  1. Only if they are itemizing. I always took the "standard deduction" as my items were always less than the standard. However, all Americans, not just Christians, should deduct everything they legally can, so that they then can have as much of their own money as possible to disperse as they feel led. No if someone wants to give more of their hard earned money to the government, well that is their prerogative, though, in my opinion, a foolish one.
  2. I agree. That is one of the few reasons why we went third party in 2016 as a protest but I have to say he far exceeded my expectations and has even improved in his character and somewhat moderated his speech over the last term with the godly influences he wisely surrounded himself with. We'll be voting for him this year as he has kept his campaign promises and there really is no better option.
  3. I think a lot of the discrepancy has to do with duel fulfillment of Prophesy and delayed fulfillment. Much of what Ezekiel sees in the first part of the book was a "vision of God" where he saw the events happening to the temple of his time but because of some reform that occurred, the final judgement that would have been brought on by the abomination of desolation in Ezekiel 9 was delayed till the 70th week as we see, in the vision of God, in Ezekiel 9 the abomination of desolation is occurring but in Daniel and Matthew 24:15 we see it has been delayed until mid 70th week. I believe vision tha
  4. I don't disagree with what you said but it really has nothing to do with what I said. What I mean is many young people disillusion by those professing Christians more interested in making friends with and acting like the world or disillusioned by bland or passionless professors of Christ, are drawn to the passion and commitment to Christ, as dis played by Anderson and many in the NIFB, that they come for the charisma and sincerity first and then adopt the good with the bad, whither that be a bible version or doctrine.
  5. The Four Stage Return of Christ. Basic Revelation Outline Chronology of Revelation is progressive and accumulative in nature, interjected at times with explanatory passages. (Notice the phrases are always “hereafter”, “after this” and “then” not “another view of this event is”. Also notice sections of explanation pause the chronology “What meanith” or “come and see” etc. Rearranging of the Book is often done to get man’s theology to fit but God’s order is correct.) Chapters:1-4 For His Body 5-7 For His House 8-14 For His Nation 15-22 For His Kingdom Chapters 1-4 For His Bo
  6. Christian Charity given willingly and directly to noble causes is not the same as compulsory giving to the government who then chooses for you where and how money is spent. Jesus asks you to do it directly and willingly. The politician seeks forced payment, forces you to give them your money while promising to only give some of it to the poor and even then to things which are appalling and poorly managed, then many squander what you give them to the point there is never enough for the original cause, so then demands more money which they then take by force from you. NOT. THE. SAME.

  8. The content of the sermon was really good and put together well. Aside from delivery and presentation, which will improve with practice, its important to remember that a sermon is not just to convey content but also to move the hearer to action of some sort. So with each point in a sermon, the effort needs to be made in getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to do that". For example, after your message, your pastor got up and gave them a call to action and listed several ways they could respond to what they heard. If your sermon already has t

  10. From their churche's Facebook page: Leawood Baptist Church 15 hours ago It is with very heavy hearts that we share that Marilane Carter has passed away. Her vehicle and body were found Tuesday in the West Memphis area. Law enforcement says that foul play is not suspected. Please keep Pastor Adam and the children in your prayers. Many of you have already been asking if there is anything else you can do to help the family at this time. The best thing that we can do right now is pray for them. They don't have any immediate physical ne
  11. Has scripture meaning changed since 1611 or since the time it was written for that matter? No. While a good grasp of root language is helpful in some instances, alone, it cannot convey the contextual meaning of authors. For that, the material itself must be studied. A deep study of a word out of context and without cross referencing of an author's whole work, is a foolish errand. In fact, I am quite confidant when I say that the person who only knows rudimentary English and has a good ability to cross-reference scripture, using only a King James bible, is more apt to teach than the g
  12. I'm pretty sure he is referring to Greek and Hebrew studies that are often done without regard to the immediate context and biblical understandings. Such as those who go to the Greek understanding of "hell" "hades" "tarturus" etc while not considering the biblical understanding. Many study the language etymology above all biblical consideration to the contrary of the general, cultural, alternate meanings of a language that actually have little to do with the textual usage. Word meanings do have their place but a generic study of a word alone can only take the reader so far in understanding the
  13. THE IMPORTANCE OF CROSS REFERENCES - James L. Melton Far too often I see Christians privately interpreting the Scriptures by saying things like "Well, I think it means this" or "Brother Jones said it means that." In their minds, they honestly believe that their opinion is just as sound as anyone else's, even when they use no Scripture to support their position. "I'm entitled to my opinion, and I believe it this way" is often the only argument they have. This childish way of handling the Scriptures has produced a generation of brain-dead Christians who know nothing worth knowing and b
  14. Not anymore. In his new edition and videos he repented of that false teaching and stated that he was in error. He teaches faith alone for salvation now in all dispensations.
  15. Gene Kim Teaches hyper-dispensational salvation and is into Jewish fables. Has some good stuff but tends to do click-bait teaching. He boarders on the heretical. I don't recommend him as a bible teacher. Someone like Brother James Knox or Bro. Douglas Stauffer would be much better for general teaching and online preaching.

  16. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst
  17. "LEAWOOD, Kan. (BP) — Pastor’s wife Marilane Carter has been missing since Aug. 1 when she departed her Overland Park, Kan., home, reportedly to seek psychiatric care in Birmingham, Ala. The Overland Park Police Department said in a press release that Carter left her home around 8:15 p.m. Aug. 1 and was last heard from Aug. 2 when she was near Memphis, Tenn., about 450 miles into her trip. Leawood Baptist Church Lead Pastor Adam Carter, Marilane’s husband, has joined a search party covering a 3-mile radius around the place her cell phone was last used. Associate pastor Jason Fra
  18. ???! How can faith in ancestors and land save one's soul? A lot of Asians have that type of faith. What was the deal with Issac then? Was that not of faith in what was to come? Abraham knew what he was doing was a figure of his faith. Hebrews 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. John 8:56 Your father A
  19. Another one of Paul's allegories, uses a variant of this method when contrasting Adam and Christ. The below image also from Bro. Melton illustrates it this way:
  20. An other example of allegory, similar to the allegorical method used with Esther above, is the comparison between The "Cross of Christ" and the "Cross" of Israel's camp in the wilderness. In this, two literal things are compared and contrasted, to draw out the Spiritual principles common to them both. The two literal objects are not the same physical thing but they, both together, can present a better view of the spiritual. Brother James Melton has a Facebook post that illustrates it in the following way: James L. Melton November 30, 2019 · THE
  21. A change of mind (assent) and a change of heart (from pride and rejection to humility and submission).
  22. So from these passages we can see biblical allegory (the spiritual principles under-girding the text) is available and discernible to the average and common believer if they set their mind to know them through the leading of the Holy Ghost.
  23. I welcome your insight and if you feel that it is a subject you want to discuss and improve upon then I have no problem with you continuing but not to contentions or offences. As I said before I like learning about these things not fighting about them. I realize we don't see eye to eye on the subject but I think we can move on in spite of that. My comments on the topic will be general because that is what I'd like to discuss and not necessarily the person who presented them.
  24. Amen. Most sources tend to do well on teaching the psalms separately and individually in their historical context and general applications for that particular psalm but only allude to the possible reasons for them being in one collected work. As I study the psalms collectively, their arrangement makes more sense and less arbitrary. I do have it as one of my projects to develop a "whole psalms view" and use that view for developing a Christian handbook from the psalms. As I am able I'll share any solid development in the project here. If anyone knows of good material dealing with psal
