    My daughter to PNG

    Well, late last week they were able to fly up to the airstrip. First try on Friday was no good - cloud everywhere (Normal for PNG) and so the plane would not have been able to find the airstrip. They didn't even try. Saturday, they gave it a go, and the pilot said in 21 years of flying PNG he had NEVER seen it that clear.... Sunday, she was in Church at Kotidanga. She said the service was wonderful and she was able to follow the general line of the message - understood enough of the language to "sort of follow it". This week she ahs been observing clinic, in the mornings and hav

  6. The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort. He develops toward himself a kindly sense of humor and learns to say, ’Oh, so you have been overlooked? They have placed someone else before you? They have whispered that you are pretty small stuff after all? And now you feel hurt because the world is saying about you the very things you have been saying about yourself? Only yesterday you were telling God that you were nothing, a mere worm of the dust. Where is your consistency? Come on, humble yourself, and c

    Joseph and his Jewish Dreams

    Brethren, I uploaded the "CC" or, "Closed Captioning," or "Subtitles," (some folks call the written text different words), onto the Genesis 37:1-11, "Joseph and his Jewish Dreams," video. I do hope that "CC," or subtitles, are a help to those who cannot hear properly or cannot fully understand my words. Alan

  11. As Alan posted, they are here: Please go to the link and read the rules - it's good for all members to know them. It really does not matter if you see a difference in the wording of two different versions, as you mentioned to Alan. Nor does it matter if Jesus spoke Old English (which all of us know He did not) or Hebrew, Latin, Greek, or Russian. The fact is that OB is a KJV site. Refrain from using other versions. Thank you.

    "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all." Many people are given originality for this quote, but I first heard it from my mother.

    Sure, I don't, I've seen it at work in many Catholic friends I've had over the years. I'm sorry if it sounded that I thought Martin Luther had...would or should.

    "So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained." Robert E. Lee

    I believe Luther considered himself Catholic til the day he died. He did retain some papist dogma but regardless, he did some great things and was a beacon of light in a dark church. After 1000 years of oppression under the iron fist of the Roman Church you can't expect people to shake off all the heresies over night. He was a great man in his day but I'd be leary of some of his theology.

    Quotations Anyone?

    I read a quote similar to this somewhere recently but can't recall where and it's really bugging me. "Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask; by whom has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?" "The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    My daughter to PNG

    My daughter, Hannah-Rose is a registered nurse. She has left Perth this afternoon to fly to Brisbane and then on to Port Morseby, Papua New Guinea. She will be serving at Kunai health clinic. The clinic is an independent baptist missionary run clinic with the purpose of reaching the people of the Kotidanga region and beyond for the Lord. I would appreciate prayer for her travel and for her service for the Lord into the future. Regards, DaveW

    Mark 16:9

    No, it also has to do with what day you worship the Lord. Go ahead and worship Jesus Christ on Saturday if that's your preference. But, I think we could agree we need to worship Jesus Christ daily. This has gone far beyond any value... see 2 Timothy 2:16.

    "Good" Friday?

    Well, as for the difference between the third day, and after the third day, that is a difference that I suppose ew may not understand this side of heaven. It may be that He rose, or came alive, ON the third day, but did not rise, or leave the tomb, until AFTER the third day. A Wednesday crucifixion would not have Him in the tomb 3-1/2 days and nights, because the time of His death isn't the same as the time in the tomb, which is what the timing is set to. 3 days, three nights in the heart of the earth, or the tomb. That being the case. then He was only in the tomb for 3 days, and maybe a
