There is some debate on when evangelicalism started, but most agree that its roots are in the 18th century. During this time, Christians saw the emergence of scholars and preachers that would become leaders of the evangelical movement— many whose work is still preached on today. Those leaders included Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley and later on, Charles Spurgeon and Dwight L. Moody.

When we are told not to love the world, but it most often refers to the humanistic system that is at odds with God the Bible is referring to the world’s corrupt value system. Satan is the god of this world, and he has his own value system contrary to God’s
You don’t know what your taking about ! Your political rhetoric is classic left Boohaha! Right on cue! Predictable, tired, nothing new! The only thing I should correct is when I refer to the left I really should say “the world” ….. the left’s platform is self proclaimed “Godless platform” and when God refers to the world, God refers to it as wicked “separate” Christian’s are aliens in this world, in the world but not of it! ___________________________ What Jesus said about the world? He said: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
God is pro science-God created science! And I trust in a multitude of councilor’s that test to prove beyond mere theory! What benefits mankind and does no harm! To children and young people…. Throw as many darts,insults,derogatory summations as you can dish out RN-skwh310 in the Bible Jesus said to nicodemus you must be born again! The concept of being “born again” has been central to the Christian faith since its inception. But skeptics, atheists, and believers will respond to this idea differently. It’s mentioned in the Bible 3 times ! I think it’s important…..go ahead and mock, be little, berate!

Mr OT - The RIGHT could give a rip about ‘science and biology’ during the pandemic. Masking, vaccines, and social distancing are all FIRMLY rooted in fact and ‘reality’. A 12 BILLION year old universe is also deeply rooted in science, as is evolution. Why would you trust ‘science and biology’ now, but not with these other things?? Why the change of tune??

In some instances you can’t tell these days! By definition Masquerading is well, masquerading! By definition pretending will always amount to pretending. Science stops the pretenders. The “Right”has a fixation with living in reality, and you mock them for it! and well the left it seems has a fixation with living in the TWILIGHT ZONE ! Biology will not lie for “left” Thank God for absolute Truths that can’t be changed …. That’s reality! Sorry but you can’t bend a lie into a truth! Insanely the left is doing just that!

Such an insane fixation of the Right. Asking the question ‘What is a woman?’ Tell me, even IF Dr. Jackson was asked this question, and said ‘yes’, how would they truly know?? Would the ‘yes’ be enough proof?? Or, to meet the Rights definition of a ‘woman’ will something like chromosome tests….or a chromosome card be the next requirement of the Right?? Yes! I am a card carrying ‘woman’!! Tell me, would this be a sufficient answer for the Right??

A world in rebellion against God will always have a skewed perspective and embrace a topsy-turvy morality. There are many people like Swkh310 today who still call evil “good” and good “evil,” as they promote behaviors that the Bible specifically calls sinful. The celebration of homosexuality and the defense of abortion on demand are usually accompanied by a mockery of those who value life and promote traditional marriage. Evil is being called “good,” and good is slandered as “evil.” Apart from God, our value system will always become jumbled. They will begin to confuse sweetness and bitterness, light and darkness, and good and evil. They will label biblical morality as “intolerant” and “oppressive.” They will take offense at the truth that Jesus is the only way to salvation (John 14:6). “Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil” (John 3:20). Calling good “evil” and evil “good” is a sure sign of spiritual wickedness at work: “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4). Paul warns that the intensity of the spiritual battle will increase: “There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people” (2 Timothy 3:1–5). I Pray that Swkh310 and others of her ilk will allow the Holy Spirit to remove the scales from their eyes and embrace the Biblical Jesus by having a supernatural change of heart.

I am so grateful that we will have a normal, sane, YOUNG associate justice on the US Supreme Court starting this October. Justice Jackson should have decades on the Court ahead of her. It won't change the current balance, but it will ensure at least one reasonable voice to counterbalance the six "Christian" Nationalists.
