  1. It is not at all my intention to engage in "name-calling," save to employ the respectful title of "Brother" unto the other. (Please note -- I do recognize that this would not be possible If I were to engage in some "debate" sometime in the future with one whom I did not believe was a believer, such as the atheist whom Brother Matt mentioned earlier.) It is my intention to be guided in the discussion by the following rules: Colossians 4:6 -- "Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." Ephesians 4:29-30 -- "Let no cor

Went out soulwinngin/visiting: (1) some people wouldn't talk at all (guy with black tatoos and no shirt said church people are hypocrites and pointed to a tatoo of a cross and said "this is my religion" and told us to go ... my partner talked to him for a while more) (2) found a house with old bus riders so the bus captain over that area will get an address with about 5 kids that the mother said used to come ... the mother wrote down the address phone and names of the kids (3) several dogs running around the middle of the street ... dogs everywhere (4) spoke with and prayed with some peopl

  3. I'd rather get them all out of the way to avoid side shows for those who think the Calvinist forgot something. Or it can be 1-1 with allowances made for the Calvinist to use handicaps, life lines and dial-a-Calvinist I'll catch up more after the week end is over. We passed out tracts today during a homo parade which went over about as well as a model duck posing at a gun range, and then before sunrise we are moving our stuff to another family member's house in Jaffa. I'm sick of Tel Aviv. When I had to walk over a rainbow colored crosswalk to get my coffee, that was it for me LOL.

  4. Thanks, everyone. Well, I smuggled in a KJV for her and also my concordance. I put a bookmark in place of all the spots that talk about the moon and moons, since that is what she is interested in. The KJV is also a study Bible. I bought it years ago, and never used it b/c the print is too small for me to read. She said it wouldn't be a prOBlem for her to read b/c she wears contacts. She was very excited. She also told me that she can't find her NIV. She recently moved, and she said it must have got lost in a box she had some other things stored in. Anyway, she left the room and said

  5. In that past we have had discussion where only certain members that wanted to can post in. We did this for an atheist one time, it was not ""freestyle" but was done in a debate style and one could post at his/her convenience. We had rules that the "debaters" had to follow and everyone followed the rules and it went very smoothly. Everyone could view the discussion. I guess it could be done again.

  11. The SBC is a bunch of churches that cooperate under the umbrella of the collective title SBC. The president of the SBC doesn't rule over all the churches in the SBC. This is both good and prOBlematic. It's good that one man can't dictate to all those churches but it also limits the presidents ability to try and lead those churches in a biblical direction. Some SBC churches are yet biblically conservative, yet at the other end there are some who have taken very liberal turns, and then there are all the others in between. Looking at our own IFB churches today we can, unfortunately, see the s

  13. Invigorating, educational, practical, motivational and just plain great Conference. If you have never been to one of these Leadership Conf, I would encourage you to go. Not only is it pretty good preaching, but the sessions all day and afternoon are just invaluable to the full time worker. Many dozens of real life full time workers who are sharing what has worked for them, why and what has and why. No puffed up shirts (at least I didn´t see it that way) but just genuine, sincere men of service trying to be a help to others get ahead in the ministry and do something for the Lord. Steve Ch

Both of our boys love to bowhunt, gun-hunt, bowfish, frog gig, alligator hunt, skin snakes, drive pickup trucks, operate power tools, cut wood, and do the 'man stuff'...and they wear britches but no ear rings *** Kids need a mama to learn the girly stuff and daddy to teach the man stuff. And when you have a sissy dad who won't lead (or who isn't around) or a mom who 'wears the britches', it's a recipe for troub

  15. This is a two person thread. Any others who wish to comment need another thread. I am opening this thread for discussion - the debate isn't happening. I am aware of the Wiki CT link. What I propose to do is establish a CT system taking into account the overall position of this board, to see to what extent we can find Scriptural agreement from an independent baptist perspective. Our Bible is divided into OT & NT. The word "testament" does not occur in the OT, and where OT quotations & equivalent expressions occur in the NT, "covenant" is used. We should therefore conside

  16. There are a number of discussions and "debates" in which I would be interested to engage on this forum, including the following: The issue of "tithing" with Brother "Standing Firm in Christ." The issue of "plurality of elders" with Brother "Prophet1." The issue of "the title Pastor" with Brother "Prophet1." The issue of "regeneration before faith" with the Calvinistic representatives on the forum. The various other issues of "Calvinistic soteriology" with the Calvinistic representatives on the forum. Various other issues of Biblical interpretation and Biblical doctrine as they arise a

