Dr.Tim, sorry I donât trust church leaders whose eye is on the collection plate and not the welfare of the people. Most in my community have complied, but there are a certain group who have not, and are so brash as to wear their side iron in open view on the pulpit and pew.đ
The brick and mortars are in civil disobedience for remaining open for gatherings of 10 or more people. Restaurant, bars, senior centers and casinos have all complied. But the gatherings of some who call themselves believers are saying âno not usâ.shame on you what a horrible witness yaâll are. Better read Romans 13 and see what God commands His own to obey.
Dear B, McCausland- I agree with many of your excellent points.Where I differ is, I donât assume everyone I engage with on a Christian forum is regenerate. Iâm afraid that even with believers our carnal nature can overtake us and we act more like the ungodly.(to our shame) Was not my intention to be a flame thrower, just giving an opinion.
As a Christian lady who occasionally posts on this forum I will say that most of the gentleman who are on here as well as my own dear husband, will not abide a women who corrects every little nuance, jot, or tittle. We ladies have that tendency đ and we do have to keep it in check. Not trying to butt in, just giving my assessment of the situation as it appears to me.
When the only Gospel of free and Sovereign Grace is preached, the elect of God will have their hearts opened by God, repent of their dead works and look to Jesus Christ as their only Hope. The âofferâ that FG and his ilk bring is no gospel but a carnival barkers circus entertainment show with all of the usual suspects. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in the 60âs boycotted BG and refused to be on the same platform with him and his Roman Catholic buddies.
Itâs been my experience that folks overseas who have lost their rights to bear arms, take on a very pious attitude of being sooo much more â spiritualâ than the Americans who still have that right. Please get over it, and stop all this pious pandering.
