OLD fashioned preacher's Activity

  1. OLD fashioned preacher added an answer to a question: KJV Bible App   

    ​I use Esword for my PC but I don't think they have it available yet for Android, do they? (that's what I want for my phone)
  2. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Who Is Your Favorite Pastor Among John Piper, John Macarthur, Max Lucado, Joshua Harris, Aiden Tozer, And Charles Spurgeon. Why?   

    ​My wife had several IB pastor's and missionary's wives gush over "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" and asked me to order a copy. She chucked it only 1/2 way in, totally amazed at the shallowness and lack of discernment of the women who recommended it (and yet should have known better.)
  3. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Prophecy Debate?   

    ​Concerning the above highlighted, my suggestion in the mod room was that offender's posts be deleted (no warning, notice or explanation) and an automatic 3 warning points be given ON FIRST OFFENSE. That should be sufficient to hedge against "it was worth the consequence" syndrome. Subsequent offenses should be harsher.

    ​Part of it is the FCC.
    We had what we hoped was an open door before Musician did. The FCC approved an opportunity to purchase "permits to build". It had been 7 years since the last open window (you can't just decide to build a station). Marconi Broadcasting in R.I. bought over a dozen of the few available. One was for our location (it can only be built in the location the FCC opens up), so Marconi called the churches here to see if there were any interested buyers. We were so we began price negotiations with Marconi. They had already gotten the engineering surveys done and had the surveys approved by FCC. We got them down to $21,000. Understand, what we would be buying is just an FCC permit to build. You then have until the expiration date on the permit window to have a station up and running. You can start at a minimum wattage and upgrade the facilities and equipment later (but must be within 2 years) to the full wattage stipulated on your particular station permitting.
    The Lord wouldn't give us peace about buying, which was good because 4 years and a few problems down the road we would have been unable to maintain (we didn't know that but He did). They didn't get any buyers, the window closed, nobody will be able to obtain a permit to build KOOD (they already assign call sign, frequency, and max wattage before they ever make it available) until the next window opens (whenever FCC deems that).
    Musician had a little bit different opportunity arise, but it's still not as simple as "Hey, lets build a radio station".
    I knew a church whose radio station was shut down after 2 years and the FCC wouldn't give a reason. They wouldn't even give the Congressman a reason. After several months of Congressional pressure they finally said, "There are already plenty of stations in the area of that genre." Reallyyyyyy??? In 2 years, they played less than a dozen songs, it was ALL PREACHING! It's the ONLY station ANYWHERE that I've known of like that.

    My oldest son says football (American football or futbol, either one) is for people who aren't any good at hockey.
  6. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Prophecy Debate?   

    I concur with Bro Markle's objection to the "debate format" structuring.
    I also believe that all onlookers (ANYONE other than the 2 "debaters") should be required (with teeth to the enforcement) to watch - but N OT comment (the nice way of saying "Shut Up!!").
    After it's all said and done (as determined by the 2 participants and/or admin), THEN have open discussion if so desired (of course; 1: It's not my call.  2: There are some here that I don't think are capable of doing so.)

    So, it works -- the plan didn't "blow up in your face".
    It was an attempt with available resources.
    SOOOOOOOOO ---- UID here stands for Unexploded Improvised Device
  8. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Happy Birthday Happy Christian   

    ​I knew someone who said, "I ain't telling my age for just 10% off." Some place are now 5%, some only one day a week, some have no discount.
    That's starting to happen with military discounts, too.

    I was also logged out this AM (Firefox)
  10. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Snub Him Or Not   

    No, if for no other reason than the immaturity of it.

    ​Out of my league, I barely know how to send an email. Tractor PTO is about the limit to my geek level.
  12. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Midweek Service   

    It depends on the location.
    Around here 6 or 6:30 is early due to work. Also, service at 7, home before 9. Do they go to bed before 10 on other weekdays? Few that I know.
    Of course, I don't have to be up till 5 and most the folks around here get up around 6.
  13. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: They have one job   

    My mother-in-law started my wife in the kitchen at 5 years old, my wife did the same with our girls. My 3 boys can cook -- I can keep us surviving.
  14. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Thoughts on the New Format   

    I'm assuming there's more work to be done. I hope so.
  15. OLD fashioned preacher added a post in a topic: Midweek Service   

    Don't have a preference.
    It was Wed when I got here and don't see a need to change it.
    Back in GA we had it on Thursday and used Wed for visitation.
    In FL we talked about having 2 midweeks - Tues and Thurs (exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching).
