  1. Brethren, Our next lesson on the local church will be in 2 Thessalonians 1:1-4 God bless you all. Alan
  2. 1 Thessalonians 2:14, "Followers of Other Good Churches" "For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews." 1 Thessalonians 2:14 The apostle Paul had previously shown how the churches, which were regional, or local, in Judaea, a region of Israel, had suffered intense persecution by their own countrymen. The Thessalonian saints willingly followed the examples of the churches, or assemblies, of the saints in Judaea in following Christ. And, because of their faith in following Christ, and His doctrines, the Thessalonian church was persecuted by their own countrymen. The apostle Paul is very clear in his meaning. The churches in Judaea were separate congregations of believers from the churches in Thessalonica. The two regions, or local areas, were not connected, or governed, in any manner, with any ecclesiastical hierarchy, bishop, Pope, Priest, denomination, or other governmental body. The church, as a body of believers, in Thessalonica willingly made the decision to follow the example of the good churches in Judaea. A true New Testament church does not have any ecclesiastical body over them. All New Testament churches, or assemblies, are independent and make their own decisions in church matters.
  3. John, Your meaning was clear the first time your made it. SAB76 miss-used your clear meaning. Your second meaning is also very clear and worth repeating. Alan
  4. Yep, after 2,400,789 posts, the winner will be So sad!
  5. One of the books that Carl Schmidt wrote was a biography on Don Sisk. Don Sisk is the Emeritus Mission Director of BIMI. I have met brother Don Sisk at a Missions Conference, many years ago, and consider him a man of God. Don Sisk, to my knowledge, is IFB. Here is a link to BIMI and Don Sisk: https://www.bimi.org/content/abSisk.php
  6. Wretched, I agree with your writings on globalism, socialism, leftists, the billionaires and there agenda, etc... except for one point. I do not think, but will not argue the point, that the 'lie' of 2 Thessalonians 2:11 is the lie of "globalism" and all that it entails. It is my firm understanding that the United Nations, the globalists, Socialists, etc... are leading up the one-world government that will be led by the anti-Christ. It is my firm understanding that the events on Genesis 11:1-10, the tower of babel, will be repeated on a world-wide scale with the United Nations, and the globalists, at the head. So, I agree with the article except that I believe the 'lie' is not the globalist movement.
  7. Quite frankly, the title of this thread is misleading and somewhat deceitful. The title implies that Baptists do not fast and therefore Baptists are not spiritual and do not obey the admonition to fast. This is one of the reasons why I have never commented on this thread the years that I have been on Online Baptist. In other words, the title of this thread already insinuates that "Baptists" do not fast which is an error. Quite a few "Baptists" do fast; they just don't tell everyone about it. Why? The Lord Jesus said, "Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father, which seest in secret, shall reward thee openly." Matthew 6:16-18 Normally, when I fast, and I am a Baptist, only my wife knows as she cooks the food I would normally eat and maybe the children. 'nuff said.
  8. Maybe, maybe not. Rumour has it that the the, Last one to post in this thread wins,' is not in the original Greek. So, it depends one which manuscript you are reading.
  9. Looking forward to that day: especially chapter 20-22.

    Can anybody give us an example of an IFB church having a church app?

  12. If the mods do decide on some sort of introduction, it would help all of us if we had more than a brief introduction. In other words, some introductions are maybe a sentence or two in length, with no real testimony, no real church affiliation, a very broad statement of salvation, work in the church, etc... Some of the introductions are so generic, short, broad in scope and meaning that they are almost useless in letting us know who we are dealing with. Maybe the mods can suggest in some way a paragraph on salvation, church affiliation, whether or not the individual is in the ministry, etc... Also, as with the last two individuals, in the last two weeks, they joined and immediately they got into a very controversial subject and we really do not know much of their background. It is obvious to me that the last two individuals joined Online Baptist knowing what we believed and came just to cause trouble and stir us up. I suspect they are laughing behind our backs and enjoying the fireworks that they cause. And, probably, except for one or two instances, the malcontents are not even taking the time to get to know us, be friendly to us, or have some fellowship.
