There are those people who have had a brief trip to the altar at church and asked Jesus to come into their hearts who maintain that now that they are saved by Jesus, that they are able to live as they please and still enjoy everlasting fellowship in the presence of our Lord. Such rhetoric perhaps would prompt one to ask the question, “Has God stopped commanding people to repent of their sins?”.
In his article at the Christian Post, Dan Delzell writes, “A genuine relationship with God always involves repentance. It involves turning away from sin and turning toward the will of God. It is a desire to live for the Lord. It is sorrow for sin and a desire to do the right thing. It is honest, and it calls a spade a spade.”
For today’s Christian, calling a spade a spade means honestly identifying sin for what it is. All types of sexual immorality are sin, no matter to whom such a concept might seem offensive. Following the doctrine of a religion that denies the Deity of Jesus is missing the mark as well. It’s relatively hard to acquire forgiveness of sin through the blood of Jesus when one does not believe that He died for our sins and has the power to wash them (sins) away with His blood.
Scripture from the Book of Matthew (3:8) says “Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance.” It means Christians are supposed to live fruitful lives free from sin, instead of wrongly assuming that salvation is a decided issue and becoming dedicated to pursuing the sinful desires of the heart.
Shayn Roby’s Take: “Honor Killings” are the most recent examples of the “peaceful religion” known as Islam. Such vicious and unconscionable acts are a flashing neon sign that Allah and Lucifer are one and the same spiritual entity.
Shayn Roby’s Take: Just yesterday, the editor of ShaynRoby.com referred to liberal union members in the United States as “useful idiots” because they support the Communist/ Islamic/ Satanic agenda of the Democrat/ Progressive/ Liberal Party in America.
Christian Syrian refugees have found temporary shelter in Jordan, but their immigration requests have been rejected by Western countries.
Some of them have spoken to the Associated Press, but want to remain anonymous for safety reasons.
One Syrian refugee said, “Everyone sold whatever they owned in Syria in order to get here, so that we could apply for visas at an embassy. We were all surprised to be rejected on the basis that there was no reason for us to go to Europe. Their reasons were all false – nothing correct in them.”
Another man said that western countries “were supposed to support us, and they were supposed to facilitate our immigration process as Christians, and I’m very sad that they haven’t.”
About 70 Syrian families, who fled the violence and civil war of their homeland, are staying in halls and extra rooms of an Assyrian church in the capital…
In a message from President Barack Obama for Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)’s 50th Convention 2013, the American Commander-in-Chief? said, “In the past half century you’ve upheld the proud legacy of American Muslims’ contributions to our national fabric.”
If blowing up federal buildings, hijacking passenger flights, and murdering Jews and Christians is a part of our American fabric, then Barack HUSSEIN Obama is one hundred justified in the praise that he heaped upon the Islamic Society of North America.
Shayn Roby’s Take: People who echo the voice of reason are routinely criticized by the left. For speaking the obvious truth: Sharia values are not compatible with American values; conservatives are labeled as ‘Islamophobes’. Of course, such labeling is a common tactic of the left. Anyone who voices common sense observations that oppose the philosophy or twisted morals of liberal favored groups (i.e., Muslim, LGBT) is immediately labeled as a ‘phobe’ of some sort: Homophobe, Islamophobe, Obamamoronaphobe, etc.
