About Jordan Kurecki

  • Bio I was raised in a broken home, I never really went to churches at all growing up except for maybe 5 or 6 times at random churches when I was younger, I became hopelessly addicted to drugs in my teen years, My life was falling apart, I was miserable and without hope in this world, then I started going to a Baptist church with a friend, I heard the Gospel and I repented of my sins and turned to Jesus Christ to save me, My life has been incredible since the Lord came into my life. I go to Fairhaven Baptist College

    When it says after Easter, it's pretty obvious that Herod was waiting until after the 7 days of unleavened bread, or as Ezekiel 45:21 refers to it, Passover.
    This a typical example of where Independent Fundamental Baptist turn into Parrots without doing a hard look at something and comparing scripture with scripture.
    Personally I think Easter is just a synonym for Passover here, I think this may very well be a word God had translated to be a stumblingblock to the scoffer and skeptic of the scriptures.
  2. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Easter   

    ​Eze_45:21  In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. 
     
    People always seem to forget this verses, where passover is referred to as the whole seven days.
     
    So the argument from Numbers 28 is weak support for it being a Pagan holiday.
  3. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Easter   

    Ok, I am really tired of hearing this whole idea that Easter is a Pagan Holiday, if Luke meant to convey that it was a Pagan holiday, why would he use the word Pascha, which is the word for Passover in the Greek? It makes absolutely no sense, Do you really think there were two different festivals? 1 being the Jewish Passover and the other being a Pagan Holiday and yet somehow both called Pascha? Also as has already been said, previous translations often used Passover and Easter interchangeably, I believe it was Tyndale that actually had the one verse where it called Christ our Easter Lamb instead of Passover Lamb, I am convinced that Easter is simply a synonym for Passover and can be used interchangeably, saying it is a Pagan holiday that Herod was celebrating is such a long stretch that is unmerited by logic, common sense, and context, he was waiting till after Passover to please the Jews...

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.   http://jordankurecki.sermon.net/main/main/20270674
  8. 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.
  9. 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? 
  11. 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.
  12. 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! 
  13. Jordan Kurecki added a post in a topic: Why King James Only?   

    not sure what exactly you are getting at?
  14. 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. 
  15. 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.
