#355968 Which Tax Software Would You Recommend?

Posted by PreacherE on 04 January 2014 - 11:08 PM

I have used Turbo Tax every year I've had to file except for two years where I lived in different states.  Those years I had them prepared by a tax professional.  I find Turbo Tax is very easy to use and walks you through step-by-step of entering in your information including things you might not have thought of on your own.




#300621 Independent Baptist Music Wars

Posted by PreacherE on 27 June 2012 - 10:30 PM

It is sad to see a church head down this direction of compromising with the world and allowing CCM to get a foothold in its services. I know what these families are going through as well in taking a stand and then being blasted from the pulpit for refusing to compromise. I stepped down from a position as choir director because of the direction that the choir/special music was going. We have had people attempting to bring Christian Rock into the church to sing as specials. Keep in mind that our church has always stood against CCM for as long as I have been there, but now there is a certain group within the church that is starting to slowly bring this type of compromise into the church. I have taken a stand both publicly outside of the church against such compromise, I have preached against CCM and worldly compromise from our church's pulpit, and I have spoken to the pastor in private about it beginning to rear its head in the church. Instead of preaching against this type of music the pastor has chosen to make certain comments and digs from the pulpit against those who would take a stand against it. This same group that is attempting to bring CCM into the church and are openly listening to such are also beginning to bring in the modern Bible versions (especially The Message) and liberal preachers (James MacDonald, Tony Evans, T.D. Jakes, Greg Laurie, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, et. al.).

More than anything it hurts to watch a church which you have given your life and heart to for several years follow this path of compromise. It hurts knowing that you are the only one taking a public stand against this compromise and that the stand one has taken has caused all those who were once close friends to leave you.


If there is one thing I will preach against all my life, by the grace of God, it will be worldly compromise and the damage it will do to a Christian and a Church.

In Christ,
