    Nail on the head kdshell. Im really disappointed in Stanley here, and frankly I dont think his father has ever shied away from saying “the bible says” or “the Word of God tells us”. As another poster correctly pointed out our Lord while resisting temptation said to Satan “It is written….”

    We live in an age where many preachers are compromising the absolute truth of Scripture in order to win converts. I do not believe that thats how you win people over with a wishy washy timid approach. Speak boldly with confidence and authority that commands respect. Its attractive and convincing.

    AMEN. Box of lies! I watch TV every so often at my parents house. Ill catch a home reno show or a sporting event. Besides that Im completely done. 28 yr old Christian male. The programming that is on today is so incredibly mind numbly vile I cannot even stand it. Its all regressive trash. America: Whos been teaching you? Whos been preaching you? Its a slow steady process of indoctrination from the glowing frame. SNAP OUT OF IT. Go live your life. Begin the process of healing.

    The population will not decline they have frequent of sex outside of marriage by multiple partners. They cant abort or shoot them fast enough to keep numbers down. Its not growing rapidly like other minority communities, but it is growing. I predict that it will grow and “sprawl” because thats what Ive witnessed in the suburbs Ive lived in. Slowly spreading out from the cities into neighboring communities.

    Very true Capt. Many modern churches go so far to reach out that they loose their own footing, that is to say that they compromise their own identity. We live in a noncommittal society so too many people walk into a church unwilling to make any kind of substantial change. We also live in an overly sensitive and prideful society so people dont want that sense of sin consciousness instilled in them. We’ve raised up for ourselves ‘churches’ that tell itching ears what they would like to hear. Custom God, custom doctrine, selective reading of scripture.

    In fairness I should say that I dont know much about this church, or the pastor. My hope is that he experience true conversion, if not already, and that he grow and thrive in the Lord.

    Most people are not going to want to hear this, but its not unlike our God to punish us through foreign oppressors after patience has been exhausted and lawlessness is abound.

    Paul imitates the character of our God when he says this to the Church in Corinth
    “What do you wish? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?” 1Cor 4:21

    “Ah, Assyria, the rod of my anger; the staff in their hands is my fury!” Isaiah 10:5

    “So now God will have to speak to his people through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!” Isaiah 28:11

    The time to listen is now. The time to repent is now. The time to obey is now.

    Turn while the Lord can be found. (Isaiah 55:6)

    Software Babe

    Is the only one of the only ones on this entire board that is speaking Scripturally compatible truths. The rest of you are merely asserting your own ideas based of improper influence of modern American culture.

    Mark my words you will see more of this in American churches soon. Its part of the continual erosion of the church. Those who perpetrate this evil find every excuse to rationalize it. CHRIST is the BRIDEGROOM and THE BODY is the BRIDE. Every time you assert these types of notions you put yourself above Christ. It is him who they rebel against.

    Disobedience never results in lasting gain.

    You forgot the prophetess Anna, daughter of Phanuel.
    Just because there were woman of significance in Scripture does not undo the clear teaching on the topic revealed to us in the NT Epistles. Man is stiff necked and refuses to accept the command of God. What else is new?

  • [20] July 14, 2014 at 12:13pm

    You dont have a problem with it because you dont understand ….? I want to thank you for posting the passage. You saved me the trouble. (Although Ill probably repost it anyway.) If you’re a believer you SHOULD have a problem with the church blatantly disobeying Scripture.

    What is not to understand? Woman was created of and for the man, not the other way around. Woman is to be submissive, she is not to assert dominance over the man. She is an emotional creature first and a logical creature second. She was the first deceived. God created women with unique skills and abilities that ought to be realized and developed, she is not to behave as a man. The two compliment each other, they are not to compete for the same role. We seemed to understand this just fine up until about 50 years ago when feminist movement went into overdrive. Now it is “hateful” “bigoted” and “sexist” to affirm the Biblical stance. Don’t think that you’ll prosper through disobedience, God is not out witted or made a fool. His commands are given with value, purpose, intent and love, not to hinder us.

    Wealthy Philly suburbs, mainline, used to be majority white, some black. Now there are sections of town devoted exclusively to Mexis. More and more and more all the time, but the fastest growing population here is probably the Indians. Four Indian restraunts sprung up out of no where. Went to the mall w my gf (the mall I used to frequent as a child) the dept store now features almost exclusively indian inspired dress. At one point we were the only whites in sight with Indians everywhere.

