John Boyer~ Praise the Lord for your new birth! I love this statement from your testimony, 'from that day on I turned away from being gay, no longer wanting to hurt my God like that ever again'. What a beautiful example of repentance. Thank you for coming here and sharing with us what our Great and Awesome God has done for you. May He always be glorified through all He saves.

DJC49-this is very true.
Homosexuality is like a deadly cancer. It eats away at the moral fabric of society until it destroys it altogether.
If someone wants a clear biblical example of what this sin does, read Gen.19:11, "And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they WEARIED themselves to find the door." ---you would think being struck blind would of frightened them, but no; they still tried to fulfill their perverted desire. This brings out how mentally depraved homosexuals are {Romans 1:24}. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual sin, to the point of no trace left.
Yes, all sin is deadly, but, homosexuality is particularly entangling.
It's frightening that so many have such a flippant approach to sin, especially one that ensnares such as this one. Is it any wonder America {and the entire world} is in the shape it's in?

Amy,
If these lesbians were to repent of their sin, then by all means, let them stay. BUT, you simply cannot allow this when you are upholding the word of God. This is simply ridiculous, an outright blatant act in which sin {in this case, homosexuals} demands to be accepted. It is all part of the homosexual agenda, they will continue to push and push their abomination down the throats of Christians until they wear down some, who in turn say, 'we must love all people'. To love someone is to point out their sin using God's word, and tell them how Christ died and was raised so they may be reconciled to God. Giving the Gospel to a lost sinner is the biggest evidence of love one could display. To simply embrace their sin is NOT biblical.
I do like the statement, 'the purpose of a religious school is to teach Christian values'. God does not condone sin, neither should His children.

Rogerant, you say, 'I believe it is an improper distinction and proclamation of the law and the gospel, Arminianism and dispensationalism.' This is your opinion, based on your reformed view.
I have read your attacks on others who disagree with you, you've gone so far as to say Michael Hranek isn't saved, but you cover yourself nicely by adding a little smiley icon afterwards. Even in jesting, someone's eternal destiny is no joking matter.
I don't think ANY of this is relevant, I came here simply to help clear the accusations made against MacArthur. In all honesty, I should have known better!

Rogerant, I pointed out your error in accusing MacArthur in not using proper terminology,imputed vs. infused. What was your intentions in posting the links concerning Dr. MacArthur?
As for my comment in speaking harshly, that was a reference to my OWN postings; we are to strive to glorify God in ALL we do, many of these postings would certainly contradict that.
Again, I consider Dr. MacArthur a true man of God, and I thank God for him.
Do you hold a doctorate in theology?

It appears we 'excuse' our behavior and chalk it up to the fact that this is a passionate forum. Yet, God's word is clear, 'A servant of the Lord must NOT quarrel, but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition' 2nd Timothy 2:24-25
Again, God forgive me if I have spoken too harshly.

No one has full knowledge of the Bible. I don't point to a man for truth, I corrected your accusations against a man who expounds truth. Truth is only found in one place, not creeds and confessions, but solely in God's word. MacArthur is saved by God's grace, but he is not perfect. However, this man has a doctorate in theology, instead of criticizing him, we should embrace our brothers and sisters in Christ. You seem to make a sport of debating, is that healthy? You also want to condemn others who don't 'word' things exactly as you think they should. I suppose no one truly lives up to your high expectations, how sad. As was already pointed out, MacArthur used the correct 'terminology' concerning imputed righteousness.
If holding to a 'reformed' view means one must exalt a certain system of beliefs, while tearing down all who oppose, I want NO part of it. This is like the Pharisees of Christ's day, being self-righteous and looking down their noses at all who aren't like them. I will stick with my teacher, the Holy Spirit, as He illumines God' truth through His word.
May God forgive me if I have spoken too harshly.

Good day

Rogerant~ before you 'gloat' over your victory {which seems to be your main goal; being right, not edifying others}, read this from MacArthur's website, from www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/90-65
"First of all, I get the righteousness of Christ, to know Him is to have His righteousness. It is to have His holiness, His virtue infused into me, IMPUTED to me. It makes me right before God."
Also, from his sermon 'The believer's armor, MacArthur states, 'When you become a Christian, you reach out your hand in faith, take hold of the hand of God through Jesus Christ, at that moment the righteousness of Christ is IMPUTED to you, God clothes you in the righteousness of Christ."

We should NOT attack others based on opinions and half-truths.
Also, check this out...www.gty.org/search/resources/imputed+righteousness

Listen to this sermon 'The Sinner is neither able nor willing' at www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=1223081938331
This clears up the accusation of labeling {here we go again!} MacArthur as a 'semi-arminian', as the link in 'beware's' post says.
Again, quit 'splitting hairs' by hanging on every word said by this man, just because he doesn't hold to a strict 'reformed' view, he is railroaded and rode out of town. How quick we are to 'shoot our own'!

candlelit~ thank you for your post. I appreciate your commentary. Thank you for bringing to light who the true Teacher of man is...the Holy Spirit.
Mike~ yes, I have read MacArthur's 'The Truth War'; it is an excellent read. Another book I would suggest is MacArthur's 'Hard to Believe', as well as Charles Leiter's 'Justification and regeneration'. His book is available at www.heartcrymissionary.com
Rogerant~again, you imply that creeds and confessions are the result of the framework or lense in how we interpret scripture. Candlelit clarifies, 'the Holy Spirit is our teacher'. That statement sums it all up...No one can reveal truth to another, only God can; through His word, by His Spirit. Instead of repeatedly hammering away at a set system of beliefs according to these creeds and confessions, let's pray for one another; after all, the Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher, not man. You seem to imply that those who do not hold to a set system of beliefs are much like those of cults and demons. Shame on you!

