    Pt 4.
    “We are called to do what is necessary to get people Saved. Do you allow dishonest people to dishonor the Gospel and the cause of Christ if it is easily within your power to set them right? No! You must choose your battles carefully in this world, but it can be done. And should be done. Others are listening to your testimony and if you don’t even know what you believe and why, then what message does that send to those listening? What message does that send to those on the fence?

    Why should a person listen to you if you have no real idea of what you are talking about. While they might realize you are sincere, they will pick up on your ignorance of God’s Word if you are ignorant of God’s Word.

    Yes, sometimes the best testimony is to keep your yap shut. However, we Christians tend to do that far, far more often than we should. Indeed, the problem is usually Christians NOT speaking up, even when they d—–d well should. When the Holy Spirit is burning within you, telling you to speak up, there is a reason.

    If you “agree to disagree” with those who lie to your face about who Jesus was and what He did, is Christ honored by that?

    What do those around you think of that?

    Think about that.

    Choose your battles, carefully, though.”

    Pt 3

    “”Love” is not an excuse to allow evil to thrive. Nor is it acting in love to allow a person to believe a lie and be damned for Eternity! If a person wants to believe the lie after you’ve told them the truth, at least you’ve done your duty. That was much of the prophet Ezekiel’s job— to be a Watchman and tell his people the truth.

    You generally don’t reach dishonest people by “loooooove.” They love themselves. They rationalize and otherwise lie to themselves, trying convince themselves that they don’t need God or that a “loving God” won’t send them to hell. Or they believe some other lie that will ultimately send them to hell. Dishonest people are exactly that— dishonest.

    It often requires the true stakes of their existence— that of going to hell for eternity— being told to them to get their attention. As an example, a friend once told me of a man who had been told the Gospel, but was still vascillating. Then a Christian bluntly asked him if he’d chosen heaven or hell. That was what it took to get that man’s attention and he got saved.

    Indeed, it was that very fear of hell for eternity that caused me to look at my life and to accept Christ. I love Christ now, but initially I made that decision to get Saved out of a rational, reasonable and healthy fear for what would happen if I didn’t get Saved. I didn’t want to go to hell.

    Jesus Christ got my attention that way.

    That is God acting in love: to use what was necessary to get me Saved!”

    Pt 2.

    (It’s been so long since I paid any attention to The Blaze, that I’d forgotten the arbitrary and capricious character limit for comments.)

    “Emotionalism without truth/facts is the province of the Socialists and the Atheists. Leave that kind of thing to them.

    Some try to justify letting lies stand with looooooove. It’s not acting in love to let a lie about the basics of salvation stand and thus let a person go to hell, is it?

    One wonders if this false “loooove” kick is why so much of the nation is no longer believers. Think it’s any coincidence that when Fire and Brimstone, plus the Love of God— BOTH were taught up into the 1950s— were taught in churches, most of the nation believed?

    Now it’s rare that the hellacious eternal consequences of refusing Christ’s call are spoken of in sermons— and most of the nation is going to Hell.

    No coincidence, there. Funny, too, how those who speak so much of “love” seem to have the least of it.

    God LOVES us, there is no disputing that. But it’s doing no one any favors to not tell them the stakes of not choosing to be Saved by Christ.

    Those consequences are eternal.
    When I was a kid, a pastor visited my church and he said, “I would rather scare the hell out of a person, than for them to end up there.”

    Being offended or scared is nothing compared to the fear and horror a person will be feeling at the White Throne Judgement, when they are before the Lord and thrown into eternity in the Lake of Fire.”

  • June 8, 2015 at 10:14pm

    It wasn’t until the 1950s when fire and brimstone was abandoned for the current “love kick” that most Americans became unSaved.

    I wrote extensively about it, but here is part of it from one of my books:

    “Some of most learned men of our world have been Chrisitians.Until the end of the 20th Century, most scientists usually believed in God at a minimum and many were born-again believers. Even today it is still very common among scientists to believe in God— who better to know the lie of Evolution and similar doctrines than those studying the sciences?

