I have served as a pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church since my congregation and I were received into it in January 1998. It has been remarkably free of conflict because we have agreed to disagree on certain issues.

Scripture clearly teaches that a woman should never be in authority over men, and there is no example in Scripture of a woman exercising authority over men with divine approval. Furthermore, when women exercise their spiritual gifts, it is always to be under the authority of men according to Scripture.

That is what I believe, and [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?sermonid=22011119331]]]that is what I teach publicly and privately[/URL]. Our congregation's standing rules and by-laws reserve ordained office to males alone. Most pastors that I know would agree with me, but we are willing to welcome people who are fleeing the apostasy of the Presbyterian Church (USA) as long as they agree with the essential doctrines of Christianity. [URL=http://www.epc.org/about-the-epc/beliefs/essentials-of-our-faith/]]]The Essentials[/URL] of Christianity are our line in the sand.

“ Please Don't Give up on the Church ”
Dear Jana, Please don't give up on the Church. There is no perfect congregation on earth and there are no perfect pastors -- I certainly come short of being the pastor I ought to be and so desperately want to be. You and I need to be accountable to a local fellowship of believers if we are to grow and be what God wants us to be. Find a local congregation where the main teacher/pastor/preacher believes the Bible is God's Word and bases what he says on it, who proclaims the good news summed up in John 3:16: that we are right with God by grace alone, received through faith alone, in Christ alone -- is a man who loves the Lord Jesus and loves people, and who is a man of prayer. God bless you, Bob Vincent

Harold Camping's system depends on the crucifixion taking place on April 1, AD 33. Yet the Bible tells us that the Lord cleansed the Temple 46 years after it had begun to be rebuilt: "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?" (John 2:20)

According to first century Jewish writer, Flavius Josephus, King Herod began the rebuilding in his eighteenth year:

"And now Herod, in the eighteenth year of his reign, and after the acts already mentioned, undertook a very great work, that is, to build of himself the temple of God, and make it larger in compass, and to raise it to a most magnificent altitude, as esteeming it to be the most glorious of all his actions, as it really was, to bring it to perfection, and that this would be sufficient for an everlasting memorial of him" [Josephus, Flavius. (1970). Josephus Complete Works. Translated by William Whiston . Kregel Publications: Grand Rapids, MI, p. 334].

"In 37 BC the Senate appointed a Jew, Herod the Great, King of Judaea" [J. M. Roberts. (2003). The New History of the World. New York: Oxford University Press, p. 264].

That means that the Temple project began in 19 BC, which puts the time of our Lord's ministry several years before Mr. Camping's dates.

1. The Bible clearly condemns lying.

2. The Bible never commands us to lie.

2.1. While the Bible condemns killing, it also commands killing in certain circumstances.

2.2. There are no such commands with regard to lying.

3. The Bible never commends lying. The Bible does commend people who have lied, but never explicitly for their lying.

4. The Bible commands and commends the use of military stratagems.

5. God has ordained whatsoever comes to pass.

5.1. God has ordained everything in history, including all manner of human barbarity.

5.2. In the sovereignty of God, he has given people over to all kinds of evil, using various means, natural and supernatural to accomplish his ends.

5.3. God has not only given people over to lying, he is also ultimately the one who has judged the West through the dreadful outpouring of sexual perversion that we now witness.

6. Are we forbidden to lie to people whom we judge not to be our neighbors?

7. Rather than planning to sin in response to hypothetical situations, we are commanded to trust our sovereign God who will never allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to withstand it.

Here is the biblical basis for these statements: [URL=http://www.rbvincent.com/BibleStudies/lies.htm]]]

This news item is very sad because it removes hope for people who struggle with this sin.

For a message of hope for people who struggle with same sex temptations, I would like to recommend a sermon that I preached: [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?sermonid=1230071116124]]]Lot's City: Unbridled Sensuality[/URL].

Here is part of the overview:
'Because of the sin of our first parents, none of us is immune to the potential pull toward homosexuality. Yet this sad truth offers us hope, too, for "Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners, of whom I am chief" (1 Timothy 1:15). No sin is so bad that it cannot be washed clean by the blood of Jesus. No stronghold of a life-dominating, life-defining sin is too strong to resist the power of the Holy Spirit who gives us freedom in Jesus Christ.'

I have not had the time to read Mr. Colson's book yet, so I will withhold judgment until I have read it. Isn't that the right thing to do? What people are reacting to is a news media report about the book and not the book itself.

What if what Mr. Colson meant was "people who belong to a church"?

To say that those who profess to be Muslims know more about their false religion than those who profess to be Christians know about real Christianity is not an endorsement of Islam.

Sadly, in my experience as a pastor who was first licensed to preach in 1965, I must say that the vast majority of people who have their names on the roll of something that uses the word "church" in its name know very little about the Bible.

We are up against something very demonic as we deal with the increasing power of the spirit of Islam, and the Church must educate those who name the name of Christ about it.

