  1. I'm not too sure about this topic, but I believe it is somewhat like prohibition. Prohibition didn't work, neither does the war on drugs. I don't think legalizing drugs or fighting against them will work AT ALL. I do beleive the solution is much more simple than we think. Win souls. Christ is the one that can transform people and destroy vice and crime in a society.
  2. Medium chedder or pepperjack. Mmmm.... Pepperjack......
  3. I've been going through some tough times lately... I just really cant stand myself.. I need your prayers.
  4. Amen. :Bleh Anywho, I got a type of harp called a Kinnor Link to image: (http://www.magictails.com/abydos/images ... kinnor.jpg) It is based of coins in Jesus time and testified to have been played in the temple in Jesus time by ancient writings. It is rather complicated to learn but makes a beautiful sound. Example of sound: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewwJGIy_ ... annel_page)
  5. Hey, I am planning on doing a Bible study with a good friend on the doctrines of the Bible. We are going to go through many doctrines, including unbiblical ones, and hopefully come out closer to God and better informed. I was wondering if anyone can point me to sites, books, and free resources that could help. Thank in advance!
  6. Hmmmm... Could this present a problem to the idea that man is getting smarter and stronger?
  7. I'd like to thank the Lord for the men and women on this site that pray so faithfully when called upon. It is a real encouragement. :thumb
  8. Acts 5: 25 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. 26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned. 27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, 28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us. 29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. May I ask, does this apply to everything? I've heard from some that we should obey our parents over God in some occasions. (I.E. don't read your Bible if they tell you not too) Or for wives, don't go to church if you're told not to by your husband. I've even heard people say to obey government if they tell you to disobey God, etc. What are we to obey? God's Commandments or man's commandments? Is it rebellious and ungodly to disobey your parents in order to obey a command of God? Is it wrong for you to die at the hands of government like the martyrs of old because you would not simply disobey God? Which authority is highest?
  9. I can vouch for this site. Excellent resources for refuting Evolution.
  10. I find the "KJV is too archaic" argument so hilarious.. Some of the people who make this argument are the ones who would read through a Shakespearian drama and never complain about it's outdated English but insist instead that it can't be updated or it will lose it's poetic beauty!
  11. :ooops Sorry, left those out. I put together the OP rather quickly with the verses of debate in mind.
  12. I'd like church every day like in the 1st century... But that wont happen. Anyway, I don't believe not attending because you cant is a sin. Some people have forgot what the word "forsake" means though. "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." Hebrews 10:25 For full context: Hebrews 10: 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Forsake in the Greek essentially means " to desert:" and the English definition from Webster's 1828 is: "1. To quit or leave entirely; to desert; to abandon; to depart from. Friends and flatterers forsake us in adversity. Forsake the foolish, and live. Prov. 9. 2. To abandon; to renounce; to reject. If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments - Ps. 89. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Ps. 37. 3. To leave; to withdraw from; to fail. In anger, the color forsakes the cheeks. In severe trials, let not fortitude forsake you. 4. In scripture, God forsakes his people, when he withdraws his aid, or the light of his countenance."
