#374925 Beware!devil At Work

Posted by BroMatt on 31 May 2014 - 10:01 PM

John, I never said in my post that the preacher preaches the same message, so my post is true. :)

A missing part of the story of the OP is that we do not know if God was telling him to preach the message over and over. Maybe the members were not listening so God told the pastor to preach it again. God repeats himself in the Bible, so maybe the problem is with us some times.

Yes we are to move from milk to meat, but some Christians are too lazy to learn to eat the meat.

Yes, there are bad pastors, but on the flip slide, there are bad members as well. We all have sinned.


#374832 Original Sin And Pelagianism

man... another one where Im going to get my head lopped off.

What is the point of making a statement like that? If anything, I should be making that statement. :)

It is sad that this happens. I know pastors have it hard a lot of times because they have a church with people on all different spiritual levels. Some know hardly anything about the Bible while others are very well versed. I've had people come to me and say that they are not getting fed in church. My reply usually is, "How hungry are you?" Because when you are really hungry, anything sounds really good. :) 

 

I love listening to preaching and according to the Bible His Word will not return void. As long as the Word of God is getting preached and I'm letting God work in me, I will get something out of that message, no matter if a kid is preaching or a seasoned preacher.




#374826 Why The Hypocrisy?

Posted by BroMatt on 31 May 2014 - 11:17 AM

Why is that we fundamentalists reject CCM because it uses the Rock and Roll beat, yet we embrace Southern Gospel and other styles that use the same exact Piano Rhythms that were used in Ragtime, Swing and other early genres from the early 1900s.

 

Do a study on the history of the musical genres of Ragtime, Blues, Honkey Tonk, and Boogie Woogie.

 

I really am tired of this hypocrisy, you either must accept all genres as being valid, or you must reject all these other genres that borrow the worlds bar scene rhythms.

 

does 50 years passing by somehow make these genres and styles that were used to promote filth somehow make these now sanctified?

 

after studying and praying about music I've come to the conclusion that it's the rhythm of all these genres that connects them to immorality. 

 

Our young people and others are going to see through this hypocrisy and this is going to cause us to lose any right we have to preach against CCM.

 

You cannot preach against CCM and yet embrace Southern Gospel without being a hypocrite, and don't think just because the Southern Gospel you listen to doesn't have a drum beat and your ok, Even most of the Southern Gospel songs that don't have drums in them at all still have Ragtime Piano Rhythm. 

I'm trying to understand your purpose with this post. With the reply's that were mentioned, I was hoping that you would reply to some of the statements to clear things up, as there seems to be confusion with this post. Are you....
 
1) Saying you agreeing with fundamentalism that CCM is wrong, but tired of what you see as hypocrisy?
 
2) Just simply saying that you have an axe to grind with IFB?
 
3) Like CCM, but tired of IFB's not liking it but singing other songs similar to CCM?

#372466 Question Regarding What Runs When We Access Ob

Posted by BroMatt on 10 May 2014 - 10:38 AM

av1611.com --> Runs the Bible Program

cdn.viglink.com --> Ads that I forgot about, I'll remove that.

api.viglink.com --> Ads that I forgot about, I'll remove that.

b.scorecardresearch.com --> market research, I'll check into this because this should not be part of OB. This may be your browser that is loading that.

what do each of these do?

There are bugs and security risks with coping and pasting in IE. Too much formatting is including when copying and pasting from IE.

Really, Then you wouldn't mind be put to the test would you?


Seeing how we "ban" a lot of people and you been seeing this for years, what is the main reason I usually give when I do ban someone?


#370327 Intoducing Me

Posted by BroMatt on 19 April 2014 - 02:02 PM

You have to becareful what you post here. I have been reading the forum for about 6 years now, they censor and delete here. I have seen many people get banned from here for something they posted. You do not have to break a rule to get banned from here. They will just ban you if they do agree with you.


Not sure where you are getting by our information from as our ban list is very, very small.

To say they were banned for something they posted is quite obvious, what else do you do on message boards other than post?

The last few weeks have been very hectic for me and I have not been able to spend time needed on here. All the support requests, DM's, and tickets will be addressed shortly. I'm going away this weekend to preach revival in South PA and will have a little free time then. The week after that I am on vacation in Vermont and will have plenty of time there to get caught up.

 

Things in my life have changed drastically (In a very good way) and in a week or so I'll post all that the Lord is doing my life.

 

Sorry about the away time, things should get back to normal soon. :) 

 

Mods have been awesome in holding the fort. Don't forget to thank them.
