It has been a week since Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant and high-stakes video poker player, unloaded on 22,000 country music fans from his 32nd-floor suite in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort moored on the city’s Sunset Strip, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds before fatally shooting himself in the head.

Here are some of the latest details:

Security guard shot before concert shooting began

On Monday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo announced a change to the sequence of events that occurred on Oct. 1, saying a security guard who encountered Paddock was actually shot at 9:59 p.m. local time, minutes before the 64-year-old unleashed a hail of gunfire on unsuspecting concertgoers.

Previously, authorities had said that the security guard, Jesus Campos, was shot after Paddock had opened fire on the crowd below....

Four Ways ‘New Calvinism’ is So Powerful

Old Calvinism was fundamental or liberal and separated from or syncretized with culture. New Calvinism is missional and seeks to create and redeem culture.
Old Calvinism fled from the cities. New Calvinism is flooding into cities.
Old Calvinism was cessationistic [ ] and fearful of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. New Calvinism is continuationist [ ] and joyful in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
Old Calvinism was fearful and suspicious of other Christians and burned bridges. New Calvinism loves all Christians and builds bridges between them. (Online source)

--https://tinyurl.com/zf3t4ak (ACTS 29 Pastor Matt Chandler on being a reformed charismatic)

A reasonably good article, there are points--that I wouldn't agree with--but he has some good references, e. g., cessationistic and the following article https://tinyurl.com/y9t2amzl (Confusion Concerning Calvinist Spirituality), which has a lot of good references!

Too bad I ran out of space in the previous posting, because the article that I quoted from the writer himself had some good comments about the ongoing Reformation.
Bud Ahlheim wrote:
The Reformation was a providential movement of God, protecting His Truth and thereby extending grace to the undeserving world. Its’ fruit has, as of this year, continued to bless the world for five hundred years.

But, though we know the many warnings of end-time diversions off the narrow path and how the church will increasingly be plagued with false teachers and false gospels, the true church – not the superficial one – prays for another reformation.

We want another reformation that brings to the modern church what the Reformation brought to the 16th-century one – the restoration of God’s Name and God’s Word to their rightful, exalted place. We want that preached in our pulpits and taught in our Sunday school rooms....

Ivan, I already pointed out the portions of the articles that I agreed with - - which by the way I didn't think were liberal those parts could be labeled liberal. So, why should I have to repeat something somebody else said when it's right there in print and easy to read?

I usually point out where I agree or disagree of an article. So again it wasn't pointed out to me what portions of the articles that I have used in this thread that were liberal?

Yes, Wayfaring Pilgrim I think Acts29 organization has some problems with it, and considering that Matt Driscoll was the president of it for a while and considered one of its founders should have been a warning sign.

Matt Chandler, may have had similar problems in the practice that the Acts29 organization espouses. Not saying anything about his personal behavior at all.

By the way, here is an interview from a site run by a Mormon, but it's probably accurate and portraying Pastor Chandler his personality but not some of his theological viewpoints. https://tinyurl.com/y9xm8sdv (He Survived Brain Cancer and Leads a Church of 11,000 – but Have You Heard of Him?)

Bud Ahlheim wrote:
I think there are a couple of things that come out of the Reformation that are just really profound, far-reaching lessons.

The first one is that error, heresy, false Christianity can survive for a very long time. It can not only survive, it can actually be a dominant force in society. That is exactly what happened for a thousand years in the development of Roman Catholicism.

If you think that there’s not a powerful, massive, embedded force for heresy, for a corrupted Gospel and a corrupted church, alive and well in the world, you don’t know history.

Error is always seeking to be permanently embedded and given a kind of dignity, a kind of acceptability, a kind of prominence in the world. And that’s what happened for a thousand years in the development of the Roman Catholic Church.

The other thing that comes out of the Reformation is this … that as profoundly embedded as evil is for such a long time and through tens of thousands of people, God can use one person as He did Martin Luther – or two or three – to literally bring the Truth.

That’s something we ought to pray for even today.--John MacArthur

Jeremiah Johnson wrote:
Ecumenism is not true unity. It’s a lie agreed upon—one that inoculates lost souls to the life-transforming truth of the gospel.

And as the world becomes increasingly pluralistic, believers need to be committed to protecting the purity of the gospel, resisting the world’s urging to mix it with error. We need to keep clear in our minds the black and white distinction between truth and error, and not succumb to the influence of an increasingly gray world. Here’s how John MacArthur describes the mindset believers need to foster:

"Christians preach an exclusive Christ in an inclusive age. Because of that, we are often accused of being narrow-minded, even intolerant. Many paths, it is said, lead to the top of the mountain of religious enlightenment. How dare we insist that ours is the only one? In reality, however, there are only two religious paths: the broad way of works salvation leading to destruction, and the narrow way of faith in the only Savior leading to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). Religious people are on either one or the other."---John MacArthur

Those who avoid engaging in the media might say that the news makes them anxious or depressed, knowing humanity’s depravity has crippled possible perfection. But the Christian who understands both the fallen nature of humankind and our ultimate hope in things unseen will be better able to combat discouragement. We should not gloat in being uninformed, since we are called to be shrewd, not to be zealous without knowledge (Matt. 10:16; Prov. 19:2). Instead, we can look for multiple accounts to verify and advance the truth of a claim (Deut. 19:15; 1 Tim. 5:19).

