  1. Malachi is great. The pilgrim character of the faithful remnant, and so forth.
  2. @HappyChristianDid you ever get to visit/travel a bit in Ireland? fascinating country.... And Northern Ireland....well, in some ways Northern Ireland is as different from the Republic as Texas is from Alaska...
  3. I also find that if I've eaten too much during the intermission, during the next sermon I might start to feel.....a bit....zzzzzz.......:)
  4. @HappyChristianGoodies to eat are nice; but it's the Biblical, spiritual food that really counts for lasting nourishment!
  5. @Jim_AlaskaCertainly feeding the flock is an injunction in Acts 20 which applies particularly to local elders and teachers.
  6. PS: @HappyChristianAs I believe Kitagrl said quite a while ago, double pierced ears are so widespread and imho if some Christian women think similarly of them as did Kitagrl, then if there is no big deal in their minds, there need be no big deal in anyone else's, either. (Or else conservative, Biblical churches can quickly start resembling controlling cults...) 2c...
  7. @HappyChristianI can hear the plonky-tonk already...
  8. @Salyan Seems like cartoons can sometimes convey a serious point in a cheerful way...: pinterest
  9. Be encouraged in your Scriptural, prayerful exercise...
  10. Exhortations to prayer (and indeed to searching the Scriptures) are commendable...
  11. @InvictaTrusting you will be strengthened in the Lord's goodness.
  12. There is also the bondservant analogy, which is inherent in Psalm 40, Messianically: 'Mine ears hast Thou opened', where the Hebrew has 'digged', i.e., pierced.
  13. This book is based on Ephesians 6, I think...
  14. In the end, it's the regular habit of prayer and the Scriptures, I think....
  15. Hi @InvictaGreat you had the device fitted; sounds like you need it. God bless your family.
  16. Sir, Do try to keep well following your doctor's advice; prayerfully, f
  17. Hi @Musician4God1611 So what's the book like? I've heard of it, but haven't read it. Prayer in Scripture can be a very absorbing and profitable thematic study.
  18. @E MoralesWell, what about neckties? I would have thought that earrings are in a similar category as neckties. Policing earrings doesn't make sense in my humble view. PS: Someone mentioned hair; having it quite long at the top and trimmed at the sides can be an option for professional women; very broadly this is the kind of cut that my wife has had for many years; her dyed colour has varied over the years. prettydesigns dot com
  19. Hi @Jordan KureckiI have used the King James extensively for years and greatly appreciate it. I do think that its use has been undermined in some ppl's minds because of some the rather exaggerated rhetoric that is sometimes made about it, lacking in historical accuracy, evincing the response in some ppl's minds: "Well, I can't possibly agree with that statement". Although I don't agree with all it says, James White's The King James Only Controversy has a lot of good points to it.
  20. It's good also to remember that some believers in other countries who operate simple dispensaries in rather basic conditions will often have to make decisions on the basis of limited availability about items for ingestion based on herbs and plants, in places where there is little regulatory regime at all. It would be unwise to try to hold such believers - sometimes veteran missionaries - to what is supposedly "correct and proper" in very conservative local church circles in North America, when the situations they have faced for years are markedly different.
  21. @SureWordInteresting distinction; and I'm reminded of the hymn: 'For ever with the Lord! Amen! so let it be', etc.
  22. Thanks, @BrotherTony! Hymns can indeed encourage; especially if the content has good, Biblical content!
  23. Well, at our Bible class my wife reads Scripture verses and makes suggestions; and it's actively encouraged; and we don't see this as incompatible with the NT. She used to teach as her secular employment; this is a separate context, of course.
  24. Hi Ms @RebeccaGreat new avatar; so does the rabbit have a name?

    1. Rebecca


      Thank you. Her name is Winter Willow.

  25. Thank-you! Here's another, by Charitie Lees Bancroft: ..................... Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea, A great High Priest whose name is Love, Who ever lives and pleads for me. My name is graven on his hands, My name is written on his heart; I know that while in heav'n he stands No tongue can bid me thence depart, No tongue can bid me thence depart. 2 When Satan tempts me to despair And tells me of the guilt within, Upward I look and see him there Who made an end of all my sin. Because the sinless Savior died, My sinful soul is counted free; For God the Just is satisfied To look on him and pardon me, To look on him and pardon me. 3 Behold him there! The risen Lamb, My perfect, spotless righteousness; The great unchangeable "I AM," The King of glory and of grace! One with himself I cannot die, My soul is purchased by his blood; My life is hid with Christ on high, With Christ, my Savior and my God, With Christ, my Savior and my God.
