#392458 Movie Review - Fireproof

Posted by DaveW on Yesterday, 02:13 AM

I do like the movies they have done generally - I have a few issues, but they can be called genuinely Christian movies, as distinct from the rubbish the world labels as such.
Most of them present a pretty good salvation message at some stage.

#392456 "a Nice Bible Name"?

Posted by DaveW on Yesterday, 01:22 AM


This is a condescending reaction to a legitimate complaint.

I for one was willing to assume it was a genuine mistake, which is why I explained it plainly.

But this is silly and makes you look like a troublemaker.

I have done this here so as not to pollute your babies thread, which appears to be a genuine post.

But how about you find a reasonable, normal username?

Pork sword is a common slang term for penis in Australia - and apparently in the UK.
It appears that it may not be in the US.

It is such a common term here that I am amazed it is not in the US.
I am not surprised in light of this that he is offended and suspecting doubtful motives.

#392156 Paul Chappell - The Challenge Of Christmas Curriculum

Posted by DaveW on 25 October 2014 - 05:54 PM

I've heard preachers that were preaching from the gospels who will skip over the "Christmas account" since they preach that for Christmas.


Would it really hurt to hear such preaching more than once a year? Wouldn't it perhaps be nice to hear that preached upon outside the context of it being preached just because it's the Christmas season?


If I am preaching a series, I will sometimes take a break from the series for a special time - church anniversary Sunday, or missions month, or something like that, but I would never miss a section of a book I was preaching through for any reason.


And what you mention there John just seems unbelievable - except that I can believe it with some preachers I have known and heard of....

I was asked if ignorance is worse than apathy, or is it the other way round.
I discovered that I neither know nor care.....

What an opportunity though!
Someone will have to read an examine all those sermons.......

#391321 Are You Surprised About This?

Posted by DaveW on 14 October 2014 - 04:48 PM

So, if it is appointed unto man once to die...
Is he still alive? :hide:

I have often wondered about that......
We are not told if he lived a normal life from then on till a normal death, or what?
Speculation that he was taken up after the Lord was resurrected? But absolutely no Bible about it that I have found....
Or else the "appointed unto men" is a general principle not a strict unbreakable rule?

We may know when we get to be with the Lord.
Or we might just be too busy being awestruck at the greatness of God to worry about petty unimportant matters. ;)

Joh 12:9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

Yeah, Lazarus spoke with many people afterwards.
We don't know about these others, but Lazarus remained very much alive after the event.
What a testimony for the Lord!
So much so that the Pharisees wanted to blot him out for it.

Actually I was just playing with LuAnne and getting this out for the visiters and lurkers to see.

Ok then, harmless fun.
All good, just confused me.
How can anyone not love that verse? ;)

#391180 Are You Surprised About This?

Posted by DaveW on 13 October 2014 - 07:15 PM

Do you have a 'thought' on what the importance is in telling this verse to us?

It is another proof of the deity of Christ, but apart from the very simple facts given there is no explanation.
We are not even told if they were in glorified bodies or somehow otherwise reconstituted natural bodies (or even corrupted natural bodies - ewwwww!)

I have heard people speculate but that can be dangerous.
Is this part of Eph 4:8,9?
It is possible but by no means certain.

#390992 Understanding Hebrews -2

Posted by DaveW on 12 October 2014 - 11:48 PM

My point to Invicta was always that the basic idea of dispensationalism - a difference in the way God interacts with men - has been seen historically prior to Darby or Scofield.
These two men were certainly the ones who formulated the specifics, but the general thesis of divisions of administration was well known prior to their works.

His basic argument is that it is wrong because Darby invented it.

My argument is that he is lying because he knows that is simply not the case.

Dispensationalism as has been promoted on this site by some (so called right dividers) is a vile misrepresentation of God's Word - but not because of some association with Darby - because it is unbiblical.

Lying about its origin makes no difference as to its veracity.

Let's for now ignore that associated doctrines of the men on the list.
They each divided God's interaction with men according to what many call dispensations today.

For instance Irenaeus I believe had four divisions, others of that list has six, I believe Scofield promotes seven???, and I assume Darby did, since Scofield apparently leaned heavily on Darby.

The number and precise divisions are unimportant - the basic idea of divisions was taught by men as far back as 100 - 200 AD.

I like 4wding. Don't do much of it because, well, I have more important things to do. ;)

But it always amazes me when they close an area to 4wds because idiots race around and tear it up.

Then people like me won't go in because it is illegal, but the ones who caused the problem in the first place still do.
And in fact the problem increases because there is no one there to see these guys tear the place up.
And what is the point of preserving it for No one to see and enjoy?
Far better to do courage people to enjoy it and they might be inclined to look after it so they can keep enjoying it.

But it is easier to put up a gate with a lock.......

We have a situation here in Western Australia where we used to go for a drive to the point on our coast where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean.
You could walk right down to it on the rocks and look left onto the Southern and right onto the Indian.
Now I know it is an arbitrary line made by men, and that it is imaginary, but a few months ago we took our family down to that point, where we were met by a security fence closing off the entire point.
You can still get in and have a look, but you have to pay the tourism council......

This land ain't ours here either......

Done, but to no avail.

You seem to be more intent on stopping me from pointing out false teaching than worrying about that false teaching.

Plenty of other false teachers have been banned for trying to lead studies where they push their false doctrine.
He should not be able to lead such a study.
Tame or not, it is false teaching that we all know he holds to, and he us leading this study with the purpose of pushing that false position.
