Mike Can't find the verse to forsake the gathering, you know the verse Do you know?
thanks....(Hebrews 10:25, cool, thanks)
Wise I agree, the Bible says there will be tares among, but not the majority Thats what I refer to, ? , I am going to forego fellowship with other like minded believers (like minded with who) because of someone in the church is not to my standards (not talking someone, I mean many) (to my standards, ? from the little you may know of me, by my comments, do I meet your standards)
? Ok, so I go to the sports bar, golf club or sporting events to serve God. foolish What about home churches, good thing?

Remember, we are dealing with Politicians that have allowed Muslims and Hindus to be chaplains in our military! A Hindu even open with "prayer" in the Senate so just what is next if we are ashamed of naming Christ in our prayers!!! [/QUOTE Good advise Thanks Ernie
lyn wrote: I think it's interesting that the only time you hear from the loyal followers of the RCC is when there's a news story pertaining to them. Take note of all the other stories available, for instance, Christian persecution, homosexuality, violence, etc. They are silent on these issues. How sad to be so selfish and self-centered as to think so little of what's happening to human beings in our world. Christ commands us to deny self, pick up our cross and follow Him. Truly, the body of Christ will do just that. Wisdom is proved right by her actions.
Mike wrote: "Would someone show me that in the Bible And please don't use to forsake the gathering, you know the verse Im sure. Forsake means just that, don't prevent, encourage against, Does not mean GO, NT, Thanks terry" Forsake also means abandon.

Mabe full blown ones, but alot of allmostes. When I go to work in the am most of the drivers in other cars are women, dressed for work. Are they all single, or being a good help? Most of the females I work with are married, they work to buy cool stuff, pay for the second car, a bigger home with a bigger morgage, better whatever. Anything to worry about, no For it is written.
Garden wrote: The growing Liberalism in many churches in towns and cities across the land, is one of the reasons for real Christians to reject the local "buildings" One couple I heard of went to eleven churches in their city and found them all to be of Liberal persuasion. What then is the real Christian to do? (Some have started house churches)
Amen Yet alot continue to attend and tithe at a church were they don't agree with doctrine.
I mean they say they must go to church
Home churches are Biblical, must only teach the Word. Home churches should keep other home churchs informed of their teaching. That way it helps keeping docturne sound its a great way for fellowship.
Most so called churches are full of tares, most teach some sound doctrine, most could care less about you and your spiritual walk(your just part of the crowd), most have at least one thing someone must do to prove there saved.
Would someone show me that in the Bible And please don't use to forsake the gathering, you know the verse Im sure. Forsake means just that, don't prevent, encourage against, Does not mean GO, And what about a christian who does not attend a "formal" church. Are they saved? NT, Thanks
enough already wrote: We don't have the capability to change a heart, however, if we give the gospel as it is written, God will convict a lost person of sin, through His Holy Spirit. Too many are forgetting the first sermon our Lord ever preached, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" Matt. 4:17. Here's a wonderful recipe by Thomas Watson from his 'Doctrine of Repentance'...Repentance is a grace of God's Spirit, whereby a sinner is inwardly humbled ..spiritual medicine made up of six special ingredients: 1. Sight of sin 2. Sorrow for sin 3. Confession of sin 4. Shame for sin 5. Hatred for sin 6. Turning from sin If any ingredient is left out, it loses its virtue. This is a most unpopular message in today's arrogant, selfish, ...(edit). Praise God for all who hold fast to His word, proclaiming it fearlessly and boldly, as we should.
Amen Yet they continue to persaude
2 Timothy 2 25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are TAKEN CAPTIVE BY HIM AT WILL
if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth
ErnieG wrote: Mike Huckabee should win the votes of Professing Christians if they are truly concerned about putting Jesus Christ first for the country's well being. (It is not anything new for Politicians to talk from both sides of their mouth to get elected.) Mr. Huckabee just won my vote as I was unsure who to vote for as the rest of the issues mean nothing if the man does not use God and country in his campaign. I could care less about his stance on other issues, because if he is seeking answers from the Almighty God of the Bible on them, I can live with that over all the other pretenders!! And that is my humble opinion, and if you don't like it, I have plenty more!

