  1. And the ark rested......

    I have no doubt that God gave every instruction to Noah that he needed to complete the ark. including Genesis 6:13-15 ¶ And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
  2. It is not just the reformed church but most Baptists over here are members of Churches together, and once a year hold a joint service with all the other members including the Catholics. They sometimes sit under the ministry of a priest, and sometimes the priest is the chairman of their CT quarterly meeting.
  3. The Biblical Tithe: Cash or Crops?

    The tithe was not for the pastor or high priest, it was for the support of all of the priests and Levites and the upkeep of the temple.. It was a national tax. It was for all Jews. Josephus tells us that the tithe or temple tax was the nation's only income.. They had no other tax than what the Romans imposed on them. We do not have a plate, or a bag for collections , or the modern Idea of having credit card readers, We just have a freewill offering box on the wall at the back, entitled The Lord's Treasury. The Lord meets all our needs, despite being a small church of about 20 members with a large building to upkeep. I see no command in the new testament for a tithe just the following. 2 Corr::9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
  4. The Amazing Cell

    A couple of years ago there as a TV programme which featured a number of evolutionists giving their view on how the universe began. One said he believed that it has always existed.. another said there was a big bang from a primeval atom.yet another said the big bang was from a cloud of space dust. None of these said how they thought the original atom or dust came from. Then there was one who said that the big bang came from nothing or a vacuum , "A vacuum is not empty it is full of energy." he said. Seems that is like creation from nothing. No genuine creationists on there though.
  5. The Amazing Cell

    Samsung keep coming out with new ones. I don't know why? I don't suppose most people use a fraction of the features. I don't. I am trying to find an unsmart phone for my wife.who only wants it to call me if she is out. She has an old Nokia which I dropped ad it is now held together by tape. As regards Mikes original post on cells. The thing that I find makes me think what a nonsense is evolution is when I look at my cat's eyes and I can't imagine how they evolved.
  6. How to Understand Revelation and Daniel

    If you are referring to my differing from Alan regarding the ECF. Then you have never read them.
  7. How to Understand Revelation and Daniel

    No. You have stated it, that is not proof.. It has nothing to do with Preterist which is mainly a literal interpretation. They take the Rev, Temple as the literal temple before AD 70. The Historical is mot false. Nonsense. The Preterist was promoted by the Catholic Alcazar to challenge the true teaching that the Pope is Antichrist. No Sir, You are wrong. You can check this by reading writings such as Cardinal Belarmine and others about the same time, which are available on line.. The futurist teaching is not the teaching of the early church "fathers". Also long before the Catholic church taught futurism.. They taught for instance, that the Anthrist would be revealed on the fall of the Roman Empire and the Emperor., that the temple in Revelation was the church, that after the Antichrist was destroyed would be the end of all things. I am sorry Brother, but I can only think that you have not read the history, only what people have said about it. Very dangerous.It is very obvious that you have not studied the "fathers" It that wasn't so sad I would consider it laughable. David Cloud says that and he should know better. Historical is as Rev 1 says, signified, or figurative or as we would say, symbolic. Allegorical, means that there is no actual fulfillment just spiritual truths.
  8. How to Understand Revelation and Daniel

    Not so. The main interpretations, or understandings are. 1 Historical, or Continuous Historical. The true understanding as always been taught by the non Catholics. 2, Preterist. A Catholic teaching. 3. Futurist, with its many variations. Another Catholic invention. As in Preterist, invented to counter the true teaching that the Pope is Antichrist. 4 Allegorical. Or the Spiritual. Teaches that Revelation has only a spiritual application and various allegoric applications.
  9. It is not a case of believing in heaven but trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. 29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
  10. Making America Great Again

    I have not heard that either. We often hear that it was refugees that helped our country to be great. They forget, or choose not to remember, that it was Christian refugees from Catholic Europe that helped our country. Weavers from Northern France, Farmers from Netherlands, for instance. There was also what was known as the "Protestant work ethic" People were eager to work. Now many Just don't want to work, just live off the state. There is plenty of work on farms, picking fruit, etc.but people won't leave their homes to go to farms for work, but Europeans come hundreds of miles to work on farms. Farmers say if they cannot get the foreign workers, they can;t operate. When I was at school we we taught "Our Duty", now it seems they are taught "Our Rights," (I notice that I have got a spelling checker back so you should see a difference in my spelling, typos etc.)
  11. Making America Great Again

    Over 80,000 migrants have arrived in Italy from Libya this year and over 2,000 have drowned. about 75-80% of these are said to be economic migrants and not refugees. They are put to sea by trafiikers in overcrowded and unseaworthy and overcrowded boats which usually start to sink soon after they leave. Govts have stopped patrols but NGOs like Medicins Sans Frontieres have been picking them up/ It seems to me that they are encouraging those who profit from this evil trade and if they returned them to Libya, this trade will stop or greatly diminish/ MSF deny this of course.
  12. Making America Great Again

    Thank you for clarifying, LuAnne. I didn't post that to be controversial, I just didn't understand.
  13. Making America Great Again

    I don't really understand your system, but I thought you all promoted the right of states over Fed govt. I suppose when it suits you, you go the opposite way?
  14. Origin of the Bible

    The Catholic Church developed from the time of Constantine. From that time pope after pope added things to their teaching. If you can find a copy in a library, try looking at Plantina's list of the popes. (Not sure if that is the correct title, but something like that.) he says how one pope added something to the doctrine, and the next something else, and the next, etc. All very slow and gradual. And subtle. Reminds me of a book someone sent me by Terry Virgo, hoe he introduced charismatic teaching into his church. He started a separate study with one family on a separate evening from the usual bible study, then when they we indoctrinated ha added a few others, then a few more, very gradual and subtle.. Gen 3:1 ¶ Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? The early writers were mostly before Constantine, but that doesn't mean that they were all 100% sound, none of them were anymore than anyone is today. Elliott says that when Constantine arrived you would have found a simple gospel service, but in 50 years the churches were full of flowers and incense.
  15. Origin of the Bible

    The "Early Fathers" were not Catholic, they were mostly before the Catholic Church existed.
