  1. Free Will an Illusion?

    This is how atheists justify their position. That we're all programmed animals. In the Soviet Union they held indoctrination classes for christians to teach them that they did not have free will and were little different than monkeys. A pupil in one of those classes picked up a chair and smacked the instructor with it and then sat down. The pupil said he had no free will, the instructor had him shot. Curiously, several years ago I had a short debate with an atheist woman who said that christians were the ones without free will and that she was of the free thinking, free willing, atheistic mindset.
  2. Amen Kirk.

    Sorry, I didn't take what was written that way. My local church does both at differing times through the week. Our elders do instruct the youth and our young adults also. So what folks are lamenting for is taking place in my corner of the world.

    It's in the bible? “And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” - Deuteronomy 6:7 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” - Proverbs 22:6 “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.” - Colossians 3:20 "That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded." - Titus 2:4-6 There are dozens more verses along this topic but you probably know them better than me John. However, we've gotten off topic here somewhat. Brother Wayne's post is about the wife's biblical responsibilities and relationship to her husband.
  4. I do not subscribe to moral relativism John. There are not equally correct opposing views in the bible. One view is of God and the other is of Satan. "For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them." - Acts 20:27-30

    The toughest part for virgins and wives who have been brought up with worldly values is submission. The culture of America has taught them that the men are idiots and they are to be strong, independent women who can do anything a man does. Anyone seen that Tarzan and Jane insurance commercial?
  6. They aren't really pastors then now are they? More like wolves in sheep's clothing.
  7. a wife

    I did, you're still wrong and a heretick.
  8. These are the end time when right is wrong and wrong is right.
  9. a wife

    One cannot pastor a New Testament Church unless they are the husband of one wife and have children. Wretched's statement is not of God.
  10. a wife

    There was a teacher in our local church who regularly asked the pastor to pray for a husband for her. For years this went on, she knew she wanted to be and was called to be a missionary's wife but still she was teaching. Though she didn't know it at the time (he did) she met her future husband at a missions conference. Then they met again and again and today she's proud to call this young man her husband and they are on the mission field in South America with 3 children at last count. She waited on the Lord because the fella was too young at the time she started praying! So maybe your future bride has not come of age yet? Carry on and the Lord will present her to you in His time, not yours.
  11. a wife

    Maybe your wife will be found in that strange new land you're headed to?
  12. Willow Creek, Calvary Chapel, and the Bible

    Same as my last, these folks and theirmovement are out of the body of Christ as they are not part of genuine New Testament churches of the kind that Christ Jesus built and died for during his earthly ministry. Such are akin at best to the Laodicean church but believers need to separate from them and unite with the genuine article.
  13. Calvary Chapel is not now and never was part of the Body of Christ. It's churches were NEVER New Testament Churches of the kind that Jesus Christ built and died for during his earthly ministry. Yes, genuine believers need to come out from Calvary and separate from this harlot church system and unite with the genuine article.
  14. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    He is and that means Trump is a lost man in need of salvation from his sins.
  15. Prayers for a childhood friend

    Turn this over to your husband. Separate yourself from this man and avoid the dangers of being a stumbling block for all involved. But by no means do not stop praying for his salvation. I love the women in my local church. Christian love for my brothers and sisters in Christ. But I will not call them or even hug them as it is not appropriate in most cases. All contact is with my wife by my side or in the presence of their husbands. There is a line between what is good and bad and I want to be many, many feet away from that line on the good side of course!
