Are We Mixing Politics with Religion? And Thoughts on Last Night’s Creation-Evolution Debate

Some Honest Questions for Pastor Andy Stanley, and Updates on Campus Morality and on Broadcasting Freedom

  1. how can any truly born again Christian relying upon TEACHINGS (Torah) come to any conclusion other than the nearly 95% ‘Christian’ Germany, Lutherans, Catholics, leading up to BOTH World Wars I, II, were not ‘World lovers’ ? (had never taken up as ‘professing’ Christians, ‘their OWN cross’ unto ‘entire sanctification’, from even listening to any preaching, religious, secular, political, combined, which even hints in Torah of a ‘millennial kingdom reign’, for them 3rd Reich of a thousand years, on this tiny ‘footstool’ & ‘copy’ only, of what the faith of Abraham came to know of those heavenly ‘dirt PATTERNS’ above, the place of Yeshua Messiah’s voluntary death, burial, resurrection IN THE FLESH, BUT needing a COMPLETE “PERFECTION” FROM HIS OWN FLESH temporal down here also, by His ‘rising’ eternal FROM HERE, even as said for ‘to prepare a place for HIS TRUE followers up THERE, not down here, EVER)

  2. Amy,

    I posted this many posts ago and am not sure if you have seen it:

    I have answered you thoroughly…too thoroughly 🙂 in posts 119, 124, 157, 158, 162, 163, and 164. You might also like to read 147 to get a better picture of who I am. Let me know what you think.


  3. quite sure most people on this original ‘public’, not ‘private’, thread would more be interested in most recent ‘resumes’, i.e. most recent Christmas Day controversy of Dec.25,2014, in the life of a professing ‘twice born’ in this tiny ‘footstool’, especially as to whether all the law was kept, all hours, every minute of that particular most recent famous day, therefore (by doing 24 hrs. what is preached, entirely) & remaining with excellent conscience in retaining ‘baptism’ under the AUTHORITY OF THE F-THER of Messiah Yeshua, still ‘born again’, having committed no ‘sin’ on that special day ESPECIALLY BEING PREACHED AGAINST (saying ‘have not sinned’, this last Christmas day, for ‘sin is transgression’ of the law ?). What a bunch of ‘croc’, but not waste of time in trying to understand a fellow claimant of desiring retaining a ‘twice born’ statis before the SOURCE and F-ther (not simply a ‘jesus’ of one’s own CHOICE ? NOR the Holy Spirit sent by the F-ther AND NOT sent by a ‘jesus’ of many offers to CHOSE FROM ? BEING ‘many more VOICES ever increasing in this ‘footstool’, far beyond even Paul’s day, being ‘listened’ to, WITH ever increasing emotions reaching out from the right side of the ‘outer’ AMAZING ability of the FLESH ‘OUTER brain’

  4. As to ‘Christ Mass’ day ? a true believer does not teach others to follow ‘that day’ either, as a ‘special day of worship’, for ‘today’ and/or also for ‘proof’, they are truly of the Bride of Christ, and of the ‘real’ Ruach Elohim baptism, in the AUTHORITY of the F-ther of Yeshua Messiah now IN HEAVEN, as ‘ONE NEW MAN’ themselves ?

  5. I don’t know if this has been shared before here or otherwise, but I thought it was the most information I’ve ever gotten on the subject of when Yeshua/Jesus was born.

    I think it might surprise you!

    The Lecture/Sermon from Steve Shermett starts at 16:29. If you want to skip past the (Hebrew) liturgy beforehand, go to that point on the time counter: 16:29

    Shalom & a belated Merry Christmas 🙂

  6. Bo, I answered you on the “Does God Require All Believers to Observe the Torah?” thread today. Thank you for replying to my comments — but each time I read you I become firmer in my conviction that you’re wrong 🙂
