    ​1) Didn't seem to help. I even tried IE. It worked the first time in IE but then when I came back I was no longer logged in and the first login failed.
    2) Since last visit doesn't seem to show anything. If I do All then it works...

    I love the new look to the site but 2 issues are causing me a lot of frustration. First, every time I go to the site I am not logged in. I tell it to remember me but even if I open a new tab and go to the site I am logged out again. This was never a problem before. Also, when logging in using the top right corner where it says Sign In it never takes my username and password the first time. I have to enter the information again at a second screen which points at http://www.onlinebaptist.com/home/login/
    The second issue is that New Content doesn't show new content 9 times out of 10. If I manually browse the forums I see that there is indeed new content. So this appears to be bugged. New posts are how I normally use this site. If it doesn't work properly then it just discourages me from visiting the site. I don't have time to manually browse posts. Thanks for the site. Hope you are able to clean up the bugs.

    I am a pet lover but I see no Biblical support that our pets will be in Heaven. Pastors, popes and laymen that preach that they will be in Heaven often do so for emotional reasons. Theology should never come from our emotions but from the Bible alone.
  4. MatthewDiscipleOfGod added a post in a topic: Why King James Only?   

    I see a lot of criticism of Ruckman and Gail on here but no one giving first hand evidence as Steve mentioned. I don't care for Gail acting as a pastor at times and Ruckman's name calling but as for accusations of misquotes first hand examples should be given. Steve is correct, all men are liars. I have yet to meet someone have has never lied in their lifetime. Fundamentalism's biggest weakness is everyone flocking to their own leaders. For some it is David Cloud, for others it is Ruckman. For others still it may be Sword of the Lord leaders or some school they attended. We need to go back to the Bible. The Bible alone needs to be our sole authority.

    The King James Bible is perfect for many reasons which I don't have time to get into. God promised to preserve his words. Modern versions, such as the ESV and NIV, are always coming out with new versions which change words. The King James Bible has stood the test of time and doesn't lack important passages that the modern Bibles lack. Finally, the modern Bibles contain legitimate conflicts which are not in the King James Bible.
  6. MatthewDiscipleOfGod added a post in a topic: Questions For Ifb On Several Issues   

    I don't speak for all IFBers but here are some quick replies because I need to get to church.
     
    Calvinism: I'm a no point Calvinist and I'm not an Arminianist either. 
     
    ESV: The ESV is missing several verses of scripture and changes the meaning of many others.
     
    CCM: CCM music appeals to the flesh, often has bad or weak theology and often the performers yoke with those that have terrible theology or are not even saved (Catholics).

    I have been following Cloud for years now. I have not seen a change in him but I have seen changes in many IFB churches that gives them reason to be called out. The apostles called people out in the Bible and good ministries should do the same so that people will be made aware of what is going on.

    Good news:

    The following update, from Bro. Cloud's wife, Linda, was received at noon (EST) today.
    ___
     
    I just returned home from the hospital (it is 8:30 pm here) and joyously can report that David has improved some. I don't believe he would be listed as actually serious now, for which we are so thankful. He had a bit of clear soup and some tea today, and was able to breathe a bit better, though there is still fluid in his lung. He had no pain today for the first time, which is also a very good sign. The doctors are hopeful he will recover enough to go home after a few more days.
     
     
    I attribute this all to the prayers of God's people. Yesterday the doctors spoke very frankly and openly and expressed concern that his pancreas might not bounce back and that other organs might begin to show signs of trouble (as his left lung has already). But today, though still guarded, the doctors were much more hopeful. 
    I feel sure he will make a good recovery and will be home within a week. I'll keep you posted as I can. (No internet from the hospital, so I have to wait until I arrive home in the evenings to email.)
     
     
    Our Bible school boys have been taking turns staying with him at night so I can get some rest. This is most gracious of them and I just love them so much for their concern and help.
     
     
    I am 100% convinced that David was better today because of the prayers of God's people. I will forever be grateful for those prayers!
     
    Thank you so much.
     
    In Him,
    Linda

    My wife and I are praying for him. He has been such a big blessing to us.

    The same logic is used by evolutionists:
     
    How do you know your dating of this rock is accurate? Because of the date of the fossils found with it.

    John,
     
    Truth is truth no matter how much time has past. Cloud speaks on a lot more than just music. When he speaks on things such as Calvinism and easy believism the information is never "old". I agree, sometimes Cloud and others should update their examples when it comes to music. The Beatles though are still popular and there was a concert here in Minnesota recently by Paul McCartney, a former Beatle, who was given positive reviews by some IFB members. Also, a lot of "Christian" artists continue, to this day, to list The Beatles as an influence. When I started posting several years ago I was pro CCM. David Cloud was one of the people that helped me realize my folly along with the They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll video even though it was outdated at the time. Sure, some will always harden their hearts and give into their sinful desires but that doesn't mean we stop preaching the truth.

    Yet I see IFB churches still turning to CCM, Calvinism and modern Bibles. He needs to keep speaking since there are those that still need to listen. Most IFB leaders are ignorant of the issues and would benefit to listen to what brother Cloud has to say.
  13. MatthewDiscipleOfGod added a post in a topic: John Calvin Had It All Wrong   

    For anyone undecided on the issue it should be a big red flag that the Calvinists here are avoiding the question as DaveW has pointed out. Calvinism is a heresy which is refuted by the Bible.
  14. MatthewDiscipleOfGod added a post in a topic: John Calvin Had It All Wrong   

    I normally would just send a PM but I would like to thank DaveW, Winman and others for speaking out against Calvinism. It is finding it's way into our churches and schools. We need to speak out boldly against these false teachings and not allow it to get it's foot in the door.

    Dog's get punished for barking all the time. I would get upset if my neighbors didn't control their dog's barking when I am asleep.
