#391526 Sermon Supoenaes

Posted by HappyChristian on 16 October 2014 - 01:29 PM

Romans 1 brings them into veracity for the Christian (for those who think they only apply to the Jews).

Sure she is. And the Constitution. And the TX constitution.  But that doesn't matter to her. 

 

In her backpedaling, she is trying to make it seem that there is only a little that they want...but get the proverbial nose in the tent...

Yeah, surprisingly enough. Even though mulsims are anti-gay to the point of murdering them.

 

The mayor is backing off now.  I think they were surprised at the uproar.

#391423 And Ye Shall Be Unto Me A Kingdom Of Priests, And An Holy Nation.

You cannot rightly divide when you parse and pick what you want to apply to your life.  ALL scripture means all of it. Not just the ones you want. Don't like it? Cut Peter, James, Hebrews out of your Bible.  

 

The gospel is the gospel. Only one way of salvation. Jesus.  Twist scripture to say otherwise and call it rightly dividing - it's still twisting.

Someone on Facebook posted that all of the pastors should sign a Bible and send it in to the mayor with a note that their sermons come from there and for her to read it to find out...

 

No way should they comply.




#391402 And Ye Shall Be Unto Me A Kingdom Of Priests, And An Holy Nation.

Posted by HappyChristian on 15 October 2014 - 09:21 AM

Paul is not the only one God used to pen scripture.  And God did not include the epistles of Peter simply for the Jews.  I'm getting kind of tired of people who try to intimate that there is scripture that doesn't apply to Christians.  God very clearly says "ALL scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

 

Please note that God used Paul to write those words. Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles, but the words God had him pen are for any - Jew or Gentile - who gets saved. Just as the words God had Peter pen are for any - Jew or Gentile - who gets saved. ALL scripture. Not just Pauline epistles.  Shame on those who would limit the efficacy and reach of God's Word.

#391313 Are You Surprised About This?

Posted by HappyChristian on 14 October 2014 - 03:28 PM

Had to do a double take on the LBJ reference -- my mind registered it as the Johnson family (Lyndon Baines, Lady Bird, Luci Baines and Lynda Bird).  I know, Lady Bird's name was actually Claudia -- now I'm REALLY showing my age.

Mine, too... :ROFL:

I hear the sounds of ancient witchcraft warming up again.

Totally inappropriate. Knock it off.

I like rain. I even like storms, as long as they don't include tornadoes.  :uhhh:

Tornado didn't hit, thankfully. It's raining right now, but it's not lashing. Just steady. Kind of comforting.  It's going to be raining for 3 days.

You brought it on yourself because you kept bringing calvinism into the picture.  You attacked, and then claimed others were attacking you.  Your posts certainly did not come across as wanting to engage in evangelism and theology, but rather pushing calvinism, expressly against warnings not so to do.  prophet predicted nothing (even if you and he thought he did)...had you read board rules you would have understood what would happen.




#391025 Prayer

Posted by HappyChristian on 13 October 2014 - 10:05 AM

Has no one here experienced God answering their prayers?  I most certainly have!  In many ways, too many to list.  Sometimes the answer has been no, sometimes yes. But always an answer!

 

Has no one seen God working things together for good?  Yes, I have - as I'm sure anyone else who is saved has, truthfully, even if they don't answer the question.  One example is from when my Dad was sick with cancer.  He had brain surgery in early July (2011). I was able to go up there for two weeks to help my Mom with my Grandma (who was heading for her 102nd b'day in November).  Two weeks with one of the most precious people on earth to me, as well as time with my folks).  Four months later I was back...for my grandmother's funeral. She had fallen, broken her hip, and passed from pneumonia.  I spent 3 weeks there that time, helping where I could, spending time with my folks again.  And then 4 months later, I was back up there. This time for my dad's funeral.  How precious it is to me to know that God worked all of that, even in the midst of stress and sorrow, for me to spend time with very special loved ones whom He knew He was going to be bringing home.  

 

Has no one noticed the protection of God?  Oh, yes. More than once in my life.  Sometimes looking back on situations I have to ask myself, "how in the world...?" and the only answer is God.

 

The provision of God?  Yep. God provides. Many times above our needs.

 

God shutting and opening doors? Well, here you might not agree with me. I'm not a real believer in "open" or "closed" doors. I believe that God leads us to do as He desires us to do, placing those desires in us to do so (if we are right with Him, of course).  And that we are to do what He leads us to do - even if we have to climb through a window, as it were...

 

Larry, there are times when I feel woefully inadequate in my prayers. I don't know just what to pray for or about. In such times I admit those things to God and ask that His Spirit would intercede and that God would act in accord with what's really needful in accord with His will.

 

When it comes to confidence in prayer, I'm confident that God hears my prayers and uses them in accord with His will. How that all works, I really don't know, but it does, just as God says.

Recently someone said to me that their faith was on the line, because they believed God was going to do something, and they were certain of it because they wanted it so badly and isn't that proof that God should do it...

 

My answer to this person was that God is not a slot machine.  When we pray, we have to remember that He works things out for our good and His glory...not for our desires. Now, that has to be tempered with the fact that often God will lay desires/burdens upon us for which He wants us to pray and we will see the answers we want.  But we have to realize that "no" and "wait" are also answers.




#391023 Questions For Ifb On Several Issues

Indeed, iron does sharpen iron; however, it does not happen when iron is banging against iron.

Post.of.the.year!!   :clapping:

 

Thread is closed. For promoting calvinism against specific instruction not to do so (even posting it as an "innocent" question is still promoting it).
