I would not going as far to say all catholics are not christians. There have been and are many catholics that truly love the Lord. I know there theology is messed up. But they do believe that jesus is Lord. For example i truly believe Mother Teresa was saved and she was a devout catholic.

More testomony:

The wife of one of my reformed christian friends is divorcing him.

She was married before but this is his first time.

Since American law/culture/society is presently geared toward easy
divorce, my friend has little recourse but to "let her go" and claim
the popular reformed escape-clause of "desertion", rather than fight
to try and save his marriage. It's an easy out for him, her, and
current American culture (and, apparently, modern reformed theology!).

I guess my point here is to Walt, Seaton, and my other fellow reformers
is: Try not to spend all your time in scripture, WCF, etc. Don't foret
to take a look at what's going on in the world around you--for this is
where you see scripture--and the lack thereof--applied.

I really think Abigail, Yamil, and similarly aligned folk are onto
something that YOU people are NOT, regarding this whole "divorce" issue.

I also notice that I have a hard time speaking against divorce as it
becomes more popular--like homosexuality, which is much more popular
than when I was a kid, and was then much easier to speak against.

Keep reading the Bible, but THINK about it, too. Please...and make
sure you're not just following other learned theologeons. Think and
pray about these issues yourselves.

I wonder if anyone will take an
umbrella to the prayer meeting???
It seems obvious that God is in
CONTROL and judgement is beginning.
Our country is in a MESS.
Interesting.

Years ago I heard an anecdotal account of evangelist Charles
Grandison Finnie bringing an umbrella to a prayer meeting where
the assembly was praying/appealing to God for rain.

According to the same account, Finnie later chided the assembly
for their lack of faith, as he was the only one who stayed dry
during the rain storm that soon followed his and the assembly's
fervent prayer for rain.

As a beliver of the reformed persuasion I'm no fan of Finnie by
any means, but the story is still interesting...and Dessie's
remark reminded me of it.

I'd heard of Crighton and his book, and where he stands;
but I didn't realize he was originally convinced of global
warming, only to reverse his stance after carefully studying
the issue. If only more people would do this!

No wonder Al Gore blasted him (Crichton) during one of the
many speaches he gave to global-warming acolytes a few months
back.

To Gore, Crighton is not just the enemy, but a traitor as well.

Thanks, Rob.

"Think Tank: Britain 'No Longer Christian'".

We needed a THINK TANK to tell us this??!!

Proof once again that evil begets
stupidity.

Sadly, this guy and his testimony also will just be shoved aside by
our present overwhelmingly powerful environmental interests, here
in the USA.

It's amazing how much clout the environmentalists have--especially
here in California.

We in California have world-class agriculure--especially wines.

We have world-class media production resources (Hollywood, etc.).

We have a rich history of developement starting with the gold rush
of 1849 and culminating with Silicon Valley, Aerospace, Biotech, etc.

And yet not a single one of these great achievements was represented
on our state quarter (each of the 50 U.S. states was recently commemorated
on the reverse of our George Washington quarter-dollar coin with images
pertaining to that state's identity).

Just what was on our California state quarter?

A full-length portrait of John Muir (first president and founder of
the Sierra Club--oldest and most respected environmental organization)
framed by an image of Yosemite National park with a California Condor
flying overhead.

All three are images of conservation and environmentalism!

"A pastor who refused to work with a female minister because of his biblical
convictions has been charged with criminal discrimination by a Finnish court."

So proceeds the age-old confilct between earthly kingdoms and the heavenly
kingdom. As the former becomes apostate at a greater rate than the latter,
things will invariably get ugly, as Pastor Hereford points out in his post.

So far, my own denomination (OPC) is still Biblically male-led, but if this
were to change, as it has in the RCA and so many other denominations, I'll
likely "flee to the mountains"--and form my own local fellowship of like-
minded but, more importantly, BIBLICAL believers.

A ? no disrespect intended, why do you seem to advocate letting children watch tv?
Great question, and one I've thought a
lot about recently.

TV's worse now, if only because it's
more blatant than it was when I was
a kid--when there was at least some
desire (perhaps even a bit of pretense)
toward the things of God in general.

Now, alomst anything goes.

Apart from educational TV (History
Channel, Discovery, and some PBS), it's
hard for me to think of ANYTHING I'd
recommend on TV for our little ones
to watch.

We did not have TV as children; we just

It would be kind of dangerous to let

As far as TV, my son did his homework
while watching and is now a medical
doctor. Something to think about.
My sister did the same thing. She was
valedictorian of her 1974 class of over
400 fellow students, and eventually became
a doctor, graduating from Stanford and U.C.
Irvine, CA...and she did it by doing her
highschool homework while watching TV.

She has thisn amazing ability to focus on
one stream of information while completely
tuning out another in rapid succession,
which sometimes makes it hard to talk
with her, but enabled her to enjoy both
70's TV (which was much cleaner then)
and do well in school at the same time.