    Hand-in-hand with the “no argue” garbage is the idea some pastors and teachers today have where we are supposed to just “looove,” but to not actually know anything about the Bible, or to be able to answer questions about it. Isn’t this counterproductive?

    Doesn’t it cause some to fall into Satan’s hands?

    Are we all supposed to become idiots?

    Isn’t that what the Socialists and Atheists claim we Christians are?

    Why the attack on Christian intellectuals by those calling themselves Christians? It makes no sense.

    When I was in college, various campus Christian organizations sought to teach students how to witness and how to debate. How to defend the Bible. Are we supposed to abandon reason, abandon apologetics, abandon defending the Gospel, merely because the Enemy wants an easy mark and some pastors have bought into that line of “reasoning?”

    Perish the thought…”

    You just hit the heart of it: a state can’t make legal what the congress has made illegal.

    Given that potheads lie, I’d guess that he’s been charged. He’s just trying to get sympathy by lying, if typical.
    ——————

    I’ll be blunt, blaze: Don’t ever publish another sympathetic article about a drug dealer growing a substance that killed more than 20,000 in my state during legalization and ruined the lives of most women my age in my state and disfigured God only knows how many kids here.

    It’s like saying that you sympathize with the drug cartels.

    To hell with the Blaze. I’ve had it with this crap.

    What’s sad is that most of these protesters are dead men walking because of HIV. With it already at least in the 40% officially, and probably much higher in reality, one wonders why these people don’t do something good with the rest of their lives, instead of seeking to hurt non-blacks in the nation.

    M-14. Last of our battle rifles, refined from past models.

    That is one of the great pities of our time. Prior to last year’s concussion or accident that mangled his grey matter, Putin was largely the mover in dismantling the communist system and building a free market economy.

    The Russians have never said what happened to putin to so completely change the way he acts, but when the ukraine nonsense first started, Merkel called him and afterwards said he sounded completely out of it.

    Oddly enough, Slovakia and the Czech republic split because of communist weapons.

    During the bad old days, since Slovakia had no industry, the Soviets located a large number of military manufacturing plants there. From tanks to rifles.

    When the Velvet Revolution happened, Vaclav Havel promised to get rid of those plants. Trouble is, they were essentially Slovakia’s only industry.

    And so they split.

    They’d still be together if they’d phased them out instead. Machining like that can make a lot of things other than weapons, but it would take time to shift over.

    When I saw the page today with the garish ads, I wondered why the Blaze wants their pages to look like a supermarket tabloid.

    My first thought on seein the women was: given how good most Russian women look, how’d they pick two homely women?

    Not very nice, maybe, but I’ve never met nor seen Russian women that looked like these two.

    True. It’s main problem is that it’s a spray and pray weapon. It’s interesting that Kalazhnikov didn’t try to make it accurate like the Sturmgewehr that it was designed from.

    The Koreans took the AK and the M-16, using the best of both. Made for a strange looking gun (Daewoo, but I don’t remember the designation.) but it’s accurate and durable.

    Solomon was a bitter old man by the time he wrote Ecclesiastes. He’d tried sex, money, building, and knowledge to fill his life and found it “vanity”.

    He also instituted the apostasy that characterized Israel until now. While they’d had periods of rebellion against God before that, Solomon adding his wives religions to Israel caused most of Israel for the next 3000 years to rebel against God. We usually think of it has happening during Christ’s time, but the rebellion was long entrenched by then with a few reforms like Josiah’s (which didn’t last), otherwise they might have recognized the Messiah. As it is, Isaiah said He’d be rejected and he was by most of Israel.

    It wasn’t until the end of the 1700s that there was something truly new under the sun— steam power (Hero made a steam-powered toy in the 1st century b.c., but it wasn’t used for anything except entertainment), which meant for the first time that human muscle or animal muscle or water or wind was used to move things.

