#384272 Adrian Rogers - Sermon - Don't Be A Disgrace To Grace

Posted by HappyChristian on Today, 04:43 PM

And so is this...

Ok

At the 43.03 mark he says "if you will pray a prayer like that and mean it......."

 

First of all he said "prayer" and he gave the stipulation that you must "mean it".   He's not telling anyone to say certain words because he says a prayer "Like that" . He is just showing you how to come to God and he's showing you the issues to be dealt with in coming to God and I noticed he mentioned these three things... "I'm a sinner" "I'm lost" "Jesus you died to save me" Those three issues are the three that the Holy Spirit deals with the heart: sin, righteousness, and judgement.

 

Sin.......I'm a low down wicked sinner

Righteousness......God is Love and Holy and righteous and he displayed all of that in Jesus and on Calvary.

Judgement.....I'm on my way to Hell for all eternity and I deserve it.

To HappyChristian, yes I knew Cathie.  She was working Admissions when I went there.  She is a neat lady and still active on Facebook with the ABC Alumni.  I live in Charleston.  When I was in Child Evangelism Fellowship our summer camp was near Clarksburg.  We go through that area every month because hubby drills in Kingwood at Camp Dawson.

 

I would like to join the ladies forum, I guess I need to contact you about that :)

 

To Li Bai Jia, I did see that spider on the other thread and it was quite disturbing.  Don't care too much for creepy crawlies.

Too neat!  She was the ladies' dorm super when I went to Marietta Bible College. We became good friends, but lost contact (as people do so often).   

 

Password to the ladies' forum coming right up.  :clapping:

We're working on the ladies' forum and eventually it will be a hopping place - including theology, recipes, parties, and all kinds of stuff.  :thumb:

Welcome aboard, trapperhoney!  We're always glad to welcome folk - and I'm always glad to see more ladies come on board!   :icon_smile:

 

My dad was from WV - the Clarksburg area.  In your profile, you said you went to ABC - did you by chance know Cathy Canary?

Ken Blue was the pastor who baptized me.  Way back in the day.  :icon_smile:

I don't blame you at all.  There is a Walgreen's in the same area, as well as KMart and a grocery store.  There are also a few gas stations.  You may have to start with fast food just to get some money coming in, but I'm sure eventually something else will open up.  




#383740 Wow, God Is Really Serious About This

Let's not turn this thread into a tithing debate or a debate on law vs. grace, folks.  Back to topic. Thanks.

Jordan, I just heard that Burger King is hiring now, too...it's also within walking distance.




#383550 <> God <>

Well, well...things sure do get interesting around here sometimes. I'm thinking it's time to close this very strange thread.

Before I do, though I will say that the teaching that baptism is necessary for salvation is unscriptural. The Bible clearly explains what it is and why it is...to add it to salvation makes eph. 2: 8-10 a lie. We would be wise to let scripture form our beliefs rather than allowing our beliefs to color scripture.


#383144 Wow, God Is Really Serious About This

Happy, sarcasm is not necessary and it is a belittling comment.

 

 

who does the brother of John the beloved say he is writing too?

 

Jas 1:1 ΒΆ James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes

For starters, my comment was not sarcasm. It was an observation.  And it wasn't belittling.  Stop trying to moderate the forum, AVBB.  Okay? 

 

You know, I can read. I know that the book was originally written to the 12 tribes. But you are fooling yourself if you believe that it doesn't apply to us.  It does, whether you or anyone else likes it or not.  As do the gospels and the OT.  Whether it's for instruction, pictorial instruction, parable, principle, command, etc.

 

I'm kinda tired of folks who try to parse scripture and tell us what applies to our lives as Christians and what doesn't.  God's Word is God's Word and everything within it has something to teach us.  Now, if you think that's belittling, that's up to you. I'm thinking mayhap God thinks some folks - some on this forum even - belittle His Word.

Ban 2b for resisting Rosie's mothering.

#382947 Pet Peeves

Posted by HappyChristian on 21 August 2014 - 03:11 PM

heheheh. I know they are full of life.  But that's all part of the challenge. We did have a beagle when I was quite young.  And he was really well behaved for us.  But we did have a big fenced-in yard. 

 

AVBB - that is too bad!  

 

A peeve I have about pets is that they can be so expensive to buy.  Bleeding heart ads talk about animals needing good homes, but it costs almost as much to buy one as it does to keep it in dog food for a number of years.




#382925 Why Only Ladies?

Posted by HappyChristian on 21 August 2014 - 11:40 AM

Nah - we're talking about you men.  :bleh:

 

But,yes, even.  Because now you guys have a private place and so do the ladies. Whether folks choose to use them or not is up to each member. :clapping:

Posted by HappyChristian on 20 August 2014 - 09:49 PM

HC, I grew up always having a beagle and lab, outdoors only. Beagle pups are the cutest! But what puppy isn't! I hope you get your puppy too!


We had labs when our son was growing up. Shepherds (part doberman) when I was young. There's just something about a beagle...my mom wants mr to bring my beagle (if I get one) to her house due to one of her pet peeves: rabbits everywhere. :-D
