    Scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page I found a link that looked strange. So I clicked, and it was strange. God's get rich quick plan discovered in the bible by athiests. I'm not kidding.

    Is that the link listed down on the bottom of this page?? That's so weird. There's also some weird things at the top of the page too. There was something about going to a website to watch someone pray for you and light a candle. Weird!

    Boy am I dumb......here all the time I thought it was, Luk 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

    That's the same thing I thought when I read KJVkids post above you. Some people just want God for what He can give them. Prosperity gospel wants a god they can use, not a God that can use them.

    If this is bad, why is it on the baptist board? Isn't it being here like endorsing it? I mean there wouldn't be an ad for abortion clinics, or tatto artists so why this ad for getting what you want from God, using God for your own purposes? Is all one has to do is tack the word 'christian' on it and you buy advertisment here?

    "Jumping to conclusions" -- very areobatic exercise!
    It is the only exercise I can do with bum knees :(

    I had a test-off between Benny Hinn & Rod Parsley:

    1. Hinn giggles before he touches the one to be
    'slain by the spirit' - they know that is a signal to
    fall backwards.

    2. Parsley pushes - they know that is a signal
    to fall backwards.

    So yes, I guess I'm a Hinn fan, but I came out of
    the closet in 2003.

    My only complaint: the Nehru Jacket.

    I think he was being sarcastic, not serious about that being his opinion.

    Some of the ads are Google "Smart Ads". They pick up words used on the page you're looking at. Some strange things do pop up.
    You can report the ad to a Mod, and it will be blocked.

    Gayla, it is not a google ad. Scroll down to the bottom of this page or any page on the BB and it'sr ight there next to christian boarding schools and mp3 preaching, and it says buy a text link, and has a link to paypal. It's a specifically bought space, not google.

    God's get rich plan.

    It doesn't exist.

    Luke 21:1-4 (KJV)
    1: And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
    2: And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
    3: And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
    4: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

    PENURY

    PEN'URY, n. L. penuria, from Gr. needy.

    Want of property; indigence; extreme poverty.

    God doesn't want his house made into a market place.

    John 2:13-16 (KJV)
    13: And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
    14: And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
    15: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
    16: And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

    I am aware it doesn't exist.
    I just wondered why we (the BB) are endorsing it by selling as space for it.
    We are, for the sake of money, advertising a false teaching.
