Bibles printed in China are exported to the USA, not distributed in China. Companies like Zondervan and Holman etc (consolidation means there are not many Bible publishers left) just like other books. US publishers outsource their printing to Chinese printers (like RR Donnely) and import the books to the US and the printers make a profit and pay their taxes to the Chinese government. Which funds repression.
The kind of arrogant open hatred this guy is displaying is one of the first steps along a path that leads to book burnings, people burnings, firing squads, gass chambers, & gulags. It's prayer time christians.
Bless God! Amen to this sermon! So many professing Christians today are screaming for their rights when we should be denying ourselves and taking up our cross and following Christ. Please Lord God show me how to do this in my own life for your glory.
An honest analysis unfortunately can only come up with a cynical conclusion. Basically the ALP of which Gillard is the leader is on the nose in the electorate. They have lost every state election since the last federal election & also almost every major municipal election as well. They hold power from a minority of parliamentary votes via an alliance with the greens & a few so called independents. Gillard herself is the most hated politician on the federal level that I can remember. She is playing a numbers game it's as simple as that. The greens insisted that the gay marriage issue be put to a parlaimentary vote so she went along with it in order to retain their support. By making it a conscience vote for her own party (which is very unusual for the ALP) she ensured that the vote would not pass. . Result = Gillard tells her green partners in government that she tried but it failed & yet she doesn't risk further unpopularity by enacting legislation that has not been tested via policy announcements at a federal election, which is the precise reason she is already so massively unpopular. Frankly I do not believe the woman has a shred of morality or the fear of God in her. She is cold, dishonest, manipulative, & incompetent. This is proven by the way she first came to power
Is the author still supporting those who hold to the Federal Vision heresy and I thought A. Sandlin still held to some form of calvinism? Just in case John's comments have many abandoning Calvin and the Doctrines of Grace simply because of one quote about baptism it is THE IMPORTANCE OF Justification By Faith Alone that is fundamental or all of Christianity is lost. See the video below for sound teaching on what Calvin believes about Justification and what some are teaching today.
'Some of the men teaching the Federal Vision heresy are: R.C. Sproul jr., Gary North, James Jordan, N.T. Wright, **P. Andrew Sandlin**, Steven Schlissel, Douglas Wilson, Jeff Meyers, and so on.' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siqF4AStrw4
