  1. Howdy! Seems like you're good with a paint brush. Care to tell us a little about you and your family and your testimony?
  2. 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.
  3. Welcome, would you share your testimony with us please? Have you considered moving to serve the Lord in one of his New Testament churches?
  4. There may be all kinds of reasons, carnality, laziness, ignorance, ecumenism, depravity, etc.
  5. Boy are you dating yourself! She was a Destroyer Leader before June 30, 1975! LOL Were you part of the Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Ok. Did you have to do all of those things to get into and remain in heaven?
  10. 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'!
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Hello again. What did you do to get into heaven?
  15. This is why they and everyone else leaves: “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” - 1 John 2:19
  16. When my wife and I were working, the day care center spent more time with our children than we did. That certainly was not enough, nor was the effort we spent undoing over dinner the indoctrination our oldest endured in government school during the day. We sacrificed proper parenting for materialism. Whatever their motivations, it is not wrong to encourage parents to have many children, that's just plain bible. It's obvious that you are disparage this line of thinking with that remark about rabbits.
  17. As for my church, every way you mentioned. Sermons are posted to Vimeo and linked to our website and they also live stream on Facebook. This is done to accommodate our infirm members, those too sick to attend. We started with one screen and then later added two more above the choir loft. No rock and roll stage, a piano on one side and an organ on the other. I think it a great mistake for believers to trade the bible in a book format for one in electronic format. It's hard to grow intimate with the pages when you have none, with the leather when all you have is glass and plastic dependent on electricity. Don't remove the ancient landmarks!
  18. Welcome from America Eustace! Ask your questions to the pastor. As for families, you also can look to the Psalms, that it is a blessing for a man to have a quiver full of children. Children belong to God, we raise them up for Him. Christian churches pushing open borders are no longer following the bible and instead have become useful idiots, pushing one world communism. Without a border and citizenship you do not have a country. The scriptures make clear that nations and citizens are part of His plan since the fall. Without a country, it is impossible to secure the blessings of God for a people. My wife and I love children and she loved carrying them. I was too selfish at the time and we stopped at three. Another bad decision. A few years later the Lord saved me from my sins and I quickly learned that had I leaned on the Lord to provide and not on my own, he would have given my wife and I as many children as He saw fit. The left's destruction of the family by promoting adultery, fornication and the murder of the unborn among other reasons is why we no longer see as normal couples having large families. Both of my parents and my wife's came from large families. And yet, because of abortion, they did not have large families and even some of our siblings survived being aborted! The parents turned around on the way to the butcher and those lives were spared. How wicked and evil a society has become to promote such as normal and an option. I cannot, you cannot afford to have a large family robycop3; but God can supply all that is necessary for a large family if we put our trust in Him.
  19. Show me another perfect, inerrant bible in the English.
  20. I love our church because she is the pillar and ground of the truth. She is the shining city on the hill, whose members with the power of the Holy Ghost restrain sin in our community. She loves the Lord and serves him faithfully in all that she does.
  21. The First Baptist Church of Jerusalem was started on the shores of Galilee when Jesus called Simon Peter and Andrew to follow him. From this point on the local church functioned as the local, visible, church described in the scriptures. "And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him." - Matthew 4:18-20 "Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him." - Mark 1:16-18
  22. Sorry I missed you guys. Around that time I was home nursing my right achilles tendon after falling into a divot in the grass of our new place. Still hurts!
  23. Muzzleloader's use these to remove the sprue from their lead round balls too.
  24. That was an epic journey for sure. Glad you both made it home and are recovering. When were you on the east coast of Florida?
  25. Same here, couple years worth!
