The Church of Scotlands first error was to ditch the Bible, otherwise they wouldn't be in the mess they are in. To accompany the Kirk's mess the nation has followed on in Liberal attitude to God and Scripture. After all why should those outside the church believe in a Book which the so called "church" no longer accepts as the Word and Law of God. Ro 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

I am not happy at all about this because I know what God's word says about this sin (Romans 1) and many other verses in Scripture. I have prayed to God with all my heart for many years now for Him to help me and give me a hatred for this sin. I thought I was saved but because of my homosexual desires and, at times, looking at porn, I feel I am not saved and am on my way to hell. Perhaps others are in this same situation, I don't know. I'm at my wits end regarding this sin that I have struggled with since I was very young. Being molested as a boy didn't help me at all. Please pray for someone like me who is really struggling with this sin.
I will pray for you Freddie. May Jesus set you free.
Overcomer wrote: To the natural mind, an imprecatory prayer does sound insane. A dispensationalist would surely say it's psychotic. But in times past, imprecatory prayers were in the Christian's arsenal of spiritual weapons. Calvin and the Puritan's prayed them during times of crisis and persecution. The one essential element to praying such prayers is to make sure your own spiritual house is in order. Yes, our prayer should be first that the wicked would first repent. But if they don't, and continue to wreak havoc on God's people,( and the unborn) it's perfectly acceptable to pray psalms of imprecation. The same God of David who answered his prayers, will most certainly hear ours. But our hearts must first be right. I would urge every person doubting these things to sit down and read through the Psalms. Write down every imprecatory Psalm you read. I suspect as persecution intensifies here in the US, and Christian's must cry continually to the God of heaven for protection, the imprecatory prayer will not seem to foreignanymore.
I love listening to John Bunyan's Sermons here on Sermonaudio. In one of them he tells his congregation to pray against pastor's in the pulpit who are not living right before God and taking care of the flock.
Sermon On occassion I would listen to Rev Leonard Ravenhill's sermons.
in the early part of this sermon Rev Ravenhill at one stage says -
"in the name of God" (as if blaspheming)
Is this blasphemy? I felt uncomfortable with this from the Rev.
This is now the second sermon I have lsitened too where Rev Ravenhill has said this. It just does not seem right!
Other than that his sermon speak to right to the heart.
Our eyes are upon Christ! Thank you Pastor Wagner for this sermon preached with wisdom from our God above. An encouragement and edificationed well needed. Churches in Northern Ireland open your eyes and keep them on God and not yourselves and your imaginations but Christ who is all in all.
Sermonaudio is running a quote by John Wesley today:-
"I am a Bible bigot. I follow it in all things both great and small. ..." John Wesley
But I don't believe he was a doer of the Bible when I read about the problems that occured between him and Augustus Toplady, I don't see any christian love on his part, which is what the Bible requires of us as brethren in Christ.
Many quote so many false teachers and they are good and right to do so in warning the brethren but what about John Wesley? Is he not the one who constantly proclaimed man's free will choice in salvation?
SALVATION BELONGS TO GOD ALONE.
I know this is off the topic!
On the topic, I pray God protects Dr Orly Taitz and that the truth about Obama would be exposed. Only God can do it, He is in control. Let us pray and trust in Him alone to bring the dark things to light.
Well needed Sermon! I enjoyed this well needed sermon. The only comment that troubled me by Pastor Larry was that he stated that Paul had been converted by Stephen's preaching?? I do not see that as we read Acts 7, 8 and 9. No where in our Lord's Holy Word are we are told that this is when Paul was converted.
Other than that it is a sermon well needed for today with all the false teaching that is out there today.

As soon as I have a result from the Appeal hearing, I will post it up on this blog. In the meantime, please keep praying for them both at this time. Nigel
Hiya Nigel, do you have any news yet regarding the outcome of the appeal hearing as yet?
I put no stock in anything Dr Paisley says anymore. He wanted power more that he ever wanted to be a man of God and His Word. And in the end, God revealed his true colours to the shame of his family and supporters.
Dr Paisley needs to practise what he preaches before us here in Northern Ireland would ever take him serious again.
