#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,

#249221 Dealing with rejectors.

I'm usually a patient man. Those on this board who know me know that I do not get drawn into the different arguments that rage on from time to time. However, I must ask the moderators, if any are following this thread, why someone who is promoting such heresy is allowed to continue in posting to what is supposed to be an Independent, Fundamental, KJV, Baptist message board. This "troll" as some have stated is doing nothing but stirring up strife and to my knowledge has not started one post which would be edifying to those reading it. I could understand if it was someone who was willing to learn the truth, but this man refuses to defend himself against Bible verses which obviously tear his pet theory apart.

Again, I know I usually do not get drawn into these, but..........Enough is Enough.

That's just my :twocents: . Take it or leave it.

#249133 Obama made Kenya to sin

Kenya Gives Obama Abortion, Islamic Courts

I Kings 14:16 'And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, and who made Israel to sin.'

This is what Jeroboam became known for throughout the Bible. No less then 21 times in the Books of I and II Kings does it mention the fact that Jeroboam sinned and made Israel to sin as well. This became his epithet and reputation throughout the nation of Israel. It seems that today we have a modern day Jeroboam running the United States. Not only is he engaging in sin and promoting it within our own borders, but he is even pushing for it to be allowed within other countries as well.

Kenya voted yesterday, August 4, 2010, on a major consititutional referendum which would change large portions of their consititution. Among those changes was a slack in the laws against abortion making it legitimate in the country. Another major change was the addition of Kadhi Courts, which hold to Islamic Shariah law, into their judicial system. The referendum was passed by a large majority with 66% of the nation voting in favor of. However, Kenyans were not the only ones who had an interest in the vote. Obama had $23 million dollars of tax-payer's money sent to more than 60 different groups in Kenya who were campaigning in favor of the referendum. Did you get that? He sent tax-payer's money, OUR money, to another country to help fund abortion and Islam and he did this despite congressional protests from numerous lawmakers. According to Kenyan sources Obama promised the Kenyan government that if the referendum passed it would allow the White House to send millions more in additional government aid.

It is sad enough that the killing of babies has been approved by our own government for close to 40 years, but now we have a president who is trying to push for the murder of children in other countries as well. Obama apparently is not content to take just this country down into Hell. He is moving to take others with him there as well. How sad that this nation which was founded by godly men who believed the Word of God has now turned its back on God and the Bible.

Psalm 9:17 'The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.'

Obama is truly a modern day Jeroboam. He is not content to live in sin himself, but he wishes to bring everyone else down to his level as well. We should pray all the more earnestly for our leaders and those in authority. Pray for their salvation and godly wisdom in their decisions.

In Christ,
