  1. Hi there YC/C4...this is Linda from CARM

  2. I think, sadly, that John is prOBably right about that. I see so little spiritual/scriptural discernment in most pastors in our day that its hard for one to mentally conclude that many of them have ever truly experienced the new birth. So it is that much more important for us who know Jesus to stand for Him truly and faithfully so that we might have as much influence on the lives of those we touch as we possibly can. May the Holy Spirit fill each of us in that task.
  3. I prefer to call it a faithful and loyal position. That necessitates fidelity to scripture as God's Word. Best wishes everyone
  4. Liquor, by definition, is by law, an intoxicating beverage and it is illegal to drink and drive because of that fact. But how many people know that the word 'intoxication' is defined as being poisoned? From the American Heritage Dictionary - "n·tox·i·cate (¹n-t¼k“s¹-k³t”) v. in·tox·i·cat·ed, in·tox·i·cat·ing, in·tox·i·cates. --tr. 1. To stupefy or excite, as by the action of a chemical substance such as alcohol. 2. To stimulate or excite: “a man whom life intoxicates, who has no need of wine” (Anaïs Nin). 3. To poison. --intr. To cause stupefaction, stimulation, or excitement by or as if by
  5. There are very good reasons why faithful Christians can never comply with, compromise with, or identify with Romanism: The 'falling away' from Christ that Paul described in II Thess. 2:3 had its origin in the days of the apostles themselves but it continued until our time. That apostasy of professing Christianity will continue its downward trend in unfaithfulness until its final rotten condition during the tribulation period. When she reaches the peak of her unfaithfulness and infidelity to Christ He will come and take His bride, the faithful church, to heaven with Him and leave behind the
  6. Yes, I agree. I've seen that to be true for some who are in it.
  7. I've known that there was something wrong with the 12 step AA program for nearly 30 yrs. I helped an alcoholic man (biblical drunk) once who came to me for help to finish his break with liquor. But he was a member of AA big time and wasn't ready to accept any criticism of it. Nonetheless I gave him some audio tapes exposing AA and its founder that revealed the unbiblical nature of AA. He became furious with me and stomped out. About a year later he came to me and apologized for his behavior and I received him as a brother. But he wouldn't make the break with AA. A very short time after he ap
  8. Did you read my post above concerning Romanism identified as the Great Whore? The visual illustrations provide excellent evidence of that truth. Why do I need say more? Whether that does it for you or not I rest my case. Best wishes. I will not comment nor defend my tactics here any further.
  9. If they have not been informed, quite so. How many discerning Christians who walk with the Lord knew that Spocks hand signal was a sign of black magick? How many of them knew that there was black magick in Lord of the Rings? How many of them knew that there were magic pentacles flashed before their faces in Lawnmower man? Furthermore, how many of those same people could give a cogent, convincing argument to an unsaved or worldly Christian that those things are wrong or evil? I'm telling you from experience, not many. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast reject
  10. To further demonstrate the value of giving visual illustrations to expose evil or to reveal eternal truth as found in scripture, let me bring you to Revelation 17: 1 ¶ And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a wo
  11. Brother Matt, The board looks so much better since you made the change. You have a very fine board here. If possible I will do what I can to increase your readership. God bless you in the Lord. Yankee Candle
  12. But brother, look at what she said, "So rather than needing to study these things out in detail...we should be aware, and then draw nigh to God...because if we are right next to God, we will know at a glance those things that are not honoring to Him and those things that are of the devil" But the fact is that most Christians I've known including our IFB brethren DID NOT KNOW at a glance that Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, or Phantom of the Opera, etc. were ungodly and had satanic content in them. After 27 yrs of counseling and encountering a great many non-discerning Christians I know this to
  13. Well, I will try to be gentle in my reply. It might be better for you not to read my posts on this subject. It takes mental consent for a person to be demonized. A person can potentially be demonized by words alone even without pictures....IF they are predisposed to enjoy/like/receive the evil they see or read about. But that should not stop believers from exposing the works of the devil by way of visual illustration where it is appropriate to do so. I do this in our congregation on a wide screen (32 x 64 in) in our Bible studies frequently and our members really appreciate this approach to
  14. That our society is being mentally prepared for the coming of antichrist is very easy to illustrate and document. Several volumes of books could be written on the subject and there would still be much more. One of the most influential and powerful examples of Satan's influence was in Ridley Scotts Blade Runner (1982) a box office flop but within a decade was commonly called a 'cult classic' and regarded these days as the prototype of futuristic, high-tech films. Paul Sammon wrote of the making of Blade Runner and revealed some rather 'eye-popping' things about it. For instance, the ope
