Posted by irishman on 23 July 2014 - 01:11 PM

I would lkke to thank all who have prayed for me for a liver transplant.  The Lord miraculously provide a liver for me, and I am doing well.  I am out of the woods yet, completely, and now have a limited lifestyle, but thank God, I am still kicking!




#352249 The Tower Of Babel

Posted by irishman on 03 December 2013 - 10:49 AM

Imust be color blind, but I see people as people, and all need the same Savior.

 

With that said, I don't know any more than anyone else whether the races originated at Babel, but it sounds reasonable to me.  The Bible makes it clear that God confounded the languages to separate them (so much for unions!) but it would take years for them to discover who spoke one language or another with so many people obviously present.  The color and facial features would make it much easier to identify with those of like tongue.  Just my thoughts on the matter. (I may not be available for replies, so have at it!)




#348957 Goodbye

Posted by irishman on 06 November 2013 - 02:26 PM

I would like to thank Bro. Matt for making this forum, I know it must have been a pain at times.  I will be leaving because of my health, my MELD score went to 16, (15 puts me on the transplant list), and I have to be available 24/7 for calls.  That means my internet has to go (dial-up) unless we decide to get high speed, which isn't likely.

 

Anyway, I apologize to anyone that I may have offended, and I do pray for everyone on the forum.  It was never my intention at first to offend anyone, but I did get in the flesh a few times. 

 

Again, thank you Bro. Matt, you have been a blessing to me; thank you for allowing me to post on your forum, I have enjoyed the experience very much, and sincerely hope that someone was helped through it--I know I was!

 

I will continue to pray for all of you in general, as the Lord lays it on my heart.

Keep the faith, Jesus is coming again.

In Christs service,

Martin Dunn aka Irishman.




#348559 Baptist Fundamentalism And Kjvo

Posted by irishman on 04 November 2013 - 07:17 AM

I can hardly believe some of the posts that BAPTISTS are posting here!  Modernism has taken hold, and the basic (fundamental) doctrines of the Baptists has been influenced by the error of modern thinking.

 

The KJV was good enough, even some people who were of "limited education" were saved through the use of the KJB.  It is said to be written on a fourth grade level, but I would say perhaps that is a bit of an exaggeration; maybe 6th or 7th grade!

 

I believe we show our ignorance when we demand an "easier" translation (which is not realy easier to understand, but easier to swallow!)

 

Yes, I believe it was, and is, a necessary fundamental truth.  Remember, a man came up with the "five fundamentals" of the faith (or seven, or whatever) and since then it seems to have been written in stone.  Did anyone ever realize that it could have been his opinion?  Opinions differ on most things anyway, so we need to decide where we stand (scripturally as well as "sensibly") and stand there.




#348144 Please Pray

Posted by irishman on 31 October 2013 - 03:43 AM

It seems that Auburn isn't too popular here, but let's remember that we, as Christians, accept one another even as the Lord accepts us.  I speak of myself also, for I sometimes get caught up in the flesh with a few on this forum, but I must remember, they also put up with me!




#347883 The Principle Of Law

Posted by irishman on 29 October 2013 - 05:47 AM

Rom. 2:14 “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:”


What sort of principles are we to glean from the Law of God?

Honoring God
Honesty
Integrity
Fair Trade (business)
Equity (“Golden rule“)
Correct worship
Positional authority
God-given authority
Virtue
Judgment
Repentance
Separation
Obedience
Truth
Forgiveness
Responsibility
Faith

Giving

Loving (proper)

and more

What makes it so different from the New Testament Law (in principle)?  The Law of Christ?

Rom. 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

       Eternal life

The major goal of the law?

Rom 8:4  “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

 




#347448 Prayers For My Family

Posted by irishman on 25 October 2013 - 05:35 AM

I will be in prayer for all involved.  It is not my business to condemn any of them, nor to praise them, God will sort things out His way.

Sorry for you too, that you are caught in the middle of all this.




#347402 Why Not Stick With The Original Melody? Huh?

Posted by irishman on 24 October 2013 - 06:07 PM

Music can be a powerful force.  I know a man that played in a rock band before he got saved.  He said that when the night wore on, and they were getting tired, they could cause a fight by stepping up the tempo, then they got to leave early!  There is a certain beat to rock music that is both sensual and confusing to the senses, and a "good" musician can tell the difference.  I forget what it's called, but they have a name for that type of beat. (seems like it was "discordance" or something like that.)  This was stright from the horses mouth so to speak. 




#347310 Question Of The The Day....

Posted by irishman on 23 October 2013 - 04:04 PM

I suppose it remains a question, but wasn't the flood a symbol of the eternal judgment of God, and not merely physical death? 

