The man, Badoo, mentioned in the article as their leader, I guess, reminded me of Hallie Salassee, probably not spelling him right, but this man believed he was Christ incarnate; a prophet who would lead his people out from Africa and into the promise land. His followers then and now...the rastafarans...rastafarianism.
Bedoo may not have claimed the same, but it just speaks to the nonsense man will cling to and dedicate their lives to, etc.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and YE ARE NOT YOUR OWN? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
It was the firm belief of Victorian Christians that we are all saved to serve. Nowadays most "believers" think that we are saved to be served and that God is at our beck and call to make our life pleasant and to alleviate all the problems of life. Why, many even think that he saved us to prosper us in this world.
This is the reason that many gave their very lives as missionaries to make the gospel known to far away lands abandoning the security and safety of their own beloved home country.
How sad to observe the state to Christendom today, characterised as it is by naval gazing self absorption and everyone busy padding their little nests with the comforts of this passing world. Being satisfied with trinkets and missing the high purpose of our calling. May the Lord have mercy upon us!
Faithfulness to NT principles led churches in those days to paths of spiritual prosperity, until the insidious advance of rationalism became a tsunami that swept most churches into infidelity until the onset of the two world wars.
Luke 6:43-44 KJVÂ For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Â (44)Â For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
This is the only legitimate way to properly discern human beings. Look at ALL of the fruit.
Jesus even asked us to discern Him by those standards: John 10:37-38 KJVÂ If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. Â (38)Â But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
And: John 14:11 KJVÂ Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
Remember that public opinion was partially responsible for Jesus' death.
And of course Paul warns of the "Say everything but do nothing": Titus 1:16 KJVÂ They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
Allegations are not deeds. I am sure that if the President is indeed born again then his conversion is recent. So if he (or we for that matter) are judged by our past deeds prior to our conversion then that's one thing. But what fruit has he born lately? Judge him on t
The problem with the Church of England today is the humanist worldly style of Liberalism which has crept into the "church" over these last three centuries.
An example of this is ....
W. E. Channing (1789-1842) spoke of Christ:
"We believe that Jesus is one mind, one soul, one being, as truly one as we are, and equally distinct from the one God. . . . For though so far above us, He is still one of us, and is only an illustration of the capacities which we all possess."
Channing vigorously denied the biblical doctrine of sin and therefore any need for a substitutionary atonement.
The aim of Unitarianism, said Channing, was
"the perfection of human nature, the elevation of men into nobler beings" (from the sermon, "The Essence of the Christian Religion").
The problem, of course, is that Channing viewed this as within our reach without the help of divine grace, redemption, or the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ." (Sam Storms. : The Emergence of Modern Liberalism)
Thus the CofE (and btw the CofS) with this kind of heretical humanist nonsense as religion are not real Christian organisations. Therefore celebrating Mohammed alongside Christ means nothing unusual for them.
Lib news tries to justify attacks on Senators- "no bias by us " Not buyin' Example from WSJ re ComPost kettle that loves to blacken reps of competitors - "This week the swampâs hometown newspaper is once again exploring whether anti-swamp Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) was partly responsible for a vicious attack against him in early November. The Postâs headline reads: âIntrigue grows over what sparked the attack on Rand Paul.â -
That day might have come last month, when Boucherâs attorney said in an interview that his client attacked Paul over long-simmering disagreements between the two about the care of grass, trees and other landscaping on their adjacent properties in a gated community. For good reason, nobody is asking if Gwyneth Paltrow or Ashley Judd did something to annoy Harvey Weinstein. But the crack staff at Jeff Bezosâ newspaper thinks itâs perfectly appropriate in the Paul case to suggest that the assault victim might have had shortcomings in the area of lawn maintenance. This column has heard from various other residents of the Rivergreen community who say the Pauls are excellent neighbors who have no such shortcomings. But even if they did, a violent assault would hardly be justified" - ComPost will even find excuses for baby slaughter
Justice Dept. Launches Criminal Investigation of Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts
The international cabal of parting out babies- Wrath building to a boil
-- late Thursday after obtaining a letter from Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd requesting unredacted documents from the U.S. Senate committee that investigated the abortion chain last year. The committee, as well as a U.S. House investigative committee, both recommended that the DOJ investigate Planned Parenthood after finding strong evidence that the abortion chain broke the law. The investigation came about as a result of a series of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress that exposed the baby body parts trade inside the nationâs largest abortion provider. âThe Department of Justice âŚ would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Departmentâs ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of that report based on the full range of information available,â
Liberals and not all these comments are from liberals in this article, can have enough right on people or topics that they should be paid attention to on those particular topics. Steve Bannon is one of them.
David Smith wrote: into the mainstream. The Southern Poverty Law Center, an anti-hate speech watchdog, wrote in an open letter: âBannon presided over a news empire where he, according to former staffers, âaggressively pushed stories against immigrants, and supported linking minorities to terrorism and crimeâ.
It added: âUnder Bannon, Breitbart published a call to âhoist [the Confederate flag] high and fly it with prideâ only two weeks after the Charleston massacre when the country was still reeling from the horrors of the murders. Under Bannon, Breitbart published an extremist anti-Muslim tract where the author wrote that ârape cultureâ is âintegralâ to Islam. Worse perhaps, Bannon personally insinuated that African Americans are ânaturally aggressive and violentâ.
British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities. The change is already taking place.
British personalities keep opening the door to introducing Islamic sharia law. One of the leading British judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural, which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips, also suggested that the English law should "incorporate" elements of sharia law.
British universities are also advancing Islamic law. The academic guidelines, "External speakers in higher education institutions", provide that "orthodox religious groups" may separate men and women during events.
Ps135:21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD. -- There are two kinds of âyouâ â the singular âyou,â which is âthou,â and the plural âyou,â which is âye.â Â This distinction can be important. Â For example, Psalm 104:35 says, âBless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.â Â In this statement, the speaker says to his own self (his soul), âBless thou the LORD.â Â Using âthou,â his imperative statement to âblessâ is addressed only to his own soul. Â However, the speaker follows up with âPraise ye the LORD,â which is an imperative statement addressed to others. Â In this passage, the speaker begins commanding himself first, but he concludes by commanding others. Â We do not get this fact when the imperative statements do not indicate the person. Â For example, âBless the LORD, O my soul! Praise the LORD!â in the ESV reads as if the speaker is telling his soul once again to praise the LORD. Â In the ESV the speaker seems to conclude the psalm with the focus on himself whereas in the KJV the speaker clearly concludes the psalm with the focus on others. Â Thus the use of personal pronouns in imperative statements serves a grammatical and semantic purpose. - Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Ps 119:140

"We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our 'Make America Great Again' agenda âŚ So get out and vote for Roy Moore. Do it. Do it." Trump reiterated past criticisms of Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.
