if he cannot visit Iraq and see the fruit of his "protection" (that Jim usually affectionately calls the banana wars -- are you double minded?) -- if he cannot go to the areas where DU was used, and stand with the mothers and interview them and hear them cry in great thankfulness, then he either needs to repent and relieve Christ's name from this Zionism, or retire.
where's all the interviews from the Iraqi Christians thanking us for disrupting their society and causing them to flee into Syria (who are now having to flee from the western funded rebels!) -- and God isn't paying attention to this? why? because we are really that special?
"If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye....but let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters." IPeter4:14,15
turn the other cheek, since you say the elect are guided (without flaw) in absolution by the Holy Spirit (and not the flesh), then Mike's comment was God's Sovereign plan and therefore you should not disagree with it.
"As the government continues to shut down family farms, your ability to make good food choices diminishes"
most everyone is being put on the gm grid, and as I said, the abortionist I talked with said everyone would be put on gms (according to agenda 21) and people will be sick and on synthetics.
a local group of children here did an experiment and fed some of their chickens gm grain and the other the real and natural God-given seed.
the gm grain chickens grew to three times the normal size, had trouble walking and had less affection for their babies.....
maybe the Lord has just deemed it His will to send people my way, but I'm surrounded by young people with severe medical issues that just didn't exist a couple generations ago.... the statistics show mass increases in autoimmune disease in children, like diabetes.....

We are in hard times and the Body of Christ needs to be a testimony. Time for pastors to quit pretending. Time for others to open their eyes and realize that everyone around them is suffering the same, not just one group or another.
there's so much confusion out there. the people need the full counsel of God!
and that means we have to quit running scared and face the issues of our day, biblically and without fear teach them!
I've known that are just avoiding the issues and maybe that's a reason why so many are left without training (who would be convinced of darwins evolution -- Darwin has been disproven scientifically, even by present day evolutionists) -- children taught properly aren't left so defenseless, but I might add, that the power of Babylon is great, many will follow it... including those who go to mainstream churches and have lived under its benefit.
the Lord will sort this out rightly, not CNN, of that I am very confident! Praise be to God, there is no shadow with Thee.
"After this, I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried out with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb" Rev 7:9
too real, hope you read this, and know, I am praying for peace with Christ.
Obama/Bush same team. where's the sackcloth for the people of Libya? what of those in Chicago left unable to protect themselves?
of the common American folk, this currency crisis that we are in, after jobs, manufacturing shipped out, and the food supply forced into a sickly gm monopoly, is affecting all peoples of America.
America's in for hard times and they want us to blame each other. I beg all not to fall for it. they will likely feed distrust from both sides.
I talk with folk of all persuasion, common link, they are hurting, losing jobs, health issues from the food, and they see through the race baiting.
think about it, much of the inciting, is coming from prestigious white men. why should anyone of any people fall for this nonsense?
that "come to Jesus" moment, when we realize we have been the persecutors of our brethren, will be a benefit to us, and our testimony to the world, which has been tarnished.
May the Lord purify His church!
We only want to hear the stories where we can "play the victim" and refuse to play the stories where we can blame only ourselves!
refusing to repent, I sorrow for the American church.
as she is confronted with hate crime law and accused of anti-Semitism for sharing the gospel, with Sodomy marriage, how will our leaders choose Christ, when they so brazenly ignore the persecution abroad?
will they even know a choice has to be made? are we "too big to fail", SermonAudio?
they are playing Christian football with us, making us a hot potato in global politics, but Christians are late to the table, on moral issues, reactionary, and let the darwinists frame the discussion. we are vetting our information, just like the RCC might through a pope, where's the SBC vetting their info? through cfr members? do we even have free press, when things state related are simply anathema to be discussed?
while political groups debate these ever important topics, while ME tv plays debates and documentaries, we remain in silence like mushrooms in the dark..
I don't think men have a "lust problem" when women are dressing in ways to draw attention to themselves (I hope my previous post is not read that way!) in that kind of manner. it is the woman dressing that way, it is her responsibility, and its not honest for her to blame anyone else. men should not have to be on the defensive when they want their sisters to dress as sisters, but rather should be highly regarded for giving their sisters dignity.
Dolores, these are my observations of what was said:
1 - mature believers are "old ladyish" ie they need to stay quiet, they are out of touch with the times
2 -- the Holy Spirit will speak, but leaders certainly will not speak for God, if it means someone might "get mad".
3 - those "lustful" men -- its men's fault when a woman dresses unbecomingly
4 -- don't offend those who want to do what they want to do. (there goes the whole idea of discipleship and teaching the ways of Christ!)
seems like a small conversation, but it is very moving to me... in the coming days, choices will have to be made, each one will face those choices.... we need to be praying for each other that we will choose Christ! some leaders have left themselves spiritually defenseless.
ah Jim, I already know people losing their livelihoods due to this, many and many more are going into hard times, if you care to know. God will purify His church. all those institutions that we have come to trust are letting us down - and rightly so, we've made idols out of them.
