    Donnie Romero at it again

    rabbit trail. Proverbs 24:16 cannot be divorced from vs 15 of the same chapter. I dont think it means what it is only preached or quoted to mean.

    Catholic Who Embraced Jesus As Lord And Savior

    Catholicism is not biblical. I encourage you to read the link Salyan posted from wayoflife.org

    Jews Versus Gentiles

    Psalm 19:1-3 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, evenhis eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    Jews Versus Gentiles

    The problem is not with scientific discoveries but the misinterpretation/misrepresentation of scientific discoveries. I dont fear science, but sometimes its difficult because scientists today so frequently present their unproven theories as facts, they just say those things over and over and over again and people blindly pick them up and begin repeating them. Case in point is the earth being millions of years old. Totally unproven.

    Jews Versus Gentiles

    Noah had 3 son, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. All people groups come from one of these 3 sons, Abraham was a descendant of Shem, the Jews descended from Abraham ultimately. I believe most of your Africans came from the linage of Ham, while Shem produced the Semitic people groups and I think even the Asian groups as well. I believe the European groups were descendants of Japheth. What you have to realize is that Abraham was just one tiny branch of the human family tree during his time. BTW the “flood” of Noah really did happen. Henry Morris put out a great book on it and there is tons of evidence out there that there was a worldwide flood.
  7. Who exactly are you listening to? If I might make some recommendations, you can go to Sermon Audio and listen to people like Kenny Baldwin, John Van Gelderen, Jim Van Gelderen, also David Cloud. I also highly recommend you download the App "loveworthfinding", it's a ministry that plays audio sermons from now deceased preacher, Adrian Rogers. I would like to recommend you read this free e-book, it is for people in your situation. https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/what-if-no-good-church.php In response to your question about the practice of talking about other churches and Pastors: https://www.wayoflife.org/reports/private_reproof_vs_public.html "God solemnly charges the preacher to identify false teachers, to exhort, reprove, and rebuke with all authority, to speak as the oracles of God, to earnestly contend for the faith, and even to warn about born-again compromisers (Romans 16:17; 2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 2:15; 1 Peter 4:11; Jude 3; 2 Thess. 3:6; 2 Tim. 4:10). Nowhere in Scripture are these commandments restricted in their scope. Nowhere does God say that a Bible preacher can reprove and rebuke only the members of his own church or that he can reprove and rebuke anyone who errs except an influential Christian leader. " "To reprove public sin and error publicly by the Word of God under the guidance of the Spirit of God and in His wisdom is not slander and is not gossip and is not “throwing rocks” and is not “shooting the wounded” and is not hateful and is not dishonoring to Christ." Now, there are definately internet preachers to avoid, for example one of them is Steven Anderson. You need to find sound bible teaching, ideally a solid church.

    Absence of Doctrinal Authority

    Well, sadly today many churches are getting away from teaching bible doctrine and expositing the scriptures. Southern Baptist Churches today are filled with compromise, OnlineBaptist here is made up of Independant Fundamental Baptists, we are distinct and separate from Southern Baptists. https://www.wayoflife.org/database/whynotsbc.html

    Absence of Doctrinal Authority

    the Bible is our authority, Any governing body that contradicts the teachings of scripture has lost its “authority”. God already has given us an authoritative body, and that was the writers of the Old and New Testaments. No body can dictate or legislate doctrine. Except that Orthodox Churches such as you have described practice the heresy of infant baptism.

