  1. We did what now!!?! Honestly, though, who needs to watch the news? I get all the current affairs info I need off here and Facebook.
  2. Okay, let’s get back to the topic.
  3. I suppose the correct answer to this post is No, because if they're a women preacher, they're not a good Baptist! Times change, but not the Bible. Therefore this comparison is not applicable to the topic.
  4. Preaching is from a place of authority - like behind the pulpit, where the individual has the implied authority granted them of the church/denomination/etc. Sharing the gospel or discussing doctrine one on one in the community has no implied authority - it’s just our personal opinion, for all anyone knows.
  5. TGL…. Could you find a different way to open subjects without ‘just checking’s’, please? We can have a profitable discussion on this topic, but opening the conversation this way always leads to contention.
  6. Nevertheless, it is vulgar and rude and should not be used here. Stop arguing with the mods, Tony.
  7. And there you go again. What’s with the zero to 100 on the aggression factor, Tony? Editing for improper language.
  8. I think your first sentence answers your query. Some observations… You do seem to be giving equal importance to doctrinal and non/doctrinal issues. Nothing against your non-doctrinal choices, but they probably aren’t the first thing to look at in a church. Also, you simply won’t find a non-cultish church where everyone agrees on every everything! Could you, separately, find a community and a church? Although I get it. Speaking as a member of a conservative church that generally shuns the C-vax, I’ve been joking/not-joking for a year about finding ourselves a ghost town to move to. I would challenge you to reinspect some of your doctrinal beliefs, as they may be mutually exclusive. Finding a modest, conservative church that accepts contemporary music and divorce/remarriage seems a contradiction in terms to me. (Not that they should shun you for your remarriage, but that doesn’t mean it was scripturally okay or that you would be eligible for certain ministries.)
  9. One example would be the word 'let.' 2 Thess. 2:7 uses this word with the idea of hindering, while our common modern usage has more the idea of permitting.
  10. That is a very good statement. I agree. I will say that I don't mind going to the original languages to clarify a word that has shifted meaning in English over the centuries. But that's not about not relying on the English translation so much as clarifying my own misunderstanding of seventeenth century definitions.
  11. Wow… that guy was apparently in the wrong religion. He must have thought he was Muslim…
  12. Wouldn’t surprise me. Everyone was trying to beat the mandate. I bet it slowed down now its come into effect.
  13. Say what now? That response was inappropriate. When a moderator corrects you, you do not imply that the response is boring or eye rolling - as that GIF implies.
  14. TGL, sometimes i wonder about you. Are you this cryptic in your real-life conversations?
  15. To be quite frank, the ladies forum isn’t busy either. Although it’s a bit disturbing that TGL tried looking into it…
