BMcCausland, the post isn't about the issue of crafty preachers. It is about the blessing of the Incarnation and verses from the Word of God that should be the joy and rejoicing of our heart. Your message will not be seen by the preachers you disdain. There is always going to be problems in Christianity and so called Christianity that ought to be lamented. There is also a time to rejoice in the truths of Scripture and it will do us all well to focus on the joys we have in Christ and not just the problems that surround us
At no point have I said or embraced that today is the day on which our Savior was born. There are plenty of Biblical references to the honoring of His Incarnation regardless of what day the blessed event happened
Cv, please I am not in anyway trying to be deceptive in my comment. I have stated for many years here that I believe thanksgiving and celebration of the Incarnation should be a daily part of the life of the believer. If it had not happened we would be doomed. That alone is cause for celebration.
What the unregenerate do or donât do is not a determinant factor in my glorying in the mercy of God in leaving the glories of heaven to take upon Himself the nature of man.
Even ladybugâs sermon reference and post is based upon Alexander Hislops discredited work Two Babylons, so I give it no credibility. If there are those who wish to believe it, that is between them and the Lord.
I am for praise and honor to the Lord for His undeserved mercy in coming to Earth and dying in our stead on Calvary. No Incarnation, no Calvary it is that simple.
The SA post is nothing but Scripture, one would think all of us would have no issue with that regardless of the day it was posted.
Thanks for your response John. So Daniel should have jot gone along with Nebuchadnezzars decree at the end of chapter 4 of Daniel? or Darius decree in chapter 6? The Jews should not have returned to their land by decree of Cyrus? Mordecai should not have made a decrre in Esther?
An addressing your statement ygat they should not join in a march.
What did our Lord say, he that is not with us is against us. I would agree thus is not a Christian endeavor
God is not the author of confusion. Planning is critical if one is to accomplish the goals laid out in 1 Timothy 4:13 and other places in Scripture. There needs to be an openess to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and i have seen what was planned thrown out the window so to speak for what actually happened during the service. But as the old saying goes if you aim at nothing you will surely hit it
John Lee wrote: Actually brother I am not saying anything directly. I am asking a question as to the whereabouts of the exhortation of Jesus which, in modern English, reads: âSo donât worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Todayâs trouble is enough for today." Matthew 6:34 NLT Therefore, if you find that a future event is causing you much anguish or stress, Jesus tells you to stop worrying about it. You have quite enough on your plate to worry about today, never mind tomorrow. Or do you have a different interpretation of the text, brother? If so, let me hear it. Thank you.
Nope, that is how I see, just wanted clarification thanks for your answer.

So I get to miss a lot of Chinese propaganda because most of these sites mentioned in the SA article say that I have to subscribe before I can read much stuff on them. "Every cloud has a silver lining?"
That is good news. You spread enough propaganda on this site as it is.
