  1. LindaR added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    Is a "cheerful non-giver" viewed the same as a "non-cheerful giver"?  I really don't understand the point of your OP question.  Are those who do not give, for whatever reason (that reason is between that person and God), supposed to feel guilty about it? 
    All Biblical giving comes from a cheerful heart.  A person who simply gives "out of duty, obligation, or coercion" is not a cheerful giver.  If one is simply giving "out of duty, obligation, or coercion"....or "giving to receive something in return", then that person is better off not giving anything at all.  All that type of non-cheerful giving is "wood, hay and stubble" at the judgment seat of will be burned up.
    Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
    Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
    1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
    1 Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
    1 Timothy 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
    In response to your last have been a member of this forum long enough to know the answer to that question.

    Bro. Matt,
    The  date on the "New Content" page is incorrect.  It's one day earlier than it actually is.  The date today is Saturday, March 28th, 2015.  The date on the "New Content" page says today's date is March 27th.  It's been one day off for the last two weeks.

    Thanks Bro. Matt!  I was beginning to wonder if I had something wrong with my new Windows 8 system.

    Since I can't edit my previous post, I will add that I am using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox (36.0.1)

    My notifications are not loading at all.  How do I eliminate the number in the red circle above the "bell" notification thingy?  If I can't see my notifications, there is no point for me to continually see the number of notifications.
  8. LindaR added a post in a topic: Easter   

    ​Unleavened bread FOLLOWED Passover, according to Leviticus 23:5-6:

    Leviticus 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover.
    Leviticus 23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.
    The Easter of Acts 12:4 occurred after the Passover. We know this because Acts 12:3 says it was "the days of unleavened bread."  The feast of unleavened bread followed the Passover (Numbers 28:16-25), but this Easter was after the feast of unleavened bread. It refers to a pagan holiday, probably the celebration of Tammuz, the sun god (Jack Moorman, Easter or Passover?).   (Way of Life Encyclopedia - Easter) 
    Acts 12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
    You might not agree entirely with this article from Jewish Awareness Ministries, but it brings to light some interesting points:

    PASSOVER, EASTER, AND THE EARLY CHURCH (Israel's Messenger, March 19, 2013)

    This ministry uses the King James Bible, but one of the responses to a comment I posted was interesting, to say the least.

    Question for Bro. Matt:
    Whatever happened to the debate request by SFIC and Scott Markle on tithing?  Wasn't that request made about 6 months to a year ago?

    The past is passed, so let's get past it! Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
