  1. For the record, Cary Schmidt was one of the associates with Paul Chappel. They are one of the main "conservative" independent Baptist colleges in the US. Cary Schmidt is independent Baptist to the best of my knowledge, but possibly not as conservative as many on here. I only state this for the information, and do not imply any criticism.
  2. 1 Timothy 3 1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; note 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; note 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. note 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. I have been rather surprised that people are talking about sin in relation to this passage. Where does it talk about sin? It doesn't. It speaks of qualifications, not sin. Maybe people should consider that rather than talking about this in terms of sin. Sin? Qualifications? What is the difference between them? Interesting study for those who can be bothered and are interested in the biblical truth rather than winning an argument.
  3. A search indicates that it is Cary Schmidt, Emmanuel Baptist church somewhere...….. I think this is a problem with the RSS mechanism - at one stage long ago it used to give the extra info from the feed, but at one of the upgrades it stopped. It might be a setting somewhere??????? https://caryschmidt.com/2019/10/move-forward-or-stand-still-which-is-it/ In any case it is annoying …...
  4. I gotta say that I am distressed at the broad accusations made by SAB and directed at ANYONE who disagrees with his view..... I find it offensive. And juvenile.
  5. We have a FB page that events are posted on, but that's it.
  6. But you don't do that - you defend the man. You like the guy..... You like at least some of his teaching.... You defend the man...... On any level the guy is clearly not qualified to be a pastor, clearly teaches false doctrine, clearly is a bad testimony for the Lord, clearly goes beyond Scripture, clearly does not follow the duties of a Pastor...... etc. You need to stop defending a man who is clearly a heretic. But you can't help yourself - you are a fan..... and no matter how much you deny it, your posts tell a different story. Follow no man - follow only the Lord and His Word.
  7. Why even bother? This guy is clearly a false teacher, and no Bible lover should have anything to do with him. I don't know why you insist on defending a man who is so clearly a bad testimony for the Lord, and who is so clearly a false teacher, and so clearly a hateful man. Anything that he gets right you can find with teachers who don't have his false teaching. In my opinion, anyone who is so prominent as a teacher online and promotes themselves as such is unbiblical - IF he is a pastor (regardless of what he calls himself), he should concern himself with the flock to which the Lord has given him. NO MAN is Pastor to the world. God gives pastors to individual churches, not to the "whole world".......
  8. We are currently going through Isaiah. Just finished chapter 6, lesson 20..... We could be here a while....
  9. 1. I never said definitions were unimportant. I implied that definitions need to be correct. 2. The Greek supports the definition of the word. Just like any dictionary gives definitions. 3. Your proposed definition of wife, given with no reference as to its origin, does not align with the official definitions. To be honest, I am not interested in becoming further involved in this discussion, but as you say, definitions are important, but it is also important that they are correct definitions.

    Hello

    Thanks, and welcome.
  11. It seems to me that much is being made of certain definitions, but those definitions for not appear to be true. For instance, the greek word from which is translated the word "wife" has a primary meaning of "woman", and a secondary of "specifically a wife", which makes the word a descriptive rather than a "title". Secondly, a bishop is absolutely required to rule his house well, the reference to children being an addendum to that, but a wife is absolutely a part of that household. Finally, the rules on divorce must be considered, as Biblically not all divorce is the same. One thing is certain about divorce though: Matt 19:8 8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. Hey friend, why don't you pop across to the intro section and introduce yourself properly.
  12. I actually think it is a bit of a pity this ended up like this. I genuinely want such people to properly answer the points put to them. It helps me to understand the arguments. Of course this guy was not properly responding in any case, but it is still a pity he decided to force the mods to act. Thanks to the mods for acting appropriately and quickly by the way.
  13. This kind of behaviour is simply disgusting and should not be heard from anyone calling themselves a Christian.
  14. I repeated it because you refused to do so. I stopped as soon as I was asked. I would have stopped the moment you gave this board the proper respect of an intro. Your foul descriptions however should not pass the keyboard of a Christian.
  15. This is a disgusting personal attack. I am neither old, nor senile, and you know nothing about me - that is obvious. And you are wrong. If you paid any real attention you would know you are wrong. And the language you use to refer to the forum is also a disrespectful disgrace.
