Hi Frank, for me it is useful to start with the understanding that executive orders are not law, but temporary rulings. Legislatures are the lawmakers in the context of thIs nation that God has allowed to come into existence. When governors or mayors continue so called emergency powers and attendant selective non medical rulings after the emergency passes, or in this case no medical issue exists, it is they who disobey the law. I guess the question would be whether obeying a criminal in his disobedience is biblical.

Itâs almost as if they are disappointed that Africans arenât dying en masse and countries are not collapsing.

Salvation of the sinner is a most amazing thing. A lot of things happen in conversion, which is why many preachers focus on the gospel message week in and week out.
Galatians 2:20 KJV (20)Â I am crucified with Christ...
This was Paul's testimony, and it happens to everyone that is born again. To understand what "I" means in this text is a great progress in the Christian faith.
Those who believe in baptism by immersion symbolise this dying with Christ by going down into the water, and the new life in Christ by rising up out of the water.
The spiritual reality of this biblical experience is the ending of something, and the beginning of something, such that the convert is a "new creature in Christ", clearly visible to those around them; maybe not immediately because they are a babe, but in time there will always be the evidence of God's grace in their life.
Especially, sin does no longer have dominion over them; they are free. They are free to serve the Lord, even with their faults and failings, which come from the flesh (not the inherited sinful nature).
Dr. Rugh wrote: Godly sorrow will always bear the fruit of repentance. This sorrow over sin goes beyond mere regret over sin and the resulting consequences. The repentance godly sorrow produces results in a real and actual change of life, ceasing from sin, and turning from sin. Repentance from sin is in effect a change in thinking about sin and that change in thinking results in a change in conduct. The repentance from sin included in initial saving faith then continues ongoing as the believer lives in pursuit of holiness and spiritual growth.
summary for, "Godly Sorrow Leads to Repentance"
Dr. Rugh has done an excellent sermon on repentance and why it is necessary for a Christianâđ There's certainly non-Christian repentance, but some haven't even reached that stage yet.
So the leader of the worldâs premier false religion, Pope Francis, mentioned the name of the worldâs premier false martyr, George Floyd. Whoop-de-do. Did he mention the names of any of the police officers who have been shot in recent months? Of course not.

By the way John of UK, my last message pointed out that repentance is a requirement to being saved âđ
19. serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears, and with trials which happened to me by the plots of the Jews; 20. how I didnât shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, teaching you publicly and from house to house, 21. testifying both to Jews and to Greeks repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus.
Ladybug wrote: The one thing Trump got right was stating he has never repented of sin...good thing. For repentance from sin is never included as a 'condition' to be saved. Every person alive on this earth right now is a sinner, even the elect. You don't stop sinning when God saves you, He does not take away the sin nature. What He does do is open the mind to the fact that you cannot be saved based on your foolish attempts at stopping something you have no ability to stop. When your foundations are faulty, i.e., your 'gospel', then everything thereafter will be faulty as well. Those who disagree like to trot out that 'antinomian' accusation, proving they themselves are void of understanding it is grace that saves, not grace plus what you think you do...antinomian means 'no law', so in essence those who accuse of this must then adhere to 'law' as a means of salvation. "For as many as are of works of the Law are under a curse, for it has been written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue all things having been written in the book of the Law, to do them." Galatians 3:10. Fleeing sin is NOT a condition for salvation.
There are several foundational things wrong with this statement. Someone else might like to point them out.
All the conservative Trump supporters should feel foolish right now, Trump nominates a stealth deep-stater for Supreme Court Justice. Pro-lockdown and pro-mandatory vaccination. I think the guy is clueless. His own daughter and son-in-law are Christ-haters, as well as that fool Netanyahu. America, and the world, is getting what she deserves. No way out of this one, folks. No one is getting away with anything. No one. Kiss your beloved 'America' goodbye.
"do not love the world or the things of the world"...
14. Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15. and saying, âThe time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.â
but kept declaring both to those of Damascus first, and also at Jerusalem and then throughout all the region of Judea, and even to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds appropriate to repentance.
Nancy it's just paying attention to the Pope-in at least one area anyway. There's more than abortion at stake, for Catholics anyway
