Ok if western civilization is so bad to women then try living with the taliban for a week and tell us how much they are for equality? It is amazing how satan uses discontentment to foment ideas until the become full blown movements. Let's get really candid here if women were not supplanting me in the work place more men would be working and women could become more like a Proverbs 31 wife than a stressed out frustrated person. I think men who are married and force there wifes out to work have also bought into the lie for there own personal gain. I need a new boy toy so my wife's income pays for that instead of trying to stay out of debt and let women who clearly want to be at home with the kids be there. The other issue is divorce rates. Since GOD clearly made man the head of his house hold, then why would any husband want another man over his wife. That is exactly what happens when she is at work all day listening to her boss. Women become attracted to the dominate and most available male figure and if she's not a strong Christian then she could fall prey to adultery.
We do not change our faith. This is not a set of clothing. Bible states we love Him (Christ) because he first loved us. A clear understanding of the Doctrine of Election Psalms 4:3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him. God is not waiting on us to make a move like playing chess it's already planned. Romans 8:29 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
Just had a thought you know the those that believe that 9/11 was a conspriracy by President Bush and Vice President Cheney well guess what here is their revenge. This would be the only logical reason you would not believe that Muslims should have a right to build on that site or anywhere. Let's get it out right now. I don't want to see another Mosque build anywhere from Merced Ca. to Hobbken, PA. It is not a of GOD and it's a rouse to conquer people physically or take control politically. The left continually talks about freedom but they are supporting a religion that crosses borders and suppress half the world. As I always say you have to fight this with spread of venom with the Word of GOD. For those that are not keen on the word of GOD conservatives, right wind politicals etc. is not going to save this or any nation. It's our belief in the one true GOD. We have strayed from GOD not the consitution that's the by product of moving away from GOD. We need to turn and repent individually and live as Christians should and then you will see how GOD blesses a nation. Remember GOD does not and can not bless evil or wickedness so he's not going to bless America until those who are Americans repent.
Question what does democracy, shira law and communism have in common. They are all worldly systems. The Bible say's they are all worldly systems subject to their master satan Eph 6:12 so what would or better who would they elect to serve in this system? Certainly not a repented born again Christian but a atheist who's views align with the worldly system. Is is not a coincidence that all the world is promoting sodomy read 2 Peter 2:1 or 2 Peter chapters 2 and 3. Romans chapter 1 explains the depravity of this system that is why we are told to be "in the world but not of the world." Each day let's me know I am just a pilgrim on a journey because I see less and less of what makes the world so appealing to those who worship at the feet of satan.
Amen. There was and is only one GODLY nation and that is historical Isreal. America is a nation founded by GODLY people for GOD's pleasure and that was to spread the gospel that is so evident. That was the mission of this country and we like Britian decided to stop and the providence of GOD's saving grace is no longer upon us. Follow the decline of our nation as it relates to our Spirituality and it's paralell with our denouncing GOD. We need preach repentance as the other commentator said and pray that GOD hears our cry.
This week Mayor Bloomberg expressed that we (Americans) have to show Muslims that we are more civilized and democratic by building the Mosque in New York. Do we not get it this a Holy war all religions are supposed to be submissive to Islam or die. There are no moderate muslims this is a rouse to convince the non-believing public that they are safe. We are pursecuted for being Christians (showing love and compassion for those who are sinning and destroying their lives and the ones around them) but Islam gets a pass because they don't bother us with that evangelizing or I must repent and stop living in sin. But my friend when they get to our shores in droves then you will understand how Islam evangelizes by the edge of the sword or die. Which is better to serve a GOD who requires no work but to believe on his Son Jesus Christ and what he did on the Christ and that was died for our sins or a god who has nothing but contempt and disdain for his creation and they constantly must work to please him and never coming to a peace to know if they every have.
President hum so why won't he grant interviews to real journalist? He is making a mockery of the office of Presidency and most Americans are falling hook line and sinker. So this was to show us he's intouch by going on the View. I am glad the View is shaping the body politic. This country is dire need of leadership and what better way to show it than supporting the next leaders of this nation who "THE BOY SCOUTS." We need to fall on our knees and seek repentance as a nation.
Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed by the spirit of your mind. It took me a long time to understand the homosexual. Let's start with this if there was a fall then all things and thoughts are perverse. So homosexuality is a perversion because God has renewed our minds through salvation. But to the carnal mind that has not been renewed this lifestyle is 100% rational. We can try to counter with all the laws and protest but until a person not a group hears the Gospel they will continue in the lifestyle. So what is the answer. Be steadfast preach what is truth in the sight of God and let God deal with the sinner.
So we punish them later in prison? It has been well documented that you can't reason with a two year old. Become a social observer and go to a Wal-Mart any Saturday and you will see what happens when you don't use age appropriate discipline.
Hum national day of prayer? lets stop kidding ourselves into believing that one day is going to make this country more pleasing to God. I wish Christians would start being in the world and not of the world. We need to pray for revival not some man made notion of saving this country. Everyday should be national day of prayer for the Militant Church and its believers. God Bless his Church not the State.
Take heart fellow Christians. We have lost nothing remember we are pilgrims in this land and we should not become attached to the world. Remember we are in the world but not of the world. Yes it hurts it stings but is this really our system getting destroyed or the veil being pulled backed. We kind of all knew when the Holy Spirit is not restraining evil this is what the world would look like. Actually this is what the world looked like before Christ first coming. We had the world ruled by one man the nations were united under the Roman Empire. So take heart Christ will return soon or we will pass on to glory and be in our true home before he comes. This is just a journey for the true Christian.
