  1. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Sadly, your Hindu friend is still lost and needs to get saved. He merely took on Christ as his perceived fire insurance from Hell, but never repented nor did he ever renounce his idols and multitude of Hindu gods.
  2. These problems are typical with any software (on any operating system) where you are in a perpetual state of beta. MacSword and Adium are always in a state of development and is a work-in-progress. That also means bugs are still there and are constantly being weeded out.
  3. Actually I don't get your point at all - are you saying that getting these updates is a bad thing? Just for contrast, Windows XP was released in Oct 2001, Service Pack 2 was released on Aug 6, 2004. SP 3 is reportedly STILL in development and might be released in the next few months. 2 updates in the space of more than 5 years compared to Apple releasing updates and patches in the frequency of close to 1 every month or at the mimimum per quarter and most critical bugs are patched and fixed within less than a week and ready for download. Oh by the way, in these releases, Apple has proacti
  4. Sadly, the only folks I encountered in downtown Sydney at a McDonald's who seemed fervent in "faith" were men who were sitting around dabbling with UFO conspiracy theories while carrying a big bible around. It troubled me to know that baptist church buildings are now converted to become pubs and restaurants.
  5. The problem is that the rest of the world has become enamoured by all this and are bringing mardi gras into their own countries. It's a matter of time before all the other wickedness follows.

    Native Music

    If the traditional music has to do with pagan worship, it can't be used. I know of a church where they reeled back in horror when the missionary originally suggested using their traditional instruments for their music. He found out why - they used those instruments to direct the departed souls of the dead to their final resting place. It was unthinkable for them to use their traditional instruments because of that association. Furthermore for them, their particular history and culture was such that most of their songs were associated with sad funerals of loved ones who were cruelly murdered
  8. Paul was born out of due time, the scripture says what it says but while you have charged others here for not reading in context, you need to read this in context. "Due time" was with reference to the sequence of eyewitnesses of Christ's resurrection by the disciples and apostles and has nothing to do with your assertion of Paul's irresistible conversion. (1Cor 15:4-8) 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the
  9. The problem is that these changes have also been copied and duplicated into newer hymnals and I think it has affected also the Majesty Hymns hymnal. This will be increasingly the case as the 1st edition Soul Stirring Hymns fades away into history as it is no longer being printed with the exception of 1 or 2 printing ministries which are reproducing the old copy.
  10. It is not uncommon for bus workers to chalk up multiple salvation decisions even by the same child week after week. The proof is still in a changed life and while we are never going to be sinlessly perfect, we will be sinning less as a general trend. The turning point for us over here is about the age of 14-15 when either the rebellious sin nature fully rears its ugly head or it has been greatly subdued because of genuine salvation. That's when I can really see whether there was a genuine turning to Christ for salvation or not. At the earlier ages, we tend to overlook all this and discount
  11. 1. No Christian has any business being involved in trying to celebrate and indulge in as much sin as possible before Lent, which is the whole premise of Mardi Gras - to enjoy as much of the world as possible before you enforce a period of "piety". 2. No Christian lady would be on the streets during Mardi Gras trying to shed her clothing and earn as many bead necklaces thrown to her by the "appreciative" audience for baring her bosom 3. No Christian man has any business being there watching these women or "soaking up" the whole atmosphere ie. using this for our entertainment. Rom 1 warns us
  12. John, the answer to that is simple: WHEN you let your theology interpret the bible instead of letting the bible determine your theology. Thus far, we can established that beloved57 holds to salvation being only for the elect, that repentance comes after regeneration and that Israel consists of Jews and the redeemed elect. We can further establish that he will continue to debate Acts 2:37-38 but ignore all the other scripture that was already discussed. Not only that but he will now have us believe that conviction is equivalent to repentance ignoring the scriptures that show us that there h
  13. Ah... finally the Calvinism is showing its colours. Thanks for clarifying where you are coming from.
  14. You may be opposed to the idea of repenting of sin, but let's see what scripture has to say and in particular, what Jesus Himself taught: Matt 21:28-32 28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. 29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans
