  1. Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    Oh so he was around in the 3rd century when people were discussing dispensation, was he?????
  2. Just braggin' a little.

    My wife is a wonderful, lovely, gorgeous, but slightly silly lady. I say slightly silly for the simple reason that you would have to be at the very least slightly silly to put up with me for 29 years, and yet as of tomorrow, it will be 29 years ago that we were married. I love her more now than I did then, and at that time, I didn't think it was possible to love a person more than I loved her. So I am bragging about how wonderful she is, and how amazing she is that she could put up with me for so long.
  3. CCM And their influence

    Yeah, bhuddists have a little wheel thing they spin with prayers written on it, but some Christians use the phrase "prayer wheel" to refer to a "circle of friends" who pass prayer requests around in an organised way. Sort of like a "sewing circle" but with prayer. That phrase in the song doesn't sit well with me. I have some recent (not ccm) songs which are actually good doctrinally, but it is really hard to find.
  4. Is the KJVO "movement" dying?

    You keep saying that "IFB churches are dying". I know there are churches closing and opening all the time, but the reason some IFB churches are dying is more often than not laziness on the part of Pastors, or scandal of some sort. But in reality, IFB churches are not dying. Not generally. In fact, in my area we are seeing more and more people turn from rock n roll compromise churches and looking for KJV, Bible preaching, hymn singing churches. I guess I just don't agree with the generalisation.....
  5. Matthew 12:40

    We do a similar thing today at times. We might say "I spent 5 days at Niagra Falls", but we arrived there some time monday and left sometime friday. Everyone knows what we mean. As to the specific application.... it is oft repeated, but in my experience never supported.....
  6. Happy new year

    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.
  7. Annual Rant about Santa Clause

    Already enough people in the world who class Jesus Christ and God as "Fairly tales like Santa and the Easter bunny". Our kids were always taught that Santa was not real - but they were also taught not to offend other kids who were lied to. It is not their job to correct that misteaching.
  8. Speaking in tongues

    Absolutely true. 1 Cor 13 is so badly misused on this matter. I will only add that Acts 2 says those one whom the cloven tongues appeared began to speak with other tongues as the spirit gave utterance, and then lists a great number of languages that were heard, not just Greek and Hebrew...... But all KNOWN and recognised languages that were understood ny the hearers - as you rightly point out. And how often is the wealth and health gospel associated with false tongue speaking?????? Problem is that when people think "Christian" they often think either of Catholic or Charismaniac, and we all get tarred with the same brush.
  9. Resource Material

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Baptist_confessions I know wiki is not an accredited source, but it lists only "the former articles" from 1812 - nothing from 1811. The page lists the statements of faith in several ways, so you may be able to find the right one from other info.... I suspect that it may not be from 1811, but possibly a "reprint" of an earlier one? That may be why you can't find it.
  10. Missionary with cancer

    A missionary friend of mine has recently been diagnosed with cancer in his digestive tract. It also looks to have spread to other areas of the abdomen, but I don't know how far. Could still be localised and not throughout his system, but no real way of knowing yet. 10 or so years on the field, children to young adult age, growing church on the field. Faithful man and serving family.
  11. The beauty of creation

    Not very artistic, but saw this fella on my morning walk. Around here he is known as a "stumpy tail".... never could figure out why? A kind of blue tongue skink. This guy is about 1 foot long (if he was straight), but they get about half that size again. He is a young adult at a guess. And this where I was walking:
  12. Three Grandsons Saved Today!

    Praise the Lord!
  13. Song of Solomon 2:1 (1) I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. No URL - just Bible...... Commonly understood to be referring to Jesus.
  14. To put aside the context, the two terms are not mutualy exclusive. Even your own definitions agree with that. You stated it is AN ATTEMPT.... You can try to convince somebody of something, but unless you have a way of FORCING your will on them REGARDLESS of their own views and wishes, then they still have a choice. In other words, an attempt to convince does not in any way negate free wiill choice. The only things in this discussion that would be mutually exclusive are free will and forced conformity. I am trying to convince you right now, but you have the free will to refuse or agree with my view. In my view, this is a confusion of terms, not a disagreement of concepts. (By the way, it is incredibly rare that anyone accuses Pastor Markle of misusing words - and ever more rare that they are right.)
  15. Dude..... don't overthink things...... I meant the Rose of Sharon..... I have never even heard of all that stuff you are talking about........
