    Calvinism ignores free will, using terms like “irresistable grace”.

    They ignore the Great Commission, even going so far as to claim that a person is sinning by teaching others as Christ ordered us to.

    Modern Calvinist denominations have mostly gone further by becoming Emergent, where the pastors and most parishoners are not Saved and the Gospel is not taught.

    Not quite correct. Most GenX men in the region have been under attack by their women since junior high school and most of them stuck to their guns. Even today, almost all Bible-believing churches in the region have 90+% males in the GenX group.

    WE SAID NO to the feminist line. Which is why most of us didn’t marry.

    Here are a couple of my analyses on the matter:

    https://www.holodiscustechnical.com/documents/open_letter_to_christian_leaders.html

    https://www.holodiscustechnical.com/documents/why_so_few_honest_critiques_of_feminism.html

    “When you have a clear choice of doing right or doing as the world says, it’s normally been men who said “no” to the world.

    And it’s cost us dearly.

    I’m sorry that pastors and other Christian leadners had their heads in the sand for the last 30+ years as to what’s been going on, but it’s only recently that they have finally and belatedly noticed what their parishoners have had to deal with since the mid 1980s.

    The result of persecution has been a large group of tough-as-nails Christian men. We can be shattered, we can be killed, but the world cannot bend us.

    My only real regret is that the women didn’t come with us. Almost every woman who grew up in the church of GenX chose the world.

    21 churches and ministries in different cities told me that.

    Indeed, that is something that pastors haven’t noticed for 30 years.”

    re: ronspeaks

    Unfortunately, he’s right. With a few exceptions like Graham, these people do no show any signs of ever having been Saved. Hinn, Osteen, etc.

    Consider that we ARE to judge good and evil, but it’s our standard that is in question.

    For example, Christ said “Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.” in John 7:24

    Galatians 5 19-23:
    “19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

    Matthew 15: 18-20 “18 But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. 20 These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man.””

    Part of being a Christian is confessing our sins. In the last decade, it seems like many pastors are falling from false pride.

    What has become usual, and very tragic is that the typical situation goes like this:

    1. Pastor starts teaching something non-Biblical as Biblical.

    2. God sends fellow pastors, theologians, and laymen to correct the Pastor in love.

    3. Pastor falsepridefully ignores the correction.

    4. Lord disciplines the Pastor.

    5. Pastor ignores the discipline. Claims it’s a test of his faith or a tribulation sent to strengthen him or somesuch.

    6. Lord disciplines the pastor

    7. Pastor starts lashing out at his critics. I’ve heard them call people “dogs” who dared to try to get them to repent and teach the Bible as written.

    8. Lord removes the pastor.

    And all from false pride.

    We’ve had major epidemics among born-again pastors in the last 10+ years:

    1. Making mistakes with the Scripture that a first year Bible student in 1980 would not make.

    2. Refusing to correct those mistakes from false pride.

    Good point. Which people and groups are doing the harassment.

    No doubt that Driscoll did wrong, but are these incidents because of that, or because he’s so hated by the LGBTs?

  • October 23, 2014 at 1:19am

    It could easily be the LGBT lobby, now that they think it’s ok to terrorize pastors.

    You missed what Gonzo said. He was being sarcastic because Beck doesn’t report the garbage that happens in the LDS church.

    There is No way to defend against these type of Terrorist Attacks….
    Unless you Arm the citizens of your country………………

    Absolutely!

    One of the dirty secrets of Canada and western Europe is their 4x to 5x the U.S. violent crime rate. Much ado is made about U.S. crime, but it doesn’t compare. Only a handful of cites here have the rates of violence of Montreal or Ottawa.

    Another is Canada’s banning of Christian TV and radio stations, imprisoning pastors, and declaration of the Bible to be hate speech. These not only violates their own founding documents, but they violates Canada’s signing of the 1948 UN fundamental declaration of human rights.

    I was listening to Growing Thru Grace and the pastor spoke about some of the stuff you mentioned kept you up at night. The pastor said it kept him up.

    This was the broadcast: http://www.growingthrugrace.com/ListenToRadioBroadcast.aspx?ScheduleId=2225

    Something’s really wrong here.

    I prayed about it and I honestly don’t believe she is Saved.

    I would guess that it’s like the typical porn star deception. The person that ages out and then spends years writing books and doing speeches about her porn career in order to make a living.

    The usual scam is to live it up, have her fun, then to “retire” and make a living by telling people what they want to hear about how bad it was. Christians usually just accept it at face value, not realizing it’s yet another career for the porn star, not a real change of heart.

    Porn stars are actors/actresses. They are what the Greeks called hupacrita, from which we get the world hypocrite from. Christ spoke at length about hypocrites.

