Should Mom-and-Pops That Forgo Gay Weddings
They're less likely to support gay marriage than the average Californian.

The owners might be members of Rick Warren's church in Orange County.

Resolved Question: Does the Rick Warren
God sent a burning bush to Rick Warren. It was the sap from a poisonous bush that burned Warren's eyes with "excruciating" pain.
Do you think that proves God is still around?
Or do you think it proves God wants to punish religious leaders?
Do you have any independent thoughts on the matter?

Resolved Question: What is wrong with this
You know Rick Warren, the "Purpose Driven Life" guy.
I receive a daily devotional, and usually they are ok, nothing great, but today's had something that stood out...and not in a good way
here is the excerpt...
God uses his Word, people, and circumstances to mold us. All three are indispensable for character development. God's Word provides the truth we need to grow, God's people provide the support we need to grow, and circumstances provide the environment to practice Christ-likeness.
If you study and apply God's Word, connect regularly with other believers, and learn to trust God in difficult circumstances, I guarantee you will become more like Jesus.
Many people assume all that is needed for spiritual growth is Bible study and prayer. But some issues in life will never be changed by Bible study or prayer alone. God uses people. He usually prefers to work through people rather than perform miracles, so that we will depend on each other for fellowship. He wants us to grow together.
In many religions, the people considered to be the most spiritually mature and holy are those who isolate themselves from others in mountaintop monasteries, uninfected by contact with other people.
But this is a gross misunderstanding. Spiritual maturity is not a solitary, individual pursuit!
You cannot grow to Christ likeness in isolation. You must be around other people and interact with them. You need to be a part of a church and community.
What do you think? Arch: The part about the reading the bible and praying not being 'enough".
This does not sound like truth to me...sure it may be easier with a close group of spiritual friends to pray for you and with you, but those are added blessings in each believer's life.
I don't know it just reminds me of the JH saying that "just studying the bible and praying is not enough" you must also read our books and do what they say etc...

good thing he didn't sell out. http://changingworldviews.blogspot.com/2009/01/rick-warrens-inauguration-prayer.html "AdoreHim" you are being very ignorant right now... and if I were you I will edit my post asap!
first of all the real name (jewish) for Jesus is Yeshua... and Isa is not Arabic. I speak Hausa (African language) and Jesus in Hausa is Isa.
People like you are very ethnocentric and need to educate yourselves. "MIkey" I recalled asking Christians for their opinions.... please get your vision re examined
