  1. First off, welcome to OB. I do, however, have to disagree with you on this. If a person who is a Catholic, SDA, JW or Mormon, and they believe everything their particular cult teaches, then there is no possible way that they are saved and will be in Heaven. The Catholics are pagans at best, heathens at worst. The JWs believe that Jesus is just "A" god, and not "THE" Son of God; and the Mormons believe that they themselves will become gods if they're good enough. None of that lines up with the biblical definition of salvation. Now it is possible for someone in one of those cults to get save

  2. Here's the part I think you're missing, which Jesus Christ? The Muhammaden version? The Catholic or Methodist version? The Mormon or Jehovah's Witness version? How about the Freewill Baptist or Nazarene Christ? Can any of their Messiah's save? Only by making repentance towards God and putting one's faith in Jesus Christ can one be saved; this is the Bible Way and the only way to heaven. All of those other works-based "religions" lead to the same place, eternal hell. None of them are in accord with the Scriptures.

  3. What's with the goofy t-shirts under the sport coats, anyway.... I'm amazed at how many, many Baptists listen to Casting Crowns. Its worldly music set to Christian words. I will agree it is difficult to put a black and white definition to "good music" and "bad music"......but if a person thinks the only bad part about rock music is the words, then its a discussion that you're not really going to be able to have, anyway.

  4. We baptised Sita 25 years ago, & her daughter in law soon after. Sita has been a very faithful church member & with her husband Ratten hosted our weekly meetings. He will be feeling very alone. I asked how long they had been married, & he said they had started planning for their golden wedding in May, so that will be a further occasion for sadness. She had cancer surgery 8 years ago, seemed to have recovered adequately but had health problems since & succumbed to secondary cancer last Sunday. Ratten said she was eager for Jesus to take her, & now she is at rest with he

  5. All they are doing with all of their many versions is Satan's work, just further confusing people.

  6. They've been using pressure cookers for years to make homemade bombs. I've seen some paody jokes claiming they are going to ban them but nothing serious, yet. They make bombs out of metal pipes, fertilizer, compressed gas, various canisters, and all sorts of things. If they want to ban something, start with Muslims, after all, they ban Christians from their countries.

  7. Amazing all the mighty works of God through the KJB over the past 400 years and still today. The only ones who really have a problem with the KJB are those who seem to think they are too educated to use such an "archaic" Bible, yet if they are so educated why do they need a Bible written at or below a 6th grade reading level using contemporary words and phrasings which change the meaning of the text! Some of these same folks sit and read Shakespeare in it's "archaic" form and then bespeak of it's beauty and recommend everyone read it yet they take the opposite approach with the KJB. Intere

  8. One Sunday morning years ago the local coC had a visiting preacher in view of call. During the morning service he asked one man in the congregation who happened to be a neighbor of mine that if he was at the gate of Heaven & was asked why should you enter into Heaven. The coC church member replied, “I have been baptized into the churches of Christ.” The preacher stated, “Wrong answer, you would never enter Heaven answering that way, baptizing does not save, there’s only one way to be saved, & its by grace though faith in Jesus Christ.” Right after the preaching service ended one of

  9. I don't know what I'd call it but no doubt much of what they call country music today is much more rockin than that song. A few years ago I heard this song sang by a pastor and a pastors wife. They didn't use this music but it sounded nice when they sang it. We were given a Southern Gospel DVD and that form of music has sure changed alot since I was younger! Many of the songs on that DVD were much more instrumentally heavy than in the above video. While I wouldn't want to go to that concert above, there are some of our brothers/sisters in Christ who do. It also shouldn't surprise u

  10. Aah! Heir, I do not find a question like 'do you agree with his doctrine of salvation' to be open-ended. It requires one to simply state what one understands his doctrine of salvation to be, and then indicate your agreement or lack thereof. Would you please stop dancing around the question? And stop with the accusations of witch-hunts and our supposed intractability. They are untrue and unnecessary. You have the right to leave this discussion at any time, if you so wish. If you wish to discuss Lewis - then by all means discuss him! I would love to hear some actual quotes and facts to back up e

  11. Praise God for His great grace and mercy which brings the lost out of darkness into His kingdom of light. Thanks be to God for the blessed hope we have in Christ, we know our saved loved ones who pass before us are safe and well with Jesus and that one day we will be reunited with them in glory. Praying the Lord will send comfort, strength and peace to help during this time of loss...

  12. Dave...no reason to get huffy with me like this. I'm not saying it was the greatest decision I ever made, but I explained, why, and in honesty why I did not provide you with an explanation. Those were my reasons, whether they were the best ones. I provided you with an explanation for why I hadn't offered the response you sought. Frankly...I don't exactly owe anyone that. You are now, as you were before...inter-lacing what you claim to be a genuine request for information with somewhat snide remarks like this one. What am I supposed to think? You are switching between what appears to be

  13. Yes we can, we have a copy of God's Word, & it gives only one way to be saved, not many, & those that refuse that one way are lost. They prove they are not saved by telling how they think they got saved. Tell us, about your salvation experience.

  15. Your right, theology doesn't save, Jesus saves, & its only by faith thru grace, not of works, not of self, its a gift, & the Catholic, SDA, JW or Mormon, as well as many more do not teach that, they teach a path to being saved that does not exist.

  16. I agree with some of this, but when a church teaches a false gospel then they are a false church. The biblical Gospel of salvation by grace through faith in Christ Jesus is the absolute key factor that separates true from false churches.

  17. I don't believe any of these conspiracy theories floating around about 9/11, Sandy Hook, or the Boston Bombings. However I also agree that the government uses them to gain further control. I do also think its very possible Russia could have been aware of this bombing before it happened. They certainly haven't apologized, that I know of? I also think that the original Saudi guy who was quietly deported and the meeting in the White House with the Saudi leader is fishy, but that has been very secretive. Still, I do not think these crises were manufactured or made up....just well used o
