    SAB76,
    I've answered you biblically. I've answered the questions that you proposed in your last post. In fact, my answer(s) are in the post that immediately precede your latest post.
    I no longer see the purpose in continuing this "back and forth" conversation on my part.
    I don't mean to sound harsh, but it's going nowhere except in a circle. 
    Take care.

    It was a joy to have @Jordan Kurecki preach and present his work for us. It was good to to finally meet him after knowing him online for a few years. I want to encourage all you pastors out there to give him a call and have him present his work in your church, you will be blessed. Thank you Brother for coming to our small church and being a help to our people.

    I'm on my phone and can't answer in-depth...sorry.
    The qualifications apply to a MAN...not a child, adolescent, or teenager (in my opinion). That does away with "at any time".
    The qualifications also are the traits that he is publicly known by...this goes beyond what the man is now...it covers years. Why? Because of how he is known by those not only in the church...but how he is known by those who are "without". It takes a long time for a man to establish his reputation...especially by those who are "without".
    I know pastors who are popular in my community, but they don't meet the qualifications that God has ordained. Numerous church splits have resulted from these men...hard feelings and bitterness are the results. Many have adopted false doctrine...but they chalk it up to being persecuted...when neither they (nor the churches that elected them) held them to biblical qualifications.

    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.

    Sentences within a paragraph carry on the same thought. New Paragraphs carry on a related but new thought. 1st paragraph is about Bishops being a reflection of Christ and that their infidelity or loyalty towards Christ and how that carries over to their own wives. Second is about the "Abandonment" argument being a sign of a hard heart and a reason many lack power. The third is my general opinion that GENERAL disregard for the qualification (not just divorce) is the reason our churches lack the power of God.
    The qualifications for the OFFICE are there for a reason and all I am saying is that churches should strive to get and hold men to the Highest standard of those qualifications that they can for the sanctity of the OFFICE and not make excuses for getting minimally and questionably qualified men for the OFFICE. To make this about us "not forgiving men" or about "how well" God used men in other capacities who were not qualified for this office, is wrong, and are false arguments.

    OK, no mincing words. This reply is aimed at SAB76. The moderators have been fielding complaints from other members about your offensive manner in this thread. Divorce or some other doctrine is not the subject of this particular reply. Offensive language is the subject. Calling other Christians "Pharisaical" is offensive and not Christ like. I gave a warning back a few replies about this sort of thing. Once again you have chosen to ignore a moderator's warning in your reply that was worded in the following manner: "And I will keep stating what I have since the start. This is Pharisaical."

    Woah there big boy......The only place I remember John saying anything to do with "low calibre" is:
    And yet you accuse him of saying:
     
    You need to be careful with your accusations, for that is not what John said, nor even what he implied. In fact, almost exactly the opposite. He didn't say they were defiling the church, and he didn't restrict the reason to only divorce - in fact he didn't even designate divorce specifically.
    And yet you go on a rant about all the other problems with churches today saying that John was ignoring those and suggesting it was ALL ABOUT DIVORCE.
    In fact, John's statement includes, not excludes all of these things, because it is a general statement.
    This is very close to a false accusation.

    Alan reacted to Ukulelemike in Why Don't Baptist Fast   
    I have to say, I appreciate the honesty of those who admit they are too weak to fast. Honesty is a good thing, but it also implies you know you ought to do it, and you know it will bring your walk with Christ somewhere it has never been before. So I ask: Is it worth it to you? Do you want a better relationship?
    But I also warn you: like anything we do when we seek to grow in Christ, it has its inherent dangers. The last time I fasted, I fasted for a week, because I wanted to gain some wisdom and seek god's will, as well as begin to improve my work as a pastor. Shortly after starting, my wife got sick. They said it was nothing, but a few days later, she went into the emergency room and didn't leave the hospital for 5 months, severely ill, almost dying. Listening to some preaching sermons to try to gains some balance as I reeled over what was happening, a sermon by my old pastor, who himself has done serious fasting, warned that when we fast, we need to keep in mind that things may occur that seem devastating at the moment, but are happening as a response to the fasting done to grow, and that helped immensely, as I fully realized this was god's will for some reason, and that through it all, there would be some spiritual gain.
    So when you fast, if you're truly looking for spiritual results, things can happen that may seem hard, but remember, a tree only bears more and better fruit when it is properly pruned from time to time. But is it worth it? Absolutely!