    Steven Anderson

    This man spews unbiblical hatred and false doctrines. https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/downloads/What_About_Steven_Anderson.pdf

    Steven Anderson

    I am in agreement with Dave here, their soul winning is just repeating a shallow 10 minute Romans Road. You can see a video of their soul winning on youtube. While Anderson may be getting people interested in his brand of "Christianity" he is not bringing people to follow Jesus Christ, but to follow him and his wacky ideas and sensational doctrines. How many Sodomites has Steven Anderson turned away from Christianity because of his hate? How can we possibly give any praise to a man who has openly prayed for certain people to die and go to hell? We have had run in's with Andersonites at our church, they seem to want to promote the doctrines of Steven Anderson and not the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Personally, I detest the doctrine and teachings of Steven Anderson.
  12. Jordan Kurecki

    Steven Anderson

    We also have gotten several visitors looking for a KJV church from him. Unfortunately we had one guy who was promoting the idea that Sodomites cannot be saved, teaching against the Pre Trib rapture, and promoting replacement theology. His followers seem completely unable to actually think for themselves, when you show them clear scripture against what they believe they continue to blindly follow Steven Anderson. Andersonism is a cult plain and simple.
  13. Many preachers teach that 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 teaches that the sign gifts will cease, the claim is that the "perfect" of vs 10 is the completed canon of scriptures. However I have a hard time seeing how the completed scriptures were what enable Paul to "know even as I also am known". I am beginning to wonder if this interpretation of this passage of scripture is a knee jerk reaction to charismatic doctrine and chaos? I see it as a definite possibility that what the "perfect" is and what Paul means by "then shall I know even as I also am known" as a reference to our condition in glory, or something of that nature. So I have several questions 1. Does the cessation of spiritual gifts hinge on 1 Corinthians 13:8-12? What other passages of the bible teach cessationism of the sign gifts? 2. Can we know with certainty based on Biblical exegesis that the "perfect" of vs 10 is the completed canon of scripture? or do we just say that because we have heard preachers teach that? This was the closest to an acceptable explanation that I could find about vs 12, but I still have trouble and feel like it glosses over the phrase "shall know even as also am known" "The word translated as glass (esoptron esoptron) literally refers to a mirror. The ancients did not have the technology to make useful mirrors from glass. Rather, they were made from polished metal. Of course, the imagery thereon was not clear, but somewhat fuzzy. The word translated as darkly (ainigma ainigma) is whence the English word enigma derives. Here it has the sense of ‘not clearly,’ or as the Authorized Version renders it, darkly. The idea was of the obtuse imagery of ancient mirrors. The application was to the limited degree of spiritual understanding and knowledge present in the early church ab- sent the New Testament. However, the day was coming when they would see “face to face.” His point is simple. Though in spite of God’s gracious gifts to the early church, their understanding and grasp of New Testament truth was like looking into a polished piece of metal as a mirror. The image was there, but not clear. However, the day was not distant when their understanding would be like seeing face to face. He continued, in that day I “shall know even as also I am known.” When the New Testament was completed, their knowledge of things spiritual would be as sharp as seeing each other face to face." -From David Sorenson's Commentary on 1st Corinthians. 1Co 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there beprophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 1Co 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 1Co 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 1Co 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    Reprobates & Salvation

    I see that he is not willing to apply the same standards to Romans chapter 1 as he is to 1 Corinthians 6 regarding that statement.
  15. Jordan Kurecki

    Reprobates & Salvation

    The word abusers of themselves with mankind is the Greek word equivalent to homosexual, there was no such English word as homosexual in 1611 when the KJV was translated. Abusers of themselves with mankind is a Euphemism for homosexuals. G733 (Strong) ἀρσενοκοίτης arsenokoitēs ar-sen-ok-oy'-tace From G730 and G2845; a sodomite: - abuser of (that defile) self with mankind. ἀρσενοκοίτης arsenokoitēs Thayer Definition: 1) one who lies with a male as with a female, sodomite, homosexual Zodhiates definition: ἀρσενοκοίτης arsenokoítēs; gen. arsenokoítou, masc. noun, from ársēn (G730), a male, and koítē (G2845), a bed. A man who lies in bed with another male, a homosexual (1Co 6:9; 1Ti 1:10 [cf. Lev 18:22; Rom 1:27]). And nowhere does Romans 1 says that all homosexuals are reprobates that cannot be saved, plus 1st Corinthians clearly states homosexual had gotten saved. Study your bible and stop following the false teachings of Steven Anderson. The teaching that homosexuals cannot be saved is straight from the pit of hell and not from the word of God.

