#392320 ‘There Is No God But Allah': Father Pulls Son From School Over Pro-Islam...

Posted by John81 on 28 October 2014 - 07:59 PM

The "universal god" that people claim is the same god of all religions would have to have a multiple personality disorder, along with a host of other disorders, and be one that nobody could trust since such a god has told different people he's much different than he's told others, and he calls certain people to do things contrary to what he tells others, and tells some people one way to get to heaven, others another, and others yet that there is no heaven.

 

The reality is, our God, the One True God as revealed in our KJB, is consistent, perfect and totally trustworthy, unlike any other "god" of any other religion and unlike any concept of a "universal god".

Here, a textbook can claim Allah is the only god, but if a textbook were to be found in a public school declaring that Jesus is the only way there would be lawsuits, mass media hysteria, political intrigue and verbal assaults galore against Christianity.




#392284 Way Of Life - Preacher Says "the Brethren" Are Galled With Brother C...

A shame this has to continue this way. I suspect that many who accuse Cloud of pride, get that from such letters as this, when, in order to justify his knowledge in the subject, he tells them his experience and studies and such, which, if it were done any other way, would seem like pride. However, I don't see it that way, I see it as him listing his credentials, much as Paul did when he spoke of his earthly credentials, the stock of benjamin, circumcised the 8th day, etc. he wasnt lifting himself up in these things, but showing that he, of all people, understood the Jews and their religion, so he was the perfect person, as it were, to preach to the Jews.

 

I have some disagreements with David Cloud, but I absolutely agree with his assessment of the musical issues he deals with often, and we have much history and proof in churches who were once solid, but in allowing more and more worldly music in, they have since left IFB and become rock and roll concernt churches that teach false doctrines and licentiousness. Its not like it has never happened. They are allowing fire in their bosom-they will get burned.

Wonder when she'll demand that all the mosque's imams turn over their sermons. 

 

My guess...never.

I was going to join the local procrastinator's club, but figured I'd wait til a later date.

I was going to be perfunctory, but I really didn't care and lost interest.

Sorry to see him go. Sorry to see this site turned over to Calvinists to spin their tales also. Disappointed nobody else cares. Losing good people for those who do nothing but cause confusion.




#389568 Hypocrisy Left And Right

Posted by HappyChristian on 30 September 2014 - 11:57 AM

Something that most people don't understand about checks and balances is that, yes, it is designed to show that no branch of the federal government is more powerful than another...but We the People are to be the enforcers of it - in effect, the actual check and balance to the federal government.  And We the People have not been doing our job. Most especially Christians.  Sad, really, the way we've not been the right kind of stewards of the gift God gave us in this country.

Right in time for Korea's fall harvest holiday, which is akin to our Thanksgiving!

 

Rejoicing with you!!




#384347 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by GraceSaved on 27 August 2014 - 10:49 PM

I didn't end up going to the Tue. night Bible study at their house (I was sick) and I haven't been back to the church. I sent them a couple emails but they haven't responded so I am taking it in a way that I was given a way out, if that makes sense. However, I did visit a church tonight that a friend recommended and guess what they talked about??? Eternal security!!! :-) And in the children's class they are studying on choosing wise words and having them memorize Proverbs 15:1 which we've been currently teaching our kids at home. Coincidence? I don't think so.


#384281 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by weary warrior on 27 August 2014 - 05:39 PM

To answer the OP, and not throw gas on the fire of doctrinal discussion...

 

I was raised in an IFB church by my IFB preacher Dad my whole life, saved at the age of 5 and surrendered to preach at 14. I have been in the ministry for twenty years, many of those years as a missionary, a pastor or an assistant pastor. I tell you this only to define and illustrate that I have been on both sides of the pulpit extensively. Through my experience ... and that's all it is, I would recommend you quietly find a church to fellowship with that agrees with you fully on the fundamentals. And my Sister, may I gently say that continuing to Bible Study with those who you are unable to worship with will not turn out to be...profitable? For either of you. The christian life is hard enough in these last days without you taking on a burden God has neither called nor asked you to carry. A pastor and his wife will believe what they have chosen to believe, and I'm pretty sure God does not call upon you to break down that wall.

 

It is just my experience, not scripture, but my experience has been hard won through many tears and scars. If it helps you, I rejoice.

Oh, i believe the sons of God mentioned in Job were created beings. I just am not convinced they are angels.

I'll be in prayer concerning this, you and your pastor. I've added this to my urgent and continual prayer list.




#382153 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by Standing Firm In Christ on 14 August 2014 - 12:02 PM

I fear for such church assemblies. They serve and worship a god of empty promises, a god whose word is not to be trusted.


#382150 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by GraceSaved on 14 August 2014 - 11:32 AM

P.S. I would like to reiterate my above statement. My goal is not to teach anyone but to discuss and determine in my own mind what I believe scripture has to say on this topic. Also, I do not wish, at anytime, for myself or my children to be taught otherwise if this topic comes up in some later sermon.
