    How can you be accurate about a man who refuses to be accurate? For accuracy you have to have known dimensions but his whole mindset is about not being molded to or by anything tangible. He's "free in Christ" after all... unbounded by pesky rules regulations, religion, and labels....And you can be too! for the low low price of a few devotional books every year that all have his picture on them.

    We were blessed today with meeting 2bLikeJesus and his wife today. They visited our services and then we went out for lunch. Sweet fellowship, good food, and godly friends. Always a good mixture.

    The problem (if I am reading your posts correctly) is that you are looking for a majority teaching from IB. This may be to either: A) Use such teaching as your means to "give an answer to every man", or B) use the results as a means to later determine whether you can (or should) stay with or withdraw from IB as a whole as opposed to an individual IBC.
    I would contend that you should (and perhaps this is your intent, though it is not the impression I get from your posts) study out the subject in the Word of God. Should you go ahead and look at the various angles, explanations, logic, verses, and refutations espoused by all "camps"? Sure, but don't look at any of them on the basis of a "majority rules" decision.
    Only then can you be "ready to give an answer to every man" and be "fully persuaded" in your own mind.

    Just try to remember that this "model prayer" was given as an example, it was not meant to be repeated by rote. Jesus gave us this so that we would understand the things our own personal prayer should contain. Our prayers should be personal and unique to our life and situations and walk with our God, not just something to be repeated over and over again.

    Jim_Alaska reacted to HappyChristian in Our Church...   
    Linda is at the hospital in Seattle today. Too far, with Randy's injury, for us to go.  The procedure is not as invasive as the first one, but is still a biggie. They nicked her spinal cord during the last surgery, and so were not able to finish what they needed to do (they had to spend the time repairing the nick). She has had good and bad days - a lot of pain, especially in her right leg, from the damage to the spinal cord. That problem might never clear up.
    Her husband has had all the testing done. His biopsy came back as lung cancer, stage 3B. The B means it has spread to the lymph nodes.  Would appreciate prayer for them and their family.

    I should add that the ONLY REASON I went to the website to investigate is because of his accusatory post towards Alan.
    I generally don't post about such people, preferring to leave them alone. But when someone accuses a solid man like Alan in this way, I investigate to see who is right. I like Alan, but he is only a man and I am sure he would happily admit that he is prone to mistakes, as are we all. As such I check to see who is telling it like really is.
    In my opinion, Alan is far more trustworthy than this mcmillinministries guy.

    Matt,
    As I expressed in my personal message to you here on Online Baptist, I would send you a personal e-mail to your matt@mcmillen.com address once I set up our e-mail account here in the States. We just returned from overseas today and I am still in the process of setting up our home and office. 
    Just a few minutes ago I was able to send you an e-mail requesting information concerning your ministry and to try and ascertain exactly what information was not accurate in my 6/9/2019 post as quoted above. 
    You clearly stated, "None of the stuff in this thread is accurate about me." But, you did not give one example. To me, that is wrong and not honest. When you accuse a person in a public forum of stating an inaccurate statement and not give the reason why the individual gave an inaccurate statement, in public, and then tell everyone to send a private e-mail stating why the individual stated an inaccurate statement, that is wrong. Again, what you did was wrong. If you are going to accuse us, and me as I made a statement, than you need to publicly state your doctrinal statement, background, ministry, the church you are affiliated with, publicly.
    I did review your mattmcmillenministries.com/about/ website, and as far as I can read, I cannot accept your statement that all that I said was inaccurate. On your website you have no doctrinal statement, no background information, and no church affiliation statement.
    As far as I am concerned, your statement, "None of the stuff in this thread is accurate about me" was publicly stated as a fact without publicly stating why ALL our statements were inaccurate, was wrong and dishonest.
    Alan

    Well, this is a thread about the beauty of creation, right? 😀 My guys are pretty handsome, and there are some nice trees in the background.
    This was taken on Father's Day. The second year in a row we've been able to spend it with our son, after many years without him.

    Yes but you clearly denote it as:
    Christians don't have a "passover week of unleavened bread". It is not accurate. It is not a true statement. It is a confusing statement. It in no way relates anything official in Christianity. Christians and nowhere commanded to keep Passover nor the feast of unleavened bread. They are not Christian memorials, they are Jewish memorials.

    Jim_Alaska reacted to Alan in Coming pole shift   
    As I previously brought out, there is no physical sun nor moon in eternity. Also, Revelation 22:5, states, "And there shall no night there; and they need no candle, neither the light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."
    As previously stated, Isaiah 60:19-20 is absolutely talking about eternity and not the 1000 Year Reign of Christ on the earth. Therefore, there is no moon and sun  to create any type of shadow, especially, a "pole shift" in relationship to Isaiah 60:19-20. The concept of a "pole shift" is not scientific nor is it biblical.

    The "I" in IFB stands for Independent. As such, each church is free to adopt their own set of rules. IFB is not a denomination, convention, or association, so there is no "one rule applies to all" position among Independent Baptist Churches.

    Due to the nature of the churches being independent in their autonomy, a percentage of what is believed, practiced or condemned by Independent Baptists (or Independent Fundamental Baptists, or Bible Believing Baptists, or Independent Bible Believing Baptists, or Unaffiliated Baptists, or Unaffiliated Independent Baptists - just to include some of the independently chosen monikers I've seen, get the idea yet? i - n - d - e - p -e - n - d - e - n - t) is not calculable (and can only be assumed) because there is not even a source that list ALL of the IBCs in the USA, much less outside of the US.

    So? It is describing the cherubim and how they move about. It doesn’t need to be anything weird, wacky, or go beyond the Bible. It is referring to spiritual beings. I doubt they are using some physical ship to travel about, even if it is hard to fully understand what they are portraying.

    Thanks for the update LuAnne, sounds like he is recovering albeit slowly. Please tell Randy to not take chances, get a cane and use it. I hated the thought of doing that, but found out the hard way that it is better than falling. I have been using a cane not for three years nd use it with every step I take, not matter where I walk, even around the house.

    Hmmm... the phraseology here in the Hebrew admits of the likely possibility that this is referring to the immense size of Nineveh: to cover the entire city on foot, preaching as he went, would require three days. Thus it takes some time before the message reaches everyone in town and makes its way to the palace. :2cents

    Thank you @Bob Tuttle for the links.
    I do however think because of because of the little influence that Steve Anderson has in the IFB, that we give him too much exposure sometimes.

    No, I did not know you had neuropathy, Jim. I'm sorry to hear that. My dad had it, and it caused him quite a few issues there towards the end. His was degeneration due to diabetes, which is apparently the same reason Randy has it beginning.
