Can you tell us what kind of Baptist unions you have in the United States in terms of strictness in social and theological life?
Do you have any Baptist unions in which Christian sisters are required to walk with their heads covered according to the command of the Apostle Paul?
Are there any unions in which alcohol is prohibited and in general how do you treat it?
Unions in which they deny participation in politics or...
It is argued by some, that, if God were to “will, desire, or wish” for something, then this will always happen. And, if it does not, then somehow it is seen as a “failure” on God’s part.
Using this line of argument, verses like 1 Timothy 3-4, and 2 Peter 3:9, which speaks of the “will, desire”, of God, in the salvation of the lost, it is assumed that because God so “desires or wills” “every human being”, to be “saved”, then they “must” be. But, as we know that “every human being”, will not...
A clear distinction must be established between the Gospel spoken in Scripture to the Jews and the same Gospel spoken to Gentiles. The distinction lies with different language and imagery being used upon these two groups since each had their own world view.
Jesus spoke only the language of Law and Jewish heritage to His people, although there were indeed a few Gentiles to whom He ministered, such as the Greek Syrophoenician Woman, and the Centurion.

Robert Dick Wilson on the Pentateuch, from his book A Scientific Investigation of the Old Testament, page 11:
“...the conservative position is, in general, that the Canon of the books of the Old Testament was completed in the fifth century B. C., before the succession of the prophets ceased. As to the particular portions of the Old Testament, their view is :
“1. That the Pentateuch as it stands is historical and from the time of Moses; and that Moses was its real author, though it may have...
The witch seemed surprised and terrified that Samuel actually came.
Reminds me of the movie “Ghost”, where the medium (obviously a scam artist) is terrified when she made “contact”.
Do you believe she was able to summon spirits, or was this a one time event allowed by God for Saul?
Does this have any bearing on our understanding of heaven or state of our spirits after death?
Exodus 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
Do you believe that Pharaoh's magicians were actually able to change their rods into real serpents or do you think that there was some kind of deception in what they did?
