  1. Thank you so much for the information. We'll be praying for you and all these churches in Canada. I cant imagine what it is like. So sad to see this stuff take place all over the world. Protesting in large groups acceptable...church meeting in large groups... illegal.
  2. All throughout the news you hear things about people being homophobic and so forth. Of course the term homophobic seems to have changed definitions from the meaning "having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against gay people" to disagreeing with the gay lifestyle. Anyway, this topic is not about that, but the term Christophobic. Would that mean someone who is against Christians mean they are Christophobic? It seems that now every group is protected except Christians. I heard the term Christophobic the other day and it got me thinking. Anyone else hear this term before?
  3. Canadian Health officials closed down a Canadian Church for repeated Covid Violations. According to the reporter in the link below, there were 100 complaints about Grace Life Church resulting in 18 inspections. If any of our Canadian friends has any other information, please let us know. The church released a public statement on their website https://gracelife.ca/ https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2021/april/canadian-church-gracelife-alberta-closed-barricade-covid.html
  4. Thank you @John Young I'll watch those videos tonight.
  5. I am posting this with permission from the family. One of our members @Alan has gone on to be with the Lord last week. Alan was a great contributor here, and was a blessing and encouragement to many on Online Baptist. Alan will truly be missed on this earth, but he is now with our creator. Please keep the family in your prayers during this time as there are details that need to be worked out. Please feel free to comment below on how Alan was an encouragement and/or blessing to you.
  6. That's ungodly. I have my choice between 3 to go to
  7. Do they have the security walls around Capital in the virtual tours? I want my tour to be realistic. lol
  8. Anyone know where I can watch these?
  9. Great I look forward to seeing your new website. I enjoy looking at church websites to see what it on them. I can see where the name of church can be a detriment to someone on deputation from your church. Most of the missionaries that come through here I already know their home church.
  10. The doctrine is more important than the name, so I'm glad that you are changing the name to reflect your position.
  11. So sad for what is taking place there. So people of Myanmar is in my prayers.
  12. While I agree with your statement, I must first find out why a person is obese, is it from gluttony or a medical condition. I'm pretty sure gluttony is what you were referring to in which I agree. As part of my message a few weeks back I talked about gluttony, a few comments came from the crowd that said, "Oh, boy...here we go". It's a sin in the Bible, I'll preach it just as hard as other sins.
  13. Trish and I will be praying for your family. Also, praising the Lord for your Uncles salvation.
  14. There has been a few things that I've heard Steven Anderson preach that I never heard before. He seems to receive special Biblical Interpretation from God, which means the Bible is of a private interpretation.
  15. Just like the disciples, I get the virtual vaccination by Jesus too. In all seriousness, I'm not against Vaccines. I'm a firm believer in doing your research before you decide to take a certain vaccine or not.
  16. Every year for the past 4 years i'm hospitalized for a week with the flu, How come nobody ever told me they were sorry for not wearing a mask around me? When/if Covid is over, will you stop earing a mask in public? Virus are deadly every year to certain people, so you must publicly wear a mask the rest of your life to protect those folks.
  17. Here is what I tell my members. Pray about it and do what God tells you to do. If God is telling you to stay home, you better stay home and watch the services online. If God is telling you to go, then you better go. I don't believe there is a one answer solution that fits everyone.
  18. So far 2020 has been one of the best years for my family and our church. Hopefully 2021 is just as good, because God is good.
  19. I don't see how 6' or 18' makes a difference. Does covid measure distance to find those to infect? I thought it was an airborne virus which means you can't walk in the same are area someone else did that was infected.
  20. I don't see his reply as off topic. Anyways, I guess with the situation that you are mentioning that no-one should leave the house ever since here is so much more danger out of the house than in it Then again lots of people die in their own house... what am I to do make sure I don't die?
