#273488 Hmmmmmm....Worse Gaffe Ever?

Posted by BroMatt on 24 June 2011 - 12:19 PM

Obama’s mistake proves that either he is actually an idiot, or he could care less about the sacrifice our troops have made.


My vote is for both.

Thank you. This should be a federal holiday.


#270021 A hole with no hope...

Posted by BroMatt on 03 May 2011 - 05:24 PM

Thank you all. I will go back to those verses you gave me :) Yes, I am in church, and as involved as possible, but as I have found out, standards and going to church doesn't change people or fix pain, it just lets me be right with the One who can.

You are correct, going to church and having standards does not change you. God is the only one that can change you, and when he does, you will go to church joyfully and have Biblical standards.


#266009 Male/Female Roles

Unfortunately, we see abundant evidence of that right here on this board.

I don't want this to happen, but everyone here knows where the door is. If you feel things here are not Biblically run, then you do what you need to do. Everyone here is here because of their own choice.


#264957 If Mr. Trump got the republican nomination for president do you think he can...

If he lost the Republican nomination he could run under the Whig Party. :peek:


#264610 Gore: Global Warming Causing Record Cold, Snow

Posted by BroMatt on 08 February 2011 - 08:15 AM

I've never denied climate change, I just want to know how the scientists know what is the normal climate for the earth. We only have been keeping records for such a short time. How do we know that the earths global temperature is not getting back to what it normally is? The melting polar ice-caps prove nothing, unless you can prove that the ice-caps have not been melting for last thousands of years. How large were the ice-caps when Jesus was crucified compared to when John Hancock signed the declaration of Independence? What was the average earths temperature back then?
Scientists are basing what is "normal" for the earth based on a tiny percentage of what they know about the temperature of the earths history. The information that is put forth about global warming reminds me of evolution.

God put us here on this earth and we are to take care of it, but I know how the earth ends from the Bible and it is not from the ice-caps melting.

OSAS is a dangerous doctrine when it is wrongly applied.


Which doctrine isn't? :)


#262928 New Name for IFBs

Posted by BroMatt on 09 January 2011 - 09:25 PM


I'm sticking with my guns for "separated" :makmiday:

Seems like separation is a thing of the past in Independent Baptist Churches. Anyways, I really do not think the name is a big deal, I think our reputation with the lost in our community is the bigger deal at hand.


Very good and true, but our reputation has been further tarnished by the continual association of "fundamentalist" with those who are evil and dangerous. For some, simply hearing that word causes their defenses to go up and their ears to close to us.

However, for those in our community who we interact, they should be able to see Christ in us and know that at least when it comes to us, the evil associated with "fundamentalist" doesn't describe us.


I'm sure it is different in certain areas of the country, but the people in my city do not categorize us by the label 'Fundamentalist", they more know us by what they have seen from our members. It is like the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. Our community is watching our actions not what we call ourself. If we throw out fundamental, why are we keeping Baptist?


#259496 Year is coming to an end

Posted by BroMatt on 27 November 2010 - 07:00 PM

Why does it seem like every year goes by faster and faster? Maybe it has to do with my age. Nah, that can't be it. :biggrin:

I just wanted to add an announcement to say "Thank you" to all of you members here on Online Baptist. Of course I am being bias here, but I believe that we have the greatest membership of any Baptist forum. This past year Online Baptist went through a major software change, and even though some of you did not like it, you still supported OB through this change. I think you all have grown to like it though.

In 2010 I really do not have any major plans for Online Baptist (Of course that can change in an instant). Instead of concentrating on features, I plan on concentration on increasing the Online Baptist membership. I will be doing some marketing toward IFB this coming year. I would love to hear any ideas that you may have.

If you would like to help promote Online Baptist we do have a few ways that make it easier for you than asking someone to join. One way is social networking. At the bottom of every thread you will see the following.

This makes if very easy for you to add the thread that you enjoy to facebook, Digg, Buzz, Stumbleupon, Twitter, etc. If you already have an account with one of the social networking sites, you can share the thread with others just by clicking one of the links. It is a great way to share with others threads that you enjoy.

Another area is members that used to be active and are not active anymore. If you are ready an older post and a username comes up that you remember, go ahead and send them an email. It will be good to have back some of those members.

Again, thank you all for being part of Online Baptist. We have something special going on here.


#259201 Thou shalt not steal (a question)

Posted by BroMatt on 22 November 2010 - 07:51 AM

Here's some advice: 1 Thessalonians 5:22

Please consult your Bible, KJV only, of course. Or ask a reputable preacher, not a woman on the internet.

I agree with you with 1 Thessalonians 5:22, but I will say I have seen a lot better Scriptural advice coming from 12 year old girls than I have from you. :icon_mrgreen:


#258672 Why do we allow women to sing in church

When you marry a "second-class human" you get him/her a second class gift. I'm glad my wife is first class. :thumb:


#258361 Today's New International Version (TNIV)

Posted by BroMatt on 11 November 2010 - 04:39 PM

Hi kindofblue1977, nice to see you back here.

I don't use KJV. I grew up using it, but really, people don't talk that way anymore.

I'm assuming then you and others speak NIV english? I'm assuming you then use words like abasement, annotations, debauchery, gadfly, gaunt, Nephilim, porphyry, Praetorium and other archaic words found in the NIV.

With all the archaic words in the NIV, it can't be used as an excuse to stop using the KJV.


#258309 Thank you to all Veterans

Posted by BroMatt on 11 November 2010 - 07:33 AM

To all of you American Heroes who have served our great country, I say thank you. :th_tiphat: If you have served please reply so we all can say thank you.




#257557 Today's New International Version (TNIV)

Posted by BroMatt on 30 October 2010 - 07:49 PM

You're shifting the burden of proof. The KJVO position claims that the only true word of God in all the world. No other version in any other language can be the perfect word of God if the KJVO position is correct for the reason I mentioned. You are the one who must prove that claim.


Since you are the one making the statement, I think you are the one that must prove that claim. I'm KJVO and I do not believe the bold part to be a true statement. I believe the KJV to be God's preserved Words in English, and He is capable of doing it in other languages also.

Seeing how this topic is about a "English" version, I think this topic should remain discussing the English versions.


#257369 Today's New International Version (TNIV)

Posted by BroMatt on 27 October 2010 - 08:59 PM

I'm not KJV-only, but I do agree that the TNIV is messed up. Tons of horrid translations. Of course, I don't really like any translation completely, considering they all have stuff wrong (from what I've seen) - like, translating baptizo "baptize" rather the "immerse", the literal translation. And, in some instances, translating ekklesia "assembly" rather than "Church."
God bless,
Joel ><>


If you have found that they all have translational errors, then I think you would be the one to have the authority to make a new translation. If you know they all are wrong, why haven't you given us a accurate Bible in English?
