Banned Again...

Recommended Posts

...and I count it a blessing!

I was a member of the forum 1858remington.com and the enemies of Christ (professing Christians) have banned me for quoting God's Word in the off-topic section. I told them I would not cower or be bullied when they could call evil (drinking,smoking,pornography) good and good (God's Word) evil.

I am continually amazed at the blindness of the lost, not just to God's Word but to common sense and rational thought processes.

It is my hope that while there, some of the men thought about their spiritual conditions and turned to Christ.


"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. - Matthew 5:10-13"

I'm more amazed when that blindness to God's Word and to common sense happens to Christians. But, I do know what you're saying! Edited by NotAshamed

I was banned from several "Christian" boards for quoting from the KJB and for quoting Scripture when discussing various issues on the forum. Mods on one "Christian" board told me "everything doesn't have to be about what the Bible says" and "there is no need to drag Scripture into these discussions", as well as "these have nothing to do with Christianity".

One forum banned me because the user name I chose when I signed up turned out to be similar to the user name of someone else they didn't like. When I tried to make it clear to them I wasn't whoever the other person was and even said I had no problem with my posts being on probation they said they didn't care, I was banned and wasn't welcome. Yes, that was a "Christian" board too.

Actually, it was after several tries on various "Christian" forums that I found myself being attacked on and kicked out that I was about to give up on such when I came across Online Baptist and decided I would give it one more try. What a blessing! I still remember the folks who made me feel so welcome here when I first joined, though most don't post here anymore. OB has been my home on the internet since then.

I was banned from a site that worshipped John Piper. Everything was John Piper. They were nuts about the guy. Nothing that guy said could ever be questioned. I can't even remember what it was that got me banned. I think it was something to do with Bob Jones U. and race but I'm not sure. Anyway, the website doesn't exist anymore. At least I can't find it.

For awhile it seemed Piper was all the rage all over. I don't hear much about him anymore. I still don't know much about him. I watched a couple video clips of him and I didn't care for the way he talked or preached but I don't remember anything else about him.

I left, stopped posting, on a health board. I was asked to remove Merry Christmas from my signature for someone had complained that I should not mention Christ.

Of course the moderator did not like me because I told her dogs did not have a soul, & dogs did not get saved by Jesus.

My last post I stated, "I will just leave, I do not want to be in a place where Jesus is not welcome for that is where the Devil will be ruling."

Most Christian boards out there have little to no discernment. They reject the KJB, accept infant Baptism and most even call Catholics Christians. This site seems to be one of the few places left for uncompromising sanity. Well, at least for the most part. ;)

I voluntarily left a site several years ago that worshiped the Buckeye's Football team. They attacked the Gospel of Jesus and rejected the word of God.

If I ran a health discussion board and you started talking about whether dogs go to heaven, I'd ban you for going too OT! ;-)

I was banned from a KJV board after only two posts. One on the welcome board and the other a prayer request. It seems that someone told them I was a preterist, not true.

I mad sure that my post were very uncontroversial.

On the board where they banned me because the user name I chose was similar to someone elses whom they didn't like, I had posted several posts before a Mod showed up, saw my user name and decided to ban me even though every post was non-confrontational, non-controversial, and even so I was still banned. I tried to appeal the decision but to no avail.

I was banned from a ruckmanite site because I told them that they were worshiping Peter Ruckman and holding his writings higher than the Bible


You probably deserved to be banned even if you believed it was true. I'm sure there are people in the past that have made claims here that we worship the KJV Bible and put it higher than God and they were banned.

I somewhat disagree with what you stated. There is no way I can like your post.

The KJB is God's Word, & its the only way we can know God, or know what God expects out of us, & without the KJB we would not know how to follow Jesus. And the only way God speaks to us is though His Word.

If what we do agrees with the God's Word within the KJB, we are OK, if not, them we are not OK. Edited by Jerry80871852

I'm not sure I understand what you disagree with. Do you mean if they would accept the KJB then they would also accept believers Baptism?

