#339514 Good Tips On Saving Money…. $$$

Posted by amblivion on 12 August 2013 - 07:56 AM

Do your own computer upgrades and repairs. Adding a stick of RAM is as easy as plugging in a lamp and you can also easily replace things like power supplies, modems, ethernet cards or the CPU(main processor)


If you are going to upgrade your computer, be sure to shop at Newegg and Tigerdirect online. Also shop on eBay. If you have a Frys store near you, it is far better than Best Buy. Best Buy is usually the worst buy.

#282911 Does our appearance for Christ make a difference?

Posted by amblivion on 30 November 2011 - 03:15 PM

I try to remember too that what we dress like and our hairstyle often does lump us in with a group. Having long, straggly hair with no bangs in combination with a long skirt, clunky sneakers, and a 20 year old top screams "Church of God" or "Pentecostal"....add a doily and you're Mennonite. NOW...lest anyone be offended...I'm NOT knocking these groups of people! I truly admire and respect their modesty! On the other hand, I don't want people to think I'm Pentecostal or Mennonite (although once or twice someone did associate my skirt with Pentecostal....)

I think its good to have a nice, longer (doesn't have to be super long) feminine conservative hairstyle and nice, modest, conservative but at least a little bit stylish clothing....business casual or whatever..... so that you can look modestly attractive instead of modestly dumpy. People DO judge you by your clothes and your looks. I've seen this in emergency rooms or doctors offices....you get treated MUCH better if you have a bit of makeup and nice dress on than if you drag yourself in with sweat pants and unkept hair (obviously at times in the ER you can't help that...but....).


I had to kind of giggle about the Pentecostal comment. When I worked at Dixie Stampede as a photographer, at first I thought the Pentecostals were IFBs. I soon realized I was wrong and realized the women who wore their hair in a bun, had a skirt on, an out of style shirt, and as you said sneakers were Pentecostals. They had a very distinct look. There is definitely a way to dress that is modestly attractive instead of modestly frumpy.

#282043 [Movie] Courageous (the newest movie from Sherwood Baptist Church)

Posted by amblivion on 14 November 2011 - 10:03 AM

I watched it on Friday with about 12 other men from my church.

It's a very powerful movie, the best one this church had done so far. The message is loud and clear: fathers need to take the roles of responsibility and spiritual leadership in their homes. It hits this from every angle you can think of, from the already good Christian father who realizes that 'good enough isn't good enough' to the guy who abandoned his pregnant girlfriend at 18 and needs to take responsibility for his little girl.

The Christian men in this film are all masculine men. They're cops, they're husbands and fathers, and they have real lives and problems from one end of the spectrum to the other. I appreciate this because Hollywood portrays Christians as wimps. In this movie, they are not.

The only thing I didn't like in the Fireproof movie was the abundance of CCM. If there's any in this movie, I didn't really notice it.

The PG-13 rating is there because some parts of the movie are very intense and deeply emotional. My little Kiera (5 years old) watched a movie in which a horse died and she cried about it for days. Some things kids just can't handle emotionally - that is the reason for the rating here. There is certainly no profanity or indecently dressed women in the movie. There are a couple of very intense action scenes with cops fighting bad guys. They are very well done, but there's no gore or anything gratuitous. The action scenes will grab your heart and hold onto it, because anything could happen and anyone could die in them. This movie is clean, but it is very realistic.

There is a clear cut call to action on the part of fathers, and if you are a father you will not finish the movie without being emotionally impacted and spiritually motivated. A pastor could play this movie in his church and hold an altar call right after it without really having to say anything. If I would have watched this movie in church I would have gone down to the altar to pray during the end credits.


Thanks for the review! My husband and I still want to see this movie. We have watched all of them up to this one. The movie theaters are expensive here though, so we might just have to wait until it comes out on DVD. This way we can own it for the price we would be paying for two tickets. My mom told me that the men at their church want to start a men's Bible study now because of this movie. This is something my dad could not get the men to do before.

#278565 New Burial Method: ‘Liquefaction’

Am I reading this right? They dissolve this tissue in the liquid and then dump it into our water system? I don't care if tests show there is no DNA. That is disgusting.


#276376 My Take: Why evangelicals should stop evangelizing

Posted by amblivion on 05 August 2011 - 12:04 PM

When I used to think of myself as a missionary, I was obsessed with converting Muslims (or anybody for that matter) to what I thought of as “Christianity.” I had a set of doctrinal litmus tests that the potential convert had to pass before I would consider them “in” or one of “us.”



