    If you're still unsure about Mr. Obama being an evil man, this is the artist he chose to paint his portrait to be displayed in the Smithsonian.

    heartstrings reacted to BroMatt in Calvinism or Arminianism? How do you answer?   
    I find it alarming that too many people think that there are only two choices here. Neither Calvinism or Arminianism lines up with Scripture.

    It bugs me when they sing this one at our church sometimes ......
    I once was lost in sin but Jesus took me in
    And then a little light from heaven filled my soul
    He bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above
    And just a little talk with my Jesus made me whole
    (Now let us) have a little talk with Jesus (let us) tell him all about our troubles
    (He will) hear our faintest cry (and we will) answer by and by
    (Now when you) feel a little prayer wheel turning
    (Then you'll) know a little fire is burning
    (You will) find a little talk with Jesus makes it right
    Isn't that "Buddism" or something?

    Praying that you all have a safe New Year's Eve, and blessed, God focussed new year and year to come.
    I will get there before most of you - just over seven hours where I am.
    But as you head home from Church this evening, remember that there are many who are partying and drinking etc, who do not care for you nor your famly, so drive safe.

    heartstrings got a reaction from Pastorj in Annual Rant about Santa Clause   
    My take on it was that when kids learn that was a lie, they might think Jesus was too. So we didn't do Santa Claus

    May the Lord bless all of you during this Christmas season.
    May the Lord give all of you a blessed time with your loved ones.
    May the Lord bless your churches with a loving spirit this Christmas season.

    heartstrings got a reaction from Jim_Alaska in Original Sin/the Sin Nature   
    This is how I understand it:
     
     
     
    There was sin in the world BEFORE Adam.
    How do I know? Because the "Serpent" was on the world and he was already a liar, a false teacher, a thief and a murderer. Death passed upon men because a LAW was given and they disOBeyed, namely "Thou shalt not EAT" of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  When Adam disOBeyed that law, death passed upon him. Read it for yourself......
    Romans 5
    12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
     
     
    We are "shapen in iniquity"
      Psalmn51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.   We are all sinners.....   Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;   But we do not "die" until we sin for the first time...  
     Romans 7: 9For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
     
    In conclusion, we are not responsible for ADAM's sin": we are responsible for our own.

    heartstrings reacted to Invicta in HOW OLD IS THE EARTH?   
    I don't usually watch David Attenborough's nature  progammes on TV, but last night i saw a few minutes of Blue Planet. He said there was a barren Island in the Galápagos  Islands.  There is a lizard there that he said is the only sea going lizard anywhere in the world,  he said they arrived on the island on driftwood, and when there was no food they evolved into sea going creatures to be able to get food.  They must have evolved as soon as they arrived or they would have starved.  OH no wait!  Evolution takes thousands or millions of years.  
    Of course there is no evidence for any of this and they call this science.

    How is it verifiable? Who observed it? 
    Have you performed the laboratory tests yourself? Are you speaking from your personal lab results? Did you calibrate your instruments correctly and use Standard Methods to obtain your results? Did you use a known standard? Did you verify the Chain of Custody (and sign it) in order to prove that the samples hadn't been tampered with? Did you forget to fix the font when you copied and pasted parts of your posts? 
    I mean no disrespect, but we are more interested in knowing your own thoughts from your own personal experiences. If you personally have proven evolution, then please share that with us. 
    At this point, you are telling us that we're wrong in our belief, yet you've told us nothing which proves such. In fact, much of what you have stated directly opposes the Lord's own words; of whom, you have professed belief in.
    I beseech you to reassess what you are placing your faith in.

    The sheep wanted more food and needed a more efficient means of growing forage and transporting hay. So they had a few meetings, pooled their resources, and bought this.........

    Thank you for your wise words. I now know I was saved a few months ago when I finally accepted I was a wretched little sinner who needed Jesus to save me from hell. You are right, knowledge does not save. I just have to trust the Word.

    No, the mortar hardened up just fine over the weekend, thank the Lord.. This is my first time laying block and I have about $7k in materials on this project, so I'm just a little nervous about everything turning out OK.
