Thank you Christopher, and yes, I have had better opportunities too see that not all Pentacosts are wild eyed , aside from their intoxicated worship services, some are caring and helpful by far, they are the most intragrated group of followers I've seen. I do wish we as Christians could become more intergrated and loving. in churches, we're still devided by race, " worship styles", and age groups.
My prayers and concern for these brother and sisters is that in their persecution they may suffer all the more, for it is true that to the world the cross is foolish, yet this symbol and execution apparatus did not save us, it is faith in Christ dying and raising from the dead for the forgiveness.of our sins and in him alone that saved us. I pray that it is their witness that preaches the gospel daily.
My experience has been they're big on baptism of Holy Spirit, hyper emotional on "services" and at a church here locally, too much fraternizing with the female members and single "deacons" and "ushers". Their so kjv only, I thought I was about to be fed my nkjv for breakfast. I learned to avoid that diner.
An apology is not an excuse for breaking the law. Have the commissioner answer to who gave the orders to harass conservative groups and either ask for a special prosecutor or send findings to grand jury.
Saw an article that camping, with just the basics , butane stove, lantern, etc, without any electronic devices resets your internal clock and puts your body on a even keel for sleep, appetite, memory, etc. I spent summers with grandparents going to Montana , and fished the big hole river. They pulled their Airstream trailer with a 1972 F-250 "camper special" pickup. Wonderful memories.
I'll bet he would have had more than "hurt" feeling if the school district had enacted Sharia compliance laws for hiring practices of district employees.
Nevertheless, churches renting buildings for services are about to end, as are purchasing land for building churches. Unless your going to pay taxes on the building and property, you won't be given a permit.
Abortionists will and have used the judicial system to stop airing these videos. I don't see how a judge or news agency can decide not to air a video when it's a violation of federal law to sell body parts. They had a whole tv show on catching a potential pedophile trying to date children. And that was orchestrated with law enforcement , you show "doctors" shopping baby body parts and the justice department puts a halt on the video. Amazing how the truth is so polite and willing to sit down and wait it's turn, ... amazing.
The state department kept and convinced the Roosvelt administration from allowing large members of European Jews or publicizing the final solution to the world. Perhaps it is because countries in Europe were anti Semitic and that issue was evident in our nation as well. Nevertheless, the holocaust of middle eastern Christians is due to Washington's tone deafness on this issue. Our president and all aspects of his administration does not support minority religious civil rights. However, they will support the overall rights of a Islamic immigration into this country and limit christian immigration. This administration is set on making one man's emotive response to being rejected by his parents as policy for our nation.
It's not the symbol of a cross that will change hearts but salvation through Christ. However, as the world watches how we in this country impugn or mock Christianity, the persecutors of the world of Christianity will be more emboldened to rain on treatment on brothers and sisters all the more. Therefore, we need to pray for those who are truly being persecuted. The inconvienance of our present life can serve as witness if we boast Christ and not grumble. (a lesson yet learned).
It truly is an amazing period of time we live in. The spiritually discerning man and woman can see that God is at work. However, the wickness of PP involves our political system, democratic and republican establishment. medical research and a social net work eliminating children based on physical infirmaries, and sex selection. This fight is has been established almost 50 years ago and will be hard pressed to simply go away with defunding. That said, life is a civil right and life will win.
African culture has had situations which lent itself to homosexual rape or incest, it is a health issue and a sin problem. Africa has been decimated by HIV, they do not need our presdent destroying them anymore than they already have by war, famine or disease.
More so than not, the president has always thought he was a good president and he always says "I can't run again, cuz , our constitution won't let me" , then he'd tilt his head and beam. Whatever anti depressant he's on just keeps his spirits up, as well as his delusions.
Many politicians and for that matter social designers of our society, look upon abortion as a means of reducing individuals who will eventually committ crime or be incarcerated due to their crimnal activity. This idea is not specific for one race over another but abortion advocating staticians claim that abortion reduces crime. That said, during the Weslian revivlals in England, crime went down, society benefited sustancially. During the Great awakening in our nation, souls were saved by the preaching that warned of the terrors of hell and the mercy of God sending his son for our sins. When mens hearts are changed through Jesus, the blessing passes to society as a benefit. When churches seek to collect members and hearts are not changed you get what we have now.
Christopher, No problem, the issues we discuss have been policy in the psychiatric/ psychology profession for decades. Our nation is just playing catch up on decisions that on a federal we're made in th 1970's. What is different is the determination that the cause of lgbt is now based on civil rights as a determined special race of people.and most important is that 1st admendment rights are set aside in rights of lgbt people. That is now our lives.
It would be great if Houstonians actually went and voted on this election, because I'll bet the federal government will make sure the " right side" on this issue are either bused in, woken up or transplanted as a citizen to make the mayors edict become law. Then, the mayor's , "pastor sermon approval and harassment " committee can become policy . Thank you, Judge Kennedy, you folks certainly opened the gates of hell on the nation.
Outside the United States, this president gets schooled by every common sense foreign leader in the world. However, this evil administration will force sodomy compliance laws on all nations who do not adhere to their wicked mindset. Because Gods judgement is final, we do not need to be surprised that our leaders have been given over to a depraved mind.
