  1. While "Ask Jesus into your heart" can be considered poor terminology, I do not think it is bad theology. I believe its is based on this passage Galatians 4:6-7 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Giving it this sense that the sinner becomes a Child of God by God sending forth the Spirit into our hearts, it is not wrong, when paired with a clear gospel message, to ask God, in prayer, to give us His Spirit and make us His child.
  2. Same thing here. Its a good problem to have I guess!
  3. God is long suffering and forgiving towards sinners, giving them many opportunities to repent and do right. However, God lets us know that there are certain immoral actions that cannot be allowed to continue openly in a just society. In Leviticus 18 God explains the baseline moral requirements for the nation to be allowed to remain in His Holy Land. In this sermon we show the moral sins God particularly hates. Including Abortion, Infanticide, Incest, Molestation, homosexual acts, Bestiality, and etc. The passage explains that if they are not put away from the people then God will visit the iniquity of these sins on us all and the land itself will "vomit" them and us out of it. We also deal with the Sodomite Agenda to deceive society in these matters. Attempting to make these things acceptable in our land. Preached: April 15, 2018 Sunday Morning. By Pastor John Young, at Edgecliff Baptist Church, Spokane Valley, WA.
  4. I'm still interested in doing one but I doubt it will be any time soon. I currently still have several other projects I'm working on for church that I have to finish before I can get to It. I will also be working on a larger project on "The Word". Basically how God transmits His Word by the Spirit to Spirit filled Men who speak and write it down, and how God preserves it for every generation, and how the devil tries to corrupt the Word, how many modern bible versions ignore how God's proper transmission methods, etc. I may integrate the study on the various terms into that study. The particular study referenced would be how the Bible uses those particular terms rather then how men use them generically.
  5. I'm not sure about your medical situation but I know how taxing they can be. Just remember, even with the complicated situations, there are people who care and you are not alone. There are people willing to help and there are programs and alternative ways to get the medical help you need. Even in this forum, what little advice we can give online, we can try to help you work through your situation and options if you need it. God bless!

    You can try reinstalling it as the download or install may have not completed properly the first time. Just be sure to follow all instructions and not to use your computer or programs for other things as not to interrupt the download and install. If it does not work the second time then you may have other issues that only a computer savvy friend can help with directly.
  7. Scientific facts and the scriptures are allies and go together beautifully. Unproven scientific theories which disregard the proven scriptures can be disregarded for consideration as they are allies of nothing. Facts, whither bible or scientific, should never be subject to theories and whims of man.

    Chrome or FireFox are the best. I like chrome because it is easy to use and reliable in every thing I do online. FireFox is the best reliable browser if you are concerned with privacy. (google like to spy on you) Chrome link: https://www.google.com/chrome/ FireFox link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
  9. Not to mention the use of "AND" to start every sentence and clause. Indicating that it is one contentious event with no gaps in time.
  10. What Bible College did you attend? Heartland Baptist Bible College Did you graduate? What was your Major? Yes. Missions at first but switched to Pastoral. What years did you attend? 2002-2008 What did you like best about the college? They were strong on Biblical doctrines, KJV, Baptist Faith, and many of the teachers were long time (current and retired) piratical ministers in their field of teaching. What did you least like about the college? They operate too much like a secular college, over emphasized the one year bible certificate, they started hiring their best graduates just after they graduated and used non-baptist martial for some of the classes (every book except the KJV bible had a disclaimer from the college in it). Would you recommend that school now? Yes. Its still useful for finding a good wife and networking. In your opinion, did the school properly train you for the ministry? In some ways they did but in some practical ways they did not. I personally feel that I would have been better served to learn a trade while training under a local pastor rather than going to a college. As I consider the college format in general, in light of the biblical methods, I do not think its the best way to train men for the ministry.
  11. I agree. The NKJV is a far second to the KJV but the notes are pretty much just a running smear campaign to the reader on why the KJV is flawed and they should stop reading their NKJ version and just go out and buy a "superior" version like the ESV. One is hard pressed to actually find a beneficial note in it. There are a few custom "KJV for the 21st century" that are online that attempt to update grammar, spelling, and the occasional word, but I have not found the need to investigate them. I think its better just to stick with the 1769 update of our 1611 KJV and then get a KJV friendly dictionary for the occasional word that you may not understand. Its much more beneficial that we update our personal vocabulary than always be searching for the "latest and greatest" bible.
