  1. I know that he used to be a somewhat "popular" Youth Conference preacher among some IFB churches many years ago. An IFB church that we once were members of (in the mid-90's) tried to get him to come to one of the Youth Conferences. I didn't know he was now in the SBC.
  2. On Saturday, August 10th, 2019...my Dad passed away from this life into the loving rest of Jesus Christ.

    This was also my dear wife's birthday. Though he hasn't known who I was for several years, he still had the same loving and happy disposition as before. 

    I count myself blessed to have been the son of this great man. He was my teacher, my inspiration, and my hero...he was...

    ...my Dad.

    Dear Lord, thank you for allowing me to be his son.

      Oh, NoNi - I am truly sorry for your loss, but so thankful you know where he is. And I'm thankful you have the memories that you do.

      Hey brother, I will be praying for you.

      Another friend of mine's dad went to be with the Lord last Wednesday - another great saint unrecognised by most, but known by the Lord, a faithful servant of the Lord.

      These are the ones who many never hear about but who faithfully serve the Lord, not for the recognition of men, but for the glory of the Lord. Men like these will hear those words "Well done thou good and faithful servant.."

      Thank you all.

  3. I haven't looked at these second round of links...the first group was enough. I don't mean to be harsh, but these "devotions" are full of secular reasoning which appeals to the masses. I could only shake my head in amazement at what was being promoted. It's no wonder this author is gaining in popularity (I don't know if he is or not...I'm just going by the OP). He might want to do a study on the significance of the "thee, thou, shalt, etc." significances before putting them down. So sad. God puts much more reverence upon his word than this author... (Psa 138:2 KJV) I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. This author promotes his own name and his "best selling" books, yet God says that his word is magnified above ALL thy name. Why teach others about what the Bible teaches when you admit that you believe there are errors in every translation?
  4. Well...actually the Bible does give us somewhat of a physical description... Revelation 1... 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. I have to admit...I've never seen a picture drawn, a statue sculpted, or a painting rendered that depicts the Lord Jesus Christ with snow-white hair.
  5. Hooray! I was keeping quiet...watching and waiting to see if anyone might bring that up. Cherubims on the mercy seat...they were certainly created, yet God had them specifically "graven". Not to mention the somewhat overlooked teeny-tiny "graven" (from twine) pomegranates that were part of the high priest's garment. Pomegranates were certainly created. Not to mention the laver that sat upon 12 "graven" oxen... Not to mention... I'll be quiet now.
  6. I believe it was a plague...that's it. I don't mean to sound like a smarty-pants...I simply believe it was a plague. All of the 10 plagues sent on Egypt don't fall under the disease/pestilence categories (unless I misunderstand the meaning of pestilence), and unless I misunderstand the final plague, it brought death without disease.
  7. With all due respect, the "plague" and its description is given in verse 5 of Numbers 25. "Plague" has different meanings other than a disease. The sin that they were guilty of was worshipping a false god...
  8. Whoever came up with that "What's the best nation in the world" picture...deserves an award! That's just too hilarious! For those who may be unaware, DaveW and I had a "Prosperity Preacher Battle" some time ago...this is just a rekindling of that thread. Here Dave...this is for you, my friend...I might be wrong, but I think he was saying, "DaveW, DaveW, DaveW!"
  9. Oh dear...I give up. I'll say this...MJW is interesting. Carry on.
  10. So...you didn't read the next two verses then? We can all be one-verse ponies if we want. Here's one for you...after reading this, I would expect that you... 1. Don't touch anything 2. Don't eat or drink anything 3. Don't use your hands for anything Colossians 2:21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; There it is in black and white. It says what it says. Do you believe it?
  11. Didn't "someone" here have a nervous-jerkdown and whine about someone bearing false-witness against him? Yet, you wrongly accuse me by insinuating my words allude to this silliness? How about an actual link to the book and author so that we can see where you're deriving your information. Are you a Jehovah's Witness or Seventh Day Adventist?
  12. That was your reply/response/question to John's following quotation... Why can't it simply refer to Mary's womb? It can't, because it's referring to the fact that BEFORE Christ ascended to heaven, he first descended into the lower parts of the earth to set free those who were kept in Abraham's bosom. No it isn't. You may want to do a word study on what all "the lowest parts of the earth" can (and does) refer to. However, I will tell you this...not once does "womb" get mentioned. No it doesn't. The word "pit" refers to the current situation that they had "dug themselves into". They were in a bad situation due to their rebelliousness. They had dug themselves into a pit. Read the previous chapter, and you'll clearly see why it refers to their situation and NOT to a mother's womb. That has nothing to do with physical sleep, nor does it have anything to do with physical death...both are referring to spiritual truths. The lost are "asleep" in their lack of concern for salvation...they are dead in their trespasses and sins. However, Christ will give them light if they will see their situation and turn to the truth of the gospel. Let me ask you a question. When the Bible says that Christ is the cornerstone of the church, does that mean that he's literally a large stone that was set as the corner of a building? Jerry has already answered you on this, but I would like to ask you to read the next two verses. They explain what is meant by "the dead knowing nothing"...which Jerry explained. The clue to what this verse means is...in the verse itself. You should have underlined and emboldened the word "because"...because there's the meaning. Due to the fact that our life span on earth is like a shadow, we know "nothing". Read the previous verses and following verses. Job is imploring to seek wisdom from the fathers. It is fascinating; on that, I can agree. However, those are all Old Testament passages which show how God spoke to men at times back then.
  13. Totoo, I haven't been able to remember nor find the source that I mentioned earlier. I'm sorry. Like Alan, the thing that helped me the most as a new Christian was time alone in the Bible...allowing the Holy Spirit to teach me. I remember those days with such love. Aside from that, one book that really helped me as a new Christian was "Wilmington's Guide to the Bible". A fellow believer (and his family) gave me that book back in 1990, and it was truly a blessing. Though Wilmington may not be considered to be in the same exact lines of belief as Independent Fundamental Baptists, his work in that book (at that time) was very sound. That book is like a simplified college course in Theology. I've tried to find it for free online so that I could send you the link, but all I can find are just a few pages...which are of no help. All that I can attest to is the book that I have from back then. I do know that there has been SEVERAL revisions since then, so I don't know anything about the newer versions. I would be willing to send my copy to you, but I don't know how China handles things like that. Do they inspect packages that are sent by mail? Would you be arrested if you received such an item that is based on the Bible?
  14. Thank you Jordan. When I began Andersonville, I wanted to study languages, but I chose Theology instead...I won't go into why. I hope to take languages in the future.
