  1. I got it too, noticed the word "kindly". Probably a "419" (Nigerian) scam.
  2. I believe we're born sinners, but also think this is a learned thing. Only one parent in the home, or mama not letting the boy be a boy and daddy not letting the girl be a girl. Also, society has blurred the distinction between manly and womanly things, roles, and attitudes. It's no longer a "man thing" to "wear the pants", go out in the woods and kill a deer or to be a construction worker, police officer, fire fighter, combat soldier...or President of the United States; girls are doing those things now. Not only that but today, men are portrayed as morally and intellectually deficient, disrespected blundering fools. Why be a man anymore? By the same token, why be a woman anymore, since they're portrayed as weak, oppressed victims of men.
  3. False teachers and worldly churches are not always "namby pamby", "love only" places; They're often harsh, controlling, and manipulating. Ezekiel 34
  4. So were Stalin and Hitler... she reminds me of Jezebel.
  5. Why do the heathen rage.......?
  6. Foot washing, as I understand it, was really just a picture of something like Galatians 6:1-3. You can do it if you want to, and I see nothing wrong with it except smell, toe fungus and athlete's foot but it's not an ordinance like Baptism and Lord's Supper are.
  7. First of all, they have "created" nothing; manipulated what already exists, but no creation going on.
  8. Based on what I've seen/heard him say, he was a deceiver. What about his son, Franklin? Anyone know much about him?
  9. It seems we are at an even worse situation than last election. Last time it was the choice between a wicked Muslim race-baiting, communisitic, baby-killing, America-hater and a Mormon. Nobody wanted to vote for the conservative because he was a Mormon. I'll be honest, I didn't want to vote for a Mormon either. But there are an awful lot ofBaptists, even "Fundamental" ones who are willing to overlook "reformed doctrine" but wouldn't think of voting for a Mormon when one is just as heretical as the other. Nobody is going to be a perfect leader; David wasn't, Hezekiah wasn't. Solomon even went from being wise to being a foolish failure.. But Hillary Clinton is a vile, wicked Jezebel of a woman who will take over the reins from Barack Obama and finish driving our country over the cliff to oblivion. I didn't like having to vote for the Mormon, nor do I like the idea of voting for Trump. But if we "vote our conscience" this time, it seems we're going to make the same stupid mistake as last time. I see no other choice than to vote for Trump. If Hillary gets in there, we're sunk.
  10. Matthew 12 22Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. 23And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? 24But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 25And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 26And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. 28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 29Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. 30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Witnessing the power of God, being in the very presence, influence and conviction of the Holy Ghost (Jesus was full of the Holy Ghost) these men attributed the presence and power of God to the works of Beelzebub( "Lord of the Flies"), the most vile and despicable devil. A person may say bad things about Jesus, but when the very Holy Ghost is moving, working, wooing their heart, and they REALIZE it; it's one thing to say "not today, maybe later" but to openly despise and blaspheme His love and righteousness; that is very dangerous.
  11. What were Lot's last words to his wife? . . . . . . . ' . . . . . . "is someone following us?"
  12. If "Christians" started doing those things, they would elect us to public offices, one of us for President, and import more into the country. But that's not the nature of Christians. The Bible says that the World hates us and that men will kill us thinking they do God a service.
  13. Gen 2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. "Rivers" depend on gravity to work, therefore they have a source which must be fed by precipitation. Some, like the Amazon begin with glaciers produced by snow (precipitation in the cold) but then they also depend on the rainforest. Rivers like the Nile and Congo are primarily from rain. The Tigris and Euphrates, however seem to begin in the mountains so would appear to be at least partially glacier-fed. I don't know; it's a hard call. Hebrews 11:7 says "By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. So that would indicate there was no rain; at least not any flooding but then, normal rivers DO flood every year making flooding something "seen as yet". Maybe this is one we will have to ask the Lord one day.
  14. Hmm.....Seems I heard that one somewhere before...
