Yes, thank God it's gone from real executions to mere verbal threats of an unscriptural mythological hell.

Yes

20Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: 21“Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? . A ministry of do's and don'ts and you must and you mustn't, or else..

ps

I am not kidding about the dark ages , it's only because in many ways the world justice system has become more civil than the fundamental church system we are not frying at the stake .

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. (2 Tim. 2: 3-4)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9DHgnKeAxo

This IS the time for all Soldiers in Christ everywhere to get up, join forces, and "SHAKE" the world for our Lord Jesus Christ! It's really time to make a difference wherever we are in this world. As the "body" of Christ, and Jesus being the Head Commander-in-Chief, it IS time for us the "body" to WAKE UP out of our slumber! Folks are hurting all over the world! People still need the Lord! Jesus our Commander-in-Chief needs us, His "body" to MOVE in obedience, amen?

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
(Ephesians 6: 11-21)



As we all should be. Friends, brothers and sisters in the faith, Satan knows that his time is short and is stepping up his efforts to deceive as many as possible. And, in the evil of his own imagination....still believes he can defeat the Almighty God! Make no mistakes, he WILL launch his plan to accomplish all that he couldn't do in heaven, amen? I can't hear you!!! You might as well say AMEN.....for we know who wins right? And, if you don't know, check it out! It's right there in the back of the BOOK!! Wouldn't you want to find yourselves on the winning side? I know I do! God bless you all. Stay strong and endure to the end.

The irony and pathos of such misguided zeal is suffocating to the souls of all who "love God and each other."

You all know who you are that support me, and those that do not.

I pledge to keep them occupied while you all can talk about the more edifying tenets of the faith that lift up the body of Christ. I will be your soldier here.

I don't mind a good fight for Christ.

God bless you all in His Holy name, Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, our Counsellor and Advocate.

Great post! Count me in too!
