  1. That always makes me laugh - when someone says to you that they don't go to church because it is full of hypocrites.......... but they still go to work, and the shops, and the football........... and they are full of hypocrites too..... doesn't stop them....
  2. Actually HS I am amazed that your place is based on a double wide - never would have guessed from the pics. And NoNics - man grotto...... Chair, pillow, somewhere to hang your coat...... I have a couple of shelves in the car port that I can't leave anything important on or it gets stolen....... Had a fishing rod stolen from the roof of my car one night. And the passenger side mirror off my Cruiser another night....... (over a few years though.)
  3. So you are, in reality, fancy trailer trash!!!!!!! Sorry, couldn't help that......... (And I mean it as a joke - please don't take offense.....)
  4. Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. The penalty for sin was judged at the cross and applied when you were saved. Every man's works will be judged separately. This is where the "timing dispute" comes in. Rev 20 does only specifically mention "the dead small and great" and some say that precludes the saved. I am more incli ed to agree with Wretched on this one, but am not 100% settled. One thing is settled with me - it is only the judgement of works which is involved in this question, not of salvation, otherwise we wouldn't have: 2 Cor 5 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Only two choices for a saved person - in the body or in the presence of the Lord - therefore judgement for sin must be completed before death. But tge passage then continues..... 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Judgement for works follows on some time after, and separately.
  5. I should probably add as a cross reference: 1 Cor 3 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. This is talking to those who have laid the foundation in Jesus Christ - in other words, the saved man. But it clearly states that what they build upon thay foundation will be judged - that is, our works. It mentions that there will be reward or loss according to what is built upon the foundation, but vs 15 is crystal clear - this is not about salvation - if the foundation is there, "he himself shall be saved". Some equate this judgement with the judgement of Rev 20 - I am not 100% certain., but I think this is the confusion you talk of. Some say it is the same, others say they are different. Both will happen though.
  6. As you know, your salvation is settled and you will not be judged for it again. But there is another judgement. Rev 20 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. note 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Now, there is some conjecture about whether saved people will be judged here, but whoever is being judged is being judged for their works from "the books" vs 12 ( note: plural). However, vs 15 says that judgement of who is cast into the lake of fire is done from the "book of life" - separate from "the books" which is judgement for works. What is clear is that the works judgement is not for salvation, but you know that.
  7. Hardly big in the scheme of things, but if you think of it, please pray for my oldest son Zac. He graduated from uni with honours in computer science at the end of last year and has been applying for jobs since, and although coming close according to several places, he has not yet got a programming job. He has been "flipping burgers" throughout his uni studies (and before), and is still working there until he gets a real job, so he is not afraid of work, and is being responsible. He is also faithful at church and loves the Lord. All he lacks right now is the start to his next stage in life - a career job. As I said - hardly a biggie amongst the requests for health and spiritual needs, but we can come to Him with all our cares, and so I am asking. Thanks folks.
  8. The only problem I can see is that with a common wall you will have to keep the noise down. No way you could make it fully detatched? Maybe carport between? Then you could use tools later in the evening...... Would love a real man cave, but first I need to become a real man...........
  9. NoNics said: "As a side note: There was also a Dave-W on one of those other forums! Dave...you've got some explaining to do! " I am a member of only one other "christian forum" and that is largely inactive. The only other fora I am registered with are a number of car specific sites to help me keep my mighty Cruiser cruising and my zippy Neon zipping. So I don't know who that is, but it isn't me. And here's me thinking I was the only DaveW in the whole world!
  10. You refuse to give relevant answers to any questions - it seems to me that Alan's "charges" have plenty of basis - you have not given credit to any of the sources you have used, and you have not answered any questions as to your motives or even the relevance and purpose of your posts. You give irrelevant and useless answers such as; when asked how this info edifies the brethren you answered "Directly" which is a useless and vague answer which in reality is no answer at all. How about you supply to us the information which so many of us actually want from you: What is your purpose in posting this information? As far as I can see you are posting irrelevant pseudo-scientific information that to my eyes is actually ANTI-biblical in some respects, not even biblically neutral. I still can't figure out if you are trying to support the Bible account of creation, or attack it? What that means to you my friend, is that your information is presented in an unclear manner - you really need to consider HOW you are presenting this material, and the attitude that answer question with. You can disagree with me all you like, but I am telling you that your presentation is not giving me clarity on your position and teaching - it is giving me many, many questions on who you are, what you believe, and what you are trying to teach. And by the questions others are posting, I am not alone in this.
  11. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Please! Make it stop!!!!!! (Oh and congrats on page 1001 first post....)
  12. I think NoNics and the mods are conspiring together to torture me - there can be no other reason for them fancifully taking away my hard fought 1000 page first post and then allowing such disgusting and soul piercing smiles to be ppstes. The false sincerity behind that smile haunts me........
  13. Now c'mon mods......... surely this kind of obscene imagery is against forum rules???????? (And thanks NoNics - you can't 'unsee' that smile.........)
  14. Hmmmmmmm - methinketh that thou is possibly jesting......
