  1. Great topic...no time now...off to Morning Service. But I hope to look into it later in detail.

  3. I'm thankful "grace" is one of God's attributes and that without it I wouldn't even have faith. The fact that I can administer grace to others is evidence enough for me it emanates from God. Knowing the low estate of myself, I would not give grace except for the grace of God. When did saving grace appear is a rabbit hole. The O.T. saints looked forward to the day of salvation by grace through faith whereas we've been given the grace to see grace giving faith in our rearview mirror. Thank you Lord Jesus!
  4. I know there is saving grace (Ephesians 2:8) and continuing in grace (Acts 13:43) ,growing in grace (2 Peter 3:18), and sustaining grace (2 Thessalonians 3:3). Do you mean that they hold to further 'filling' of the Holy Spirit?
  5. Thanks, never had any experience with it.
  6. I encourage you not to waste your time promoting the video. 2 Corinthians 6:15.
  7. Not surprised. Qur'an (16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
  8. Bill, what is your opinion of the video's message?
  9. It has to be a Thompson's? If so, I can't help. However, I encourage you to browse the following site for Bibles and Baptist books the business is called 'Local Church Bible Publishers'. I know they're in Xichigan but, they provided me with an excellent Bible.
  10. I never delved into a study or even a conversation about the Holiness Denominations or Churches. I thought they were all Pentecostal but, a question by a new member made me take a second look. They have a doctrine I can't agree with, the removal of the sin nature which causes a person to commit sin. That is not what I understand from Paul's discourse in Romans 7. It's not what I've experienced as a saved by grace through faith Christian either. Everything I read in the N.T. points me to believe sanctification is ongoing while we remain in the flesh. Everything else about them seems to be
  11. The Christian Home by Clarence Sexton. Get the Book and Student Handbook (for both of you), you may also like the teachers guide it's useful too but not necessary. https://faithforthefamily.com/product/the-christian-home-book/ https://faithforthefamily.com/product/the-christian-home-study-guide/
  12. "I don't have much experience at all being a Christian grown man." At 66 I'm still growing, welcome aboard. I worked in IT also during my military career and after I got out...been 12 years since I last worked IT projects.
  13. What does your Bible tell you with regard to this?
  14. SureWord, Welcome aboard!
  15. We can't allow a person's description of their giving to become a division between brothers. It has to end, eternity is a long time and our Lord won't allow disputes in heaven. So, it is best, I believe to "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory;" Philippians 2:1-5... Amen?
  16. Yes, as per the KJV as Jim, Mike, and gracelife have attested... the one taught by Jesus Christ... 1 Cor. 15:3-4 and there are witnesses 1 Cor. 15:5-8! Paul tells us he is about to declare it... 1 Cor. 15:1 and that it is the same truth which they received for their salvation.
  17. Not defined yet? Here are some guides for doctrine... "DOCTRINE, n. [L., to teach.] 1. In a general sense, whatever is taught. Hence, a principle or position in any science; whatever is laid down as true by an instructor or master. The doctrines of the gospel are the principles or truths taught by Christ and his apostles. The doctrines of Plato are the principles which he taught. Hence a doctrine may be true or false; it may be a mere tenet or opinion. 2. The act of teaching. He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in his doctrine. Mark 4. 3. Learning; knowledge. W
  18. O.K. I understand you aren't attempting to fight, me either. I tithe because of my heart not because of a commandment. I do it cheerfully to the Lord as a means of supporting the building I worship in, the staff, and the ministries of our local congregation. As I told E. Morales it's a starting point for me. My local church has many other needs which the Lord has blessed me with funds to support. It's my choice. So, give or tithe or whatever you want to call it but only because you believe God is pleased and you desire to grow in this grace also. 1. Who was to tithe? Me 2. What w
  19. Use some restraint, you don't know my Pastor's heart, you don't know mine either. Don't tithe if it troubles you...it doesn't trouble me...it's only a starting point for me.
  20. Without reservation...God didn't stop giving us air to breath, so...tithe!
  21. I appreciate your concern, but I'm still using it and will continue to as long as it lasts. I trust God preserved what I need to know in the one I have.

  23. Mike,

    RE: This is why I am here, why are you?

    Also, the land in Egypt wasn't land God gave them it was land Joseph through Pharaoh gave them. God gave them Canaan.

      Exactly-it was a temporary place they could be and grow while God dealt with the people of Canaan.
