Be a little more specific then. You post a picture of Tom Cruise, you highlight Greece, and then make your commentary at the bottom.

What was so hard to understand? You made a comment in a rolling discussion. Did you forget the statements you already posted? 1) America is the ONLY nation founded on biblical principles. 2) Yet, I just DON'T see a country like the USA turning Apostolic. 3) Greece and whoever else on your list were never 100% Christ followers.

You were wrong on one, so I combined both of your thoughts then posted about Greek flag. Which made three only partially correct. Leaving number two, pretty sad. Because you know why Christendom is called Christendom? It actually the dominion of Christianity in a world order sense. Historically all the lands on the planet where Christians were the ruling power. Whether, or not they held to the approved doctrine. Now, allow me to say this, if Apostolic Pentecostal was pollists' criteria for Christianity on their charts excluding all other sects, and forms. Then my brother, Christianity would be considered a flea compared to other other religions? Can Apostolic Pentecostalism take over the world? Not if they are too busy focused on leaving, and not focused more on taking people with them. Not if they hold to an idea that it is impossible and impractical to consider changing the world through Acts 2:38. Her predominant eschatology "the end" is just that, GAME OVER. Paul Boter's book "Time Shall be No More" is the impact dispensationalism has on particularly this country. Mormons have the same ingredient in the LDS. Only difference is, that Mormons believe themselves to be the saviors of the United States and that one day before the end they will rule it. therefore Adam will convene a meeting at Adam-ondi-Ahman ( Daviess County, Missouri ) to officially turn the government of the human family over to Jesus Christ.

Brother, I was being facetious. This is what I originally posted,

Because apparently with some in the church realm, America is the only nation founded on biblical principles. in which I was responding to Originalist question,

That can be said of any nation on the planet. Why is the USA singled out for this kind of statement?

I don’t believe America is Christian or founded on Biblical principles. And when I say that I’m referring to the founding fathers.

How am I wrong on one, you’re going to tell me people in the Church do not considered America as a Christian nation? Right!

I’m sorry but I do not believe Pentecostalism is going to take over the world. I do believe you can change your world around you. In other words you can change your city, your area. Also, the word of God is all over the globe, its not hindered by borders or territories, this gospel has reached the world. Also, its not our responsibility to save people, the Bible says “no man cometh unto the father save the spirit draw him”, God saves, not me or you. It’s the responsibility of you and myself to be plugged into the Spirit that way when God deals with an individual we can minister the way that person needs.

For example, this article was sent to me the other day,
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...UlrCY09I08RwKg

You and I have work in our areas that we need to do.

I understand about how the rapture message has made Apostolic’s lazy, yet we need to keep our perspective right.

Trust me, I'm not depressed nor am I depressing.

Except to people who expect me to genuflect everytime they play the pipes I guess?
1 Kings 22:8 KJV
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the Lord : but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.
Thatís interesting. So, you are claiming to be a Prophet?

Yes, that's great. But I've been pointing out folks are gonna need more than slogans. The Pharisees weren't averse to invoking God, either. Faith plus works, not faith only, and all that.

Nosferatu1968, can't you see the contradiction you are making? Seriously bro, take a moment and objectively consider your statement in the above quote.

Calvinists have beaten down Christianity so much over "Not Saved By Works" that Christianity is a laughing stock to all other religions.

Okay, I take it that would be a yes since you avoided answering the question.
