“Gender fluid???” What you’re going to be a woman one day and a male the next? I can’t believe those words fell so casually from that woman’s lips…
Dr Brown I am a Christian I dont believe in bringing condemnation on Gays !The shear number of them tells me there has to be a problem in their make up that causes this freak of nature to accur Is it wrong yes it is wrong because it wasent meant to be! Like a child that is born cripple or with cancer . God made us and yet we are born with all kinds of mallidies .Today we live in a more knowlegable world then in the bible days when men were more spiritual. I would love to view you reply!
None of us believe in condemning gays, we believe in uphold God’s standards of sexual morality and marriage while reaching out to all human beings with the love of God. Do you accept what God says in His Word? If so, then this is the path you must follow as well.
Because of time constraints, I’m unable to interact here, but please do call the show one day to get further clarification.
If we are going to teach on the wrath of God, we must also teach on the fear of God also. The two are not quite the same.
I believe there is such a thing as an ungodly fear of God. But if we do have a good foundation on the goodness, mercy, and grace of God, then we should be able to arrive at a godly fear by hearing about his wrath, which I believe is just as great as his mercy.
I don’t know of a better place to learn about the fear of God than by the book of Job, though the fear of God can be found anywhere in the Bible.
Writers often will put their main point at the end.
Job summed up his position at the end of his arguments, which seemed to be a development over a period of time.
Elihu put something wonderful at the end of his part and here it is:
….with God is terrible majesty.
Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
That’s pretty much the sum of it, but to really begin to get that, it seems to be necessary to read the whole book.
It’s like we are living in a time in America when the fruit of what’s been sown is showing some maturity. I couldn’t help but notice the word anarchy, and it’s time for a change. It’s time for something different. What we are seeing in America politically and in society is no cherry tree. I think about political anarchy.
God started out in his talk with Job from the whirlwind right away with something he had against him, a cause, if we want to call it that, and then proceeded to question him about all of the good things he does in his excellent majesty, and continued to put things in their proper place, and then this encounter with the Almighty ends with some revelation of a terrible creature called Leviathan.
So we have the majesty of God, and then the contrast of the horribleness of this thing called Leviathan.
And then there’s something important God wants us to know about at the end of the book, because we have to have hope.
My prayer is that God will bring it all together for us, restoring the Church, and then America, and the rest of the world, if he will.
The scales of the children of the world are so far off, so corrupt, and they are so proud of them, being so many, and so close together, all of them in need of a dramatic change.
Because of your use of the term “freak of nature” when referring to those who practice homosexuality, I can’t help thinking you’re a troll.
I believe people become freakish out of the fallen nature of man, through godlessness working itself out through process of time which happens when men reject God. When men refuse to acknowledge God, or own up to whatever it is they need to own up to, they blame their birth or something or someone else, and in that way avoid their deliverance and ruin their future.
“When men refuse to acknowledge God, or own up to whatever it is they need to own up to, they blame their birth or something or someone else, and in that way avoid their deliverance and ruin their future.”
Maybe I should add “or at least postpone it”, because I remember the ending of the book of Job.
To answer the question posed, about when was the last time anyone heard a pastor speak on the wrath of God – I did hear that fairly recently at my local Calvary Chapel in New Mexico. I also remember that pastor speaking out against homosexuality – just telling us what is in our Bibles about that – and I remember a couple standing up at that point and walking out of church. I watched and wondered if anyone else was going to get up and leave. For a split second I was imagining what it would be like if almost everyone did that! And I knew I would be among those who remained in my seat, even if I were the only one, because I know what the Word of God speaks on this issue. Well, that couple was the only one to leave, and at one point in his sermon, people actually applauded, because they recognized that he was/is a man of conviction – and this is the time to stand.
But I see a general lack of conviction today. I see a lot of “herd following” going on. I suppose society has always moved that way. People are very conscious of perceived “trends” and don’t want to stand out from “the new norm.” It’s clear that part of the gay activist agenda has been to “normalize” homosexuality. So there’s a lot of money spent in the media to portray gays as the real “modern” family of today; and in the most sympathetic light possible. I certainly don’t want anyone treated badly, but it’s clear that we (in America, and hence the world) are being socially engineered to find homosexuality more and more acceptable. It’s clear that we are being “taught” how to think and feel about everything, really, and these tactics play into some kind of insecurity humanity has about being apart from the main group. The group thinks this way, it’s believed, and so – to be accepted by the majority, we mustn’t differ from it. So the idea of the group which accepts homosexuality as good and fine is exaggerated in our eyes to the point where many think, “Well, everyone thinks this way, I may as well go along, or at least appear to be.” I personally don’t think that way because I know what the Bible’s position is, but I recognize that for many people, that ‘group mind’ is very, very important to them.
