    Praise the Lord!

    I think the important thing is to learn to delight in the Lord, and I mean to actually learn how to do it, and not just say you are.. I believe only then will you ever be ready.
    I know in my own life this is what God is constantly working on me about, just rejoicing in him and being satisfied with him, and I'm sure that when you are focused on him and delighting in him, then he will bring her along.
  3. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: My Testimony   

    Yes I did. The Lord has provided so far.
    As of right now, I am in debt quite a bit, and I need a handful of money to pay registration fees and buy books for next semester.
    I know that the Lord will provide for where he leads.
    P.s. I'm currently at Fairhaven Baptist College.
  4. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: My Testimony   

    Here is a message I preached a few weeks back, it's my personal testimony of how God, in detail, changed me from a drug addict to a Baptist Bible preacher, I know if you listen to it you will be blessed, and challenged, The message is powerful, not because I am any special preacher, but because I am simply relating the work of grace God did in my life, if there were any single message of mine that you listen to, I would want this to be it.
  5. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: What Does Repentence Mean?   

    it depends upon what you mean by turn from your sins, if you mean stop those sins, then yes that's a work, but you have to repent of sin in order to be saved, in that you must be willing to change your mind about sin as something that you desire to be saved from, The Rich Young Ruler went away from Jesus sorrowful because of his sin of covetousness, he should have turned from his covetousness and turned to Christ for salvation, instead he went away sorrowful because of his love of possessions.
    Some people love their sin too much to really turn to Christ, this love of sin and refusing to turn away from it keeps people from being born again.
    You absolutely have to repent of sin to be saved, no one will be every truly be saved without the Spirit convicting of sin and a turning to Christ for salvation.
    By the way, the bible says repentance is a gift from God. 
    2Ti_2:25  In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 
    Repentance is a grace that God offers to all who will choose to accept it, any person can repent of their sin if God draws them in conviction... many reject this drawing unfortunately, but accepting his drawing and the repentance is not a work.
  6. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: What Does Repentence Mean?   

    The word repent means a change of mind, heart, or emotion about something, repentance is not ceasing from sin, penance or  paying for sin, reformation, or turning over a new leaf. Repentance is simply a change of our heart and attitude towards something.
    There are 3 things every person must repent or change their mind, heart, and attitude towards in order to be saved.
    The first is Sin
    Ezekiel 18:30-31   Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn  yourselves  from all your transgressions(Sins); so iniquity(Sin) shall not be your ruin.Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
    Mark 9:43-46   And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
    Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    Mark 8:36-37   For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
    No sin is worth dying and going to hell over. Jesus said it would be better to cut off your hand than to go into hell with both hands! We must be willing to repent of sin in order to be saved, you must be willing to change your attitude towards sin as something that you desire to be saved from
    The 2 nd  thing you must repent of is Self
    Luke 18:10-14  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men  are,  extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as  his  eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.I tell you, this man went down to his house justified  rather  than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
    Romans 10:3  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
    The Pharisee was self righteous and had a higher view of himself, the publican admitted his sinfulness before God, which is why he received forgiveness. Many people today are ignorant of the perfect righteousness of Christ and go about to establish their own works based righteousness through religion, or “try to be good and not hurt others” but we are all wicked sinners condemned to die. You must repent of self righteousness in order to be saved.
    The 3 rd  thing you must repent of is the Savior.
    Jesus Christ is the savior, he is also God. If you believe in the false Jesus and not the one of the Bible you cannot be saved:man such as the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses teach a false Jesus that is not the Jesus of the Bible. Jesus is perfect and sinless because he is GOD!
    Consider these verses:
    John 8:23-24  And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am  he,  ye shall die in your sins.The name “I am” is a name for God in the Exodus chapter 20.
    John 10:30-33   I and  my  Father are one.Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
    So three things we must repent of are Sin, Self, and the Savior.
    So a Christian is someone who has repented of Sin, Self, and the Savior, and has believed on Christ.

    I fail to see the point of this post.
    What does what your saying have to do with the topic we are discussing? 
  8. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Pilgrims & Baptists: The Little Known Connection   

    there are Baptists today who hold to unbiblical views, a lot of times the argument is given that the groups we claim as our forrunners held to heresy etc.. but often they are cherry picking the oddballs from some of these movements... Rick Warren I believe came from the Southern Baptists.... someone 1,000 years in the future could try to use him to discredit whatever groups exists who can trace their roots to the Southern Baptists.
  9. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Pilgrims & Baptists: The Little Known Connection   

    John Smyth did not start the Baptist Church movement.
    There were Baptists before John Smyth.
    To name some movements that were Baptist in doctrine and practice:
    the Waldensians, the Lollards (Tyndale was very Baptist in doctrine), the Paulicians, the Albigenses, The Novations. 
    as someone has already said, wherever you got that, it is OB vious they think Baptists are Protestants.. Baptists did not come out of the Anglican Church! 
  10. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Why King James Only?   

    not sure what exactly you are getting at?
  11. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Why King James Only?   

    I completely understood Riplinger's point in Hazardous Materials, basically she says your stupid for using Greek and Hebrew because Satan is corrupting the bible through corrupt lexicons, all based on quotes that you can't even trust. 
  12. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Why King James Only?   

