List of stuff we fight over. The Issues.
« on: Fri Dec 12, 2008 - 17:22:30 »
I don't have a good handle on this, but I am increasingly astonished on the ISSUES that I never knew was an issue until it was made an issue.  Some I understand but some I do not.  Hobby Horses are a figment of somebod's imagination.  Are we really in the business of making lists to make strong christians weaker, weak christians weaker, hanging in there christians throw in the towel?

1) Is christmas for christians?

2) humans use humanistic language.  (as opposed to .... what?)

3) Is a christmas tree a bone of contention.   (pun intended. Is that low wit or just bad wit?)

4) IM is wrong.  (now that I have been taught this, history supports this, I have trouble with this.  Those who never did will either think this is stupid or they will start to be bothered with what wasn't an issue before.   Sin is sin of course and we must learn what sin is.    WHICH ISSUES ARE REALLY SIN(FUL)?

It would be interested to see what list is generated.

Can't add much to HR's list, except maybe...Is Max Lucado a greater trouble maker than Lipscomb?

It is obvious Garfield is DoC. He pretends to like Opie and then disses him.

Opie, the fun-loving, happy go lucky, let's just live life enjoying it kinda dog, is clearly a coC..........no, wait a minute......Bap....no, oh never mind.

I don't think Real Presence of Communion has been mentioned yet.

Someone should put together a top 10?

Here's my opinion (although others know better):
1) OSAS
2) IM
3) seeker sensitive/modern movements - good or bad?
4) Joel Osteen and prosperity preachers
5) secular celebrations
6) MDR
7) Real Presence
8) Pope and Catholic issues
9) eschatology
10) authority in the church

Does everything in Scripture actually go back to BAAL PROSTITUTE TEMPLE SINGERS?

I never thought of this before - but now that I think about it, yes... YES!!! - It does.  It's all clear now!!!!

Now I've got to go back and rethink everything.  ::doh::

Here is one that was over looked.

Is the Spirit the word only?

Oh and don't forget   Predestination and all that goes under that subtitle.

Also I don't remember if any one mentioned the Lords supper when and how to do it..
