The Liturgical Movement has its roots in Rome. It stems from the Oxford Movement in Victorian England and the Roman Catholic Benedictine Monastry at Solesmes in France. It is a Ecumenical movement that strives to influence how church is done across all traditions.
Its logic being if we eradicate difference in worship styles then we can put aside our theological differences. The churches that are influenced by it are blindly marching toward Rome. If reformed churches adhere to the regulative principle then that should safeguard them against liturgical contamination.
Be viglant resist romanist influence and remain protestant!
In the worlds eyes, Christians are fools. So I guess if fools are educating children then inevitably they will produce more fools.
My children start their day wilth an hours nature ramble, then they come back into our loving family home where they will be read a beautifully written story of adventure & high drama from scripture. Study a language, sing songs and play.
What I see are small children who are listened too, nurtured given a voice and loved.
They are not bullies, illiterate or attention seekers. They do not watch hours of TV in fact they do not watch any TV. They do not spend hours attached to a games consul as we do not have one. And they do not spend more time with unbelieving strangers than their parents as do all the children in the school system.
Who are really the demented ones?
I'm raising witnesses for Jesus not little conforming exam hurdlers obsessed with what their friends think and sex.
Here in the Uk we have more CCTV cameras per person than anywhere else in the world.
Our government (local & national) can read our emails when ever it takes their fancy.
And they are now planning to record all (not just suspects) cell phone, land line and email messages on a huge database that they will be able to use anytime in future prosecutions. Oh yes the governments super data base will also record all websites visited adn forum postings.
WE do not have free speech here either, as we now hate crime and hate speech laws. So if I preach on the street and a sodomite complains I am being homophobic or islamophobic or sinnerphobic I am liable to prosecution.
It would seem we are living in a Police State with powers over its citizens that go far beyond what George Orwell predicted in his novel 1984 here in the Uk
All of that aside I will continue to preach repentence to sinners, sodomites, mohamedans.
He would point out their sin as he points out all of our sin and call them to repentence as he calls all of us to repentence.
No discrimination there.
The 'Big Problem' is that sodomites do not accept that their filthy practice of sodomy is a sin, in fact they even go as far as declaring as the 'Gay Bishop Gene'of the Episcopalians does that their sexuality is a blessing from God.
Just to clarify in the unlikely event that a sodomite is reading this.
I suppose that comes from the Indonesian influence.
Its high time we get people back out into the mission field. The Charismatic corruption of the church is soaking up our young zealous christians, while they get on high worship they aren't high on winning souls for Jesus.
It would seem that these sodomite fascists have lifted there tactics directly from Hitler's Nazis.
Krystallnacht 'the night of the broken glass' when Nazi Storm troopers raged war against the German Jews.
So here we once again have intolerant Black Boot wearing fascists persecuting innocent people because they don't fit into their 'New Sodom'.
God will avenge those who persecute his people. But be alert these perverted facists are coming to a bible believing church near you to disrupt and desicrate. Bash Back Chapters are springing up all over America and the Uk.
I haven't heard the sodomite 'Bishop' Gene Robinson speak against this filth.
"We are the American family, we live next door to you, we teach your children, we take care of your elderly," said Heather Baker a special education teacher from Boston who addressed the crowd at Boston's City Hall Plaza.
That is the perfect advert for home educating your children!
Califonia burns and these sodmites are still out pushing for there wicked agenda.
They are self serving sinners who have no compassion for anybody other than there perverted, mentally ill sodomite, bi-sexual, transexual, transgender perverted friends.
Wake Up America, the sodomites are in positions of power and they are out to bash us.
A Sodomite group called 'bashing back' are invading churches and descrating them with filthy protests.
But we should remember the most righteous amongst are as filthy rags to God.
Sin is sin...
If you have ever been angry toward another you are guilty of murder if you have ever looked at another with lust you are guilty of adultery. If you apply those standards the standards Jesus preached we are all filthy, wretched sinners, you, me all who have ever lived.
Haggard should not be allowed in church leadership again, he has abused the trust put in him. But he shouldn't be drummed out of the church if he has showed repentence. I just get the impression that there are many here with pockets bulging with stones and rocks eager to stone sinners.
You may not of sodomised a prostitute you may not have taken class A drugs but that holds no water with God. If you have lied, occasionally taken a paper clip from work, used God's name in vain...You sin is as filthy and wretched falling short of the Glory of God as much of any of Haggards sin.
If he has shown repentence to God and his the church membership then he should be loved and supported. If he hasn't then he should expelled as with any unrepentent 'immoral' brother.
Now put those rocks down and get back to your own relationship with our Lord and saviour.
Christians have a habit of shooting their own wounded...
But I didn't hear the word repent, is he angling on a return to church leadership?
We are all sinners regardless of what has happened in our lives, sin will follow us wherever we go...
Our leaders should be beyond reproach, I'm sorry that knowing he was struggling he didn't pro-actively step down before his sin came to light. His testimony would be so much more powerful and believable.
We should pray for Haggard , pray for his family and their deliverance from this stronghold. No man is beyond redemption.
It is a courageous thing to do to stand up there in front of an accusing world and say sorry, I just pray his motives are honourable.
