  1. We have had 2 visit our Church because or Anderson, they both left.
  2. Bumping this old thread. Can we get more examples of commonly misquoted verses.
  3. https://www.ttb.org/programs/the-5-year-study/study-contents
  4. Yes, I am working on a Master of Theology in Biblical Languages. I would recommend Andersonville, I have learned and been challenged quite a bit in my classes.
  5. I am currently enrolled in Andersonville Theological Seminary, and while I disagree on some minor points it has been generaly very solid. https://www.oneplace.com/ministries/thru-the-bible-international/listen/persian/
  6. Remember that Jesus died for Muslims and loves them also, Don't ruin the testimony of Jesus Christ over something so small in the grand scheme of things.
  7. So you think Tyndale was so stupid that he didnt know that Christ was not an Easter (in our modern sense) lamb? Perhaps William Tyndale understand the word Easter differently then 21st Century English Speakers....
  8. Tyndale used Passover and Easter interchangably in his text. In fact Tyndales NT said Christ is our Easter lamb. The anglo saxon NT used the word Easter every place where the Greek word “Pascha” was used. Easter is the same as Passover in Acts 12. And no the days of unleavened bread starting does not mean it could not have been Passover. Ezekiel 45:21 KJV [21] In the first month , in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. I dont think William Tyndale was so stupid that he thought Christ wasn’t the passover lamb. Its clear from his translation, and the anglo saxon bible that Easter at one point in the English language was a synonym for passover. This rediculous idea about a Pagan holiday being called by the same Greek name in NT time as the Jewish Passover is nonsense and it makes it hard for people to take us seriously when we defend the KJV. Easter in Acts 12 is not a pagan holiday and neither is it a “goof”, It was simply a synonym for Passover in the English language at that time. According to Webster 1828 E'ASTER, n. A festival of the christian church observed in commemoration of our Savior's resurrection. It answers to the pascha or passover of the Hebrews, and most nations still give it this name, pascha, pask, paque. According to Smiths Bible dictionary Easter. Act 12:4. In the earlier English versions, Easter has been frequently used as the translation of pascha, (Passover). In the Authorized Version, Passover was substituted in all passages but this; and in the new Revision, Passover is used here. See Passover. Easton: In the early English versions this word was frequently used as the translation of the Greek pascha (the Passover). When the Authorized Version (1611) was formed, the word “passover” was used in all passages in which this word pascha occurred, except in Acts 12
  9. Agreed. I would love a modern english equivilent of the KJV. Sadly most attempts have done beyond that.
  10. I have dealt with Roby on another board several times. I have already refuted him on Easter (Though I personally disagree that Easter in Acts 12 is a Pagan holiday, my position is the word Easter was a synonym for Passover when the KJV was translated) Roby will continue to spout his same old talking points over and over and over again even after being refuted and so I refuse to engage him on this topic. My suggestion is that he should be banned because he is not willing to have an honest discussion on the KJV but has his own agenda that he wants to push.
  11. I live in the Southwest Suburbs and go to a great Bible believing and teaching church in Tinley Park. I invite you to come: https://www.calvarybaptisttinley.com For me, my Church was instrumental in God changing me, and that is the way God intended for the Church to be. Please listen to this very short message about Church that I put out years ago for new and growing Christians: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4Cyo2ykALwGd28zR3lYWldDaWM/view?usp=sharing If you have a problem playing the file, just download it and it will play. https://www.wayoflife.org/reports/church_membership.html
  12. I am of the opinion that it is a combination of both positions that is the truth. I think there is a lot of shallowness and hardness in IFB that is driving people away, but I also acknowledge that there is a lot of worldly temptations that is also drawing them away. I do not think we have an either or situation here, but rather a "these are both problems" scenario.
  13. It's likely that the "Earth being turned upside down" is a symbolic way of saying that the earth will be devastated by judgments. I see no contextual or linguistic evidence to support a "pole shift".
