Thousands pay respect to Billy Graham in U.S. Capitol
On an uncharacteristically beautiful spring day, the calm before a Nor'easter storm, thousands of people waited patiently to pay respects to Billy Graham, "America's pastor," whose remains were brought to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda Feb. 28 and March 1.
The international evangelist, 99, died at his home in North Carolina on Feb. 21.
Though the public viewing would start at 1 p.m., the earliest guests arrived around 5:30 a.m., U.S. Park Police reported, and began assembling between the Supreme Court building and the Capitol.
Underneath the blowing flags poised at half-mast, people from across the nation shared with each other their individual memories of Billy Graham, whose funeral will be Friday (March 2) in Charlotte, N.C....
Yeah, everything is geared to smartphone's and mobile devices. You should look at getting a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or above, it's like an laptop and tablet in one. Ya get the best of both worlds. ๐
Check out my latest post on today's article entitled: Presbyterian Church of Canada's "letter of repentance".

I get none of that crap here on the SA app. (Actually, that rhythms, I wonder if IE could rap to that!! โบ๐) Sounds like they need to perfect the website to be more like the app, as it's waaayyyy more user friendly to use than their confusing website. ๐๐
Yeah, I'm on a laptop. That figures. Everything is geared for the mobile device now. Even when I receive an email, many times the pictures are so large that they won't even fit on the screen.
Personally, I wouldn't lose too much sleep on people on here. If they don't want to live biblically, well, then God will have to straighten them out on that. If they're lost, all they have to is repent.
My Own 2 cents wrote: I agree, Watcher. Go back to Wednesday's article, "Donald Trump will attend Billy Graham's funeral" My post is the latest.
"I think it's pretty evident that John's reprobate. ๐๐"
I think we can say that about many on here. How else can we explain the desire to fight, judge and divide? I mean, people like us only want to expose the lies and keep people from deception. Yet that's used against us like a bat to beat us into submission.
I lie awake many nights praying and burdened about many on this forum (including John Yurich). I wonder...if those like Lurker ever pray for us?
My Own 2 cents wrote: Watcher Wrote: "BTW...1517 didn't answer MY question" I noticed that, he /she totally skirted the question. Hey, check out my recent post on the article a couple days back titled "Trump visiting Graham's Funeral."
I don't know...I get frustrated with people sometimes. I feel like I'm dealing with the blind and dumb. I get asked a question, I give answers to the best of my ability reading the scriptures, then I get lambasted for not answering the question. ???
Anyway can you insert a link for me to see what you're referring to? There's so many comments here, I just can't seem to find what you're talking about. Thanks.

I guess I could be more agreeable, by not pointing out error and exposing apostasy and heretical teachings. Maybe we would get along better eh? BTW...1517 didn't answer MY question (or I guess he doesn't have to now that Captain Lurker is on the scene). Do you (or Captain Lurker) believe any or all of the Grahams are saved? Yes or no.
You might want to take a few deep breaths and reign in the old man.... he seems to have gotten loose.

Anyway, for those who care, here's a quote from JC Ryle. Very good and sums up my thoughts exactly.
The late J.C. Ryle said in his โWarnings To the Churchesโ โ"Surely the dumb dog and the sleeping shepherd are the best allies of the wolf, the thief and the robber." And this is the very same thing Isaiah said long ago โ โHis watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, THEY ARE ALL DUMB DOGS, THEY CANNOT BARK; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. they are GREEDY DOGS which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.โ [Isaiah 56:10,11]
I for one, will not lay down and allow myself to be lulled asleep or be made to be silent by the dwarfs of the Christian faith who will mock and ridicule me for standing up against the heresy of the day.

2) Not playing your game Lurker. Sorry
1) There's more?
Moses recorded what God requires of His people (Deut 6:5, Lev 19:18) and it has never changed. Solomon knew (Eccl 12:13). Even the lawyers of Jesus' day knew (Luke 10:25-28). The apostle John summed it up for us (1 John 3:23). But you don't know? Yet you feel justified in judging others?
2) Knowing what God requires of His people, and has enabled us to do, is not a game, Watcher. Your eternal destiny depends on it. God will judge the quick and dead by His measure, not yours or mine.

He's none of my concern, but his theology is. What if one of my children pick up one of books one day and read how easy it is to go to heaven, and the seeds are planted. If I don't warn them of these heretics, who will? You don't seem to make the connection between the man and his theology.