The discerning reader can check to see whether a particular media report quotes several sources and attempts to capture all sides. The thorough reader will read a wide variety of sources from different persuasions to uncover nuances in the news. The wise reader will remember that we serve a powerful God who provides us hope as we watch a fallen world’s history unfold.

Sinclair Ferguson wrote:
Most of us doubtless want to distance ourselves from what might be regarded as “the lunatic fringe” of contemporary Christianity. We are on our guard against being led astray by false teachers. But there is more to discernment than this. True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best.

Thus, discernment is like the physical senses; to some it is given in unusual measure as a special grace gift (1 Cor. 12:10), but some measure of it is essential for us all and must be constantly nourished. The Christian must take care to develop his “sixth sense” of spiritual discernment. This is why the psalmist prays, “Teach me good judgment and knowledge” (Ps. 119:66).

It’s no secret that many Christians harbor deep skepticism of the “liberal media elite.” Some have been burned by the media, noting unfair or unfriendly coverage from the past. “I never just accept what newspapers say about people. I’ve seen them get facts, quotes, and reasons wrong far too many times,” California pastor Rick Warren wrote on Twitter earlier this year. Or, as popular blogger Jon Acuff has suggested, Christians tend to treat the secular media as though it were Satan’s newspaper....
But carrying an unhealthy cynicism toward the media can rattle our sense that there is indeed knowable truth. Instead, the savvy Christian should seek to gather several pieces of information and ideas before filtering them through what he or she knows to be true. We can look to media accounts to begin to understand general revelation, God’s providential work manifested in the world around us....

Ivan, I picked out the portions of the article that I thought were true. Now you can point out why they aren't? But the above article - by a woman - should be a guide to you, or ask your wife.

Pastorette lbug, yes people who cannot discern the truth from fiction should just avoid everything. I gave the portions of the article that I liked. I wish you liked the part that the new Calvinists have about the position of women!

Remember, gentlemen, you need a woman to tell you what to read and how to think! Now, I have used Catholic sources, not only liberal Christian sources, but sometimes even atheist ones if they serve the purpose of getting the information out. Oh, and horror forbid! I also use Jewish sources too. But, oops, I forgot you men need women to tell you what to read and what to think!

I don't mind lbug giving that warning. I just wish she would give warnings about conservative sources that spew nonsense.

So, lbug, keep us on our toes.

Gabrielle Levy and Alan Neuhauser wrote:
The guidance effectively fulfills an executive order that Trump signed May 4 directing Sessions to provide an interpretation of "religious liberty protections in federal law." Senior Justice Department officials, speaking at a background briefing ahead of Friday's announcement, emphasized that the documents do not change any existing policies.

"The guidance does not create or authorize the creation of any new protections for religious liberty. The guidance simply summarizes the state of the law as it exists today," a senior department official told reporters at a background briefing Friday.

The guidance, though, does appear to lay groundwork for mounting a defense against lawsuits that are all but certain challenge decisions by federal agencies – like the one announced by HHS Friday...

I suppose most lawsuits won't be heard in court until next year. it should be a very profitable year for lawyers.

Power Structures

Calvinista power structures are typically based on authoritarianism. They turn out to be highly hierarchical, but most frequently are oligarchical – ruled by an elite group of leaders. Thus, the Calvinista power structure is rife with:

Favoritism – preference shown to their celebrity heroes – pastors, speakers, writers, church planters, etc.
Nepotism – preference given to extended family members.
Cronyism – preference given to personal friends.
Church discipline as shown to those who refuse to abide by Calvinistas’ totalism, or who fail in full compliance to it and/or in full submission to the designated leaders....

Some of the key problems in these approaches boil down to promoting personas over authenticity, conformity over creativity, and corruption over integrity....

I agree with this fellow on the Power structure, and mostly with Mission and Stance Toward Culture of portions his article, Theologically I'm really in agreement with these Calvinists--except Dominionism. I'm hostile to way they carry out their plans

A Mark Driscoll or perhaps a Matt Chandler, points out what's wrong with the Acts29.

WFP, look at.
Romans 8
7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so;
8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.---NASB
John MacArthur wrote:
"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith" (Gal. 6:10; cf. Titus 3:1-2). It would also display a lack of gratitude for whatever amount of religious freedom the government allows us to enjoy. Furthermore, such pious apathy toward government and politics would reveal a lack of appreciation for the many appropriate legal remedies believers in democracies have for maintaining or improving the civil order. A certain amount of healthy and balanced concern with current trends in government and the community is acceptable, as long as we realize they were that interest is not vital to our spiritual growth, our righteous testimony, or the advancement of the kingdom of Christ. Above all, the believer's political involvement should never displace the priority of preaching and teaching the gospel.

The SA reference is a short, interesting article about them. I will point out a few things that were left out. The Catholics did not let the Jews the Dead Sea Scrolls for quite a while. The Benedictines kept them from them. National Geographic made an interesting documentary about the Dead Sea Scrolls a couple years back, you can see the whole thing -- of all places on Catholic High School site. But considering the Romish involvement in the Dead Sea scroll story, perhaps it isn't all that surprising. Anyway the documentary is quite interesting and videos of many of the places that the Scrolls were discovered and related sites. It does last for 45 minutes
https://tinyurl.com/y8r6zo6m (Dead Sea Scrolls - National Geographic Documentary). It was viewable on my Android tablet. It also included a transcript which was just so-so. Or from the secular YouTube site, https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4rN79yvpi1k (Dead Sea Scrolls - National Geographic Documentary)

It's time to brush up on your Hebrew and Aramaic! http://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/?locale=en_US (The Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library)