    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.

    The main stream media outlets have shown unprecedented bias towards Trump since 2016 with no sign of slowing down. Quite the contrary, it intensifies daily with no end it seems.
    What if this unprecedented bias is not some harmless political rivalry or struggle for control? Seems that fact is getting clearer and clearer in the media. Seems like the majority of the world's richest men and their political pawns have embraced open-border global socialism and hate Trump for being the only significant world leader against it.

    If you pay attention closely to the leftist's narratives it appears that the globalist's-owned media's only real goal is to remove national sovereignty from the public's mindset. Don't be fooled friends, this a battle between one-world government and national sovereignty only. If you decide that you want to see through the rhetoric for the real motivation, it becomes obvious. Realize this now and you will see what is happening much more clearly. In order to win this battle, the left must remove Trump or more specifically, the national sovereignty mindset from the world completely. Quite frankly folks, if you think America will remain a constitutional republic with a shared balance of power after Trump than you have not been paying close attention at all.

    As it was 2000 years ago, could it be again at the end of the same age? Could God's supposed "people" at this time in history discern the face of the sky but still not discern the signs of the times?

    Liberalism/socialism/globalism are all synonymous with each other for the first time in history. What if this is the "lie" of 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2? READ IT Prayerfully. Has leftist ideology now come of age as one big LIE called "progressive-ism". Will the left soon label their deluded new "morality" as Christ's teachings? Certainly not the Christ of the Bible but rather their perverted version of a false "christ". Seems they are attempting that more and more so keep your eyes and ears open. This "lie" is evolving towards this daily.

    Does anyone rational believe that these globalist-owned pundits, corrupted by greed politicians and world leaders actually hate Trump personally? Do they actually believe that Russian meddling gave Trump the election? Of course not, they are merely the puppets of a much bigger picture. What if they have been brainwashed with riches by the principalities of the air who work through the "great men of the earth"? Our Lord calls them, "the rich men", "the mighty men" whom we refer to as globalist billionaires. These billionaires spend hundreds of millions globally to vilify any Bible based or conservative stand, thought or idea using their financial power to ensure every aspect of their lie is propagated throughout the industrialized world. They go to great lengths to hide behind the scenes but every now and then, they are mentioned vaguely. Names like Rothchild, Bezos, Soros and even the Club of Rome, etc. Currently there are over 2200 Billionnaire families on the planet and they own all of it, make no mistake. All banking and all main stream media. News journalism is a thing of the past. A pipe-dream that never truly existed from the start. News in these days however doesn't even pretend to be unbiased. Now it is only narrative being pushed by the owners of the outlets.

    After realizing the vast majority of American citizens were not fooled by the Mueller hoax, the globalists then ordered the left to switch their narratives against conservatives to white supremacy. This shift was not enough so undoubtedly more removal attempts will continue to come.

    The left's ideology, "progressive-ism" has been building steam worldwide for over a century but as separate and unrelated (until now) ideologies. Seems revealing that all 3 of these ideologies arose in popularity at the same time as a result of the industrial revolution of the early 1900s. Never before were they so interrelated as one ideology however.

    2 Thessalonians 2: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. If this doesn't describe the left then nothing does.

    Now, think about the term God uses in verse 10 above: with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish. If you live anywhere except under a rock these days, one can easily spot this deceivableness of unrighteousness in every single leftist big name or speaker every time they are in front of a mic or a camera.

    The democratic political party is the party of the political and moral "left". Its tenants and morality are dictated and controlled by globalist billionaires. The central element of their deception has been to accuse the political right by repetition and without specific evidence, of BEING EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE secretly and overtly. So overtly that they hide in plain sight of their brainwashed minions.

