    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.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer reacted to NDfree in OKAY, THIS IS A NEW ONE ON ME   
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer reacted to DaveW in How does one fast?   
    Could I suggest you to you, that rather than worrying about fasting and such like, you go right back to basics and  read through some passages like:
    Rom 3:23
    (23)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Think about what that verse is actually saying, and ask if it applies to you as well.
    For the ones that the first verse there applies to, they need to look at verses like:
    Rom 6:23
    (23)  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    I would like you to note that as the verse is talking about opposites, the "death" spoken of is the same as the "Life" spoken of in one respect - it is eternal.
    Where does that leave the one who the first verse applies to?
    Is there a solution to that problem?
    Joh 3:16-18
    (16)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    (17)  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    (18)  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
     
    So if God sent His son to offer eternal life to sinners through their belief in Him, what does that look like? How does a sinner "believe" properly? What does it take?
    Rom 10:9-13
    (9)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    (10)  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    (11)  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
    (12)  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
    (13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
     
    Consider these passages, and maybe read through the book of John - but consider these passages, what they are saying and does any of that apply to you, and should you pay attention to what it is saying?
    Can I let you in on a little secret? These passages absolutely apply to me.
     
    This is far more important that any discussion you might have on fasting - but if you really want those answers - the simple explanation is to abstain from something so that you may concentrate on worshipping the Lord. It is often food, but doesn't have to be.
    But the other verses I mentioned are by far the most important thing to study (and there are more to consider as well, but that is a basic starting point).

    Baptist_Bible_Believer reacted to heartstrings in He Hath Chosen Us   
    "Correlating the two concepts" of  "God choosing us before the foundation of the world" with "our responsibility to trust Him" is a non-issue. God's choosing us for salvation is not even what Ephesians 1:4 is about: the point of God's choice is  "......that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”. Ephesians 1:4 actually can be explained more with Matthew 5:43-48 and 1 John chapter 4. Because love is God's very nature and it is God Himself who predetermined that we be as He is; that is, we are to walk in love, to love not only our loved ones, but our neighbor and even our enemies. God knows who will be saved and who will not, but that doesn't stop Him from loving those enemies and from drawing them to Himself anyway because Matthew 5:43-48 says so. I find no problem "correlating two concepts" because no such two concepts exist.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer reacted to DaveW in Why questions:   
    Eph 4:26
    (26)  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
     
    It is possible to be angry without sinning, but I doubt it is possible for me personally...……….
    At least every time I have been angry, if I am honest I can find sin in my anger.
    But if anyone could be angry and sin not it would be God.
    And if you look at the situation of the flood:
    Gen 6:5-6
    (5)  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    (6)  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
     
    God had every right to be angry because " the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
    Now we get into deeper theology when we are talking God repenting as mentioned in this passage. If God was the Calvinist God who absolutely determined that men would follow his will in a predeterministic way, then you would have a place to hold your argument.
    However, if God had determined that men would be able to act according to their own will, then we have room for God to "repent". He was sorry that he made man, because man chose to sin - He therefore chose Noah and his sons, and their wives,  who found grace in the eyes of the Lord, to "restart things" (if you will allow that terminology). It was not God's direct will that man become wicked and evil continually - that was man's choice.
    When man chose that way, God was sorry for it. God did not change, God's overall plan did not change, God's will did not change, but when man chose to sin, it made God sorry.
    He was always God who wanted man to choose to love Him, and He still is. Just as a father is sorry when his child chooses to do wrong, so also God is sorry for it.

    Baptist_Bible_Believer got a reaction from Totoosart in Why questions:   
    1) Repentance speaks of a change of mind. It isn't that God changed His mind as though He had made a mistake, but that man's actions caused Him to change His plan for man--which was to be good and blessing to a curse because they rejected Him. The same can be said toward you and I who are 'condemned already' according to John 3:18, but when we receive Christ His plan changes from eternal separation from Him to eternal salvation through His Son.

    2) It would help if you give the address of your concern, but the one I am thinking of was when God told Moses He was going to destroy the stiff-necked children of Israel after they built their golden calf. In actuality, God knew how that would turn out as Moses interceded for the people and won their reprieve. It was more designed to strengthen Moses' faith--as the result shows..

    3) The bow in the sky was a reminder to us of God's promise to never destroy the world in the same way again. God remembers not in the sense that He forgets, but that it ever speaks of the covenant between Him and Noah. As for my part, I am glad that He remembers the Blood that His Son shed for me.

    "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth" (Genesis 9:13-17 KJV).
