  1. Are We Teaching the Bible Well in Our Churches?

    I had an aunt who was disabled, illiterate and her speech was, I don't know how to explain it, perhaps I should say distorted. But I am sure she was saved. My dad said as his elder sister she brought up the younger ones. He was one of 14 children in a poor part of London. I know some died in infancy, but I have managed to trace 10 of them on family research sites.
  2. Are We Teaching the Bible Well in Our Churches?

    I third brother Alan's advice. Our church does not have any type of entertainment worship. We just have a Grand Piano, a 1905 Broadwood.. A few years ago we were looking for a pastor and considered an Australian Baptist. He wanted to bring in a 'worship leader' who we suspected would be his wife. The membership rejected him but one single man and two families, totalling 8 members left. It was suspected that our churh may have to close as we only had a small membership. However the Lord has blessed us. While we still are looking for a pastor, we have had three former members who had moved away a number of new members from other churches. One said, "I was starved of teaching there." We have recently had a number of regular ladies from another church, and others not so regular. We also have a couple in our evening service, from a Baptist church about five miles away which doesn't always have an evening service. Our problem is that we have only two young families, and the leaders are knocking on a bit. We pray for more younger people to join us, but most younger people are only interested entertainment type services. We used to have a stand at the freshers week at the local university. We used to get a number of students from the university, but now they ask "What is the worship like?" instead of "What is the preaching like?" The last student we had was a Czech girl who was with us for a couple of years then went to France to study, then came back till she graduated, then left us to go back to Czech to get married. We also get a Lithuanian girl who works on the farms from time to time (she started picking strawberries, but when they found she could speak several languages, they put her in the staff shop) she goes back home when there is no work here. A young man I invited to our Easter service last year has applied for baptism but we have difficulty in deciding if he is saved as he is not good a expressing himself. I believe that the way of salvation is available even to the simplest person who trusts in Jesus. but others think that he should be able to make a full declaration without prompting. I find this one difficult.
  3. Whats for Supper...

    Enjoy your celebration. We know a US missionary pastor in France who tries to introduce thanksgiving to those who attend his church. I receive recipes each day from a French company called Marmiton.Today's email was Menu de thanks giving.It included Dinde farcie accompagnée de marrons. (Turkey stuffed with chestnuts. On their website, if you get the google English translation it says 'Browns" as marron is brown as well as chestnut.)Also, Fête traditionnelle aux USA, Thanksgiving est une fête familiale célébrée le 4ème jeudi de novembre. Mashed Potatoes Comme chez Mamie (like mummy makes) Anyway, enjoy your thanksgiving meal.
  4. What that an invisible planet will be a fearful sight?

    Thank you brother Jim. I will try to remember that.

    Thanks bro Daniel. Adam was created in the image of God, Adam sinned, then Adam begat a son after his own image, not the image of God. Genesis 5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:
  7. Same as Vice Christ, Anti Christ means the same. Someone in the place of Christ.
  8. The historicist teaching which I follow, believe, come of them anyway, that the mark of the beast is the Catholic sign of the cross given by the right hand on the forehead at 'baptism' and repeated every time they 'cross' themselves. In the dark ages, no one who did not have this mark could buy and sell. Even in modern Italy, Baptist pastors say their members are sacked from their jobs and evicted from their houses, unless they return to the mother church.'' How an it be a fearful sight if no one can see it?
  9. Daniel, Thanks for that. I would agree with you but that if one repents of any sin he can be saved/ The same judgement will come on any who do not repent and have faith in Christ. The only sin that cannot be forgiven is the sin or blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, rejecting His testimony of the Lord Jesus.
  10. About a month or so ago, the sky over much of Britain went dark and turned red. People were fearful about what was happening. Someone said to a friend "It was nice knowing you. " The reason? One of the storms that came over from the US, picked up a lot or sand from a Sahara sand storm on the way and filled the atmosphere with sand. It happens from time to time. Sometimes in the past we have gone out to our car in the morning. and it has been covered with sand.

  13. Whats for Supper...

    Cous cous with vegetable stew, chicken thigh and Merguez, I usually add a small piece of lamb, but that is too expensive these days. I had run out of the spices I use, but a builder who does some work for our church was going to Belgium for a few days to visit his in-laws brought some back for me.

    The trouble with that is that it was already somebody's land.

    It doesn't go to the queen, it goes to the govt. The govt. are supposed to be servants of the queen but they only give her an allowance, called the Civil List, She says that is not enough and has to top it off from the own wealth. The queen is not obliged to pay taxes, but that was not popular, so she now pays voluntary taxes.
