It doesn' take a Masters of Theology from Faith Theological Seminary to figure out that Barak Obama is a rank heretic in things theological. The fact however, that he even has these little "bible studies" reveals that he knows the gullibity of many people and dare I say many professing Christians in America, who get their theology from their own feelings rather than the Holy Scriptures. He will be accountable to God for this high handed deception. Weep for him, if you can.
"The Communist party is believed to be becoming progressively more suspicious of the influence of Christianity, which is experiencing significant growth in China." And well they should be, because it looks like God is doing a marvelous work there. Mary Queen of Scots feared the prayers of John Knox more than an army of ten thousand. These are no Romans 13 bots here and they defy government that attempts to trespass into God's territory. If the Commies are foolish enough to try mass persecution, it will only serve to spread the seed further. (Acts 8:1-4)The Lord richly bless the Chinese house church movement.

Go ahead and do it then, and leave room for the rest of us to opt out, thank you.
I'm glad to see that Target has taken a nice ten billion dollar tank, but I get the sense that when it comes to Franklin Graham, eventually he's going to wind up pointing us to the pope as an answer to all this madness.
"As a society, we have taken many important steps toward recognizing and protecting the legal rights for the LGBTQ2 community â€“ from enshrining equality rights in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to the passage of the Civil Marriage Act," "As a society"? Or as a small group of tyrants pushing an agenda. Liars and hypocrites!! You all are of your father the Devil who is the father of lies!
This seems to be the reverse polarity of a Target boycott. I do occasional service on their equipment and I notice that they're slammed with business all day long, no matter which store I'm servicing. But let's not go overboard and actually think that Dan Cathy's stand for traditional marriage and against sodomy contributed anything to this. That's extreeeeeme, and we won't be able to evangelize anybody that way.

So, I wouldn't look forward to being cremated.
When Piper was busy promoting and teaming up with Rick Warren he called Warren's theology "rock solid." Sorry but Warren's theology is all over the place and far from rock solid. But what's the difference? Anything Piper says or does will always be quickly apologized for. He is today's teflon theologian. Better nobody mess with him! BTW I find his books and discourses boring as snot and his teenage/yuppie cool lingo annoying. I'll take JA Alexander's instructions on preaching over Piper's anyday. Hoping for a great weekend.
I Love Flowers wrote: More of the hate coming from these christians like christopher. No logical arguments against the facts of my argument, just more babling about leviticus and the old testament! I have heard people say over and over again that those old, worn out, irelevant decrees in leviticus no longer apply untill the subject turns to transgenderism, then you show yourselves to be the hypocrites you are!
The real hate is coming from the LGBT community, especially in your rallies and your sodomite pride parades. That being said, it is obvious that you don't know (and I imagine don't care about)that the ceremonial elements of the old testament code no longer apply but moral elements still do. That includes those in Leviticus. God still hates sin. All sin. Specific sins, but especially those sins that blur the lines of the distinction between the holy and the profane and the distinctions between the sexes. These latter ones are an abomination unto Him, along with those who commit them. And real Christians are going to proclaim these truths and call sinners to repentance from sin, and faith in the biblical Christ, and Him only, no matter what anybody does,says or thinks. In God's eyes that's not hypocrisy, that's faithfulness. That's all.

2Ch 27:1 Jotham was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok. 2Ch 27:2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the temple of the LORD. AND THE PEOPLE DID YET CORRUPTLY. Godly king, but a wicked people.
