  1. Spiritually speaking physical replacement body parts can't change your Soul or spirit into a hybrid of you and the animal's spirit. A body part can only physically change the body. Mark 7:15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
  2. Yes (that is if English is still being used): Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) After the Christian witness of the Word is removed by the Spirit then all that will be left is the written witness of the Word of God.
  3. Discussion on the rights and wrongs and errors of the secular Psychology in this area could merit its own very long and detailed discussion but ultimately is unnecessary for the practical applications of Christians dealing with depression, in my opinion.
  4. While I agree to a 1/3 point. it also should be noted "Depression" and "anxiety" and "blues" are not biblically defined words and are not limited to Spiritual issues but they are clinical words (well "blues" is colloquial) being observed from the physical side. Meaning they are not equal opposites of only spiritual peace or equal to merely being spiritually troubled or mentally worried. While a strong Spirit or a disciplined mind or a healthy body can cover up or compensate for those lacking in one or two of the three for a time, its not healthy to continue in that state, without eventually addressing the root cause.
  5. As we are a three part being made up of Body, Soul, and Spirit, we (the whole person) can be affected by issues originating from any one or more of these. The key to curing or managing any issue is to first figure out in which part or parts the issue is coming from, as each has its own manor of operation that have to be dealt with. For example the body can cause depression by being broken or inured in some way (Part not working, aging, bad diet, chemical imbalance, drug use, physical exhaustion, lack of rest, etc.), the Soul can cause it by poor self esteem, bad education, and relationships, mental exhaustion, etc., and the Spirit can cause it by being dead in sin, cut off from God, communing with evil spirits or attempting to contact the spirit world, as a believer not following the leading of the Holy Spirit, Prayer warriors fighting Spiritual battles, weary in the fight, etc. Being a frontline minister in particular or taking on more than you are equipped to handle in general is not easy and, while sin can play a part, its often simple exhaustion and not understanding that they need to take proper rest and care of all three aspects of themselves. As they fight and try to do the will of God, the areas that are not maintained properly eventually break down, causing issues such as "depression, anxiety, and the blues".
  6. Most rage on this forum is self perceived by those uncomfortable with their ideas being challenged. "Rage" means "violent anger" and to my knowledge, while many have had fundamental and heated disagreements, no one here has been moved to the point of rage against someone, particularly to the point it could not be controlled. The bigger issue is not rage but false assumptions about others. As with any forum you get what you put into it. If you want peace and calm then that is what you should be. If you want reason and respect then that is what you should give. If you want friends then you should be friendly. Galatians 5:14-16 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
  7. We eat food which includes pigs and our body converts these things at the cellular level into our body. Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
  8. Yeah, but you first have to wait for the multiple triple blind muti-bilion dollar studies to show what we already know because, you know, science.
  9. Des that mean the Roman Catholic church is Ana-Baptist now?
  10. Coronavirus Can Spread to Heart, Brain Days After Infection and can survive for months in organs, according to a new study by the National Institutes of Health. https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20211228/coronavirus-can-spread-heart-brain?ecd=soc_fb_221229_cons_news_covidbrainheart&linkId=100000099357264&fbclid=IwAR01Te4Xm-P_uEFvjmAloMdhroPFVubnJVxsOGw-jW-40tRYFCuLRYeYolQ
  11. Passover was to be eaten by the whole nation at the same time but with one lamb per household. Each household was to have its own lamb with the exception of very small homes where they could join with their neighbour. They were to eat it in hast and without leaven, with the blood applied to the door post for that household. (Exodus 12) The lord's supper is modeled after that with the exception that Christ is the lamb of our supper. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. How can we purge out the old leaven if we are having the memorial with strangers not subject to our household? 1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
  12. I'm Looking forward to this new health benefit! New Pfizer Punch Card Lets You Get Free Sub Sandwich Every 10th Booster https://babylonbee.com/news/new-pfizer-punch-card-lets-you-get-10th-booster-free?fbclid=IwAR0iCoSfk6lQ95DKV5S73FiUff1iVC2InM9bp5DHyA4sz12mkc3q-8ypjHs
  13. While I don't disagree with this, I do make a distinction between their purposes. While "Spirit of Christ" and "Holy Spirit" and "Holy Ghost" is the same Spirit, they reference different operations and different relationships with the believer. The "Spirit of Christ" is given to all men from birth as a witness and to all who believe that witness He will give the "Holy Ghost". The "Holy Ghost" references His union and work within the Believer. "Spirit" and "Holy Spirit" references His work in general among all. For example in the NT when He spoke by David he is referred to as the "Holy Ghost" (Mark 12;36 and Acts 1:16) but when he is sealing believers he is referred to as the "Holy Spirit" (Eph 1:13-14 and 4:30). In the example verses below we can see the separate operations at work. My comments are bracketed and in Red: John 7:37-39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink [promise of present possession of Christ in them]. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall [future promise] flow rivers of living water. 39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) John1:4-34 In him [Christ] was life; and the life was the light of men [his light is in all men]. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. 19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? 20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. 24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 27 he it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. [The Spirit of Christ gives power to men so that they can believe and all those who believe are given the Holy Ghost.] 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
