I am not sure that using the word for an illegitamate male child at 2 min 43 sec was appropriate? Define reprobate? "You repent of your sin before you get saved" :popcorn: "If you didn't repent before you got saved you didn't get saved" Maybe we need to move this to the repentance thread, I'm out of time, I have to go hear Phil Kidd now, ... :hide:

Sounds like a hobby horse preacher. While most of what they say may be true, most of these preachers preach the same stuff over and over and do not preach all the counsel of God.

 I've never heard the term "hobby horse preacher", can you tell me what you mean by this?

Started to say they have one subject that is their "hobby horse" and ride it to death -- then decided to see if your age was showing in your profile and yep your age (or lack of it - youngster) was showing in your post. 

 

So, let me explain what a hobby horse is (or was).

 

Some of us were around long enough ago to have grabbed an old wore out broom as a kid and used it as our "horse" or are young enough to have seen broomsticks with plastic horse heads and reins in the store that our folks couldn't afford to buy for us. Known as a "hobby horse".

"On a hobbyhorse," means that the person has one subject which they keep pushing.  How we come by it, I don't know.

See Old Fashioned's post above (#7).  Riding the broom (and then the broomstick with a horse head) was riding a hobby horse.  And kids who had them rode them and rode them...hence the saying, because when someone gets on their hobby horse it's hard to get them off.

"I don't care if you don't like what I said or not......."

".......and I'm trying not to be ugly about this...."

"repent of your sins BEFORE you get saved" ????????

 

 

As to his language, I think it's uncalled for, but I've heard worse from an IFB pulpit many times. Phil Kidd was mentioned and I've heard him say some pretty rough things too. But my Wife was saved during the invitation right after one of Phil Kidd's messages so I can't knock him either.. My belief is that repentance takes place not before, but at the moment of salvation, and that without it there is no salvation. But all in all I would say this man may be a little "rough around the edges" and off on his repentance process, but other than this. I believe he is speaking the truth..

      Johann Sebastian Bach, 1685-1750, was a composer who used his talents for the glory of God in music.
      Bach said, "The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul."
      "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded" Lyrics included
      by Bach
       
       
      The classical music by Bach does glorify God and is able to refresh the soul.

      Hi, my name is Brian Smedley and I want to say without Christ I am nothing . Through the Lord Jesus Christ do I have righteousness, not my righteousness, but his. I am presented to God through Jesus blood that flowed at Calvary for my sins and all of mankind's. John 3:16. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth  on him would not perish, but have everlasting life.

      Hi guys! first post.. So im active on a board for fitness and in the non-sense board there is a Christian debate going on. I have posted two replies and im wondering if its worth it.

      In person you can talk to a person and see them, and you are not arguing vs who is better at googling answers etc.

      At the same time, just like hearing someing cussing and using Gods name, watching these threads just drive me mental at the ignorance about what "christians believe".


      What do you think?

      Boards like this between christians learning and sharpening theology I love... but the debate vs an atheist.. fruitful?
