  1. According to the following OT verses translating the Hebrew word sheol, sheol is not just the place for the departed wicked, but the righteous will also be there. Sheol, then, is the place for all of the departed dead. Jacob went to sheol - Gen 37:35 -- And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave (sheol) unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him. Sons of Korah (the godly ones whom God used to give us Ps 49) went to sheol - Ps 49:15 -- But God will redeem my soul from the power
  2. Pastor Markle, Thanks for the good post. I have recently preached from Luke's version of this account. Like most Christians I know, prophecy is a favorite topic of mine. May I quibble with one point? Matt 24:15 mentions The Abomination of Desolation. According to Premillennial eschatology, that takes place in the middle of the Tribulation period (near to exactly, depending on which measurement of time you reckon by). That means that everything that occurs prior to v15 is "pre-Middle of the Tribulation" and not "pre-Tribulation." What I find so interesting about that is this: in
  3. This question requires a discussion of sheol/hades and what happened following the crucifixion. [Sorry of this post seems long; trust me, I'm condensing to get to this....] Prior to the crucifixion, sheol (Heb word from OT)/hades (Greek word, equivalent to sheol from NT) was the place of the departed. Jesus describes this place with a great gulf fixed between the righteous ("Paradise") and wicked side ("Hell") in the story of Lazarus in Luke 16. Immediately following the crucifixion, Jesus went into sheol and "lead captivity captive" (Eph 4:8-10). This is when Jesus took "Paradis
  4. That phrase "repentance toward God, and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ" is actually a partial quote right out of Acts 20:21. It is used to sum up the scope of Paul's preaching and teaching. If you want to know what Hutson taught on repentance, he actually has a chapter about repentance you could read in his book, "Salvation Crystal Clear." It's been so long since I've read it, I couldn't begin to come close to any quotations, but I think I'm accurate in that he did not believe that repentance was a work separated from faith in Christ.
  5. John 3:3-4 -- Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus' Teaching on Justification in Soteriology Nicodemus did not understand "conversion." He thought conversion was some kind of external change, that by embracing the teachings of Jesus, one would become a follower of Jesus. After all, Nicodemus considered himself a master teacher. Jesus' statement was clear:
  6. Dr. Rebekah "Beka" Horton died Saturday, June 27. Here is the link to her obituary. While not known as a Baptist, there are few Americans who have influenced the Baptist movement as much as Dr. Beka Horton. She was part of the duo that helped to put Christian schools on the map in America with the A Beka Book Christian School curriculum, and later, Home school curriculum. She, with her husband, started Pensacola Christian School, eventually becoming Pensacola Chrisitian Academy, Pensacola Christian College, Pensacola Theological Seminary, Rejoice radio, and several other ministries, besid
  7. Critical Truths About The Scriptures Everyone Should Know Introduction This message is entitled "Critical Truths About the Scriptures Everyone Should Know." These critical truths will be taught through an historical drama told from the Old Testament. The main characters of our historical drama are little known or not known at all. Allow me to introduce them to you. First, there is the prophet Jeremiah. He is sometimes called “the weeping prophet” because of his tears that he shed over the city of Jerusalem and its citizens. As a prophet of God, Jeremiah experienced very little
  8. Stars & Stripes Forever! Introduction Did you know that our “Stars & Stripes” wasn’t Washington’s official flag as he crossed the Delaware River (regardless of what artist Emanuel Leutze says!)? In fact, in 1776, the “typical” flag was 13 stripes - but the union was the British Union Jack! Or it may have been “Don’t Tread On Me” - a rattle snake on red and white stripes; or perhaps the snake was coiled up on a yellow background. Or it may have been something completely different. So, where does the “Stars & Stripes” come from? Well, have you ever heard of “The Great Sea
  9. Hey, Bro Matt, OK, I've submitted the site. Thanks for the invitation. Dave
  10. Hey, OBF, First, let me thank whoever is responsible for such a fine place. This is really a Cadillac of user sites, isn't it? Second, I found you folks through FundamentalTop500 just in the last week - my site was just picked up there. Third, a little about myself: I'm an Independent Baptist Pastor in Sunny Central Florida. However, as you can tell from my avatar, I'm not a native Floridian! I'm in a relatively small town way off the coastline; it's more like "South Georgia" or "South Alabama" really than Florida. There's nothing "touristy" about where I live - and we're 30 minutes from
  11. Hey, All, I'm interested in seeing what other Fundamental Baptists are using for their primary computer Bible studies. I have a definite preference (which I'll not reveal here...). One of my ministries is formatting public domain resources for Bible students. If I can do so in the most popular Baptist programs, then I can increase my ministry. So, what do you use as your primary study program(s)? (I utilize two of them, but one is my "main" resource.) Please don't select all that you've tried; just mark the ones that you use every day (or perhaps every week). Dave
  12. I have available several great study resources on The Tabernacle and Jesus Christ from a conservative, Bible believing doctrinal standpoint. They are formatted for eSword and The Word. They include: Louis Talbot - Christ in The Tabernacle John W. Lawrence - Five Warnings of Hebrews Henry Soltau - The Tabernacle, The Priesthood, and The Offerings H.C.G. Moule - Hebrews Harry Ironside - Lectures on the Levitical Offerings (Lev 1-7) (this module will be ready prior to August, 2010) Adolph Saphir - The Epistle to the Hebrews, Vol 1 (this module will be ready prior to August, 2010) to download
  13. Hey, Y'All, I should have mentioned that there is no magic, nor any magicians in it. No wizards, nor spells. There are some giants, giant creatures, and even dragons. However, no magic. The main character is a young man named Josiah who is saved early in the first volume. Josiah struggles through the rest of the volumes as he learns to serve King Emanuel. We've sheltered our boys from "wizards, magicians, Harry Potter" etc., so there are absolutely no doorway issues here. Those doorway issues won't come from Dunlop; they'll come from somewhere else. Ed Dunlop is a published author thro
  14. Hey, Y'All, Baptist missionaries to Tanzania (who happen to be childhood friends with my wife) put us on to this series. They have 4 girls, and loved it. So it came highly recommended to my family (3 boys - no girls). Well, we started into it, and the boys never wanted us to put it down. We've read almost a chapter every night for the last 6 months (7 volumes, each volume just under 200 pages). The stories themselves are quite riveting; but the allegorical truth is what is so exciting and refreshing. Ed Dunlop is a fundamental Baptist, and you can tell while reading this "children's" ser
