  1. We should be training for for witnessing opportunities yes, but also as to what sin is and how to avoid it, whether it be lying, stealing, homosexuality, whiskey, whatever, and teach them to separate from it.
  2. That's not it at all. Unsaved family and friends quit associating with me. I have made attempts at witnessing when the opportunity arose. We are also called to be separate. One who is saved should not put him/herself intentionally into a situation where his/her testimony could be questioned, nor should he/she do, say or act as the worldly sinful world. One who truly loves Jesus will want to honor him and strive not to sin (although none of us are perfect) and strive to do ones best to glorify Him.
  3. That's wonderful that his family is all saved. I just found it amazing how I didn't have to do anything to "lose" lost friends, rather the quit associating with me when I began to follow Jesus and the Bible. I no longer have the desire (and also despise) for things such as alcohol, profanity, sinful music, and so on. I thank The Lord for all of that.
  4. Exactly....the lost/unsaved friends will usually stop being friends with one who is truly saved. Same for family. Of my family only my sister claims to be saved (she attends a Lutheran church), but one sure would not know it by her fruit...she is still deeply steeped in the world and sin. My brothers stopped communicating with me years ago after I was saved. My parents are communicating with me but are not saved, but have seen my life changed and my sisters hypocricy and ask questions from time to time. Like you Candle, my family is comprised of Jesus, my wife and my church family.
  5. I believe it is an FM station out of North Carolina, but I pick it up on the internet.
  6. Just recently found FBN and listen occasionally while working. Hymns/music mixed with some short messages by preachers past and present. Anyone else listen? Curiious. (null)
  7. Kinda like Burger King christiantity, have it your way, pick and choose which version/scriptures to follow. All too many people dislike the KJB/AV because it cuts to the heart. Many would rather refer to one of the many corrupt versions to find which one fits his/her lifestyle and/or pet sins.
  8. However, there is agreement on the KJB versus the rest.
  9. Also, how can any of the other versions be right if they all come from the same line/translation and don't even agree with each other?
  10. I seem to recall him trying to avoid the topic of Hell during an interview on a talk show. He is just a motivational speaker at best....motivates me not to watch or listen to him.
  11. My wife is cooking today as we have to go to church/RU tonight after I get off work. Taking her out for dinner tomorrow though.
  12. I've heard Bro Davison and Bro Gaddis....love their preaching.
  13. Wrong!! Not all "IFB" are the same. A solid, honestly Bible-believing IFB church is not controlling. If you think that the KJV is controlling, you have more issues than you have shown here. There are many people who like to say "the church is controlling" or "the Bible is too strict," and twist scripture in order to justify their sins and make themselves feel good about whatever they think is right in their own eyes, as opposed to heeding the Bible (and not a modern perversion Bible either).
  14. Extended forecast says mid-40's late next week....will believe it if/when it happens.
  15. Was -7 when I arose this morning at 6. May hit 28 today.
