  1. Good post, Dave. I have to deal with Roman Catholics and Protestants on a daily basis in the real world. Why is it that "Online Baptist - An Independent Baptist Community since 2002! (Note the explanation mark at the end of the name of the site, shows excitement) allows Protestants with their false views, run rampant on this forum. However, IFB's are silenced as we contend for the faith? I just don't understand. What pains me is the number of IFB's who have left the site, for this very reason, and don't intend to come back. This site has slowly gone downhill, since I was on it years ago, and keeps riding that slippery slope. The "falling away" is one of the explanations that I have for this. It just baffles me to see this happening on the site that taught me many things, years ago. SMH
  2. I am amazed at some IFB's who don't know this, Linda (or at least claim they don't know it). If someone who was raised in the RCC for most of my life, knows what it is, then an IFB should know it. Maybe a Protestant doesn't know, but I hope they would come to realize what it is. You gave a very good explanation. Thank you for re-posting it from the other thread that Happy Christian locked. Shalom, sister:)
  3. Reformed is reformed, GP. It is as simple as that. If I wanted to be reformed, I would walk myself to the little reformed church down the road from me. They are all over my area. No thanks. No comment. You have an answer for everything, HC. GP already told me what I have heard about Ruckman. There is no need for me to start a thread on him. Bravo, sister!
  4. GP, my in-laws have his cassette tapes from the 1950's. I used to listen to them before I got saved. Those tapes planted many seeds in my heart. Also, b/c of his book on "Marriage, Divorce, and Re-Marriage" I would have never married my husband. My husband read that book. That is why we are married, b/c he questioned whether or not to marry a divorced woman ( with a young child), even though I wasn't saved in my first marriage. And, had I stayed in that marriage, my ex husband would have murdered me. My hubby and I have been married for 13 1/2 years. OBviously, Ruckman has a special place in my heart b/c of that. I think it is ridiculous of IFB's to get into these arguments about men of God. People argue over David Cloud, as well. Do the "home grown" IFB's (born into the faith), have any idea how blessed they (you) are? I came out of the King of Cults, the RCC. For goodness sakes, this arguing about men of God is terrible. People in other faiths hear IFB's bickering OBout these men from their pastors in the pulpit on Sunday morning. How is that glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ? And, how do IFB's look to the rest of the world. What a shame. *sigh*
  5. Well, the whole thread should have followed Jeffrey's first post. It was about the KJV preceding Ruckman. Your second post sounded like you wanted to stifle anything about Ruckman re: the KJV. Should I start a post on why so many IFB despise Ruckman? I really want answers. Reformed Theology is downright un-Biblical, HC. Anything reformed is Protestant. If any IFB is subscribing to Reformed Theology, they are in big trouble, with doctrine. Dr. James Beller's Book, "The Coming Destruction of the Baptist People" talks about the difference between evangelicals and fundamentalists. It is an excellent read. It is at the door, already. It is part of the "falling away." I am a proud fundamentalist. That is why I came back to OB, because I thought it was fundamental not evangelical. Like I have stated, on numerous occasions, I don't have a prOBlem with people who come to OB to learn more about the IFB faith, however, they should be taught the fundamentals of the IFB faith. However, that is not the case on this site. I do not want to be associated with evangelicals, who are charismatics, putting all kind of un-Biblical garbage on Facebook. Not many IFB's are discussing the KJV on Facebook, either. IFB's tend to keep the gospel to themselves, when Facebook is the perfect opportunity to share the gospel with the lost. The charismatics and the Messianic Jews (law keepers) have completely taken over Facebook. Something is wrong with that, when IFB's don't contend for the faith. OB is the last place to go, and sadly it has gone drastically downhill b/c of Reformed Theology.
