  1. also praying
  2. Thanks... I've been using the "Unread Content" at the top of the page but I prefer all threads (newest to oldest) for reference. It's minor thing... Thanks for the reply! (I've ran 2-3 boards myself over years.)
  3. Options on the board seem very limited or else I'm missing a whole set of account settings someplace.... There is no way to set default to view posts Newest to Oldest?
  4. The whole point I think is that these groups may be more interested in so-called social "do-gooding" (?) rather than actually following the Biblical command to witness. As for our example I simply say: Jonah -> Nineveh -> God: "And should not I spare Nineveh.."
  5. If you mark your Bible do this... As you read through your Bible mark or note each time you come across "I heard," "we heard," and similar phrases used in the context of salvation and similar circumstances. It will quickly become obvious just how imperative it is to open one's mouth and actively witness. Here are just a few examples: Jos 2:10 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. Jos 2:11* And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. Jos 5:1* And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel. Jos 9:3* And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai, Jos 9:9* And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt, Ac 19:5* When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Ac 13:48* And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
  6. For anyone who may be interested: Moorman, Hills, Fuller, Burgon, Waite and many other books are available on the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library from Way of Life Literature. This library has more than 155 books on KJV Defense, Baptist History, and Commentaries. PM me with any questions you may have.
  7. OK.. I for one would like to see this thread closed...
  8. Invicta... is this section controlled by a moderator (moderated RSS feeds only) or is it "open" to any rss/xml post?
  9. The RSS xml (source code of this page) seems to show that it was created either manually or automatically just for this post... That's why the link simply links to this page. (I think... I'm no RSS expert) - Strange.... Can one manually post xml here? (manual RSS posts?)
  10. The most "successful" (by that I mean that it was God working through this person) soul winner I ever saw broke every rule in the book! God blessed him and blessed him by allowing him to lead many to Christ but his means was the most unconventional I have ever seen. Very direct. In my view almost to the point of being offensive but he grew a church almost by himself! It was an amazing thing to see. He was heavily involved in an RU ministry so many of those he witnessed to needed some "direct" talk. But he was no different when witnessing to anyone else and the response was the same. People trusting Christ, joining the church, and serving. I am not advocating this "technique" or any other.... It's obvious to me that God's hand was simply on this man.
  11. Apology accepted but not needed. My "displeasure" I was referring to the software. No board system should allow even an admin to accidentally change someones post unless they are doing so purposefully. I too use the quote feature quite a bit but all it does is copy the post into my reply. I certainly don't see why it should work any differently for an admin. Again, I am referring to the software. Again, thanks for the apology and explanation. We all make mistakes. That's why the software should help eliminate them... It was just a bit shocking that quoting someone could lead to their post being altered. I apologize if I was not clear.
  12. Wow.. I can fully understand an admin having the power to delete a post or edit inappropriate content or even ban the poster.. But how does one's post accidentally get changed when an another user is simply trying to quote someone? (edit - I am questioning the board/forum software here and nothing else...)
  13. "If you had young people in your church watching Mormon, or RCC, or any other false "church" teaching and they were being taken in by it wouldn't you give them a warning? If a movement started within your church membership and your own SS teachers started teaching error coming from this movement wouldn't you put a stop to it and teach the truth? Likewise, when we see error taught by anyone, which includes Baptist's of ANY flavor, should we not warn? My personal belief is that because of smart phones, youtube, facebook, eBooks, etc, all this error is only a "click" away. In the old days we were all somewhat isolated from error. What was taught across the country and across the world had no effect on my family, my friends, my fellow church members, the pastor's sheep (whom he's admonished to protect.) That is not true today. We can sit in our our home, car, church, doctor's office and watch any singer, any preacher, and any teacher. That is problematic." Note from Jim_Alaska. 1611, I am sorry for messing up your post. I clicked to make it a quote and then add my comments, but when I did it posted it as all from you instead of showing that it was my reply to your post.