    First the Russian collusion hoax of which the globalist's media accused Trump of for 3 years without a shred of evidence turns out to be exactly what the left did and is still doing. This latest coup attempt of quid pro quo in dealing with foreign governments is exactly what the left's leadership has always done. The evidence of which is coming out more and more and may burst open soon enough (if AG Barr does not sell out to the deep state's globalist's handlers, that is).

    Now as mentioned above, they are accusing the right of what they have always been and definitely still are: racists and white supremacists bought and paid for, self-serving, corrupt public officials. The democratic party has always been the political party of slavery, of the confederacy, of the Ku Klux Klan, of Jim Crow, of Bull Connor. Instead of physically forcing "people of color" into slavery or to the back of the bus like they did back then; Satan has now upped their game against the weak-minded common people "of all colors".

    Seems nearly every leftist run local and state government throughout our country has been riddled with corruption and their own pocket-lining while the actual public they are sworn to serve suffer economically and socially. This is certainly also true at the federal level. Seems every member of the last administration entered office with modest personal wealth but left office gaining multiple millions, even billions in personal assets. Globalist and Chinese pay-offs they desperately want to hide. You see, public office to these types only means their own self-service. They are the ruling class over you and will keep you in slavery. They now use deception, lies, coercion and manipulation with the vast resources of the globalist-owning media. Instead of physical slavery, they now keep their slaves through ideological and emotional slavery. Bribing these deluded minions with the impossible promises of free everything, except free-thought and free-speech. Keeping them oppressed and fully dependent upon the scraps from the left's white, elitist's table (socialism). Satan is a liar and father of it.

    Seems every globalist's bought and paid for, leftist big name out there tell lies constantly that normal, average Americans know are lies. They delude the commoner leftists with fake "woke" social justice reform and climate change. Delusion is defined as an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.