  6. Okay, now you have made it clear. Thank you. Regarding the KJV and Ruckman? You put in one small post about Ruckman. You said, he doesn't belong in the pulpit. I asked if it was because of his many wives and you said that is part of it, but you didn't want to derail the thread. I am being serious. I would like to know why many IFB's despise Ruckman. Please lay it all out for me. That is all I am asking. Of course Baptists aren't Protestants. That was the first thing I learned in my IFB church. I am talking about the Calvinists, who frequent an IFB site, with an agenda.
  7. Many sarcastic comments on OB ARE belittling LuAnne. So, those are the rules? If someone reports a person three times, they are automatically banned? That was never specified in the rules on the forum, when I signed up years ago? Then, how come others are banned immediately? I am talking about the SDA people? I don't mind that they are banned, but rules are rules. Also, you didn't say anything about Peter Ruckman. This thread was about him and the KJV. Of course the KJV preceded Ruckman. You posted, after Jeffrey's first post, that you didn't want to derail the thread, when in fact the whole thread was about Ruckman. I just followed your lead, as not to cause friction. I should have persisted in knowing more facts. I would like to know why Ruckman is hated so much by IFB's. Like I said, I think I know why, but I would like it laid out for me. Years ago, I never got any specific answers from anyone in the anti-Ruckman camp. And, as I said before, I am not in anyone's camp but that of the Lord Jesus Christ. Protestants, who believe in Replacement Theology is a huge prOBlem on OB, HC. RP is a totally un-biblical thing and shouldn't be discussed on an IFB site. Yes, I plan on following his blog. Thank you.
  8. Yet sarcastic comments are allowed on OB? What's the difference? IFB's are dropping like flies on a once IFB site. This site has been turned over to Protestants. How is anyone that is an IFB supposed to learn more from strong people in the faith like Dr. Ach? I believe this thread never talked about Peter Ruckman and the KJV, except the first post made by Jeffrey, because so many IFB's have a prOBlem with Ruckman.
  9. Thanks, HC. I want to pass this information on to my BIL and SIL. I wish I would have known families that were home schooling while my son was growing up. Although, that would have been another battle with my ex husband.
  10. I love trout and I really love Cracker Barrel.
  11. While I didn't find it funny, my hubby might. He also loves the 3 Stooges and Abbott and Costello, too.
  12. That is so horrible to hear, HC. Praise the Lord the boys were saved! I can't imagine what the parents are going through. This is a parents' worse nightmare. I will keep the family in prayer. Yes, God is good as in the boys got saved before they passed away. Just prayed for the family of the boys and the situation.
  13. Can someone other than the parent, home school a child? There are so many parents out there who work full-time jOBs, and can't be home to school their child. What about those parents?
  14. While I agree with this, there is a Jewish sect that lives in Arab countries. They hold only to Torah. They believe the Talmud is man-made and they are correct. I laugh when I hear what they say, b/c even though they are unsaved, and only have half the Bible, they sound like IFB's. They say, "G-d (God) says it in His word, and I believe it."
  15. Yes, that is what I have been taught through the Bible. This whole "one from the land and one from the sea" is traveling around Facebook. However, it is charismatics saying that, so I do consider the source. That is what I have come to believe, HC. Many people believe he will be a political man. It makes me wonder if he be ruling from the USA, because of how corrupt our political system is. I agree that he will not be well known. Agreed about the Jews. The majority of Jews are well aware of the Vatican and the bloody history that goes along with the RCC, in regards to Judaism. Well, not to mention the Baptists, too. Thank you for making me aware of what Daniel says about Greece. I know what it says about Rome, but not Greece. Yes, that is so true about people being able to trace their genealogy. We have the Mormon genealogy site and others like it like "Ancestry.com." The Jews even have a sophisticated site called "Yadvashem." It is a DNA site. A person can even find out, through DNA, what kind of illnesses your body will suffer in the future. That's something I surely do not want to know. LOL! What good would it do me anyway?
