    Great I look forward to seeing your new website. I enjoy looking at church websites to see what it on them. 
    I can see where the name of church can be a detriment to someone on deputation from your church. Most of the missionaries that come through here I already know their home church.

    My local church is changing it's name from Decatur Chapel (Happy may remember us by that) to Decatur Baptist. We're still adhereing to the IFB tenets, instead of moving away from them.  Probably wouldn't set well with the liberal leaning crowd for us to be going the other way.

    We had some of our own go on deputation in the past and they had to go the extra mile explaining we're not a non-denominational local church. One said she thought it might have cost her some support but we can't know those things for sure. We had changed our sign out front to reflect we were and Independent Baptist some years back but retained the Decatur Chapel on it. It will help folks in the the area know where we stand, to some degree. We're having a new website built too, when it's finished I'll share with you all.

    The doctrine is more important than the name, so I'm glad that you are changing the name to reflect your position.

    I had considered changing our name from Bible Baptist Church to either Foundation Baptist Church or Pillar and Ground Baptist Church-primarily because of the association that Bible Baptist has come to have with Ruckman. But haven't done so. Perhaps when we are able to purchase our own building again, (or if), then I might do it.

    This is wonderful, sounds like a move in the right direction in a day when some are dropping the name Baptist. Shame on any who do!

    I got to see Dr. Hovind back in '94 I believe it was at my old church. I didn't get to hear him every night because of work but I did catch two lectures. He was good.
    You are right about him now getting off into post-millennialism and some other peculiar things.

    I think I may have seen one of them, though mostly I have watched Kent Hovind's 7-part seminar on creation, very good. He has gone now into some things I don't know that I agree with, but his creation seminar is still very good.

    Evolution depends on time. Loads and loads of it that never can be observed keeping to theory safe and secure in the halls of academia.

    Has anyone watched these? I thought it was interesting how the downed trees in Spirit Lake below Mt. St. Helens are sinking by the roots first and making an underwater forest which will not long hence become petrified...like the petrified forrest in Arizona. It doesn't take millions of years.

    1Timothy115 got a reaction from John Young in Easter   
    I dislike the possible origin of this day and the continuing commercialism as much as anyone else. For many here Easter is a name, its just a name. 
    We need to be concerned with eternity, not the name of a day. A lot of lost people, including the 2-day a year religionists, will attend an Easter service. Hopefully they will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ on that morning, they will probably not attend a second service that day. It is doubtful they will hear the truth any other time or place either. So call it what they will, we need to seize another opportunity to share and preach the Gospel. The goal is not how we feel about the name of a day, it's who comes to receive Jesus as Savior.
    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. [John 6:37]

    I just ask, "So, where did THEY come from? And did they plant the universe in place, as well? Did they supply the open space to put the universe into? You can't have aliens without having the same questions of origins.

    I agree. There's a video in YouTube with Ben Stein confronting Dawkins about this. Even if we were genetically engineered from apes where did the "engineers" come from? It takes more faith to believe what they believe than to believe the God of the Bible created us.

    Yes, I believe that was from the movie "Expelled", very good. He really boxed Dawkins into admitting what he didn't want to admit: that there HAD to be an intelligent source for life. Later, Dawkins claimed he was 'tricked' into saying it, even though he had the right to have them remove that footage of the show. He is a whiner.
    Another issue with the Urey-Miller experiment, was that about 97% of what the experiment produced was a toxic tar sludge that had to be immediately removed, or it would have killed the few amino acids produced. So either the slidge, or oxidation, both had to be taken into account and carefully removed by an 'intelligent source' for the whole experiment to not be a failure. Which is was, of course, a spectacular failure.

    Many secular scientists are abandoning evolution for intelligent design because of the many failures of the theory.  Unfortunately, they have aliens designing us. I think even atheist Richard Dawkins has moved towards this position, at least, he suggests it's possible.
    Anything but believe in an almighty creator God.

    Does anyone else enjoy this besides me? Miller-Urey 1953 
    "But the Miller-Urey experiment, important as it was, had a flaw. Urey had based his primitive-Earth atmosphere on astronomical data just then coming in, the first spectra from the giant planets in our Solar System: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These characteristic bands of color showed that the giants were swathed in atmospheres rich in methane and ammonia, thought to be left over from the planets' formation.
    The catch is that oxygen, although an absolute necessity for multicellular, advanced life, is poison to pre-biotic synthesis. Do a Miller-Urey experiment in an oxygen-rich atmosphere, Kasting said, and "you don't form things like amino acids. There are too many oxygen atoms in there." So, over the years, "enthusiasm for the warm little pond theory has waned." ~ Reflections From a Warm Little Pond, By David Pacchioli

    1Timothy115 reacted to Ukulelemike in Who wrote this?   
    The issue with what was "added" in italics, isn't that it wasn't there, it was that the Greek or Hebrew from which it was translated had it, but they didn't translate directly into English, so it was added to show the meaning of the phrase in the Greek and Hebrew. But they placed it into italics to maintain honesty that it had to be added to clear the meaning.
    I have seen an interesting theory on genesis, that it was actually initially written down by the people it was written about, for instance, Adam wrote part, Seth wrote part, Abraham wrote part, etc, and they compiled the writings at the behest of God, and they were kept until Moses, who compiled them together into one book, both from those writings, as well as, perhaps, the Lord filling in any other information he wanted recorded. Of course, it is just a theory.