    Saved in 3 tenses?

    Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV [8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 11:6 KJV [6] And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. we are saved by grace THROUGH Faith. Grace and works are opposed. Its eithwe by grace through faith, or by works (obedience). But it cannot be both. the book of Galatians would be a good book for you to study. Our justification is not conditioned upon our obedience but upon the fact that Jesus was obedient for us. Romans 4:3-5 KJV [3] For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. [4] Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. [5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Faith in regards to salvation, is understanding and agreeing what God says about our sin and that Jesus died as the payment for our sin, was buried and rose again. Faith is believing that God accepts what Jesus did for your justification and Jesus is the only reason God will accept you.

    Open/Close/Closed Communion

    Lately I have been doing some consideration on communion. I know many feel very strongly about communion only being taken by members of that particular local church, this position is called Closed Communion, others feel that visiting members of like minded churches in good standing are able to partake of communion, this position is called Close Communion, others feel that any one who is saved and visiting a church can take part in communion, this is called Open Communion. I have been considering and searching the scriptures and trying to come to a conclusion on where I stand on this, and quite frankly I do not see any of the positions as being very clear in the scripture, because of this I tend to lean towards a closed communion position because of the fact that I believe it is a church ordinance. What are your thoughts and what are some relevant passages of scripture?

    Hello

    So have you read and listened yet?
  20. Jordan Kurecki

    Hello

    Fairybird, I would like to ask you to listen to the audio from the following link, in it, you will hear an explanation of how a person can know that they have eternal life when they go to heaven, it will show from God's word the truth about how to go to heaven. I believe that you very much are in need of hearing the message here, I think based on some of the answers you have given to No Nicolaitans that you have some misconceptions about how a person can go to heaven. http://www.knowimsaved.com/The-Gospel-Clearly-Explained.php Or if you prefer to read something these also will be helpful: http://www.knowimsaved.com/BOOKLET-THE-MOST-IMPORTANT-MESSAGE.pdf http://www.knowimsaved.com/what shall i do then.website.pdf

    Refuting a Reasonable Arminian's Arguments Against Calvinism.

    I skimmed a few of your articles, you like to cherry pick your definitions of the word world according to your liking. You point to a few useages where the word world is used in a hyperbolic sense and you then assume that is how it is being used in John 3:16 and 1st John 2:2. Words are defined based on their context, and you can’t force the meaning of a words usage from one context to all other contexts.

    Refuting a Reasonable Arminian's Arguments Against Calvinism.

    The Bible does not support Calvinism, no matter how much linguistic or contextual gymnastics Calvinists like to do, the fact of the matter is passages like John 3:16 and 1st John 2:2, do in fact refute the false doctrines of Calvinism. You can try and reinterpret "world" as much as you want but that doesn't make your interpretation true. The Calvinists viewpoint eliminates the simple, plain, and straightforward readings of many passages of scripture. It doesn't matter what the bible says, Calvinists are excellent at twisting the scriptures to teach their false doctrine. Glad that we have the intellectual smart Calvinists out there to tell all of us poor Arminian folks that God doesn't actually love the world and that Jesus is not the savior of all men, and that God does not will for all men to come to the knowledge of the truth. Calvinism is very reminiscent of the RCC, in that the priesthood tells you what to believe and that you are too stupid to actually understand the Bible, Catholics have their priests and Calvinists have their internet theologians.

    Knowing Him

    I believe Ginosko is very similiar to the Hebrew Yada, which is the same word used when Adam "knew" Eve. Knowing God is an intimate relationship.

    Regarding the "You got my Vote!" poll...

    Prove your love by being honest, what is your religious affiliation, what church do you attend? You are quite suspiciously avoiding this question, that is not a fruit of the Spirit of God, Jesus said by their fruits we shall know false prophets and teachers, your fruit so far has not shown that you are a true teacher of God's word.
