And why, why, why is it labelled ‘uncensored’? Is that some sick cynical marketing ploy? Will people who want to watch this debate (why anyone would want to is a complete mystery) only do so if they get to see something or hear something ‘uncensored’? What the DEVIL does it say about the thing that ‘uncensored’ is even seen as a viable selling point?
Furthermore- why would I want to enrich either Bill Nye (who only seems to have helped Ken Ham raise money for his absurd Noah’s Ark Park) or Ken Ham?
No. And I won’t say ‘no, thank you’, because that would be a lie. There’s nothing here to say thank you for. So, just NO! NEIN!
Our dear Joel has posted this every Lent since 2011…
I know a lot of people should take his advice. But all of them are unhinged bloody lunatics who any day may become homicidal sociopaths.
NB- I do not like Joel’s beard.
Dear friends, I saw this on the Instagram and after I returned from the store having had to purchase a replacement phone I thought it important to point out the utter theological bankruptcy of such pentebabbleist nonsense.
1- You don’t have the right to ‘declare’ Ephesians 3 over anything. It isn’t your word it’s God’s Word. It doesn’t serve you, it serves Him.
2- God won’t be boxed in by some sort of magical chant you mumble using Scripture (wrongly at that). Accordingly, God is not bound or required to give you anything at all. God is the free sovereign of the universe, not a monkey on a chain of Scriptures decontextualized.
3- In the right place at the right time? What does that even mean? To what end? To get? As Peter said to Simon, ‘you and your greedy attempts to make gain of God can go to hell!’
4- Do you really think that God arranges all of humanity so that it serves you? Are you really that narcissistic?
5- Your claim on God’s favor neatly ignores that obedience is the foundation of blessing. Yet in your idiotic declaration you presume, you feckless heretic, to claim what God grants without uttering one word of your own willingness to obey.
I would like to know who composed this damnably heretical little bitlet. It is perverse and a perversion of the Gospel and those who would recite it know NOTHING of the substance of Christian faith nor Christian theology. Nothing.
Prior to, that is, his finding his proper place in the roasting pit…
A useful reminder that whenever you read Osteen, you really are reading fiction. And why does Osteen want every day to be a Friday? So Sunday (and worship) disappear.
In a January 2014 blog post entitled, “A New Year, A New Time,” popular Southern Baptist Bible teacher Beth Moore shared the following alleged God-given revelation:
In mid-November of 2012, God dropped a word so convicting on my heart through another teacher’s lesson that my face instantly burned. . . . This was the word:
“Stop sowing over and over in the exact same field.”
I wasn’t looking for it. I didn’t ask for it. I was happy where I was. Like many of you, I like things to stay the same. I loved my circle of relationships and the familiar places I got to serve. I’ve never lost a passion for those places and have often wept with thanksgiving to God for the privilege of walking through some of the same doors again and again. I have a history of long relationships and staying put and that’s how I like things. But I knew God was talking to me. It burned like a branding iron.
Every single day for nearly 14 months, that same word has reverberated in my soul and troubled my feet. . . .
Fast forward 12 months exactly to the most recent November. A year after hearing from God so clearly about sowing further than the field that I’d loved and served in for so long, I had a very disturbing dream. I can count the significant dreams I’ve had through the decades on one hand so I’m not prone to look for messages in my sleep to keep from having to actually pray and read the Bible. That God can speak through dreams is clear in our own Bibles, of course, but for many of us it is unusual. I don’t feel the release right now to describe the dream though I may someday. What I do feel is a strong compelling to share with you what I knew beyond a doubt it meant. I believe that I can either be obedient to God in the faith walk He is setting before me or He will take my voice. I do not feel that it was a rebuke. I felt that it was a warning.
(Source, emphasis added)At the time, Do Not Be Surprised emphasized the danger of Moore’s claims to receiving direct, personal revelation from God. What was not emphasized at that time was the content of the revelation.
Beth, for the sin of presumption- and theological incompetence- here’s your more than well deserved Dilly-
Put the Bible down, walk away, and never presume to speak for God again.
In his drive to turn his cult, er I mean ‘church’ into a Disneyland-esque community of manipulatively ‘baptized’ good timers-
Why learn from theology and the Bible when one can learn from Walt Disney? Why read Brunner or Barth or Luther or Calvin or Zwingli (I know, I know, Furtick wouldn’t know those names if they hit him on the head) when one can read the life story of a man who was disgusted by the notion of a deity.
Authentic Christians need to flee Furtick’s Sodom and Gomorrah.
Chris has been spotted on the M1.
A driver has been arrested after motorists on the M1 reported seeing a man driving a van “naked and erratically”. Hertfordshire police said they were called by concerned motorists who reported seeing a man driving a white Ford Transit panel van on the southbound carriageway.
Officers from the roads policing unit attempted to stop the driver but it is alleged he did not pull over. The van was pursued with the help of a police helicopter. The pursuit ended on the north orbital road (A414) near the London Colney roundabout where it connects with London road, St Albans.
The incident happened yesterday afternoon at around 3.30pm. A 55
21-year-old man from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, was arrested on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle without its owner’s consent, dangerous driving and failing to stop for police.
Shame on you Chris. Driving erratically. That endangers others!
