I find it hard to use the same word to describe what Americans go through as those who are truly "persecuted", we are "reviled", "mistreated" "insulted", but without the physical attacks and killing or even imprisonment, I find it hard to see how putting us on this list is necessary at this point
Hate to break it to you Frank but God apparently isn't as strict in who he allows to be his Born Again children and whether they are old or young earth. Personally, I'm young earth, but I do recognize that that is simply NO scripture to back someone saying every Christian must take this young earth view or they aren't regenerate Christians.
Guys, this is really pointless, I don't want to be rude but what you're writing to me has nothing to do with the points I made. Please interact with my theological statements rather than ranting aminlessly about something I'm not talking about. We're not even interacting at all, you continue to completely miss my whole point. So I'll leave it at, that. God bless
Thanks for questioning my salvation because of my view of Christian rap music, that's sober judgment brother.
I hate to break it to you but God uses more vulgar language that you realize, how many references to prostitution, castrations, and our good works being nothing more than dirty menstral rags, and we could go on and on. We don't need to apologize for God's choice of words, his alone are perfect, but to say he never uses what you would define as "inoffensive thought". How you ever read past Leviticus? Any of the prophets? Maybe once you read the prophets you might retract that statement brother
John UK, I appreciate your respectful response, I do think we're speaking past each other, but it's ok brother. I'm just trying to get y'all to think more biblically and you are trying to do the same for me. It's probably best to agree to disagree on this. Blessings brother, have a good Lords day tomorrow
B. McC, said... "Please, your response to Connor's comment represents a state of denial from your part. We are to sing "with *grace* in our hearts unto the Lord" Col 3:16
I'm not denying that, I'm saying I can obey that singing a rap song that has lyrics for example:
Timothy Brindle "Humility of Christ" Verse 1: Forever before the creation or there was Satan The Son was with the Spirit and Father in Glorification Before worship of fire angels above The Trinity was in a perfect Triangle of Love Chilled with no one else No need for others 'cause God is self-sufficientï¿½filled within Himself And we can only guess the conversation but the Son agreed to rescue those the Father gave Him And even though this Lord should be worshipped He volunteered to take upon the form of a Servant The Father commanded and asked Him to come So now let's examine the fashion it was done Let me ask you if you seemed confused with this God passed through His own creature's uterus and I admit this is odd, but the Bible can persuade me an Omnipotent God was crying as a baby? No doctors around, no spot could be found To give birth to a Child- the only option in town was to be born in feeding trough with breeding cows and feces piles- the scene was foul! It wasn't fancy but raun
Connor said, "Now then, would it be reasonable to say that, since Satan or man created a false gospel, and certainly Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light, would it logically follow that man or Satan can manufacture a genre of music that God is appalled at? "
Yes that's possible, but it's not possible for us to definitively determine what that is, when scripture doesn't tell us
