Blog Topic in Newspaper Article

Tom Lochner wrote about this subject of my previous blog here. He was very fair and perhaps couldn't have written it better for us if I had written it myself. I thought we had a very good 30-60 minute conversation with him seeing things much more my way at the end, but you never know what someone might do. This was initiated by the head of the Sikh temple. So you can read for yourself how it turned out. (Interestingly enough, he downloaded the entire tract. Here is a good reason for editing as well :) . No real mistakes in the tract, but I've stylistically improved since writing it. )

Hi Kent, thanks for the link. Very interesting. The comments by the guy at the end were pretty disgusting, I assume he professes some kind of Christianity. These are the most dangerous types, but they are so prevalent all over professing Christianity these days. Thank you, Billy Graham, et al.

They will join with the others in stoning those who will tell the truth. They are enemies of the faith.

That interfaith guy sounded pretty Sikh to me.

First - COC, now Sikh...this is getting to be very interesting.

You are famous brother! I commend your bravery and God is blessing by means of the gospel having been furthered by that article which was written.

This was excellent!! Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (Joh 14:6)

They'll be TRULY "sikh" when they open their eyes facing this same Jesus after they die!

Jerry Bouey said...

Yes, echoing the last reply (Derek's, in case there are others inbetween)! It is neat how the Lord used that controversy to publicly print a Gospel tract!

"The Sikh Golden Rule from Guru Granth Sahib is 'No one is enemy. No one is stranger. I get along with All,'" he said.




Yes he gets along with every body except someone that disagrees with him. lol

I thought the substance and styling of the Sikh's response was interesting. I see the same thing out here in Utah. A mormon starts to lose an argument and they suddenly panic. While I get sweaty and nervous when I panic, it seems you can be trained to blurt your testimony of how happy you are being wrong.

I guess it's not just a Utah thing.

As usually racist's get it wrong. Sikh's respect everyone's right to worship God in whatever form as long as it is one eternal being. We have no problem if some people believe that their religion is Supreme, as most on this blog do. Sikh's do not believe that. If you feel that I am making the wrong choice for not being a baptist then by all means keep it to your self. Do'nt try and forcibly convert me by spreading hate propaganda to my people.

Additionally, pastor, no faith of the Bible or any other holy book came to America and influenced the inclusion of the Freedom of Speech Clause. While the peopel coming to America were runnign from religious persecution, they persecuted their non biblical counterparts. The only reason we both have the ability to practice our religion freely is because of the Freemasons. May God bless them all.

Freemasons?

I love it when Anonymous displays his wisdom.

Kent Brandenburg said...

I think the Freemason comment was tongue in cheek, anonymous. I'm getting mixed up about who is anonymous and who is not. It reminds me of a round tuit. People will do something when they finally get a round tuit. If I sold round tuits, would people get more done?

Kent Brandenburg said...

Oh, and anonymous, is there anything to your little stick person leaning to the left? Do you lean left? or was it just more comfortable to rest your right elbow against the anonymous wall?

Jerry Bouey said...

Why do they call them "free"masons anyway? Everyone I have ever seen has been too costly! (Try walking out the door with one of them that hasn't been paid for, and you will see they aren't free...)

Aside from their false history, it is an interesting study to learn how Baptists brought freedom of religion and the Baptist distinctive of liberty of conscience to North America. So many hate the Baptists - yet they still want the freedoms that the fathers of our faith brought our countries.
