Donât need an app to pray, Apple is run by a sodmite. Go back to prayer lists and use the mail or have it delivered by a sympathetic couriers. Look to the Bible on how the word of God was saved and risked for all believers.
There is always the hook of fornication in the Charismatic Movement. I would hope that that doesnât happen but, so many long term preachers, after 40 years go wobbly, and influenced by whims, wives and spongey thinking
The charismatic church is as a whole what fuels the Christian movement in Asia and Africa. On the broad spectrum of Christianity, the church is divided by two camps, Orthodoxy and the Charismatic Movement. Catholic growth is noted as are charismatic churches. The reform movement has devolved because the democratization of the pulpit and pew eliminates the worship of Christ. Europe and the United States are proof of that theory
I have always felt the Acts 29 organization were deliberately manipulative, elder led to a point of being vicious and placed a burden on the believers to do things which were unbiblical. We have a Acts 29 church and their focus is to gather young people, separate by sex and then each elder will take a small group and have them confess to the group their sins, in an effort to "cleanse " their souls of all unrighteousness. With that information, the elders have the means to control and manipulate group thought . This church has both men and women elders and have many young people as church members. They are admittedly Calvinistic and supported by one the SBC churches in town. Their practices are cult like. Chandler has a powerful witness but autonomy is based on economic issues.
Despite the continuous onslaught that sodomites as being " good, clean and normal ", I have yet to have a "conversation " with a flamethrower without it going sideways to celebrating their sin. That said, street preaching is a combat zone. If you enter in, the filth with fly. Sin knows , we're revolted by sin, I didn't watch the video, just the words of a hell bent man.
Thank you Michael, sad but true; whenever the Vatican gives a call out to Protestant churches, there's always a wealthy celebrity " baptist ", preacher leading the band, " why if the pope calls, you go". My goodness, mainline denominations and the Catholic Church persecuted baptists for centuries and we still show up to be counted among the monsters.
Chris, perhaps the churches you mentioned are really part of problem, because, MacArthur and Calvary Chapel are publishing houses , seminaries and preacher makers, but are not interested in changing the course of the community they live in.
Stick to the Bible, and don't go down worm holes of this and that; the Catholic Church and Lutheran church are kissing cousins as are all mainline denominations. The SBC has been flirting and literally sold their history for a bowl of cold boot clicking theology. The closer baptists have carnal relations with the Calvinists the sooner it'll be dead. Every baptist Calvinist I've spoken too make are to malign the older members as stupid and unnecessary, a member of J D Geerer's congregation said the sooner the " builder" generation dies off , the better, they love to point out that limited atonement is for the ones that go to their church, and not yours. Matt Chandler once said, he wished he could just have a debate with an opponent, where the loser of the debate would just drop dead, and added, that Mark Driscoll would just kill his opponents. "Calvin killed a few , sounds like a good idea. ".
Why do liberal denominations have such angst over sin. It's likened to Lot asking sodomites to not be so upset with the visitors and " take my daughters , please ". It might be because the regenerated power of Christ is not in their denomination. So , Mr. Bean goes all wobbly and can't seem to recognize sin. Good thing he was around the time of Hitler, he'd be the bloke holding the welcome signs on the cliffs of Dover.
It's not far from the rung of that ladder to ask bakers to sacrifice their child in honor of Molech. Oh, and the judges on the Supreme Court would hear arguments and even ponder a decision. I could even imagine Justice Anthony Kennedy arguing that it is the Satanist who cries at night for a someone to sacrifice for own desires.
Being unstable, and body dysmorphia is unstable , is incredibly harmful if acted on surgically. Suicide is in competition with murder and hiv/aids, for these folks. If as a Christian, you lead a quiet life, work hard, then give thanks to the Most High. Be at church, supporting your congregation and share the gospel!
You cannot buy an automatic weapon in the United States , accept for Nevada. They haven't said what this killer used but it sounded like a squad automatic weapon, and perhaps an AK, either way his weapons and motivation are incredibly suspect. Was this away of paying his gambling debts with a promise his family wouldn't be harmed, if he agreed to do a mass killing? Knowing he'd die either way? America needs to do away with black guns for private use, we've been at war for 16 years. And during WW2, automatic weapons were outlawed. Sorry for the ramblings , pray for the victims and this horrific violent country.
What my experiences did is make my life one prodigal trial after another, I'm in my sixties and the vices are fewer, but the trials and temptations are a battle, but, it's supposed too . Anyone thinking this Christian life is easy , that's for sissies.
I have always opposed to Obamacare because of the increase in costs. I lost my copayment to my doctor, I now pay full price. My deductible is doubled. But, my company will pay for my doctor visit if it's for my diabetes, yah. My medications are covered because the cost is astronomical, yah. But, none of this is due to Obamacare, it's because my company is supplementing my cost , because Obamacare made pre existing conditions the Bain for unwanted people. If the RNC , only offers less , then, think again.
As a young boy, porngraphy was everywhere in my mother's brothers home. I was introduced to pornagraphy at a very young age, and I was molested as a young boy. Hugh Hefner is in hell, so be it, and pray that anyone caught in this devil's lie, are rescued from the grips of pornagraphy by the life saving blood of Jesus Christ. If people knew of what sin is painted on men's souls , then they would be gladly grasp for the saving hope of Jesus Christ.
