#377210 Do You Know Any White Person Named Jesus?

Here is an interesting article on the ''Jesus/Joshua'' subject.




#376894 Do You Know Any White Person Named Jesus?

Posted by heartstrings on 16 June 2014 - 10:41 AM

When our first son was born, I named him Joshua and a lady at our church, upon hearing this, said "you named him the same as Jesus in the OT". I didn't argue with her but I was  thinking "no, I named him Joshua". If the Lord had wanted the King James translators to call the OT person "Jesus", or the Lord, "Joshua".  I believe it would be in there . No, I don't believe it's right to name your kid "Jesus", I don't care it you do pronounce it 'Hay soos". I think the highly exalted "name which is above every name" is holy and belongs to the King of Glory.

 

Phil;ippians 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;




#376622 Southern Baptists Unanimously Affirm Biblical Sexuality, Oppose ‘Transgenderism’

One of the weaknesses within the SBC is it's inability to get member churches to comply with the stated positions of the SBC. There is also a problem in dealing with churches which reach a point they should be ejected from the SBC.

 

This is one of the areas the SBC should attempt to address and correct, at least to the point where they establish a set of foundational principles that must be adhered to by churches within the SBC and if a member church violates one (or more) of those foundational principles they should receive a personal visit from the president and a couple others (or a small group established to deal with such) which can speak to the leader(s) of the violating church and attempt to help them see biblical reason and make correction. If the church refuses to restore biblical correctness in line with the foundational principles they should be quickly expelled.Our

That's because individual SBC's are really autonomous.

Then it would be more like organized religion...more like Catholicism.

 Our daughter cooks, makes jewelry, tends to her flower garden,  makes 'scrapbooks', wears dresses, goes to the beauty parlour, plays with babies, wears ear rings, and acts like a lady. Both of our boys love to bowhunt, gun-hunt, bowfish, frog gig, alligator hunt, skin snakes, drive pickup trucks, operate power tools, cut wood, and do the 'man stuff'...and they wear britches but no ear rings ***  Kids need a mama to learn the girly stuff and daddy to teach the man stuff. And when you have a sissy dad who won't lead (or who isn't around) or a mom who 'wears the britches', it's a recipe for trouble any way you look at it.

 

***not saying those are the only 'man things' but you know what I mean.




#376335 Regeneration And Believing.

Posted by heartstrings on 11 June 2014 - 11:19 AM

This is one they might misrepresent, but I'm not sure; I have seen them quote it before.

 

Jeremiah 1:4Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

5Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

 

Of course, careful reading will show that's not what it's saying at all.




#376329 Whats for Supper...

Posted by heartstrings on 11 June 2014 - 10:54 AM

Hey grandpa...what's fer supper?

 

Sauteed chicken

Fryin' in the pan

Just a li'l pepper

Shook from a can

Sliced up purdy

A work of art

And corn on the cob

Fresh from Walmart

 

yuuuum yuuuuum

 Also, If I was a preacher, I would not want to be called "reverend" either. God's name is "reverend", not ours.

 

He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. Psalm 111:9




#376100 Cop Bashing

Posted by heartstrings on 09 June 2014 - 03:28 PM

 

In 1969, my family lost a member who was a police officer in Illinois. Murdered. He was shot multiple times while investigating a burglary. Yes,I am biased in favor of LEOs.

The vast majority are good, rational people serving their communities. Of course, there are numb-nuts who ought not be trusted with any semblance of power let alone a loaded weapon.

Do not judge the whole based on a few.

...nobody said they were; most i've met, were fine, but the the bad ones make one suspicious just the same.




#375497 We Refuse To Be Enemies - 1500 Fruit Trees Destroyed

Posted by heartstrings on 05 June 2014 - 01:25 PM

I left a church, three years ago, where the pastor had been reciting, almost word for word, the sermons of John Piper, When I confronted him, he scolded me, accusing me of accusing him of 'stealing sermons' when that wasn't my contention at all , He denied being Calvinist while defending Piper, but I read on his blog later where he admitted delving into Calvinism. Our church had a mentality that speaking against or even disagreeing with, a pastor was 'touching God's anointed" but falsely accusing a layman was OK. So, the question I would have, as a member of an actual church, not just an internet forum, is: Would my church permit someone like Covenanter, Invicta, or Genevan to preach behind it's pulpit or teach a Sunday School class?

Selective prophecies ! They did receive the land, & defiled it as Scripture records.

 

How about Gen. 12:3 or Micah 2:1-7 or Hosea 6:6 quoted by the Lord in Mat. 9:13 Mark 12:9 ????

 

Have the commandments been repealed in Israel, so that stealing is now OK?  Have the rulers of Israel now recognised their Messiah, & are they beginning to implement Isa. 11:9-10 ? Is the Gospel now closed to the Gentiles? Has the middle wall of partition been re-erected? Eph. 2:13-22  The continuing practise of injustice will not endear them them to the LORD, nor is it evidence of the LORD's favour.

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 1:3

 

Covenanter, I was saved back on May 11, 1986 but have sinned a good many times since then. You have too. God Almighty made a covenant with his people Israel as a BLESSING to all of us; Jew and Gentile alike, and He has not forsaken them. Remember the 'six day war'? I believe God did that too.....and I read something in my KJB about the mighty King of Glory, the Lord of hosts, the Lord Jesus wiping out all those who come to destroy Israel. God is not finished with them. The land of Israel, as defined in the Word of God, still belongs to them 'forever', I believe the Bible says.

Deuteronomy 20:19 forbids destroying fruit trees as an act of war. 

Friend, if a nation destroys their own trees, how can it be an "act of war"?




#375386 Dorightchristians - Jack Schaap Appeals Case?

Posted by heartstrings on 04 June 2014 - 09:59 PM

A middle aged man "pursued aggressively"  by a kid.......really? His fault regardless.

 

If you're in, say, a Sunday School room alone, and a woman or girl walks in...WALK OUT IMMEDIATELY ....simple. There's no chance for temptation or false accusation.




#375275 Welcome To Florida...

Posted by heartstrings on 04 June 2014 - 08:25 AM

Hated my time in Fla but Pensacola is not a good representation of Fla (nor is Miami, Orlando, Tampa, etc). To visit the Real Fla go to Two Egg, Chipley, Jay, Perry, Walnut Hill, Ebro, Graceville, etc.

 We live near Wausau but my business/office is near Chipley and we have a Chipley address. I sometimes sell my sheep at Graceville and my MIL lives near Jay. A really big "city" for us is Panama City or Dothan, AL. We are from some of the original "Florida Crackers". My great great great grandpa fought for the confederacy and lost two of his three sons in the war. One died in battle at Chickamauga and the other died in a prison camp. When the  war was over, my 3xgreat grandpa became a Baptist preacher. The story is told that my 2x great grandpa Bauldin, the only son he had left, hid in a well to avoid conscription; he was said to be14 at the time. They have  Grandpa Bauldin's log house at a museum in Panama City....

The best part about Florida is the road that leads north

 

 

If only a few million more Yankees had the same sentiment. :bleh:
