  1. There is a wealth of Scripture showing that a Christian is to be of a lucid mind that they might think soberly and with the ability to properly discern right and wrong. Even if marijuana is not addictive, and all the other pro-pot arguments, you can not be buzzed and fit the Biblical admonishments to be diligent etc. Therefore it is absolutely OFF LIMITS for a child of God! Side note: a guy recently told the Kentucky legislature that he knows that pot is not addictive, he says he knows because, said he, "I've been smoking it for 30 years!"
  2. It is possible for a member to think they have the best and strongest church in existence and not think that it's because of their presence in it. Ditto for a pastor. If "Pastor A" and "Pastor B" were both equally able in teaching but Pastor A's church search the Scriptures themselves and are doers and not merely hearers. Pastor B has a church that simply absorbs and parrots what they like of the Scripture. Pastor A has a reason for believing his church is spiritually advanced without it taking a level of boasting in his "ability".
  3. I'm familiar with the "recognizing the years of ministry and amount of effort in obtaining the degree" rationale behind "Dr Such an one.... "as an introduction or form of address. I have preached with a few WELL known preachers (some are in glory, some are still here). Not said as a "Well ... check me out" but as a background to my next statement. I referred to them (whether in their presence, away from their presence or to their face) as Brother __________ . I have "been corrected" with, DR __________ . I must confess, however, that it was never by the "Esteemed Dr". All young preachers that I have had a part in training have all been taught the following by me. "Whatever diplomas or degrees you obtain have a place ----- in the same place you keep your important papers (birth certificate, DD - 214, passport, etc.) NOT framed and on display". The apostle Paul had AT LEAST equivalent to a Ph.D. if not a D.D and Th.D in addition. The title brother was sufficient for him so dare we think that it is not an adequate title for us??????? When dealing on the subjects of King James defense, Biblical Archaeology, or the refutation of Evolution then I can see placing your highest degree on your book to lend validity to your text. Highest degree, not the educational prerequisites to that degree! I hate seeing Dr Doodlebug B.A., M.A., D.D. or worse A.A., ThG., B.A., B.R.Ed, M.R.Ed, M. Div., D.D., D.Min (a bit of hyperbole but I have seen some that came close). But in referring to the man outside of his authorship of that given book? Spare us. Heads up --- NO, I WILL NOT be baited into stating my education.
  4. Making contacts now in Central FL for meetings in Jan and Feb 2019, how about sending me a PM with church name and city (unless you don't mind it being in a post instead). Thanks
  5. The founder's dad started the church I pastored in KS. We ran a chapter there for 10 years
  6. H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Put Off Entanglements) is another. It was developed by Rick Carter, Jr. when he pastored in OR. It is now home based at Beth Haven Baptist in OKC, OK.
  7. I know how I would write it (think about putting a loop into a computer program) but I had never thought about doing such until you mentioned it. (Of course, weird runs in the family).
  8. When the serpent said "Ye shall not surely die:" it was not God's word, it was the serpent's. It was neither true nor accurate. However: Gen 3:4 is a 100% true and accurate recounting of the lie and the liar contained within the Word of God.
  9. Wow, are euphemisms so common with you that you don't realize you use them? If Salyan chooses to dig back through your posts and find it, that's her prerogative (although I recall it) -- provided you haven't edited it out to cover your tracks. Makes me wonder if your calling her a liar.
  10. I didn't ask Salyan which word she warned you about, however, I have noticed at least two euphemistic terms which in both cases had the same beginning letter (at a minimum) and same number of letters as the fairly universally used profanity people use in replacement. I can't help but wonder how supposedly mature Christian are unable to express themselves without alluding to profanity.
  11. Note --you claimed you were not allowed to "just post the WORD OF GOD" to which I said ain't so. You didn't ask if you could start a thread with your comments on how they may or may not be viewed. And I think you already know it MUST be KJV
  12. Yes, 66. I was doing three things at once and got sidetracked on Apocrypha (which sometimes gets intermingled within O.T.vs Scripture only and inadvertently excluded N.T. books in my given number. You still haven't given a reference to " Dance Dance, I am the Lord of the Dance said HE " which you stated in such a way as to appear to be quote of the Lord since you said " No , just straight WORD OF GOD verses "
  13. NN asked if it was Apocrypha, you said "No , just straight WORD OF GOD verses". So, you said it is not Apocrypha which leaves 39 books. With that in mind:" Dance dance, I am the Lord of the Dance said He (and thats not me, thats JESUS" give us chapter and verse where the LORD said "Dance dance, I am the Lord of the Dance". Remember, you stated it wasn't from the Apocrypha or other non-Canonical sources.
