The Bible teaches the sad reality that wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. It is a reality that cannot be escaped. Are you saying closing down these murder clinics hinders people from hearing the gospel? Are you saying it is not a good idea to stop the killing of babies because somehow it doesn't promote the gospel? Has God not said thou shalt not kill and would that not be a good thing to stop the killing? How does getting people to stop violating the commandment of God amount ot just expressing our opinions? Thanks for your response.
It is the heart that has to be turned toward God.
The truth is that you can have 15 babies and perish.
There is no law that prevents man from violating the Commandment of God. The Law makes no man righteous.
The man who aborted the lives of 10 people recently was not a PP staffer.
The commandments of God are to bring us to the merciful Lawgiver/Jesus Christ and find grace.
What does it profit a man if he doesn't commit murder and loses his soul?

Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Greek Orthodox, Catholic, Methodist, Northern Baptist, a large contingent of the SBC( thank you Dr. Moore and, yes, Dr. Mohler, you brought the travelers of the young, restless and reformed to the SBC), and the Charismatic Movement, Assembly of God, and the list goes on. Just how, can we not come out among them ? If youâ€™re in a mega church, leave. If your pastor comes from a seminary that forces the students to take on a world view of human sexuality, male, female roles to note a fluid acceptance, then start asking questions. Our pastor was at a small independent baptist seminary, and the teachers began harassing the students to end the paternalistic view of God as a male, or leave the seminary. He ended his doctorate program at that seminary.
We are told to come out from among them. This is exactly what we should encourage young people to do, and then support them when they come out. Not just feel sorry for them; for they are blessed according to the Beautitudes. God will give them beauty for ashes.

Back then, it could still be considered a bit vague as far God Himself judging them, but now this. He just told that community, the world over, that they in fact won't be judged, and furthermore, the reason they won't face judgement is because God made them that way, and loves them just the way they are? Sickening. Bottomline is that they are responsible for knowing the truth, which is available to every single human being on planet Earth. Yet, because they don't like that truth, even though it comes from God Himself, they take comfort in, and allow a mere man to trump God Almighty, even when it has to do with where they will spend eternity. I just don't get it, and how anyone here can associate with such a wicked, blasphemous, idolatrous system of religion based upon nothing but lies, is beyond me.
More and more we are finding "tares" among the wheat.
Only the Gospel of God's dear son will save. Every Christian should be equipped with the truth of the Gospel so that they can tell it to others. It alone has the power to save.

Quote from JL 5/14 pm regarding News Item: Trump Might Attend Embassy Opening in Jerusalem "As a Conservative Christian, it should be no surprise that I have little problem with what Jeffress thinks a different religions. However, being so well-known to hold such views Jeffress certainly was not the person, or Hagee either to be speaking at a political and not religious event"
Was Jeffress correct or not? What should he have said? That they can choose how to get to heaven?
Someone has to go on the offensive and make people aware that the Gospel alone has the power to save.
Eternal salvation is the only thing that matters. People need to be offended with TRUTH!
I hope someone takes Jeffressâ€™ cue and make this political statement a religious (righteous) statement.
The embassy matter was both religious and political; but mostly political. Go Jeffress.

They have counseling for the women who murdered their children and now they have counseling for the women who were helping murder them. The Nazis didnâ€™t think they were murdering human life, but during the tribunals if they were found guilty of those atrocities, they werenâ€™t simply allowed to be remorseful, but were punished, Now before anyone gets all huffy, there have been numerous posts on SA suggesting that abortion and the holocaust were very similar. The Jews were the victims, not the Nazis. The babies in the womb are the victims, not those that murder them. And under Hitler murdering Jews was not illegal and under our present judicial system it is also not illegal to murder the unborn.
Etch this in your mind. Jews were not the only victims. There were millions who were not Jews. Nor are the unborn the only victims.
Just think of what hating someone you don't know does. Hatred of anyone bearing God's image is murder.
But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done (ACTS 8:13).
And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity (18-23).
Where are those fired people having access to information without security clearances. What will they do with it?
A Shock Point After listening to this message the second time, I realized what might be the reason Pentecostals believe in Jesus only; regardless what other scriptures point out.
It reads thus: For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9) and 1:19
This seems sufficiently supportive of their belief in and of itself.
I welcome comments because this is quite outstanding to me.

Trump has many faults but is much better and more qualified for president. The founding fathers meant not to have professional politicians but to have businessman and regular citizens lead for a time and then step down.
Country Boy, Oh Country Boy
Is Pence talking about Hilary or Trump? The main issue is to keep the main issue the main. The article is about Trump.
Worthwhile Teaching Teaching equips Christians for battle.
BTW at appx. 2800 minutes into the sermon it is mentioned that Herbert W. Armstrong, the Worldwide Church of God, JWs, SDA, Mormons, Arnold Murray corrupt truths of scripture that God is triune and distort the truth of a literal Hell. You did not mention Catholics or how Jews view these things.

Hillary has nothing to do with the Lord building his church. Nor does she have anything to do with this lying, fickle, unqualified deceiver that God has allowed to preside over our government. Judge this man on his own demerits, not on what some other person is lacking or has. BTW, she is more qualified. I believe she is capable of change when confronted with her error. But this man â€¦.
Been Watching wrote: God deals with people individually. God promised in Romans 1 that He would abandon those who turned their backs on Him and began worshiping His creation instead. Could it be that God has taken away His hand of protection from California and this is why we see such destruction and moral decay?
Wasnâ€™t California the first to have a professing gay mayor? I canâ€™t remember the city or the female mayorâ€™s name. But I remember that shortly thereafter there was some weather disaster.
