  1. Time to check in with you and find out how Randy's recovery is going. I'm continuing to pray daily and think of you both often.
  2. I hope folks take the opportunity to encourage Randy. Maybe we can do this for someone else's loved one in the future. My wife is also Factor IV.
  3. LuAnne, (HappyChristian) gave me permission to post an address to send Randy get well wishes and to let him know people everywhere are praying for his speedy recovery. Please send the cards to his church, some of you may already have this address but here it is again: Pastor Randy DePriest c/o Lighthouse Baptist Church 108 Airport Road Port Townsend, WA 98368 I'm sure it will encourage Randy and the Church at Port Townsend.
  4. Great News! Still praying for Randy's continuing recovery.
  5. I'm continuing to pray for Randy and you.
  6. I would be interested to know your definition of reincarnated?
  7. I'm continuing to pray for you both and of course the doctors to have wisdom as they administer treatment..
  8. Welcome aboard! I've lived in the south before... Tenn., Fla., Tex., Va., SC., and visited in La. (Pollack and Alexandria many times).
  9. I'll be praying for Randy and you too.
  10. Welcome! I look forward to hearing from you. Particularly I hope to hear your thoughts on music-worship-and current trends.
  11. Ten years, two months, and seven days ago I joined Online Baptist (OB). Many were here before me, many have left the site, and many have since joined. OB has always been a great place to fellowship with other like minded believers and continues to be so today. This is a refreshing place to come and just read the remarks of others or comment as the Lord leads. All in all each of you have helped me to grow in my walk with the Lord. I look forward to continuing visits here until the Lord says otherwise. Thanks Matt for a great environment for IFB and IB alike.
  12. No, it's not common at all among Independent Baptists. I refer you to John 17 and particularly John 17:20-21 to see the extent of the Church of Jesus Christ.
  13. I've known people who wear the Mason's ring and have the stickers or license plate holders on their cars or trucks. We have one in our church, I don't know if he is saved or not, God knows. I don't understand how he can hear the Gospel message so clearly, so often, and still associate with the Masons. I've heard some off color remarks and cursing from him. I've also heard him describe how he accompanied a previous preacher on Thursday visitation. If he went with me on a visit I wouldn't let him speak because its well known you never know what will come out of his mouth. I don't know of any fruit of the Spirit displayed by him. I've never asked him how frequently he associates with them, I'll have to ask him.
  14. Joshua 24:2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods. Joshua 24:3 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac. Joshua 24:14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. I have always read over this without stopping to think or study about this reference. I always glossed over and thought it meant the flood of Noah’s time. Actually, it means river and in each of the cases above it means the Euphrates River flowing in the land of Ur of the Chaldees. In Joshua 24:2 recall the reference to Terah, he was not living on the other side of the world-wide flood of Noah’s time. Leaving out the “begats” working backward Abram-Terah-Nahor-Serug- Reu- Peleg-Eber-Salah-Arphaxad-Shem-Noah those from the other side of the world-wide flood stopped with Noah, his wife, their sons and son’s wives.

    The triple nickle! Welcome aboard.
  16. Yep, I've reacted the same way toward people who made this same error. Please forgive me for making the same mistake I've pointed out to others in the past. I will have a GREAT study of Revelation chapter 6. I've been interrupted from continuing that study by other studies in Matthews 7.
  17. Start small. Narrow the reason for fasting, keep the length of fast short, keep up your daily devotions and pray without ceasing during your fast.
  18. What I like is, so far, we're not chasing the compromise of contemporary music and worship service.
  19. here is the site I use. Then I go to the individual churches to look for SOF and if they have traditional worship.
  20. I had not thought to look at Genesis first thanks. I do look at the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a reference toward a commentary's reliability. Until I found the difference of Barnes on preterist and amillennialism, I thought he was great although brief in many answers.
  21. Had never heard of it but, doing an online search I see that it's out there and has adherents. Have you ever heard a Calvinist explain the need for grace among men? I never have heard their argument.
  22. Possibly and the Holy Spirit through God's word has a lot of work to do on me until the Lord comes.
  23. I'm doing a self dive into Revelation 6 and the first four seals. I decided to compare commentary from a favorite website "Studylight". So, I began with Clarkes and followed with Albert Barnes. It was toward the end of Barnes' commentary on the first seal I understood him to be preterist and amillennialistic. I won't toss out everything he comments on but I will watch him cautiously in the future.
  24. 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.
