  1. This Scripture doesn't sound like an alien abduction to me. Besides, there is no such thing as aliens or their abductions. 1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
  2. Sounds and looks good Invicta.....except for the mushrooms. I dearly hate mushrooms, although I do know that many people love them. To me they taste like fungus. By the way....who's the old guy?
  3. Regarding the original post; salvation is not a system of "do's and don'ts. Salvation is instead about having the blood of Jesus Christ applied to your heart and soul as payment for your sin. It is about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which, if it is real will result in a changed nature that does not "want" to sin. 2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
  4. Which simply means that the thread is stagnant and some of the participants may not even be members or even visit the board any more.
  5. Thanks for your thoughts bro. Alan. I agree that he is promoting his own agenda, just as others before him have promoted their own pet agendas. But as far as destroying OLB, it's not going to happen. All the others with their own agendas have come and gone without affecting any change in this forum's purpose or even succeeding in changing the minds of those here who know what they believe and why they believe it. Inevitably they are all seen for what they really are; trouble makers. He has already got one moderator warning, it's just a matter of time before he does himself in. Speaking of things such as warnings, I see that he has 14 minus points on his reputation; I may be wrong but I do think that this is a record. I can't remember even seeing one minus point for anyone else on this board. Please notice that I say these things publicly and to avoid being accused of talking behind a brother's back. I don't think he is beyond hope, God is in the business of changing people, therefore while there is life there is hope. I cannot help but think that not having one person agree with his agenda and so many in opposition to it that it may have a positive affect on him at some point. Mr 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
  6. Bro. Alan, I think there is still a misunderstanding. Mr. Roby did not make that mess of corrections and strike-outs, that was done by me. I'm going to try to make this plainer and perhaps will need to delete some posts that were posted in thinking that Mr. Roby did the corrections.
  7. This was not done by Mr. Roby. I did it to show the difference between what he posted and what the KJV says. Sorry for the confusion.
  8. Now that's bizarre Bro. Jerry.
  9. From Online Baptist Rules: "Feel free to quote the Bible, if you do we ask that you use the KJV. This is done to avoid confusion. The Administrators and Moderators of this site believe that the KJV is Gods preserved Word for the English speaking people, and we ask that you respect that and use the KJV when quoting scripture."
  10. A fine sermon entry Jerry, thank you for posting it.
  11. Thank you Jerry, another rich blessing so early in my morning.
  12. Thank you for this devotion Bro. Jerry. It was a blessing to my heart. I have recently been through some things that allowed me to identify with what you have provided here. It is a great encouragement to know that even in our darkest hour The Lord has not forgotten us and will move to relieve us of our afflictions and earthly problems. If BroMatt doesn't see your question about moving this to your sermon section in a reasonable amount of time, I will try to move it for you.
  13. Thank you LuAnne. Please tell Randy that I have been praying diligently both morning and evening for his healing. I just wish I were closer to you to be able to provide some help, support and encouragement.

    I'll also be in prayer for you Jerry.
  15. Thanks for this Bro. Dave. I was going to add something very much like it to my last reply, but figured I had said enough.
  16. When I was first saved over forty years ago, I was taught first the basics of reading and studying the Bible. One of the first basics I remember is being taught that the italicized words were words that were added to facilitate the readers understanding. Silly me I thought everybody knew this, but I guess I was wrong. Now, for someone to come along at this late date and insist that this basic feature of italicized words is adding to Scripture, is disingenuous at best and deceitful at the worst.
  17. And of course you have access to and consult the "source" of each?
  18. If "no man knows for sure" how can a VALID version be identified?
  19. I am so thankful that my original missionary pastor was as learned and spiritual as he was. There came a time when he decided that he would teach on the Song of Solomon for our young church. He was wise enough to know that this book was very special, not to be taken lightly and should only be presented to his church once they were spiritually mature enough to understand it. Thus he did not go into this book while the church was still in its missionary stage, but instead he waited for a number of years after we had organized into a NT church. In preparation for his teaching series on this book he was extremely careful to prepare the church membership for a proper, Godly understanding of what they were about to study. It seems like I can still hear the words of caution he used, although he has gone to be with The Lord many years now. I remember him pointedly telling his flock that this book was very unique and a proper understanding of it in any study should, in the very first instance, be undertaken by a Godly and Spiritually mature teacher. This was the first prerequisite, the second was that those being taught should be spiritually mature enough to understand that although this book may contain language that was sexual in nature, it was not about sex.
  20. I must have a different KJV. I have been reading it for 44 years and have yet to find a goof or booboo.
  21. Well said LuAnne, thanks for that Godly advice.
  22. Thank you Salyan, well thought out and said. Lucian, you would be well served to closely study what Salyan has written here. Please don't just read the words over quickly, but study them and compare them to Scripture.
  23. Mt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
  24. I'm just a simple guy, but I think I can see a parallel between what Mr. Roby zeros in on and other so called "pet theories". We have had those that have passed through before trying to set us straight with their pet theory ideas. We see this also outside of our forum. They are always the ones that cannot seem to focus on anything outside of one issue that takes up their whole thought processes. We've seen it here in the form of just one that I will mention out of the many, and that is with the former member SFIC who has been banned , his sole issue in any interaction with others was with the tithe. Out in the real world outside of the Internet these folks can be seen promoting their pet theories such as; women wearing pants; women should wear hats; men wearing beards; universal and local church; the tithe. Anyway you get the idea. Although it may be interesting for some who have never heard these theories and the valid arguments against them to read for the first time, the proponent of these pet theories is almost never convinced of the error of his or her ways and ends up being banned or just moving along to what they consider easier targets. So, having said all of that it leaves my simple mind to wonder if the Bible itself might address situations such as these. Pr 18:2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself. Tit 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; If any of what I have written seems uncharitable I would offer this: 2Tim 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
