If that is the attitude of these quote "evangelicals" unquote, then it doesn't come from the Bible.
Whether it is their definition of evangelical or their definition of good government.
If you compromise with the worldly, that does not help you with a Biblical witness, what it does is oppose the true Biblical witness. God does not compromise with sinners or their sinful ways.
1John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
‚Äú‚ÄĚRecent surveys reveal that a large percentage of people who self-identify as ‚Äúevangelical‚ÄĚ do not understand even the most basic principles of gospel truth.‚ÄĚ‚ÄĚ
In a fallen world which thinks that Roman Catholics and Episcopalians are real Christians, terms like evangelical will go right over their heads.
For decades now the word evangelical has been applied by false witnesses to themselves. When it is clear that they are no more Christian than a plastic duck.
But deception has been the work of Satan and his demonic forces since the beginning. Raising the false church and false religions is one of Satan‚Äôs classic deceits in the fallen world. Even fast talking used car salesmen have been identified by the term evangelical.
Changing the definition of words is another deceit in society we have observed. All we have to do to make abominations acceptable to the ignorant is call them ‚Äúgay‚ÄĚ Thus one little three letter word enables the reprobates to ditch the Bible. THAT is where we find society today.
Many churches today use the religion of PC Liberalism so they can be nice to the sodomites and embrace them into what the describe as ‚Äúchurch‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ And the world loves them for it.
Words with double meaning help Satan to deceive mankind.
""If you go to Nevada, you can gamble, drink, and attend all sorts of shows, but here's what you can't do. If you want to worship, and you are the 51st person in line, sorry, you are out of luck,""
This is the expected competition in this fallen world, for the church.
As for being quote, "out of luck" - Christians don't do luck!!
We don't need coronavirus to highlight this type of struggle on earth.
Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."
Christians are strangers in a strange land.
John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world."
Community Temptations and Sins.? Is coronavirus the punishment of covetous christmas? (amongst other sins)
"We observe this power of temptation both socially and personally. Public temptations, such as those mentioned in Revelation 3:10, ‚Äútry them that dwell upon the earth.‚ÄĚ They also come in a combination of persecution and seduction to test a careless generation of believers. Such public temptations take varied forms.
First, public temptations come as the result of God‚Äôs judgment on those who neglect or disdain the gospel, or who, as false believers, act as traitors. God permitted Satan to seduce Ahab as a punishment (1 Kings 22:22). When the world yields to folly and false worship in their neglect of the truth, and in the barrenness of their lives, God sends ‚Äúa strong delusion, that they should believe a lie‚ÄĚ (2 Thess 2:11). This delusion comes with a judicial purpose to those who are selfish, spiritually slothful, careless, and worldly. As well, those who do not retain God in their hearts, God gives up to a reprobate mind (Rom 1:28)." (John Owen) (Temptation of Believers)
Male and female are still different - Aren't they?
Equality cannot mean interchangeable. Even science proves that.
Of course when you apply politically correct Liberalism - Then you apply the sheer stupidity of the reprobate. Not everybody has the intelligence to perceive logic and reality in humanity and society.
Two types of people in this world...... Matt 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world."
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?"
Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."
If there are people who fit into the above description - and there are - Then they would be the type of sinners who would commit fraud.
Then there are....
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,....."
"‚ÄúOur nation is steadily moving toward the elimination of the biblical worldview as the cornerstone of our society.‚ÄĚ"
Who was it that lived in this "Biblical Worldview"?
I hope there were no sinners there. That would detract from the Biblical part!!
1John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
"Religious Freedom" can be viewed from two angles. One from the perspective of the Left which is the heretic, atheist and nominal/Liberalist 'christian' view.
On the Right we have the true Christian view which is provided by the providence of God. We perceive the reprobate run world degenerating into a hellish and demonic cosmic darkness. With the environment of the antichrist and sinful man in his natural view.
We also see the way forward IN Christ.
"Religious Freedom" does not exist in this world. The Prince of this world sees to that. (John 14:30, 16:11) Satan has never been in favour of a Christian freedom around here. (See China today).
"Religious Freedom" is in fact a disingenuous idea put forward by a fallen world which at the same time, is at enmity with God and His witness.
Thus politicians do not "give" us freedom. GOD alone does that.
However GOD does not allow the reprobate fallen world to quote, 'provide,' unquote freedom. The true Christian life, message and witness of His servants on earth is manifest only in opposition to a sinful mankind. Jude 1:3 .... and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
""The pandemic, he bemoaned, ‚Äúhas resulted in previously unimaginable restrictions on individual liberty""
Does he mean the pandemic of coronavirus - Or the pandemic of satanic Liberalism??
The last couple of decades has seen the PC Liberalist pandemic reach heights in society which it never achieved before.
The visible church is a casualty of the virus of Liberalism and has been dying for years now. In fact the false witness is growing bigger and faster than ever before, because Satan and society are happier leaving it alone to play religious fiction and do-gooder.
That is why the nation of Sodom and Gomorrah is fast becoming the influential transgression in all parts of the ignorance of the fallen.
I wonder if reprobates are just stupid or or is sin increasing in influence over mankind?
