Brother Rick's Achievements

  1. We went to Tucanos last night... sooo good. TONS OF MEAT.
  2. If we're going to Golden Corral, I'd even eat with Barrak Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. I'll eat with anyone at Golden Corral. That place is awesome. I love Golden Corral. A lot.
  3. I don't really want to meet any of you. I kinda like the whole long distance ambiguity thing. Just kidding.
  4. Brother Rick earned his in a contest. Brother Rick doesn't have to nag. When Brother Rick wants cookies, Brother Rick gets cookies.
  5. Kitagirl sent me cookies once, it would be nice to meet her. Especially if she had some more cookies or cake available.
  6. Hey bro, I was trying to find that David Jeremiah book that you talked about as being a great explanation of the pre-trib/pre-mill position. I found the Escape the Night book, but it doesn't look like a Bible study book as much as a novel, like Tim LaHaye's Left Behind. Can you give me a link? I'm really interested in this book that you spoke of.
  7. I met my wife on a Christian dating site, and we've been married nine years and have four children. We have a wonderful marriage. That being said, I was young, stupid, and obviously very lucky and wouldn't recommend them across the board.
  8. I don't care who it's for, I'm just hoping for an explanation. Proverbs tells us to not even look at it, but here God tells them spend their tithe on it. Let's not get hung up again on the battle about dispensations again, but to explain my position I'll reiterate something. A hyper-dispensationalist will completely cut out everything but Paul's epistles. Anyone with any common sense can tell that is wrong. The church gets in on the spiritual aspects of the New Covenant, and therefore there is much spiritual application to be found in the Old Testament when God is speaking to the Jews on a moral and spiritual level.
  9. For me, it's more about the message than Ron Paul. Sure, there are nice things about him as a person (a doctor who's delivered 4,000 babies, Christian, married to the same woman for like 50 years) but I mostly appreciate that he believes the Constitution like a Christian believes the Bible. The average Christian today just operates by worldly philosophy which changes with the wind, and politicians are the same way. I really wish there were more politicians that treated the Constitution the way they swear to when they took their oath. Ron Paul supporters like me may seem very zealous because we're fed up with the imaginary battles between left and right, Republicans and Democrats - we care about the Constitution. The Democrats boast about defending the First Amendment, and the Republicans are proud of their stance on the Second Amendment - but they both work together to destroy the Fourth Amendment. To us, we see both parties as really not being all that different from each other and we wish more people would wake up about it. I don't mean that disrespectfully; just being honest and I know no other way to put it. So anyways, I voted for Ron Paul knowing he would lose because I support his message of staying true to the Constitution. The Freedom Movement is growing, and maybe we'll see some more Constitutional candidates come out of the Republican party one day. My hope in supporting him is to send a message to establishment that there are still a lot of people out there that believe in the rule of law, by a republic, under and upholding the Constitution of the United States.
  10. Deut. 14:22-26, "Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. 23) And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always. 24) And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: 25) Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: 26) And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household," Okay, so I've never taken a drink in my life and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon. It looks like God told them that if they couldn't make the journey to tithe their increase, to turn it to money and blow it on whatever they want, including grape juice or even fermented wine. Can someone please explain this passage to me?
  11. I agree brother, I never said He wasn't. Christ was going to be crucified one way or another. As far as whether or not God has alternate programs available, it all depends on whether or not God's invatations are sincere or not. It depends on whether or not the God of the Bible forces people to do things, or if He gives them the ability to choose on their own. I believe God means what He says when He says that He is not willing that any should perish. It is against the will of God for people to reject Him and go to Hell. God doesn't force people to reject Him, and Jesus promised that if He would be lifted up all men would be drawn unto Him. If God's offer of a Messiah to Israel was not sincere, and regardless of how Jesus Christ felt about it in the end of Matthew 23 God the Father was still going to force Israel to reject the Messiah, then of course there was no alternate plan.
  12. So? I answer questions that I think are pointless; even repeat myself over and over again. Sometimes this is in response to questions you ask. I have to go now, but if you're going to make a habit of asking questions all the time, which is fine, well, and good, you should be willing to answer them even if you don't see the point or don't like the question.
  13. I agree to a certain degree. The question is, did God know it would happen the way it did or did He make it happen the way it did?
