A great starting point would be to eliminate all federal funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and Planned Parenthood. Then remove all federal monies going to sanctuary cities and states. Finally, make Jim go to work and pay for his own Cheetos.
I for one hope the Prasad Scheme will be shot out of the water and sunk. Thereâ€™s no â€śholy siteâ€ť in India worth visiting. Instead, come to the Holy One of Israel, the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Convicted Sinner: â€śSirs, what must I do to be saved?â€ť Calvinist: â€śThere is nothing you CAN do to be saved.â€ť Cultist: â€śYou must do this and this and this and this and this, and keep on doing them, in order to be saved.â€ť Biblicist: â€śBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.â€ť Convicted Sinner: â€śSurely that isnâ€™t all!â€ť Biblicist: â€śSurely that IS all!â€ť Convicted Sinner: â€śBut what if Iâ€™m not one of the elect.â€ť Biblicist; â€śBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. If you believe on Jesus He will save you, and if He saves you, youâ€™re elect. God made it simple. Man makes it complicated.â€ť Convicted Sinner: â€śIf I trust Jesus to save me, do you guarantee me that He will?â€ť Biblicist: â€śNo.â€ť Convicted Sinner: â€śBut why not?â€ť Biblicist: â€śBecause itâ€™s not my place to make that guarantee. Itâ€™s Godâ€™s place to make itâ€”and He has, repeatedly, in His Word.â€ť
Spurgeon said a lot of stuff, some true, some not. But hereâ€™s what Jesus said: â€śCome unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.â€ť Christ gives salvation to sinners who come to Him by faith, not to sinners who idly sit waiting to be bowled over by His irresistible grace.
I donâ€™t know who Mr. Tippens is or was, Ladybug, but it doesnâ€™t sound like he has the same compassion and and burden for souls that Paul had when he said, â€ťTherefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.â€ť
John UK wrote: â€ś Don't forget that for good fellowship, it is not required that everyone agrees with everyone else on every point of doctrine. That is a dream, not possible.â€ť That is the most sensible and one of the most gracious things posted on this forum in a long time.
Interesting that you cited John 1:12, JUK. A preacher friend and I were discussing that verse day before yesterday. I pointed out that if a welcome guest comes to my door, I gladly open it and RECEIVE him. If he breaks down the door and forces his way in, I donâ€™t â€śreceiveâ€ť him. He is not a welcome guest at all. To receive is to courteously welcome, not to be bullied and run over.
Well, THBCC as I havenâ€™t said before, but am saying now, youâ€™re a total goofball and you probably need psych meds. None of the preachers you mentioned set out to deliberately annoy people the way you do. I know youâ€™re a legend in your own mind, but to others youâ€™re just a loudmouthed moron. And a Jewsuit.
Yes, Mike, the invisible but well-known â€śSnerdleyâ€ť on Rushâ€™s broadcast is a black man who recently founded a PAC called MAGA.BLACK. He has publicly challenged CNN to provide any proof or documentation of their allegations of racism by Rush Limbaugh. Of course they havenâ€™t because, like Jim, they CANâ€™T.
This is not meant as criticism, but rather as a sincere question. J4J and JUK, the last time(s) yâ€™all had this argument, neither of you changed his views one iota. Do you think the results will be any different this time? If not, why drag it out?
