#392296 ‘There Is No God But Allah': Father Pulls Son From School Over Pro-Islam...

Posted by heartstrings on 28 October 2014 - 12:39 PM

One of my sheep-buying customers told me that "we worship the same God". Either he hasn't read his Koran or he was telling a lie........

 

Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

 

Quran (9:14) - "Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people."

 

 

 

....... because our God says 

43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Amen! I'd pull my kid too. We homeschooled ours and I would highly recommend it.

I was going to be perfunctory but my curiosity got the best of me and I looked up the definition.

People like that despise the Constitution and will disregard it anytime they think they can get a way with it.

I used to be bad to play marbles for keeps until the day in fifth grade when a little Mexican boy took every last one I had, including my "lucky" green one, on the playground in grammar school. That was when I lost all my marbles and quit gambling on the same day.

Dumb: (Matt. 9:32, 33; Luke 11:14; Matt. 12:22) used to mean "unable to speak" and I'm sure these folks meant it that way. Why make such a big deal out of it? Is it worth another lawsuit to help make the cost of plane tickets go up? http://abcnews.go.co...-and-dumb-note/

#389858 Will These Steps To Salvation Save You?

Posted by heartstrings on 02 October 2014 - 11:05 AM

There are no "steps". God gives three conditions;

 

Believe all three. in your heart, and salvation can take place in a split second. You must believe that you are a dirty, rotten, wicked hopeless, helpless sinner (sin). That Jesus is pure and holy, and that He loves you so much that he paid the ultimate price for you (righteousness) that God is all powerful, that you are headed for Hell and deserve it (judgment).

 

it's simple; turn against sin and self and Hell to Jesus......in simple, childlike faith.




#389575 Hypocrisy Left And Right

Posted by heartstrings on 30 September 2014 - 01:34 PM

One of the Muslim guys who bought sheep on my farm, guy is from Turkey, asked me why there are so many different churches here. He couldn't understand why everyone wasn't the same. I couldn't think of anything to say at the time. But the other day, during preaching, our pastor was preaching on false doctrine slipping into the churches, cults etc and it hit me: (No I wasn't daydreaming)We have so many denominations, churches, cults and religions because we are FREE. Try to have a different religion, especially real Christianity, in some of those Muslim countries.




#385976 Doing Business With Achmed

Posted by heartstrings on 05 September 2014 - 03:09 PM

Just sold the last 10 of our 2014 rams to Achmed from Tallahassee. Actually he and his companion are from Palestine. So far I have met 4 Arabs/Muslims from Palestine, 2 from Uzbekistan, one from Turkey, and one from Yemen. Achmed just purchased the sheep and hauled them home on a pickup truck so there was no ritual slaughter on my property and no prayers to "Allah" ; at least not out loud. I like it much better this way and it marks another 'milestone' in that this  chunk of money will finish paying off the new fences.. :) This week I also turned "Big Man" the ram in with the ewes to get the 2015 crop in the works.

#384260 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by heartstrings on 27 August 2014 - 04:05 PM

Ok

At the 43.03 mark he says "if you will pray a prayer like that and mean it......."

 

First of all he said "prayer" and he gave the stipulation that you must "mean it".   He's not telling anyone to say certain words because he says a prayer "Like that" . He is just showing you how to come to God and he's showing you the issues to be dealt with in coming to God and I noticed he mentioned these three things... "I'm a sinner" "I'm lost" "Jesus you died to save me" Those three issues are the three that the Holy Spirit deals with the heart: sin, righteousness, and judgement.

 

Sin.......I'm a low down wicked sinner

Righteousness......God is Love and Holy and righteous and he displayed all of that in Jesus and on Calvary.

Judgement.....I'm on my way to Hell for all eternity and I deserve it.




#384257 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by heartstrings on 27 August 2014 - 03:20 PM

Hi Heartstrings

 

In the post above, you acuse Covenanter of falsely claiming that Adrian Rogers included, in Covenanter's words, a "salvation prayer" in his 'Disgrace to Grace' sermon. You say that "all (you) found" when you listened to a sermon of the same name was some other contents, the obvious implication being that there was no reference to a salvation/sinner's prayer in Rogers' sermon at all.

 

Now that Covenanter has indeed posted it up and even SFIC (who earlier 'liked' your post) has acknowledged that there is indeed reference to something like a salvation/sinner's prayer at the end of the sermon (though SFIC says he thinks it isn't actually one), do you still want to claim that the sermon contains no such thing?

 

I've now listened to that section (and I'm going to listen to the rest because it sounds like a good sermon--haven't heard of Adrian Rogers before) and I can certainly see which bit Covenanter was talking about.

Brother Alimantado;

I don't recall disputing that there was "no salvation prayer". Perhaps you could point that out? The issue I had with Covenanter was this part...
 

A dangerous argument for eternal security was put forward by the late Adrian Rogers e.g. in his sermon "Lot - A disgrace to grace" in which he [Adrain Rogers] argued that if you have gone through the "salvation prayer" on the lines of: "Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, & I believe you died for my sins, so I can be forgiven" then you are truly saved. You can live a filthy rotten life (like Lot), but you can't lose your salvation.

 

I tried to show Covenanter that the whole message was about living right and not being a "disgrace to grace". In the message, Adrian Rogers merely used Lot as an illustration of a "just man", a real saint of God who chose the world and thereby as a consequence lost his family. His life, testimony, and posterity were indeed wrecked because of his own decision to live for the World. But God will not allow one of His own to live a "filthy rotten life" and get away with it. 

 

May I elaborate more? The Bible speaks of others, besides Lot, who did not "persevere" in their Godly living including the man in 1 Corinthians who Paul said had "his father's wife" and was about to be turned over the Devil for the "destruction of the flesh" that the "spirit might be saved". In other words, this dude was committing a "sin unto death". God has not made us automatic "perseverers" evidenced by the man in 1 Corinthians 5: Just as surely as you have a choice to choose Eternal Life AKA Jesus Christ, you also have a choice to live for him in this life. God will not make us live for him, but He will make us wish we had....like old Brother Lot learned too late..

 

Covenanter, If you believe on Jesus in your heart, no matter what "words" you may "repeat" or come up with on your own or utter none at all, you are saved. As sure as I'm breathing that's the kind of salvation that Adrian Rogers preached. Even a person with ALS, like Steven Hawking, whose "trapped" body can do no more than twitch it's cheek, if he truly repented in his heart, turned to Jesus from sin and self, the Holy Ghost would come into that man and he could be gloriously saved...saved for eternity. Could he later sin? Yes. Because we are all still sinners, we all have "the sin that so easily besets us" and we all have the propensity to "love this present world". 

 

Listening to the sermon again.........




#382214 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by heartstrings on 15 August 2014 - 10:20 AM

Covenantor, Would you mind posting a link to that "Lot, a disgrace to grace" sermon? All I found was "Don't be a Disgrace to Grace" in which the WHOLE MESSAGE is exhorting born again Christians to live right and separate from the world and worldly lusts. The message also speaks of different Jesus's which the world loves, and the righteous Jesus which the world hates. Adrian Rogers preached the Jesus who loved all mankind, gave himself for everyone. He was a Godly, sound Bible preacher and YOU don't like him because he plowed down the row of the Calvinist/reformed. Truly born again saved persons, indwelled with the Holy Ghost, CAN fall into sin so bad that God will KILL them...he chastens his own. Furthermore, YOU are presently in sin yourself not only because you teach false doctrine, but because you are falsely accusing a man of God.

Please post it, thanks.
