DAB, I agree, it's all about economics. For me, it was about spirituality. I found inspiration in listening to The Word. I fully understand that any given stream is subject to replacement/removal. Am I going to leave SIRIUS? No. I will continue to get it from Directv. It does bother me that it is leaving, but hey, I'll survive.

I never listened to the Word and never knew Jesse Jackson was affiliated with it. Now I know, Im happy to see it go. What Jesse Jackson represents is not real Christianity, especially since Jackson doesnt even believe the Bible.

Ntilly - I'd step away from wherever you are getting this information from, because it is making you sound nothing but ignorant. I'm sure Jackson is sleazy and corrupt, but he does believe in the Christian God. And he is far from the only Christian evangelist who has been exposed to be sleazy and corrupt.

I would bet very few of those 15,000 signers of the petition have Sirius, but I wonder how Sirius can tell. They really don't have a good way of tracking ratings. Obviously The Word probably doesn't get as many listeners as Sports Radio, but how to they know it isn't outpreforming a station like Wisdom?

Jackson doesnt believe what the Bible teaches. Hes for abortion, gay rights, etc. I wasnt talking about his affair. He says he believes the Bible, but just cause he says it doesnt make it so. He believes things that the Bible clearly contradicts. So as a BIBLE BELIEVEING CHRISTIAN, Im happy to see anything associated with Jesse Jackson go.

Ntilly:

So I guess that makes any demonination or person that disagrees with you NOT Christian? You don't decide that, God decides it, and most of the things you mentioned are not even in the Bible, they're based on your personal belief. So how dare you presume what God's will is!

Romans Chapter 1 (verses 25-32) Homosexuality

Exodus 20 Abortion (Thou shalt not kill)

Actually those are the only things I mentioned.

Both are in the Bible.

I didnt decide those two things were in the Bible. God did.

Re: Abortion

Exodus 20:13 says “Thou shall not kill” (King James Version). It doesn’t say 1) The cells in the womb in the 1st trimester are “life”; or 2) define what is ‘killing’? Is capital punishment? War? I don’t think it means it but the point it, the verse is silent on what killing means so we can interpret it however we want.

Now you may have been referring to Exodus 21:22 where the rule is mentioned that if 2 fighting men injure a woman “with child” and “yet no mischief follows”, that the mother is to be compensated if there is a miscarriage or stillborn baby.

Your argument is that the cellular matter in the first trimester is developed enough to be an unborn child, and God specifically referred to the rights of the unborn child as we would refer to a born person’s right to liability today. Therefore the unborn child has been given rights akin to that of a living person and we should preserve those.

But, according to the text the killing an ‘unborn child’ isn’t at least significant enough to be considered ‘mischief’, so it cannot be considered a crime, can it? What we consider a ‘non-mischief’ crime now is damage to property, like a car getting dented. Any harm to a person is considered ‘mischief’ if not something greater. If he wanted to define the cells in a womb as ‘life’ he would have said “no OTHER mischief” to indicate that an ‘unborn child’ has rights.

Just as an aside, doesn’t the killing of ALL firstborn in Egypt in Moses’ time indicate that God was not bound by the rule not to kill children either? Because unless all firstborn males in Egypt were adults he would have been killing children and babies and even firstborn in the womb.

And if your argument then shifts to define when God breaths the ‘breath of life’ into us, the Biblical verse Psalms 139:13-16 doesn’t say ‘at conception’ or ‘at birth’ or any other figure. So what are we left to? Neither we nor religious figures nor scientists are qualified to say when that happens. Our individual interpretations form our beliefs.

Re: Homosexuality

Again, we’re arguing interpretation because the mentioned verses specifically condemn those who turn from ‘natural’/heterosexual procreation to homosexuality or even homosexual feelings “consumed with passion for one another”. But those people who never practiced heterosexuality and always practiced homosexuality aren’t mentioned.

So you can argue it means all heterosexuality is evil, and I will argue it means that if people have inner feelings they should act on them rather than trying to be something they’re not (heterosexual).

And as long as you are arguing Biblical inerrancy is the only way to truly believe in God, then you must agree with Matthew 5:27-30 which makes anyone looking at a woman guilty of committing adultery. Should I stay off the beaches here in Florida so I don't look at the beautiful women wearing bikinis because some of them are married?

I welcome your response.

Instead of this going off into a religious debate, let's agree to disagree, believe in what we believe in, and if the first one to die can come and let the rest of us know the truth, then we can change our minds. Otherwise, this is going to spin into a long debate into religion in which noone will be convinced otherwise and only try to convince the other party they are going to the less desirable destination.

What's interesting is before he became a lapdog for the Democratic party, he was pro-life. He either wrote a paper on it or gave a speech on it.

This channel was only added due to strong-arm PR tactics. Word did a smear campaign on XM when they refused to carry it!

http://www.findarticles.com/p/articl...15/ai_92001629

Here's another article about it:
http://www.maynardije.org/columns/di...020923_prince/

The other was a smaller protest of XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. for not carrying religious gospel channel The Word Network, while at the same time carrying programming that Sharpton's group said glorifies violence, drugs and the degradation of women. Among the offending channels it identified were reggae channel The Joint and Playboy Radio.

In a statement last week, XM said: "We have informed NAN that we currently have a programming partnership with D.C.-area-based Radio One, the nation's largest African-American-owned radio company, which programs five channels including Spirit, the first national 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week gospel channel, and The Power, the first national African-American talk channel."


I think that speaks for itself.

What makes me happy is knowing God as my Savior. I'm not here to please you or anyone else on this forum. Now you're making youself to be like the donkey (I won't use the other word) that Mary and Joseph rode into Bethlehem the night that Jesus was born. It appears that you are acknowleding to be a demonic spirit from your previous post. I'll pray for you because you really need JESUS!!!!

Well thanks for the offer, but my life has changed for the worse thanks to people, who pass judgment on people they don't know.

Leave judgment to the Lord, says I. That's his job, is it not?
