September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

1John 5:16  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
1Jn 5:17  All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.


I've always wondered what this passage means every time I read it...until today when I feel I have a much better understanding of it(I think).

I'll give a couple of examples here(they may not be the best examples, but you know what I'm trying to get at here)...

1) Just about every "church" I've been too - almost every time I point out to someone how the pastor is doing certain things wrong, it's not so much they say "Judge not lest ye be judged..." - but they say stuff like, "The other leaderships in the church likely rebuked him for it, so we don't have to say anything".(but somehow these pastors continue to do these wrongs)

2) I once knew a professing Christian who left his church b/c it was getting involved with Rick Warren nonsense - so the next one he chose seemed OK...pastor preaching the proper salvation message, watching end times prophecies, firmly pre-trib, etc. However, HOWEVER - he did Rick Warren's "40 Days of Purpose" 'studies'. No, his church didn't yoke up with Warren(like the previous one), but just did his "studies" one time and that was that. But nonetheless the pastor just acted like he did it "out of curiosity"(and noone questioned it).

Like I said - these aren't exactly the best examples(as these are 501c3, NIV-preaching churches) - but nonetheless here's the point I'm trying to drive home...

Like this passage says, as believers, we don't lose our salvation - but nonetheless it still says that if a believer sin a sin, then they should be rebuked and exhorted for it(if I understand the context of this passage correctly), right? Ultimately - if they don't get rebuked and exhorted for their wrong-doings, they're going to keep on doing what they're doing and go into back-slide mode.

I bring this up b/c I've went through this in many of my experiences(both as a lost man, and a saved man) - every time I or others in group settings would give someone the benefit of the doubt over something they really did wrong, over the long haul it would leaven the entire lump of the basket.

Galatians 5:7  Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
Gal 5:8  This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
Gal 5:9  A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
Gal 5:10  I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

“Hardly anything else reveals so well the fear and uncertainty among men as the length to which they will go to hide their true selves from each other and even from their own eyes.”

“To expose our hearts to truth and consistently refuse or neglect to obey the impulses it arouses is to stymie the motions of life within us and, if persisted in, to grieve the Holy Spirit into silence.”

“Promoting self under the guise of promoting Christ is currently so common as to excite little notice.”