  12. We're all Independent Churches and Christians. Start using the UCB to describe yourself and encourage your church to uses it. (No one can or is going to stop you) Then see if other churches and people will be "moved" to use the title as well! "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." and all that..... Jul. O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father, and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet. 40 Rom. [Aside.] Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this? Jul. ’Tis but thy name that is my enemy; Thou art thyself though, not a Montague. What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot, Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part 45 Belonging to a man. O! be some other name: What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet; So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d, Retain that dear perfection which he owes 50 Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name; And for that name, which is no part of thee, Take all myself. Rom. I take thee at thy word. Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptiz’d; 55 Henceforth I never will be Romeo. Jul. What man art thou, that, thus be-screen’d in night, So stumblest on my counsel? Rom. By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am: 60 My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself, Because it is an enemy to thee: Had I it written, I would tear the word. Jul. My ears have not yet drunk a hundred words Of that tongue’s uttering, yet I know the sound: 65 Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague? Rom. Neither, fair maid, if either thee dislike. Jul. How cam’st thou hither, tell me, and wherefore?
  13. My advice would be to: Realize that you are not door knocking to "get results" but that you are going in order to give the person an opportunity to hear the Gospel in obedience to the Great Commission. Plant and water whatever ground you find and in due time God will give the increase and build His church. Door knocking is hard and takes resolve because it is the most direct means of informing and calling each individual to make a decision, which most people want to put off and not think about for as long as possible, but the time of "winking" is over and all need to come to grips with the call. That is why we go. Acts 17:30-31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
  14. This may be true. However, It has not yet faced the refiners fire of Pastor Scott Markle.......Perhaps there may be some dross that will need to be scraped away....For example, the printing errors perhaps of #6.... Isaiah 48:6-8 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. 7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them. 8 Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb. Isaiah 48:9-11 For my name’s sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. 10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. 11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
  15. Yep. I have experienced this point on the forum and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Yet it makes for a long process when one is eagerly (and genuinely) awaiting the concluding answer......... fun times, No hurry....
  16. By reading and attempting to understand all the other books. Genesis through Revelation. Each book builds onto the next. Prophesy is not for the novice but is basically the pinnacle that sits on top of a person's culmination of scripture knowledge. You cannot understand an end of a thing until you first learn about it's beginning and substance. Daniel happens after the kingdom of the nation of Israel is taken away and Revelation happens after God's church is taken away. Too often many try to interpret prophesy without first learning anything about God's order, of Israel, of His church, or of the world in general. Prophesy books or bible lessens from Godly men you trust can help get a broad overview of events or suggested meanings but in order to fully grasp prophesy yourself you need to be patient and open to learning the foundational aspects of scripture first. Daniel 12:8-10 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
  17. The problem with the mindset of the today's "modern scholar" is they are so concerned with things "about the text" that it seems they all but over look the very text they are learning about. The perfected text of the KJV speaks for itself to be an accurate representation of God's word, just as imperfect and corrupted texts of any language speak for themselves, irrespective of their translators. It is indeed a true gift from God of his preserved words for the English speaking people, irrespective of the feelings or any ineptness of its translators. Isaiah 40:6-8 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: 7 the grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
  18. Biblically Easter is associated with and follows the feast of unleavened bread, regardless of extra biblical calculations. Our feast is symbolized in the Lord's Supper and Easter proper is on the first Sunday after the Passover sacrifice. 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.