It is sad that he had his idea of Christianity wrong in the first place. When someone first becomes a Christian, we can't expect them to know doctrinal matters. This is what discipleship is for. He even mentions in his article that Jesus said we are to go make disciples. His idea of disciples is way off though. It is sad that he has compromised his beliefs and is leading people straight to their deaths.

#273871 Discussion Topic - Tattoos?

Posted by amblivion on 29 June 2011 - 11:46 PM



One of the major problems with modern Christianity is the desire of so many Christians to determine just how much they can get away with, just how close they can walk to that line where sin begins.

As Christians, our goal should be to stay as far away as we can from that line rather than trying to get as close as possible.

Several verses of Scripture have been put forth giving clear reasons why no Christian should get a tattoo.

Are we seeking to honour Christ or our own desires?


I think we need to be careful in how we apply this. Yes, we shouldn't want to walk right next to the line, but going too far the opposite way leads to people living under their own laws and in bondage rather than freedom. Many times people are so afraid of sinning that they come up with rules and regulations and become judgmental towards those who don't adhere to their "moral law." This is something new either. The Israelites did the same things. They kept adding to the law to ensure that they wouldn't break the law. They were "staying as far away from the line as possible." As Christians we have freedom in Christ. We need to stop putting ourselves into bondage and creating rules and stuffing and twisting Scripture to apply to our "moral law." It isn't about what we think we know; it is about what God thinks and knows.

Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I am only replying to the statement made above and not the whole topic on tattoos.

What I was referring to was the subject of tattoos, not making up rules to live by, we have Scripture for that.


I highly doubt you meant that statement in the context of just tattoos. If that is what you meant, then your statment means that the problem with Christianity today is that Christians want tattoos. You have also made the same comment on a different thread with different words. While Scripture may have rules, it is not a list of do this don't do that. As our relationship with Christ strengthens, we will want to follow Christ and become more like him. In essence Christianity isn't about a set of rules it is about a relationship with Jesus. I could adhere to everything given in Scripture and not have a relationship with Christ whatsoever. Sometimes we also tend to "read into Scripture." We decide that something is morally wrong, and the Bible is going to agree with us. We shouldn't want man made religion but Christ made religion.


#272738 CCM?

Posted by amblivion on 10 June 2011 - 11:25 PM

If you are looking for songs that are newer that are not shallowed and dumbed down, this is one of them anime. I thought I would help prove your point. I will let you all look it up if you want to. But I will post the lyrics since they are so good.

Leeland - Via Dolorosa
Lyrics:

He traded his crown for a crown of thorns
He picked up His cross and laid down His sword
He stumbled down the road bruised and beaten for me
Jesus walked the way of grief
Hallelujah!

[Chorus]
On the via dolorosa!
All my sin was carried away!
And the power of hell was broken
As He gave His life away

He knew it was to come from the very start
But his love for the world beat inside His heart
He climbed the road of suffering to the hill of calvary
Where the saints would be redeemed.
Hallelujah!

[Chorus]
On the via dolorosa!
All my sin was carried away!
And the power of hell was broken
As He gave His life away

Jesus fixed His eyes upon the new horizon
Soon he would arise and the world would be forgiven!
Jesus fixed His eyes upon the new horizon
Soon he would arise and the world would be forgiven!

Hallelujah, Jesus rose again!
On the cross He she'd His blood on Calvary
I'm thankful for the journey of my King!

[Chorus]
On the via dolorosa!
All my sin was carried away!
And the power of hell was broken
As He gave His life away
As He gave His life away

He traded his crown for a crown of thorns

Posted by amblivion on 12 November 2010 - 02:22 PM

Neither Samson nor Deborah were leaders. That wasn't their service to God and they didn't act as such.


I believe rancher's whole point about the church situation is disproving this statement. He is showing how a person judging is in fact a leader. He is right that you keep side stepping his questions. If you expect your points to be answered, then you should start answering other people's points without changing the subject or side stepping questions.


#255105 James the Preacher is back online. Praise the Lord!

Posted by amblivion on 28 September 2010 - 03:43 PM


There has been a lot of overemphasis upon God's love and it does a disservice to tell lost sinners God loves them no matter what they do, as it implies in the minds of many, perhaps most, that since they are loved by God anyway they can keep going in sin and hold to the false teaching many have in their mind that a loving God won't send them to hell.

God loved us enough to provide a way for us to be with Him, yet those who reject the gift of salvation in Christ are condemned. The wrath of God already abides upon the lost and the only way they can know God's love is to be born again in Christ.

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36


So you have stopped loving your son while he is in rebellion and sin?


A person who isn't saved is not one of God's sons.
