  1. Sadly, I've just caught up to Jim's passing on to glory. Dave W has summed up anything I could possibly add. I'll see Jim again one day because of Jesus and for His sake.
  2. I am persuaded by the scriptures you mention and the scripture I have mentioned support that the errors of the 'Chosen' don't give rise to a non-Biblical Christ. Yes, they have embellished the story of Christ's life but I've seen no attack on Christ's deity. I've not heard this program denies the birth-death-resurrection Gospel of Jesus Christ. Neither have I heard that there is rejection that Jesus the Christ "is come in the flesh." The episodes I watched taught a Christ of miracles only very God could perform. I would further say, I've not heard of revival as a result. If the 'Chosen' does further the Gospel, like Paul, "I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice." I don't see my reasoning as reprehensible toward my Savior or His Word.
  3. I understand what you're saying, and I don't disagree with that perspective. I even have a scripture that speaks to your experience and reasoning, you're probably as aware of as I am. Philippians 1:18 "What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice."
  4. Possibly a little hyperbole... It was meant for "or those you take issue with". Calm down. You just throw around that word "negative" unsparingly.
  5. Tony, you seem to have labels (negative) for everyone, and most thoughts people present; or those you take issue with. I don't suppose you think warning of the impending doom of the world is very positive either but, the fact remains Jesus taught us about its demise. Don't take things too personally or I might believe I've touched a nerve. Thank you for your comment.
  6. Jim, some use technology more than they should, and they stop using and begin being used by the technology. When they neglect the people and circumstances God has placed in their lives a reassessment is in order. I use technology but refuse to make it my alter for worship. What is common among the worldly is not uncommon among Christians, we are after all susceptible to the same temptations (1 Corinthians 10:13). Tony, the abuse in use of technology is a problem. The medical professions have recognized a growing addiction for cell phone use and an increase in children's addiction as a result. Anything we put before worship of God is a detriment. My caveat above was, "How many Christians are following the world's example of continual 'smart phone', computer laptop/desktop, or TV screen use?" Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
  7. Facebook would ask me, "What's on your mind, David?" Sadly, I have some reservations about putting it out on Facebook. Or at least not yet! I hope I'm not speaking of anyone here but, please, no replies in the form of excuses. How many Christians are following the world's example of continual 'smart phone', computer laptop/desktop, or TV screen use? This is where the world is worshipping their god. Their god of progress technology consumes them, and they are worshipping at it's alter. Their god controls nearly every aspect of their lives. They burn their dinner, they have accidents, they ignore the people they love, they risk almost anything to get to their god. Praise my God, that he has kept me from the need to affix my every move, thought or action before the throne of tv, computer, or phone.
  8. 10 US Banks Participating in Test of Interoperable Digital Money Platform Are we heading into a global monetary system? Is this a prelude to a speedier one world government? It seems like Bible based prophecy is occurring at an exponential rate in the past two years.
  9. Just searched the internet... Ohio Cigarette and Tobacco Taxes for 2023 (salestaxhandbook.com) Ohio Cigarette and Tobacco Excise Taxes Total Ohio Cigarette Taxes Average Cost Per Pack Ranking (Highest to Lowest) $1.60 / pack $6.10 / pack 23rd / 51
  10. New COVID-19 variant, XBB.1.5 even better than Omicron! Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel, pictured, said that the XBB subvariants sweeping parts of the nation are "highly contagious," with spike proteins acting like "suction cups." (Fox News) Suction cups! What will they think up next? Might not be coming anytime soon!
  11. Was he making a statement about attire may need to be considered in public? Is he still living?
  12. The spirit of worship, the manifest presence of Jesus Christ, and the transformation of the ordinary into awe, wonder, and respect of Almighty God. Psalms 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. It is not the images around us, stop thinking of self; it is the image we bear, start thinking of Christ. Matthew 28:20b "and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
  13. Well, at least you're not encouraging flag burning to oppose our nation's flag in our churches, I'll give you that.
  14. We've had them in IFB and IB churches to the sides and behind the pulpit. I have no problem with showing respect for the U.S. Flag and the Baptist Flag on the platform area. For that matter, as a retired Navy man I like it. Our new pastor had them both removed. I honor the Lord first and God's under shepherd of the local church second. For me the flag represents the authority God permitted within our Declaration and U.S. Constitution. I don't come into the sanctuary and give the flag a salute, either one of them. I don't worship nor give undo honor to our nation's flag. Honor to the flag is such a little thing and has never been a part of worship toward God in any church I've attended or been a member of.
