  1. Thanks!

    I would lkke to thank all who have prayed for me for a liver transplant. The Lord miraculously provide a liver for me, and I am doing well. I am out of the woods yet, completely, and now have a limited lifestyle, but thank God, I am still kicking!

  4. circumcision was for the O.T; Tattoo's were forbidden in the O.T., so why do we deny tihing which also began in the O.T.?

      John81

      Circumcision and tithing were both OT commands for the Jews. Neither were carried over into the NT for Christians.

      Tithing was practiced before the law by the "father of us all".

      That doesn't matter as far as commands for NT Christians go. NT Christians are commanded to give without compulsion. We are told to give cheerfully and abundantly. The NT examples shows Christians giving sacrificially.

      I believe, I believe, Lord help me with my unbelieveth.

  8. Now consider this ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. (Psa. 50:22 from memory, so may not be exact quote.

  9. The Tower Of Babel

    Imust be color blind, but I see people as people, and all need the same Savior. With that said, I don't know any more than anyone else whether the races originated at Babel, but it sounds reasonable to me. The Bible makes it clear that God confounded the languages to separate them (so much for unions!) but it would take years for them to discover who spoke one language or another with so many people obviously present. The color and facial features would make it much easier to identify with those of like tongue. Just my thoughts on the matter. (I may not be available for replies, so have at it!)
  10. Hair And Cover

    A womans long hair shows submission. Those women with short hair usually are the diminant one's in a marriage, or at least in thier own little group. Long hair on men is defined as Absolom was mentionrd to have, and he too was rebellious. Something to be said for the hairstyles.
  11. Goodbye

    I would like to thank Bro. Matt for making this forum, I know it must have been a pain at times. I will be leaving because of my health, my MELD score went to 16, (15 puts me on the transplant list), and I have to be available 24/7 for calls. That means my internet has to go (dial-up) unless we decide to get high speed, which isn't likely. Anyway, I apologize to anyone that I may have offended, and I do pray for everyone on the forum. It was never my intention at first to offend anyone, but I did get in the flesh a few times. Again, thank you Bro. Matt, you have been a blessing to me; thank you for allowing me to post on your forum, I have enjoyed the experience very much, and sincerely hope that someone was helped through it--I know I was! I will continue to pray for all of you in general, as the Lord lays it on my heart. Keep the faith, Jesus is coming again. In Christs service, Martin Dunn aka Irishman.
  12. Baptist Fundamentalism And Kjvo

    Ukelelemike I do not agree. For one thing why change the KJB? Is it really the "thee's and thous" that bother people? no, it's the "thou shalt nots". Secondly, what right does man have to tamper with the Word after the men of old were inspired by God Himself? Even if the words have changed down through the years, who changed the language? Man did, not God. Does He have to keep up with mans idiosyncrasies? Cultures have changed to, but many are outlined in the Bible as a "shadow of things to come", yet the Word of God stands supreme for every generation, and every people throughout the world. We are warned at least three times not to tamper with God's Word, and yet, we still say there is room for "improvement" today. The reason for bringing the Word to the common people was so that the priests would not have a monopoly on it; so that man could know God personally, and finally without running to others to tell them what is right or wrong; we already know where that leads, and yet we run to Hebrew and Greek scholars today to tell us what it really means! How redundant. No, the "common people" have the Word already, and they need to come up to it instead of having it brought down to their level By the way, someone mentioned John R. Rice as being a fundamentalist, but so does John MacArthur say he is a fundamentalist, and he denies the blood of Christ! Anyone can claim anything, but the truth is revealed in their heart and not in their words. John Rice was an evangelist, but there are several things he thought very different on ("storehouse tithing" for one) If we knew some of the things great men of the past have believed and preached, we would not allow them in our pulpits today! (Spurgeon; Sunday: Moody; even John Wesley, and the list goes on.)
  13. Our love for Jesus can be measured by our OBedience to Him.

      Reminds me of this statement I heard somewhere: "The spirituality of a man is not shown by how high he leaps in praise; but how straight he walks in OBedience"

      Amen to that brother.

  14. Baptist Fundamentalism And Kjvo

    I can hardly believe some of the posts that BAPTISTS are posting here! Modernism has taken hold, and the basic (fundamental) doctrines of the Baptists has been influenced by the error of modern thinking. The KJV was good enough, even some people who were of "limited education" were saved through the use of the KJB. It is said to be written on a fourth grade level, but I would say perhaps that is a bit of an exaggeration; maybe 6th or 7th grade! I believe we show our ignorance when we demand an "easier" translation (which is not realy easier to understand, but easier to swallow!) Yes, I believe it was, and is, a necessary fundamental truth. Remember, a man came up with the "five fundamentals" of the faith (or seven, or whatever) and since then it seems to have been written in stone. Did anyone ever realize that it could have been his opinion? Opinions differ on most things anyway, so we need to decide where we stand (scripturally as well as "sensibly") and stand there.
  15. Don't Tell Anyone, But I Am Attending A Sbc...

    Uhh, why not one that preaches in English? That might answer your question.
