Brother Jeff, the only answer I've pondered since then has been that we'd have to understand or know what a person that is a 7 pt Calvinist's eschatology is. That may be the clincher of what anyone has in common - and that goes for more than just these two men. I believe that will draw the line between how those that are called Christians will get along with one another in the days ahead and actually will split the church, much.
No, I'm not a doom and gloomer. The 'JOY' of The LORD is our Strength.

| Re: Pentagon To Hold Gay Pride Event |
Well let's see, what's next...? A Man-Boy Love Association celebration at the Pentagon too, for generals and their 12 yr old lovers? A Swingers Convention? Adulterous Heterosexuals Month? Polygamist's Pride Event? Pentagon Prostitution Parade? Oh wait, that was the Secret Service....

Ok I give up, since I don't study Calvinism or Armenianism, or any other isms, (nor do I want to - God gave us His Word, which contains all we need for life & Godliness, eschatology, prophecy, etc.), I don't know what the eschatology of a 7 pt Calvinist is and how that explains this. I just know what 2 John 1:9-11 says: "he that abideth not in this doctrine....receive him not into your house, nor bid him God-speed. He who receiverh him becomes partaker in his evil deeds". So how does his theological belief in some ism allow him to cast aside the Word of God? And what does he believe that will allow him to cast aside Gods Word in this way?

Actually, I don't know what JP believes about the end times, but I do know that some believe preterism, partial preterism, dominionism, amillenialism, kingdom now - all of which are delusions of what the future holds and though there are other views of the latter times, many of these don't see things getting worse, but that they will make the days ahead better and then Christ Jesus will come.
RW is a do-gooder, supposedly in the name of this basic principle and is heavily involved with world governance.
I can't see how else these two could be connected doctrinally except for their world view that contradicts historic premillenialism - which holds that the prophesies of the end times are yet to be fulfilled and didn't already happen.
Don't have any further insight into JP's mind on why.
Don't really care what others are doing or saying anymore. Only those that He lays on my heart.
Jesus is LORD, being The Word of GOD. No one else.
Each man has to give an account for himself alone.
We only are accountable before Him to know what His Word says. We don't follow men, nor have time to worry about some of them. Not anymore.
His Peace cost Him far too much to give to us to waste on those out there. 1Thess 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." His Sheep know His Voice and won't follow another.
Maybe someone else could answer you better - if it really matters.
GOD Bless you with more and more of Himself.

I believe it does matter for the true church's sake and discernment. If you don't have any actual insight based on something said/done at this conference, it's OK,, but it does matter. I think It's a warning to test all things by the Word of God & the Spirit of Od which support/confirm one another. It's a warning for all to take heed when you stand, to stay connected daily to the vine & the Word no matter what else you do, & keep your eyes fixed on Jesus & let His Word alone be a lamp unto thy feet and a light unto thy path.

Oh silly me! It came sooner than i thought! "What's next" was revealed in the news tonight (AFTER my last post) when they announced that the Secret Service has now been exposed for having published pornography, not only soliciting prostitution.

| Re: |
Brother Jeff, I agree with you but both of these men were shown for what they believe here in the past, One for teaching that GOD is the author of our sin and the other covered in a countless number of threads, but their messages were both posted again after that.
That's when the LORD speaks to my heart and releases the burden for exactly what you posted because it's not my jurisdiction nor does the LORD lay it to my charge, once these issues have been extensively covered and then ignored, whether it be in a Church or on a Forum.
But you are right to try to protect His Lambs, but we've had to consider Titus 3:10 and the verse about your peace returning to you.
"I think It's a warning to test all things by the Word of God & the Spirit of God which support/confirm one another. It's a warning for all to take heed when you stand, to stay connected daily to the vine & the Word no matter what else you do, & keep your eyes fixed on Jesus & let His Word alone be a lamp unto thy feet and a light unto thy path."

| Re: who Speaks the truth????|
When I hear about Rick Warren, John Piper, Joel Olstein, or any other pastor being hauled to jail for preaching Romans 1:15-31 as God giving up the homosexual to a reprobate mind. I believe we will have an idea who is speaking truth
Jesus who is truth was put to death. The martyrs were slain because of the word of God. Believers are being slain because of their love for truth. Now are there any in N. America who are willing to speak the truth at whatever cost.

| Hate crimes|
I believe laws exist in Canada and America that make it illegal to speak out against gays and lesbians. This is called hate crime. Thus for any believer, even in this forum, could be prosecuted for saying homosexuality is a sin. Is anyone aware of pastors currently jailed or fined for saying such.
Also I understand even the Bible could be banned as a hate crime book. It condemns homosexuality. An I off in in my thinking?
