    CNN is reporting that Kathmandu, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 earthquake early this morning.  Be in prayer for the survivors.

    David Cloud and his wife Linda are in Kathmandu.  No word on his website as to whether they are OK or not.

    Barnes was just as judgmental as many others.  The only one who can know why or why not one gives or doesn't give is God.  Man looks at the appearance, but God looks at the heart.
     
    as I said, man might not be giving to an organization doing business as a church for many valid reasons.

    The Greek for "purposeth" means "to choose for oneself"
     
    paul said every man, as he so chooses to give, let him give.
     
      Oh, the word "necessity" also shows that the giver was to decide for himself.  Necessity is translated from the Greek "anagke". It is speaking of "
    necessity, imposed either by the circumstances, or by law of duty regarding to one's advantage, custom, argument
    2.  Calamity, distress, straits"

    Funny, Paul is the one who said to give as you choose.  Just one verse above it, he told the that the measure of their giving would determine their reward.  But he left the amount he clearly left to their choosing, not another's demands.
  6. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    ​The text shows she gave because of the Word of the Lord.  In other words, she believed she would be given the oil and the meal just as the man of God said she would.  He giving was in faith that God would do what He said He would through the Prophet.  There is no indication that she thought it would be her last meal she was feeding Elijah from.

    Yes, she believed it to be her last meal prior to God speaking through Elijah.  But once she heard the Word, she acted in faith.

    Pretty cut and dried from what i see.

    2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

    The word "purposeth" in the above verse is translated from the Greek "proaireomai".  It means "to choose for oneself"    Paul was not telling people to give over and above.  He was not dictating a specified amount or percentage that one must give.  He said they were to choose for themselves their giving. 

    Yes, he did tell them they were to abound in grace.  But he left the amount up to them.  No demand for sacrifice.
  8. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    Give as you choose is not sound doctrine???  It is Biblical doctrine.  That's just as sound as Salvation by grace through faith.
  9. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    Already answered that.  But to recap...
     
    1.  Give, not as dictated by man, but as you choose.  2 Cor. 9:7
     
    2.  Don't give to those who already have money if it means your giving will put you in financial stress.  2 Cor. 8:12

    I encourage you to read the passage again, with the request for provender for the Prophet came a promise for provision... BEFORE she made the cake for Elijah.  She received a Word of the Lord that if she acted upon the request, she would never want for oil or meal for as long as the draught was upon the land.
     
    she acted AFTER being assured it would not be her last meal.
     
     
    1 Kings 17:13 (KJV) 13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go [and] do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring [it] unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
    1 Kings 17:14 (KJV) 14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day [that] the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
    1 Kings 17:15 (KJV) 15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat [many] days.
    1 Kings 17:16 (KJV) 16 [And] the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
  11. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: "archaic" Word Useage   

    James 2:3 (KJV)
    And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
     
    pretty sure James was not speaking of a transvestite here.  The word "gay".is another hijacked word.
  12. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    The question is, would Elijah have told the widow to give that last morsel without knowing a miracle was just ahead for her?
    Elijah was a true man of God who received revelation from the Lord.  He could have easily prayed for sustenance and God would have provided.  However, God sent him to the widow for a purpose.
     
    Many today are not operating under the leading of the Holy Spirit when they tell the poor of their congregation to give.  Many are in the way of error when they take collections.
     
    Hard pill for some to swallow, but it's true nonetheless.
  13. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: God Made Music   

    There was a Bluegrass group back in the early 80's called the Pell Brothers who sang a song titled, "My God Writes the Words to the Song That The Robin Sings"  I loved that song.  Wish I could remember the words to it.

    But, it is not just robins that sing, not just birds.  But animals and brooks as well.  And the trees of the field clap their hands!

    I am sorry if you and MC took it the wrong way.  I was not trying to make the thread about me.  I was using myself as an example.  There are thousands of others in my same situation, but I was going by personal experience to demonstrate what the Scriptures clearly demonstrate.
  15. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    One who refuses to give to the House of God is not necessarily in sin.  
     
    That one may not have food for the home.  He may need that money for medications.  God may have spoken to that one and told him to give outside the four walls of the Sanctuary.
     
    its best not to judge another's heart as being in sin if they don't give to the Sanctuary.  The Pharisee of Luke 18 thought he was better than the Publican... but he wasn't.

    Since my Lord and Saviour said there is conscious torment in hell, I'll not deny His Word. Eternal? No, Temporary. That torment will stop on the day that death and hell will deliver their dead up for judgment. Then they will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone and the eternal torment will begin.

