  1. Wow...a private meeting between Bono and Peterson with an interviewer! Amazing that they just happened to have a camera available...and a director, and a producer, and an editor, and...well...a whole film crew. Almost as if it was planned.
  2. What happened to "the law of first mention"?
  3. *waves*

    Hi Chantie; welcome to the forum! I saw your other thread. I'm unfamiliar with both the author and book; however, it has stirred my interest. I might try perusing archive.org to see if it's available there. We have a moderator here who is well-read and has experience working in libraries...perhaps she may be familiar with the book and/or author. However, I can't speak for her...so we will just have to wait and see if she (or anyone else) can help you with your question regarding whether the book's potrayal of Christianity is biblically accurate or not. If you find that you have time, I would like to invite you to visit one of the websites that I've made... http://john3verse7.weebly.com/ Again, welcome to the forum, and thank you for such an honest, detailed, and enjoyable introduction.
  4. Free Will an Illusion?

    What? Surely C.S. Lewis was theologically sound.
  5. Free Will an Illusion?

    Hmmm... I thought that I "liked" what Wretched wrote, so I hit the Like button...and sure enough...it shows that I liked it. So my brain rewrote history to make me think I liked something that I really didn't like? What a bummer. Sorry Wretched, but I honestly thought I liked what you wrote. Or...did my brain make me like it though I shouldn't have liked it, so my brain rewrote history to make me think I liked it so that I would like something that I shouldn't like; thereby, causing me to perform an action in "Liking" Wretched's post when I actually didn't like it?
  6. That's the part that concerns me...and causes me to wonder what else isn't taken literal by them? I wonder what he means by "the rest". Does he mean the details of the apocalypse, the antichrist, and the millennium...or the Bible as a whole? Somewhere along the line (long ago), churches failed. They failed to adhere to the strict commands of following the doctrine(s) that were given to them. They failed in teaching others sound doctrine. They failed in seeing that they teach no other doctrine. They failed. Pastors failed and churches failed. In so doing, they allowed for all of this "diversity" to creep in...giving rise to false teaching and doctrine...not just on end-time events but on all major doctrines. Diversity on end-times. Diversity on salvation. Diversity on Christian-living. Diversity on gender roles in the church's leadership...and on and on it went and goes. They failed. However, one thing they succeeded in was this...they succeeded in helping to fulfill prophecy, because all of this was foretold.
  7. Has Online Baptist become Reformed?

    Yeah...I don't think Matt has any control over the ads...and Wretched is right that some of the ads will reflect your browsing habits; however, I don't know if that's the case 100% of the time. Depending on your web browser, you can always install the extension Adblock Plus. I know it's available on Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera. Midori has its own built in adblocker. With Adblock Plus, I don't see any of those Satanic Signs, Hell Heralds, Devil Diviners, Luciferian Lies, Demonic Deceptions, Bogus Beguilers, Phony Portents, Sinful Swindlers...I mean...ads. I do know that a lot of websites depend on ads for revenue...so disabling the ads with Adblock Plus on your browser could have an adverse effect to Online Baptist if the ads do provide any revenue that allows Matt to keep it going. Not saying that's the case; it could also be part of whatever "package" is used for Online Baptist...you know...if you only pay "this much", there will be ads, but if you pay "THIS MUCH", your site will be ad-free.
  8. Scientific Facts in the Bible.

    My understanding is they believed that by bleeding a person, they would remove whatever disease was afflictingthe sick person.

  10. Whats for Supper...

    Our son loves cuties...well, our entire family likes them. If anyone doesn't know what cuties are, they are a small citrus fruit...think tangerine only firmer and more round. Like tangerines, they're easy to peel...and delicious!
  11. Faith to be healed

    These are just my guesses; I'm not saying that I'm right... First, I think it's important to note that Lystra was a pagan city with false gods. Second, I think it's important to note that this man "heard Paul speak". He had heard the gospel preached from Paul (Acts 14:7). Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Here in this pagan land, the man most assuredly believed what was spoken by Paul. Though pagan, he must have been so convinced of the truths of the word of God that Paul preached, that he also believed God could heal him. What all did Paul preach? I don't know...other than the gospel (Acts 14:7). However, I would assume there was some amount of further expounding that took place considering the location. Could have been the spiritual gift of knowledge? I don't know; I've always looked at it as Paul could see the eagerness in the man's eyes...or he could see the outward expression of the conviction the man was under. You know how when you see someone who has been tremendously affected by something...whether good or bad? It totally transforms their countenance and demeanor. My only thoughts are that Paul, by using a loud voice, wanted to draw attention to the man (and the event that was about to take place) so that others would see. It would cause others to witness the power of God. Hmmm... Preach the gospel, and in so doing, look for those who are under conviction to be saved.
  12. Four Blood Moons on God’s Feast Days

    In all fairness to Invicta, he did answer you a while back...which I highlighted in yellow (of his response) below... Here's the verse in question...with Invicta's point also highlighted in yellow... Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. I don't agree with Invicta about this (which he knows), but if I understand his reasoning correctly (based on past exchanges), he is inferring that "such as" means that the tribulation will be one of a kind. He then gives examples of what happened in 70 A.D. (I think) to show the terrible things that happened during "that tribulation". So, with those events, he believes that the "tribulation" of 70 A.D. was (and is) the great tribulation spoken of in Matthew 24 since it was one of a kind (such as)...none like it since the beginning of the world to this time nor ever shall be.
  13. The Living Savior

    I absolutely agree with the article; however, it seems that referring to "having Jesus in your heart" has become taboo within the last few years...as if, to even mention having Jesus in your heart is unbiblical. The exact opposite is true... Ephesians 3:17 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, Galatians 4:6 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
  15. Luke 22:35-38 35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough. You arethem.
