    Folks, my time here has come to an end.  In the beginning I really enjoyed the time spent here sharpening my irons so to speak and learning when I was wrong.  
     
    Over the past year I've become increasingly frustrated with the rampant false teachings and some dear online "friends" whom I persuaded to stay on board for a time, finally left.  Others strong in the faith rarely post anymore, while others who used to be strong seem to be adopting the doctrines of fools.
     
    Brother Matt, thank you for providing this forum for Independent Baptists and the lost and I pray that you'll be able to devote more time to it in the future and set it aright on the tracks again.
     
    My family has appreciated your prayers and we've been honored to pray for your needs as well.
     
    Goodbye for now.

    "A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;" - Titus 3:10
     
    Think I went over.

    You're way off base LuAnne.  Because their hearts were hardened, the Lord allowed divorce for one reason only during the Law, for fornication.  This is what Jesus was referring to when he spoke to the Pharisees in Matthew 19, not the disciples or church.
     
    If we accept that Jesus gave us something new, then Paul contradicts it with 1 Corinthians 7.  That's ridiculous.  I forget the verse but there's a saying that Jesus didn't tell us everything, some things he left for later, for Paul to reveal to us.  
     
    The Holy Spirit had Paul write no divorce for any reason.  Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Paul are not going to contradict themselves so you have to be, you are, incorrect.

    No, no and no.  Jesus simply reiterated the exemption given by Moses under the Law.  This is the plain reading and it is in accord with Paul when he gives us the doctrine later.  Jesus gave us nothing new.  Paul did, or rather, it was a restoration of the time before the law, no divorce for any reason.
     
    Under your thinking, you make one of them wrong and that is not so.

    And yet this same ideology used the word lame with abandon in times past, in their Hollywood movies.  
     
    So they have all these words that are off limits, what is the first thing they do in a conversation with us when they cannot get past the facts of whatever it is we're discussing?  hehehe

    Now will someone show Alisa a real bible?  The King James Bible!
  7. swathdiver added a post in a topic: What Advice Do You Have Or Same-Sex Couples   

    Yes so.  One has to twist and ignore the scripture verses to be taken any other way.

    I agree with your last Larry but disagree about Prohibition.  There was m OB violence but that's a pittance compared to the havoc heaped upon our society today.  I was taught that the FBI's primary role in those early days was to root out subversives like Communists and spies.
     
    The war on drugs today is a travesty.  It should have been treated as a threat to National Security and the drug runners and dealers punished with death.  Hangings used to be a great deterrent to crime.  Now, there's little deterrent to crime, save for the Gospel.

    Marriage is under the purview of the New Testament Church.  Separation of church and state we should scream to the liberals!  
     
    And yes, Romans 13, Hitler's favorite chapter of the bible, mis-applying it, not understanding it right, has led to much compromise and outright abandonment of the things of God in favor of the State.

    Wow!  Did they vote for Roosevelt?      Never met one myself but then I'm but a babe in Christ.  
     
    When confronted with the truth of what that degenerate political party stands for, one would have to be spiritually blind to stay.  
     
    Who could claim saving grace and Margaret Sanger in the same breath?  Who would hail Stalin, Mao or Darwin and still sing the praises of Jesus Christ?

    If your pastor only marries members of the church, he'll never marry a couple of sodomites.  Since we both belong to NT churches, the only candidates for membership are biblically saved Christians.  The excludes the sodomites.
     
    Should the state try to mandate such, the local churches will cry and go to battle (politically speaking) over separation of church and state, and rightfully so.

    Right, it's not an accident that these things happen.  It's of Satan for many of the participants are blind to what is actually happening; the bubble around their head protecting them from reality.

    The Statists love to separate people into groups and elevate one over the others for a time for their own power and control.  They love dissension and strife.

    Can you give an example of what that would look like should it come to your church?

    Why don't we go back to invalids and imbeciles and retards, that was a lot more fun.

    10-17-12 - "For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company." - Psalm 55:12-14