  2. Standing Firm In Christ

    Things of the Spirit are not found in doctrines that teach contrary to the Word of God. If it contradicts the Bible, it is not of God.

    1. Genevanpreacher

      Exactly! Glad there is one thing we can agree on.

  3. Standing Firm In Christ

    It's far better to be divided by truth than to be united in a lie.

  4. Standing Firm In Christ

    Looking forward to when the debate between Pastor Markle and myself is finally under way.

  5. Standing Firm In Christ

    When the ministers teach error, only the fool accepts it.

    1. Genevanpreacher

      More Ministers accept the teachings of fools, which helps them to 'teach' error.

    Watching the Homegoing Celebration for Norman Wilson of the Primitive Quartet. Truly a moving service.

  7. Standing Firm In Christ

    The only time "get up" is not a viable option is when on the deathbed. If there, continue to look up.

    " How the tithes has been converted from seed of the land, fruit of the tree and tenth of the herd to hard core currency is a mystery of the modern babylonian church. How the recipient of the tithe went from Levites to Pastors and church leaders is another mystery unsolved." -- Adedeji Yesufu

  9. Standing Firm In Christ

    There's nothing more threatening to a false teacher than an anti-tither armed with Biblical truth.

      I give you ten for this one.

    3. Standing Firm In Christ

      Thank you!

    4. The Glory Land

      Why do you hate the word tithe? I can feel it, your anger. Who was the pastor that stole your money?

  10. Standing Firm In Christ

    If wolves are doing the leading, you can most assuredly believe they are leading away from the true Jesus Christ

    Leviticus 10:1-2. You cannot be pleasing to God while offering strange fire. God said His holy tithes were agricultural, not money

    1. Jordan G

      should we tithe 10% of our groceries? :D

    2. Standing Firm In Christ

      2 Cor. 9:7 has the answer for you.

    3. Jordan G

      so serious :( just a lil' joke

    Colin Heath (of bibleinsight.com) - Tithing In The New Testament: We can conclude from reviewing the New Testament scriptures that although there is support for the sharing of material wealth with the ministry, there is no conclusive proof in the New Testament to support the inclusion of the Old Covenant tithing principle in Christian teaching.

  13. Standing Firm In Christ

    Thought: If we r rOBbing God bcuz we don't tithe our money, then Jesus Christ also rOBbed God. He did not tithe His money.

      uh, Jesus is God so how can He rOB Himself?

    3. Standing Firm In Christ

      Jesus became man while on the Earth.

    4. Standing Firm In Christ

      Don't like that comparison? Well, Abram would also have to be a "God-rOBber," since the tithe he gave was not his own property.

  14. Standing Firm In Christ

    Teachers of the monetary tithe pit God in opposition to the Holy Spirit. A house divided cannot stand.

      still hung up with the tithe? with all the time and effort put into your anti-tithe campaign, you look more like a lover of money than a lover of truth.

    3. Standing Firm In Christ

      Anyone who knows me knows I am not a lover of money. Matter of fact, my wife and I live below poverty level for our state.

      Just can't admit the fact that the tithe is not required of the Church, eh?

    4. Standing Firm In Christ

      Tell ya what, rOBmac... Any time you are in Mississippi, I invite you to stop in and see how we live. Maybe you can even eat a bowl of noodles with us.

      We both are on disablility, living in a rental. one vehicle 8 years old. Hardly a sign of being lovers of money.

    The Church that operates on freewill offerings only operates on greater faith than those that teach a mandatory tithe.

      It would not surprise that if in your Bible Roman 10:13 actually said:
      "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord and never speak positively of tithing shall be saved".

      I mean let's face it, anyone who insists on referring to their offering as a tithe must have an especially hot place in hell reserved just for them.

    4. Standing Firm In Christ

      The Bible says the Gentiles were not to tithe. Your beef is with God. take it up with Him.

  16. Standing Firm In Christ

    I'm at the age where I have come to realize that birthdays are overrated. Every year that your birthday rolls around, you are only one day older than you were the day before. But it never fails... People remind you, "You're another year older". Why do they never say, "You're another day older"? We're all getting older by the days, and I sure feel it.

    Thankful to have been set from the legalistic doctrine of the monetary tithe

    Just as one cannot teach a person to be a mechanic by handing them a wood saw, one cannot point another to Salvation by presenting a false gospel.
