    The devils can't do anything to you without God's permission. The devils can also not possess a saved person. Assuming you are saved, they can only oppress you, with God's permission. My only advice is to put on the whole armour of God and He will protect you through this attack.

    You must be very careful in your interpretations of Revelation chapters 2 and 3. Though I believe these chapters represent 7 different types of churches which are represented throughout church history, the idea that there are 7 different church ages has a lot of complications.

    Pastorj got a reaction from DaveW in Evolution Evangelism   
    Jesuslivesinus - As shared before, the individuals on this board reject evolution and hold to a Biblical basis of creation found in Genesis Chapters 1-2. God spoke everything into existence in 6 literal days. We are happy to engage you in a discussion from Scripture, but if you want to attack Independent Baptists, I would suggest finding another place to discuss evolution.

    This is the direction of most churches today. The church has become another way to entertain us rather than a place of worship. My daughter went to a "Baptist Church" and they had a light and smoke show during the "Praise" time. We are definitely in the Laodicean Church age

    Pastorj got a reaction from (Omega) in HOW OLD IS THE EARTH?   
    JesusLivesInUs
    When science disagrees with the Bible, the Bible is always right. It's amazing how the Bible ends up proving Science wrong. At one point, Science said the earth was flat. The Bible said it was round.
    There is significant Biblical and Scientific evidence of a young earth, Probably around 6-10 thousand years old, not billions or trillions.
    If you want to say evolution is true, do it from Scripture, not faulty science and I am happy to engage in a discussion.

    Pastorj reacted to No Nicolaitans in Memories   
    My dad no longer remembers who I am.
    This Thanksgiving, he didn't recognize my wife, our children, or me. To see this strong man, who had always put his family first...no longer know his family...is heart-breaking.
    I wasn't sure how to handle it. I could tell that he was uncomfortable with "these strangers". He was very cordial, but there was no recollection. I wanted to hug him and tell him, "It's me...your son, Dan." He has pictures on the wall of us, but there's no recollection. On a piece of paper, he has all of our names written down with our relationship to him...as though he knew he was having trouble remembering, so he wanted to make a note to himself as to who we are, but he's gone past that now.
    Please pray for my dad.

    The only sin that can't be forgiven is the rejection of God and you pass from this life. While you are still alive, you can still turn to God and receive Christ as your Saviour.

    When my family traveled working with small churches, I came across this a few times. The one that was amazing to me was in Florida. I went out with an individual and it was my turn to talk. I started up a nice conversation with this lady on her doorstep. She was very willing to talk. After presenting the Gospel, I asked her if she had ever heard that before. She told me that she had, but didn't believe it. After some more discussion, my partner asked her if he could pray with her. To my amazement, he led her in the sinners prayer. After he was done, I stopped him and told her that she was not saved, but she could be if she would pray something similar believing. I then took my partner back to the church. On the way back, he was livid that we were stopping soul-winning and that I told her she wasn't saved after he "Led her to Christ".
    It was not a fun conversation, but I spent a good hour explaining to him that a prayer doesn't save. After we were done, the pastor showed up and he had a conversation with the Pastor. He reinforced what I had told him and it finally clicked with him. He was zealous to lead people to the Lord, but at been taught wrong.

    I always found though I got very frustrated with the Ruckmanites that seemed to flock to this forum, Iron sharpeneth iron. As I debated those who held to differing positions it showed me where I needed to further study.
    Anyway, I was just curious. It's been a few years since I was active. I hope to be more active.

    The issue is "Who is doing the winning".
    The easy-believism crowd believes they are going out and winning souls. Numbers of people who pray the sinners prayer are all that matter.
    The life-style Evangelism crowd believes that God wins them and they just have to live right and let their light shine.
    Though the Life style crowd is right in that God wins them, it is our job to Lead them to Christ. Christ will win them.

    Pastorj got a reaction from DaveW in Starting a church   
    It's been a while,  but Paul was beckoned in a dream to go to Macedonia.  Also I believe her name was Lydia and her husband sought the Apostle to come start a church.
    Most new testament churches were started in this fashion as the Roman persecution pushed Christians all over the world 
    The apostles were sent by a local church to go out, but believers were already organized in many places. I believe that the key is for the organization of the church to be led by a pastor,  but that doesn't mean that a body of believers can't meet while looking for God's man

    Meeting in a home is completely different than a home church. 
    Those that hold to home churches typically meet as a family unit with the father being the elder/pastor. Very much Old Testament

    Pastorj got a reaction from John81 in Secondary Inspiration   
    I am 100% confident in the KJV, but I reject double inspiration as a heretical teaching. My confidence is based on the Word of God clearly teaching the doctrine of preservation. The KJV is one of a number of translations that I could say are God's Inspired Word. It is the only English translation, but there are a number of other language translations that are equally God's Inspired word because they were preserved in their language.
