  1. Yeah, I couldn't resist that one. And I just love that his name is "Dollar" anyway......
  2. The bloke on the right has indigestion. The one in the middle just heard one of the other two break wind and is waiting for the odour to hit. Martin Short could very well be chanting DaveW, but it is a bit hard to get your tongue around in that setting - more likely just "Davo, Davo, Davo".....
  3. Can we add another one to this? The internet theologian!
  4. Is that Martin Short?? He is a versatile actor. Very underrated.
  5. I will make a bit of a comment about this chart. It is very difficult to see how the tribes relate to the items mentioned without some sort of explanation. The positions of the tribes are in direct relation to the tabernacle, but in that case what does the tabernacle represent among them - for in that relationship the tabernacle is central - both physically and in concept. But the tabernacle is not mentioned at all on the chart. I am not 100% certain without checking but I think the position of the tribes in the 3x4 grid relates to the High Priests breastplate, but again what meaning does that carry in the chart? The three parts of the atom relating to the three persons of the Godhead I find curious because there are a multiplicity of protons and electrons in any given atom - is this suggesting the possibility of multiple gods, because that is the obvious suggestion - that Jesus is not the only one and the Holy Spirit is not the only one. And also the Higgs boson is supposed to be a sub particle of atoms which would indicate that God is made up of priests and levites....... Without a legend of explanation this chart, aside from being useless on it's own, could easily be interpreted as promoting multiple gods and the raising of men up to be gods. So, at best the chart is useless as provided, and at worst it is teaching and promoting false teaching and doctrines.
  6. I don't think anyone is suggesting you be banned...... yet. Jerry has responded to your sarcasm and aggressive tone. I will say that we don't often take to kindly to people arriving here and taking it upon themselves to "teach" their pet doctrines. What we do like is people who want to join our community and discuss - not argue about things. But you are drawing some hugely long bows and making some strange interpretations and then telling us that we don't believe what the Bible says. But you haven't really introduced yourself properly and you haven't entered into any general "get to know you" type conversations. Hang for a while. Get to know is and help us to get to know you. THEN join the discussions and DISCUSS rather than just argue.
  7. Note - I couldn't figure out how to post from the other thread to here, so I quote his first post and edited the text with that from the other thread. This explains the incorrect time stamp. Now then: I went looking for their online church and did not find any such thing. In fact as far as I can tell the two men are nor associated and it seems like one of them is dead. And neither of them are running an on line church. I didn't spend huge time searching, so there is a possibility I am wrong, but that is what I have found. So the truth of the matter is that you don't go to any church, but you do find preachers that you like to listen to. 2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; That what it seems like to me. Show us that I am wrong please.
  8. You genuinely have no idea about proper Biblical interpretation....... You make the Scripture fit with your ideas. That is wrong. Part of this problem stems from you not being a part of a church but instead getting your teaching from people you don't know and who don't know nor care about you. There is a reason why God made churches.
  9. Nup nup nup - sorry, but this has no basis in scripture. You have twisted those passages in order to present something that is, once again, not in the passage. You are reading into the passage what you want in it. You are not reading from the passage what is already in it.
  10. I wonder, since you have been back on here at half an hour if you wouldn't mind answering my question in your intro please? I am interested in the answers there. Thanks. Can I just say, personally your attitude doesn't seem great. You are using language which is not respectful and which has an aggressive tone to it. Can I suggest that you tone it back and speak with a little more reserve and respect?
  11. Aaaahhhh- actually they are in this case. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason to suggest the rich man nor Lazarus was either asleep or dreaming in the passage. This a concept that you have entirely imposed onto the passage, for it is not found in the passage.
  12. The KJV has absolutely no indication that the account of the rich man and Lazarus was a dream in any way. It is stated as a factual, real event experienced personally by these two men.
  13. Welcome. Several different groups are solidly KJV - what is your affiliation? Who are you associated with? What kind of church are you a member of?
  14. I agree with the David Cloud recommendation. He has Pdf material available. However, most of Brother Sargent's material is also available as pdf. If you contact him direct and explain your situation I am sure he can help you out. Both of these men have good conservative Bible material.
