    ​Easy on there, friend. Differences in doctrine are tolerated by the forum admin - pushing doctrine opposite to that supported by the forum's doctrinal statement is not. And just a tip - the fellow you were responding to is a moderator and was responding to you as such.   So feel free to discuss - but please respect the rules and moderator instructions. The doctrinal statement can be found on the bar at the top, and the rules are under 'guidelines' on the 'more' drop-down menu. Feel free to take a look around! It's actually nice to have someone around that may think a little differently - makes for great discussion. We just don't care to be berated for our beliefs.

    Pilgrimspen, I'm PMing you.

    That kinda isn't what a toast is, though. A toast by definition must include liquid, although not necessarily alcohol.

    Okay, SFIC, that's enough. You need to stop hijacking all the money/tithe/giving threads. You are interfering with the ability of other members of the forum to hold a reasonable conversation without being forced yet again into a discussion on your pet topic. Consider this a warning to stop repeating yourself ad infinitum.

    This discussion is not about you, SFIC - unless you choose to make it so.  PLEASE stop making every discussion on money or giving about your pet topic. No one is judging you for giving, or not - but the fruit of your attitude about giving is very telling.

    Churches do need money, actually. To run a building (which folk seem to prefer having), to support missionaries, to support the pastor (of whom it is said that the laborer is worthy of his hire). I'm sure there are organizations that misuse funds for unnecessary purposes or ridiculous salaries, but that doesn't negate the fact that it is only right and proper that churches need funds. My church definitely needs funds to run - or we wouldn't be able to maintain the building we run programs in, or support our pastor (who earns much less than he deserves), or keep running the Scripture Printing Ministry, or support the many missionaries we choose to help. Could we do without the programs, SPM, or missionary support? Certainly - but we would also cease to be as effective.

    You know, SFIC, I don't know why you seem so prickly about the subject of monetary giving. If you haven't got any money to give, then obviously you can't give it - and I don't know anyone here who would demonize you for that. Why you think it necessary to defend that idea to the enth degree I have no idea - but, as the old saying goes, 'methinks thou dost protest too much.' Your bad attitude about giving is infectious, and that is not a good thing. How about you let us have an honest discussion about giving without poisoning it, eh?
  11. Salyan added a post in a topic: Interesting Perspective   

    There do seem to be a good number of verses supporting the idea that we should give:
    Acts 20:35
    Luke 6:38
    Luke 12:33-34
    The entire passage of 2 Corinthians 9 encourages giving (which is interesting, as that contains the 'cheerful clause').
    We definitely see that God wants us to give what we do give cheerfully - but the verse preceding that encourages us to give bountifully, and the verse following reminds us that God will take care of our needs. Looks like we shouldn't be using the 'cheerful clause' as an excuse not to give!

    Why don't they ever volunteer to set an example of depopulation themselves?

    Wow... You must be old...

    I know a church plant that was able to buy an old Ukranian Orthodox church. Baptist church with onion domes!

  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.

  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.

    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
