    I have never understood why tobacco is viewed in the same vain as things like fornication or drunkenness and what not. 

    Not that I think smoking is really the best thing for people.

    I don't understand why it's acceptable for someone to be 300 pounds and obese and no one says anything, but if someone smokes they are treated as if they are a fornicator. 

    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.

    It could be Steven Anderson who first interpreted Jonah 3: 10 that repentance of sin is a work.  

    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.

      I get a flu vaccination every year. I have no kind words for those who reject vaccinations for "religious reasons", as their "reason" is false. After all, JESUS performed many cures by His power, & likely kept the disciples healthy by His power as well, a virtual vaccination.

    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.

    I'm not sure if you will find a correct anwser here, for many don't even wear mask. I do believe those that are at risk, should not attend church services. Some members saying, I'm sorry you caught COVID after the fact, will not help you or me.

    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.

       My wife & I are at high risk for covid, due to age & medical conditions, & we have decided that attending church indoors while unvaccinated is DARING (tempting) GOD to protect us from covid, that it would be deliberately putting ourselves in danger. There's plenty of preaching & Bible study on TV & local radio, so it's not as if we are forsaking our gathering with other believers. The danger is real, all politicizing aside.

      Our pastor said he's considering foregoing live services & posting sermons twice weekly on the net til the pandemic's over, as most of our members have computers & internet service.

     

    What are YOUR thoughts ?

    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.

    It was a simply question from the advice. Is it better to be 6 feet apart or 6 feet under. Seems a simply question to me.

    Frankly, I would rather be 6, 12, 18 feet apart than 6 feet under. 

    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.

    Your reply is totally off the topic. 

    Would you rather be 6 feet apart or 6 feet under?

    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?

    Good morning, Pastor Matt,

    Yes, it is not very difficult to work it out, though, is it?

    Anyone and everyone who do what i said they do.

    It was such a general and vague comment directed at someone that wasn't mentioned that I had a hard time understanding who you were talking to or about. If you were talking about folks on YouTube then posting it on here is a waste of time because they will not see it. I suggest you go directly to the pastor/preacher on YouTube and have a conversation with them individually about your concerns.

    Greetings,

    i know i am new, but maybe that's a good thing, because i see things that i did not expect and long timers may have gotten used to them so they ignore or simply may not notice them, i do not mean to hurt anyone, but it hurts a lot, so i'm going to say it.

    Why do you go and start and give a sermon or lecture on the Holy Bible when you are not prepared well enough on the topic you have decided to talk about?

    Why do you belittle the Word of God by thinking whatnot and imagining that all will be fine?

    Why do you take the Word of God for granted?

    i am an English language teacher and no matter what i want to teach, i need to prepare myself before i go to my class, and that's everyday English, not the Word of God!

    How much more do you, dear pastors and preachers, need to study and prepare before you go on the stage, or wherever you preach, and hopefully preach the Word?

    i humbly suggest if you are too busy with your life and worldly matters, leave the preaching and let others who are truly devoted to the Lord do the Lord's business and you get straight to yours.

    May the Lord forgive me if i have offended anyone,

    May the Lord bless your hearts,

    Totoo

    May I ask who you are specifically talking to?