  15. Of course parents can be wrong. No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. But there is no doubt that God expects us to honour and obey our parents. Eph 6:1-3 (1) Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. (2) Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) (3) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. Where it says to obey, that word actually means more than just doing what you are told - it also carries with it the idea that we should obey with the right attitude. It is easy to do as we are told but not having the right attitude with it. And where it says "honour", that means to value them or more to the point "to ascribe value" to them. This means that you make them valuable to you. This doesn't mean that you honour them when they deserve it, but that you honour them and value them because they are your parents. That is probably not what you want to hear, but the Bible is plain that we are to honour and obey our parents not because they are right, but simply because they are our parents. We are to value them not because they are good, or even good parents, but because they are our parents. The ONLY out for that is where they would tell you to do something that is against the Bible and God's Commands. You should never go against God's Word, but you must find a way to honour them whilst refusing to dishonour God. Finally, can you say you have always been a perfect child? I am going to answer for you - no, you haven't been. I can safely assume this because no one has ever been a perfect child. How then can you expect them to be perfect parents? They are made of the same stuff that you are. I do have one final, final thing to say - if any of this involves personal danger to you, then get yourself out of danger. Once you are safe you can figure out what the best course of action is from there, and how honouring your parents fits with that.
  16. I didn't see this specific article but I am aware of the site. Cool quote there too Alan.
  17. Can I encourage you to try ever preacher or teacher against the Word of God. Whether it is live preaching, on line preaching, books, or college course, don't simply accept anybody's teaching, but test it and study it from God's Word. Look at Acts 17 10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Note that these were more noble because they searched the scriptures testing whether the preaching of Paul was correct. Paul was an apostle, used of God to write about half the New Testsment. If it was ok to check that Paul was preaching it right then you can be sure it is ok for you check anybody else.
  18. Shouldn't really make up your own meanings to words..... That is what most of the cults do - they make up their own definitions for words and then say they agree with you. (Applying their own definition)
  19. This is an interesting addition to your study. Gal 3:22-25 (22) But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. (23) But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. (24) Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. The Law had a job (purpose) of teaching us that we need Christ. Even today, the fact that no one is able to keep all the Law teaches those willing to listen that there is only one way - through Christ Jesus the Lord.
  20. No, not me. My Dad was in Vietnam - came back better than most. He stayed in the Army for 21 years. So, military family. I joined the airforce cadets when I was a youngster, and thought about following on, but that didn't happen.
  21. Day of remembrance for Australian and New Zealand soldiers. "Lest we forget....." The Ode They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. Lest we forget......
  22. For your "pet" doctrine? This is something that I have observed over many years: that people find a pet doctrine, or are convinced of a certain doctrine, and they then proceed to throw away some very basic doctrines in pursuit of their new favourite. An example of what I mean. I knew a man who was rabid about the KJV and about adult believer's baptism - both good basic positions to hold. However, over the years he became convinced of the "merits" of Calvinism. Now in our city there were few Independent Baptist Churches that were even Calvinistic leaning, let alone full on Calvinist. This meant that to find a church that would teach and hold to his new fav doctrine, he was forced to search outside IB circles, and the most obvious choice was the Presbyterians, who by and large are Calvinistic. The problem is that the majority are also infant baptism, modern versions, universal church, and other wonky things. But he was willing to throw out these basic IB doctrines and a few others as well, because hey hold to Calvin's doctrines of grace. The thing that amazes me is that even if Calvin's muck was right, why would throw out everything else for that one thing? And I have seen similar things over the years, where men are happy to link up with prominent men who teach doctrines clearly outside Baptist norms for sake of a particular doctrine they personally are having fun with. The latest is a guy I know who is rabid about KJV for instance and super conservative about music and "worship style", has linked up and is always posting quotes from people like Macarthur, who is modern worship and modern versions. But he promotes his current favourite doctrine, and so he is happy to link up with him...... I just don't understand this - ignore the differences, which are often vast, to accept a single doctrine. Anyone seen this phenomenon?
  23. Bit I find it interesting that you quote Scriptures regarding the practice of the Passover and the Feast of unleavened bread, but conveniently leave out the command for them. The practice was not always right, but the command is unchangeable. And there certainly has been harvest feasts of Pagan origin dating back to well before Christ, and at least one of them was involving the false God Ishatar which SOME say is where we get Easter from. I don't know who it was nor when Easter was associated with Passover, but to totally disregard the pagan association is just not really very genuine. And such feasts are known to be associated with this time of year for in the northern hemisphere that time is the beginning of harvest (generally). Intersting also that such feasts are times according to the moon phases. Passover is a specific date in the Jewish calendar. I just don't particularly like it when people make statements that are incorrect and basically try to bully people into accepting them.
