  1. Right now, at 4:45pm I have a pork roast on cooking. I am cooking it "pot roast" style. I find this much more moist and tender than roasting it in the oven.
  2. Northern California; $4.49 at the cheapest station in town. costs me a small fortune per month to go to church or town.
  3. I am sad to say I agree with this assessment. It deserves and answer.
  4. Well said bro. Markle, and something that most Baptists will not consider, given to them constantly listening to "commentators", as well as those with preconceived ideas. This is the epitome of biased teaching. Sadly, I have heard this taught in Baptist churches and no one thinks to even question it..
  5. Oh yeah, silly me. I forgot that these scientists were there, so they ought to know.
  6. Wonderful news LuAnne. Things like this bolster God's people when they can see first hand that prayer does work. It is reward enough for me. I will continue to pray for his full recovery. Thank you for the timely update.
  7. Bro. Matt, I have heard and read from scientists that give a much longer period of time that this, especially Geologists. Because I am a miner I hear a lot from Geologists and read and hear them talk in terms of billions of years all the time, I mean outrageous billions of years. Our Bile not only speaks to this issue, but it makes fools out of scientists that are foolish enough to state things like this. Hebrews 11:3 (KJV) Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. To me, this says very plainly that God made things with the "appearance of age", which puts all of man's guesses to shame, and they don't even realize it.
  8. Any scientist that believes this should have to answer this question: Why are there still apes?
  9. Brother Tony, This is the first I ever heard of a "head Deacon". The Bible lists the office of Deacon, I don't see anywhere, or justification for a hierarchy of Deacons. This could be and very likely was, the problem with the church you mentioned. No one man should have authority such as this. Even the pastor is to lead, not have authority over the church above pastoral authority. The ultimate authority in matters of church business lies with tis membership, that is the Scriptural way. I should back off of the subject of deacons, it is pulling the thread off topic. I apologize for this. It seems like I just couldn't let the subject of undue power given to Deacons go.
  10. No Deacon or Deacons should ever be given that much authority. Decision making is under the authority of the whole church membership. They are in that position as HELPERS to the pastor, not rulers, not a board of Deacons.
  11. Thanks Matt. That is good to know.
  12. Even I would not have known that. That is one reason why I did not try to remedy this for him, didn't even know about it. I make it a habit on any forum I visit or administer to just never log out. It saves a lot of problems and almost all forums have a feature that recognizes me each time I visit. I was wondering if this is something that other mods and admins can fix, that way someone having this problem doesn't have to wait until you are online and see the problem.
  13. I have been a member of two Independent Baptist churches. 1. Two Rivers Baptist in Fairbanks Alaska from 1977 to 2003. 2. Country Baptist in Yreka California from 2007 to 2021.
  14. Oh my, how is it possible to forget the meat? In the future it might help to wipe the pan with a bit of olive oil, just lightly mind you. As for me, I like what some call a "meat lovers" pizza, four or five different kinds of meat. And I always like lots of onions on mine, it imparts a bit of a sweet taste to the sauce. Do you make your own pizza crust, or buy one already made?
