    Well, she posted something on Wednesday, so she must be alive!

    ​You do realize that IFB church are not SBA?
  3. Salyan added a post in a topic: Holding wages overnight   

    Um... I don't know about that, Potatochip. The way our modern society is structured, most workers expect to receive reimbursement for their work
    biweekly or semimonthly. It is expected and planned for. I think maybe the modern equivalent of that instruction would be that wages not be withheld
    for a month or longer - holding the money longer than culturally expected. (Hmm... I think I just made a cultural argument for interpretation of the Bible.  )
    Of course, if you're dealing with day laborers - which most churches don't - that could be different.

    Interesting... haven't heard of any other popes resorting to parlor tricks lately. Wonder what they're planning?
  5. Salyan added an answer to a question: When a FBC decides to give to a new mission, should the members of the church have the opportunity to vote or should that just be up to the Pastors and clergy?   

    Back to the OP - it could depend where the money is coming from. In our church, any significant donations are run by the church during the business meeting (although love offerings for visiting preachers are not), because that money is coming from the general offerings. If the pastors (assuming a larger church) have a personal ministry fund that they are choosing to send money from, I'd consider that money to be 'theirs' to use or give away as they see fit.

    OFP, are those the Moderation Actions available to everyone or are they just for Mods?
  7. Salyan added a post in a topic: What does your church call it?   

    You'll hear both at our church, but Easter is more common. Shorter.
  8. Salyan added a post in a topic: Northern Lights tonight?   

    I miss the Northern Lights. I used to see them all the time growing up in the country, but haven't seen them since moving to the city 9 years ago. Too long!
  9. Salyan added a post in a topic: Western Canada Revival Conference   

    A Revival Conference is being planned for Easter Week, April 5-10. It is being hosted by Beulah Land Baptist Church in Prince Albert, SK.
    Anyone planning to be around Saskatchewan at that time is most welcome to attend!

    Having taken a closer look, I have noticed the following comments. AlanTaiwan, you have called John bitter, deceived, hateful, a 'secret Russian plant' (ha!), a liberal, a liar  and a hypocrite. You've called Pilgrim a hypocrite as well and stated that he is misconstruing the scriptures.  You've implied that your opponents have the spirit of the devil (!). Calling someone a traitor is a very serious allegation - but it was you who made the statement that could clearly be implied as such, not someone else. You have not been called a traitor, or indeed anything worse than 'angry' - which is not a pejorative term, in my books - and have absolutely no reason to feel as 'persecuted' as your posts indicate. Cease and desist the personal remarks towards others, and do stop taking things so personally yourself. They were not meant so.

    Zero! Ha!

    I'm finding it very interesting that it is non-Americans (I'm assuming here based on your locations) accusing Americans of being anti-American. Shouldn't Americans be making that judgement call?  It is hardly treasonous to point out issues in one's own country - treason would be calling for the overthrow of that country or its lawful government. And who better to see and understand those issues than the Americans themselves?

    To be honest, from what I understand of my neighboring country, the America of today is in no way what America was designed to/should be. It has departed so far from its intended path that it is pretty much unrecognizable. Is it treasonous to wish it would return to what it was  supposed  to be? (I've been reading 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History'. Very interesting.)

    Now... as far as mod posts... please remember, AlanTaiwan, that this is a discussion forum and occasionally threads depart from their 'intended' bent. As the topic starter, you have the right to close the thread if you so choose. You cannot, however, tell people they shouldn't be posting because you don't like what they're saying. And please, stop calling your brothers in Christ on this forum liars simply because you do not agree with them. I have never known John 81 to post anything I would consider to be anti-American. Seriously, though, we - you and I - are not Americans. It is not up to us in any case to define what counts as 'American'.

    Hi, Claire! Nice to have you on OB. 
    I came from a new evangelical background. When I first visited an IFB church I was amazed to find a place that actually had good music and dress (and such thorough teaching) - I never knew such churches existed before. I've been here 9 years and am so thankful for my church home. 
    What UkeMike said reminds me of what I was told in my early months by the family that first introduced me to my church: If you find a perfect church, don't join it, or it'll cease to be perfect!

    ​It's doing that everywhere.

    I think OB just doesn't want us to discuss this topic.

  3. Salyan » Ukulelemike

    Okay, now I'm really confused. Are you Mr. Green, Batman, or Superman? :frog:

    1. Ukulelemike

      Haha! I must keep you guessing? No, I liked this picture, because its OBviously Superman messing with Batman by wearing his cape and cowl. Just found it humorous.

    Happy Birthday, Seth!

  5. Salyan » JerryNumbers

    Ha! You actually changed your name to JerryNumbers. I hadn't noticed before. That's great!

    1. JerryNumbers

      Yes, thanks to Carl. When i found out we could change our username I thought about doing that for several throughout the years had referred to me as Jerry numbers. Of course back them we had another Jerry posting & it could be confusing.

  6. Salyan » Zed

    Hey, Zed! Do you mind if I ask where you got your profile pic from?

  7. Salyan » Invicta

    I was playing around on Wikipedia and discovered that 'Invicta' is both the motto and symbol of Kent, so I came on to see whether you were from Kent - and you were! Interesting. :-)

    1. Invicta

      Yes, I am from Kent Salyan. Just noticed this message. Many businesses roun here have Invicta in their names, such as Invicta Radio, Invicta Motors. Invicta Tndoori, for instance
