  1. I love chicken also, but never in place of seafood. My ancestral roots are tied to the sea and seafood. Born in Gloucester Mass., oldest fishing port in the U.S.
  2. Oh my, you go to Red Lobster and order a Cajun dish? It's a sacrilege I say, a sacrilege!
  3. City folks are always a hoot!. I have lived both in the city and remote. Growing up I lived in the city, but as an adult I have almost always lived remote. Regarding cell reception, I don't have any at home at any time, it just not available. I depend on an old fashioned hard wire phone. I have also lived where wild things are the norm. In Alaska I had to be vary careful just stepping outside of my door. But then, in the city it is the same in many places, not because of wildlife, but because of people.
  4. Welcome. I just replied to your private message also.
  5. Bro. Cloud has done an excellent job of identifying and addressing a problem that is all too common among Baptists today. This subject is of critical importance at this point in time. It would greatly benefit pastors and church members to search out the truth concerning this vital subject. Too many times a prospective church member is received much too hastily and many times without even the least consideration and input from church members in whom the responsibility lies to confirm prospective church members. The statistics that Bro. Cloud cites here are appalling in light of historic Baptist practices, as well as clear Biblical teaching.
  6. Sorry to hear that. rotator cuff stuff is usually painful and has a long recovery and therapy time. I'll be praying for you as well as the bad news about the accident.
  7. I do not think it wrong to refer to Him either way. I posted the Scripture as this was the way that God, the Holy Spirit chose to introduce Him to the world. I also think that referring to Him by only the name Jesus or by His name as well as His title mostly depends on how He being spoken of. For instance, when speaking of Him as the Messiah it would be entirely correct to use His name and title in full, but also not wrong to refer to Him as Jesus. So, in our writing or speech how we depict Him and who we depict Him as could be the determining factor.
  8. Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
  9. Probably because there is only one devil, and Scripture talks of "devils" in the plural. I could be wrong. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
  10. Sadly this is true Mike. It seems like today the word Christian is pinned on just about any religious person that goes to some kind of church.
  11. Good for you Mike. "No Deacons" is always a plausible option, especially for small churches.
  12. And so it goes and has gone that way for many years now. This is the reason that when and if Deacons are chosen they must be deeply spiritual men, well versed in Scripture and with a Godly understanding of what the office of Deacon consists of. Even more important is what the office does NOT consist of.
  13. I have always believed that they were first called Christians at Antioch because of their likeness to Christ and His teaching and life. In other words the people saw Christ in His people.
  14. My all time favorite; pork loin roast, with potatoes and gravy. There were no leftovers.
  15. That sounds about the way my mother made them Invicta. I think she added a bit of chopped onion too.
  16. That sounds wonderful Invicta. I have not had fish cakes since I was a child. My mother used to make them quite often. I have lost her recipe. Do you have a recipe you would care to share?
  17. Most folks here know of my position regarding allowing our congregations to be influenced by forces outside of our own local church. In this respect I cannot help but think that there could be no NFIB "movement" if the pastors of our local churches were not allowing themselves to be influenced as "followers of men" rather than followers of Jesus. If we are feeding our own flock properly there is no reason for them to look outside of their own local church. If our people are taught properly they will reject error themselves just as a mirror reflects a true image of that which is placed in front of it. The Steven Andersons of this world could have no influence outside of their own congregations without pastors and other church leaders being influenced by them. Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Now someone might argue that those who are influenced by the errors of others can in turn influence our members from within our congregations. Again, if we are following Jesus and not men, we will be teaching and preaching truth and correct doctrine. If we are doing this under the leadership of The Holy Spirit, then the truth will prevail and serve to "weed out" possible trouble makers. 1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. It is difficult for some pastors, as well as church members to go through this process, but preaching and adhering to the truth will result in separation, as it should in order to maintain the following verse: Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. What I have said above could be encapsulated in this one verse: Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
  18. Baptistgunslinger, you are replying to a post that is over three years old, posted by someone that had just joined the forum and only made this one post and never came back.
  19. These six words, out of the rest of the text, just about says it all. It pretty much says you wore the name as a garment. i.e. Put it on when it suits you and take it off when you want to be something else.
  20. Well done Bro. Alan. The life and testimony of Joseph should and can be an inspiration and source of Godly instruction for all true believers, even us these many centuries later.
  21. Sister Ronda, words fail me this morning as I read your announcement. I have prayed for you on reading this post and will continue to pray. Please know that your time here on these forums has not been in vain. Many, myself included have been blessed by not only your presence here, but also by your life, faith, ability and dedication to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am also thankful to our God for His mercy, love, grace and promises to be with us through all the storms of life. He has reinforced these things as evidenced by your life and testimony. Thank you for having the courage to share this most intimate information with us. Go with God knowing that you have been loved and appreciated by those who your life has come in contact with.
  22. Well done Bro. Alan. This puts the events directly following the Great Tribulation in perspective. I am always amazed that there are people that will insist that Israel is back in the land after the events of 1948, while at the same time disregarding the fact that The Great tribulation has not yet happened and is yet future. God has not yet gathered His people(Israel) back into the land as prophesied.
  23. I agree with Alan, a blessing indeed. Wonderful thoughts for a new day.
  24. Gary, I just saw that this thread was posted in 2014. I don't know why it popped up as new. I used an adhesive for the first year and hated it. I had a friend that had dentures and never used adhesive. I asked him how he could keep his teeth in and eat without them flopping around. he said you just had to get used t it and the only way to do that was to just not put adhesive on and you would adjust. He was right, I use no adhesive at all and can eat anything I like without a problem. Apples? no problem....corn on the cob? no problem. You should give it a try, you will be amazed at the freedom and confidence you feel.
  25. I will pray for you Bro. Gary. I had this done many years ago and have never regretted it for a minute. I can truthfully say that I would much rather have good fitting dentures than my original teeth.
