And it logically follows, therefore, John, that when you say that none of the different end times views currently being put forth do represent a false means of salvation, as you did in post 129, and then others indicate that they disagree with you, then they must be saying that one needs to have the correct end-times view to be saved.

I have heard a few Christians over the years say that if one didn't have the "right" (meaning whatever view they held to) view regarding the end times, that was a sign they weren't saved.

It's really sad each time there is a celebrity death to see how many Christians make excuses for their sinful lives and either outright declare they are in heaven now or make the same "God probably reached out to them at the last minute and they were saved so they are in heaven" proclamation they make time and again.

Copy/paste doesn't work with IE but it will work with Firefox.

 

Bro Matt said sometime back that eventually an update should fix that.

You can compete with the big box stores even if you have higher prices if you will make reasonable accommodations for your customers.  There is a local owned family pharmacy less than 1 block from a Walmart.  When Walmart was built (15 years ago) everyone was sure that would be instant doom for this pharmacy since they could not compete price wise.   Solution, they deliver, and guarantee delivery within 45 minutes!   They not only survive, but the owner says his business has increased 25% since the opening of Walmart and the start of this policy.

There is a family owned pharmacy in a town not far from here that now has a branch in a room at our local clinic. They are doing a very good business because it's convenient to order medicines locally and they offer delivery. That's much better than having to make a 40-60 mile round trip to get medicine.

 

The few truly local businesses (I don't count those where a local person has a national franchise) stay in business by filling a niche, a specialty and/or offering some convenience factor.

Genesis 27:31

 

And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.