  14. Yeehaw. Care to show where I stated such I thing? Hint -- I DIDN'T! As I stated before -- NN QUOTED (via "quote" feature when posting) where YOU made the following statement in response to Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. "So don't be fooled by this contrary verse or mistranslation". It was your statement ( So don't be fooled by this contrary verse or mistranslation" ) that prompted NN to SARCASTICALLY ask if you (personally) felt that you (personally) could trust Rev 11 since YOU said (in reference to Mt24) "So don't be fooled by this contrary verse or mistranslation" . Okay, you don't like the way you've been handled? Appeal. To whom? We have two admins. First - JimAlaska. Don't like the previous interaction with him? Go to the Big Dog, the owner of the site, Bro. Matt. If you find yourself banned (don't try to say you will be banned, I said IF it happens) you need to cry to Bro. Matt anyway, not one of us. Incidentally, where were you told you couldn't "just post the WORD OF GOD"? The member with the screen name Omega has been doing that for a LOOONG time.
  15. "So don't be fooled by this contrary verse or mistranslation" This statement was made by Davidjayjordan in response to NN's posting Scripture from the words of our Lord Jesus Christ!!!! If I have overlooked the original post by DJJ, someone please correct and direct me. However, it appears to have been edited out. Fortunately, NN used the quote feature thereby preserving the evidence for posterity and verification. IF, and I do say if, it has indeed been removed by the poster then it shows a willingness to be dishonest in order to disparage NN's stance of the accuracy of Scripture. I realize that typos, letter order reversals, and quick self-proofreading is not indicative of poor grammar and spelling. It is rather disturbing, however, that someone who has 4 years of college would repeatedly eliminate apostrophes, fail to capitalize proper nouns, and have sentences that are as difficult to read as an individual who is struggling to express themselves in a non-native tongue. Another thing that makes the linguistic stumbling seem misaligned with the biographical claims is my impression that Commonwealth natives (and with one elderly Britisher, one young Canadian, and one middle aged [I think] Australian here, they can correct me if I have a mistaken impression) are rather persnickety about their language. A man (Will Rogers) once said, "If you find yourself in a hole, QUIT DIGGING" or you can alter an old phrase to read "Stop now, while you are behind". I was on the verge of locking this thread (and possibly others) . DANGER -- thin ice!
  16. From the OB profile of Davidjayjordan, filled out by Davidjayjordan (emphasis added by me): So, Baptist or not? According to words written by Davidjayjordan (in the course of less than 10 days) No, Yes, No, Yes Wow, and I thought I was like a termite in a yo-yo. Can we go on the roller coaster again Ma? Profile Information Gender Male Location: British Columbia, Canada Denomination Non Denominational IFB? No
  17. The seven years start on this day. Oh, that day passed this year. It starts on the same day on this different year. Oh, passed again. It starts on it on this next year. Hey, hey --- I'm not setting dates, I'm just saying it starts on this date this year instead of the earlier attempts but it's not setting dates.
  18. Aggressive? Yes, I admit it was but you had quoted my post in which I made it clear that it was not the stance of the poster (John 81). This was the context in which you accused an evolutionist of fleeing. As I stated before, IF there is an evolutionist here it will probably be a lurking visitor who may or may not come out of the shadows.
  19. Repeat ---- John was not an evolutionist (secular nor theistic) nor a day/age theorist. He was a member (and prolific poster) for MANY years here. He left and was not run off. Is he still alive? Not really sure. Is he missed here, yes. It behooves an individual to not spout off with limited knowledge (at 70 I would assume that life has taught this. As an individual who professes around 58 years with the Lord, I would think Scripture has taught this)
  20. 1: John 81 hasn't been on here in quite some time 2: He pasted in a "News With Views" article by a Berry, not by John. 3: He never stated he agreed (see post # 2 & 3)
  21. If you find an evolutionist in the house, it will (most likely) be a visitor and not a regular member of OB.
  22. Look, you stated EXACT day /month / year calendar dates. There were math calculation inconsistencies. You didn't ask for theological critique but rather mathematical objections. Now you introduce the idea of numerical (date) ranges after stating emphatic, specific dates. You have not answered the inconsistencies pointed out while seeking to be SPECIFIC and DEFINITIVE in the mathematical projections. I'm done here unless a specific "beginning reference point" and subsequent mathematical functions line up (mathematically) with the concluded dates. You still have a ONE YEAR discrepancy, not the day or two you stated in the last post.
  23. My use of different color font, different size font, italicizing, etc is for emphasis! Please see comments within the above quote (there it is used to distinguish your words from mine). You asked for the math to be examined, that's what I have done (from a mathematical standpoint).
