  1. Safeguards such as these should be taught as part of the normal teaching routine of our churches. This teaching is not novel or new, it is part of proper Bible study. Pastors that neglect to preach and teach things of this nature are not preaching the whole Word of God. I remember as a young Christian learning this and making it a part of my belief system on a personal scale. I was taught that this kind of behavior on the part of both men and women was paramount and never to be neglected. It is not just for church staff, but should be practiced by all Christians, both male and female. I do know that this kind of thing is not always convenient and can be cumbersome at times. But it really doesn't take much effort to ask another church member to be present when we are brought into a situation were we might have to be alone with either someone of the opposite sex or children, including teens. Also this kind of safeguard should not be confined to church buildings and church members. It is vitally important that this be a prerequisite for witnessing door to door. Going out two by two is Scriptural by Biblical example. We never know who is going to answer the door and it can be dangerous, both morally as well as personally if we are alone in situations such as this. This should come naturally to church members, we should not even have to give it conscious thought, it should be an automatic response to situations that could have any tendency to bring reproach on our testimony or person.
  2. I must be having a senior moment here this morning Heartstrings. I don't have a clue as to what you wrote, or how this applies to the subject of Cameron Giovanelli.

    Hell's Population Clock

    Well, this one lasted for a whole 12 days. the date of his last login on this board was April 12th. Never to be seen again, as usual with this type of person. They register to become a member, never disclose their affiliations or beliefs, drop a false teaching bomb and then disappear when called on it. Pro. 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
  4. It took a lot of courage and conviction for Bro. Stacey to go public with this information. Now it remains to be seen what will come of this sad situation. As Independent Baptists this situation needs to be dealt with in a responsible Scriptural manner. The institutions involved need to step up to the plate and do the right thing. This is especially needful in light of their standing among Independent Baptists as leaders among IFB churches and members nationwide. My heart and prayers go out to Bro. Stacey for taking the stand that he took and reinforcing the integrity of Biblical precepts.

    Hunting yummy things

    I have a 6mm Remington I have owned for more years than I care to say. Wonderful caliber for medium size game, flat shooting and great velocity.

    Now that might be an acceptable compromise.
  7. What would be right is to address the allegations and if needed apologize.
  8. Good point Heartstrings. This is one of the main strong points of any local IFB church ministries; accountability! If accountability is relaxed or non-existent, havoc follows.
  9. I appreciate your statement of the issue being one of the heart. Considering where your residence is, your assessment of the situation is in the minority for the East Coast. I visit other East Coast forums that are not religious, by far they all blame the guns and the second amendment.
  10. Or any preacher, it gives all preachers a bad name.

    Thank you for the invite HC. I would love to visit and fellowship some day. But the Mexican food O could do without. lol I always thought that it was traditional to serve visiting Baptist preachers Chicken. After all baptists are renowned chicken eaters.

    Buuuuut, inquiring minds want to know. Not that I like Mexican food, because I don't, but am still interested.

    Forgive me, I'm just an old guy with an odd sense of humor. Taco Bell is a business, so you had the whole business? I do know you had something from Taco Bell, but I just couldn't help it.
  14. Bro. Alan, I am not seeing the subject you mentioned in the link you gave. Perhaps I am just missing it somehow? Can you give a direct link to the actual article?
