    Baptist_Bible_Believer got a reaction from Alan in Biblical response to KJV attacks   
    I find it interesting that people are willing to agree that Satan has counterfeited every doctrinal truth of the faith, yet they become completely unresponsive when it comes to the Scriptures. I do not consider the New World Translation of the JW's a counterfeit, because it doesn't even pretend to represent Christianity in general. The problem with counterfeits is that they are close to the real thing. In the case of the modern versions, its "change a word here", "drop a phrase there," and essentially makes man the final authority over God's Word.

    God teaches a little at a time, but He is faithful and patient. Often He wants you to apply a truth in your life before He gives you the next nugget.

    "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little" (Isaiah 28:9-10 KJV).

    The fastest way to the knowledge of God comes from one source .  . .

    "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15 KJV).

    and do not neglect the man of God that God has placed you under his ministry for a specific purpose . . .

    "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive" (Ephesians 4:11-14 KJV).

    Well, I was a bit younger when I made that site . . . now I'm old enough where homegoing isn't going to be so much to go. When the Lord calls, unless He makes other arrangements the site will no doubt disappear. I've been supporting it myself. I ran out of room on my site so I posted a few books on a different site that has since gone under.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer got a reaction from Miss Daisy in Why do some Baptist pastors talk about other churches instead of concentrating on the Holy Bible?   
    While no preacher, in my opinion, should go to seed with exposing bad eggs, as there is an immeasurable storehouse of good worth teaching in the Word, he still has a God-given duty to "mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV). There is plenty of error in the feel-good, social club churches that needs to be warned about. The Joel Osteen's of the world need to be exposed for the charlatans that they are.
    At the same time, the preacher also should  "mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample" (Philippians 3:17 KJV). Talk about other good churches and the great work they are doing under the leadership of brother so-and-so. Talk about the good ministries of missionaries serving on foreign soil. Remind the folks of their prayer needs and brag on their victories.
    God is looking for a balance and it should always be remembered that, "A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight" (Proverbs 11:1 KJV). Preachers are enjoined to preach the "whole counsel of God," and not just a few hobby horses.

    Can you prove your doctrinal teachings go back to the first century? At any rate, why be concerned what anyone thinks of your ministry if you are doing it according to the instruction book that Paul gave the churches.

    After condemning those that teach another gospel, he writes: "For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ" (Galatians 1:10 KJV).

    Baptist_Bible_Believer reacted to Alan in Pre-Trib or Post-Trib?   
    Tej,
    Good question.
    In my studies of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the New Testament, long ago, I came to the conclusion that the coming of the Lord Jesus for the saints in the church will occur before the 7-Year Tribulation starts in Revelation 6:1
    Since this last December, at our church I have been teaching a verse-by-verse study of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Below is a chart that I made for that study. The chart is a "work in progress." And, I have already told the congregation that there will be an individual chart made for the five subjects covered in the chart.
    So, I am sure that there will be some changes (hopefully not major), in the weeks ahead.

     
     
    I do hope that the above chart on 1 & 2 Thessalonians will help answer your question.
    If there is something not understood on the chart, or if anyone has a question, or you see a mistake, please ask or discuss.
    Alan
    Note on February 11, 2019.
    I have  done a detailed study on, "The Day of the Lord," and the book of Isaiah, and the fulfillment  of Isaiah's prophecies in the book of Revelation, for my current study at our church. Due to the complexity of the,  "Day of Christ," and "The Day of the Lord," I am in the process of revising the  chart on 1 Thessalonians 5:2, "Day of the Lord," & 2 Thessalonians 2:2, "The Day of Christ" to make it more clearer and more precise. Once I am finished with the chart(s) I will attach the revised chart on this study and more appropriate passages from Isaiah.

    "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again" (Philippians 1:21-26 KJV).

    Wow just wow! Just when I think I have heard it all something like this comes along. I think the following Scripture is in order:

    There is an online pastor, Jim Wilhelmson, who claims to be a combo of Calvinist & Armenian.  He is very controversial in other ways.  He believes in a hollow earth which is the current residency of the 10 lost tribes of Israel.  He believes in both satanic ritual abuse & alien abuductions (with abuse or unintended trauma).
    Some of his ideas I dont mind.  But others - if he's right then it does not change salvation by grace & grace alone.  But it certainly changes biblical history as we know it from the canons.  He considers the apocgrypha & other extra biblical books as informative unless it directly contradicts (his version) of the biblical account.  That leaves some very wide latitude. 
    He is however good at pointing out certain contradictions in the generally accepted (both protestant & catholic) accounts.  While I dont accept that Cain was any but Adam's son, he correctly questions whom Cain married & for whom Cain's cities were built, IMO.  In other words, Genesis certainly left out a lot of pertinent details there.  I think its possible the  6th day "made them males and females" of Gen. 1:27  *might* be a separate event from creation of Adam & the Eve/rib event. 
    Dont attack.  Im just reserving it as a possibility. 
    But I disregard most of his more unverifiable statements that come from various books of Enoch, etc.

    Absolutely agree with you about the wisdom of using a word processor. I have had extremely bad moments when I lost a post that I worked hard on. It might be somewhere in the Ethernet but I sure can't find it. So I always have MS-Word or Notepad open now.

    I find acceptance of Ms Word document formatting very useful. This is especially so when writing a long post in MS Word to be pasted into a post. As most folks know, many times you can write directly into a post on a forum only to lose it when it is submitted.
    I always recommended that people write out their long posts, like sermons and devotions in their word processor and then paste it into their post on a forum. It saves a lot of work and frustration.
    Thank you for considering this BroMatt.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer got a reaction from Jim_Alaska in Commentators - many are common taters   
    I start with Genesis. If the Garden of Eden is presented as the mythological story of Adam and Eve, I pass. Then I look at Isaiah 7:14 and if the virgin birth is discounted as simply the story of a young woman of marrying age, I pass. I don't believe that they were all hopeless heretics, but I do pass on anything from the German school of rationalism. Actually, the older I get the more I am inclined just to read and believe my King James Bible.

    I touched on this in my daily devotional, Profiting From Proverbs, today where it says:

    "I find it utterly amazing that most of the “higher critics” of the Bible are themselves unredeemed men that denied many of the essential doctrines of the Bible. How is it possible that men, devoid of the Holy Spirit, should assume the responsibility to correct and manipulate the Bible to fit into their theological system—when the primary requirement for even understanding John 3:16 is that very same Spirit Whom they know not of?"

    Granted, men like Barnes knew the Lord--but they were sure shaky when it comes to dispensationalism and premillennialism.
