mid-week apologetics booster (1-14-2021)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1900) from Nuggets:

Let me put the question this way; does the gospel allow men to be unholy? Can you be really saved and unholy and continue to remain in, abide in, stay in, live in the same relationship to sin you had before? That’s the question. Let’s look at the answer in verse 2. M genoito. You don’t see that in your Bible. It says God forbid. But m genoito does not translate God forbid. It is an idiom, the strongest reaction possible. It is outraged indignation. To put it in the words of my grandmother, Perish the thought! – John MacArthur (sermon on Romans 6:1 and following)

  1. Blog Post – The Lord Told Me. The church has fallen into a dangerous pattern when it comes to divine direction. Too many believers today are trying to hear directly from Godwhether through an audible voice or a stirring of their souls. Worse still are the people who legitimize everything from heresy to fundraising schemes to simple personal decisions by asserting the leading of the Lord.: https://www.gty.org/library/blog/B160122/the-lord-told-me

  14. We Need to Be Better Losers | Christianity Today – I agree with the spirit of the article but not the particulars. I do believe that we need to “model losing well, based in our commitment to Christs victory through the cross”, but I don’t agree with the statement in the article that “these allegations are baseless nonsense. They are grounded in selectively presented half-truths, ambiguous and out-of-context videos, and outright falsehoods. They fall apart under the slightest scrutiny.” I think the Navarro report (part 1) lays out a good summary of the election fraud. There is also a Navarro report part 2 which talks about all the rule changes that occurred during 2020 leading up to the election. The author does not address that report or that important body of data. Never the less, I think it is wise to take the counsel from this article that our trust is not in princes (Ps. 146:3), so I wanted to include it: https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2021/january-web-only/christian-victory-election-loss.html

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died –more than that, who was raised to life –is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Romans 8:33-34

Blessings to you all
