When looking closely at the life of Christ & the apostles in the four gospels & Acts there are at least 89 instances of Christ and his associates doing evangelism. 77 took place in the context of contact evangelism. Some notable examples are Matt 5-7, & Matt 9:35. Also when Christ sent out his followers he sent them out as contact evangelists (Mt 10; Lk 10:1-16). Also not to forget his explicit command to preach the gospel to those that they did not already know (Mk 16:15, Acts 1:8). The...
I have been subjected to some horrible worship songs over the years, but the stuff being pumped out in recent years seems to be devoid of any theology.
I went to a local Christian College and the worship leader played a song that literally made me laugh out loud at the emptiness of the song. (I just told the pentacostals in the group that I was struck with holy laughter. [emoji23])
What has happened? Why has church music become empty of theology?
By the way...here's the song I laughed at.
The intent if this thread to explore in the Scriptures the techniques God may use, in particular bait and switch, from the unregenerate world perspective.
Generally speaking the term, bait and switch, is viewed as deceitful manipulation. One where the reward is often switched to a lesser value then what the enticement of the bait suggests. But does God use such a tactic?
Is there times in the ministry of Paul, Peter, John ... in which God baited the hook and then switched the reward?...
Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Job trivia. The given name Job is mentioned 3 times in the Old Testament outside the book of Job, and once in the New Testament. Uz, as a person's name, is mentioned 4 times in the Old Testament.
Where does Job fit on the timeline of biblical history?
As I write I am at Denvers PrideFest. There are THOUSANDS of lost souls out here. I have almost passed out 300 million dollar bill gospel tracts and a handful of Cartoon tracts stamped with my contact info. 300 million dollar bills was not enough and I could easily have brought 1000 tracts and passed that many out in a few hours. In a sense the million dollar bill gospel tract will at least present the gospel to a lost people group living in sin that will not hear a open air sermon nor any...
This study explains why it is a sin to eat or drink blood, along with the meat of any animal that still has its blood. The study can be found in English here The Sin of the Consumption of Blood | Wisdom of God or in Spanish here El Pecado de Consumir Sangre | Sabiduria de Dios . Let us begin a discussion on these matters.
The term "worship leader" has been a troubling term for me.
Perhaps it is not for you, but here is a short list of the problems with the term as I see it for Baptist churches.
1). It is not a Biblical office that should be leading the congregation. Only ministers (pastors, bishops, evangelists, teachers ...).
2) From the time of Sinai, worship leaders have opposed the righteousness of God in favor of idols. Even to the point of murder and riot, the worship leaders have been anti...
Are there are any Catholics on this forum? I am a Baptized Catholic who attends the local Catholic parish on Saturday Vigil Mass. I also attend the local Baptist Church on Sunday mornings. I am both Catholic and Baptist. I am a Baptist as the result of having been Baptized via immersion on 21 May after worship at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings.
THE ZIONIST ISRAEL-WORSHIPPING AMERICAN CHURCH?!
By John Henry

Excerpts From An Anti-Israel Preacher:
"Modern Zionism and Talmudic Judaism are nothing more than the Phariseeism of the New Testament. And it is just as evil now as it was then; and never forget that Neoconism is mostly owned and operated by Zionism and Talmudic Judaism. By worshipping Zionist Israel, the modern Church is actually worshipping in the 'synagogue of Satan.' (Rev. 2:9; 3:9)"
