Most Americans admit they are sinners, but few rely on Christ
A new study has found that two-thirds of Americans admit that they are sinners, and most of them want to mend their ways, but only a minority said they rely on Jesus to overcome sin.
The findings of the survey conducted by LifeWay Research indicated that only 28 percent of Americans who admit they are sinners depend on Jesus to overcome sin. Thirty-four percent said they are working on being less sinful, while 10 percent say sin does not exist.
Eight percent say they are not sinners, and 15 percent prefer not to say if they are sinners at all. Only five percent said that they are fine with being sinners....
Understand the direction, but has there ever been a single case of pregnancy where the mother was not with child? No definition difference there. Personal DNA established at conception is a better argument to give those who attempt denial of personhood of the unborn.
You need to familiarize yourself with the definition of teaching. Pointing out your sins and your agenda, speaking about your rotten fruit and your need of repentance and God's mercy is NOT forbidden for women to do - so once again, you are in error. I see the rebuke over your false accusations, which is sin, didn't phase you. I am not surprised you didn't come under conviction, you haven't the Spirit within you.
Repent of your sins Jim Lincoln and plead with God to save you. Your 'roman road' will not save you.

Genderless "bible" users have little persuasiveness in gender discussions.
Another generic term being introduced into the modern versions is the word HUMAN, or HUMAN BEING. This is a gender inclusive term. The word "human" is not found in the King James Bible at all. in NASB-39 times in ESV-65 times! ¬† NASB&ESV,etc.change "with child" to "pregnant" in the following: KJB "And woe unto them that are WITH CHILD" NKJV "But woe to those who ARE PREGNANT" Matthew 24:19; Mark 13:17; Luke 21:23; and 1 Thessalonians 5:3 - (ESV, NIV, NASB, NKJV) The NIV changes "with child" to "pregnant" in these verses: KJB "And she BEING WITH CHILD" Rev. 12:2 NIV "She WAS PREGNANT" &so ESV ESV change "with child" to 'PREGNANT' in the following verses - Gen19:36; ¬†Gen38:24, 25; Ex21:22; ¬†1 Sam4:19; ¬†2 Sa11:5; ¬†2 Ki8:12; ¬†2 Ki15:16; Hos13:16; Am1:13; Mat24:19; Mk13:17; Lk21:23; 1 Thess5:3&Rev12:2 Abortion agenda?

Dr. John MacArthur says, ‚ÄúPaul is forbidding women from filling the office & role of the pastor or teacher. He is not prohibiting them from teaching in other appropriate conditions and circumstances‚ÄĚ (The MacArthur Bible Commentary, p. 1,783). All of us have been blessed by mothers, women missionaries & Sunday school teachers, & other females who have taught us the Word without being elders. Let us thank God for the many godly women in our lives.
I guess Jim; Eph 4:29, doesn't apply to you, about your tongue!
As, you can see ,Frank, she is not adhering to the Scriptures. in most cases I will ignore pastorette lbug, but she did serve a useful purpose when making me look up the article by John MacArthur which was was good and I did pay attention to him. The following one for her, since she certainly does need a man's leadership.
1Timothy 2:11¬†Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12¬†I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13¬†For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14¬†and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.---ESV
John MacArthur wrote: While the ministry of women is essential to the church‚Äôs proper working and health, only men are given the responsibility to serve as pastors and elders. Although Scripture is quite clear on this point, there are many individuals, churches, and denominations that choose to disobey the Lord‚Äôs will in this regard and allow women to function in pastoral and teaching roles. But God‚Äôs church will be blessed and will honor Him only as it follows the plan He has revealed in the Bible.

Shouting can mask the nuance of sadness or Joy.

