Oops, cut and pasted the wrong message. QuietâThat is the crux of the problem. Too many Christians are looking at the world through the lens of humanism instead of the Bible. They are Scripturally illiterate and have more interest in understanding the world than God.
Well, Iâve heard it tastes like pork. As far as Scripture, does it say âthou shalt not eat?â I mean, wasnât âwaste not want notâ somewhere in there? Think about it: If you donât shed their blood to get it, it might be ok.... Just saying.
I hate to sidestep from what, I am certain, would be another interesting dive into this moron from Hillsongâs lifeâbut let me ask you a question, Amish... no instruments in worship, but you have a computer/cellphone for SermonAudio?
He is no different from the guy last week, (probably jealous and wanted to join the bandwagon,) and no different than Gay Boltzâor was it Ray?âpossibly saved, (probably not, but possibly,) and caught up in the postmodern sin fantasy that every other big name person grabs ahold of when pleasing their flesh is more important than pleasing God.
Case in point would be âFor Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto ThessalonicaâŚâ (II Timothy 4:10) In this passage, written in AD 66, we see that Demas is being lamented as having Departed from Service. We do not know the exact circumstances of his departure, but the strong wording by Paul, as he considered it a forsaking, leads one to believe it wasnât a pleasant departure. He was fruitful, but became unfruitful.
âAnd some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked themâŚâ (Matthew 13:7) (And the explanation,) âHe also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.â
Lurker: Respectfully âThe key to the passage that tells us the spiritual condition of the named is found in v4 "...and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost..." (Hebrews 6:4) to partake means to receive a share of. Lost people don't get a piece of the Holy Ghost. You must consider the context of the passage, which begins in Hebrews 5:12- it is discussing those who did not mature, and the leaders if the church, former Hebrews, who are used to the sacrifice, could not wrap their head around the fact that One time sacrifice was good enough, so were preaching salvation again to those who fell into sin, in lieu of making them get right. He was telling them it was impossible for someone who is saved and worldly to get re-saved. They just need to get right.
And the first thing I think of is when my 11 year old sister was made to break up with her âboyfriendâ and she yelled, âI hate youâ at my father. I saw the same thing a few years ago when a lady lost her child and got mad at God, and said âI hate youâ My sister was still my parents child, despite the redundant behaviorâjust like this grieved woman who did not rest in the Lord but lashed out in her emotions was still a child of God. It could be the same situationâjust in lieu of emotions it was chosen sin that caused the rift. Againâwe donât know his heart. Iâm just making the suggestion that he could have been saved and now heâs running from God. For that, there is still a penaltyâjust not hell. Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
