    1Timothy115 reacted to Ukulelemike in The Rapture in the Bible   
    I doubt any of our theology on this subject are absolutely correct-the Bible says actually quite a bit, but things like timing, and time periods between events, are very vague. I hold to the post-trib/pre-wrath rapture position, and have quite a few reasons for it, but I'm not dogmatic about it, either, because the Bile doesn't really lay out the timing clearly, so I have never considered it a 'fundamental', timing-wise, nor anything to separate over, though I know some who do separate over the timing of the rapture. 
    By the way, I don't hold to it due to any Anderson teachings, as I have never heard his teaching on it.   I think the fact that it WILL occur is abundantly clear, and that it is yet future, but as for much more than that, all we can reasonably do is speculate, maybe strongly, but still, I give myself space to be wrong.

    1Timothy115 reacted to PastorMatt in Hate Crimes Against Asians?   
    Whenever you deal with humans you will have deal with all sins. With that being said, none of the churches I have been a part of have I seen any hatred toward Asians, but I'm sure that it is out there somewhere in some IFB and other churches. It's sad if it does exist.

    Every race, nationality and etnic-religious group has experienced hate at one time or another. Right now it's white people on the receiving end of most of it from the media and academia. You'll find that most hate towards minorities actually come from leftists despite how the try to portray it. I live out in the country and everyone gets along.
    As far as from IFBers I have never heard of hate towards Asians but I'm sure it occurs just like with any other group. 
    P.S. I love Dr. Gene Kim

    I use the 1769 Cambridge KJV and like you and your TCR I wouldn't have another until my eyesight requires one. I can not and will not support 'double inspiration. I do fully support God preserving HIS Word in my KJV.

    @jeff_student_of_Jesus Could you please expound on your following quote bellow from a status update reply from you?
    I guess I'm asking if the rapture is "made up"  from worldly people then please expound on the verses in the Bible that talks about the church meeting Christ in the Air?
    I'm not concerned about the Word Rapture, but rather the Rapture principle.

    1Timothy115 reacted to PastorMatt in Christophobia - An Anti-Christian sentiment   
    All throughout the news you hear things about people being homophobic and so forth. Of course the term homophobic seems to have changed definitions from the meaning "having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against gay people" to disagreeing with the gay lifestyle.
    Anyway, this topic is not about that, but the term Christophobic. Would that mean someone who is against Christians mean they are Christophobic? 
     
    It seems that now every group is protected except Christians.  I heard the term Christophobic the other day and it got me thinking. Anyone else hear this term before?

    Yes, they weren't there, because they didn't need to be there in the original language-it was added for clarification, because it didn't translate directly into English the way it read in the Greek. So yes, it was added, but the thought was there, it just didn't translate. Some thing. Like Spanish has certain word that are in the female sense, and some in the male sense, Hermano and hermana, both of which translate as friend, but one, we would write as male friend, the other as female friend, because English doesn't have all the words words to specify male and female that way; (those we had, like actress and actor, have been dispensed with, as people think them sexist.) Same idea.

    No, "the liberal belief system" would say that Genesis was made up of five different textual sources all compiled and edited together as one with some Babylonian mythology thrown in for good measure probably around the time of king Cyrus or the building of the 2nd Temple.

    No, the italicized words in I John 2:23 were not there. 
    Would Moses refers to himself in the third person? Because there's plenty of times he would have if he wrote the books himself.
    I don't see the problem with the Pentateuch being written by one of his scribes as Jeremiah had Baruch, Paul had his writers, the four gospels of Jesus Christ not being written by Jesus.
    Yes, but then why not write, "Therefore I wrote this song..." if he wrote Genesis.

    There are several places within the book of Deuteronomy itself that relate God directly telling Moses what to write, including the account of his death - that means it was written by him, during his lifetime - not hundreds of years later. That philosophy just creates doubt and uncertainty about the Word of God.

    I counted Brother Alan to be a faithful servant of our Lord and a valued online friend.  I thank the Lord for the past number of years wherein I was able to experience Brother Alan's friendship and spiritual edification through Online Baptist.  I am certainly praying for his wife and family, concerning comfort in their grief and help with their needs.  I will miss him here.

    1Timothy115 reacted to John Young in Alan has gone on to be with the Lord   
    This short but powerful message of Alan's sums up his life's mission. He lived it to the very end for the Glory of God. 
    Another classic sermon of his was about heaven and the New Jerusalem. He loved the topic and now he is living it. 
    These two messages from Alan will be a blessing to hear. Though he is gone we will meet him again!

    I counted Bro. Alan as a friend. We never met, but did exchange private messages. I always enjoyed his sermons and devotions. His departure seems sudden because he had a stroke.
    Still praying for his family. When something like this happens on the mission field, there are always complications.

    Thank you, @PastorMatt. Keeping the family in prayer.
    Even though I didn't always comment on his posts, I admired his obvious love for the Lord and his desire for people to learn the truths of scripture.

    I am posting this with permission from the family. One of our members @Alan has gone on to be with the Lord last week. Alan was a great contributor here, and was a blessing and encouragement to many on Online Baptist. Alan will truly be missed on this earth, but he is now with our creator. Please keep the family in your prayers during this time as there are details that need to be worked out. 
    Please feel free to comment below on how Alan was an encouragement and/or blessing to you.

    1Timothy115 reacted to Jim_Alaska in Changing Our Name   
    This distinction is critically important Bro. Matt. I have started a series of adult Sunday School lessons at our church that makes this distinction very clear. It is a series on church history in which the main theme is that it is not the name "Baptist" that is important, it is the doctrine.
    I have never heard this taught in the context of church history. Most try to teach that one can trace an unbroken line of churches or baptisms and trace church history. I don't believe it. But I do believe that we can know a true New testament church by their doctrine, which will be the same doctrine that was taught by Jesus and His Apostles.
    This is not said to lessen the name Baptist; for I believe that a true New Testament church will be found within the ranks of those who call themselves Baptists.
    2 Timothy 2:2 (KJV) And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
