Amen Kdr22!

As Christians, we should all know that our lives will be one of warfare. The devil doesn't want us to "WALK IN THE SPIRIT", and the devil certainly doesn't want us to have a living testimony for CHRIST. So, we should expect attacks by the devil. Paul explained this warfare very well and gave a solution:  Put on the Whole Armour of GOD.

Love In Christ,
Tom

1 Thessalonians 5:8-10 NASB
But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.

Its my first day here and i thought i would enjoy the company of brothers in the Lord until i read your posts. The way you have responded to Brother Paul's topic is totaly not in the LOVE of Christ. Is that the only solution you have? That any man and/or woman of GOD who struggles with sin should be removed from their positions? Couldnt you think of prayer for him atleast? Jesus sad we should love each other, as it is the only way the world will know that we are His. In essence, what He was saying is that we must suffer long and be kind towards each other (1 cor 13:4). Taking your respond and this scripture, do you see any similarity in them? Do you find kindness in your respond? Im obligated, as a result of your attitute, to think that you will tear out all apostle Paul's letters if you can realy understand his matter in Romans 7:15-25 and compare it to our fellow brother here's problem. What heals sin? condemnation or the blood of JESUS? Who determines who is worthy to pastor or not? You or GOD? Brother Paul, keep up the faith, and dont lose heart, GOD in His own appointed time will deliver you, just hold on and keep up the Faith, no man appointed you, GOD did, and He will not let any man disappoint and discourage you. Im praying for you.

Hmmm another one that wants to ignore God's word. If a person is dealing with the sin of homosexuality and actively still participating in it, should they stay behind the pulpit? If a person is actively participating in any type of extra-marital affairs, should they stay behind the pulpit? If a person is having difficulty in overcoming any specific sin then they are not able to properly council others in this area. No, there is no pastor that is perfect but they are not to be buried under the burden of a sin that they have not properly dealt with.

1Ti 3:2  A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
1Ti 3:3  Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1Ti 3:4  One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
1Ti 3:5  (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

It is such an attitude as yours that has permitted evil to creep into the churches. As for prayers, they were offered to him so your judgment is all askew. There was much good Christian advice straight from the Bible that was given to this person that should have been heeded. This advice may seem harsh but it was given in love and in accordance to God's word. It would have been totally without love if it had not been given in truth.

The blood of Jesus does heal sin but His condemnation is still strong for those that ignore His word and continue in deceitful, sinful practices.

Amen Pastor Roger

A Pastor is suppose to be able to lead by example.

UM? I would first say AMEN to Pastor Roger's reply to you.

You must not have read the thread and/or you don't have a beginning Biblical knowledge of the issues. In this case, they are as blunt and clear as the nose on your face and impossible to argue from a Biblical perspective.

I'll say WELCOME to you anyway. If you don't like the TRUTH of GOD'S WORD, I doubt that you will like it here. We're not interested in being politically correct here on issues where the BIBLE tells it straight and in an unmistakable manner. You really should pay attention to what GOD SAYS FIRST!

Love In Christ,
Tom

2 Peter 3:3-13 NASB  Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation." For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

to answer your question that has disappeared.

When dealing with who can be a Pastor, it isn't the sin itself but how often it is committed.

I must really be missing something here.  Sin is sin.  Scripture tells us to " go and sin no more".  What is so hard to understand about that. Pastor Roger said it all, straight from the word of God. Amen to that. It seems there are some who like to "transfer" God's word into whatever and however they want it to work. Just doesn't work that way. In a way it's like everyone is yelling "it's my right - I have the right to ?? " Yes our country has a bill of rights and you can yell all you want.  Maybe it should be called a " bill of responsibility".  Everyone wants the right but no one wants the responsibility. The same with the word of God, you can read it all you want and yell but you have the responsibility to God our Father to follow his commandments.  What is against God is "against God".
