OSAS is a dangerous doctrine when it is wrongly applied.

Which doctrine isn't? :)

#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:

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.

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.

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.

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?

Today's New International Version was produced to meet the ever-growing spiritual needs of today's generation of believers—as well as to help nourish the next generation of believers—by offering a Bible that faithfully communicates the timeless truths of God's Word.

Like the original NIV was not bad enough.

#255186 More Baptist pastors adopt bishop title

Bishop is better than King.

Yet nothing is better than the Lord of lords, nor the King of kings.

You got that right. :thumb:

#252721 Some advice

Posted by BroMatt on 01 September 2010 - 11:50 AM

Do you speak King James English around your house? Probably not.

I love that line. It show the intelligence level of the person stating the question.
Do you speak like the NIV English? How about NAS English? What about NASV English?
Modern versions have hundreds of archaic words that people do not speak anymore. So do you speak NIV English around your house? Truth is nobody speaks like any of the modern versions.

I'm done hijacking this thread. Back on topic.

asysin2leads, I'm praying for you.

Fellowship and being Friendly are two different things. The two can't be compared.

While I would not Fellowship with a Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Anglican, etc., I would be Friendly and help one out in the time of need. I've helped out many people in the time of need with food and clothing, but I would not sit there and hold their hand and sing "Kumbaya, my Lord" with them.

Fellowship and being Friendly are two different things.

Being friendly with a few waiters can really do wonders for your ministry! In fact, we got a couple of these waiters saved along the way.

Now, I think you are getting the idea. Be more friendly to everyone (not just waiters) and it will do wonders for your ministry.
