    Biblical Jewish Dancing

    Glad to see you take moderator warnings so seriously. The offending word was in your Introduction Thread, comment 441120. There's another one in Mathematical Timeline, 441022. Speaking of which... you have now taken the Lord's Name itself in vain through use of a euphemism. If you'd like to know where it is, it's in your last post on this thread. Perhaps it's time for a cooling off period. Not so much for the language, but because of your general argumentative attitude. This last post of yours was not for 'clarification' purposes, it was to mock (whewee) and complain about a moderator warning. The applicable rule falls under 'be nice to the moderators' - as in, respect their decisions.

    This warning was not just for this post on dancing, it was for a continuing agenda of false teaching and your being here to cause trouble. But here are some rules you have trampled: We will not allow the following c) Members that come just to argue doctrine instead of fellowship. Feel free to quote the Bible, if you do we ask that you use the KJV. This is done to avoid confusion. The Administrators and Moderators of this site believe that the KJV is Gods preserved Word for the English speaking people, and we ask that you respect that and use the KJV when quoting scripture. Be nice to the Moderators c) We have the right to delete any post or ban any member who we feel is inappropriate for these boards without notice. d) The mods have the right to lock any topic that they feel is not appropriate for this board. We are not a debating site like some boards, but rather a discussion board.

    This morning a couple JW ladies stopped by our house while my wife was at home. Of course, they immediately wanted to talk about end times (their "go-to" topic). My wife asked a question of them, "How would you describe your relationship with God?" The speaker was flummoxed, and the 2nd lady had a stricken look on her face. My wife just waited in silence. After a long, uncomfortable silence, the speaker turned to the 2nd lady and looked at her for help. The 2nd lady said, "Um, I guess I would say, 'Necessary'?" The first lady looked back at my wife and simply shrugged, but said nothing. My wife said, "You, know, I agree that it is necessary to have a relationship with God for the sake of your soul's eternity, but I think I would choose a different word... I think I would say, 'Intimate'." She then briefly gave her testimony, focusing on the personal relationship she enjoys with God through salvation in Jesus Christ. She then asked if she could show them from the Bible how they could have a close, personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. At that point, the 2nd person said, "Well, it's obvious that we are not going to agree on a lot of things, so I think we won't take up any more of your time. But I do have one question, What church do you go to?" My wife told her the name of our church, to which the lady said, "I knew you were a Baptist! The only people who seem to know what they believe and who talk like you do about a relationship with God are Baptists. But, honestly, most of them aren't as kind as you."

    Sigh....I don't get to talk to JW's anymore. The elders of their church have banned them from knocking on my door anymore after I led two of their own to the Lord.

    Contrary to the falsehood being spread, the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine was not "cooked-up" by Darby in 1830. The early church fathers followed the Apostle Paul's teaching. When Christianity was adopted as the State Religion, such ideas were dismissed as they conflicted with the absolute authority of the Roman Emperor and were considered to be the cause of "discord" among the citizens of the Roman Empire, so Amillennialsim and "spiritualization" of Scripture were "cooked-up" for the Catholic Church and then adopted by the Protestant "Reformers". Papias (60-130) Clement of Rome (90-100) The Sherpherd of Hermas (96-150) Ignatius of Antioch (98-117) Barnabas (100) The Didache (100-160) Justin Martyr (110-165) The Epistle of Barnabas (117-138) Irenaeus (120-202) Tertullian (145-220) Hippolytus (185-236) Cyprian (200-250) Lactantius (260-330) http://www.essentialchristianity.com/pages.asp?pageid=21918
