We will never agree BUT we can be in harmony concerning our fellow man and God's forgiveness.
A song sung in harmony can be the epitome of beauty.

The original thread closed at a point where our SDA Bob Ryan was being pressed against the ropes to give an answer concerning SDA Sabbath keeping. He made a few attempts to deflect answering by posting rabbit trials hoping I would chase after them, but I will give him another chance here to prove his position on SDA Sabbath keeping as it relates to salvation.
Here is the yet to be answered question...(hint, the answer is either "yes" or "no")
Before you declare I am wrong, tell me, what...
Hello all to my IBF friends:
I know I know, some are you are still angry at Billy Graham, the New Evangelicals, and the SBC for what you believe is there liberalism. But if you have been following us since 1979 you know we have and are coming a long way. Anyway, here is a short article not exactly an apology but a good bullet point piece telling why we have decided to stay. I thought you might want to read it.
Why Stay in the SBC?
Uncle Billy finally accepted my invitation to Church this past Sunday. The pastor preached a sermon on the Prodigal Son, and we sang, Just as I Am for a good 20 minutes while the pastor urged anyone who wanted to "accept Jesus into his heart" to come up front. Three people walked the aisle, but uncle Billy didn't budge from the mauve-cushioned pew.
Q: Has God done everything in His power to save uncle Billy?
Q: What does uncle Billy lack that the three others did not?
Rom 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Rom 10:13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
It is not only our responsibility to believe in Jesus to be saved but we must call on the name of the Lord. We must pray and confess our repentance.
Not too long ago my church decided to change the name of the church for several reasons (I will mention those reasons). We went from Grace Missionary Baptist Church to New City Church. Because we took the name 'Baptist" out of our name, many of our brethren from other sister churches have given us a hard time because of it. A pastor even accused us of not being Baptist because we took the name "Baptist" out of our name.
Reasons why we changed our name:
1. There were too many churches...
There is no such animal as Libertarian Free WIll. It is a logical impossibility. If you disagree, state your case.
1. Choices are either caused or uncaused.
2. If a choice is uncaused, then it springs from nothing and is, therefore, morally irrelevant.
3. Choices are morally relevant.
4. Therefore, choices are caused (and therefore necessary).
5. The causes of choices are either chosen or not chosen.
6. If the causes of choices are chosen, then an infinite regress of...
The Lordship Salvation controversy dominated seminaries and bible colleges in the late 1980's when John MacArthur published his book, "The Gospel According to Jesus" in 1988. The argument itself can trace its beginning decades earlier, but it became a full-blown controversy after MacArthur's book. The controversy split churches, seminaries, and even well-respected theologians and preachers. While the temperature of the controversy has dropped over the years, its substance still remains....
Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I...
