  1. Listened to some of your sermons yesterday. Such a blessing. Thank you
  2. Thanks Alan, appreciate it. I have never heard of any of these that you have mentioned. Will definitely look into these. My home church is 1000 kms away so and my wife and I are probably the only KJB believers in our town. Though I tell the truth to anyone who will listen none do these days Appreciate your candor Brother Scott
  3. Mind messaging me a few names that I can check out?
  4. Sadly for us who do not reside in the States where the KJB and IFB are strong we only see those in the limelight and on the web and I must say that it doesn't paint a pretty picture. I am blessed though that I have enough understanding and knowledge now that I can ignore it and sift through for what I need. So far I have only found one consistent online preacher who does not play that game.
  5. Haven't been on here in years but I can tell you from an outside perspective (foreign) that the constant in fighting, slandering, and arrogance of most IFB pastors is what is killing the KJB only to a certain degree.
  6. Not mad, don't get mad about doctrinal differences anymore. I do believe they are one and the same - different sides to the same coin if you will. I just like people to back up there statements with scripture. And yes, the entire bible does fall in line and though there were differing methods to people getting saved in the beginning chapters of the NT I understand the why and how so agree that this discussion will lead no where.
  7. So you are saying we can only be saved by Jesus's "gospel of the kingdom"? If you are we have a problem. It's very easy to throw thinly veiled insults and vague references to doctors and sheeple without actually giving evidence to your one salvation gospel. How I really hate it when people throw things out there as if it's THE truth and never giving scripture to back it up. They have the energy to type out hyperbole but never the energy to put in some scriptures to back up there claim. Give me some scriptures and then maybe we can continue this dialogue in a friendly and edifying manner.
  8. Here is a question: Which gospel saves? Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom: Mat_4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, Mat_24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Mar1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; Mar_1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God In Acts 15:7 we see salvation being of two parts
  9. Hi All - thoughts on the below? Paradigm shifts, science and Systematic theology Theology Logos = Word and Logic Theo = Relating to God or deities Systematic In accordance to a fixed plan or system (structured, logical, orderly) – methodical (a systematic or established form of procedure) Therefore Systematic Theology is the ordered, logical, rational study of God and His character and nature as revealed to us through his Word. The original idea behind systematic theology is based on certain assumptions. Assumptions being “a thing that is accepted as tru
  10. So is everyone else, including those that don't believe LOL I just find it amazing how we all give Him the glory in hindsight. It is our decisions and actions that get us into touble and then get us out of trouble (or keep us in trouble LOL) And yes it is being honest. I am not going to pretend I like Him when I can't stand Him any more. But then you lot wouldn't understand a crisis of faith if it came and slapped you in the face - you're all perfect little IFB's. Take a look arround you. Our "Father" gave this world to the devil and us with it. We are all "JOB's" in one form or another being
  11. Amazing how we have been taught of God being like a "father". So what have I learnt in my 40 years on this earth? Not much. But in the last 2 years I have come to realise that I take better care of my 2 yr old daughter than God has ever taken care of His children! Or am I the only one honest enough to say this?
  12. Thanks all. Appreciate the input. Coventer's explanation was more to what I had in the back of my mind. There were many signs and wonders during the period of the crusifiction and ressurection. One has to back scripture with scripture and the one that comes to mind here is: 1Co 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
  13. No it doesen't - Peter (Acts 2:14-21) makes it very clear that the prophecy of Joel was the explanation of what they were currently seeing at pentacost. So where is the "clear" distinction that these would only happen "before the notable day of the lord" if they happened at pentacost and the notable day of the lord hasen't come yet? For almost 2000 yrs now? It's is logical that those mentioned in vrs 19&20 have not come about but I am talking about vrs 17&18 - there is no clear distinction that these have ended nor come to an end. It simply states that this is what would happen in the
  14. So my understanding of it would be correct if I said that that prophecy of Joel's still stands today in our current time?
  15. Here's a question that should pose some interesting debate:D It's got me confused. Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Pentacost - filled with the spirit Act 2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which spe
  16. My thoughts exactly! Was taking a break from the knives and googeling ancient ways (bushcraft) and found it.
  17. I am a firm believer in eternal security, that one can not lose ones salvation. Stumbled across this site this morning: http://prepareforthelamb.wordpress.com/can-salvation-be-lost/ This is a take on losing one's salvation that I have never heard before. Would like your thoughts on this.
  18. I know a wonderful IFB pastor that has a 9 yr old daughter. An American IFB pastor came to our country to start a church, found one allready and was not happy so decided to destroy it. One of the things he did was tell his son (they were in the same school - small town) to tell this pastors daughter that he (the father) was going to burn in hell. This pastor endured many years of this kind of onslaught. I was saved when I was 9 yrs old. One IFB pastor told me and my wife we were not "truly" saved as we gave our lives to the Lord outside of an IFB church. I don't think that I have been uniquely
  19. Sadly, I have only met a handful where it's not the case. So you are right, I won't lump all of us in that pile, just most of us:)
  20. About the best thing I have ever seen written on this site! One of the reasons I left the only IFB church we had was there personal pride in Saturday street preaching and how many souls "they" had led to salvation. When I questioned this I was castigated. When I questioned why the church or God could not take care of my family while I studied full time to be a pastor I was told to go look for my food in peoples dustbins - that it would humble me. Pride and IFB go hand in hand. Man can not save man, God does. God does not pay salaries, man does.
  21. Where in the bible does it say daily repentance is needed?
  22. Like the 10% tithe maybe? Or woman in pants while men still wear woolen jerseys? Or the subversion of woman as a lesser and inferior species? How about kingdom now and prosperity? The list can go on as to how the Word has been misinterpreted by those who should be rightly dividing.
  23. I see that "I am chief" got a little upset with me and then accused me: And then closed the thread without allowing me to justfy my post - Must of gotten "under his skin" in the thread "under the skin" Prov 29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. One verse I quoted - KJB, not me. here's another: Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. I quote his questions: Here's another verse from Jesus Himself: Mat 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and sa
