    Another example of the necessity of the "watch-dog" "ministry" that Apprising.org promotes.

    I struggle to understand how some believers can justify the constant attacks and gossiping (clearly prohibited in Scripture) by saying they are being "discerning."

    I listened to about 1/3rd of the second video and I found it sickening. He could have been attacking Cambellites or the RCC and I still would be repulsed by that.

    He was trite, juvenile, and misleading. I would have a hard time respecting any leader with that kind of flippant yet arrogant attitude. We should expect better from our leaders.

    Heh he gave a good imitation of Osteen. I was afraid i would lose my supper so i sneaked out early. Anyone who messes around with the Word Faith people is..............

    His father used to be at Columbia, SC. Perhaps Jr. comes by it naturally.

    We are commanded to expose and rebuke false teachers. Exposing false teachers and heretics (like Young and Osteen) is not gossip.

    Shame on you, for criticizing the use of discernment and the attacking of false teachers!

    People who fly high, far fall.

    The disciples came to Jesus and said, "Hey, there's this guy over hear preaching, and he isn't schooled and associated like we are."

    Jesus responded by stating, "Leave him alone..."

    Young would have done a lot more good to leave the reformed alone and preach Christ.

    Me too.(Or for the older folks. : I as well.)

    James found his unerring mark. He is both fun and instructive to listen to.

    How so many actually take him seriously is beyond me. But many do have itching ears. He does the most outrageous stunts yet condemns Calvinists (he can't even differentiate between them and hyper-Calvinists) and in due course burns his stawmen.

    The ranks of anti-Calvinists ranters has certainly increased over time.

    I would pay good money to see a three hour debate between Young and White.

    Bingo.

    Except White doesn't condemn Calvinists, does he? Isn't he "Reformed" himself?

    I think it should be no great surprise that people are in disagreement with Calvinism. Do Calvinist pastors not ever preach against non cal beliefs? I see nothing here for anyone to let their panties get in a wad.

    Mandy, did you watch the second video? You cannot be serious about not being appauled at Young and his rant. Remember this was a sermon.

    Where do I start. He built up so many strawmen in his sermon to attack I cannot count how many. He ridiculed another church for only having 26 baptisms in a year while his church performed 2600. So it is now fashionable to ridicule people being saved? He said his church could take over all the local churches in Dallas because they are so talented and he knows how to do it. really? Is that what we are all about? He said reformed people put God in a box and don't do envangelism, really since when? He claimed reformed pastors wear skinny jeans and think they are cool. Have you ever watched Young, he always wears skinny jeans and he thinks he is cool. He said he knows Hebrew and Greek and theology but he never even spoke about anything from the Bible in his sermon excpet half of John 3:16 to refute reformed theology and he didn't even get that right. this guy is an embarassment. He's all about himself and bean counting as proof of success. I could go?

    Ok I agree with you about all of that. But if the main subject was about anything else other than being against Calvinism would you be posting it?