    Not surprisingly but so obviously, they all say the same thing, the same script, scripting by globalist minions. Their plan which is working by the way, is to continue to bombard all media outlets and academia with this 3-fold LIE. Satan knows full well that in order to trick the weak-minded into believing a lie, that lie must be repeated without wavering regardless of facts, historical records, common sense or clear-cut evidence to the contrary.
    I know that it seems like they have but these leftist politicians have not gone insane. Globalist influence started during JFK's administration and he warned of it just prior to his assassination in 1963. The deep state has been entrenching in every corner of our government since. The term "Deep state" refers to those in government who do not work for the interests of the American people but rather for their globalists "owners", whether identifying themselves as Democrat or Republican, they have sold out. Since the election in 2016 it has become obvious who is part of the globalist deep state and who is not. By enlarge they identify as democrats but not all are. Many hide as self-described republicans. If a cabinet nominee makes it through the senate vetting process easily, you can be assured they are against the American people's interest and will work to subvert Trump's national sovereignty policies until they are discovered. Hence the non-stop turnover within the administration since his inauguration.
    Is it because Trump is some sent by God savior of the American dream? of course not. It is only because Trump has (so far) refused to sell out the American people to the globalist, one-world government agenda! The current state of politics in America is anything but normal or business as usual. It is divisive by design (divide and conquer), revolutionary (government overthrow or coup has been attempted and continues to be) and violent (violence is encouraged against dissension to the new world order or religion of progressive-ism).  ALL of which has been and is being orchestrated by globalist billionaires.
    The deluded younger generations of the industrialized world seem to buy into this lie so easily but no wonder, they have been indoctrinated through public education into every aspect and nuance of this LIE. Humanistic philosophy, sexual deviancy, transgenderism, dependency on government and the panic over climate change are the tenets of this new religion and our institutions of public education are the temples. This fabricated, anti-Bible religion of progressive ideology has already taken over the last two or three generations through the public education systems of the industrialized world. The faculties of which have increasingly been made up of the "priests" of this new morality (against all that is Bible Based) and have proselytized children and young adults into their "progressive religion" right under our noses.
    These latest generations are largely reprobate as God describes in Romans, Chap 1. The "Godless" new religion that public education has brainwashed into them has taken strong root and has replaced the God of the Bible completely in their minds. They have been raised by public education to reject the Bible and any Bible-based ideology as racist, homophobic, trans-phobic and xenophobic. Therefore evil and must be done away with. They don’t realize in their folly that they have given themselves over as worshipers of the beast already. A counterfeit morality and a counterfeit "god". Depraved lust, slothfulness, and self-entitlement are the results ensuring that the True God is not retained in their knowledge.......condemning them for eternity.
    Why are the conservative pundits missing the point of the left's delusion? Because they are dead in trespasses and sins and are incapable of discerning "Truth" themselves. They falsely apply reasoning to the leftists narratives and are left dumbfounded at the rationales behind their delusion. They seem to be waiting for a logical and reasonable argument from the left. The conservative pundits cannot comprehend the gravity of this delusion. They still live under the misconception that government is supposed to balance out ideas through the American people's election results. Those days are obviously gone in America and will never come back. It is the left's way or death very soon. Think this is an over-reaction? Keep reading friends.
    The leftists protect all their own because they believe the end justifies their means and that any dishonesty, resistance, obstruction, violence, crimes and even self-humiliation committed by them is completely justified as long as their “righteous”, leftist agenda remains fully agreed with and keeps getting promoted.
    Seems very likely that the climate change/progressive lie will get more and more press, priority and push here in America. It is not going away friends. The sleeping, normal people of the world cannot be bothered with the "lie". They are too busy to care and certainly too busy to do anything about it. This is how and why the LIE has succeeded to become more and more "normal" in the average mindset. We tolerated their fake "new morality" too long and now indifference and inaction by conservatives has allowed reprobate ideology to get a foothold of normalcy in society slowly over the last 100 years. As the end gets nearer the LIE gets pushed on the world more and more by a small minority of globalist billionaires. As verse 11 above clearly states the cause by which the Lord sends strong delusion is that they ALREADY refused the love of the Truth. What if the natural disasters our Lord said would increase as the ends of days get closer propels this strong delusion causing massive worldwide panic and embracing of anyone who may have the answer for the world's salvation. Keep reading......
    Now the TRUE fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:  For the first time in history, the following characteristics of human behavior are now mainstream and acceptable if done to advance the left's LIE. They are and will continue to lawlessly replace all Bible-based institutions and our Constitution with their progressive "religion".
    2 Timothy 3: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
    The Books of 2 Peter and Jude are God's foretelling of the world we live in today. It describes the globalist's progressive-ism and clearly shows us that we are now living in the very last days. Appropriately placed near the Book of Revelation. The left's politicians are blinded by mammon dangled by billionaires and cannot look past their own bellies "as natural brute beasts made to be taken and destroyed by the Lord at His coming". See 2 Peter 2:12 and Jude 1:10.
    I am not talking several decades friends. What if Trump’s coup, fraudulent defeat in 2020 or assassination is the catalyst to plunge America and the rest of the world into global socialism? He truly is the only hold out of significance. The United Nations (which has been bought and paid for by globalist's since its inception) has passed international laws against national sovereignty already. Any other hold outs are only because of Trump's stand so they will crumble as soon as he is out of the picture. The United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), World Health Organization all press for open borders globally and demonize any world leader who disagrees with them.
    These global elitists have been secretly influencing the whole world for decades to accept liberal political correctness, border-less nations, defenseless populations, gender-less identities, universal health care and wages? Every aspect of their LIE is in direct rebellion with God's Truth by which every person will be Judged.
    The goal of the left is a one-world government run by the elite ruling class (under the beast, perhaps?). Oh, the rank and file minions don't understand this. They only understand their brainwashing from media and academia including the false religious of "christianity" thanks to public education- indoctrination and the media.
    Remember when most Christian denominations use to warn against public schools and TV, even the internet when it became popular? Remember when they used to warn against the very idea of a one-world government as the sign of the beast's coming? Most if not all seem silent now. Well, here we are: Now, most of what identifies as "christian" (even the seemingly elect) seem ready for his mark (open border, socialism).

    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.
