The concept of global warming where it concludes that mankind is going to destroy the earth is of course unscriptural. The Lord Himself will destroy it and create a new heaven and a new earth. Mankind is so silly to think they can undo what the Lord created.
If you ask someone who believes in global warming why they believe that; many will say because science teaches it. Ask someone who doesnâ€™t believe in global warming and they will say because science doesnâ€™t teach it.
Now since most of these folks are not climatologists, then they are simply using itching ears. I personally and Iâ€™m sure most of the posters on SA use scripture.
I am beginning to believe that the issue of global warming will be one issue used against Christians during the end times and will be one reason to hate us and come after us.
Neil wrote: "historically related" means "We were once Christian, but have gotten over it." Fun fact: Univ. of So. Cal. ended its Methodist affiliation in 1952. America is a graveyard of former Christian-oriented colleges, starting with Harvard. The walking dead.
Thanks Neil! I remember years ago reading just how many of our current secular universities were started by a Christian group and were headed by Christian leaders.
I didn't read the article,but it seems like this is simply one of those.
I sent two of my daughters to a Christian H.S. At graduation, only 2 boys said they wanted to serve the Lord in the mission field and no females said their goal was to be wives and mothers.
Yolanda wrote: It would have been spiritual if SA posters, pastors in particular, reached out to Kanye. Now he is open prey. Many of you will sit back and criticize him. And Olsteen. All critics that identify as "Christian" should pray and reach out to Kanye or he will be utterly destroyed along with others he'll take along with him under Olsteen and prosperity peddlers. I challenge all Christians to pray for Kanye. He is one of us. He needs us. So find him and minister to his needs. Whatever you do, don't criticize this babe(?)
Why would SA pastors reach out to him? Is he any more important than anyone else?
Yes, I believe that Osteen is a heretic. I don't know about Kanye, except that he is going to speak at a heretic's church. If that is criticism, then so be it.
I'm sure most of us have prayed for him since he is in these news articles. But, how would I find him even if I wanted to?
Well in order for him to preach at Osteenâ€™s church, he had to be invited. In order to be invited, Osteen must have felt his doctrine was compatible with his.
From the internet:
â€śBirds of a feather flock together is a proverb that goes back hundreds of years. ...Birds of a feather flock together means people of similar interests, background, ideas or characteristics will often congregate or hang out with each other, people who have similar ideas or values tend to stick together.â€ť
I will admit to having a natural distrust when someone of fame and wealth says they have come to Christ and my thoughts may well be unscriptural.
I do pray Kanye's conversion was genuine and we will just have to wait and see.
John UK wrote: Anyone Frank who imagines the incarnation to be an easy thing to understand, must be a spiritual genius, maybe even an angel. But one thing is for sure, "Jesus was always God". We know that, right well.
I can take something out of context in scripture and use that to support just about any abominable behavior I want:
Acts 13:22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
2 Samuel 11:4 And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.
Therefore it is okay to commit adultery or at a minimum it is no big deal.
There are so many who are guilty of eisegesis and simply bend scripture to suit their own needs and concepts. But our heavenly Father knows our hearts and no one can fool Him.
I have read where something like 40 some percent of priests are homosexual. And as we know, many homosexuals are pedophiles. I understand they have sex with each other and then simply confess to each other and forgive the other's sin. The below is a typical priestly response in the confessionals after you vainly repeat the hail mary's, our fathers and acts of contritutions:
May our Lord Jesus Christ absolve you; and by His authority I absolve you from every bond of excommunication (suspension) and interdict, so far as my power allows and your needs require. [making the Sign of the Cross:] Thereupon, I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Notice the expression â€śI absolve your from your sinsâ€ť. They really mean that!
There are no clergy in the catholic church that are remotely even surprised by these pedophiles, much less shocked.
Dr Roger Clark wrote: Too true, Brother!! Just another example of "...the ravings of infidels and sceptics" (A.W.Pink) !
Hey brother! Yes, they are definitely infidels. I remember doing a really long study on the incarnation. When I finished I had lots of issues that I couldn't understand, but that had no effect on the truth that Jesus was always God.
Titus 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
1 Timothy 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Isaiah 3:12 [As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
Neither children nor women should rule over man. If you think that women should be able to lead, then you must also think children should be able to lead.
There is nothing the world can do to undo the feminist movement but the church can speak out against it. All liberal abominations have their origins in this movement. God gave women roles, men roles and children roles. We have blurred the lines so that they are indistinguishable.
John UK wrote: Adriel, the climate change claims do not bother me because I am living well above sea level.
Amen bro, and I liked what Neil said also. I wonder if you could post those two questions brother, which you have posed to evolutionists in the past, and they just looked at you - gone out, sorta.
Here is what I was referring to regarding reproduction.
Imagine a cell forming out of nothing and then that cell multiples and forms a human being; somehow overcoming the irreducible complexity of our vital organs. IOW, none of our vital organs can be alive unless they all are alive. Now, letâ€™s say this human exists, but it obviously canâ€™t reproduce. So, no evolutionist can or will hazard a guess as to how this entire process could start over again and somehow form the opposite sexual organ necessary to reproduce.
Dr. Tim wrote: Of course Jim will claim that Trump is just reaping the benefits of the policies started during the Obama administration, policies such as...uh...and, uh...
Yes he will and he will also say that even though blacks are now working, they still cannot earn enough to live comfortably. He lives in a black matriarchal society and although he wonâ€™t admit it, his theology is the same as Obamaâ€™s; black liberation theology. I did a study on Obamaâ€™s pastor mentor and there is no doubt as to his doctrine.
Neil wrote: .. who is being foolish. The man may have a doctorate, but he evidently didn't do his philosophical homework, for Intelligent Design (AKA the Teleological Argument) was refuted by David Hume and others over two centuries ago. This is why I lost interest in the Creationist movement, for their attempts at using empirical arguments, as Darwinists do, are not rationally defensible. I believe in fiat Creation because the Bible told me so, not Nature.
Yes Neil, evolution is such a ridiculous concept that is hard for me to even argue against it today. I can sit down with an evolutionist ask him a couple simple questions and none of them have even remotely offered an answer. IOW, they just look at me.
What bothers me more than these scientists are Christians who try to appease them while supposedly professing creationism. They do this through theistic evolution or Old earth creationism. All they are doing is trying to appear to be intelligent to unbelievers.
John UK wrote: Frank, both your words and the Bible text testify to the political parties even in the UK. They are exceedingly bold and brazen about the filth they stand up for. And people will vote for them. In a few weeks we have yet another general election, and I am being forced to vote for the brand new party called the Brexit Party, under Nigel Farage. It is the only party which is determined to make a perfect and clean break with the filth and satanism of the European Union. Not that Nigel is a Christian, I don't know what he is, but he sure talks sense when compared to the other parties. He and his fellow Brexiteers had a landslide victory in the recent European elections for MEP's and they make a brilliant noise in the European Parliament building.
Well brother, I have never understood the intricacies of BREXIT, but I have always been against the EU so I hope it happens.
In fact, Lord willing if Britain does actually break away, I might visit just to show my support.
