  1. So, recently I began pondering whether Christians should claim a tax deduction for charitable giving, meaning specifically to your local church or other Christ-centered ministry. I don’t mean to suggest it’s wrong, per se. More, I wonder if “we have our reward”, so to speak via the tax deduction. I don’t really have much of an opinion; I’m still pondering this through. What do y’all think?
  2. I like this answer. This topic came up in our weekly Bible study last week. I’m not the leader, but I felt as if some were of the mindset that the cessation of the acts of sin is the actual repentance. I made the point that it is the heart condition of actually turning to Christ, away from sin, that is the core of repentance. I posed the idea that even an atheist can turn from sinful acts, for a variety of reasons. I offered the example that an atheist could stop cheating on his wife due to some sense that it was not respecting her, yet never have any sense that it was offensi
  3. That’s an interesting question. I don’t think there is one, single answer. I think different churches drop the “Baptist” moniker for different reasons. I think for some, yes, there is a certain sense of divergence from traditional Baptist teaching and there may be a realization that the Baptist name no longer really describes their core beliefs...at least, not all of them. For others, even if the actual theology isn’t the reason, I think there is a certain discomfort with being labeled too much. So, they may just be trying to simplify the church’s name. Others may be concerned abou

  5. I can’t say I’d like pickles with mayonnaise, but I do like pickles, in general. I really like the baby gherkins, if I’m going to eat a pickle by itself. On a burger, I like dills. But, I like bread and butter pickles, too.
  6. This man speaks the truth. In fact, I offer my assistance in helping you purge the earth of these evils! I promise that these will be eat...- er, disposed of - wherever I may find them!
  7. Cheese and honey? Has that actually been done...I mean..by real human beings?
  8. Welcome, Izaak! I’m sort of new here, too. Actually, I joined a few years ago but have been absent and recently began posting again. Anyway, take it one step at a time. Don’t fret about the past! Maintain a tender heart of repentance. Again, welcome! Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
  9. I ran into this joke somewhere on the inter-webs: The CIA, the FBI and the KGB argue about who’s the best at catching criminals. The Secretary General of the UN decides to test them. He releases a rabbit into the woods and each of the divisions has to catch it. The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits don’t exist. The FBI goes in next. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest to the ground, killing everything in i
  10. I agree with the pineapple and pizza thing. That ain’t right. It’s like the NIV of pizzas!
