  1. That was my main concern Jerry, one was mineral in nature, while the other was vegetation.
  2. Thanks for the help folks. There doesn't seem to be much about this subject anywhere.
  3. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts they would like to share regarding Satan being in Eden, as portrayed in the book of Ezekiel. I was thinking specifically about the difference that we see between the garden of Eden as it is portrayed in Genesis, compared with Eden in Ezekiel. In Genesis God planted the garden, in Ezekiel the garden is portrayed as mineral in nature and called, "the garden of God". I was just curious about how people viewed this garden, if it was the same place in both accounts and why anyone believes what they believe about it. Ezekiel 28:12-17 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
  4. Sounds good for a hot night dinner Tony. I also like things like a good macaroni salad, or potato salad on a hot night..
  5. What if Deut. 22.5 is not referring strictly to clothing at all? Note the wording and the difference in such, as they pertain to both men and women. Particularly the differences. “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man” “neither shall a man put on a woman's garment:“ A "garment", is certainly clothing, but can we say with certainty that "that which pertaieith to a man" is also clothing?
  6. HC, like you. my stomach wouldn't take all that hot stuff and tomato. too acidy for me. That, and unlike most people, I don't like chili. It seems to me that most people that like chili will always say how good it is by how hot it is. At church we have a chili cook off once per year and a bit of a contest to see who made the best chili, invariably it is the hottest. I would think that flavor would be the determining factor, but over the years ii just seems to me that spicy-hot is most peoples determining factor. But, what do I know? The guy that doesn't even like it.
  7. Preacher, I would respectfully suggest that you do a search of this forum for this subject. This topic has been discussed many times over the years. I suggest a search because this has been requested by this board's owner in his published rules, which are as follows: Board Rules For OnlineBaptist.com Members are responsible to check this page regularly for any changes or additions that were made. 1.

  8. OFP. would you care to elaborate on what you said? Specifically why you think this about TGL Just wondering because I have not thought about this and strictly from his posts, I would not have even given it any thought.
  9. No, ladies only. They need a place to discuss lady and private lady only stuff. Another forum isn't very helpful, we already have more than enough. It is this way with most active message boards, people always want more categories, which makes more work for mods and admins.
  10. What you posted makes absolutely no sense, grammatically or otherwise.
  11. Tony, you keep saying that SBC churches are autonomous. It seems like you are trying to justify your not being in a truly Independent Church. If autonomy is really important , why not be truly Independent? It has been my experience that "Convention" churches are always spouting "autonomy", while at the same time, caving in to the convention's programs. Autonomy and Independence consists of a lot more than your explanation of SBC churches. For instance, while a convention or fellowship may not mandate that churches in the convention go along with the convention programs, most, if not all, will follow the convention's guidelines. A couple of examples would be: The convention's Sunday School quarterlies being used by convention churches, as well as AWANA, which program is used by most, if not all, convention churches. And finally I would submit that, as far as Bible guidance is concerned, we do not see conventions or fellowships in Scripture, each church was truly autonomous in all respects. As far as "mission boards", there is no scriptural justification for them. Mission boards are man made inventions, with men in positions on the boards that are drawing more money than the missionaries in most cases. The bible example is missionaries sent out y Independent churches, not mission boards. In many cases the board gets the final say-so as to who goes where, and even makes the decision to send a missionary where he is burdened to go or not. There are even allegations that a mission board will keep, or take out a missionary it deems unacceptable, or his work is not acceptable to the board. Mission boards, apart from being unscriptural, serve only to siphon off funding that would be better used on the actual mission field.
  12. I did another experimental one tonight. I bet you would like it Tony. Dinner was fish, I cooked it in an experimental way and it turned out wonderful. I didn't bread it, just melted butter in a pan with a little oil to keep it from burning. Put in some seasoning I had never used before, it said it was chicken grilling seasoning. (I was gong to use Lemon Pepper, but found I didn't have any.) I also sprinkled on some dry white cheddar and Parmesan. They turned out wonderful, Linda liked them a lot too. I sliced some red potatoes kinda thick and pan fried them, they are always good. I enjoy cooking fish because it cooks so fast.
  13. I love to experiment Invicta. Most times it turns out good and once in a while, not so good. I did an experiment the other night that turned out exceptional. Just for kicks I'll write it out; if you like clam chowder, you will love this. I have never heard of anyone making anything like this, so it was a real experiment. Put on a large pot of water to boil. You can use any pasta, I used elbows and spaghetti. While the water is coming to a boil, I cut up half an onion and sautéed it. I basically had the ingredients for a clam chowder and decided to use them, they consisted of: a can of minced clams, a can of whole baby clams, white clam sauce and a clam base. I drained all the juice from the clam stuff and added a tablespoon of clam base to the juice. Then put it in a sauce pan and added the onions, clam solids and a jar of Alfredo sauce. Once the spaghetti was done, the sauce was also done. Served the sauce over the spaghetti and I have to admit, it is more than great. Got some left over for tomorrow, even though we both ate a lot, two huge plates of it apiece.
  14. Our church doesn't do a special service to commemorate memorial Day, nor has any Baptist church I have been in do so. We, and they, just make mention of it and perhaps say a special prayer for the country and those who served.
  15. It sounds unusual Invicta, but sometimes the unusual turns out wonderful.
