  1. 14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
  2. Calvinism shares alot of its 'theology' with Islam; a selfish god devoid of love. A god in the likeness of sinful man. The only real god with those attributes is the god of this world...the Devil. Muslims will kill you for saying things like this; I wonder how far staunch Calvinists would go?
  3. Neither Calvin, Spurgeon, nor any of those other dudes were around when I got saved on May 11, 1986; just the Word of God and the Holy Ghost.
  4. God created some to go to Hell for His "glory" and we can't accept that because "God's ways are higher than our ways". (even though Genesis chapter 3 says we have "knowledge of good and evil"). Hey, even LOST people know that's evil.
  5. If a person gets saved, he then becomes one of those predestined to be conformed to the image of Christ. But before that same man believes on Jesus and gets saved, he's not predestined to anything: He's on his way to Hell.
  6. It's not what we think but what the Bible says. The Bible says that "God so loved the world" not some of the world. The Bible says that "God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked". The Bible says that "God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance". The Bible documents that people can hear the Gospel, be convicted, and then reject it of their own free will. And God has documented that He loves people who He knows will reject Him. I can give you more but I'm kind of busy right now.
  7. A preacher friend of mine says it's pretty prevalent in Black churches.
  8. Luke 18:13 King James Version (KJV) 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. Sin Righteousness Judgement You must deal with "sin, rigteousness and judgement". You must turn to God from your sin, knowing that God is going to judge you in Hell and that you DESERVE it. . I've heard it put like "taking God's side against yourself".
  9. .......and why specially "prepare" a great fish to swallow him if it was just going to swallow and kill him like "great fish" normally do?
  10. Now this is a head scratcher. I always notice the Biblical content of songs, don't you? This Bluegrass album, by Daily and Vincent was playing at the house yesterday and this one was on it. Now I've heard many times of the false doctrine of getting to Heaven by your "deeds measuring up". But why in the world would anyone want a "place on Calvary"? Jesus took your place on Calvary! It appears that whoever wrote this song has no idea what salvation is about. "A Place On Calvary" Lower my body And lift my soul And tell me to come on home have Let me leave this world of sin '
  11. Have you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ to save your wicked soul from God's judgement in Hell and, been indwelled with the Holy Spirit? If so, you cannot be lost: ever. Please read the following verse carefully. John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. #1. If you possess(hath) everlasting life....it's "everlasting" #2. "Shall not" means "condemnation" is never going to happen. There are other verses but this one sho
  12. 14For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. 16For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? It doesn't exactly say "freed to remarry" does it?
  13. I have come to agree with that assessment, but what concerns me now is the situation developing in the State of Virginia: why has President Trump not weighed in on this? Or at least made a statement about it?
  14. Never, ever be alone with the opposite sex or someone else's children/grandchildren. That way you are far less likely to be falsely accused. And never leave your kids alone with someone else, even a preacher or deacon: If a preacher or deacon is what he ought to be, he will insist on that as well. Our church always has two attendants in the nursery, and "children's church" at all times.
  15. I've heard it so many times that it's considered"fornication" only premarital or during the "betrothal" period. But I know of three (3) families, baptists, in which the husband went to prison for molesting the children. If that isn't "fornication" I don't know what is. It would be so with an offending wife as well.. The Bible says ''except it be for fornication'';' otherwise, marriage is always holy and legitimate.
  16. He certainly did! Baby Christians have to be admonished, rebuked, chastened and corrected because we all do dumb stuff, just like Brother Simon. As a personal testimony, I myself did not repent of a list of sins, or any specific sin that I recall. I DID repent of being what I was: a low-down sinner. Repentence, in salvation, is simply turning to Jesus from sin and self. Not a step one, step two, step three thing. At least it was for me.
  17. Sometime back i joined the masons, now I've moved to a higher degree > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > stone masons that is.
  18. Psalm 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. If you ain't a "sheep", Jesus didn't give His life for you and you ain't one of "His people".
  19. Jesus said that the only sin which cannot be forgiven is the "blasphemy of the Holy Ghost". So to say that homosexuals or effeminates cannot be saved is quite frankly a lie of the Devil. The Bible plainly mentions "abusers of themselves with mankind" and (speaking to Christians) says "and such were some of you". Now a Homosexual or effeminate who has blasphemed the Holy Ghost; that is, of course, a different story, they sin their "day of grace" away as anyone else doing the same. As to a "reprobate mind", this is a morally corrupt mind. But God does not "make" a person think, say or do wicked
