There is a website called rate my professor where college students can rate their professors with comments, and this teacher has a entire list of people that feel she is abusing her status. On top of subject matter and rudeness, she also is absent quite a bit. She allows students 2 absences but takes 10 herself

To clarify John UKs statement. One would say you can never be right with GOD by yourself, thus the need for a Savior and to be IN CHRIST for salvation. And whats up with Francis? That is serious denial of the failures in RCC leadership comparing an involuntary disease like leprosy with child abuse.

She didn't so I was texting to find out where she was to pick her up. She said she was going to stay, so I turned in. Early morning, I slipped a couple of pages into her purse explaining why no Christian should go into a strip club along with relevant scriptures, and it was very thorough. That night I asked if she had read it, she said, yes, and I asked for her thoughts. She shrugged her shoulders and said she sees nothing wrong with it. Personal info, obviously, but it speaks loudly to what I see around me from those who claim the word, Christian, and

Mike wrote: Jim for Dave Hunt, if the Bible neither forbids, nor supports, political/social activism, then it is a matter of conscience, just like the eating of meat vs vegetables only. You'll have to decide which is the weaker brother position. In any case it is not yours to criticize the take of those who hold the different view. That is the biblical position. Deal with it.
Hunt might not appreciate his religious freedom as much as he should. Without stating the obvious, Christians in our country have used their gifts for political activism to secure the ability to share the Gospel with limited restraint
btw- Tell Dave I can bring up several instances in the OT where the people have been successful politically. Granted, mostly they are successful in wickedness, but at times the righteous were successful politically
John Yurich USA wrote: It is according to the Epistles of Saint Paul where it states Bishops, Pastors, Elders and Deacons. Why are you so weird? Independent Baptist Churches have ordained clergy and they base their doctrines on the Bible only. So that takes care of your nonsense that ordained clergy are not biblical.
You won that debate, they are so desperate they are talking themselves in circles. Well argued from a Scriptural standpoint John Y
John UK wrote: John, there is only one head of the church - Jesus. We become members of his (one) body at conversion. We are gifted by God as he wills, in order to benefit and bless the rest of the body at assembly meetings. We are to be sensitive to the Spirit at meetings, and be led by him. This is the only way that the head gets his way when his people meet. Clergy and laity are neither terms nor principles found in the new testament.
I think you misunderstood John Y or deliberately avoiding his question. He wasn't talking about removing Jesus as head of the Church. He was more asking about your Church structure. Scripturally sound Churches have Bishops, Pastors, Elders and Deacons per the Epistles of Paul

However it is strange that you, a person who has joked about rape victims, among other vile things, should even criticize us.
I didn't mean "of" in that way. It should be understood as 'belonging to' or doing the work of the Evil one
Wayfarer Pilgrim wrote: Ontario Quebec historically has been a Roman Catholic province . This country has a long history of Catholicism. But, with most catholic based religion tumbles down to secularism. Both forms of government are totalitarian and go about an anti evangelical viewpoint.

I'm not sure if you are blaming Catholics, French, Canadians, Vichy or Nazis for the current state of Ontario and this new liberal law. But lets see: Catholics are only 28% of the population of Ontario and were the main force against the Law- So that implication doesn't hold up Canadians fought along side England and the USA against Nazis during WW2- So that doesn't hold up Canadians did however had have diplomatic relations with the Vichy Govt, but so did the USA. Both countries severed them in 1942. A very weak argument at best, intentional deception at worst. If you are upset about that, look at Australia. Australia maintained full relations with Vichy France even after 1942
This law is the result of a liberal government in a liberal Western Country not your imaginary spirits

Yep Coptic Church bringing fruit and raising up Saints despite the naysayers and terrorists. Personally I think the antiCoptic naysayers are more dangerous that the terrorists. The naysayers might convince people to leave the Church altogether, the terrorists can just attack the flesh
Connor7 wrote: John, I don't know about Luther's stance on the issue but...the Catholic church has evolved...for the worse, it's not the same that it was back in 1517, it has changed greatly. When the pope starts saying that the most evil thing is youth unemployment, and says that Muslims and Catholics worship the same God...you know that something has changed. "If the Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God", then that is the biblical and historical Jesus that the Catholic Church worships as God." Oh for Patrick's sake Patrick, we've gone through this, the number of assumptions and errors of logic are listed below: 1. Assumes that they (the Catholic church) believe it in heart. 2. Assumes that everyone (in the Catholic church) knows it. 3. Assumes that everyone (in the Catholic church) follows it. 4. Assumes that mass isn't blasphemous. 5. Assumes that the statues are not graven images. 6. Assumes that prayers to the saints is not idolatrous (and blasphemous)
I suggest everyone here actually discuss the sermon every Sunday morning after Church instead of Sports or the weather. You will be surprised how much your brethren need your attention

THE oldest of the doctrinal standards in the Reformed Church is the Belgic Confession,it agrees with John Y(who in Blessed and has treasure heaped up in heaven).However wicked people will indeed tempt people not to attend church, Some deceive themselves. Others are just plain EVIL
Belgic Confession Ch 28: Since this holy congregation is an assembly of those who are saved, and that out of it there is no salvation, that no person of whatsoever state or condition he may be, ought to withdraw himself, to live in a separate state from it; but that all men are in duty bound to join and unite themselves with it; maintaining the unity of the Church; submitting themselves to the doctrine and discipline thereof; bowing their necks under the yoke of Jesus Christ; and as mutual members of the same body, serving to the edification of the brethren, according to the talents God has given them. And that this may be the more effectually observed, it is the duty of all believers, according to the word of God, to separate themselves from all those who do not belong to the Church, and to join themselves to this congregation, wheresoever God hath established it...Therefore all those, who separate themselves from the same, or do not join themselves to it, act contrary to the ordinance of God.

This is a lawsuit by employees for their promised wages. Employees that are often not Christian. Granted, I cant tell if the employees are being unreasonable or being oppressed by their employer. If the ruling just means that the institutions aren't bound by ERISA requirements, I'm OK with it as long as the institutions don't use this as an excuse to oppress their employees

I think the Federal Reserve has done its job, putting Americans in debt by 20 Trillion dollars. Its an amount that cant be repaid. Last year on SA I said Trump was chosen because he is about the only person that can offer to restructure the debt and keep a straight face telling debt holders they will be repaid. Nobody has more experience going BK than Trump
I think he will offer all the current debt holders a new monetary instrument, something like a zero coupon bond that doesn't mature for 50 years.

Some proponents of the Gaia hypothesis say that Gaia is not some cuddly, friendly planet, but a planet that will be void of people. I'll give you quotes if you want. As far as pollution in India, I know of...three missionaries to India, and a church in India that is facing persecution, you should be more concerned about the church than pollution, and India kicked out Compassion International, which was saving their citizens, and India has laws against eating the plethora of cows over there.
The law is broken up into two parts: first, our obligations to GOD, and the second our obligations to our Neighbor. If someone legitimately believes their obligation to care for the earth is a duty to their neighbor, I understand. A good example was when Hebrews needed to give their land rest every 7 years. But TODAY I find most down deep don't give a hoot about the environment and have ulterior motives in their pro climate agenda

Actually 1300 years ago, and they were overrun by the non trinitarian Visigoths. It wasn't until Visigoths occupied Southern Europe did Visigoths accept Trinitarian Christianity and discard their heretical form of Christianity. I find this very interesting because Visigoths are the forefathers of the earliest Protestants
