The wheat and tares are being sorted out. And within the “church” as well.

Well -- no, not yet, to be precise. That will happen at the harvest, when His angels do the reaping, and reject evil things and people fom entering His Kingdom (See Mt. 13:36-43).

But MacArthur narrows this down to Democrats, whereas one should compare not only the theology and practice of that Party's platform, but also the statement of faith and practice of each of the major denominations, as well as the personal religion as practiced politically of the defeated nominees in the last general election.

"There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one" (Rom. 3:11,12).

They all seem to be in the hand of the wicked one. Just look at them. How is your theology? How is mine? We need to turn to the Holy Scriptures and find out, conduct a personal inventory.

"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in The Faith; prove your own selves ..." (2 Cor. 13:5a,b,c)

look at the church of today. many of the mainstream denominations have gone the way of liberalism - womens ordination, gay leadership, gay marriage - where are these churches going - nowhere.

today’s christian church is being tested in America. the testing will weed out the sheep and the wolves. True Christianity will win out. The problem though is America must go through a purging of its falsely held beliefs. There will be a time of trial and tribulation. The Christian Church of the uSA will go through a purging, and in time the Christian Church of the USA will not be recognizable as the big churches of today. There are many false teachers whom believe bigger is better, similar to a Centralized Government.

Tell Me is Rick Warren’s Church winning people to Christ whom can stand the the time of tribulation weaning out of the chaff from the wheat. I do not believe so. What about Joel Osteen? Where is the Crystal cathedral of California?

Wickedness does not have more power than God. This would be a non-Biblical dualism that both God and the Devil have equal power here on earth. It is man’s easy believism that makes forth weak christians that have been feed only milk toast and no substance when trials and tribulations do appear. I am not saying the rapture, I am saying that the Church will be tested. I strongly believe this will be the testing whereby family members turn against one another, neighbors turn in neighbors for their strong convictions in Christ Jesus.

Sins of Romans 1:18 - 32 are the following (with emphasis of the sins listed in verses):
18 - wrath of God is revealed from heaven on unrighteusness and ungodliness.
21 - Denial of God. unthankfulness, , futile in the actions and deeds, and foolish hearts darkened.
22- wisdom has become folly.
23 - glory of God which is incorruptibe to a corruptible Glory of Man
24 - Therefore God gave them up in their uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts to dishonor their bodies among.
25 - exchanged the truth of God for a lie. served the creature not the Creator (God)
26 -God gave them up to their evil passions, even their women exchanged what was natural for the unnatural
27 - Men lusting for men.
28 - God not retained. Debasement of man to that which is not fitting.
29 - unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, coveteousness, maliciousness, full of envy,murder, strife, deceit, evil mindedness, they are whispereres,
30 - backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 - undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful
32- knowing the righteous judgement of God - these people have denied Him, and are deserving of death

Romans 2-16 goes on with God’s Judgement and God’s desire for relationship with the ungodly.
