You wouldn't commend the faux pa for any correct stance but you would commend others who are his ardent admirers? The vp says that he is a Christian but at a recent roman catholic prayer breakfast spoke how he loves the RC church...stating ‚ÄúWhile my own faith journey has taken me and my family in a different faith direction, I want you all to know how much I cherish my Catholic upbringing and cherish the church,‚ÄĚ Pence added. ‚ÄúIn fact, I just attended mass with my mom this weekend when we were in Chicago with family.‚ÄĚ Political figures do what serves them best. Much of the media pushes these "Christian darlings" on us who are nothing but ecumenists. I haven't seen an article on here addressing Jorge Bergoglio's latest pow wow with the Muslim leader signing a document promoting a one world religion...in the name of interfaith respect where by we all shake hands and embrace each others religion. Embrace,was the word.
It's odd that she is being attacked for having been a bartender yet the Pres,during his visit to Ohio, said,in defense of Kavanaugh,that "they said Lincoln was an alcoholic, give me 6 more like him"...negating the idea that those who imbibe,as Kav did and still does,are any less qualified to fill positions on the Supreme Court or the office of Presidency. Double standard...if one is liberal and drinks they are fair game for criticism. Yet, if one is "conservative" and does the same, they are to be commended for any "good" that they do. There is no party or group that has the Christians' backs. We should only look to the One who does and pray for all who don't know Him, especially, the ones who think that they do.
Unprofitable, you might profit from listening to Cooley's sermon in reference to black faces and abortion. We are to judge unrighteousness which would include planned parenthood supporters and faux pa sympathizers. If one cannot judge unless perfect than your comment is mute as it is a judgment. We wouldn't be able to discipline our children. We wouldn't be able to have judicial systems. You wouldn't be able to laud the praises of political figures who aren't "as bad" as others.
I thought that Pence was ecumenical. AS Cooley pointed out in a recent sermon, priorities are eschewed...thanks to the media...controlled by the billionaires. As long as the political leaders can keep us distracted and throw us a bone here or there, Christians are oh so faithful to their parties.
...more media propaganda. An article which reads..." provided manna for those in attendance",has behind it,an agenda. People who want the support of Christians are not ecumenical nor do they fund planned parenthood. Pray that the Lord will truly open these "Christian advocates'" eyes and change their hearts to serve somebody other than themselves for primarily their benefit.
I wouldn't agree with the "solution" but there is no doubt that the weather is way wacky now...much like birth pains increasing in intensity/frequency. In the mid-west we have had spring for the last week (60F temps) which followed a polar vortex which was preceded by a few other days of springlike temperatures between 50s and 60s. It has been commonplace for quite a few years now that any kind of thunderstorm carries with it the potential for straight line winds/tornadoes. Back in the day, when there was a thunderstorm, it was not common to also experience tornadoes. Now,disasters are almost par for the course. Emissions problem or judgment or both...but definitely, an issue.
From their beginnings, Disney has paraded debauchery in front of everyone's faces in the guise of "wholesome,family" entertainment. I would highly recommend Cooley's the magic kingdom or the Kingdom of God. It's very humbling. ..how easily one is led astray with the things which are in front of their faces.
Does knowledge puffeth up as in one ridiculing another brother's name when one is in disagreement, Tim? The names "Jim" and "Tim" are quite close...calling "Tim" "Timiny" wouldn't be very polite,would it?
It's interesting how Scripture says that we are not to elevate images but,seemingly,where there is allowance for those in areas of persecution. I missed that part in Scripture. If these images of Jesus are so important,as presented in that it is a tragedy for their removal,then clearly it is abominable for them to be posted at all. Just because one discerns sin doesn't mean that one is perfect.If one is guilt of the sin in which they are exposing then they are hypocritical. You seem to be suggesting that we are not to expose error? Love speaks truth. If these people are attached to fake images of Jesus, it may very well be that they don't have a relationship with Him in the first place...perhaps they are RC. Persecution doesn't dismiss God's Commandments. Not condoning fake Jesus pictures is not tantamount to insensitivity unless you care to be align with the "we do whatever we please bunch"....or are ecumenical. We need to be in prayer for these people ,perhaps even for their salvation or discernment as well.
I said that Christ is not being honored by false representations/images of Him. It doesn't matter who portrays or has these images. Wrong is wrong. If one is depending on that which is false for comfort,they are not only wrong but in dire need of the truth.
Around the time of the Presidential election,Pence was referred to as RC. In a meeting around June 2017, he stated ‚ÄúCatholicism has made an indelible mark on the American spirit,‚ÄĚ Mr. Pence said at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. ‚ÄúYour faith has moved mountains, and the Catholic Church and its millions of parishioners have been a force for good in our communities large and small throughout our land, throughout our history."
...seems he ,like Graham, speaks out of both sides of their mouth all the while wanting to remain "the darlings of the Christian community". ...maybe why we're constantly reminded of all the "good" for which they stand.
I am just wondering how being familiar with a foreign language and praying in it qualifies as "praying in tongues". It's not a gift then as much as just picking up a language naturally. John UK,.. last verse,again, is in reference to speaking in tongues and not praying.. There is no private prayer language that is "praying in tongues". Obviously, one cannot speak mysteries to God. Edifying others was the emphasis...as opposed to "edifying" oneself.
