Today, I stopped for a burger, and decided to sit down to eat. I don't usually, but this time, I felt like celebrating. I had just deposited a very nice paycheck in my bank account.
So, I ordered and sat in a booth...
Right behind me sat 3 ladies, waiting for their food.
I couldn't help but hear everything they talked about.
Who they were discussing, I did not know, but everything they said was cutting and mean.
Then they mentioned another name, and the conversation continued to slice and dice people down to size.
When their food came, They said a few choice words among themselves about the ineptness of this establishment's management.
Suddenly, they all bowed their heads, and the most beautiful prayer thanking the Lord for...
I've seen or heard statements like that for the past decade. As the years go by I hear it more frequently.
Although Ive heard this from all types of people, the common thread is that these people, a) think that statement is logically sound, and b) they think that they stand on some moral higher ground.
What say you? Is the title of this thread contradictory to what scripture teaches?
To this day, Christian baptism requires a person to solemnly" renounce the devil and all his works" and to accept exorcism. Rereading biblical and extra biblical accounts of angels, I learned first of all what many scholars have pointed out: that while angels often appear in the Hebrew Bible, Satan, along with other fallen angels or demonic beings, is virtually absent.

Need advice on defending a friend of mine about to be homeless, kicked out of the local mission...?
I know they have no good reason for kicking him out, so, I plan on giving this letter to the director John Roy tomorrow... Need advice...?
Think It's a good idea...?
Oh, and the director and the mission organization claims to be "Christian", and the director John Roy, is also a pastor/preacher...
Here's the letter:
Dear John Roy,
I would like to know why Tyler Stephanich is getting kicked out of the Mission on the first of this next month please...?
He is my friend, and I wish you knew what that means, but, anyway, he is my friend and I want to know "why" he is getting kicked out...?
He is "trying" his best to get out of there, he...
Over the last two to three decades this term has been used to draw people into these churches because they don't want to be connected to a denomination convention for good reason, since really when you think about it there are no denominations in scripture, however that being said if a church hires a pastor out of seminary which is not found in scripture as well, the theology of that seminary becomes the denomination for the church that pastor heads up.
Basically everything that man was taught at his seminary, he will be beholden to as he instructs his congregation.
The important thing for each one of us is does the message we hear line up with God's Word? Also never put your trust in any man but in Christ our Savior and his spoken...