Eph. 6:12. FF teaches that the spiritual realm holds power over sinners and only the armour of God prevails against such an enemy.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.‚Äú
When the Christian wrestles against ‚ÄúPowers of darkness‚ÄĚ it is usually because he/she has come upon these dark forces working in sinners. Iniquity manifesting itself in the mortal such as we see in Nevada‚Äôs people is part of this war. Not the people. They are the slaves of sin.
The victory is God‚Äôs.
The war is worldwide. The duration is history.
The Remnant is armed with God. We will win.
Nevada has taken up the wrong side in this battle. The people of Nevada lack the truth about this victory. They need the armour of God and His weapons. They display that they are ignorant, blind and alienated from God. Eph 4:18,19.
V19 States ‚ÄĒ ‚ÄúWho being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.‚Äú
Thus do we perceive God‚Äôs prophecy come true. God have mercy upon them.
John Lee wrote: I got to know them a little, and noticed their very evident spirituality, despite living in a very contrary country.
Absolutely John. I met some of the Chinese folks when I worked abroad. And yes God overcomes the millions of sinners the Remnant are surrounded by. Why just look at that dark satanic lot you have all round you ‚ÄĒ Satan is definitely the real prince of England. But the Lord helps His servants to persevere in this fallen world. Without His help we would be sunk. Deep. Our Chinese brothers are in an extremely difficult situation, with communist ideology hostile and opposed to all Christian evidence in societies. This is part of the battle the spiritual battle which God provides the armour for and the weapons of our warfare. In the U.K. we have an ‚Äúeasier‚ÄĚ time of it. But China and other parts of the world show us a possible future fighting in a country with Overwhelming satanic ‚Äėisms. Praise be to God for our relatively peaceful existence for now. But what does the future hold for the growing ‚Äėisms around today? But God will overcome. God Bless.
Satan's communist followers are panicking about the growing Chinese church. These attacks on the churches are significant of the demonic, profane and hostile fear borne belligerence in China's reprobate community.
GOD states:- Psalm 58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; 5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely. 6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. 7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces."
May the Lord Bless and be with His witness in China.
Verse :11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth." Amen.
Slowly but surely Satan and his dark forces are squeezing the Bible out of human society.
All this PC "hate speech" ideology is being used to protect some of mankind's worst sins.
The fallen world and reprobate community are trying to remove all vestiges of the Word of God and His doctrines from all nations.
Even the Liberalist "churches(?)" eg: CofE/CofS etc, are advocating the idea of rejecting the Bible. The sodomite supporter from the CofE Synod, (Jayne Ozanne) illustrates this demonic activity. Steve Chalke the false Christian and false preacher is just as satanic in his activities too. Yet both are respected by the reprobate community.
PC Liberalism is a means used by Satan to indoctrinate the unsaved into believing that God and Scripture are discriminating against the sodomite and the trans-genders. Therefore are a threat to the people.
The reprobates have more influence in western society than the Christians. Evidence of this is in the politicians and bureaucrats of western nations. Thus iniquity and transgression have more power over the secular, atheist, heretical, Godless societies and their false churches.
Ignorance, blindness and an alienation from God allows the unsaved to worship their own god - man himself. Rom 1:25. Eph 4:18.
Don‚Äôt worry folks this is not the first time the ‚Äėbureaucrats‚Äô have found results to play with and quarrel over.
Quote:- ‚ÄúUnprecedented changes in voting procedures due to the coronavirus pandemic have created openings for candidates to cry foul. Republicans argued earlier this year that extending deadlines to receive and count ballots will lead to confusion and fraud, while Democrats believe Republicans are actively working to disenfranchise voters.
Should either Trump or Biden refuse to concede, it wouldn‚Äôt be the first time turmoil and claims of fraud dominated the days and weeks after the elections.
The elections of 1876, 1888, 1960 and 2000 were among the most contentious in American history. In each case, the losing candidate and party dealt with the disputed results differently.‚Äú (the conversation.com)
Today‚Äôs controversy is great fun to watch better than any of the soaps on tv. It is top of the news on all the nations media just now. Keep up the good work.
According to the Church of England, and their sodomite synod, GOD wasted His time writing the Bible and the doctrines within the Word of God.
By rejecting the Bible these sodomites - the Liberalists - they have made themselves 'god' and decided to change all the laws, precepts and statutes revealed by GOD; and made their own rules.
With this kind of religious ridicule they are become sinless and sovereign over their lives. Without sin in their beliefs there is no need for faith in God, repentance of sin and salvation by anyone other than themselves.
"Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator"
Satan has taken over the CofE completely and its congregation belongs to him.
2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
""Jayne Ozanne and former evangelical Steve Chalke also want the Government to take action against any prayer, private conversation and preaching which does not affirm homosexual or transgender lifestyles.""
PROOF if it was necessary that the CofE is the voice of the antichrist - NOT the voice of Jesus Christ.
Satan's followers have definitely infiltrated the CofE and turned their religion into the evil UNBiblical religion of satanic Liberalism.
May the Lord remove this evil works of Satan from what is called 'church' in the CofE.
GOD clearly States:- Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
AND:- Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,"