 

Babies are born with a sin nature (the will to sin) and will sin from their mothers womb (potentially).  If sin is accounted for at the new born level isn't judgment also demanded?

 

Not wishing to argue the point, in fact I hope there is an "age of accountability", but the Bible is not clear on it.




#347279 Way Of Life - Wikileaks And The Latter Days

Posted by irishman on 23 October 2013 - 03:54 AM

One must be careful when interpreting prophecy, it is "ify" at best.

 

We look back at history to interpret prophecy, when the actual prophecy looked forward to it; in other words, we have a different viewpoint.  In time all will be revealed.




#347277 Homeless Blues

Posted by irishman on 23 October 2013 - 03:19 AM

I am not homeless myself, I have a happy home far beyond the clouds; a mansion, if you will accept it, awaits you too if you are saved.  It is just waiting for you.

 

Say "goodbye" to this old world,

Look up to the sky;

One day heaven will open up,

and receive you on high. 

 

Woe to life on this old earth,

full of sin and shame;

Look to heaven's glory land,

and  receive a brand new name.




#347010 A Medley Of Praise

Posted by irishman on 21 October 2013 - 05:59 AM

“Because He lives”…
“I can face tomorrow;”
“I’m a child of the King,”
“I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold,”
And “All that thrills my soul is Jesus.”
I have that “Amazing Grace;”

“Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified;
Knowing not it was for me He died at Calvary.”
Now my soul doeth say,
“Beulah Land, sweet Beulah land,
As on thy solid highest mount I stand:”

“This is my story, This is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.”
My “Burdens are lifted at Calvary, Calvary, Calvary…”
“Search  me O God, and know my heart today”
“Day by day, and with each passing moment
Strength I find to meet my trials here;”
Now my soul doeth plead, “Draw me nearer,
Nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where thou hast died;”

“Faith is the victory…that overcomes the world.”
Now “Down in the valley with my Savior I would go”
“Some through the waters,
Some through the flood; some through the fire,
But all through the blood.”  “God leads His dear children along;”
“His grace is greater than all our sins.”
“He hideth my soul in the cleft of the Rock,”
And “He is able to deliver thee.”

“I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today;
I know that He is risen whatever men may say;”
“He touched me! He touched me! And oh the joy
That floods my soul…He touched me
And made me whole.” Then “Heaven came down
And glory filled my soul. “Lord lift me up,
And let me stand, by faith on heavens table land”
I can truly say, “It is well with my soul”.

“I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And He watches over me”
“Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee;
How great thou art! how great thou art!”
“I must tell Jesus all of my trials;
I cannot bear my burdens alone:”
“I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord…
I need thee, oh I need thee, every hour I need thee
Oh bless me now my Savior, I come to thee.”

“He walks with me, and he talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;”
And “In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore”
“Jesus is the sweetest name I know,”
“I am so glad that Jesus loves me.”
I seek now, “Just a closer walk with thee
“Daily walking close to thee, let it be,
Dear Lord, let it be”nd
“in the swet by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore”

So, “Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid,
Your heart does the Spirit control?”
If so, “It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.”
And “What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;” and we
Can say “I was sinking deep in sin,
far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within,
sinking to rise no more, But the Master of the sea,
heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.”

There’s “Nothing between my soul and the Savior,
So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor -
keep the  way clear! Let nothing between.”
“For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”
Now, “There is a Name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest Name on earth.”
 




#346472 Way Of Life - Christian Parents Are Losing Their Children

Posted by irishman on 15 October 2013 - 05:05 AM

Consider this:

When we first moved to this neighborhood, I (of course) didn't know anyone around here, but God knew.  He knew the influence that my kids would receive from neighborhood kids; He knew those that I would forbid my kids to run with, and those that they were allowed to run with; He knew all about it, and it is possible (at least I believe) that we are where were supposed to be, for one reason or another.

 

I figure, if I follow the Bible and make it first in my life, He will work out that which I have little or no control over.  I still live by that today, and rely on the grace of God to do the rest.  I have made enough mistakes to ruin a dozen kids, but glory to God, He interceded, and my kids turned out well (so far!).  I say it to His glory, and none of mine.




#346424 Way Of Life - Christian Parents Are Losing Their Children

Posted by irishman on 14 October 2013 - 02:12 PM

And yet there are Christian parents who don't do all of those things, who work to rear their children in the Lord, who pray and cry to the Lord for their children...and still lose them.  It isn't always about the parenting..

Right HC, many people, on the other hand, compliment a pastor (or anyone) when their children turn out all right.  They say the parents were good parents, and ignore the fact that it is a according to the grace of God.