I would encourage people to listen to this three part message: [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=11220417168]]]http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=1122..[/URL]

“ Response: God and Evil, 3 ”
The greatest illustration of how God is the Creator of all things and fully in control of everything, yet without himself committing sin, is the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ: that one event is fully a human action and fully the carrying out of the divine plan. On the one hand it is the greatest evil men have ever committed, but this same event is God's greatest act of love and kindness toward us. In other words, God is the author of the crucifixion of Jesus, and it is a wholly good act on God's part. Yet the human actors in this event intended evil and committed a horrible sin against God. They were not forced to do what they did; they were not puppets on a string; they acted as they chose to act without coercion -- God never does violence to the will of the creature. God has foreordained whatever comes to pass; yet God has given human beings the ability to make authentic choices without coercion. You might find my blog on this topic of interest( http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=7474 ). God bless you, Bob

“ Response: God and Evil, 2 ”
The Hebrew word, _ra_, translated "evil" in Isaiah 45:7 is contrasted with the Hebrew word, _shalom_, "peace." _Shalom_ is much broader than our concept of the absence of war; it also includes health, prosperity and well being. _Ra_ is the exact opposite of _shalom_; _ra_ includes all the things that Zoroaster attributed not to his god, Ahura Mazda, but to Angra Mainyu. For Isaiah, as for the rest of Scripture, God's sovereignty extends to all events. That doesn't mean that God is the author of sin (God does not act contrary to his own nature; God does not and cannot sin.), but it does mean that sin doesn't happen outside of God's control or outside of his benevolent plan. For example, Joseph's brothers committed dreadful sin against him when they sold him into slavery. Yet all these terrible events took place under God's benevolent plan: "But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive" (Genesis 50:20).

“ Response: God and Evil ”
In Isaiah 45 the future king of Persia, Cyrus the Great, is addressed almost a century before his birth. Cyrus would be steeped in the Persian dualism that was given its most popular expression by Zoroaster (Zarathustra): "He apprehended Ahura Mazda as God, the one eternal uncreated Being, wholly good, wise, and beneficent; but coexisting with him he saw another Being, the Evil Spirit, Angra Mainyu (Pahlavi Ahrimanc), who was wholly evil, ignorant, and malign, likewise uncreated, but doomed in the end to perish" [Mary Boyce, "Zoroaster, Zoroastrianism," _The Anchor Bible Dictionary_, Vol. VI, David Noel Freedman, ed., (New York: Doubleday, 1992), p. 1170.]. Against such dualism, the Holy Spirit moved Isaiah to write that there is only one God, the God of Israel. Isaiah explains that this one true God created all things and is completely sovereign over everything, including good and evil. This was completely contrary to what the future Cyrus would believe, indoctrinated as he was with Zoroastrian dualism. But, says Isaiah, the true God is the Creator of all things and fully in control of whatever happens. CONTINUED NEXT

I have given the reason why the U. S. Constitution makes no reference to God in the two-part blog listed above: "God and the Constitution of the United States," http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=12989 and http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=12991 .

While the national government was forbidden to have a religious establishment, the particular states were not, as understood historically. This "wall of separation between the Federal and state governments is expressed in the Tenth Amendment: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Corroborating this are the words of Thomas Jefferson: "In matters of religion I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the Constitution independent of the powers of the General Government. I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises suited to it, but have left them, as the Constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of the church or state authorities acknowledged by the several religious societies" (Thomas Jefferson, "Second Inaugural Address,"1805).

Mother Teresa needed a husband to come home to at night, somebody who would hold her in his arms and love her and listen to her and pray with her and for her -- she needed sex, too, just as the FORMERLY Virgin Mary did, and bless the Lord, she got after giving birth to her firstborn child, the Lord Jesus.

Marriage is God's good gift. Sadly, not only did she miss out on this, Mother Teresa also appears never to have known the compensating Spiritual joy that is the inheritance of every child of God, even when called to deep sacrifice: "But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me" (Philippians 2:17, 18). Whenever I get down, and I certainly do get down, I take the time to praise the Lord. Worship and choosing to confess the goodness of God, regardless of my emotional low, always eventually brings me the joy of the Lord which is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

I just posted a blog that is related to this, Thoughts on Sex, Marriage and Celibacy www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=12915 .

Although I was raised in a Christian home, I became a professing atheist and an immoral drunk after I entered my teen years. The beginning of my senior year in high school, the Lord Jesus drew me to himself, and I have always had a sense of his presence from that time on, over forty years ago. To be sure, at times I have known a measure of darkness and a sense of something of a loss of his presence, especially in the wake of some deliberate act of disobedience -- as long as pride kept me from the brokenness of repentance -- but I have never known the hellish loneliness I consistently knew during my years of hating God and denying his existence. I believe that it is biblical to say that Christians go through dark times, but these dark times are neither permanent, nor are they utterly without God's presence. Those who have been born again do go through dark times, but I cannot reconcile such an inexorable absence of the presence of God as that described in this article with the universal testimony of believers after the Day of Pentecost.

Hell is a dreadful place, described by the Lord Jesus as the outer darkness, where the gnawing worm never dies and the burning fire is never extinguished (Matthew 22:13; Mark 9:48; Revelation 14:11). All of us deserve to go there (Revelation 20:13-15), and it will be a place of "weeping and gnashing of teeth" for everyone. But some people's experience in hell will be worse than others.

The Bible tells us that everyone has sufficient truth so that no one will have an excuse on the Day of Judgment (Romans 1:18-21). If a person had an opportunity to hear the gospel and declined it, his judgment will be more severe than that of somebody who had no such opportunity. But if someone has actually understood the gospel and refused to turn to Christ, his judgment will be the most severe of all.

The older I get, the more I am reminded that I need the blood of Jesus, not only for my sins, but for the sinful element in the things I attempt to do as an expression of my love for God, even when I do those things by the power of the Holy Spirit.

There is a Christian version of noblesse oblige: the greater my privilege, the greater my obligation and the more serious and sinful are my sins and the sinful element that remains in what I do.

“ More on Luther ”
I agree with you that Martin Luther did not hate all Jews, but he did make some terrible statements about them as a people, statements that Satan has used in an evil way ever since. Luther was mightily used by God to present the gospel of Christ, but, like the rest of us, he was not a perfect man, especially in his words. I, too, have said things for which I have had to repent, and I believe that's true of us all. In this sermon, I quoted from Martin Luther's writings, and they are also posted in the second of the two blogs connected with the message. Thank you for your comments. Cordially in Christ, Bob Vincent
