  1. Does Anybody Have Any Music Videos That You Care To Share?

    10 fingers, the recorder, piano, guitar... presumably vocal chords... gettin' pretty close to 15 there!
  2. Revived laptop

    It helps dry out electronics. When I dumped my iPhone in a bucket of water, I packed it in a plastic bag bag full of rice for a couple days – it came out the other end still working! Course, I also had a piece of rice stuck in a port for the next couple years...

    Did you pack it in rice after the spill?

    Ha… How about that… In China they really must walk on their heads. And Australia too, for that matter... Now if I could only dig a hole deep enough, I could see it. ;-)
  6. Emoticons

    Thanks for the new emoticons, BroMatt! You might want to edit a few of the relationship ones out…

    We'll have to have a birthday for it in 21 days.
  9. Missionary School

    That's wonderful! You'll see some friends of mine there - the Paulichen family. They'll be attending BBTI this next semester as well, en route to Uruguay.
  10. Requirements for Pastors

    Check your quotes. Swathdiver said that, not me. I'm disagreeing with it.
  11. Question about looking for a local church...

    Korea's really close to China. He visited. ;) Yes, I am. Check it out! https://www.gospeltruth.net/koreafire.htm
  12. Starting a church

    I think it's definitely best for a new church to be planted by another - but it seems extreme to say that it has no authority if it is not. You are, after all, independent Baptists – we believe that each congregation and pastor is answerable directly to God. (individual soul liberty and all that). To require a church to be planted by another smacks a little of denominationalism to me.
  13. Requirements for Pastors

    The Greek word for 'children' in those passages is teknon. In Matthew 21:28, teknon is translated both 'sons' (plural) and 'son' (singular). When Jesus was talking to the man sick of the palsy in Matthew 9:2, He called him 'son' (teknon). Your argument creates an unsustainable doctrine out of translational semantics. Revelation 12:5 speaks of the child of the woman, Who should rule all nations with a rod of iron, as a teknon. By the above reasoning, Jesus, rather than being the Only Begotten Son, King of Kings & Lord of Lords, would be one of a multitude of rulers/gods.
