External influences can have a profound effect on the sovereignty of a New Testament Church. Internal influences can have an even greater effect. See: baptistcourier.com/2007/06/masons-honorable.
I guess no one wants to consider the effect freemasonry might have on church sovereignty.
Bro. James In another thread Bro. James brought up the topic of Freemasonry. Rather than respond to it there, I decided to create a new thread. I didn't notice that it has been discussed much on this site....
Just watched a video from Wretched TV where Todd is interviewing Paul Washer and Paul says its not murders that will have to fear God, or atheists, or thieves, but pastors. Paul also says that the majority of churches in America are corrupt and are into the entertainment business, rather than the Biblical business. Paul is right on! Take a walk around this board and see for yourself! There are pastors and other christians leaders on this board that are into entertaining people in their...
Word has reached my ear that some of my critics on this board believe that I hold to liberal exegesis which is completely false. Check out this article.
Liberal Christianity - Wikipedia
Instead, liberal Christian theologians have an allegorical interpretation of the Bible which emphasizes the moral or other spiritual lessons which can be learned from its stories......Many liberals prefer to read Jesus' miracles as metaphorical narratives for understanding the power of God.[9
Church is not into contact evangelism so street evangelism, open air preaching, going door to door are not activities they would engage in unfortunately. They do have a nursing home ministry and I have preached before in such environments back in SC however my preaching may be too harsh in such an environment where the church assumes everyone is saved. Yes back in SC that's what the leadership assumed and when I modeled myself after some sermons that a Ray Comfort or rev brother Paul Washer...
26 For you see your calling, brothers, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are:
29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Was listening to TWOTM Radio podcast today as I took my walk and Todd encountered an evangelical conditionalist who insisted that Hell did not go on forever. Todd repeatedly used Matt 25 which speaks of eternal life and eternal punishment for the damned but it did not sink in. How do you dodge this passage of scripture?
There has to be a difference but oftentimes the two are mingled together. I'd say heretics are those that teach anther gospel and or compromise the essential core doctrines of the faith, while a false teacher may just teach a false view on something. Ie Joel Osteen is a heretic, while according to my view those that teach Evangelical Conditionalism I believe to be false teachers.
Those that teach one has to tithe 10% in order to be...
Often we hear and read of theologians claiming that God exists "outside" of time and yet one can look in vain to find such language ever used in the Bible. They simply do not understand the nature of time. They think that time is a "dimension" or "sphere" rather than a measurement of things that have a beginning and end.
God does not exist outside of time, He just cannot be measured by time. The best way to illustrate time is to take a tape measure. A tape measure has a clip at the end...
Does God love all of the lost?
44 But I [Jesus] say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if...
John 20:31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
1. The gospel was put in writing that we may believe
2. We must believe in Jesus Christ.
3. Believing in Jesus provides new life. You are now living and no longer dead.
