Topics I've Started

Debate Topics

20 June 2014 - 05:13 PM

Due to a recent topic that was posted here on Online Baptist we are thinking about having a debate forum where only certain 3 or 4 members can discuss in a debate format (not a free for all). 

 

I'll be away next week, but let's get the ball rolling on topics. Please post topics below that you feel would make a great discussion and I will choose one when I get back. Thank you.

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.

Lord's Day 3/9/14

08 March 2014 - 09:30 AM

Not sure if I will be on OB for the rest of today so everyone have a great day in the Lord's house tomorrow. Don't forget to give the Lord the whole day. 

 

Also, after Sunday Morning service, let us know what your pastor (or you) preached on. I'll try to remember to post it here as well. 

Just Want To Publicly Thank God

25 January 2014 - 01:39 PM

This week a long time family friend passed away, Gary Peirpont aka Pastor Gary. Pastor Gary was a close friend to my father. They grew up together in the same town, they went to the same high school, they went to Bible College together, and after Bible college, Pastor Gary became my dads assistant pastor for around 13 years. Pastor Gary helped start Faith Baptist Academy and was also the principle of the school. As a child, I remember Pastor Gary over our house many times for Thanksgiving meals, and he also was my teacher at Faith Baptist Academy, and later, Central Christian Academy. That was all around 24 years ago. 

 

Pastor Gary unexpected passed away on Jan 20, 2014. Just about all of his student has lost touch with him in the last 24 or so years. At the funeral last night, a bunch of us students from 24 years ago was able to reunite again. The impact that Pastor Gary has on our lives was incredible. He was a man of God and character. Even those students who went off their own ways all these years still have the utter most respect for Pastor Gary.

 

Here is the blessing. Seeing how the family has no money to pay for the funeral, I set up an Online Fundraiser to help his wife with the costs of the funeral. I figured most of us had lost contact for 24 years so I set the goal at $2.500.00 thinking it will never be met. Praise the Lord in less than 24 hours we hit the goal. I just keep thinking, "O ye of little Faith". 24 years later, his students still remember the love that he showed them.

Victim, suspect ID’d in fatal car-to-car shooting by M. Dilworth •   

January 21, 2014

LANCASTER – Authorities have identified the victim and the suspect in the fatal car-to-car shooting at a stoplight in Lancaster Sunday night.

The victim has been identified as Lancaster resident Erik Peter Ungerman, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.

The 34-year-old was sitting in his car at a red light on West Avenue K and 20th street West, when a gunman pulled alongside him and shot several rounds into the vehicle, Sheriff’s homicide detectives said.

 

Ungerman was struck multiple times in the upper torso and pronounced dead at the scene, and witnesses saw a silver vehicle speeding away after the shooting, officials said. Read our previous story here.

The alleged getaway vehicle and its driver were found Monday morning, according to Lancaster Sheriff’s Captain Pat Nelson.

“At about 6:30 am [Jan. 20], deputies responded to a medical call of a man slumped over the wheel of a car over at 37th Street East and K-12. When they arrived, they found a 40-year-old male who was deceased from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Nelson said. “Deputies recognized that the vehicle matched the description of the vehicle from the shooting and called the homicide detectives… They came back and they were able to link this deceased suicide victim with the murder victim,” Nelson continued.

The murder suspect/suicide victim has been identified as 40-year-old Jeremy Whitman of Lancaster, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.

Nelson said the suspect and the victim in the car-to-car shooting knew each other.

“It appears at this point that the shooting was as a result of some type of dispute that they had,” Nelson said. “It definitely was not a random shooting, and there’s nobody waiting at stoplights to shoot cars up.”

Those that knew both victim and suspect said the two men were best friends for many years, and the incident was a shock to many.

“Erik was an awesome man who I was in love with for nearly two years, and Jeremy Whitman was our Sunday school teacher from Lancaster Baptist Church,” said Ungerson’s former girlfriend Tiffany Martin. She said Ungerman worked at DirecTV as an installation technician.

Whitman, up until last year, was an employee at Lancaster Baptist Church, and he was also a youth pastor intern at the church many years ago, according to LBC Associate Pastor Tim Christoson.

“He was my friend and brother in Christ and a former employee,” said Christoson. “We’re requesting prayers for his immediate family and for his extended family.”

Both deaths are still under investigation. Anyone with information on either incident is urged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
