  2. I am hereby withdrawing from Online Baptist. I will not participate on a forum that allows members (such as kindofblue1977) to promote ungodly and wicked lifestyles. Yes, that is exactly what this member is doing. In the name of tolerance and love, he or she (I am not sure if this member is a man or woman) is promoting homosexualty and lesbianism. I have asked the moderator to delete this thread and have also asked him/her to ban kindofblue1977. Neither one has happened, so (with a heavy heart) I am hereby withdrawing my membership from this board. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  3. I find the original post to be vile, wicked, and disgusting. I have reported it to the moderators and I hope it will be deleted.
  4. I agree. Years ago I made the mistake of allowing one of our older sons to have a computer in his room with internet access without an online filter. As a result, he became addicted to pornography. I take full responsibility. I was a fool then but it won't ever happen again in our household. We brought the computers out into the open but it took me a few more years after that to finally wake up to the fact that we needed to have an online filter. And yes, we need to teach and guard our children and it must be done diligently. An online filter is like a lock on the front door of your house: it keeps the bad guys out and your family stays relatively safe. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  5. I am going to say something that may not be popular but it needs to be said. I used to give all kinds of excuses for not having an online filter. About 7 years ago I finally saw how stupid I was. As far as I am concerned if you don't use an online filter then you are inviting the devil and all his satanic forces into your home. I will even go so far as to say that you are a fool. If a certain website gets blocked, so what! There are always workarounds. No filter is perfect but it is better than nothing! Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  6. I am using K9 Web Protection right at this very moment. OBviously onlinebaptist.com is not blocked.
  7. Give K9 Web Protection a try. Even us well seasoned adults need protection from the filth of this world. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  8. An online filter would solve most of your prOBlems with porn. We used Covenant Eyes for many years but Covenant Eyes has 2 major flaws: it won't filter https (secure) sites and it won't block Google Images (which is filled with porn). A few months ago we switched to K9 Web Protection and it works great. Best of all, it is free for personal use! I would like to also add this to my reply: I don't believe that children should ever be allowed to access the internet without strict parental control and without an online filter. I also believe that we as adults not only need an online filter but we also need online accountability.
  9. My answer comes from the title of this site: Online Baptist An Independent Baptist Community Since 2002! It is stated to be "an independent Baptist community" so my question would be, why has it not remained an independent Baptist community? I just checked my profile. I have been a member of Online Baptist since March 2004 (10 years). In those 10 years I have only posted 444 times. Don't ask me why. I don't know.
  10. I appreciate the review. Sorry to here about your wife's struggles with CCM. We will pray that she gains the victory. I have been told privately by a friend of mine that I should watch my back over some of the things that I said in the book. It seems that I upset a few people because I named specific churches, specific people, and specific incidents. One of those churches is in the town that we live in and it seems that I caused quite a stir in that church. Oh well. That's life. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  11. You are quite welcome. I appreciate your comments.
  12. I am sorry to hear about what you went through. Thank you for your kind words.
  13. Dear Online Baptist family, I was wondering if there would be anyone that would be willing to do a book review for me? My book, The Day the Music Died, is available in PDF format free of charge (no kidding). The link is: www.pioneerbaptist.org/booklet/music.pdf I wrote this book about 3 1/2 years ago and have recently reformatted and expanded it. Some of you have already downloaded it from the Music forum. It is available to anyone who would like a copy. Bound printed copies are available for $15.00 each (with free shipping in the United States - no international orders please, sorry). Once you have read the book I would be very interested in hearing your feedback. You may send the PDF file to anyone that you think will read it. Thank you for your interest in this material. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  14. Returning to the original question that is the topic of this discussion: Can God use a man that drinks wine? To answer the question without skirting the issue at hand, my reply would be: no, he is not fit for the master's use. 2 Timothy 2:21 - "If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."

  16. The printed copies will be made from the updated PDF file. I am self-publishing this book using the comb binding method. The books will be printed as needed, so you will receive a copy of the final draft. I am using a Canon laser printer (model D320) to do the printing. The front cover picture will be printed using gray scale rather than color. It may not be professional but it is high quality printing and binding. Sincerely, Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  17. Dear Friends, I have completed the final proofreading of my book. The final draft is now available for downloading: http://www.pioneerbaptist.org/booklet/music.pdf I apologize for the wait and jumping the gun. I should have waited until the proofreading was done before I posted this download. I apologize once again for not making sure that everything is as it should be before making this publicly available. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  18. I wanted to make note that I have uploaded another corrected copy of my book. I have been re-reading it just to be sure everything is ok. I have added a few minor things here and there (they don't change the substance, only strengthen it). If you have already downloaded a copy then feel free to download it again. Just to let you know, I should be done with the final proofreading in a couple of days (that's my plan). I know, I should have thoroughly proofread it before I uploaded it, but oh well. I can't think of everything. Here is the link again: http://www.pioneerbaptist.org/booklet/music.pdf Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith brosmith@pioneerbaptist.org
  19. Please note: I made a minor change to one paragraph in the book. The grammatical construction could have given someone a false impression. I have updated the PDF file, so please download again for the corrected copy. As for the question, how I came up with the title? Yes, it is a takeoff of "American Pie" but only in the illustrative sense. I make note of it in the Foreword of the book. Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith
  20. It has been over 3 years since I originally wrote "The Day the Music Died". I have recently reformatted the book and added more material to it. I am offering it to everyone as a free download. It is in PDF format. If you would like a printed copy then please email me (the cost is $15.00). Link to free book: http://www.pioneerbaptist.org/booklet/music.pdf Sincerely, Bro Steve Smith
  21. Here is my analysis and reply: #1 - Your original post is pompous and arrogant. #2 - We don't drink nor do we dance nor do we tempt others to drink or dance. #3 - Knowing that you do drink and you do dance, we would not invite you to our daughter's wedding. #4 - It would be better if you pursued personal holiness in your life rather than being so obnoxious.
  22. I need clarification. The title suggests that you drink wine on a regular basis. So please clarify. Are you a drinker of wine on a regular basis? Or are you an occasional drinker of wine? Or are you a former drinker of wine (meaning that you no longer drink wine)?
  23. How do you know whether or not you are saved? 1. The witness of the Holy Spirit Romans 8:16 2. The presence of the Holy Spirit Romans 8:9 3. The witness of the word of God 1 John 5:9 4. The witness of others 1 John 1:7, 5:8,9 5. The witness within ourselves 1 John 5:10 6. The witness of our own conscience. Romans 2:15 What are these witnesses telling you? 1 John 5:11-13, "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." I believe that true salvation brings assurance with it. Nobody is able to give anybody assurance of their salvation. Being tormented with doubts is a very good indication that the person was never saved in the first place. Or maybe the person is just backslidden. Hebrews 6:1 - "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,"
