  1. "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:" - Psalms 66:18 "Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth." - John 9:31 Friend, what is your testimony?
  2. I've been blessed beyond words that my local church teaches doctrine. If only some of my family would listen, they do not have ears to hear with.
  3. I wouldn't say that they are backslidden, I would say that they are false converts and have no wisdom. I'm backslidden and have been backslidden but no way is TD Jakes or Oprah or Jeremiah Wright going to seduce me into following them. One could argue that the perpetual babes are backslidden because they refuse to obey and learn and if so, are their names really in the lamb's book of life with that kind of fruit? In John 10:27 the Lord says, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:"
  4. "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." - 2 Timothy 3:1-7
  5. Why do you care? Why are you here? What did you do to get into heaven?
  6. I spent three weeks in the hospital because of the Wuhan Flu and am not foolish enough to get the gene therapy shots. Tried warning my parents and sister and now my sister has a softball sized mass around an ovary. My father who was very healthy with great stamina, is back in the hospital again likely due to the spike proteins wreaking havoc on his body from prostate cancer, shingles, 2 pulmonary embolisms and some brain infection. He has not had Covid and we all know that those shots are like magnets for it and he's in a hospital overwhelmed by Covid patients because they won't pass out HCQ or Ivermectin and let them recover at home. No, I'm immune from the Wuhan Flu and all of its variants (they differ less than 3%) for at least a year and probably for eternity. The folks who got the last Coronavirus about 17 years ago are still immune. There's no need to subject my broken down body to those gene therapies after the Lord shed his grace on me. The Wuhan Flu is not Polio, it's a man-made biological attack on mankind by lost, evil people bent on enslaving the world to usher in their utopia.
  7. There's an undeniable fact of life that I learned from El Rushbo, liberals are liberals first. If they are a doctor or policeman or call themselves a Christian, when their ideological views are challenged, they do an about face and fall back onto liberal beliefs. Liberalism is an emotional pursuit. Liberalism is the default position of the ignorant. One doesn’t have to do anything to be a liberal. As part of original sin every child begins life as little liberal narcissistic sociopaths as the “terrible twos” bear witness to. Toddlers instinctively know how to lie, cheat, manipulate and do the meanest things to get what they want. Liberalism creates a bubble, an alternative reality based on how the liberal wants to see the world, not based on reality, to shield itself from alternative viewpoints. In rebellion against God, the liberal’s life is destructive by nature for their god is their belly as the liberal lives a life of materialism. Not grounded in biblical principles, un-disciplined in thought and possessing non-contiguous beliefs the liberal’s viewpoint is easily swayed not by logic, which the bubble blocks out, but by emotion.
  8. No. This American government is not legitimate. These are not "vaccines", they are gene therapies. They are deceiving and being deceived, calling evil good and good evil. I spent about three weeks in the hospital this year because of it, my wife and children all had it. We have the anti-bodies and have no need for any kind of shot related to the Wuhan Flu. My father and sister got the shots, they are both now in the poorest health of their lives, both requiring surgery very soon. There's no need for anyone to take the gene therapies for a virus with a 99% survival rate. This whole charade defies common sense.
  9. Bill, it's been many years since I've studied this topic and my memory is not what it once was to give you lots of quotes. But if you are interested, these are some of the resources I used and these are all available for free in .pdf format. https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/what-every-christian-should-know-rock-music.php https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/satanic_attack_on_sacred_music.php https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/rock-rolls-war-against-god.php https://www.wayoflife.org/pdf/Church-Music-Standards-and-Training-Course.pdf
  10. Miss you Brother John!

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. I'd like to read of old time writings of man justifying the use of the title for pastors.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. tickles their ears! Saved people have the Holy Spirit to guide them towards truth, Jesus Christ and his New Testament Churches.
  22. Howdy! Seems like you're good with a paint brush. Care to tell us a little about you and your family and your testimony?
  23. 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.