  14. Francis Chan teaches that Baptism is how someone gets their sins forgiven. That is false teaching and yes he should be avoided. See Ephesians 2:8-9 and 1:12-14. also study the Thief on the cross
  15. Matthew 12:38-40 King James Version (KJV) 38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The Pharisees and Scribes had already seen plenty of signs from Jesus throughout his ministry, but they hated that he taught against their unbiblical traditions. Jesus said that an evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign. The scribes and Pharisees had everything they needed in the Old Testament to know that Jesus was the Messiah, See Mic 5:2, Is 7:14 for examples. It seems that the asking of a sign was not really that they genuinely wanted to know if Jesus was the Messiah, but they were seeking to try and catch him doing something they could condemn, at one point they tried to condemn Jesus for healing on the sabbath day. Jesus refers to Jonah as a sign to them. Jonah spend 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of a fish that God had swallow him up and then ultimately it spit him back out. This was to be a picture or sign that pointed to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Read Jonah chapter 1 and 2 to see more about Jonah. The point of the passage is that we shouldn't ask God to give us miraculous signs to validate truth about God. We are told that 2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: We have everything that we need to know about God in the scriptures, the Bible. There are too many people out there that depend upon their experiences and "signs" to tell them what is true or not. Oftentimes these people end up believing things contrary to God's word and God NEVER contradicts his word. If you have an experience or a "sign" and that sign or experience teaches you something that the Bible says the opposite, your sign or experience is not from God. The point is, we have too many people that want God to prove himself to them, But God already has done that in the word of God, the word of God is full of fulfilled prophecies and the Bible tells you everything you need to know. When kids in my Jr. Church ask me about off topic random stuff such as where did Cain get his wife, I tell them that God didn't tell us, and since God didn't tell us then it's not important. So if you need to know something, God put it in his word, and if it isn't in God's word, then you don't need to worry about it.
  16. Well, in this one scenario I believe Jesus chose to use the word sleep because he knew he was about to raise her from the dead therefore he described her as sleeping because he was going to "wake" her. But typically sleep is just an idiomatic way of saying death. I did not say it always means that, because context and cultural usage defines the meaning of words and you can't force the meaning of it one context on all other contexts. You can disagree with me if you want, but the Bible nowhere teaches the concept of soul sleep, only a metaphorical word in place of the word death in some cases.
  17. When you see the word sleep in the Bible it's a euphemism/idiom for death, kinda like how when someone dies and we say they "passed away" or "kicked the bucket".
  18. I will grant that FBWWM seems like a less restrictive board than BIMI
  19. The handbooks of boards says a whole lot about them. I saw many of the things Alan mentioned already in some handbooks.
  20. I believe CMC is a worthy mention for this thread.
  21. Of course they always have “reasons” for their rules. The rule book will tell you something about the board though. I am going to just use facial hair for one example, the bible absolutely is not against facial hair, therefore if a board is going to make a rule about that it tells me they think thats important. If a board is going to tell you that you cant have facial hair what else will they dictate? To me that tells me that they feel strongly about something that is not biblical or significant in the big picture of missions. To me it seems like a bit of a legalistic spirit. I am yet to see any mission board admit that they are controlling. Every mission board says that they are “local church”. But the proof is in the pudding when you get down to the nitty gritty details. Listen, if someones wants to give up some of their autonomy for the help and aid of a mission board then thats fine, I wont condemn anyone for that. But for me personally I would not go with a Board that gives evidence to me that they will try to micromanage my ministry and life. Unfortunately there is definately a legalistic spirit out there amongst Independant Baptists, There is a serious problem with people pushing their own personal preferences on others and I see this with mission boards. I have just watched how one unnamed mission board has tried to destroy a godly missionary and his family and get them kicked out of the country simply because he did not agree with their missions philosophy and he wasnt even under their board. I am not against Mission boards, but we need to be honest and realize that many missions boards do restrict the missionaries freedom. You have to realize you are trading some freedom for help from the board. And of course you can talk to the people from the boards, but realize they are probably not going to tell you the negative consequences of being with their board and they are of course going to have “reasons” for all of their rules. I am not trying to attack any mission boards or person. I respect Pat Gordon and what he is doing. For me though I looked into them and it wasnt a fit for me. Maybe it is for someone else, but not for me.
  22. Col 2:16 clearly refutes the idea of NT believers being obligated to keep the Sabbath.
