in the Corinthian church to be handed over to satan. That he may kill the flesh. And that he might be brought back into the church by repentance not exorcism.
The Neil T. Anderson and the FTS comment info check out www.rapdinet.com/.../anderson/ht... also check out www.equip.org/.../the bondage breaker. Back in the 90's Mr Anderson and Mr.Craft out of the FTS came to our church and brought the concept of Christians being demon harrassment which I would agree with. However their type of harrassment was not harrassment but demon possession. In my experience with this psycho symmatic manifestations were hurtful and unbiblical. These men had not relics or icons or other such possessions but they did have their vain immaginations. These men had 3 page check lists of casting out generational curses , hexes snares and other such psychobabble Christianeze nonsense. The confusion and suspiscion is not godly fruit. As far as my reference to those casting out demons in Christ's name. The Lord in his Gospel warnings to a apostate church who do the work of God but believe not God or his Christ, even in their good works will not save them. Even their casting out of devil will not save them. As far as believing the end of Mark chapter16 . My personal take is those gifts, manifistations of the spirit were for the church not subject to personal interpretations. Those things have happened in the past, no doubt, the things we see today have littl
The main point of the post is that the Roman Catholic preist are finding more people that are dabbling in the occult. The position that I have stated is good faithful gospel preaching trumps any forces of darkness in Eph 6 Paul tells us to shod our feet with the preperation of the gospel of peace, aswell as to hold up the sheild of faith To stand fast in the truth and righteousness. The history of the Roman Catholic exorcism and the use of icons and relics and other objects to remove the forces of darkness apart from the finnished work of Christ alone is itself idolatry. The church's main function should be the preached word not focusing on the personal experiences of casting demons out of unbelievers. As believers in Christ it should be our desire to know nothing but Christ and him crucified.
Will evangelicals at least admit that they are following The Roman Church calendar when they celebrate Christmas and Easter..Early on in the Massachusettes Bay Colony the magistrate would fine five shillings any such person that celebrated the Christ mass. Did anyone ask Christ if he wanted his birthday put on Dec 25? Or if you are Russian Jan 7th.
When I said " remember the devil " let us not over state his power. Satan on his best day could never equal God. Satan is God's creation. Many in the spiritual warfare camp have the tendency of putting the devil on a equal footing as God. Prime example would be Fuller Theological Seminary , School of World Missions in Pasadena California. Neil T Anderson and Charles Craft are two that come to mind for evangelical excersist that have come out of Fuller that will cast demons out of Christians. The signs and wonder movement will elevate experience above the scriptures. Lord Lord
We must remember that the devil is God's devil. The only time we see demonic in the time of Christ and his Apostle's, we should not see such things in our day. CHRIST has bound the strong man and defeated satan on the cross. The true way we destroy the kingdom of darkness is with good gospel preaching. Let us not take up the midevil superstions that has pleauged the Roman Church. The docterines and commandments of men uses magical incantations and relics and iconagraphy as an attempt to remove the devil. The Holy Scriptures tell us that faith comes by hearing..
