Hello everyone and always thank you ALL for your encouragement, discussions, prayers, and most importantly especially reading my opinions as well as my warnings these last few years at Lions roar. I know I have been maybe a little to political as well and I know my harshness in Truth seems maybe way out but all in all truth always must be told as truth exists in reality. Truth must cut to the joints and marrow and we must face what is always uncomfortable because as you know the closer you get to Christ JESUS and the Supremacy of GOD the harder our walk truly gets.
At Lions Roar I set out to be an alarm to actually alarm the world and Roar to the Christian to wake up out of their slumber because the time is always at hand meaning that Today is the day of salvation and it is time to stop living for yourself and start living in and for Christ. Our life should be surrounded by HIM alone because in HIM alone is OUR redemption, salvation, and how are we to neglect such a satisfying GOD who will and does satisfy us in everything. HE is the center of our life and we will fully enjoy HIM forever. This is mankinds whole duty and chief end, to be satisfied in GOD and to FULLY enjoy HIM forever.
But as the Lions roar is changing it s format a little, I want to mostly let my new BLOG website http://americanmoralliberty.blogspot.com/ deal with all the political issues and for Lions roar to deal with the apostasy, apologetic's, and soundness and what is happening in the church to be the focus because it is very important to sharpen IRON with each other to iron our the differences and confusions. We must HAVE UNITY in the bODY of Christ in all things. There is no room for AGREEING TO DISAGREE.
And if that statement is BIBLICAL to "agree to disagree" Then please show the Scripture that backs that terminology up, anyone????
We must be one in mind, body, and Spirit allowing the teachings of CHRIST JESUS who is the WORD alone be our focus in unity. Even though we are unique in creation as GOD made us we should never be divided on any Biblical issue.
1 Corinthians 12:25
So that there should be no division or discord or lack of adaptation [of the parts of the body to each other], but the members all alike should have a mutual interest in and care for one another.
This is my goal here to end denomination and individual church charter in our BODY.
WE HAVE BEEN DIVIDED FOR TWO LONG and that is how OUR enemy infiltrates. It is depressing to witness denominations NEVER coming together as ONE BODY in Christ that Scriptural differences has divided and added confusion to our BODY to keep US divided. DID JESUS PROCLAIM TO BE IN DENOMINATION DIVISIONS? (Read Rev 1-3) The Early Church fathers never left us with this idea. The Reformers new this was a plague in the body so they always set up round table talks in their beginnings and ministry to IRON out the differences of doctrine to bring US all back to the APOSTLES CREED which was our beginning and statement of faith. DIVE into the deep of Church history from the beginning to see what the Martyr's stood and lost their lives for with JOY.
The Apostles' Creed
(as usually recited today)
The basic creed of Reformed churches, as most familiarly known, is called the Apostles' Creed. It has received this title because of its great antiquity; it dates from very early times in the Church, a half century or so from the last writings of the New Testament.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell. [See Calvin, Luther, the Puritans, John Piper, Dan Weidenhof etc.]
The third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the holy (universal) catholic church; (not RCC)
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
So here is the CREED of our BODY in CHRIST.
Anything teaching that steps outside of Sola Gratis, Sola Fide, Sola Christos, Sola Scriptura and Sola Deos Gloria is for the most part another gospel according to the Reformers and the Early church and all who are serious about TRUTH. ( See Against Heresies by Irenaus, and Augustine on Christian Doctrine for further study).
Yes the have the Nicene creed and the Chalcedon additions but all in all the Apostles Creed is the universal one we recognize together without argument.(see on my menus on the side of the blog on the Larger Catechism)
So reader if you want the warnings of the political nature compared to the Gospel go to my American Moral Liberties site for those warnings and disputes which is where that belongs for political discussions challenged by Scripture. For LIONS ROAR the edification and table talk to come together in all sound doctrine letting Scripture be Scripture alone.
Thank you all for your support prayers and encouragements.
