  1. By the way, Brother Graham (Lydia's Dad), is a nice guy and a very accomplished musician, aside from anything else. (I don't know him well - doubt he would recognise me at all, but I have met him a few times, and been privileged to hear him play. We live about 4000km away)
  2. I am not confusing last trumps. I pointed to the very last trump.
  3. Revelation 18 notes "trumpeters" (shall be heard no more in thee), so we can safely surmise that up to that point trumpeters were heard, and that means that trumpets had to be around. But trumpets are not mentioned again in Scripture after that point, so the last trump was done away with just prior to Revelation 18:22. That would have to be "the last trump", surely. And the last mention of "horn" is in Revelation 17, but I don't think those ones "trumped" at all....... different kind of horn. I think have shown that the last trump was not one of the judgement trumpets at all, but some unknown bloke playing just before Revelation 18. I think I may have trumped you all. Unless of course the last trump spoken of is Donald - does he have a son to carry on the name, or is he "the last Trump"?
  4. I certainly apologise if my response came across that way, for that was definitely not my intent. I was simply trying to point out that the Bible, not our own thoughts, should be the prime. Sorry if it came across as aggressive or mean.
  5. As long as your thoughts come from the Bible and are in line with what the Bible says, there should be no problem. If the way you worship the Lord is in line with the Bible, there will be no problem. But if your thoughts or the way you worship the Lord is NOT in line with the Bible, wouldn't you want to have that pointed out?
  6. I should add a couple of things: 1. My wife does far more than many Pastor's wives that I know. Everyone is different and I know several Pastor's wives with severe health issues which restrict them. They would do more if they could. But I know of some Pastor's wives who put 100% into being the best wife and mother they can be, and they cannot be derided for that either. My wife seems to find the energy to do it all - I have to tell her to rest and then it is under sufferance, which is why the accusations were so hurtful to her. 2. Whilst there are no quals that I have ever found, I do think that a Pastor's wife, being his help meet for him, should do more than your average "Mature Christian Lady". 3. The lady involved is obviously having a hard time herself right now (hurting people hurt people - it is true) and I did not give her a piece of my mind partly because I knew about some of this (and partly because I can't go giving away pieces of my mind - I have precious little left right now!). I am not even sure she knows or understands what she did. It really was better here than...…… direct to her. I needed a place to vent that would not harm her, and I do appreciate those of you who were no doubt inclined towards blasting me holding off on that course.
  7. You know there are times when you really shouldn't answer right away? Well..... A lady who has been at our church for about two years (not a member) and comes from an eclectic church background (lots of baggage) has just called my wife to accuse her of not being available outside church, and to complain that another lady is always reporting back to the pastor (me), and a few other things. My wife just rang me upset as anything. She could not get a word in edgeways while this lady just unloaded. Now my wife feels terrible "because she has not been doing enough". My wife is wonderful but she wears things like this heavily, and so this will affect her for a while now. I want to ring this lady and give her an piece of my mind, but I fear I don't have enough mind to spare for things like this. It seems to me that loads of people don't realise that a pastor's wife is not a pastor but the help meet for the pastor, and as such is not is a position to bear this kind of thing. There you go. I THINK I have vented enough now. Thanks for listening........
  8. Onion can be fresh on a burger, just so long as it is only a little, but the only real way to eat onion is fried on the BBQ. Or deep fried in batter - onion rings...… mmmmm-mmmm-mmmm-mmmmmmmmmm
  9. We have a bible institute that is taught by local pastors. That means that a man can stay serving at the church where he was saved, grew, and was called to service, but still get a rounded "education". Interestingly, of the four pastors currently involved we have one who was "big Bible college" (Heartland actually), one who was "small local college", one who was "evening Bible institute", and one was "direct mentored" by his pastor (with no "formal bible college education at all). We have an ongoing discussion about the differences, but all of us accept that options are useful and each of us has a valid preparation. __________________
  10. You know, I understand the "salty-sweet" thing as a concept, but it just doesn't work for me.
  11. Nothing like Peanut Butter..... Vegemite is Yummo…. But cheese and Vegemite shouldn't be together......
  12. Happy Australia Day everyone! 26th January 1788 is the day the First Fleet arrived at Sydney Cove. 11 ships 1400 people, and an evangelical preacher called Richard Johnson, who brought with him 4200 bibles. He preached from Psalm 116: 12, 13 12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. The first Christian message preached on Australian shores was from this passage, by a man who refused to preach good works (when ordered by the governor), instead preaching of salvation by grace through faith.
  13. This was a national debate over here not so long ago. Bread or roll....... For the record, I prefer a snag angled from corner to corner of a square piece of bread, topped with fried onion, and drizzled in tomato sauce, then fold the bread around it all. But if I get given a bun, I am gracious enough to consume it without grumbling. And I am serious about it being a national debate - news stories, stations taking votes of their viewers/listeners, even the politicians getting involved. But everyone knew it was just for fun. Mostly. Sorta.
  14. First point: this is a kjv forum. It is in the rules. Please only quote from the KJV. Secondly, Jesus was very plainly speaking present tense using the terms everlasting (in these verses) and eternal in respect to salvation life. Joh 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. Joh 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. No amount of maneuvering by you can change this fact. Either it is eternal or it never was.......... It is very simple. I believe on Him, I have HAVE eternal life. End of story. If it can be lost, it is not, was not, and never will be eternal nor everlasting.
