    Not too fond of Travis Burke.  
     
    His book, "Covenant Connection" pushes a prosperity Gospel attitude.  He states in it that the saved don't have to work hard to get money, just get in covenant with God.

    Pr OB ably because it isn't there.
  4. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Grace Vs Faith, Salvation?   

    2 Corinthians 7:10 ( KJV )
    For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

    If one is truly sorrowful for sinning against Almighty God, that one will show signs of repentance.

    Acts 21:39 But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus , a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.

    It is clear by the Apostle Paul's statement that Jewry was not strictly limited to the tribe of Judah.  Paul was from the tribe of Benjamin, yet he clearly said he was a Jew.

    I have on my PC, a video that was filmed at a Jewish Bookstore in Israel.  In this very thick book, (approximately 4 inches thich) is one word repeated 6,000,000 times.  It is the word

    JEW

    It was written in honor of the 6,000,000 millions killed in the holocaust.  Six million.  

    They were not all Judean, they were from different tribes, different nations.  Yet, they were all considered Jews enough to be included, nameless but recognized, in that book of remembrance. 

    If the people of Israel have no pr OB lem recognizing those killed as being Jews, I have no pr OB lem with identifying them as Jews either.

    This one should elicit a smile.

    You are correct, Li!  He did admit later that he did not believe in God.  His documentary showed him making fun of things of God, and even has him training people in what looks like a hotel room how to act around the religious crowd.

    No, not Elmer Gantry.  This is a man by the name of Marjoe Gortner.

    I have not used the software in 8 years, but I remembered it when I saw this thread.  Glad it helped you.

    I used to know a Philip C OB le in Julian many years ago. Well, actually just an acquaintance. He and his wife Lisa were good people. Are you him?

    This is a wedding ceremony performed in 1948... by a four year old child.


  14. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: New From North Carolina   

    Legalism can have serious ramifications and/or consequences. If a Church has set standards that they insist God requires, then they need Scripture to prove that God does indeed require it. If Scripture does not suppore a standard that the pastor says "God requires", then that is a
    Pharisaical form of legalism. That type of legalism is unhealthy and unproductive.

  1. Standing Firm In Christ

    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.

  6. Standing Firm In Christ

    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.

    1. The Glory Land

      I give you ten for this one.

    2. Standing Firm In Christ

      Thank you!

    3. The Glory Land

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

    4. Standing Firm In Christ

      I really don't hate the word "tithe." I hate to hear pastors twist the tithe into something that God never commanded.

    5. Standing Firm In Christ

      Something to reflect on, TGL... If God never commanded something, yet a preacher says God commanded it, is not the preahcer lying about what God said?

      Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

      Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth an...

    6. Standing Firm In Christ

      d maketh a lie.

      I fear for pastors that tells lies about God's will for the saved. They need to wake up.

    7. The Glory Land

      You are right, the only commandments are the Ten Commandments, and that we must love one each other.

    8. Genevanpreacher

      Shame to those who talk about brothers and sisters behind their Achs, er I mean backs.

    9. Standing Firm In Christ

      Shame on you.

    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

  12. Standing Firm In Christ

    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.

    1. robmac68

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

    2. Standing Firm In Christ

      Jesus became man while on the Earth.

    3. 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.

    4. robmac68

      that one I can't comment on :)

  14. Standing Firm In Christ

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

    1. robmac68

      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.

    2. 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?

    3. 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.

    4. LindaR

      rOBmac...the biblical tithe was not and never will be money. It is agricultural. It is the teachers of the monetary tithe that are the "lovers of money"...otherwise, why would these men require their flock to tithe 10% of their gross income?

  15. Standing Firm In Christ

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

    1. The Glory Land

      I know only to count to 9 :)

    2. 282Mikado

      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.

    3. Standing Firm In Christ

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

    4. 282Mikado

      Show me the verse that specifically states Gentiles, or Christians for that matter, are not to tithe. Show me where that is a command of God which you just stated: "The Bible says the Gentiles were not to tithe."
      -
      I've never stated in any of my posts that Christians were to tithe...ever. But I sure don't get all bent out of shape just because some brother happens to call his offering a tithe. But then again, referring to your O.P. I am OBviously just not as faithful...

    5. Standing Firm In Christ

      Read all that is written concerning the tithe that God commanded, Mikado.

      Every instance where tithe is comanded, it points back to the Mosaic Law and what God said the tithe was to specifically consist of.

      Now, stay with me, because this is important.

      The letters sent out by the Jerusalem Council by James stated empirically that the Gentiles were not to be told to keep the Law.

      If they were not to be told to keep the Law, and tithing was in the L...

    6. Standing Firm In Christ

      Romans 7 tells us not to go to the house of the Law. We have been married to the One who was raised from the dead. To go to the house of the Law is to commit spiritual adultery.

      If we are not to go to the Law, and the command to tithe is only in the Law, we commit spiritual adultery when we tithe.

    7. Standing Firm In Christ

      Think about it...

      When your pastor teaches tithing, what verses does he use? Most will go into Leviticus (Law) to show the tithe is the Lord's.

      Most will go into Malachi (again Law) to say you rOB God if you don't tithe.

    8. Standing Firm In Christ

      Well, outside the Law, is there a command for us to tithe?

      Absolutely not!

      The pastor that teaches that God requires tithes lies to his flock when he does so. God does not require tithes of us.

    9. 282Mikado

      I never said my pastor teaches tithing and he does not. Nor do we pass a plate. We have two "offering" boxes at the back of the church and the pastor is never informed as to who gives what.

    10. 282Mikado

      We do have a 10 Commandments plaque hanging on the wall that was given to us by a church we once helped out. We should prOBably burn that as it refers us back to the law and we surely don't want to be committing spiritual adultery.

    11. 282Mikado

      Look, for pastors to be dogmatic about tithing is wrong. I agree with that. But you are absolutely venomous towards anyone that even uses the term tithe. I don't see the need to cut a brothers heart out simply because he likes the idea of using a tenth part of his increase as a standard by which he starts his giving to God. That's between him and God. I'd rather be in his fellowship than with someone dripping venom waiting to strike.

    12. Standing Firm In Christ

      If a brother is giving a tenth because he chooses to do so of his own free will, nothing wrong with that at all.

    13. Standing Firm In Christ

      However, if he is giving that 10th because Pastor so-and-so told him God requires it, he is giving for the wrong reason.

    14. Standing Firm In Christ

      I don't spew venom. I Sorry you think I do, but you are dead wrong.

    15. Standing Firm In Christ

      I will continue to expose those false teachers of the monetary tithe requirement doctrine. They are misleading their flocks, much as the errant shepherds of Jeremiah's day.

    16. Standing Firm In Christ

      And I will continue to preach the truth concerning the tithe... God's tithe as it is written in His Word.

  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.