    Yes I have read her book New Age Bible Versions in it's entirety, the way she applies some scriptures is really bad interpretaion, some of her ideas about things really caused me to scratch my head.
    And yes it is completely relevant that she misuses quotes, especially because in Hazardous Materials the main support she has is quotes and information bashing in Greek and Hebrew Lexicons and scholars, so it is completely relevant.
    Riplinger may suport the KJV , but she sure does more damage to the position in the way she defends it... in fact her arguments really don't hold up, she just uses a bunch of quotes that are pr OB ably not even true to overwhelm you and make you think she's a scholar.
    Greek and Hebrew does in fact often make the English translation more clear in certain places, to deny that is a denial of facts, does that mean the English is not sufficient, no, Study of Greek and Hebrew is just a tool one can use, Funny how the same people who are against Greek and Hebrew also often use uninspired commentaries, I think we can all agree that commentaries can sometimes shed light, yet we still use them.
    people who bash on the learning and usage of Greek and Hebrew Lexicons are making a virtue out of ignorance, and if these people were to be consistent, then they need to throw out their study bibles, commentaries, etc.
    Greek and Hebrew learning is a fallible tool, OB viously our final authority is the King James bible, which we know is reliable, we would not even have a King James Bible if the translators held to Riplinger's position.
    I find Riplinger's arguments for King James Only to be lacking, and I would not cite her or her books to defend the King James bible.
  13. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Why King James Only? heres a free link to his book:
    The main points about Riplinger are that she basically claims Inspiration of God, she tear down all other people as authorities similar to a cult leader, Shes a woman teaching and preaching in churches which no other woman could get away with in Baptist circles, and she is not even an actual linguistic, She has also threatened to sue D.A. Waite when they found out that she had lied to them and the publicly stopped promoting her and her books in the Dean Burgon Society.
    The Woman cannot be trusted, and she brings a lot of division into the King James camp, I think she's making a fool out of a lot of Baptist pastors who are promoting her, and also causing King James Bible defenders to be less credible when she manipulates quotes in her books. here is some examples from David Cloud:
     On page 2 Mrs. Riplinger misquotes Edwin Palmer, editor of the NIV. It would appear from the quote that Palmer is questioning the deity of Jesus Christ. She prefaces the quote with these words: 

    “The NIV’s chief editor vaunts his version’s heresy saying: ... [F]ew clear and decisive texts say that Jesus is God.” 

    In her notes, Mrs. Riplinger cites The Making of a Contemporary Translation, p. 143. 
    Actually Palmer IN NO WAY is questioning the deity of Jesus Christ. In fact, in the paragraph cited, HE IS CO NT ENDING for Christ’s deity! The full quote which Mrs. Riplinger has pulled out of context is as follows:

    “John 1:18, as inspired by the Holy Spirit, is one of those few clear and decisive texts that declare that Jesus is God. But, due to no fault of its own, the KJV , following inferior manuscripts, has altered what the Holy Spirit said through John. It calls John ‘Son’, whereas it should have called him ‘God.’” 
     On page 59 Mrs. Riplinger calls John Burgon “a dissenting scholar on the ‘New Greek N.T. committee.” 
    In fact, Burgon had nothing to do with the committee that produced the Westcott-Hort Greek N.T. or any other Greek New Testament.

    some more from Stringer:
    In the January-February 1994 edition of the “End Times Victorious Living Prophecy Newsletter,” Gail Riplinger stated: “Daily, during the six years needed for this investigation, the Lord miraculously brought the needed materials and resources—much like the ravens fed Elijah. Each discovery was not the result of effort on my part, but of the direct hand of God—so much so that I hesitated to even put my name on the book. Consequently, I used G. A. Riplinger—God as author and Riplinger as secretary.” That is an incredible statement in Baptist circles. It is literally a claim to divine inspiration.

    From Stringer:
    MEGALOMANIA ON STEROIDS Listen to the claims that Gail Riplinger makes about herself: “The reader is in for many surprises, some that will verge on riveting shock. Before this book, no one had ever critically examined the authors of Greek and Hebrew study fools.” (Hazardous Materials, p. 13) That’s right! No one ever understood before Gail Riplinger. Without her, you would be forever ignorant. “The worse mistake a reader could make would be to suppose that, because an author is not mentioned in this book, his Greek or Hebrew study tools are safe. All tools have been examined and ALL are corrupt.” (Hazardous Materials, p.37) That’s right! Gail Riplinger has studied everything. She has not missed anything. “That with which the reader may not agree or which the reader may not understand will be rectified upon reading the entire book. All questions have been anticipated and are explained somewhere and in detail. Assuming, ‘the author does not know or understand ‘something’ will only be possible if the entire book is not read.” (Hazardous Materials, p. 40) That’s right. Dr. Riplinger has anticipated all your questions. She has answered them all. It is not possible that the author misunderstands anything. When has anyone, male, or female, ever made such claims about their work? All for the “Greater Glory of Gail!” TRUST DR. RIPLINGER TO TELL YOU WHAT THE GREEK MEANS! “ I have done all of the Greek work for the reader.” (Hazardous Materials, p. 42). What a statement! Don’t do any research. Don’t check out anything for yourself. Gail Riplinger will tell you what the Greek means. Trust her as your authority. What kind of a Baptist allows someone do all of their thinking for them? This proclamation is all the stranger when you realize that Gail Riplinger does not know Greek.   In a May, 1994 radio interview with Dr. Wayne House, Dr. Riplinger was forced to admit that she cannot read Greek or Hebrew.
