    He wasn't calling anyone a fool, he was correcting the post where the poster wrote "We may be able to FULL man...", when he clearly meant "to FOOL man...". Just a spelling correction. Probably they made the comment on their phone and it didn't like the word fool and changed it.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from PastorMatt in Easter / Resurrection Service   
    He started as pastor there after a big, messy issue left from his former pastor, as I recall, so yes, he is very sensitive with such things. I believe he was advised by many pastors to close that church and start something new, but he chose to trust God and keep moving, and well, we see how that has worked out: very well! He's a good preacher, with a great heart. 
    I will admit though, that their musical choices are beginning to get a bit questionable, slowly sliding to using re-purposed CCM. I pray they bring it to a halt before it affects the church.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from HappyChristian in Publisher Whitaker House KJV Sword Study bible is NOT a true KJV   
    I have this Bible-ordered it for my wife while she was in the hospital. I recently began to use it, as she never did, (she wanted her regular bible), having left my 'preaching' Bible at the church house, when I began to preach online from my camper. I had only used it a couple times, but the first thing I noticed was that it changed most of the uses of the name "Timotheus" to "Timothy". Yes, same name, same person, but I suspect there was a reason for the different uses of the names, though I haven't done a study on that. It just seemed...odd, as they left Timotheus in a few places, but changed it in others. So I went and got my regular preaching KJV Bible, because if some things have been changed without letting on, that else is changed? Some things DO make a difference, like "Always" Vs. Alway", which is 'always' changed to "always" in modern versions. Or thoroughly vs throughly: different, though similar words.

    Thanks for the concern. As of this morning, when she was on just room air for about 10 minutes using the restroom, she came back and checked her oxygen and was at about 89%, so getting better slowly. I suspect that even as she gets normal she will be staying on oxygen at night, probably just a low volume, for a while to come, just to keep things strengthened.

    Thanks for the latest update Mike. It sounds like some good progress, although small. The encouraging thing is that even though the progress is slow, it is positive progress and each little bit adds up to substantial progress in the long run.

    Not part of the topic, but since I was asked, While she was in the hospital a year ago, one of the things they didn't tell her about was that she had ARDS, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, which is scarring to the lungs. Had we known that, she would have stayed on night-time oxygen longer than she was, but not knowing, once she was breathing well, and absorbing oxygen as she should, for a while, she went off the O2. Well, recently she began having shortness of breath, not Corona-related, and coughing-apparently she picked up a respiratory bug of some sort, and when we got her to her doctor after about a week of it slowly getting worse, she was only about 83 on room oxygen, (should be mid-high 90's). So we had to put her back on oxygen full-time. The last few days her cough has eased back, and is almost gone, but still struggling with oxygen absorption, so we will be keeping her on for a while, which keeps her from being able to do much right now.
     
    Thanks for the concerns and prayers, just going to take a while to get through this-she is irritated by it and upset her doctor never told her about the condition so we could have cut this off before.

    With my wife sick again, I am doing the cooking. Last night has thin steaks and baked potatoes. Not sure about tonight, because I forgot to take anything out to thaw, but I will think of something!

    FWIW, I ended up doing our Christ in the Passover presentation from my little preaching camper, and it actually worked out very well. Many watched, and many said they were blessed by it. I wasn't used to doing it in such tight quarters, but it turned out very good, I thought, all things considered. I would share it here, but I do Facebook streaming, so I can't save it to share in other places. If interested it can be seen on my church Facebook page, here:

    edit: There is a lot of movement in the video, mostly because I'm a big guy in a little trailer, and having my camera on the other side meant I had to move back and forth.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from Jim_Alaska in six fingers and six toes - thoughts?   
    I get you're new here, but there are rules, and they are for a purpose. It isn't difficult, and it isn't overbearing: We use the King James Bible version for our quotes. If you don't like the rule, feel free not to post. 
    Now, if the OP is concerning, perhaps, discussion of version differences, of course then it would be appropriate to show the variations. But for general quoting, please follow guidelines and use King James. Thank you.

    I don't think they should be forcing churches not to meet, but I also believe that ew ought to be considering our areas and what the possible dangers might be. The rain falls on the just and the unjust, and so does illness.  We are small and meet in a small place: if we met in a place large enough that we could be separate, physically, spread out, as it were, then we would meet as normal.
    We also need to consider the lost of our communities, to whom we are called: If they see us as being reckless and acting in a way that might cause a greater spread of sickness in our community, (not understanding that we act in faith, because they cannot understand that), this could greatly hurt our ability to reach them once this is all over. 
    We are in a time of great technological capabilities, that we CAN gather, virtually, for a time, if need be, if the church would take it as seriously as they do the regular assembly. Get up at your normal time, put on CLOTHES, preferably church clothes, have your Bible, look up verses, pay attention, sing along with the songs you know, BE there, in spirit.
    This last week, and for the time being, I am preaching via Live stream on Facebook, from a camper at my farm, which I have set up for the purpose. Sunday I stood, (I usually sit as it is a small trailer), and showed that I was wearing my full suit, not a shirt, jacket, and sweat pants. And my wife wore a nice church dress and did the music there with me, rather than watching me from home. And interestingly, I am having people listen to my services that do not come to our church-I have twice the attendance virtually, than I do physically! Sunday night I preached a pure gospel/salvation message since I am getting people who I believe are not saved watching. 
    But yes, I pray this will be temporary, but I will use it to God's glory while we can.
    As for Resurrection Day, I may resort to our usual building and do a presentation of Christ In the Passover.  I need more room than I have at the camper.

    We do our livestream from our Facebook page, 
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/414776588896397
    Sundays at 11AM, 6pm, and Thursdays at 7PM, all Pacific Standard time.    I livestream from my little 20' Aljo camper that has been siting, languishing, looking for a purpose: now it has one, at least for now. I run power to it from my solar array, so I have light and coffee, and my wife joins me there Sunday mornings to do the music, while I have her stay home the others, as it is a small camper.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from ChristianUnderground in Divorce, Re-Marriage, Adultery, and the Ministry   
    I have long disagreed with the view that a divorced man is disqualified to be a pastor. The idea comes from the phrase "The husband of one wife" He is to be the husband of one wife. I get that and I agree with it. However, does that reference divorce? If so, then it must also refence a widower, for in both cases, they are married to only one wife, but they HAD been married to another wife at one time. 
    In the question of divorce, it would be dependent upon, I suppose, the circumstances of the divorce. As Jesus said, fornication, (not adultery), is the acceptable reason for divorce, so in such a case, the man should be free to both remarry and pastor a church.  In other cases, we see Paul speak about if a believer is married to an unbeliever, and the unbeliever departs, let them depart, the believer is not under bondage, (bonds of marriage) to them. Therefore, that man should be free to both remarry and be a pastor.
    After I had accepted the call to preach, but well before I became a pastor, my wife left me, (an unbeliever), not wanting anything to do with that life. I wonder, when God called me, was He surprised that happened? No, He knew, and I believe it was part of that call, because she would not have been conducive to that work. No different than when Ezra commanded the Israelites to divorce the strange women they'd married while in captivity.

    When dealing with the difference between 'God sovereignly decided, before the foundations of time, who would be saved and who would go to hell', and then commands them ALL to be saved or go to hell' as opposed to 'whosoever will', THAT is doctrine-in fact, it covers a few doctrines, like the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Christ, whether man has free will to choose to follow or reject, and such. That is doctrine.
