    1 Corinthians 7 25
    Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. 26I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. 27Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 28But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.
    Whatever you do, consider and remember the underlined part.
  2. heartstrings added a post in a topic HELP! - Early Church beliefs on Salvation   

    Acts 20
    27For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. 28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32
    They were teaching "perverse things" way back then, just like now. If those dudes were living today, they would be teaching heresies just like today. Some would be chauffeured in Bentleys and $46 million jets, "preaching" on TV in "Megachurches". Some would less conspicuously be teaching Calvinism or Arminianism in a little 60-member "Baptist" or Pentecostal church down the street. Not everything from the "olden times" was "old time religion": they were just as wicked as today. Beware.

    Good for them! And they refuse to legalize sodomite marriages too. Sometimes I wonder of it would be better to move to Russia; Putin seems to have more sense than half the people over here. I still don't trust him but it's a thought.

    I think I may have been cased.......
    Guy just cam  in the showroom, left hand in his pocket, asking me if I make "funeral invitations". it's a sign shop, y'all. After very  politely directed him to a couple of print shops. he took the hand out of his pocket, thanked me and left.  Maybe he wasn't but the ones who ask if I fix radios or provide computer tech support make me even more suspicious. Haven't been held up yet but maybe I look too poor to have anything worth the trouble. Thank the Lord.

  5. heartstrings added a post in a topic What Does Repentence Mean?   

    Maybe I see where you're coming from. Repent has only one root meaning. It basically means to turn from or against something. God's creation had "turned against" him in Genesis 6, God "turned against" the evil he intended for Nineveh when the Assyrians turned against their sin, in faith toward God, in their hearts. That took place BEFORE they put on sackcloth in Jonah 3 because the Bible says they BELIEVED the preaching of Jonah. So they didn't merely "turn over a new leaf". Truly. to be saved one cannot merely "turn against" or quit their sin: they must repent in faith toward God. No one has said any different in this thread, to my knowledge. The sense or application of repentance I've been referring to is the following...
    Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 20:21

    Luke 18
    9And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
    #1 False "belief", no repentence, trusting in self, and works.
    #2.  Genuine faith, with repentance, trusting in God, but no works.
    #3. Justified before God and READY FOR works.

    Nay, nay.
    We keep saying it over and over....the "turning" to God, away from sin and self,  takes place only in your heart. Matter of fact, one can be a deaf mute but their heart can still say  "God be merciful to me, a sinner". I've yet to see anyone do any kind of "work" with just their heart or mind.

    Isn't that sad? But true.
    I love the King James language. It's beautiful poetry to my ears.

    Although around the time, 1611, when the King James was translated and published, likely every man on the street knew what a "wen" was.

    Some man/woman taught you your ABC's, then how to read. Then you were later taught vocabulary words, Have you ever looked up English words in a dictionary? Does your vocabulary now include every word in the English language? You are using a computer right now. Don't tell me about "manmade aids". .......Glede, ouches, besom, cogitations, greaves, chapiter, cumin, quaternion, alamoth, parbar   Tell me what those King James words mean without looking them up. All of them. Really bro.

    Well then.....just build me a Cabin in the Corner of Gloryland.... lol 
    Seriously, I would love to look through those two dictionaries. This is from one I use a lot....
    1325-75; Middle English < Latin mānsiōn- (stem of mānsiō) an abiding, abode. See manse, -ion  http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mansion

    Here are some more which are used differently today.: prevent, quick, quit, reins, road, smart, corn, halt, let, meat, meet, occupy, overcharged, singular, careful, dumb. Then there are words like "ouches" and "besom" that most people would have no idea because the word isn't used today at all. Nobody here is complaining about the King James, bro, we're just saying it takes digging and studying to learn what you need to know.

    The King James is the perfect, unadulterated, preserved, "very pure" word of God for English speaking people, but Modern English has been corrupted over time. This is why a word like "conversation" today means "having a discussion" whereas in the King James it meant "manner of life". There are loads of words like that in the King James but doesn't bother me a bit to look them up. It's part of what's called "studying". 2 Timothy 2:15
