  1. So what? I have heard this argument used many times by his followers and it is ridiculous, because Anderson teaches that they cannot be saved. So you are effectively bragging that you wasted your time preaching to people who by Anderson's teaching are unable to be saved. This is EXACTLY what the Calvinist does when he says that he preaches the Gospel to everyone knowing that only "the elect" (according to Calvin's corrupt doctrines) can be saved. It is MEANINGLESS. And the majority of preachers here are concerned with two things: preaching the Gospel to the lost, and preaching doctri
  2. So only the doctrines that you think are unimportant should be ignored, as long as the Gospel is preached? Thanks for clearing that up.
  3. So are you suggesting that any false doctrines can be preached as long as the Gospel is right?
  4. But your premise that many of us are rejecting logic and that we "believe because we want to" is just wrong. Christians should be the greatest skeptics the world knows, but you are not trying the spirits. You truly are starting at the place that Thomas was: "I will not believe, unless I see the scars and feel the wounds." There have been several answers given which you dismiss because you don't like them. They are not "bad answers" as you see them to be, they simply are not satisfying to you. We can't help that. If you do not want to believe, then nothing will convince you - and by a
  5. Pro 14:12 (12) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
  6. 2Ti 2:15 (15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
  7. The bolded part of the quote says everything that needs to be said. This man ahs done this on several occasions: he quotes a part of a statement and then answers something that was not actually posed. Here is the actual post that Alan made, to show that this guys answer is a false accusation against Alan, for Alan never posed such as this guy suggests. This is plain misrepresentation. He is not here to get an answer for his supposed troubles. If he was he would not misrepresent people, and he would not introduce side issues to cloud the discussion, such as why he introdu
  8. Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
  9. John 8 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  10. Joh 17:17 (17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
  11. Psa 118:8 (8) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
  12. Never happier than when defending fallible men, never sadder than when denying the truth of the Word of God. There's your problem right there - You put more store in the words of men than in the Word of God. How quickly you come to the defense of men, and how quickly you dismiss the Word of God. STOP READING WHAT MEN SAY AND START READING THE WORD OF GOD. Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
  13. Nuff said..... I am out. No accusation - your starting position is the same as Thomas - I WILL NOT BELIEVE...…. This attitude displayed in your responses to anyone who has tried to help, and displayed further in the quotes above tells me that you are not actually after answers You are convinced that the Bible is not true, and until you move from that premise you cannot make any forward progress. You need to worry less about what men like CS Lewis or Peterson say and try studying the Bible in order to answer your own questions. You are obviously not interested in what ot
  14. Your beginning premise is wrong. Your beginning is that the Bible is NOT TRUE, and you are asking people to prove to you that it is true. This is you (and I suspect why you have chosen that name....): Joh 20:24-25 (24) But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. (25) The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. This is the clea
  15. Longer answer than I intended, so sorry about that, but if you are really interested you will read it all. As Wretched said, if you are looking for a 100% kind of thing, then you are looking to do without faith. Heb 11:6 (6) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. However, to address the three examples you cite: First of all, we must confirm that you are talking about the KJV. Most of the other versions have some pretty
  16. Woah there big boy......The only place I remember John saying anything to do with "low calibre" is: And yet you accuse him of saying: You need to be careful with your accusations, for that is not what John said, nor even what he implied. In fact, almost exactly the opposite. He didn't say they were defiling the church, and he didn't restrict the reason to only divorce - in fact he didn't even designate divorce specifically. And yet you go on a rant about all the other problems with churches today saying that John was ignoring those and suggesting it was ALL ABOUT DI
  17. I didn't say you were wrong, I simply suggested a line of study for anyone who cared. It is always better for us to study for ourselves rather than accept what someone says. Does the passage speak of sin or qualifications, and what impact does that have on the subject?
  18. 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.
  19. 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 be
  20. 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 …...
  21. 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.
  22. We have a FB page that events are posted on, but that's it.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. We are currently going through Isaiah. Just finished chapter 6, lesson 20..... We could be here a while....