    Because Baptists, Evangelical Presbyterians (not to be confused with the gay, feminist branch) Church of Christ, Church of the Nazarene, Non Denominationals etc etc are not “hated”? Might want to give a shout to all the brothers and sisters being stoned to death, decapitated, beaten and imprisoned, persecuted globally, tell them not to worry, they are not really enduring persecution for Christ, unless they’re Mormon. I guess the persecution Ive endured through my lifetime as a Christian was imagined…./sarc Pretty insulting to diminish the persecution experienced by authentic believers not belonging to your club. A lot of the marginalization Mormons experience comes from Christians who prefer to stick to the 66 books of the canonized Holy Bible. They believe it to be satisfactory, that everything we need to know concerning our relationship with God is included therein.

    “It answered questions no other religion could not.” Did you mean to say that it answered questions no other religion could? I would be interested to know what your faith background was prior to joining Mormonism and what you feel is so vitally important that is not revealed to us in through the Bible.

    You say that the Evil One stirs up “hatred” for Mormonism. Did the evil one stir up Jesus and the apostles hatred for the teaching of the Nicolaitans? No. It was legitimate. And I wonder what Mormons teach about other Christian sects? Hmm..

    I will say that I do believe there to be a representation of the faithful or elect among the various traditions of Christendom (some traditions hold a larger representation than others). It is also true that there are unbelievers among the various traditions of Christendom (some traditions bear greater numbers than others). That is to say that they are not Christians at all, some having deceived themselves. The identity of a Christian is in that they accept the Christ, being reborn (belief, repentance and baptism) and follow after his commands.

    My issue with Mormonism is that it accepts various writings outside of the generally agreed upon cannon, opening itself up to other persuasion. Now, I admittedly read “apocrypha” in my studies for the purpose of broadening my knowledge of religious influence and history, but nothing ought to be held in the same regard as the 66 texts of the Holy Writ (Bible). From what I understand of the Book of Mormon, the whole basis for Smith’s revelation was to restructure Christian worship because it had supposedly been corrupted. When Mormons try to appeal to other denominations as being no different, it seems to deny the basis for the foundation of their own tradition. And despite the fact that there are Mormons who claim to accept and worship the very same Christ that we do, there are indeed other voices in the church that hold Him in a different regard.

    Bry-Guy, Instead of asserting your own opinions of origins uncertain, let us consult the Scriptures…

    “And what I am doing I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.”
    2Cor 11:12-13

    “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.” 2Peter 2:1

    “They must be silenced, since they are upsetting whole families by teaching for shameful gain what they ought not to teach.” Titus 1:11

    Now, if we spend time in the Scriptures we know that the Apostles spent considerable time denouncing heresy, making an example of those who teach false doctrine confronting, individuals and assemblies. They received charge from God to do so. Of course we must be very careful in determining sound doc. vs unsound doc, less we be divided against our own. It is a lie that wind of doctrine, trickery and deceit cannot take or keep someone from Christ, or for what purpose do we contend at all? The consequences are grave because they are eternal.

    I have known only a few Mormons in my lifetime, I do confess that I am not an expert on Mormon doctrine.

    Diminish the threat of Islamic terrorism to the United States

    1. Make disciples of Christ here in the United States. The government needs to stop restrictive laws that; limit free exercise of CHRISTIAN religion, limit free religious speech and oppress the church.
    2. Close down and enforce the the borders. Stop binding the hands of state and local government. Allow our border security agents to defend the homeland and deport ALL invaders.
    3. Stop awarding citizenship and visas to foreigners with questionable backgrounds. We need an immigration policy that practices a high level of scrutiny.
    4. We must PROFILE. Profile in our airports. Profile in public venues. Profile in the immigration process. PROFILE, PROFILE, PROFILE. Violent threats are coming from select people groups and if we are not prepared to acknowledge that bc of some liberal PC trash than we are defeated already.
    5. Stop treating foreign war criminals like domestic citizens, and STOP offering them perks and early release.
    6. Run military campaigns, with selective bombing routes on the regular.
    7. STOP limiting opportunity for energy independence.
    8. Clean up the cultural rot that exists here in the US bc it weakens us economically, legally, militarily, spiritually. Demand better from Hollywood, Sports, Public Ed. Demand better from ourselves, and from each other. Action starts with me, you and our families.