The slaughter of innocent unborn children from conception(God knew Jeremiah before he was born; check out Psalm 139)to birth is a grotesque sin. Does Mr. Paul believe the murder of an unborn child at conception with the morning after pill is of a "lesser" degree than say in the third trimester? As far as the sale of narcotics it sounds a little like Clintonian logic. Remember when Bill Clinton's Health Sec., Mr. Sullivan, dispatched vans full of clean hypodermic needles in N.Y.C., to hand out to the drug addicts? This was his incredible remedy to the aids crisis. Have you googled the 118 Exclusive Interview yet? It's really not that long. JOB 1:8
kenny wrote: Again, Terry, more childish pratter. Please define 'homophobia'. A fear of sodomites? You bet I am. I have seen the results of their behavior (it's not a 'lifestyle'-it's a behavior: sodomy). You are great at throwing mindless barbs but say absolutely nothing of any substance. Please explain to me where I am incorrect. Use sentences (for a change). Use logic. Use Scripture. Keep in mind what God did with sodomites in the Old Testament and how Paul uses their behavior as a measuring stick for evil behavior in Romans 1. Anyone can make 3 word smart alec cutesy pie insults. Try expressing lucid thoughts in a comprehensible form.
kenny wrote: terry evans: I don't hate anybody. I am disgusted by sodomite behavior. I do not want to see it, hear about it, know about it or be exposed to it in any way. That's not hate. That's good judgment. Discernment. The next time there is a thread on SA regarding the shortcomings of government education, I'll try to remember to cut and paste this last post of yours into it. It will make my point perfectly. (I strongly discriminate against government schools. They are anti-Christ). 1 John 4.1-6 Now I think I'll go 'goggle' something.
no thats not hate thats homophobia anytime glad to be of help
1 John 4 - you forgot the rest, context
7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
want it stright up kenny you make Him a liar and His Word is not in you.
Have a nice day, see I discriminate against the darkness

Thanks, Praise God
What can they say I'm not here because I'm looking for love. Allthough I would like to marry, know any good christian girls, sorry forgot who I was talking to.
I'm here to let my little light shine but then the darkness hates the light see jd, the Holy Spirit has to work on an individual, not me.
I, pray, and always use Gods Word as source material while online. To be honest, I amaze myself. Sometimes, I guess its just me but I can't believe I write half the stuff I do either, do you understand
If you notice, My comments are 1. supportive, meant as an encouragment to someone truly Christ like. Its hard being a christian, sometimes its like being on the endangered species list 2. convicting, everyone, myself included says something stupid, usually that happens when people go fleshly because of frustration. When it goes to far I say something 3. rebuking, my best, but thank God instead of hurting and destroying peoples lives with my wit, I use it against those who preach another gospel

Kenny Do me one favor, read my comment1/7/08 4:20 PM, before your last one. Please, read it now, I'll wait. Did you see But God Hates IT, hence some chistians may stumble and hate the sinner
12/31/07 5:20 PM -my take Is this from you also? . God does not tolerate sin Thats true, and every one has and does, even the BEST (no such thing) christian will sin, even if they don't know it. So God is JUST, He is no biggot. A just judge. He does not discriminate, nor does he tell you to. Your like 180 out.
Can you define 'discrimination Yes, Kenny I can But don't take my word for it goggle it
Don't just try to be cute (glib?) OK, I tend to see it as being nice I could do like you and throw out a verse or two and tell you your going to hell. Kenny, as a all american boy, I fell in love(lust)at maybe 7 years old, funny at that time I liked older girls(I'm MALE) but my last wife was half my age. My point, by 10 years old I knew all about fags and queers, back then they were far from gay. And I hated them OUT OF
Someone wrote What is wrong with discriminating (If your a christian everything.)
I discriminated when I chose my wife. I could have chosen many others (So much could be said here, you have my sympathy Jo Anne) Way to much PRIDE dude.
I discriminate when I go to a restaurant. I choose what I want from the menu. That means I discriminate against all of the stuff I didn't order (ok, the other food, they don't know that, so there not upset.) To dislike meatballs, is not discrimination.
I discriminated when I chose my neighborhood. I chose a nice, clean area with good neighbors (again so much, good thing they don't discriminate also.) I think you moved there because its a better place than a bad, dirty area with bad neighbors.
Maybe your just using the wrong word
. They repulse me. I INTENTIONALLY discriminate against them.