    I’m sure that some porn stars really do change, but most of them appear to have the “jailhouse conversion” after they’ve had their fun and there is no change of heart. It’s just continuing their acting career by condemning what they in their heart of hearts love to do .

    Considering Oregon lost more than 20,000 people to pot from murders, stoned driving, domestic violence from it’s last legalization, there’s few things scarier than the fools now wanting to make it legal again.

    In the 24 years of “decrininalization” from 1973-1997, Portland went from ~100 homicides to more than 1000 by 1995.

    You have idiots claiming “marijuana doesn’t make you violent” despite the typical 10X increase in violent crime that results.

    Pt .2

    “I guess you can play fast and loose with name accuracy if you are a anthropologist— anthropologists kept writing about the “land bridge” theory long after the archeological evidence indicated a multitude of routes to the Americas. If you want to be accurate, how about Copper Age, Brass Age, Copper-Arsenic Age or just call all of them the Age of Copper Alloys?”

  • [3] October 22, 2014 at 1:39am

    One bit of interest is that the anthropological term “bronze age” is almost completely in error. I wrote this up for National Wave of Foolishness:

    “We have had various ages that are named after materials like Iron or Stone. Some names are wildly inaccurate, such as “The Bronze Age.” If I may chase a rabbit for a moment, I’ll explain that. Tin is required for bronze and tin is found only in a handful of locations of the world in quantity and until the 20th Century almost all tin came from deposits in Cornwall. Much of what is called “bronze” by anthropologists is actually brass or other alloys of copper. Zinc and copper ores frequently occur together, so it was a natural mix. Some ancient foundry equipment could theoretically separate the two metals when the ore was smelted, but why would you want to, given the uses like cups, containers, knives and swords that brass could be used for, which is typically both harder and durable than straight copper? Sulfides are common ores for copper, but also for zinc, lead, antimony, and other metals. If you are a worker in an ancient foundry with such mixed ore, wouldn’t you just use the resulting alloy once it was smelted, vs. trying to separate the individual metals out to get copper. (Unless it was a case like refining silver or gold for purity, which is for a different reason than using a metal for functionality/utility.) I guess you can play fast and loose with name accuracy if you are a anthropologist…”

    I think Godrulz is being sarcastic about how many fools try to disprove the Bible, but the Bible itself is backed up by the science of archaeology itself.

    More than 95% of the locations mentioned in the Bible have been found.

    Christ predicted the fall of Herod’s Temple. In that sense, this is germane to the Bible.

  • [3] October 22, 2014 at 1:30am

    The chief priests, teachers of the law, scribes, etc. saw Christ as a threat. He threatened their power, their incredible wealth, etc. These men knew they were doing wrong, but they loved their power and money.

    They also were wanting the “conquering king” messiah that would liberate them from Rome and rule the world.

    There are two pictures of the Messiah in the old testament. One is the “suffering servant”. The other is the “conquering king.”

    The pharisees, sadducees, etc. wanted the latter, and hated the “suffering servant” Messiah. They wanted power and gold, not to be told they were sinners and to repent. Pride was very much part of the equation.

    In John 8, we are shown just how hard-hearted some of these leaders of the time were. (It says something that Rome considered the Jewish leaders ruthless.) From the context, it appears that some of the leaders set up a situation where they “caught” and adultress (where was the guy? Was he allowed to escape?) These fiends apparently didn’t care if a woman was stoned in their desire to make Christ look bad.

    I’ve put a lot of time into trying to answer some of this stuff. I’ve put a lot of it on my website: http://www.holodiscustechnical.com

    The explanation is in Daniel 2 itself “40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.”

  • [1] October 22, 2014 at 1:06am

    It would be the Fifth. Reich means “kingdom” or “empire.”

    The First Reich was Bismarck’s unification of the German and Prussian states. (The song Germany Over All comes from this period, meaning that Germans should have a Germany that is larger than the individual German states.)

    The Second Reich was the Weimar Republic that was created after Kaiser Wilhelm II’s abdication and exile.

    The Third Reich was the 1930s-45 Germany and its conquered territories.

    The Fourth Reich is the current German representative republic.

    And so the nazi/democrat party creating a new one would have to be at least the Fifth Reich.

    It’s the same time of problem with names as the Jerusalem Temple. People call it the Third temple in Revelation, but that is completely wrong. Solomon built the First Temple. Zerubbabel rebuilt it as the Second Temple. King Herod destroyed the Second Temple, even going so far as to level part of the Temple Mount and replacing the entire foundation. This Third Temple wasn’t even complete when Rome sacked it.

    The Antichrist will allow Israel to build the Fourth Temple that is spoken of in the Tribulation.

    Ezekiel describes a Fifth Temple during the Millennium.

    All it does is add to the body of knowledge we have. Inscriptions indicating the Tenth Legion’s presence have already been found in Jerusalem.
