    Ukulelemike got a reaction from Disciple.Luke in Good Sunday School Materials   
    I am working on training a young man in my church to teaching; I learned to teach and prepare lessons, and later sermons, through using a good book of prepared Adult Sunday school lessons, and teaching through them, so this is what I desire to do. However, it has been such a long time since I used that sort of thing that I'm not sure where to look for something good. Years back we used Regular Baptist Press, but they are not so good now. Any suggestions?

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from Alan in Why Don't Baptist Fast   
    I have to say, I appreciate the honesty of those who admit they are too weak to fast. Honesty is a good thing, but it also implies you know you ought to do it, and you know it will bring your walk with Christ somewhere it has never been before. So I ask: Is it worth it to you? Do you want a better relationship?
    But I also warn you: like anything we do when we seek to grow in Christ, it has its inherent dangers. The last time I fasted, I fasted for a week, because I wanted to gain some wisdom and seek god's will, as well as begin to improve my work as a pastor. Shortly after starting, my wife got sick. They said it was nothing, but a few days later, she went into the emergency room and didn't leave the hospital for 5 months, severely ill, almost dying. Listening to some preaching sermons to try to gains some balance as I reeled over what was happening, a sermon by my old pastor, who himself has done serious fasting, warned that when we fast, we need to keep in mind that things may occur that seem devastating at the moment, but are happening as a response to the fasting done to grow, and that helped immensely, as I fully realized this was god's will for some reason, and that through it all, there would be some spiritual gain.
    So when you fast, if you're truly looking for spiritual results, things can happen that may seem hard, but remember, a tree only bears more and better fruit when it is properly pruned from time to time. But is it worth it? Absolutely!

    Update: Spoke with her husband last night, he said there has been some healing, that the area between her stoma and her abdomen, where the leakage into her gut was, has begun to heal and there is now a barrier there, keeping to manure, (as my wife calls it) out of her gut. So a step forward. Thanks for prayer and keep it going!

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from HappyChristian in Pastor's Wife in dire health-need prayer   
    Just a bit over a year ago, my wife and I celebrated her year since she almost died, and spent 5 months in the hospital for a very serious health conditions. The prayers of the saints all over did mighty things, and my wife is still here, getting stronger each day as she continues in recovery.
    That being said, I have recently met another pastor, by phone, whose wife had suffered something similar, though lighter, and had to have a temporary ostomy. When the time came to have her bowel reconnected, apparently it failed, and flooded her abdomen with a great amount of stool and infected blood, which caused serious sepsis. This is virtually identical to what happened to my wife initially, which is why I am bringing this up. His wife has subsequently had to be given a long incision in her abdomen to do cleanings, (like my wife did), and there is great concern over whether she will survive this. The reason I keep mentioning my wife is because it is so similar to what she endured, yet through prayer, faith, and capable doctors, she survived what even her surgeon didn't expect her to survive, and knowing this, I believe this dear pastor's wife can, as well. 
    So I would lift her and her husband up in prayer for this-if the Lord allows her to live, it will be a long journey. His church is soon having a special meeting for a couple days, and I know they are still having it, but I know this will affect him. So please lift them up in prayer for mercy, healing and grace. I am thankful that my wife and I are able to use the great hardship we went through to be a help to them in this time, having person experience with it from many perspectives.  Thanks all.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from PastorMatt in Cameron Giovanelli Resigns From Golden State Baptist College   
    Since this topic has risen once again, I habe heard that there's news on the topic, but habent heard what it is.
    I never have my thoughts on this, but I believe that first off, NVBC did right in how they handled it on their end; the offense did not occur at their church or school, and a careful investigation was made to ensure nothing had occurred with the students. As well Giovanelli was immediately removed from all duties once the issue was made known to them, and they began their investigation into it. I know Shiflett didn't find this to be enough in his eyes, but since the allegations were made by only one witness, scripturally what do we see? 1 Timothy 5:19 KJV
    "Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses."
    So with only one witness, and that shakey, I think, having waited how many years to say anything, and at this point I still don't even know what the accusation was, it was correct how the church proceeded. 
    As for what he is doing now, the allegations are public, his current church knows about it, and as far as I understand Giovanelli has submitted himself to authorities while the investigation continues.

    Bro. Cloud has done an excellent job of identifying and addressing a problem that is all too common among Baptists today. This subject is of critical importance at this point in time. It would greatly benefit pastors and church members to search out the truth concerning this vital subject. Too many times a prospective church member is received much too hastily and many times without even the least consideration and input from church members in whom the responsibility lies to confirm prospective church members.
    The statistics that Bro. Cloud cites here are appalling in light of historic Baptist practices, as well as clear Biblical teaching.

    That's a shame. While I didn't like all his music, I believe his ministry had an overall positive impact on many. I had the opportunity to meet him years ago at Lighthouse Baptist church in san Diego near the beginning of his Patch ministry. Prayers for the family and a quick trip to glory for him.

    Most see the catholic 'church' as the end-all, be-all of Christianity until the 16th century, when Luther, then others, split off and started the reformation, and that's where all other churches came from However, that isn't the case.
    All during the reign of Catholicism, which is NOT Christian, there were many other churches in existence, some good, some bad. Anabaptists were some of them; this was a name given to them by the Catholic church as an insult. It means "re-baptizers", so-called for their practice of baptizing former-Catholic converts when they became saved. Generally, this was shortened to 'Baptist' by some, while others maintained Anabaptist. These groups have grown and become various groups, like the Mennonites and Ahimsh, some independent Baptists, Independent Fundamental Baptist, etc. 
    So true churches always existed from the time of Christ to the present, not part of any 'denomination'.

    Indeed, many sea creatures survived because they remained in their element. It is possible there may be other survivors we don't even know about-I think we may know 50% of what is in the oceans. Consider its only recently that we obtained photographic evidence of one of the larger sea animals, the giant squid, because they tend to remain deep. What else is lurking down there? I have heard of instances of very large great white sharks that are tagged, suddenly disappearing off the radar, as though something much bigger made a quick lunch of them.

    in fact, the continual new discoveries by scientists also makes us question, How can scientists say with such assurance that they know all about what happened 'millions of years ago', or even 'millions of light years away', as well as how global warming/cooling/climate change will effect the earth in 1000 years, when they don't even have a handle on the here and now? Every heavy storm washes up new animals from the ocean that baffle scientists, but by golly, they know all about how everything evolved from one thing to another! They don't understand how some storm activity occurs, but they will speak with assurance about that planet 1000 l/y away that rains diamonds!

    These versions you trust are based on the phony Sinaiticus, written in Greece around 1843.  It's a complete phony and a fraud and has born rotten fruit ever since.
    When one is bouncing around from version to version who then is their final authority?
