    I guess I read it differently than you fellows did. I didn't read it as an indictment of the current church in Hammond (which I believe has gotten much better under Bro. Wilkerson). Rather, the indictment was the philosophy and methodology that Hyles used and pushed.

    Thank you for your well thought out response, and you did not come off as argumentative. Jack Hyles passed away  in 2001, and while the ideology is still out there, it's nowhere where it used to be. I don't know if I would label it Hylesism, but just rather easy believism. That ideology is not just limited to one school/pastor. 

  2. I did not go to Bible college at Hyles, nor have I ever been part of First Baptist Church. However,  I am extremely familiar with the church, college, and have talked to and prayed with Pastor Wilkerson in person this summer.

    This is my opinion. There has been a shift over the last few years since Wilkerson took over as pastor. Many of the things this article mentions was when Schapp was pastor. I personally know and fellowship with around 15-20 Hyles pastors in the New England area and I don't see what this article is mentioning anymore. If you were to ask me 5 years ago, I would have agreed with this article 100%, but praise the Lord I've noticed a deeper root in evangelism. 

  3. I don't use iPhones, but a quick web search says this is how. 

    How to Put Safari Icons on Your Home Screen

    1. Open Safari and go to a website you visit frequently.
    2. Tap the Share icon at the bottom of the screen. It resembles a box with an upward-pointing arrow.
    3. Scroll across the bottom row of icons in the Sharing window and tap Add to Home Screen.
    4. Next to the icon that will represent this website is a name field. Accept the suggested name or enter a different one.
    5. Tap Add at the top of the screen to save the new icon to the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch Home screen.

    I would have to say no. In Genesis 2:7 we see that God breathed life into man. Life comes from God. It's not up to the creation to decide to end what the Creator began. JMO

    I've had family and friends who were terminal, so I have experienced the pain and grief of watching them suffer. But, again, it is not up to the created being to mess with the Creator's timing. 


    I do agree with you on this topic. We seem to make too many decisions based upon emotion rather than what is biblically correct.

    Hmmm? :think_smiley_50:

    $25.5 million dollars.  Wow!!!:4_6_100:

    Well Matt, as I don't think somebody will ever send me $25 billion dollars, I think I will send a request.

    In my request I think the person will need to send me $25.00 in order for me to pay for the International Money Transfer.

    So, as soon as I receive the $25.00 I will reply and wait for the full details.

    I'm waiting. :smilie_frech_015:

    Good point. I'll need the $25 million in order to pay for the money transfer. I promise I'll pay the $25 back after I get the $25 million.
