Adriel said, ‚ÄúChurches are being defeated by the toxic deceptive Liberalism which is also working to destroy all authorities such as moral standards, law and order, government, knowledge and marriage.‚ÄĚ Our Lord, the one who purchased the church of God with his own blood, said, ‚Äú‚Ä¶ I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it‚ÄĚ (Matt. 16:18). Believers who are too self-centered are being defeated. Not the church. Believers are too lazy to study scripture, get a grasp of this battle we‚Äôre in, and proclaim the Gospel effectively to the lost. Some seed has to fall on ground that has been prepared by grace. If we spent just a little more time integrating with those in our own assemblies, maybe we could discern between the wheat and tares. Many pastors allow people to come in without ever approaching them in friendship. Nor do other members meet and greet in a manner that may be lasting. Furthermore, preachers are allowed to spew out false doctrine with being challenged by members who are afraid of a man. We have settled on our laurels.
Great Sermon! I've been searching for a church since relocating several years ago. The stress of not being nourished with bread of life is almost unbearable. I attended a church that usually uses man-centered material (self-help). One that had a SDA speaker. Another that urged member, via announcements, to support a SDA local convention.
But women are not allowed to speak in public gatherings. And men won't address these issues. It is unfortunate that "women aren't permitted" to pray publicly. Even with head covering. Yet the men don't appear to have a deep, rich, intimate connection with the living God who will perform his will among the people.
Are we to wonder why churches are closing?
Republican Pat Buchanan gave this movement new life in more recent years. But the Democrats are giving this issue more momentum.
We Christians should call this atrocity what it is. MURDER! Let's also admit that the NRA is designed, not for hunting game, to destroy multiple seed of certain people. But first we must make one group afraid of the other. Fear has torment.
Another way of of destroying one race of people is to strangle them economically, if not socially. Keep them separated from life giving resources, by any and all means. Isolate them.
Let the wealthy evangelists move into more affluent neighborhoods. Bypass Samaria. Close the eyes to Jericho events. And cry out "Lord, Lord." Then talk about evangelism on the Sabbath. Keep talking. Keep preaching. Send others and keep writing books on HOW to evangelize.
Sorry to rant, but we know what's happening. Yet we won't confront politicians and others with the truth about hatred and murder in this country. We instead support whore-mongers, money-mongers, liars, cheats, deceivers, racists, self-serving politicians and try to convince ourselves that we love our brethren. We are all corrupt and gone astray. Let the US go to hell.
God help us all! Have mercy upon us and turn us again unto You.
What should spark a Civil War is the issue of Alex Acosta not dealing with Jeffrey Epstein, a child molester, appropriately and swiftly. The labor secretary is a trump appointee. Why hasn‚Äôt the president dealt with him I firing him? There are too many issues dealing with sex surrounding this president and his appointees. To think that‚Äôs so many of them are innocent is neglecting to protect our children. We cannot continue to support a lawless leader no matter how much we oppose the other party. All of America will end up a sex cesspool if we don‚Äôt put a halt to these injustices foisted upon our children. Recently a 27 year old woman committed suicide because she was raped at age 12. It ruined her life to be raped. She was much braver. I haven‚Äôt gotten over it and I am in my late 70s. In this administration crimes go unpunished. Laws are broken. republicans and others allow ithis to happen. Racism in evangelical churches is rearing its ugly head. Molestation and abuses are presented to us every day in politics
Jim Lincoln wrote: Samaritan's Purse has a good rating, except as pointed out below. Of course one of the biggest negative features of this charity, is Franklin Graham. ūüíį But, then that's not a surprise. --https://bestcompany.com/charities/company/samaritans-purse You can read the whole review I think it's an honest observation. ūüĎć
If he allows his tongue to go unhinged, it will spark a war. He needs to shut up because he is only revealing what's in his own heart. Now if his church members are giving him this impression then they are not believing that their prayer for peace will be answered. They are probably not praying at all. Stop believing what lawless man will do and begin to believe God and the peace he desires for His people at least.
The Archbishop of Irbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, has accused Britain's Christian leaders of failing to do enough in defence of the vanishing Christian community in Iraq. ‚ÄúOur tormentors confiscated our present," he said, "while seeking to wipe out our history and destroy our future.‚ÄĚ So what is the GOP doing since George Bush, Republican former presiden, was responsible for this travesty? We should allow them to migrate to America. After all they are Christians.
I cannot imagine any God loving person involving themselves with voting. This man Trump stated that the marriage of Buttegieg to another male was a good thing. Also, Al Sharpton stated that the Bible was not the final word. Come out from among them and be ye separate are not my words. And the sheep hear and receive them as the words from God. No wonder the attendance is diminishing. Most people who attend are elderly and sick who cannot understand voices coming from sources other than God. What they hear is only babble. But they stay.
What in God‚Äôs name are we doing voting men into offices who establish laws that are contrary to the Law(s) of God? On one side we have a party wanting to kill innocent babies. On the other hand we have a party wanting to turn a blind eye to the injustices wrought by policemen in many cities. Both parties support PP. Members of both parties turn a blind eye to the killing of innocent adult black men and women. How even one black person, or one Jew, or one relative of a murdered love one, or one Christian, or a woman who has had an abortion can sit back and watch the fight between these two parties wanting a piece of the flesh pie is evil. Their agendas are becoming a blood baths. And pastors are not equipping their flock to take the battle to the streets ‚Äď dialoguing with the lost. Why isn‚Äôt anyone advocating birth control on the scale murder is? Abortion is not birth control. It is murder! I was blind. But the Gospel opened my eyes to this truth. The seeds of murder are planted worldwide daily. What killing field will surround us next? We have the baby in the womb. Black men. People of color in other nations. Older people in some countries. Next it will be those who have lost their ability to resist abuse. We see it on the horizon and keep silent.
