  1. Whatever they've done with music by Sovereign Grace and the Gettys, they must have arranged it in a way that's not contemporary. That's a good idea though--to write and let them know that it makes it look like they approve of CCM. I'm sure if they thought that, they wouldn't have those songs in the hymnal. Mrs. Hamilton just wrote a book on why she doesn't listen to CCM, and they have plenty of other resources on their website about not listening to contemporary music. So, I know they wouldn't have it in their hymnals if they thought it would lead people to CCM.
  2. Happy Birthday, Bro. Matt!

  3. Does anyone know of a picture/painting of a city on the edge of a cliff, with the broad way to destruction theme? I've seen one of Quebec City and (I think) one of another city. I'd like to get one of those pictures because it reminds me of how serious it is that people need Christ. Does anyone know who makes a picture like that, or where to get it?
  4. Do you think 1 Corinthians 15 supports a pre-Tribulation Rapture? I heard a preacher speak on it, especially on verse 23, but don't remember exactly what he said about it.
  5. I've thought about that before. I wouldn't give out a card with NKJV because people might think I approve of all the NKJV. My mom and I used to read that version, and I thought there was nothing wrong with it because it's from the Received Text, just like the KJV (other modern versions are from the critical text, I'm sure you know)... but there are some little changes that can make a big difference, especially if people aren't careful to read the context. So, since I trust only the KJV, it's all I would give out. Something like "Jesus came to save you" might be safer because it doesn't claim to be God's Word. It's a paraphrase just like hymns. Col. 3:16 says to speak with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs... I'm assuming the hymns and spiritual songs aren't in the Bible, but just based on Bible truths. It's getting harder to find good cards (especially since "happy holidays" is so popular now), but you can always write in your own "Christmas verse." :)
  6. Welcome, and I'll pray for you and your children.

    We haven't done deputation yet (today we came to Texas to practice Spanish for the mission field), but we hope to start in March in Alaska. We've talked about BIMI, BMM, and some other major mission boards, but think we'll go with my home church's board, Reach International Ministries (www.reachmyworld.com). Thanks for asking!
  8. My husband and I were married in August, and are preparing for missions in Peru. We live in Alaska for now, but we're leaving for southern Texas next week to practice Spanish and hopefully witness to Mexicans. We should be able to go on deputation next year. We enjoy witnessing to people, and I feel burdened especially for those who believe in works for salvation. Please pray for us as God does His ministry through us! "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." ~ 2 Cor. 4:7 Blessings, Kayla Trowbridge
  9. I don't think there's anything in the Bible that says he shouldn't be a pastor. He just wouldn't have the personal experience for marital counseling like married pastors have.
  10. "The cause of fornication" is in the context of a Jewish betrothal. Several sources I've heard about Jewish customs say that a man and woman would be engaged, so to speak, yet call each other "husband" and "wife" for a time (approx. 1 year). The man would prepare for the upcoming marriage during the betrothal period, and during that time he could legally put away his wife. "Fornication" in the Bible refers to premarital immorality, while "adultery" refers to extramarital immorality, including divorce and remarriage. "Saving for the cause of fornication" is often thought of as the exception clause, but it actually doesn't provide any exception. If a man has "put away" his wife, he has sinned, and his ability to lead others would be very questionable. However, it could be that the wife left him for spiritual reasons, as in 1 Cor. 7:15: "But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace." I'm not sure whether that would allow the man to take a place of spiritual leadership in the church, as there might be greater temptation for him, but at least he has not sinned. After divorce, if either person remarries another spouse, it's adultery. (Does that mean that they are really still married in God's sight?)
  11. I understand why you would be concerned. However, many things can be used for good or evil. I tried to avoid everything that's been used for worldly purposes, but found out there are too many! 1 Corinthians shows that even meat was being used in pagan worship. I'm not justifying compromise with the world or listening to music like CCM, because those things can't glorify God; but if there's something that can be used for God's glory, we should use it!
  12. Because God preserved it through translators who cared about the Bible.
  13. Because it lets us know what the original text said (esp. with words in italics).
  14. Because it keeps the integrity of the words so there's no confusion about the meaning. Instead of changing the words to fit the time, we just go back to the original meaning!
  15. Because it was translated word for word (not by thoughts).
  16. Thanks! I've never seen a custom radio station before. Have you listened to Old Christian Radio online?
  17. Are you looking for Samuele Bacchiocchi's quote from the book From Sabbath to Sunday? I found some websites that might have what you're looking for, but I don't know if we're allowed to post websites on a forum. Hope that helps!
