Standing Firm In Christ's Activity

  1. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    Back to the question,  it appears this example of  "non-giving" may be seen as "cheerful" (though the end result would certainly not be)...
     
    James 2:15 (KJV) 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
    James 2:16 (KJV) 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be [ye] warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what [doth it] profit?
     
    Matthew 25:41 (KJV) 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
    Matthew 25:42 (KJV) 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
    Matthew 25:43 (KJV) 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
    Matthew 25:44 (KJV) 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
    Matthew 25:45 (KJV) 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye did [it] not to me.
    Matthew 25:46 (KJV) 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    I didn't think I was "poisoning" anything.  I was merely imparting truth in a discussion.
  3. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    This verse gives me cheer when  I don't have any money to give. (which is more often than not due to my necessities demanding the better part of my disability checks)

    2 Corinthians 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
  4. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    Acts 20:35, when kept in context, is not speaking of giving by all.  Rather, it is speaking of Elders of the Church giving to meet the needs of those who are poor.
     
    luke 6:38 addresses giving that all should... specifically, alms giving.
    Luke 12:33-34 is also addressing alms giving.
  5. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    I am sure God loves His own whether they have something to give or not.
     
    the verse is addressing those that give, whether they are doing so voluntarily and because of their love for Him, as opposed to those who don't want to give but do anyway because of coercion or undue pressure from a man-made commandment.
  6. Standing Firm In Christ added an answer to a question: I had read Isaiah 8, can you tell me for certain who vs 14 is about?   

    who's there?
  7. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Golden Gates? Fairy Angels? Santa Claus Jesus   

    After much research, I found a video that was aired both in Atlanta and in Pittsburgh.
     
    http://www.wpxi.com/videos/news/firefighters-rescue-child-stuck-inside-a-tree/vFhWD/#__federated=1
     
    so, the accident seems legit.  However, the story associated with it has many contradictions and inconsistencies.  
  8. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Golden Gates? Fairy Angels? Santa Claus Jesus   

    Her story seems plagiarized in some areas.  Todd Burpo's, Heaven Is For Real movie came out a few months back.  
    Similarities:  
    Colton sat in Jesus' lap, Annabel sat in Jesus' lap.  
    Colton saw his great-grandfather, Annabel saw her great-grandmother.  
    Colton waited a few months before sharing part of his story, Annabel waited a few months to tell her story.
    Colton saw a sister that had died before she was born.  Annabel saw a sister that Christy had miscarried.
    Reminiscent also is Don Piper's book, 90 Minutes in Heaven.
    Don's accident is unverifiable.  No newspaper articles exist from January 1989 to corroborate his accident.
    Annabel's accident is unverifiable.  No Newspaper articles from December 2011 or January 2012 to corroborate her story. 
    Many things in Christy's book don't add up.
     
  9. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Golden Gates? Fairy Angels? Santa Claus Jesus   

    A new book was just released on amazon, barnes & noble, and hatchette, titled "Miracles From Heaven" by Christy Beam.

    Christy gives an account of an unverifiable accident that happened to her then 9 year old daughter, Annabel, who is now 12 years of age. The alleged accident happened on December 30th, (or was it 29th? two different dates given in two different interviews. )

    Annabel and her older sister had been playing outside and climbed a cottonwood tree.  Long story short, the then 9 year old Annabel, fell into a cottonwood tree through a hole in the tree which she was looking into... 30 feet above the ground.  She fell headfirst.

    Allegedly, she blacked out in the pitch-dark surroundings inside the tree and that's when it happened.  She opened her eyes in heaven.  Sat on Jesus' lap, saw her Mimi who had died a few years earlier.  She also saw that Heaven had "gold gates."  So much for the Bible version that says they were of one several pearl.  John must have been mistaken. 

    Describing Jesus, Annabel said He had a brown beard, long brown hair and a long white robe.  He kind of looked like Santa Claus. 

    Jesus told her she had to go back to Earth, and that, though she had been suffering from two stomach disorders since the age of 5, she would no longer hav ethose disorders when the firemen rescued her from the tree.

    While waiting to be rescued, Jesus left an angel with Annabel.  The angel was very tiny, like  a fairy.  It had wings.

    Now, in one interview, her mother said she was healed within just a few weeks.  Yet Jesus said she would be healed as soon as the firemen rescued her from the tree.  Oh, in yet another interview on Fox News, her mother said she still had the disorders when she was 11 years old.  That was just last year... three years after she was supposed to have been healed. 

    Her book sells for 18.00 on amazon.  I'll pass.  Fanciful writing, I am sure.  One thing's for sure.  Jesus does not lie, so the Jesus she talked to more than likely was an evil spirit sent to deceive her.  And now, her story will deceive many more.
  10. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: "The Gift New Testament   

    That will depend upon which Baptism one is speaking of.
     
    Water Baptism should be only for Believers.  "If thou believest, thou mayest." 
    Baptism of fire (judgment) is upon unbelievers.  Holy Ghost Baptism is upon Believers.  "He that cometh after me shall baptize you withe Holy Ghost and with fire."
    Note:  in John's statement, I believe he is saying some of the hearers would face God's wrath, while others would receive the Holy Ghost.  I do not believe the Holy Ghost Baptism to be anything like what we see in the Pentecostal/Charismatic/Word of Faith movements today.
     
  11. Standing Firm In Christ added an answer to a question: What is the deacons role in the Baptist Church?   

    I served as a Deacon back in the early 90's, prior to my pastoring a Church in NC.  As a Deacon, I told members of the congregation not to put all responsibility for sick calls on the Pastor.  I gave them my phone number and let them know not to let my blindness hinder them from calling if there was a need.  And it didn't.  Many a night, 1 and 2 AM, one could see me walking with my white cane to the house of one needing prayer.  Or to a hospital bedside.  
     
    I also was was there at the Church ready to preach or teach when the Pastor was sick, or preaching elsewhere.  We had 37 members in the little IFB Church.  It was never too stressful.
     
  12. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: A Little Wit Defeats the Bully   

    Back in the 70's, one of my brothers used to be big on telling Polack jokes.  He even enjoyed telling the jokes in the presence of his Polish friend.  His friend would take it all with stride.  Putting on a fake smile to keep from losing the one person he enjoyed hanging with "most of the time".

    One day, my brother was telling a Polish joke, and his friend stopped him with this statement...

    "Wait, before you finish your joke, can you answer a couple questions?"

    My brother told him to ask away.

    He said, "Mike, do you know how to speak the Polish language?"

    Mike, of course, answered that he did not.

    My brother's friend asked, "Then, how does it feel to be dumber than a Polack?"

    Mike never told another Polack joke.  And he and his friend remained friends for many years.

    Wit sometimes does defeat the bully.
  13. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: "The Gift New Testament   

    You are welcome.  I think we need to be aware of what is in these alleged Testaments, so that we are able to point out the errors using God's Word the KJB to do so.
  14. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Drones   

    My reasoning for them not being drones is the fact that they were identified as being akris, that is, locusts.  The Greek is used only four times in the New Testament.  The only translation for akris is locust or locusts.  So, did the Baptist' food consist of honey and wild drones?  LoL
     
    i think John knew they were locusts with strange and wondrous appearances... Appearances not known by man before.
     
    look at the description of cherubim.  They are not described as babies with wings.  They are remarkable creatures that were living, with four wings and four faces.  
     
    Things exist in God's magnificent creation that we have yet to behold.
  15. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic: Drones   

    I don't think John saw drones.

    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.

      Thank you!

      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

  11. Standing Firm In 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?

      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.