Had I been the student here, I might
have asked the professor if I could
burn a copy of the supreme court's
1973 Rov vs. Wade decision instead.

After all, the issue here is what
many people believe to be a physical
demonstration of "free speech", and
not a reflection of this professor's
and his class's liberal views.

My only real direct experience with divorce was having to deal
with those women in my Christian dating club who had been married
before.

After MUCH prayer and meditation (I say "MUCH" because there were
many very desirable divorcees in that club, some of whom were even
interested in me), I concluded that I could NEVER date a divorcee
for fear that I might be obstructing a potential reconciliation--
even after divorce--and I did NOT want to get in God's way if he
were planning that my date would eventually reunite with her ex.

Maybe I was wrong, but at the time, my conscience would not allow
me to persue a divorced woman, regardless of how desirable she was.

Wish I had more time to read the testimonies of those of you
who've experienced divorce and remarriage.

With no divorces in my imediate family I must admit to having
lived a "sheltered life" regarding this issue. God's grace.

A few years ago, I lost an argument with my previous landlords
over this issue. They beat me to death with 1 Cor 7, Matt 19,
and similar passages; but later ended up quickly divorcing
each other a few months later.

Rather than try to save their marriage and fight to make it work,
these people QUICKLY excersized their perceived Biblical authority
to dissolve their relationship and simply moved on with their lives.

Don't know if they've remarried yet, as they claim that "liberty"
as well, but what kind of a Christian testimony is that?

I'm even willing to concede that Walt, Seaton, and others are more
right than I am on this issue; but what disgusts me is when these
perceived marriage-escape-clauses found in the Bible are treated
like a "get out of jail (marriage) free" card by so many who call
themselves Christians but tend to act no different from the rest
of the world.

Just last night I saw a horrendously troubling doccumentary on
The History Channel which detailed the origins and developement
of prison gangs from the 1960s until today.

What REALLY struck me was not the unbelievably incredible wickedness
and ruthlessness of these groups but rather the fact that, considering
the original crimes committed by the vast majority of these people prior
to their incarcerations (including murder, rape, and kidnapping), most
of them would not even be ALIVE today were it not for our increasingly
lenient justice system and it's growing reluctance to excersize the
death penalty when it is clearly called for.

As with the war on terror, I see our culture increasingly beating
itself to death over process issues (what is and is not proper when
killing or "torturing") to the point that any favorable outcome will
be jeapardized.

Be careful, Walt.

God, Himself may be a divorced person (as one of my own OPC
pastors was only so pleased to remind me), but we are NOT
God.

Therefore your argument from Jeremiah does NOT apply to
the issue being discussed here.

In fact, your own accomodation of God's authority to divorce
could even be a form of blasphemy on YOUR part.

Think about it.

Better yet, PRAY about it!

...and please re-read Yamil's Bible references yourself,
as they should be quite sufficient to lead you into all
truth.

God bless you.

Interesting!!

Yamil's posts usually annoy me with their Arminian overtones,
but on this thread he is my HERO because he vigorously preaches
against the 90% of my fellow reformers who still think divorce
is OK under certain so-called "Biblical" circumstances.

I'll bet Yamil is also a literal 7-day creationist like myself,
which also seems to be getting more scarce in the increasingly
"high-brow" reformed circles I tend to frequent in my worship.

If it gets any worse I may start to attend Arminian churches
again...just so I can get a little closer to Gospel truth!

Yep.

Peter's encounter with Cornelius the Centurion--and God, Himself,
in the book of Acts pretty much opened the door for all of us to
enjoy those wonderful honey-baked hams on Christmas and other holidays.

Those poor, legalistic muslims have no
idea what they are missing!

I'm with Dessie and Seaton.

When people die, they either go to be with Christ or they
are locked away, waiting for judgement on the last day.

Therefore, there are no such things as ghosts.

Movies like "The Sixth Sense", which I saw while flipping
channels a year ago are particularly insidious, in that
they purport to comfort those who've lost loved ones by
actually ENCOURAGING them to welcome contact with spirits
that they presume to be those of dead relatives or ancestors.

At best these "contacts" are merely the product of the
seeker's imagination, and at worst they are demonic
impersonations of that which the seeker desires.

Trying to use Scientology as a means of reinforcing Christian
practice reminds me of ancient Israel's attempts to qualify
their faith by worshipping on the high places rather than in
the temple.

Wow!

I'm not a parent but I can see that it is
becoming increasingly difficult to be one
so long as the traditional parental authority
of parents to train their children to be
righteous is underminded by the increasing
amount of meddeling by states and institutions.

I'd actually be much more interested in knowing
what the LEAST popular verses in the Bible are,
and why people feel the way they do about them.

In the Bible study at my workplace, I can't tell
where my fellow attendees are spiritually when we
read and study "popular" Bible passages, since
everyones response is pretty much the same,but when
we encounter verses that deal with God's wrath and
man's depravity THEN you get to see where people
stand by how they respond to these often unpleasant
passages.
