Why I Agreed to Serve on Donald Trump’s Evangelical Council


image

„GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump announced on Tuesday the creation of an executive council of evangelical leaders to advise him on topics of concern to the faith community and all those who understand the foundation essential for freedom. After much prayer, I accepted an invitation to be part of that group. Understandably some people I love and respect have questioned why I made this decision. Please permit me to address their concerns.

First, I want to underscore that I am not endorsing Mr. Trump or any political candidate. I have made it very clear for my entire 55-year ministry: I do not endorse candidates. I endorse and share with everyone the principles of faith and freedom. Any candidate, including many who ran this year, heard me begin my conversation with them with the words, “I do not endorse candidates or political parties. I share biblical truth and principles essential to the freedom our founders and the Constitution provided to the American people.” They knew my counsel always came without an endorsement. I will gladly counsel Hillary Clinton or any other national candidate willing to hear me…” Read more>>

12 Things a Pastor Should Never Ask a Church Member


„I’m thinking of one-on-one conversations in which a pastor might ask this of the church member. … Not a good idea. Do not try this. …

1. How did you vote on that issue?

2. Are you a Democrat or Republican?

3. Will you support my political candidate?

4. Why did you not support me in that project I was pushing?

5. Have you ever committed adultery (or any number of other things)?

6. Would you give me money? Would you lend me money?

7. How much money do you make? How much do you give?…”

Patru săgeți indreptate spre lucrătorii Domnului ~ Dorel Mureșan


agnus dei - english + romanian blog

preacher man pastor stressed discouraged

Patru sageti sunt indreptate spre lucratorii Domnului din partea celu rau:

  • 1.Lacomua de bani
  • 2.Mindria , Faima
  • 3.Curvia Si cind prin disciplina spirituala si apropiere de Domnul biruiesc cele trei si nu sunt ingenuncheati atunci prin mecanisme inimaginabile si pirghii omenesti va aduce cea de a 4 ( Bomba Atomica)
  • 4 Asasinarea de Caracter ( care va schimba imediat felul in care te vor vedea altii……si va diminua eficienta slujirii) Singura forta care invinge cea de a 4 sageata este Mina Domnului intinsa prin Dreptatea lui Dumnezeu. Deoarece Domnul este cel care apara si razbuna. Laudat sa fie Numele Domnului! Aleluia! Domnul Se arata, face dreptate si prinde pe cel rau in lucrul mainilor lui. (Ps.9:16) Domnul face dreptate si judecata tuturor celor asupriti. (Ps.103:6) El face dreptate celor asupriti; da paine celor flamanzi: Domnul izbaveste pe prinsii de razboi; (Ps.146:7) Laudat sa fie Numele Domnului! Aleluia!

5 Church Types That Must Change Or Die


Change or die.

Imagine hearing those words from your physician. I hope you would be motivated to change. Eat well. Exercise. Stop smoking.

You get the picture.

Okay, I have some tough news for you who are members or leaders of about 100,000 churches in America.

Change or die.

You read that correctly. In fact, if your churches don’t make substantive changes in the next few years, your church will die.

So what churches are at risk? Instead of naming the specific churches, I have listed them in five categories. The categories are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

1. Shallow roots.

What Did Early Pentecostals Teach about the Theology of Work?


Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center

TWJune11_Kerr_1400 D.W.Kerr (back row, center) with a group of Assemblies of God executive presbyters, 1919.


This Week in AG History — June 11, 1921

By Darrin Rodgers
Originally published on PE-News, 9 June 2016

What did early Pentecostals teach about the theology of work? Some observers have claimed that early Pentecostals were so focused on the spiritual life that they neglected careful reflection about other aspects of daily life. However, early issues of the Pentecostal Evangel tell a different story. In a 1921 article, D. W. Kerr, an executive presbyter of the Assemblies of God, wrote an insightful article titled, „A Pentecostal Businessman.”

Kerr explained at length why Pentecostals should be well-equipped to serve in all areas of life, including in business. Kerr wrote that „the Lord will pour His Spirit in such fullness” in order to equip believers „for life and for service in all the varied spheres and the diversified forms…

Pericole care il pandesc pe predicator -2-


A.W.Tozer (1897-1963)

6.O alta cursa in care predicatorul e in primejdie de a cadea este aceea ca el sa faca ceea ce nu implica efort, sa ia lucrurile usor. Stiu cat de delicat este acest subiect, si desi s-ar putea ca ceea ce scriu sa nu-mi aduca prieteni, sper sa ii poata influenta pe oameni in directia cea buna. Este usor pentru un pastor sa se transforme intr-un trandav privilegiat, un parazit social cu palma deschisa si privirea plina de asteptari. El nu are nici un sef prin apropiere; nu i se cere deseori sa respecte un program regulat, asa incat isi poate fauri un mod confortabil de viata, care sa ii permita sa trandaveasca, sa piarda vremea, sa se joace, sa dormiteze si sa umble incoace si incolo dupa cum ii place. Si multi fac tocmai asta.

Pentru a evita acest pericol,slujitorul ar trebui sa-si autoimpuna o viata de munca…

Pericole care il pândesc pe predicator -1-


A.W.Tozer (1897-1963)

Unele ocupatii prezinta riscuri inerente, precum cea de miner, de scafandru la mare adancime si de constructor de clopotnite. Oricine stie ca oamenii care practica aceste meserii se afla aproape tot timpul in pericol, cel putin intr-o oarecare masura. In comparatie cu acestea, lucrarea unui predicator ar parea ca nu implica absolut nici un pericol. In ce priveste pericolul fizic, ea se afla tocmai spre capatul listei si predicatorul este considerat unul dintre cei mai buni clienti ai oricarei societati de asigurari.

Si totusi slujirea cu Cuvantul este una dintre cele mai periculoase profesiuni. Ura diavolului fata de slujitorul umplut cu Duhul este inferioara doar aceleia pe care o are fata de Cristos Insusi. Nu este greu a descoperi sursa urii lui. Un slujitor consacrat al lui Cristos constituie o neplacere constanta pentru diavol, o amenintare la adresa imparatiei si stapanirii lui, o replica la cele mai bune argumente ale…

IN NORWAY, BARNEVERNET TAKETH CHILDREN AWAY AND GOD GIVETH THEM BACK


agnus dei - english + romanian blog

Foto Hadassa Coquin Foto Hadassa Coquin

On Friday, June 3, 2016 Viking raiders sheepishly released the Bodnariu children back to their parents after feeling the wrath of the Christian God. Surprisingly, they did so in a civilized manner, even though they failed to say „we’re sorry!” What made them do it?
a
Only a week ago I posted a commentary with the opposite title, In Norway, God giveth children and Barnevernet taketh them away!” [https://www.facebook.com/notes/pete…] Since then, in the span of less than a week, things changed dramatically: Barnevernet agreed to return the children. The two (2) older boys are to return to their parents permanently this week, and the two (2) older girls by the middle of the month after the end of the school year.
This is a gigantic miracle, to say the least…
