Chrisgp, Gay has admitted that she is a pot smoker. That offenseâsorceryâalso carries the death penalty in scripture. I am by no means opposed to the death penalty, and I honestly believe it is more humane than a life sentence without parole. The question is, where do we draw the line?
The Waldenses baptized by immersion prior to the Reformation. âEquivocationâ is a fine word when used correctly, which in your post, Neil, it was not. The nearest equivalent idiomatic expression would be âbeating around the bush.â I have a ton of faults, but beating around the bush generally isnât one of them.
There were congregations of Christians clinging to Bible doctrine long before the Reformation. They may not have been Baptist, but they were certainly Baptistic. If Jesus was baptized by a Baptist preacher, I donât know how anyone can âfollowâ Him in baptism by being sprinkled by a Presbyterian.
Jim, this is one of the rare occasions when you and I are in full agreement. Honesty would indeed be a fresh change in the capital. Pelosi, Schumer, Mueller, Schiff, Nadler and the other co-conspirators who are trying to remove electoral power from the people have been lying way too long and need to be stopped.
Jim, it took me a while, but I finally found out who Dr. Rugh is. Heâs a podiatrist in Snailburg, Kansas, who gives lollipops to his juvenile patients and Cheetos to the adults. Not sure what his connection to theology is, but hey, itâs a free country and everyone has a right to an opinion. One of his opinions seems to be that parachurch organizations have no place in Christianity, and of course you agree, Jim, or you wouldnât have quoted him. So get off of this forum sponsored by a parachurch organization!

Not everyone on here could sing those old songs with us, Dolores. For instance, you and I might sing âJesus loves the little children, all the children of the world! Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world!â However, the adherents of what some quite strangely call the âdoctrines of graceâ would say, âJesus hates the little children, all the ones that arenât elect! In His eyes theyâre merely snails, made by Him to burn in Hell. Youâre an ijit if you say that ainât correct!â
Our church operates a âfleetâ of two or three buses bringing in poor kids for Sunday School and church. Occasionally one of the kids gets saved. One man who got saved as a âbus kidâ at our church over 25 years ago is now a preacher and the director of our bus ministry. If preaching the gospel is not a biblical basis for a churchâs existence, what is?
The âcost of giving birthâ for most people throughout history has been negligible, and only skyrocketed when we decided that moms needed to be admitted to the hospital to have a baby. The cost of sin (Romans 6:23) on the other hand has always remained the same.
