One thing that I can say that J. D. Greear is correct on. The sad part is that he hasn't been practicing what he preaches, which was proven during this last SBC Convention in Nashville.

God's Humor.  Famous Scripture Quotes from Alpha to Omega,  Beginning to End (of time et al)

"Psalm 2:1-6

King James Version

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion."

Read full chapter

 

"Psalm 37:12-13

King James Version

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming."

Read full chapter

"Psalm 59:7-8

King James Version

7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision."

 

"Pharmacy deceives the whole world" (governments, medical schools and doctors, teachers, everyone)

God Laughs at those plans!  (of the pharmakeia, the profit seekrs,  the deceivers) >>

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
― Issac Asimov

“When a person uses his or her position of power from a church, corporation, or government to throw disgust upon a person for holding a different perspective, the person with the position of power is using lust as a mindset to gain control over the masses. Superior-Disgust-Lust is a complex and it's a method by which individuals steal from other human beings.”
― Deborah Bravandt

The dictator, whether he be a political or a religious one, must be able to distribute little favors to the faithful, and these he always manages to have at hand. These favors are like the fish tossed to the performing seal, or like the salt lick of early American days placed near the shooting blind to entice the wary deer within range. ~ A. W. Tozer

The sinfulness of intellectualism was once known as idolatry or witchcraft.   It runs on what is falsely called knowledge.

"Concerning this system there are two things to be emphasized.

First, since the day when Adam opened the door for evil to enter God's creation, the world order has shown itself to be hostile to God. 

"The whole world," John says, "lieth in the evil one" (5:19)."  (it is wholly deceived by pharmacy)

In a city that housed a library that was famous for its 700,000 scrolls, we can see that intellectualism was more important to the apostate Jews of this city than true Biblical spirituality. (2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.)

Spirituality in Christ is indeed, in truth, according to the Bible,  rare in the world.

Intellectualism is quite common and welcome and used by the enemy,  as people are puffed up and deceived in their own delusions as God Causes them to be delivered to believe their own delusions because they rejected Him and would not turn to His Way.

“Self-actualization is what educated existence is all about. For members of the educated class, life is one long graduate school. When they die, God meets them at the gates of heaven, totes up how many fields of self-expression they have mastered, and then hands them a divine diploma and lets them in.”
 David Brooks, Bobos in Paradise

True also,  politics does not look like God the Father.   Politics serves greed, corruption, and is death dealing.

The educated suffer believing lies, The wisdom and knowledge of this world, this world of politics and medicine and science that rejects Him,  is repugnant to God the Father.

The more educated someone gets,  the less possible they will ever see the Kingdom of God/ Heaven.

as Jesus Prayed: 

"Matthew 11:25-30

King James Version

25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because

thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, ("educated ones") 

and hast revealed them unto babes.

26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight."

 

Brother Lawrence never finding salvation ...

"As a result, medieval Catholic writers such as Brother Lawrence are looked to  ...

Lawrence, however great his personal sacrifice,

missed the basics of the Gospel, not realizing that it was Christ's full and complete sacrifice that paid for our sins.

As a Roman Catholic, to his death he retained the false idea ..."

("Love Not The World") "... nor the things of the world"   

"Whoever Loves The World (politic,medical,financial,social, etc) Cannot Be A Friend of God"

Below is from Chinese Saint died in prison,  isolation in prison 20+ years for his faith in Jesus.

http://lovenot.org/book/chapter1.html

"But what of education? Surely, we protest, that must be harmless. ...

"But education, no less than commerce or technology,

is one of the things of the world.

It has its roots in the tree of knowledge.

"How earnestly, as Christians, we seek to protect our children from the world's more obvious snares. And yet it is quite true that we have to provide education for them.

"How are we going to solve the problem of letting them touch what is essentially a thing of the world, and at the same time guarding them from the great world system and its perils?"

“Whenever the church gets in bed with politics, the church gets pregnant, and the offspring does not look like God the Father.”

J. D. Greear

Gandhi was bad to get in bed with-  the results were antichrist (not like God the Father) . 

Why with false direction and fleshly purpose quote (again)  a false (worldly) prophet(s), a false teacher(s), on a "Christian" forum ?   The source is corrupt, worldly, and the resulting direction if followed is fatal to true faith in Jesus.

If it weren't for Christians, I'd be a Christian. 

Mahatma Gandhi.

He said this because of the following experience. One Sunday he decided to go to a Christian church. He as a great admirer of Christ. When he approached the door of the church an usher met him, telling him he was unwelcome and could not worship with them. The usher said the church was for high caste Indians and white people only, thus, Gandhi, being neither of a high caste nor white could not enter the church. 

Gandhi also said, "I considered becoming a Christian ... until I met one."

Is that the same reason you quote ungodly sources and , from your own posts, agree with them, and you don't quote Christians,  and don't (from your own posts) quote or believe the Bible then ?   Because of the hypocrisy you see every day in so-called 'Christians' ?

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
