  7. I'm not much of a Glen Beck fan, but he's sure making George Soros out to be the "little horn" of Daniel 11:35-45

      absolutely it's interesting! He keeps acting like there's something we can do about it.

  8. Men's prayer meeting tonight got the big blessing of finishing off leftovers from the ladies fellowship Thanksgiving supper!! Glory!!!!! Now I can't sleep with a full stomach.

  9. How you got saved...

    I was a kid, 8 or 9 years old, in a Methodist church. I wish I had a date on mine too! The preacher's sermon that Sunday was about going to heaven and you had to have Jesus in your heart. That was all I heard that I remember. I don't remember knowing that I was a sinner, just that the devil was strong in my life. I actually thought he was in my heart. So that night, in my room at home, I kicked him out and let Jesus in there! I didn't know any better. I just prayed and asked Jesus to come in. Years later, when I got associated with IFB and soul winning, I learned that I was indeed saved during that time. I remember how I felt back then as a kid and I remember feeling like Jesus had taken over. He's watched out for me over these last 30 some years since too!
  10. Is the IFB the only true church?

    Just a note on my humble opinion--there are a lot of Freewill and Missionary BCs all over the area here in KY, WV, and southwest VA. There are also a bunch of CoC around too. From what I've seen, the CoC folks all believe in baptismal salvation and that it can be lost. The Freewill and Missionary Baptist churches are up and down the line like my IFB. I do travel alot with work, so I have to be careful where I go visit if I'm going into unfamiliar territory. I check directories, pastor's names, etc. just trying to find out from a distance if I'm going to hear sound doctrine. I was at a Baptist church recently (nothing else in the name, just Baptist church). They announced they were going to have a healing. I about flipped. But it ended up that a lot of the church members just stood around the person holding hands and praying for them. It turned out to be completely different than the way it was announced. And we all prayed for God to work in his own way for that person. It was very sweet. I have wondered since what I would have done had the preacher knocked the person in the head and yelled "heal!" I guess I'd have walked out. I know this is just one guy's opinion, but I hope it helped somebody.
  11. While the Ark Was Being Built

    Thanks for that Dr. Milot.
  12. Prayers and compliments to Pastor Garland Humphries of Hot Spring Baptist Church in Hot Springs, VA who took extremely good care of me while I was there the last couple of days!!

  14. has man really been to the moon

    I must admit, I am a conspiracy theorist. I've enjoyed very much reading some of the posts here and got quite the laugh at some of them. So with that said, I believe in this one. Now the JFK assassination, that was a conspiracy!
