Surrendered to preach in 1990 and did until 2014. Now in a sabbatical situation right now.

  1. That was a great giggler Garry! My wife and I enjoyed that!
  2. Amen! Great David!
  3. Me too! I love 'pickin-n-agrinning'! (Hope ya remembered to grin!)
  4. Bro. Scott - Just saw this. Great! I remember the long drawn out discussion we had a couple of years ago. Whew! It was a roughy. Thanks!
  5. I did add one more verse Wretched in my above response. John 3:17- "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." There was the Lord's purpose. We already know we are condemned. He came to save us, by the foolishness of preaching His love. My thoughts are on that love - I hope yours will be too.
  6. And thank you to Jim_Alaska for your statements also.
  7. Wow. That is scary Wretched. So when you say that Jesus preached on condemnation and hell more than any other thing and that Jesus told us to do the same - have you ever looked into that? I have. And that is not true. Jesus preached more on the kingdom than any other subject. And when did Jesus ever speak of condemnation and hell when telling people about salvation or heaven or the kingdom of God/heaven? Yes, he did say people needed to repent and believe the gospel. Yes he told them to turn from their evil ways. Yes, he did talk about how much the Father loved the world. Yes he did talk about people considering different life issues as important and he taught them heavenly things were more important. Yes he did describe a couple of times what would happen to any person who was in hell. Maybe you have heard differently about what fire and brimstone preaching is. As for your statement here - "Once again, there is no Gospel without condemnation and hell." That is false thinking. Yes, we are saved from hell and condemnation, but we don't get saved because we are afraid of going there. We are saved because we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Period. If someone gets scared into heaven - I question their belief. And that would explain some of their hateful characteristics. Especially when confronted by the love of Christ being the only way to heaven. THAT is what got me to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, Wretched. That the Lord loved ME so much that he became flesh to die on the cross for ME. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." I did not fear the one who died for me, Wretched. I was drawn to him by his compassion for me. Fear brings a snare. I was not trapped into salvation, but captured in HIS arms of love, to which I voluntarily ran to. I believed that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God! And that is when I got saved!
  8. I don't think fire and brimstone is the way to get someone to see the love that God had so much for us. From experience, people that tend to 'get saved' by being scared to death, tend to 'git themselves saved' then run on into the world 'safe' because they 'called upon the name of the Lord' and are set for life, no matter what lifestyle they then choose. I know they didn't get saved, but they are now set in steel, steel that nobody can bend. The fire and brimstone melted their need away. But that's from my experience, you may see otherwise. Also, are there any fire and brimstone sermons from the disciples or the Lord Jesus?
  9. *Is it? Also the Ark didn't leave the earth did it? And judgement came upon the whole earth. Any wrath upon the earth by God will be a time that the Lord protects his own. Whether the whole earth or the country we live in. And no, wrath is not an emotion but an action. 2 Thess. 1 - 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord*, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. And - 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Because they are going to be separated from God* by being in Hell and eventually in the lake of fire.
  10. I almost always use my fingers when playing my guitar. I tried using a pick years ago but just couldn't get used to it. When I was young my Dad would let me play with his old acoustic guitar. Later in life after I got saved my older brother found a guitar in someone's garbage and gave it to me. I have played it ever since. An old Martin Sigma Guitar. It may be a cheapy but I love it. It had steel strings but I eventually put the right ones on it that made it sound so much better.
  11. Ask these questions to yourself: - Did the Lord put his wrath upon Noah and his family? - Did the Lord bring wrath upon Lot? - Did the Lord bring wrath upon anyone who was his child when he was punishing the heathen? - Will God bring wrath upon his enemies? - What is the final wrath? - Isn't the final wrath of God Hell and then the Lake of fire? When you answer these questions correctly, you will know the answers to your above questions.
  12. You could do it on your own. All that's needed is a thankful heart and some family. A bit of food helps keep those gathering busy and fed.
  13. We are having - Cornish hens (stuffed) Potato salad Cole slaw Polish Sausages in Horseradish sauce Nachos with dip Reuben egg rolls Strawberry trifle Peanut butter fudge German chocolate pie Pumpkin pie Apple fritters We let each member in our family of 6 choose what they want to add to the list for our feast. This is what we ended up with. Kind of a fun way to enjoy the day together. Thank you for a great family Lord!
  14. Why hello! Welcome!
  15. Thank you Rosie! And may the Lord be a special blessing upon you and your household today!