No, what i mean is if you speak the English language in the KJB is where you will find God's truths, not in a perverted modem version.

And of course, there is no other baptism sanctioned by God except for the believers baptism.

I agree with you on both accounts. You can find some truths in almost any Bible but with all the verses taken out and words changed they should be discarded just like the Greek Manuscripts were that they are based on (ex. Codex Sinaiticus).

If you are interested in a good read, One Book Stands Alone: The Key to Believing the Bible, by Dr. Stauffer is one I highly would recommend. It goes over in great detail the reasons why the modern versions (perversions) could not possibly be the Word of God and effectively proves how and why the King James Version is God's Word preserved for the English language.

God led me to the KJB before I even knew of the battle over versions or had ever heard of KJO.

I grew up in the Methodist church using the RSV and the only Bible I had when I was saved was the RSV I had been given through Methodist Sunday school. I used that RSV for a few years before coming to find out there were so many other versions out there. I was told it was good to read many different versions to really get good understanding. So, I bought inexpensive copies of several different versions. It didn't take long for me to realize that it wasn't as helpful as I was told. How was I to get a good understanding of the Word when I could read the same passage in a half dozen or more versions and find that many of them seemed to say something different? Eventually I settled on the NASB. Why? Simply because it was an "American" Bible. A few more years passed and one day the Lord clearly told me (no, I didn't hear a voice, but His Spirit did clearly "speak" to me in my mind) to take up the KJB exclusively. I did that and within short order I could see the blessing of the Lord on my using the KJB. The Word really came alive to me, I found that I could suddenly memorize Scripture almost easily, and I experienced more growth in the Lord during that first year of using the KJB than I had prior to that.

It was later that I actually learned about the KJO position, that I learned of the versions controversies and battles. I thank God for His direct intervention bringing me to the KJB!

I find two things quite amazing.

1. The number of very intelligent people that profess to know the Lord as their Savior, yet they seem blind & deaf accepting any Bible version that comes along even though they can be proven to be perverted.

2. The many very intelligent people that will accept a false Gospel.

I has to be this one thing.

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

& or

Their lust to run with the majority willingly sacrificing the truth.

I've encountered several otherwise intelligent men who are obviously born again Christians yet for some reason when it comes to the versions issue they do indeed seem blind to truth and reality. Many have blindly accepted the propaganda that the KJB was good in it's day but now we have "better" versions because we have "better" manuscripts the KJB translators didn't have and some even think todays translators are even smarter.

Sadly, and often it sees oddly, even once presented with the evidence showing the corrupt nature of the "new and better" manuscripts, the fact that the various versions contradict one another, and breed confusion, they seem uninterested or simply unwilling to accept the truth.

I can understand professing Christians who might not even be born again who reject the truth or blindly accept the anti-KJB propaganda, but when it comes to those who seem to be born again Christians, of good intelligence, and they either don't care about the matter or reject the evidence, it's hard to understand why.

If you dig a little deeper I'd gather that you'd find gross theological errors in their lives. As time goes by and I learn more, it becomes clear that these men too are false converts.

Mitt Romey and Glenn Beck seem like pretty intelligent guys right? How about Bill Clinton and Donald Trump? Yet every one is destined for hell, the path is narrow.

There are folks out there who are saved yet weak in their faith, sound in some areas, off in others, some who are all over the place, but they are born again Christians. I know some sound Christian men who use the NIV (one of the worst versions as far as I'm concerned and one I was never able to get anything out of). How they are as solid Christians as they are using that warped NIV I don't know but they do.

Mitt and Glenn are both avowed Mormons who serve a false god and believe in a false Jesus so it's obvious they are lost. Bill Clinton professes to be a Christian but his actions say otherwise and after reading a book dealing with his religious learnings and teachers, it's little wonder. I don't know much about Trump, but I thought I saw somewhere that he looks down on Christianity; if so, he's another who is obviously lost.

Usually after spending some time with folks it becomes pretty apparent whether or not they are actually following Christ from a born again heart or if they are just going through the motions. However, sometimes we just can't tell.
