One of them that I mentioned, graduated from Bible college, southern.

Just because one graduates from a Bible college doesn't mean they'll hold conservative views. I know many that went to college with me back in the early 1980s that don't hold conservative views today, whether from a Southern related Bible college or not. That has little to do with whether they'll hold to conservative views or not.

The Christians College’s are not doing their jobs.

TGL, you seem very good at pointing out the negative aspects of Christian individuals, groups and associations, and even seem rather proud of that as implied in another thread "Thank you Jim, I know that my posts many are not things we would like to talk about, and some are very negative, but somebody have to speak out and share the negative".

Identifying the negative is definitely necessary for correction, but aside from just pointing your finger at the problems what are you proactively doing to fix the problems. You say Christian Colleges are not doing their job, and I doubt you'll find any here that will not acknowledge the liberal shift in many of the Christian Universities, but what are you doing about this to make it better? In fact, what are you proactively doing to fix any of the multitudinous negative issues you bring to this forum? Knowing what the failures are is meaningless if you are not making an effort to fix those failures.

True, I myself cannot do much to fix all these things that I mention, but we do have readers that are in high places. Hopefully they’ll have convictions and take actions. My posts are normally eye-opener’s, and you are correct again, there is very little I can do, for I am just one man. Like throwing a starfish back into the ocean, so it can survive. Maybe just one person that reads, will have a chance. Sometimes, I think about the first apostles,when they had the Task to go out and preach to all nations, them being so few. I’m not a apostle.

You can't blame the colleges. It's not their fault even if you do blame them. They can't force people to accept certain positions. TBH, TGL, you have some strange ideology. Each individual is responsible for their own lives and trying to have standards that are Biblical.

True, I don’t need to go to college to know what is moral or immoral. If I support someone that is supporting abortions, gay marriages, the use of drugs like marijuana. I’m in need of spiritual growth.

If a person knowingly supports someone who is in favor of ensuring the legal right to murder unborn children, if a person knowingly supports someone who wants to ensure the legal right to sodomy and the legal right for sodomites to get “married” and raise children, they are supporting those things themselves.  They are actively ensuring the promotion of those things and are in need of far more than “spiritual growth .”

"The first apostles"? Were there more apostles than those identified in the Bible? I believe the days of the apostles are over (for over 1900 years); therefore, no one is an apostle today.

Was Matthew 28:19-20, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen, written only to the apostles? Or perhaps only to the apostles and those "readers that are in high places. Hopefully they’ll have convictions and take actions"?

Do you have no convictions? It seems apparent that you at least have convictions enough to point out what is wrong with other Christians. Don't you have convictions enough to help them see, and hopefully correct, their errant behavior?  Remember that when your one finger is pointing out error in others, the other three fingers are pointing back at you. 

You may not have a large sphere of influence, but God's sphere is boundless. Edward Kimball ("just one man") shook the world for Christ when he went to buy a pair of shoes (see D.L. Moody).

Thank you for replying, what I was trying to say, it must have been very hard for the first believers. To start sharing the gospel to the World. But not impossible.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      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.
