I remember in the 70′s, listening to his radio program, I think it may have been ‘the word today’ but I am not sure. I also remember Maranatha Music and the blessing it was. He was a true man of God, and always came across to me as a gentle man. He certainly left his mark on the church and the world.

What do you mean by a dog and pony show? If you mean being open or honest about it, then he does that. I do wonder what information you have that gives you the right to be able to say why he does what he does, in saying he does it to become more popular. Whenever I see someone write that someone does something because of this or that, I am suspect, because we do not know why people do what they do, unless they say why. Often, we make those kind of judgements based on why we do things.

Several things CT, he is raising the possibility of this in quoting from the article, he is not saying it happened, just broaching the subject. Have you seen any evidence that the Syrian Gov’t is behind this, or are you taking BHO’s word on the matter. If we get involved in this mess, taking out Assad would help Al Quada, is that what you want?

2 comments, do you have evidence he is a ‘crackpot’, and if I had made these kinds of allegations against this administration, I would not be inclined to hang out with everyone. I guess it is easier to lob pot shots at the author of the piece than it is to look at the possibility it is true. Nice try though.

Some people are so negative, to take a positive story, and try to find a flaw. Can’t you just take it at face value, she was going in the wrong direction, God saved her, and now she has found real joy and love in Jesus Christ. God Bless her. For the pious, negative Christians, 1 question, if that were your daughter, would you care what version of the Bible was used to affect her, and what church God used? And don’t think it couldn’t happen to you.

To all those that doubt or have negative comments about her redemption. Pray for her and while I am it, I pray for you. Rapture, God is so much bigger than your limited scope. I suppose no one is saved unless it meets your approval or translation. You remind me of the Pharisees, meet the same Jesus as many of us have met. Really, I do pray for you.

Beckistan, have you or any others who badmouth CFA, ever read what the owner actually said? Or do you just take what the media says he said? I did some research, and although I can’t remember precisely the words, what was said by the media he said, is not at all what he conveyed. As I recall, it was something along the line that he supports marriage in our society, and he may have said something about he wants find ways to help men and women. He said nothing about gays, nothing negative at all. Since this has come out about CFA, a story has come out about how he has reached out to someone who is gay, to be better able to relate. They have become friends and the gay person has said how much he appreciates his attitude. Of course the media will not talk about that. Do some research before you believe everything that is said by the media.

Donald, people can be ‘all about Jesus’ and still be guided by the Holy Spirit. I take it as he is not about tradition, promoting people above Jesus, etc. Some people could and did find problems with Paul himself, so until I know he is into false doctrine, I will give him the benefit of the doubt, like I need and would like.

I guess b u t t is not acceptable, it is what he said though.

Here I thought we were told to accept the verdict and politicians should butt out. I guess that, like everything else, does not apply to him. Do not look at what he says, but what he does.

I was at a ‘traditional’ church this week for a memorial service. It had a lot of ‘form’, and I would guess that some of you, from your comments, might be fairly comfortable to be in a service like that. I was there for family members of the deceased, and glad I went for that. After the service I left, but could not help but think that Jesus would have said, “that’ not what I had in mind.” Traditions, though not wrong, are not the measure of life. Skeletons have form, but no substance. Only when the Holy Spirit is present and in control, is there life. We so quickly lose life, when we try to structure a service to push our agenda. The Pharisees were biblical, but so much so they missed Jesus. (Jn 5:38-39)
"When the Spirit is present" there He's not welcome. Carl's is a Jesus-only church by his definition, desire, and now tradition.

I would ask the same question someone else asked, and one step further, what doctrine does he have that is wrong or worthy of ‘judgement’? And how do I know all of mine are right? Last I checked pride was a pretty big thing on the sin list. By their fruit you shall know them, sounds like lives are being changed, good fruit. I am guessing some of the same people rejecting this guy would have shown Jesus the door as well, so be careful.

Encinom, Dobson is not a pastor. You may be thinking of Focus on the Family, but that is different than this thing. You do not increase your standing with people by making comments that are uninformed. Dr. Dobson, writes and speaks about family issues, especially children. I am not sure, but I think his new program relates or will relate, to matters that affect families specifically. Have you ever listened to any of his new programs yet, do you know what they are about. I am not even sure if it is on the air yet. I do know he is not a pastor, and does not speak as one.

It is sad we have come to the place where we call ourselves civilized and allow this in our society. I am convinced that some keep promoting this to convince themselves that they are not barbarians. I was angry at first when I heard that BHO asked for God’s Blessing on Planned Parenthood, but then I realized how despicable that concept is, to invoke His blessing on a gruesome and barbaric practice. That anger turned somewhat to compassion when I realize how deceived he has become, and ask for God to have mercy on his soul, to grant him the ability to repent. Lord have mercy on our nation.

I will confess, that like some of you, I thought I had it all figured out, and God had appointed me to make sure everyone is as correct as I am. I was wrong. I do not know everything, but I do know this, that even though I know suicide is not the answer, I will not bring condemnation on anyone. Partly because I know I am not perfect, and if Jesus, who was perfect, can say to a woman caught in the very act of adultery, that He did not condemn her, I will be very careful what I say. My job is to love people with His love, and show them the heart of God. I would encourage everyone who wants to get a greater understanding of His heart and our part, to see the video “Furious Love” by Darren Wilson. It helped to put things into perspective for me.

BigSKy, is that the best you can do? You do it too? Why not direct your concern at the guy doing it, or is it not present? Or do you think because he is democrat, he has ‘good intentions’, and that makes it ok?
March 4, 2013 at 11:17am
Meteor and others, simple question. If the story is true, and you could be convinced of it, would you then say that the administration is wrong in it’s treatment of women, that they have been guilty of double speak? Or would you continue to defend this administration? If you answer no to the first, and yes to the second, then that tells me your mind is made up and their is no point in confusing it with facts, no amount of reason will affect you.

I will speak as a follower of Jesus. He is my example. We tend to put sin into categories. This sin is bad, this sin is really bad, this is minor, etc. Jesus looked at hearts, and since I do not know Ellen, I do not know her heart. Is homosexuality a sin, yes. Is gossip, infidelity, greed, malice, pride also a sin, yes. Jesus also looked beyond the sin to the person’s real need and spoke to that need. When He was met the woman who was caught in the very act of adultery by the religious leaders, He demonstrated compasion and love to her, and eventually He called her to step up out of what she was in, to a higher place, out of sin. It was the last thing He addressed, because He saw that her deep need was compassion. I would like to see the Ellens of this world, come to be a follower of Jesus, and I do not see that likely to happen if those of us who call Him Lord, pounce on her with judgement as the first point of contact. So often as Christians respond like the religious leaders and want to stone them, and not respond like Jesus, with compassion. When we learn that if we want people to see Jesus for who He is, they will most likely need to see Him in us, so we best start acting like Him. People are attracted to love and life, so let’s get out and show people some of it. If you have received Him as your life, then go let it show to those who need it. Jesus said that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but He came to bring life. That is now our mission.

Our son got his cell phone wet, I do not remember how, and I said I would put it in a bag with raw rice. He, not being the most patient type, doubted it would work, so he asked me to find a different phone on Ebay. I did and before it arrived, his old phone was working again. Rice also worked for our new electronic ‘key’ for our car. It went through the washer, in rice overnight or two, and it works as good as always. Yes, the car is a ‘rice burner’
