If you are posting from the website and need to post more than your limit, just ask other posters for a Bump! Have a nice day!
Thanks TMC/Midwest for your assistance. BUt I won't be needing it anymore. This blog makes me sick to my stomach.
The only reason I'm on it today, is to see if there is anything edifying. There isn't. Just a group of people not understanding where life comes from. It certainly isn't by bludgeoning others by exposing their failures.
Our LORD said, Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you."
Where on this blog is the news about this?
I used to rush to the front of the temple to show God what a good person I was; not like that other guy. But now I realize that they are what they are because of me. They have been infected by my pride, my lack of gratitude for what God has done for me through Christ.

But Trump's mind boggling relationship with the Truth makes me think that he's just playing to the crowd: www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/03/trump-fact-check-errors-exaggerations-falsehoods-213730 I understand getting things wrong now and then- but stuff like the winery show that it's all about ego rather than fact. "the vaccines you all push here have fetal cell lines." I have many concerns about Vacc. as well- but I don't recall everyone pushing for them on here. And to be 100% fair, not all Vacc. have the Fetal Stem Cell lines- www.cogforlife.org keeps a list of those that do and those that don't. Did Trump ever say more on the issue than not having too many at the same time? I know he talked about making sure his children had them spaced out, but he's also got Carson onboard now, which concerns me.
Tell me. PLEASE!
How is it that you and other can post back to back while others, like me, can't.
I get a message "Yours ...the last ... comment ..." Hypocrits

I agree with you. Although I love SteveR's posts.
I've addressed this issue of Jim Lincoln's continuous posting of world events to the extent he is taking our minds off things eternal. These articles and discussions generated by them do not edify. Nor do they motivate us love those Christ died for.
Only judgmentalism comes forth from those (sometimes meself included) who forget that any righteousness we have was imputed and by him who shed his blood. As ECC. 12 says they vex the flesh.
Now I am not about sticking my head in the sand; however focusing on world events each time you open SA's blog, instead of building up the saints and encouraging us to get the Gospel to the lost and exalting Christ in the hearts of believers are worlds apart. It can be discouraging. It causes us to find fault with the brethren. We are pleased with no one.
We wrestle not against those we are exposing. We are wrestling with the spirit of this age and must guard even our own hearts against it.

It is NOT the "church" who gives increase - It is GOD alone who does that. 1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. As for "political" "cultural" "military" - All things come from God, Man is just a servant and a sinner at that. Try and remember who is in charge MacArthur.

Great Sermon! This is truly an insightful, encouraging, and much needed message for Christians who think that they are not viewed as being anti-semitic and who believe that our government will keep them safe.
Absolutely Great Sermon! God's people would not be destroyed if they rightly divided His word, studied to show themselves approved, and prepared themselves to give a defense of the Gospel that saves.
This message is necessary if we are going to win souls to Christ.