  27. CL and Luanne, Just to clarify, I am not anti- KJV, I more or less have a prOBlem with Peter Ruckman, Sam Gipps of the world. If a brother/sister in Christ wants to use the KJV, great! I also believe that other translations are profitable. That's why I have Augustine's quote in my signature.( BTW . I found that quote in the transcription of the translators of the KJB) Out if the 7 Bibles I own at home, 4 of them are KJ, a Scofield, an Open BibLe,Thompson chain reference and a huuuuge Bible that was given to us on my wife's and I wedding day. I also own an NIV, ESV and a NLT. At our church

  28. Well, it was something our founding pastor actually preached and taught about. He actually planned on stepping down on our 40th anniversary, and 10 years before began teaching about what we should be looking for in a pastor, why we should be praying about it, etc. So, in reality, most of us began praying long before that. It took a few years longer because of a situation that arose, but that really just meant more praying.

  30. Okay - that's very interesting. I don't see it as much different from our voting, though. The men of the church came to him...they had to agree that he was the one meant. Which is actually almost the same as putting it to a vote. We didn't have a bunch of men coming in. We began praying about it about a year before we knew it would be time to change over (our founding pastor was stepping down to become an assistant rather than the pastor due to age). We prayed for a number of things: That God would send the man He wanted That God would lead the pulpit committee (which, in our chur

  33. I've been KJB since the Holy Ghost "told me" to use the KJB. It wasn't until after that before I ever even heard of anyone being KJO. It wasn't until I joined this board that I ever heard of Ruckman. I don't like any of the paraphrase "Bibles" (which I don't really consider to be actual Bibles because they are some man's idea of taking God's Word and then putting His Word into the man's own choice of wording as if he could do a better jOB than God! All the while, these paraphrases which are not backed by any scholarship or peer review for accuracy, are tainted and sometimes outright tarnis

  35. One of the weaknesses within the SBC is it's inability to get member churches to comply with the stated positions of the SBC. There is also a prOBlem in dealing with churches which reach a point they should be ejected from the SBC. This is one of the areas the SBC should attempt to address and correct, at least to the point where they establish a set of foundational principles that must be adhered to by churches within the SBC and if a member church violates one (or more) of those foundational principles they should receive a personal visit from the president and a couple others (or a smal

    The ABs have a history of coming back from behind. Most of their plays are strategic to enable the opposing team to think they have the advantage. My guess is that they will save their energy for the quarter and semifinals.The Eagles vs the AllBlacks game should be well worth watching as I do not think the ABs will annihilate them on their own turf, rather for the sake of the game...they will go easy.

    Hard preaching today is not what you say; but how you say it. He may have let the Pharisees have it; but I seriously doubt He was ranting and raving while He did it.

  41. I agree with that; however the SBC has a hierarchy whereas the IFB doesn't. Many IFB churches were once SBC churches and pulled away because of that.

  42. You would have to find a way to force people to answer the questions actually asked. Many of the issues you note the proponents constantly sidestep when they are brought to a point they can't - or won't - defend, hence the rabbit trails.

  44. Yes, Brother, I am aware of your zeal and passion with regard to this issue. However, I do not believe that our discussion shall progress exactly as others have. Now, I could be somewhat biased in that regard; therefore, it might not be worth considering my opinion on that matter. Concerning the matter of progress, for me the prOBlem is one of time. On the other hand, depending on the manner in which our discussion might progress, we might even be able to post more often. I just do not wish to make commitments that overextend my time abilities and thus cause me to fail in those commi

  45. Building and Increase Who do you call when you want a house built? Yes, the similarities are profound. Jesus Christ has called us to be builders. House building requires sticking to the planned design of the building. The plan for Christians is in the Bible with our spiritual eyes are fixed on Christ. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

  47. Sometimes God's judgment of a nation comes from Him turning the people over to their own sins. Look at the "leadership" in America today. Look at the degradation and division and multiplying of sin through acceptance of homosexuality. Consider the excessive debt of the nation, States, cities and individuals. The porn industry in America takes in more money and exports more films than does Hollywood and their own ungodly movies. Then there is high divorce rates, millions of babies murdered through legal abortion, rampant unwed pregnancies, children growing up without fathers, shacking up as

  48. That's true. I was visiting a regular baptist church a few weeks ago (long story). The pastor was preaching a series on the Sabbath. He'd mentioned that he'd never heard a sermon on the Sabbath or been taught anything about in Bible School, and had to do a lot of research before creating this sermon series. I was actually pretty impressed with him for approaching the topic - a lot more meat than one usually gets in evangelical churches. My friend, who goes to that church, was all impressed about it, having never heard teaching on such a subject himself either. Which made me laugh because sin
