I do agree with MacArthur in that which way you will not declare that you are or not a Christian. My husband is Republican, 2 sons are a daughter and grandson and wife Democrats. My husband has never made a profession or been baptized or acted interested in God or the Bible etc His family Democrats except for one sister. His brother a devout Christian, a holiness preacher and his sons are also Holiness beliefs are Republicans. So rather than judge their salvation, I leave that to God who judges the heart.
This scripture came to mind as I read this. Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. vs37 But as the days of Noah were so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Did they not laugh and ridicule Noah building this huge Ark, going about with business as usual, until the day Noah and family entered the ark,vs39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away,so also will the coming of the son of man be. I have been given the opportunity as a Christian to vote a President into office and what my party stands for is very important to me. I refuse to vote for abortion and other evils that a party in control will pass laws that are against the laws and statutes of Jehovah God that I serve.
Love the way this is going on todayâ€™s comments, already made my day less stressful by the ones on here that gives such wise sayings and makes you stop and think. ðŸ˜‚ Douglas fir, a paper cut is the most painful cut I have ever had so I will make sure to stay away from water and make matters worse!
I really donâ€™t understand how people can be so deceived into following these people! Benny Hinn, Paula White, and others who are not following Christ. I can see how the AntiChrist will be able to deceive many that are not true born again, walking on the Calvary Road , saved by Godâ€™s Grace, Christians.
As my pastor has said about Joshua Harris , you canâ€™t lose something you never had. Thing is the songs that he wrote is still being sung in our churches. I have my hymns that I love on cds and play them whenever.
I agree with sword of justice. And no matter what anyone says there will be those that just donâ€™t see it and so you do what you have to do with your conscience. For you to carry a gun or use one in defense would cause you to sin because your faith is not able to allow you to do that. As for me I have nothing to stop me from going to a doctor because a disease has attacked my body. For instance cancer that will destroy me if I donâ€™t use the knowledge that God has given a doctor to treat it with and save my life. I do what I have to do to live but have prayed before I do anything guided by Him. I was given the option by my Doctor to go to any place and I asked his opinion and he said Shreveport La. It was Godâ€™s answer for me and I was at peace with it. He was a gynecologist oncologist and a wonderful caring doctor that God used to get through it with surgery only. It was closer to home than the other places and faith plus that doctorâ€™,nurses CRNA that put me to sleep helped me recover. I trust God to get me through and allow His will to be done. That was July 24, 2004. Back when I was a kid, my parents never locked their doors but as I grew older they began to lock their doors at night. Now, we lock our doors at night and when my hubby and protector is on a hunting trip I lock my d
John 18:11 Then Jesus said unto Peter, Put up again thy sword into the sheath:the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? It appears to me they had swords when they went into the Garden of Gethsemane. Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them,But now,he that hath a purse,let him take it, and likewise his script: and he that has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace but a sword.
From the study of American History in school during World War11 Franklin D Roosevelt was President and he had no intention of helping the Jews and their persecution but God did and so Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Why? No reason I can think of. Maybe, America being a Christian nation at that time or a fact that sinful people want power and wealth and get it even if innocent people are maimed and killed. Who knows the wicked mind and what Satan uses for his purposes. God used that incident to win a war brought on by an evil cruel dictator. Coincidence, I donâ€™t think so. And by the way. Roosevelt was not in office when Israel was made an Independent State in 1948 or He would have voted against it.
Tim, have you seen the movie Sergeant York? It is the most moving movie I have ever watched and normally I donâ€™t watch war movies. Itâ€™s based on a true story about a man from the hills of Kentucky and how different he was after he was saved to the point he did not want to kill anyone so he filed as a conscientious objector when called up for duty during World War1. Anyway, he was given a history book of American History and how many lives were lost and blood shed to have the freedom we have today. Freedom is not free, it is. bought by the lives of those who served our country. He did go and God used him in a mighty way. A movie made of his life which in my eyes brought glory to God. A backwoods man became a hero and won many metals. The church is a soft target and will be targeted more and more as times get worse because we are in a spiritual warfare.
Hi Dr Tim, I have to comment on this subject that kinda speaks to me about the shooting in the foot. First of all if you own a gun, and we do ( actually more than one, husband is a hunter) you better be prepared to use it. This is a true story even if it sounds unbelievable. We lived in this small town and had read that this single woman had someone break in on her and she had a gun but for some reason didnâ€™t shoot the guy and he slit her throat killing her. That same night or a few nights later he went across Red River to a smaller town (my husband was raised there) and broke in on this elderly man who also had a gun and shot the man dead. Heâ€™s still alive 2 years later and the woman is not and neither is her killer. We have police that go to our church and wears his gun for protection and his wife attends as well. Our son goes to another church and he is one of their security men. He has to have a certain type gun and he and the rest of our family have a concealed gun license permit. Went through training to get it. Not me but I do have one when heâ€™s not home just in case. Just hope I never shoot myself in the foot literally!! lol
Amish Christian, I see you have one of the same beliefs as a Church of Christ neighbor has or had, sheâ€™s dead now. They donâ€™t believe in music either for worship service.She was so good to me when I first moved in and a devout Christian woman., whom I loved dearly. Different but still the same. I donâ€™t see the point in having a full band to sing music to and for gospel songs it can be a distraction from worship.
Need him, that quote from Spurgeon is exactly what happened to me when I was so backslide. I was so unhappy and miserable and couldnâ€™t find my way back to God but He found me and brought me back. First thing I did was start back to church. I understand how important it is to stay focused on Him. The early Christians met in homes, hid in Catacombs, had meetings by the river. I am so thankful for my life in Him.