  16. I really think he is for peace, too, HC. I always believed that John Paul II was for peace, as well. Many people are calling Francis the False Prophet, but I don't believe that is the case. They are going along with the prophecies of Malachi Martin. Martin talked about visions and dreams, and that is totally un-biblical in this age. I believe he talked about the 112 pope being the Anti-christ. It sounds much like Nostradamus to me. I believe the Anti-christ will have knowledge of all world religions. The unsaved world will fall for his talks of peace, for the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. He will have to really fool the Jews, as well. I am more prone to believe that the Anti-christ will come out of Economic Babylon, which I believe is the USA. I don't think it is a coincidence that the USA is never mentioned in Biblical prophecy when every other nation is. Maybe, I am reading between the lines. However, the Anti-Christ will have to fool the Jews. I have been hearing about a Syrian/Jordanian Jew for years. I have a Facebook friend who is saved. She was saved out of the RCC, but she spent much time in the Greek Orthodox "church" as her deceased husband's family was from Greece. She spent every summer in Greece for 33 years. She has a lot of knowledge on the Syrians. She listened to their call to prayers, daily while living in Greece and also associated with them when they would come to Greece. Could a pope be the False Prophet and the Anti-christ a mix between Judaism and Islam? I dunno. Some people are also talking about two Anti-christ's (one being from the earth (a future pope) and the other being from the sea. Has anyone heard this before? I just don't know what to think.
  17. I haven't figured out what we are having yet. Joe didn't give me the menu before he left for work this morning. I have to call him to find out what he wants.
  18. If I was saved at a younger age, I would have chosen homeschooling for my son. He even begged me to home school him at one point. It broke my heart. I had to work or we wouldn't have been able to survive. I was a single mom, from the time my son was 2 until he was in the forth grade. He attended Montessori School, from Pre-K to 2nd grade. His dad paid the tuition, and I paid for day care costs. Thankfully, mom my was able to watch him once a week, then my MIL, when my mom became feeble. Even in a good public school system, like the one my son attended and the one that his dad, me and my husband attended, is still questionable. It is government run. That alone is a red flag. I just had this conversation with one of my husband's brothers and his wife on Father's Day. I told them that the whole public school system is in the toilet (yes, even in model schools, or Blue Ribbon schools as they are sometimes called.) Their son is 2 1/2. A sister in Christ, at my church, began to home school her children b/c the school system had a teacher that taught her daughter about Islam one year. Yeah, that is the big thing in the public school system where I taught. Anyway, my brother and SIL live in that suburb. I told them the best education is homeschooling. Sadly, since this BIL is backsliden and his wife is a Roman Catholic (non practicing, unless she is pressured by family - then she goes to Mass) their son will most likely go to Parochial school. As was said above, there are so many groups that home schooled children can attend so that they are not isolated from other children. Maybe, someone can tell TGL about the various home schooling options that are out there. I know of Abeka, ACE, and Hooked on School House.
  19. When my dad's Irish ancestors were coming from Ireland to the USA, some of them decided not to make the trip and settle in Australia instead. They owned lots of land. However, my family never recovered it, b/c they had to claim it within 7 years. They found out years later about the crowd that decided to stay in Australia. Anyway, the crown took it.
  20. In all seriousness SFIC, I thought the same thing when I saw this. This woman made things worse by putting out this video about the Vatican. Many people, except the Roman Catholics (and even some of them are coming to know that the Vatican lies) understand how the RCC operates. This woman with her phony video, did the case for "true" Christianity a disservice.
  21. "Wifey?"... LOL, Larry. Sometimes my hubby calls me that. He means it with affection, as I am sure you do.
  22. Yeah, this is a hoax. A Facebook friend had it posted on her wall, while ago. She swears by this woman who did the the video. It is not accurate, at all. HC gave a great explanation as to why.
  23. My hubby and I play Scrabble too, HC. Tonight's Supper: Stir fry
  24. At one time my brother's son was going to train for the Australian Navy. He is in the US Air Force now. He has chosen a career in the military.
