There is so much negativity on the Baptist Board right now, even on this "Fundamental Baptist Forum" which was created as a refuge for fundamentalists. I thought I'd start a positive thread. So please post here about blessings and help you have received from independent Baptists.
Some years ago, someone who no longer posts here asked me in essence, John, why do you defend them? Here is what I answered him.
Why do I defend Fundamentalism? I was raised by my IFB parents (an IFB pastor...
What an exciting time of the year and its awesome reading about those finishing their degree from a seminary. I would like some opinions of the following seminaries. I am interested in Houston based seminaries and I welcome any and all comments about any of these Houston based schools.
I am looking to obtain a MA in Christian Education.
Dallas Theological Seminary (I have read a lot about the quality of education but is it worth the cost?)
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (I...
Does God not hold the curse of the fall/Law against anyone any more due to the atoning death of Christ on the Cross, basically we all got a clean slate with God, no longer His emernies...
Did that apply JUST to those who would make up the redeemed of the Lord, that others still are NOT reconciled back with God via the Cross?
Rom 14:11 It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' " 12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
Phil 2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth...
"Pastor" Steve actually believes this and he has scripture to "prove" it. He also states that it is blasphemous to use the title "Master" for oneself.
Evidently he believes all teens should be married by the age of 18 or 19!
This video is an hour long. Just pretend it is the "Tonight Show" w/ Jay Leno get a bucket of popcorn and have a good laugh.
Will God regenerate His elect, chosen before foundation of World, even IF they never heard the Gospel/placed faith in Christ?
If yopu hold that he indeed does that today
Why even necessity to Evangelize?
IF John Calvin is held up as being Mr Calvinsit, one MUST read to appreciate the theological views of Calvinism...
WHAT Theologian(s) from the Arminian camp would the personthat one MUST read?
Who would be seen as Mr Arminianist?
just asking what would be a good systematic theology for the Arminian viewpoint?
I thought the topic of the resurrection thread still had somewhere to go, so I started a new thread here.
This was from JesusFan (who I wasn't able to answer on the other thread).
You seem to have a real big problem with the Biblical truth of the Incarnation...
God DID become Human Flesh, and walked among us...
He DID die as a sin bearer, for the sins of Humanity upon the Cross, paying sin debt in full. Propiation for whole World...
I don't have any problem with the Incarnation. On the...
#2. For the most part in this universe the will of God is being completely thwarted.
According to most "non-cals" God did not will suffering, sin, death, calamity, hell, etc...
Yet every single day about 70,000 people die, trillions upon trillions of sins are committed, the amount of suffering is immeasurable, calamity and chaos is every where, and the fires of hell are unquenched.
So God certainly did not get his way in this universe. He built it but he never intended for...
"Arminian 'grace!' How strange the sound, Salvation hinged on me. I once was lost, then turned around, Was blind, then chose to see.
"What 'grace' is it that calls for choice, Made from some good within? That part that wills to heed God's voice, Proved stronger than my sin.
"Thru many ardent gospel pleas, I sat with heart of stone. But then some hidden good in me, Propelled me toward my home.
"When we've been there ten thousand years, Because of what we've done. We've no less days...