One of the things I like about you, because it's big with me, is that you have the ability to step up when you're wrong as opposed to becoming combative. Not everyone has it in them to admit they're wrong about anything. That was just a side note and nothing to do with this: I've been watching how you¬†speak¬†to Penny from the beginning, and I'm wondering how you feel about your approach. I don't really want to speak for her, but my scense is that she doesn't respond because of the way she's asked the questions. I understand your concerns at times, but if you figured out a way to express your frustrations in a friendlier way, she may give you some answers you've been asking for. I could be wrong, but I've never known her to avoid conversation or respond to questions, so I'm thinking it's your approach.
I thought Penny, Penned, and Penelope (and another) were the same persons, because I've noticed the same approach and responses.
Geff wrote: Can we return to rational conversation gain? That entire fiasco yesterday was so creepy. Maybe we should pray for Brent, that God would soften his heart, and that we wouldn't have to deal with his posts on this forum. Have a blessed day all! I'll be around for some conversation, though I may get a little busy. I don't know when that would be.
Perhaps you should look at all of your juvenile comments and lay them on the altar of repentance.
Too much baby talk and not sound teaching. All of us need to grow up into the Head, which is Christ.
Be assured of this; discrimination against Black people has given strength to homosexuals. There should be adamant protests against and continuous preaching against the idea that being black is a sin. The "LGBT"'s argument was that they were no more a sinner than a black person. The church remained silent. There should have been one voice refuting this disgusting argument. There should have been extraordinary effort to integrate with fellow believers (and in the marketplace) PERIOD.
They, the "LGBT" are also gaining strength because we, CHRISTIANS, are failing to engage them one-on-one in meaningful dialogue. This is because many Christians find them repulsive to deal with. We should not focus on their sin as much. We should focus of the condition of their soul. They need our love and the Gospel of Christ. They are in the same judgment we were delivered from.
I stated the following: I know some churches who are NOT IN THE TOP 5 that don't use the KJV only. However, I prefer the KJV.
I meant to say They use the KJV, but are not in the "TOP" 5 of any denomination. Actually, the do not adhere to this thing about denominations. AND they teach sound doctrine. Their teaching changes you focus. Others will see Christ.
reason wrote: Jim; KJV Onlyism is a strawman set up by you modern version users to sell your publications. Statement: Christians use the KJV because it is the Word of God.
"Statement: Christians use the KJV because it is the Word of God."
I have a friend who is a Jew. He uses the KJV, the NIV, and I don't know what other bibles he uses. But he certainly has the KJV in his arsenal - using it as a demolishing tool against Christians. He does not know what version they use.
These arguments about what Bible version is superior tends to create doubt in an unbeliever that God even inspired any of them.
I repeat. If one is seeking God, God will be found. If you want to find flaws, look inward.
There is enough in all of these versions to discover the God of this supernatural revelation bound within. God will not allow his word to become void.
BTW. I know some churches who are NOT IN THE TOP 5 that don't use the KJV only. However, I prefer the KJV.
Why are these people taking up a fight with Christians. Seems to me that their issue is with their parents, the doctors, and the nurses? Why did they characterize the individual as being something, or someone, they are not?
This is a time in history that ALL Christians should dress excessively according to their identity. Males should promote masculinity. Females should intentionally promote femininity.
Take another look at Ecc 7:29. We have pickled ourselves.

Contend the truth for sure. I know that the old testament is as vital to the bible as the New testament, . What was the commission? Take the good news to the world. Ok so we have creation, Adam, sin , the fall.through which we're all condemned? Sinful at birth. The wages of sin=death. But then we have the good news, what joy truly! I struggle with all honesty to not be a kjvonly , that being said, I've only had access on the go to , the gospel of john, and just the gospels. I've had to use them, and I've witnessed first hand their conversion, people I mean . That had only had the gospels. I personally think removing references to sodomy, Sodom, what one must understand regarding salvation/baptism. Are we seriously to suggest that 16 odd verses that were accepted as doctrine for hundred of years can now be removed from Matthew and that's not a warning sign? Red flag? Either these things being in our scripture or they don't. Lords blessings.
We must be more discerning of world views. We are really loving people when we tell the truth graciously.

Oops! I realized that all I had to do was search Wikipedia to learn what happened to the sheep clone Dolly. She died in 2003? I guess I want to know if her stages of development were recorded for publication? All that I remember is that one day we had a full grown sheep called Dolly.
I just want the FACTS. Just the FACTS. Because we could have been hoaxed.
It still amazes me how that the most perverse groups have more in common than the Body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They are fully integrated; although it was not always so. Membership is open to all ethnicities. Their message ‚ÄúI was born this way,‚ÄĚ we know is a lie. They socialize over the same lie; feeding on ashes 24/7. On the other hand, our day of worship, be it Saturday or Sunday (currently being debated), shows a far more separation between people. Yet our message is ‚ÄúWe are born of the Spirit of God. We are born anew. We are a new creation. We are one Body. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. We are equally yoked, etc. Those feeding on ashes are well aware of this and say, ‚ÄúHypocrite! You move as far away as possible from particular ethnicities.‚ÄĚ I‚Äôve often wondered how it is that so many pastors have wives that are blonde. At least it was so a few years ago. Perhaps brunettes and redheads aren‚Äôt spiritual enough.
Please pray for Sudan, Ethiopia, and other parts of Africa.
I'll see some of you on the Sabbath, from across the street.
