  1. Unfortunately, some churches do display this kind of behavior. Like Pastor Markle said, put your trust in God alone and not people. May I ask what hypocrites in the church have to do with your individual relationship with God? Your faith should be in God, not a pastor or people

  2. Anyone else ever notice the word "Sovereign" isn't in scripture? Yet the word is bandied about like crazy by Calvinists.

  4. Sure. For instance, scripture tells us God cannot sin-therefore I limit God on His inability to sin. Since he is, indeed, the very fount and definition of "Good", He could not sin. God has said, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee", therefore I limit God in ever being able to take my salvation away, because to do so would be to forsake and leave me. Therefore He is limited by His own word. As for the other, in obligation, last Sunday I preached that many believers have been taught that if we have enough faith, and ask earnestly enough, God will heal our bodies, however, nowher

  5. Rock, country, rap, (and you could probably add any or most types of mainstream music) etc. is the music of this world, appeals to the flesh, has an ungodly origin and beat - and ccm that follows it is just disguised and doesn’t magically become blessed of the Lord because you added Christian lyrics to it. One of the things that really struck me when studying out the issue of ccm about 22-23 years ago was: if the beat/type of music does not matter spiritually, how come every single ccm artist/group that I have ever heard of/studied out has obvious compromise in their lives? Many are covered wi

    My daughter to PNG

    Long story short - the PNG government has changed the visa requirements for those at the clinic, and it has caused some problems. As a result it is difficult for new staff to get in, and some have had to leave. This all means that Hannah-Rose is now basically running the clinic. She is doing fine in most respects, misses her family and home church, but loves the work, the church there in Kotidanga, and loves the people she is working with and for.

  10. Hi, My name is Miranda and I want to tell you a story that ended bad for a little girl at a church. The girl's parents were members of a Baptist church for over 10 years and the little girl was baptized there. The church's school hired a casting company to pick the kids for the production of Annie. The little girl didn't attend their school, but was a member of the church and homeschooled which qualified her. She was so excited and she auditioned knowing that since she didn't attend the school, she might get picked for an extra which was ok with her. She sang and danced and got casted as

    This vaccine push is so messed up. I was sick the last week (didn't get tested, but probably Covid), so now I have some nice, natural antibodies to protect me next time.

    https://www.salk.edu/news-release/the-novel-coronavirus-spike-protein-plays-additional-key-role-in-illness/ After telling us that the "spike protein" of Covid is harmless now they are saying it is harmful. The vaccine is the code that creates this spike in your body. I've also read where two top molecular biologists, a Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, who said the vaccine will require endless boosters or you will get sick and a Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay who said the vaccine will cause "immune escape" where our immune system will fail to recognize the virus anymore. Of course, you will be ban

    Fauci: The Mad Man

    This is why the government will not make abortion illegal. It's a way for them to be able to experiment on humans in the name of science. They'll call it a fetus, but do experiments on it like its a human body.

  17. Yet the English word "sovereign" simply means "1. above or superior to all others; chief; greatest; supreme: 2. supreme in power, rank, or authority: 3. of or holding the position of ruler; royal; reigning." Certainly that definition DOES apply to the Lord our God, the MOST HIGH God, the Ruler of heaven and earth. Furthermore, consider that we are quite comfortable using the term "trinity" although it is not specifically found in the King James translation, as well as other terms, such as "rapture," etc. If a term is a legitimate doctrinal term, used in accord with Biblical doctrine and

  18. I get that and I respect your conviction in this area. Don't ever change if that is how God is leading you. I have come to my own personal conviction because I don't know the personal lives and beliefs of all the hymns writers in our hymnal. I'm blessed because my daughters writes a lot of there own songs and music that we use. We just released our first one on Apple Music, YouTube Music, Spotify and more. If the lyrics are doctrinally correct and falls into the Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs categories, then we will use it just like in the hymnal. I will say this, with all the modern

  19. Different indeed. "Most Americans wouldn’t know how to survive being hindered by illness or disability." This story reminds me of Joni Eareckson Tada. Have you ever heard story of Joni's life or heard her sing, Alone Yet Not Alone? You know her husband had to help her breath so that she could sing that song. There are two ways to come out of disability, either bitterness or beauty. Many Americans are depending on someone other than Jesus Christ.

    Never limit God

    I only limit God where He has limited Himself, and never obligate God, save where He has obligated Himself.

  21. This church should have never been involved in a secular mess like doing a production of Annie. I seriously doubt this was an Independent Fundamental Baptist church. Why are you here, to accuse? Get into a godly church that preaches the word of God faithfully, stays out of foolish things like school plays, and just serve God.

  23. Music is one area that is really sensitive to a lot of people. I don't come to church to be entertained or to feel good, I come to hear from God, so I want the music to reflect that. We mostly sing hymns and Spiritual songs, but we do take some CCM music with good lyrics and we will calm down the tempo and/or rewrite the music so it will not sound worldly. I know some people are against that, but I need to follow the Lord's leading in our church. We try to have lively music, but done properly and in order. There is a clear distinction between the worlds music and what we use. I guess it c

  24. I have learned over the years to NEVER limit God. I was reminded of His providence yesterday, though I had not even prayed for it. I should have, but being a bit sidetracked for the day by other concerns, I was letting what certain groups of people affect what I thought would happen. After speaking with my physicians office, the Lord provided the need though I hadn't even asked him about it. I'm supposed to have decadron injections in my left ear next Monday, and the following two Mondays for vertigo attacks and tinnitus caused by bilateral Meniere's disease. I couldn't afford to pay for the c

  25. I'm glad I read some of this thread, PastorMatt. I usually answer with Biblicist myself. I don't reveal whether or not I agree with TULIP, etc. It's irrelevant what I as a person think. The only thing that matters is what the Bible teaches, and though both "sides" can back up their stances with Scripture, they don't settle the question! I guess that's why God only reveals what we truly need to know about living the Christian life!

  27. I find it alarming that too many people think that there are only two choices here. Neither Calvinism or Arminianism lines up with Scripture.

  28. I would repeat my previous answer. I am a Biblicist. Neither John Calvin, nor Jacob Arminius, were correct in there writings. And, neither one is a standard for doctrine. If the person is seeking a good answer, and he is a just man, than your answer will help him in his quest for the truth. Proverbs 9:9 "Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning." If he is a fool, and just looking for an argument, then don't waste your time.