There is also the disparaging of the “fundamentalist” Christian as being narrow-minded and undereducated. The charge is always, “You’re a black-and-white thinker. There are so many different shades of gray.” And yet God tells us, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days…” [Deut. 30:19-20] Nothing “grey” about that — we have an either/or choice!
The popular, subversive media has succeeded in planting the idea of Christians as hopelessly out-of-touch, a “laughing stock” to mock – from SNL’s “Church Lady” to “Ned Flanders” on The Simpsons — clueless, dorky dweebs or self-righteous finger-wags or worse still, lecherous hypocrites who preach “fire and brimstone” but chase the piano player around the pulpit when no one is around.
When I was still a teenager, living in my parents’ home in the 1970’s, my mother became a member of the “Jehovah’s Witnesses” sect. I remember her lecturing us on Jesus being “a man, not a god!” and on there being no hell, and passionately quoting verses and saying, see, the dead know nothing, there is no hell, there is just the grave, until the resurrection. “A God of Love”, she would say, “would never torment anyone forever and ever.” I think these beliefs are why many people are throwing out the idea of hellfire with both hands. I’m also seeing a lack of belief in the inerrancy, or the reliability, of scripture. There is the notion that “men wrote the Bible” so it has no sure authority. I can’t count the number of times people have said to me, literally, “Well, men wrote the Bible, not God.”
I was logged into an online forum not long ago in which a senior member wrote that she didn’t believe in hellfire. And even though Jesus refers to it many times in parable after parable, this didn’t seem to sway her. What I think people do nowadays is decide, “that’s not the Jesus I believe in.” So their concept of Jesus is ripped out of his own historical context, a Rabbi from the House of David. Even his actual words are disregarded because, again, “the Bible was written by men.” So their “Jesus” is someone who doesn’t condemn anything that they don’t condemn. He doesn’t judge, He is “all love, all the time” and there is no severity, no wrath – because that’s old-time religion, that’s the past, that’s passé.
I believe there is just no substitute for a person reading the Bible for themselves, from beginning to end, studying it, prayerfully. The words there have convicting power because they are special, and unlike any other book. Once we really take them to heart and soul, no one can pull them out. We know the difference between what is written there and what the world is telling us. The wrath of God is coming. The wickedness of the world is increasing.
I see fear, too, in people’s minds that they will lose their jobs or their friendships if they take an “unpopular” position on issues today. Many people do not have jobs whose main description is to speak the Biblical truth; the threat of getting the rug pulled out from them is becoming more and more real, and this is part of the tactic of those who want to force the LGBTQ agenda. There is a growing reign of terror of sorts, and I’m not speaking only of the rise of Islam, but of the fear of reprisal by the gay lobby, which has positioned itself to punish dissent.
But as the saying goes, “A coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies but one.”
We just have to stand with our Master, and trust Him, and lean upon Him for strength, because He has already overcome. But no doubt about it, we are facing hard times ahead. I am encouraged by the joy shown in the early apostles to be counted worthy to suffer for Christ.
“So their “Jesus” is someone who doesn’t condemn anything that they don’t condemn.”
So true. They do not realize that they are actually worshiping themselves, and not YHWH. It is the age old sin of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil…deciding for themselves what is right and wrong instead of believing and doing what YHWH has instructed. They do not think that eating from the wrong tree will bring death. It is pleasing to the eye and they will look wise to the world if they continue to eat of that deceptive tree.
People have always been followers instead of bucking the crowd to go the right way. The gate is straight and the way narrow and it goes the opposite way of the world.
The Rougher Way
So many times I’ve heard it said,
“The way to hell is smoothly paved
with the high and good intentions
of those that think they’re surely saved.”
But those that turn around and climb
the rocky path to heavens gates,
though they stumble often times,
for their good deeds, reward awaits.
It’s NOT the heart or thought that counts,
though pure and noble they may be,
if the hands and feet attached
are pointed toward the flaming sea.
The only kind of faith that’s true
is clearly seen by all around.
It’s not belief or what we say
but what we DO on earthly ground.
The Creator of our world has said
He fights against the ones that think
that they can go their asphalt way
proudly blinded to how low they sink.
But grace and strength await the soul
that can bring himself to say
“I was wrong…I’ll do Your will.”
And continue up the rougher way.
Like sheep we tend to go along with the crowd. I suppose if we don’t, we are considered to be lost by the rest, even though we may be one of the saved.
Yes the dead know nothing, but he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit. In the spirit we are alive, in the flesh we are dead.
I think of the possibility of someone trying to talk to Jesus through the rock that was sealed where he was buried, before his resurrection. “Jesus, how’s it going? Can you hear me?” …”I don’t think he knows anything.”
Yet, he said he was going unto the Father. His spirit went unto the Father, didn’t it? And was he not joined there?
It seems to me that there is a part of the soul that is joined to the physical body and that part dies, but the part that is joined to the Spirit of God, lives, and stays joined to Christ.
