I resent you calling me a pig sir, when there is a much larger sty south of me.

Hey now...It's not all cold. Tee shirt weather here for the last couple of days.

Didn't call you a pig. I know the mess of Canada and many people live in immoral filth thinking nothing is wrong.

I'd have to agree with you. So i would be banned as well. Actually Dogs returning to vomit is more accurate... Vomit is but undigested food. Fundie churches are great at saying the magic prayer but not so much on living the word of God, cuz they are taught, that they need do nothing. Jesus did it all.



godspeed,

freedom

The truth is, I did come close to moving to Canada, but then I learned that the Canadian government does not define marrage as a union between one man and one woman. Also they consider abortion to be simply, a surgical procedure. So that did put the brakes on.

BTW, did you know that the real Jesus forgives your Jesus for being a greedy Republican, enemy torturing warmonger?

PS: I'm a real Christian.......not what you expect and doesn't fit your definition, does it? But that's ok. Me and Jesus go back 40 years since I was saved..........we know who we are and how we relate.........
You are condemning an innocent man. I know that I know JESUS CHRIST.

Mt 5:15 - Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.


Lu 11:33 - "No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light.
Great post!

Notice what Jesus said in His prayer for us in John 17:
John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

I believe that a people that has "come out of the world" by putting on the new man, and are living separate and non-conformed to the world are "coming out of her my people". The Church of the New Testament was fulfillment of this.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Personally, I've never had an immoral person attack me. It is true that the spirits of the world attack my soul and want to sway my course, but we must remember that God loves who we think are "immoral persons", and would desire us to show that same love to them and shine our light.. not hide it by running away like Jonah, even tho, like him, our stand may be unpopular. God gives grace for us to stand where He puts us.

The big problem is that most Christians do not completly understand the signs of the times. Many of them see some true signs. But we need to understand them all.

JESUS promised to remove the Church at Ephesus, unless they repented (read Revelation 2:1-7). So people who think the Church should always stay under all circumstances, should think again.

When the gospel is preached to all nations, then the end will come. (Matt 24:14). The end is coming! Do you not agree? It is very near.

America fits the description of Babylon perfectly. It is a dominating country, with great wealth and military power. It is hated by many in the world.

How many people do you think have the love of money in thier hearts. I believe lots of them do. They are blinded by it.

Any one who does not see how leaving a wealth wonderland like America, would help the Church, needs to pray.

We could at least move to one place in the country. Become united and strong in the LORD. No not a wierd commune. But simply Christians living, for example, within a 30 or more mile radius. Then we could ask the LORD for his guidance.

Destruction is coming to the whole world! America is going to get its final installment before many of the rest will, but it's coming to every nation. We need to be wise and not foolish. But for those who refuse wisdom, there is no help for them.

what do you base your belief on? gut feelings? or can you actually see what is in peoples hearts? Actually I see lots and lots of people acting on their faith and helping people around them. Look at all the shelters, the work programs, the faith based ministries. I think, and this is only my opinion, that anyone who spends time or effort condemning others for perceived failures, needs to get a life........and spend more time in prayer and less time watching others.

We all need to pray, regardless of what we do or do not see.

you could ask the Lord for His guidance now if you want......he may listen. But I am not ready to join another Branch Dividian or Jonestown.....particularly if it is inhabited by "prophets" who are forecasting the end times.......too many guys have forecast it, too many were charlatans.

Refuse wisdom? I'm sorry, but I have not seen you offer wisdom. If you are interested, though, I can refer you to some other "chicken little" types that you might be able to persude to follow you to you end tmes community.
