No offense intended but you (JayJay) sound like you are 13 years old. Let me suggest that you grab a concordance and your Bible and do a study on the roles God has defined for men and women in His word. And don't just limit it to the New Testament (which makes it VERY clear) but see what God cursed Adam with in this life in the garden when he sinned versus what He cursed Eve with when she was deceived (clue: it wasn't earning Adam a living!). Ted Cruz makes a big deal out of being a Christian in public and he has access to the same Bible everyone else does. There is absolutely no excuse for a healthy, able bodied Christian man to have his wife out making him a living - while his children are usually being raised by strangers. God is judging this nation and I believe one of the reasons for that is because of the way men who claim His name have abdicated their GOD-GIVEN responsibilities to their familes and their wives who have been more than happy to take over.
No, she took a leave of absence from her time consuming, high powered job to help Ted run for president. It would appear that her husband's political aspirations are far more important than raising the children God blessed her with because up until now she's worked. And Ted has allowed (encouraged?) this.
Here's a quote from Sarah Palin on election night 2010: â€śThere are still the Neanderthals out there, who pick on the petty little superficial meaningless things like looks, like whether you can or canâ€™t work outside of the home if you have small children. All those type of things where I would so hope that at some point, uh, those Neanderthals, will evolve into something a bit more, um, with it, a bit more modern, and a bit more understanding that, yeah, woman can accomplish muchâ€¦â€ť.
Sarah Palin makes a big production out of being a Christian. She ought to be ashamed of herself. So should her husband and Ted Cruz.
JayJay, I didn't question anybody's salvation. I have no idea who's saved and who's not. It's not my call by any means. But for Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin or anybody else to parade themselves around as Christians, they need to adhere to Biblical admonitions if they want my vote. It makes no difference what anyone's "conviction" is. What matters is WHAT SCRIPTURE SAYS and I can make a bullet proof argument that Christian mothers shouldn't be working outside the home and shame on the man who sends her to do it. For all I know he may be saved but he is clearly violating God's word and admitting that he's incapable of providing for his own family. We live in what has up until now been the greatest country in the world. Anybody can go anywhere and do absolutely anything they want to as long as it's legal. But when you are a Christian, you have an obligation to adhere to a different standard than the world does and that means doing what God says. In His economy, Mama makes the home and raises the kids He gave her. It's not a "calling", a "conviction" or an "anointing". It's what God says to do.
I'm not nearly as concerned about her association with the CFR as I am with the fact that Cruz - who goes around presenting himself as a Christian - has his wife out earning him a living with two young children at home. He ought to be ashamed of himself and in my opinion, he's as big a hypocrite as that silly Sarah Palin. This is not an "attack on his wife". It's a rebuke of him. Ted Cruz is a phony and he's violating the clear teaching of Titus 2.5. And you can tell him I said so.
It always amazes me how people will place creeds and catechisms on the same level with Scripture - or in many cases even allow them to supersede Scripture. Often it's not unlike the way Mormons allow Joseph Smith's writings to distort the Bible or Christian Scientists allow Mary Baker Eddy to "explain" God's words. I am a grown, 58 year old man with better than average reading comprehension skills and the Holy Spirit to guide me. I don't need some man-made catechism or confession to explain (or spin) God's word for me - I can figure it out myself. And, by the way, having followed John UK's comments for years on SA I find little if anything that he's posted to be disputable and there is not an inkling of what is being thrown around as "Arminianism". In every case I've seen, he's right on the mark.
Sarah Palin is a disgrace. She goes around presenting herself as a Christian yet she openly blasphemes God's word (Titus 2.5). She has an able-bodied husband. She ought to be at home raising those children God gave her instead of trying to run the world. Worst of all, the very people who ought to be disgusted by her - "Christian" women - are her biggest fans.

John UK is absolutely correct. Jim Lincoln doesn't just attack the AV but several times (that I've seen) has attacked and in my mind, blasphemed Scripture itself. I still follow the SermonAudio news items but that's why I seldom post here anymore. I do not want to participate in a forum that allows a man - who for many years has appeared to have NOTHING else to do - to attack God's word on SermonAudio. Beware Jim Lincoln and his silly Gil Rugh links. He is a dangerous man. I often wonder why SA continues to allow him here.
Phil Robertson made two BIG mistakes: 1. He got into bed with the nasty, blasphemous A&E network for filthy lucre, and 2. He preaches from the same "version" (NIV) that the sodomites choose to use. What exactly is a "homosexual offender" anyway?
Not Kenny wrote: Kenny you are showing that you are ignorant of the whole issue on the infallibility and inerrancy of the scripture. I suppose you will now spout off some KJVonlyisms and go back to sipping koolaid right?
Not Kenny: No need to insult me and call me names unless that's all you've got. Answer my questions. Show me where I'm wrong.
Exactly which Bible is it that MacArthur believes to be inerrant? His 'study Bible' comes in an assortment of versions (but not the AV) and they all say different things.Therefore, they cannot possibly all be inerrant. Things that are different are not the same. So which one does he claim to be inerrant? He will likely claim that "the originals" are inerrant. Which "originals"? Where are they? How do we find them? This ought to be interesting.

I also found setting captives free and took the course. It was great. It is a very difficult addiction to get free from and it takes the power of God to do it. I am very thankful
John UK wrote: Rev Josh Williamson, the pastor of Craigie Reformed Baptist Church in Perth, regularly takes to the streets to hand out leaflets, talk to passers-by and do open-air preaching. But yesterday a police officer told him to stop preaching because he was breaking the law. When Rev Williamson asked the officer what law he was breaking, he replied that Williamson was in â€śbreach of the peace.â€ť ... _______________ The world looks for the wrong sort of peace. "Therefore being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ". If every minister in Scotland (and the world) were to take to the streets to "preach the gospel to every creature", law enforcement would think twice about making an arrest. As it is, the genuine ones who obey the Lord's commission are sidelined as being a bit eccentric.
