  1. Exodus 16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
  2. Do you choose your topic or someone else? Thank you for keeping us updated.
  3. Friday Church News Notes May 27, 2016, Volume 17, Issue 22 PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE DOCTRINE IN DECLINE (Friday Church News Notes, May 27, 2016, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - According to a new survey, only 28% of preachers 45 years old and younger hold to a Pre-tribulation Rapture. This compares to 36% of preachers overall. The survey of 1,000 pastors was done by Lifeway Research. Less than half believe the Antichrist is a literal figure who will arise in the future. Of Baptist pastors, 75% believe in a literal Antichrist; of Lutherans 29%, of Methodists 28%
  4. My wife made bacon cheeseburgers and waffle fries. Mmmmmmmmmmm
  5. In my experience this is little done by Christian parents and those few Christian parents who do attempt such are often looked down upon, even attacked, often by their own family and other Christians. On one hand we have God First. Seek ye first the kingdom of God: learn and obey what God says. On the other hand we have the "chase after worldly things first and fit God in sometimes when convenient". Unfortunately, the second most often is the choice of Christian parents. Time and again Christian parents say they must have their children in public schools so they can play sp
  6. This is why so many churches don't solely rely upon doing as the Word says and trusting God with the outcome. Doing so puts it all in God's hands and in His timing, which often isn't the same as our time schedule. Instead, churches turn to gimmicks, specials, entertainment, forming special interest groups (such as a quilters group, divorced group, bargain hunters group, genealogy group) and various other extra-biblical means to draw a crowd. A local church recently sent out a mass mailing, put up a large sign by their church, advertising an upcoming special "love" event. They ask fol
  7. Exodus 16:29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
  8. Yes, Deuteronomy is a good one. In my night reading I just finished Philippians and will begin Colossians tonight.
  9. Indeed we read of the call to surrender all to Christ, Christ Himself telling us we should count the cost, and we read of the many who came to Christ and actually gave up all to follow Christ or were wiling to but commanded of the Lord to another area. While salvation on ones deathbed (as it were) is possible, this seems to be rare. How often does the dying one have someone present to rightly present the Gospel before the die? Even if they heard the Gospel many times in their life, and rejected it, how many will suddenly have a soft heart and rightly call out to the Lord. Each time a
  10. Exodus 16:27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
  11. I've reached the psalms in my morning Bible reading. I love reading the psalms.
  12. Exodus 16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the Lord: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
  13. Yep, my patience runs out in some areas quicker than others.
  14. This reminds me of some people who are more concerned with trying to get a satisfying answer to their question, "will my pets be in heaven" than they are in whether their neighbors or other lost folks know the way to heaven.
  15. I lose interest in games with long delays. How do some people sit through a two hour rain delay to watch a three hour baseball game?
  16. It's hard to try and post much in the fun and games forum when each post takes at least 15-20 seconds to even go through. Currently, posting in the other forms is taking about 5 seconds to go through.
  17. Exodus 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
  18. I understand the beginning of this post, there are many duplicitous actions taken by the government, regardless of who is in power, which oftentimes seems totally contrary to what might appear reasonable. In some cases, the main or even only real solution to "why" is that most of the world is lost and serves the devil (even if unknowingly). World War Two could have rather easily been avoided, yet due to much bungling and lack of future considerations, the world was plunged into a war which continues to reverberate around the world. In the midst of the war many more unwise, unethical and n
  19. Exodus 16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
  20. Ok, I admit it, this sort of homework wouldn't be to my liking!
  21. Do I think it does what?
