Recently on Rapture Forums a woman wrote in and asked: Do I need to keep repenting for those sins? "How many times do I need to repent?Â In his answer: Pastor Adrian saysÂ "No, not unless you commit fresh sins. But then it is a matter of confessing them, not repenting.Â Repentance is what brought you to God. "

Ottawa, Ontario Â The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that Biblical speech opposing homosexual behavior, including in written form, is essentially a hate crime.
On Wednesday, 'the court upheld the conviction'Â of activist William Whatcott, who found himself in hot water after distributing flyers regarding the Bible's prohibitions against homosexuality throughout the Saskatoon and Regina neighborhoods in 2001 and 2002.

The BBC will broadcast an Easter programme saying the way Britain treats gay people is like the crucifixion of Jesus.
Critics say the BBC has sunk "to a new low" by using the crucifixion to push a gay rights message.
The programme will be broadcast on Radio 4 as part of a series of lectures in the run up to Easter.

Moriel and Jacob Prasch fully endorse the recent conference remarks by Paul Smith warning about the seriously dangerous nature of the actions and false doctrines of Rick Warren.
Any honest review of the irrefutable facts supports Paul Smith's caveats.
As usual I hesitate to ask you more questions but here goes! Ã‚Â it says in Acts 24 v 17 that Paul after several years brought alms to the nation and presented offerings in the temple, it would seem that this happened after his conversion, why would he present offerings when the Lord Jesus had been the final sacrifice as the Passover lamb, Ã‚Â I understand the offerings still went on until the temple was destroyed in 70 AD but didn't think believers would do that.

I am really hoping to make this the last of this type of article for awhile. Some people think I "love" putting out this stuff. But I honestly wish it would all go away, so we could get on with the 'real' work of building the kingdom.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in theÃ‚Â Lord, and whose hope theÃ‚Â LordÃ‚Â is.Ã‚Â For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?Ã‚Â Ã‚Â I theÃ‚Â LordÃ‚Â search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.(Jeremiah 17:7-10)
Why is it that an entire chapter of the Bible is dedicated to the story of Cain, the first recorded will worshipper and murderer? From the very beginning God wanted us to be aware of the consequences of the fall of man. We who were made "in the Image of God" are now fallen, our natures are corrupted, we now "know good and evil" but from the vantage point of evil.
I had a quick question in Matthew 27:9 it says the prophecy of that the prophecy about the 30 pieces of silver and the purchase of the potter's field is found Jeremiah. In the old testament is found in the prophet Zechariah.
How do we reconcile that from a Jewish perspective?
The only thing I can think of is that Jeremiah is the first book in the section of the prophets. Not sure if there is another explanation.
I heard Jacob speak as a guest on TruNews radio program and was quite impressed with his viewpoints.Ã‚Â Would Jacob please answer 2 questions I have for him:
When does he believe the rapture of the Church will take place in relation to the 7 year Tribulation?
What does he think about the modern day Apostolic Movement.Ã‚Â Does he believe the office of Apostle is relevant for today?

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. "” Luke 6:45
There seems to be a growing trend in the Church for the clergy to feed the sensual appetite through their sermons. What we are dealing with are pastors who have dirty minds and potty mouths. The word that best describes them is profane.
The following definition of profane is from the Merriam Webster dictionary:
1: to treat (something sacred) with abuse, irreverence, or contempt: desecrate
2: to debase by a wrong, unworthy, or vulgar use
So profanity is language that shows disrespect for something sacred, such as the name of God. Not taking the Lord's Name in vain is one of the Ten Commandments:
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vainÃ‚Â (Exodus 20:7).
