    Catholic Who Embraced Jesus As Lord And Savior

    John Yurich... I thought this looked very familiar to me. Sadly, there is a movement in many Baptist churches toward ecumenicism. Way of Life is a great site to explore on the "Emerging Church". John, I also encourage you to look closely in a comparison of the Bible and what Catholicism's dogma would have you believe. I'm sure you're a fine young man and you deserve to have wisdom about your claim.

    Yes, the standard for all of us, who would strive to hit the target is Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14

    I had to attend a public school in the 70's, I understand that I'm ancient. I had a strict teacher who required I behave and perform in certain ways or I would have problems before and after I graduate. She taught me to listen, complete assignments, and regard others appropriately. Sadly, I ignored much of her requirements and ended up quitting school to join the U.S. Navy. She told me before I left that one day I would be back. I had scored very well on my Navy entrance exams and was permitted to choose aviation electronics for my career field. Again, sadly my performance in public school hindered my performance in Naval electronics school. I was able to pass my Naval training with a lot of extra study and effort after applying those behaviors and performance standards prescribed by that high school teacher. While in the Navy I attended an IFB church in Va. and was saved under that pastor's preaching. I went on to retire from the Navy. After retirement I completed a bachelor's degree program I had started on active duty. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from a liberal university. Until I used the standards to behave and perform the way my high school teacher taught me I had difficulty. I had to listen to hear faith + nothing to be saved, I learned to listen to Navy instructors to achieve, I learned to conduct myself in a certain manner to be accepted and have cooperation. The laws of my teacher were invaluable for me to be successful in all endeavors and most importantly in hearing the truth of God. I'm thankful for my schoolmaster. 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40
  4. 1 Peter 2:17-24 I was looking at defining 'endure' for my own growth and came to the above scripture. I understand the context as referring to government and work relationships. I wondered would it be too far a stretch to apply verse 19 to family and personal family relationships? I mean in the ordinary difficulties of family life and or family strife. The day by day interaction with my (our) own household members.

    1 Peter 2:17-24 emphasis vs. 19

    Thanks for the in depth on all of that. I thought it might be the case but I didn't want to stretch the meaning way out in left field. Some changes to how the site works. I'll have to catch up on.

    Thanksgiving Plans?

    We're staying around home. I'll take my wife to a restaurant for dinner. No children or grandchildren this Thanksgiving. Thankful... YES! Thankful this year... I have a wife to have Thanksgiving dinner with! I have children and grandchildren! I'll have a Thanksgiving Dinner! We won't have a dinner mess to clean! Most importantly...I have a Savior who loves me and gave His life for me on Calvary arose from the dead and now prepares a place for me to live with Him forever! In spite of my ugly sinful flesh AMEN! 1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. Hopefully you are aware of more recent disclosures of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) and priestly child sex abuse in Pennsylvania. This is another in the ever growing list of sexual abuses within Catholicism and their priesthood. You see, you and I, WE are Christianity as far as many in the secular world are concerned. The lost may not differentiate between Baptists, Protestants, and Roman Catholics. As far as secularists and Christ deniers are concerned we are all Christians. The media doesn't help, portraying the Pope as the leader and head of world Christianity. I may be way off base but I have some concern over how the lost may receive my testimony and witness for Christ as a result of these RCC atrocities. On the other hand, I may have greater opportunity to witness to Catholics who need Bible answers over their failing church traditions.

    You and I, Lost persons, Catholic Pedophilia

    Sad, keep looking for a door to witness more. Using the scripture, Amen! Sad indeed.
  9. John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another. 1 Corinthians 16:6 And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go. "That ye may bring me on my journey" "That ye may furnish me with the means of travelling. It appears that, in most cases, the different Churches paid his expenses to other Churches; where this was not done, then he labored at his business to acquire the means of travelling." Adam Clarke Commentary

    God Bless America...

    This July 4th I'm recovering from a failed condensate pump which allowed water to ruin several items in our basement. We have no basement drain! Thank God we have a nation where we're free to worship Him; and a national day to thank Him for living in a nation to celebrate the freedom He provided.

    Baptist Church Sign Heresies

    The sign out in front of our building only gives the times of services and that we are an Independent Baptist Church. Oh, and the pastor's name.

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    This is a point which must concern us all. Satan and his hoard of demons as well as his host of unwitting minions were never so hard at work. Working to destroy fundamental faith and allegiance to our Lord and His Word. I have allowed too much to interfere with my own diligence to tear into God's Word with hunger and with fervor.

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    Or San Francisco, Boston, or any other city where Satan has so confused people they don't know if they are men or women.

    This is why I am here, why are you?

    Genesis 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; Genesis 15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. Genesis 15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. Genesis 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. You're in error toold.

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    I believe we won't find scripture which states, God forbids women to wear "pants". However, as Paul would say, "But to the rest speak I, not the Lord:" Ladies, do you want your husband's attention drawn to what a woman wears? Why, do I ask, "because, your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour". Greater men of faith than I have fallen and I dare say greater than anyone in the local church. As much as my flesh would like to say that I'm above any earthly, worldly, or demonic temptation and attack, it just ain't so. I only ask that caution with God's wisdom is used that no woman "put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way."

    The truth to the lie.... Bruce Jenner

    Sin sick world, Jenner still needs... 1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. However, it appears as if... John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    Activity on Online Baptist

    I've been filling my time with a lot of reading. I want to stay away from TV, internet, and all other forms of electronics noise. I'm attempting to concentrate on Bible and Christian authors. I'm behind on a couple of book reviews I intend to post later. There is another situation I'll mention in another thread.

    Would never have known

    I just found a radio (internet station) called American Family Radio (AFR). If it were not for AFR I would not have known about the perversion occurring in education across the nation. I'm referring to the so called, 'National' day of silence, began by homosexuals "is a student-led national event". Here's a link LINK there are many others.

    Point Driven Quotes

    Speaking of ‘Spiritual Maturity’ demonstrated by Jesus our Lord "He counted nothing he had too valuable to give up to become less than he was and give us Heaven.” Jack R. Taylor Personal note: We still wonder: “What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?” Psalms 8:4 I could list some gospel hymns I just thought of but.

    Point Driven Quotes

    Here's one I ran across in the current book I'm reading... "If the devil cannot make you proud of your attainments in the flesh, he will make you proud that you are not proud of your attainments in the flesh." Jack R. Taylor