PC run amuck. Ok let me get this a religion that converts by terror and murder is not savage. A religion who wants people to live in a backward society where running water is feared is not a savage religion. Those who worship a rock in Medina is not a savage religion. We better start calling a spade a spade or what you will here next is that sucking sound and that would be remanants of Christianity be sucked out of this country. "Oh God please give us the wisdom and courage to stand for that which is right in your sight and not man's. Allow us to worship freely and joyfully in the land that you have given us. Lord we call for true revival in this land and every other that has professed your name and fallen away Amen."
Are we there yet? That is the question we have to ask ourselves. There has been declared a worldwide Jihad against Christians since the early 80's and we refuse to call it what it is a Holy war. Since the other side has driven their proverbial stake in the ground we better take heed. We are fighting for the right to be Christians not a some vague and nebulous cause. Bush had it right this is part and parcel the Axis of evil. If we do not stand and challenge these folks and stop dismissing God it will not be life as we know it.
After watching the video clip what struck me was the amount of Blacks he has at his church. It's bad enough that the Jakes and the Longs seemed to be profiting off false doctrine but we are giving enormous amounts of money to finance ungodly white pastors ergo Rod Parsley and that bunch. Most of these charlatans have raped that Black community of it's resources and assets and they wonder why they are improvished and poor. The video contrast was stunning the narrow or the broad road. This is a great witnessing tool to visualize as to how the true Gospel works. Matthew 7:15-16 Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly are raving wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. As the man on the corner preached it's not about the here and now but eternity
This young man obvisouly got his marketing degree confused with his seminary degree if he has one. Speaking from a point of reference most black churches do not have men in the church because they are shams, cults and pastoring is a second income (google pulpitpimps.com.) No true biblical doctrines are taught no understanding of sola scriptura etc. And the biggie the Holy Spirit is not there. Your culture reflects your religion. Are black men taking responsibility in the home or in there neighborhoods? No! the Church has order and the male is the head. If men are not leaders in spiritual things then it will reflect in society. I attend a church and we have just as many males as females because most are married couples. Also noting the amount of single people this seems to be a safe dating service for some of the memebers.
Why not just call out KC and Sunshine band or Def Leper (I really do not care about the spelling.) Most of these churches are ran by baby boomers who think every thing is an experience. I have been listening to a series on Romans by Dr. Barnhouse and one thing that guy got right was that Worship is not an experience or a feeling. When you come away from real worship it takes your breath away because the word of God convicts. I would rather be in a small congregation (which I am) and hear the true counsel of God preached every Sunday and hear songs and hymns that say the words God and Jesus and do not refer to God as "Him". Than to be part of the great unevangelic contemporary church. Christainity was never meant to be a popularity contest. Remember Jesus only had 11 believer when he was cruxified.
The glorification for Darwinsim is qoute "standing up to God." That's the problem with sinners they want someone to stand up to God as Psalms 2:3 says "Let us break their bands asunder and cast their cords from us." See that is what sinners want. They "don't want this man to rule over us" and that man is Jesus Christ. I don't fear the movie but I do think I could make better use to my time than giving any credance to what Darwin's frame of mind might have been in. I guess I am an old fashioned Christian who sees the world in Biblical terms when the Bible say's in Ephesians 4:27 "Neither give place to the devil" it means to me the two hours of that movie could be filled with Godly learning. In Psalm 14:1 The Psalmist states "The fool said in his heart no God." The word fool in that verse translates to mean a stupid person. Since Darwin did not believe in God he would be considered stupid and why would I listen to what a stupid person has to say or what some else had to say about a stupid persons life.
John first of all your concern for America is exactly what satan wants you to focus on. He is using all methods to attack Gods people. Example in the Middle East he is using Islam in the Far East he is using the renaments of Communism to promulgate his deadly vise on the world. Remember God turns them over to their own lust. So my brother don't look at sin in a narrow context few what is going on through out the world. satan is only giving the "people" what they want.
Jim you are always citing you pastors sermons so I thought I would listen to a couple. You are blessed to be under such sound teaching. Although my pastor's no slouch. Anyway I am affliated with ConAgra Foods and a coworker of mine just moved into the area and he's looking for a biblically sound church. I told him yours was the ticket. So be looking for a family to visit soon from the KC area. I knew this site would lead to God's providence showing through.
It is a foregone conclusion that laws are to be interpeted by lawyers and judges not what the body of the law says. So if you pass a law and it says that someone "may" be harmed most lawyers are going to interpet that as "shall" be harmed and that will be the bases for the their complaints. This is the beginning of the persecution of Christians in this country. You have to have the straw man and that is homosexuality. This is going to give every memeber of some gay organization the right to holler discrimination. The nexus is to see how these new laws will stand up in the Islam communities where this sodomnistic behavior is punishable by death. Let's see how many Muslims they bring to trial for haboring this believe. Christians are easy targets because we speak the truth of the Bible. What the other religions do is act upon and dares the rest of the their community to say something. Just a side note I think the Muslim community has the lowest incidents of aides and aides related complications. Obama wants to lower cost of healthcare start with the sodomites and the expensive care and drugs the have to take to live in a sinful lifestyle who said sin was free.
