  1. At the end of the preacher's message an opportunity is given to come forward to (1) publicly proclaim what has already happened to a new believer (2) ask for help in understanding salvation (3) to have someone pray with you about a matter close to your heart (4) to ask questions about baptism. There are a myriad of reasons a preacher offers an opportunity for individuals to come and approach the pulpit area or vicinity. We IFB, IB, and Baptists like to refer to it as an 'alter' where we lay our hearts open before Jesus Christ. Christ said if we confess Him before men He will confess us before the Father, Luke 12:8 . In the NT you won't find alter and you won't find pulpit for that matter. These are terms for identifying a location only. It isn't required to be anywhere or anyplace but where we worship God in spirit and in truth. An 'alter ?' if you want but it is a humble and contrite heart before God our Savior. As far as a 'communion alter' I've never heard that once in an IFB, IB, or Baptist assembly. There is a table with the words "This Do In Remembrance Of Me" carved in it. We don't take turns going forward but instead little cup-lets are passed out and trays with the individual pieces of bread are passed through the pews. We all wait for one another, and in unison take the bread and then the cup.
  2. You might have been right around the corner and we could have had a breakfast or lunch. I have not been up in that part of Ohio for nearly 20 years.
  3. Welcome aboard Jake. If you don't mind saying, what corner of the state are you in? Don't get discouraged about the lack of interest in your tracting. Just do what God's Word tells you to. You may get that brother in the work from your work for the Lord.
  4. I saw fruit from a recent door-to-door, it can work if the motive is correct. I came across Torrey's HOW TO BRING MEN TO CHRIST, just the other day. Not at all a 1-2-3 repeat after me process. Its about the individual's preparation for going and he points to 5 important areas. I skimmed it and it piqued my interest enough that after the book I'm reading I want to read it. All I have at present is an online copy but, it appears as a short read, 13 chapters and 104 pages. To echo your point, from Torrey, "When you have led any one to Christ, follow him up and help him in the development of his Christian life." Written in 1893, the truth never grows stale however stale we (I) may become.
  5. WW, you nailed it. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
  6. I'm taking a break from Tozer and just began to read The Flying Tigers, by John Toland. I read this book nearly 50 years ago. Also, I'm reading/studying with my wife, The Christian Home, by Clarence Sexton.
  7. Doctrines...not another doctrines book! Yes, but if you've read Tozer before then you know you'll come away scathed, to one degree or another. The Knowledge Of The Holy, as the title might suggest, centers on the doctrines of God. However, I've read and studied doctrines in a classroom environment and this is no ordinary doctrines book. From the outset the reader is challenged to prepare for a different slant. You are not allowed to close your Bible and think that God's word has been neatly tucked away until the next time of devotion. God's word is alive and in the pages of Tozer's book the reader is made aware to know God we must be living the living word.
  8. Welcome Aboard.
  9. Yes, Christ will take care of this issue. 1 Corinthians 6:1-7 .
  10. I knew it! When my big sister told me to go play in the street it was scriptural.
  11. I used to attend a IFB whose pastor organized and led the FBFI we didn't have any tie other than VERY like doctrines and practice of faith. Oh, and we were all going to the same heaven and spend eternity together in the presence of our Lord Jesus.
  12. I live in S.E. Ohio. I have a son living in Texas at San Angelo
  13. Hi Aaron! Welcome Aboard. Speaking of boards which mission board are you with?
  14. I'm developing a list .
  15. Another thought that occurred while reading and studying. We know things were different for man before they sinned and were turned out of the garden, no rain for example. It would appear communication between creatures was common too. Eve felt no restraint in talking with the serpent. Otherwise there should have been some type of apprehension in speaking with the serpent.
