12 homeless vacate Wiley Drake's Buena Park church after shelter declared unsafe
Former SBC Vice President Wiley Drake "said the city was invading his church’s property and the privacy rights of the homeless."
"City officials said the building has no proper emergency exits, no certified fire alarm or smoke detection system, and a hazardous electrical system. Drake disputed the findings."
"City officials said...
1 "Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (the 2nd coming) will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts...
Is it the tracts or just passing out the gospel? I have 10-15K in tracts. I have lots of varieties of tracts and pass them out often and everywhere. Just today ordered a pack of tracts with a photo of Hitler on the front that I plan to mail out to every abortion center in the Denver metro area. But I will also preach the gospel JonC as I always do.
I wonder if I am just obsessed with the tracts or obsessed with evangelism itself. Another WOTM evangelist on FB boasts of passing out 100K...
Universal redemption must be denied in the very sense of Calvinists themselves, whether predestination is acknowledged or no, if we acknowledge that Christ knows all things. For if Christ certainly knows all things to come, he certainly knew, when he died, that there were such and such men that would never be the better for his death. And therefore, it was impossible that he should die with an intent to make them (particular persons) happy. For it is a right-down contradiction [to say that]...
Acts 2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
What, in your opinion, was the miracle at Pentecost? Were the disciples given the ability to speak all these different languages or were those present given the ability to hear the message in their own language while the disciples preached in their...
Could a kind soul help me with simple definition of these terms and how they are related to one another?
Evey year millions upon millions of humans make them, resolutions. Even I used to make them, that is until I discovered that the first thing broken soon after the holidays wasn't a present, but a well thought out resolution.
If you still resolve to switch a bad behavior with a new and improved one, what will yours be for 2017 and beyond???
And based on history, how successful have you been in keeping the resolution?
Question for asterisktom and Biblicyst:
Mat 5:45 . . . for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good. . . .
Does the sun go round the earth, or is it the earth going round the sun and spinning on its axis? If it's the latter, did Christ know better?
If Christ knew better, then why not just say, he bringeth the evil and the good into the light of the sun? It's what we all think is really happening anyway. Why not say it that way instead of fostering ignorance and superstition?
