  1. I gotta say..... Of all the things mentioned in my critique of the original post, there is not one answer, not one objection, not one disputed point - except that the person has taken offense at my use of the word stupid - which as I said was not directed at the person but at the proposition. Seems to me that the person was seeking for something to be offended at.... I did after all clearly display how the proposition was indeed a stupid one. Oh well...…...
  2. I didn't call you stupid, I said your proposition was stupid.
  3. I didn't post in this thread until now because I was not interested in the straw man proposition at the very start. I finally stuck my nose in when the OP proposed a clearly unbiblical form of baptism, but now that my nose is "in here" I am going to waggle it around a little. The original post is so full of false premise that it simply isn't funny. Who cares what the Gospel Coalition says (whoever they are...)? I know from my own experience that when I was saved 30+ years ago, and then a few month later baptised, people were already having the discussions about ch
  4. Romans 6 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Likeness of his death....... Don't ya hate it when the Bible disagrees with you?
  5. There is ABSOLUTELY no biblical instruction nor example of this. How does this show the death of Christ?
  6. And Pomegranate juice from the streetside stalls is mmmmmmmmmmmmwonderfuuuuullllllmmmmmmmmm. Cut, squeezed, and served over ice - as fresh as it comes, and so refreshing..... - although I think at that time it might still be a little chilly there.... And the streetside coffee is yum if you like it strong, but if you have never had Arabic (or Turkish coffee - not quite the same - different spices, but similar...consistency...), just a warning - the last half inch is not meant to be drunk.
  7. Oh...… I forgot.... Whilst in Jerusalem, if you have spare time, you MUST MUST MUST go to Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. The whole complex is astounding, the main museum walk is exhausting - not because of the length - it is not all that long, but the subject matter is so well presented, but so hard to endure - and I already knew about much of it. But to be confronted in the way they do there is...…. essential. When you exit the museum section you come out into a lovely serene view over a valley, and a beautiful cool breeze blowing across you - just what is needed to reflect for a
  8. If it is not part of the tour, the Garden Tomb is worth the time. But if it is anything like the trip I took, the hotel room with eyes closed will be the best place. So tuckered by the end of the trip......... Tel Aviv - it depends where you are staying - we were close to the sea and a cafe strip and shopping area. Stood and watched the sea a while and had a lovely cafe meal. You will enjoy yourself.
  9. They are a Catholic order - since the catholic 'church's has rarely been the 'loser' and you are talking about a catholic order, their history should be relatively accurate. By definition, someone named Benedict was the organiser......
  10. Hey guys, what about the guy I quoted from another thread who is clearly outlining a non sola-scriptura guidance? Anyone got a comment?
  11. Why has this been posted in a totally unrelated thread ? (Fasting was the OP....) For the record, I doubt that anyone on here would even try to defend the sinful actions of wicked men, but you have presented no scripture to back up your accusation that this is directly related to "Once saved always saved". However, eternal security IS a Bible doctrine - NOT Calvin's way, but the Bible way. The many names you mention in your post are criticised by many on here whenever their names are put forward, because they are hateful AND unscriptural in many of their teachings and actions.
  12. Hey Weary and NoNics, some bloke on here posted this in another thread, which is relevant to this subject also: (It was here: https://onlinebaptist.com/forums/topic/27985-why-large-families/?do=findComment&comment=447673")
  13. Not at all suggesting that this isn't happening, but I have never had a real problem with windows versions and updates. My systems have always just worked - only problems I have had are old systems getting junked up with updates (slowing down), and attacks from scammers. But it was pointed out to me that if you type 4x4 whilst holding down the shift key you get $×$, and that CAN'T be a co-incidence!
  14. No...... no it doesn't say that. It says this: Rom 14:20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
  15. Not at all - I thought it might be helpful to give some explanation.
  16. I don't actually remember, but I think the first post (which was mine) was separated from an existing thread. The Original post was posted to lay out the plain and biblical facts of the matter in such a way that the issue was made plain. As can be clearly seen, the plain biblical facts are still denied by some, and excuses are made to allow those to continue to argue, whilst pretending they are not.....
  17. From your description, she doesn't believe in reincarnation but is using that as an excuse to "avoid God". I say that because she changed to "Hell is alright with her", and then changed the subject and led you away from presenting salvation through Christ. A good lesson - don't let the other person control the direction of the conversation - no matter what they say, acknowledge it, then bring Christ into it again. Remember: Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of th
  18. Why would you give money to a group that is not biblical, when you could give some money to a missionary that your church supports or knows, and then you know that the money will go to the furtherance of the Gospel, and not into some organisation which will eat half of it up for the running of their "business"? I know that the church I go to has a separate "missions giving account" and every single dollar that is given for missions goes the missionaries who are out there preaching the Gospel and seeing people saved: not one cent of it goes to admin and running costs of this church - that
  19. A. I love that you at once say you do not follow Andetson and then immediately say you do....... B. Sometimes popular doctrine is popular BECAUSE it is right.... C. People here in general do not like Anderson because he is a proven false teacher, and not just in this matter, but in many matters D. Your initial premise is a set up for this argument. You have twice said something like "when I see effeminate preachers"...... I would suggest you stop going where effeminate preachers preach, and stop looking for effeminate preachers to be offended by. You won't find them at the chur
  20. Lunch guests - in the Bush east of Perth. They were on the end of the table, but I didn't think to get a photo until later. Ring necks. Just one of the local parrots we see.
  21. So for asking for Scripture to back up your statements, I get no scripture, but I do get sarcasm?????? Really?
  22. No sorry - YOU are the one who distinctly separated fear and respect, and now you are being evasive when asked to support your proposition with Scripture. It shouldn't be that hard if it is biblical. Verses to support your claim please.
  23. What verse? Remember that you suggested that fear AS WELL AS respect are required..... So which verse supports that? I can't see anything in Roman's 13 that stands out as saying what you are saying, so help me out a bit here.
  24. Bible reference for this please? Actually Bible reference for any of it please? (And note that I am not necessarily saying any part of what you are saying is wrong, but EVERYTHING we do need to be Bible based.)