    Given how NBC and some of the other networks are trying to create a race war, it may not be long before we have bigger things to worry about than TV

    About four years ago, I was watching a Criminal Minds and thought “what kind of a mind could think of this kind of thing? Some hollywood sick fantasy” and stopped watching almost all TV.

    I’d previously watched a couple of other crime shows. I quit watching CSI NY when they had a satanic coven with most of the garbage cleaned up, and called them “vampires”. They had a girl be possessed and acted like is was a good thing. And to top it off, the cops took the side of the satanists, despite what the crimes done to people in the show. Talk about selective application of the law.. That was it for me.

    CSI Miami got silly. Stuff like exploding a can of paint in the microwave? Or using three whole cylinders of Halon to smother people in multistore building, despite an ambient air volume and HVAC system that would never have let it get to even minor concentrations?

    TV got both evil and dumb. I stopped watching.

    Then last year an oldies station came in. Before METV’s translator quit a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed at how good the quality of writing was for programs from the 1960s and 1970s like Mission Impossible (sure, not realistic, but fun to watch) and Adam 12 were. (That one was so accurate that it was actually used for training films.)

    Part of the family still watches NCIS and I’m starting to think the entire purpose of the show is to get people used to breaking and entering committed by people with no jurisdiction (habeas corpus is still in effect.)

    Even before that, you had the media actively in a nazi role. “Bush lied, people died” and the daily body count. Despite the chemical weapons that showed up in Libya’s arsenal, Syria’s arsenal, 20 tons in terrorist hands near Amman, etc. Plus more than 400,000 in mass graves to date in Iraq from Saddam’s activities.

    Compare it to Bosnia, which actually was a lie. There was no massacre of civilians found. Only 3 small “mass graves” in the entire country. A lot of Serbs were killed for nothing.

    It’s interesting how much flak I used to get during the Bush administration because I analyzed the international socialists like the Democrats and compared them with their national socialists cousins of 1919-1945.

    And when they dropped incrementalism in 2009 and started pushing everthing from homosexuality and pedophilia, to cutting the number of employed from 200+ million to 114 million by last July, it still didn’t get many people’s attention.

    One still sees in comment rooms people who blame everyone but the Democrat/nazi party.

    They are literally the same type of people who supported nazism in more than a dozen countries prior to WWII. It’s forgotten the nazis were voted in in 1932.

    Big problem is this pastor doesn’t appear to be saved.

  • December 2, 2014 at 7:42pm

    It’s truly sad, but the same people who got into most mainstream churches and seminaries in the 1960s also iniltrated most black denominations.

    Most black pastors are not Saved, and thus not Christians as defined by the Bible.

    Even worse, many preach “black liberation theology” which amouts to a cult of race hatred against all races except black.

    In 1960, like other Americans, most blacks were believers. Today most are not. A few are keeping the faith alive and they are some of the greatest people you will ever meet, but they are only a remnant of what used to be the black churches in America.

    A pastor at a church I used to go to committed adultery.

    What’s nonsensical is the church didn’t seem to wonder why his wife suddenly left him.

    At some point his victims are going to say something and it’s not going to be pretty.

    re: booger

    Being a non-profit, normally no person has liability for the debt, as peculiar as that sounds. When the np goes out of business, so to speak, the debts are serviced by liquidating the assets of the np itself. If the debts are severe, it’s chapter 7 bankruptcy.

    For example, the board that I serve on for a church camp is not liable if something dire happened to crash the debt load, such as the economy going completely. (Until I took sick this year, I was doing the water testing and making sure the water was good. Almost distilled pure, so it usually is an easy task. The paperwork is often annoying, but not that bad.) But the camp’s buildings, the equipment, vehicles, etc. would be sold to pay the debt. In our case, since the land is not owned by the camp, the land itself would not be sold, but the church in this article, it would likely be.
