  1. Your view of this makes me sad. The God of Scripture is active in our lives today as He was yesterday and will be tomorrow.
  2. I don't think I've ever seen a .ru extension. What does that represent or stand for? Thank you, good to know. In my case, I did run a virus scan after those happened but didn't have malware scan at the time.
  3. I can't speak for what happens in your circle but I know several people who were healed after being prayed over. Real, actual verifiable healing which the doctors attested to. There was a Baptist missionary in China who, after years of failing to be able to learn even the rudiments of the language, one began preaching to a few people who knew some English when suddenly all the Chinese present began listening intently. Some called for others to join until eventually a crowd heard Chinese coming from this Baptist missionary who was preaching in English. Multiple sources, involving multiple missionaries and other Christians, have reported on the large number of Muslims overseas who have had very specific dreams which caused them to seek out these Christian to learn of Christ. None of these things "just happened", God clearly was involved. There are countless other testimonies of such, and much more, by reliable Christians, not the emotionalist Charismatic fringe.
  4. It said it removed them all. I had a couple or few, don't recall just how many, times when suddenly new windows started opening up rapidly and I couldn't close them faster than they would open new ones. I had to shut the computer off to stop it. Perhaps during one or more of those instances many nasty things jumped on board. I don't know. Yes, I really thought over 800 hits was extremely high. I was concerned when it got to double digits! I suppose being rid of whatever they were couldn't hurt! ;-)
  5. Did you know we have not only been really hot but also really dry?
  6. Ok, I admit it, I'm not looking forward to the extreme heat and humidity they say will hit us today.
  7. Those people who are in a big hurry speeding down the road and they come up fast on your bumper and stay there as if that will make me drive fast just for them.
  8. Christ is faithful to His word regardless of the beliefs or actions of His followers or those of the unsaved. Those verses say nothing about a born again believer becoming lost again or of a born again believer falling away to a point where they don't qualify for rapture.
  9. I downloaded the one you posted above. It took over half an hour to run. Earlier this year I ran into problems with this computer and both times the only way I could get it going good again was to take it back to an earlier date and restart from there.
  10. Exodus 19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.
  11. I ran the malware program and it indicated over 800 possible problems. This system is still on Windows 7 and is unable to upload Windows 10.
  12. Has there been a clear defining here of just what the "falling away" is actually referring to? How does this compare to previous times of falling away? We know there are, and always have been, many "in the faith" who were not born again Christians. Today, over 70% of Americans claim to be Christian but we know while even many of these who may appear to be "in the faith" they are nothing more than secular or cultural Christians, not actual born again Christians. When these "fall away", it's not believers falling away, it's the lost who may have been sitting in the same pew with us since childhood.
  13. You often put forth this view but countless Christians around the world, both past and present, have witnessed otherwise. From individual Christians to missionaries and others there are credible testimonies of the miraculous. These aren't confined to Charismatics or Pentecostals, but include numerous Baptists and others as well. By your reckoning, what would be the purpose of prayer if there were no chance of God working some form of "miracle" in order to fulfill certain prayer requests? Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever, His power working in this world is still present.
  14. Many people think Pope Francis is the Antichrist, or at least the false prophet. Videos like this one don't do him any favors. Although no reasonable person would argue against living in peace in a world of conflicting religions, the pontiff takes this ideal to a new extreme in a video message illustrating his heartfelt prayer request. "Most of the planet's inhabitants declare themselves believers. This should lead to a dialogue among religions," he said in Italian. "We should not stop praying for it and collaborating with those who think differently." Of course, dialogue is one thing. Compromising the tenets of Christianity is altogether different. The video then shows quick shots of people stating their religious convictions. A lama declares, "I have confidence in Buddha." A rabbi confesses, "I believe in God." A Catholic priest declares, "I believe in Jesus Christ." An Islamic leader shares, "I believe in God, Allah." Notably, no evangelicals or Pentecostals were in the mix. Disturbing video footage shows the pope receiving a demonic statue from a Buddhist and bending down to pray according to Muslim tradition. "Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways," he says. "In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty we have for all: We are all children of God." Here's the problem: You can seek God in many ways, but there's only one way to the Father. There is only one way to meet God, and His name is Jesus Christ. To even hint at anything else causes confusion at best and deceives many at worst.

  15. I don't see any indication that when Christ calls His people up He will only be calling some while leaving others behind because they weren't good enough. From your postings you seem to have an over-focus upon the matter of speaking in tongues which you stretch into other areas affecting your view of the meaning of various verses. In John 10:14-16 Jesus is referring to Gentiles, who are not of the fold of the Jews, which He will bring in and there will be one fold, Jews and Gentiles alike forming that one fold.
  16. I wish I could remember how I finally found some good music on Pandora. A couple years ago I tried so many different search terms and finally one of them provided good music. The only thing I remember is the music being played under the search term wasn't what I would have expected. I also recall trying to find some old style Southern Gospel on there and I finally found it under some search term other than Southern Gospel. It's a shame it's so difficult to find music outside the "mainstream" of music.
  17. Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
