Our Ladies of the New World Order

Each year Comic-Con comes and the nerds of the world rejoice. Of course, it has become a massive Hollywood hype machine of late. Geek nirvana has become the place for A-listers to drop in, smile pretty, make an entire ballroom of people freak out and unveil the latest trailer for their new film before helicoptering out to their nerd-free tropical islands. I’m imagining that’s how it works; I’ve never been or anything. This year the two trailers that got me most excited were for the latest installment of “The Hunger Games” and the new “Mad Max.” I have to say Katniss edges out Charlize Theron and her shaved head/mechanical arm by a tiny bit because, duh, it’s The Hunger Games. But for sheer blowing shit up in the midst of dust storms at the end of civilization as we know it, the “Mad Max” reboot looks pretty damn cool. So, which are you most excited about? (p.s. You’re welcome to say “Batman v. Superman” and their glowy eyed glare off, but I am not convinced yet – not by a long shot.)

CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? BY STEVE FINNELL

What is the meaning of calling on the name of the Lord? Many assume that believing in Jesus and saying a form of a sinner's prayer constitutes, calling on the name of the Lord. The problem with that theory is none of the conversions under the New Covenant support that assumption. Not one time is anyone ever told to believe and say the sinner's prayer in order to be saved.

The apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost quoted the prophet Joel, Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (NKJV)

The apostle Peter preached the first gospel sermon under the New Covenant. Peter did not tell the 3000 converts to believe and say the sinner's prayer.

Peter preached the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. He preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. When they heard this they asked Peter and the rest of the brethren what they should do?(Acts 2:22-37) Peter told them what to do. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost call on the name of the Lord and become saved?
1. They believed that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.
2. They believed that God raised Jesus from the grave.
3. They repented. Repentance is a change of heart. Repentance means to be converted so that God may forgive your sins. Repentance is to make the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God. (Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38)
4. They were immersed in water (baptized) so that their sins could be forgiven.

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost not call on the name of the Lord?
1. They did not say a sinner's prayer.
2. Not one person was asked to pray for forgiveness.
3. Not one single man was told to be baptized as a testimony of his faith.
4. No one was told that water baptism was a just an act of obedience.
5. No one was informed they were saved the very minute they believed.
6. Not one person was told that water baptism was not essential for the forgiveness of sins.
7. Not one person was told to be baptized so they could join a denominational church.

Jesus said he that believes and is baptized shall be saved. (Mark 16"16) Jesus did not say he who believes and says a sinner's prayer shall be saved.

I really just want to spam that blog with quotes like " AND GOD SAID THAT THE LESBIANS WOULD INHERIT THE EARTH! SO SAYETH ALL OF THE CATS AND INDIGO GIRLS, AMEN!" Also I'm nerdily looking forward to the hunger games.

AHHHH!!

so sorry for the scream, my eyes were burning after suddenly getting ambushed by Doctrine Spam.

Anyways, just wanted to say how impressed I was by Hunger Games, this tiny flimsy harry potter whistle wannabe movie, compared to Twilight OF ALL THINGS, has now become this epic multi layered adult of a movie. (NOT ADULT MOVIE, THATS A DIFFERENT THING. I'M SAYING THE FRANCHISE HAS GROWN UP, DAMNIT)

THANK YOU, Francis Lawrence.
