  1. Public Notice about Mr. Phil COBle. Phil COBle did not tell us the full title of his book, "Breaking the Bondage from Independent Baptist." He neglected to give us the full title of the book. Look for yourself on amazon.com Phil COBle is misleading the brethren. The full title is, "Breaking the Bondage from Independent Baptist to Christianity: Breaking Away from a Legalistic Religion." Mr. Phil COBle, I now hesitate to call him brother, informs the readers of his books, he has two books now in print, that Independent Baptists are not Christians, and independent Baptist churches are 'Legalistic." Book Number 2: "From Freedom to Freedom: Breaking Away from Independent Baptist." The title says it all brethren. Mr. COBle broke away from being an independent Baptist. And, he claims all those folks in independent Baptist churches are in 'bondage." So, according to Mr.COBle, if you are in an independent Baptist church you need to escape the bondage of a false religion and get converted to Christianity. Isaiah 5:20 is still in the Book, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Brethren, do not be suprised when Mr. Phil COBle puts out Book Number 3.
  2. I really enjoyed reading the lesson on Habakkuk, in devotionals. I would encourage all of you to read it. AlanTaiwan

  3. Covenanter, Thank you very much of rhe sermon on Habakkuk and reference to Britian becoming an land of infidels. At one time Britian, like America, was a great country due to the work and faith of Christians. America is in sad decline through many reasons. One of which is the open acceptance of sin, contemporary (filthy) music, corrupted new translations, and non-soul winning activity in many churches. In fact, the true soul winner is made fun of and derided by many in the denominational churches. Not only is sin prevalent in our land but there is a tolerance of sin, worldliness, a lack of true holiness preaching in the pulpit by mainline denominations. And, when a preacher does preach against sin he is called 'legalist' or 'Pharisee' or 'non loving' and compalined about not only by the world, but by worldly saints. I thank God in heaven by the many independent Baptist churches that are trying not only to live a holy life in these last days and try to save America from further moral and spiritual decline. May God bless you and your efforts. AlanTaiwan
  4. Covenanter, The Book of Zechariah deserves more attention from all of us. There are some finer points of prophecy that need to be brought out. Thank you for your exposition. AlanTaiwan

    Praise the Lord! As a word of testimony. We have visited Riverside Baptist Church in Hutchinson, KS and know of the ministry of Bro. Al Beemer. Although I do not know Bro. Beemer personaly, the pastor gave me some insight of the ministry and a tour of the buses and how they take good care of them mechanically. They understand that the buses are for the work of the Lord and to the brethren that I met it was very OBvious that they sell the buses for the salvation of the souls of men and to help churches and not for financial gain. Riverside Baptist Church is a fine soul-winning, people loving, missionary minded, straight as an arrow, KJV church. From what I have seen, even though Hutchinson, KS is out of the way, I think I can recommend going out of the way to consider them in order to OBtain a bus.
  6. Brethren, To our moderators I want to thank all of you for your continued posting of the 'Way of Life,' articles by Bro. Cloud. And for Spirit led Pastors like Pastor Steve Rogers. Certain segments of fundamentalism are truly departing from the faith. I have numerous, very spiritual, friends in the ministry who graduated from BJU. They, and I personally, are sickened by the departure of the faith, especiall in the area of music and fellowship of BJU under the tuteledge of Steve Pettit. When I was a lost young man listening to the rock music in the '60's I never expected to hear the same deplorable beat, sound effects, crooning of the singers, and Satanic beat in churches. One of the reasons why I got saved was due to my lack of joy and happiness in my previous lifestyle. All, may I repeat, all, contemporay music does not honor God, is fleshly, worldy, some of it is outright Satanic, and is for the making of filthy lucre and to attract a crowd. Those churches who use comtemporary music to attract a crowd are like Rick Warren and preach a 'soft' gospel. Some don't preach a gospel at all. Certainly they do not preach repentance nor holy living. By the way, the word 'contemporary' music is a misnomer. It should be 'fleshly." Excellent article by Bro. Cloud.
