Great Sermon! I praise the Lord for you, Bro. Allison, and your obedience to and love for God's Word! Awesome sermon! Keep preaching the Word in season and out of season without apology. Thank you for standing in the gap in this era of apostasy. Convicting but so refreshing to hear God's Truth proclaimed the way it should be.
"No foundation can any man lay than that which is layed, which is Christ." It's not surprising there are so many fault lines running through the vatican; it's built on the lies of the devil. Be like brother Abraham who "waited for the city which has foundations, who's builder and maker is God."
Great Sermon! Every child of God should hear this message! Oh, that there were more men of God that preached the whole counsel of God in season and out of season like Brother Cloud. Pray for him that he will stay the course. There is rampant apostasy and spiritual famine in the land.
Michael, your answer first. The too cool has to do with a theological disscussion, not souls. Big difference. That's part of the problem with the church today, you have to differentiate theology from soul winning. How else would a soul winner win souls if he didn't know the truth. And a newbie christian doesn't have to know soteriology from inerrancy to be saved. Theology comes in play when you try to win souls from different groups. Like I do. You must be able to express their views accuratly or else one losses respectability, decreasing a chance to win souls. (ie my ability to express mormon theology accuratly won the day when the newbie mormons went to thier leader and asked "do mormons really believe what he is saying?" thereby winning a few for Christ! I became all things to all people.
For the rest of you'all, The Protesant Pope thing is a toungue in cheek thing I use for fun. Anybody who doesn't know that we don't have one deservse to be taken in. ha ha. I'm sort of the theological police in my church and serve a vital purpose. Joking about such things as me being the Protestant Pope relaxes the tension and helps. Theology is fun and the banter on this about calvinist's vs arminian's got my interest because of the misinformation.signme The Protestant Pope
WooHoo! This is too cool. Calvinist's vrs the (so-called) pope. This is too cool. Where does one even start? Sorry I can't include the arminians. They teach that you need to grow in grace or have good works to show after salvation to show that it is real faith. But since that is also what the Catholic Church teaches, it would denigrate into a house divided cannot stand kind of thing. Have fun you'all! Sign me the Protestant Pope.
Michael, Seperated brethren is what they call us, when actually they left the gospel in the middle ages. I use that a comment that someone who knew theology would know about. And to not have debate? What about the reaching the lost thingy that Jesus talked about? Would you not reach out to a Mormon, or JW either or how about an Arminian? I think catholics deserve some of our time too. If one can not have fun with theology, why bother. Sign me the Protestant Pope.
I'm a Protesant of Protesant's(as in Paul's statement, not a protestor of protesants Read that Reformed Theology. To attack the RCC for bad bahavior is an ad-homonim logical falicy. There teaching will fall on it's own. Actualy this is a refreshing stand by the RCC. The previous pope was far to exumenical and nicey nice to evil. This present RCC administration is doing a much better job. Personaly, I consider PBS and our public schools far worse to children than child molesters. The Priest scandel was caused by the gay agenda (and liberals and our public schools). Remember the Boy Scout's stand and nobody stood with them? They have been vindicated. The hate crimes stuff is going around, and having 1 church in America calling it evil publicly is great. (besides those westboro types). We need to learn how to have fun with our seperated catholic brethren and have fun docturnal debates over columbian coffee. But, sadly, so many 'christians' (Reformed or Catholic don't know the first thing about theology. (can anybody say total depravity, as in we are all equal sinners before GOD, but I equivocate ) Anyway, have fun you'all signed, The Protestant Pope
O.K. Look you'all. Since none of the candidates are going to walk the walk, I want one who is at least going to talk the talk. Newt does that better than anyone I have heard ever. Remember Rom 4:5 "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" Newt almost seems like an electable David Barton
