  1. It happens occasionally. I don't believe it's a hack, though.
  2. Psalm 9:17- The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. America is in the bible.
  3. I think in America it would be change for the better. America hasn't fallen that far away from her roots yet, IMO.
  4. I'm not sure about this. It can swing either way. I think persecution and rejection can be ratcheted up too. Depends on how wicked the nation is those Christians reside in.
  5. Any man like Osteen with a perpetual smile on his face I don't trust. Reminds me of the "Smile Mask Syndrome".
  6. I really don't care about the different camps. Believe you me, I really don't. Sometimes I'll go on the defense of a preacherchurchbible college because I know for a fact that they are being misrepresented or I try to give them the benefit of the doubt (like in the case of Caner). I tend to root for the underdogs anyway and anyone being piled on is an underdog in my eyes. I also sometimes will defend someone who's writings or ministry has helped me personally but it's purely on that basis that I do that. Not because I'm joined up with any camp. I admit in the past I've knocked on Dr. Cloud without really knowing all what he stands for. Most of this was because I know he misrepresented other ministries and pastors but I have since stop doing this and remain silent about him. Also, I think tearing down a fallen preacher or church is not productive unless they are unrepentant. But even then I try to avoid it because the unsaved and backsliders take joy in seeing this. They love seeing Christians devour each other in a time of need instead of restoring. I really mean this but it hurts me deeply when I hear of a IFB preacher falling into sin and even more when I read some of the gleeful posts produced by Christians when this happens. It should be a time of humility and mercy not a time of mockery and cheering.
  7. I'm glad I really don't care about what goes on in different circles of the IFB movement. I guess that makes me a true independent.
  8. Despite the denial you are correct. I know of one who used to moderate on this site who would shot down every pastor who wasn't him. My policy is that you can get something good from just about every man of God. Even bible correctors. Just toss out the bad and use the good. This will help you avoid joining any "camps".
  9. Anyone who posts after me thinks the New Living Translation is awesome and Rick Warren is spot on.
  10. Anyone who posts after me hates their mother, loves Hitler, denies the Holocaust, loves blood pudding, kicks their dog daily, thinks the Living Bible is the original manuscripts and believes Obama is a US citizen.
  11. I don't think she did. This is why she seemed surprised when Samuel showed up.
  12. Honestly, I wouldn't care what they were. There's a false assumption that they knew more of the truth because they were part of the early church but this isn't so. Also, there's a false assumption that they knew all the truth because they were part of the early church. Nothing to support this but pure conjecture. The only reason I would point out what they believe is to expose another false assumption, that John Darby "invented" pretribulationalism and the rapture. It's in the bible no matter who "invented" the doctrine.
  13. Waste of time. They're on the most part a bunch of mockers and gainsayers. I would be a better stewardship of your time to teach someone the scripture who wants to learn it.
  14. 40 day fasts?! Wow, I think you end up dying around 50 days without food. Other than Jesus and Moses, I believe the longest you read of in the bible three days. Interesting tid-bit: God never commanded anyone to fast.
  15. Not necessarily because I didn't know what to really pray for but a lot of events happened quickly after fasting that made my life better.
  16. Some Baptists fast. I've fasted. Just after I was saved I fasted for 10 straight days (it might have been more but I'm sure of 10) only drinking water. I'm not bragging and I wouldn't recommend that to anyone. In fact it was crazy. Not sure why I did it. It wasn't too long after I was saved so some of it was out of ignorance. But I was also going through a terrible time in my life. I dropped out of school, I was kicked out of the house by my parents, I was depressed and suffering from Pure OCD. The Pure OCD may have played into why I fasted so long. After the third day of fasting it actually got easier and even became hard to eat when I stop fasting. Kind of like how when you are so tired that you can't sleep. I'll tell you one thing, a lot of things happened in my life with God after that. It was bam, bam, bam. Maybe I should start fasting again. I won't be doing no 10 day fast though that's for sure. One thing I noticed is that the early Christians fasted and prayed before they sent out missionaries (Acts 13:2,3). I know from the churches I've attended there was usually a big church supper before someone left for the mission field.
  17. Sounds like from your OP the other board is the issue.
  18. I think we should wait to hear from Dr. James Ach's side of the story. Sounds like the OP wants him banned from both websites.
  19. It would commemorate Israel's deliverance from the wilderness of the world.
  20. The feast of tabernacles commemorated Israel's dwelling in the wilderness for 40 years. So the celebrated of it during the millennium would have to do with them commemorated their dwelling in the wilderness of the world prior to the Lord's coming. Yes, Herod's temple was considered a renovation not a complete new temple.
  21. Yes, and here's a passage where everyone during the millennium will have to observe the feast of tabernacles. Zechariah 14 [16] And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. [17] And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. [18] And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. [19] This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  22. Not sure about five phases but possibly there are three. Just like there are three "phases" of a harvest in the OT: first fruits, main harvest and gleanings:there may be three phases of the first resurrection (Exodus 23:16,17). I've also ask myself about the rebuilding of the temple and reinstitution of the animal sacrifices. It seems to be there though. The sacrifices of Ezekiel 44,45 take place under "David the prince".
