  1. I talked to my pastor and they used a $50 word press theme. He learned how to do it on wpbeginner.com You could let a young person, familiar with current technology, set it up for you.
  2. I will ask our pastor who they used. A 14 year old boy runs all our video/facebook/live streaming/youtube live, website, etc.! So it can't be too hard.
  3. Do you (whomever wants to respond) think that miracles, signs, healings and prophecy are still occurring today? I know the IFB position is no. But we all know miracles occur everyday. Speaking for myself, I've had quite a few dreams come to reality. Or are things we see now, such as healings, not necessarily healing miracles, but just the will of God playing out? If the will of God is going to prevail regardless, why continue to pray for a healing or miracle?
  4. We're going thru a old testament devotional this year. Yesterday I read Numbers 5 & 6. It got me thinking. Since the Jewish laws for Israel, particularly talking about Numbers 6 about adulteress and the laws for lepers, the tests worked back then. However, shouldn't it be a sign to the Jews now that the old laws are passed away? Or do they just pick and choose which to follow?
  5. I agree, I usually don't read long posts like that. Usually, they're someone pushing an agenda not embraced on this site so I'm always skeptical. However, I read a little of it, now I'll print it to read whole thing later.
  6. Does anyone know of good apps for IFB on iphone apps? I found FBN radio/ music.
  7. Why waste your time reading or writing fiction? Real life is always better than any fiction story to read. I prefer to read printings, books, etc. that are meant to improve my life with Christ and better understand the Bible. Our church is currently going through the Old Testament this year, day by day.
  8. I do believe in miracles. But catholics have to SEE to believe. That's why there's so many catholic "miracles". Was this a catholic building or church?

    You may have already answered this question, in that case, I apologize for asking. But what Bible version do you use the most in your personal life? Or your favorite top 3 versions?

       I generally use the NKJV the most, but I also use the NASV quite often, and sometimes the KJV. However, I STUDY all the versions I can, to gain a better overview of Scripture from an eclectic mix of translators.

  10. If you're still unbelieving, ask God to prove himself to you. ( Mathew 7:7)
  11. A friend of mine who is and has always been IFB, married a supposedly saved man from the church in Indiana, (Hyles). About 3 years ago they married. They courted for 3 full years before marriage. Now he's decides to be a Messianic jew and do all the kosher food and whatever else they observe. Her family thinks he was never saved to begin with to so easily have fallen into their traps.
  12. There's a newer search engine to use that doesn't track and monitor and save all your info like Google does. It's called DuckDuckGo. I've been using it since I found out about it about 6 months ago. I don't get popups like I did with Chrome or yahoo.
  13. Invicta, thanks for the info! Maybe that's what happened with mine. I'll never know but I'll never use a Linux system again until I get a programming degree. ALSO, there's a great new search engine called DuckDuckGo that doesn't save and send your information like Chrome does. No ads pop up either.
  14. Thank you. Yes, your right. They're great parents. On the other side of the family, I have a cousin who had 5 kids, 4 dads. And they were all taken away by CPS rightfully so. The stepdad's teenage son was raping the 10 year old. Very sad. They've all been adopted by other families. But she's not "fixed" and will have another baby I'm sure as soon as she finds a donor. The kids all knew their extended family and were not able to be adopted by any relations because they knew they would see their mother at family functions or knew the mother would find them or the crazy grandmother would. She and the husband and all her kids (5) and his (4) all state aid cases from food to medical and on and on. So truly very different cases. But still similar but at the same time, so different fathers. Both unwilling to financially work to support their own brood.
  15. First, let me preface this with the fact my grandmother's funeral is today and we a lot of family in town. Last night, a few of us got together for dinner at the hotel. I have one cousin and his wife which were there with their 6 kids. And his older son. He was going to go into the Catholic priesthood, but just before that, he learned his girlfriend was pregnant. He had one child with her. He married his wife and they now have 6 small children. However, from what I know is he has never been self sufficient, providing for his family on his own. He believes God will provide. And he does. But a lot of financial support is from his father. Who's current wife is rightfully angry at the fact the grandfather of the 7 kids helps support them and his 35 year old son and wife. They're both great parents, but I'm conflicted of them having more until they can independently support their current family. But it's also not my business and I would never say anything to them.
  16. "A little leaven leaventh the whole lump" (Gal 5:9) Steven Anderson is a lot of leaven!
  17. Our Sunday services are live on YouTube. We have a facebook page and a screen behind pastor with messages and reminders. I think it needs to be shut off during the sermon. I don't think it's needed either. All the news, etc. is in the paper bulletin. Thankfully, people viewing online can't see the screen from the lights hanging above. I'm also one who would prefer everyone use a paper Bible. No one is going to learn the order of books on an e-book. We have one lady who specifically uses an e-bible because she has very bad vision, which is fine. But teens and new believers need to learn the basic placings of the Books of the Bible. Which is not possible if all you have to do is enter the verse and it just pops up. But my pastor puts his sermons on a pad and if the pad's not working, he's lost. And we have to wait for it to load, etc. This is the first church where the preacher doesn't go from an actual book. He should print out his highlights and reference so he's not totally dependent on technology. Nothing better to hear when pastor says "please go to such and such" and you hear the ruffling of pages.:)
  18. I ended up taking two laptops to be fixed by a professional. Thankfully, he downloaded Windows 7 on mine. My husband's already had Windows 7, but wasn't working either. He fixed them both. Now I don't even have to deal with Linux again. I remember using it about 11 years ago and had no problems with it then. Thanks for all the suggestions.
  19. When I first got my iphone 6plus, I stupidly uninstalled Safari because I didn't know what it was. I've tried going to the App store and there's no options for reinstalling it. Any ideas to reinstall it?
  20. I think every saved person has lost friends after getting saved. I didn't when I was saved when I was 22. But I was viewed as weird after salvation and couldn't answer questions about Christianity like I could now. After beginning my current IFB, when I started getting serious with my Savior, my Bible learning and my commitment to church however I did lose friends because I didn't believe in any of the new age beliefs (I never did but I was very vocal about it now). My family gives me the most grief, they're saved but liberal churches.
  21. Yes, I recently used Bionic Beaver also on a computer that said I had no OS. It's free downloads. Although I had to order a disk, since I could't open laptop. Worked fine. Definitely takes getting used to! I hate Windows 10 and have been trying to get my other 2 laptops to download back to Windows 7 or 8.1.
  22. It’s not always a low priority or affairs of the world either. When I first attended my church, I was a lot healthier and mobile than I am now. I did as much as I could. And attended every service. I don’t need to list everything I have done with my church. I’m now married and he’s not in good health either. Especially this year, winter has been brutal in northern IL. The cold is very painful for both of us. Our Wednesday service is not until 7pm. Which for us is late. We go to bed between 8-9pm. Services are recorded and we can watch the next day. A lot of our members are elderly and can’t drive at night also. We need to quit judging so much and assume people don’t love God or isn’t a priority. We don’t know the dynamics of every family.
  23. Why wouldn’t they want to be friends with you after you were saved? Were they saved?
  24. I think the main problem is that those preaching and teaching and leading are not truly saved. Making them unable to tell others about the true joy of salvation. Also, if you’re divorced and you’re questioned about and told people’s opinion they don’t believe in divorce or remarriage. Who would come back to be judged by the PAST? It can’t be changed. The worst thing I’ve experienced with IFB is the judgmentalism of being divorced. Nobody knows what I went thru or how hard I worked to keep the marriage. To be looked upon as a failure and unworthiness to be marry again is heartbreaking.