  7. To PcOBle1, Hear is my reply: "The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going." Proverbs 14:1 It is prudent, and spiritual, to check out facts, get clear and forthright answers to honest questions. And to discover the true intentions and motives of talebearers. It would help you, and all of us, if you did a word study on the word 'prudent.' I know that the world, and worldly saints, despise the word 'prudent.' But, it is a good spiritual charicteristic in the heart of the believer. "The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: Therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with." Proverbs 17:14 I see no spiritual value in continuing a useless discussion with you until you honestly, not piously, consider what you have done in writing a book that Satan is using to hurt the cause of the Lord Jesus Christ among good, Spirit filled men in the ministry. And, then boast about it. Shame on you. OnLine Baptist is a forum for sincere and honest independent Baptists to discuss things that are important to them and to have an honest discussion among friends and brethren. It is not to spew out malicious slander. Therefore, "Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit." Proverbs 26:5 Unless I feel, by sincere prayer, to continue talking with you, I am terminiating my discussion with you in any thread. In answer to Genevanpreacher, Amen! and Praise the Lord! Thank you brother! You have restored my belief to continue with other threads on OnLine Baptist. AlanTaiwan
  8. PcOBle1, When a person seeks the truth and wants to know whether or not a person who slanders another person is telling the truth, and to prevent a talebearer from speading gossip, and in order to collaborate the accusation, two men must bear witness as per my previous post. I never expected you to tell any names, nor do I expect you to tell us the unanamed, "son" of the legalistic pastor. A talebearer, gossiper, or a false witness, is not interested in others learning the full truth. A talebearer is only interested in hurting other people. If you are serious about not wanting the name of the 'legalistic' pastor, the 'legalistic' church, or the son of the 'leagalistic' pastor not known publicly; why not tell it to a moderator, Heartstings, John81, or me in a private post? Is that not fair and according to the scriptures? Quite frankly that would prOBably end this thread. "He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; When he speaketh fair, believe him not; for there are seven abominations in his heart. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole concregration." Proverbs 26:24-26 It may help you be delivered from further 'bondage' and further 'hurt' and further 'loose lips' if you read the Book of Proverbs closely. The word dissemble means: "to conceal the real fact, motives, intention or sentiments under some pretense." Maybe a word study on dissembleth, talebearing, or witness, would help you in your effort to find peace of mind and heart. Talebearing, or gossiping, or spreading information that cannot be verified, among brethren, especially a man of God in the ministry, is an abomination in the sight of God. My previous post still stands. Two verifiable witnesses must be in agreement to even 'hear', not, 'prove' an accusation against a pastor of a church. One last thought. I previously assumed that Philip COBle is your real name. Is it a pen name, or an alias, in order to sell books? I know you piously told us that you would not keep any profit; but at this juncture in our communication I am somewhat hesitant to believe that is your real motive and intention. Will you next book be entitled, "Legalism Among Independent Baptist in the Internet." or, "How I broke the Bondage From Legaism In the Internet Age." or "The Fall of the Independent Baptist Movement due to Legalism." In my incomplete knowledge of the thoughts and intents of your heart, at this time in this discussion, I feel that your real motive is to hurt the cause of the independent Baptist Church movement. I, as many other independent Baptists, abhor real 'legalism,' hypocrisy,' insincerity,' talebearing,' in any independent Baptist Chruch and if we could all of us would denounce it when appropriate. Many folks will not buy your current book as you have a personal vendetta against independent Baptist churches, but, let me say this my brother in Christ, I hope that you are a brother in Christ, I, and a lot of other brethren, will be sure to buy your next book to see how you slander us and malign the independent Baptist churches. "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Proverbs 6:16-19
  9. Proverbs 1:5 Analyzing the Chinese word, ‘Hear.’ 「聽」 Introduction Proverbs 1:5 says, “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.” A wise man will listen to the scriptures and OBtain counsel. The Chinese language is unique, interesting, and very complex. Also, within their own culture, the Chinese language has a written testimony of the mind of God. The Chinese language is an ideographic language. It uses lines, called, ‘strokes,’ and, every individual word, is called a, ‘character.’ And, within every ‘character’ are other ‘characters.’ Finally, every line within the word has to written in proper sequence. I did not make up the sequence of this message; a Chinese dictionary made the sequence. The ‘character,’ or word, listen in the Chinese is comprised of six different Chinese words put together to form one word: the word listen or to hear. Let us breakdown the word, ‘Listen’ in Chinese and see what the Bible says. Also, we will list these words in the standard sequence that the Chinese use in writing their language. First Chinese Word - Ear 耳 Proverbs 20:12, “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.” God created our ears for us to have the ability to hear words. To God words are important as they reveal what a person has in its heart. We need to be careful what we say and what we hear. God gave us two ears and one mouth so we will listen more than we speak. Proverbs 28:9, “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.” God gave us the Law in order for us to understand His holiness, His righteousness, His will, and our need for a Saviour. The Law is contained within the Old Testament. When a person, whether saved or lost, does not want to hear the Law than even his prayer is an abomination. As one studies the Old Testament Law he realizes that he comes far short of the righteousness of God and realizes that the Lord Jesus truly fulfilled the Law of God. The more we learn the Law the more we appreciate the grace of the Lord Jesus. Second Chinese Word - King 王 “For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.” Psalm 47:2 God rules the affairs of this earth from His throne in heaven. God is in full control and He knows exactly what He is doing and why He allows all events to happen. Revelation 19:16, "And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” One day, hopefully soon, the Lord Jesus is coming back to this earth to rule and reign for 1000 years in His Millennial Kingdom. The first time that the Lord Jesus came was to suffer the penalty of our sins as a sacrificial Lamb. The next time that He comes to the earth, not in the clouds, will be as King over the earth. Third Chinese Word - Cross 十 The Lord Jesus was crucified on the cross of Calvary for us. He took our sins and died in our place. God will not allow sin into heaven. Nor can a sinner atone for his own sins using any form of works or religious ceremony, God will only accept a perfect, or sinless, sacrifice for our sin. The Lord Jesus is sinless. Therefore, He was able to be qualified as our sacrifice for sin. Apart from the Lord Jesus, no other man is sinless. The Lord Jesus became sin for us that we might be saved. 2 Corinthians 5:21 declares, “For he [God] hath made him [Jesus] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” The gospel is the death, burial and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. When we believe the gospel, in our heart, then we can be saved. Fourth Chinese word - Blood. 血 God plainly said in Leviticus 17:11, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh and atonement for the soul.” God requires a blood sacrifice in order to save the souls of mankind from an eternity in hell. The blood sacrifices in the Old Testament were never intended to justify the sinner. The sacrificial Law was instituted by God to show mankind the need for a sacrifice for sins and the coming suffering Messiah that could atone for their sins as a sacrificial Lamb. Isaiah chapter 53. “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29 The Lord Jesus was the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world. When the Lord Jesus died on the cross He shed His blood for our sins. The Lord Jesus became our blood sacrifice for the salvation of our souls. The scriptures are very clear that only the blood of Christ shed on the cross can make an atonement, or redeem, our souls. Hebrews 9:11 and 12 state, “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once unto the Holy place, having OBtained eternal redemption for us.” The blood of animals, and any other man made sacrifice, cannot OBtain our salvation. Only the blood of Christ, shed on the cross of Calvary, can save our souls. We need to hear what God says about the blood of Christ. It is very important. Fifth Chinese Word - One. 一 In Acts 4:10 - 12 Peter lets us know that, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Belief in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way any person can be saved. Belief in the name of Muhammad, the Pope, Joseph Smith, Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu, or some other man, cannot save the soul. The Lord Jesus said Himself in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” All religious attempts to OBtain salvation through good works, earning merit, ceremonies, striving to keep the Law, or some other religious belief, will fail to save a soul from an eternity in hell. Except through the Lord Jesus, there is no other way into heaven. The Sixth Chinese Word - Heart 心 The things that we believe in our hearts are those things that are dear unto us. We love with our hearts. What we believe in our hearts will guide our actions and create our character. The same thing is true with salvation. A heart belief is necessary in order to have salvation. A lot of people know about the Lord Jesus with their head, but they do not know Him with their heart. Salvation is a heart belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul said this to the Romans, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9 and 10 When a person truly believes with their hearts that Christ died for their sins, and that He was buried and rose again the third day, then that person can be saved. Paul said further, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans10:13. If you are not saved through the Lord Jesus, than why not right now ask Him in sincere prayer to save your soul and give you eternal life in heaven. Conclusion In Luke 9:37 God, speaking audibly from heaven, said, “This is my beloved Son: hear him.” The Lord Jesus is the beloved Son of God and we should hear, and follow, Him. The Lord Jesus spoke of those things that God told Him to say. The Lord Jesus said in John 12:49 and 50, “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.” A wise man will listen to the Lord Jesus speak in order to learn the will of God.
