Americans Rank Billy Graham Among World's 'Most Admired' Men for 58th Time
Americans named Billy Graham the number four "Most Admired Man" in world of 2014 according to U.S. polling agency Gallup. The polling results mark the 58th time that the 96-year-old televangelist has made the top 10 list.

The pollster's telephone survey results from 805 U.S. adults ages 18 and older placed Graham, referred to as "America's pastor," in the top 10 list of most admired men in the world for 2014.

Two percent of poll participants named him as their first or second choice when asked "What man that you have heard or read about, living today in any part of the world do you admire most." ...

D. Isleworth, what Billy G., said out of the t.v., pulpit even during the adverts when he was on t.v., was many times false, as was pointed out, q.v., In the pulpit, I don't remember him uttering anything false on salvation, but of course Schuller, or [URL=http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/finney.htm]]]Charles Grandison Finney[/URL] I don't think they ever uttered any thing true about the Gospel. I agree with you about revivals, [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/revival.htm]]]Revival in the Church--Do We Need It?/Is It Biblical?[/URL] for printed material, or a sermon, [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=21304175924]]]Theology of Experience vs. Scripture[/URL]
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Most verses used to promote revival are taken from the Old Testament directed to Israel in a certain historical context and they are pulled out of that context and applied to the church because the name revival appears somewhere in the verse. Many of the verses that they use have to do with a personal revival of an individual having his life right with the Lord, have nothing to do with revival meetings....
part of the summary of the above sermon, take a look at the whole summary.

Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

According to Jesus "many" will borrow His name and try to use it - But fail completely. Thus many church goers are not Christian and Jesus does not know them (v23). These are destined for eternal punishment in hell.

So when you ask the question and make the point that the reprobate can actually pass the test of quote "doing good" in the light of bible doctrine and the fact of reprobation by God - your definition of good does not exist in the spiritual realm.

No human is "good" enough or worthy to enter heaven. (Why Christ had to suffer crucifixion)
ALL sinners deserve the punishment of hell and damnation. All are guilty.
Doing "good" is beyond the capacity and ability of all mortals.
Total Depravity is a fact - sin is not a partial condition.

"Being evil" -
Matt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, BEING EVIL, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Faith is the gift of God not a human faculty or ability.

Romans 14:23 for whatsoever is not of faith is sin
Prov3:33 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
Sinners know how to do good to their neighbour but still remain guilty before God.
They exercise a sinful active will for which they are responsible for.
Its only sovereign grace which saves Gods elect
To deny free will does not deny man responsibility but only his ability to believe the gospel by his own decision and choice. Its the work of the Holy Spirit that quickens dead sinners not their free will.

Matthew 7:11
"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Well even though you ignored my scriptures, I will address yours. Christ was speaking to His disciples (see Mt 5:2)and even though they were in Him, compared to His righteousness and the righteousness of His heavenly Father, they were considered evil. I think that is the main thought He was trying to give. I could paraphrase and say, if you being in the flesh know how to give good things to your children, then ...

You should bring up the Centurion; he is a much better argument. But, I would simply say since he was one of the elect of God, saved before the foundation of the world, then God saw him doing righteous things prior to his salvation being known by him or by others. In other words, he was saved before the world began. God can declare anyone or anything to be righteous; we would agree on that.

Anyway, do you have any opinion of the verses I quoted?

Lastly, positionally, I am absolutely perfect before my heavenly Father. If I don't have the imputed righteousness of Christ, then I will not enter into His heavenly kingdom.

If they are not in Christ, how can they do anything righteous. So, if they decide to give money to a poor person, is that a good work if it was done without the Spirit's prompting? Could that not be considered a self-righteous act. Christ said without Him, we could do nothing. And scripture teaches that an unsaved person "cannot" bear good fruit.
So, an unsaved person cannot choose to do good or do good. They cannot bear fruit aside from being in Christ. TOTAL DEPRAVITY. When Paul said there was none good, no not one, I think he meant what he said; "none good, no not one".
[10] As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: [11] There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. [12] They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

The gift of faith enables the Christian to receive the truth (2Thes 2:10-12) and the truth sets them free. (John 8:32)

WCF Shorter Catechism;
Q. 31. What is effectual calling?
A. Effectual calling is the work of God’s Spirit, whereby, convincing us
of our sin and misery, enlightening our minds in the knowledge of Christ
[a], and renewing our wills [b], he doth persuade and enable us to
embrace Jesus Christ [c], freely offered to us in the gospel [d].
[a]. Acts 26:18; ICor. 2:10, 12; II Cor. 4:6; Eph. 1:17-18 [b]. Deut. 30:6; Ezk. 36:26-27; John 3:5; Titus 3:5 [c]. John 6:44-45; Acts 16:14 [d]. Isa. 45:22; Matt. 11:28-30; Rev. 22:17

In Calvinism, the wicked are free to choose with a generous limit how perverse they wish to be. Frank takes full liberty to explore the depths of wickedness possible.

Cont. Days before Zamperini's death last summer, Angelina Jolie ( who directed the film) pulled out her laptop and showed him a rough-cut version of the movie from his hospitable bed. Jolie and Zamperini had forged a friendship in the months leading up to the filming, causing Jolie to choke back tears as she recalled his grandfatherly way during a later interview with 'Variety' magazine. The movie came out Christmas and from what I have heard it's not for the squimis.

Movie "Unbroken" misses the reason for Zamperini's hope.Zamperini won fame in the 1936 Olympics as a track athletie. During world War 11, he and another airman survived a plane crash at sea and then 47 days in a raft. Zamperini then spent more than two tortuous years as a Japanese war prisioner.
Angry and tormented after the war, Zamperini numbed himself with acholol until the day of his conversion in 1949 at a Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles. He spent the rest of his life inspiring Christian hope in young people and others.
Pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie told "The Christian Post" in September, that he was disappointed to hear that the movie omits Zamperini's conversion. "To me, the most amazing part of his story...was the fact that Louie was able because of his conversion and new found Christian faith, to go back to Japan to the very guards who mistreated him and forgive them, as well as tell them about Jesus Christ." Laurie said.

Strange, Mike of NY, you say aren't one of these, but your "action speaks louder than words."
The Christian Right movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, Notes on Reconstructionism. Conservative Christians are overlooking The Inadequacy of Moralism and of political action. Dominion Theology/Kingdom Now/Reconstructionism is an anti-Biblical curse.

Looks like you didn't make a New Year's resolution to get rid of the irrelevant boring references, and try something new.