  14. The key is understanding what they were being converted to in Acts 2. Notice these were devout men. Already O.T. believers. If they had died before Christ's sacrifice or hearing the message of Peter they would have gone to be with Abraham As they looked for the Christ. (Luke 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.) The devout of Acts 2 converted to the N.T. faith and entered the N.T church (the body of Christ) as Christ of their faith had been reveled to them. The O.T believer gathered to Abraham and the N.T Believer Gathered to Christ. "Being pricked to the heart, after hearing a very convicting sermon from the Spirit filled Apostle Peter about Jesus of Nazareth being their Lord and Christ, the devout Jews of every nation ask the Jerusalem Church what they had to do to receive Jesus as their Christ. Peter tells them that they must "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." In this sermon we show how that this was not merely for salvation but for conversion of Old Testament Saints to the better New Testament faith. This sermon and call by Peter was primarily for the devout believers of God who sins were already covered by the Old Testament and had faith in a coming redeemer Christ. In this sermon we also deal with the differences between Old and New Testament believers. In that the OT believer's sin was covered but not cleansed so after death they had to wait, in faith, un-tormented, in hell, until they could be redeemed by Christ cleansing their sin by the cross and then personally going to hell to free them and take them to Heaven. And how they were covered by God's Spirit, but not indwelt by, the Holy Ghost. These OT Saints at Pentecost, having faith in the coming Redeemer already, needed to repent by acknowledging Jesus of Nazareth as that Redeemer and be baptized to receive the gifts that come with the New Testament indwelling of the Holy Ghost. We also note that every Old Testament believer converted to the New Testament faith, by divine power, for the fulfillment of their salvation."
  15. As always context is key. The false theory of prior peoples has to take the verse out of proper context to make their doctrine. They claim replenish is referring to the people and then attempt to say this means Adam is and his descendance are replacing people that were killed off. They claim The directive is for mankind but the context shows "Be fruitful, and multiply," is about the people but "Replenish is not about the people but about what the people are to do with the earth. "replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Means that mankind is given authority by God over the earth to "Dress and Keep it" as also stated in Genesis 2:15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Genesis 1:28 and Genesis 2:15 are companion texts teaching the same directive. "Replenish" with "Dress" refer to the same directive to put things back to how God made it and "Subdue" with "Keep" means we are to suppress things from over growing and keep it how God made it.
  16. Baptist should not be afraid of any verse merely because of what the false doctrines of some try to teach about it. Baptist doctrine is bible doctrine in context for a reason, and should not be forsaken for hyper-dispensational theory, which attempts to divide out salvation by faith alone from any passage it does not understand. The passage does not say salvation was hid. Your hyper-dispensational doctrine is reading that into the passage. The passage (Luke 18:31-34) actually says the things "concerning the son of man" was hidden. Meaning the manor of death by the cross and specifically how He was to pay for our salvation but Saving faith was not hidden (as clearly shown in John 12). The way of salvation for mankind has always been clear to the OT believer and is the same for the NT believer. Believe on Christ and you will be saved by HIM. Scripture is clear on that point. John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John 11:24-27 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. Romans 3:22a even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:... 2 Corinthians 4:13-14 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written (Psalm 116:10), I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 14 knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Hebrews 11:24-26 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; 25 choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
  17. I get more junk in my email than on facebook. The key to both is to know how to use the blocking and spam tools. I have very little extra junk on my feed because I know how to customize it.
  18. As a Pastor on Facebook with several groups, geared both to the lost and saved, I think more pastors and Christians in general should get involved in intentional ministry and evangelism there. Now if they are just there to chew the fat and complain and read gossip, or they are easily provoked or get high blood pressure, then no they should not be there or any social media platform.
  19. He's not wrong but rather the time period has been drawn out. We are currently waiting on the Jewish nation to turn to Christ nationally by fulfilling the Lord's prophecy about them in Matthew 23. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
  20. Public posts are a matter of public record as well. I haven't seen it here much but in the past many people in certain forums would intentionally goad people into saying certain things then deleting key posts to make the person seem to say something they actually weren't.
  21. "Nearly two years after the world first became aware of the existence of a novel coronavirus spreading in Wuhan, China, the origins of COVID-19 remain shrouded in mystery. For more than 18 months, the scientific and political establishment insisted that the virus had a natural origin, ridiculing anyone who dared contradict this view. Part-thriller, part-exposé, “What Really Happened in Wuhan” is a ground-breaking investigation by journalist Sharri Markson into the origins of COVID-19 that delves into never-before-seen primary documents exposing China’s concealment of the virus, fresh interviews with whistleblower doctors in Wuhan, and crucial eyewitness accounts that dismantle official explanations for the initial outbreak of the virus. Please join Hudson Institute for this important conversation."
