    Welcome back!
    I'll be praying regarding the church in Connecticut.

    Exodus 3:13
    And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

    Many judges have pointed out for years that if homosexual "marriage" were to be made law that would open the floodgates to every other deviant sort of "marriage" to eventually become legal. This is why polygamists, pedophiles, literal animal 'lovers', and others have long supported the homosexual cause.

    Due to the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo I asked around about that. Other than blank stares and wild guesses, the best two answers I received were from older ladies. One thought it must have something to do with a battle with American Indians near a Waterloo, Iowa. The other was very confident that it was all about a hit song from ABBA in the 1970s (their song "Waterloo").

    It's been too long since I've seen it to offer any details. Typical of David Barton is to narrowly focus on the good points of something he wants to promote while making sure to leave out the rest of the story. It's not so much that what he presents isn't always true, it's that it's presented in a manner to skew how one views it.
    This is just a simplistic example, and not something from Barton:
    Say a person wants to make French slavery in Haiti seem like a good thing for the slaves. This person looks through the historical records, finds three French slaves who spoke well of their time in slavery and of their masters.
    Now, those three accounts are historically accurate, they are true, but do they present the overall truth of the matter? If the person simply puts those three accounts forth in their story on French slavery in Haiti that would give the skewed view that the French must have been wonderful slave holders and their slaves pleased to belong to them.
    If you are interested, you might do a search for articles detailing the bad history Barton puts forth. There are many out there.
    On the other hand, perhaps the fact Barton is endorsed by Kenneth Copeland will mean something to you.

    4th of July
    Independence Day...but how many Americans even know what that's all about and what it means?
    Has anyone seen some of the videos of Americans being asked questions regarding Independence Day in America and they have no clue what it's about? So many don't even know who America gained independence from, can't name even one signer of the Declaration of Independence, don't know when this occurred, don't seem to know much of anything other than the 4th of July is called Independence Day and they get to celebrate...but they don't know what they are celebrating!
    These videos show that it's not just people around here who have no clue about history, their own country, holidays or much of anything else.
    Some think we gained our independence in the 1940s or 1960s. Some think we gained our independence from "the south" or that Lincoln signed the Declaration of Independence.
    I've spoken with people who actually thought Hitler had been an American president, have no idea who Stalin was, think Reagan was one of the early presidents, have never heard of the Spanish-American War, don't know who fought who or where in WWI, can't name a single Vice President in their lifetime, can't even name who was president during their lifetime, confuse the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution (Bill of Rights) with the 10 Commandments and most can't name more than one or two of either...
    Many Americans can quote lines from their favorite movies, retell entire episodes of their favorite TV shows, list the songs on top of the charts, cite statistics from their favorite sport, but delve into anything deeper than that and they are lost.

    Exodus 3:9
    Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.

    The lack of accuracy comes in the form of very selective choices of that which to point out and that which to leave out which gives a very distorted and inaccurate view.
  10. John81 added a post in a topic R.C. Sproul's Dispensationalist View...   

    In my readings of "older" Dispensationalists I really only read their sermons or writings on Dispensationalism and can't recall reading anything pertaining to the question at hand.
    I know there are a number of contemporary Dispensationalists which what Sproul said could fit; but at the same time, there are also many that wouldn't.
    Does anyone know from where "easy believism" originated? If it originated in the US, which I from what I've read it may have, considering the large number of Dispensationalists in America it's possible that came from those who were Dispensationalists. Even if that's so, it doesn't mean the Dispensational teaching fostered easy believism or directly led to it.

  14. John81 added a post in a topic R.C. Sproul's Dispensationalist View...   

    While the wording might have been a bit different, I've heard Charles Stanley and a few others say this. They claim that other than salvation having taken place, no other changes are evident. Furthermore, they claim one can be saved and continue to live like the devil for however long they live and they will be in heaven just anyone else who is saved.
    It's not a new teaching, but I do believe it's a very dangerous one.

    A "real atheist" would be someone who doesn't believe God exists. Some people actually believe that, and a whole host of other things that aren't true.
