Great Sermon! Love, love , love this sermon! Pastor presents women in the Bible in a historical and balanced manner while teaching the value of godly womanhood and how it is presented in the Word of God. This sermon is very encouraging for sisters in Christ and a bit humbling for our brothers whom we love dearly.
I don't think it's the free platforms that attracts people as much as it is the desire for fellowship and human connection. I left FB a long time ago and while I miss my family and friends who are still using it, I just don't want to be manipulated by what FB allows on our timeline. Some of the stuff they promoted was really depressing; I'm happier without it.
I consider Dr. Dobson a Christian and while we might not agree on all theological or political issues, it doesn't mean he's a false convert. I think some are too quick to condemn others and I advise them to instead search their own hearts to be sure they are truly in the faith.
I'm so sorry for those who have suffered at the hands of any spiritual abuser and Pastor MacDonald appears to be one. I remember Mancow from years back and I praise the Lord for drawing him to Himself - I also pray he will now find a good solid church with sincere, genuine Christian leadership that will love him and his family as Christ loves the church.
I'm not familiar with this actor, but I am shocked that he is so glib about invoking the name of Satan after winning an award. He truly is a lost soul and one I will pity and pray for, but not one that I plan to watch on television or at the theater. Thank you, SA, for carrying this story.
Good news! My husband is a Tool and Die Maker and has been saying for years there aren't enough skilled workers in his field. In fact, he's been wondering who will take his place when he retires in 2020. (Heads up, Gen Z - there's jobs available in the machinist industry.)
When I first heard of this young man's death, I was reminded of Jim Elliot who also went to an unkown primitive tribe to share the Good News and was killed by tribesmen. From what I've read, his wife went back with other missionaries and many have become Christians from that tribe. I don't think this young man was seeking thrills when he went as the 2nd paragraph of the article posted above says he did his homework, prepared and studied the tribe before going. Friends, I think his work will stand or fall before the Lord and we should refrain from passing judgment. Only the Lord knows what fruit his attempt at evangelization of a primitive tribe will produce.
Friends, if you want to be truly free, don't take government money to support your schools or ministries. If the good Lord doesn't provide, then perhaps you should "rethink" whether you're on the right course. I pray this example in Alberta will be a wake-up call to Christians everywnere.
14 Behold, the wicked man conceives evil and is pregnant with mischief and gives birth to lies. 15 He makes a pit, digging it out, and falls into the hole that he has made. 16 His mischief returns upon his own head, and on his own skull his violence descends. (Psalm 7 ESV)
Hal C. Ondays wrote: Well, Angela, at least you know you can always apply for a job at Harvard and check off the 'Native American' box when it asks for origin. Warren did that and then Harvard boasted of her making their faculty more diverse!
LOL! Seriously, doing something like that never crossed my mind. I would think that even the most naive person would know they should have documentation to back up such a claim; Warren should let the matter drop and stop embarrassing herself and her family.
I am also of Native American descent on my father's side which would not be revealed in DNA testing. It's my understanding that it is only through the mother's side that a certain marker is passed on. (I'm not an expert, please feel free to correct me.) But neither have I used my NA heritage for any special consideration or privilege as I have never lived on a reservation or been part of that culture. This is really much ado about nothing, IMO.
While reading the headline my hopes were high, but when I read the first few paragraphs, they were dashed due to the Charismatic slant it appears the news will have. How sad - can we please get a sound Christian broadcaster to provide solid news from a Biblical worldview without all the hype? Thanks.
