SORT BY Relevancy
TEXT: Acts 19:1-6
Christians today lament the level of ignorance about the things of God in the world, but the statistics that I just read to you are true among people who claim to be Christians. Yes, many Christians are, sadly, ignorant about basic Christian doctrine. Many churches have failed to teach their members, and many Christian parents have failed to teach their children. Thus, we have generations of Christians who are stunted in their spiritual growth. This lack of Biblical knowledge among Christians is part of the reason for the moral decline in our society. Dr. Albert Mohler said, "How can a generation be biblically shaped in its understanding of human sexuality when it believes Sodom and Gomorrah to be a married couple? No wonder Christians show a growing tendency to compromise on the issue of homosexuality. Many who identify themselves as Christians are similarly confused about the Gospel itself. An individual who believes that 'God helps those who help themselves' will find salvation by grace and justification by faith to be alien concepts."
Every Christian must be committed to a Biblical foundation for his life. This can only be done if we take the time to read and study the Bible and learn from Christian teachers. We do not want to be ignorant Christians. In his classic story, Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan introduces us to a character named Ignorance. He comes from the country of Conceit, and he embarks on a journey to the Celestial City.
Four things we notice about Ignorance are that: (1) Contrary to Scripture, he believes he is a good person. (2) He is depending on his good works to get him into the Celestial City. (3) He has no real interest in the gospel; he just wants it for what he can get out of it -- going to Heaven. (4) He is ignorant, and when he is informed of his ignorance, he shrugs it off, showing that he has no real desire to grow in the faith.
Prayer with You!
Let's pray like: Jesus, King David, Daniel, Prophetess Anna, Paul and Silas and “YOU”!
Luke 18:1 (KJV)
1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Let us pray until we have the answer!

The belief that God has already predetermined our lives and our rewards or punishments is a mistaken understanding of the subject of predestination. Regarding predestination, Ephesians 1:5 tells us that God “predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself.” Speaking of Christ, verse 11 says, “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” Romans 8:29-30 adds, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” In reading these scriptures, there are two ways we can understand predestination. One way is to assume that God has everyone's life already planned out and that He already knows what we are going to do. Another way to understand predestination is from the perspective that God planned the purpose for human beings in the beginning (to become His sons and daughters), although He doesn't know what each of us will do. Let's consider a few additional scriptures to see which way we should understand these passages.

Today we talk all about not-knowing stuff (being ignorant), and that it's okay, really it's OKAY to not know everything. None of us know everything. What's not okay is being ignorant about things that are important to us, and that's why we are asking questions and encouraging others to ask them!
It's always good to continue learning and continue helping people who are new to the industry. We talk about how the show, the industry and how we have all changed and progressed. Let's truck!
In this week's first segment we take a look at the double edge sword of derogatory words, their meanings and what role they play in today's society. We will also look at how common sense and knowledge of history escapes many of the folks of today's society. Join us in this week's segment - Real Talk.
In our second segment - Behind Closed Doors - She says no...why? This week we discuss the many reasons a lady says no about that special time in a relationship. We will explore some of the reasons that men and women have a communication breakdown on a physical level and the reasons why many women say no or turn their man down.
Join in and let your voice be heard.
Being here in Memphis, you see more than the average American. I truly believe that. Race, Job behavior, and just alot of people in General in this City are just ignorant. But the question I have is, do they stay Ignorant because then less responsibility has to be taken? People in important positions show alot of this behavior too in Memphis. It's a lazy persons Disease. This has to stop somewhere. But it almost seems like this type of behavior gets rewarded. Let's go in.

God showed me in his word, that if there is confusion and disunity in the church body He has no part in it, for His word say:
33 For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
37 If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant.[e]
39 Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. 40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
WORSHIPING GOD IN TRUTH AND SPIRIT MEANS *RECOGNIZING* AFRICAN AMERICANS AS THE "PROMISED SEED" OF ABRAHAM, THE "12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL" AND THE "BIOLOGICAL DESCENDANTS OF BIBLICAL ISRAELITES". WORSHIPING THE GOD OF ABRAHAM IN *TRUTH AND SPIRIT* MEANS ACCEPTING THE BLACK SKINNED JESUS CHRIST DESCRIBED IN REVELATION,
BLACK SKINNED ISRAELITES DESCRIBED THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE AND AFRICAN AMERICANS AS BIBLICAL ISRAELITES.THE TIME HAS COME TO REVEAL THE TRUE DESCENDANTS OF BIBLICAL ISRAELITES EXPRESSLY SHOWN IN THE BIBLE AND REVEAL THE CONSPIRACY PERPETRATED BY EUROPEANS TO HIDE THE TRUE IDENTITY OF THE DESCENDANTS OF BIBLICAL ISRAELITES. IT IS NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE TO INTENTIONALLY REMAIN IGNORANT OF THE** TRUTH **CONCERNING THE IDENTITY OF GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE.
THE TIME HAS COME TO ASK QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE TRUE IDENTITY OF GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE WHO'S NATIONALITY WAS STOLEN BY EUROPEAN JEWS. THOSE WHO SERVE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM MUST SERVE GOD IN TRUTH AND SPIRIT; NOT IN THE COMFORT OF MONETARY PROSPERITY AND COMPROMISE OF THE TRUTH. BLACK PREACHERS MUST NOW BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR AIDING AND ABETTING EDOM PERPETRATE THE CONSPIRACY TO HIDE THE IDENTITY OF ISRAEL SPOKEN OF IN PSALMS 83 OF THE BIBLE. DEFERENCE SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN WHERE NOT EARNED.
BLACK PREACHERS NO LONGER CAN HIDE BEHIND A BABYLONIAN RELIGIOUS THEOLOGY THAT SUGGESTS "IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO THE BIOLOGICAL DESCENDANTS OF ISRAEL ARE TODAY". GOD IS NOT DEAD NOR ARE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE! BLACK PREACHERS NO LONGER CAN --SUMMARILY DISMISS-- THIS MONUMENTAL INQUISITION! THE TRUTH IS IN THE AIR AND ANTI CHRISTS MUST NOW GIVEN AN ACCOUNTING OF THEIR DECEPTION AND LIES CONCERNING THE TRUE IDENTITY OF GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE NOW LIVING ON EARTH. THE DISCIPLES OF GOD WILL BE REDEEMED WITHOUT MONEY. THE SELL OUT IS OVER. TIME TO GIVE AN ACCOUNTING. THE TRUE IDENTITY OF BIBLICAL ISRAELITES DOES MATTER.
