    Konstantin, either engage in respectful dialogue, or cease and desist. Name calling is the sign of a poor argument.

    With all due respect, you are not making any sense nor are you keeping anything on topic which is causing confusion. If you want to go with the same logic you provided in the quote above, then I would say also that God is not the author of confusion. Maybe it's a language barrier, if that's the case just let us know.

    Just letting you know there is an issue. It's not a matter of being lazy on my part but rather you checking to see why they would be flagging your site and fixing the security/safety issue for those considering visiting your site.

    Praying that the Lord would continue to comfort his family.
    I know I have shared this way back when, but perhaps it could be a comfort to his family.

    When I was expecting Josh, we went to a race (not NASCAR, but cars) with my parents. He seemed to enjoy it - every time the cars went roaring past, he'd kick. Hard. LOL

    Grieving is understandable.  What a difference salvation makes when it comes to losing loved ones on this earth.

    They are doing ok. Still grieving, of course, but so very thankful they know he is in Glory. My friend's daughter just gave her another grandchild, so God will use that, I'm sure, to bring some comfort. Thank you for asking!

    Yeah, that wouldn't look good.
    "Where's Pastor Matt today? Is he at a missions conference?"
    "No".
    "Is he preaching at a revival?"
    "No."
    "Is he caring for a sick family member?"
    "No."
    "Well, where is he today?"
    "He's at the Patriots game!"

    They are fun and I prefer baseball over basketball games as you don't have to deal with cheerleaders and dancing, and its outside which I prefer. I don't go to Celtics games anymore because of the "entertainment" shows that seem to be the dominants force. The biggest thing for me and baseball is the beer, not that I'm tempted, but dunk people make things annoying.

    Baseball has always been my favorite to. CT is sandwiched between Boston and New York, so any given night we can go to Fenway, Yankee Stadium (I have to hold my nose when typing that), or Citi field. We even have I believe around 4 minor league teams within 45 minutes we can go to. 
    I'll take my daughter to Fenway once this year since I promised her I'd take her.

    Thank you Jim. We had another great service yesterday, as we had a missionary to Japan in and we were able to take them on for support.

    How come our government doesn't believe in science? If they did, they would also include those that had Covid-19 that have the antibodies to fight off the virus in removing the masks. It seems from studies that the natural antibodies are more effective than that vaccine.

    Well said Bro. Dave, I echo your sentiments as well. Bro. Alan will be missed by all who loved and knew him. Like you, I never met him in person, but counted him as a dear friend all the same.

    I miss the reasoned, godly voice and advice of my friend Alan.
    I miss his lessons posted here.
    I miss his input to the discussions.
    Mostly I miss his gentle advice, direction, and when necessary, rebukes.
    Pro 27:6(a)  Faithful are the wounds of a friend;
    Pro 27:17
    (17)  Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
     
    Although we never met face to face, I count him as a true friend, and look forward to the day when we do meet face to face, as we glory  in the Lord together.

    I know all of our churches can use prayer, but I would like to ask prayer for our church Highpoint Baptist Church. We are on the verge on certain days of out-growing our little building and need to seek the Lords guidance. Serving the Lord is great. Here is our most recent baptism that we had 2 weeks ago.

    HappyChristian got a reaction from PastorMatt in How many (if any) Deacons does your church have and how much power do they have?   
    Ugh...nothing like typing an answer and it getting deleted. Grr...and it happened again. I'm not very fond of this keyboard - the cursor jumps and messes things up constantly.
    Anyway...our church is too small for deacons right now.  Instead, my husband started a men's council. All men who are members of the church are invited and welcome to attend the quarterly meeting to discuss the business meeting agenda.
    While they are not titled as deacons, they do some of the same things. For instance, my hubs bounces off them different things like purchases for the church that costs above his monthly discretionary fund (not his pay...just a certain amount that the church voted on to allow him to use for the church without having to meet and vote on it). They discuss the financial report and vote to recommend it to the congregation at the meeting. Etc. 
    I know that, once we are at the point where we need deacons, much of what the men do will be what the deacons do. They won't have "authority" but will still discuss and recommend things to the church during meetings.  And other things as the Bible lays out.

    Unfortunately, some churches do display this kind of behavior. Like Pastor Markle said, put your trust in God alone and not people.
    May I ask what hypocrites in the church have to do with your individual relationship with God? Your faith should be in God, not a pastor or people
