Dr. Ruckman: what is the difference between Dispensational and Covenant Theology?
You have fifteen seconds.
In a strange fit of unintentional honesty, Bob Gray sums up the issues with fundamentalism in four paragraphs:
[Noah's sons] knew their father was not perfect. They knew their father was a sinner, drunk, and naked in that tent, but they did not want to see it even though they knew it was true. Anyone who is over you is there because God placed them there in your life, and if you are not careful you will miss the fact that God put them there and you will end up excusing your rebellion because of their imperfection. Here are some sons who said, “We know it’s true, but we don’t want to see it.”
I had the wonderful honor of preaching with Dr. Jack Hyles at least once a month for 22 years. Wait a minute, I knew he was not perfect because he was a human being like me, but I did not want to see his imperfection. I needed a hero. You need a hero. I knew he had weaknesses, but I did not want to see them. I knew he had sins, but I did not want to see them. I refused to allow myself to get that close.
Most divorces are caused because there is no mystique between husbands and wives anymore. Ladies, dress up for your husband like you would for guests in your home. Most church splits are caused because people become too close to each other. They begin to see all the warts. They see all the imperfections. They see all of the sins and here comes trouble in that church.
If you become too close to a staff member, let me tell you what you will find! As it is written, he is not righteous, he does not understand, and he does not seek after God. Let me tell you what you will find if you get too close to anyone. Romans 3:10-18 describes what you will find. Paul is speaking here about the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews thought they were better than the Gentiles. The Apostle Paul is saying you are no better than the Gentiles. He describes every human in these verses. This is the biography of Dr. Jack Hyles, Dr. John R. Rice, Dr. Curtis Hutson, Dr. B. R. Lakin, Dr. Lee Roberson and the Dr. Tom Malone’s of this world.
We have lost our mystique! You are going to find that your wife has the poison of asps under her lips, she is unprofitable, a throat that’s an open sepulcher, a tongue that uses deceit, her mouth is full of cursing and bitterness, her feet are swift to shed blood, and wives who become too close to their husbands will find the same thing out about them.
Let me see the beautiful forests, but do not let me become too close to see the knots, broken branches, dead branches, serpents, insects or the spiders. Let me stay at a distance and see the autumn time as the forest puts her coat of many colors on like Joseph of old. Let me step back and see it! Don’t let me become too close to see the diseased and dying tree. These two boys said, “We know daddy is a sinner, but we do not want to be reminded that daddy is a sinner.”
Denial is a virtue. Truth is overrated. Fantasy and magical thinking is what we need more of.
In the Southern rural sub-culture of the IFB this wind-sucking, pew-climbing preaching style is still somewhat common. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a preacher use a member’s head as a hand-hold for climbing up and down, though.

The problem I see here is a total lack of heroes in this film…
I just really hope he doesn’t wear tights.
Kangaroos, possums, and koalas connect with plants while pygmy possums are to nectars. The liver of a mononucleosis sufferer is often compromised with the Epstein Barr virus which targets the liver and affects its function. This can be an extreme stretch; if you feel you have reached full stretch capacity, stretch it further, then even further. Hot tea in addition to honey is one of the most common home made remedies that you can use. If effort is slow enough, try sucking with a hard candy between calls.
In fact, most people have zero heartburn and other acid reflux disorder complications that would typically be anticipated from the reflux disorder. Homemade sore throat treatments are equally effective in treating for this and they also match their usefulness given by an antibiotic or medicine. If you're nursing and baby develops a cough, don't stop breastfeeding. Aside from taking over the counter medicines, you'll find homeopathic treatments that one could try. In exactly the same, salt is an antiseptic that could eliminating the bacteria in your throat, which stops a percolating infection in the tracks.
Many are surprised, as well as angry, once they are told that they will 't be walking out with antibiotics. Why not ensure it is one which projects confidence and success. In this, it kept me in charge as well as my kids because children tend not to listen whenever you yell at them. I learned to stay open and permit my guides to aid me and as I did this, the cash came each month. Or perhaps you're coaching your kid's football team and, after 1 hour of practice, you have a sore throat.