  10. Encamped along the Hills of Light. The finding of an "x" by Genevanpreacher was unique and commendable.

    Thanks for the reminder of Ecclesiastes 12:12
  12. Excellent article by Brother Cloud. I had previously read the biOBraphy on LeTourneau. I would suggest all of the brethren to read the article and if possble purchase the book. A lot of the used book stores, secular and Christian, have his biography. That is how I bought mine. The life of LeTourneau is an example of how God can use any one; in any business, in any occupation, whether in the ministry or not, who decides to step out in real faith. Please note I said real faith. LeTourneau's faith produced real works as the Book of James, and the lives of the Old Testament saints, teaches. Thank you again for the encouraging article.
  13. Real good post by and some spiritual wisdom by John81 that I think all of us can learn from. Thank you for your insight concerning the history, and scope, of the issue on this thread.
  14. PcOBle1, As of yet you have not answered the question asked by, "I am Chief." What region is the church in? I might also ask, as so many of the other brethren are thinking: What is the name of the church that Phil colbe thinks is legalistic? Besides asking you to wear a white shirt and a tie, what is so leagalistic about it? What is the name of the current independent Baptist Church that you are attedning? I am sorry that you felt in bondage at the, yet, unamned, in your terms, legalistic,church and unnamed, in your term, legalistic, pastor. All of us have emotional prOBlems and it the responsibility of the pastor to help each individual member. The Lord Jesus does not want any of His children have emotional bondage. The Lord gave me victory in my own personal life over my own emotional distresses. And, He used a godly indepedent pastor in doing so. God works through preachers preaching the word. I did read your introduction to your book, "Breaking the Bondage from Independent Baptist," for sell on Amazon. com. The introduction was infammatory towards independent Baptist churches and openly gave the impression that the independent Baptist Movement was legalistic. After reading the introduction I am somewhat thinking, again I may be in error due to your unwillingness to answer legitamate questions, that you are not a true independent Baptist. And, in my own sometimes erroneous thinking, you may just want to cause dissension within the independent Baptist ranks. Again, what is the name of the church and the name of the pastor. A true spiritual watchman, Isaiah 21:6, Ezekiel 33, will warn the people of legalistic churches by name and not by insinuation. Especially in a public forum as the internet. I ask this as a brother in the Lord Jesus. the Lord Jesus, in Matthew 18:15-17, commanded us to first go to the brother privately, then with two brothers, and if the individual does not repent, as you claim this unnamed pastor did not repent, than go to the church publicly. Did you follow the commandments of the Lord Jesus? Paul the Apostle further stated, "Against an elder [pastor] receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses." 2 Timothy 5:19 My brother, did you have another witness that this unnamed pastor is legalistic? Is this second brother mentioned further in the book? If you do not have another witness then you are deliberately disOBeying the Holy Spirit inspired command of the Lord Jesus Christ as Paul the Apostle wrote and you are causing dissension among the brethren.