BTW~ I have no problem with MacArthur's pre-mil view.
Really, will my pre-mil view affect the salvation God has given by His grace? Not!

Rogerant~ MacArthur is a great expository preacher/teacher; yet, he is still in like us, in the flesh. I respect this man's teaching, the years he has spent studying God's word, and the way God uses him to speak truth. Yet, I understand MacArthur is human. There are several men I respect and have gleaned much from...Washer, C. Leiter, Jeff Noblit, M. Thomsen, my own pastor. When you linked MacArthur with lordship salvation, I gave a link so others may read for themselves. MacArthur teaches what the Bible teaches. The problem I see with so many is this system of 'categorizing' and 'labeling'. This is causing HUGE riffs within the body of Christ, all because we give credit for what we learn to a 'system of theology' instead of to Christ, who is the holder and teacher of all truth. Rather than throw myself into some category, I much rather prefer to keep it simple...I am a sinner saved solely by His grace and power in Christ, whose feet I sit at for understanding.

Rogerant~ with all due respect, you accuse MacArthur of 'lordship salvation'...in response, I give a link so others may read and decide for themselves.

We are not called to debate until we 'win the argument', we are called to love one another, serve one another, strive for unity. {this is why I removed most of my previous post, I do not wish to waste days arguing and being bullied til I cave in to some reformed view}

Jessica~Please know that the times spent in the 'valley' are times that draw us closer to Him, these trials and troubles are meant to refine us, polish us, and cause us to draw from His strength, for we have none of our own.
We all pray for you, knowing our Great and Awesome God will be glorified through this 'valley'. Remember this, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials" James 1:2
The Lord God is with you, He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you.

I, too, am on my way to Sunday School; but I wanted to thank you for your quick response. Perhaps because some cannot be pinned down to a certain system of beliefs is what produces so much division, bickering, backbiting, and arguing between professing Christians.
It is clear we believe God saved us, not because Calvin taught it, but because God Himself spoke it. I am convinced that because some continue saying 'Calvin taught' lies the problem which causes this constant debate. Anyway, may you have a blessed day in the Lord!

Michael, As you know, I do not uphold to either side on the debate between calvinists and arminians; I believe what God's word teaches and give Him all credit.
Would you look at this from Eph. 2:1, "and you were dead in the trespasses and sins {vs 2}-in which you once walked."
How does a dead sinner bring himself to life? How does he/she quicken themselves to the things of God? It just isn't possible unless God has done a work in our hearts/minds first.
I simply cannot take credit for the salvation God has given me, Eph. 2:8-9 says it is His gift. He gives it, by His grace. I wanted nothing to do with God until He broke through my dead, proud, God-hating heart. After God brought me to my knees, THEN I cried out to Him; but it was not until He had brought me low.

The continual arguing and divisiveness found here doesn't just apply to you Rogerant; I do feel your sarcasm speaks volumes.
Referring to me by anything other than my name is in itself telling. Again, I quoted scripture, which you say you defend...but do you understand the necessity to obey? I pray so.

Rogerant, may I say to jest about one's salvation really isn't a matter of humor?
I don't debate because of all the time I've already wasted on these boards, there is so much work to be done as far as living holy lives, working out our salvation with fear and trembling, and proclaiming the gospel to the lost.
Also, I don't think Michael is an arminian. He has stated that in his posts. He does not hold to either the calvinist or the arminian view, and I think I can see why. This debate has gone on for ages, and it eats up so much of our time. We need to proclaim the gospel to the lost, and pray for our brothers and sisters, not continually debating to the point of causing division. How many opportunities to share the gospel with the lost might we have missed by continually debating?
I have decided it is much more profitable to pray for others rather than waste time trying to convince others.
May the Lord guide us; may we remember to always walk humbly with our God.

May the Lord exceedingly bless you this day Rogerant.

This comment, 'we do have a heart for lost souls. We pray for Michael Hranek all the time' is very disturbing.
Please, let's not let our flesh get in the way as we debate to the point of dividing.
Let us remember the word of the Lord,"And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God will perhaps grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth." 2nd Timothy 2:24-25

What is the greatest gift? "Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." 1st Cor. 13:4-7

GG~ The problem with your holy tradition is that it overrides scripture, and cannot be backed with scripture. Traditions are what Christ preached against concerning the Sadduccees and Pharisees,who were arrogant and self righteous because they followed tradition.
As for the gifts you mentioned in Isaiah, those are not gifts of man, but instead are attribute of God's Spirit, and reference to Christ, who is the Branch from Jesse. From 1 Cor. 12:4, 'gift' means 'grace or gifts denoting extraordinary powers, distinguishing certain Christians and enabling them to serve the church of Christ, received w/o any merit of his own'
Again, you or a church cannot produce a 'gift', it must be given from above.
To understand the true meaning of the word 'gift' is priceless.

Your lack of reverence and understanding of who God is shows in your posts, you refer to God's Holy Spirit by posting his initials, which is demeaning.
