  1. I understand. It's not something that I would have done early on, but I don't see a scriptural reason not to so I would do it now
  2. Are you open to a woman leading the congregational singing. We were in a similar church and the pastors wife led music until someone could be trained
  3. Though I have no issue with a church having a midweek or Sunday night service. The number of times a church meets is up to the church. The early church met daily, not just on Sunday. However, there is no mandate in scripture other than Sunday. With that said, we are definitely in a time where the church is dying, pastors treat the ministry as a job and the people want to be entertained. There are over 80 Independent Baptist churches in a 30 minute radius of my home and none are worth attending. I lived an hour away previously and there were over 100 churches and I only found 1 that preached the Word. We are definitively in the Laodecian Period, the false Church that God is going to spew out of his mouth
  4. Since clothes are dependent on culture. so to an extent is modesty. With that said. we are living in a very immodest world
  5. These numbers were exactly right in the two churches that I pastored. I spoke with individuals who only came on Sunday (morning and night). Interesting responses. One person said that they didn't come on Wednesday because there was no Biblical mandate to go to church midweek. They understood the importance of the Lord's day Biblically.
  6. Absolutely not. Only if they take the mark of the beast at the midpoint of the Tribulation will God send the strong dilusion
  7. The part that you can't be saved after the rapture if you rejected salvation prior to the rapture.
  8. Jerry, Your position is based on a false interpretation of 2 Thessalonians. The passage is clearly dealing with the midpoint of the Tribulation and those who have taken the mark of the beast. Those who take the mark. God will send a strong delusion and they will not be able to be saved. Unfortunately many want to scare people into getting saved.
  9. I would agree there is very little out there. The Bill Rice Ranch has some material for ladies that is really good, though I doubt there is a video.
  10. We had a library at the 2nd church I pastored. We didn't keep track of who took what. It was completely on the honor system. I scoured thrift stores and found many conservative books for $1/book. We had a budgeted line item for books, but rarely used it all. I got an entire series of John R. Rice's books for $10.
  11. I believe in the Biblical definition of Preservation. God has preserved his word from generation to generation. Currently, the KJV is the only translation that follows the doctrine of preservation and therefore is the best translation for English Speaking individuals. When I hold my KJV, I can clearly say that I am holding the Preserved Word of God. Now with that said, I believe that one day we may see a modern translation that follows the same process that the translators in 1611 did and we could hold that up and also say it is the Preserved Word of God. I reject the modern translation because they do not follow the doctrine of preservation and therefore have many errors.
  12. There have been many times in my life that I was under conviction and simply told God no. Our human nature does not want to submit to God for anything which is why it is difficult for people, even under conviction, to get saved. We are taught today to hold ourselves in high esteem when God tells us to humble ourselves. I have found that the more humble I am, the easier it is to follow God. Unfortunately, I fail often in this area.
  13. Jordan, Your interpretation goes contrary to Jesus, therefore is wrong. I will find some time this week to go through 1 Cor. 7. Just been busy.
  14. Some great questions 1. Couple living in a common law marriage - They are married already. Doing vows is a formality. 2. Couple living together, but not married - This one is tough because I am sure they are sleeping together. I would not marry these individuals. I would encourage them to separate until their former spouses have passed. 3. Woman at the well - She was married to 5 and the one she was currently with was an adulterous affair. Jesus was calling her out on it. He was not telling her to go and get married to the guy she was currently with.
  15. Yes, it is that cut and dry. However, as mentioned, God can and wants to use divorced people. They just can't be a pastor or deacon. The Word of God has to be taken literally and marriage is sacred and dealt with from Genesis to the New Testament and it is always the same. When we want to take one passage and say that this is for NT Christians and then ignore the Gospels or the Old Testament, we come up with doctrines that make us feel better and excuse our sin.
