#391520 Sermon Supoenaes

Posted by No Nicolaitans on 16 October 2014 - 11:51 AM

Wonder when she'll demand that all the mosque's imams turn over their sermons. 

 

My guess...never.

I was going to join the local procrastinator's club, but figured I'd wait til a later date.

I was going to be perfunctory, but I really didn't care and lost interest.

Sorry to see him go. Sorry to see this site turned over to Calvinists to spin their tales also. Disappointed nobody else cares. Losing good people for those who do nothing but cause confusion.




#389568 Hypocrisy Left And Right

Posted by HappyChristian on 30 September 2014 - 11:57 AM

Something that most people don't understand about checks and balances is that, yes, it is designed to show that no branch of the federal government is more powerful than another...but We the People are to be the enforcers of it - in effect, the actual check and balance to the federal government.  And We the People have not been doing our job. Most especially Christians.  Sad, really, the way we've not been the right kind of stewards of the gift God gave us in this country.

Right in time for Korea's fall harvest holiday, which is akin to our Thanksgiving!

 

Rejoicing with you!!




#384347 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by GraceSaved on 27 August 2014 - 10:49 PM

I didn't end up going to the Tue. night Bible study at their house (I was sick) and I haven't been back to the church. I sent them a couple emails but they haven't responded so I am taking it in a way that I was given a way out, if that makes sense. However, I did visit a church tonight that a friend recommended and guess what they talked about??? Eternal security!!! :-) And in the children's class they are studying on choosing wise words and having them memorize Proverbs 15:1 which we've been currently teaching our kids at home. Coincidence? I don't think so.


#384281 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by weary warrior on 27 August 2014 - 05:39 PM

To answer the OP, and not throw gas on the fire of doctrinal discussion...

 

I was raised in an IFB church by my IFB preacher Dad my whole life, saved at the age of 5 and surrendered to preach at 14. I have been in the ministry for twenty years, many of those years as a missionary, a pastor or an assistant pastor. I tell you this only to define and illustrate that I have been on both sides of the pulpit extensively. Through my experience ... and that's all it is, I would recommend you quietly find a church to fellowship with that agrees with you fully on the fundamentals. And my Sister, may I gently say that continuing to Bible Study with those who you are unable to worship with will not turn out to be...profitable? For either of you. The christian life is hard enough in these last days without you taking on a burden God has neither called nor asked you to carry. A pastor and his wife will believe what they have chosen to believe, and I'm pretty sure God does not call upon you to break down that wall.

 

It is just my experience, not scripture, but my experience has been hard won through many tears and scars. If it helps you, I rejoice.

Oh, i believe the sons of God mentioned in Job were created beings. I just am not convinced they are angels.


#382179 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

I'll be in prayer concerning this, you and your pastor. I've added this to my urgent and continual prayer list.




#382153 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by Standing Firm In Christ on 14 August 2014 - 12:02 PM

I fear for such church assemblies. They serve and worship a god of empty promises, a god whose word is not to be trusted.


#382150 Agreement/disagreement With The Pastor

Posted by GraceSaved on 14 August 2014 - 11:32 AM

P.S. I would like to reiterate my above statement. My goal is not to teach anyone but to discuss and determine in my own mind what I believe scripture has to say on this topic. Also, I do not wish, at anytime, for myself or my children to be taught otherwise if this topic comes up in some later sermon.


#381424 John Calvin Had It All Wrong

Posted by mkrishna on 08 August 2014 - 12:41 PM

Also, the number of popular teachers in a certain theology does not make it true. There are a number of popular preachers who hold to Calvinism, and people basically get the theology by listening to them or reading their books, not from the Bible. We need to throw out our creeds and have the Bible as the ONLY authority.




#381403 John Calvin Had It All Wrong

Posted by DaveW on 08 August 2014 - 03:54 AM

The discussion was about the false doctrines, not the bits you might get right.
Even the Catholics get some doctrines right.

If you want a competition then you have come to the wrong place.

Especially right now as my son just came back from a definitely non-calvinist trip where far more than one was saved.

That in itself doesn't prove a doctrine right or wrong.

If you actually wanted people to rejoice over it, you would have put it in the soul winning section........

By putting it here, you are using it as propaganda. ......

But, praise God if he did get saved. If he did it was because of the preaching of the Gospel, not the preaching of Calvinism.


#380844 Forgive Yourself

Posted by DaveW on 01 August 2014 - 07:25 PM

I saw the opposite. My father played sometimes for our church, then we got a progression of very good pianists and my Dad was sidestepped.
A few years later we ran out of excellent pianists and instead of asking my dad to return to the piano, a young lady was asked to play. She was not very good at playing hymns although she was not a bad pianist.
A few people were offended for my Dad but he didn't seem to care.
She now is a wonderful servant in another church, having been their principle pianist and now very good hymn player for many years.
My dad is happy serving in other ways.

Sometimes it is important for someone other than the "best" person to do a ministry......
