  1. Thank you once again for this update Bro. Dave. It is always good to know what to pray for, as well as results of answered prayer. It seems from your update that she will be used of The Lord in a mighty way. May God richly bless her as she serves Him.
  2. Thank you for the update on your daughter Bro. Dave. I have had her on my prayer list. I also pray for her safety and ability to adapt to unfamiliar situations. Missionaries typically have a "getting used to it" curve, some are easy and some are kind of difficult. Hers may be a bit on the difficult side considering the remoteness, as well as adapting to native peoples.
  3. It would seen that graduation day has come and those things are no longer needed; but love is now the order of the day. This is what Paul called "a more excellent way". 1Co 12:28 (KJV) And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I un
  4. People will be people and some very bigoted. That is not reason to drop the name Baptist. Regardless of what some people may think, the name Baptist is a description of a form of doctrine as well as a hard statement of a church's Polity. Baptists have always been defined by their doctrine, history proves this to be true. Many that have gone before us willingly gave their lives rather than compromise what they believed, or change their doctrinal stance. I, for one, would never discount their blood and abandon the doctrinal stand they gave their all for.
  5. Bro. Mike, I am sorry to say that I think your observation of it giving people an excuse is right on. The pretenders are always on the lookout for an excuse. Your last clause is a concern, but not a worry. Scripture tells us that in the last days there will come a great falling away from the faith. A church full of carnal Christians will never accomplish much; so it may be better if they leave and allow the strong spiritually discerning Christians to remain and carry on the work of The Lord.
  6. Good on him, now at least he will have his say in court and perhaps he is wise enough to include why he will not comply. In the small country town our church is in they mandated that churches not hold services in the beginning, then changed it to allow a certain number of members to attend, but they has to practice social distancing. Some other denominations complied, but we did not. Nothing was actually enforced and it was not law, but a political mandate. We were prepared to go the distance and not comply with any mandate that went against Scripture. My pastor and I conspired that
  7. Salyan, thank you for the strong dose of reality. Acts 5:29 (KJV) Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
  8. Brother Dave, it is good to "see" you back posting. Thank you for this update in regard to your daughter. I will certainly put her on my prayer list and hope and pray that she is effective in both her nursing, as well as ministry work. May God richly bless you and your work as you serve Him.
  9. Acts 6:10 (KJV) And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
  10. It is simply amazing that someone with a screen name of BibleBeliever would see nothing contradictory in engaging members on a message forum and asserting that the Bible does not say what it clearly does say. I posted the verses above to show beyond a shadow of a doubt, that in opposition to your assertion that unbelievers "can and do receive these things as they seek God", that there simply are no unbelievers that seek after God. God's Holy Spirt, the author of all Scripture, makes this fact clear to all by reaffirming that what was written in Romans 3:11 is further reinforced by Romans
  11. Rom 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. Rom 3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
  12. Romans 10:14 (KJV) How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
  13. Bro. Alan, I do believe that you have done an excellent job of expositing the regathering of Israel as a literal event and yet to be fulfilled as a future event. Thank you also for exposing the false teachings of both Steven Anderson and the JW's.
  14. This is the excuse that has generated numerous modern perversions of God's word. You are certainly free to use any or all of them; or update the KJV as you see fit. I am no Bible scholar, but I believe that God is perfectly able to not only preserve His word as He has promised, but use it as He has to save the souls of a lost and dying world.
