  1. I have a different take on this. Since there is only one race of people, I call it bigotry. Bigotry is hatred which of course is a sin, unless one is hating evil.
  2. It's all "rock-n-roll" as it comes from the same spirit. Where do we find these good secular Christian songs? Scattered amongst secular "records" and radio. Even with good words, the structure of the music with its focus on the beat or rhythm is not bible either. We're not supposed to eat the meat and spit out the bones, we're supposed to practice biblical separation.
  3. Thank you. After my last I went back to the hospital for another 10 days and am still recovering. Spent my 50th birthday in there! LOL
  4. This thing is tough on the infirm, I spent 10 days in the hospital and am home recovering from it still. Prayers for you and yours LuAnne.
  5. James, make sure you aren't harboring any sins. If you are, throw them off and confess them so that the Lord may hear your prayers once again. Like Paul with the splinter in his eye, I've been praying for work for years. It comes and goes along with my health. Treat your job search like a job, working, looking, from 9-5 for example 4 days a week, taking Friday off. During times of increased unemployment, employers are bombarded with applications within minutes of them posting the job and usually never get to the people who respond 4 hours later, let alone two days later. This may require scanning Craigslist constantly during waking hours rather than during business hours. Consider also that the Lord may be wanting you to move or become a missionary and if you're like me, too hard headed to realize it at first, or second!
  6. I'd like to read of old time writings of man justifying the use of the title for pastors.
  7. The doctrine of marriage for the church age is found in 1st Corinthians. Jesus was talking to Jews about their laws during their time which was about to end.
  8. Hi TJ S, In the English language, God preserved His Word in the King James bible. Nearly every other bible traces its roots to the Sinaiticus which was written by Constantine Simonides on the Isle of Mount Athos for his uncle Benedict in the 1840s. None of these modern translations that trace their roots to this fraudulent bible agree with one another. Is God the author of confusion?
  9. It's not always easy to witness to family. I take issue with one of your statements, we are to judge, by the Word of God, not based on our opinions. A saved person has a hunger for God's Word. The Osteens of the world let people honor God with their lips and keep their hearts far from him for they love the things of this world more than the Creator. Keep at it, not all the time but as the Holy Spirit leads and pray every day for their salvation. I had an uncle who lead a life of debauchery and reveled in it and was most vicious towards me when I attempted to share the gospel with him. Then one day he died, and on his death bed, just before he lost his speech, the Lord sent an evangelist to his hospital room and he accepted Christ as his personal Savior and moments later went home to be with the Lord. I was one of many who planted and watered and God gave the increase.
  10. Sadly, that "pastor" needs to get saved as well. That church isn't dying, it likely never was, and certainly is not now one of Christ's New Testament Churches of the kind that Jesus started. We see this all the time sadly.
  11. tickles their ears! Saved people have the Holy Spirit to guide them towards truth, Jesus Christ and his New Testament Churches.
  12. Howdy! Seems like you're good with a paint brush. Care to tell us a little about you and your family and your testimony?
  13. I've done it before and it was wrong. It's not right to eat the meat and spit out the bones. A little leaven, still leaveneth the whole lump.
  14. Welcome, would you share your testimony with us please? Have you considered moving to serve the Lord in one of his New Testament churches?
  15. There may be all kinds of reasons, carnality, laziness, ignorance, ecumenism, depravity, etc.
  16. Boy are you dating yourself! She was a Destroyer Leader before June 30, 1975! LOL Were you part of the Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club?
  17. I didn't give you my opinion as it doesn't matter. What matters is, "Thus saith the Lord". So you were a corpsman? Where did you serve?
  18. That's too bad. If they were saved the bible's way I reckon the Lord said to them, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant". As to your last, I don't think any child can get enough of their parent's attention! We've got an adult child with a child who still demands more time from us than her teenage sisters. I believe that children are a gift from God and they belong to God. We're to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, as many as He wants to give us. If we do our part, He'll provide all that is necessary.
  19. How many of those large families with children in trouble with the law were raised with a mother and father who attended church regularly? It's a little over 24 hours since you answered Matt's question. Can I have mine answered now please?
  20. Ok. Did you have to do all of those things to get into and remain in heaven?
  21. Is this guy still around? “Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.” - Pslams 127:5 How do you square your belief against the Lord's here? It's horse sense to me that when my view contradicts God's Word, it's my view that needs a changin'!
  22. That fellow needs to get right with the Lord and get back into church. We are all placed in this assembly or that one because we also have gifts; not just there to learn. He may have missed the point in what he was called to do and was not firm or clear enough with the folks taking advantage of him. I'll go where I'm called but my thought for him is that he may look into a small church without many members!
  23. These versions you trust are based on the phony Sinaiticus, written in Greece around 1843. It's a complete phony and a fraud and has born rotten fruit ever since. When one is bouncing around from version to version who then is their final authority?
  24. I agreed with all but the last. "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them." - Genesis 2:1 It's generally not true that new things are discovered every year. In most cases the locals knew about them long before the scientists burning up their grant money arrived on scene.