  15. Wow! Is this Elmer Gantry when he first started out? I wonder how many bucks his parents made off of his cuteness? The Charismatic Charlatans, once in a while, have their children as a side show to their antics ( or circus, take your pick of words). If our charlatan ministers view this they will have visions of their children raking in the dough by performing marriages, funerals, and other religious gatherings for more loot and fame! Nothing like a child to work on the pursestings, (whoops! I should have said heart!), of the dumb sheep. Please read this disclaimer! Brethren, please take note, this is a facetious post and not to be taken as a picture of every charismatic church (maybe 90 percent, but not all!) and I do not want to purposely offend all of the brethren. Nor, do I want a brother giving me an example of how a independent Baptist chruch pastor is in the ministry for the money. I am sure there are, but, they are not the majority . Every hypocrite and back slidden saint in the world targets any independent minister that goes bad. Every once in a while I like a little "religious" humor. Every once in a while I take a peek, on the internet of course, to our friend of the cloth, Kenneth Hagin, or some other charlatan, for a good laugh. Man, look at the flashy clothes that these brethren wear! And the antics! And, I guess I better claim another disclaimer as I do not follow the clown business very close, I guess that every clown needs a flashy wardrOBe to perform his antics before his audience.
  16. If you re-read my post I hope that you notice that it was not all inclusive, nor was it a doctrinal thesis, just a reminider that so many folks poke fun of Independent Baptist churches that it get ludicrous. so, I was being somewhat facetious. OBviously I do not know exactly what PcOBle 1 has a prOBlem with but I do know that a lot of times when a person does not like a preacher preaching against sin he calls the preacher, and church, "legalistic," "non loving," "Pharissic," etc.... you catch my drift? I have no intention in buying, or reading, a book that details an individuals hatred towards any church.
  17. Once you get the hymn set to music see if you can post it so we all can hear it.
  18. Dear Bro. Jordan, I do hope that the pastoral counsel of Pastor Markle has helped you as he has deep understanding on the issues of this day, eschchatology and the insight to discern between correct and incorrect doctrine. I did view the video on the,"Pre-Trib Rapture Hoax," by Pastor Sam Adams, Bellview, Florida, that you posted. Before I comment on that, Scofield did have some issues in his Reference Bible that are erroneous and and in his personal life he had prOBlems, but, his belief and biblical view on a Pre-Triblulation Rapure was not one of these errors. He was correct. Also, the attitude of Pastor Sam Adams was demeaning, spiteful and slanderous. His animostiy towards Brother Scofield was very evident throughout the video and typical of a heretic towards men of God who teach the truth. Pastor Adams in eschatological error. The word of the Lord Jesus, and Paul the Apostle, clearly teach that the church, I mean real believers, not false Christians as found in many denominiational churches, will be taken out of the world as taught in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. Please note that Brother Scofield also notes the difference between true believers and professing false believers. The Tribulation Period is a time wherof the, "wrath of the lamb," will be poured out on the whole world. Revelation 6:16 & 17, "And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" God is on sitting on His throne, the Lamb is the Lord Jesus, and the great day of his wrath is the 7 Year Tribulation Period. The church is not on the earth with those unbelievers during the time of the 7 Year Tribulation Period. The scriptures clearly delineate between a time of personal tribulation, or persecution, see Revelation 2:10, and the 7 Year Tribulation Period, Revelation chapter 6:1 though 19:21. In his great discourse on the end times the Paul the Apostle clearly taught that the church will not experience the time of the wrath of God, and of the Lamb, that takes place during the 7 Year Tribulation Period on the earth. In a clear reference to the 7 Year Tribulation Period, Paul states in 1 Thessalonians 5:9, "For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to OBtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ." Please study the context, 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 and 5 along with 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, very carefully. In 2 Thessalonians 2:7, "...until he [the Holy Spirit ] be taken out of the way." When the church leaves in the Rapture the Holy Spirit is taken out of the earth due to the fact that the Holy Spirit is indwelt in every believer. The work of the Holy Spirit during the Chruch Age is completed and God will once again use the