Recipe for disaster i suspect. In all relationships, the one who shows the least interest is always in control. Even in this post women's lib culture, when women chase men the men tend to start running away faster. Back off and let him come to you. If he doesn't then you have your answer. Might seem a hard idea now but will save you pain later.
I think one point MC is making is there are some believers who will not partake in the Lord's Supper out of confusion over sins of the mind committed even the day of. Particularly if they haven't had a chance to talk to the Lord and get them right thoroughly enough in their minds. I personally haven't seen anyone refused by the church to partake however. I am referencing the Christians themselves declining out of conscience. Based on the context of I Cor 5: 9-13 Jim mentioned are in keeping with outward sinful practices shamelessly among brethren and not hidden sins of the heart. Face it, we are all fornicators in the mind from time to time, more so covetous and idolaters. The context Scriptures surrounding these passages are of outward public displays of sinful practices.
I can't believe any reasonable man could waste God's time and money watching millionaires play a children's game when they should be floppin whoppers at burger king in all fairness- this goes even MORE for football except 90% of those players would be in prison and not burger king. Good clean fun....I suppose but make no mistake, the countless hours of precious time you waste watching this dribble will all be for naught in eternity and you will regret it. Hey but I guess you could be watching porn instead so enjoy.
? Why would you waste one breath preaching this on the street? Seems a waste to me that a man consecrated enough to regularly preach to strangers would preach sighted subjects to the blind. How would you expect them to understand anything in God's Word before the Gospel?
These so called Bible based movies give me chills down my spine. I decided to try a couple like "Noah" and "Exodus" and they were as wrong as two boys kissing. I walked out of there feeling like I needed a shower. Satan loves him some roman paganism and hollywood.
Unfortunately the vast majority of shyster's followers are female. Since Eve's deception it is obvious that no amount of picket signs/protests/marches for women's rights will change that gullability and satan preys on it constantly. The few men in these crowds throwing money at these charlitans are the henpecked husbands of these women. And yes olsteen is a shyster and no brother of mine and certainly this OP shyster isn't either, even worse. Show me a couple who follow these types and I will show you a house ruled by the woman in every aspect.
Makes sense I can see no mention of any type of human government in Scripture as endorsed by God. It is what man makes it to be and the Lord allows it all to run its course as with everything of the world. He endorses none and intervenes in none.
Hate to rehash the same reproofs to Bible blending but anyway: certainly we don't sacrifice animals to cover our sins or have rabbis wash our pots and pans or avoid eating shellfish, bacon, etc.
Or if you prefer, certainly we don't feel the need to give all that we have to the poor and follow the Lord as the rich young ruler in order to be born again?
2Tim3:16 is another passage frequently misinterpreted and misquoted as in this post. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Nowhere in this verse does the Lord even imply that all Scripture is for all peoples of all time periods to apply at all times to their lives. For our instruction-yes, for our application - hardly.
