  1. Matthew,

    May the Lord bless you and your family.

    Happy birthday!


  2. I personally have been coming to this site less often because I don't see Cloud's feed on here any longer. I believe Cloud makes some great points that should be posted here and discussed.
  3. I certainly don't want to make you or anyone else look stupid. The King James doesn't have errors but the Geneva does. Why would I want to settle for second best? My first Bible was the NIV and I believe people can be saved using almost any translation. The Geneva isn't even easy to come by since most publishers don't print it. I have pretty much every edition in electronic format but I wouldn't bother to get it in a printed version. I'm just glad we won't have these kinds of debates in Heaven.
  4. The Geneva Bible contains errors while the King James does not.
  5. Who also lied under oath which is a felony last time I checked...
  6. Trump has no chance of winning against Clinton. Trump is a profane narcissist who has no fear of God. He wouldn't make a good leader just like Clinton won't make a good leader. The "Republicans" voting for him right now are foolish.
  7. I believe my King James Bible is error free. It doesn't need any kind of correction. As soon as you say your Bible isn't perfect you put yourself in authority over God's words. Men love to be in control so believing in a perfect Bible isn't popular, even in IFB circles.
  8. ‚Äč1) 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...
  9. 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 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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).
  14. 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.
  15. 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
