  1. Very true-words that aren't there, yet the idea of the word is present. I agree that God's sovereignty is present in scripture, but I also realize that in that sovereignty, He allows His creatures to choose to receive or reject His offer of grace. Trinity, I generally don't use-rather I use the term "godhead'. Rapture, I use sometimes, but i also just call it God taking His people out.
  2. Sure. For instance, scripture tells us God cannot sin-therefore I limit God on His inability to sin. Since he is, indeed, the very fount and definition of "Good", He could not sin. God has said, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee", therefore I limit God in ever being able to take my salvation away, because to do so would be to forsake and leave me. Therefore He is limited by His own word. As for the other, in obligation, last Sunday I preached that many believers have been taught that if we have enough faith, and ask earnestly enough, God will heal our bodies, however, nowher
  3. Anyone else ever notice the word "Sovereign" isn't in scripture? Yet the word is bandied about like crazy by Calvinists.
  4. I only limit God where He has limited Himself, and never obligate God, save where He has obligated Himself.
  5. This church should have never been involved in a secular mess like doing a production of Annie. I seriously doubt this was an Independent Fundamental Baptist church. Why are you here, to accuse? Get into a godly church that preaches the word of God faithfully, stays out of foolish things like school plays, and just serve God.
  6. My response is in green in the body of the quote.
  7. By my understanding, the whole CCM thing got started in the Jesus Movement under Chuck Smith, I believe, and Lonnie Frisbee. Smith was a saved man, but worldly, while Frisbee was clearly an unsaved drug user who, though his drug-fueled visions and charisma, basically took over the movement until they had to kick him out due to overt homosexuality and other sexual perversions. This was the movement of the hippies, who were drawn in by their "come as you are/stay as you are" idea, Here they incorporated their music into the services, often using established songs that added the name of Jesus int
  8. Zechariah 14: "1Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount
  9. Appreciate that, brother, but that was pretty short notice in that case. But I will definitely let you know.
  10. 1: I never said the church has taken the place of Israel-they remain in their place. 2: never said all Jews will be saved, however, more than the 144,000 will be saved. After all, who do you think they are witnessing to? As well, the events of Zechariah tell a different story, in that Jesus will return bodily to Jerusalem and those alive in the city will believe and be saved.
  11. Probably baked chicken tonight. Been off food since Saturday when I got quite sick-was better by Monday, as in, I could get out of bed and function, but haven't been terribly hungry. Better today, so I can see some chicken. We rasie chickens and collect our own eggs, and often don't refrigerate them; the problem here is it is very dry and the eggs will dry out pretty quickly-I lost a few dozen that way recently, just dry in the shells.
  12. Agreed, the whole point of street preaching is to get folks saved, not to preach sins to believers. Save that for church service!
  13. Well, Zechariah seems to say that Israel, in general, will be saved when they actually witness Christ return at the end of the falling of God's wrath: those Jews who were born again prior to that will be part of the church, these will, it seems, enter into the kingdom of Christ in the flesh. Jesus referred to them as the virgins awaiting the bridegroom, but not as the bride, itself. I admit that it is somewhat confusing to me exactly what position they will hold-I don't believe the church has taken their place, but of course, I also am not sure that the church is actually the bride, as it is t
  14. If we go back to Webster's 1828, which gives us a closer understanding of what the translators meant when they used the word "mansions", it means "any place of residence, a house, a habitation". Today we use the term as a magnificent house of great splendor, but then, it was just any house. So seems to me the understanding ought to be that in our father's house, there are many houses, many places for the children of God to dwell for eternity. We have a habitation there in God's house. I suspect the reference is meant to give assurance to the believer that we have awaiting us an eternal habitat
  15. Both my wife and I are good cooks; I was single for 10 years, so cooked a lot for just me, as well as for the occasional date. Currently my wife is in a fairly long-term slow recovery from a long time illness that keeps her from doing much, though she did make some tasty bread last night, a couple small loaves, but oxygen issues keep her from doing as much as she would like. So I do most of the cooking, and have recently gotten into smoking and barbequeing, something I've never been much on, but teaching myself. I have a big brisket waiting an all-day smoking! I cooked in restaurants as w
