    Was the BB server down last night (Aug 14th)? I tried over the course of 4 hrs. to get on. Either the page would not come up at all, or else I got a blank blue page that had "Baptist Board/The Truth Shall Set You Free" at the top but nothing else!

    I don't think it was my computer, because I was able to get to other sites.

    The truth is that it was down and did you feel "set free"?

    Glad to see I wasn't the only one. I tried from about 7pm until midnight, when I gave up.

    It always bugs me to see that, the verse in KJV is, "John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    The difference is being born again, this time MADE free instead of being old self, just SET free. It's probably just me???

    In fact, LeBuick, my very smart sister said something about this to me a few weeks ago -- that so many people quote this as "set free" instead of "make free." She thinks there is a subtle difference -- being "made" free shows that God is at work in the believer doing the redemption and sanctification, whereas "set free" is just letting someone out of prison. God does so much more than that.

    A subtle yet might difference!

    Maybe the BB could change it? :smilewinkgrin:

    I meant " subtle yet mighty difference," but there's no edit button up here in these rarified parts where no one makes mistakes! :tongue3:

    Yes, I had a prefessor in the Siminary that spent a lot of time on this. He was very passionate about the difference which is why is sticks to me so well. Now when I see or hear set it really sticks out like a giant boo-boo...

    I agree with your sister, one is re-made free and is a new creature when he is done.

    I'm not very technical minded but I believe it was probably broke. :wavey: :laugh:

    Now, I heard someone else say it was down but I don't want to spread any unsubstantiated rumors... You know, we Baptist will gossip if we're not careful...

    As they used to sing on "Hee-Haw:

    "Now we're not ones to go 'round spreadin' rumors,
    As you can see, we're not the gossipin' kind!
    No! You won't never hear one of us repeatin' gossip,
    So you'd better be sure and listen close the first time!"

    I kept trying ever so often to answer a post, and after about six hours (about six attempts) I made connection. Seems to be OK now.

    As for FREE, I agree with Brother Bob. We are not gonna' be; we are free from sin, else we could not be in the Body of Christ.

    I see nothing wrong with "set free". We are not working on being "set free", for Jesus Christ has already made it possible for us to be "set free" through His faith. We know we have been "set free", for He tells us so. So knowing we are "set free", not gonna' be "set free" has the same connotation as we are free, or have been made free.

    Those that are "being made free" are as those in the Old Testament, that need to keep on working for this is "conditional" salvation. Christ Jesus is now seated next to His Father in heaven. He has already done His part and all He asks today is for us to believe on Him for our Salvation.

    Hello All,

    Our family moved from TX to WA and I am finally able to spend more time here.

    To answer your question the BB was down on Aug 14th because of a network failure at our Datacenter.

    As far as the BB slogan, we have considered it but it is not top of the priority list right now.

    Those that are "being made free" are as those who read thier Bible...

    Jn 8:32*And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Jn 8:33*They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

    Ro 6:18*Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    Ro 6:22*But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

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

    1Co 12:13*For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

    Gal 5:1*Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
