Emergent heresy grows

Surprise surprise!

Romans 1, Tony! 1 Corinthians 6:9, Tony! 1 Timothy 1:9-11, Tony!

But this is what happens when we stop reading the Bible to be "relevant."

God's word is inerrant

I like how RC Sproul put it when he was fighting for the teaching of inerrancy at a seminary. A colleague asked him why inerrancy was so important to him, what his motive was for pushing so hard for it. RC looked at him and said (paraphrase), "If I were going to give up my belief in inerrancy, it would be with tears, not a cavalier, jovial attitude."

The Bible IS inerrant and IS infallible and IS reliable. Modern liberalism says pish-posh to that and even in conservative circles about the best you get is, "oh, well it's certainly 'authoritative.'" Yeah, because it's INERRANT.

The Bible says it about itself in 2 Timothy 3:16. If you think the New Testament is scripture, then Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, was writing about the New Testament as well. The book of 2 Timothy included. Key words, "GOD BREATHED." Otherwise, on what basis is the Bible authoritative?

You can keep your theological liberalism, I rest on the Word of God.

And kitten kitten, or whatever you call yourself, because I've forgotten since I deleted your comment. Anonymous filthy comments are kind of silly, especially when it comes to political satire. I'll be praying for you, my friend. I urge you to read other posts of mine and visit the blogs I link to over on the right.

God bless.

Too comfortable

God has been so gracious to this country. We do not deserve it, but the foundation of our government, a judeo-christian worldview, has propelled us to the status of most prosperous country on the planet. Now we forget who brought us here. We thumb our noses at God and are so arrogant some even tell Him He doesn't exist. We kill children. The church waters down His gospel till it's no gospel at all.

We're too comfortable. Read the book of Judges to see what happened when His people became complacent, and even antagonistic toward God. God judges nations, ours is no different.

This is me making fun of this.

A Religious and Moral People, Lessons from History

In 1798, John Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."

He was right and almost prophetic. I fear that we are at the point in history when Americans have forgotten God, and therefore our Constitution has no basis. This is why it is ignored today, and will be ignored even more so tomorrow.

Frederick Douglas said in 1849, "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or by both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

The American people have become sheeple. We do not stand up against injustice anymore. Therefore, we will be ruled by whatever we let our leaders get away with.

"I am concerned for the security of our great nation, not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.” -General Douglas MacArthur

"Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue." -Barry Goldwater

"No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session." -Mark Twain

"The Bible is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed." -Patrick Henry

"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." -John Adams

We as a people seem to be at this point. "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship" -Sir Alexander Tytler


"We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government. Far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." -James Madison

We shall see what happens.

Consumed by Culture

I just find it ironic. For most of the history of the church, it has played a major part of guiding the culture. Unlike Islam, which spread by the sword, Christianity was spread by the love of Christ. The Church took the gospel to heart and as a result, the culture began to reform. It spread to Europe and eventually to America. All you have to do is look at our founding documents to see the influence of Christianity. Medicine and science have their roots in the Church. It hasn't been perfect by any strech of the imagination, but anywhere the Gospel has permiated the culture, the culture thrives.



Now the Church is infatuated with the culture. We worry more about the multimedia displays than the word. We expect entertainment instead of repentance. Silly skits take the place of expository preaching. People have a cow if the sound isn't adjusted just right, instead of having a cow that people are completely ignorant about the wonderful doctrines of our faith. We sit, expect a nice cooshy message (Nothing too deep, mind you. Wouldn't want people to know too much about their faith) and hope it gets done before the football game is on. Oh! Don't forget, we must have our rock and roll concert Sunday morning, too.



Yep, we should definitely let culture dictate what we do for church...

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2

Death?

Some people are saying the GOP is dead now. I say not true! It's as dead as the democrats were in 2000 and 2004. Yeah, I remember conservatives speculating on how these wins meant the death of the donkeys. Wow, wrongo!


I'll tell you when there definitely will be death. When The Most Merciful, Lord Barack Hussein Obama signs the Freedom of Choice Act, hello unrestricted abortion! Yeah, good job with the whole "reducing abortions" thing.


If you're one of those people the Lord Obama has fooled into thinking that baby death isn't the most important issue, let's ask this aborted baby. "Baby, do you think abortion is the most important issue?"

"..................."


Well there you have it, folks. Let's welcome our new Democratic Overlords.