Jewish race to complete His work in the 7 Year Tribulation Period. As a side note. God has a plan for the elect sons of Israel that will be clearly presented to the whole earth during the 7 Year Tribulation Period and the accompaning, literal, Millenial Period as clearly taught in Revelation 20:1-6. Afterwards, the Lord Jesus gave this promise to all the churches in Revelation 3:10, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth." The Lord Jesus, not Darby or Scofield, plainly stated, to all the churches, that He would personally keep the church, the true church, from the hour of tempatation, or the 7 Year Tribulation Period. The prOBlem with Pastor Adams and his teaching (as with the cults, heretics, Charismatics, Calvanists, and denominational teachers), is that their spiritual insight of the end times is deficient and that they cannot rightly divide the word of truth. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 This is a spiritual prOBlem and not a prOBlem with language abilities, Greek, or scholarship. In his teaching of the Pre-Tribluation Rapture, Brother Scofield was correct. You may read his comments on the matter on his notes on 1 Thesalonians 4:13-18 and Revelation 4:1 Brother Jordan, I do hope that this little reminder lesson is a blessing and a help to you personally and to other saints who are confused due to the numerous false prophets abounding in our day and age. I understand your confusion and my only desire is to help you in your walk with the Lord Jesus. In the love of Christ, AlanTaiwan
  19. I appreciate your message on James 2:1 and how you emphasize the loving concern that James and Paul for their converts and others. They spoke the truth, firmly and harshly at times, with a godly love in their hearts. Both of these men, and the other godly men in the New Testament, walked with the Lord Jesus and the love of the Lord Jesus was a part of their lives. As noted also in the Book of Galatians, because the Galatians were trying to be justified by the Law Paul was fearful that the Lord Jesus, and His grace, was not a part of, "...formed in you.." in their lives. Paul knew the Law and the importance of it but Paul also realized the the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ and it was never to used to justify a person. As the Law had no respector of persons in its judgments and love so the Lord Jesus and His followers should be impartial in their love, judgement, concern, and help to others. Thank you for your fine message. God loves all men and wants all men to have eternal life in heaven!
  20. Excellent message and exposition on Ezekiel chapter 3. The reference to the New Testament minister of the gospel in Hebrews 13:7 is appropriate and helpful. Thank you for the mesage.
  21. If a person is saved he is free in Christ in any environment. Such as; jail, a legalistic Baptist Church, a Roman Catholic Church, a Mormon Temple or a Buddhist Monastery. I started to attend an Independent Baptist Church years ago and it was one of the best spiritual decisions the Lord ever led me to make. The worst legalistic independent Baptist Chruch is far, far better than any denominational church or any other type of chuch in this Laodicean Age. The Apostle Paul was free in every jail cell he ever sat in.
  22. A couple of the reasons why most Independent Baptists like the Scofield Bible are: Scofield follows Bishop Usshers' chronology of the Bible, the dates found in the upper side column in each book is excellent, some of, not all, his notes on prophecy are also excellent, and most of his cross references in the center column are also trustwothy, and his maps found in the back are notewothy. Also, most of the other Reference Bibles notes and cross references reflect the author's denomination perference. Even most independent baptist do not agree with his teaching on the Gap Theory, and some his notes, the Scofield Reference Bible is better than any one else's.
  23. Another excellent article by Dr.Morris. Whoever puts these articles on by Creation Science should be congratulated. As Covenanter brought out, the Gap Theory as taught by Scofield and others, is not biblical, scientific, or even logical. Once a person truly believes the Bible as it is written the beauty of creation, and the plan of God, unfolds in a wonderful manner throughout the scriptures, science, history, and eternity. God is perfect in all of His works in the spiritual and physical realm. Again, thank you for the excellent article on Genesis 1:1 and the new year. AlanTaiwan
  24. Another excellant article by David Cloud. It would behoove all of the brethren to read the article.
  25. Yea and Amen! Great expostion of the scriptures. The Centurion is great example of faith in the words and authority of the Lord Jesus. May we all remember that the original title of the KJV 1611 was,"Authorized Version." The word of God is our authority in all matters. Again, thank you for the great lesson on Luke 7:2-10