  19. Self evident 101.... the words and the context. They necessitated the use of Easter because Christians were looking towards the resurrection and Herod was attempting to disrupt the Easter observance of the church in favor of the Jews observance of Passover. Acts 12:1-4 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)[Passover week Ezekiel 45:21] 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter [Christian observance of the resurrection which (has been, was then, and is now, part of the "Pasch week", and) culminated the weeks commemorations for the Christian but not for the lost Jew] to bring him forth to the people. John 19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Webster's Dictionary 1828 - Online Edition American Dictionary OF THE English Language Easter E'ASTER, noun A festival of the christian church observed in commemoration of our Savior's resurrection. It answers to the pascha or passover of the Hebrews, and most nations still give it this name, pascha, pask, paque. Passover P'ASSOVER, noun [pass and over.] A feast of the Jews, instituted to commemorate the providential escape of the Hebrews, in Egypt, when God smiting the first-born of the Egyptians, passed over the houses of the Israelites, which were marked with the blood of the paschal lamb. 1. The sacrifice offered at the feast of the passover Pasch PASCH, noun [See Paschal.] The passover; the feast of Easter. Paschal PAS'CHAL, adjective [Latin pascha.] Pertaining to the passover, or to Easter. Acts 12:24 But the word of God grew and multiplied. Mark 16:1-2 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. East EAST, noun [Latin oriens, this word may belong to the root of hoise, hoist.] 1. The point in the heavens, where the sun is seen to rise at the equinox, or when it is in the equinoctial, or the corresponding point on the earth; one of the four cardinal points. The east and the west are the points where the equator intersects the horizon. But to persons under the equinoctial line, that line constitutes east and west. 2. The eastern parts of the earth; the regions or countries which lie east of Europe, or other country. In this indefinite sense, the word is applied to Asia Minor, Syria, Chaldea, Persia, India, China, etc. We speak of the riches of the east the diamonds and pearls of the east the kings of the east The gorgeous east with richest hand, Pours on her kings barbaric, pearl and gold. EAST, adjective Towards the rising sun; or towards the point where the sun rises, when in the equinoctial; as the east gate; the east border; the east side. The east wind is a wind that blows from the east
  20. The fact that they chose to use the English word "Easter" instead of "Passover" for the Greek word "Pascha" makes this self evident. Easter is an entirely Christian church word for the Resurrection Morning Of Christ (it was used for nothing else by the Anglican church during the time of the translators). If the translators thought that it had nothing to do with the Resurrection of Christ and only the O.T. Passover then they would have used the English word "Passover" like they did in every other instance of the word "Pascha" in the bible.
  21. Easter is reference to the Christian aspects of the Passover week. Just as Passover is specifically one day in the "Pesach week" but can be used in reference to the whole event, so to Easter is a specific day In the "Pesach week". Passover specifically is when the Lamb is slain but Easter is specifically when Jesus Christ rose again (Easter in general meaning "Dawning"). As seen in the context, Herod was performing an anti-Resurection Easter to please the Jews. James being the first Apostle martyred on or near Passover meal, a picture of Jesus dying, and Peter was supposed to be the next martyr. Jesus being unable to be held by the grave ten years before, Herod wanted to prove that Peter could be held beyond Easter (the Christian aspects of the Passover week culminating in the Easter Resurrection of Christ). The translators use Easter instead of Passover because they wanted to emphasize the Christian aspects that Herod wanted to disprove for the Jews rather then simply in reference to the the original O.T. Passover. (Also, While Herod was an Edomite by decent, he was a Jew by religion not Pagan. John the Baptist did not condemn him for worshiping pagan idols but rather for breaking the Law of Moses which Herod claimed to be keeping and following as the Jew's "rightful" king).
  22. Here is a very good article about the word Easter in Acts 12:4: http://www.kjvtoday.com/home/easter-or-passover-in-acts-124
  23. I wasn't allowed a calculator in any of my math classes. Just saying. I love word search on my bible app but I admit it has made me a bit slow and stupid when it comes to remembering were precisely in the bible a passage is. Particularly, when at the door and pulpit when God gives me a passage, I can't just stop and word search for the Chapter and verse. It would be too cumbersome and not proper etiquette to be messing with a device. I need to be able to go right to it by memory. So I like to use a regular bible with book tabs and also add color paper tabs for important verse topics. Not to mention problems with battery power, lighting, weather and dropping a device. Also few like to let go of a device when dealing with people of the baser sort when a paper bible is not a problem to share. Over all a paper bible is just more practical for sharing the gospel and following along in church.
  24. Any update on what is going on with the church directory? I think it was a nice feature of the site and was wandering if it will be back soon.
  25. I liked the book by John R. Rice called "The Coming Kingdom of Christ". Its a simple bible study book that Brother Rice wrote about the Millennial kingdom and how the promise of eternal Inheritance of Land to Israel will be fulfilled at His return. Not overly "earth shattering" but it was helpful to me in getting a proper perspective on how all the promises of the bible will be fulfilled not just temporarily or partially to some but in fullness to all who trust in Christ. With a lot if confusion to to how things play out with the rapture and tribulation it was a good book for a foundation to those events. Here is an online version: http://www.oneway.com/library/the-coming-kingdom-of-christ/
