    DaveW reacted to Alan in Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World   
    Daniel,
    I appreciate the kind words.
    Thank you for your observations. You are correct. The interpretations of the preterist, using the symbolic and historical method of interpreting the prophecy of the book of Revelation, the Olivet discourse in Matthew 24 and Luke 21, and 1 & 2 Thessalonians, are false and have  nothing in common with history; nor the reality of future events. The interpretations of the preterist are just about as ridiculous as the interpretations of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Mauro is just one of the many false teachers in our day and age.

    Brethren,
    Besides my books, I have a list of five different preterist forums, and or web sites, that I gather information from. Within the ranks of preterism, both William Hendriksen and Philip Mauro are considered preterist. Within those five preterist sites, and books on preterism, you will find out that that Preterism is a form of Historicism.
    At the beginning of Phillip Mauro's ministry, he was a dispensational in belief.  But, he changed radically and became an ardent preterist.
    Two things:
    1. Dave is correct. There are different dispensations in the scriptures and not a new doctrine. I want to thank Dave for bringing this to our attention.
    2. Phillip Mauro openly departed from the faith. "They went out from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us." 1 John 2:19 
    Daniel,
    Thank you for your thoughts on prophecy.
    The next lesson will be uploaded soon.
    Alan

    DaveW got a reaction from Jim_Alaska in 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.

    DaveW got a reaction from Rosie in Put Your Bad Jokes Here...   
    Three pieces of string were wanting a cup of coffee each.
    The first one walked into the cafe and asked the barista for a cappuccino. The barista looked him up and down and said "We don't serve string here". The piece of string walked out both feeling sorry for himself.
    The second poece of string walked into the cafe and asked the barista for a flat white. The barista looked him up and down and said "We don't serve string here". The piece of string walked out both feeling dejected and suffering from coffe cravings.
    The third piece of string had watched this happen and formulated a plan. He unravelled his top and tied a half hitch in his middle, then walked into the cafe and asked for a latte. The barista looked him up and down, considered for a minute then said to "Are you a piece of string?"
    To which the third piece of string answered, "Frayed knot"..........

    DaveW got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Have you heard this statement?   
    I have had people talk about it in terms of ONLY lifestyle evangelism without active evangelism.
    That it was the only form of evangelism that they "practice".
    THAT is wrong, but of course our light should out and give people cause to ask us the reason of our hope.
    We should live like saved people.

    DaveW got a reaction from Saved41199 in 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.....

    DaveW reacted to OLD fashioned preacher in Is the KJVO "movement" dying?   
     
     
    Understand that I'm Southern born and Southern bred --- and when I die I'll be Southern dead!! BUT, far too many Southern IB preachers are cotton candy  preachers -- all fluff, no substance. Southern folk (as a whole) like it that way, unfortunately. Most campmeetings will have messages that the other preachers can shout about. Am I against shouting? Not when it's real. Does shouting make the service more (or less) real? No. Is "putting on the dog" carnal? Yep! There used to be a good campmeeting in Boomer, N.C. but, alas, it is no more.

    DaveW got a reaction from HappyChristian in 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.

    DaveW got a reaction from (Omega) in 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.

    DaveW reacted to Pastorj in Cutting Children off   
    This is tough, but I would agree to cut them off with the understanding that you explain to them why. That you love and forgive them. That when they repent, your home will be opened back up to them.
    Understand that Repentance is not just an apology. There has to be action and that would include restoration, unless you choose to forgive the debt of the thefts - Which I would only do if they truly repent. Pray daily for them and also search yourself for unconfessed sin. You may need to repent also (Don't know the circumstances). I would highly recommend Biblical counseling with your pastor.
    Hope that helps.

    DaveW got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Are We Teaching the Bible Well in Our Churches?   
    But to accept the " church=age" theory one must accept the RC "church" and reformation "churches" as legitimate churches. 
    One must also accept that since we are now in the "Laodicean age" that the previous ages do not apply to us fir we no longer in those ages - they are past.