Jim from Lincoln, I would say sister Ladybug is adhering to the following scriptures. You are attacking her and accusing her of being some type of feminist, but it appears to me that she is simply speaking the truths of scripture on an open forum, "in love", warning others of your agenda. That is her goal; not to exercise authority. If she believes you are a heretic, should she not warn you? Why don‚Äôt you argue her points?
Proverbs 17:15 He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them
2 John 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
John 8:44. "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Titus 1:13. This testimony is true. For this reason reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith,
J. Lincoln, you have falsely accused me of being RCC, and now a 'pastorette'. This is a serious sin Jim Lincoln - "Regarding false accusations, the psalmist says, ‚ÄúFor they do not speak peace, but against those who are quiet in the land they devise words of deceit‚ÄĚ (Psalm 35:20). This is an accurate description of the motives and results of false accusations. People lie about the innocent in order to stir up trouble. This happens on every level of society, from the halls of your local high school to the halls of the Pentagon. People accuse others falsely as a revenge tactic or power play or when they think they have something to gain. There is no need to state that this behavior is unbiblical in the extreme.
The command against making false accusations is one of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:16). According to Mosaic Law, someone who accused another person falsely was to receive an ironic punishment: ‚ÄúThe judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst‚ÄĚ (Deuteronomy 19:18‚Äď19). --- from https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-false-accusations.html
J.Calvin wrote: The gospels offensive ain't it Jim Lincoln? People, and yes women are people, trying to help you and yet still replying with snide remarks A response like that shows the depth of your maturity. Accept these rebukes and seek after God.
Well, if you used John MacArthur's article as a starting point, pastorette lbug, I would have taken the correction - -but as an overbearing female who is unbiblical in trying to correct men--I ignore you, except for this short comment.
You are a hypocrite Jim Lincoln, for you yourself stated that one must 'accept Jesus', then you turn around and quote JMac speaking out against this. Here is your exact quote, "If a person doesn't accept Christ he is condemned to hell". Your beliefs are the SAME as John Y!! And yet, you tell him what he should do, neglecting your own need for God's mercy.
You and John Y are in the same boat, professing to be Christian and bearing bad fruit. Repent of your own vileness, your love of the Democrats and the liberal agenda, which is godless. May God have mercy on you and grant you eternal life.
Sorry about the back to back comments, but one last thing, John: I know it seems many are always coming at you and giving the appearance that everything you do is wrong. This isn't the case at all. This is almost always about one thing only, Rome... which is your alignment with Rome, your defense of them, calling yourself one of theirs, and claiming you're born again, yet adamant that you will never, ever leave that false system which openly and proudly teaches doctrines, the very doctrines that God Himself warns of and to flee from, all of which are from the pit of hell. This is why people question you and your spiritual state, no matter if you were baptized or not, because knowing all you do, you choose, without any sort of hesitation, to remain amongst them, and right in the middle of them as they teach, practice, and verbalize their manmade, fatalistic lies from the pit. How in the world is it that you're ok with this?
John, being totally committed to Christ means renouncing and not even being within the company of the works of darkness, e.g., the false doctrines of the Roman religious machine which you choose to sit right in the middle of.

I am totally committed to Christ. If I was not then I would never have started to attend that Baptist Church faithfully every Sunday since last September.
John MacArthur wrote: Listen to today‚Äôs typical gospel presentation. You will hear sinners entreated with such phrases as ‚Äúaccept Jesus Christ as personal Savior‚ÄĚ; ‚Äúask Jesus into your heart‚ÄĚ; ‚Äúinvite Christ into your life‚ÄĚ; or ‚Äúmake a decision for Christ.‚ÄĚ You may be so accustomed to hearing those phrases that it will surprise you to learn that none of them is based on biblical terminology. They are the products of a diluted gospel. It is not the gospel according to Jesus....
Present-day evangelicalism, by and large, ignores those warnings. The prevailing view of what constitutes saving faith continues to grow broader and more shallow, while the portrayal of Christ in preaching and witnessing becomes fuzzy. Anyone who claims to be a Christian can find evangelicals willing to accept a profession of faith, whether or not the person‚Äôs behavior shows any evidence of commitment to Christ....
ladybug, Pastor Steve is not a Southern Baptist Pastor but is a North Central Baptist Pastor as that Baptist Church is not a Southern Baptist Church but is a North Central Baptist Church. If I stated that I would never attend any Baptist Church faithfully every Sunday then I must have been guided by God to start attending that Baptist Church. And anybody who is not truly saved would not request to be Baptized in a Baptist Church. That Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings is a very small Baptist Church with only about 170 members. They don't care about increasing the membership like you implied. They will accept new members but only after they take membership preparation class and give a testimony before the congregation on how they became saved and give evidence of their salvation so that the congregation and the Elders can vote them into membership. That is what I will happen after I finish the membership preparation class.
NeedHim, I am sure that Pastor Steve knows that I attend the local Catholic parish because I am friends with him on Facebook and he has noticed my Facebook page where under life events I state that I am a member of the local Catholic parish. Pastor Steve has not mentioned anything about that.
John Y, it's in love towards you, but you haven't been honest with Pastor Steve. Any solid Pastor or elder or deacon, would tell you to depart from Rome Bondage & her false hopes through another gospel message, that results in damming bad news, as man is exalted. Instead of no King but Christ alone, if one thinks they are owed or deserving of grace, they have no clue, in what the gospel is then amen.
George Whitefield: "Man is nothing; he hath a free will to go to hell, but none to go to heaven, till God worketh in him" and "you dishonour God by denying election. You plainly make salvation depend, not on God‚Äôs ‚Äėfree grace‚Äô but on Man‚Äôs ‚Äėfree will.‚Äô"
