  1. Last one to post in this thread wins

    If I lock the thread after posting (so that I win by having the last post), would it upset anyone? Musician4God1611 came up with the idea.
  2. Requirements for Pastors

    I think we just had a breakdown in communication. What I disagreed with was the implication that the only way to recognize that 'communication' involved more than 'vocalization' was via the Greek. Using just one of the aforementioned verses: This is obviously far more involved than merely spoken words . And (Though we both know better than to begin a sentence with a conjunction, just as a preposition is something we wouldn't end a sentence with.) if anyone honestly thinks you are bashing, they have a huge chip precariously perched upon their shoulder while standing outside in a hurricane.
  3. Australia votes on derestricting marriage

    there are already civil unions available to ANY couple, which give full legal recognition to those couples which is recognised at all levels of government and law, so all that is really being sought is the right to call them "Marriages". Or, in other words, the "right" to be viewed as "normal" seems to be the issue.
  4. Requirements for Pastors

    Eph_6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Col_3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. So, if these children (always plural) have a parent die (now making it singular) do the children still have to obey? Not trying to be overtly sarcastic (it comes naturally) but you asked if there was anything else that might bolster or detract from said views. Okay, I'm bowing out lest it begin to look like "bash Swathdiver day"
  5. Requirements for Pastors

    I'm going to disagree with this statement because these (Gal_1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: Eph_2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. Jas_3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.) all seem to be more than speech.
  6. Requirements for Pastors

    So, in other words, Mainland China has not had anyone qualified as a pastor in over half a century. Therefore, they have not had a Scriptural N.T. church in over half a century. Thank you for your answer, if this is not consistent with your answer feel free to explain why not.

    Due to a change in subject matter. If I was indenting the first line of each paragraph, I would still double space between paragraphs. Same principle (as opposed to 'principal'. Spelling also makes a difference, even on the internet. Also, as this example shows, spell check won't catch everything).

    Considering that your message was not properly conveyed, it can make a HUGE difference. Had there not been any context via previous posts, your last reply (having no question mark) actually states that it is the internet which cares about grammar. Still haven't answered.

    Still haven't answered. Also, the only thing your sentence stated (grammatically) is that a joke exist (as opposed to humor being nonexistent).

    More like a case of you acting immature. Incidentally, you managed to get this thread locked. If a person wants to get kicked out, why do they bother coming on a site in the first place. If you are that bored, get a job (or two).

    What does someone have to do to get to Heaven and why is it an undesirable enough of a place to hope you can end up someplace else (based upon your reply that "other" sounds like a good place)?

    No reason given. Do you even believe in God?

    How about speaking English. Incidentally, did you realize you are in the "Introduce Yourself" area. So, along with an apparent intro of, "Hi, I'm Jack and I'm a troll", how about answering the following. WHEN (not if) you die, what will your destination be (Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, Nirvana, nothingness, other). AND what's your basis for your answer? Different subject, continued evidence of being a mere agitator will result in imminent removal.
  14. Requirements for Pastors

    Yep, my question though was how long do the children have to live to fulfill the above. If he begins the pastorate when his kids are 2 months and 3 years of age and they die in the car wreck that leaves his surviving wife unable to conceive 14 months into his pastorate ------ must he resign? Or, if he pastors in Myanmar and the kids die in the RPG attack on the church? Or, does Mainland China not have any Biblical churches or pastors due the one child law that was in effect for half a century?
  15. Is a home church a biblical church?

    While I agree that the "home church movement" is either misinformed (ie. during many later years of the Roman Empire Christians met in homes -- they did so due to persecution, arrest and death. Not due to "early church pattern) or hippy, "anti-establishment" attitude, home churches are necessary some places. In North Korea you can't use a building for a church, you can't let the community know you have a Bible, etc.
