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.”

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."

‘Their Path Will Lead to Destruction’: Former Mars Hill Pastor Mark Driscoll Reveals the 3 Types of Christians He Says Jesus Might Reject

There is only one type of Christian, the born again kind.  Roll Eyes

Pastor Mark Driscoll — who recently planted The Trinity Church in Phoenix, Arizona, a year and a half after resigning from well-known megachurch Mars Hill amid controversy — warned in a blog post this week about the three types of Christians he believes Jesus might reject.

“People tend to be religious by nature, which means they think they can justify themselves in one of three ways,” Driscoll wrote. “First, loosely religious people assume they are living a good enough life and that no spiritual devotion or extra effort is required on their behalf for God to be pleased with them when they stand before God at the end of this life.”

The preacher said that the second group of “secular religious people” might work hard at a social cause and think that they are good people who want to overcome the bad that evil people do in the world. Driscoll then characterized the third group as religious individuals who work hard to keep to the rules and regulations of a faith “in an effort to justify themselves as good and obedient people in the sight of God.”

Driscoll went on to note that Jesus said in the Bible that there is truly no middle ground when it comes to having faith in him.

“People either will or will not respond to his words in faith. For those who respond, his words will lead to life, produce good fruit, and a sturdy foundation,” Driscoll wrote. “For those who don’t, their path will lead to ‘destruction,’ they will be ‘cut down and thrown into the fire,’ and excluded from heaven.”

He continued, “In Matthew 7:21–23, Jesus rebukes false disciples who assume their relationship with Jesus was based upon what they did for him rather than what he did for them.”

Those verses read, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”

Throughout the remainder of the text, Driscoll warns Christians to look out for false prophets, the biblical meaning of justification and his claim that “you cannot meet Jesus without changing.”

“The Bible teaches that unjust sinners can be declared just or righteous in God’s sight by being justified, or obtaining justification (Rom. 2:13; 3:20). This legal term appears some 222 times in various forms throughout the New Testament,” Driscoll explained. “‘Justification’ refers to a double transaction whereby God takes away our sinful unrighteousness through Jesus’ substitutionary death in our place on the cross and imputes to us the righteousness of Jesus Christ, thereby giving us positive righteousness.”

The pastor said that it is essential yo change if one wishes to one day meet, though he said that one must be careful not to wage judgements.

“My point in this is not to give you a gavel by which to go around pronouncing judgment on others,” Driscoll concluded. “But rather, for each of us to examine our own life to see if we have truly met Jesus and if so how he has changed us.”

As TheBlaze has reported, Driscoll resigned from Mars Hill Church in late 2014 after a string of controversies.
