  1. Meditations in Ezekiel 1. The Requirement for a Spiritual Watchman Ezekiel 33:1-2 – “Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman . . . .” 2. The Reality of the Spiritual Watchman Ezekiel 33:2 – “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman . . . .” Ez

  2. With respect to you, the word of God cannot be against itself. Jesus did say: "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." And this is not about doing the Law for salvation. It is about living.

  3. In my last post, I didn't mean we had to "KEEP" anything. It is wrong to murder. It is wrong to commit adultery. It is wrong to steal. It is wrong to worship anything other than the Lord. It is wrong to bear false witness, lying. Etc.,... Don't know why people tend to focus on the idea that people have or had to "KEEP" anything. With someone, whether New Testament or Old Testament, a belief with all your heart in the Lord, is not a - "HAVE TO KEEP" anything - type of 'religion'. It never was! Gods way of living here on earth has never changed. He wants us to believe in him with

  5. Well Phil, speaking for myself I will not buy your book. You sound like someone who has an axe to grind. I seriousely doubt that you have the qualifications to paint all Independent Baptists with such a broad brush. You write like you think Independent Baptist is a denomination or association and all operate in the same manner. The title of your book speaks volumes regarding your bitterness and anger, which has no place in the life of a Christian. I would suggest that a better avenue would be to take your prOBlem to the Lord, rather than sowing discord among those you once called brother.

    Creation And The New Year

    Another excellent article by Dr.Morris. Whoever puts these articles on by Creation Science should be congratulated. As Covenanter brought out, the Gap Theory as taught by Scofield and others, is not biblical, scientific, or even logical. Once a person truly believes the Bible as it is written the beauty of creation, and the plan of God, unfolds in a wonderful manner throughout the scriptures, science, history, and eternity. God is perfect in all of His works in the spiritual and physical realm. Again, thank you for the excellent article on Genesis 1:1 and the new year. AlanTaiw

    Be Ye Followers Of Christ

    What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? We are saved by the Blood of Christ, forgiven of our sin, and eternally secured with Him. But what does it mean to be a Follower of Christ? 1Co_4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. 1Co_11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Eph_5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; Php_3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 1Th_1:6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the

    What Authority?

    Authority is found several times in the Bible. I like its use in Luke 7:2-10: And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. (Luke 7:2 KJV) Rome held authority over Israel and shared that authority with its soldiers. This soldier was responsible for one hundred men who reported to him, as well as his own household. As a man of authority, he went to authorities when he needed help: And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. (Luke 7:3 KJV) Notice that he didn’t appro

  12. It is OBvious to me a contrary thought about the "law" not being a thing the Gentiles were 'to do', (the 10 commandments I mean.) It is ingrained in everyone to do something. Paul taught it to the Gentiles in Ephesians. Look: Ephesians 3 - 1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Whic

  13. If your book were about one particular IFB church, how that church took a bad turn and written to help others avoid such happening in their church, using Scripture as the guide, then perhaps such a book would be of benefit. However, your book sounds to be about you having been in an IFB church that took a bad turn so now you want to denounce all IFB churches. The fact the "I" stands for "Independent" should be kept in mind for all IFB churches are unique to one degree or another and none are bound together by any organization, convention or constitution. We live in a fallen world fille

  17. Unfortunately I've encountered many Christians over the years with similar attitudes. They carry on about the evils of certain performers and their music, often saying unsavory things about them, and then with what seems a sense of pride and satisfaction talk about how they are, or one day will be burning in hell. We tend to be very lax in our praying for the lost. Too many of us take glee in the idea "they'll get what's coming to them" seeming to forget, or not realize, that there but for the grace of God would we be. It's the same thing with certain criminals and political leaders. I

  18. This article left me with a profound feeling of sadness. Here we have real life illustration of Mark 8:36: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? John Lennon was a man who clearly was looking for something to fill the God-shaped vacuum in his heart, and I wonder if he may have found it if those who bitterly attacked him had prayed for him to find God's truth and shown Christ's love instead. I remember a visiting speaker in my chapel once gloating that half the Beatles were in hell, and he was praying that they could soon have a full reunion con

  19. While I am fascinated by the discovery of the fragment of Mark's gospel, I am also wary. I don't trust dating methods, though the younger something is,the more accurate they tend to be. But I still don't trust it. So if it comes up as following the Alexandrian, I won't be shocked, because I don't know that I believe they dated it accurately. It is a curious item, no more. If it follows the TR, all the better, but still, ultimately not all that important, UNLESS it covers the last of the final chapter, which all the new versions declare to have been added later-THAT would be sweet!

  20. Brethren, It an blessing as a Christian, in not being, "under the Law," as the Law is our schoolmaster to show us our need for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, Galatians 3:24. The Law was also given to condemn the unrighteous man, 1 Timothy 1:9-10, and not for the righteous man. Also, may we remind ourselves in this morally perverted nation, perverted Laodician churches, perverted bibles, that the Law is the most perfect set of moral standards the world has ever seen. Most people hate the Law because it condems the sins of their flesh and spirit. We need remember what Paul t

  22. Makes it easier to learn the lyrics that way, too! Right?? Before salvation, my wife was all about the Beatles; Jim Croce; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; etc. After salvation (1976) she wanted to know more hymns than secular songs than she had learned. We tease about how she doesn't need a songbook. She has well over 200 hymns (and about another 150 "spiritual songs" not in the hymnals) memorized ---- ALL the verses, not just the "Baptist" first and last or first, second and last!! (being the 3rd verse of a 4 verse hymn in a Baptist church is worse than being the Vice President from
