This is painfully obvious when you look at the state of the Christian church today. Most believers are clueless as to what Scripture says other than "don't judge". There are two fundamental reasons for this. 1) Most people have no idea what the Bible is (or says). They see it as a sacred book only for priests and preachers that's beyond their understanding and filled with historical data and a list of things they shouldn't be doing. That's what a lot of preachers and pastors want them to think. They have no idea that the book they can hold in their own hands contains the very mind of the God who created them and saved them. It's the most precious possession of the human race. 2) It's easier to go listen to Dr. So-and-So every Sunday tell them his personal interpretation of the Bible and what they should believe about it. He knows best because he's the "pastor". Or they let those heretical nuts on TV explain it to them.
Mr. Pence would do well to heed his own instruction and share the gospel of salvation with those sodomites and their "partners" that he stands alongside while holding God's word (which strongly condemns their unrepentant behavior) for them to put their filthy hands on as he swears them into office. Mr. Pence seems to have high standards for everyone but himself. And before you say, "but that's his job", go read the book of Daniel.
Another perfect example of the lost, unbelieving world deciding what a Christian is and how to define Christian behavior. It goes on everywhere, all day long. Chelsea Clinton (or any Clinton) telling anyone what is Christlike or what is unChristian is the equivalent of me telling Navy fighter pilot how to fly his jet. I don't have a clue.
Christopher000, I started participating in these SA threads from the get-go many (20?) years ago when SA began. There were mostly edifying, lively discussions until Jim showed up on EVERY SINGLE THREAD posting loooong, cut & paste quotes from various sources (usually Gil Rugh or someone else no one cares about) along with some snarky, sarcastic comment that derailed the discussion (I believe that was his intention) and made a general mess of things. This ain't 'Jim Lincoln Audio', it's SermonAudio and this ought to be an arena for discussing various topics in the news, not Jim Lincoln's usually mindless, lazy plagiary. I still read the SA 'News' articles every morning and occasionally scroll down to the comments. Sure enough, there's Jim's claptrap. No man on earth can possibly have that much free time. You keep coming here. You'll see. And thank the Lord for John in the UK.
I mostly quit reading and participating in the comments on SermonAudio several years ago because of Jim. He appears to have had nothing to do for the past 20 years other than cut & paste other folks' quotes on SA and it's just annoying. My assumption has always been that he has a nefarious agenda and wouldn't be at all surprised if he's a plant from the RC cult. Am I wrong?
"Religious myth"? There's much more and much better evidence of a worldwide flood than there is of the evolution myth. No child from a Christian home should ever darken the door of a government school (indoctrination center).
Great Sermon! I am an elder in my church (PCA) and our pastor asked us to listen to this sermon. I am glad he did. It encouraged me a great deal and reminded me of how much God loves us. I hope that before I leave this earth, I will truly understand what it means to no longer live for myself, but to live for Him, who gave His all for me. He is so good!
I believe if God were going to speak to Heidi Cruz about anything it's much more likely that He would have told her (and Ted) that since she claims to be a Christian she ought to be keeping a home and raising those two pretty little daughters instead of out trying to run the world and earn Ted a living. And if Ted were in his Bible as much as he claims to be he would know that.
This is indeed a rarity - a Jim Lincoln post I wholeheartedly agree with. True Christian churches and real Christian parachurch organizations should have absolutely no ties to the federal government in any fashion or form. Once they do, they are tools of the state rather than bodies of Christ. No genuine body of called-out believers should have a federal 501c3 tax exemption or accept tax dollars from the government - ever. The Roman Catholic cult will no doubt disagree but I wouldn't expect anything else.
Why can no one engage in a discussion by sticking with the topic? Parsing words and snarky comments prove nothing but stupidity.
UnprofitableServant: You've crossed the line, Hoss. Meet me at the Marietta Diner parking lot - or anywhere else of your choosing - this evening and I'll happily explain my wife's pajama situation with you in person. I live nearby so anywhere close is great with me. Don't be a coward - meet me. Maybe after your wife gets home from Kroger. And that's assuming you're a man.
