  1. Yes, the sooner the better from my perspective.
  2. Exodus 18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.
  3. If any of us were born able not to sin then the law would have been enough and there would have been no need of a Redeemer.
  4. This reminds me of those nature vs nurture battles in university. It never ceased to amaze me how many professors would claim babies are born as a beautiful, pure, blank slate of goodness and it was only prejudiced influence and teaching of parents and others which corrupted the innocent child...which presumably, if the baby could care for itself, would grow up to be a perfect, flawless adult without outside influence. No amount of evidence to the contrary could ever change their position or admit the other position might have some valid points. Scripture is clear we are born sinners
  5. I do find it interesting that when it comes to Christianity they claim the older texts have to be viewed as the most accurate and most reliable, yet for other works these days it's often pointed out early printings often have errors that were corrected in later printings. An annoying factor is those people, especially prevalent online, who love to post pithy statements claiming the KJB is full of errors, that there are thousands of ancient copies of the Bible and none of them agree with one another, that Christianity has no factual basis. Then people flood in to "like" or post supporting
  6. Schools and the medical profession are heavily involved in promoting and using these sort of things. Schools and doctors "prescribe" such things as a means of healing, well-being, mental clarity, self-realization, overall health and wellness. Christian prayer and searching the Scriptures is ignored or outright discouraged. Only "mystical" things such as contemplative meditation, yoga, breathing therapy, or even praying or communing with false gods, "mother nature", or "the universe" are deemed beneficial. The devil is busy in all this and he has millions of servants doing his work fo
  7. Exodus 18:5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God:
  8. Thank you Alan, I understand your reasoning for this. If, at some point in the future, you do decide to get into that I will still be interested.
  9. Exodus 18:3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
  10. I'm not arguing we will go through some or all of the 7 years, but I do want to point out I've heard some Baptist pastors say in the event we do go through some portion (even some pre-trib pastors preach that things may be terrible right before the rapture or some aspect of the 7 years is in progress or beginning right before the rapture) of the 7 years they believe it will be similar to how the Hebrews were present during the plagues on Egypt but protected from them (such as when all of Egypt was totally dark but the Hebrews had light). There are also some who predict or expect things to
  11. I'm still pressing on toward the prize!
  12. I use my Kindle reader a lot but I don't use the Kindle tablet much.
  13. They aren't as messy are they?
  14. Indeed this is how I've heard the subject preached upon by every Baptist pastor I've heard preach on the matter.
  15. Exodus 18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the Lord had brought Israel out of Egypt;
  16. Thank you, I understand the point you are getting at.
