  1. Whatever they've done with music by Sovereign Grace and the Gettys, they must have arranged it in a way that's not contemporary. That's a good idea though--to write and let them know that it makes it look like they approve of CCM. I'm sure if they thought that, they wouldn't have those songs in the hymnal. Mrs. Hamilton just wrote a book on why she doesn't listen to CCM, and they have plenty of other resources on their website about not listening to contemporary music. So, I know they wouldn't have it in their hymnals if they thought it would lead people to CCM.
  2. Praying.
  3. Yes! Philippians 3:13-14
  4. Thanks. Actually, all I wanted to know is if he is in prison, then I could write and encourage him. Since he is repentant (I think), he has a great opportunity to witness to other people by telling them about God's forgiveness. "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. ... Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee." ~Psalm 51:10-13
  5. Does anyone know what prison he is in?
  6. Happy Birthday, Bro. Matt!

  7. Hi!

    Welcome! :)
  8. Does anyone know of a picture/painting of a city on the edge of a cliff, with the broad way to destruction theme? I've seen one of Quebec City and (I think) one of another city. I'd like to get one of those pictures because it reminds me of how serious it is that people need Christ. Does anyone know who makes a picture like that, or where to get it?
  9. Do you think 1 Corinthians 15 supports a pre-Tribulation Rapture? I heard a preacher speak on it, especially on verse 23, but don't remember exactly what he said about it.
  10. Have you heard of the King James Bible Companion that has definitions for about 500 old words in the KJV? If you want to make sure they understand everything, that might help.
  11. Welcome, and I'll pray for you and your children.
  12. We haven't done deputation yet (today we came to Texas to practice Spanish for the mission field), but we hope to start in March in Alaska. We've talked about BIMI, BMM, and some other major mission boards, but think we'll go with my home church's board, Reach International Ministries ( Thanks for asking!
  13. My husband and I were married in August, and are preparing for missions in Peru. We live in Alaska for now, but we're leaving for southern Texas next week to practice Spanish and hopefully witness to Mexicans. We should be able to go on deputation next year. We enjoy witnessing to people, and I feel burdened especially for those who believe in works for salvation. Please pray for us as God does His ministry through us! "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." ~ 2 Cor. 4:7 Blessings, Kayla Trowbridge
  14. I don't think there's anything in the Bible that says he shouldn't be a pastor. He just wouldn't have the personal experience for marital counseling like married pastors have.
  15. "The cause of fornication" is in the context of a Jewish betrothal. Several sources I've heard about Jewish customs say that a man and woman would be engaged, so to speak, yet call each other "husband" and "wife" for a time (approx. 1 year). The man would prepare for the upcoming marriage during the betrothal period, and during that time he could legally put away his wife. "Fornication" in the Bible refers to premarital immorality, while "adultery" refers to extramarital immorality, including divorce and remarriage. "Saving for the cause of fornication" is often thought of as the exception clause, but it actually doesn't provide any exception. If a man has "put away" his wife, he has sinned, and his ability to lead others would be very questionable. However, it could be that the wife left him for spiritual reasons, as in 1 Cor. 7:15: "But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace." I'm not sure whether that would allow the man to take a place of spiritual leadership in the church, as there might be greater temptation for him, but at least he has not sinned. After divorce, if either person remarries another spouse, it's adultery. (Does that mean that they are really still married in God's sight?)
